MUMBAI: The main brain behind Nasa’s latest physics experiment to create the coldest spot in the universe — Anita Sengupta, an Indian-American — has a strong connect with India as her father is from West Bengal. The spot created by Cold Atom Laboratory (CAL) is expected to be 10 billion times colder than the vacuum of space.

孟买:美国国家航空航天局最新物理实验创造了宇宙中最冷的地方,其核心成员——印度裔美国人安妮塔·森古普塔与印度关系密切,她父亲原为西孟加拉邦人。冷原子实验室创造的空间预计将比太空真空冷100亿倍。

CAL, flown to the International Space Station (ISS) on Monday by an Antares rocket from Nasa’s Wallops facility at Virginia, United States, could potentially lead to a number of technologies, including sensors, quantum computers and atomic clocks used in spacecraft navigation, said Nasa. “CAL will make it possible to observe these ultra-cold atoms much longer in the microgravity environment,” the space agency stated.

美国国家航空航天局称,美国弗吉尼亚州沃洛普斯飞行中心周一发射一枚心宿二火箭,向国际空间站输送冷原子实验室。这项研究的结果可能会带来一系列改进的技术,包括用于航天器导航的传感器、量子计算机和原子钟。太空总署表示,“在国际空间站的微重力环境中,超冷原子能保持更长时间的波形,使科学家有机会从容地观察它们的行为”。

Sengupta, who said she proposed the mission, had played a key role in the successful landing of Nasa’s Curiosity rover on Mars on August 6, 2012.

森古普塔表示这项任务是她提出的。2012年8月6日,美国宇航局“好奇号”火星探测器的成功着陆火星,森古普塔发挥了关键作用。

Responding TOI’s queries on Monday, Sengupta said that CAL will investigate the properties of “Bose Einstein Condensate, a state of matter that only occurs just above absolute zero”.

周一,森古普塔回答《印度时报》提问时表示,冷原子实验室将研究“玻色-爱因斯坦凝聚体的性质,在接近绝对零度时所呈现出的一种物质状态”。

She said the experiment, which took over five years to develop, will help one give new insight into the nature of the atom and early expansion of the universe. “We have designed it to be modular, repairable and upgradable by astronauts on board the ISS and it can last for several years,” she told TOI.

她表示,这项实验历时5年,这将使我们对原子的性质和宇宙的早期扩展有新的认识。她对《印度时报》说:“国际空间站内的宇航员可以自行组装、修复、升级实验室,而且这实验室可以持续使用数年。”

According to Sengupta, these technology demonstrations are needed for future space-based quantum sensors which could enable more precise measurements of gravity, magnetic fields and in-space navigation.
据森古普塔说,未来的太空量子传感器需要这些技术演示,这些传感器可以更精确地测量重力、磁场和空间导航。

She is currently the V-P of Hyperloop One and had visited Mumbai in 2013.

森古普塔目前担任超级高铁Hyperloop One系统工程的高级副总裁。她于2013年到访过孟买。

I don''t understand why these Pappu Pidis and Pigs poke their noses in every matter and drags Modi/BJP in it?!!This article has no relation with Modi and BJP but even though these paid Tattus come here to post bakwas comments!!

我就不明白了。。为什么哪哪都有拉胡尔的人,还总是把莫迪跟人民党扯进来。这篇文章跟莫迪还有人民党没有半毛钱关系。。

What a shame. Had she been in India she could have contributed greatly to improvising tea and pakoda making techniques. Our loss!

真遗憾。。她如果在印度,就可以大大提高制茶及制作Pakoda的技术。。损失大了。。
