Since the beginning of time there have always been those that have opposed exploration of uncharted lands. This statement holds truth also for the NASA program since the beginning when President John F. Kennedy's vision was to land a man on the moon by the end of the decade.' Instead of all the opposition of NASA and questions such as, "Why should we go to space?" I believe people should ask themselves, "Why shouldn't we go to space?" Christopher Columbus didn't have to sail over the Atlantic Ocean and discover America, he could have stayed in Europe but then we may not be living in the United States of America. Christopher Columbus and many others human didn't stop but continued to explore because they are humans. We as humans have an instinctive nature to explore and discover. This is seen especially in children. When toddlers see something such as a shiny object, they investigate it by picking it up, feeling it and maybe tasting it. As we grow, it is only necessary that we as humans continue their search to discover and explore. If the excitement and thrill of exploration isn't enough for you, there are also many benefits that NASA and space exploration contribute. The first benefit and almost the most obvious is technology. Getting into space isn't easy and takes time, money, and research. In order for the missions to be successes much technology is used, which a lot of the time also effects the rest of society. One simple example came from the question, "How do you get rid of excess heat when you're standing under an open sky with literally nothing between you and the blazing fury of the Sun?" NASA scientists came up with the liquid cool garment which kept the astronauts cool and comfortable from head from to toe. This cooling system was then eventually adopted by firefighters when dealing with dangerous high temperature materials, race care drivers, and soldiers in the desert. Another simple device used in about every home is the smoke detector. The smoke
Responding to Groupthink and Faulty Reasoning at NASA
The group think concept is a summary of why many times groups make poor decisions. Yes its true what they say, that the more 1 mind is better than 2 and 3 is better than two, because they can provide different opinion’s and vantage points then if it is just one or two people discussing something. Many times in a group situation lower level employees won’t consult management because they know if they do, the decision will get bogged down in….
Persuasive Essay-NASA Space Exploration
Christopher Columbus theorised that the earth was flat. We later found out that the earth was actually spherical, this was due to significant advancement of astronomy. Such important discoveries, wouldn’t be possible without, NASA, space exploration, advances in technology, scientific findings and a more broadened knowledge of the universe. The illusive idea of travelling beyond our clouds has been around before the first moon landing took place. We know….
Geology CP, Period 1
08 January 2013
NASA spends about nine point nine twenty eight billion dollars per year. I agree that spending that much amount of money is worth it and at the same time it is not worth it because of the following.
I agree that it is worth the expense because with mars exploration we can discover new
things in space. It may be possible to even discover other living creatures that yet they are undiscovered. It is great to send people to space….
NASA who put a man on the moon, and inspired millions and millions of people, devastated our confidence and broke our hearts in an instant on January 28th, 1986. The magnificent ship exploded and dropped into the ocean. The disaster claimed all lives onboard. In the week that followed sorrow turned into rage, as the exact causes of the disaster became known. The two rubber O-rings, which had been designed to separate the sections of the rocket booster, had faileddue to cold temperature. NASA and….
Since NASA was established it has achieved many scientific and technological goals in space. Without NASA, our lives would be a lot different. NASA has sponsored many space travels that have provided information about our solar system and universe. NASA has launched many satellites that have been very useful in everything from forecasting the weather to communicating with aircraft during….
Imagine this for a second. A young teary-eyed boy sits in the waiting room of the hospital as the doctor informs him about his father’s failing heart. As awful and heartbreaking as this situation sounds, that boy’s father is able to stay alive via a ventricular assist device that will continue to pump blood through his veins until he can receive a necessary heart transplant. This device is ever-present in the field of medicine and is responsible for saving countless lives. Well….
Multi-Purpose Crew Vehicle
In 2011, NASA unveiled a new deep-space vehicle called the Multi-Purpose Crew Vehicle (MPCV). NASA officials plan for the Vehicle is for it to send astronauts on voyages to an asteroid and then eventually onto Mars. The idea for this vehicle came from an earlier idea for another spaceship. The designs that the Multi-Purpose Crew Vehicle are based on was originally designed for was the Orion spaceship but unfortunately it was part of NASA Constellation program which has now….
been possible without the funding and development of NASA. NASA, which stands for National Aeronautics and Space Administration, was started in 1958. Ever since then NASA has always provided the American people with many technological advancements throughout….
of the problems that have been helped with the research done through space travel
Unsafe food- Faced with the problem of how and what to feed an astronaut in a sealed capsule under weightless conditions while planning for human space flight, NASA enlisted the aid of The Pillsbury Company to address two principal concerns: eliminating crumbs of food that might contaminate the spacecraft’s atmosphere and sensitive instruments, and assuring absolute freedom from potentially catastrophic disease-producing….
