纽约发现用炸弹外壳制作的时间胶囊

来源:英语阅读 编辑:英语学习 时间:2017-07-13

Construction crews in New York shut down a street in the Flatiron district on July 5th after accidentally digging up a bomb. But they soon discovered that this bomb wasn’t filled with explosives. Surprisingly, the strange, metal artifact was filled with paper letters and photos. Yes, this bomb was actually a time capsule, originally buried in the 1980s.

纽约发现用炸弹外壳制作的时间胶囊

纽约熨斗区的一家建筑工地,7月5号因为意外挖出一个炸弹而紧急停工。不过工人们很快发现炸弹里面并不是爆炸性物质。令人惊讶的是,这个奇怪的金属物体里面全是纸信和照片。是的,这个炸弹其实是一个时间胶囊,还是1980年代埋起来的。

NYPD discovered that the inactive bomb was buried by the owners of the legendary (and now closed) Danceteria nightclub. The NYPD called John Argento, the old owner of the club. He explained that they had purchased the bomb from an Army Surplus store and hung it inside the club for years before deciding to turn it into a time capsule.

纽约市警察局调查后得知,这个假炸弹是由那家传奇的Danceteria夜总会(现已关闭)主人埋下的,他们联系了约翰·阿尔真托——夜总会的前主人。他解释,当年他们一群人从陆军剩余物资商店买来了这个炸弹,并挂在俱乐部的天花板上,过了好几年才决定将它制成一个时间胶囊。

Everything inside the time capsule, which was buried underneath a parking lot, has reportedly been destroyed by water damage, though Argento won’t know for certain that all is lost until the city gives him possession of the capsule. The NYPD is holding on to it for a few more days so that a proper search can be conducted of the item.

据报道,这个埋在停车场底下的时间胶囊,里面所有的东西都被水腐蚀了。不过在等到政府允许他拥有这个胶囊之前,阿尔真托无法完全确认是否所有的东西都已毁于一旦。纽约市警察局将继续扣留炸弹,留出几天时间对这个物体进行一个正式的调查。
