In Kennedy’s speech, he claimed that the United States would reach the moon by the end of the decade. He used multiple metaphors throughout the speech, he even compared the idea of space exploration to that of climbing Mount Everest. One of his most famous lines from this speech is, “We choose to go to the moon. We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard”. This quote from his speech is an example of the usage of Pathos, in the fact that it provokes an emotional response from his audience.
Fiorello believed that he could get to space by saving all his money and after six years, Fiorello accomplished his goal. To explain my point, you can see that when everybody is telling Fiorello that he cannot do it, or that this task is impossible, he still has the perseverance to keep going and finally accomplish his goal. A quote from The Rocket, which illustrates my point is when Fiorello says, ““Old man, I’ve saved three thousand dollars. It took me six years to save it. For my business, to invest in machinery.
He’s sits in his couch and thinking about the great life that he had before. It’s very relatable because you have those moments where you think to yourself I wish I can go back to this day because it was the best day of my life.

Through this speech President Reagan consoles the families of those who lost their lives, the American schoolchildren, and the American public as a whole. He also gives this speech to reassure America of the viability of the NASA program and the light in the future. By the use of rhetorical skill, including analogy, strong emotional appeals, and his position of power, President Reagan manages to convince America that despite the tragedy the benefits of keeping a space exploration program greatly outweigh the losses.
“30 minutes before the explosion, at 30 hours and 40 minutes, Apollo 13 had made the normal midcourse correction, which would take it out of a free-return-to-earth trajectory and put it on lunar landing.” The crew couldn’t go to sleep because the temperatures in the space shuttle went haywire which caused the temperature in the shuttle to be freezing cold.

At that time, various exit visas were denied for other Soviet Jews who wished to immigrate. In May 1979, they were granted their official exit visas and were allowed to leave the country for the United States. The father is now a mathematics professor at the University of Maryland and the mother is now a researcher at NASA. The little boy was 6 when he was brought to this very land and is forever thankful that his father moved them here and that the United States would accept them.
Ray Bradbury (August 22, 1920 – June 5, 2012) was an American fantasy, science fiction, horror and mystery fiction author. In his works Bradbury brought up various problems, concerning scientific progress as well as personal interaction in modern society. One of these problems is relationship between children and adults. In a short story “The Rocket” the writer depicts trusting and caring relationship between Fiorello Bodoni, a poor junkyard owner, who spends his nights admiring nearby rocket launches bound for the Moon, Venus and Mars, and his family.In the world created by Bradbury a trip to other planet is something only a wealthy person can afford. Eventually Fiorello manages to save some money that would be enough to pay for a trip for one person.
The 1969 Apollo 11 mission garnered global attention in allowing man to take the first steps on the moon. With such a feat came worldwide responses from popular magazines and authors, each commending the event to an extent.

Following the Times articles is Ayn Rand’s The July 16.1969, Launch: A Symbol of Man’s Greatness article in which she narrates the launch, emphasizing man’s potential. The last response is Herblock’s cartoon, Transported.
After the report of explosion in lunar module giving result in lack of oxygen, excess of CO2 because of poor filtration and lack of energy, the control tower team was having a huge task. They have to work together by using the maximum of the expertise to develop the new navigation procedure and they also have to test these procedures too. After that they have to communicate with the first team (three members of Apollo 13) about the newly developed and tested navigation procedures. It was only the good teamwork which makes able the control tower team to do the task of three months in only three days. What is the significance of the phrase "failure is not an option?"
One of the greatest space mission is the third mission to land on the Moon, Apollo 13. The Apollo 13 mission to the moon may have been the most miraculous event in history.

Their oxygen tanks exploded!
The space craft was named The Eagle. After 3 days of voyage in the space The Eagle finally landed on the moon making its name in history. Neil Armstrong was the very first man to step on the moon; his very first lines were “That 's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind”. This quote meant that even though it is just a one step taken by man but it has changed our lives and science forever. This was a huge success for American’s and if we look back many failures had occurred.
