At the moment, it may be difficult to imagine, but many people believe that, by the year 2100, we will live on the planet Mars. Our own planet, Earth, is becoming more and more crowded and polluted. Luckily, we can start again and build a better world on Mars. Here is what life could be like.
Transport should be much better. At present, our spaceships are too slow to carry large numbers of people to Mars—it takes months. However, by 2100, spaceship can travel at half the speed of light. It might take us two or three days to get to Mars!
Mars pulls us much less than the Earth does. This will be dangerous because we could easily jump too high and fly slowly away into space. To prevent this, humans on Mars have to wear special shoes to make themselves heavier.
There will probably be no school on Mars. Every student will have a computer at home which is connected to the Internet. They can study, do their homework and take exams in online schools. Each student will also have their own online teacher called “e-teacher”.
However, in some ways, life on Mars may not be better than that on the earth today. Food will not be the same—meals will probably be in the form of pills and will not be as delicious as they are today. Also, space travel will make many people feel ill. The spaceship will travel fast but the journey to Mars will probably be very uncomfortable.
32 ． According to the text, by the year 2100, some of us will possibly live ________.
A ． on Mars B ． on the moon C ． under the sea D ． in the sun
33 ． So far, how long will it take us from the earth to Mars by spaceship?
A ． Two or three days. B ． A few months. C ． A few days. D ． A few years.
34 ． In the future, the students on Mars ________.
A ． will study mainly through the Internet B ． will study mainly in a classroom
C ． will meet each other face to face every day D ． needn’t study at all
35 ． According to the text, which of the following is NOT true?
A ． Transport will be much better and faster.
B ． Space travel to Mars will probably be very uncomfortable.
C ． On Mars, we can jump higher than on the earth.
D ． Food will be much tastier.
