The last astronaut’s job was to Pilot the aircraft in Lunar orbit until Armstrong and Aldrin had finished collecting samples. Neil Armstong was officially the first man on the moon. Together Armstong and Aldrin collected about 47.5 pounds of Lunar resources to bring back to earth for testing. Overall the mission was a success in the fact that America beat the soviets in the Space Race, and also collect almost 50 pounds of Lunar resources. Apollo 11 returned 18 days later on July 24th to be greeted by a huge crowd.
This scientific study will analyze the first moon landing by NASA in the Apollo 11 space mission from July 16th to July 20th in 1969. The launching of the Apollo II program was the first designated landing of a space vehicle in the history of the human race. Under the leadership of Neil Armstrong, Michael Collins, and Buzz Aldrin, the Apollo 11 mission defined one of the most important acheivements of early astronuatics in the Apollo space program. The initial stage of the mission involved being launched from the Kennedy Space Center by a Saturn V rocket. This rocket had three major parts involved in the space mission, which included a command module, service module, and lunar module that carried the three astronauts into space after the launch.
On January 9, 1969 Armstrong was named commander of Apollo 11, and that was the first try to land a human on the moon. On July 16 1969 Armstrong and his pilots took off to the moon. About seven hours after they landed, they opened the door and walked down the ladder before he became the first man to walk on the moon, He said “that’s one small step for man, and one giant leap for mankind “. Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin spent more than 2 hours outside the craft. They studied the surface and collected rocks, and after a day, they left and docked with Collins while he was in orbit then all three flew back.
On July 20th, 1969, the Apollo 11 with astronaut Neil Armstrong and his crew, guided by thousands of NASA technicians, supposedly landed on the surface of the moon. It was certainly one of the most extraordinary events accomplished by mankind up to that date. Neil Armstrong’s first words upon stepping on the moon surface will always be remembered “ A small step for mankind, a giant leap for humanity”. Ever since then, this achievement has been a matter of discussion by several groups that either believed or disbelieved this. There are people who believe that the entire moon landing was “ The greatest government conspiracy of all time”.
His scheduled flight was postponed multiple times and gave Russia the successful chance to send the first man into space. Shepard eventually launched on May 5, 1961. He named his spacecraft, Mercury Spacecraft 7, Freedom 7. Alan Shepard became known as the second person in space and the first American in space. As technology advanced, the Soviet Union and American space programs continued to advance and compete against each other.
Launched on April 11, 1970 at 1:13 pm (central time) from the Kennedy Space Center, Florida Apollo 13 was the seventh manned mission in the Apollo space program. Apollo 13 was aborted two days after the launch because an oxygen tank exploded. In this mission, to explore space there was a brave crew of men who risked their lives to explore space for more undiscovered information. These men went out of this world not knowing if they would make it to space or back, anything could have happened. They all had family that watched them leave and waited for them to come back.
This mission was to get a power source on the moon. He made the trek of 250,000 miles in order to complete this mission; it was worth it though, I mean look at those pictures taken by fellow astronaut Richard Gordon. He went on to be the commander
My topic is about “John F. Kennedy’s Moon Speech”. The speech was given by the John F. Kennedy at May 25 1961 after the astronomy landed on the moon and returned to the Earth safely. This event is one of the most important events in the astronomic history. It was the first time that people truly landed and walked on the moon. This landing event did have a great influence in the history and politics.
Ray Bradbury’s 1950 dystopian novel, The Rocket is a short science fiction classic based on a man who fantasizes of travelling to space. This futuristic tale communicates, how anyone is authorized to travel to space without any prior experience and preparation on how to operate and navigate a rocket. The story of the The Rocket, is based during a more advanced time in the future as anyone at that time is able to fly to space as long as they have money to support their trip, the protagonist is a father, named Fiorello who wants to bring his family to space, but to do that he must save a lot of money as the trips are far too expensive, nobody believes that he will be able to accomplish this task and even when people are that it’s impossible
