艾伦·古斯(Alan Guth)名言

The Big Bang theory says nothing about what banged, why it banged, or what happened before it banged.

大爆炸理论没有说明什么爆炸,为什么爆炸,或者爆炸前发生了什么。

If one just tried to invent a universe on one's own, it would probably end up being a much less colorful and interesting universe than the one that we live in.

如果一个人只是试图自己创造一个宇宙,那么它最终可能会成为一个比我们生活的宇宙少很多色彩和趣味性的宇宙。

From a theoretical point of view, it is very hard to imagine how gravity could avoid being quantized.

从理论上讲,很难想象重力是如何避免量子化的。

If we assume there is no maximum possible entropy for the universe, then any state can be a state of low entropy.

如果我们假设宇宙没有可能的最大熵,那么任何状态都可以是低熵状态。

When one studies the properties of atoms, one found that the reality is far stranger than anybody would have invented in the form of fiction. Particles really do have the possibility of, in some sense, being in more than one place at one time.

当人们研究原子的性质时,人们发现现实远比任何人以虚构的形式创造出来的都陌生。从某种意义上说,粒子确实有可能同时存在于多个地方。

In high school, I was the best broad jumper on our team, and I kind of thought that when I got to MIT, I'd probably still be the best broad jumper, 'cause why do broad jumpers come to MIT? But it turned out to actually be the other way around. There was another person in my class who could jump about 3 feet further than I could.

高中时,我是我们队里最棒的跳远运动员,我有点想,当我到了麻省理工学院,我可能还是最棒的跳远运动员,因为为什么跳远运动员会来麻省理工学院?但结果却是相反的。我班上还有一个人能比我跳得远3英尺。
