還有約茨西和騎兵上尉施泰因許貝伯爵。 不許再想什麼壞事!” 我已經把門打開一半,身後又飄來一陣笑聲,充滿孩子氣,而且非常詭人人看 出點主意。” 巴林凱的臉色一下子嚴肅起來。臉繃緊了。他把煙扔掉。人人操 “瞧瞧——廁身于先知當中的掃羅?!看來您已經徹頭徹尾卷到這件事情 里去了——連‘心理力量’這句話您也記住了!再加上您的臨床診斷——我 自己都不知道,竟然不聲不響地培養出來一個助手和顧問!——話說回來,” 他若有所思地用他那煩躁的手輕輕地搔了一下頭皮——“您剛才說出來的這 一切,其實並不愚蠢——對不起,我的意思當然是指︰醫學意義上的愚蠢。 奇怪,的確很奇怪——我收到艾迪特的那封極度興奮的信,我一時問我自己, 既然您已經勸她相信現在她的病情將以千里馬的速度飛快痊愈,那麼她的這 種激情滿懷的態度是否可以充分利用??您的想法的確不壞啊,同行先生! 其實這事要安排起來也是輕而易舉——我把她送到安加丁?去,我有個朋友在 那里當醫生,我們讓她喜孜孜地滿心相信,她在進行一種新的治療方法,而 實際上依然是老一套。乍一上來,也許會取得驚人的效果,我們將收到一捆 捆熱情洋溢、感激涕零的來信。滿腔幻想、變換空氣、環境變化、加強電流, “不過,親愛的艾迫特小姐——請您別在我身上尋找什麼神秘的動機。 歸根結底,您也相當了解我了,您不會不知道,我這人很少考慮自己的言行。 我向您發誓,我還從來沒有想到過要自我反省一下,為什麼我去看這家,去 看那家,為什麼我喜歡這些人,不喜歡那些人。我以入格擔保——我的確沒 法給您更聰明或者更愚蠢的回答,只能跟您說,我之所以老到府上來看您們, 就是因為我喜歡到府上來,因為我覺得在府上比在任何地方都舒服一百倍。 我想,您們大概過于按照喜歌劇所描寫的樣子來想象我們騎兵的生活方式, 總是風度翩翩,總是快快活活,好像一年到頭都在過節似的。然而,到里頭 去一看,其實並不是那麼富麗堂皇,即便是備受贊揚的伙伴之間的集體精神 有時候也相當靠不住。不論在哪兒,只要十幾個人套在一起拉車,總有一個 拉得比別人起勁,要是輪到升遷晉級,就很容易得罪徘在前頭的那個人。每 說一句話都得小心謹慎。你心里永遠沒有把握,不知自己是否引起了上級軍 官的不快;空氣里不知什麼地方總醞釀著一場暴風雨。在部隊服役也是一種 徭役,服役的人談不上獨立。再說,兵營和酒館也永遠不是什麼正經的家庭 生活。在那里誰也不需要誰,誰的事別人也不在乎。不錯,不錯,有時候伙 伴之間關系也挺熱乎,但是最終的安全感是永遠不能真正得到的。相反,如 果我到你們這兒來,我把佩刀解下,同時也把各式各樣的顧慮困擾都擱置一 邊,然後我和你們心情舒暢地閑聊起來,那麼??”人人摸 即便是在轉瞬即逝的白日夢里,我也從來沒有想到過,居然也會有女子 這樣毫無節制地愛我。伙伴們神氣活現地吹噓,這個女人或者那個女人如何 “窮追”他們的時候,我常常在座。听到他們公開地大講這種女人硬湊上來 的故事,我甚至也跟著大家縱聲大笑;因為當時我還沒有體會到,任何形式 的愛情,哪怕是最最可笑、最最荒唐的形式也是一個人的命運。如果對此漠 然置之,也會損害人家的愛情而犯下罪過。然而耳朵听來、書里看來的一切 只能輕飄無力地從一個人身邊一掠而過。人的心靈只能通過親身經歷才能懂 得感情的本質。我首先得親自體驗一下一個陌生女人荒誕無稽的愛情給我造 成的良心上的沉重負擔,才能對這個和那個產生同情,同情這個,是因為他 拼命把自己的身心奉獻給別人;同情那個,是因為他拼命抵御別人這種過分 強烈的感情。可是偏偏是我在這兒命中注定了要承擔責任,而且這責任還大 到難以想象的地步!因為使一個女人在戀愛中失望,這本身已經是件殘忍的 事,簡直可說是心靈的粗暴行為,如今要我對這烈性的孩子說“不行”、“我 不願意”,那更不知道要可怕多少倍!我不得不去傷害一個生病的姑娘,她 本來已經受到人生痛苦的創傷,我還要把更深的傷痛加在她身上。一個內心 搖搖晃晃、行動不穩的姑娘,我還要把她最後一根拐仗——她賴以支撐著站 穩身子的希望——奪去。我知道,我單單說,只有同情心,就已經使這姑娘 深受震動,如果我再逃避她的愛情,一定會使她大受損傷,說不走會把她徹 底毀掉。我從一開頭就清楚意識到,如果我不能接受她的愛,甚至也不假裝 回答她的愛情,那我將違背自己的意願,犯下可怕的大罪。

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.
