时速32英里! 英国'钢铁侠'创造飞行速度新纪录

British inventor Richard Browning truly looks out of this world as he makes his mark in the pages of the Guinness Book of World Records. 近日,英国发明家理查德·布朗宁真正做到了放眼望世界,他在吉尼斯世界纪录中留下了自己的印记。 Dubbed the "real-life Iron Man", he has broken the record for the fastest speed in a body-controlled jet engine power suit. 有着“现实生活中的钢铁侠”之称的布朗宁,打破了以身体控制的喷气发动机动力套装最快飞行速度的纪录。 Wearing the 40,000 pounds suit which he designed himself, Browning reached 32.02 miles per hour and created a new record, which he himself hopes to "smash" in the future. 身穿自己设计的价值4万英镑的套装,布朗宁的时速达到32.02英里,创造了新的世界纪录,他本人希望未来能够再次刷新这一成绩。 The suit takes off vertically and can be controlled by moving the arms, while a display screen inside the helmet gives updates on fuel consumption. 这套装备可以垂直起飞,可以通过移动手臂进行控制,头盔内部装载的显示屏则可实时更新油耗状况。 Browning said: "I am delighted we have set the record, and I have no doubt that this is just the beginning." 布朗宁称:“我很高兴创下了这一纪录,毫无疑问,这仅仅是个开始。” The Royal Marines reservist, from Wiltshire, said he has long been fascinated by the possibilities of human flight propulsion and worked on his flight suit for three years before debuting it in April. 这位来自威尔特郡的英国皇家海军预备役军人表示,他一直以来都非常着迷于探索人类飞行的可能性,而这款飞行装置在于今年4月亮相之前,总共耗费了他近三年时间来打造。 He was inspired by his father, an aeronautical engineer who worked at helicopter manufacturer Westland but wanted to be an inventor. 他的灵感来自于他的父亲。他的父亲是一名航空工程师,曾在直升机制造厂商韦斯特兰公司工作,但却一直想成为一名发明家。 来自:VOA英语网 文章地址: http://www.tingvoa.com/html/20180516/558413.html
