Henri Oung Date due: April 28th, 2009 Knowledge and Conspiracy Theories Date submitted: April 28th, 2009 Term paper: Moon-landing Word count: 1110 We always strive to achieve something. That achievement might be a dream or something even bigger. One of the dreams that Americans have is to actually get off the planet earth and see the outer universe. But one of the first things they wanted to accomplish is to actually land on the moon. It was first succeeded by the soviets in 1966, but the Americans did try to land a few years before that, but failed.

With all this change people are constantly questioning certain things about the moon and its origins. Why does the moon seem to change in size at times? Or how is that even possible for the moon to change in size from where we are standing here on earth. When creating my own personal hypothesis the question of why does the
This planet is two-thirds of our moon and it is the largest rock in the Kuiper belt. After the discovery of Pluto, Scientist thought that it was too small to rotate around the sun. Pluto has not been visited by a spacecraft yet. It is so far that only the Hubble space telescope can see it; but it can only see its largest features. A spacecraft, named Horizon, launched in 2006, and it will hopefully reach Pluto in 2015.

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. The interaction among the speaker and the audience affects the text because it is told from the point of view from someone who
On July 16, 1969, Apollo 11 had been launched in to space. On it was Neil Armstrong, Edwin Aldrin, and Michael Collins. The United States had successfully landed the first men on the moon and brought them back home safely. In conclusion, the Cold War began because the United States was working hard to contain the spread of communism, the United States was worried about Soviet missiles, and the United States was in a race against the Soviet Union to send the first man to the man. Not only did the Cold War push the United States to discover new technological advances, but it also taught the United States how to react when a missile is dangerously close to the
During this time period the United States and the Soviet Union were also trying to be the first to put people on the moon. The Space Race officially started October 4th, 1957 when the Soviets sent the Sputnik which was the first official satellite sent into space. Now the United States was afraid of what the Soviets could do with control of space so within months the United States sent up their own satellite and the race had begun. Throughout the space race the Soviet Union seemed to have the advantage and was seemingly going to make it to space first. 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.
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.
