India calls off Chandrayaan 2 lunar mission due to ‘technical snag’ less than an hour before launch

India’s mission to the unexplored regions of the Moon, Chandrayaan 2, was postponed as a precaution due to a technical glitch 56 minutes before the launch. The country’s space agency will announced the revised launch date later.

由于在发射前56分钟时出现技术故障,为以防万一,印度推迟了前往月球未探测区域探测的“月船2号”探测器任务。印度国家航天局稍后将宣布修订后的发射日期。

No additional details about the problem or the new date of the launch have yet been revealed by the Indian Space Research Organization.

印度太空研究组织还没有透露这个问题的更多相关细节,也没有透露这个发射任务的新发射日期。

It was planned that Chandrayaan 2 would blast into space from the Sriharikota launch site on the coast of the Bay of Bengal at 02:51 local time on July 15 (21:21 GMT July 14).

按原定计划,月船2号本应该于当地时间7月15日02:51(格林尼治时间7月14日21:21)从孟加拉湾海岸的Sriharikota发射场发射升空。

The ambitious space project, which ISRO head Kailasavadivoo Sivan called “the most complex mission” his agency has “ever undertaken,” includes an orbiter, a lander, and a rover, as well as an array of scientific instruments. It would make India the fourth country to soft-land a spacecraft on the Moon, after the US, Russia, and China.

印度太空研究组织负责人凯拉萨瓦迪沃·西万称,这项雄心勃勃的太空计划是该机构“有史以来”执行的“最复杂的任务”,整个系统包括一个轨道飞行器、一个着陆器、一个月球车,以及一系列的科学仪器。这个计划将使印度成为继美国、俄罗斯和中国之后第四个在月球上实现软着陆的国家。
