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
He also designed technology for military during his time there. One famous example is IGOR, the Intercept Ground Optical Recorder, a super camera used in the White Sands Missile Range for 30 years. In 1955 he taught astronomy at New Mexico State University until his retirement from teaching in 1973. Tombaugh was one of the most prominent astronomers to have reported seeing unidentified flying objects (UFOs) and support the idea of extraterrestrial life. One sighting took place in New Mexico in 1948.
The hotspot causes active volcanos, but as they move away they become less active. Second, Yellowstone doesn't have any volcanos above ground like Hawaii. The super volcano is under all the attractions. Yellowstone does get earthquakes frequently. When a earthquake hits that's high on Richter scale people fear that the super volcano could erupt, but the chances of it erupting are very low.
He has helped test many machines to make space exploration possible and be able to learn about the universe. For example, in the article, How did Neil Armstrong change the world?, it says, “Neil Armstrong changed the world by becoming the first man in history to successfully pilot a spacecraft to land safely on the lunar surface and then walk on the moon.” This tells us how this event changed how space exploration is and the machines to run it. Also he helped teach and advance the technology used for space exploration. As said in the article Neil Armstrong by A+E Networks, it states, “...he joined the faculty of the University of Cincinnati as a professor of aerospace engineering.” Which shows how he helped space exploration to help us to learn
Pluto, a planet that is only known to the average huan as the reject planet (once the ninth planet of our solar system,but now catorgized as a dwarf planet) and no thing else. So because of this lack of knowlegede scientist at NASA made a spacecraft named New Horizon to find anymore information on Pluto via flyby scan. After 9 and a half years hardship the spacecraft reached its destination. When the spacecraft sent information to the scientist on the dwarf planet scientist were dumbfounded on the output data. New discoveries were found on the once ninth planet and some don 't know what to do.
I believe the Seven World Wonders should be the ISS, The Large Hadron Collider, Christ the Redeemer, Internet, Rome Colosseum, The Great Wall of China, and the Mars Exploration. Those Seven World Wonders truly makeup society today. The ISS (International Space Station) its amazing we have something the size of a “football field” floating around in space, with people living in it for months at a time. The ISS is benefiting life on earth in many ways, but there is one in specific I would like to discuss, a tiny hut village in sub-Saharan Africa, drinkable water is vigorous for human survival. Unfortunately, many people around the world lack access to clean water.
Galactic News: It 's an honor to be talking to you today Mr. Sunce. May I ask you how you became a star? Mr. Sunce: Well you see, I didn 't exactly have parents like you human folk. I came from a solar nebula, which as you probably know is a giant, rotating cloud of gas and dust. When gravity caused it to collapse, it started to spin even faster and flattened into a disk.
According to the Apollo 11 Surface Operations Overview, the Apollo 11 astronauts had many tasks to perform during extravehicular activity. For one, they collected many samples that are still around today. All of their samples were collected successfully. NASA.gov shows how Michael Collins orbited the moon while Armstrong and Aldrin were on the moon. Imagine how peaceful it must have been!
The moon has orbited the earth for over 4 billion years. Many scientists hold different opinions on how the moon was really formed. There are three main thoughts on how the moon was formed, these being:the giant impact theory, the co-formation theory and the capture theory. But the question still remains, how was the moon created? The giant impact theory, Space.com thinks that the giant impact theory is probably the most valid of the three,this theory holds the idea that the as earth orbited the sun in its early days it collided with many other smaller objects (asteroids) that were travelling through space at the time, and absorbed them into its growing mass.
Intermediate cratering was smaller asteroids and debris smashing into the moon, creating smaller craters in the surface of the mare. From this time, until today, ray cratering has been taking place (Evolution of the Moon. 2012). These are the craters that have bright rays coming off of them. Lunar exploration began when the Soviets’ Luna flew by the moon in 1959.
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.
The people of ancient Pompeii had no idea they would become part of history for having a world famous volcanic eruption. Even though the rich lived differently than the poor, in the city of Pompeii, Mount Vesuvius did not discriminate against any of its citizens. When Mount Vesuvius erupted, no one in its path survived. In the twenty feet of ash and debris, the artifacts were perfectly preserved until they were discovered in the mid 1700s. Compared to other ancient cities, Pompeii was very advanced.
Galbraith mentioned Fermi’s Paradox, which instantly peaked my interest. He described it as a theory stating there are billions of stars in our universe, and eventually different planets started to develop, so their must be other planets like Earth out there somewhere. The question is why haven’t we found them. Galbraith mentioned that because we have had trouble with sustainability outside of our own atmosphere, maybe other Earth-like planets are in the same boat as we are. This paradox got me thinking about space travel, and if we will be able to visit other planets like Earth one day.
NASA bumped him down to the Apollo 14 mission - which was the 5th space capsule to land on the moon with human life forms inside - because they said he needed more time to train. They launched Alan Shepard, Edgar Mitchell and Stuart Roosa in Apollo 14 on January 31, 1971. They landed safely enough with just a few minor setbacks, something that NASA always seemed to have at one point or another. Shepard and one of his crew members, Ed Mitchell, went on the moonwalk to find more geological samples even though Shepard made it very clear to a number of geologists that rocks weren’t important to him. When Shepard and Mitchell landed on the moon in January, they managed an impressive amount of science work, but they soon grew more confused as to where they were.
