Magic: “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.” These were the words that Neil Armstrong declared when he stepped down from the Apollo 11 spacecraft onto the moon’s surface. A human walking on the moon is no small feat. It would’ve cost more than 100 billion dollars today. The journey itself took a hundred thousand engineers, technicians, and scientists, and even then, they were problems. This 8-day event is a huge marker in history.
Earth is only four billion years old, so that means there have been many planets in between that have had a chance for life (Kurzgesagt). The odds are definitely stacked towards aliens timewise. “Our Earth didn't form until about nine billion years after the big bang. Countless other planets should've formed earlier and given life a chance to get underway, billions or certainly many millions of years earlier than happened on Earth. If just a few of them had spawned intelligent life and started creating technology, that technology would’ve had millions of years to grow in complexity or power” (Anderson).
Launched in 1998 and receiving its first crew in 2000, astronauts from around the world have lived on it ever since. Introduction Once a government monopoly, today space travel has now been expanded to private corporations. The resulting pros and cons have left the international community with questions to answer and decisions to make on the use of private companies in space. The privatization of space endeavors have brought on exciting new opportunities. The privatization of space companies have opened up orbital access to poorer countries and brought a commercial aspect to space exploration.
Over the past century science has progressed rapidly. Since the beginning of time, humans have used science in everything. Today science plays a major factor in our lives. We are able to cure more illnesses than we could have centuries ago. Humans now can go to the moon or have organ transplants.
First and foremost, the author uses the spaceship “President” symbolizes a dream that has been lost over the years. James Maxwell is the President of the world and all he ever wanted to do was to travel into space. Sadly, that chance passed him by years ago “Then, when his chance had passed him by, he’d felt cheated. He wanted to blame others, but nobody else was really to blame.” He uses the ship to symbolize James Maxwell’s dream of going into space and how you might not become what you want, you can still
Without a doubt, society has changed so much since the big release of social media. Many may thinks that social media has made society better in a way that it improved the amount of social interactions, or some may also think that social media has actually provided the opposite effect - making more people become lonely with no friend to hang out with. While all of these points are considerable and can be supported with much evidence, facts, statistics, and scenarios, it may well be argued that the release of social media hasn’t actually changed society too much at all! At first glance, although this statement may seem questionable, just think again. Putting it in a simple manner, the release of technology didn’t make us “more” or “less” connected,
During the space race, the U.S. was dumping money into NASA. Because of this, we not only made innovations in space exploration and put a man on the moon, but we also created things that now we would not be able to live without. It is impossible to go to a doctors office and not find an ear thermostat, or go to the grocery store and not find frozen microwave pizzas. More importantly, it is illegal in many places to rent out a house without smoke detectors, which have saved many people's lives. Not only does NASA cross pollinate the consumer market through space exploration, it can have a huge influence on lifesaving medical procedures.
Nevertheless, it improved our life from side and made worse on other side. Most of people are not aware of the dark side of modern technology. However, this paper argues that although technological advancements improved communication tools, they made face to face communication worse, they distorted social interaction, made us emotionally dull, and made new generation unable to express or read basic human feelings. However, some critics may argue that modern technological advancements
“It inspires people to become scientists and engineers and they are the people who enable tomorrow to exist today” - Neil Degrasse Tyson. A whole new culture is brought forth through NASA a whole new educational surge. NASA enabled people to dream and that itself is priceless. In conclusion there is no excuse as to why nasa should not be funded. The united states is spending billions on war destruction and not on space innovation.
We, Homo sapiens sp. Have walked this earth about two hundred thousand years of the four and a half billion years our earth has been around. We as a species have escalated from drawing pictures on the cave walls to making six dimensional movies in this short period of time. This massive growth in technology makes me believe that creativity enhances the development in technology and vice versa. If not for creativity, the telephone that was discovered by Alexander Graham bell would have not be made into smartphones we use today and because of the advance in technology, programmes such as mine craft helps children to increase their creativity by letting them shape their own world.
