They were inspired by big progress. But look at the progress that's going on after that.
他们被巨大的进步所鼓舞。但看看那之后的进步。
There were a couple of examples here. The military fighters had a -- highest-performance military airplane was the SR71.
这里有两个例子。军事战斗机有一架最高性能的空军飞机是SR71。
It went a whole life cycle, got too rusty to fly, and was taken out of service.
它走过了整个生命周期,直到锈迹斑斑才停滞飞行,退出服役。
The Concorde doubled the speed for airline travel. It went a whole life cycle without competition, took out of service.
协和式飞机使空军旅行速度翻倍。它飞过了整个生命周期,没有遇到任何竞争;然后停飞。
And we're stuck back here with the same kind of capability for military fighters and commercial airline travel that we had back in the late '50s.
而我们就此卡住,拥有这样的军事战斗机和商业航空旅行,我们回到了50年代末期。

But something is out there to inspire our kids now. And I'm talking about if you've got a baby now, or if you've got a 10-year-old now.
但现在出现了一些事情去鼓舞我们的孩子。我是说如果你现在有一个婴儿,或你有一个10岁的孩子。
What's out there is there's something really interesting going to happen here.
外面正在发生一些非常有趣的事情。
Relatively soon, you'll be able to buy a ticket and fly higher and faster than the highest-performance military operational airplane.
不久,你就能买张票,然后飞地比最高性能的军事作战飞机更高、更快。
It's never happened before. The fact that they have stuck here with this kind of performance has been,
这在之前从未发生过。事实是它们拥有着这种性能的飞行器却止步不前,
well, you know, you win the war in 12 minutes; why do you need something better?
那么,你知道,你在12分钟之内赢得了这场战争,为什么你需要更好的东西?
But I think when you guys start buying tickets and flying sub-orbital flights to space, very soon --
但我认为当你们开始卖票,开始亚轨道飞行,通往太空,很快--
wait a minute, what's happening here, we'll have military fighters with sub-orbital capability, and I think very soon this.
稍等,这里发生了什么,我们将拥有军事战斗机,这些战斗机拥有沿亚轨道飞行的能力,我认为这很快就会发生。
But the interesting thing about it is the commercial guys are going to go first.
但有趣的是,商业飞行器现具有这种能力。
OK, I look forward to a new "capitalist's space race," let's call it.
好,我期待一场新的资本主义太空竞赛,让我们呼唤它。
