Israel fails attempted Moon landing as comm with spacecraft lost

以色列嘗試登月失敗,因為他們失去了與宇宙飛船的通信。



Israel’s private spacecraft Beresheet crashed into the Moon on Thursday after being hit with problems during descent, denying the Jewish state a place in the elite club of nations that mastered a lunar landing.

以色列的私人宇宙飛船“Beresheet”星期四在降落過程中遇到問題后墜入月球,這使得這個猶太國家無法在掌握登月技術的國家精英俱樂部中占有一席之地。

“Small country, big dreams,” the engraving on the spacecraft’s body read, but those dreams weren’t destined to come true.

“小國家,大夢想,”這是刻在飛船身體上的文字,但這些夢想并不是注定能實現。



Beresheet, which is Hebrew for the biblical phrase “in the beginning,” could have also become the first private spacecraft to land on the Moon. It was constructed by Israeli nonprofit space venture SpaceIL and state-owned defense contractor Israel Aerospace Industries. The $100 million needed for the ambitious project came from private investors.

Beresheet是希伯來語,圣經中的“開始”一詞,也可能成為第一個登上月球的私人宇宙飛船。它是由以色列非盈利的航天企業Spaceil和國有國防承包商以色列航空工業公司建造的。這個雄心勃勃的項目所需的1億美元來自私人投資者。
