 Another story we're covering, what's known as the Doomsday Vault has been breached.

下面来看本台播报的下则新闻,知名的“末日穹顶”(斯瓦尔巴全球种子库)出现缺口。

This is an emergency storage facility for seeds — more than 500 million of them from all around the world. It would allow people to recreate food supplies in case there's some sort of global catastrophe. The vault's carved into a side of a mountain Svalbard, a Norwegian archipelago about halfway between Norway and the North Pole.

这是一个种子应急储存设施,里面储存着来自全球的5亿多种子。如果发生全球性灾难,人类可以用这些种子重建粮食供应。这个种子库位于斯瓦尔巴群岛一侧的山洞中。斯瓦尔巴群岛是一座位于挪威和北极之间的挪威群岛。

The company that manages the vault says water has gotten in, that it breached the entrance to the vault and sit about 50 feet into part of an access tunnel. The seeds themselves were not harmed.

负责管理该种子库的公司表示,水渗入了种子库入口处的隧道,渗水深度约为50英尺。库内储存的种子并没有受到损失。

So, how did this happen?

那,水为何会渗进种子库?

Regardless of when you're watching this show on Tuesday, the temperature in Svalbard is below freezing. The vault's management company says the breach occurred during an unusually warm and rainy October. They just made it public. Officials are waterproofing the walls inside the tunnel entrance to better protect the vault.

无论您在周二何时收听到这则新闻,斯瓦尔巴群岛的温度都会在零度以下。管理种子库的公司表示,由于去年10月天气异常温暖且多雨,导致种子库出现缺口。他们刚刚公开了这一情况。官方正在对隧道入口内部的墙面进行防水处理,以更好地保护种子库。
