Space travel began in the 1960s with sending humans on single missions into space. Rockets launched into the air and just the tip would land in the ocean after parachuting back to Earth ("Space Shuttle Program," par. 4). The focus of space exploration changed during the 1980s; shifting from the desire for human space flight to the desire to create a reusable spacecraft. Originally called Space Transportation System (STS), NASA created the Space Shuttle Program (SSP) (Heiney, par.
Some of the major mission consisted of launching multiple satellites and interplanetary objects, conducting space science experiments, and the construction of space stations. The space shuttle was made of three main components. First is the Orbiter, which is considered to be the brain of the Space Transportation system. It contains
There are some methods for carrying spacecraft to outer of the Earth, but generally rocket engines used for deep space vehicles. Generally rocket engines are internal combustion heat engines which produce a high temperature gas by combusting a solid, liquid or gaseous fuel with an oxidizer. The hot gas in then allowed to escape through a high expansi... ... middle of paper ... ...ant for success. First of all, the propulsion system moves the space vehicle and helps orbit adjustments and midcourse maneuvers. The attitude determination and control system determines the attitude with respect to an inertial reference frame then control the attitude with thrusters and magnetic torques.
Introduction What is Satellite? Satellite is the moon, planets or a planet orbiting machine or stars. For example, the Earth is the satellite as it orbits around the sun. So the moon, the moon is a satellite as it circles the earth. Usually, the word "satellite" refers to a machine that was launched into space, and move around the earth or other planets in space.
These cause side effects, such as space motion sickness or Space Adaptation Syndrome (SAS) (Shipman, Humans 99). As astronauts enter zero gravity they experience a nauseous sensation which returns with fast actions or movement from a small to a large space in the space vehicle. Those who are more susceptible to this illusory sensation develop space motion sickness and have personalities that are introversive, neurotic, or fearful (DeHart 840-841).

This list is of the other ways to discover these planets: transit timing variation, transit duration variation, gravitational lensing, astrometry, pulsar timing, polarimetry, and so on. In the incredible and unimaginably large universe we live in, we have to have technology to explore into the vast unknown of deep space. With the ambition and strive to learn about the darkness in the sky, we have conquered great obstacles and have achieved so much as humans on one planet. We have been to the moon, along with several planets in our own solar system. Technolo... ... middle of paper ... ...ng and all the other planets and the sun revolved around it.
