, The fastest update to the latest chapters of the creator of the second dimension!
Beishan Observatory has been very busy recently.
Since the release of “Country Teacher”, the number of visitors to the observatory has obviously increased.
Beishan is the highest peak in the urban area of Ningjiang.
Ningjiang itself is the ancient capital of the Six Dynasties and a modern metropolis.
Therefore, there are many scenic spots near Beishan. There is a mausoleum of an ancient emperor halfway up the mountain, and another mausoleum of a modern great man on one side of the mountain. There are countless large and small sightseeing spots in the middle, and there are many tourists every day.
But most people don’t know that Beishan also has the first observatory in the country.
For the people of Ningjiang, Beishan Observatory is also like a child next door who has no sense of existence. Unless the school organizes an autumn tour, it is rare to see it once.
Not to mention that if you go to the observatory in the autumn, many children will cry on the spot.
But in the past few days, the number of people coming to the Beishan Observatory has increased several times.
The road to the observatory is not easy to find, but there are still tourists who come together.
And many of them are young people.
This made Dr. Chen, the director of the observatory, very pleased.
Here, these young people who may have only known the Big Dipper in the past, but may not have been able to find it, learned for the first time the magnificence of the distant starry sky, and witnessed the destruction of the sun that may occur hundreds of millions of years later in the simulation.
Among them, the most popular project is a popular science project that uses a planetarium to project the sky screen.
This project is not new, but it has always been a simple introduction to popular science, which is a bit boring, and there have been cases where tourists fell asleep during the viewing process.
Later, Xu Rui helped design an astrological project after cooperating with Beishan Observatory.
Different from the traditional introduction to the starry sky, this project introduces the history of mankind since ancient times, in mythology, yearning for the sky, and striving to fly into the universe.
From the primitive man looking up at the starry sky from the cave to Icarus flying to the sun.
From the **** who tried to fly into the sky with a firecracker, to the little dog Lycra who has not returned.
From the first human flight witnessed by a few people on the hill to the establishment of the International Space Station.
The name of the revised project is “Flapping Wings Universe, Human Dream”.
Combining the starry sky with history, this project has won unanimous praise from the audience, and some even shed tears after watching it, crying with emotion for this courageous pioneering history.
This project has been in business during the summer vacation. After the first two weeks of silence, it gradually spread. Many people came here just to watch this.
On September 10th, after the broadcast of “Country Teacher”, more tourists came to the observatory, and even had to line up for admission.
From the first Friday, major schools also began to organize movie viewings, followed by autumn outings.
This time, few children cried after hearing that they were going to the Observatory for Autumn Outing.
After all, in the movie, the various warships and planets explode, no matter how cool they look, children like this.
The answer to the question was also made by Dr. Chen. After seeing Xu Rui’s help, making everyone willing to visit the observatory, he felt that he should also keep pace with the times and make full use of various social media to expand the influence of the observatory.
So, he found a few people who knew how to make videos, and made a series of popular science videos about astronomy, from science popularization of the eight planets to explanations of some cosmic wonders, combined with easy topics suitable for young people, and got a lot of views.
On weekends, a group of students organized to visit, and the area where the observatory receives outsiders was lively.
Xu Rui looked at these students, smiled, and led by Dr. Tan to the phantom telescope research room.
Today, this is China’s most cutting-edge research center for large-mass celestial bodies, focusing on the birth and death of various large-mass celestial bodies in the universe. Of course, it is rare to capture the birth and destruction of stars. Under normal circumstances, it is still for some celestial bodies. Make routine observations.
Astronomy seems to be very powerful. Supernova explosions and cosmic black holes are actually really boring.
The time scale of the universe is too large for humans.
Take Halley’s comet, for example, only once in 76 years.
Astronomers often need to make observations for years, or even decades, to get a glimpse of the short-lived changes in stars.
The subsequent analysis and research may take longer.
As for those astronomical wonders, they are hard to come by.
In ordinary days, in addition to routine observation, it is to analyze and calculate data.
The researcher’s daily life, in the eyes of outsiders, is so boring and boring.
But for the researcher himself, there is nothing more exciting than calculating the orbit of a star by hand and witnessing the life and death of that great existence.
Of course, young people do not have so much concentration, and it is normal for them to be attracted by other things.
Xu Rui’s arrival undoubtedly brought some vitality to the young people in the research room.
“How’s the recent research?”
Xu Rui asked, he didn’t expect any reply, just as a greeting.
“Thanks to the movie, there are quite a few big companies that want to sponsor us. Maybe you think everyone will pay attention to this one recently.”
Dr. Tan smiled, but didn’t mention this.
The observatory is funded by the state and its daily operation is not a problem. As for other sponsorships, it is the observatory’s own business. To be honest, if it weren’t for the release of “Country Teacher”, many companies might not have thought of sponsoring the observatory at all.
Rather than looking up at the starry sky, they prefer the kind of visible research projects, such as materials and electronic engineering.
“I have always felt that all kinds of energy crises, population problems, and war problems in the world are actually solved in the universe.”
Xu Rui looked at those computer screens and said.
“The universe is much broader than we thought. When the earth can no longer support human beings, the right path is to develop outward…Ah, I’m sorry, maybe I’m too idealistic.”
He noticed that Dr. Tan’s eyes interrupted him.
“No, I actually have such a feeling, the future should belong to the starry sky.”
Dr. Tan smiled. He also thinks that the way out for mankind may be in the starry sky, but reality does not allow most countries to conduct such exploration.
Even the food problem of billions of people has not been solved. Why spend money to explore the useless universe?
This is the idea of many people.
“Stop talking about it, Mr. Xu, what’s the matter with you this time?”
Dr. Tan looked at Xu Rui. He obviously didn’t come to say these ideals of looking up at the stars.
“Well, that’s the case. I have another work here, which is based on science fiction. I want to seek technical support from the observatory.”
Xu Rui said, taking out his own information.
“Dr. Tan, you should be familiar with the three-body problem.”
