Transcript of TO THE MOON!

BY SARAH BORST TO THE MOON Project Mercury Flights 1-12 Project Gemini Apollo Missions 11 The Space Race. It's on. And Project Mercury is ready. All geared up to go. Their gonna drive circles around, well, the Earth. Project Mercury's goal is to orbit the Earth. And as they say it in Latin, Demum Scopum, or, they achieved their goal. Mercury 1 was the first manned American flight
Mercury 2's spacecraft disappeared underwater when the hatch came off unexpectedly.
Mercury 3 was the first American flight to orbit the Earth
Mercury 4 orbited the earth 3 times.
Mercury 5 carried engineering tests
Mercury 6 was the first flight in space for more than a day, was the last one-manned orbit, and orbited the Earth 22 times. Project Gemini was the second human Space Flight of NASA. Gus Grissom helped with the developement and design of Gemini Crafts. All manned launches were launched in Cape Canaveral, Florida by Titan 2. Gemini 1 was the first test flight of Gemini
Gemini 2 suborbital flight to test the heat sheild
Gemini 3 was the first manned Gemini flight
Gemini 4 included the first extravehicular activity
Gemini 5 was the first week long flight
Gemini 6 failed rendezvous and docking
Gemini 7 was used for rendezvous
Gemini 8 accomplished first docking with an unmanned vehicle
Gemini 9 did 44 orbits, 3 different types of rendezvous, and 2 hours of EVA.
Gemini 10 had the first use of propulsion systems from Agena
Gemini 11 holds the record altitude of 1,369km
Gemini 12 rendezvoused and docked with Agena Apollo 1 set fire and killed the crew.
Apollo 2 was an engineering project.
Apollo 3 was sub-orbital test flight
Apollo 4 was the largest launch vehicle ever to attempt flight
Apollo 5 tested the Lunar Module in space
Apollo 6 intended on sending a CSM, LTA, and an LM into space.
Apollo 7 was the first manned USASP.
Apollo 8 was the first to orbit the moon
Apollo 9 was the first flight to test the lander in space.
Apollo 10 was a practice moon landing
Apollo 11 was the first to land on the moon
Apollo 12 was the second to land on the moon
Apollo 13's oxygen tanks exploded and the crew barely made it back
Apollo 14-17 made it to the moon
Apollo 18 was cancelled and was used to help launch SkyLab. Now, Kennedy had said, "before this decade is out, I'm landing a man on the Moon and returning him safely to the Earth." And exactly that happened. On July 20, 1969, Neil Armstrong was the first man to set foot on the moon. Later on, he was returned home safely.

Google Images These were Armstrong's very words. And they are true. It was a simple one foot in front of the other step to step on the moon, but a giant leap for mankind because humans had never landed on the moon. And we were the first ones there. The Astrochimp, Ham, was a little part of Project Mercury. He was born in Cameroon in July, 1956. At the age of three he had started training to go on a space expedition. On January 31, 1961, he was flown into space. His flight was 16 minutes and 39 seconds. Astrochimp Ham Goals Project Gemini's goals were:
Long-duration spaceflight
rendezvous and docking
extra-vehicular activity
targeted re-entry and Earth Landing
