And tonight, I’ve made up my mind. One of us will fly to Mars!” (p. 1). To explain this quote, Fiorello basically proves Bramante wrong, when Bramante is talking of how there is no earthly way that he is able to go to space, and then he talks of how he has saved up enough money already, and it’s guaranteed that one of his family is going to Mars. “Maria looked at her husband. “What have you done?” she said.
This is significant because this is the event where Sheera, her grandmother, and her family knew they had to tell their grandma to think whether she was going to give up levving. When the family met up with her, she was able to make the decision to stop doing it. She knew she would not be able to lev anymore, for this happened to everybody when they got to a certain age that levved. Similarly, the theme of “The Space Rock” is also you need to think hard about important decisions. This is shown when the family must decide whether to keep, give away for free, or sell for millions, the meteorite.
The moon grew bigger and starts to roll all over in Vector’s ship hurting him and freeing the girls. Later, the girls see Gru outside of the ship asking the girls to jump to him. Edith and Agnes made it but as Margo was about to jump, Vector caught her. The moon rolls over again and knocks Vector down, and Margo grabs onto Gru’s grappling hook. Gru rescued Margo with the help of the minions and the rapidly-expanding moon wrecks Vector's controls, causing his ship to carry it back to
Two of them were general discussions of the space debris problem and one article from focused on “Clean Space One”. I already had some background information about space debris problem from the class but these articles gave me additional information about the subject. The article from NASA titled “Space Debris and Human Spacecraft” was highly scientific but understandable for a non-scientist reader. I believe the science that is included faithfully reported since it is from one of the biggest authorities on the field. The article explained well how NASA tracks the debris and maneuvers the spacecraft and debris if necessary.
Dr. James Killian, originally president of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, was appointed the nation’s first national science advisor, and later convinced Eisenhower to establish a national rocket and space agency, which would be the predecessor of today’s NASA (Kuhn 24). With its establishment on October 1, 1958, the American masses put much attention on NASA; Hillary Clinton, 11 at the time, eagerly wrote to volunteer for astronaut training but was rejected due to her gender. There were quarrels within the US government regarding the development of certain warheads, most notably the ICBM. Even as president, Eisenhower was forced to accelerate missile programs to appease the public as well as politicians who were in a state of panic and frenzy. Amid the process of delivering new policies, politicians took stances and Eisenhower faced much resistance.
Like for instance scientists, control rooms, workers, rehearsals and preparations, experiments, schedules, income, expenses, etcetera. On this last topic, lies one of the biggest issues, for money allows the project to be real or bans it form happening, even though, we never even think about when we hear of successful stories of space missions. Space explorations is one of the most expensive branches of science, having a budget around 17.5 billion dollars in 2015 only for the US, according to NASA. So is all the money spent really worth studying uninhabitable space, or only to prove if life on earth began with a meteorite crashing on the earth´s atmosphere-less surface? Or should we spend the money on earth itself, where we live and see daily people starve, lack education and health services, suffer war and conflict?
But Jill is still stereotyped in the series in general. In Resident Evil 5 for a brief quarter of the game Jill is the antagonist, the damsel and the tough “action girl”. As she represents several tropes at once, her message as a character becomes convoluted, as anyone can be a victim, in her case as a damsel and antagonist, and a women can overcome death as explained through the game. Jill Valentine is consistently sexualized through her appearance, character dialogue and weakened by her damsel situations. However, there is hope when a new television series called, Kim Possible is introduced in
When I was in the 6th grade, my English teacher asked us to narrate a few lines on the topic “My ambition in life”. While the other students wanted to become doctors, engineers or lawyers, I proudly told everyone that I wanted to become a space scientist. I always wanted to look at the night sky, through a telescope, but before that wish could have come true I got the opportunity to look past a microscope, looking at the magnificent details of an onion peel. It was like having a Bird’s-eye view over the entire universe, a view that probably only the creator, if any, might get to witness. I was very much overwhelmed with that observation.
The author of Life on Mars, Tracy K. Smith deals with these confusing and puzzling relationships of human existence with the universe. She has tried to explain this idea very well in two of her poems in the collection of Life on Mars: “The Weather in Space” and “The Speed of Belief”. In these poems, the use of “space” as a metaphor along with the use of repetition technique by Smith, allows the reader to accompany her on her journey of grief of losing her father, exploring questions about afterlife, and how the sense of optimism and hope can help tackle the hardest journey of life.

In these poems, the use of “space” as a metaphor along with the use of repetition technique by Smith, allows the reader to accompany her on her journey of grief of losing her father, exploring questions about afterlife, and how the sense of optimism and hope can help tackle the hardest journey of life. The opening poem “The Weather in Space” in Life on Mars starts with Smith questioning about the nature of God. She already believes in the existence of God, but she seeks to know what God is and where is God.
