  王溫舒的馬車就在廷尉府外邊,雲瑯等人出來的時候,他沒有下馬車,而是掀開馬車簾子朝雲瑯抱拳施禮。   瞅著老虎劇烈的喘息著叼來一只野雞放在腳下,雲瑯沒有半點埋怨老虎的意思。第四色   阿嬌不屑的道︰“小時候扮夫妻,你一定是夫,扮君臣,你一定是君,扮官兵跟盜賊,你一定是官兵,哪怕是吃東西你也總是要吃第一口……你我夫妻這麼些年,您覺得我會不知道您的脾性?還是常山王的時候,您就霸道絕倫,當了太子之後您就快天下獨尊了,要不是被竇太後壓制了您,您會開闢上林苑?反正啊,就妾身所知,只要有人踩在您的頭上,您從腳底板起就不舒服,且不論這人是誰。這里本來安置的就是丹鳳燈,如果是凰,周圍就該是百鳥,而不是什麼百獸。”夜必撸   霍光笑道︰“家師年紀輕輕就有大漢四豪杰之稱,豈能是空穴來風。金兄日後應當常來雲氏,且不說雲氏藏書乃是天下之冠,若能得我恩師指點一二,也將受用不盡。今日且不說別的,先讓金兄見識一下我大漢美食,吃過之後,光不虞金兄不來雲氏……哈哈哈。”   阿嬌驚訝的道︰“就這?”俺去色   李敢道︰“跟我上次見到的東西相比如何?”

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.
