The rocket was flying so fast and the rocket could have protected the astronauts. Some people believe that the landing are fake because Neil was filmed stepping on to the Moon but no one knows who filmed him. Buzz Aldrin probably filmed him. Maybe Buzz was floating connected to a rope a never touched the Moon. Maybe he was filmed from the
After the attachment of the Lm, a large explosion erupted and the whole module was sent spinning which caused a misdirection of their course. Immediately NASA’s ground team and the piolets worked together as a team and were able to find the problem and conclude what was needed to stop the out of control spinning. Unfortunately with this explosion, it caused enough oxygen leakage that the landing on the moon was scrubbed. Resulting in a great disappointment on the team, it affected their
Balancing nursing school and my entire life can be hectic. I handle my scheduling problem by having a routine and an organizer in my phone. As soon as I get done eating my lunch that’s when I usually study. I go to my local Barnes and Noble to study because I can focus there better than at home. I usually take a break from studying every time my brain can’t retain the thing that I’m studying, so I won’t burn out from studying.
“If the oxygenator breaks down, I’ll suffocate. If the water reclaimer breaks down, I’ll die of thirst. If the Hab breaches, I’ll just kind of explode. If none of these things happen, I’ll eventually run out of food and starve to death.” (Weir 7).
In the other hand, the expedition demonstrated the use of the scientific method, Newton’s 3 laws, and the Law of Conservation of Energy. A good example of scientific method, is the observation of the rocket. Before, scientists were mainly focused on if the rocket could improve from previous rocket missions like Apollo 12. Using the disadvantages of Apollo 12, scientists began improving Apollo 13 to make a safer journey.
Then after that moment, they heard the bang that is why they said that they had their eyes upon them because of the reason that the oxygen that they had on the spacecraft was getting out. Also one of the men (Fred) said," The gas that was coming out and it was the oxygen" and from that point, on the Apollo 13 mission went from landing on the Moon to saving their lives. In the Apollo 13, there were three men, and they had a mission to land on the moon. When they were on their way to do their mission, their oxygen tank exploded, and they were losing their oxygen. Apollo 13 had a disaster that was mostly important, because there were people (three men) inside losing their oxygen.
In Andy Weir’s breakout novel, The Martian, astronaut Mark Watney gets stranded on Mars when his crew’s mission to the planet’s surface goes horribly awry. An unusually large sandstorm surprises the crew, leading to them being forced to abort their mission. During the evacuation, however, Mark Watney, the team’s resident mechanical engineer and botanist, gets hit and swept away into the storm by an unsecured piece of equipment. The crew, believing him to be dead, goes ahead with the mission abort, leaving Watney injured, but alive and stranded on the Martian surface. Through the development of the character of astronaut Mark Watney, Weir illustrates brilliantly, yet poignantly how humor is a very effective psychological tool to cope with hardships.
“But the little star heard, his every word,” and she hurries over to the Moon, where the sea sprite is and takes him by the hand and brings him back down to Earth “where they live forever and aye” (London, Jack. “The Sea Sprite and the Shooting
Captain Wilder misunderstands what it would be like to be lonely. This shows in the quote, “How would it be, he wondered, to live on a planet with a wife and three children and have them die, leaving you alone with the wind and silence?” (Bradbury 165). Captain Wilder realizes that Hawthorn’s family, even though they are androids, relieves his loneliness. This is present in the quote, “There’ll never be anything as fine as them again.
You see, the astronauts that are chosen to go, they won’t be coming back. They will have to stay and live the rest of their lives on Mars. So, if somebody there feels they need to return to Earth, that won’t necessarily be an option. Many people argue that this is unethical because of how extreme and difficult life on Mars will be. Since Mars is much further from the Sun, its temperatures tend to be much lower than Earth 's, with an average temperature of -81 degrees F. (mars.nasa.gov)
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.
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.
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
