The story Cold Equations by Tom Godwin, and the poem Traveling Through the Dark by William Stafford, both use two components of moral reasoning; moral judgment, and moral motivation. Cold Equations takes place in outer space where a slight increase in mass not included in the original calculations could get someone killed. Traveling Through the Dark takes place in 1962 on a road probably countryside. An example of moral reasoning is moral judgement, or the ability to correctly reason in regards of certain circumstances. In The Cold Equations Barton the Pilot of the EDS ship finds a stowaway who boarded the ship illegally and says “These ships are given barely enough fuel to reach their destination, and if you stay aboard, your added weight will cause it to use up all its fuel before it reaches the ground.
The Bermuda Triangle, also referred to as the Devil?s Triangle is one of the biggest mysteries of our time. It is a section of the Atlantic Ocean which is known as a strange sea where a number of ships and planes have disappeared under mysterious circumstances, and which extends from Florida to the islands of Bermuda to Puerto Rico and then back to the east coast of Florida. Many stories and famous ships are connected to this Triangle legend and many authors wrote about the strange accidents in that region. In despite of the unexplained and paranormal incidents, there is still speculation as to what might have happened before long time. Some authors wrote about the reasons behind the disappearance about these ships and planes.
Amelia Earhart’s determination to accomplish superior achievements did not stop her from attempting to be the first woman to fly around the world. Unfortunately, Earhart’s dream journey fell short. What really happened to Amelia Earhart? There are numerous theories about her mysterious death that are controversial. Although many people believe that Amelia Earhart crashed into the ocean and died due to several pieces of evidence, it can be proven that she landed on an uninhabited
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.
In 2081, for example, they say how handicaps is anyone who are better than anyone else. In modern America though, handicaps are members of society who have something physically or mentally wrong with them. This isn’t right, but carbon-based lifeforms won’t know if the authors were right until 2081. In the dystopian novel Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury, war is something that is not uncommon. It happens every night, with the planes just dropping bombs over and over and one more time.
Cooper left two of the best parachutes back on the plane suggesting he was a beginner skydiver (Pasternak 6). The FBI also made some mistakes. Of the two parachutes he took, one was a non-working training parachute that had been supplied by mistake. If he relied on that chute, he undoubtedly fell to his death (D.B. Cooper 3).
Cooper are the fact that he died in the jump and that he is living as a mystic, hidden identity. The day D.B. Cooper summer-salted out of that plane is one of the most intriguing and engrossing mysteries that decided the fate of D.B. Cooper. First, even though there were several people on the plane along with Cooper, he is an inexplicable mystery, and nobody knows how he ended up (“D.B.
The area within the Gulf of Mexico, the Florida Straits, and towards Europe is very turbulent and swift. This can erase any evidence of wreckage from planes or boats fairly quickly. During the summer there are very many hurricanes and severe summer storms that occur often and can also be the cause of plane/boat crashes or missing evidence from crashes. According to (Emily, 2014, p. 3) “The unpredictable Caribbean- Atlantic storms that give birth to waves of great size as well as water spouts often spell disaster for pilots and mariners. (Not to mention that the area is in “hurricane alley.”) The topography of the ocean floor varies from extensive shoals to some of the deepest marine trenches in the world.
“No confusion, no noise of any kind, one could believe no danger was imminent.” On April 10, 1912 the "biggest ship above water" set off from Southampton, England to New York City, the "Unsinkable ship" had sufficiently lifeboats to save others from a different smaller ship that could potentially sink. Perceptions of the sinking of the Titanic have changed over time due to research findings, public knowledge, and in depth studies. After some time with new information, researchers have finished examinations that has offered new actualities on how the Titanic sank and why. People have developed another insight concerning how the Titanic sank. Before studies began coming forward many only knew what they were told, which was the Titanic hit a substantial icy mass and sank, killing many individuals, however the studies does not broadly explain.
It was the time that Christopher Columbus was sailing from Western Europe to the Caribbean islands. His voyage skirted the Southern edge of the Bermuda Triangle where he declared multiple compass malfunctions as well as strange lights in the horizon. Since then, there have been a number of reports about these phenomena, which led to many unexplained missing ships in the Bermuda Triangle zone. One of the greatest mysteries of the sea was the USS Cyclops, which happened in the Bermuda Triangle area in the early 20th century. The USS Cyclops was an American huge carrier ship that was commanded during World War II.
Because of it we lost 269 innocent lives that cannot be replaced. One little mistake of auto-pilot and hundreds lost by the Soviets. The U.S.S.R. made excuses and made up stories to not get in trouble for a week even though The U.S had proof of the stories being made up and the Korean plane making a mistake on accident. In the end the Soviets did fess up and said in a conference that the Soviet Union shot down the Korean airline flight 007 and would do it again if need be or if they wanted to so be careful where you
The saga of Flight 19 remains as one of the most mysterious disappearances in Bermuda Triangle. Flight-19 was the code name for Five Avenger bomber planes that took off from the Naval base at Florida on 5th of December 1945, but never returned. U.S Navy 's final report mentioned "Reasons Unknown" when citing the cause of the incident. Thus Flight-19 also became known as The Lost Patrol. So what was actually Flight 19 and what really happened?
However The planes’ events were not alike, the planes that attacked at Pearl Harbor were bombing planes and the attack on 9/11 the planes that were driven into the twin towers were commercial airlines. Also The planes that on 9/11 was a suicidal
The USS Maine explodes in Havana Harbor, Cuba, due to an unknown origin. The investigation of the cause is being explored. Yesterday, February 15, 1898 at 9:40pm, 260 officers died out of a 400 man crew. This morning’s recovery efforts only revealed dilapidated parts of the warship’s superstructure floating in the harbor. The people of Havana have been thrown into a state of panic after the explosion shook the city.
In the same line the Carroll A. Deering was another ghost ship from the Bermuda triangle and resulted in creating one of the biggest Maritimes mysteries since then. The ship, while returning from the Brazil to the Portland in January 1921 was found abundant as well as derelict in the diamond shoals in the North so California. Is this case again the crew member and the captain of the ship were missing? Like in many previous cases they vanished forever and never showed up again. The Marine Sulphur Queen, it was a 524 foot carrier of the sulphur in molten form and had started the sail on the Feb. of 1963 from the port of Beaumont in Texas carrying about 39 crew members.
