五、阅读理解(共 17 小题;共 34 分) A The space shuttle Discovery has had a long and busy career. For 27 years, it has worked for NASA, carrying astronauts to space and back on 39 missions. On March 9, 2011, after returning from its final voyage, the world's most traveled spaceship was retired. A crowd of shuttle workers, reporters and schoolchildren waited to greet Discovery at Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida. Three minutes before noon, they watched as the shuttle appeared in the sky and made one last touchdown. “For the final time: wheels stop,” Discovery's commander Steven Lindsey said when the shuttle rolled to a stop. Discovery's final trip was to the International Space Station (ISS), a giant space lab in the sky. Discovery's crew took care of the last U.S. construction project at ISS. They delivered 10 tons of supplies for the ISS. The


six-person crew also dropped off an unusual companion for ISS's researchers: a human-like robot named Robonaut 2. Astronauts will assemble( 组 装 ) R2 at the ISS over several months. Now, NASA is winding down its shuttle programme. NASA is to begin work on new spaceships that can travel longer distances. Discovery's retirement is the first of three. Endeavor, another shuttle, is scheduled to make its final voyage soon. And Atlantis's last trip is planned for the end of June. Museums across the country have requested the retired shuttles.

Learn to Be an Astronaut C. Come and Take a Space Walk C Barbara Moran's life-long dream has been to travel into space. On August 15, 2007 her wish came true. The former teacher was one of seven crew members aboard the Space Shuttle Endeavour, which blasted off into space from NASA's Kennedy Space Station in Florida. Morgan, 55, spoke to students at the Discovery Science Center in Boise, Idaho. Morgan taught at an elementary school in Boise from 1975 to 1998—with some time off for astronaut training. In 1985, she was selected as a backup(候选人) for Christa McAuliffe, who was to be the first teacher in space. The two women were chosen from 11,000 applicants to be part of the teacher-in-space program. They trained side-by-side for the mission. But then, tragedy struck. On January 28, 1986, just 73 seconds after takeoff, the Space Shuttle Challenger, exploded, killing McAuliffe and the other six crew members. After the Challenger accident, Morgan continued to teach. In 1998, she was asked to become an astronaut. In a NASA interview before her flight, Morgan acknowledged that patience and perseverance are two traits that serve both teachers and astronauts. “Space exploration is all about open-ended, never-ending opportunities for our young people. That's what my motivation has been, to help keep the world of opportunities open for our kids,” she said. Morgan's out-of-this-world class was broadcast live on NASA television. Her husband Clay Morgan said he couldn't help but grin( 露着牙齿笑 ) as he watched her talk to students. “I'm just so proud of her and how she's going to do all this and do the work of an astronaut as well as a teacher,” he said. “She just kept telling me how incredible it was and I think it's much more than she expected.” One student asked Morgan how teaching compares to being an astronaut. “We explore, we discover and we share,” she said. “The great thing about being B. Welcome to Space Shop D. Show Your Talent for Science


a teacher is you get to do that with students, and the great thing about being an astronaut is you get to do it in space, and those are absolutely wonderful jobs.” 59. Where did Morgan give lessons to the students of the Discovery Science Center in Boise? A. At NASA's Kennedy Space Station. B. At an elementary school in Boise. C. In the Space Shuttle Challenger. D. In the Space Shuttle Endeavour. 60. It can be inferred that Morgan is A. the first teacher C. the third teacher in space. B. the second teacher D. the fourth teacher

61. In Morgan's opinion, what qualities should teachers and astronauts have? A. Patience and boldness. C. Carefulness and perseverance. B. Perseverance and patience. D. Patience and diligence.

62. What attitude did Barbara Morgan's husband feel when he watched his wife's out-of-this-world class? A. Surprised and angry. C. Happy and proud. D Why should mankind explore space? Why should money, time and effort be spent exploring and researching something with so few apparent benefits? Why should resources be spent on space rather than on conditions and people on Earth? These are questions that, understandably, are very often asked. Perhaps the best answer lies in our genetic makeup ( 基 因 构 成 ) as human beings. What drove our ancestors to move from the trees into the plains, and on into all possible areas and environments? The wider the spread of a species, the better its chance of survival. Perhaps the best reason for exploring space is this genetic tendency to expand wherever possible. Nearly every successful civilization has explored, because by doing so, any dangers in surrounding areas can be identified and prepared for. Without knowledge, we may be completely destroyed by the danger. With knowledge, we can lessen its effects. Exploration also allows minerals and other potential( 潜在的 ) resources to be found. Even if we have no immediate need of them, they will perhaps be useful B. Dissatisfied and worried. D. Terrified and anxious.


later. Resources may be more than physical possessions. Knowledge or techniques have been acquired through exploration. The techniques may have medical applications which can improve the length or quality of our lives. We have already benefited from other spin-offs including improvements in earthquake prediction, in satellites for weather forecasting and in communications systems. Even non-stick pans and mirrored sunglasses are by-products(副产品) of technological developments in the space. While many resources are spent on what seems a small return, the exploration of space allows creative, brave and intelligent members of our species to focus on what may serve to save us. While space may hold many wonders and explanations of how the universe was formed or how it works, it also holds dangers. The danger exists, but knowledge can help human beings to survive. Without the ability to reach out across space, the chance to save ourselves might not exist. While Earth is the only planet known to support life, surely the adaptive ability of humans would allow us to live on other planets. It is true that the lifestyle would be different, but human life and cultures have adapted in the past and surely could in the future. 63. Why does the author mention the questions in Paragraph 1? A. To express his doubts. B. To compare different ideas. C. To introduce points for discussion. D. To describe the conditions on Earth. 64. What is the reason for exploring space based on Paragraph 2? A. Humans are nature-born to do so. B. Humans have the tendency to fight. C. Humans may find new sources of food. D. Humans don't like to stay in the same place. 65. to The underlined . A. survival chances C. unexpected benefits B. potential resources D. physical possessions word “spin-offs” in Paragraph 4 probably refers

66. What makes it possible for humans to live on other planets? A. Our genetic makeup. B. Resources on the earth.


C. The adaptive ability of humans. D. By-products in space exploration. 67. Which of the statements can best summarize the passage? A. Space exploration has created many wonders. B. Space exploration provided the best value for money. C. Space exploration can benefit science and technology. D. Space exploration may help us avoid potential problems on Earth. 答案 一、适当形式填空(单句适当形式) 1. advanced 2. devotion 3. grasping 4. being defeated 二、单词拼写(根据中文提示拼写单词) 5. burst 6. decades 7. random 8. sorrow 9. relief 10. broad 11. sympathy 12. faith 13. similar 14. stable 15. patience 三、单项选择 16.
