  Elon Musk’s SpaceX, demonstrating its founder and chief executive’s
penchant for showmanship, announced that it had signed up the first private
passenger seeking to fly around the moon. But the company provided no timetable
or other details about the plan.
          马斯克(Elon
Musk)麾下的SpaceX宣布签下全球首位绕月飞行私人乘客,但没有提供时间表和其他细节。此举尽显CEO兼创始人马斯克喜爱博人眼球的行事风格。
          In a message on Twitter Thursday night, the closely held Space Exploration
Technologies Corp. said the mission is slated to use its largest rocket, dubbed
the BFR, which is still under development and, according to industry officials,
may be at least a year or two from an initial test flight.
          由少数人持股的Space Exploration Technologies Corp.
(SpaceX)在周四晚间发表推文称,将使用SpaceX最大的火箭BFR来完成这项任务。BFR目前还在开发阶段,据业内管理人士说,可能需要至少一两年才能试飞。
          In the message, however, SpaceX described the latest plan as “an important
step toward enabling access for everyday people who dream of traveling to
space.” The identity of the passenger and other specifics are expected to be
revealed Monday.
          不过SpaceX在推文中指出,这项最新计划是让怀揣太空旅行之梦的普通人梦想成真的重要一步。这位乘客的身份和其他详细资料预计将于下周一公布。
          Thursday’s two-sentence statement—which caught a number of space experts
off guard—suggests that Mr. Musk hopes to demonstrate momentum and attract more
public attention to plans for his mammoth rocket and its associated spacecraft,
intended to be bigger than a superjumbo airliner. As described previously by Mr.
Musk, the BFR would be larger and more powerful than any rocket in history.
          周四发布的两句话声明让航天专家们倍感意外,显示出马斯克希望展现活力,吸引公众关注他的巨型火箭和相关航天器计划,这枚火箭的计划建造尺寸比一架超大型客机还要大。正如马斯克所描述的,BFR将比史上任何火箭都更大、更有力量。
