Ray Bradbury is a renowned author famous for his short science fiction stories and his novel "Fahrenheit 421". His works have inspired many and raised numerous questions about what the future may hold. He's quoted as saying "I don't try to describe the future. I try to prevent it." (Bradbury), and in many ways you can see the motif of this mindset in his work.
From the early ages, Space and the concept of Space Exploration has retained a notion of mystique and intrigue ever since the first astrologists gazed up at the stars. With the launch of Apollo 11, Neil Armstrong became the first person to ever step on the moon. Many years of struggle as well as many lives being lost has only led to greater discoveries but the sacrifices that were made will always be mourned and remembered. And despite the risks, the notion of space travel has led us to many different discoveries and truths about the galaxy. The aims of the space program today should be centered around obtaining the brightest of mankind, to get them involved, provide safety, and continue to fulfill the treaty which “bans the use of placing
Humans have impacted the global environment significantly. Human populations have rapidly increased for the past few centuries. Imagine a world where sustenance is rare but people are plenty. Imagine the world where everyone's shoulders are touching one another and there is no room to move. “A Modest Proposal” by Jonathan Swift is an extremely sarcastic solution to a problem plaguing Ireland in the 1720s overpopulation.
As the world went into Anthropocene, the disscussion of the relationship between human and natural became more frequnt than in before. Human being and the inviroment are not isolation based on the theory of Anthropocene, ont he opposite, they art related and effect each other. Mmany authors write literature article based on this new-coming topic, and showed their special undestanding towards it.
We might not have the things we have today if we didn't take the risk that comes with it. Reagon said "but sometimes painful things like this happen. It's all part of the process of exploration and discovery. It's all part of taking a chance and expanding man's horizons." (29) We send people into space to learn more about what's out there
In the same way nature and human kinds are closely related and cannot be separated; or cannot deny the presence of one another. At the Anthropocene epoch, humankind seems to have control over the nature in some extent, despite that nature wait its time and respond how it’s been treated. At this epoch “human-kind has caused mass extinctions of the planet and animal species, polluted the oceans and altered the atmosphere” (Stromberg, np). Moreover, in “The Mutant at Horn Creek” the author shows how humankind will alter the natural world and its effect in the

I. Introduction a. Now let me tell you one thing, are you satisfied with how our world is. If we were to stop all research and development of new technologies, would that sit well with you? I am not ok with this because I for see a vast and great future for our nation and this future is set to begin in the stars. Our nation the United States needs to boost its efforts in the exploration of outer space and as well as be the front runner in this pursuit for new knowledge. b.
“Our planet is a lonely speck in the great enveloping cosmic dark. In our obscurity, in all this vastness, there is no hint that help will come from elsewhere to save us from ourselves.” -- Carl Sagan, Pale Blue Dot, 1994. Almost 22 years later, these the impactful words have motivated six million people.. and counting. The coming of the new millennium has pushed new and old generations to learn from the past and mend present day issues.
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”.
Hundreds of years ago, people used to believe that the earth was flat, but with the research and technology, we were able to find out that it is a perfect sphere. Aliens run along those same lines. Even with all the technology today, there is still no definite answer if we are alone in this massive universe or not. There is so much controversy weather or not aliens exist.
Alternatively, there are other dangers out there that other systems do face, such as singularities (black holes), gamma ray bursts (bursts of lethal radiation), and possibly hostile life forms (aliens!). All things considered, mankind is resilient, diligent, and with the instinct of survival, anything can be accomplished. New technologies and mapping will prevent losses to the universe. Humans need a new planet to colonize and spread out upon to better support our growing needs. According to Dr. Klein “I believe the same is true about societies, civilizations and governments.
Evolution is the development and change within heritable traits of different populations over generations. Over the years, humans have begun to invent things and change around their environment (the world) to suit their needs. With this is mind, we humans have not been paying attention to how these changes are affecting our evolution as a species. We are cheating natural selection with the design of medicines and medical procedures that allow us to live longer.
