The article, “Man Takes First Steps on the Moon,” by the Times is effective. It is effective because of all the information it gives to the audience. In the article it states, ‘“The moment of touchdown was one of the moments of greatest drama in the history of man.” The purpose was to announce to the audience the greatest moment of time and they did. 12 minutes after it was accomplished almost the entire world knew about it. They accomplished their purpose which makes this text effective.
Arguably, Kennedy’s most influential legacy for the emerging American space program was his portrayal of space as the final frontier. The continuation of Turner’s Frontier Thesis through a national space effort appealed to America’s nostalgic pioneering heritage and provided the country with a revived sense of identity and national unity through a new era of exploration. In his address at Rice University, Kennedy utilized frontier imagery to invoke a parallel between conquering the wilderness and exploring outer space: “Space is there, and we 're going to climb it, and the moon and the planets are there, and new hopes for knowledge and peace are there. And therefore, as we set sail we ask God 's blessing on the most hazardous and dangerous
Drayden Sharifi Per. 2 4/19/16 Dr. Trevor Speech/Debate Historical Speech Background I have chosen one of John F. Kennedy’s most influential speeches, which many people say, still resonates today. His “We choose to go to the moon,” speech. This speech would completely shape where the United States was going in the following decade. He started an exploration of space 60 years ago and that strive for knowing more is still with us today.
His inclusion of analogies and emotional appeals, combined with his strong sense of authority, brings his arguments into focus and gives them a punch. His power in delivering this speech quite possibly kept America looking towards the stars and propelled them into the next age of space exploration. President Reagan’s speech serves as a touching conclusion to a tragic event. Despite the terrible catastrophe, Reagan’s four-minute speech provided closure on the one-minute tragedy whose impact will be felt for
You know that time your friend told your little secret well this secret is a lot bigger. So half of America could not keep a secret that big. Some people say that the film used in the camera on the Moon should have melted but scientist could have used a cover for it. If the astronauts made it to Moon and they didn’t melt, then the material used for their suit could have been used to make a cover for the film. The people who don’t believe the landings were real, think the radiation ring around the Moon is too strong for astronauts to survive.
He was a hero because he did a very dangerous job. Thanks to him, we all believe that humans can be achieve in great things, we can learn about our place among the stars. He made us believe that we can fly, we can change the world. He help solved the science problem and make
The repetition of the idea of the wellbeing of America shows that the voyage into space is an essential part of the future, and essential for the welfare of America. In the same note, Johnson also used an antimetabole to convey his message as an important one. Antimetabole is demonstrated by Johnsons reversing the order of “free”, thus implying that if America’s space program is efficient, then America will be prosperous. Most of all, since Johnson held the highest position of office his approval created a major source of credibility. Johnson in a way gave NASA the benefit of ethos, which in turn led to an enormous societal impact.
With the new changes scientists are still calling Pluto a dwarf (planet) but why get so complicated just call it a planet. As we explore space beyond Pluto we might have to re-categorize and re-evaluate our solar system. With all the attention scientist have given to Pluto about not being a planet anymore they forgot about Pluto and all of its planet like characteristics. Pluto has a moon just like all the other planets. Scientists are calling Pluto a “Dwarf”, but size isn’t everything because great things come in small packages.
In 1969, the first person landed on the moon. One of the astronauts that walked on this faraway planet made a famous speech, “This is one small step for man, and one giant leap for mankind.” This was a huge event for America and for the world, but do we need to remember it and study it forever? Since that historic day, hundreds of rockets have gone into space. We have explored other planets, including Mars, and I am sure that as technology advances, someday people will live on other planets. So, shouldn’t we be learning about science and how to make progress, instead of looking back at the old days when it was a miracle to just to go to the moon?
Information more valuable than a satellite could ever obtain (Space Race). The choice made by John F. Kennedy to place a man on the moon opened an endless realm of possibilities for space exploration, while simultaneously uniting and boosting the morale of the American people together. After the long-lasting fight of World War II, the only two great powers that were left in the world were the United States and the Soviet Union. Both countries differed in many ways. For example, they were dissimilar economically, politically, and culturally.

In John F. Kennedy’s speech “We Choose to go to the Moon” he uses repetition, figurative language, personification and other literary devices to enhance the point he’s trying to get across. He also makes it sound like the whole country is in this together and everyone is a part of this huge project. In this speech JFK announces that America has now funded the space expedition to the moon. He’s trying to persuade the people that this was the right move for the country. An example of personification in this speech is when JFK says “ For the eyes of the world now look into space”(online).
