Apollo 13 Thesis
In the movie Apollo 13, Ron Howard experienced many challenges trying to recreate authenticity in
the Apollo 13 space mission's story, while still adding his own creative spin to the movie. In April
1970, National Aeronautic Space Agency (NASA) launched a spacecraft with three astronauts on
board this flight. During this mission, Apollo 13 experienced multiple issues, which caused the
mission to end earlier than expected. After 20 years had passed, Jim Lovell, one of the Apollo 13,
and Jeffrey Kluger wrote Lost Moon: The Perilous Voyage of Apollo 13, which chronicled this event
in NASA's lunar space history. Soon after its release, this book caught the eye of famous actor and
soon to be famous director Ron Howard, which caused him to adapt ... Show more content on

As editors of the movie, Mike Hill and Daniel Hanley were persistently tested in finding ways to
remain as true as possible to the historical event. One way that they did this was through keeping
some of the scenes consistent to the real timing of the events. In one scene, NASA's command
center in Houston, TX lost communication with the spacecraft for some time. As a crucial issue
within this account, Hill and Hanley wanted to keep this same timing in the movie, so they "wanted
to try to keep the running time in the film pretty close to the time on the clock and not have radio
silence lasting for nine minutes or something" (Apollo 13). Since long periods of silence is not
always the best way to keep an audience's attention, the editors had to find ways to keep the
audience engaged while still staying true to the real event, "The whole sequence benefits from some
great camera movement and crane shots which, combined with James Horner's score and sound
design by Steve Flick and Chic Ciccolini, helped immensely to build the tension" (Apollo 13). By
using a certain sequences, and also strong music, the editors were able to make this scene one of the
most memorable images in the

Pros And Cons Of Lost Cosmonauts
Zach Scriven
Mr. Belmont
College Composition 2
24 January, 2017
Exemplification
Rumors of Lost Cosmonauts When the USSR successfully launched the satellite Sputnik in 1957
they began the Space Race between them and the United States. The next step in the space race was
to send a human into orbit which the USSR also succeeded at by launching Yuri Gagarin into space.
However, there is evidence that Gagarin was not the first person to enter space, but only the first
person to survive being in space. While it is only speculation, there are multiple suspicious events
that suggest a Soviet cover–up of Cosmonauts lost in space or killed after reentry. These include
audio recordings from Italy, statements by former Red Army personnel, the Ilyushin ... Show more

The beginning of the recording begins normally with data readings and directions from mission
control. Later, towards the end the female cosmonaut states "Isn't this dangerous? Talk to me! Our
transmission begins now. I feel hot. I can see a flame. Am I going to crash? Yes. I feel hot, I will re–
enter..." After finishing her sentence the audio becomes filled with static and cuts off. The day after
it was recorded the Soviet government announced an unmanned satellite had crash landed in Siberia,
which may have been an attempt to cover–up a cosmonaut death. In addition, one of the unknown
dead cosmonauts revealed in the Czech information leaks was a woman, who may be the voice in
the recording

Apollo 13 Thesis
Ronald Reagan Ethos
President Reagan in his grief driven, yet inspiring speech "Explosion of the Space Shuttle
Challenger Address to the Nation," he expresses the nation's collective anguish in the wake of the
accident. Reagan's purpose is to praise the lost astronauts for their service and assure to NASA and
the rest of America that, even if these deaths happened, they should continue working towards space
explorations for future generations. He adopts a somber yet reflective tone in order to evoke a sense
of a silver lining in the minds of the American families across the nation. To do so, Ronald Reagan
utilizes the three rhetorical appeals: ethos, pathos, and logos.
At the start of his speech, Reagan chooses to apologize for the postponement of the annual State ...
Show more content on Helpwriting.net ...
He first commemorates the pioneers of space for their service, noting their courage and
painstakingly stating each of their names slowly and reverently. He is giving life to the astronauts,
working to show the audience that these are not just two words on a procter, but courageous
trailblazers on a mission to pursue their dreams of space exploration for America. Reagan is trying
to establish their emotions to bridge this gap from "random stranger" to "fallen hero" and draw
much needed respect for them in the wake of this tragedy, and solace for their loved ones. Reagan
even addresses the schoolchildren watching their teacher die upon launch and states that "sometimes
painful things like this happen" (6). Reagan knows that the children are going to be the future
astronauts and shuttle engineers, so he is essentially trying to reassure them that, though this is what
can happen to pioneers, this is the only way progress can be made. If he doesn't do this, people start
to question the necessity for continuing in this race for space and ultimately doubt the need to fund
NASA. Reagan chooses to address these concerns

Reagan's purpose is to praise the lost astronauts for their service and assure to NASA and the rest of America that, even if these deaths happened, they should continue working towards space explorations for future generations. He adopts a somber yet reflective tone in order to evoke a sense of a silver lining in the minds of the American families across the nation. To do so, Ronald Reagan utilizes the three rhetorical appeals: ethos, pathos, and logos. At the start of his speech, Reagan chooses to apologize for the postponement of the annual State ...

He is giving life to the astronauts, working to show the audience that these are not just two words on a procter, but courageous trailblazers on a mission to pursue their dreams of space exploration for America. Reagan is trying to establish their emotions to bridge this gap from "random stranger" to "fallen hero" and draw much needed respect for them in the wake of this tragedy, and solace for their loved ones. Reagan even addresses the schoolchildren watching their teacher die upon launch and states that "sometimes painful things like this happen" (6). Reagan knows that the children are going to be the future astronauts and shuttle engineers, so he is essentially trying to reassure them that, though this is what can happen to pioneers, this is the only way progress can be made. If he doesn't do this, people start to question the necessity for continuing in this race for space and ultimately doubt the need to fund NASA. Reagan chooses to address these concerns ...

In other words, he makes sure that everyone knows that we will not forget the men and women who lost their lives and that they will remain in our memory and hearts forever. He addresses the school children as well so that they have a better understanding of what happened and how hard it was to view such a tragedy. As a result, he wants for the children to understand that things do happen and he does not want them to give up on their future with what they have seen no matter how bad the devastation. "The future doesn 't belong to the fainthearted; it belongs to the brave." He does not want them to be timid, he wants them to continue on the journey forward. Further, that part of the speech that addressed the schoolchildren was meant to make them less afraid of the events that they saw. In other words, he wanted to try to explain things to them that would be at a level that they would understand and make them feel better about what they seen. The great respect and ambition that the president has for the program is at the upmost respect. This brought him great credibility by addressing NASA for what they have accomplished and moving forward with the space program. "We don 't hide our space program.

  • 9. Peter Unger I Do Not Exist Peter Unger, in his essay I do not Exist, presented the position of self non–existence and complete non–existence,e.g, nothing exists. This move is based on the idea that things are made of atoms, specifically that things are composed of finite numbers of atoms, and therefore the removal of even one atom would, therefore, change the existential status of the thing in question; however, it must be said his argument does not necessarily rely on atoms specifically it is merely convenient that science has allowed an easy explanation of the theory. All of these moves are intrinsically solid points of contention to the non–existence of things, he even goes so far as to call metaphysical attempts of explanation miracles, because it involves changing the structure of the logic used to conclude this non–existence. I, however, am going to take a reductionist and common sense approach and use only the logic given by Peter Unger to show that his proofs do not necessarily invalidate his own existence nor do his proofs invalidate the existence of an object whose existence is being questioned. To do this I must rely on no metaphysical miracles to save my explanations, but instead I must show the nature of losing small amounts of atoms is irrelevant to my existence. ...

According to source 2, pennies are "too heavy and not cost–effective to ship." (Source 2 – Mancuso). Ultimately, they just have no value. Most people, according to source 3, feel as if pennies aren't worth carrying around or using, this would save time since we wouldn't have to count them (Source 3 – Waterhouse). So what if they cost a little more than they're worth? We could solve this by making the pennies out of steel, making the penny cheaper to produce (Source 2 – Mancuso). And they waste space, supposedly? Well, they're worth so little, you would probably be tempted to give them away, to a charity, or other beneficial things, which would free your space a little ( Source 3 – Waterhouse). Pennies also happen to waste our time, yes, but people still want to use their precious pennies, so let them. There's no reason to ban the penny, as all issues can easily be solved. So, are pennies really worth the ban? I believe so, as there's enough reasons, such as the penny being too costly, a waste of space, and even a waste of time. So I believe it's time for a change.

A president has the power to set a legislative agenda, to veto a law, and to make crucial foreign policy decisions.

President Reagan comforted the nation, memorialized the seven casualties, and culminated hope for the future of space exploration all in a four–and–a–half–minute national address.

They were forced to shut down the heaters when they lost lots of electrical and fuel power. This caused great discomfort for the astronauts and it could have impacted some of the equipment on board. The explosion also caused a guidance issue due to the thrust coming from the explosion, the loss of some systems dealing with guidance, and the loss of aerodynamics. Aerodynamics were lost by losing an entire panel and potentially having parts of the spacecraft protruding into space.

  • 39. Apollo 13 : Newton's Laws Of Motion Apollo 13 is a movie based on the events of the Apollo 13 lunar mission. It is surrounding the events that take place after the space craft is launched into space and undergoes significant internal damage putting the lives of the three astronauts on board in jeopardy. (IMDb) Firstly, I want to explain what I first observed in the movie, Newton's first law of motion and law of universal gravitation. Both laws are two prevalent laws that are shown throughout Apollo 13. Newton's first law of motion states that "an object remains at rest, or in uniform motion in a straight line, unless it is compelled to change by an extremely imposed force." (Griffith and Brosing) Newton's law of universal gravitational states that "the gravitational force between two objects is proportional to the mass of each as inversely proportional to the square of the distance between the centers of the masses." (Griffith and Brosing, Newton's Third Law) The Apollo 13 and the astronauts were consistently in a state of uniformity until it was acted on by an external force, that external force being gravity. Newton's first law is demonstrated in several ways throughout the movie, the most obvious example is when the astronauts were in zero gravity meaning "the state or condition of weightlessness," (Dictionary.com) and they started to move freely around the space craft. Another example of this law is when the space craft circles around the moon and resumes its path back to Earth, since the moon has a ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...

The book talks about how people will scream in anger because of all the stress. The crew can't say there in mortal danger because the radio waves are publicly monitored, so their family can hear them.

Functional Fixed Guiding Appliance : A Case Report Functional Fixed Guiding Appliance – A case report Abstract Preservation of deciduous dentition till its normal time of exfoliation plays a significant role in preventive and interceptive dentistry. The premature loss of second primary molar before the eruption of permanent first molar can create a significant arch space/tooth size discrepancy. The function of the space maintainer is to preserve the arch length and allows the permanent teeth to erupt uunhindered into proper alignment and occlusion because just "watching" often results in the creation of a more difficult arch length problem. Distal shoe space maintainer is a valuable part of the Paediatric Dentist's armamentarium in those cases where the second primary molar is prematurely lost and it helps to guide the first permanent molar into place.sometimes as per needs of the patients, certain modifications are required in the conventional appliance design.

There are many characters of Satan in literature, and over the creation of each Satan, he as a character has evolved. It is thought by John Carey that Milton observed the former characters of Satan and used them as inspiration to influence his new character as Satan. Milton created Satan as the author of evil and created him by himself. Satan is the main character throughout "Paradise Lost" that starts the story and puts events into motion. As Milton created his Satan he focused on strong characteristics of epic heroes and rhetoric. In "Paradise Lost", Milton uses select qualities of an epic hero to be displayed as an epic hero himself. To become an epic hero the character must travel over vast settings to meet the criteria to be an epic hero. Milton created the story in a religious sense which can be seen in the setting too. The setting consists of Earth, Hell, Heaven, and the space between them. Heaven and Hell are complete polar opposites which is in relation to the distance between them. The space between Heaven and Hell is empty space and Earth. Earth represents the middle ground between perfect and imperfect.

Today we use three temperature scales. The first of these scales was Fahrenheit scale. It was developed in 1714 by German scientist Daniel Gabriel Fahrenheit. He developed first mercury thermometer after being inspired by alcohol thermometer invented by Danish scientist Olaus Roemer. Fahrenheit made it more precise by multiplying his scale by four. He establish zero by mixing equal amount of water, ice and salt. Then he mixed just equal amount of ice and salt, and scales gave him next point 32. The last point he establish by using body temperature which was approximately 96. After his death his scale was adjusted to 32 as melting temperature of plain water, normal body temperature at 98.6 and boiling point of plain water at 212. Fahrenheit temperature scale was widely replaced by Celsius scale, except USA and some Caribbean countries. Celsius scale was developed in 1742 by Swedish astronomer Andres Celsius. When he was developing his scale, he marked 0 as boiling point and 100 as freezing point. This scale was known as centigrade. After his death in 1948 The Conference General des Poids et Measures renamed this scale to Celsius and establish the scale as we know it today.

The shuttle itself was on its 28th mission and was just one of the five space shuttles that was used amongst NASA. But on this particular day, it wasn't like the rest because astronauts are supposed to return home safely; that's not what happened on this day. There were seven astronauts that were inside the shuttle. Their names were Rick Husband, David Brown, Michael Anderson, Laurel Clark, William McCool, Kalpana Chawla, and Ilan Ramon. They had all died in an explosion within the shuttle itself. NASA was trying to figure out how this could've happened. They ran through many possibilities of what could've gone wrong and they came to the conclusion that the reason the shuttle had exploded when coming through the atmosphere was because a chunk of foam hilt a wing of the craft. This was suspected to be the reason when tape was analyzed of the takeoff before Columbia went into space. NASA wanted to know if it was the real reason but didn't want anyone else to know of the issues besides them. The Department of Defense had asked permission from the people working for NASA to use orbital spy cameras to analyze the problem.

He writes about what he experiences such as the feeling of being the first passengers to Mars, seeing the technologies that recycle water, eating fresh produce in space, and the final landing on Mars a year later and watching the rovers that landed before him moving about. Many problems of space travel stem from the fact that supplies are limited in space. A trip to Mars with current technologies would take eight months to travel to Mars and that is just robotic missions (NASA 2012a). This presents an obvious problem that a space flight can only carry a limited amount of food, water, and air. Any system also needs to be powered by electricity. Current food technology consists of prepackaged food. There are a couple problems that space food has to be able to solve. One problem is that space food has to not just float around and get into vents, crevices, and machinery. This is a hazard that scientists have to keep in mind when making food. Also, it should be long lasting enough to last in space until a resupply. The food the astronauts eat in the International Space Station right now are all packaged food sent up from earth.
