Moon, four letters that have generated questions. Today’s the 40th birthday of the first trip of humanity to the moon, but not all, there are peoples that simply do not believe that the man can leave our world and walk in other earth, colder and stranger, but, another planet.
Wanted talk about this ”mistery” that we saw in this trip, who for me been the stuff more important and beautiful who man already did. For who saw all the projects NASA, starting with in the operation MERCURY, that had a simple mission, put a man in orbital earth,this happened with two or three years of spacial search always running for pick the URSS technology.
On this period the president of US was the young Kenedy and many men think that he were crazy when says:
”I challenge the US the put a man in the moon untill the end of this decade”
Wow! They just put the man in orbital and now the country wanted more and more, wanted leave the second place of the rush spacial and stays there, on the top of the world, in just nine years almost impossible….. but not for they.
The challenge was done, and the search begun. Soon after this started the project GEMINI that been of crucial importance for the real mission: the MOON. With the GEMINI they are doing all the tests, walk in the space sideral, putting two fogetes side by side… and there going the man…. to the moon.
So starts the project APOLO, the unique thing that was missing was the missil superpotente the enough to do the man win the fight with the gravity and leaves home. But the arms forces north american not disapoints, they was doing the more potente machine,SATURNO V, this amazing stuff was able to transport the man untill the moon.
In just a minute flying , Saturn V, had already won a fight with the sound. Yes, it is. The speed of the Saturn was up to six times faster than sound. Powerful, with the mission APOLO 10 was done to test the lunar module and there the man was in lunar orbit, took twelve rounds in lunar orbit and returned back to the home.
NASA likes of do the things with safety and in 1969, missing some months for end the decade the NASA says:
”Let’s go man, the time is now ”.
And ” where we go?” the simple answer was ” for the moon,axl, for the moon…”
Apollo 11, with three men leave the earth to do history…There Neil Armstrong placed the feet for the first time in another planet, was fantastic, nobody was believe there.
All the especulation about all this be false, is so much arrogance and without faith in the humanity, because was not just the US, was everybody, we are evolving day by day. This fact must show for all the people that, how says Obama,” YES WE CAN”.. and the phrase that represent our more important discovery was:
“One small step for man, one great leap for humanity” Neil Armstrong.
