For nearly a century before there was such a thing as a space program, a view of space was possible. People could see detailed views of the Moon, explore Mars, and study the beauty of Saturn's rings. All of this was made possible by a small group of artist-astronomers (one who studies the science of the sun, the moon and the planets) who made a career of illustrating how other worlds in space might look.

Lucien Rudaux, a French artist, was the first to combine his artistic talents with his knowledge of astronomy. His paintings show a mixture of skilled observations, intelligent imagination, and careful attention to detail. As a result, many of this works have come surprisingly close to actual condition on distant planets. His painting of Mars included moonlike craters that were first photographed by the Mariner 4 Probe in 1965. His 1930 painting of a dust storm looks remarkably like a photograph of a storm taken by Orbiter 2 in 1976.

The Internet dates back to 1969, when the U.S. Department of Defense decided to build an experimental network to make sure computer-based command in the event of a nuclear attack. As the time went by, public and commercial networks in North America and Europe jointed the system, and the expanding giant born.

Until ten years ago, the internet was actually the private fields of scientists and university students. During recent years, curious private citizens and businesses are crowding onto the internet at a speed that is doubling its size every year.

Now computer networks have spread to form a giant global web. Some 100 million people from over 140 countries around the world have logged on to the internet, a system linking tens of thousands of networks filled with information, discussion and entertainment. Millions of web pages contained in a great number of sites are commonly used to exhibit a mixture of text, graphics, sounds and video clips, as well as links to other web pages.

On a typical day, data, as much as several million 250-page books, will pour through the internet. Stored in the system are huge amounts of scholarly and scientific data, government documents and public records, airline timetables, weather reports, the full text of the Bible, and thousands of newspapers and magazines from around the world.

The internet user can reach about 14,000 discussion forums (known as news groups) covering everything from medicine to sports, Chinese culture of French wines. By creating communities of people sharing common internets, computer networks are making their influence felt in schools, in the business world, in politics and government.

What's ahead? More convenience. In the next century, many commercial activities that require you to queue up in front of service counters, like paying bills or shopping, will be completed electronically through the information superhighway. You can do it at home and a any time. In the meantime, the rapid developing computer networks, by helping millions if users to work, learn and have fun online, are providing preview of the electronic future.

78.Who first created the networks that later developed into the internet?

Increasingly, over the past ten years, people-especially young people-have become aware of the need to change their eating habits, because much of the food they eat, particularly processed food, is not good for the health. Consequently, there has been a growing interest in natural foods: foods which do not contain chemical additives and which have not been affected by chemical fertilizers widely used in farming today.

Natural foods, for example, are vegetables, fruit and grain which have been grown in soil that is rich in organic matter. In simple terms, this means that the soil has been nourished by unused vegetable matter, which provides it with essential vitamins and minerals. This in itself is a natural process compared with the use of chemicals and fertilizers, the main purpose of which is to increase the amount-but not the quality-of foods frown in commercial farming areas.

Natural foods also include animals which have been allowed to feed and move freely in healthy pastures. Compare this with what happens in the mass production of poultry: there are battery farms, for example, where thousands of chickens live crowded together in on building and are fed on food which is little than rubbish. Chickens kept in this way are not only tasteless as food; they also produce eggs which lack important vitamins.

There are other aspects of healthy eating which are now receiving increasing attention from experts in diet. Take, for example, the question of sugar. This is actually a nonessential food! Although a natural alternative, such as honey, can be used to sweeten food if this is necessary, we can in fact do without it. It is not that sugar is harmful in itself. But it does seem to be additive: the quantity we use has grown steadily over the last two centuries and in Britain today each person consumes an average of 200 pounds a year! Yet all it does is provide us with energy, in the form of calories. There are no vitamins in it, no minerals-and no fibre.

It is significant that nowadays fibre is considered to be an important part of a healthy diet. In white bread, for example, the fibre has been removed. But it is present in unrefined flour and of course in vegetables. It is interesting to note that in countries where the national diet contains large quantities of unrefined flour and vegetables, certain diseases are comparatively rare. Hence the emphasis placed on the eating of wholemeal and more vegetables by modern experts on "healthy eating".

82.People have become more interested in natural foods because _____.
A. they want a change of diet
B. they want to eat food that is more tasty
C. they no longer like processed foods
D. they want to be fashionable
83.Soil that is rich in organic matter_____.
A. has had nothing added to it
B. already contains vitamins and minerals
C. contains unused vegetable matter
D. has had chemicals and fertilizers added to it.
84.Battery chickens cannot be called "natural food" because _____.
A. they all live together
B. they are tasteless
C. their eggs have no vitamins
D. they are not allowed to move about and eat freely
85.Which of the following is considered good for health eating?
A. Unrefined flour and vegetables.
B. White bread and honey.
C. Canned beans and fruits.
D. Mass-produced chickens and eggs.
