商品詳細介紹Product Introduction

片名:世界新知探索【Ⅱ】 The Quest for Knowledge (Ⅱ)
 

人類總是渴求知識 - 無論是為了改善生活環境或是出於追根究柢的好奇心,沒有科學的發現,人類進化就不會如此快速;沒有科學知識與學識,我們就不會有今日的生活。將創新和新見解結合到生活中的步調是越來越快,世界新知探索系列節目將為您探索科學家、技術人員和發明家如何讓人類增進知識。
 
Man has always had a thirst for knowledge – whether it be to improve his life and circumstances or out of sheer curiosity and the urge to get to the bottom of things. Without scientific discoveries, humanity would not have evolved at such a rapid pace. Life as we know it today would be unthinkable without the knowledge we gain through science and scholarship. Innovations and new insights are integrated into our lives in ever quicker succession. We watch scientists, technicians and inventors as they look for ways to increase human knowledge. These fascinating films accompany them in their Quest for Knowledge.

 

♦ 行為生物學-探索動物的高智慧
 Intelligent Creatures
 
 

直到最近,動物行為的研究被視為是聰明的,動物是有自我意識的。最近研究顯示動物會以各種不同方式表現出高智慧的動物行為而其智慧能做到許多我們意想不到的表現,是時候修正我們對動物行為的瞭解嗎?

Until recently, behavioral research deemed an animal to be intelligent if it is aware of itself. But intelligence manifests itself in many different ways, and recent studies identify intelligent behavior in all kinds of creatures. Is it time to revise our understanding of animals?

♦ 歐洲巨象-探索失落的世界
 Europe's Giant Elephants - Exploring a Lost Biotope
 
 

12萬年以前,巨大的大象漫遊歐洲的平原,在德國一個壯觀的考古發現揭露了很多關於動物和氣候的相關訊息,研究顯示早期人類試圖維護自己在動物王國的生存空間,而這些訊息已經使得科學家大大的改寫人類歷史。

120,000 years ago, giant elephants roamed the plains of Europe. A spectacular archaeological find in Germany reveals a great deal about the fauna and climate of that era, during which early humans tried to assert themselves over the animal kingdom.

♦ 脆弱地表的土壤結皮研究
 The Earth's Sensitive Surface
 
 

生物土壤表皮的苔蘚、地衣和藍藻覆蓋廣大的地球表面,他們抵禦侵蝕和破壞, 作為吸收地球的溫室氣體二氧化碳,這些小又不起眼的生物地表,是地球極為重要但又脆弱的皮層。

Biological crusts of mosses, lichens and cyanobacteria cover vast areas of the Earth's surface like a skin. They protect against erosion and destruction – and act as a brake on global warming to a much greater extent than previously thought. But much too little is known about these sensitive layers.

♦ 仿生學-大自然是最好的工程師
 Bionics - Is Nature the Better Architect?
 
 

越來越多的科學家們正在研究如何解決自然世界複雜的技術問題,他們的研究領域,被稱為仿生學。在大自然中尋找的解決方案特別值得重視其耐用性和承重結構,例如,敏感的電子產品如何安全環保的送到客戶?

Scientists are increasingly examining how complex technical problems are solved in the natural world. Their field of research is known as bionics. Looking at nature's solutions is especially worthwhile when exploring durability and load-bearing structures. How, for example, can sensitive electronic products be transported to customers in a secure and environmentally- friendly way?

♦ 人類知識的障礙
 Barriers to Knowledge
 
 

科學的進步讓環境在各方面得以預測,但如果我們仔細觀察自然科學或人文科學詮釋世界的方式,很明顯的這兩者在中心思想上有所差異:科學家與人文學者各抱持著不同的理論和概念,對時間、意識、生活以及現實的描述無法取得一致性。主要的問題之一是客觀世界的事物和主觀世界的認知、思維和感覺及,對人的洞察力產生不同方面的影響。

Scientific progress has made many aspects of our environment predictable, but if we take a closer look at the models used by the sciences and humanities explain the world, it becomes apparent that they exhibit gaps in central areas: the various theories and concepts held by scientists and scholars cannot all be combined to generate a coherent, consistent description of terms such as time, consciousness, life and reality. One of the main problems is that the objective world of things and the subjective world of perception, thought and sensation contribute different aspects to human insight.

♦ 數字遊戲的科學
 The Numbers Game
 
 

數學使我們能夠在日常生活中,大量使用複雜的預測和計算,但是,數學也很難處理一些複雜的自然現象。數學物理現象和自然界之間的關係是什麼呢?

Mathematics enables us to make complex forecasts and calculations that are of great use in our everyday lives. But maths has a hard time getting a handle on certain complex natural phenomena. What is the relationship between physical reality and the laws of mathematics?

♦ 量子力學的難題
 The Essential Conundrum
 
 

真空真的是空的嗎?黑洞是什麼?愛因斯坦的相對論和量子力學的理論,提供了精確的答案,但他們互相矛盾,因此物理學家正在尋找兩者理論一致的公式。

Is a vacuum really empty? What are Black Holes? Einstein's theory of relativity and quantum mechanics provide precise answers, but they contradict each other. Physicists are searching for the formula that unites both theories.
