How his discoveries have impacted our lives, is that we would have had a little bit of knowledge of space, or even the universe. Another reason how it can impact our lives, is that if he didn’t support the Copernican system that stated that planets orbit the sun rather than the Earth as the Catholic Church said at the time, we would have still thought that we are the center of the
He was important because he was the first human to explore and walk on the moon. On July 20th, 1969, the United States Apollo 11 was the first mission to land on the moon. He piloted the module to the surface with Buzz Aldrin aboard. At 10:56 A.M., Armstrong exited the Lunar module. As he stepped out of the module one of the few words he said was, “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.” Armstrong was televised and witnessed by hundreds of millions around the planet.
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. He was known as a worldwide hero for being the first person to walk on the moon. In 1978 Armstrong received presidential Medal of Freedom, and in 2009 he received congressional gold medal and the collier trophy. (Smith, John M, and Tim Cawkwell, the World Encyclopedia of the Film) Neil Armstrong’s impact on society was big because he was the
The moon landing is also of such astronomical precision, based on the Orion Star cluster. Either the sea of tranquility is a constant match as the great Pyramids of Egypt on planet Earth. The time chosen to land on moon is also set according to the astronomical constant happen with moon and Orion Cluster. The landing and takeoff from moon happened within the same time, when those astronomical constants were happening in the moon for few
This spacecraft swung past Jupiter on February 2007 for a gravity boost before continuing on the rest of the venture of the mission that was intended for a flyby of the dwarf planet, Pluto. On July 14, 2015, New Horizons made the closest approach to Pluto, sending back many pictures of the planet. Now, as part of the extended mission (pending NASA approval), the spacecraft is expected to head further into the Kuiper Belt. If able to, New Horizons will be examining ancient, icy mini-worlds that are at least a billion miles outside of Neptune’s orbit. We chose the Space Race as our topic of research, because the events of the Space Race became very vital to the space exploration we all know, and are familiar with today.
A star that goes by the name of Trappist 1 (named after the small telescope in Chile TRAnsiting Planets and PlanetesImals Small Telescope–South)has orbiting planets in the constellation Aquarius. Trappist 1 is about 40 light years away from Earth and is 12 times less the size of the sun but only a little bit bigger than Jupiter. Out of these seven planets, three of them are best suited for life. These planets are part of the Goldilocks Zone, they have the right amount of energy from their host star that oceans could exist. A group of astronomers found these planets by using a method called the transit method of planetary detection.
This is evidence that the moon landings were faked because only two astronauts walked on the moon at a time, yet in photographs such as this one where both are visible, there is no sign of a camera. Who could have taken the picture? ‘The cameras were mounted to the astronauts ' chests,’ said astronomer Phil Plait. In the picture above, Plait says, "you can see [Neil 's] arms are sort of at his chest. That 's where the camera is.
He was the first to lay eyes on the Rings of Saturn, and he also discovered and named the numerous Jupiter moons. Not to mention, he was the very first to observe sunspots, which was rather significant, because it was believed by the church that the sun was perfect and without blemishes of any kind. What Galileo is most well known for his for his strong defense of the idea of a heliocentric solar system, in lieu of religious persecution that he was subjected to. However unlike Copernicus, he was able to provide the scientific
One of the greatest accomplishments of the Apollo missions was the integrated circuit, which led to the microchip used today. Created to minimize the amount of mass launched into space, integrated circuits are used in almost all technology today (Gaudin). While there are a few monuments to commemorate the Apollo 11 mission or Neil Armstrong, none of them incorporate all of the important effects mentioned above, as this monument would. Not only would this monument educate the public on what the Moon landing meant for the United States, it would allow them to realize how much of today’s technology they gained from the space program, a realization much needed today when the government wants to end NASA’s
This law of planetary motion describes how the planets move. The law states that not only is the solar system sun-centered (proving a heliocentric theory earlier proposed by other astronomers and scientists), but also states that all planets involved in this system move in an elliptical pattern, and not in a perfect circle. This was a huge topic for a while. Not many people took the chance to argue with the theory, most likely because the law was inspired using some of Brahe’s accurate studies of how the planets orbit the sun. According to traditional Greek belief, the circle is seen as a symbol of divine perfection.
