商品詳細介紹Product Introduction

片名:科學新知識解密 (I)
           THE QUEST FOR KNOWLEDGE (VII)
 

不管是為了改善自己的生活,或者出於純然的好奇,人類一直渴望獲得新知識,並深究其中緣故,少了科學界的新發現,人類無法以如此快速的速度演進,少了科學界、學術界傳達的知識,我們將無法想像當今生活的模樣。創新思維和嶄新洞見以前所未見的新知識正快速和我們的生活互相交織。透過影片,我們得以知道科學家、技術人員和發明家如何尋找增長人類知識的新途徑,他們探索新知的過程將透過這些引人入勝的影片精彩呈現。
 
 

 

♦ PM2.5危險沙塵暴的危害
   Dangerous Dust from the Desert
 
 

過量的水消耗和集約化的農業方法,讓土壤變乾並變成易被風帶走的灰塵。這是一個嚴重的問題,特別是在北非和中東。中東的戰爭和其他衝突也對土壤產生了破壞性影響。來自這些地區的灰塵經常被戰爭產生的有毒物質污染。當風把這些灰塵帶到大氣中,並攜至數千公里,將成為大規模的全球空氣污染的問題之一。

Due to excessive water consumption and intensive agriculture methods, soils are drying out and turning to dust that can be easily carried away by the wind. This is a serious problem, particularly in North Africa and the Middle East. Wars and other conflicts in the Middle East have also had a devastating effect on the soil. And dust from these areas is often contaminated with the toxic substances that warfare generates. Winds carry this dust into the atmosphere, where it can be carried for thousands of kilometres – becoming part of a global air pollution problem.

♦ 隱藏的人體筋膜組織
    The Hidden World of Fascia
 
 

筋膜是纖維結締組織的帶狀或片狀。長期以來,筋膜被認為僅僅是被動結構材料,被外科醫生忽視並被解剖學家丟棄。但今天的專家知道,我們的結締組織就像一個網,可以保持我們的骨骼,器官和肌肉,並給予他們支持和靈活性。筋膜被認為是許多疾病和疼痛類型的原因,但它們也是癒合開始的地方。

The Hidden World of Fascia
Fascia is a band or sheet of fibrous connective tissue. For a long time, fasciae were regarded as merely passive structural material and were ignored by surgeons and discarded by anatomists. But experts today know that our connective tissue is like a net that holds our bones, organs and muscles and gives them support and flexibility. The fascia is considered the cause of many disorders and types of pain, but they are also the place where healing can begin.

♦ 海洋微塑膠的危害
    Microplastics in the Ocean
 
 

自從塑膠材料開始進入我們所有日常生活的領域以來,大量的合成聚合物材料最終進入了世界的海洋。通過波浪作用,太陽輻射和其他過程,塑料逐漸衰變成更小的碎片,最後成為微觀小顆粒。這種大小的碎片進入許多海洋生物的食物鏈中,並最終成為我們的食物。而透過這些塑料廢物分散在全世界海洋中的細菌和其他微生物也構成了另一個嚴重的問題。

Ever since plastic began its triumphal advance into virtually all areas of everyday life, enormous quantities of synthetic polymeric material have ended up in the world’s oceans.Through wave action, solar radiation, and other processes, plastics gradually decay into ever smaller pieces, ending up as microscopically small particles. It is primarily fragments of this size that enter the food chain of many marine organisms, ultimately getting into our food. Bacteria and other microorganisms, dispersed around the world's oceans by plastic waste, constitute another serious problem.

♦ 3C科技測量情緒
    Measuring Emotion
 
 

科技使我們變得透明。互聯網知道我們在哪裡,我們喜歡什麼,我們買什麼。現在,全世界的科學家們都在實證測量面部表情,語言和手勢,努力使我們的情緒在技術上清晰可辨。這些分析的結果正在尋找廣泛的應用。通過測量情緒,廣告業正在努力使營銷策略更有效。但這些新的可能性對我們有什麼影響?解碼情緒語言有多危險?

Technology has made us transparent. The Internet knows where we were, what we like, what we buy. And scientists all over the world are now working on making our emotions technically legible by empirically measuring facial expressions, language and gestures. The results of such analyses are finding a wide range of applications.  By measuring emotion, the advertising industry is trying to make marketing strategies more effective. But what are these new possibilities doing with us? How dangerous is it to decode the language of emotions?

♦ 遠征北極的科學研究
    Expedition to the Arctic
 
 

Vagabond是一艘遠洋遊艇,專為極地任務而設。它可以輕鬆地進入高密度的冰山和許多淺灘的海洋區域,這一特徵尤其受到Jochen Halfar等氣候和海洋研究專家的青睞。Jochen Halfar正在追求一個雄心勃勃的目標。他利用他在Vagabond船員的幫助下在格陵蘭島和加拿大北部海岸收集的藻類,想要編制一個長達數百年的北極氣候年表。這也將有助於得知世界氣候未來發展的重要結論。

The Vagabond is an ocean-going yacht specially equipped for polar missions. The Vagabond can easily negotiate marine regions with a high density of icebergs and numerous shallows, a feature much appreciated in particular by climate and marine researchers like Jochen Halfar. Using the algae he collects on the coasts of Greenland and northern Canada with the help of the crew of the Vagabond, he wants to compile a centuries-long chronology of the Arctic climate. This, he hopes, will also allow important conclusions to be drawn about the future development of the world’sclimate.

♦ 解密匈牙利特殊洞穴系統
    The Secrets of the Molnár János Cave
 
 

匈牙利首都布達佩斯以其溫泉浴場而聞名。不太為人所知的是,在這個有近兩百萬居民的城市正下方,你會發現一個巨大的洞穴系統。數十萬年來,從地球內部升起的熱水已經擴大了岩石的裂縫,形成了地下通道的分支網絡。生物學家最近還在洞穴中發現了兩種不為人知的甲殼動物物種,為了解此物種演化的謎團,國際團隊正進行更深入的系統深度探險。

The Hungarian capital Budapest is famous for its thermal baths. What’s less well known is that directly beneath this city of nearly two million inhabitants you’ll find a vast system of caves.Biologists also recently discovered two previously unknown species of crustacean in the caves that have apparently developed independently from relatives on the surface since an Ice Age period over a hundred thousand years ago. In order to solve the riddle of his evolutionary process, international teams are undertaking newer expeditions into the depths of the system.
