What would life be like aboard(在船上) a spaceship? Perhaps the strangest and most interesting thing about living in space is that people are weightless because there is no gravity(重力)．This condition, which is called zero gravity, makes it possible for astronauts to fly through the spaceship simply by pushing off from a wall or a chair. It's almost like swimming underwater, except that there is no up or down. Imagine, then, taking a shower when water moves in the air instead of running down on you. Tie yourself to a wall so that you don't fly away while taking a sleep. You couldn't brush your teeth in the usual way. The following may help you understand how these and other everyday activities can be difficult tasks for people who travel in space.
Taking a shower aboard a spaceship isn't like taking one at home．On a spaceship, you must store up water. And preparing the equipment for showers takes a long time. is also not a simple activity. On Russian spaceships, an astronaut gets in an elastic(弹性的) cylinder(汽缸) with caps at both ends. Rubber slippers, fixed to the floor, keep the astronaut from flying upward．The astronaut puts a soft pipe into his or her mouth in order to breathe．Then the astronaut presses his or her nose to keep water out, because water doesn't drop downward in space. When the water is turned on, it comes out of holes at the top and bottom of the 4
cylinder．Astronauts use a soap-filled cloth to wash and then a plain cloth to clean．
? Teeth cleaning
Astronauts use electric toothbrushes. They are encouraged to massage their gums(按摩牙龈) with a special cloth. A special chewing gum, used after every meal, also helps them keep their teeth clean.
When you're really tired, it feels wonderful to lie down on a bed and sleep. In space, however, there is no “down”. An astronaut sleeps in a standing position in a sleeping bag fixed to the wall of a sleeping place．In the space station, elastic give the feeling of lying flatly on a bed. These bands press the sleeper back in the same way that gravity presses down.
( )1. Why do the everyday activities become difficult in space?
A. Because astronauts can fly away. B. Because people are weightless.
C. Because there is no up and down. D. Because water moves in the air.
( )2. What does the underlined word “it” refer to in the second paragraph?
A. Keeping the water out. B. Storing up water in space. C. Fixing cylinder to the floor. D. Preparing shower equipment.
( )3. What does the underlined word “bands” mean in the last paragraph?
A. Flat things fixing sleepers. B. Series of space numbers.
C. Narrow areas with light. D. Groups of musicians.
( )4. What might be the best title for the passage?
A. Zero Gravity B. Strange Space
“When words fail, music speaks.” For every emotion we know, there
seems to be a song that can express the feelings that go along with it. There
are songs about sadness, joy, fear, anger and love. There are even songs
without words, and even these tunes can have a powerful influence on a
Some may say music is the mixture of a tune, notes, rhythms (节奏), and maybe even words. But to me, I find that music is much more than that. Music lives and breathes everywhere—in the soft whisper of a summer wind, in the rolling of waves in an ocean, or even in the beating of a baby’s heart. Music is the rhythmic beating of life, and it gives life to everything.
People often go through life, taking no notice of the sweet sounds of music around them. They walk through busy streets and pass people by without looking at anyone in the eye. People forget that simply saying “hello” to another person can be music. I have found, however, that by
5 C. Brave Spacemen D. Living in Space
giving a small part of myself to others each day, I can be an instrument of love. I, too, can create music. Making time out of my day is a hard task to achieve, for I become busier and busier each day. But what I get from helping another person is endless, especially when I see how much I can add to another person’s happiness. This is a great and powerful gift that we have as human beings. We have the ability to take care of other people’s joy. By loving and caring for others, we can truly be instruments of love for other people.
Music is more than words put into a tune. It’s the flow of goodness and life that can be found in every situation, good or bad. It’s a helping hand when someone falls down. It’s a loving hug after not seeing each other for years. It’s a tear that falls down the cheek of a baby. That’s the thing about music—it is different for everyone. Music is there to help us when things are too great to put into words. Music will forever express emotions of love and life. 1. Paragraph 2 is mainly about ______.
A. what music is
B. how music influences us D. why music influences us
B. listen to the music around them D. create music by showing kindness C. where music is 2. From Paragraph 3, we know that people are often too busy to ______. A. enjoy the happiness they have C. notice the happiness everywhere

Music is part of every culture on Earth. Many people feel that music makes life worth living. We can make music ourselves if we play an instrument(乐器) or sing. We can hear music on CDs or tape, on radio or television and even on the Internet. Music gives us pleasure. It can cheer us up, or excite us.
Music can make us feel happy, sad, excited or calm—all kinds of feelings. But what is it? Some people describe it as an artful form of sounds across time. These sounds might be loud or soft, high or low, quick and short, or slow and long. The sounds need to keep on for some time in some kinds of forms to become music.
Music, like language, is a special human form of communication. Also like language, there are many different kinds. In North America, people listen to jazz, rock, classical, folk, country, and many other kinds of music. Each kind of music has its own rules and “speaks” to us in its own way.
What we think of music depends on where we live. What Americans are used to listening 7
to might sound strange to someone from another culture. It might not even sound like music. And also you can find that every country has its own typical instruments to show their traditional music.
Today, modern communications(通讯系统) make it possible for us to listen to music from all over the world. In this way music from one part of the world could influence(影响) music from another part.
Music goes along with many of our activities. We dance to music. We sing songs at school. Many of us exercise to music. We hear music in cars and stores. Music comes with many important moments.
Music pleases us. We listen to slow music, spiritual music, pop music, rock music, and opera. We have favorite performers. We hear music as the background in movies. Perhaps we go to the theater to see a musical movie—play with music, singing, and often with dancing.
Music is part of our lives.
1. Can we hear music on the Internet?
2. What kinds of feelings can music give us?
3. Why can music all over the world influence each other today?
4. What are the similarities(相似点) between music and language?
5. What is the passage mainly about?
