月亮的形状像柠檬?

The Moon is Lemon Shape?


趣味科学

Amusing Science

小时候我们常常说,圆圆的月亮像玉盘,但月亮真的是一个规则的球体吗?据外媒报道,美国加州大学的科学家发现,月亮并非完美的球体,而更像两边凸起的柠檬。

In our childhood, it is well-known to us that the moon is as round as the jade disk. But is the moon a regular sphere indeed? According to the foreign media report, rather than the perfect sphere, the moon is more likely to be the lemon-shape bulging at both ends, discovered by the scientists at the University of California in America.

本报讯 如果要以月亮为本体打一个最科学的比方,那最恰当的喻体一定是柠檬。据英国《每日邮报》报道,在宇航员登月45年后,美国科学家终于发现了月球最真实的形状:略微扁平,一端有隆起

(Guangzhou Daily) Providing you want to compare the moon to something, the most scientific metaphorical object must be lemon. As it is reported by the Daily Mail, 45 years after the astronauts had landed on the moon, American scientists finally found out the most accurate shape of it, that is, slightly flat with one side protruding.

月球表面有怪异隆起

Weird Projection on the Lunar Surface

此前,华盛顿大学的行星科学家布兰德里·乔力夫曾指出月球并非完美的球体,但未能发现其真实形状和形成原因。这个星期,来自加州大学的行星学家伊恩·加里克-贝瑟尔证实了这一说法,并对其成因给出了一个结论。

Before that, Bradley·Joliffe, planetary scientist at Washington University, once pointed out that the moon is not an impeccable sphere. But the real shape and the way it formed remained unknown. This week, planetary scientist Ian Garrick Bethel at the California University demonstrated Bradley’s hypothesis and drew a conclusion of the cause of moon’s shape.

“我们的邻居月球并不是圆的,实际上用柠檬或者水气球来形容它更加贴切。”贝瑟尔说。“你可以想象一个水星球,你旋转它,它就会变得扁平。”

Bethel said:” The moon, our neighbor planet, is actually, more appropriate to be described as the lemon or water balloon instead of a ball.Just imagine a celestial body covered with water. It gets flat once after being whirled.

这份在英国《自然》期刊上发表的研究报告称,月球是在一个火星大小的天体猛烈撞上尚处幼年阶段的地球并向太空发射出滚烫的岩石物质时形成的。这样形成的星体一般呈规则的球形,但恰恰相反,月球正面和背面各有奇怪的隆起,令其看起来像个柠檬。

 The research published on UK——the journal Nature reported what the evolution of the moon was——the Mars-sized celestial body had an strike collision towards the earth being in the initial stage. Then, the collision spurt the super out the high-temperature rock material towards the universe and finally, the moon came into being. Under such circumstances, the celestial body is generally a regular sphere. But on the contrary,bizarre
uplift on both sides of the moon
which makes it looks like a lemon.
