老人一動不動。起先我以為,他根本沒有理解我說的話。可是漸漸地他 那無力的身軀動了起來。他費力地抬起頭來,直愣愣地望著面前的一片虛空。 然後他用雙手抓住桌沿。我發現,他想把他沉重的身體撐起來,他想站起來, 可是沒有馬上辦到。他又試了兩三次,還是氣力不支。最後他終于慢慢地撐 了起來,因為使勁,身體還是搖搖晃晃地站在那里,在黑暗中猶如一個黑影, 兩個瞳孔呆滯不動,活像兩塊黑色的玻璃。然後他自言自語地說道,口氣完 全陌生,漠不關心的神氣叫人听了毛骨悚然。就仿佛他自己的、人的聲音已 經死去︰ 然後我們就圍桌坐定,艾迪恃坐在我的對面。她一次也沒有抬起眼來看 看,跟誰也不說一句話。我們三個人都覺得她這樣強忍著一聲不吭有一股頑 固的勁頭,咄咄逼人,叫人下不了台。正因為這個緣故,我更加使勁地設法 創造氣氛。我便大談我們的上校,他就像個季節性的酒鬼每年照例一到六七 月就要犯“演習病”,大練兵的日期越逼近,他就變得越來越激動,越來越 吹毛求疵︰為了讓這愚蠢的故事妙趣橫生,我就添枝加葉,加油加醋,盡管 我的衣領仿佛直往里緊縮,勒著我的咽喉。然而只有另外兩個人听了發笑, 即便是他倆笑得也很勉強,而且顯然在努力掩蓋艾迪特的令人難堪的沉默。 艾迪特這時卻已經第三次故意夸張地打了個呵欠。可是我對我自己說,你只 管一個勁地往下講吧。于是我接著說,我們現在被他驅來趕去,大家都給弄 得手足無措。盡管昨天有兩名輕騎兵因為中暑從馬上摔下來,這位殘暴的剝 皮上校還是每天收拾我們,而且越來越凶。究竟什麼時候可以離鞍下馬,現 在誰也無法預卜。他這種演習癥一犯,就讓我們把最愚蠢的訓練重復進行二 十次、三十次。今天我費了九牛二虎之力,好不容易才順利地及時溜走,至 于明天我是否能非常準時地前來,那可只有天主和上校大人才知道,上校現 在可是把自己看作天主在人世間的總督呢。色姐妹 “好吧,既然到這兒來給您添了那麼多煩惱,您還是呆在營房里或者咖 啡館里好了。您不來,我們也活得下去的。”激情色图 四十八 這時我已經感到康多爾的手像施催眠術似地撫摩我的膝蓋。姐妹综合久久 于是我在伙伴們暴風雨般的喝彩聲中策馬走出馴馬場,緊勒住韁繩,把 這匹降伏了的坐騎帶到城外,然後引上草地。馬兒走得輕松舒暢,我自己也 感到輕松舒暢。我的全部火氣和憤怒在這費勁吃力的一小時里已經完全發泄 到這頭桀驁不馴的牲口身上;現在愷撒馴良平和地踏著小跑步,我必須承認 施泰因許貝說得對︰愷撒的步態的確非常優美。奔馳起來,哪一匹馬也及不 上它那麼瀟灑,柔和,富有彈性。我原來的不快漸漸消失,代之以一種享受 美味似的、幾乎像做夢似的愉快心情。我騎著這匹馬轉來轉去,足足一個鐘 頭。最後,到四點半,我便慢慢地策騎回營。我們兩個,愷撒和我,今天都 受夠了。我讓馬兒踏著舒舒服服、顛簸搖擺的小跑步,沿著我十分熟悉的公 路又返回城里,我自己也已經有些暈暈乎乎。這時候從我身後大聲響起了刺 耳的汽車喇叭聲。神經質的紅鬃烈馬立刻豎起耳朵,渾身開始發抖。可是我 及時感到,馬兒受驚了,便一把抓緊韁繩,兩腿一夾,把馬兒從大路中央趕 到路邊一棵樹的旁邊,讓汽車能夠順利無阻地通過。

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.
