They are ready for their mission to go the moon! John wants to be an astronaut when his older and Bob wants to be a scientist and an astronaut. After 5 minutes they blasted off into space and they went past the atmosphere with their super fast spaceship. The spaceship was made of metal and iron.

It took a monumental effort by the National Air and Space Administration (NASA) and billions of dollars to reach this point. The Apollo Missions’ accidents, successes, and space leadership have drastically changed our country’s space program. On the 25th of May, President Kennedy shocked the nation with his historical speech to put an American on the moon before the decade was out. “We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard!” Kennedy announced. In the rest of his speech he challenged the nation’s smartest minds to build a rocket capable of lifting a man to the Moon and returning him safely to the earth.

. In movies like Space Cowboys and Armageddon, show the shooting up of rockets into space as a glorious experience. One of the most recognized visions of space culture is this romantic ideal of space being the final frontier. This romantic ideal connects to neo-global-colonialism, being able to conquer and colonized space, which gives Americans the acumen that they are the Super world power that imposes domination. For example, in Tom Wolfe’s book the Right Stuff, shows astronauts as womanizer, intrepid men, who are battling and trying to conquer the final frontier, in the space race against Soviet Union.
The monomyth, often times called “The Hero’s Journey” or “The hero with a thousand faces”, includes the departure, initiation, and return stages (Campbell). In these stages the hero leaves his normal life behind, fulfills him/herself in some activity, and returns as a hero (Campbell). These stages can be applied to a smash hit released in 2009, a science-fiction film titled Star Trek. James T. Kirk in Star Trek closely follows Campbell’s theory as he departs from his childhood home in Iowa, fights a rogue Romulan enemy, and returns to Earth as a Starfleet captain. The movie starts out with a spectacular space battle that showcases James’ father’s valor as he sacrifices himself to save the crew of his condemned starship.

Why can’t I be the first person to send people to space?” So he thought up a plan that regular everyday people for twenty-two million dollars we could finally explore what it’s like to view earth from space without years of college to be an astronaut. The rocket that is sending people up to space is called the AXE that is specialized for humans to have a nice long relaxing trip to space and they are hoping to build many more other rockets like this and hopefully one day lower the price so you don’t have to be a millionaire. There were twenty-two lucky people who some famous and other not so famous who got sent on this rockets first flight to space.

The spaceships were soon brought back to the main hall of the Thailian underground civilization.
