Emma Lang Mr. Miller Class #2 Rosetta Mission Research Paper 2/19/18 Rosetta Mission Have you ever wondered what it would be like to travel 4 billion miles into space in a different atmosphere to discover a dark and dusty comet? The mission of comet 67P/C-G was to accompany it into the solar system, they did this by deploying the philae lander with the help of NASA and making this the first controlled comet. This mission helped scientists begin to understand the changes in the season as the comet left the inner solar system on its outbound leg. The history, current perceptions, and future implications of the Rosetta Mission all help scientists with the understanding of the origins of solar system life and earth. The journey of the
According to Gizmodo.com, if Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin were to have been stranded on the Moon, president Richard Nixon would have given a speech which began with, “Fate has ordained that the men who went to the moon to explore in peace will stay on the moon to rest in peace.” There was a 0.1% chance of that happening but, NASA still planned for it. If you do some math, it took 9 years after President Kennedy announced to put a man on the Moon by the end of the decade. That 's almost 78840 hours! Every aspect of the Apollo 11 mission was carefully planned, including the rocket. THE ROCKET
The Space Shuttle was a partially reusable launch system and orbital spacecraft operated by the U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) for human spaceflight missions. The system combined rocket launch, orbital spacecraft, and re-entry spaceplane with modular add-ons. The first of four orbital test flights occurred in 1981 leading to operational flights beginning in 1982. It was used on a total of 135 missions from 1981 to 2011 all launched from the Kennedy Space Center, Florida. Major missions included launching numerous satellites, interplanetary probes, the Hubble Space Telescope (HST), conducting space science experiments, and constructing and servicing the International Space Station.
His legacy will be remembered throughout all of history, being the first man to walk on the moon. His country was given a boom of curiosity for space exploration. Personal Life Neil Armstrong was born on August 5 1930 in Wapakoneta Ohio. He was the eldest of three children. By the age of six Armstrong was already intrigued by airplanes, and he went on to take his first ride in one 10 years later when he got his pilot license.
government actions during the beginning of the space race was the establishment of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). A few short months after Sputnik the U.S. attempted to launch its own Vanguard satellite. The rocket lifted off the pad at Cape Canaveral, FL and blew up shortly after. It was clear that the U.S. needed a more organized approach to winning the race against Russia. Therefore, President Eisenhower signed the National Aeronautics and Space Act in 1958, which established NASA as America’s leading entity in in space utilization.
Rhetorical Analysis on JFK Gone to the Moon Speech The Gone to the Moon Speech was written by John F. Kennedy and announced on the day of May 25, 1961. The speech was given the title Gone to the Moon because Kennedy wanted the first man to be sent to the moon and surface the moon in achievement. It was the foundational standpoint for technology to advance. JFK uses logos, ethos, and pathos to relay his statement in a unique way to connect with the audience. It was the “official” start of the era of new technology.
Ray Bradbury’s 1950 dystopian novel, The Rocket is a short science fiction classic based on a man who fantasizes of travelling to space. This futuristic tale communicates, how anyone is authorized to travel to space without any prior experience and preparation on how to operate and navigate a rocket. The story of the The Rocket, is based during a more advanced time in the future as anyone at that time is able to fly to space as long as they have money to support their trip, the protagonist is a father, named Fiorello who wants to bring his family to space, but to do that he must save a lot of money as the trips are far too expensive, nobody believes that he will be able to accomplish this task and even when people are that it’s impossible
It requires a lot of hard work and dedication, and includes a minimum of four years in college. Mankind has always had an obsession with flying. The Wright brothers made the first airplane that was able to fly and land on its own power, and after WWII mankind become obsessed with reaching the moon. In 1969 Neil Armstrong did just that. All of these works were made possible by the
Not as many space exploration breakthroughs have happened since those big ones, but those are the ones that shaped modern astronomer’s views of space. When the average person thinks of space the first thing they think of are probably the manned space missions, so a look into the past space missions seemed in order. “On July 29, 1955 the White House proudly announced that the United states would launch ‘History’s first artificial Earth satellite’ some time between July, 1957 and December, 1958 as part of the International Geophysical Year.” (William F. Mellberg). This satellite could help
It depicted the power of static electricity and magnetic field as well as earth’s frequency. I watched as a spaceship was discovered which could travel from one frequency to another. I was spell-bound myself. I thought the earth has a frequency, if we change that frequency, we will reach to another dimension, and beyond. I was further inspired when I saw the movie “Apollo-13” and it laid down the foundation of my desire to build a career based on outer space.
