NASA to Discover Life in Outer Space

美国宇航局即将发现外星生物

NASA scientists say they are closer than ever to finding life beyond Earth.

美国宇航局的宇航员表示找寻外星生物的进度又迈进一大步。

Several leading NASA scientists spoke to a gathering July 14th at NASA headquarters in Washington,D.C.The scientists discussed the space agency’s plan to find life in outer space.

7/14在华盛顿 宇航局总部的座谈会中,几位宇航局首席的科学家讨论到找寻外星生物的太空计划。

NASA continues to look for life in the solar system.  That search is centered mostly on Mars and the icy moons of Jupiter and Saturn.  But the scientists mainly discussed the search for life outside the solar system.

宇航局 持续寻找太阳系其它行星的生命迹象,寻找焦点主要摆在火星及木星和土星的冷卫星,但科学家仍重点讨论太阳系以外也可能有生命存在。

NASA Administrator Charles Bolden opened the talk.  He said it is not probable that humans are alone in what he calls “the limitless vastness of the universe."

宇航局局长查尔斯博尔登首先开场表是 在广大浩瀚的宇宙中,不会只有我们人类存在。

The scientists spoke about improvements in search equipment. They noted the Kepler Space Telescope. They said the tool had been critical in expanding knowledge about exoplanets.

宇航员提到随着开普勒太空望远镜观测仪器的进步,将是拓展我们对外行星了解最大关键。

An exoplanet is a planet that orbits a star outside the solar system.  Kepler has discovered most of the 5,000 possible exoplanets, of which almost two thousand have been confirmed.

外行星指的是绕行在太阳系以外的星球,开普勒太空望远镜检测到近5000颗的外行星,其中有2000颗外行星已经被认定。

An Earth-size exoplanet orbits what is called, the “habitable zone” of a star. The habitable zone is an area which could support liquid water on the exoplanet. Liquid water is considered essential for life as we know it.

一颗大小与地球相似的外行星绕行在宜居住带上,而宜居住带上的星球存有液态水,据我们所知液态水是孕育生物的关键。
