我国民营商业航天企业完成首次卫星发射_双语新闻

The Beijing-based private company i-Space used its own carrier rocket to place three satellites into space on Wednesday, marking China’s first satellite launch by a privately built rocket.

总部位于北京的私人公司I-Space在周三使用自己的运载火箭将三颗卫星送入太空,这是中国首次用私营企业制造的火箭发射卫星。

The mission, termed by many industry observers as a landmark in the country’s space industry, was conducted at the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center in northwestern China, which marked the first time that a private rocket blasted off from a government-run space launch site.

这次任务被许多工业观察家称为中国航天工业的一个里程碑,在中国西北部的酒泉卫星发射中心进行,这标志着首次私人火箭从政府运营的太空发射场发射。

Developed and produced by i-Space, a Beijing space startup founded by a group of senior Chinese rocket scientists, the 9.5-meter SQX-1Z solid-propellant carrier rocket roared into the clear sky at 1 pm from a supporting pad from a large desert. With a diameter of 1.4 m and a maximum design speed of 1.5 kilometers per second, the craft soon touched the sky.

由一群中国资深火箭科学家创办的北京太空创业公司I-Space开发并生产了这枚9.5米的SQX-1Z固体推进剂运载火箭,于下午1点从一片大沙漠的支撑垫上轰鸣升空,直径为1.4米,最高设计速度为每秒1.5公里,很快就到达了天空。

According to i-Space, the rocket flew for more than 460 seconds and reached 108 kilometers above the ground before releasing three mini satellites. The satellites – one from ZeroG Lab, a privately owned satellite maker in Beijing and two from ADA-Space, a private firm in Chengdu specializing in satellite design and data services, would travel in the sub-orbit for an undisclosed period of time for technological demonstration and would then fall back to the land to be recovered, the company said in a statement.

根据I-Space的说法,火箭在发射三颗微型卫星之前,飞行了460秒,飞到了地面108公里处。该公司在一份声明中称,这些卫星(一颗来自北京私营卫星制造商zerog Lab,两颗来自成都专门从事卫星设计和数据服务的私人公司ADA-space)将在未披露的一段时间内在子轨道上运行,以便进行技术演示,然后返回到被收回的土地上。

Wednesday’s launch has been the third time for Chinese private enterprises to carry out space mission and also the second flight by the i-Space rocket family. The company performed its debut launch in April at a research rocket testing site in the island province of Hainan, verifying the design and equipment of the firm’s first product, the indigenously developed SQX-1S.

周三的发射是中国私营企业第三次执行太空任务,也是I-Space火箭家族的第二次飞行。4月份,该公司在海南省的一个研究火箭试验场进行了首次发射,验证了该公司第一批产品的设计和设备,即自主开发的SQX-1S。
