    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...

  • Nasa And Space Exploration
    1,177 words
    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 ...
  • Intimate Distance In American Culture
    677 words
    Influence of Proxemics Specifically, according to Edward T. Hall, who has pioneered the study of spatial communication. Proxemics refers to the use of space in communication: 'the study of how man unconsciously structures micro space-the distance between men in conduct of daily transaction, the organization of space in his houses and buildings, and ultimately the layout of his towns. ' According to Hall, the way space is used in interaction is very much a cultural matter. In different cultures v...
  • Great Tool For Astronauts In Outer Space

    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...

  • Similar To Magnetic Fields In Space
    429 words
    I feel the future of transportation lies in space travel. People can go any where in the world and can do anything but travel in space. This is do to the incredible cost of space travel. The use of massive amounts of fuel for departing and re-entering the atmosphere contributes a high percentage of the cost. If there was only a way to cut down on these costs, space travel would become a more realistic form of travel. Physics has shown how to make many dreams, including cheaper space travel, beco...
