Paper Plane to Be Dropped from Space

For most people, it is enough to see their paper planes fly for a few feet. The Japanese, however, want to make a paper plane fly for 240 miles from space.

This crazy paper plane plan was brought up by the leader of Japan Origami Plane Association(日本折纸飞机协会) ,
Mr. Takuo. In 1999, Mr. Takuo asked Mr. Suzuki, a designer, if he could help design a 3-metre plane for a TV program. The plane flew successfully from the top of a mountain. Then Mr. Takuo asked Mr. Suzuki if he would help send a paper plane from space. They made plans to drop a paper plane from the International Space Station down to the Earth. The idea is to develop a kind of modern plane that can study the atmosphere.

An 8-inch-long paper plane has been made and treated with a chemical ( 化学药品) so that it can survive the temperature of 200℃ as it enters the Earth's atmosphere again. Another 3-inch-long paper plane has been tested at the temperature of up to 300℃. The paper plane will probably start its trip during a space walk. It will continue at the same speed as the space station, but its orbit(轨道) will change slowly. Maybe it will survive the drop, but the researchers don't know where it will land, so they have written a message in several languages, saying, "This plane flew from the
International Space Station. Please return the plane to Japan Origami Plane Association. "

If the paper plane successfully flies from space, some new design ideas can be explored. It seems to be a crazy idea, but who can say that it isn't a creative one?
(        )48. What can we learn about the paper plane in the research?

A. It can survive high temperatures.         B. It can send messages from space.

C.  It can land where people want it to.         D. It can study the atmosphere.
(         )49. Why was the message written in several languages on the paper plane?

A.  Because it is an international project.

B.  Because it belongs to several countries.

C Because it may land somewhere outside Japan.

D.  Because it is popular with people in different countries.

(         )50. Why do the Japanese do the research on the paper plane?

A.  To set up a world record of the biggest paper plane.

B.  To provide useful ideas for making a kind of modern plane.
C To make the life in the space station more colorful.

D. To make Japan Origami Plane Association well known in the world.

C

The teacher stood before his class of 30 students and was about to hand out the final exam papers. "I know how hard you have all worked to prepare for this test,“he said. "Arid because I know you are all able to understand this material, I am ready to offer a B to anyone who would prefer not to take the test. "

A number of students jumped up to thank the teacher and left the classroom. The teacher looked at the remaining( 余下的 ) students and said," Does anyone else want to get a B? This is your last chance. " Two more students decided to go. Seven students stayed. The teacher then handed out the papers. There were only three sentences which were typed on the paper: Congratulations! You have received an A in this class. Keep believing in yourself.

I never had a teacher who gave a test like that, but I think that it is a test that any teacher could and should give. Students who do not have confidence in what they have learned are B students at most.

The same is true for students in real life. The A students are those who believe in what they are doing because they have learned from both successes and failures. They have learned life's lessons, whether from formal education or from evenis in their lives, and have become better people. Scientists say that by the age of eight, 80% of what we believe about ourselves has already been formed. You are a big kid now, and you realize that you have some limits( 局限). However, there is nothing you can't do or leant to be. Sir Edmund Hillary, the first person to reach the top of Mount Qomolangma(珠穆朗玛峰) said, "We do not conquer the mountain, but ourselves. "
(         )51. Why did some students leave the classroom?

A.  Because they were happy with the mark the teacher would give them.

B.  Because they were allowed to take another easier exam later on.

C.  Because they knew the teacher didn't like them to take the test.

D.  Because they thought the exam was too easy to be worth a try.
(         )52. Why did the teacher give the remaining students an A?

A.  Because they answered all the questions in the exam correctly.

B.  Because they had been promised an A by the teacher before.
C  Because they were confident in what they had learned.

D. Because they had been working hard for each exam.
(        )53. What does the underlined word "conquer" mean in the passage?

A.发现    B.控制    C.探索  D.征服

 (         )54. What is the writer's purpose of writing the passage?

A.  He wants us to know what our limits are.

B.  He wants us to learn to believe in ourselves.

C.  He wants us to receive formal education.

D.  He wants us to learn from B students.
