# 這段英文裡提到的數字是多少? 英譯中

"Stephen Hawking has estimated that if the rate of the universe's

expansion one second after the Big Bang had been smaller by

even one part in a hundred thousand million million, the universe

would have re-collapsed into a hot fireball."

雖然意見欄正確算出 a hundred thousand million million = 10 ^ 17 (10 的 17次方)，但是 one part in a hundred thousand million million

應該是 1 / 10 ^ 17

事關宇宙生成的大爆炸(Big Bang)理論： 話說當初發生一秒中之後，如果那時的擴張/膨脹率小一點點 （1 / 10 ^ 17 那麼小）-- 則整個宇宙就會再次回縮，變成炙熱的火球。 -- 那就沒有宇宙，沒有太陽系，也沒有爹娘和你了。

更正一下：大爆炸後的宇宙擴張圖

(大爆炸之前沒有宇宙)

假設這是 在美國 1 mill = 1,000,000

a hundred = 100 x

thousand = 1,000 x

million = 1,000,000 x

million = 1,000,000 x

==>100,000,000,000,000,000
