6. Summarize the role of computers? The role of computers was crucial to the success of all the Apollo missions. They mapped out the coordinates, controlled the space craft, and gave round the clock monitor for all of the systems in relation to the mission. They also used computers to test flight and landing simulations for the modules.
Ever since humans looked up to the sky they wonder about space and the mysteries they hold. The expansion of human potential in space will be one of the humans race’s greatest accomplishment because it will lead us to new resources and expand humanity to make it happen, we are inventing new spacecrafts and technology to travel to different “worlds” there are companies that are inventing and designing the spacecraft for these missions like NASA and SpaceX. There are many conversation about how we can get to different planets. One interesting conversation is about NASA’s 100 Year Starship Project. In an article by Reed she talks about the 100 year project mission is to make a spacecraft to fly to another solar system within 100 years.
MAVEN explored Mars and reported data suggesting different reasons for atmospheric escape on the red planet. Back in 2013, MAVEN (The Mars Atmosphere and Volatile Evolution Mission) was launched from planet Earth. After its ten month journey to the red planet of Mars, MAVEN began studying the planet's atmosphere. MAVEN left Earth with the specific goal of studying how Mars went from a sufficient atmospheric pressure and temperature with liquid water, to a cold and low pressure atmosphere today (Lilis 358). More specifically, however, MAVEN had three individual goals.
On April 11, 1970, the Apollo 13 mission broke the mold of space exploration programs. Three men, one spacecraft, and a Mission Control crew set off for what was supposed to be an exploration and experimentation of rocks found on the moon. This mission became one of the most miraculous events in history. The Apollo 13 is significant to exploration, encounter and exchange in history in that it set the foundation for the space program's growth and further development. The spacecraft’s crew encountered many obstacles during the mission leading NASA to take stronger precautions for future missions.
They attained the majority of their data through NASA launched satellites and rockets. Which was another purpose of the Apollo missions, to collect data. Consequently, the Apollo Program provided the scientists with measurable attributes such as air temperature and cosmic ray impacts, that would’ve been hard or even impossible to find (NASA). If atmospheric scientists didn’t have access to such information then climate changes wouldn’t have been noticed, or fixed. The Apollo missions not influenced them with important discoveries like climate change, but with many more discoveries.
The Riddle of the Rosetta Stone In James Cross Giblin 's Riddle of the Rosetta Stone, he narrates the journey that many scholars take to translate Egyptian Hieroglyphs, and Greek carvings on a stone that led to understanding the life and culture of ancient Egyptians. As Giblin introduces readers to various scholars and their attempts to decipher the Rosetta Stone, he highlights their confusions, failures, and ultimate success. In 1799 Napoleon 's soldiers had found the Stone. The stone was filled with birds, animals, and geometric shapes. Things that looked like a text full of words that they were yet not able to translate.
As I have seen on the news I know that rovers are being sent to mars to study and examine the climate. I also know that the earth is going through massive climate changes that could devastate the human race in the far future. Because it is far in the future you may think that we have all the time in the world and yes that is true but complications will come up and maybe set us back. If we spend just a small amount of our total budget we may have a backup plan that will always be there to save us. I know it may not be clear now but space research is very important and I truly believe that we need
After another four days traveling between the moon and the Earth, the command module landed in the Pacific Ocean on July 24th, 1969. This marked the end of a historical space mission to travel across the void of space and to successfully land on the moon. More so, astronauts were able to walk on the moon and explore the lunar surface through direct physical contact. The previous 5 Apollo missions had been designed to travel to the moon and make lunar observations from orbit, yet this mission defied all of those observational patterns by allowing an objective obseevati9on by Astronauts on the lunar surface. Finally, the astronauts were quarantined due to the fact that they had been in an alien environment.
They draw our attention to the special, mesmerizing glow. Our ancestors believed that they can influence our destiny and our future. I think they can’t say about our fate but they can say us about weather and they can help us to find our way if we are lost. For a long time one of the main purposes of astronomy has navigation - star guided the captains of ships in the high seas and the conductors of caravans in the desert, for many centuries helped the stars do not go astray travelers. Navigation with the stars: The most common way to navigate by stars
