Early in 1959, Luna I made a trip past the moon, and on September 14,1959, Luna II crashed on the moon. Luna II was truly the first actual visit by spacecraft to another object in space (McArthur, 29-30). The United States started the Apollo mission with the goals of reaching the moon and sending people to land on the moon safely. The Apollo missions go off to a rough start when on January 27, 1967, Apollo I caught on fire during the preflight test. Apollo II-VI where unmanned moon orbiter space crafts. Apollo VII was launched on October 11, 1968, and had three peope on board.It was in spaced for a little bit less than 11 days and in that time it orbted the moon colecting data. Apollo VIII was launched on December 21, 1968 and was in space over christmas and on christma eve they made a telecast were the astronauts red verses from the bible. On Apollo VII they also made five other telecasts. Apollo IX was launched on March 3, 1969, and collected more data on the moon and experimented with photography. Apollo X was launched May 18, 1969 and while in orbit tracked the moon's main landmarks. On July 16,1969, Apollo 11 blasted into space with Neil Armstrong, Edwin Aldrin, and Michael Collins (Loff). When it came time to attempt to and on the moon mission control tried to guide Apollo 11 somewhere Armstrong fet was too risky so he took over and went to land somewhere
Apollo 13 mission to the moon was suddenly derailed, when one of the three oxygen tanks exploded, and another failing simply as collateral damage from the explosion, therefore leaving one oxygen tank for the three astronauts aboard Apollo 13. The astronauts included mission commander Jim Lovell, lunar module pilot Fred Haise and command module pilot Jack Swigert (the back-up pilot for Ken Mattingly) found themselves rotating the moon in a small confined space that was designed for only two
In my research, I learned that Frank Borman went on the Gemini 7 mission. I am also a Gemini because my birthday is May 28. The mission was called the Gemini project because only two people were on the spacecraft. Likewise, the Gemini constellation is of the two Gemini twins. Another connection that I have to Frank Borman is that he went on the Gemini mission number 7 and my softball jersey number is 7. I also learned that Frank Borman is part German and I am also a little bit German from my mom. Furthermore, I found that Frank Borman has sinus problems or allergies from cold weather. I also get allergies when it is too cold outside like
Frank Boucher was some Ranger player in my opinion. He was an “Original Ranger”. Among all of the “Original Rangers”, not even Lester Patrick, stayed a Ranger for as long as he did. He contributed 31 years to hockey. He was a club player from 1926 to 1938, was a coach from 1939 to 1948, and was a general manager from 1946 to 1955.
Apollo 11 astronaut Michael Collins was a part of the three person crew that flew to the moon. Logging 266 hours in space. The article http://news.mit.edu states, “Astronaut Michael Collins was part of the three-person crew that flew on mankind’s first mission to land on the moon, but he was the one who remained in orbit and never got to the lunar surface.” What Michael Collins did was huge, and history changing. Changing the way scientist thought of the moon, and collecting information giving us a closer look at things.
The famous athlete Bo Jackson is most well known for his share of talents in the MLB and NFL. Many recognize him due to his more than unique athletic abilities. During his early childhood and throughout his life, Bo had jaw dropping strength that no one could compare to. He could do backflips in thigh high water, and could dunk a stick through a basketball hoop like Michael Jordan.
Benjamin Banneker was an mathematician, scientist, astronomer, surveyor, and writer. Born on November 9, 1731 in Baltimore County, Maryland, Benjamin Banneker became the first African American man of science. Predominantly self-taught with the exception of briefly attending a Quaker school, Benjamin Banneker learned mathematics and mechanical skills through books. He also learned reading and religion from his grandmother, and he later taught himself astronomy by watching the stars (“Mathematician and Astronomer Benjamin Banneker Was Born.”) (PBS). Together, Benjamin Banneker used his knowledge and skills in his accomplishments and contributions in math and in America.
People know Anicius Manlius Severinus Boethius as one of the most accomplished men of his time and beyond. The Roman scholar, poet, orator, musician, and philosopher gave much of his knowledge to the ancient world in his lifetime. Through his writings and translations, Boethius made important contributions to the Middle Ages, and gave people a better understanding of ancient times. Boethius also proved himself to be a gifted man, making him worthy of praise up to today. For these reasons, many remember the life of Boethius.
Seven years later on July 20th 1969 a US rocket landed 238,900 miles from Earth, containing the first men to ever set foot on moon. The space race lasted over ten years and resulted in many scientific achievements for both
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.
Shepard Jr. is the first American man to be launched into space. He was in the Mercury space capsule in a 15 minute suborbital mission (meaning it reaches the atmosphere and falls back on Earth). John H. Glenn Jr. became the first American to orbit Earth on February 20, 1962. After Project Mercury, Project Gemini started. Gemini 4's, Edward H. White Jr. conducted the first spacewalk (when an astronaut get’s out the space vehicle). Project Apollo began to be NASA’S priority in May 25, 1951. President John F. Kennedy announced the plan of launching a man in space to land on the Moon. He used this as a tool to subtly announce the US’s superiority of the Cold War enemies. It took 11 years to carry out. It took $25.4 billion dollars to achieve. This withstood challenges including lives of Roger B. Chaffee, Virgil "Gus" Grissom, and Edward H. White Jr. Jr. after a fire that took place in the Apollo capsule (January 27, 1967). October 1968 they launched different Apollo missions such as Apollo 7 (orbit earth) and Apollo 8 (orbit moon). July 20, 1969 Neil Armstrong steps foot on the Moon after Apollo 11 landed with Edwin E. Buzz Aldrin Jr. Michael Collins remained in the capsule. Apollo 13 almost launched however the oxygen tank exploded. Harrison H. Jack Schmitt was a geologist that was chosen to become an astronaut. NASA and the Soviet Union allied to make the Apollo-Soyuz Test Project (ASTP). It served testing purposes and the crew launched separately,
The trip around the world continued the “space race” between countries. There were other trips into space later on. One of the major space trips years after Glenn was the “man on the moon.” On July twentieth, nineteen sixty-nine, Neil Armstrong, an American astronaut was the first man to walk on the moon. His famous words are “One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.” Space journeys continued the years following the “man on the moon.” Machines are used to record space by taking pictures in order to obtain more information concerning space.
A thirteen-year-old eighth grader has been in concert band for four years and will always be motivated. Playing the French horn is one of Spencer Bauman’s unforeseen talents. Devoted and hardworking, many hours and days go into mastering the instrument. Practicing diligently, Spencer spends an hour Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday at school rehearsing and everyday after school getting private lessons. Eagerly, Spencer Bauman is preparing for All District Concert Band which is a county wide competition. In preparation, he had to memorize four songs at high school level for a judge who will dictate where to play from. The composition also included a chromatic scale, a series of musical notes played in an order, completed at a fast rate without
functioning — providing a detached, impartial, factual account of the day’s most important events—did not apply.”9 While historian and journalist Mark Bourrie argues that “Still, these reporters did give the Canadian public a very vivid and accurate account of the war,”10 he soon provides evidence on the contrary. “The correspondents did succumb to pressure to make heroes of the Canadian and British commanders. The British disappointment at the quality of senior Canadian officers was covered up, while even [respected reporters] succumbed to the pressure to write puff pieces...”11 Thus, through state control of the on-the-ground correspondents and their copy, Canadians did not always receive accurate and objective reporting.
