NASA成功从本努小行星上采集样本,但部分样本被泄漏到太空

NASA successfully collected a sample from asteroid Bennu, but some of it is leaking into space

本周二,美国宇航局的“奥西里斯 – 雷克斯”号宇宙飞船从近地小行星“本努”上历史性地采集了一个样本,采集过程相当成功。

The historic collection of a sample from the near-Earth asteroid Bennu by NASA’s OSIRIS-REx spacecraft on Tuesday was almost too successful.

但据图森亚利桑那大学OSIRIS REx首席研究员Dante Lauretta周五在美国宇航局的新闻发布会上说,一些样本正在泄漏到太空中。

Some of the sample is leaking into space, according to Dante Lauretta, OSIRIS-REx principal investigator at the University of Arizona in Tucson during a NASA press conference Friday.

他说:“现在最大的担忧是,这些粒子正在逃逸,我们几乎成了这次成功的牺牲品。”。“大的离子打开了襟翼。粒子正在向太空扩散。它们的移动速度并不快,但尽管如此,它还是有价值的科学资料。”

“The big concern now is that particles are escaping because we’re almost a victim of our own success,” he said. “Large particles left the flap open. Particles are diffusing out into space. They aren’t moving fast, but nonetheless, it’s valuable scientific material.”
