That is because the Moon's gravity is only 17% of Earth's gravity. You would float into the dark sky, and if you weren't attached to anything stationary, you would float off into outer space, and probably never return. No doubt that the Moon has been in existence for a long time, there are still many millions of years left for us to explore what the Moon has in store for us. The age of the moon is quite controversial. Scientists have studied the Moon to try to give it an approximate age.
So, will Americans ever know the real truth about the moon landings? What one's eyes see, one believes. So, from all the evidence that NASA obtained, it proves that they really did send men to the moon in 1969. Works Cited "Apollo Investigation." Aulis online.
In the human mind the moon can be interpreted as many different things. For example, some may think the moon is a god, Heaven, Hell, or sometimes even as a whole other Earth (Springer 252). When Herge was born at the beginning of the twenty century a piece of literature called From the Earth to the Moon written by Jules Verne’s was possible where the ideas of the moon stem from (Goddin 100). NASA is planning on sending humans back to the moon in a mission called “solid beginnings” in the future. For the past three decades the moon hasn’t been the main focus with all of the other planets such as: Venus and Mars (Lawer 612).Some people believe that the core of the moons material raised up and went to the sur... ... middle of paper ... ...fter the new moon, the sunlit portion increases, but less than a half, so it is waxing crescent (Hisle Parker 49).
Recently, NASA has been spending billions of dollars in researching our second nearest planet, Mars. In understanding the scientific importance that such research can mean, the United States is justified in spending this money on NASA space missions to Mars. President John F. Kennedy said in 1961 that he believed that the United States could put a man on the moon before the end of the decade. Unfortunately, he never lived to see this prophetic feat performed. But in July of 1969, Neil Armstrong stepped foot on the moon before live audiences around the world.
Mars: Is There Life Out There? Since 1976, when the Viking Landers took off toward the red planet, people have been wondering if there is life on Mars. There have been questions of pictures taken from Mars and skepticism about why some of the recent landings have failed. Scientists, up till now, have been doubtful about life on Mars. Everything changed on August 7, 1996, when NASA and President Clinton told the world that a very primitive life form had been found in a meteorite, from 1984.
So many began to believe this is true. Today, there is still talk of this "Moon Hoax". There are many things that one can say doesn't make sense about the whole idea of landing on the moon. Most astronauts that have landed on the moon have brought back samples of a type of Lunar rock. According to Dr. Sten Odenwald, we have accumulated at least 841.6 pounds of moon rock.. ?Moon Hoax?
Analysis of “The Moon: Cold, Wet, and Breathing.” The article “Top 100 Stories of 2009 #16: The Moon: Cold, Wet, and Breathing” from DiscoveryMagazine.com discusses the LCROSS mission of 2009. This is a Moon mission conducted to search for the presence of water (Barone 2009). The mission is an important part of the ultimate goal of visiting the Moon and establishing a Moon base (NASA 2005). The article is written to expand upon what occurred during the LCROSS mission (Barone 2009). LCROSS stands for Lunar Crater Observation and Sensing Spacecraft.
This spacecraft was named after Galileo Galileo, the first modern astronomer. In the 1970’s a few other spacecraft’s, such as Voyager 1 and 2 and Pioneer 10 and 11, scouted Jupiter but they were unable to stay for an extended period of time and the amount of information they brought back to Earth was limited. Scientist wanted a spacecraft that could stick around for an extended period of time and gather more detailed information about Jupiter’s environment thus the idea of Galileo was formed. On October 18, 1986 the Space shuttle Atlantis, carrying the Galileo, was launched. Shannon Lucid was the Astronaut that performed the maneuvers that started this spacecraft on its long journey.
Effects of the Moon Walk On July 21, 1969 three men impacted the world in a big way. Neil Armstrong, Michael Collins, and Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin were not the first men to travel in space but they were the first to walk on the moon. Eight years previously, President John F. Kennedy made a speech to the people of the United States that it should be a national goal to put a man on the moon by the end of the decade. During the Cold War the United States and the Soviet Union were a “who’s bigger and better” contest with each other and space exploration was a part of that. The Soviet Union had begun the space race in 1957 with the launch of Sputnik I, an artificial satellite.
On August 17th, 1958, the US set its sights upon the moon with the Pioneer 0 but it exploded in its first stages of ascension. It was followed later in the year by Pioneer 1 and Pioneer 3 both lunar orbiters, but again failure because both separately failed to reach atmospheric escape velocity.The following years Pioneer 4 and 5 were launched as space probes and are presently still in solar orbit. In 1962, the Aerobee Rocket was launched and observed the first x-ray star. In the 1960's, NASA began the Ranger space probe program. They were NASA's earliest Moon exploration program probes.
