亚当·里斯(Adam Riess)名言

We know there is gravity because apples fall from trees. We can observe gravity in daily life. If we could throw an apple to the edge of the universe, we would observe it accelerating.

我们知道引力是因为苹果从树上掉下来。 我们可以在日常生活中观察重力。 如果我们可以将苹果扔到宇宙的边缘,我们会观察到它在加速。

Until the 1990s, there were few reliable observations about movement at the scale of the entire universe, which is the only scale dark energy effects. So dark energy could not be seen until we could measure things very, very far away.

直到1990年代,关于整个宇宙尺度的运动的可靠观测很少,这是唯一规模的暗能量效应。 因此,只有在我们可以非常非常远地测量事物之前,才能看到暗能量。

During my time at Watchung Hills Regional High School, I was fortunate to have a number of teachers who inspired me and filled me with enthusiasm for learning.

在Watchung Hills区域高中期间,我很幸运有很多老师启发了我,并使我充满了学习的热情。

One of the most exciting things about dark energy is that it seems to live at the very nexus of two of our most successful theories of physics: quantum mechanics, which explains the physics of the small, and Einstein's Theory of General Relativity, which explains the physics of the large, including gravity.

暗能量最令人兴奋的事情之一是它似乎生活在我们两个最成功的物理学理论的联系中:量子力学解释了小物理学,而爱因斯坦广义相对论则解释了相对论。
