On 12 August 1985 JAL flight 123, which was a Boeing 747, lifted off from Haneda Tokyo International Airport for Osaka airport, some 215 miles away, at 6:12 p.m. After a normal takeoff the airplane reached its cruising altitude of 7200m, 12 minutes into the flight there were 2 explosions. The first explosion occurred when the aircraft’s aft pressure bulkhead ruptured causing an explosive decompression. The decompression caused the pressurized air from the cabin to rush out of the airplane which caused the vertical stabilizer of the aircraft to be ripped off, this caused the second explosion. The decompression also caused all four hydraulic lines of the aircraft to be cleaved. Oxygen masks for the passengers were deployed as the decompression
Summary: In March 1988, Avianca flight 410 crashed into the mountains after taking off from a Columbian airport killing all passengers and crew aboard. Upon investigation, it was found that the cause for accident was due to controlled flight into terrain. This was precipitated by poor teamwork and cockpit distractions, including non-flying personnel present in the cockpit. Evaluation: Information was posted on Dec 2009 quite recent so it makes the information and content very current. This book gives quite reliable information about the
In 2007, Danny Boyle created a movie that could represent the future of the earth. In Sunshine, the sun is dying, which jeopardizes all life on Earth. The Sun warms the seas, generates the weather patterns, and gives energy to the growing plants that provide the food and oxygen for life on Earth. In Sunshine, the plot follows the 8 person crew of the Icarus II. In 2050, Icarus is the name given to the first human space mission to approach the sun in order to place a bomb into it and reignite it so that it doesn 't die out.
What is the Space Race? The Space Race, a competition which grew out of the cold war with both sides wishing to exploit propaganda and military benefits of making the first forays beyond the Earth’s surface and atmosphere It lasted from 1955 to 1972. The USSR won the early victories of this race. It put Sputnik 1 in space on October 4, 1957, along with the first man in space (Yuri A. Gagarin) on April 12, 1961. After that, President John F. Kennedy announced in May 1961 that within a decade, an American would land on a moon and came safely home.
The transmitter was powered by silver-zinc batteries and last for a time period of 22 days before dying out. Sputnik took an estimate of 98 minutes to orbit the earth on its indirect path and after an estimate of three months; the artificial satellite fell into the Earth’s atmosphere and burned up (Garbor, 2007). Sputnik-1 was referred to as “the mouse that roared” for although it could do no more than orbit the earth and broadcast radio blips which did not have much meaning, it was able to shock the world and had a great impact globally, especially in the United States. This is because no one expected the Soviets to achieve it first. Researchers were able to restructure the atmospheric density as the satellite elevated even though Sputnik did not carry scientific instruments.
After the report of explosion in lunar module giving result in lack of oxygen, excess of CO2 because of poor filtration and lack of energy, the control tower team was having a huge task. They have to work together by using the maximum of the expertise to develop the new navigation procedure and they also have to test these procedures too. After that they have to communicate with the first team (three members of Apollo 13) about the newly developed and tested navigation procedures. It was only the good teamwork which makes able the control tower team to do the task of three months in only three days. What is the significance of the phrase "failure is not an option?"
We are flying way too low. Oh my God we are flying way too low. Oh my god!” It was said at 8:46 A.M.before it crashed into the North Tower of the World Trade Center. On the “United Airlines Flight 175” people tried to revolt against the terrorists but they eventually failed and many got stabbed. “American Flight 77” took off from Washington at 8:20 A.M. then it crashed into the pentagon at 9:37 A.M. killed 125 people.
When I was ten, I went on a boy scout camping trip, and got lost. For two hours, I was stuck in the forest with only a water bottle, three granola bars, and a whistle. But this is nothing compared to what Mark Watney faces during his fight for survival on Mars. Mark Watney (engineer and botanist of Ares 3) with his crew of five other people (Beck, Martinez, Vogel, Lewis, and Johanssen), is on Mars, left behind by his crew on accident after a strong wind storm. The crew leaves him behind after presuming him dead, and take the MAV (Mars Ascent Vehicle) with them.
Said Bonbo and Niome. They have made it to the end of the year, time to go in that rocket ship. It was August 24, the day they were flying off to outer space. They all got on the spaceship and well it was a little tight but it was ok. Jeff was driving the spaceship and it had not been tested before , and they were 2 days into the trip and had found no planet's. They were in the middle of the oort cloud, Then the rocket ship has started to make funny noises.
Efecan Oral 11/11/15 Popular Science Writing Assignment “Space Junk” Threat and Solution We have been launching satellites for over 50 years now and like retired NASA senior scientist Donald Kessler said “We have lost control of the environment” already. As a result of the near 5000 launches of communication, weather forecast, television and navigation satellites since the start of the space age, result with the potentially damaging space debris that orbits Earth. Scientists estimate the total number of space debris objects in orbit to be around 29,000 for sizes larger than 10 centimeters, 670,000 larger than 1 centimeter and more than 170 million larger than 1 millimeter and like we learnt in the class as a result of their extreme momentum any of these objects can cause harm to all space vehicles, but particularly to the International Space Station, space shuttles and spacecraft with humans aboard. These objects are travelling at 27,000 kilometers per hour around our Earth in a form of free fall therefore even flecks of paint can cause an potential damage to space activities. After some serious incidents like the second flight of the Space Shuttle Challenger, a fleck of paint caused a serious problem for the shuttle, NASA started to track more than 22,000 objects larger than 5 centimeters wide.
