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.

我们早就知道宇宙正在膨胀。 但是大约15年前,我和我的同事发现它的发展越来越快。 就是说,宇宙正在加速,这是出乎意料的,但现在它被归因于这种被称为暗能量的神秘物质,它似乎构成了宇宙的约70%。

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

我们实际上只是蛋糕上的糖霜,我们不知道蛋糕里面有什么。

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非常引人注目。

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。 在星系之间。 在这个房间里。 我们相信,无论您处在何处,都有空虚的空间,都无法避免拥有一些这种黑暗的能量。

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.

当您的化学高中老师告诉您存在真空之类的东西时,您会撒谎,您可以占用空间并从其中移走所有粒子。

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.

我们观察被称为超新星的遥远爆炸恒星,并且我们已经开发出测量它们离我们有多远以及它们离开我们有多快的技术。

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.

在我们甚至不知道宇宙正在膨胀之前,爱因斯坦就曾为一个问题苦苦挣扎,他正在寻找一种防止宇宙崩溃的方法。 因此,他在引力理论中发现了类似这种暗能量的东西-他称之为宇宙常数-可以起到这一作用,将事物推开。

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.

暗能量令人难以置信的奇怪,但实际上对我来说它没有被注意是有原因的,因为暗能量对日常生活乃至我们太阳系内部都没有影响。
