  司馬談怒道︰“聰明一點啊,耶耶這次已經試探出來了,皇帝就不是一個肯吃虧的人。他雖然接受了董仲舒的那一套治理國家的想法,卻對‘天人感應’非常的反感。‘推古天變’與‘天人感應’只沾一點點的邊,皇帝都受不了,董仲舒總想著依靠天地之威來限制皇權豈不是緣木求魚?你現在最重要的就是求學,走路,觀天下,體察世間百態之後再動手著書,就能得心應手。你要記住,無論到了什麼境遇,一定要將‘推古天變’這個想法修補完整,耶耶覺得,這可能是我司馬氏一族名揚後世的唯一手段了。”   雲瑯喝了一口酒笑道︰“他的外甥因為與人爭論,別人處處忍讓,他外甥依舊不依不饒,結果,在撕打的過程中被對方給打死了。他的姐姐要求我們實驗的對象出手殺死對方,結果,我的實驗對象在了解了事情的經過之後,發現錯誤不在對方的身上,不但跟打死他外甥的人道歉,甚至還賠償了對方五千錢。我的實驗對象的姐姐听聞此事之後,就把他外甥的尸體丟在大街上,說那個死去的人是一只沒有舅舅的野狗。別人都以為我的實驗對象是無法接受這樣的侮辱的,結果,他親自去了大街上,背著已經發臭的外甥尸體,親自入殮,親自挖坑埋在野外。就此一件事,我的實驗對象已經樹立了自己公平的形象,在富貴鎮人人都找他來評判公平與否,听說啊,經過他評判的事情,還沒有出現一例不公平的。”日日撸   “這就是說,我還是被陛下給坑了?他看似大度,實際上卻在害我?”日日干   “無事獻殷勤非奸即盜!”司馬遷低聲對父親嘀咕了一句。   雲瑯咕噥完畢,就重新把腦袋塞毯子里,準備再睡一會,反正外面的大霧一時半會散不掉。日本人的天天日日   “哈,你被陛下用鞭子抽了,呀呀呀,真是一個不听話的小子,居然惹陛下生氣了,我一定要代替陛下教訓你。”

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.
