NASA“毅力”号成功登陆火星

NASA Perseverance Successfully Lands on Mars

NASA周四在火星上着陆了一辆新的火星探测器,这是它几十年来最大的努力,目的是直接研究这颗红色星球上是否曾经存在生命。

NASA landed a new robotic rover on Mars on Thursday, its most ambitious effort in decades to directly study whether there was ever life on the red planet.

虽然NASA已经在火星上执行过其他任务,但这个耗资27亿美元、名为“毅力”(Perseverance)的火星探测器携带了一套复杂的科学工具,将为寻找地球以外的生命带来更加先进的方法。

While the agency has landed other missions on Mars, the $2.7 billion robotic explorer named Perseverance carries a sophisticated set of scientific tools that will bring advanced capabilities to the search for life beyond our planet.

“毅力”号是本月第三个抵达火星的地球机器人。上周,另外两艘航天器,阿联酋的“希望”号和中国的“天问1号”也已经进入了火星轨道。

Perseverance was the third robotic visitor from Earth to arrive at the red planet this month. Last week, two other spacecraft, Hope from the United Arab Emirates and Tianwen-1 from China, entered orbit around Mars.
