  Passage Four

  In 1902, Georges Mé s made and released a movie called A Trip to the Moon. In this movie, the spaceship was a small capsule, shaped like a bullet, that was loaded into a giant cannon and aimed at the moon.

  This movie was based on a book that came out many years earlier by an author named Jules Verne. One of the fans of the book was a Russian man, Konstantin Tsiolkovsky. The book made him think. Could one really shoot people out of a cannon and have them get safely to the moon? He decided one couldn’t, but it got him thinking of other ways one could get people to the moon. He spent his life considering this problem and came up with many solutions.

  Some of Tsiolkovsky’s solutions gave scientists in America and Russia ideas when they began to think about space travel. They also thought about airplanes they

  and other people had made, and even big bombs that could fly themselves very long distances.

  Many scientists spent years working together to solve the problem. They drew and discussed different designs until they agreed on the ones that were the best. Then, they built small models of those designs, and tested them until they felt ready to build even bigger models. They made full-scale rockets, which they launched without any people inside, to test for safety. Often the rockets weren’t safe, and they exploded right there on the launch pad, or shot off in crazy directions like a balloon that you blow up and release without tying it first. After many, many tests, they started to send small animals into space. Only after a long time did they ever put a person inside a rocket and shoot him into space.

  Even after they began sending people into space, scientists were still trying to improve the shape of the rockets. The design changed many times, and eventually ended up looking like a half-rocket and half-airplane. The machine called space shuttle was used for many years. Now, the government lets private companies try their own designs for spaceships, and they have come up with many different, crazy-looking machines.

  在现如今快节奏的生活中,很难找到一片宁静。片刻的宁静似乎是罕见且奇妙的。对我来说,最珍贵的时刻发生在一艘船上。正如传说中的水手维托 · 杜马曾说过, “在海上,你才是真正的自己。”在甲板上,享受着令人惊叹的景色,海风吹走了每日的烦恼。他的观点值得欣赏。

  飞行是一种痛苦。从喧嚣的机场到空间狭隘的机舱,商业航空并没有什么能吸引我去冒险—或让我感到舒适。然而,喜欢乘船出行并不只是因为对飞行的恐惧。不论我是在短途的摆渡船上还是在海上航游,海洋给我一种真正的旅行,从船只离港到航向开阔的海域,这种航行令人印象深刻。约翰 · 肯尼迪说:“我们与海洋是一体的。”当我的船驶向一个令人兴奋地新目的地时,我感到了一种亲切感。


  斯帕盖蒂旅行博客的创始人汤姆 · 布里特认为,在飞机上很难看清地面,但在船上,看着越来越近的陆地是多少兴奋的一件事。

  对于旅行编辑凯西 · 温斯顿来说,这是一种冒险,即使在从 A 到 B 极为简单的旅行中,宽广的海域似乎能让你去探索新的领域。而在船上的这种浪漫,你在飞机上或高速公路上是无法感受到的。温斯顿也很重视海上航行带来的友好家庭生活。她说:“在水上,尤其是和孩子在一起,感觉特别放松。”
