The first humans on the moon captivated and put many in shock while they watch it on their televisions all around the world. President Kennedy’s goal transpired as the moon landing took place on July 20th, 1969. Before the moon landing planning, President Kennedy wanted the nation to commit in space developments because the United States trailed after Soviet Union. In many articles relating to the Apollo 11 event, the sources informed their audience using rhetoric (logos, pathos, ethos) and very detailed. Furthermore, the overall man on the moon event has multiple points of views on importance and greatness, although the event shows worthlessness.
On September 12, 1962, at Rice University in Houston Texas, John F. Kennedy gave a powerful speech to garner support for the funding of the space race for the USA. He stated the importance of putting a man on the moon before the end of the decade in its efforts against the Soviet Union and the expectation was met in 1969 by the astronaut Neil Armstrong. His speech forged a new path that the US was heading and inherently started the revolution of the exploration of outer space. Kennedy’s “Moon Speech” makes use of ethos and Kairos to persuade the people of America to become interested in and invest in the ongoing space race. A very important factor in JFK’s speech was his effective use of rhetoric, notably ethos, which he used to make himself become more believable and authoritative.
The moon landing mission housed a great accomplishment for the world. They burst through the glass that separated space and soil. The three authors are all well known publishers and writers. Authors all over the world found these pieces effective and reliable.
"Houston, we had a problem," is the famous quote that many people use today as a joke. What they are not aware of, is that the quote originated during Apollo 13. People should appreciate the bravery and sacrifices these pilots made to venture into an unknown part of the galaxy where men had never set foot before. This mission inspired greatness among it's crew because many of the flight members had never been in space before, survived for 5 days in unstable conditions, and came home to a forever changed company. Apollo 13 was supposed to be a very trustworthy mission when it launched because they had test pilots who put themselves in danger all the time on the rockets.
He asked congress to approve more than 22 billion dollars for project Apollo, which would land astronauts on the moon. Making him the first president to send people to space and to ask for 22 billion dollars. He was also known for taking part in the Cuban Missil crisis. He and his wife were also was known for making the white house more art and culture filled. Overall he was known his leadership, personality and accomplishments(Life of John F. Kennedy).
Neil Armstrong’s famous line,”That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind” caused more than just excitement, the famous line created disbelief of the occurrence. After Armstrong planted the American Flag into the surface, the President was quick to receive the astronauts call and speak about what was happening. The planting of the flag was a symbolic moment for not only the United States, but for all of mankind because of the significance of the mission. Doors to space exploration were opened for the future the second their feet touched the lunar surface. Stanley Cubrick, a famous film making personnel from the 60's, was brought into the attention of many.
Spoken Word Speech Sentence Outline The Inspiration Behind JFK’s “Race to the Moon” Speech General Purpose: To inform Specific Purpose: To show the inspiration behind JFK’s speech Central Idea: You can accomplish anything no matter how unreal it may seem. Just imagine standing in the crowd at Rice University Stadium in Houston, Texas on September 12th, 1962 listening to John F. Kennedy give his “Race to the Moon” Speech. You hear him talking about his challenge for the United States to go to the moon. This very idea seems quite impractical for the time right?
Firstly, the author claims that because of the many technological advances due to the "Space Race", a commitment to a manned mission to Mars will produce similar results. Although there are many similarities between committing to sending a man to the moon and to sending a man to mars, it false for the author to assume that there will be similar technological and humanitarian advances. The 1960's is a very different time period from today and as a result, it is unknown whether a manned mission to Mars will prove to be a worthy investment. Additionally, a large part of the "space Race" can be attributed to the competition between the USSR and the USA during the Cold War. The competition for becoming the leader in space technology was very fierce and was very politically driven, allowing for huge amounts of money to be invested in space technology.
Space is a pulchritudinous darkness that has attracted us at every time in Earth’s span of existence. Looking up into our sky, we see our accomplishments, as well as our failures. Apollo 13 would be an example as a failed attempt of exploration towards our moon. Apollo 13’s close encounter with blindsiding danger caused NASA to realize the other latter of precautions that needed to be taken. But it’s the dangers they faced that changed the way we see space exploration today.
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.
These four pieces have both important similarities and differences. While all of these texts appeal to pathos in one way or another, the context of each one is different. In, "Man Takes First Steps on the Moon" while there is an appeal to pathos, there is a stronger appeal to logos and the explanation of facts. In the speech, "In Event of Moon Disaster" it strongly appeals to pathos and tries to help people feel optimistic and pushes further exploration of space even if a nation disaster had ensued. Next, in the commentary by Ayn Rand, it appeals to pathos and attempts to show the greatness of man-kind.
An astronaut named Yuri Gagarin was launched in space, known as the first man outside the Earth’s orbit in the spacecraft Vostok I. These incidents hurt the pride and ego that caused the American’s to take a step at such drastic measures even though they faced many failures in the space race. The events in the space race still continue… After this incident years went by and finally the day arrived where America will take the upper hand. Apollo 11 was launched into space in July 20th, 1965. The space craft was named The Eagle.
Sign for analysis: Fahrenheit 451 In Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury, in the midst of a tale of book-burning and lost knowledge, a large looming object gains a peculiar amount of mention: the moon. From the very beginning, imagery has been introduced, when Montag “did not wish to open the curtains and open the french windows, for he did not want the moon to come in the room” (Bradbury 10). After observing Clarisse’s family though his window, Montag “moved back to his own house, left the window wide, checked Mildred, tucked the covers about her carefully, and then lay down with the moonlight on his cheek-bones and on the frowning ridges in his brow, with the moonlight distilled in each eye to form a silver cataract there” (Bradbury 15).
It is my personal belief that the moon landings are very real. So today I’m going to set out to bring you around to my side of the argument. This essay will include many reasons and evidence so that by the end there will be very little doubt that I’m right. The evidence for the faked moon landings are actually pretty convincing, but I will convince you they are wrong.
It appeals to pathos because when you see the words “war, poverty, prejudice” you automatically have a vivid picture of those horrible things. He wants to show people that even if you can go to the moon, you can’t escape these problems on Earth and he believes that people should be spending their time on these problems rather than going to the moon. The picture does not appeal to logos but people must already know about the moon landing to understand this cartoon. How effective is the text in achieving its purpose?
