More than a few plans for it were announced in the 2000s which both government entities and the private sector have objectives in it. For example, china declared that by 2020 they will have a 60-ton multi-module space station in orbit . Furthermore, says that because of the importance of moon missions to the exploration of further planets, The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has an exciting new vision of humans returning to the moon and preparing for visits to mars and possibly beyond in 2020. The moon can also be a forward base for future operations on which humans reload their essential supplies by producing them from the moon’s local material. In addition, NASA gave a re-prioritized list of aims for the American space program and also they funded the first priorities.
At the time of the launch (1960) Lyndon Baines Johnson was president. In a speech directed to the American public Johnson said, “ If I could get one message to you it would be this: the future of our free country and the welfare of the free world depends upon our success in space. (Space Quotes)” Johnsons quote implied that if America was to continue being free and well, the Apollo program would have to continue. Johnson’s quote had a sense of urgency, the emphasis on “free” demonstrates the rhetorical usage of anadiplosis. The repetition of the idea of the wellbeing of America shows that the voyage into space is an essential part of the future, and essential for the welfare of America.
When Neil Armstrong first touched down on the moon in 1969, millions of people watched him take the first step and create history (Villard). Yet even as we’ve moved on from the moon landings and consider them as a pivotal point for mankind, “Forty years after U.S. astronaut Neil Armstrong became the first human to set foot on the moon, many conspiracy theorists still insist the Apollo 11 moon landing was an elaborate hoax”(Than). The idea that our voyage to the moon was deliberately staged seems to resurface year after year. While the conspiracy theorists claim the moon landing was a hoax, creating a fake moon landing would have been more expensive and difficult than actually reaching the moon. The race to the moon began on October 5, 1957, when the Soviet Union launched Sputnik into orbit around the earth: “When the Soviet Union launched the satellite Sputnik, on October 4, 1957, the United States experienced a technological identity crisis”(Olson).
Today’s space station would not exist if we didn’t have this race. Today’s aviation would not be, if we didn’t have this race, many flight instrument have been invented during this period of time. The Space Suit has also been invented, without this, the astronauts would not be able to go on IVA (outside of the rocket). Development and new theories in physics have allowed new technologies in the spacecraft industry to be elaborated such as the satellite. The radio and telecommunication have also been improved (NASA), space has changed our life, and without the invention of the satellite, there won 't be Internet, no communication, no international trade, and no economy… One of the Long-term effects of this race would be that the government started to spend more money on education because of the great enthusiasm with science that society had because of this race (University Nebraska).
Most debate and controversies surrounding space exploration could be seen becoming most prevalent after the cold war when the Soviet Union collapsed. As both the U.S and Russia's past rivalry were left behind, the incentive for space exploration dwindled and eventually became more about a "cheaper" and "faster" way to provide results. The result from a "cheaper" and "faster" method has made a post-cold war generation question the mere importance of space exploration. Matters that include poverty, war, disease, or politics have become more prevalent in the 21st century. People today raise many arguments including the mere cost of just funding space programs, let alone send a shuttle to space.
This monument will not only educate the public about the effects of the moon landing but also the factors that lead to the first man on the moon being from the United States. Most people agree that a moon landing took place in 1961, and whether it was a government hoax or not, its effects are monumental to today’s technology. However, the real question is, why did the United States feel the need to put a man on the moon in the first place? This answer is a little more complicated than it may seem. Though technological advancements, and curiosity at what lays in the vast realms of outer space were key factors in the Apollo 11 mission, the real incentive was pride.
Research project Stephen Hawkings once said “I don 't think the human race will survive the next thousand years, unless we spread into space.” Space exploration is an important part of understanding the universe, both in a physical sense and in a metaphorical sense. Throughout time people have made astounding accomplishments by studying space and how we can use it to our advantage. Space exploration, especially of mars, will affect the human experience, knowledge, and survival. It is common knowledge that humans have travelled to the moon and sent rovers and ships beyond to places like saturn 's moons and past pluto. The Voyager 1 is the groundbreaking spacecraft this is the first and only to be sent into interstellar space.
The NASA proposed space exploration to search for a new habitable planet and if successful would either bring the people to that new planet or build a colony of human beings there with the use of artificial wombs, if the former would be impossible to do. The space exploration was, at the end of the movie, became successful. Human beings found another planet named Cooper Planet which is rich in food resources as well as oxygen. This film is very scientific which is manifested in the usage of terms and concepts. The words used such as Gargantua, Murphy’s law, Morse Code, Binary System and such, were jargons of those who specialized in that field, which is Astronomy.
Is Mars Exploration Worth? Manned mission to Mars, a human exploration into Mars is really something that a lot of people have been dreaming for such a long time. Even NASA as a space team has been doing planning’s on the future so that humans are able to travel and visit Mars. A lot of people or everyone is very enthusiast on human exploration to mars as no one has ever gone a single step on Mars. And because of this and all of the curiosity and enthusiasm of all people one of space companies from USA which, is NASA started a planning or development of the first human exploration going to Mars to explore Mars so that they are able to unsolved mysteries that have been uncovered such as is it possible for humans to live on Mars.
Zhou 1 Henry Zhou Raymond Ferguson English for Academic Purposes 27/11/2016 Space Exploration "But why, some say, the Moon? Why choose this as our goal? And they may well ask, why climb the highest mountain? Why, 35 years ago, fly the Atlantic…”This is a speech illustrated by John F. Kennedy, the 35th president of the United States of America, in order to convince the public that the Apollo Mission is worth launching, he explained the reasons why space exploration is so important. However, in the year of 2016, fifty-four years after his speech, the question he answered still remained a question.
