托福阅读背景之“外星人解密文件”

发表日期:2016-10-28 | 来源 :国际护士网 | 作者 :www.the-nurses.com |点击数: 次 收听:
 

       The CIA has released thousands of declassified documents on flying saucers, aliens and other unexplained phenomena.

  美国中央情报局(CIA)日前公布了数千份有关飞碟、外星人及其他未解之谜的解密文件。

  'We've decided to highlight a few documents both skeptics and believers will find interesting,' the agency said on its website.

  中央情报局在官网上发表声明说:‘我们决定公开几份文件,它们将会引起怀疑者和信奉者的兴趣。’

  The post continued: 'Below you will find five documents we think X-Files character Agent Fox Mulder would love to use to try and persuade others of the existence of extraterrestrial activity.'

  声明称:“我们相信,接下来的五份文件会连《X档案》中的特别探员穆德也想要加以利用,试图说服他人外星活动真实存在。”

  All of the documents are dated from the late 1940s to the 1960s, but were top-secret until now.

  这些文件可追溯到20世纪40年代末到60年代,在此之前它们一直都是绝密文件。

  One of the files attached to the post is a document from East Germany in 1952, where agents were called to investigate what witnesses described as a 'huge flying pan'.

  在公布的文件中,有一份来自1952年的东德,文件记录了特工人员对目击者描述的“巨型飞盘”的调查。

  The object was said to have a diameter of about 15 meters, according to the document.

  据这份文件记载,该物体直径约为15米。

  Similar flying saucers were also spotted in North Africa and Spain, the report said.

  报告称,在北非和西班牙也发现了类似的飞碟。

  'The picture [of the object] shows a diagonal stripe of diminishing width and lighter in shade than the sky over the dark bulk of a building cornice,' it was noted.

  文件还记载道:“从照片来看,该物体表面呈宽度递减的斜条纹,它比飞檐上方的天空颜色更浅。”

  Included with some of the documents were three pictures of the alleged extraterrestrials.

  在部分文件中还附有所谓的外星生物的三张照片。

  One of the photos - taken by British student Alex Birch in 1962 - claimed to show a group of flying saucers flying over the city of Sheffield in the UK.

  其中一张照片是由英国学生亚历克斯·伯奇于1962年拍摄。这张照片展示了一群飞碟飞过英国谢菲尔德市的上空。

  However the photo was proven to be a hoax.

  然而,这张照片后来被证实是一场骗局。

  The files also detail a case of flying saucers that were spotted over what was formerly Belgian Congo.

  这些档案还对在比属刚果(刚果旧称)发现的飞碟事件进行了详细的记载。

  The document reveals that two 'fiery discs' were seen over a uranium mine, and that the discs had 'glided curves and changed position many times'.

  据文件披露,在铀矿上空发现了两个“火盘”,它们沿曲线轨迹滑翔,并多次变换位置。

  It then adds: 'Suddenly, both discs hovered in one spot and then took off in a unique zigzag flight to the north east.

  文件中写道:“突然,两个飞碟在一个地方盘旋,随即又沿独特的之字形轨迹向东北方飞去。

  'A penetrating hissing and buzzing sound was audible to onlooker below. The whole performance lasted 10 to 12 minutes.'

  “目击者听到一阵尖利的嘶嘶声和嗡嗡声。飞碟从出现到消失持续了10到12分钟。”

  An aircraft was then set to investigate the object, and got with meters of the saucer and according to the pilot, the inner core of it remained totally still while the a knob opening could be seen from the outside.

  一架飞机随后被派来侦查该物体,并飞到距飞碟几米远处。据飞行员说,飞碟内核区完全静止不动,从外部可以看到一个球形突出物。

  The pilot then gave up his pursuit when the 'disc' appeared to disappear.

  当“飞碟”消失后,飞行员也停止了他的追踪。

  Also contained in the files is the case in Socorro, New Mexico in 1964, when police officer Lonnie Zamoraspotted a large flame rise from the ground and pierce the sky above a remote patch of desert.

  这些档案中也包含了1964年发生在新墨西哥州索科罗的案例。当时警察朗尼·萨莫拉发现沙漠远处一团巨大火焰腾空而起,划破天空。

  He went to investigate and found a shiny object the size of a sedan perched on the hilltop, which was oval in shape and aluminium in color.

  他走过去想一探究竟,发现在山顶处有一个轿车大小的发光物体,椭圆状,呈金属铝的颜色。

  The object then began to rise into the air and then sped away from him over the mountains and disappeared.

  随即,该物体开始升上天,快速越过山头,然后从他眼前消失了。

  The release of the documents coincide with the long-awaited return of The X-Files on Sunday.

  这些文件的公开恰逢影迷期待已久的《X档案》在周日回归。

  The beloved show was rebooted by the Fox Network after 10 years, with its two original stars reprising their roles.

  这场深得观众喜爱的科幻剧时隔十年之后,由福克斯电视网续拍。原来的两大主演也将回归。
