轻松阅读、玩单词:Cosmos and universe are both translated as 宇宙

File:Hubble ultra deep field high rez edit1.jpg

In the general sense, a cosmos is an orderly or harmonious system.

The word derives from the Greek term κόσμος (kosmos), literally meaning "order" or "ornament" and metaphorically "world",[1] and is antithetical to the concept of chaos.

 

Today, the word is generally used as a synonym of the Latin loanword "Universe" (considered in its orderly aspect).

The word cosmetics originates from the same root.

In many Slavic languages such as Russian, Bulgarian, and Serbian, the word Космос cosmos means also the "outer space".

In Mandarin Chinese, cosmos and universe are both translated as 宇宙 yǔzhòu, which literally translated means space-time ( = space + zhòu = time).
