But they didn't know
that it's filled with
deadly gases and sulfuric acid rain."
Wow, I thought, "This is it! I'm hooked!"
哇 我想啊 "就是这个 我要学！"
There are four hundred billion stars out there
just in our galaxy alone.
If only one out of a million of those had planets
if just one out of a million of those had life
and if just one out of a million of those had intelligent life
there would be literally millions of civilizations out there
it'd be an awful waste of space.
So I was lying there, just looking at the sky.
就这样 我躺在那里 凝望天空
And then I felt something. I don't know.
All I know is that I wasn't alone.
For the first time in my life I wasn't scared of nothing
And there's no chance that
you had this experience because some part of you needed to have it?
I'm a reasonably intelligent guy, but this
My intellect couldn't even touch this.
I've been to Sunday school a few times.
I kept asking all these really annoying questions like
我 我总是问那些讨厌的问题 比如
"Where did Mrs. Cain come from?"
And pretty soon they asked my dad
if he wouldn't mind keeping me home from now on.
You're close to him, aren't you?
I was. He died when I was nine years old.
I never got to know my mother.
That's got to be tough.
- 不容易吧 - 是
we pack a picnic tomorrow and hike up to Mount Arecibo?
I don't think I can. I've got to work.
How about dinner tomorrow night? I know a great dive.
No, I don't think so.
Ellie, did I miss something?
I told Kent that I'd be there at 10:30.
I'm not trying to push you.
I've wanted to look at this sector for weeks.
不 不是那样的 只是我等这个区域好几周了
and sleep in. There's food in the fridge.
How can I reach you?
Just leave your number. I'll call you.
It's starting, you're going to miss it!
Dad, there's another one! Hurry up!
In a minute, Sparks! I'm almost done.
There's another one. Come on, hurry up, Dad!
又有一颗 快点 爸爸！
I'll get the medicine.
I know it's hard to understand this now
but we aren't always meant to know why things happen the way they do.
Sometimes, we just have to accept it
I should have kept medicine in the downstairs bathroom.
Then I could've gotten to it sooner.
this is W-9 GFO. Do you copy?
Dad, this is Ellie. Come back.
爸爸 这是爱莉 回话
This is Eleanor Arroway
transmitting on 14.2 megahertz
Dad, this is Ellie.
- Hi, Kent. - What are you doing up so early?
- 爱莉 - 嗨 肯特 一大早干什么来了？
we'd make a pretty good team.
We could put together an ad hoc SETI program.
You know the Very Large Array in New Mexico?
It's a dynamite place to do SETI work
What are you talking about?
Drumlin pulled the plug.
It's true, you pulled the plug?
You can't see it now, but I'm doing you a favor.
You're too promising a scientist to waste your gifts on this nonsense.
I don't consider what could be
the most important human discovery nonsense!
400 billion stars
And two probabilities. One, there's intelligent life
却只有两种可能 第一 存在智慧生命
but too far away to contact in your lifetime.
- And two! - You're making a decision
- 第二！ - 你所作的决定
There's nothing but gases and carbon compounds and you're wasting your time!
In the meantime, you won't be taken seriously.
同时 你没有文章发表 大家不会看重你
Your career will be over!
Hey, Kent. You were right.
哎 肯特 你说得对
Screw Drumlin. We'll raise the money ourselves. We'll go to New Mexico.
去他的德鲁姆林 我们自己找钱 我们去新墨西哥
