Chapter 1 Once Upon a Time(5/7)

第一章 很久很久以前(5/7)

 

And how do we know that? We sometimes find their bones, deep in the ground.

我们是怎么知道这些的?因为偶尔在地下深处,我们会找到他们的骨头。

When I was a schoolboy in Vienna I used to visit the Natural History Museum, where I loved to gaze at the great skeleton of a creature called a Diplodocus. An odd name, Diplodocus. But an even odder creature.

当时我还在维也纳读小学。我曾流连于维也纳自然历史博物馆。在那里,我会痴迷的盯着恐龙庞大的骨骼。恐龙,多古怪的名字,但更古怪的是他的身形。

It wouldn't fit into a room at home or even two, for that matter. It was as tall as a very tall tree, and its tail was half as long as a football pitch.

他无法塞进任何一间屋子,甚至两间。他高的像耸天的树木,仅仅是尾巴就有半个足球场那么长。

What a tremendous noise it must have made, as it munched its way through the primeval forest!

想象一下,当他在史前森林中觅食时,会发出多么吵闹的响声。

But we still haven't reached the beginning. It all goes back much further thousands of millions of years. That's easy enough to say, but stop and think for a moment.

可这也不是起源,还要继续向前推进亿万年。说起来很容易,但是静下来想想。

Do you know how long one second is? It's as long as counting: one, two, three. And how about 1,000 million seconds? That's 32 years!

你知道一秒钟有多长吗?就和你数“1,2,3”一样长。所以,你知道要数多久才是10亿秒吗?32年!
