    Deep Space Probes 1 Have you ever considered life on other planets, or maybe galaxies that we have never heard of? Thanks to space probes these dreams may become a reality sooner than u think. In the past years there have been many space probes launched and even more discoveries made by them. These probes are helping people to better understand our solar system and everything it. They are also helping to make many new discoveries. What exactly is a space probe? A space probe is an unmanned spac...

    When the crew of Apollo 11 splashed down in the Pacific Ocean on July 24, 1969, Americans hailed the successful completion of the most audacious and complex technological undertaking of the 20 th century: landing humans on the moon and returning them safely to earth. Just over eight years before, when President John F. Kennedy proposed the manned lunar landing as the focus of the United States's pace program, only one American - Lt. Comdr. Alan B. Shepard, Jr. - had been into space, on a suborb...

    Space Law deals primarily with activities in Outer Space. There are also many activities conducted on Earth which are concerned with space activities - the most obvious example is the launching of spacecraft. There have been many discussions as to whether space law should concern every activity related to Outer Space, or whether it would have to be limited to Outer Space. The delimitation of space law bed on the events taking place in space is called the spatial approach. Instead of limiting spa...

    Space Exploration Space Exploration is the quest to use space travel to discover the nature of the universe beyond earth. Today's Space Exploration started in 1957 with the launch of the first artificial satellite, but since ancient times people have dreamed of leaving their home planet and exploring other worlds. Every era through out history has had a belief as to what the "heavens" are made form. The Greeks believed that the stars and space were made of a material called "Qui tenses", and oth...

    CanadarmAlthough Canada has been involved with the space race since the beginning, nothing has made our national pride glow like watching the space shuttles and seeing the big letters CANADA written across the Canadarm. The Canadarm was fist launched into space on November 13, 1981 as part of Columbia. During that mission, the Canadarm successfully flexed its muscles and secured its position in the future of space travel. It was developed by Spar Aerospace with the National Research Council and ...

    (2) Space exploration is our human response to curiosity about the earth, the moon, the planets, the sun and other stars, and the galaxies. Manned and unmanned space vehicles venture far beyond the boundaries of the earth to collect valuable information about the universe. Human beings have visited the moon and have lived in space stations for long periods. Space exploration helps us see the earth in its true relation with the rest of the universe. Such exploration could reveal how the sun, the...

    To What Extent Does Our Understanding Of Space Depend On The Way We Think Of Time 'Space and time are basic categories of human existence' (Harvey, 1989: 201). They are such familiar concepts to human beings that there is a temptation to dismiss them as unimportant. Time is used everyday - ordered into minutes, hours, days, even millenia - while space is treated as a fact of nature, '... an objective attribute of things which can be measured and thus pinned down' (Harvey, 1989: 203). However, th...

    Communism spread dramatically during the Cold War. Russia successfully introduced communism to smaller, unstable countries. Cuba joined forces with Russia in the effort to advance communism around the world. Technology also advanced at breakneck speeds. The US and Russia raced to claim the title First Country to Enter Space. Russia won that race on April 12, 1961 when Yuri Gagarin entered space and orbited Earth. The US now needed a goal that would "better" the Russian success, and President Ke...

    Canadarm 2 By: Daniel ZielinskiCanadarm 2 The Canadarm 2 is a very important contribution from Canada, to the international Space station. Its complex design allows it to move through out the international space station and supply the station with useful tasks. The Canadarm was launched form earth on the shuttle flight #104 witch is also known as Endeavour. On April 2001 the Endeavour was caring much more then just the Canadarm, it was caring the crew who would install the new Canadarm to the in...

    Space Storms I. Introduction For years, citizens in the United States have had access to televised weather as well as radar images of storm activity from around the world. Weather prediction has become increasingly accurate with the advancement of technology and should continue to get better. For the majority of people following the weather has become a routine part of their lives. As a society we seem to be well educated about the weather occurring on our own planet but we know little of the we...

    Kant: Explain and asses what you think to be the best argument Kant gives as his "Metaphysical Exposition of Space" (B 37-40) that space cannot be either and actual entity (Newtonian concept) or any independent relation among real things (Leibnizian concept be on). In other words, is he successful in arguing that space must be (at least) a form of intuition? Do any of his arguments further show that space must be ONLY a form of intuition and not ALSO something Newtonian or Leibnizian? In his Met...

    Docking With Mir Last year something amazing took place, but it wasn't in a laboratory. Itwasn't under the ocean, and it wasn't on the land. It was in space. The docking of the United States's Space Shuttle Atlantis and the Russian Space Station Mir was an important step towards international cooperation in space. This is not the first time the U. S. has been in contact with Russia in space matters. In 1965, an American Apollo capsule and a Russian Soyuz module were locked in orbital tango 245 ...

    Is A Space Station Finally "the next logical Step" If America plans to continue its space exploration program, the question that must be asked next is: "Where do we go from here" America has made major strides in space exploration in this century. We have built enormous rockets that can carry three men and their supplies to the moon and back. We have mastered the physics that are involved in shooting a rocket out of our atmosphere and bringing the return capsule back again. The next step in the ...
  • Kant Space And Time

    Isaac Newton had a new approach to the existence of space and time that contradicted that of great philosophers such as Leibniz and Descartes. Newton felt that space and time are infinite and independent of the body and mind, that the bodies and minds of the world existed in space and time and even without the presence of physical bodies there still would be space and time. He stated there "are positions in space and time which are independent of the material entities" that existed in them and t...

    The Future of NASA One hundred years from now, NASA's space program will not be so far advanced that people will be able to beam around the Universe or travel through time. However, unless something goes terribly wrong with the world, it is expected to advance tremendously. New, high-tech designs for rockets will make them more environmentally safe. Rockets will also be recycled and reused. Systems retrieving parts of rockets that are today, left behind in space, will be created. Astronauts will...

    Laser beams, intergalactic thrusters and space tourism, sound like a sci-fi movie? Well as weird as it may be, the above proposals and other many similar ideas that once seemed only of imagination may soon be possible. Ever since the first days of man, the human race has been baffled by the heavens above always wondering what is out there and if the moon really is made of "Swiss cheese"? Over time the human race has developed machines and other devices to help itself and to explore our boundarie...

    I firmly believe that space exploration is not a waste of time and money. Firstly, in the million-year long struggle for survival on the earth, man has never been able to gain a clear and in-depth knowledge of the space with this planet in it. It is yet to be known whether we are alone, living in a safe or a dangerous place. Only by probing outer space can man find a real sense of security AND A REAL SENSE OF BELONGING... Secondly, on this blue planet, man has been toiling endlessly and tireless...

In the instance of the Space Race, the United States fought a bloodless battle that they knew they could not afford to lose. Defeat meant utter annihilation by nuclear missiles, while victory meant a triumph over the dark communistic powers. So the United...
