Spitzer Space Telescope Mission Overview- The Spitzer Space telescope was launched into a heliocentric Earth trailing orbit by the Delta II heavy launch vehicle. It was launched from the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida on 25 August 2003. The Spitzer mission’s goal was to launch and infrared telescope into space as part of NASA's Great Observatories Program. NASA had already launched 3 other telescopes into space and Spitzer would be the last of the four. It is designed to detect infrared radiation.
HSC PHYSICS ASSESMENT TASK 1 SPACE EXPLORATION Robert Hutchings Goddard (1882-1945) When and where did they do their main work? Over the course of his lifetime Robert H. Goddard has contributed a great deal of knowledge, understanding, theory and practice to the development and evolution of modern day rocketry, earning him the title of “the father of modern rocketry”. Goddard was an American scientist who did most of his experiments between 1912 and 1945, until his death, in areas such as Massachusetts, where he was born, and also in Roswell, New Mexico, where he carried out a lot of his rocket launches, with several of his colleagues, like Clarence N Hickman. Goddard graduated from south high school in Worcester in 1904 and achieved his degree from Worcester Polytechnic Institute in 1908. He then began his graduate studies at Clark University, which is also where Goddard did some of his early, but significant work, testing theories through experiments and developing ideas about rockets, e.g., Goddard's pendulum experiment, which he used to measure the trust of a rocket.
(Palmer, Dunford & Akin, 2009) Discuss the aspects of NASA practice revealed in the aftermath of the Columbia disaster suggest that the change sought in the aftermath of Challenger were not sustained. In 2003 (Palmer et. al), when the world watched the
Apollo Mission 11 Heather Hawk May 30, 2013 The Apollo program was a human spaceflight program undertaken by NASA during the years 1961-1975 with the goal of creating the manned moon landing missions. In 1961 president John F. Kennedy spoke of his goal of landing a man on the moon by the end of the decade. He was able to accomplish this mission on July 20, 1969. When he landed the astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin, with Michael Collins that orbited over during the Apollo 11 mission. There were five other Apollo missions that also landed astronauts on the moon.
When Neil Armstrong first touched down on the moon in 1969, millions of people watched him take the first step and create history (Villard). Yet even as we’ve moved on from the moon landings and consider them as a pivotal point for mankind, “Forty years after U.S. astronaut Neil Armstrong became the first human to set foot on the moon, many conspiracy theorists still insist the Apollo 11 moon landing was an elaborate hoax”(Than). The idea that our voyage to the moon was deliberately staged seems to resurface year after year. While the conspiracy theorists claim the moon landing was a hoax, creating a fake moon landing would have been more expensive and difficult than actually reaching the moon. The race to the moon began on October 5, 1957, when the Soviet Union launched Sputnik into orbit around the earth: “When the Soviet Union launched the satellite Sputnik, on October 4, 1957, the United States experienced a technological identity crisis”(Olson).

The mission was initiated under President Nixon, with the intent of being the seventh manned mission of the Apollo program and only the third for a lunar landing (Goodman, 2009). The requirements of the mission included the inspection and sampling of materials in the Frau Mauro Formation, surveying and sampling the Imbrium Basin, deploying and launching activating the Apollo Lunar Surface Experiments Package (ALSEP), further developing the capability to work in a lunar environment and photographing other potential sites (“Apollo 13 Mission”). Initially, the flight was going smoothly, with only a few minor setbacks the first two days. However, on the 13th, the crew heard a loud bang.
Even though NASA and the U.S. government have video of the Apollo11 moon landing, many still think we in fact did not go to the moon. Why haven’t there been more manned explorations and was this an elaborate hoax by NASA to satisfy political demands. Michael Newton (2006). The Encyclopedia of Conspiracies and Conspiracy Theories (pg. 22).
His name is one of only 72 names inscribed on the Eiffel Tower. Shortly after the discovery of Neptune, Le Verrier was convinced that there still might be another planet further out in our Solar System. It turned out to be a large moon of Neptune, named Triton. With this discovery, more accurate and detailed data could be obtained about Neptune, such as Neptune’s mass and orbital path. A British astronomer, William Lassell, is actually credited with the discovery of Triton.
“Evaluate The Evidence That Suggests The Moon Landing Was A Hoax.” – In President John F. Kennedy's speech to Congress, on May 25, 1961, he expressed a concern that the United States was falling behind the Soviet Union in technology and prestige. He challenged the nation to put a man on the moon before the end of the decade. On July 16, 1969, the Apollo 11 launched from the Kennedy Space Centre. On July 20, 1969, Commander Neil Armstrong became the first man on the moon. He said the historic words, "That's one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind."
