Babel Fish fun

Translating an recent IceCube abstract to Chinese using Babel Fish:

IceCube is a 1 km$^3$ neutrino observatory being built to study neutrino production in active galactic nuclei, gamma-ray bursts, supernova remnants, and a host of other astrophysical sources. High-energy neutrinos may signal the sources of ultra-high energy cosmic rays. IceCube will also study many particle-physics topics: searches for WIMP annihilation in the Earth or the Sun, and for signatures of supersymmetry in neutrino interactions, studies of neutrino properties, including searches for extra dimensions, and searches for exotica such as magnetic monopoles or Q-balls. IceCube will also study the cosmic-ray composition.
In January, 2005, 60 digital optical modules (DOMs) were deployed in the South Polar ice at depths ranging from 1450 to 2450 meters, and 8 ice-tanks, each containing 2 DOMs were deployed as part of a surface air-shower array. All 76 DOMs are collecting high-quality data. After discussing the IceCube physics program and hardware, I will present some initial results with the first DOMs.

and then translating the Chinese back into English yields some amusing results:

IceCube is in 1 km$^3$ the corpuscle observatory is built in the study the corpuscle production in the active outer space star cluster nucleus, the Gamma ray explodes, the supernova is remaining, with many other astrophysics origin. In perhaps the high energy the corpuscle sends the signal ultra to leave the frequency the energy cosmic rays origin. IceCube and will study many particles physics topic: The search for soft and weak annihilates in the Earth or the sun, with is the supersymmetry signature in the center corpuscle interaction, center the corpuscle product research, including the search extra dimension, with searches exotica for example magnetic monopoles or the Q ball. IceCube and will study the cosmic-ray constitution. In January, 2005, 60 integers character styles optics module (DOMs) had deployed in the south pole ice in the depth scope from 1450 to 2,450 meters, with 8 ices tanks, 2 DOMs deployment which respectively contained showers the array as superficial part of air. All 76 DOMs collects the high quality material. In discusses after the IceCube physics program and the hardware, I will propose some primitive results and first DOMs.

Somehow "neutrino" became "corpuscle".
