Several high-tech companies are teaming up on a plan to put a mobile phone network on the moon next year.

幾家高科技公司正為明年在月球上搭建一套手機通訊網絡而通力合作。

Vodaphone Germany, Nokia, and Audi are working on a mobile network and robotic vehicles that are part of a private expedition to the moon, timed to coincide with the 50th anniversary year of the first manned lunar landing.

德國沃達豐,諾基亞以及奧迪公司正在研發一套手機通訊網絡和自動化探測器,這些向月球發起的私人探險的一部分,該探險剛好趕上人類首次登月任務的第50個周年慶。

The project with PTScientists in Germany would use a 4G network to send high-definition information from rovers back to a lunar lander, which would then be able to communicate it back to Earth.

該由德國PTScientists參與的計劃將使用4G網絡發送來自月球探測車的高分辨率信息至月球著陸器,而后著陸器將有能力與地球進行通訊。

Project scientists say the system uses less energy than having rovers speak directly to Earth, leaving more power for scientific activities.

項目中的科學家稱相比于讓探測器直接和地球通訊,該系統消耗的能量更少,從而可以為科學研究活動保留更多能源。

They plan to launch the vehicles from Cape Canaveral next year on a Space X Falcon 9 rocket.

他們計劃明年搭載SpaceX的“獵鷹9號”火箭將探測器從Cape Canaveral(卡納拉維爾角)發射升空。
