He believed that America could keep the space program going strong despite the recent tragic events. This speech was intended to inform America of the Challenge disaster. Reagan used specific pronouns to address the audience. He focused a lot on the individuals that lost someone due to this dismal occurrence. One thing that he said specifically to those close to the astronauts was, “Your loved ones were daring and brave, and they had that special grace” (3).
The following cartoon displays pathos by displaying an image of a watching the event of the moon la which seems to take place in the moon itself. The image is an example of pathos being used in the cartoon to make people have a certain connection with the illustrator. Additionally, it also shows the realistic image of people observing the event of the moon in their living rooms behind the screen. However, with people being involved in the event of the moon, they forget that at the time there was a drastic amount of poverty, prejudice, and mostly importantly war. At the the time of the moon exploration, the cold war was a big issue in the United States and not many civilians were concerned about it.
The astronauts on the Challenger mission were aware of the dangerous nature of riding a complex machine such as the space shuttle into space, so they can be thought of as having given informed consent to participating in a dangerous enterprise. What role did informed consent play in this case? (5 marks) The airplane pilots weren't informed that engineers complained about the form, but were completely rejected. In this case, the consent form only gives them a general indication about the problem; it doesn't give a clear explanation of what is wrong. They weren't told about the known danger that already happened.
The terrorist attacks on 9/11 have caused many debates over the years since they occurred back in 2001. Two American planes were hijacked and ran into the twin tower buildings, another was hijacked and headed for the pentagon, but thankfully never made it. Thousands of Americans lost their lives on the days of the attacks and to this day the sorrow hangs with us. Security was a huge debate of the time because America is supposed to be the safest nation there is, so how did this happen? America had lots of changes to make the attacks on September 11, 2001.
Apollo 13 depicts the historical story of the 1970’s spacecraft and its tumultuous journey through space. The film highlights the successful failure of a space launch where a series of unforeseen circumstances would become the culmination of NASA’s most demanding challenges. The ability of the individuals’ involved showed great human ingenuity, courage, and the collaboration between these people depicted a human triumph over the human failure. A collection of highly knowledgeable mathematicians, physicists, and engineers worked in unison with three astronauts, Jim Lovell, Jack Swigert, and Fred Haise, to overcome life-threatening hurdles. The people involved in the Apollo 13 crisis were the epitome of perseverance, resilience and tenacity, and their leadership teaches us about the importance of communication, courage, and unity.
“If we learn nothing from this tragedy, we learn that life is short and there is no time for hate.” This quote comes from Sandy Dahl , the wife of the pilot on flight 93. When thinking about 9/11 this quote comes to mind because on that particular day, the world was reminded how short life really is. This quote also intertwines with 9/11 because it teaches us how there is no time to hate, but to move forward and help each other hand in hand. Even though I was only a year old when September 11th happened, I want to understand this horrific event that went down in history of the United States. These attacks were a changing point in American society because it increased the security in American airports, started a war in Iraq and Afghanistan,
Two of them were general discussions of the space debris problem and one article from focused on “Clean Space One”. I already had some background information about space debris problem from the class but these articles gave me additional information about the subject. The article from NASA titled “Space Debris and Human Spacecraft” was highly scientific but understandable for a non-scientist reader. I believe the science that is included faithfully reported since it is from one of the biggest authorities on the field. The article explained well how NASA tracks the debris and maneuvers the spacecraft and debris if necessary.
The famous Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin were on the spacecraft and were the first humans to ever step foot onto a planet other than Earth. They brought back samples of the moon for further study and research. Right after they landed onto the moon, they prepared for liftoff again as a safety measure. They weren 't taking chances because of all the disastrous attempts before Apollo 11. Armstrong was the first of the two astronauts to leave the
In paragraph seven the text states, “During one test flight, Feng lost control of his airplane (not an unusual occurrence), which plunged into his workshop, setting it ablaze.” This quote explains that Feng had to relocate his workshop, since he accidentally burned his workshop down during his test flight. Despite the challenges Feng Ru faced, he still remained a positive and a courageous person. According to paragraph two, it states, “A bolt holding the propeller to the shaft snapped, sending Feng tumbling to earth, bruised but otherwise unharmed.” This quote supports that Feng was not frightened by his first test flight, but was positive because he tried to fly airplanes over and over again, instead of giving up. Therefore, Feng Ru was the first Chinese Aviation Pioneer that brought aviation to
Seventy-three seconds after liftoff, “… the shuttle exploded in a forking plume of smoke and fire”(CT), as the people below watched their loved ones in their final moments. The astronauts that boarded the space shuttle Challenger on that cold morning took a huge risk by proceeding with the launch, despite the unfavorable weather conditions. Almost 30 years later, the Challenger tragedy is still a memorable event to this day. Everyone should take risks because they would never know the rewards or consequences, unless they try. Feeling a sense of pride after taking a big risk is a reward in itself.
One of the greatest space mission is the third mission to land on the Moon, Apollo 13. The Apollo 13 mission to the moon may have been the most miraculous event in history. Not only were the astronauts able to make it through any obstacle they faced, but they used their intellect in every situation. After getting through all the phases of getting through space, such as releasing certain parts of the shuttle and preparing their landing craft, they realize something’s wrong. Their oxygen tanks exploded!
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.
In the second section of the book, “Unbroken”, the author talked a lot about the experiences of the crew that Louie was with when he joined the army. Louie ended up with Phil and several other men to form a crew with their plane, a B-24 model, which they named “Superman”. They were all great pals who went through thick and thin together, but they believed the chance of survival was slim. One day, they barely managed to get it back to home base on one mission when the enemy relentlessly attacked their plane. However, one crew member was beyond help and several more had injuries that rendered them unsuitable for battle, their plane was also unrepairable.
So I evaluate that the current situation he is in is in is way safer then where he started because of the he work he has put in. Also I evaluate that NASA is making a rescue plan because in the book they keep going back to NASA and wondering why a billion dollar company couldn’t save one man? It almost seems as though Mark Whatney is the only man on earth and they don’t like him so they don’t talk ☺. Overall I assess that Mark Whatney is progressively making progress to his ultimate goal, which is get off
