Aldrin was scared that neither the Apollo 11 mission commander Neil Armstrong, nor the public would understand the social and philosophical ramifications of landing on the moon. Shortly after the Lunar Module landed at Tranquility base, on the surface of the moon on July 20, 1969, Aldrin asked NASA officials and everyone else who mi

The Solar System
The Solar System Dealing with planets, galaxies, comets, meteors, and stars, astronomy is the science which studies the astral bodies. Astronomy also provides the basis for other physics-related sciences such as astrophysics and cosmology. The main staples of astronomy include: the solar system, nearby stars, asteroids, galaxies, and comets. The Solar System Newton\'s law of gravitation concluded that a force was present between the sun and each of the planets, which caused a strong attraction.

The Space Age The space age has brought about many human achievements. The space industry has been an important part of 20th century Florida because it has brought technology and jobs to Florida. Space exploration dates back to Jules Vernes\' book, From the Earth to the Moon, in which Florida is the launch site for a lunar exploration mission. The \'Space Race\' started on October 4, 1957 when the Soviet Union launched the first man made satellite, Sputnik Zemli. Its name, roughly translated,

Our Solar System at a Glance INTRODUCTION From our small world we have gazed upon the cosmic ocean for untold thousands of years. Ancient astronomers observed points of light that appeared to move among the stars. They called these objects planets, meaning wanderers, and named them after Roman deities -- Jupiter, king of the gods; Mars, the god of war; Mercury, messenger of the gods; Venus, the god of love and beauty, and Saturn, father of Jupiter and god of agriculture. The stargazers also obse

Computers NASA\'s impact on computing, its many uses of computing technology from 1958 on provide valuable examples of the growth in power, diversity, and effectiveness of the applications of computers. The late 1950s marked the beginning of the computer industry as an indispensable contributor to American science and business. NASA\'s extreme desire to make the most of what the industry could offer resulted in many interesting and innovative applications of the ever-improving technology of comp
