Humanity’s interest in the heavens and the solar systems has been universal and enduring. Humans are obsessed to explore the unknown, uncover new worlds, push the boundaries of our scientific and technical parameters, and then push further. The intangible wish to explore and challenge the boundaries of what we know and where we have been has provided welfares to our societies for centuries. Human space exploration helps us in addressing fundamental questions about our place in the universe and the history of the solar system. Astronomers have identified and cataloged numerous asteroids in close proximity to the earth’s orbit that have the potential of causing a catastrophe to our planet.
It was a major challenge that cost 25 Billion dollars to the Americans(“NASA”), but that could have an incredible impact on the world by improving technology and how people were perceiving the world. The Soviet proposed a moon program, so that both nation could collaborate effectively together in order to develop new technologies and be on the moon faster, unfortunately because of their opposite opinions and point of view this program failed and both countries worked alone (“The Space Race”). The USA were determined, this could really change their position on the international scene. NASA scientists developed the Apollo 11 (“Cadbury”), a rocket capable of sending three astronauts to the moon and come safely back on Earth. The astronauts were Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins (University Nebraska).
The spaceship had twenty boosters and it had a massive fuel tank. Then there is trouble, some parts are falling off the spaceship so they quickly landed on the moon. When they arrived they saw a weird thing on the moon. Bob thought it was an alien but John thought it was a space trooper and he also thought he was upset. So they went to help him and the nice space trooper was so excited that they came.
Alan Bean was the captain of this endeavor along with captain Pete Conrad. They landed in the moons ocean of storms. He explored the surface of the moon while doing multiple surface experiments. They also did the amazing feat of putting the first nuclear power generator station on the moon. This mission was to get a power source on the moon.
A trip to Mars is already being planned out and put into motion. The Mars One Project is an organization of people aspiring to land the first group of astronauts on mars by 2027. They have been training qualified volunteers to take this one trip journey to Mars and to live there. I believe that it is very attainable that humans can indeed eventually live on mars, and I have the utmost faith in the success of this mission. It exhilarates me that these discoveries will be carried out while I am still alive to see them, and I look forward to seeing the outcome of this project.
Space Exploration: Apollo missions Some of their motivations. They had curiosity about to go beyond of what they already know, touch the stars and inspire generations to pursue science and research as a way of life. Also, NASA team transformed what could be impossible in what was possible, among others. Some of the questions that they had in one of their missions were: How do we go to the Moon? How can finance this mission?
Armstrong and Aldrin then activated the lunar landing module (aka. “Eagle”), which provided them with a space vehicle that was capable of landing on the moon’s surface. This important stage of the journey required them to command the lunar module to land in the Sea of Tranquility, which was the first time any human being attempted such a landing: “On July 20, Aldrin and Armstrong entered the Lunar Module, separated the lander from the CSM, and descended toward the surface of the Moon” (Capelotti 33). After successfully landing on the moon, Armstrong was the first to step out on the lunar surface. Which marked the first a human being every stepped onto the moon: "That's one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind” (Capelotti 35).
President John F Kennedy was addressing the public from Rice University to get funding for NASA and the space program. It wasn’t just about funding though, it was also about getting to the moon and placing a man there, getting past the boundaries and having further in-depth knowledge of our solar system. Kennedy’s
EDT. There were three members on this space ship with three different jobs. Neil Armstrong’s job was to collect samples from the moons surface. Buzz Aldrin had the job of helping escort Armstrong and to also collect samples as they explored. The last astronaut’s job was to Pilot the aircraft in Lunar orbit until Armstrong and Aldrin had finished collecting samples.
Realizing that landing a 20-ton spaceship running at a tremendous speed through the thin Martian atmosphere would be highly problematic, the Mars One team proposes that when they are near Mars, the astronauts from the main area of the spaceship will transfer to the Lander, which would eventually land on Mars (“Mass Transit Vehicle”). It does look seemingly easy, but it may be wise to consider what had happened during the landing of NASA’s Curiosity rover on Mars and the reason why NASA branded the process as “Seven Minutes of
