According to Gizmodo.com, if Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin were to have been stranded on the Moon, president Richard Nixon would have given a speech which began with, “Fate has ordained that the men who went to the moon to explore in peace will stay on the moon to rest in peace.” There was a 0.1% chance of that happening but, NASA still planned for it. If you do some math, it took 9 years after President Kennedy announced to put a man on the Moon by the end of the decade. That 's almost 78840 hours! Every aspect of the Apollo 11 mission was carefully planned, including the rocket. THE ROCKET
Hundreds of years ago, people used to believe that the earth was flat, but with the research and technology, we were able to find out that it is a perfect sphere. Aliens run along those same lines. Even with all the technology today, there is still no definite answer if we are alone in this massive universe or not. There is so much controversy weather or not aliens exist. Over the past few decades the ideas of aliens has morphed into a craze, that one has to ask themselves, “what is an alien?” With “aliens” being in Hollywood movies and roller coaster rides, what do we actually consider to be aliens?
The 1960 U-2 incident happened during the Cold War on 1 May 1960 (just around my grandma’s birthday), during the presidency of Dwight D. Eisenhower and the premiership of Nikita Khrushchev when a United States of America U-2 spy plane was shot down in Soviet airspace. The aircraft that was flown by Central Intelligence Agency. Pilot Francis Gary Powers was performing aerial reconnaissance when it was hit by an S-75 Dvina (SA-2 Guideline) surface-to-air missile and crashed in Sverdlovsk (in Union Soviet Socialists Republic). The United States of America thought they were going to hide their initial intent but didn’t really succeed. All of this took place near Aramil in the Soviet Union.
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
Scientists have been busy analyzing the bounty of data and are busy creating new missions to find out more about comets. One of the reasons scientists want to study comets is that the icy bodies on comets could have delivered the organics and all molecules needed for life when they ran into the solar system . Past comet missions and ground-based telescopes have seen dozens of molecules on comets, including organics. Today scientists are not doing anything more with the Rosetta Mission but, a year later NASA created a mission called the “Deep impact”. The Deep impact mission is similar to the rosetta’s because scientists launched a probe into space that was designed to study the interior composition of comet Tempel 1 by releasing an impactor into the comet.
1 in 10 Los Angeles residents have considered moving because their house was haunted. UFOs and Bigfoot are two more examples of unexplained phenomenon. Ufo stands for Unidentified Flying Object.

In the story “Chicxulub”, the narrator, Ted, compares a meteor to the death of his daughter which was caused by a car accident. One example given at the beginning of the story to show the extreme impacts of meteors was one which was sixty yards across and exploded nearly a hundred years ago with an impact equivalent to eight hundred Hiroshima bombs. The narrator used the meteor as an example of life because he was trying to express that you never know what can happen. Millions of meteors come close to the earth daily and we are lucky that one doesn’t hit us. He expresses that we should pray and be thankful that none of these unexpected things happen which could demolish the entire population.
I have had passion in space engineering since I was a child. I spent my childhood gazing at stars in the night sky. I felt much happier when there were comets and extra-terrestrial bodies passing by. I always wondered what was beyond Earth and how would it be. When I was 10 years old, I got to knew about Kalpana Chawla who lost her life in Columbia disaster.
