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
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
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.
Apollo 11 Nearly 600 million people heard Neil Armstrong say, “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind,” as he made history on July 24, 1969. (NASA.gov) The Apollo 11 Mission is recognized all over the world and is remembered as one of mankind’s greatest achievements. It required meticulous planning, hard training, and extreme precision. Even the rocket was innovative and brought humanity to greater heights than ever before. The Apollo 11 Mission 's effects will never be forgotten.. PLANNING The Apollo 11 Mission required meticulous planning that began the second John F. Kennedy presented the challenge putting a man on the moon in 1961.
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.
Kennedy famously urged America “We choose to go to the moon in this decade, not because it is easy, but because it is hard” The country, along with the rest of the world was enthralled by the possibilities of space exploration. Dinner conversations with World War II veterans in attendance, amplified that a new conflict had begun; the world’s two great powers, the democratic and capitalist United States was in a Cold War against the communist Soviet Union. I recall hearing from my elders that each country was seeking to prove superiority in military and technology and that space would be another dramatic arena for this competition. Sputnik, was a word of foreign extraction, heard in an unpleasant and
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.
The Space Race (1950-1960s), was an event that has influenced many generations of human race. In the Second half of the twentieth century, the world’s leading power, the United States of America and the Union of Socialist Republics (USSR) were engaged in a global competition, also known as the cold war, where they were trying to influence “non aligned” nations to take a side in the war. Military, political, scientific and diplomatic effort would affect the balance of power in the world, the loser will fall and will lost the ability to control his sphere of influence. Both nations went to the moon, however only the USA made it back to the Earth. The Space Race has revolutionized the world, people 's societal views , and helped humanity in several
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.
The first program to run on a computer was developed by Fredric Williams and Tom Kilburn, where they built the first electronic random access memory to run a program in 1948 (Timeline of Computers, 1948). The computer made its way to the United States when the first Univac 1 computer was delivered to the US Census Bureau in 1952. These computers weighed over twenty-nine thousand pounds and were priced at more than one million dollars each. The main market for these computers were insurance companies, utilities, and military use. By 1962, the first guidance computer system for a missile was developed, the Minuteman I, which calculated the position in flight.
