Those inspiring words of the first man on the moon sure have made their mark in history. Not only did Apollo 11, the first successful mission in landing man on the moon, affect future space discovery, it impacted the world, by helping people understand how much they can be capable. For those reasons , putting man on the moon was and still is a significant moment to this day for all people.
It was on July 20, 1969 that Neil Armstrong first stepped on the moon, and said his most famous words, "That 's one small step for (a) man, one giant leap for mankind." 45 years later NASA calls the Apollo 11 missions one of the crowning achievements of the 20th century. Started after President Kennedy’s speech to send a man to the moon, NASA had to play catch up in order to beat the Soviet Union and become the first country to land a man on the moon.
In 1969, the Apollo 11 launch happened and became something rightfully important to the United States. It was the talk of every news stations and newspapers. These two men, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin had risked their lives to do something the whole world had not done before. They became the first men to walk the moon and this became something historical. After walking the moon, they placed the American flag on it too, and to this day it is still there.
The Apollo 11 was the first mission to send men to the moon and have them take a step on another planetary body. The objective of this mission was to complete a national goal of a lunar landing set by President John F. Kennedy. People all around the world were anxiously waiting to see the mission fail or succeed; everyone had heard about it from newspapers to the television, and even going to see Apollo 11 launch in person. Two articles had been made to show the dangerous circumstances Armstrong and Aldrin would have faced outside of Earth in the unknown outer space. Another article shows the success of the two men sacrificing their lives to achieve something no man has ever done. “In Event of Moon Disaster” and “The July 16, 1969, Launch: A Symbol of Man’s Greatness” are two articles that have different purposes and how effective they have been, are affected by speaker, audience, and subject, and each article appeals to its own senses of logos, ethos, and pathos. The biggest benefit of Apollo was the inspiration it gave to a growing generation to get into science and aerospace-Buzz Aldrin.
Although this historical event was in fact a victory over the Russians, the fact that we had the engineering capabilities to put a man on the moon was far more important. Each step of the Apollo missions tested a different aspect of what would be the final mission, putting a man on the moon. The main concern of the mission was getting Armstrong and Aldrin down to the surface and back home safely. Genuine experimentation did not occur until NASA gained confidence in their ability to send astronauts to the moon. Upon contact with the moon’s surface, Armstrong and Aldrin unveiled and read the commemorative plaque on the lunar module’s leg, stuck the U.S. flag in the ground, and then spoke to the current president, Richard Nixon. Most of the science done on the moon included the planting of seismic equipment and a laser ranging reflector, the collection of rock and soil samples, and measuring the trajectory of regolith
On May 25, 1961 President John F. Kennedy paved the way for the world’s first lunar landing when he announced the US’s ambitious goal to place an American on the moon before the end of the decade. This historic announcement was fueled by desires to beat the Soviet Union, and show the United State’s dominance, the need for a uniting cause among the American people, and a desire to lead the world in the scientific field.
In 1961, the United States of America was embroiled in the Cold War with the Soviet Union. This confrontation was taking place not only on land, sea and air, but in space as well. On May 25th, 1961 recently elected US President John F. Kennedy addressed a joint session of Congress, during which he outlined his now famous Man on the Moon challenge. It was through this ambitious dream that the creation of the National Aeronautical Space Administration (NASA) came about, which President Kennedy challenged to put a man on the moon by the end of the decade. Although he didn't live to see the achievement of his dreams, the United States successfully landed Astronauts Neil Armstrong and Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin on the moon on July 20, 1969 and
On July 16, 1969, NASA launched a shuttle into space containing Neil Armstrong and Edwin Aldrin. They were going to be the first people to step foot on the Moon. This mission into the unknown caused a commotion on Earth. Many reputable news sources across the world created various sources about this event. These are weighted with the high emotions that ran through the world as well as the facts gathered as the brave men first put their footprints on the barren surface of the Moon. The creators of each peice used logos, pathos, and ethos to get the desired response from their audiences.
Neil Armstrong, one of the astronauts on the landing module, became the first man to walk on the moon on Monday July 21, 1969. As he stepped off the ladder onto the moon, Armstrong declared, "That's one small step for [a] man, one giant leap for mankind." After about twelve minutes, Buzz Aldrin joined him on the surface. For two and a half hours the astronauts collected samples,
On July 20, 1969, humanity did itself proud in spite of all its wars, sadism, hatred, and insanity. We set foot on another planet. Men walked on the moon. This changed our belief in what we could accomplish.
"One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind," said by Neil Armstrong as he took his first steps on the moon during the NASA Apollo 11 expedition to the moon. No man has ever been to the moon before and NASA, The National Aeronautics and Space Administration, was the first to get someone to land on the moon. NASA has had many great accomplishments in exploring the "new frontier" that have affected the United States ever since it was first created in July 1958. The idea for NASA first started when the Soviet Union launched the first satellite on October 4, 1957. United States started up its own space travel program and started to work on its own projects that would be better in than the Soviet Union's. This all started the great
On May 25, 1961 President John F. Kennedy gave an inspirational speech stating, “I believe this nation should commit itself to achieving the goal, before this decade is out, of landing a man on the moon and returning him safely to Earth” (“Apollo 11”). This small statement would make a huge impact on the world. Amazingly enough a short eight years later Apollo 11 would lift off from Kennedy Space Center. Inside would contain two men, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin, who would live out the rest of their lives in fame of being the first humans on the
Wow, can you believe it has almost been 50 years since the Space Race. It is just unbelievable, and we still travel to space today. One of the traffic accomplishments we did, was that we were the first to land a man on the moon. It sparked an uprising, and gave our nation great pride. But, in the end, it's thanks to the chivalrous astronauts, the perilous mission, and their legacy, that we succeeded.
The Apollo 11 mission was one of the most significant events in the space Race between the United States and the Soviet Union. after the USSR launched Sputnik, the first satellite, and successfully sent a man into space, America rushed to develop the technology that the Soviets already had, prompting the creation of the Apollo program. Apollo 11 was a mission to complete the first manned lunar landing. The mission was considered a great success, and was a win for the United States in the Space Race. The Apollo 11 mission had a crew of three men: Neil Armstrong, the commander, Buzz Aldrin, the lunar module pilot, and Michael Collins, the Command module pilot. All three men had previous experience in space on various Gemini missions. Armstrong
July 16th, 1969. It’s a peaceful morning at Cape Canaveral with pleasant temperatures and little wind. All is calm. Suddenly, a tremendous roar shatters the morning as the crew of Apollo 11 blast off toward the moon, riding the biggest rocket ever created. Burning 20 tons of explosive fuel a second, it propels Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, and Michael Collins into history. The spacecraft lands four days later on the moon. Millions watched as men took the first steps on a strange place 238,900 miles away, or 9 and ½ times around the earth. After placing America’s flag among the lunar rocks, the Apollo 11 crew lit their engines and headed for the small blue sphere we call home, splashing down safely in the ocean and completing Kennedy’s
