JFK increased spending on the space program in order to try and get ahead in the space race. He was the first president to ask Congress for money to help land an American man onto the moon. On February 20, 1962, astronaut John Glenn orbited the Earth three times and safely landed in the Atlantic Ocean. After this accomplishment, the U.S. was now equal in space exploration to the Soviet Union. His actions and dedication to the space program eventually contributed to landing a man on the moon in 1969.
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.
Bo Maiellaro Dr. Hasty 9th LIT 2B Assassination Paper Many people know about the assassination of John F. Kennedy. What day it was on, where he was, and who he was with. But did you know that the main suspect for the murder, Lee Harvey Oswald, was also assassinated two days after the killing of John F. Kennedy. Lee Harvey Oswald’s assassination by Jack Ruby was unjustified because he did not have the ability to defend himself, however, the killing of Oswald exposed the idea that the assassination was a much more organized plan to end JFK’s presidency. It had been only 48 hours and 7 minutes since the assassination of John F. Kennedy when nightclub owner Jack Ruby killed Lee Harvey Oswald.
On July 20th, 1969, the Apollo 11 with astronaut Neil Armstrong and his crew, guided by thousands of NASA technicians, supposedly landed on the surface of the moon. It was certainly one of the most extraordinary events accomplished by mankind up to that date. Neil Armstrong’s first words upon stepping on the moon surface will always be remembered “ A small step for mankind, a giant leap for humanity”. Ever since then, this achievement has been a matter of discussion by several groups that either believed or disbelieved this. There are people who believe that the entire moon landing was “ The greatest government conspiracy of all time”.
Sadly, none of the five survived. Later that night President Ronald Reagan came on air to give the State of the Union address and talk on the tragedy that had just unfolded. 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.
It seems that there are three main points in this section, including The Watergate Scandal, escalating the Vietnam War and the slight rise and huge fall of us return. During the election of 1968, the republican party felt as if they had no choose but let Richard Nixon return and try again as president. Nixon made a huge promise to end the Vietnam war so he was elected as the president again. Nixon started off with two positives which were the Woodstock festival did not turn into a bloodbath and the celebration of the first man on the moon. I found it very funny how Nixon thought it was best to escalated the war instead of making it smaller.
The English epic, Beowulf, takes place in the Anglo-Saxon period where a tale of a hero named Beowulf is celebrated. “Explosion of the Space Shuttle Challenger: Address to the Nation” is a speech devised by former President Ronald Reagan about the tragic death of the members of the Challenger Seven space crew. The crew members of the Challenger are similar to Beowulf because they both display courage. Although they both plunge into dangerous situations, Beowulf is more heroic than the members of the Challenger because during his hour of need, Beowulf is forlorn by his own warriors, but continues to fight on as though nothing can possibly stop him. To begin with, Beowulf is similar to the members of the Challenger Seven space crew because
But let us begin.” (Kennedy). On November 27, 1963, Lyndon Baines Johnson delivered his speech, Let Us Continue, to memorialize the untimely death of his predecessor, the late President John F. Kennedy. Lamented President Kennedy was described as "the greatest leader of our time" and the new President Johnson would not only have to commemorate his forerunner, but also convince the American nation to continue on without him (Johnson). He involved a number of emotional appeals to persuade his audience to overcome and conquer their adversity. President Lyndon B. Johnson strived to continue the works of President Kennedy, but his speech indicated that he could not do so without the assistance and engagement of the American people.
What is the Space Race? The Space Race, a competition which grew out of the cold war with both sides wishing to exploit propaganda and military benefits of making the first forays beyond the Earth’s surface and atmosphere It lasted from 1955 to 1972. The USSR won the early victories of this race. It put Sputnik 1 in space on October 4, 1957, along with the first man in space (Yuri A. Gagarin) on April 12, 1961. After that, President John F. Kennedy announced in May 1961 that within a decade, an American would land on a moon and came safely home.
He was assassinated in Dallas, Texas, on November 22, 1963 by a communist sympathizer named Lee Oswald. President Kennedy was shot in the head and neck while being driven to his next speaking place. However, President Kennedy did not die until reaching Parkland Memorial hospital. Lee Oswald was later killed by Jack Ruby, this sparked many conspiracies concerning Kennedy’s death. However, the official report asserted that Oswald was not in league with another person when he assassinated
The beginning of the Space Race began with the Soviet Union’s successful launch of Sputnik in October of 1957. Shortly after in 1961, President John F. Kennedy gave his famous space exploration speech to Congress. In it, he asked for more resources so that the United States could send a man to the moon and bring him back to Earth safely before the decade was out. With the Soviet Union being the first initially in every major milestone, the United States knew it needed to respond quickly. President Kennedy’s speech to Congress kicked off one of the most expensive and ambitious adventures this country has ever done.
I believe that it is hard to correctly pin point the absolute reason why he was assassinated considering the fact that the only suspect they had in the case of J.F.K was shot and killed. Lee Harvey Oswald was a pretty accurate suspect considering the fact that Oswald bought a gun just days before the assassination and had been to Russia. Lyndon B. Johnson benefitted from J.F.K’s assassination because he was sworn into office, shortly after the president died. J.F.K. wanted to avoid conflict between countries and didn’t want to go to war.
There are more than a few popular conspiracy theories on how JFK was assassinated, speculations of who maybe was involved. Although the warren commision came to the conclusion that Oswald acted alone. The Warren commission 's decided to not look further into the murder case of John.F kennedy, this led to individuals carrying out all sorts of John.F kennedy assassination theories to circulate. On November 22,1963 at the Dealey plaza in Texas, John.F Kennedy was riding in the back of a moving vehicle
An astronaut named Yuri Gagarin was launched in space, known as the first man outside the Earth’s orbit in the spacecraft Vostok I. These incidents hurt the pride and ego that caused the American’s to take a step at such drastic measures even though they faced many failures in the space race. The events in the space race still continue… After this incident years went by and finally the day arrived where America will take the upper hand. Apollo 11 was launched into space in July 20th, 1965. The space craft was named The Eagle.
