今年修了一堂課,是孫維新老師開的「認識星空」

在課堂上老師放了一部短片,是全球天文年的主題曲,Shoulders of Giants

簡單的歌詞,簡單的旋律,配上一些溫馨的畫面(ex. 一家人在看望遠鏡的樣子...)

除了感動,歌詞中蘊含了一種400年來小小的雄心壯志,正在緩緩發酵

由於短片似乎要付費下載,因此只找到了mp3,也附上歌詞以及翻譯,希望大家品嘗看看

Shoulders of Giants「在巨人肩上」歌詞

翻譯:黃相輔

AstroCappella: Shoulders of Giants
Music and Lyrics by Padi Boyd
2008, The Johannes Kepler Project

It was a calm and cloudless night but it was all still a blur
A shaking of our Universe was just about to occur
It was Summertime... 1609
when Galileo used his telescope for the very first time

長煙一空的平靜夜晚 世界仍一片混沌
我們的宇宙正準備動起來
在那一六零九 夏日夜晚
當伽利略第一次將望遠鏡指向雲漢

and he saw mountains and craters on the moon
and a Milky Way with thousands of stars
and he saw Jupiter, with four tiny moons
he was the only man on Earth that night who knew

他看見月亮上有海有山
千萬繁星匯聚銀河
他看見木星有四衛相伴
亙古秘密此刻唯他曉得

That Copernicus was right
come outside with me tonight
and I can show you wonders of the world
to surprise and delight
I've got my telescope with me
just wait until you see
that on the Shoulders of Giants....
... we'll see beyond!

獻上哥白尼的告白
今夜請隨我出外
我將秀出宇宙壯麗奇觀
讓你大呼精彩
我已掌握自己的望遠鏡
任遨遊直到天明
站在巨人的肩上 宇宙多清晰

The world turns round and round now around 400 years have flown
since Galileo's telescope first focused the unknown
Now we use bigger glass to peer into the past
And we're discovering the Universe's secrets at last

四百年光陰就這麼流過 而世界越變越小
自從伽利略探索未知的初體驗後
更大更好的望遠鏡帶人們窺探古早
而宇宙的奧秘我們終將明瞭

And there are geysers on Saturn's icy moon
and planets circling hundreds of stars
while all the Universe expands like a balloon
from Galileo's tiny scope we've come so far

土星冰封月亮上噴泉在舞動
千百個天地繞著群星轉
當整個宇宙像氣球般漲大
這段旅程我們竟走了這麼遠

Galileo was right
when he looked out in the night
and he discovered wonders of the world
to surprise and delight
I've got my telescope with me
just wait until you see
we'll stand on the Shoulders of Giants...

獻上伽利略的告白
當他往那夜空看
他發現了宇宙壯麗奇觀
讓你大呼精彩
我已掌握自己的望遠鏡
任遨遊直到天明
站在巨人的肩上...

And every step follows the one before
and opens up a new frontier to explore
our 'scopes are dancing in space to see the beauty and grace
Oh, Galileo would approve, that's for sure
And still for me and you we can join in on this too
Just climb up here with me where we'll see more

而我們要循著前人足跡
開拓新的邊疆前往探奇
太空船飛舞在虛空 探索那優雅美景
噢 連伽利略也魂牽夢縈
而你我也能加入這趟奇幻旅行
只要隨我登高一同沐浴星空

It's a calm and cloudless night come outside with me tonight
and I can show you wonders of the world to surprise and delight
I've got my telescope with me just wait until you see (oh, wait until you see)
we'll stand on the Shoulders of Giants (Galileo knew)

長煙一空的平靜夜晚 今夜請隨我出外
我將秀出宇宙壯麗奇觀 讓你大呼精彩
我已掌握自己的望遠鏡 任遨遊直到天明 (任遨遊直到天明)
我們將站在巨人肩上 (伽利略明白)

That Copernicus was right (Johannes)
Come outside with me tonight (Kepler found those)
and I can show you wonders of the world (planetary motions on the)
to surprise and delight (Shoulders of Giants)
I've got my telescope with me (And Isaac)
Just wait until you see (Newton found his)
we'll stand on the Shoulders of Giants (Universal Laws)
(He stood on the Shoulders of Giants...)

...to see beyond!

獻上哥白尼的告白 (約翰尼斯)
今夜請隨我出外 (克卜勒發現)
我將秀出宇宙壯麗奇觀 (行星跳華爾滋)
讓你大呼精彩 (在巨人肩上)
我已掌握自己的望遠鏡 (而牛頓)
任遨遊直到天明 (找到那不朽)
站在巨人的肩上 (萬有引力)
(他站在巨人肩上...)

...宇宙多清晰!
