亚当·里斯(Adam Riess)名言

We've known for a long time that the universe is expanding. But about 15 years ago, my colleagues and I discovered that it is expanding faster and faster. That is, the universe is accelerating, and that was not expected, but it is now attributed to this mysterious stuff called dark energy which seems to make up about 70 percent of the universe.

我们早就知道宇宙在膨胀。但是大约15年前,我和我的同事发现它的发展越来越快。也就是说,宇宙正在加速,这是没有预料到的,但它现在被认为是一种神秘的东西,称为暗能量,似乎占宇宙的70%。

We're really just the frosting on a cake and we don't know what's inside the cake.

我们只是蛋糕上的糖霜,不知道蛋糕里面是什么。

I think the mystery of what's out there in the universe is just very compelling.

我认为宇宙中存在的奥秘是非常令人信服的。

亚当·里斯

It's everywhere, really. It's between the galaxies. It is in this room. We believe that everywhere that you have space, empty space, that you cannot avoid having some of this dark energy.

到处都是,真的。它在星系之间。它在这个房间里。我们相信,无论在哪里,你都有空间,空的空间,你无法避免有一些暗能量。

Your chemistry high school teacher lied to you when they told you that there was such a thing as a vacuum, that you could take space and move every particle out of it.

你的高中化学老师骗了你,他们告诉你有真空,你可以腾出空间,把每一个粒子都从里面移出来。

亚当·里斯

We look at distant exploding stars called supernovae, and we've developed techniques to measure how far away they are and how fast they're moving away from us.

我们观察遥远的爆炸恒星,称为超新星,我们已经开发出技术来测量它们离我们有多远,它们离我们有多快。

Einstein wrestled with a problem back before we even knew the universe was expanding, and he was looking for a way to keep the universe from collapsing. And so he discovered, in his theory of gravity, something like this dark energy - he called it a cosmological constant - could play this role, pushing things away.

在我们还不知道宇宙在膨胀之前,爱因斯坦就与一个问题作了斗争,他正在寻找一种防止宇宙崩溃的方法。所以他发现,在他的引力理论中,类似暗能量的东西,他称之为宇宙常数,可以起到这个作用,把物体推开。

亚当·里斯

Dark energy is incredibly strange, but actually it makes sense to me that it went unnoticed, because dark energy has no effect on daily life, or even inside our solar system.

暗能量是不可思议的奇怪,但事实上,对我来说,它被忽视是有意义的,因为暗能量对日常生活,甚至在我们的太阳系内部都没有影响。
