朝鲜火箭试射可能因大雪而延迟 North Korea Rocket Launch Possibly Delayed by Snow

07 December, 2012

一个美国智囊机构说,朝鲜为计划中的火箭试射所进行的准备工作可能由于大雪天气而延迟。

美国约翰•霍普金斯大学的美韩研究所星期五说,新的卫星图片显示,西海卫星发射场的准备工作进度“比以前报道的进度要慢”。

卫星图片分析专家汉森在美韩研究所的网站上写道,星期二拍摄的卫星图片显示,西海卫星发射场积雪很深,而雪上没有痕迹。

但汉森指出,尽管受到天气的拖延,朝鲜仍可能按预定计划完成准备工作。

An American think tank says North Korea's preparations for a planned rocket launch may have been delayed by heavy snow.

The US-Korea Institute at Johns Hopkins University said Friday that new satellite imagery suggests preparations at the Sohai satellite launch station are proceeding "more slowly than previously reported."

Nick Hansen, an expert on imagery analysis, wrote on the institute's website that images taken on Tuesday showed no tracks in heavy snow at the launch site.

However, Hansen said that, even with weather delays, the North could finish its preparations on schedule.
