The goal is for Rosetta to orbit the comet for the next year and observe it as it heads towards the sun. The most important part of the mission is expected to come in November when the spacecraft will send a mechanical probe to land on the surface of Comet 67P. It will be the first soft landing on the surface of a comet.

来年罗塞塔围绕这颗彗星的目的是观测这颗彗星围绕太阳的情况。这项任务最关键的部分是,在十一月份罗塞塔会发射一个机械探测器到彗星67P表面。这将是在彗星表面的第一次软着陆。

 

Scientists hope Rosetta will provide more information about comets. Many scientists believe these objects hold icy remains from the creation of the solar system.

科学家们希望罗塞塔可以为他们提供更多有关于彗星的信息。许多科学家认为这颗彗星会保持太阳系形成初期的冰冻状态。

 

Scientists Hope to Unlock the Secrets of the Young Solar System

科学家们希望解开年轻的太阳系的秘密。

 

 

The spacecraft is named for a stone that helped investigators understand the meaning of the hieroglyphic language of the ancient Egyptians. Rosetta scientists hope that the spacecraft will unlock the secrets of the beginning of the solar system or even the beginnings of life itself.

航天器的名字罗塞塔源自一个帮助研究者理解古埃及象形文字的一块石头。科学家希望航天器罗塞塔可以解开太阳系的起源之谜。

 

Some scientists believe comets contain the materials that helped life start on Earth. The icy bodies are believed to have brought water and other substances to the planet as they struck earth's surface.

一些科学家认为彗星包含可以帮助地球开始存在生命的物质。当彗星撞击地球时会带来水和其他物质。

 

Rosetta has traveled over 6 billion kilometers since its launch from earth in March 2004. It made a series of flybys of Mars and Earth to gain speed and position itself into the same orbital path as Comet 67P.

2004年三月份从地球发射起罗塞塔已经飞行了60亿公里。罗塞塔对火星和地球进行了许多次近天体探测飞行从而获得速度,使自己进入彗星67P的运行轨道。

 

Rosetta's systems were partly shut off for two years to save power. Engineers fully restarted the spacecraft in January as it moved closer to the comet.

罗塞塔航天器的大部分系统关闭了两年,从而达到节省能源的目的。在一月份彗星距离罗塞塔越来越近的时候,工程师将航天器的系统全部重新启动。
