The dining area at the corner of the square is demarcated by a wall that separates the kitchen from it with a circulation path still linking to the kitchen. Opposite the wall that separates this space from the kitchen is a sliding glass door that opens up to the northwesterly facing balcony. Standing here, one is offered a magnificent panoramic view of the Melbourne city skyline

Space is the most hostile environment we will ever explore. Even a single five-hour spacewalk requires months of training, and a vast technical backup to keep it safe. The astronauts and cosmonauts who live in space are there for only a few weeks or months; if we want to travel into deep space it could take years. First we'll have to find out just how long the human body can survive in a weightless environment. In zero gravity, four pints of body fluid rush from the legs to the head where it stays for the duration of the mission. Astronauts often feel as if they have a permanent cold, and disorientation can become a major problem. In space there's no physical sensation to let you know when

All the advancements in technology that were being made were not perfect and still are immune to making mistakes. On January 28, 1986 America was shocked by the destruction of the space shuttle Challenger, and the death of its seven crew members. As is expected in a field of work that's exploratory and uncertain such as the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) space program, any tragedy that occurs often makes inside employees, government officials, and even the general public, wonder why it's necessary at all to continue when the consequences are so grave.On the morning of Feb. 1, 2003, space shuttle Columbia broke apart roughly 40 miles above the earth's

2001: A Space Odyssey
In Stanley Kubrick’s movie, 2001: A space Odyssey, the audience was awed by the stunning special effects and the relationship of man and his computer. In 1968, movie goers were shocked to see the cinematic quality that Kubrick displayed, however, the narrative captures the event of a computer overhauling a space ship and causing harm to innocent humans. One key sequence shows the power shift from, the computer to the human, using Kubrick’s camera work to provide evidence of the climatic event ensuing. From one age to another, Kubrick’s captivating advances in technology presents fear of modern day technology for when it becomes smarter than the

Headed by Burt Rutan, Scaled Composites set out to become the first privatized company to obtain manned sub-orbital flight and to win the Ansari X Prize of $10 Million. To successfully win the X Prize, Scaled Composites developed two new and innovative aircraft known as White Knight and SpaceShipOne. White Knight, the carrier airplane, was to take SpaceShipOne to altitude where the spacecraft would then fire its rocket and ascend to space. On October 4, 2004, SpaceShipOne successfully completed its second flight in two weeks to win the X Prize. Now, a joint effort

The other types of radiation would generally be harmful to us. Too much UV radiation would cause cancer and dangerous mutations.

NASA's Budget is Worth ItThe large budget given to NASA is worth it. With the space program we gain a lot of knowledge about our surroundings and our future. Through the space program we can measure all sorts of thing about our planet, like air pressure and ocean water temperature. The technology that NASA has developed helps us in everyday life. Satellites relay TV and communications signals. Information gathered in shuttle development prompted improvements in smoke detectors. The development of space suits helped scientists create better home insulation for those cold nights. Another way that NASA based technology develops helps us is found in the suits that astronauts wear in space

Of the many reasons for America's prosperity, technology played one of the most vital parts in bringing the great economic and cultural prosperity that America experienced during the 1920s. New advancements, new discoveries, and new inventions such as the car, radio, pharmacy and theatre improved American lives in a dramatic way, but not without a few negative side effects.One of the first major inventions to become a national craze was the automobile.

In my opinion, that explains why Hidden Figures underperformed internationally. Black movies only perform domestically. According to the New York Times, “The international marketplace is still fairly racist.”
I picked the movie Hidden figure because I believe it is one of the few movies that gathers all the genre that I like, space, civil rights and a it is a true story. Additionally, as an African-American student I was interested in picking a “Black film.”

On the other hand a spokesman for the #2cigarrete maker says the his company is trying to win over adults not children. He says theirefforts are to communicate with and gain the business of the adults who choose to smoke. Ithink the tobacco companies can say that they are trying to gain the busines of adults, butthey know that they are also trying to appeal to kids. Kids who smoke are more likely to growup to be adults who smoke, than kids who choose not to smoke. But with this new fall insales, that means either more adults are quitting, or kids aren't buying, which in my opinion,either sounds good.

make a house a true home. A home should have a warm and welcoming environment that gives you a sense of safety and security. A home is where you can feel like you belong and never fear being yourself. A home should also include the people and animals that you love and exist as space for them to gather. Additionally, a home should encase and display things that you love. Without these qualities, the feeling of “home” does not exist.
To that point, the author notes several quirky attributes of her home that she loves. “I love my home with a ferocity totally out of proportion to its appearance or location. I love dumb things about it: the hot water heater, the plastic rack you drain dishes in

The internet is a tool which is still in its infancy. It appears to me that the explosion of the internet resulted in an incredible addiction to it, and rightfully so. Its amazing. But in my experience, people are separating from it because of that very recognition. They are aware of the level of attention it requires and are learning how to use it as a tool instead of being the tool used by the internet. It is true that the web requires a level of multitasking to engage with it, but the information one obtains from that tool can be further investigated once disconnected and in a space that allows for deeper deliberation. The addition of sharing ideas around the world with other intellectuals is absolutely amazing and provides an incredible space for critical conversation without having to be in the same physical space. While it may be distracting at times, I believe that the information the internet provides ultimately increases our ability to critically think.

I feel that it is something that we don’t get to discuss so often so that is why many people are still eager to share their side of the story or their opinion on their subject in a safe space such as a classroom.
