Is there life on Mars? In many books and movies, little green aliens from Mars invade Earth. In real life, Mars is the planet being invaded--by strange-looking machines from Earth. In August, NASA, the U.S. space agency, launched a spacecraft to Mars. It is called an orbiter because it will orbit, or circle, the fourth planet from the sun.
$1.7 billion is used JUST to create a space shuttle, $450 million per mission is used just to launch a space shuttle and $100 billion is used to create an international space station. Points: Deaths in space travel Space travel cost a lot of money Space travel is detrimental to health First point: The history of space travel has had a number of incidents that resulted in deaths of astronauts during space missions. EIGHTEEN astronauts have died in FOUR spaceflight missions by nationality twelve Americans, four Russians, one Indian, and one Israeli. Deaths even took place in spaceflight trainings, a total of ELEVEN men have died during spaceflight training by nationality eight Americans and three Russians. Six of these died from jet crashes, one drowned during water recovery training, and four died due to fires in pure oxygen environments.
I always was curious about space and today I wonder if i will still be alive when we reach mars or colonize the moon. It seems like we have been in space for a while now ever since 41 years ago when NASA sent astronauts on to the moon in 1969 but I know this is only the beginning of space exploration for humans. I know that even 100 years from now when most of us reading this we not be alive we wont be exploring space like the way it is conveyed in movies anytime soon even in the next 200 years I assume. I do know though by 200 years in the future we humans should have the technology and intelligence to explore our solar system such as Saturn's moons like Europa and answer the old question of weather their actually is life under its surface and if their is life in our solar system other than on earth. I would only wonder that by the 26th century that humans as a race would be vary advanced in space exploration and would be exploring deep into space to look for other planets and solar systems and possible other life in the universe.
Zach W. Wilkes Honors English III Mrs. Clemmons 27 November 2012 3nD1ezZxH0r150nzXxX420 – Why we should continue to fund Space Exploration. How many of you remember what happened on February 1st, 2003? Let’s talk about what happened that day. Just after space shuttle Columbia began its journey into space the shuttle’s left wing was damaged by a piece of foam insulation that broke off from the external fuel tank. The resulting damage proved fatal during Columbia’s reentry through the earth’s atmosphere, where friction can produce temperatures of up to 3000 degrees.
When the movie premiered forty years ago, living and working in space was definitely "science fiction". Today, the reality is that three resident crew members are aboard the International Space Station 365 days of the year - operating one of the most complicated engineering projects in our technological history. This reality sees us continually pushing the boundaries of 21st century scientific, technological and engineering prototypes. Science fiction becoming more of a reality...? Although we haven't yet colonized the moon, NASA has a plan in place to return to the moon by 2020 and maintain a permanent presence there.
Bjorn Warford Research Paper Space Hazards SpaceZ is in the midst of their mission to visit and colonize Mars. They have already developed the technology to get to Mars and have already underwent several cargo missions in which equipment, supplies, and more were transported to Mars to facilitate the colonization process and to save space on the manned flight. The plan is without a doubt following the necessary course laid out for success, however, all of that was about to change. Space proves to create problems for the mission and its crew. The crew encounters a few obstacles on their trip such as the effects of long-term space flights and radiation exposure, as well as a run in with space hazards.
Moon Landing Hoax? Or Real? The quotes, “Houston, Tranquility Base here. The Eagle has landed,” and, “This is one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind,” have echoed throughout the world since the legendary landing of the spacecraft, Apollo 11, on the moon. This expedition alighted astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin on the surface of the moon on July 20th, 1969 which enabled them to collect the first samples from another planetary body (1).
Proofs of the creation theory, such as the flood, and other general information, such as Grand Canyon back up the existence of dinosaurs, and those proofs are mostly precise. The first evolution theory that most of people believe is the volcanoes’ eruption. According to the Korean Internet News, “About the end of the period of when dinosaurs were existed, a lot of main volcanoes erupted because of the moving of the earth’s crust.” (“Dinosaurs) As the volcanoes erupted, the dust from the volcanoes made a huge dust cloud, (Weems) and it block the sun’s light and heat. Because of that, the earth’s temperature suddenly went down, and the planktons and some land animal’s organism could not photosynthesis, and died a lot. (When) Those organisms are at the bottom of the food chain, so automatically, the food chain will break out.
In the movie "Armageddon", a huge asteroid was on its way to destroy the Earth and everyone that lived on it until an American telescope saw it in space and an American oil driller saved the day! How that came about is way beyond me, but personally I would let some other scientists get involved from other countries as we in America can't even make a car that runs good for five years! Besides movies, there is
Nowadays, a lot of developed countries have their interests in travelling to the moon. For example, Japan has plans for a lunar village; Chinese are building robots to explore the lunar surface. Also Russian scientists plan to build a base there. In contrary, another group of people, think that space exploration is nothing more than a waste of money. At that time when millions of people does not have any access to food.
