People should appreciate the bravery and sacrifices these pilots made to venture into an unknown part of the galaxy where men had never set foot before. This mission inspired greatness among it's crew because many of the flight members had never been in space before, survived for 5 days in unstable conditions, and came home to a forever changed company. Apollo 13 was supposed to be a very trustworthy mission when it launched because they had test pilots who put themselves in danger all the time on the rockets.

He starts off saying that Dr. King was a very powerful man with nonviolent means. Throughout his writing he gives many example of why nonviolence will ultimately succeed over violent means, and give of many appeals of emotional, logical, creditable justification. Dr. King may have dies, but with his death only more power has come to the peaceful citizens of the world. The audience that Chavez is addressing is very familiar with Dr. King, and the troubles he went through so it is not hard at all to relate to the audience with ideas of Martin Luther King.
(Dennis 714) By giving the members of the space shuttle crew a recognition as “pioneers”, the speech was poised for a smooth transition from its nature as sincere eulogy into a rhetorical work with a deliberative occasion. As soon as audience received a message implying that Challenger was a beginning instead of an end and how discovery has its risk, Ronald Reagan was in a good position to elaborate his objectives on the space program. Surely, the transition between the bad news and the new hope is one of the greatest features of the speech. This transition is crucial to connect two parts of the speech that are equally important. Imagine if Ronald Reagan only talked about the heartache prior to expressing his support to NASA, people might question his sincerity and become suspicious about his real intention.

Also, Reagan recalls to the audience a sign he had seen which celebrated the Marshall Plan.

Reagan inspires a sense of pride and freedom inside the Berliners as they review what they have done – rebuilt their broken city into one which “ranks as one of the greatest on earth.” Then Reagan turns that pride and freedom into pity and a desire for justice by painting a new picture within their minds – this time of East Berlin’s oppression and poverty.

Because the author was a personal witness to the launch, she herself wanted to tell others why the launch was a great accomplishment for man. Since the subject was the Apollo 11 launch, she would be explaining a subject that most people know about, so she didn’t just talk about the the basics and facts, instead she explained in detail what happened and why it is so important. The audience of the Objectivist most likely value individualism, freedom, and reason just like Ayn which allows her to write in a way that satisfies her and not just in a way that satisfies others. How does the text appeal to ethos, pathos, and logos? This text appeals to ethos because we know that Ayn is a novelist and also partially created a publication called the Objectivist.
