—“對我來說,不存在任何不治之癥,我原則上什麼也不放棄,任何人也不 放棄,誰也別想讓我嘴里說出‘無法治愈’這幾個字。哪怕是在最絕望的情 況下我會說出口來的最極端的話,乃是︰這種疾病‘目前還不能治愈’—— 意思是說︰我們當代的科學還無法把它治愈。” 日夜撸 影音先锋 海量激情网 “卡尼茲激動得渾身發抖。這一切都以驚人的速度向他涌來,只有在夢 地听她說,這難以理解的變化還一直弄得我暈暈乎乎呢。她的聲音已經完全 變了樣,平時說起後來,語調急促煩躁,現在變得輕快流暢,她那熟悉的臉 龐似乎換了一張,原來病懨懨的萎黃的臉色被新鮮的、更加健康的色澤蓋住, 心神煩亂、漫不經心的手勢已無影無蹤。此刻在我面前坐言一個微微有些醉 意的姑娘,雙眸熠熠生輝,生動的嘴角含著笑意。這種令人暈眩的陶醉不由 自主地也傳到我的心里,像醉酒之後,放松了我內心的抵抗。于是我自己騙 我自己︰也許他說的話是真的,或者會變成真的。說不定我根本沒有欺騙她, 說不定她的確很快就會痊愈。話說到底,我說的並不全是謊話,或者,我說 的謊話不算太多——康多爾的的確確讀到了一篇報道,關于一項令人吃驚的 醫療方法。怎見得這種方法偏偏在這個感情充沛、滿懷信心、使人感動的姑 娘身上不會奏效呢?這個敏感的人兒,單單吹來一陣恢復健康的微風就已經 使她歡欣鼓舞,滿心喜悅。所以為什麼要去阻攔那使她心神清朗的感情的奔 放?為什麼要用垂頭喪氣去折磨她?這可憐的姑娘自己折磨自己的時間已經 夠長了。一個演說家以他空泛的詞句激起了人們充沛的熱情,這種熱情反過 來又變成真正的力量感染了他,同樣,我因為同情心切,言過其實,僅僅因 為這個緣故才使姑娘產生了信心,如今這信心又轉過來侵入我的心里,變得 越來越不可戰勝。未了,做父親的露面的時候,發現我們三個都無優無慮、 情緒高漲。我們海闊天空地聊了一氣,制定了種種計劃,就仿佛艾迪特已經 痊愈,恢復健康。她問我,在什麼地方又能學習騎馬,我們團里的軍官是否 願意給她上課、幫忙?還有,她父親曾經答應過本堂神甫,捐款給教堂蓋個 新的屋頂,是不是現在就該把錢交給神甫?艾迪特無憂無慮地歡笑著、戲謔 著,提出了一系列放肆大膽的計劃,早已把恢復健康當作不言而喻的事。我 心里最後一點抵抗也就此沉默無聲。直到晚上我一個人呆在房間里,心里才 有一個微弱的聲音開始提醒我自己︰她為自己設想的遠景,是否有點過于夸 大?你是否應該給這危險的信心潑點冷水才更為妥當?可是我不讓自己深想 下去。我何必擔心我是否說得大多或者大少呢?即使我許的願遠遠超過我該 說的老實話,又有什麼——我這出于同情心撤的謊已經使她快活起來,而使 人快活,決不可能是罪過或是不公正的行為。5色吧 可是她熱情奔放,興高采烈,我這吞吞吐吐的反駁她根本听不進去。 “?悖 靜渙私饉〈鈾炖錟翹筒懷 瘓淙範ㄎ摶傻幕暗摹U圖片}

The International Space Station (ISS) is a permanently crewed on-orbit laboratory that enables scientific research supporting innovation on Earth and future deep space exploration. From design to launch, 15 countries collaborated to assemble the world's only permanently crewed orbital facility, which can house a crew of six and 150 ongoing experiments annually across an array of disciplines. The ISS represents a global effort to expand our knowledge and improve life on Earth while testing technology that will extend our reach to the moon, Mars and beyond.

Boeing officially turned over the U.S. on-orbit segment of the ISS to NASA on March 5, 2010, and continues to provide key engineering support services and capability enhancements, as well as processing for laboratory experiment racks. Boeing’s assessments have shown it is possible to sustain the life of the station’s primary structural hardware at least through 2030.

Gateway

NASA is working with its partners and suppliers to design and develop the Gateway, a moon-orbiting outpost that will serve as a base for human and robotic expeditions on the moon, and for future missions to Mars. The U.S. presidential administration’s goal of “boots on the moon” in 2024 relies on the Gateway.

Boeing’s Gateway concept builds on the company’s experience from designing, building and operating the ISS for more than 20 years. Boeing is working on a habitation module and an airlock module that doubles as additional living/work space.

Launched aboard rockets including NASA’s Space Launch System, these Gateway modules and others would connect with one another in lunar orbit using NASA’s Orion capsule or a space tug. Following astronauts’ return to the moon’s surface via a lunar lander, the Gateway will become a hub for continuing missions to the moon and Mars for NASA, its international partners, and private companies.

The Nations of the International Space Station

NASA selected Boeing as prime contractor for the International Space Station on Aug. 17, 1993, and the original cost-plus-award-fee contract began on Jan. 13, 1995. Boeing is responsible for maintaining the station at peak performance levels so the full value of the unique research laboratory is available to NASA, its international partners, other U.S. government agencies and private companies.
