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“月球飞船2号”的照片,该飞船预计在7月发射升空。这次任务是印度登月计划的第二步(2008年,印度曾发射“月球飞船1号”,不过只是一个卫星,没有在月球表面降落),如果一切顺利,印度将成为继美国、前苏联、中国后,全球第四个达成登月壮举的国家。



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

印度空间研究组织(ISRO)研发的“月球飞船2号”由轨道飞行器、登陆器和探测器组成。

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

它预计将于7月15日从 Sriharikota 航天中心发射, 9月6日前后在月球南极附近着陆。



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,他们在一次导弹试验中摧毁了一颗低轨道卫星,以证明印度是世界上最先进的太空大国之一。
