The boundless imagination of the director created the moon, like a living creature, alien-selenites, and a very original way to travel to outer space. I can talk a lot about the scale of the film, "A Trip to the Moon;" it's no wonder many of the descriptions of the film start with the words "one of the first." There are a variety of decorations and costumes, a lot of special effects, and a complete story line. We, who saw on the screen the most incredible things, can hardly imagine what impression this film created among its contemporaries. However, even now it is difficult not to experience genuine joy and delight while watching this amazing film.
The first takes place on the moon, where the climax begins when TMA-1 is found. The second setting is the Inter-planetary ship Discovery, when it is on its way to one of Jupiter's moons. The last setting is actually a lot mini settings because TMA-2 becomes a star gate, which leads to a variety of wondrous places, like an abandoned spaceport and an inhabited sun. The main character in the book 2001: A Space Odyssey is David Bowman, captain of the ship Discovery is in his mid twenties has girlfriend on earth. While on board the Discovery Bowman interacts with his ship mate, Coleman, and the supercomputer, HAL.

The radiation Jupiter produces made it hard for Galileo to come close to the inner moon and scientist thought it would be best to save that for last.

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).
Astrology expands into multiple branches as it’s explored further into each planet and each zodiac, and it becomes a very widespread topic. Astrology is the study of the positions of celestial bodies and their effects on human behavior. It is said that each zodiac creates the characteristics of each individual and is able to predict future outcomes. In Shakespeare’s play Macbeth, three witches were able to predict Macbeth’s future as king. These witches also showed Macbeth three apparitions meant to give him a sense of false confidence, but actually occurred in three unexpected ways.
In our travel to Triton we experience some navigation trouble due to the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter. We had to do some reconfiguring but we managed to make it here on schedule in a few days we should be heading towards Proteus to gather rock and other samples from there. Its now November 15, 2008 and we are orbiting Neptune it's the one of the greatest sites I've ever seen. With its diameter of 49528kms and a mass of1.02x10^26kg,its absolutely enormous its practically unfathomable. I have seen the three storms and they are immense in size, the great dark spot is near the same diameter as the earth.
Celestial objects have amazed the human race ever since history started being recorded. The moon, the stars and all visible heavenly bodies have been studied for thousands of years, millions of people over the decades have dedicated their lives to researching these wondrous objects. The moon alone has been the subject of not only research but endless discoveries as well, and for many others, the moon was a goddess. According to Donald J. Frederick, ancient civilizations like the Mayans deemed the moon as a feminine entity, they worshipped the moon in order to get pregnant. The Greeks called the goddess of the moon by the name Selene, and also adored it.
Instead of the unrestrained women that both holidays celebrate, however, Shakespeare bookends the play with a woman tamed by a man. In the first scene, the moon is spoken of by Theseus and Hippolyta as a measurement of time when Theseus announces, “…four happy days bring in / Another moon: but, O, methinks, how slow / This old moon wanes!

(5.1.235-236 (Shakespeare and Brooks)) Thus the moon takes on another more comical and amusing role in contrast to the darker, more serious roles it holds towards the other groups. Conclusion Returning to the introduction, the moon is not only ever present, it actively influences the proceedings throughout the play, not only connecting characters, but also giving them agency for their actions. Shakespeare once again displays his dexterity with imagery through his manifold portrayals of the moon; one moment merely the indicator of time, the next a symbol of the goddess Diana, at once a symbol of order and chaos, of happiness and discord, fertility and chastity, it encompasses all that transpires on the stage.
This theme begins with Theseus and Hippolyta, appearing in daylight and using the contrast of daylight and the moon to talk about their nuptials. “Now, fair Hippolyta, our nuptial hour Draws on apace. Four happy days bring in another moon. But oh, methinks how slow This old moon wanes! She lingers my desires, Like to a step dame or a dowager Long withering out a young man’s revenue.
