Modern society can rapidly develop as a result of continual advancement of science and technology. Space exploration is the most remarkable event in all science and technology because it has ever been a dream to people. In order to let people understand more things about space exploration, I will introduce the history, development, achievement, benefits, problems and future about it.
People have always wanted to know more about the planets and stars outside Earth in all ages. Ancient astronomers observed the objects planets and named them after Roman deities. During the European Renaissance, fundamental physical laws governing planetary motion were discovered, and the orbits of the...VIEW DOCUMENT
Picture Earth with no other living creatures but bugs, do you really want Earth to be inhabited by just bugs and bugs alone? But wait, you'd ask yourself, where did all the humans go?
The survival of our civilization and humanity depends on the possibility of accumulating enough knowledge, technical resources and the necessary motivation to pursue our further expansion outside the confines of Earth. Science technology and space exploration are convinced that the alternative to expansion would be facing extinction.VIEW DOCUMENT
Space exploration has been booming in the past year. In years to come, it will dramatically increase. So far this year, there have been many missions. A probe, Stardust, obtained comet dust while passing Comet Wild. Also, a rover successfully landed on Mars. President Bush has also announced that in the next 30 years, humans will be sent to further explore the moon, Mars and some asteroids. Many more plans have been made. Another rover, Opportunity, will land on Mars. New robots will be launched in the next couple of years, and a mission to Mars will occur around 2015. In May, a probe will be sent to Mercury. NASA is sending a spacecraft to fly around Venus and Mercury, hopefully creating...VIEW DOCUMENT
What was God's purpose in creating the world, creating us, and creating the space that the world exists in? There is no doubt that God created everything we see around us, and even the things we cannot see, he created them all. Colossians 1:16 says, "For everything, absolutely everything, above and below, visible and invisible...everything got started in him and finds its purpose in him." God also created human beings in his image, and sent us out into all the world making disciples of all nations. But God also has another purpose for humans, as can be seen in Revelation 4:11b which says, "You created everything, and it is for your pleasure that they exist and were created!" God takes...VIEW DOCUMENT
The limitless region of outer space lies before us, awaiting discovery and exploration, but there is concern about the cost of space exploration. Although it does cost a lot of money, the long-term advantages of space exploration and colonization can be quite effective and helpful. If we continue to use fossil fuels and minerals at the rate we're going we won't have much left for the future. Also, the population of the Earth is growing and overpopulating quickly. With further space exploration we may be able to find a way toVIEW DOCUMENT
Space exploration has been increasing greatly in the last 50 years. It has allowed us to understand the greatness of the universe and the endless possibilities it offers us. Our planet, Earth, is inhabited by approximately 6 billion humans. This is well over our natural carrying capacity (the amount of resources there are to sustain our population) but with techniques such as farming, we have manipulated our resources to provide us with enough food, but alternate solutions are needed. The Cold War was when the space exploration significantly advanced, with the political competition between U.S.A and the U.S.S.R., where the two nations invested highly on technologies to see who could win...VIEW DOCUMENT
When John F. Kennedy gave his now famous speech regarding going to the Moon, he said, "We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will ... measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one ... we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win." (3). As a result of this speech, NASA was assigned its first long-term, manned mission. When NASA succeeded in this goal by landing on the moon in 1969, it was at its height in popularity. The entire nation was in awe of the accomplishment. However, ever since that time, NASA has continued to lose significance in the...VIEW DOCUMENT
Have you ever sat in bed at night, staring up at the thousands and thousands of stars up in the dark, black sky? Space exploration, is the exploration of space, meaning it is the study of planets, stars, and exploring new things in space. Thinking back into the ancient days, people used to dream and imagine that they could explore their universe and see what is beyond the small blue planet earth. They're dream was accomplished in the 20th century, and since the ancient times, space exploration has definitely changed for the better. Now, people can practically live up in space, for months, even years at a time.
Lets take a glimpse of space exploration over the past 1,000 years. Space...VIEW DOCUMENT
Neil Armstrong once said, "That's one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind," after he became the first man to reach the moon. He certainly thought space exploration was a great idea ... and why isn't it? Space exploration is absolutely necessary to humans. Without space exploration, this world would not be near as advanced as it is today. Without space exploration, where could humans go if a nuclear war arises? Without space exploration, our world would be unsafe.

Humans have been fascinated with mars for thousands of years, from the ancient Greeks and Romans to current NASA scientists. Now the American space program wants to travel to Mars which would cost up to thirty billion dollars for a human mission to Mars. On January 4th, 2004 a rover named Spirit landed on Mars, from then many critics wondered if we should spend money on Mars? Mars exploration is a good idea for America. But such critics think the American economy doesn't have the money to spend for...VIEW DOCUMENT

United States Space Program NASA the United States space program started back in 1958 on July 29. NASA stands for
National Aeronautics and Space Administration. There have been many explorations in space. Space
exploration costs a lot of money. NASA has found out a lot of infomation about the planets, moon, stars,
asteroids, and outer space. There are many different opinions whether space exploration is necessary.
Some say it cost too much while others say that the cost does not matter and we need to explore in space.

SPACE EXPLORATION: FROM THE PAST TO THE FUTURE Ever since the beginning of time, mankind has been fascinated with wonders of space. Before the mid-1900s, all mankind could do was gaze at the stars from Earth and wonder what it would be like to go into space. Man would look through telescopes and make theories on how the universe worked. During the mid-1900s, mankind finally was able to send a man into space and explore the wonders of space first hand. So why do humans explore space? Well, it is our fascination with the unknown. At first, all mankind did was look up and wonder how things became what they are now. We started to think that all celestial bodies revolved around...VIEW DOCUMENT
Robotics is the science of designing and constructing robots. Robots are mechanical devices that perform complex tasks autonomously or under partial human supervision. They commonly substitute humans in performing tasks of hazardous, accurate, or redundant nature.
In the last couple of decades, the rapid advancements in technologies such as electronics and software led to the vast expansion of the robotics domain. Nowadays applied robotics is divided into three main categories. The most common robots are industrial robots used in various manufacturing lines across the globe. Deep sea and space...VIEW DOCUMENT
