US Space Agency Returns to Mars with InSight Lander

The American space agency's lander InSight is to arrive on Mars at the end of November,2018。 Unlike NASA's Curiosity rover, InSight will not move across the planet's surface。 Instead it will become the first spacecraft (航天器) used only for exploring underground。 It will study the geography of Mars, searching for signs of Martian (火星的) quakes。

InSight is a project of U.S. and Europe. It is 6 meters long and 1.5 meters wide. It weighs 360kilograms. InSight's 1 .8 -meter robotic arm will put two experiments in place. Both are designed toexplore underground of Mars to learn about the inside.

Bruce Banerdt is the lead scientist for InSight. He viewed the spacecraft as a robot that can take care of itself. "It's got its own brain. It's got an arm. It can listen and feel things. It pulls its own power out of the sun," he noted.

Thomas Zurbuchen, one of the heads in NASA, said the results of the InSight project could "change the way we think about the inside of our earth. " But, first, InSight will have to land on Mars undamaged. Since Mars exploration started in the 1960s, only about 40 percent of the explorations have succeeded.

Tom Hoffman is InSight's project manager. He said earlier successes do not lessen the concerns for each new exploration. "That we ve done it before doesn't mean we' re not nervous and excited about doing it again," he said.

InSight will enter the Martian atmosphere (大气层) traveling at 19,800 kilometers an hour。 It will slow for landing on a wide flat area on Mars。 If all goes well, InSight could carry out its experiments in about 10 weeks。 The InSight project is expected to continue for one Martian year, about two years on Earth。

1.What is the difference between InSight and NASA's Curiosity rover ?

A. The size。    B. The design。    C. The speed.    D。 The task.

C. InSight has the functions (功能) of a robot.

3.What will be one of the contributions (奉献) of the InSight project according to Zurbuchen?

D. It will get more information about the reasons for Mars quakes.

4.What is Hoffman's attitude towards this exploration of the InSight?

Never before have Chinese Internet users so openly liked and supported a Japanese athlete as they have loved table tennis star Ai Fukuhara (福原爱), better known by her Japanese nickname “Ai-Chan”.

But they may now feel heartbroken, as the 29-year-old said on Oct.21 that she would retire (退役) from the sport. I’ve found the answers within myself that I have been searching for. From the standpoint ( 立场) of an athlete, I'm drawing the line here," Fukuhara wrote on her blog.

Although she was beaten by a long line of Chinese players, Fukuhara always tries her best when playing her favorite sport. Yet, she also knows that now is the best time to close the curtain on her successful career. It's hard to say goodbye to a long journey but as Fukuhara once said on a reality TV show, “Life is not all about table tennis. Instead, it is just part of life.”

As for her future plans, Fukuhara wrote that she would like to help more people around the world get to know the beauty of the sport。

Oct。15th was International White Cane Safety Day。 You may have never heard of it, but it was a day to remember for Peng Baier, 17, of Nanjing Foreign Language School。 After school that day, he visited his local Disabled Persons’ Federation (残疾人联合会)。 He wanted to know about the sales and feedback (反馈) of his newly published book, How to Help a Disabled Person。

Since he lives with his disabled grandparents, he understands that life can be hard for this group of people。 Peng decided to write the book because he wanted to create a better life for disabled people in China。

“Crossing the street is a big problem for them,” Peng said. “Speeding cars, people walking in a hurry, bikes on the sidewalk for the blind - accidents can happen everywhere. That's why we hardly ever see disabled people on the street, even though there are millions of disabled people in China.”

Peng's book with pictures is easy to understand. It is a guide to the right and wrong ways to treat disabled people. The left-hand pages show the reader the right way; the right-hand pages point out mistakes that are commonly made.

The teenager had 2,000 copies of his book printed。 With the help of the Disabled Persons’ Federation, he gave them to the disabled community。

“The book is bilingual, so foreigners can also use it,” said Peng.

Peng put great effort into the book. For example, he interviewed many disabled people to get first hand materials. He also studied textbooks from different schools for the disabled. Peng finally completed his handbook, but he still had the problem of getting it printed.

How does a high school student raise money needed for that?

With a smile, Peng said how he went about it. “I visited three local companies, dressed up in a suit and tie. I was lucky. The companies were warm-hearted and willing to give me a hand.”

1。Why is Peng able to understand the hard life of the disabled people?

A. He was born disabled.

B. He has a disabled friend.

C。 He lives with his disabled grandparents。

D. He once read a book about the disabled.

2.Which of the following is NOT mentioned about Peng effort for the book?

A. Raising the money needed.

B。 Giving away his pocket money。

C. Interviewing many disabled people.

D. Studying textbooks for the disabled.

3。What does the underlined word bilingual mean in paragraph 6?

A. Written in two languages.

B. Using different pictures.

C。 Very easy to understand.

D。 Very popular around the world.

4。What words can best describe Peng?

A. Devoted and honest。

B. Brave and confident。

C. Kind and helpful.

D。 Friendly and lovely.
