However, b y 21 00, spacesh ip can tra vel a t half th e sp eed o f ligh t. It might tak e us two p r three days to get to Mars. Secondl y, hu mans need food, wa te r and air to live.

Each stud ent will also have their own o nlin e teacher called ―e -teache r‖. However, in so me wa ys, life on Ma rs may no t be better than th at on the earth today. Food will no t b e th e sa me, me als will probab ly be in th e form of p ills and will no t as delic ious as the y are toda y. What‘s mo re, sp ace travel will make man y people feel ill. The spa ceship will tra vel fast, but the journe y to Mars will prob ably be very unco mfortab le. ( ) 1. Accord ing to th e tex t, b y th e yea r 2100 , so me of us will possibly live .

It‘s a frien dly way that p eople in the U.S.A greet each o ther. But ― How are you? ‖ is also a very unusual question. It‘s a question that often doesn ‘t need an answe r. The person who asks ― How are you ‖ hopes to hear the answer “ Fine ‖, e ven if the pe rson ‘s friend isn ‘t fine. The reason is that ―How are you? ‖ isn‘t really a question and ― Fine‖ isn ‘t reall y an answer. They are simply other ways of sa y ing ―He llo ‖ or ―Hi‖. Sometimes, peop le a lso don ‘t sa y exactly what they mean. Fo r examp le, when so meone asks ―Do you agre e? ‖, the o ther person migh t th ink, ―No, I d isag ree. I thin k you‘re wrong.‖ But it isn‘t ve ry polite to disagree so stron gly, so the oth er person migh t sa y ― I‘m not sure . ‖ It‘s a n icer way to say that you do n‘t ag ree with so meone.
