不去控告天主,而來控訴我們這些身體健康的人。然而,恰好在這可怕的挑 釁里我感覺到,她在這種困苦的狀況中一定受了無窮無盡的痛苦,我這時的 感覺遠比上次我請她跳舞、她絕望地發作時要強烈一千倍。她把她那備受摧 殘的瘦小身體的全部重量使勁地從一根拐杖上挪開,壓到另一根拐杖上,身 子東搖西擺地,終于邁完那幾步路,走到門口,好像走了一生一世;我沒有 勇氣向門口看上一眼。那拐杖生硬、刺耳的聲音,邁步時,拐杖擊地的篤篤 聲,機簧和皮帶的磨擦聲,再加上她困使勁而發出的沉重喘息聲使我心里無 比壓抑,也非常激動,以致我感到,我的心髒已經跳出胸膛,踫到我的軍裝 上了。她已經走出了房間,可我還一直屏息傾听。在緊閉著的門後,那可怕 的聲響越來越弱,最後完全消逝。一起射 “ ——還題了字!听听,你們听听!我們親愛的伙伴安托尼?霍夫米一起撸 人人碰 “我說,這是原因之一,但主要卻是私人的原因。這個原因您也許會更加容易理解。那就是我 懷疑自己的資格,反正徹底懷疑我的英雄行為。我自己總比那些瞪著眼楮傻看傻瞧的陌生人知道得更 加清楚,佩帶這枚勛章的那個人絕非英雄,甚至可說正好是英雄的反面。有些人想要擺脫絕望的境地, 因而狂熱地投入戰爭,他就是其中之一。與其說是忠于職守的英雄,毋寧說是怕負責任的逃兵。我不 知道您的感覺如何,我至少覺得頭戴祥光和聖人光圈這樣的生活是極不自然、難以忍受的。自從我用 不著在我的軍裝上面掛著我的英雄業績招搖過市以來,我真覺得如釋重負。要是有人把我往日的光榮 抖摟出來,我現在遼會火冒三丈的。我何必不向您承認呢,昨天我差一點要走到您的桌邊向那個饒舌 的家伙嚷嚷,他要吹牛讓他拿別人去吹,別吹我。整個晚上您那充滿敬意的眼光一直叫我心里難受, 為了更正這個饒舌家伙的胡言亂語,我恨不得強迫您听我說,我是如何通過曲折的道路才當上這個英 雄的——這是一段離奇的故事,但它至少可以證明,勇氣往往不是別的,恰好是真正的軟弱。反正, 就是現在叫我把這故事坦率地講給您听,我也毫無顧慮。一個人生活中二十五年前發生的住事,已經 和他不再相干,早已是另一個人的事情了。您現在有空嗎?您听著不覺得無聊嗎?”

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.
