All of these works were made possible by the
There were six other men and women on board the Challenger. At this time, space exploration was at its peak and all of America was following the space program. Throughout the day, most of the televisions in the nation were tuned to the Challenger launch. One minute and twelve seconds into the launch, the space shuttle exploded. Such a traumatic
While Armstrong was on the moon, his presence was also in almost every person's living room. 600 million people were watching his every move from 239,000 miles away. Just before dawn, Apollo 11 splashed down in the Pacific Ocean on July 24. As epic
The program was the third planned to land men on the moon and the seventh manned mission to space. The team was comprised of James Lovell Jr. as the acting commander, John Swigert Jr. as a pilot, and Fred Haise Jr. as the Lunar Module pilot. This team was confident in going to the moon and was determined not to let anything stop them. When one of their team members got sick less than a week before the launch, Swigert stepped up from the backup team. The team had been working together for months and the loss of a curtail member caused a tension and lack of trust in the team.
In Kennedy’s speech, he claimed that the United States would reach the moon by the end of the decade. He used multiple metaphors throughout the speech, he even compared the idea of space exploration to that of climbing Mount Everest.

JFK increased spending on the space program in order to try and get ahead in the space race. He was the first president to ask Congress for money to help land an American man onto the moon. On February 20, 1962, astronaut John Glenn orbited the Earth three times and safely landed in the Atlantic Ocean. After this accomplishment, the U.S. was now equal in space exploration to the Soviet Union. His actions and dedication to the space program eventually contributed to landing a man on the moon in 1969.
You will be shot into space and have to deal with flips, turns, and turbulance. When you get back to Earth you will document your experience on your travel to spaceWell, it is 400 meters tall and will give you the time of your life. When you are in the building to board the ride you will have balanced forces and a net force acting on your spacecraft. As you are going up the hill, you will accelerate and be a projectile as you go up the hill. You also have Newton’s 1st and 2nd Laws of motion working on you as well to keep you moving.
On July 20th, 1969, the Apollo 11 with astronaut Neil Armstrong and his crew, guided by thousands of NASA technicians, supposedly landed on the surface of the moon.
