The documents of the 1969 Apollo 11 mission that had landed the first humans to the moon have appeals to ethos, logos, and pathos and are effective in achieving its purpose. These documents were composed by different sources appealing to the audience and its use of ethos, logos, and pathos and how they each comply to make the documents potent to its purpose. Document 2 is a speech written for president Richard Nixon in case if there was a moon disaster. This speech was addressed to US citizens to notify them that the astronauts unfortunately could not make it back. Nixon appeals to pathos by using a strong sense of adjectives to describe their hard work they have done throughout this journey.
The journalist would give more data and perhaps explained the problem to the people with figures or images. I can also say the same thing for the NASA’s article. Visuals would make the article more informative. In this regard, my third article, “Space Junk Cleanup Satellite Launching on Swiss Space Plane in 2018”, by Rob Coppinger was highly satisfactory. The journalist supported the ideas and information with videos and images.
The creators of this film hoped for the younger generation and just anybody to watch the film and realize all of the events that happened during that time in history. The ideas and feelings that they wanted to communicate was to be helpful in giving accurate information about space history. In the film, it says “The towers of Canaveral give Florida a unique place in the history of man. Moonport USA. Moonport of the free world.
Kayla Bell Ms. Dillard H Lit Comp 9 15 September 2015 Title John F. Kennedy speech, in his “We choose to go to the moon”, discusses his view and support on the effort to land a man on the Moon and return him safely to the Earth. Kennedy’s purpose is to be able to send a man to the moon and back without any harm done to him. He adopts a motivational and passionate tone in order to persuade people to support his idea. Kennedy begins his address speaking about how far we have come and how fast we have come in recorded history. He acts on the audience by saying “The greater our knowledge increases, the greater our ignorance unfolds.” He joins in this time of ideas and political movement to simply admit “No man can fully grasp how far we
(Dennis 714) By giving the members of the space shuttle crew recognition as “pioneers”, the speech had a smooth transition from its nature as sincere eulogy into a rhetorical work with a deliberative occasion. As soon as audience received a message implying that Challenger was a beginning instead of an end and how discovery has its risk, Ronald Reagan was in a good position to elaborate his objectives on the space program. Considering its effectiveness, the transition between the bad news and the new hope is one of the greatest features of the speech. This transition is crucial to connect two parts of the speech that are equally important. Imagine if Ronald Reagan only talked about the heartache prior to expressing his support to NASA, people might question his sincerity and become suspicious about his real intention.
Speech analysis: John F. Kennedy “The decision to go to the moon” On September 12, 1962, the president of the United States JFK delivered a speech at Rice University in Houston, Texas regarding the special effort of the nation. He starts by addressing the president of the university and vocalizes his appreciation for the opportunity of having been conferred to speak before the public. He continues by emphasizing three qualities that are necessary in his time, characterized by different contrasts such as: change as opposed to challenge, hope as opposed to fear and finally knowledge against ignorance. The qualities of which he speaks are present according to President Kennedy in the faculty where they are gathered through knowledge, in the progress
In Pericles’ oration, he uses we to refer to all of Athens and their accomplishments. Instead of just saying that Athens, the city, is great, he uses the personal pronoun in order to turn the reasons behind its greatness to the people. As for Ronald Reagan, it was also very important that he included himself as part of the victims. Even though he was referring to the space program in his anaphoric statements (“We don’t hide...We don’t keep secrets...We do it all up front…”), he used “we” to show how the program was a service to all of the people and not just the government. Because the president is such a high figure in American society (being in a representative position), it made the speech more engaging by including the regular citizens in a group along with someone with such a high rank.
The moon landing in 1969 not only summed up the 1960’s, but also gave the American people a glimmer of optimism. Neil Armstrong taking those first steps on the moon greatly affected the 1960’s in a positive way that affected the world today. During the 1960’s, there were times of hardships, happiness, and peace. With the Vietnam War raging on the other side of the world, Americans back home were on anti-war
This debris and piece of Earth molded together to form the Moon. The Moon then stayed and started orbiting the Earth. This theory explains why the Earth has a smaller core that is made of the same material as the Earths core. The impact from the collision could have resulted in the "Earth 's fast initial spin" (Newman). The energy from this collision is an explanation for the extra heating of the Moon.
The sun’s light reflecting off of the moon makes it visible to us on Earth. He also said that the moon revolves around the sun. This is wrong because the moon rotates counterclockwise around the Earth as the Earth revolves around the sun. The moon’s rotation around the Earth and sun’s light reflecting off of it causes the phases. The moon goes through 8 phases, new moon, waxing crescent, first quarter, waxing gibbous, full moon, waning gibbous, last quarter, and waning crescent.
Causal use is consistent with the content of sections 1.21-1.29, because it focuses primarily on the sociology of the Moonmen. There are many instances where the narrator has to further explain the bizarre behaviors and customs he is describing because
Now it was time to watch as Neil Armstrong took the first steps on the moon to plant the American flag on the moon symbolizing our victory in the notorious “Space Race” with the Soviet Union. It was a great day for America as we won the “Space Race” and got safely to the moon, but not everyone was happy. In this essay, I will be talking about why some conspiracy theorists think that the historical moon landing of 1969 was staged and why I still believe that it was in fact, real. To begin, I will be showing you some evidence theorists use to support their claim of the landing being fake. The first is that when
Different types of articles all regarding the same topic can persuade the audience. Each text in the given document all are effective in their own ways involving either ethos, logos,pathos. These texts are all forms of using rhetoric appeals that are effective. In the article “Man Takes The First Step on the Moon” involved facts,emotion,and beliefs which is pathos, logos and ethos. The purpose is that everyone in the world will come together for an extravagant moment in history.
Now, for the non-believers, including me, there are many facts I have dug up so let’s start with this one. One thing I found is that if Neil Armstrong was really the first person to land on the moon, then who filmed him getting off the lander from outside the lander? If he were to be filmed, I would expect it to be from the inside the lander. Next, It was said that the astronauts that went to the moon trained for the gravity for the moon in a fake environment, so could the whole have been filmed from that very place? This also supports the other fact that I gave about Neil Armstrong being filmed getting on the moon from the outside of the
These four pieces have both important similarities and differences. While all of these texts appeal to pathos in one way or another, the context of each one is different. In, "Man Takes First Steps on the Moon" while there is an appeal to pathos, there is a stronger appeal to logos and the explanation of facts. In the speech, "In Event of Moon Disaster" it strongly appeals to pathos and tries to help people feel optimistic and pushes further exploration of space even if a nation disaster had ensued. Next, in the commentary by Ayn Rand, it appeals to pathos and attempts to show the greatness of man-kind.
