When John F. Kennedy had said that the U.S. would put man on the Moon. He was the man who planned to put the three men on the Moon. So, they sent the Apollo 13 up to the Moon to do their mission. The three men that were on board, the spacecrafts were named Jim Lovell, John Swigert, and Fred Haise. However, some people know them by different names.
JFK increased spending on the space program in order to try and get ahead in the space race. He was the first president to ask Congress for money to help land an American man onto the moon. On February 20, 1962, astronaut John Glenn orbited the Earth three times and safely landed in the Atlantic Ocean. After this accomplishment, the U.S. was now equal in space exploration to the Soviet Union. His actions and dedication to the space program eventually contributed to landing a man on the moon in 1969.
Armstrong and Aldrin were the first people to ever step foot on the moon. They accomplished a dangerous job that people thought was unachievable. In the speech it states, “they will be mourned by their families and friends; they will be mourned by their nation; they will be mourned by the people of the world; they will be mourned by a mother Earth that dared send two of her sons into the unknown.” Not only would their families mourn, the nation would mourn to because of their success in landing on the moon and being able to achieve something that hasn’t been done. This shows that President Nixon had this speech prepared in case the mission had gone wrong. The speech is effective because the audience understands and are able to connect with what the President is
The documents of the 1969 Apollo 11 mission that had landed the first humans to the moon have appeals to ethos, logos, and pathos and are effective in achieving its purpose. These documents were composed by different sources appealing to the audience and its use of ethos, logos, and pathos and how they each comply to make the documents potent to its purpose. Document 2 is a speech written for president Richard Nixon in case if there was a moon disaster. This speech was addressed to US citizens to notify them that the astronauts unfortunately could not make it back. Nixon appeals to pathos by using a strong sense of adjectives to describe their hard work they have done throughout this journey.
Reagan used pronouns to include the audience throughout his speech. One example of Reagan’s speech being inclusive of the entire nation was when he said, “ We’ve grown used to the wonders in this century” (4). He is saying that as a whole country we are used to finding new wonders everyday. Reagan was very confident in NASA and wanted to continue to receive support, so he said, “We’ll continue our quest into space” (6). He believed that America could keep the space program going strong despite the recent tragic events.
The Space Race While the Cold War was going on the Soviets send their first probe to orbit the moon...Luna 2.Then in 1961 the Soviets send the first man to orbit the Earth (Yuri Gagarin) flying in the Vostok 1. (“Apollo 11”) A month later on May 5th the first American was sent to space (but not to orbit. )Apollo 8 was launched from Cape Kennedy at 7:50 A.M. on December,21,1968,Apollo 8’s mission goal was to orbit the moon. It was a successful, mission (Udvar). Seven months later the Soviets suffered from a launch pad explosion.
Reagan tells us how he has always looked up to our space program and that he has faith in it, which coincides with his faith in the country as a whole. He tells us that we have no secrets, everything is out in public because that’s what freedom is. This speech has everything in it that an American citizen would want to hear after something like this happens. Our president and his family are sad, our country is sad, but that doesn’t stop America, we are strong, brave, courageous, always working toward the future. So much in fact that we are now speaking to the children about the future, telling them that in order to have a future they must be brave, the American way.
The moon landing in 1969 not only summed up the 1960’s, but also gave the American people a glimmer of optimism. Neil Armstrong taking those first steps on the moon greatly affected the 1960’s in a positive way that affected the world today. During the 1960’s, there were times of hardships, happiness, and peace. With the Vietnam War raging on the other side of the world, Americans back home were on anti-war
His inclusion of analogies and emotional appeals, combined with his strong sense of authority, brings his arguments into focus and gives them a punch. His power in delivering this speech quite possibly kept America looking towards the stars and propelled them into the next age of space exploration. President Reagan’s speech serves as a touching conclusion to a tragic event. Despite the terrible catastrophe, Reagan’s four-minute speech provided closure on the one-minute tragedy whose impact will be felt for
And tonight, I’ve made up my mind. One of us will fly to Mars!” (p. 1). To explain this quote, Fiorello basically proves Bramante wrong, when Bramante is talking of how there is no earthly way that he is able to go to space, and then he talks of how he has saved up enough money already, and it’s guaranteed that one of his family is going to Mars. “Maria looked at her husband. “What have you done?” she said.
The two countries wanted to prove their technology, military power, economic system, and political system. The space race was a part of the Cold War. The space race began as the Soviet Union sent Sputnik and the first man into space. Sputnik was launched on October 04, 1957. Sputnik is world’s first artificial satellite.
Alexandra Quintero Quintero 1 Mrs. Swetland AP Language and Composition 30 September 2015 Moon Analysis Project The Apollo 11 reached the moon 's surface 46 years ago with Neil Armstrong and his fellow astronauts Michael Collins and Buzz Aldrin on board. This was the mission that landed the first humans on the moon. In just eight days, those three men became a part of one of mankinds greatest accomplishments. After this momentous event, many writers, speakers, and artists expressed in their own way, what had happened as well as their own personal thoughts and opinions on the mission. "Man Takes First Steps on the Moon" found in a special edition of The Times, focuses on informing the audience of the details and facts of the moon landing as well as its political
Was the NASA Moon Landing of 1969 Real or Fake? In 1969, all of America watched as NASA sent the first manned ship into space and to the moon. Hundreds of people gathered around the launch station and thousands watched the live broadcasting on the news. As the countdown reached 0, the rocket with Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldron and Tim Collins flew to space and America gave a sigh of relief. Now it was time to watch as Neil Armstrong took the first steps on the moon to plant the American flag on the moon symbolizing our victory in the notorious “Space Race” with the Soviet Union.
Now, for the non-believers, including me, there are many facts I have dug up so let’s start with this one. One thing I found is that if Neil Armstrong was really the first person to land on the moon, then who filmed him getting off the lander from outside the lander? If he were to be filmed, I would expect it to be from the inside the lander. Next, It was said that the astronauts that went to the moon trained for the gravity for the moon in a fake environment, so could the whole have been filmed from that very place? This also supports the other fact that I gave about Neil Armstrong being filmed getting on the moon from the outside of the
Because the author was a personal witness to the launch, she herself wanted to tell others why the launch was a great accomplishment for man. Since the subject was the Apollo 11 launch, she would be explaining a subject that most people know about, so she didn’t just talk about the the basics and facts, instead she explained in detail what happened and why it is so important. The audience of the Objectivist most likely value individualism, freedom, and reason just like Ayn which allows her to write in a way that satisfies her and not just in a way that satisfies others. How does the text appeal to ethos, pathos, and logos? This text appeals to ethos because we know that Ayn is a novelist and also partially created a publication called the Objectivist.
