It is interesting how NASA(美国航空航天管理局)chose their astronauts for landing them on the moon. They chose men 16 the age of twenty and thirty-five. There were about fifty of them, many were 17 air pilots. 18 were scientists with two or three degrees. NASA telephoned each man they were going to choose; told him the plans and the 19 they might get in. They then asked him if he was willing to be trained as an astronaut. “How could any man 20 such an exciting job?”
One of them said, “Dangerous? Of course. It's dangerous 21 most exciting”
The health and physical condition of 22 was, of course, necessary. 23 those in very good health and physical condition were chosen.
While being trained to be astronauts. they went through many 24 . They studied the star and the moon, and they also studied geology, the science of rocks. This was necessary 25 astronauts would have to look for rocks on the moon. They would try to find rocks which might help to tell the 26 of the moon. They were all 27 to fly in helicopters (直升飞机)。These helicopters landed 28 down to give them some experience of the way the spaceship would 29 land on the moon , They were also taught the 30 facts about the conditions in space. They learnt all the technical details of the spaceships and rockets. They visited the scientists and engineers who 31 them. They visited the factories where they were 32 . They learnt how every 33 of a space-ship and its instruments work. They also learnt every detail of ground-control 34 .

MOSCOW, Sept. 4 (Xinhua net)--- At least 335 people including 155 children, were killed in the three-day hostage crisis (人质危机) in a southern Russian school, Russia's Deputy Prosecutor General Sergei Fridinsky said on Saturday.
“We are still identifying the bodies. We have recovered 322 bodies, and 155 of them are children,” Fridinsky was quoted by the Itar-Tass news agency as saying.
The prosecutor said the death toll would probably grow as the clean-up operation is continuing at the site, but it will not rise considerably.
Emergency workers pulled the bodies out of the school on Saturday, after Russian
special forces rescued more than 400 children and adults hostages in a special operation that has suppressed (平定)the hostage -taking standoff by Friday night.
Valery Andreyev, regional chief of the Federal Security Service(FSS), said Friday that over 30 armed militants took part in the hostage-taking crisis and Russian troops captured three of them alive on Friday, according to the Interfax news agency.
He said people of Russian origin and foreign nationals were among the killed hostage-takers. Earlier official information showed that ten Arab militants were killed in Friday's raid(突袭).
Andreyev said a large amount of explosives(爆炸物) and mines planted by hostage-takers in the school have been found.
Russian President Vladimir Putin made a surprise visit early Saturday to the southern Russian town of Beslan where commandos (突击队) stormed the school to end the hostage crisis. He accused the attackers of trying to spark an racial conflict that would engulf (卷入)Russia's troubled Caucasus Mountains region.

It is hard to predict(预言)how science is going to turn out, and whether it is really good science, it is impossible to predict. If the things to be found are actually new, they must be unknown in advance. You cannot make choices on this matter. You either have science or you don't and if you have it you have to accept the surprising and disturbing pieces of information, along with the neat and useful bits.
The only solid piece of scientific truth about which I feel totally confident is that we don't know enough about nature. Indeed, I regard this as the major discovery of the past hundred years of biology. It is, in its way, a clear piece of news. It would have amazed the brightest minds of the 18th century to be told by any of us how little we know and how strange the way ahead seems. In earlier times, they either pretended to understand how things worked or simply made up stories to give answers. Now that we have begun exploring seriously, we are catching sight of how huge the questions are, and how far from being answered. Because of this, we are sorry. It is not so bad being ignorant(无知的)if you are totally ignorant; the hard thing is knowing in some details the reality of ignorance, the worst spots and here and there the not so bad spots, but no true light at the end of the tunnel nor even any tunnels that can yet be trusted.
But we are making a beginning, and there ought to be some satisfaction. There are probably no questions we can think up that can't be answered, sooner or later. Within our limits, we should be able to work our way through to all our answers, if we keep at it long enough, and pay attention.
51. According to the writer, really good science .
A.would surprise the brightest minds of the 18th century.
B.will help people to make the right choice in advance
C.will produce results which cannot be predicted
D.will bring about disturbing results
52. It can be inferred from the passage that scientists of the 18th century .
A.thought that they knew a great deal and could deal with most problems of science.
B.knew that they were ignorant and wanted to know more about nature
C.were afraid of facing up to the realities of scientific research
D.did more harm than good in man's understanding of nature
53. Which of the following is NOT mentioned about scientists in earlier times?
A.They falsely declared to know all about nature.
B.They did not believe in results from scientific observation.
C.They paid little attention to the problems they didn't understand.
D.They invented false rules to explain things they didn't understand.
54. What is the writer's attitude towards science?
A.He is sorry because of the ignorance of scientists.
B.He is delighted because of the latest scientific findings.
C.He is doubtful because of the great difficulties in scientific research.
D.He is confident though he knows well the great difficulties in scientific research.
55. The writer believes that sooner or later .

B.man can find solutions to whatever questions concerning nature he can think up

It is known to all that the 2008 Olympic Games will be held in Beijing. In order to make it a successful event, we will improve the environment of Beijing and build more venues. At the same time, it is necessary for us to improve the quality and culture of the citizens as manners play an important role in international communication. I notice that sometimes some young people don't behave properly in our daily lives. For example, spitting in public places can be seen somewhere. The lawns are entered in the park although it is not right to do so. The flowers in public garden are picked. What is worse, rubbish and plastic bags are thrown on the ground in the streets.
In my opinion, these bad behaviors will make bad impressions upon visitors to China, which will ruin the good reputation of China as a large country with a long history. So every one of us should form good habits from now on.
