Reasons people would mistake indentured servants for slaves was because both were considered low in society, did not own many belongings, were not given much food or clothes, were shipped and both looked very similar in standards/appearance.

Indentured servants and slaves had to be transported on ships. The voyage was often a horrible experience for all the passengers. On the ships the inmates had to sleep side by side each other with not much room to move. The best way to describe the sleeping arrangements are that they slept in compartments so the crew could fit more people in the ship. The prisoners were given only enough food to survive and

I researched the Apollo Space Mission. In order to learn more and visualize it, I watched a documentary and read articles about it on the NASA websites. I learned a lot about the mission.
