Chuck Yeager was born on February 13 1923, in Myra, West Virginia. Chuck had always been a curious kid.

To many people the Space Race was one of the most important events of the 1900’s. It started during the cold war when the Soviets and America were racing to get the first ever man on the moon. In order for America to accomplish this goal, there had to be an ambitious president in office. Fortunately for America, John F Kennedy wanted to win this Space Race more than anyone in the United States. On September 12, 1962; John F Kennedy gathered the nation at Rice stadium in Houston Texas to give a speech about the Space Race.

This trait in Charles Lindbergh is undeniable. He had shown natural talent with flying his whole life, starting with being a stuntmen at fairs. He got a chance to handle the controls of a plane while he was with the flying circus, and he loved it. Somebody can’t graduate first in their class as an Army Air Corps reserve without having incredible aptitude in the air. In the airmail, Lindbergh was one of the 25% of pilots that survived their careers in the airmail.
However, his studies were hindered because he was called to serve in the Korean War in 1949. As a U.S. Navy pilot, he had to fly 78 combat missions during this dispute. In 1952, he eventually left the U.S. Navy and resumed his studies. As the years passed, Armstrong decided to join the NACA (National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics), which later on became NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration). When he was with NASA, he held many positions such as serving as an engineer and a test pilot.
Neil Armstrong’s bravery has helped him to be one of the only people to be on the moon and because of that he has inspired many people to follow in his footsteps. Neil is a hero to many people, was an excellent pilot, and he so excellent that he was not only the first person to have ever to successfully land a spacecraft on the moon; he also walked on the moon. (Gregory, Jim) Neil Armstrong was born on August 5, 1930 in an area near Wapakoneta, Ohio. Armstrong was the eldest of three children. His parents where Stephen Armstrong, who was an auditor, and his mom was Viola Engel Armstrong, and she was a homemaker.
THE AIRPLANE The airplane is an astonishing invention known to humankind. It was never imagined that it could be possible to imitate the birds in the sky, that was until the year of 1903. The Wright Brothers were the first men to invent the first working aircraft in December 17. Nevertheless the airplane has proven to show many setbacks to harm society. Including health problems with emission from the plane, and pollution to our environment.
The Lindbergh Kidnapping case might be the most controversial case of the century. In this case,a 20 month old infant who was the son of famous pilot Charles Lindbergh, was kidnapped and murdered.This all took place in Flemington, New Jersey. Charles lindbergh at the time was considered an “American Hero”, he was the first pilot to “solo nonstop airplane ride across the Atlantic Ocean to Paris.” This crime was committed on March 1, 1932, just 14 years after World War I had ended.At this point in history Greman and American relations weren’t strong. Bruno Herman Hauptman was a German carpenter who was found guilty for this crime two years after it was commited.In the article, it states that “ Prosecuters twisted evidence,withheld facts and were driven not by the search for truth but by a desire to close the case.” This was highly controversial because Hauptman never received the fair trial he deserved. The article also states that the police “allowed him (Lindbergh) to run the investigation.” I a case like this, Lindbergh being the father, should of been a suspect, not running the investigation.
Neil Armstrong’s famous line,”That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind” caused more than just excitement, the famous line created disbelief of the occurrence. After Armstrong planted the American Flag into the surface, the President was quick to receive the astronauts call and speak about what was happening. The planting of the flag was a symbolic moment for not only the United States, but for all of mankind because of the significance of the mission. Doors to space exploration were opened for the future the second their feet touched the lunar surface. Stanley Cubrick, a famous film making personnel from the 60's, was brought into the attention of many.
Sleepwalking genuinely saved his life, due to the fact that a jet engine landed in his room at night, but he was meeting his special friend for the first time. Donnie has an imaginary friend named Frank, although he is not a typical friend. He is a six foot tall man in a grey rabbit suit that consistently tells Donnie to do cynical things that would affect his life dangerously. An example would be when Frank convinced him to flood his own school and put an axe through the head of their mascot statue. “28 days, 6 hours, 42 minutes, 12 seconds.

Later into the era of depression, Doolittle would lead one of the most successful missions into Japan as a member of the Army Air Corps.

During the Space Race, many Americans were filled with lots of patriotism and were very happy and proud about comics where the Americans beat the Russians. For this reason, The Fantastic 4 was a very popular comic, because they started off as a group of astronauts racing the Russians into space. The four astronauts were in their rocket ship, on their way to space, when they were exposed to dangerous cosmic rays (Ahmed). The cosmic rays gave each of the four astronauts a different superpower. Reed Richards, the man who invented and built their space ship, became able to stretch his arms and legs.
WW I and WW II SSG Estes. It was a little more than a decade after the Wright brothers when the battle for military air supremacy began. In Max Hastings WW1 Planes: ‘Inventions of the Devil’(2013) “On August 25, 1914, staff at a Bavarian corps headquarters near Nancy in northeast France saw an airplane that circled overhead and dropped a brilliant light. While contemplating this seemingly harmless firework, the Bavarians found themselves under French shellfire. The light had been a flare dropped from the plane to mark their position.” After the Wright brothers first successful flight, many nations learned that aircraft could play a vital role in the war.
Well how did this great event in the history books, The Cold War lead to such an enormous discovery? Let’s go back to the 1940’s…. The space race was related to the cold war but it wasn’t the reason that space exploration started. After World War 2 America and Russia both realized that space rockets were a huge success from the perspective of the importance of space race to begin. In 1955 both the nations announced to their country about the amazing research that was going to take place for the next couple of years or decades.
