According to the Apollo 11 Surface Operations Overview, the Apollo 11 astronauts had many tasks to perform during extravehicular activity. For one, they collected many samples that are still around today. All of their samples were collected successfully. NASA.gov shows how Michael Collins orbited the moon while Armstrong and Aldrin were on the moon. Imagine how peaceful it must have been!
The Deep impact mission is similar to the rosetta’s because scientists launched a probe into space that was designed to study the interior composition of comet Tempel 1 by releasing an impactor into the comet. Other missions that began a few years after the Rosetta and Deep impact are the Mars gravity assist maneuver (2007) and observe two asteroids Steins (2008) and Lutetia (2010). All of these missions help scientists further understanding in how comets are the oldest most primitive bodies in the solar system that could have formed the sun and
Summarize Kennedy’s famed “moon speech” and why humans were going to the moon. Kennedy declared that it was time to take advantage of this new American Enterprise. He pushed for the United States to take a leading role within the space race, and challenged America to be the first country to land a man on the moon and return him safely by the end of the decade. 2. What was the “space race” and how was it related to the Cold War?
Flag Speech On July, 19th 1939 Apollo 11 landed on the moon. Neil Armstrong sent a message to Mission control in Houston, Texas. The message stated “The Eagle has landed”. I believe that this message is supposed to mean how America was the first country to land on the moon. “Eagle”, representing America because the eagle is an emblem of our country much like our flag.
Our Journey to the Moon On September 12, 1962 President John F. Kennedy gave a speech in Houston, Texas at Rice Stadium. This 18 minute long speech was made to convince the people of the United States as to why we should go to the moon. The “We choose to go to the Moon” speech was written by both John F. Kennedy and his speech writer, Ted Sorensen (Press). The purpose behind this speech was to gain America’s support and to get everyone on board with the idea of space exploration. The reason for the embarkment of space exploration was due to the ongoing space race between the U.S. and the USSR.
The Apollo 16 mission was the 16th lunar mission. It launched from the Kennedy Space Center on April 16, 1972. The crew included Charles M. Duke Jr., John W. Young, and Thomas K. Mattingly II. Once on the moon, the crew was the first to use the lunar roving vehicle (LRV) to cover greater distances than could be achieved by walking. They made visits to Spook Crater, Cinco Craters, and North Ray Crater, among other locations.
Space Exploration Technology is also known as Spacex. In Spacex, “he oversees the development and manufacturing of advanced rockets and spacecrafts” (__). Elon Musk is also the lead designer in Spacex. Spacex’s mission is to build a self-sustaining city on Mars, and have civilization living on it (____). The company’s greatest achievement is the creation of the first privately developed rocket to deliver a commercial satellite into earth orbit.
He has helped test many machines to make space exploration possible and be able to learn about the universe. For example, in the article, How did Neil Armstrong change the world?, it says, “Neil Armstrong changed the world by becoming the first man in history to successfully pilot a spacecraft to land safely on the lunar surface and then walk on the moon.” This tells us how this event changed how space exploration is and the machines to run it. Also he helped teach and advance the technology used for space exploration. As said in the article Neil Armstrong by A+E Networks, it states, “...he joined the faculty of the University of Cincinnati as a professor of aerospace engineering.” Which shows how he helped space exploration to help us to learn
Apollo Missions Leonardo Albuquerque Period 5 The Apollo Program was the third United States human spaceflight program carried out by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). The program started in 1961. The Apollo Program was the first to put American in Space. By 1960’s, the Apollo Program was focused on President John Kennedy 's goal of “landing men in the moon and returning him to Earth safely”. Even though the name of the program is Apollo, the first mission named Apollo was in 1968.
The space craft was named The Eagle. After 3 days of voyage in the space The Eagle finally landed on the moon making its name in history. Neil Armstrong was the very first man to step on the moon; his very first lines were “That 's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind”. This quote meant that even though it is just a one step taken by man but it has changed our lives and science forever. This was a huge success for American’s and if we look back many failures had occurred.
James McDivitt and Ed White where the two astronauts part of the a Gemini. Ed White was the first American to walk in space. White was born on Noverber 14, 1930, in San Antonio, Texas. White went to school at United States Military Academy and University of Michigan U.S. Air Force Test Pilot School James McDivitt is an American former test pilot. James was born June 10, 1929,in Chicago, Illinois.
