    资源名称:高中英语必修5 Unit 3 Life in the future 听力 Reading Task
    资源版本:普通高中课程标准实验教科书

          Not many people have the chance of being a pioneer and experiencing a real-life adventure. But those who will go to live in this new undersea city will be able to do just that! There will be no suffering here. In fact it is so comfortable that it has been described as "a silk adventure". Among its many advantages we include: easy contact (接触) with the land surface, more personal space, complete personal security and no housework worries.

          There has been a problem in the past when companies tried to design undersea cities. The sea bottom is deep and this makes it difficult to contact the surface. This difficulty has been solved by shuttle-submarines (潜水艇), which will always be ready to take people to the surface. They will be equipped with a special small, computerized machine. All the family will be transported quickly and safely to their destination.

          Personal space is important for healthy living. But getting enough of it has been a problem ever since the population grew too large for the available land. This, too, was an important principle behind the design of Saturation City. Everyone will get twice as much personal space as in flats on land. You will be able to explore the sea-floor and float among the fish and other sea animals, learn about the undersea world and enjoy picnics on the coral reefs.

          Our organization will look after the security of all the families in Saturation City. We will check everybody who enters or leaves the city. There will also be computers throughout the city which will be able to "sense" if an object is removed from any house without permission. Only the robot cleaner will be able to move objects. This new piece of equipment will certainly make your life more enjoyable.

          Of course there will be no household worries in Saturation City. Each new well-furnished house comes with its own robot for family use only. Your details will be fed into its computer hard-drive so that it will only answer your family's commands. So a spotless house is yours as soon as you move in.

          We hope that this information is enough for you to decide to see our super top-of-the-range apartments and houses. They all come with the special items mentioned above. We hope to see you at one of our many inspection visits.
