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!
Beginning in the early months of 1983, Dr. Mae Jemison became the Area Peace Corps Medical Officer for the West African countries of Sierra Leone and Liberia.

This mission was the first flight for pilot Richard F. Gordon Jr, who belonged to the third group of astronauts. The backup crew consisted of command pilot Neil A. Armstrong and pilot William A. Anders. Overall, the Gemini XI spacecraft closely resembled that of Gemini VIII to Gemini XII, as
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
On September 12, 1992 with six other astronauts she flew into space. She became the first female astronaut to go into space Mae C. Jemison came to Earth on September 20, 1992 for eight days or 190 hours in space. Mae C. Jemison noted that societies should recognize how much women and people can contribute if given opportunities. On October 17, 1956 a astronaut was born in Decatur, Alabama, Mae C, Jamison. Her father Charles Jemison was a carpenter and a roofer,
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.
While at NAS Pensacola, PFC Gallaghan completed his studies earning him the 6311 preliminary MOS. PFC Gallaghan then reported to NAMTRAMARU, New River, NC where he attended 6322 MOS School. LCpl Gallaghan graduated NAMTRAMARU on 30 October 2003 as a CH-46 Avionics Technician. LCpl Gallaghan’s first duty assignment was aboard MCB Camp Pendleton, attached to HMM-268. While serving with HMM-268 from November 2003 to December 2006, LCpl Gallaghan served on two deployments to Al Taqqadum, Iraq in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF).
The first history connection mentioned in the book is the first landing on the moon. In the book, a man announces over the radio that on July twenty-eighth, a space probe will be launched to the moon. The space probe was called Ranger Seven, and its main goal was to take pictures and bring them back to earth. In the novel, it was not mentioned that the spacecraft was unmanned. This was
“That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.” This simple phrase by American astronaut Neil Armstrong will forever earn him the title of hero.

Neil Aiden Armstrong was born on August 5”1930 in Wapakoneta, Ohio and by the age of sixteen, he was a licensed pilot. He went on th join the Navy, serve In the Korean War and eventually became a research pilot for NASA. However, some may feel that Armstrong was just a pawn in the US/USSR space race.
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.

He sent his drawn renditions of Jupiter and Mars to the Lowell Observatory, hoping to get feedback from professional astronomers. Instead, they offered him a job. This was before he even earned his bachelor’s and master’s degree. Tombaugh worked there from 1929 to 1945. During his time at the observatory, Tombaugh discovered many asteroids, starting with 2839 Annette in 1929.
