导读:

他们的工作不仅很cool,还很cold!

他们要在这片冰封之地打造一个天文学家、科学家等研究人员的极地天堂。如果这世界真有超人,我相信,他们就是!

南极建筑

The altitude is 3,000 meters, the nearest city is almost 1,600 kilometers away, and the steel superstructure is surrounded by over 14 million square kilometers of nothing but ice and snow.

这里的海拔是3000米,最近的城市在几近一千六百公里外,围绕这座钢铁巨型建筑的是一千四百多万平方公里的冰雪。

So why build here in the first place? For scientists, the answer is obvious: the South Pole's unique environment offers incredible opportunities not found anywhere else on Earth. For astronomers, its pristine atmosphere and location at the earth's axis makes this the perfect place to gaze into the heavens. For physicists, the permanent ice sheet will allow them to study mysterious sub-atomic particles that may reveal the very first moments of our universe. Isolated like no other continent on Earth, and with some of the lowest temperatures ever recorded, Antarctica is ideal to investigate man's impact on the climate.

那么为何要在这里建研究站?对科学家而言,答案显而易见:南极独特的环境所提供的非凡机会是地球上其他地方无法比拟的;对天文学家而言,纯净的大气层和在地轴上的位置使其成为观测天象的完美地点;对物理学家来说,终年不化的冰层让他们能研究神秘的次原子粒子,或能看到宇宙混沌初开的原貌。与世隔绝、独一无二的地理位置,加上史上好几次出现的最低气温,南极洲是一个研究人类对气候造成的冲击的理想场所。

But for scientists to work at the South Pole, they'll need to live here, and that will require a unique complex. The South Pole Station will be able to feed and house some 150 people. This new structure will have its own power plant and fuel storage, dining hall and, scattered over more than three square kilometers, will be utilities and laboratories for some of the most sophisticated science ever carried out: a water treatment plant, a highly advanced climate research centre, an enormous mobile drilling rig, and a radio-telescope that will search for clues to the origins of the universe.

但科学家要在南极工作,就得在这里居住,便需要一个独特的建筑群。南极研究站得要解决约150人的食宿问题。这座新建筑将自带发电厂和燃料存储设施、食堂,还有一系列设施和实验室,供科学家们首次展开一些最为复杂的科学研究之需:一座净水处理厂、一座极先进的气候研究中心、一座巨大的活动钻机和一架用来找寻宇宙起源线索的无线电望远镜,它们将分布在三平方公里多的冰面上。
