星期日很幸運地和很多人一起見證台灣2009年國際天文年開幕
那一天
孫維新老師帶來了這首天文年的主題曲"Shoulders of Giants"
配上老師簡單地翻譯
就夠讓人熱淚盈框
心裡面產生了很大的感動

在伽利略用望遠鏡望向深邃夜空後的400年
我們對宇宙的瞭解多了很多
但還有很多未知等待我們去探索

希望透過天文年的一系列活動
可以讓更多人愛上天文:喜歡抬頭看星星
或是發願也要變成天文學家...

It was a calm and cloudless night but it was all still a blur
A shaking of our Universe was just about to occur
It was Summertime...1609
when Galileo used his telescope for the very first time
and he saw mountains and craters on the moon
and a Milky Way with thousands of stars
and he saw Jupiter, with four tiny moons
he was the only man on Earth that night who knew

That Copernicus was right
come outside with me tonight
and I can show you wonders of the world
to surprise and delight
I've got my telescope with me
just wait until you see
that on the Shoulders of Giants....

             ... we'll see beyond!

The world turns round and round now around 400 years have flown
since Galileo's telescope first focused the unknown
Now we use bigger glass to peer into the past
And we're discovering the Universe's secrets at last
And there are geysers on Saturn's icy moon
and planets circling hundreds of stars
while all the Universe expands like a balloon
from Galileo's tiny scope we've come so far

Galileo was right
when he looked out in the night
and he discovered wonders of the world
to surprise and delightI've got my telescope with me
just wait until you see
we'll stand on the Shoulders of Giants...

And every step follows the one before
and opens up a new frontier to explore
our 'scopes are dancing in space to see the beauty and grace
Oh, Galileo would approve, that's for sure
And still for me and you we can join in on this too
Just climb up here with me where we'll see more

It's a calm and cloudless night come outside with me tonight
and I can show you wonders of the world to surprise and delight
I've got my telescope with me just wait until you see (oh, wait until you see)
we'll stand on the Shoulders of Giants (Galileo knew)

That Copernicus was right (Johannes)
Come outside with me tonight (Kepler found those)
and I can show you wonders of the world (planetary motions on the)
to surprise and delight (Shoulders of Giants)
I've got my telescope with me (And Isaac)
Just wait until you see (Newton found his)
we'll stand on the Shoulders of Giants (Universal Laws)
(He stood on the Shoulders of Giants...)

           ...to see beyond!
