We appreciate the students at Ridgeview Junior High for getting us started today.Hi, I'm Carl Azuz.It's May 23rd nd we are ready to launch into today's headlines.

Three, two, one, zero and launch of the SpaceX Falcon 9 Rocket, as NASA turns to the private sector to resupply he International Space Station.

What you're watching is the beginning of a new era in space exploration . It's the first time a commercial rocket,ne owned by a private company, has taken off for the International Space Station.

SpaceX's Falcon 9 Rocket is carrying 1,300 pounds of food, clothes and supplies. The company has a contract with ASA worth nearly $400 million. And it's trying to show that private companies can get to the ISS safely and fficiently.

John Zarrella explains this shift in space exploration.

No one is going to any planets right now, because there are no vehicles that can take anybody to the planet. So ll of these companies are trying to develop their own rockets, their own spacecraft , in order to take U.S.stronauts to the International Space Station.

What NASA decided to do was to get out of the low Earth orbit business.

How do you do that?

You start turning over to commercial companies the flights to the International Space Station, taking crew,taking cargo and eliminating the Space Shuttle program. It was the only way that NASA was going to be able to move out and do the things that NASA does best, which is to do deep space exploration.

So now you have several commercial companies competing for contracts for taking cargo to the International Space Station, competing for contracts to ultimately take astronauts to the International Space Station.

The only place to go right now, until there are space hotels, until there are private space stations, is the International Space Station. So, you know, these companies really need NASA's money and NASA's seed money in order to develop their spacecraft.

And at this point, the only real customer out there to go to the International Space Station, you know, is NASA.

SpaceX is saying that it can charge NASA $20 million a seat to fly astronauts to the International Space Station.

Right now, because NASA has no way to get there but using the Russians and their Soyuz rocket, NASA is paying $50 million to $60 million a seat to the Russians.So a big difference in how much it's going to cost if someone like SpaceX or Orbital, U.S. commercial companies, start flying astronauts. It will bring the cost way down.

We appreciate the students at Ridgeview Junior High for getting us started today.Hi, I'm Carl Azuz.It's May 23rd nd we are ready to launch into today's headlines.

开始我们今天的节目首先感谢里奇中学的学生们。嗨,我是卡尔·阿祖兹。今天是5月23日,让我们开始今天的头条新闻。

Three, two, one, zero and launch of the SpaceX Falcon 9 Rocket, as NASA turns to the private sector to resupply he International Space Station.

三、二、一、零,SpaceX猎鹰9号火箭发射,作为NASA转向私营部门时这家私营公司重新为国际空间站提供补给。

What you're watching is the beginning of a new era in space exploration . It's the first time a commercial rocket,ne owned by a private company, has taken off for the International Space Station.

你正在看到的是太空探索新时代的开始。这是一家私营公司所拥有的商业火箭,它已经起飞飞往国际空间站。

SpaceX's Falcon 9 Rocket is carrying 1,300 pounds of food, clothes and supplies. The company has a contract with ASA worth nearly $400 million. And it's trying to show that private companies can get to the ISS safely and fficiently.

SpaceX公司的猎鹰9号火箭携带1300磅的食物、衣物和物资。公司已与美国宇航局签订价值近4亿美元的合同。它的努力表明私人公司的火箭可以安全有效的前往国际空间站。

John Zarrella explains this shift in space exploration.

约翰·萨雷拉解释太空探索的这种变化。

No one is going to any planets right now, because there are no vehicles that can take anybody to the planet. So ll of these companies are trying to develop their own rockets, their own spacecraft , in order to take U.S.stronauts to the International Space Station.

现在没有人打算前往任何行星,因为没有任何交通工具可以把任何人前往向往的星球。所以所有的这些公司正在努力开发自己的火箭,他们自己的飞船,全部是为了运送美国宇航员到国际空间站。

What NASA decided to do was to get out of the low Earth orbit business.

美国宇航局决定做什么来从事低地球轨道的业务?

How do you do that?

你是怎么做到的?

You start turning over to commercial companies the flights to the International Space Station, taking crew,taking cargo and eliminating the Space Shuttle program. It was the only way that NASA was going to be able to move out and do the things that NASA does best, which is to do deep space exploration.

你开始转向商业公司前往国际空间站的班次,使用船员,装载货物并消除航天飞机项目。这是唯一的方法,这是美国宇航局能够撤出并做的最好的事情,这是更深层次的太空探索。

So now you have several commercial companies competing for contracts for taking cargo to the International Space Station, competing for contracts to ultimately take astronauts to the International Space Station.

所以现在你有几家商业公司在争夺承担至国际空间站货物的合同,竞争最终将宇航员送到国际空间站的合同。

The only place to go right now, until there are space hotels, until there are private space stations, is the International Space Station. So, you know, these companies really need NASA's money and NASA's seed money in order to develop their spacecraft.

现在唯一去的地方是直到有太空酒店,直到有私人空间站,这些都是国际空间站迟早会有的。所以,你知道,为了发展他们的飞船,这些公司真正需要的是美国宇航局的金钱和NASA的种子资金。

And at this point, the only real customer out there to go to the International Space Station, you know, is NASA.

在这一点上,去国际空间站那里唯一真正的客户,你知道,是NASA。

SpaceX is saying that it can charge NASA $20 million a seat to fly astronauts to the International Space Station.

SpaceX称其可以向NASA收取 2000万美元一个座位以供飞宇航员到国际空间站。

Right now, because NASA has no way to get there but using the Russians and their Soyuz rocket, NASA is paying $50 million to $60 million a seat to the Russians.So a big difference in how much it's going to cost if someone like SpaceX or Orbital, U.S. commercial companies, start flying astronauts. It will bring the cost way down.

现在,因为NASA也没有办法到达那里,但是使用俄罗斯和他们的联盟号火箭,NASA正在支付其5000万美元到6000万美元一个座位。如此大的差异到底要花多少钱,如果有人喜欢SpaceX或美国轨道商业公司,开始运载宇航员。它将使成本下降。
