11) Describe four ways Mars is similar to Earth today. Describe four ways Mars is different from Earth today. Similarities: Both are terrestrial planets. Both have iron and nickel in their core. Mars surface temperature may be Earth like.
Precipitation totals 6-10 inches of rain a year, which includes melted snow. The tundra is the coldest biome on Earth, with average annual temperatures ranging from -40°F in the winter to 65°F in the summer. The winter is much longer than the summer in the tundra, and as a result, the temperature is below freezing (32°F) for the majority of the year. Due to extremely cold temperatures that last most of the year, the layer of ground just below the surface stays permanently frozen. This frozen layer of ground is called permafrost.
“The team also found two minerals made of iron and sulfur, gregite and pyrrhotite, that are common byproducts of terrestrial bacteria and other microbes. This mineral combination is almost never seen inside terrestrial rocks unless life has been there.” (Robert Naeye). Finally, they found more remains of martian microbes that were fossilized. From all of this information, some scientist have concluded that there has been life on Mars at some point, not necessarily at the present, or in intelligent lifeforms like humans, but still
After the Apollo missions and after the change in direction of NASA’s mission and goals, there was jobs left for military career opportunities.During Moonport there was a lot of missions during this time like the Apollo missions, Mercury Missions, Gemini Missions. The main goal for Moonport was to get someone into space it’s 1957 and the Russians had already got someone to the moon now that was a problem because people believed that the Russians were spying on America also Americans believed that they wouldn’t be able to develop new technology so their main goal was to get someone in space. There plan worked and on May 5th, 1961 they had the first man in space this was a huge deal at this time! Each of these missions had a goal and each of them had achievements with them. The mercury missions goal was to orbit a crewed spacecraft around earth and bring it back safely, their achievements was that there was 6 successful manned space flights.
After the report of explosion in lunar module giving result in lack of oxygen, excess of CO2 because of poor filtration and lack of energy, the control tower team was having a huge task. They have to work together by using the maximum of the expertise to develop the new navigation procedure and they also have to test these procedures too. After that they have to communicate with the first team (three members of Apollo 13) about the newly developed and tested navigation procedures. It was only the good teamwork which makes able the control tower team to do the task of three months in only three days. What is the significance of the phrase "failure is not an option?"
Apollo 13 was supposed to be a very trustworthy mission when it launched because they had test pilots who put themselves in danger all the time on the rockets. When Apollo 13 left for space there was not much news about the mission, which was okay with the pilots because going up in the air had never been a problem for the crew. But when they went into space it was actually the first time for 2 crew members. Although they both were fine with the idea of risking their life for science. The reason for that is when it ended with news all around the world was because when they got into space some bad events occurred which will be explained in the next paragraph.
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 money spent on the space race was not a legitimate use of government funds because the money could have gone to more relevant causes, it is extremely dangerous, and exploration beyond earth is unnecessary until we can first solve problems on earth. This money could have gone to more relevant causes. NASA spent twenty three billion dollars on manned programs from 1961 to 1969(Granath). This money could have gone to much better causes such as education and healthcare. Many communities in the US need more funds for education that NASA is instead using for space exploration.
Truly, those innovations did influence Canada in different fields during the period of Space Race. It influenced Canadian citizens’ lives a lot, simulating the cooperations with other counties and it also benefited the world a lot as well. Innovations could bring people a better life. Indeed, the high-tech products and new technology coming from the Space Race period did make the Canadian people’s lives much more handy as well as it objectively increased the self-confident of being a
