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
I think this is supposed to represent how far society has come throughout the centuries. From when we communicated to future generations by stone carvings, to now, when our technology is advanced enough to take us beyond earth’s atmosphere. I interpreted the art as showing what we can create without spoiling nature’s glow, and the rocket as showing that even the greatest inventions can cause harm to our world. This really goes to show how much progress humans have made, but it also demonstrates the cost that comes with monumental steps in history. When the rocket blasts off into outer space, part of it dissembles and shards of metal erupt through the sky, drifting further and further into the distance.
Scientists have theories that one or a few meteors hit the Earth, but they cannot be sure due to the lack of evidence on the matter. The element, Iridium, plays a key role as vital evidence in these theories. The main theory to the extinction of dinosaurs is called the Alvarez hypothesis, first created by Luis and Walter Alvarez in 1980. This hypothesis states that the mass extinction of life on Earth sixty-five million years ago was due to one big meteor colliding with the Earth. The team of scientists, led by Walter Alvarez and his son Luis, went to the Yucatan Peninsula, where proof of a giant meteor strike is present.
The two elements used in the explosion are already radioactively unstable as the stand as elements but, they are forced to release their radioactive particles. When these two elements are left alone, without anything affecting it, it will take centuries to release their radioactive particles. Long after World War II, the Soviet Union finally created its own Atomic Bomb. Once the United States had heard of this news, President Harry S. Truman began the construction of the Hydrogen bomb. This
Astronauts already have to deal with boredom and a lack of gourmet meals, now they have to deal with disrupted sleep patterns. NASA have put the members of the Mars 500 mission on a mock spaceship to see if a trip to Mars is even possible. As of January 17 2013, The soldiers only have 62 days left of their fake moon endeavor and are showing major signs of sleep deprivation and insomnia. The experiment was as real as it could get. They vessel would move, built in communication delays were triggered, and the doors were sealed shut so they couldn’t get out as if they were really in space.
The Core The Core is a movie made by Paramount Pictures back in 2003. The concept of this movie focuses on a geological catastrophe that brings forth the end of the world; when the liquid outer core inside the Earth ceased to rotate. Some basic scientific facts are accurate in the movie; however, their implication is not of concern but rather entertainment and adventure. The concept of the movie is to have a team of scientists get to the outer core of the Earth and get it to rotate again so that the Earth’s magnetic field would regenerate. The Earth’s interior was presented accurately in the movie: crust, mantle, outer core, and inner core.

These came in the form of spacex, the government contracted space company, and Tesla, the company that specializes in creating better battery technology and primarily places it into cars. With spacex Elon was just trying to fulfill one of his oldest dreams. To be born on earth and to die on mars. The only problem he ran into was that innovation on the spacial frontier had essentially died with the space race. This forced him to create his own company in which he had no guarantee would succeed.
It is widely agreed that an asteroid, about 10 kilometers across, struck just off the coast of the Yucatan peninsula 65 years ago. According to scientists saying that dinosaur extinction came quickly, the impact must have spelled the violent end to the dinosaurs’ lives. Some scientists think the answers to whether dinosaurs lost their dominance quickly or gradually lie within the remnants of volcanoes. Massive beds of ancient lava found around the world depict an Earth 65 to 70 million years ago where volcanic eruptions were common. Other scientists say that the repositioning of the world’s landmasses was disastrous for dinosaurs.
Brief Introduction of Avatar Avatar tells a story that in 2154, because of severe energy crisis in the Earth endangering human beings survival and development, scientists and mining companies make their efforts to explore the energy in outer space, and the planet ‘Pandora’ with opulent energy, unobtainium, becomes a target. In order to explore and mine the energy, humans have to get acquaintance to the original inhabitants, the Na’vi, who hate humans to destroy and break the balance of their environment. But with the creation of Avatar, the cloned Na’vi, humans especially Jack Sully succeed to deceive the Na’vi and win their trust. After surrendered himself to the Na’vi’s life and habits, Jack acquire a new sense of understanding and meaning of nature. When the mining project take off, Jack are aware of the irreversible destructions made by the humans.
