The radio and telecommunication have also been improved (NASA), space has changed our life, and without the invention of the satellite, there won 't be Internet, no communication, no international trade, and no economy… One of the Long-term effects of this race would be that the government started to spend more money on education because of the great enthusiasm with science that society had because of this race (University Nebraska). As we can see, the Space Race of 1950-1960s has been a huge period of technological advancement; it improved the economy, allowed great minds to be educated, and of course worldwide communications which made it easier to solve political problems such as the Cold
Space exploration has long been a debated topic. From the days where there was controversy between whether the universe revolved around the Earth, because god made humans special, to whether Copernicus’s idea that the Earth and the other planets of the solar system revolve around the sun was true. Then there was the space race where there was a dilemma based on what was ethical to be produced and sent to space (such as weaponry during the cold war). The more contemporary problem involves the exploration of space and the danger that space debris poses. We must accept however that space is our back-up plan if we were to exploit the Earth to such an extent that we could no longer survive here.
Why explore space? It’s an expensive arena to play in, between the fuel costs and the technological challenge of operating in a hostile environment. For humans, a small mistake can quickly become fatal — something that we have seen several times in space history. And for NASA’s budget, there are projects that come in late and over budget, drawing the ire of Congress and the public. These are some of the drawbacks.
Why do so many people deny the childlike curiosity of knowing what goes on past what we can see? There are a number of good reasons to expand the space program. Although it can be an extremely costly endeavor, space exploration could provide the world with a far greater knowledge of our universe and planet, spark revolutionary innovations, and take the next steps in human expansion. Many people reject the idea of space travel because of how expensive and dangerous it is, and suggest that the United States fix the problems on Earth before worrying about the problems beyond it. Of the United States’ funds, NASA has spent “more than $900 billion since its creation in 1958 through 2014” (Fowler).
The NASA proposed space exploration to search for a new habitable planet and if successful would either bring the people to that new planet or build a colony of human beings there with the use of artificial wombs, if the former would be impossible to do. The space exploration was, at the end of the movie, became successful. Human beings found another planet named Cooper Planet which is rich in food resources as well as oxygen. This film is very scientific which is manifested in the usage of terms and concepts. The words used such as Gargantua, Murphy’s law, Morse Code, Binary System and such, were jargons of those who specialized in that field, which is Astronomy.
This article presents the economic benefits that can be brought by the space exploration such as space tourism, extraction of resources on the Moon and asteroids. Author of this paper argues that utilization of extraterrestrial resources will significantly reduce the costs for space missions, because the studies prove that the key elements which are used for the rocket fuel can be found on the asteroids. Also, humanity can benefit from the space-based economy. Mining of the asteroids and the planets in the Solar System will solve the problem of scarcity of resources on Earth. This source can be used in the project to show that the further development of space technologies will allow humanity to benefit from space
A Virginia Baker (Research Fundraiser) Much is written about space exploration. We are bombarded by movies which depict scenes from the outer reaches of space, so far away it’s unimaginable and we are encouraged to believe that there is perhaps a place we could escape to if our planet suddenly annihilates itself. Of course, this is pure fantasy. Logically, this theory leaves me cold. We are neither sophisticated enough nor have the intelligence or know-how to manufacture a spacecraft which would be able to transport us into deep space and back again.
Emma Lang Mr. Miller Class #2 Rosetta Mission Research Paper 2/19/18 Rosetta Mission Have you ever wondered what it would be like to travel 4 billion miles into space in a different atmosphere to discover a dark and dusty comet? The mission of comet 67P/C-G was to accompany it into the solar system, they did this by deploying the philae lander with the help of NASA and making this the first controlled comet. This mission helped scientists begin to understand the changes in the season as the comet left the inner solar system on its outbound leg. The history, current perceptions, and future implications of the Rosetta Mission all help scientists with the understanding of the origins of solar system life and earth. The journey of the
Intermediate cratering was smaller asteroids and debris smashing into the moon, creating smaller craters in the surface of the mare. From this time, until today, ray cratering has been taking place (Evolution of the Moon. 2012). These are the craters that have bright rays coming off of them. Lunar exploration began when the Soviets’ Luna flew by the moon in 1959.
During the years preceding the World War I, exponential progress in space technology was made in countries like Germany, the USSR and the USA. Unsurprisingly, their activities received an enormous boost during the war and afterwards, leading eventually to the great breakthrough of 1957, when Sputnik I became the first satellite to orbit the Earth in outer space. In April 1961, Yuri Gagarin completed the first manned space flight and in 1969, Neil Armstrong became the first human being to set foot on the moon. It had, by then, already become apparent that legal rules were indispensable, if confusion and undesirable practises in the use of outer space were to be avoided. While on the subject of history, it is worth going through the evolutionary
