COLD WAR SPACE RACE The cold war between the U.S. and Russia brought out a competition on who would make it to space first the space race. The space race brought out Americas competitive personality the space race change America because they change humanity by having a human being land on the moon. This space race between the two world powers change humanity with breaking limits of new technology for space travel. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) is formed, it replaces the National Advisory Committee on Aeronautics (NACA) in October 1 1958. In 1957 the space race had begun between two of the most powerful countries in October of that year the U.S.S.R launch sputnik 1 in orbit a month later sputnik 2 is launch with a small dog named Laika.
There’s a peer-reviewed article that contains many of these claims, but they also provide the origins and history on how people were even able to land on the moon. This article is called ‘’Apollo Moon Landing hoax accusations’’. What made people to make quick assumptions like that? Several medias reinforced the idea that we never actually landed on the moon. For example, the first book which was on this subject was made by Bill Kaysing who he himself published was called ‘’We never went to the Moon: America’s Thirty Billion Dollar Swindle’’.
The Man on the Moon In 1969 Neil Armstrong became the first man to ever walk on the moon. As he took his first steps he said, “Thats one small step for man but one giant step for man kind.” Neil Armstrong was right when he said that. This event not only brought the people of the United States together, but people throughout the whole world. They all had one goal in mind, future achievements. The purpose of the first text, Man Takes First Steps on the Moon, is to inform the audience about the importance of Neil Armstrong and Edwin Aldrin landing on the moon and discovering greater things than what you can ind on earth.
When the war was done the Military saw how skilled Neil was so he was assigned as command pilot for space equipment. He worked as a test pilot for many experimental high speed aircraft including the X-15. Then for 2 year of his test pilot he was involved in the X-20 Dyna-Soar orbital glider program. This type of aircraft was to see what the possiabletts where for the US (United States) space program. This was a big part of America because it was a start for a hole new program.
September 4, 2013 A Loss of Interest Charles Krauthammer expresses his disappointment for American’s loos of interest in moon exploration in his Washington Post article, “The Moon We Left Behind”. This essay is very informative, and fairly persuasive; Krauthammer keeps it entertaining by adding his own opinions and insights. Krauthammer’s main idea is how America has essentially abandoned the Earth’s largest satellite since our original obsession with it, brought on by President Kennedy. If we ever hope to discover any new information about the moon, or our solar system, we will have to send someone into space once again. Krauthammer sets an informative and persuasive tone by his use of numbers and dates.
They had the first satellite, the first manmade object to orbit the sun, the first manmade object to impact the moon, the first man and women in space, they had the first ever space walk, the first manmade object to impact venus, and the first satellite to orbit the moon. However somehow we caught up and were first to put man on the moon on June 20th 1969. With Apollo 11 landing and Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin walking on the moon we felt a bit more secure about the cold war now that we were in charge of space. This actually came in handy later when we said that we could destroy all Soviet missiles with a program named SDI or star
Apollo 17 was the eleventh and final mission of the United States' Apollo program, the sixth mission to land humans on the Moon. Launched at 12:33 a.m. Eastern Standard Time (EST) on December 7, 1972, with a three-member crew consisting of Commander Eugene Cernan, Command Module Pilot Ronald Evans, and Lunar Module Pilot Harrison Schmitt, Apollo 17 remains the most recent manned Moon landing and the most recent crewed flight beyond low Earth orbit. After Apollo 17, extra Apollo spacecraft were used in the Skylab and Apollo-Soyuz Test Project programs. Apollo 17 was the sixth Apollo lunar landing, the first night launch of a U.S. human spaceflight and the final crewed launch of a Saturn V rocket. It was a "J-type mission", missions including three-day lunar surface stays, extended scientific capability, and the third Lunar Roving Vehicle.
Ast 103 Amber Titus Shrinking Moon Lab The moon along with the rest of Earth’s atmosphere has such a major impact of human’s lives. Space has provided natural entertainment of shooting stars, planets, comets, stars, and meteorites. The one space object that has stuck out to me and I am sure others is, the moon. The moon places a huge role in everyday life because we see it rise, set change phases, change colors, etc. With all this change people are constantly questioning certain things about the moon and its origins.

Landsat and Apollo: The Forgotten Legacy Paul D. Lowman, Jr. Abstract This paper demonstrates that Landsat was fundamentally a result of the Apollo Program. The U.S. Geological Survey's EROS proposal of 1966, which eventually led to Landsat, was stimulated largely by the demonstrated utility of 1100 orbital photographs from the Gemini missions, Gemini being solely preparation for Apollo. In addition, Earth-oriented remote sensing research sponsored by NASA in the mid-1960s, primarily support for Apollo lunar missions, included studies of Earth resource applications as well. Finally, the extensive series of airborne remote sensing studies carried out by the NASA Manned Spacecraft Center was Apollo-derived in that the primary mission of
