Science News from around the World

世界各地新闻简报

Hi, I’m Scott Hershberger, with Scientific American as an American Association for the Advancement of Science Mass Media Science and Engineering Fellow. And here’s a short piece from the September 2020 issue of the magazine, in the section called Advances: Dispatches from the Frontiers of Science, Technology and Medicine. The article is titled “Quick Hits,” and it’s a rundown of some stories from around the globe.

大家好,我是《科学美国人》的斯科特·赫什伯格,美国科学促进会大众传媒科学与工程研究员。这是本杂志2020年9月号的一篇短文,标题为《进展:来自科学、技术和医学前沿的报告》。这篇文章的标题是“快速点击”,它是一些来自世界各地的故事的概要。

From Argentina:

The earliest dinosaurs laid soft-shelled eggs, paleontologists say. A new chemical analysis of a more than 200-million-year-old fossilized egg from Patagonia—and a clutch of more recent eggs from Mongolia, found in the Gobi Desert—revealed a thin film matching the characteristics of modern soft-shelled eggs.

阿根廷:

古生物学家说,最早的恐龙会下软壳蛋。研究人员对来自巴塔哥尼亚的距今超过2亿年的蛋化石以及在戈壁沙漠中发现的来自蒙古的近代恐龙蛋进行了新的化学分析,发现了一层与现代软壳蛋特征相匹配的薄膜。

From England:

Archaeologists found that 20 deep shafts, previously thought to be natural sinkholes and ponds, were dug by Neolithic humans. The shafts form a circle two kilometers in diameter, with the Durrington Walls monument at its center, just three kilometers from Stonehenge.

英国:

考古学家发现,新石器时代的人类挖出了20个深坑,这些深坑之前被认为是天然的天坑和池塘。这些竖井形成一个直径两公里的圆形,杜灵顿墙纪念碑在中心,距离巨石阵只有三公里。

From Brazil:

Researchers documented the largest lightning bolt ever recorded. The “mega-flash,” which extended for more than 700 kilometers in southern Brazil in 2018. was detected by a new advanced weather satellite in geostationary orbit.

巴西:

研究人员记录了有史以来最大的闪电。2018年,“超级闪光”在巴西南部延伸了700多公里,被一颗位于地球静止轨道上的先进气象卫星探测到。

From Israel:

Researchers sequenced DNA samples from the Dead Sea Scrolls, identifying fragments made from sheep skin and others made from cow hide. The technique could help match fragments together and unravel the artifacts’ geographic origins.

以色列:

研究人员对死海古卷的DNA样本进行了排序,确定了由羊皮和牛皮制成的碎片。这项技术可以帮助将碎片拼在一起,解开这些文物的地理起源。

From Indonesia:

Scientists identified an elusive nose-horned dragon lizard in the forests of North Sumatra. Despite appearing in the mythology of the indigenous Bataks, the visually striking species had been spotted by scientists only once before—almost 130 years ago.

印度尼西亚:

科学家在北苏门答腊岛的森林中发现了一种难以捉摸的鼻角龙蜥蜴。尽管土著巴塔克人出现在神话中,但科学家们只在130年前发现过一次这种引人注目的物种。

And from Australia:

Submarine drones uncovered an extensive system of underwater “rivers” of dense, salty water along Australia’s continental shelf. These flows carry organic matter from the coast into the deep ocean, and their volume varies seasonally, peaking in winter.

澳大利亚:

无人潜航器在澳大利亚的大陆架上发现了一大片密集咸水的水下“河流”。这些水流将有机物质从海岸带入深海,其体积随季节变化,在冬季达到峰值。

That was “Quick Hits.” I’m Scott Hershberger.
