  A scientist has created a formula to calculate the worth of planet Earth and has valued it at three thousand trillion pounds.

  一位美国的科学家自创了一套演算公式,并计算出了地球的价值――约合3000万英镑。

  Astrophysicist Greg Laughlin came up with the figure by calculating the sum of the planet’s age, size, temperature, mass and other vital statistics – and Earth came out as the most expensive.

  天体物理学家格瑞格·劳宁教授更具星球的年代、体积、温度、质量以及其他因素来计算其价值,而地球则是其中最“昂贵”的。

  Mars was only valued at ?10,000, while Venus is said to be worth less than a penny.

  火星的价值仅为1万英镑,而金星更是一文不值。

  There are about 1,235 other planets in the universe, most of which weren’t given a high price tag because of their inhospitable climates.

  宇宙中大约还有1235颗已知已知的行星因不适宜居住而价值不高。

  Professor Laughlin from the University of California-Santa Cruz invented the equation, which he used to evaluate the discoveries made by Nasa’s ?600 million Kepler spacecraft .

  劳宁发明的这个方程式,常常被美国宇航局用于评估开普勒飞船发现的行星。

  The planet-hunting spacecraft went into orbit two years ago and a year later Laughlin decided to create price tags for the terrestrial planets that Keplar was set to discover.

  来自加州大学圣克鲁兹分校的劳宁教授称大约是从一年前开始给行星标价的。

  At the time, the exoplanet Gilese 581 c was considered the most Earth-like world known to scientists,but the equation only valued it at ?100, while KOI 326.01 is said to be worth ?150,000.

  当时,一颗名为Gilese 581c的行星被认为是与地球物理环境机器相似的行星,但通过教授的方程式,其估价只有100英镑,而另一颗名为KOI326.01行星的价值则高达15万英镑。

  The older the star, the more value it has because it has had the chance to mature, the mass is then taken into account and generally if it’s around the same size as Earth it is thought of as a good size for supporting life.

  据劳宁称,星球年龄越大,价值也就越好,因成熟的几率也更大,可计算的因素也更多,该类星球也有出现生命体的可能。
