Astronomy. This is a great article about how a small group of people are trying to convince everyone that the moon landing was a hoax and the whole thing was scripted. They came up with some evidence that NASA had faked the moon landing and that it was being kept a big secret. Once again Bill Kaysing makes an appearance. The article also says that he wrote a book about the moon landing being fake.
He said the historic words, "That's one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind." A camera in the Lunar Module provided live television coverage as Neil Armstrong climbed down the ladder to the surface of the moon. Much evidence suggests that man actually did land on the moon, but a significant amount of the world’s population, today still believe that the moon landing was a hoax and was filmed in a Hollywood studio. These “conspiracy theorists”, have used the evidence provided by NASA, and used it as their own evidence, their main proposal suggests the shadows on the moon are not correct and must have been filmed in a Hollywood studio. A lot of popular culture follows this, with shows like Myth buster’s evaluating and testing the evidence suggested by the conspiracy theorists.
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).
He spoke not only to the citizens of society in the United States but to spirited individuals around the whole world. Not only inspiring the imaginations of millions but giving these individuals hope in an era of problems (Tesh). John F Kennedy spoke of the Apollo space program that will accommodate the endeavors the nation will face on exploration of the moon. It is to be said that this trip to the moon will be one of man kind’s greatest achievements. Kennedy addressed Yuri Gagarin, who was the first person in space, the Soviet Union, United States, and all other innovated countries.
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.
We do not intend to “founder in the backwash of the coming age of space.” He also continue to appeal to the people with this quote, “We choose to go to the moon. We choose to go to the moon in this decade…” In perhaps the most popular anaphora in his speech, Kennedy strongly and passionately expounds on why we should go to the moon in the first place. The persuasion was practically rolling off his tongue as he said this. He wanted the people to be as dedicated as he was. This is the
Movie Analysis Armageddon As novices in film analysis, the movie chosen (Armageddon) was felt it would be an excellent movie to view, dissect, and analyze. The movie has many challenges to overcome: ability to drill in an asteroid that is made of iron, like Rockhound losing control on the asteroid. When NASA starts the bomb, and when team has to choose one to will stay behind and detonate the bomb. One may believe that the intent of this movie is to show how life could be, if this were a real life situation, the circumstances that may arise if this were to become reality. It shows how life is fragile and should be cherished and not to take life for granted.
Using the five components listed above, an explanation of how during the Apollo 13 crisis, NASA, with support from the Nixon Administration and the revision of their communication policies and procedures due to the Apollo 1 event, provided excellent communication to the public, resulting in a bolstered image, and trust for the continuance of future manned space missions (Kauffman, 2001). Unfortunately, their inability to communicate effectively to their publics during the Challenger crisis labelled them a “textbook example of a crisis communications failure” (Martin and Boynton, 2005). The two case
Scientific Research Paper The Hubble Telescope: Edwin Hubble Imagine a large school bus orbiting around Earth uncovering the mysteries of the universe. Sounds preposterous, but the Hubble Telescope, named for an esteemed pioneer of astronomy Edwin Hubble, is traveling around Earth right now at a speed of 17,500 miles an hour. The Hubble Telescope allows scientists to see as far as 15 billion light years away, make observations, and further study the conundrums that plague our society (“NASA The Hubble Story: Mission Factoids”). Many important scientists directly contributed to the planning, building, and launching of The Hubble Telescope on April 25, 1990 (“NASA Launches the Hubble Space Telescope”). To further understand the complexity of the telescope, you must understand the planning and capabilities of The Hubble Telescope and the scientists behind it.
Ancient Aliens Since its debut in 2010 millions have been captivated by The History Channel’s documentary series ‘Ancient Aliens’. The series explores the controversial “Ancient Astronaut Theory” that asserts that long ago aliens came to earth and changed the course of human history; they let themselves be worshipped as gods; they taught us how to do things like metallurgy and masonry; they gave us language and alphabets, and they showed us how to build massive megalithic structures using their technology. Watching the show even for a few minutes, it is easy to get sucked in. It takes you to exotic locations in pursuit of these places where the aliens may have been. The show makes it easy to look at things and think, “Humans could have never done this alone,” which is the essence of most every episode in the series.
