All right. Next story, at an amber market in the Asia country of Myanmar, which is also known as Burma, a Chinese paleontologist recently found something amazing, the tail of what scientists say is a 99-million-year-old dinosaur. It was frozen in amber, yes, like Jurassic Park. The paleontologist said the seller might not have realized the importance of the find, but he didn`t raise the price.

下一条新闻,缅甸是一个亚洲国家,最近一位中国古生物学家在琥珀缅甸市场发现了令人惊奇的事物,科学及爱表示,那是约9900万年前的恐龙化石。它被冻结在琥珀中,对的,就像电影《侏罗纪公园》。该古生物学家表示,卖方可能还没意识到这一发现的重要性,所以没有提高价格。

Researchers believe it was the tail of a sparrow-sized dinosaur from a group called coelurosaurs. And close ups of the tail indicate the animal had feathers instead of scales. One expert says these aren`t quite the Godzilla-style scaly monsters we once thought they were.

研究人员认为这是虚骨龙中一种麻雀大小恐龙的尾巴。但是尾巴的闭合状态表示,这种动物有的是羽毛,而不是鳞屑。一位专家表示,他们并不是我们之前认为的那种有鳞的恐龙。

Another paleontologist co-published the findings on the specimen in a scientific journal named Current Biology. He says it`s the first time that part of a mummified dinosaur skeleton has been found. He calls it a once in a lifetime discovery with the finest details visible and in three dimensions.

另外一个古生物学家在科学杂志《当代生物学》联合发表了该研究结果。他表示,这是首次在琥珀发现恐龙化石骨骼的尾巴部分。该生物学家将此发现描述为一生中、在立体空间发现的最好的明显的细节。

What you`re about to see now is kind of the opposite of the mannequin challenge. It has to do with kinematics, the study of motion. A technologically advanced way to document the movements of people, animals or objects is to use motion captured cameras. They`re specialized, higher end, mot-cap systems can cause tens of thousands of dollars.

你将看到的是与人体模型挑战的另外一面。该挑战与运动学有关。用一种先进的技术手段——动作捕捉相机来记录人体、动物和物体的运动。这种具有专业、高端、动作捕捉系统的相机需要耗资上万美元。

And you might have seen them used for movies, sports, computer programs or especially video games, this technology is also moving forward in the fields of engineering and medicine.

你可能见过它们应用于电影、体育、计算机程序或特别是视频游戏,这种技术将应用于移动工程领域和医学。
