never landed on the moon. It has been 44 years since man took his first steps on the moon. The majority of the American public accepts the moon landings as truth, but there are a very vocal select few who refuse to accept what the government has depicted. Conspiracy theorists explain that at the time the U.S. government was desperate to beat the Russians in the space race, therefore they faked the lunar landings with the astronauts acting out their mission on a secret Hollywood set, or somewhere within Area 51. They claim since that the photos and videos of the Apollo voyage are only available through NASA, there is no other independent verification, thus the moon landings were a hoax.
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’’. It was released in 1974 which was just after two Apollo missions were succeeded. This is one of the mass public medias that made people believed that it was an hoax. Another example which reinforced this idea is a film called Capricorn One. This movie is about a mission similar to the Apollo’s where several astronauts are ready to take off to space, but there was a problem with the rocket so they had to fake it to make the public believe.
Naval Code 45812: Project SPARTAN II In the Novel “Halo: Fall of Reach” by Eric Nylund, the literary device used is Foreshadowing when every area to retreat to is eventually annihilated, before the Spartan super soldiers’ brutal training, and the discovery of one of seven ring-shaped artificial worlds that leads into the first game of the Halo trilogy: Combat Evolved. To begin, one of the first few examples of the device is present when there will be nowhere to go. “The problem was, the Spartans couldn’t take their fight into space. Every minor victory on the ground turned into a major defeat in orbit. Soon there would be no more colonies, no human settlements-and nowhere left to run.” – Nylund, 23.
Survival. Achieving this can bring out the worst in people. When the world turns around like it did for Miranda, life would never be the same. An unpredicted disaster has taken a toll on the world. A meteor struck the moon and moved it closer into orbit changing centrifugal forces and causing worldwide tidal waves, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, and that’s just the start.
While there they come across an elderly man named Peter Jackson and an infant named Jamie Ritter. They were the only survivors. They are taken back t the secret underground facility at Wildfire. Upon further study, the team uncovers that he bacterium that caused the bizarre deaths were caused by a crystal-structured, extraterrestrial microbe on a meteor that crashed into the satellite. They then discovered that the microbe, code named "Andromeda", mutates with each growth cycle, changing its biologic properties.
The biggest threat that NASA has identified is an asteroid named Apophis. However, it is not coming on ‘end of the world December 21, 2012 doomsday’ and is currently on a Level 0 on the Torino Scale. Because our ozone layer is thinning, there is a big possibility that if an asteroid hit our planet it would cause turmoil and destruction. One of the significant times this occurred was when the dinosaurs were wiped out. The surface of the moon is an example of such impacts, and the craters that people see today on the moon, people are starting to see on the
Buzz Aldrin, a part of the Apollo Mission, who first landed on the moon, swears he saw a UFO. He saw some weird lights and a ship on their way to the moon way back 1969. Another alien and UFO was narrated by an Air Force Officer. According to FOX news, Lt. Walter Haut released an affidavit after his death that not only did he saw a UFO, but also some alien bodies. In the other part of the world, doctors found some “materials” that are unlike anything on Earth.
Unfortunately, the Soviets were the first to launch a satellite in to space on October 4, 1957 which caused fear to erupt in the United States (notes pg 12). Eisenhower then started NASA and challenged them to send the first man into space (notes pg 12). The United States failed to send the first man into space and Kennedy challenged America to send the first man to the moon (notes pg 12). Success! On July 16, 1969, Apollo 11 had been launched in to space.
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.
Joshua E. Shiver Dr. Wayne Partridge ENGL 1101 26 September 2012 America’s Next Frontier is Out of This World On July 20, 1969, at 10:56 p.m., with more than half a billion people watching on television, Neil Armstrong became the first human to ever set foot on another world. He climbed down the Eagle's ladder onto the moon and proclaimed, "That's one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind” (Nasa.gov). This was a very exciting time in American history. Americans are known for their adventuresome spirit, always wanting to explore further and discover more. In 1893, Frederick Jackson Turner gave a speech to the American Historical Association.
