Archaeologist discovers the the bones of dinosaurs from different time periods. Some believe that a large asteroid hit the earth, killing all living matter. Others believe that a huge volcano erupted on earth killing all matter on earth quickly. One other theory of the death of the dinosaurs is the continental drift, this was a slow killing because of the cooling and drying climate. The last theory is in the bible, they believe the flood caused all the dinosaurs to die out.
During the 20th century, racism was a very large issue in America. Abraham Lincoln had freed all the slaves by issuing the Emancipation Proclamation in 1863; however, that did not get rid of the large amount of segregation and violence towards black Americans. During the Civil Rights Movement, that started in 1954, there were many African American activists fighting for freedom and equality. The most significant of these activists was Martin Luther King, Jr. One of King’s most influential speeches, I Have A Dream, was delivered during one of the largest rallies of the Civil Rights Movement, The March on Washington. King’s main purpose in this speech was to convince all of America to stand up against injustice and fight for the freedoms that
Why this despicable act? He was the first Catholic President in American history, gunned down in Dallas, Texas on the 22 November 1963. When his brother Robert ran for president in 1968 he too was killed by an assassin’s bullet in a hotel in California. Were the Kennedys doomed? Earlier, civil rights leader Martin Luther King was killed in Memphis, Tennessee by an assassin’s bullet.
The legacy of this movement had a powerful impact on the formation of Hip Hop as a subculture, community and subsequently one of the biggest music industry. Hip Hop also plays a very important role in modern culture and society of African-Americans. After the abolition of slavery, African-Americans
Magic: “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.” These were the words that Neil Armstrong declared when he stepped down from the Apollo 11 spacecraft onto the moon’s surface. A human walking on the moon is no small feat. It would’ve cost more than 100 billion dollars today. The journey itself took a hundred thousand engineers, technicians, and scientists, and even then, they were problems. This 8-day event is a huge marker in history.
On February 1, 2003, the Columbia space shuttle crashed reenter the earth’s atmosphere, killing all seven crew members. Then the disaster was the second fatal accident in the Space Shuttle program after Space Shuttle Challenger, which broke apart and killed seven-member crew seconds after liftoff in 1986. The Columbia mission was the second space shuttle disaster after Challenger, which saw a catastrophic failure during launch in 1986. Columbia disaster directly led to the retirement of the space shuttle fleet in 2011. Columbia was the first space shuttle to fly in space.
The dinosaurs are vertebrate animals that dominated our planet for over 160 million years ago. It is said that they first appeared on our land 230 million years ago. Our attention was drawn to the dinosaurs after watching the blockbuster science fiction film entitled Jurassic Park directed by Steven Spielberg in 1993. By the end of the Cretaceous period, about 65 million years ago, they had experienced a catastrophic extinction. How often have you wondered what happened to the dinosaurs?
The term we cannot be satisfied is repeated throughout a portion of King’s speech, followed by various examples of hatred acts towards the Black community. This repetition emphasizes his constant motif of unity and equality, as well as freedom for his fellow people. A more effective piece of repetition is the title of Dr. King’s speech, in which he addresses all the problems of discrimination bestowed upon the African Americans. Each problem is only the beginning of what the African Americans endure every day. The phrase “I have a dream…”(King) is preceded by dreams of a better future by each and every Black person in America.
Cousino’s story. The Challenger, an aircraft made by NASA for space exploration, remains one of the most well known aircrafts launched by the company. The aircraft remains infamous due to the horrific live broadcast of the explosion. Before the horrendous accident, the Challenger went through rigorous trials over a span of three years before lifting off for the mission. The first recorded flights of the Challenger occurred between April 4th and April 9th of 1983.
Laika was predicted to die when the oxygen went out roughly ten to nine days but died from thermal problems in one to two days (Williams). Closely after to the launch of Sputnik 2 the United States of America launched Explorer 1. Explorer 1 was the United States of America's first satellite in space. This race to see who had better technology this shows how the tension to see who is better either The United States of America or the Soviet Union. This tension is rising to lead up to be
