人类太空新城:国际空间站的英语介绍文章阅读。

  The ISS: a flying city in the sky

  If you watch the sky about an hour after the sun goes down, you may see some "moving stars". But they're not really stars. They're satellites. And the biggest of all is the International Space Station.

  From May until July this year was the best season to watch the ISS flying over the Earth. And people can see it with just their eyes. The ISS is the biggest satellite because scientists want to live on it. They think that the best way to learn more about space is to live there.

  When the space station is finished, it will be like a city in space. People will stay and study there with many of the things they have at home. Laboratories, living rooms and power stations are being built. The ISS is the most ambitious (雄心勃勃的) and expensive space programme ever. Billions of dollars are being spent on it every year.

  Scientists hope that the ISS will be a stepping stone (跳板) for future space exploration (探索). "The ISS will help us better understand the human body, explore space and study the Earth. It can help us make life on Earth better," said Kathryn Clark, an ISS scientist.

  Sixteen countries are part of the programme: the US, Russia, Canada, Japan, Brazil and 11 European countries. China is not an ISS country, but it has helped with some of the experiments. In 2003, China sent some rice up to the ISS to find out what space would do to it.

  The ISS is not finished yet. More than 100 parts must still be put on. Scientists hope it will be finished by 2006.

  After it's finished, more than 90 percent of the world's population will be able to see the Space Station. So keep looking up, and maybe you'll see it get bigger.
