  Travel through time

  It was a fanatical fantasy, but Dr. Hathaway was determined to find fame by being the first to travel through time. Working deep in the research facilities of his university, Hathaway was an expert at using his faculty status to get research money from faithful supporters. They would do anything to facilitate his success, even though they knew that Hathaway might be fallible. The money they gave Hathaway was fantastic, and he was sure he was making progress.

  When Hathaway showed up to a meeting in fancy clothing from another era, his peers thought he was faking success. Hathaway faltered in his description of what he had experienced, however, and fainted.No one had factored in the possibility that he might have succeeded, but they took care of him until he could give them more factual information.

  Those familiar with Hathaway were fairer, however, and when Hathaway awoke to say that he had done it, they erupted with loud fanfare. Their faith in Hathaway was confirmed and his fame spread instantly.

  But Hathaway was not prepared to show how he had traveled through time. He said that there was a large fallacy in his understanding of time travel that he still had to work out. After several weeks had passed and Hathaway was no longer to be found, his followers burst into the research facility. They found Hathaway lying on the ground and turned him around. They jumped back when they saw his face; he was suddenly an old man.

  "I can't fix the problem.''' He said. "Regardless of where you travel in time, you continue to age. I just spent thirty years in the future and still was not able to solve the problem." With that he uttered his last breath, never to tell anyone how he had traveled through time.


  读故事单词雅思词汇-穿越时间的旅行

  虽然那是个狂热的幻想,但哈撒韦博士却决意要做穿越时间旅行第一人并藉此出名。他利用大学的研究设备进行深入研究,还特别善于利用自己的教员身份向忠实的支持者们募集研究资金。那些支持者知道他难免出错,但只要有助于他的成功,他们在所不惜。这些人给哈撒韦提供的钱极多,哈撒韦也相信自己在取得进步。

  当哈撒韦穿着另一个时代的花哨衣服参加一个会议时,他的同事认为他在假装自己成功了。但是,在描述自己的经历时他不仅声音发抖,而且还昏了过去。谁也没考虑到他也许已经成功这种可能性,但他们一直照料他,直到他能向他们提供更真实的信息。

  不过那些熟悉哈撒韦的人待他更加公平。当他醒来告诉这些人他已成功地穿越时间旅行时,他们顿时大吹大擂起来。他们对哈撒韦的信任得到了证实,哈撒韦顿时名声大噪。

  但哈撒韦不准备展示他是如何穿越时间旅行的。他说自己对时间旅行的理解有一大错误,他还得弄清楚到底是怎么回事。几个星期过去了,哈撒韦不见了。追随者们闯入他的研究室,结果发现哈撒韦躺在地上。他们给他翻了个身,看到他的脸时吓了一跳:他突然成了一个老头。

  “我无法解决这个问题,”他说,“无论在哪个时间段旅行,你都会继续变老。我刚才在未来待了 30 年,但仍然未能解决衰老问题。”说完这句话,他就咽了气,再也无法告诉任何人他是如何穿越时间旅行的。
