Yes, There Could Be Life on Mars

(2006-04-19 11:24:33)


Yes, There Could Be Life on Mars
是的,火星上有可能曾有生命
Mars is not, it seems, the dry old planet we once believed it to be.
火星并不是我们曾认为它像看上去的那样是一个干旱古老的星球。

Astronauts who are expected to go there in the next decade may find plenty of water to slake their thirst.在未来十年中,有望登陆火星的宇航员们也许会找到大量的用以解渴的水。

And with water present the chances of finding some sort of life on Mars are much brighter.
有了水就表明找到其他火星生物的机会更光明。
This is the view of 40 geologists who have been analyzing thousands of pictures and other scientific information obtained by robot explorers in the 'sixties and 'seventies.
四十几位地址学家发表了这样的观点。他们一直在分析由探索机器人于六七十年代获得的数以万记的图像资料和科学信息。
To begin with, scientists thought the Red Planet was as lifeless as the Moon, with dust storms swirling over vast sandy deserts.
始于尘沙笼罩下的广阔沙漠的图片,科学们认为这个“红色星球”像月球一样没有生命, But now the picture is very different with mountains and valleys carved by mighty glaciers and torrential rivers rushing and rumbling deep underground.但是现在的情景却很不同,有了冰川和大河及地表深处隆隆奔腾的河流冲刷而成的千沟万壑。

In a report on the analysis of the Martian pictures, Dr Michael Carr of the US Geological Survey comments, "I am convinced there's lots of water on Mars." Any surface water will be in the form of ice. But it could save explorers having to take so much water with them.

在一份火星图像分析后的报告中,美国地址研究机构的迈克尔博士称:“我确信火星上有水的存在。”所有地表水都以冰的形式出现,但这使得探索者不必携带大量的水。

The report says that Mars probably had a warmer climate in ages past, due to its axis having been more steeply tilted towards the Sun.报告称在过去的年代中火星也许曾有过一个相对温暖的气候,那时它的地轴冲着太阳倾斜的角度更大。

No convincing signs of plant or animal life have been detected by instruments soft landed on Mars, although only the immediate vicinity of landing vehicles could be examined.

虽然软着陆在星球上的探索仪器还没有发现令人信服的植物或动物生命的痕迹,但也仅是检查了仪器附近的区域。
