Banning literature is a way for the government to keep its people living in ignorance.

However after two days into the flight an oxygen tank exploded, handicapping the lunar module and forcing the crew to abandon the lunar landing. During their exploration in space Apollo 13 encountered a hardship of an oxygen tank exploding. Although the mission was considered to be a failure, however in exchange we received important information from mistakes made so that improvements could be made on any future endeavors to the moon.
3,2,1 Blast off! Apollo 13 was launched into space on April 11, 1970. Little did the three crew members know that they were aboard what one day would be considered NASA’s greatest failure.

The Space Race between the Soviets and the Americans was put into the public eye on October 4, 1957, when the Soviet Union launched Sputnik 1 into orbit. Sputnik was not only the first vehicle launched into space by mankind, but it was also the first vehicle ever put into orbit. The construction of the small satellite and development of the launch program was led by Sergei Korolev, the driving force of the Soviet space program. Since he was crucial to the development of their program, his identity was kept completely secret, even to those working on the project with him. He was known only as the Chief Designer.
The Effects of Nonconformity At school, we are often pressured to join clubs and categorize ourselves in a certain level of a GPA. We define our self-worth in test scores and what peers think of us. We can lose our independent qualities and attributes that make us unique in the world. If we stop going with the flow, we can be true to ourselves. Nonconformity is powerful because it can achieve recognition that would otherwise be inaccessible, it prevents stagnation and promotes innovation, and it provides a voice for those who lack one.
Yesterday, Oct. 4, 1957, the Sputnik 1 was launched into orbit by the Soviet Union. Now, how did we get to this point?

This shows why the lunar effect has been very controversial. Some reasons that cause the controversy of the lunar effect are the over-reliance of anecdotes instead of scientific evidence, as well as the exaggeration of the media, and the general publics inability to define the lunar effect. All of these reasons cause the controversy of the lunar effect to exist.
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).
