“This plan is a no-go.” 「この計画はダメだ。」

“This area is a no-go zone.” 「この場所は立ち入り禁止だ。」


The phrase “no-go” brings to mind the “go/no-go” check used when launching space shuttles. If everyone answers “go” then all the systems are ready for launch. But the phrase is older, referring to places where you aren’t allowed to go or a situation that doesn’t work.
