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
As we meet the challenges of space exploration, we gain valuable technology. Space exploration is also an exciting adventure. Space science has advanced knowledge in other scientific fields, such as physics. For example, observations of the Moon and other bodies in space helped scientists understand how gravity works. Scientists figured out that the same force that causes an object to fall to the ground causes the Moon to orbit Earth.
One of the many ideas brought up by the article is to launch reflective heat resistant disks that are 155 miles in diameter, and weigh a grand total of 200,000 tons or 400,000,000 pounds. The discs are meant to be able to reflect the sun’s solar rays toward Mars warming up the planet and releasing greenhouse gases that would form an atmosphere. An interesting idea without a doubt, but would need an abounding amount of resources, money, and time to build and launch. Furthermore, another theory for terraforming is the redirection of an asteroid. They plan to do this by strapping nuclear rockets to an amnesia heavy asteroid and launching into Mars causing the greenhouse gases to rise forming an atmosphere.
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
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
The speech accomplished what it was after because NASA got a man on the moon in 1969, but JFK never got to see the event. Even though he never saw the event, any speech can be compared to his “We Chose to go to the Moon” because every speech has a purpose and uses rhetorical components in some way that benefits the speaker. Pathos, ethos, and logos were used so that the audience gets the speaker what he/she wants. That was the same as what Kennedy did through his speech. At the end of the speech Kennedy again, talks about how people spent money on tobacco products instead of the space program.
First and foremost, it allows competition to develop between companies, which increases opportunity for growth. Additionally, unlike the current space programs that government controlled, companies are not bound to a specific country, which lowers international tensions regarding space. Another benefit is the reduction of the government space budget. NASA's 2017 budget was nineteen billion dollars. While the amount is a small fraction of the total Federal budget, it has no monetary return on the investment, which leads to controversy over money being wasted.
Space settlement was planned by an idea of “extinction of humans” in coming years by “Garudam Lee”. So, all together we can define a space settlement as a home in space providing all needs like in earth. Just one difference will be that we are living in a home in space but not on earth. Practically it is very much difficult to build a space colony. For building a space colony there are many requirements needed.
The expansion of space exploration come benefits. One of the first benefits of space exploration is the technology that we would have. One of the most direct benefits is that space exploration can make new jobs for people and take them to new places. Education can benefit by space exploration it can find new elements it can also add to new science and information to the world. Education has already benefits some from space exploration.
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
