During the second World War (1939-1945) two atomic bombs were dropped on the cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in Japan, it is debatable whether or not these bombs were the appropriate response. I believe that this was the appropriate response because of the horrible crimes the Japanese committed against Americans as well as innocent people during the Rape of Nanking, the bombing of Pearl Harbor, and the Bataan Death march, also, the two bombs were the final factors in ending the war, as well as the atomic bombs were the first bomb of their kind, this put the Americans in a position of undeniable power. Without these bombs, the war would’ve only progressed and left behind more casualties and destruction. The Japanese committed horrible crimes against innocent
On April 14, 1912 the RMS Titanic crashed into an iceberg and sank only a few hours later, down to the bottom of the Atlantic. The Titanic was the largest steam vessel ever built and was truly a civilization in its own; due to its economic diversity and number of passengers, the Titanic was basically a floating city. However, after the crashing of the enormous steam vessel, its story became even more intriguing to the public. The tragic event was written about in songs, poetry, and novels. To many, the unsinkable ship was a symbol of identity and hope before it became a tragedy, influencing music and literature.The sinking of the Titanic influenced African American culture and literary works throughout the 20th Century.
The first bombing was on Hiroshima, it was August 6, 1945. The first bomb wiped out about 90% of Hiroshima, after the nuclear explosion 40,000 more people began to die from the radiation from the bomb. The second bombing which was on Nagasaki happened August 9th only
The Columbia space shuttle was first built in April 12, 1981 and launched in April 14, 1983. The shuttle had completed 27 missions before failure. On the 28 it was disintegrated and killed all seven crew members. This spacecraft could launch like a space shuttle and landed like an airplane. This space shuttle was the only one that couldn’t land on the international space station.
The navigator, who also served as the radio operator, worked out of a small compartment behind the pilots. The bombardier sat behind a plexiglass nose cone and —. (B-26B Marauder). Before the Second World War, having this many people up in one plane at once was completely unheard of because planes could never produce enough power to get off them all off the ground. But during the Second World War the invention of the jet engine completely changed that.
Today, air travel is considered the safest mode of transportation, but it hasn’t always been that way. When aviation was still developing in the early 20th century, it had many flaws that were realized only after major accident occurs. These accidents trigger vital improvements in safety that will, over time, create a virtually perfect air travel experience. One example of this type of accident is the 1956 Grand Canyon collision where United Flight 718 collided with TWA Flight 2 over the Grand Canyon. There were no survivors and investigators had to use the paint transfers and indentations on the wreckage to figure out how the planes collided and why.
The Titanic was beautiful and larger-than-life, but was severely deadly. The Titanic and all of its passengers could have survived if the ship had been prepared for the worst. Instead of bringing only twenty lifeboats, they should have brought forty-eight lifeboats. The captain could have also called to close the water compartments, but was too late to do so. The ship could have also survived if they would of had well quality rivets and steel that didn’t have high sulfur.
2 hours and 25 minutes after the sun rose, the North Tower of the World Trade Center was hit by a commercial airplane. What happened from there made history. 15 years later Manhattan has rebuilt. A brand new building named “One World Trade Center” was built, the tallest building in the western hemisphere and the sixth tallest building in the world. Many lessons have been learned from this attack, like to make buildings that could physically withstand a plane crash without collapsing, or to make the security for entering planes much more secure.
Carter explains that mid 70’s pollution control policies shocked the transportation market and the people. He recalls President Roosevelt’s seemingly impossible orders to produce 100,000 airplanes saying: “If they could gear up to fight a war, they could gear up to protect public health.” The airplane is one of the largest polluting transportation forms. The Wright brothers had no idea the drastic
“No confusion, no noise of any kind, one could believe no danger was imminent.” On April 10, 1912 the "biggest ship above water" set off from Southampton, England to New York City, the "Unsinkable ship" had sufficiently lifeboats to save others from a different smaller ship that could potentially sink. Perceptions of the sinking of the Titanic have changed over time due to research findings, public knowledge, and in depth studies. After some time with new information, researchers have finished examinations that has offered new actualities on how the Titanic sank and why. People have developed another insight concerning how the Titanic sank. Before studies began coming forward many only knew what they were told, which was the Titanic hit a substantial icy mass and sank, killing many individuals, however the studies does not broadly explain.
