  1. 1. By:Miguel Cardenas
  2. 2.  In the Film “The Day the Universe Changed: The Way We Are” They mention that In 1450 we found a new way of pairing that would help us navigate through earth. In 1844 the invention that gave us computers was more code. We as humans are curious. We came to be as we are today because we ask questions.
  3. 3.  Ludwig Josef Johann Wittgenstein Changed The world in many ways, He lived from 26 April 1889 – 29 April 1951.He was a gay Austrian philosopher who worked in logic, philosophy of mathematics, philosophy of mind, and philosophy of language. He inspired two of the century's principal philosophical movements, logical positivism and ordinary language philosophy.
  4. 4.  Cheyenne Mountain Changed the world as well it is a mountain located just outside the southwest side of Colorado Springs, Colorado, US, and is home to the Cheyenne Mountain Air Force Station. Elevation 9,565 ft (2,915 m).The Cheyenne Mountain Operations Center and the Cheyenne Mountain Directorate collect data from a worldwide system of satellites, radar, and other sensors and process that information in real time., NORAD continues to conduct day-to-day operations in Cheyenne Mountain. The Cheyenne Mountain complex traces its origins to 1956. General Earle E. Partridge, commander of the Continental Air Defense Command, proposed construction of a new underground combat operations center to replace the outgrown and vulnerable above-ground facility at Ent Air Force Base, Colorado.The launch of Sputnik I, the world's first artificial satellite, on October 4, 1957, demonstrated not only the accomplishments of the Soviet Union's space program, In response, the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) was established on May 12, 1958. The Operations Center itself lies along one side of a main tunnel bored almost a mile through the solid granite heart of the mountain. The tunnel is designed to route the worst of a blast's shock wave out the other end, past the two 25-ton blast doors that mark one wall. The center was designed to withstand up to a 30 megaton blast within 1-nautical-mile. The underground Combat Operations Center (COC) was originally intended to provide a 70% probability of continuing to function if a five-megaton nuclear weapon detonated three miles (5.6 km) away, but was ultimately built to withstand a multimegaton blast within 1.5 nautical miles. The main entrance to the complex is about one-third of a mile (540 m) from the North Portal via a tunnel which leads to a pair of 25-ton steel blast doors. Behind them is a steel building complex built within a 4.5 acres grid of excavated chambers and tunnels and surrounded by 2,000 feet (600 m) of granite. Fifteen buildings, freestanding without contact with the rock walls or roofs and joined by flexible vestibule connections, make up the inner complex. Twelve of these buildings are three stories tall; the others are one and two stories. The outer shells of the buildings are made of three-eighths-inch (9.5 mm) continuously welded low carbon steel plates which are supported by structural steel frames. Metal walls and tunnels serve to attenuate electromagnetic pulse (EMP). Sensors at the North and South Portal entrances will detect overpressure waves from a nuclear explosion, causing the valves to close and protect the complex. The buildings in the complex are mounted on 1,319 steel springs, each weighing about 1,000 pounds (450 kg). The springs allow the complex to move 12 inches (30 cm) in any one direction.To make the complex self-sufficient, adequate space in the complex is devoted to support functions. A dining facility, medical facility with dental office, pharmacy and a two-bed ward; two physical fitness centers with exercise equipment and sauna; a small base exchange and barber shop are all located within the complex. Electricity comes primarily from the city of Colorado Springs, with six 1,750 kilowatt diesel generators for backup. Water for the complex comes from an underground supply inside Cheyenne Mountain, deposited into four excavated reservoirs with a capacity of 1.5 million U.S. gallons (6,000 m³) of water. Incoming air may be filtered through a system of chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear filters to remove harmful pathogens and/or radioactive and chemical particles.The NORAD command center has been modernized several times over the years.
  5. 5.  In the Movie Journey of man it just describes how we as humans have came. It shows us how language has advanced. Where we are believed to have came from. How we are believed to have originated from a single African man. It explains the expedition Spencer lead in order to show this incredible discovery. It explains to us the routs and steps he took in order to find out how we are known to have came from one African man. In his trip he collected about 2,000 blood samples in order to match the DNA. It explains how life was for humans years ago.
  6. 6. ◦ Columbus Changed the world more than anyone in the world. He knew of one place that would make a person a fortune but it was in the other side of the world this place was a group of islands in Asia that had spices like pepper. One spice was only held in the one island and another in the world during the time. Spices were everything they were used for medicine, to cooking. This place was secret, but he was also attracted by more than spices. He was interested in the gold pavilion. He had discovered the paper, compass, silk and gun powder. But there was nowhere else where a European could trade. All trading routes had been dominated by other countries. If European wanted something they had to go to chiro. Where they had everything. Gold was the most expensive product. During Marcopolos time half of earth was unknown. The maps were very un-accurate Coumbos journey changed that. At the age of 25 Colombo set out to the west. He thought his journey would only take a few months. But he never came back. ◦ Colombo brought it to the old world. Other products that were traded in the Columbian trade were sheep, cattle, and pigs, goats, donkeys, and chicken. They were brought from the old world to new. Potatoes, corn, chilipepers, coaco, pineapples, tobacco, peanuts, many beans and the tomato. Colombo set out to search for gold and spices but instead he found crops. Crops that were worth more gold than the world could produce in value. He had created a new world joined by two.
