The moon landing was the most inportant event in NASA history. 1.If it wouldn’t have been for the landing we wouldn’t know what we know about our galaxy. They found water and a trace of life on the moon. 2. If we wouldn’t have known that there was something else out there, because of people wondering they wouldn’t have found water on the moon.
You could be positive and say that we’re being inspired, or you could be negative and say we’e being deluded. I guess which is true really depends on whether we actually ever make it to Mars with a manned mission, and whether we ever actually colonize the planet. For me, I can appreciate the entertainment value and the deep thinking required of me without deciding for sure whether any of it will actually happen or
The search for another Earth had always been the theme of many science fiction movies. Though not yet been proven if the Earth-like planet exists, the possibility of it is what inspires NASA today. The fact that all resources are limited and starvation is now a social phenomenon makes this film closer to reality. The advancement in technology would enable space exploration possible, but the existence of why there are space explorations is still in question today.
The pyramid itself took 20 years to open with all of the Earth’s resources and it revealed very little due to the damage sustained when opening it. The pyramid represents the highly advanced alien race that long ago placed these beacons. It is a test and a marker to see just how far the humans have reached as a species compared to the rest of the universe. The Earth is only so big and it contains only so many finite resources so it is a fact that the human species must eventually move on to greater and better things in order to expand. This beacon was a milestone on the journey of humans as they have proven their worthiness to meet this alien race that has been watching over the Earth.
Professionalism The crews of the Apollo 13 mission, and the people of the Mission Control that supported them had been selected on the basis of their character and their expertise. They had been well trained. They run simulations and training exercises.
Tina Cai Sci-Fi Paper Synopsis As resources and habitability quickly dwindles from the planet Earth’s clutches, humans all over the globe look for the possibility of living in space. Desperate to avoid what they have caused to their animal counterparts, nations previously in competition work together to fashion technology capable of keeping the human race alive and thriving on a planet other than Earth. The countless successful robotic launches to Mars have provided enough information about the planet that scientists are fairly confident in human survival on planet Mars. In order to successfully transport as many people and resources to Mars as possible, aerospace engineers face problems such as physical space, resource storage, travel efficiency,
Our budget for colonizing Mars is six billion dollars, that’s about how much one trip to Mars would cost. Therefore with our budget being six billion dollars, we can only afford a one way trip. Lives are far more important than having more space. To risk hurting our own kind, and then let them die after doing a great thing for this world would be cruel. In addition, since Mars is so dangerous, the colonists that go to Mars could die or catch a disease on the trip to Mars.
There is no chance that humans would survive in space the way that the characters in the movie did. It would take many years for us to figure out how to reside on another planet. For a good climate change movie to happen we need to feel inspired to get out and do something good for our planet, but the reality of the movie is that it left a us feeling helpless. If the movie would have portrayed a realistic answer to climate change, maybe there would not be such of an impending doom because we can not seem to fix nor adapt to the
Without funds NASA cannot develop new technology and without technology researchers and scientists would not be able to explain a discovery that they made with existing technology. For example, without the invention of the Mars Rover, scientists would not have been able to discover water on Mars. This example alone leaves people questioning space and it attributes such as planets, galaxies and even aliens. This curiosity leads to the second reason as to why people support space activities. The idea of travelling to space is one of the driving factors for people to support funding of space exploration.
Hedman in his article “The Politics and Ethics of Spending Money on Space Exploration.” discusses the appropriate amount of money that should be spent on space travel. He explains that bad decisions, low funding, and unpredicted problems, is the reason our technology hasn 't reached the level that the past expected. Many aren 't satisfied with the space exploration progress. He proceeds next to show what the space program actually does for us,like they provide us with the knowledge of stars,the galaxy and our place in it. Lastly,he wants to give NASA a boost of money to get through transition from flying the shuttle to the CEV(Crew Exploration Vehicle),if we don 't we would be giving the scientists a hard time on judging how much should be spent based on how much was distributed.
The main reason my crew and I are here is to continue the work of our deceased rover explorers to look for signs of life and to colonize for a short while. As soon as the spaceship’s engine turned off
Mark Watney is the protagonist of the novel The Martian. Throughout the novel, he has an ongoing list of problems that he has to overcome on a planet that is over 12 light minutes away from Earth. Right away at the beginning of the novel, Mark Watney has a life threatening problem. His crew left him on a deserted planet after a devastating sandstorm. Watney’s side was penetrated by a satellite communication dish.
Humor Defeats Distant Martian Myalgia Mark Watney, a man created by Andy Weir, in the book The Martian, after an unexpected sand storm, Ares 3 is forced to abandon post and return to mother earth. While they rushed to the ship to retreat from the blinding hell storm, Mark Watney is hit and killed by one of their own satellite dishes, little be known unto his fleeing crew, the satellite only left him unconscious. He later wakes to an abandoned post to find that he is the only man on mars. After coming to the realization of his situation, Mark Watney’s primary reaction to the situation was one of humor, which may have ultimately saved his life. Speaking of saving his life, the first observation Watney makes is his food and lack thereof.
I read the book Packing For Mars by Mary Roach. Packing For Mars is a nonfiction book that sheds light on the uneasy and sometimes awkward aspects of space traveling that allow humans to discover the unknown through rather complex topics of the sciences. Overall, I enjoyed the book because it gave me insight on how we’re able to survive in space due to many inventions and algorithms such as the general relativity equation, yet also being quite entertaining by pointing out on bizarre and comical things astronauts do in space like going to the bathroom or even not showering for such a long periods of time. Mary Roach uses a very interesting yet appealing writing style this book. To begin, Roach seamlessly incorporates important facts and information with humor, which entail keeps the reader thoroughly
Brilliant stories require an even more brilliant hero, they could be relatable and humorous, or maybe even serious and jaded. The great adventures that display these impressive characters also cover their strengths and weaknesses and overall likeability. The classic Epic The Odyssey, written by Homer in the 8th century BC and translated by Robert Fagles, and the space-movie The Martian, written by Andy Weir in 2011 and Directed by Ridley Scott, are both excellent examples of tales with impressive protagonists. Both epic stories exhibit a protagonist persevering through an abyss and being resourceful, but Mark Watney is far more likable then Odysseus, because he is always humorous.
