(Mars, 4) Second, it has a source of energy, and third, it has water. (Mars, 4) Mars is more than 100 million miles away from earth. (Mars, 1) Deciding where to send a rover is not an easy job, for Mars’ exploration scientists and engineers. (Politics of Landing, 1) They have looked for sites that will help us understand Mars’ ability to support life. (Politics of Landing, 1) One way scientist tried to find life on Mars was to send the Phoenix Mars Lander mission to Mars.
Also images that we are able to see from the Earth. The geology is still being studied and it could take us centuries to totally comprehend and appreciate it. We do know that Mars was named after the ancient Roman God of War. This is due to the fact that the planet lets off a red bloody color. Earth and Mars also both have a lithosphere, hydrosphere and atmosphere.
Developing nuclear power use in space and as a propulsion system would be beneficial for space exploration and scientific research by allowing the National Aeronautic Space Administration (NASA) to explore farther and have faster travel times within the solar system and galaxy, by providing substantial power for manned exploration to other planetary bodies, and by allowing space probes and satellites to carry more instruments and operate longer. Nuclear propulsion allows for farther and faster travel times within the solar system and galaxy. The current propulsion system used by all space agencies is chemical propulsion. Chemical propulsion involves igniting millions of pounds of rocket fuel to produce thrust. Chemical propulsion is the only way to get spacecraft from the surface of the planet but once in space, it’s a different story.
The Skylab Space Station was launched May 14, 1973, from the NASA Kennedy Space Center by the colossal Saturn V launch vehicle (the moon rocket of the Apollo Space Program). Sixty-three seconds after liftoff of the Space Station, the shield designed to protect it from meteoroids also to shade Skylab's workshop—moved without any intent. The shield was torn from the space station because of atmospheric drag. This event led to a ten-day period where Skylab has many problems that had to be taken care of before the space station would be safe for future missions. The Skylab Space Station was launched into orbit on May 14, 1973 as part of the Apollo program.
Tides are daily movements of ocean water that change the level of the ocean's surface.The tides are caused by the exertion of gravitational forces by the moon and sun, and the rotation of the Earth. The relationship between the phases of the moon and the tides was first discovered more than 2,000 years ago by Pytheas, a Greek explorer. However, Pytheas could not explain the reasons behind the relationship. It was not until Sir Isaac Newton published his theories on gravitational pull in 1687 that the relationship between the moon and tides were fully understood. Gravitational forces from both the sun and moon continuously pull on the Earth.
Saturn’s Moons The planet of Saturn is an amazing planet as far as moons go. This planet is currently known to have fifty-two moons. Some of these moons are spherical in shape much like Earth’s moon and some look to be no more than a meteor that was captured by the huge planet. Now I’m not going to be able to discuss every moon that belongs to Saturn but I will talk about the six biggest which are: Titan, Rhea, Iapetus, Dione, Tethys, and Enceladus. All of Saturn’s moons were named after Greek Mythological figures.
Is there a lot of economic benefit from going to the moon? NASA has discovered a lot of water on the moon. In 2009 NASA crashed a rocket into the moon. NASA says they have detected 100 kg of water. This led many people to suggest that water should be extracted from the moon since we are running out of fresh water here on earth.
Living on Another Planet: Mars Mars is the fourth planet from the sun, the closest neighbor to Earth, and as a planet, is the most similar to our planet out of all the other planets in our solar system. These facts lead to an obvious question. What would it be like to live on Mars? Is such a thing possible, or merely just science fiction? Scientists have worked for many years trying to develop answers to these questions, and even going as far as to launch two rovers on June 10th, 2003.
Nostalgia for the Light: SFA Nostalgia for the Light, directed by Patricio Guzman and produced by Renate Sachse, is a documentary that was released in two thousand and eleven to show case the impact of the dictatorship of Augusto Pinochet. This was inspired by observatories in Chile’s Atacama Desert whose telescopes detect the oldest light in the universe .The film is in Spanish, with English subtitles to clarify meaning behind the script. The voiceover was done by an astronomer. He travels ten thousand feet above sea level to the driest place on earth, the Atacama Desert, where atop the mountains astronomers from all over the world gather to observe the stars. Sticking in the mind, Nostalgia for the Light leaves much food for thought on life's very important questions.
However, there were many concerns and questions about this ‘journey’ to the moon. Was it scientifically possible for man to land on the moon and return alive? Did the evidence of this event made logical sense, based on our knowledge of science and the information that is known about the moon? Was it staged just to appear like man really landed on the moon? This research paper will refute evidences made by this event.
