Goodbye Cookie: pink cockatoo dies at 83 再见“曲奇”:83岁风头鹦鹉逝世

文字稿

Some exciting news now, because scientists say they’ve found a planet orbiting the closest star outside our solar system. And they say Proxima b, which is about four light years away, is a rocky globe that could have enough surface water to support life.

这条消息很让人振奋,因为科学家说他们发现了一颗正绕着离太阳系最近的恒星,比邻星轨道运行的行星。这颗被命名为“比邻星b”的行星离地球的距离约为四光年,它的表面多岩石,而且可能产生足够液态水来支持生命存活。

And finally, let's take you to a zoo in the American city of Chicago. Celebrations, but also a bit of mourning for a special cockatoo, who has died at the age of 83. Here's Cookie, a pink cockatoo, celebrating, in these pictures, his birthday back in June. He's believed to have been the oldest known bird of his kind. He arrived in the zoo in the 1930s. He retired a few years ago.

最后,我们带你到美国芝加哥的动物园里去看看。这是对一只特殊的风头鹦鹉一生的庆祝,同时也是悼念。这只风头鹦鹉去世时83岁。它就是“曲奇”(Cookie),一只粉红色的风头鹦鹉,画面中看到的是它在六月份庆祝自己生日时的景象。人们认为它是到目前为止存活最久的风头鹦鹉。曲奇于三十年代来到芝加哥动物园,直到几年前才“退休”。
