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.
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).
Seven crew members lost their lives. The high profile nature of the “Teacher in Space” mission required an independent commission to review the accident and risk management processes that were in place at NASA and associates at the time. The “Teacher in Space” Mission • 3. The Space Shuttle Challenger Disaster When the Apollo program finished in the 1970s, NASA had begun planning for the next phase of space exploration, an interplanetary expedition to Mars. This involved three core projects- A Space Shuttle- A reusable transport vehicle A Space Station- The launch platform Manned Mars exploration Due to budgetary constraints, only one of these NASA projects could be supported.
Tsiolovsky used this equation to calculate that the horizontal speed required for a minimal orbit around Earth is 8000m/s and he proposed that the only way that these speeds could be reached were with a multi stage rocket. 34 years after his death a multi stage rocket was used to get a man to the moon. Tsiolkovsky also predicted the fuel that the rocket would burn which were liquid Hydrogen and oxygen. As mentioned before Tsiolkovsky was a visionary and was able to consider the problems that future space travellers may have to deal with. In 1883 he published an article about living I outer space and the effects of that a zero gravity environment would have.
However, the design of the shuttles is aging quickly as the vehicles are reaching retirement. In order to see the damage done to the space tile, the shuttle executed a backwards flip so that the underbelly of the vehicle could be photographed. An instrument boom with a laser scanner was then used to precisely determine the measurements of the hole in the tile. After many ground based simulations of reentry, NASA determined that the aluminum structure beneath the tiles would not become damaged to the point of expensive and timely repairs upon reentry. However, the astronauts onboard were prepared to attempt techniques that had not been done before.
Three dips, or dimming, must be seen for confirmation. The Kepler science team uses ground-based telescopes and the Spitzer Space Telescope to review observations on planet candidates that the spacecraft finds, validating their identify. "The tremendous growth in the number of Earth-size candidates tells us that we're honing in on the planets Kepler was designed to detect: those that are not only Earth-size, but also are potentially habitable," said Natalie Batalha, Kepler deputy science team lead at San Jose State University. "The more data we collect, the keener our eye for finding the smallest planets out at longer orbital periods," she said. The planet, named Kepler-22b, is 2.4 times wider than Earth.
President John F. Kennedy passionately delivered his speech “We choose to go to the moon” at Rice University on September 12, 1962 to persuade citizens to help fund and support the effort of NASA to send a manned spaceflight to the moon. Kennedy’s use of anaphora, specification of possible outcomes and rhetorical questions provides an overwhelming show of his confidence in the United States being the first on the moon. John F. Kennedy repeatedly used anaphora in his speech to strike into the hearts of the people. “Despite the striking fact that most of the scientists… despite the fact that this Nation’s own scientific manpower… despite that, the vast stretches of the unknown…” In this quote, he wanted to emphasize that despite all that we have accomplish we still have more to go. We cannot stop and say we are satisfied with what we have now.
Pamela Anderson 12-04-12 3th period Did we land on the moon? Many people are very interested on the topic of the moon landing subject, best known as the landing Apollo 11 on 1969. Some people believe it was a total fake, and some others do believe it was one of the most important accomplishments that Americans have made up until now. These both sides have their own arguments, and both of them are very convincing, but the non- believers for some reason have very foolish arguments that they themselves believe are logic. President Kennedy was concerned about the U.S falling behind on technology in comparison to the Soviet Union (now Russia).
“Evaluate The Evidence That Suggests The Moon Landing Was A Hoax.” – In President John F. Kennedy's speech to Congress, on May 25, 1961, he expressed a concern that the United States was falling behind the Soviet Union in technology and prestige. He challenged the nation to put a man on the moon before the end of the decade. On July 16, 1969, the Apollo 11 launched from the Kennedy Space Centre. On July 20, 1969, Commander Neil Armstrong became the first man on the moon. He said the historic words, "That's one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind."
