For example, the first book which was on this subject was made by Bill Kaysing who he himself published was called ‘’We never went to the Moon: America’s Thirty Billion Dollar Swindle’’. It was released in 1974 which was just after two Apollo missions were succeeded. This is one of the mass public medias that made people believed that it was an hoax. Another example which reinforced this idea is a film called Capricorn One. This movie is about a mission similar to the Apollo’s where several astronauts are ready to take off to space, but there was a problem with the rocket so they had to fake it to make the public believe.
Introduction NASA launched the first space shuttle, Columbia, on April 12, 1981; exactly twenty years after the first manned space mission (Van Dijk, 2010). The launch of these reusable re-entry space vehicles signaled a new phase in space exploration. The expectations placed on the program included the delivery of satellites into orbit and scientific experimentation with an ever-increasing frequency. As the number of missions per year increased, so did reliance on subjective knowledge and experience rather than on solid data. On January 28, 1986, on the twenty-fifth mission of the shuttle program, the shuttle Challenger exploded into flames shortly after lift-off.
After this mission Glenn became a Hero John F. Kennedy gave him the NASA distinguished service medal and numerous accolades. NASA then selects a second group of astronauts to orbit around the earth six times. IN 1965 ED white American astronaut does the first moon walk. THE moon landing mission by NASA was on July 16 1969 Apollo 11 was launch from JFK space center on July 20 the Apollo 11 had landed on the moon, and Neil
NASA has sent many space craft to the moon. Apollo 13 really breaks the mold when several technical difficulties occur, during the flight that causes the three brave pilots to capture the true meaning of being a pilot.Apollo 13 was launched from Cape Kennedy, Florida, by a giant Saturn V launch vehicle and only minutes later was inserted into orbit around Earth. About 2 1/2 hours after launch, the still-attached S IVB third stage was reignited to provide the final boost toward the Moon. The transposition maneuver was carried out efficiently, and soon Apollo 13 was coasting toward the Moon on a path so accurate that the first planned course adjustment was canceled. Later in the mission, the craft underwent a hybrid transfer maneuver to facilitate landing in the
Apollo 17 was the eleventh and final mission of the United States' Apollo program, the sixth mission to land humans on the Moon. Launched at 12:33 a.m. Eastern Standard Time (EST) on December 7, 1972, with a three-member crew consisting of Commander Eugene Cernan, Command Module Pilot Ronald Evans, and Lunar Module Pilot Harrison Schmitt, Apollo 17 remains the most recent manned Moon landing and the most recent crewed flight beyond low Earth orbit. After Apollo 17, extra Apollo spacecraft were used in the Skylab and Apollo-Soyuz Test Project programs. Apollo 17 was the sixth Apollo lunar landing, the first night launch of a U.S. human spaceflight and the final crewed launch of a Saturn V rocket. It was a "J-type mission", missions including three-day lunar surface stays, extended scientific capability, and the third Lunar Roving Vehicle.
The Space shuttle Challenger was NASA’s second vehicle to be put into service however; on January 28, 1986 it would make its final departure from Kennedy Space Center. Seventy three seconds into flight two O-rings located in the right rocket booster disintegrated causing flames to escape their designated area and dislodge the

The two spacecraft’s were known as Orbiter Odyssey and lander Aquarius. The crew lived in Odyssey on the journey to the moon. Upon closing in on the moon, mission controller Sy Liebergot saw a low-pressure warning signal on a hydrogen tank in Odyssey. Swigert flipped the switch for the routine procedure known as a "cryo stir," which was supposed to stop the oxygen from settling into layers. The entire spacecraft began to quake.
Michael Squillacote 9/28/11 Professor Blum Business paper Challenger Shuttle The Challenger space shuttle was set off to launch on January 28th 1987. This turned into a tragic day for NASA and the United States. At 11:38 am Challenger took of from the launch pad. Everything was going smoothly until 73 seconds into the flight the shuttle disintegrated over the Atlantic Ocean killing seven astronauts. There are a few different theories on what went wrong to the shuttle.
Cosmic Engine The international space station is a large spacecraft which orbits around Earth at 400km. It is also a science lab built by the work of many countries. It is also a place where astronauts live. The space station is made of many pieces put together in space by astronauts. The first international space station was launched in 1998 with the US, Brazil, Japan and Canada In a project known as Freedom.
