洛马NASA打造“太空旅行房车”

Emily Price 2018年08月26日

如果得到采用,该设备将被送到环绕地球的深空通道太空站。

洛克希德·马丁(Lockheed Martin)正在打造类似“太空旅行”房车的工具。它可以在火星或月球表面供最多四位宇航员居住。

Inverse报道称,洛克希德是与美国国家航空和宇宙航行局(NASA)签下6,500万美元订单,在今年研发栖息装置原型的六家私人公司之一。这六家公司将向NASA展示原型,NASA会选出“优胜者”,打造出可投产的宇宙飞船。

参与竞争的公司还包括波音(Boeing)、内华达山脉的Space Systems、Orbital ATK、NanoRack和毕格罗航天公司(Bigelow Aerospace)。洛克希德上周在肯尼迪航天中心(Kennedy Space Center)展示了自己的原型车,也是其中第一家发布原型的公司。

洛克希德的原型只有22英尺长,直径15英尺,看起来像是可以在地球上用于野营的产品。除了具备搭载功能外,它还配有生命维持装置、睡眠站和健身器械。

如果得到采用,该设备将被送到环绕地球的深空通道(Deep Space Gateway)太空站。这里将作为它前往其他目的地的起点。(财富中文网)

Lockheed Martin is working on a “space RV” of sorts that could be used as a home for up to four astronauts on the surface of places like Mars or the moon.

The company was among six private companies that entered into a $65 million contract with NASA to build a prototype of the habitat this year, Inverse reports. All six companies will develop a prototype and then present it to NASA, which will ultimately select a “winner” to build a production model of the spacecraft.

Other companies in the running include Boeing, Sierra Nevada’s Space Systems, Orbital ATK, NanoRacks, and Bigelow Aerospace. Lockheed is the first to show off its prototype, which was unveiled last week at Kennedy Space Center.

Measuring just 22 feet long and 15 feet in diameter, it looks a lot like something that could be used for camping on earth. In addition to passengers, it will also feature life support machines, sleep stations, and exercise machines.

If approved, the structure would orbit the moon on the Deep Space Gateway space station that is to be used as a jumping off point to other destinations.
