Immigrants have positively affected America today in areas of technology/science, jobs, and religion. One immigrant that has positively affected science in America was Albert Einstein. His numerous scientific discoveries revolutionized the foundation of science. One major discovery he made was his general theory of relativity. He predicted that the force of gravity causes a curvature in space and time.
When John F. Kennedy had said that the U.S. would put man on the Moon. He was the man who planned to put the three men on the Moon. So, they sent the Apollo 13 up to the Moon to do their mission. The three men that were on board, the spacecrafts were named Jim Lovell, John Swigert, and Fred Haise. However, some people know them by different names.
He stood trial because he published a book on theories of how the solar system worked. He personally believed in the Copernican theory, but the Catholic church didn’t. So Galileo lost in this trial, and had to sign a document, and live in house arrest for the rest of his life. Galileo Galilei accomplished, impacted, and reflects Renaissance ideas many times. He figured out a belief to a solar system, he improved the telescope, and he invented a
We are living in a state of constant scientific revolution. There is not a single area that you can name that is now seen as it was seen a hundred years ago. Nothing is left of the world view of one hundred years ago. The Scientific Revolution was a period of time between the fifteenth, sixteenth, and seventeenth centuries in which the emergence of modern science transformed the views of society. Many discoveries and developments in the areas of mathematics, physics, and astronomy came about after this period because scientists felt like they needed to be improved.
Leaving more than 400,000 journals, scientific writings, papers, models, and other scientific memorabilia to his undergraduate alma mater, Oregon State University. Pauling had such a passion for science that he continued working and publishing books and finding new scientific discoveries until he was over eighty years old. Pauling’s love dedication, and scientific discoveries had a lasting effect on the science community. Such an effect that two years after his death The Linus Pauling Institute of Science and Medicine moved to Oregon State University and becomes the Linus Pauling Institute. In conclusion Linus Pauling did not have the best childhood in the world.
The Space Race While the Cold War was going on the Soviets send their first probe to orbit the moon...Luna 2.Then in 1961 the Soviets send the first man to orbit the Earth (Yuri Gagarin) flying in the Vostok 1. (“Apollo 11”) A month later on May 5th the first American was sent to space (but not to orbit. )Apollo 8 was launched from Cape Kennedy at 7:50 A.M. on December,21,1968,Apollo 8’s mission goal was to orbit the moon. It was a successful, mission (Udvar). Seven months later the Soviets suffered from a launch pad explosion.
PREPARATION My biology hero, Joseph Priestley, really impacted the world. He impacted the world by discovering oxygen, inventing sparkling water, and helping his colleagues contribute to electricity. Many people do not appreciate and recognize him as much as Albert Einstein, Thomas Edison, Benjamin Franklin, etc. Joseph Priestley showed his intelligence as an child by studying math, logic, metaphysics, and philosophy. He also fluently spoke six languages.
Melville’s educational philosophy was focused on solving their own curiosity, unlike other parents who focus on delivering information. In Richard Feynman’s autobiography, Surely You’re Joking, Mr. Feynman, he mentions family trip went to the ‘American Museum of Natural History’, which he debated about the origin of atoms. His father started to ask questions on the basis of advanced theories. Feynman described father’s education as “enough to bring me [Feynman] to a science field”, and to be a scientist (Feynman, 16-17). After few decades, when Feynman became one of the greatest physicists and he could contribute to the popularization of quantum
Galileo Galilei (Born February 15th, 1564 in Pisa, Italy Died January 8th, 1642) The scientific revolution was a period of time in Europe where there were many advances in science, math, and technology. This stretch of time also challenged thoughts and beliefs of countless people. During the scientific revolution there were multiple inquisitive explorers that had tremendous impact on the world. Throughout this duration of time I believe the most vital individual was Galileo Galilei. Galileo’s contributions were many and included his invention of the air thermometer, amplifying of the telescope, use of telescope to discover that the earth is not still and in fact how it revolves around the sun, and the law of falling bodies.
With all this going on in his life, he managed to move forward and later become the new chairman of mathematics in the Venetian Republic. Galileo was an amazing influence in the time of the renaissance and was considered the founder of science in physics. He helped bring up an idea about doing many experiments and observations in order to determine how things worked. He contributed to the Renaissance by helping in the creation of a new
