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.
It shows how life is fragile and should be cherished and not to take life for granted. Upon discovering the asteroid, NASA gives some everyday drillers the option of saving the planet. The main theme is that a meteorite is heading to earth in a matter of a few weeks. This meteor is the size of Texas and will destroy the planet. There would be no life forms that would survive, to include the planet if the meteor were to hit earth.
“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."
Is there a lot of economic benefit from going to the moon? NASA has discovered a lot of water on the moon. In 2009 NASA crashed a rocket into the moon. NASA says they have detected 100 kg of water. This led many people to suggest that water should be extracted from the moon since we are running out of fresh water here on earth.
Along with the tangible contributions that NASA has given, it has also added many intangibles that have changed the way people think about the universe and life itself. From acne treatments to food supplements, NASA has directly and indirectly revolutionized the way Americans live forever. It is in the best interest of the United States for NASA to continue to receive federal funding and it should not be disbanded because it has given birth to several important technological advances, it has helped us learn more about our universe and other planets, and it may someday lead us to the colonization of other planets. The first major area that NASA has had an impact on is the medical field. Since the health of those in outer space is a top priority, NASA has had many of its astronaut technologies transformed to be used in other ways, such as sports safety.
In 1965, NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) took our first close up picture of Mars. Since then, spacecraft voyages to Mars have revealed a world a lot like ours. (Mars Exploration Program, 1) “The planet Mars- crimson and bright, filling our telescopes with vague intimations of an almost familiar landform,” says David Grinspoon, an American space scientist. (Quotes on Mars, 1) Due to new research and technology NASA has found water on Mars and is conducting new missions to get airplanes or someday maybe even humans to Mars. Could there be life on Mars?
Was the Air War in World War I an Experiment? Submitted by: Tyler Barnes Course code: CHC 2D Submitted to: Mr.Fuciarelli Due Date: Tuesday, May 21st,2013 Was an airplane ever thought to be an effective weapon in war or was it just an experiment? The airplane could be the most useless part of World War I. As the Allied forces thought it could be a turning point in the war it became known that the airplane resulted in numerous deaths in World War I. At the beginning of the war numerous pilots died even during recon.
A meteor struck the moon and moved it closer into orbit changing centrifugal forces and causing worldwide tidal waves, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, and that’s just the start. Without a care in the world is how Miranda’s life was at the beginning. A normal lifestyle is what she lived. She lost her best friend when Becky passed away. That was the cause of Miranda, Sammi, and Megan to grow apart, and their strong friendship would never be the same.
