第三册Unit 3AUnderstanding ideas课文再现英汉对照The New Age of Invention新发现时代Interviewer: Good evening, and welcome to Between the Pages. This evening, I’ll be talking to Dr Richard Fairhurst,whose new book The New Age of Invention has just been published. Welcome, Richard!采访人:晚上好,接待来到《字里行间》。今晚的嘉宾是理查德·费尔赫斯特博士,他的新书《新发现时代》刚刚出书。接待您,理查德!Richard: Thank you. It’s a pleasure to be here.理查德:谢谢。

很兴奋能来到这里。Interviewer: I guess you have been asked about the title of your book before. It suggests that the present day is a new age for inventions, but many people might think that the great age of invention is over.采访人:我猜已经有人就书名向您提问了。书名提示现在是发现缔造的新时代,但可能许多人都认为辉煌的发现时代已经竣事了。Richard: Well, that’s an interesting point. There have been golden ages of invention throughout history. Think of the four great inventions in Ancient China: gunpowder, papermaking, printing and the compass. These things changed the world forever. Then there were the great Western inventions: the steam engine, the telephone and the radio. And now, we find ourselves in the great new age of technology.理查德:嗯,这是一个有趣的看法。

历史上泛起过许多发现缔造的黄金时代。想一想中国古代的四大发现:火药、造纸术、印刷术和指南针。

它们永远地改变了世界。然后是西方的伟大发现:蒸汽机、电话和广播。

而现在,我们自己正处于伟大的科技新时代。Interviewer: So are most of the new great inventions tech-based?采访人:所以大多数伟大的新发现都是科技产物吗?Richard: A lot, yes. For example, advances in virtual reality and wearable tech, as well as the flexible battery, mean we should soon be seeing further developments. In addition, important advances have been made in medicine and environmental science thanks to increasing computer power.理查德:是的,许多都是。

好比说,虚拟现实、可穿着科技设备以及柔性电池技术的进步,这意味着我们很快会看到更多相关领域的产物研发。此外,由于盘算性能力的不停提高,医药与情况科学也取得了重要希望。Interviewer: Can you give us some examples?采访人:您能给我们举一些例子吗?Richard: Sure. New inventions like 3D printers have been used to make replacement hearts and bone parts. In terms of the environment, it is now possible to create an intelligent walking house. It is capable of using GPS technology to travel to different places, with computing technology controlling its “legs”. What’s more, huge advances in solar technology mean it can be eco-friendly, too.理查德:固然可以。

3D打印机之类的新发现已经应用于制作移植心脏与部门骨骼。在情况领域,制作智能可移动衡宇现在已成为可能。

它能依靠全球定位系统技术四处移动,盘算机技术则控制着它的“双腿”。此外,太阳能技术的庞大进步也意味着它可以很环保。Interviewer: Impressive stuff! I’ve also been told that you’re an inventor yourself. Is that correct?采访人:真是了不起的发现!我还听说您自己自己也是个发现家,对吗?Richard: Yes, I am, but I’m only one member of a big team—most inventors now work as part of big international teams.理查德:是的,但我只是大团队中的一员——大多数发现家现在都在大型国际团队中事情。

Interviewer: I see. So what is it that inspires us to invent things?采访人:明确了。那么,是什么激励着人们去发现缔造呢?Richard: Most inventions start with recognising a problem that needs a solution. This was no doubt the reason behind the invention of the wheel in ancient times, which much later developed into the car. Now, reduced energy supplies and environmental pollution have led to more advances in the technology of new energy vehicles. But what remains important is that we have an incredible desire to think and create, and that’s the real spirit of invention.理查德:绝大多数发现都是从发现某个需要解决的问题开始的。

古代轮子的发现无疑也是如此,厥后演变为汽车。现在,能源供应紧缩与情况污染推动了新能源汽车技术的进一步生长。不外有一点依旧重要,我们对思考和缔造有着一种极端的盼望,这正是真正的发现精神。

Interviewer: One last question. This is the one everyone really wants to know: will anybody ever invent a time machine?采访人:最后一个问题,也是大家都很想知道的:会有人发现出时光机吗?Richard: I think you’ve been watching too many movies! Nothing like this has been invented yet and I’d say we’re a long way from an invention like that at the moment! But, as they say, “Never say never!”理查德:我以为您影戏看多了!至今尚无类似的发现,而且我认为,我们离这样的发现还远着呢!不外,正如人们所说:“凡事无绝对!”。
