پاسخ نمونه بخش ۲

For most of my childhood I lived in an urban area that had a significant level of light pollution. It was definitely possible to see stars at night, but only the brightest and most prominent were visible.
In school, I’d seen pictures in textbooks of the night sky that I’d never seen in real life. I wasn’t entirely sure whether to believe what I was seeing because I’d never witnessed it firsthand. I wondered, if it was real, what it would actually look like.
I had the opportunity to find out for myself when my family and I went to Ohio for a summer when I was 10 years old.
We were staying in a very rural part of Ohio, far away from big cities and major sources of light. I’d long forgotten about that textbook with the picture of the night sky, but I was quickly reminded that first night.
In the grounds of the apartment complex where we were staying was a campfire pit. I’d never roasted marshmallows do something we hadn’t done for years and years: a campfire. We were going to roast marshmallows and make s’mores.
We built the fire and set up everything well before dusk. As the sun set and the sky went dark, we were treated to the most brilliant night sky I’d ever seen. It was a cloudless night and our view of the stars was completely unobstructed.
I couldn’t believe my eyes. The array of stars was unbelievable and for the first time in my life I was seeing a night sky that I’d only seen in pictures. That night I laid on my back and just stared, trying to count the number of stars I was seeing, which proved to be an impossible task.
Every night I spent there I was in awe of the sky. It was such a shame to have to leave and go back to a light polluted city because I was being deprived of such a beautiful sky.

پاسخ نمونه بخش ۳

Should kids know more about the stars and planets?

آیا کودکان باید درمورد ستاره ها و سیاره ها بیشتر بدانند؟

Of course! I think children should be taught about a wide variety of topics. It’s not necessary to go into excruciating detail but just having at least a superficial understanding of our universe could spark wonder and inspire a student to pursue a degree in a related field.
There’s a lot to learn about and I do believe the topic should be boiled down to the essentials as there’s rarely enough time to cover everything.
I remember when I was a young child, I had a number of books about the stars and planets. I’d read them with my parents and ask them questions about the origins of the universe.
As I grew up I had quite a fascination with the Apollo missions and watched every documentary I could get my hands on. In one of those documentaries I learned that astronauts, before they are launched into space, autograph thousands of photos of the crew, which are sent out to enthusiasts that write in. I was one of those enthusiasts, and several months after sending my letter, I received one of those autographed photos in the mail.

Is technology useful for looking at the night sky?

آیا تکنولوژی برای دیدن آسمان شب مفید است؟

Definitely. While much is visible with the naked eye, there’s a lot that is invisible without a good telescope.
We have a lot of telescopes here on earth, but because of atmosphericdistortion, we’ve launched a number of telescopes into space. The kind of sophisticated technology was likely unimaginable back in the days of early astronomers, and I wonder what they would have thought of the images we’ve managed to capture.
Of course technology is often used to enhance the images these telescopes take. Perhaps there needs to be some corrections that need to be made, but technology is involved every step of the way.

لغات و اصطلاحات پاسخ نمونه

Naked eye (idiom – چشم غیر مصلح)If you can see something with the naked eye, it can be seen without something like a telescope or microscope, or some other instrument.

Example: Bacteria are too small to be seen with the naked eye.

What kinds of people are interested in the stars?

چه نوع افرادی به ستاره ها علاقه مندند؟

Obviously those that are astronomers, both professional and amateur. There are plenty of people that casually look up at the night sky and wonder about its origins too.
I think that humans are very curious creatures and have always been inquisitive about our universe. Trying to make sense of it has always been a struggle, but as time marches on, we’re able to build on the knowledge we’ve already acquired.
One of the really cool things is astrophysics has worked its way into pop science culture and many documentaries and YouTube videos have been made to explain really difficult concepts in a simple fashion. I think this is really important to advance the scientific literacy of the general public, who’d otherwise be in the dark about our universe.

لغات و اصطلاحات پاسخ نمونه

Inquisitive (adjective – کنجکاو)If you’re inquisitive you want to discover as much as you can about things.

Example: She’s such an inquisitive child.

Why do some people like to watch movies about stars and planets?

چرا بعضی افراد دوست دارند راجع به ستاره ها و سیاره ها فیلم تماشا کنند؟

I think it’s a genre that has grown to be quite popular over the years.
Science fiction in particular builds on our fascination with what’s above us, and imagining fictional realities about exploring space and discovering aliens on far away planets. Personally it’s not a genre I’m really interested in, and have only watched a handful of movies and TV shows about such a topic.
There have been a few movies about historical events relating to space. I think the most notable was Apollo 13 that chronicled the ill-fated mission to the moon. It was both educational and a captivating drama, and it was coincidentally one of my favorite movies.
I think there are also a lot of people who watch movies about the stars and planets because they want to learn something new. Perhaps they have a general interest in science and this is one particular topic they want to dive into further to broaden their knowledge.
