Reading passage • Research in High Places • Scientists have found a unique way of carrying out research in high or inaccessible places-by using an inflatable raft which is transferred from one study site to the next by a huge colorful airship. It was first tested in 1989 and is now used widely. • The raft looks like a gigantic spider web. It has six ribs, which are inflated rubber strips connected by netting ,with a small hexagonal raft at the central point. The whole work place covers more than 60 square meters and the raft can hold up to 10 scientists at a time. Its design was evolved by a need for scientist to access the top of trees. Ropes and climbing tower s had all been used previously but with limited success .A solution to this was to build a raft light enough to settle safely on tree tops and then to move it from place to place by air. • There are special entrances into the raft .Researchers are able to reach these from the ground using a harness. It can thirty minutes for a new comer to get up to the raft. In practice, scientists usually climb up unto the raft before dark and sleep there in order to be able to start the next day’s work without delay of a trek from camp and the ascent to the raft. Everyone wears safety line at all times on the raft. A hunting horn is sounded to signal the rafts location for scientist joining it and the same procedure is used to guide the arrival of the airship, which will move the raft to another position on another tree top. • A French team named each of the raft’s rib after a famous street in Paris and named the entrances after metro stations. The central hexagon is called Arc de Triumph!. These names help people locate specific points on the raft-for example, personnel joining the raft from the ground or people delivering supplies from the air. Sleeping and working on the raft is like sailing, as it continuously sways with the movement of the canopy of trees beneath .
