Most people hope that maybe someday travelling to space for a vacation or living on a different planet would be possible. This brings us to another issue. As the world faces issues like climate change and overpopulation, it is becoming difficult to accommodate all the inhabitants of the earth due to lack of space and natural resources. It is therefore crucial for governments to help resolve this issue. Funding of space exploration could help us solve this problem by developing new technology that could perhaps replicate the earth’s atmospheric conditions on a different planet.
In this speech that I have written I am prepared to explain to you some possible benefits exploring space may bring to the united states and as well as tell you guys that it is ok to have great and big dreams. c. d. e. Transition: If we wish the reach are goals we must
Reagan takes a moment out of this speech to address the school children of America stating, “[To those] who were watching the live coverage of the shuttle 's takeoff. I know it 's hard to understand, 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. The future doesn 't belong to the fainthearted; it belongs to the brave.
Have you ever thought about space exploration? Do you think we should spend our valuable resources on it? Some people believe that we have a genetic desire to explore space. Although I believe that is false because our ancestors were doing absolutely fine without exploring space. We should not spend our valuable resources on space exploration.
By having the “more” repeated, Reagan expresses also that, despite this tragedy, the quest into space will not
(Dennis 714) By giving the members of the space shuttle crew recognition as “pioneers”, the speech had 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. Considering its effectiveness, 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.
But when the twentieth century was at the gates of new and historical events, that began to change. New discoveries shook the old certainties and paved away for questions about "where the universe came from?". One observation transformed our ideas about the true scale of the universe. It began with a mystery in the sky. By the early part of the twentieth century, it was well known that our solar system lay within a galaxy, the milky way.
Later that night President Ronald Reagan came on air to give the State of the Union address and talk on the tragedy that had just unfolded. Through this speech President Reagan consoles the families of those who lost their lives, the American schoolchildren, and the American public as a whole. He also gives this speech to reassure America of the viability of the NASA program and the light in the future. By the use of rhetorical skill, including analogy, strong emotional appeals, and his position of power, President Reagan manages to convince America that despite the tragedy the benefits of keeping a space exploration program greatly outweigh the losses.
If I asked you “What does NASA stand for?” you would probably say either “Need another seven astronauts” or “Need another shuttle also”. Today those jokes can’t be funny because NASA’s funding has been cut by congress, so they could probably use more astronauts and another space shuttle, but they don 't have the funding to hire more people and or keep up with today 's progress. NASA’s funding shouldn’t be cut by the government because NASA doesn’t have much money to support its educational programs, NASA also doesn’t have the funding to keep up with technology, so NASA can’t send anyone into space until 2021, and they won’t have the ability to keep up with the progress which will set them back generations. NASA has recently halted some of their educational programs due to budget cuts and American citizens are not happy.
(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.
(Main Idea): In the words of Stephen Hawking “Sooner or later disasters such as an asteroid collision or a nuclear war could wipe us all out. But once we spread out into space and establish independent colonies, our future should be safe.” We like it our not, the humans of the future will live in the space, and life outside earth might influence dramatically the way we look. (picture colony in mars)
In order to accomplish his purpose, the writer of this speech used diction and tone to show sorrow for the families of the men and women whose lives were lost on the Columbia and organized the speech by talking about how the lives lost will not affect moving forward in space advances. The writer expresses his grief for the family by using “great sadness” and naming the seven astronauts who died on this mission. While setting a tone of grief for these astronauts families, George W. Bush also organizes the speech by talking about how the men and women knew the risks of their travel. He first explains his feelings of loss and mourning for the men and women who lost their lives, but also says that this tragedy will not be a setback for space travel.
Space exploration has long been a debated topic. From the days where there was controversy between whether the universe revolved around the Earth, because god made humans special, to whether Copernicus’s idea that the Earth and the other planets of the solar system revolve around the sun was true. Then there was the space race where there was a dilemma based on what was ethical to be produced and sent to space (such as weaponry during the cold war). The more contemporary problem involves the exploration of space and the danger that space debris poses. We must accept however that space is our back-up plan if we were to exploit the Earth to such an extent that we could no longer survive here.
