Space Travel is Becoming a Reality

人類的太空飛行年

Space travel may soon become a reality! Virgin Galactic made history when they launched their SpaceShipTwo suborbital vehicle into space with two astronauts on board. This is the first vehicle to launch humans into space from U.S. soil since NASA’s Shuttle program ended in 2011.
太空旅行可能很快就要成真了!維珍銀河公司(Virgin Galactic)日前寫下歷史,發射太空船二號次軌道太空船,上頭搭載了兩位太空人。這是自美國NASA太空梭計劃在2011年停止後,首次有載人太空船從美國國土起飛至太空。

Virgin Galactic founder Richard Branson has a dream about space travel and has set the ticket price per person per trip at 250,000 USD. He plans to be the first passenger to board the space shuttle, with other space tourists to follow soon after. Virgin Galactic CEO George Whitesides also expects that next year will be “a huge year for human spaceflight.”

維珍銀河公司創辦人理查布朗森(Richard Branson)一直都想實踐太空旅行,他甚至把單程票價都定好了,每人單趟為25萬美元。他計畫要當太空梭的第一位乘客,其他旅客也能很快成行。維珍銀河公司的CEO喬治懷特塞茲(George Whitesides)也預期明年將會是「人類的太空飛行年」。

After a successful test flight, Branson plans to become SpaceShipTwo’s first passenger by the middle of next year with other tourists to follow soon after. “In the not too distant future, we’ll have three spaceships operating from New Mexico taking people up into outer space,” Branson said on CNBC’s “Power Lunch” TV program.

在成功的試飛後,布朗森計畫在明年中成為太空船二號的第一位乘客,之後其他旅客也可上太空。他在美國CNBC的Power Lunch節目上說:「在不遠的未來,我們在新墨西哥會有3架太空船載人們上太空。」
