Flying has always been a dream of human beings. People have tired in every possible way to simulate what birds do so naturally. Finally, a century ago, the Wright brothers successfully accomplished the first powered flight. Although it only lasted 12 seconds, it proved that flight was possible. Success had not come easily. It was achieved after years of hard work, years of testing different ideas, and years of frustration. After they finally did fly, Orville and Wilber Wright spent the rest of their lives fighting to establish their patent. They died without knowing whether the world would ever recognize their contribution.
Aviation technology boomed in the ensuing years. Advanced materials coupled with more powerful engines made larger, lighter and faster aircraft possible. Hundreds of passengers can now fly across the Pacific non-stop in a single jet like the Boeing 747, which weighs over 400 tons. Aviation is now the most important means of transportation for both passengers and freight. As the saying goes, "The sky is the limit." But judging from what has happened in the last one hundred years, there may be no limits to what we can do in it.

The Spirit of Spain 熱情洋溢西班牙
Spain looks pretty small on a world map, but this country has produced an extraordinary culture.
All over the world, people have no problem recognizing the music, art, dance, or food that comes from Spain. Spanish culture is unmistakable.
When a person thinks of Spain, the first thing that comes to mind might be flamenco dancing. Passionate and lively, usually performed to the accompaniment of fast guitars, flamenco dancing originated in southern Spain, and it has strong gypsy roots.
Bullfighting is another of Spain's most famous attractions, and it is not just for tourists; bullfighting is enormously popular with the Spanish themselves. Thrilling and artistic, a bullfight is a match between a toreador, or bullfighter, and a bull. Bullfighting is one of Spain's long-standing traditions that might seem quite different from the ways of the modern world.
Spain is known as a country of romance, and for good reason. The history of Spain had its starting point not in a war over territory or the discovery of a new continent, but in a marriage. In 1469, Queen Isabella of the Kingdom of Castile married King Ferdinand of the Kingdom of Aragon, joining two of the most powerful Christian kingdoms in what is known as the unification of Spain. This unification began the period of Spanish history that saw three centuries of global exploration, trade, and conquest, carrying the Spanish language and culture all over the world.
No longer one of the world's strongest empires, Spain's political power has declined over the years, but its culture is as inspiring and well known now as ever. The spirit of Spain continues to inspire the world.
