In 1991 the United States Congress asked NASA to investigate the hazard posed today by large impacts on Earth. why does the author include the information that dinosaurs had flourished for tens of millions of years and then suddenly disappeared? A. present 2. The standard criterion for the survival of a species is its success in competing with other species and adapting to slowly changing environments. They found a unique layer of sediment worldwide. Geologists knew that there had been an impact before they knew where it had occurred. They discovered a large crater in the Yucatán region of Mexico. claim B. Impacts by meteorites represent one mechanism that could cause global catastrophes and seriously influence the evolution of life all over the planet. According to some estimates. The location of the impact site in Mexico was kept secret by geologists from 1980 to 1990. According to paragraph 4. subject to random violent events that were unsuspected a few decades ago. extending C. Yet an equally important criterion is the ability of a species to survive random global ecological catastrophes due to impacts.

COMMUNICATING WITH THE FUTURE In the 1980s the United States Department of Energy was looking for suitable sites to bury radioactive waste material generated by its nuclear energy programs. 10.

Large quantities of nitric acid were produced.

nor that it could survive with its original meaning intact. just three generations ahead. Sebeok’s group proposed a “relay system” in which information is passed on over relatively short periods of time. A second defect is more difficult to dismiss. Furthermore. Only the initiated atomic priesthood of experts would have the scientific knowledge to fully understand the danger. The word "chambers" in the passage is closest in meaning to ________ . So the task became one of finding a way to tell future societies about the risk posed by these deadly deposits. The problem then becomes how to inform our descendants that they must avoid areas of potential radioactive seepage given that they may not understand any currently existing language and may have no historical or cultural memory. A. This so-called atomic priesthood would be entrusted with keeping knowledge of this tradition alive through millennia and developing the tradition into a kind of mythical taboo forbidding people to tamper in a way with the nuclear waste sites. human society in the distant future may be well aware of the hazards of radiation. This is the problem of social exclusiveness brought about through possession of vital knowledge. Of course. We cannot be sure that society won’t have slipped backward into an age of barbarism due to any of several catastrophic events. Even computers that might carry the message cannot be expected to endure long enough. Besides. Its task would be to dedicate itself to maintaining and passing the knowledge of the whereabouts and dangers of the nuclear waste deposits. The message then to be renewed and redesigned if necessary for the following three generations and so on over the required time span. fissures . cavities D. 1. In the event of global catastrophe. In this way information could be relayed into the future and avoid the possibility of physical degradation. The establishment of such an association of insiders holding powerful knowledge not available except in mythic form to nonmembers would be a dangerous precedent for future social developments. Other media storage methods were considered and rejected for similar reasons. Given this restriction. Those outside the priesthood would be kept away by a combination of rituals and legends designed to warn off intruders. The task force under the linguist Thomas Sebeok finally agreed that no foolproof way would be found to send a message across so many generations and have it survive physically and be decipherable by a people with few cultural similarities to us. So. Technological advances may one day provide the solutions to this dilemma. Critics point out that the atomic priesthood could use its secret knowledge to control those who are scientifically ignorant. however. there is no guarantee that any warning or sanction passed on for millennia would be obeyed.emissions must be communicated to our descendants of at least 10. The second law of thermodynamics shows that all material disintegrates over time. any message indicated to future reception and decipherment must be as universally understandable as possible.000 years hence. partitions B. it is quite possible that humans of the distant future will be on the far side of a broken link of communication and technological understanding. Sebeok suggested the only possible solution was the formation of a committee of guardians of knowledge. To counterbalance this possibility. It was soon realized by the specialists assigned the task of devising the communication system that material in which the message was written might not physically endure the great lengths of time demanded. But the belief in constant technological advancement is based on our perceptions of advances made throughout history and prehistory. electricity supplies might not be available in 300 generations. openings C. This proposal has been criticized because of the possibility of a break in continuity of the original message. whether the result of nature such as the onset of a new ice age or perhaps mankind’s failure to solve the scourges of war and pollution.
