The Cold War is long over. But there is still some clean-up to do, including cleaning up nuclear missiles.

The U.S. plans to reduce the total number of land-based nuclear missiles by 2018. This will satisfy terms of an arms treaty the U.S. signed with Russia in 2011.

The northern U.S. state of North Dakota has been a traditional home to many of those land-based missiles. It is a part of the state's Cold War history that officials, residents, and visitors, enjoy.

尽管冷战已经过去很久了,现在仍然有很多善后工作要做,比如包括清除核导弹。

美国政府计划在2018年,大幅度的降低陆基核导弹的数量。此举正符合与俄国在2011年签订的军备条款条约。

美国北达科达州北部已经成为大部分路基核导弹的传统安置之地。而这正是国家冷战史中政府官员,居民和游客所欣然接受的部分。

North Dakota. An Out-of-the-way State.

Far from densely populated cities on the most northern edge of the United States, was one of the most secretive and dangerous places on the planet for many years. The state is called North Dakota.

North Dakota's distance from urban centers made it the perfect choice for a nuclear land-based missile site during the Cold War. The lives of millions depended on what happened with the deadly weapons stored there.

北达科达州。一个偏僻的状态。

远离高密度人口聚集的市区,位于美国最北边的边缘地带,很多年中,可以说是世界上最密闭也是最危险的地方。这个地方就是北达科达州。

The Cold War was the name often used for the severe tensions between the United States and the former Soviet Union. And during that Cold War period, the name for this missile site was November-33. It was home to a long-distance missile with a nuclear warhead.

冷战这个名称经常被用来代指存在于美国与前苏联之间的紧张局势。而且在冷战期间,数字-33就是导弹发射场。这是一个放置配有导弹头的远程导弹的地方。

Alvin Jaeger is secretary of state in North Dakota.

"I think there was kind of a standing joke that North Dakota was actually the third largest power in the world in terms of the nuclear capacity that we had here."

阿尔文耶格是北达科达州的国务卿。

“我认为那种关于北达科达州因为存有大量的核武器而成为世界第三强的说法实在是发笑至极。”
