提问时间:2006-02-15 21:06The contention that the spirit of adventure no longer has any scope for its enterprise seems, at first glance, depressingly true. The highest mountains have been scaled; the deepest sea plumbed. Maps today no longer contain huge blanks marked 'Unknown Territory', nor do they make random guesses at the shapes of distant land-masses. All major journeys of exploration to determine the true shape and nature of the globe were made in the past. It was left to us to fill in the details with expeditions which once would have been considered impossible. The gaps have been filled. What next?
The obvious answer, of course, is that man is now looking upwards into space. Discoveries are being made at such a tremendous rate that even writers of science-fiction are finding it difficult to keep abreast with them and have to tax their imaginations to invent bigger and better spacecraft. Satellites sending signals that swing round our globe have become commonplace. Astronauts have successfully landed on the moon and its entire surface has been photographed. The information that satellites may provide fuelling stations for manned rockets no longer strikes us preposterous. If, twenty years ago, a scientist had urged that we send messages into outer space in the hope of receiving an answer, or that radio-telescopes should‘listen in' to the skies possible signals from other worlds, he would have been as either irresponsible or mad. Now, anything seems feasible.
From dreams like these, we return to earth with a bump. Trips into space are all very well, but they are not for us: we must content ourselves with our own, much-traveled world. The ear itself is the training-ground for adventurous spirits. For ‘adventure' need not mean the seeking out of something new. A person can be called adventurous when he finds our something for himself; and it does not matter how many times the discovery has been made before. No one would say that men who set out now to cross the forbidding Antarctic are less enterprising than their predecessors who tried to do the same thing. The little boy who climbs the small hill that overlooks his town, or even he who tries to climb it and fails, has precisely the same spirit that led Hillary to climb Everest. For the bold spirit and inquiring mind, there are inexhaustible possibilities. So long as there are people willing to rediscover places that are well-known, there will be those who will, one day, set foot to remote and trackless shores.

初看起来,那种讲冒险精神(探险)实际上失去了其真实意义的论点是有很多道理的。
那些高山已经被人类征服,最深的海洋也被人类测量过了。今天的地图上再也没有
那种标识着‘未知地域’的大面积区域,人们也不用猜测那远处地域的形状。那些
为决定地球的真实形状及其自然条件的主要探险行动已成为过去。留给我们的工作
是通过勘察探险填补那些过去不可能得到的那些细节。那些未知领域已经被填补了。
那么接下来应该是什么呢?
当然答案是明确的。人们已经开始研究宇宙了。诸多的新发现以惊人的速度接续出现,
致使那些科幻作家都认为不能跟上这些新发现。他们只好运用他们的想象力来制造
更大更好的宇宙飞船了。地球周围那些发送信号的卫星已经不是什么新鲜事了。宇
航员已经成功在月球着陆,人们已经把月球的外表照了像。
那些类似将人造卫星作为载人飞船的空间加油站的讲法也不再被认为是不可行的了。
如果二十年前,有一个科学家讲我们应该向外星球发送信号,并有希望得到回答,
或使用射电望远镜接收那些其他星球发送的可能太空信号时,人们会认为他不是不
负责任就是个疯子。但是现在什么都是可能的了.
虽然有着那些太空幻想,我们回到地球时确遇到坎坷。到地球外去旅行当然是好事,
但是那不是你我能做的。我们必须把自己与我们生存的地球维系在一起。耳朵本身
就是探险精神的培训基地。‘探险’并不意味着去寻找那些新东西。每个人都可以
进行探险,去寻找那些他自己的东西。而这发现已经被探究过多少次实际上并不是
重要的。当一个人现在准备穿越那冰封的南极时,没有人会说他们比那些穿越南极
的先驱缺少了些冒险精神。当一个男孩爬上一个小山,远望自己生活的小镇时,即
使他努力尝试了,但是没成功登上那个小山时,他也是与攀登喜马拉雅山的希拉瑞
具有类似的探险精神。对於胸怀远大,具有求知欲的人来讲,(世界上)有着无尽的
可能性。只要有人愿意去重新发现那些已经被人们熟知的领域,就会有人在某天会
发现一块未知的新天地。
