一个典型的蜂房大概有50万只蜜蜂,它们飞行超越两百五十万英里

蜂蜜和一分钟地球视频很像,制作过程需要很多的工作。
Both honey and MinuteEarth videos are dense, sweet, and the product of lots of work. To
制作一个一分钟地球的视频,我们团队收集了很多来自科学家的知识来写蜂蜜

然而,和真的蜜蜂不一样,我们制作分钟地球的团队,在冬天不能靠吃我们的产品存活。
However, unlike real bees, the team making MinuteEarth can’t eat our work to survive
然而我们想全心全意地制作视频给你们,
the winter. And while we want nothing more than to keep making videos for you, the advertisements
需要依赖的广告和赞助商,却不能满足我们所有理想的费用,
and sponsorships we rely on haven’t been able to cover all of our costs, and ideally, we’d

一个夏天每个工蜂还生产不到10一茶匙的蜂蜜

但是在一起50000只蜜蜂可以维持一个蜂巢。同样,积少成多。
a summer, but together 50,000 bees can sustain a hive. In the same way, small contributions
