科學家 Kailasavadivoo Sivan 在新聞發布會上公布了該國登月計劃的一些細節

India on Wednesday unveiled a spacecraft which is expected to take off for the moon next month, making the country only the fourth to achieve the feat. The mission is India's second to the moon, and if successful it will put the nation in the league of the US, the former Soviet Union and China.

周三,印度公布了“月球飛船2號”的照片,該飛船預計在7月發射升空。這次任務是印度登月計劃的第二步(2008年,印度曾發射“月球飛船1號”,不過只是一個衛星,沒有在月球表面降落),如果一切順利,印度將成為繼美國、前蘇聯、中國后,全球第四個達成登月壯舉的國家。



Named Chandrayaan-2, the craft is made up of an orbiter, a lander and a rover developed by the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO).

印度空間研究組織(ISRO)研發的“月球飛船2號”由軌道飛行器、登陸器和探測器組成。

It will be launched from Sriharikota space centre on July 15 and is expected to land near the lunar South Pole on September 6.

它預計將于7月15日從 Sriharikota 航天中心發射, 9月6日前后在月球南極附近著陸。



In March, the country said it had destroyed a low-orbiting satellite in a missile test to prove the nation was among the world's most advanced space powers.

今年3月,印度表示,他們在一次導彈試驗中摧毀了一顆低軌道衛星,以證明印度是世界上最先進的太空大國之一。
