The Space Race - September 2, 1945, the two most powerful nations in the world broke into a war of pride and power, known as the Cold War. The Soviet Union and the United States battled fiercely for a reputation that would be venerated for ages to come. Aggressively, these two nations pushed to be the greatest in the world through politics, weapons, and science. These actions and attitudes significantly promoted the need for space exploration, and soon fueled a pursuit that altered history forever. The space race had many motivations and many things that kept the competition going....   [tags: Space Program]

The Space Race - ... Much like two siblings competing, the United States and Soviet Union were engaged in a battle of wit and strategy. Each nation strained to prove the benefits of their political and philosophical systems. The space race, although it had militaristic values, was primarily based on administrative ideology. In the struggle for superiority, the populace of both nations took great pride in their space programs. The events of the time were so meaningful that the United States, specifically President Eisenhower, created the National Aeronautics and Space Administration in July of 1958 (“American Experience: Race to the Moon” 1)....   [tags: Space Exploration ]

But the spotlight was to move from the United States and to the U.S.S.R in 1957. 1957 was an incredible year for international space endeavors and to the Soviets, as well. In two months the Russians were able to, do what the American’s should have been able to do the previous year, put two satellites into orbit. October 5, 1957 and November 2, 1957, the Russians sent up Sputnik I and II.

Elevators to Space - The idea of an elevator into space is not a new one. First contemplated by a Russian scientist in 1895, it was not truly popularized until Arthur C. Clarke’s novel Fountains of Paradise in 1978. The idea is so simple, it seems absurd. A tether is extended from the surface of the earth, and using a combination of gravity and centrifugal force, is extended outwards. Vehicles can then scale this tether, removing the need for costly rockets. Arthur C. Clarke claims that the space elevator is an attainable goal, and we will have one “about 10 years after people stop laughing.” However, before it can be constructed, there are many engineering issues that need to be worked out....   [tags: physics space elevator] 1428 words

The space shuttle was a tremendous technological achievement that enabled NASA to send millions of tons of cargo and equipment into low Earth obit, but its successor, the Constellation Program, which relies on rockets and crew capsules much like NASA’s early space programs, represents a step backward in space exploration vehicle design (“Propulsion Systems”, 2003)....   [tags: Space Exploration ]

At the time, this was a convenient project to choose: while it allowed the two nations to compete in a supposedly peaceful area, proving their scientific achievements, the work on rockets also fed directly into work on the inter-continental ballistic missiles which would allow them to strike at each other with nuclear weapons in the event of war....   [tags: essays research papers] 934 words
