The Flying Book
By David Blatner
Astronauts is a collection of stories that tell the biggest a comishments and failures that Americia has ever seen. It tells of the first man in space, Yuri Gagarin, John Glenn, the famous Niel Armstrong, Sally Ride, Christa McAuliffe, Mae Jemison.
The Flying Book is a book that explains airplanes.
It takes the reader into the cockpit, the control
tower, baggage and security systems, the airplane
manufacturing plant and more. The main reason of
this book is to explain how air travel is possible if
an airplane weighs more than air. This book also
examines the design and testing of airplanes, the
effects of weather on an airplane, and the
aerodynamics that have shaped the way
wings of airplanes are made.
The Flying Book is an interesting book as
it describes how airplanes work, things that
can go wrong while in the air, all of the
cockpit instruments, flight statistics, the
history of airplanes, and random facts
throughout the book in each section.
Since the world had been entirly discovered man looked for its next adventure. Yuri Gagarin was Russian scientist that brought this to man he was the first man in space. Jphn Glenn was the oldest man to ever go into space. Niel Armstrong was the first man to take steps on the moon. Sally Ride was the first woman to travel in space. Christa McAuliffe was the first ordinary citizen in space, however she lost her life in the greatest disaster in the history of NASA. Mae Jemison was the first African American to go into space.
George Cayley thought of the idea
of using one device to move the aircraft
forward and another to keep it in the air.
This is now known as the propeller
Orville and Wilbur Wright were the first
people to succeed in flying a controllable,
self-propelled aircraft. It was named:
the Wright Flyer.
Charles W. Hamilton flew over
Knoxville, Tennessee and became
the first person to fly at night.
Flight becomes commercial
in the United States.
The jet engine was invented
in England by Frank Whittle
Charles Lindberg was the first
person to ever fly from New York
to Paris nonstop. He did it in
33 1/2 hours by himself.
First ever human space
flight- Yuri Gagarin
First human to ever land
on the moon - Neil Armstrong
First space station
First rocket to reach edge of space
First impact into another world (Moon)
Nasa creates many different "spin off" products. These new products have greatly effected society today. Some of the morerecent products that NASA helped develope are the Tail Rotors on Helicopters, the GPS Software Packages, Inflatable Antennas that the army uses.
Now that people understand how airplanes
fly and work, people are able to focus on
getting new technology into airplanes.
Because of the success, airplanes have
influenced airplane companies such as Airbus
to come up with a bigger airplane to make
flights go further, faster, and hold more

The advanced Tail Rotors on Helicopters were advanced by NASA. They intoducted airfoils into the Tail Rotors of their Space Shuttles, this brought new levels of stability to thier Shuttles. So the inventors of helicopters decided to try this on their own helicopters and got the same results.
Birds, insects, and other flying animals influenced the
technology of airplanes because engineers used the idea
of wings and put an immobile form of a wing to make an
airplane fly. Engineers are now coming up with the idea
of having the airplane's outer skin change shape at
different phases of flight, mimicking birds by narrowing
and sweeping back the wings at higher speeds, but it
won't be introduced into the public until 2030 because
of the complexity.
Airplanes use aerodynamics in order to fly
effinciently. Cars use the same concept to
make them drive efficiently. As the
aerodynamics of airplanes improve and
become more advanced, so do cars. Once
cars have been improved with aerodynamics,
so can all of the other forms of transportation
such as trains and buses.
The GPS Software Packages that are released every year are developed by NASA for them to be able to track their shuttles all the way through the missions. They also use it when a shuttle reenters the atmosphere, so they can find it and examine it. Now almost a flields of transportation uses GPS location.
First nonstop flight across the
United States - John Macready -
6 hours 55 minutes
Airplanes were the first of all the flying
devices that we have now. The flying
devices that we have now besides airplanes
are the helicopter, blimp, and hang glider.
All of these used different methods to get
off the ground, but they all were influenced
by the airplane because the airplane was the
One of the other things that NASA
has created that has become a "spin off" is inflatable antennas. These antennas are used mostly by the army so on a battle site they can keep intouch with the U.S.A. government. But NASA uses it when they get into space they just inflate it and can connect with mission control.
Astronautical engineering is very similar in idea and
concept to aeronautical engineering. Space shuttles
and airplanes are similar because they both depend on
satellites to know where they are going. NASA
created the GPS (Global Positioning System) and now
airplanes and space shuttles use this system in order
to be tracked and find where they are going. This has
widely affected the transportation because people
don't get lost with a GPS.

These two fields are also connected in the way
of the experienced pilots that man these dangerous crafts. Some of the pilots of the
space shuttles used to be expereinced airplane pilots. They just changed the craft they were flying and where they were going. Neil Armstrong is an example of type of person he used to be a pilot in the Korean War. then getting the message about People Wanted at NASA.
Both the space shuttle and airplanes have similar
designs. Airplanes have wings to take off into the
air and fly, and space shuttles have wings in order
to be stableized. Also, airplanes, and space
shuttles use many of the same technologies in
order to takeoff, fly, and land safely. An example
of this is using autopilot. The airplane was
created first and then the aircraft was invented
later, so they were able to explore space.
