    Physics Of Weighlessness

    1005 words, 5 pages

    Weightlessness occurs when there is no force of support on your body. Free fall is when your body is effectively accelerating downward at the acceleration of gravity; here you are not being supported. The sensation you get from apparent weight (mg- mass times gravity) comes from the support that you feel from the floor or from your seat. Some examples of the sensation of apparent weight occur on a roller-coaster or in an airplane due to the fact that they are accelerating either upward or downward; like going over the very top in a rollercoaster. Weightlessness happens

    Can Humans Live Elsewhere

    1007 words, 5 pages

    Planet Earth is slowly being depleted of its natural resources, Earth is running out of oil, minerals, and the forests are also losing the trees that used to be so plentiful. The resources on planet Earth will eventually be depleted completely, resulting in many scientists and scholars looking for other livable planets, or planets with resources that could possibly be used on planet Earth. Nasa has been sending space rovers to Mars to explore the resources that are located on Mars. The Nasa program spent billions of dollars to have the space rover, named Curiosity, go t

    The Geology Of Mars

    1252 words, 6 pages

    The geology of Mars is so immense and intricate. It would take an abundance of time to even come close to describing Mars precisely. It seems odd to me that Mars is so similar to Earth and yet we know so little about it. The only information available to us is due to visits to the planet via space ship and satellites. Also images that we are able to see from the Earth. The geology is still being studied and it could take us centuries to totally comprehend and appreciate it. We do know that Mars was named after the ancient Roman God of War. This is due to the fact that t

    ABSTRACT The Global Positioning System (GPS) is a constellation of 27 Earth-orbiting satellites that can be used to locate positions anywhere on the earth. The first GPS satellite was launched in 1978. The current system is composed of second generation GPS satellites, called Block II which was launched in 1989.There are 24 GPS satellites in orbit at this moment. The 24 satellites cost an estimated $12 billion to build and launch. Each satellite weighs about 1,735 lb (787 kg). The satellites are in orbit about 12,500 mi (20,000 km) above the Earth.

    NASA: Our Secret Gift For years NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) has been the unfair target of many citizens and politicians. To the general public NASA is seen as a waste and squandering of taxpayer's money. Many believe that NASA is long past its glory years of the Moon landing and that it is time to cut back, or completely eliminate federal funding for NASA. While on the surface it may seem that NASA really adds nothing to the general public, NASA's gifts are incalculable and they can be seen everywhere in our day to day lives.

    There are few scientists that have been renowned for causing great change in the United States, and Dr. Wernher von Braun was one of those. In addition, he was arguably one of most important scientists of the twentieth century. There is much that has come from the actions of this one man. The U.S. military was able to attain some of the world’s best rockets, and gained a critical edge in the Space Race between the United States and the Soviet Union. Von Braun was also a strong advocate for space programs and inspired many individuals through determination and perseverance to shoot for their dr
