    The Apollo Program’s Unknown Savior The space race was a long and complicated time in history in which many people became well known for their contributions to science and the space race. One of the most well-known is JFK, but his Vice President, Lyndon Baines Johnson, was as much of a force in making the American space program great if not a greater force than the President. Although the space race isn’t officially considered to have started until 1957, the race actually began at the end of World War two. After the Germans surrendered, the USSR and America rushed to capture Germany’s top rocket scientists to attempt to catch up with the German’s V-2’s. Both the U.S and the USSR captured German rocket scientists, but…

    Origins The Voyager program began in the 1965 with Gary Flandro’s discovery of a rare planetary alignment of Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune that would occur in 1977. This alignment occurs only once every 175 years. The Grand Tour as the program was called had launch windows between 1976 and 1980. The original idea of the Grand Tour was to send four probes to ultimately visit every planet in our outer solar system. In 1971 funding for the Grand Tour program was canceled in the 1973 NASA…

    such ongoing effort is the Voyager Program. Two space probes, Voyager 1 and Voyager 2, were launched in the late 1970s to collect data about our solar system. Voyager 2 was launched from the Kennedy Space Center on August 20, 1977. Voyager 1 was also launched from the Kennedy Space Center 15 days after Voyager 2 on September 5, 1977. The reason for the seemingly backwards numbering is that they weren’t labeled based on launch date but rather by which probe would first make it to the location of…

    In fact, the computer technology was not as advanced as it is today. Communication devices and systems were not as developed as they are today. Nevertheless, the device proves to be living beyond the technology of today. The device is in the interstellar space and is out to make history. Travelling at a speed of 38, 000 miles per hour, the device is set to be the first man-made feature to ever exit the currently known solar system and explore the far galaxies (Cowen, 2013). This success can be…

    Mercury, Venus, Earth, and Mars are known as the terrestrial planets. In comparison to the outer planets, they are small in size, made of denser materials, and lack a huge numbers of moons. Even though they share these common traits, they are still very different from each other. Mercury is the closest planet to the sun, yet its surface is either extremely hot or extremely cold due to the slow rotation of the planet on it's axis and the lack of atmosphere. It is also unique in that it's core is…

There are many theories that will be discussed in this paper, but it is possible that no one could ever really know for sure. However, Saturn is not the only planet with a ring system, there are a few others but nothing as extravagant as what Saturn has.…

    object like, the planet Saturn keeps this constant speed, it thus keeps a constant momentum, since the system is conserved. This conserved system of the planet Saturn would be referred to as angular momentum, since Saturn rotates about an axis. Saturn is also known for it’s massive thunderstorms, which have created angular momentum changes to suppress the planet to cyclones. Saturn’s changing of angular momentum, comes from uprising thunderstorms, beta-drifting and it does not necessarily always…
