Many of the items such as Fire Resistant Reinforcements and Breathing Systems have saved lives on Earth. The Fire Resistant Reinforcements save hundreds and thousands of lives because a few extra minutes or even seconds counts during a fire. This is very true in an event such as 9/11. This technology could be a lifesaver for so many try to get out of a collapsing building. Without NASA that technology could never have been created and it would not be saving lives right now. Also the Clean Burning Cars although not completely perfected are making our world better by stopping pollution and climate change on Earth. Climate change is when the climate changes on Earth and usually is when it gets warmer. It is mainly caused by the burning of fossil fuels which is what most cars do in order to function. With this technology the world will have a better future away from the climate changing and the ice caps melting. Radio Systems also play a big part in society. Without NASA we might not even have a lot of the communication methods we have today. We might not even have had phones or the internet yet. NASA has improved the lives of people on Earth currently and for people on Earth in the
One reason why technology is good is that it has saved many lives. We have new machines to scan bodies and test blood and other fluids so that doctors can find diseases and
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) is one of the leading organizations in space technology and research. In the past 60 years, NASA has sent numerous satellites, telescopes and crew modules into space. Despite drawbacks in launch failures and lack of funding, NASA continues to focus on its mission in space exploration and technological advancement. One of NASA’s projects is to explore deep space, in which entails a manned missions to Mars, exploration of the asteroid belt, and beyond. With these goals in mind, NASA has engineered new rocketry and even created a program to better allocate costs of such conquests. With these new advancements, NASA has created a new age of how space travel is carried out.
Bill Gates once mentioned,“We’re changing the world with technology.” During the 1940s the US was in war with Japan and the US used technology to their advantage by dropping nuclear bombs on Japan and saving many Americans lives.Now technology benifits people every were. For example technology can help people clean,cook, remind us and make many things. In the story “There Will Come Soft Rains” by Ray Bradbury it mentions how technology benefits society helping with everyday tasks
As long as there have been people in this world, technology and science have existed. Technology is a powerful force which helped in the development of civilization and is a part of our system of culture that reflects its values. Technology has become very complex over the years and today
Going back to the moon has been a question in the scientific community ever since man landed on the moon in 1969 and not returning since the 1970s. Scientists have debated whether not going back to the moon is a something we need to do. “Yes America has been there. That doesn’t mean it’s not worth going back... NASA’s plan for the moon include just short, Apollo-style stopovers but eventually a moon base." (Doeden 10) Going back to the moon is something that people should be very passionate about. It was a great achievement to travel to somewhere seen as unreachable even today. But some people think that we are passed going to the moon and we should look farther into space. Many science enthusiasts want to see people going to Mars or an even
Plato once stated,”Necessity is the mother of invention,”He meant our needs help to create inventions. People invent things to help make our lives easier. Many inventions make our lives better by addressing a problem that we might have, but often there are bad side affects to all this technology. Even though technology is a great thing and gets better and better every day is it really helping our society or is it hurting our society.
The idea of colonizing the Moon sparks controversy and while there are plenty of downsides, the benefit will be far superior and eliminate any degrading it may cause. Of course, the Moon is a dead, inactive planet as of now, but we can spark light on the satellite. After getting past the debt of colonizing the moon, we will have the potential for building a fueling station and we should have a backup plan for when nuclear war does inevitably happen.
Technology is present in our daily lives. It could be used positively or negatively to impact daily life. Technology has been integrated into military weapons and spy gear, according to The White House “Our defense science and technology investment enables us to counter military threats and to overcome any advantages that adversaries may seek” (The White House 1995). Our government spends thousands of dollars on maintaining military advantages through science and technology. When our government spends that much money on technology, it helps protect the citizens, protect our country, and create peace in regions critical to the U.S. However, the U.S hasn’t always used our military advantages for the best. Our military have killed many innocent civilians targeting our enemy after September 11th and our military should pay for their war crimes like the government makes other countries pay for theirs.
Proposed by John F. Kennedy to Congress on May 25, 1961, the Apollo Program, or “Project Apollo,” was the US National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s third exploratory program and the first project worldwide to attempt the tremendous endeavor putting a man on the moon. After sufficient studying over a five year period, the first flight, unmanned, was launched in 1966. Two years later, the first flight with a crew took place (Apollo 7, October 1968). Overall, the project sent up 19 spacecrafts using multiple launch vehicle designs. It achieved a fairly positive rate of 16 successes to three failures (total and partial). The best known flights of the program are the tragedy of Apollo 13 and the first manned moon landing with Apollo 11.
Asid from Aliens and Ufos being kept at Area 51, another popular conspiracy theory is the 1969 moon landing was staged at Area 51. A scenario by a conspiracy writer states that NASA knew that at the time it would be impossible to send astronauts to the moon because of the risk of lethal radiation.The moon landing had to be faked to avoid embarrassment and ensure future funding for NASA. On the day of the rocket launch, they staged an actual rocket launch but no one was inside. The Apollo crew was transferred to Area 51 where there was a movie stage set up to record the fake landing. Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin then acted out the lunar landing and NASA transmitted out to the millions of viewers. Technology was available at the time to create a movie set that looked like the moon and film quality believable footage.One woman claimed to see a Coca Cola bottle roll across the bottom of her screen while watching the live broadcast of the moon landing proving that it was filmed at Area 51. Other than pure embarrassment being avoided the landing had to be staged in order to meet Kennedy's 1961 goal of landing a man on the moon before 1970.Coincidentally they walked on the moon in 1969 one year before the deadline Kennedy had set. The moon landing would also be a great distraction from the unpopular vietnam war and keep the American public`s focus on something more positive. Another reason for the faked moon landing was to beat the Soviet`s in the space race. The space
A lot of people believe that we are not too dependent on technology. I spoke to my brother; he stated we just utilize it like we would automobiles or anything else like that. There is no denying the benefits of technology, however, I believe we should not get ahead of ourselves.
Over the past 48 years, there has been quite a bit of controversy and speculation about the Apollo 11 moon landing. This supposedly was the first time the United States successfully sent two people, mission commander Neil Armstrong, and his pilot Buzz Aldrin, to the moon. The two men spent
We have came up a lot with all of the new technology that we have created through out the years. There is a lot of technology that is very good and it is helping us out on a lot of things and why? because when you know how to use technology appropriately it can help us out so much and can even keep us safe from all the dangers like car accidents. Technology can be fun as well I'm not going to lie we can use technology with our family all the time for example, watching a family movie or playing video games. We can have fun with our technology but the thing is that we have a little to much fun with it and get carried away and start using it all of the time. Ther are people that spent time on their phone until 3:00am and it just takes away from our sleep. But other than that technology is helping us out in discoverying new thing in not just Earth but also other plants. We can discover a lot of things with all the new technology we
Science and technology offer a great deal to us, and it would be difficult to imagine any life, which would not be connected to science and technology in any way. Even the cars we drive are direct outcomes of science and technology. We depend on many things to go about our daily lives, and if it weren't for science and technology, we would be lost. Sometimes if you look at people around you who are not as interested or knowledgeable about technology, you can't help to wonder how they do the many things I use technology for.
