When he graduated from Blume High School in Wapakoneta, Ohio, he won a scholarship to Purdue University, where he studied Aeronautical Engineering. When Armstrong finished college, he was called to serve time in the Korean War, where he flew seventy-eight missions. During his time serving in the Korean War as a pilot, he earned three medals, including the Korean service medal. When the Korean War ended, he moved to Texas in 1962 to join the astronaut program. Armstrong was the first man on the moon, but he had lots of things to do and pass before he could even step foot in a space rocket.
Newton's laws soon began to have a practical impact on the design of rockets. About 1720, a Dutch professor, Willem Gravesande, built model cars propelled by jets of steam. In 1898, a Russian schoolteacher, Konstantin Tsiolkovsky (1857-1935), proposed the idea of space exploration by rocket. In a report he published in 1903, Tsiolkovsky suggested the use of liquid propellants for rockets in order to achieve greater range. Tsiolkovsky stated that the speed and range of a rocket were limited only by the exhaust velocity of escaping gases.
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.
After this he joined the Bucharest Military School where he graduated as an artillery officer. Fond of technical problems, especially of flight technics, in 1905 he built a 'missile-airplane' in Bucharest for the Army. Then he went up to Berlin to attend studies at Technische Hochschule in Charlottenburg, after which he followed with studies at the Science University in Liege, part of the Electrical Institute in Montefiore. He registered at the Superior Aeronautical School in Paris where he graduated in 1909. H. Coanda began his engineering practice in aerodynamics where he is only now becoming become world reknowed.
A Court of Inquiry was held and the accident investigation was given to the Royal Aircraft Establishment at Farnborough. By using debris recovered from the Elba crash and using a known good airframe to do pressurized hull testing in a water tank, the causes of these accidents were traced to structural failure around the square windows and ADF antenna mounts due to metal fatigue. The Comet fleet was grounded while the lessons learned from these crashes were implemented into the next generation of Comets. Unfortunately for de Havilland, Boeing had taken the findings from the investigation and applied them to jet aircraft still on the drawing board. These improvements in metallurgy and design aided Boeing in dominating the world market in producing commercial jet aircraft that were larger and had longer ranges than the Comet.
Disney’s Father – Elias – acquired shares in the O-Zell jelly factory in Chicago and moved his family back to the city in 1917. Disney began his freshman year at McKinley High School and took night courses at the Chicago Academy of Fine Arts. By this time he became the cartoonist for the school newspaper. Walt had hopes of joining the army, and had dropped out of high school at 16 years old. However, he had been rejected for being under aged.
The first Natural gas vehicle was first invented in 1860 by an unknown inventor, though it was known that the inventor was also experimenting with vehicles powered by hydrogen, oxygen and carbon, but nothing ever came of these experiments. The first time Natural gas was used for transportation starting in the 1930’s. As World War Two started scientists and resources were sent elsewhere to contribute to the war effort, and fossil fuels remained the dominant fuel since it was a reliable and widely known technology whereas Natural gas engines were still in the experimental stage. The next time that natural gas engines made an appearance was during the 1960s and 1970s oil and energy crisis, but instead of focusing the efforts of the American people on developing a new energy program it was decided to pursue efforts to increase production of oil. Natural gas engines disappeared until recently making a comeback.
In 1959, he delivered the first Ski-doo whose recreational use ensured the company’s prosperity after Armand’s death in 1964 (Canadian Encyclopedia). Bombardier was born in Valcourt on 1907. In his teenage stage, he was fascinated with mechanics. By 1930, he had developed a successful machine that was driven by tracks. In 1937, he designed a vehicle with steerable skis.
John Dalton: John Dalton was born in 1766 in Cumberland, England into a Quaker family. He enjoyed educated and refined women but he never married. He started his career mainly as a meteorologist and wrote books about meteorology until he realized how much chemistry related to his ideas about the atmosphere. Probably his most important contribution to chemistry is the “Atomic Theory” which he came up with in 1803. This theory states that “all matter is made up of atoms and that the atoms of a specific element have distinct characteristics and weight.” This theory was later published in New System of Chemical Philosophy.
We learned a lot about the origin of the moon and also about the early history of the earth. Not to mention all the technological advances that were made such as the advancements in computers which were used to guide the Saturn V rocket into the earth's orbit (Howell). After all the benefits that we have reaped from going to the moon why would we stop. The problem is that with the advancement of technology a lot of space missions that used to require humans no longer do. That is why after George W. Bush announced the launch of a program designed to put men back on the moon many people, including astronomers came out against the idea (David).
