聰,親愛的孩子,很少這麼久不給你寫信的。從七月初起你忽而維也納,忽而南美,行蹤飄忽,恐去信落空。彌拉又說南美各處郵政很不可靠,故雖給了我許多通訊處,也不想寄往那兒。七月二十九用七張風景片寫成的信已于八月九日收到。委內瑞拉的城街,智利的河山,前年曾在外國雜志上見過彩色照相,來信所雲,頗能想像一二。現代國家的發展太畸形了,尤其像南美那些落後的國家。一方面人民生活窮困,一方面物質的設備享用應有盡有。照我們的理想,當然先得消滅不平等,再來逐步提高。無奈現代史實告訴我們,革命比建設容易,消滅少數人所壟斷的享受並不大難,提高多數人的生活卻非三五年八九年所能見效。尤其是精神文明,總是普及易,提高難;而在普及的階段中往往降低原有的水準,連保持過去的高峰都難以辦到。再加老年,中年,青年三代脫節,缺乏接班人,國內外溝通交流幾乎停止,恐怕下一輩連什麼叫標準,前人達到過怎樣的高峰,眼前別人又到了怎樣的高峰,都不大能知道;再要迎頭趕上也就更談不到了。這是前途的隱憂;過去十一二年中所造成的偏差與副作用,最近一年正想竭力扭轉;可是十年種的果,已有積重難返之勢;而中老年知識分子的意氣消沉的情形,尚無改變跡象,當然不是從他們口頭上,而是從實際行動上觀察。人究竟是唯物的,沒有相當的客觀條件,單單指望知識界憑熱情苦干,而且干出成績來,也是不現實的。我所以能堅守陣地,耕種自己的小園子,也有我特殊優越的條件,不能責望于每個人。何況就以我來說,體力精力的衰退,已經給了我很大的限制,老是感到心有余而力不足! 人人爱 所謂冷靜,不但是表面的行動,尤其內心和思想都要做到。當然這一點是很難。人總是人,感情上來,不容易控制,年輕人沒有戀愛經驗更難維持身心的平衡,同時與各入的氣質有關。我生平總不能臨事沉著,極容易激動,這是我的大缺點。幸而事後還能客觀分析,周密思考,才不致于使當場的意氣繼續發展,鬧得不可收拾。我告訴你這一點,讓你知道如臨時不能克制,過後必須由理智來控制大局︰該糾正的就糾正,該向人道歉的就道歉,該收篷時就收篷,總而言之,以上二點歸納起來只是︰感情必須由理智控制。要做到,必須下一番苦功在實際生活中長期鍛煉。久久爱 一九六一年九月十四日晨 久看在线视频 的確,中國優秀傳統的人生哲學,很少西方人能接受,更不用說實踐了。比如“富貴于我如浮雲”在你我是一條極崇高極可羨的理想準則,但像巴爾扎克筆下的那些人物,正好把富貴作為人生最重要的,甚至是唯一的目標。他們那股向上爬,求成功的蠻勁與狂熱,我個人簡直覺得難以理解。也許是氣質不同,並非多數中國人全是那麼淡泊。我們不能把自己人太理想化。

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.
