Israel fails attempted Moon landing as comm with spacecraft lost

以色列尝试登月失败,因为他们失去了与宇宙飞船的通信。



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.

以色列的私人宇宙飞船“Beresheet”星期四在降落过程中遇到问题后坠入月球,这使得这个犹太国家无法在掌握登月技术的国家精英俱乐部中占有一席之地。

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

“小国家,大梦想,”这是刻在飞船身体上的文字,但这些梦想并不是注定能实现。



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是希伯来语,圣经中的“开始”一词,也可能成为第一个登上月球的私人宇宙飞船。它是由以色列非盈利的航天企业Spaceil和国有国防承包商以色列航空工业公司建造的。这个雄心勃勃的项目所需的1亿美元来自私人投资者。
