            Naked Science 6 科學新發現

            It is said that diamonds are a girl's best friend, but there are more to these precious gems than their bling quality. Diamonds are four times harder than any other mineral found on Earth. Therefore, they are the hardest material on the planet. They conduct heat and even electricity. They are able to cut through metal and are nearly impossible to destroy. However, diamonds are not as everlasting as most people believe, but what if they could be?

            In National Geographic Channel's "Naked Science 6: Super Diamonds," scientists from around the world reveal the secrets of diamonds. They also explain how they are working on creating a super diamond. The super diamond would be stronger than any natural diamond and could be produced in any shape or size. Better yet, a super diamond could even be made to top the Hope Diamond. Valued at 250 million dollars, the Hope Diamond is the world's largest and most perfect natural diamond. In NGC's "Super Diamonds", you will get to see if scientists can really outdo Mother Nature and create a super hard, super valuable, and super sparkling super diamond.

            據說鉆石是女孩最好的朋友,但這種珍貴寶石所蘊含的不光是只有其閃耀的特質。鉆石的硬度是地球上任何其它礦物的四倍。也因此它們是這個星球上最堅硬的物體。鉆石可以導熱,甚至能導電。它們可以切割金屬,也幾乎無法摧毀。然而鉆石并不像大家所認為的這般恒久遠,但如果它們真能這樣又如何呢?

            本月份在國家地理頻道的《科學新發現6:超級鉆石》當中,來自全球各地的科學家將揭露鉆石的秘密。他們還會解釋他們如何致力于制造一種超級鉆石。這種超級鉆石將會比任何天然鉆石都還要堅硬,并可塑造成各種形狀及尺寸。更棒的是,科學家甚至可以制作出一顆比希望之鉆還要完美的超級鉆石。希望之鉆價值兩億五千萬美元,是世界上最大也最完美的天然鉆石。在本月國家地理頻道的《科學新發現6:超級鉆石》中,您將得以發現科學家們是否真能超越大自然,創造出一顆超級堅硬、超級貴重、超級耀眼奪目的超級鉆石。
