Satellites have been the guiding force of human space exploration for a long as space exploration has existed. The following material that is being presented is overview of satellite history and I hope all readers of this material find that it is informative and interesting. A satellite is any object that orbits a larger object. This being so makes the most famous satellite, our moon. (picture of moon from Apollo 11) Since early times humans have been fascinated with our moon, and

Military aircraft has become more sophisticated in variety, effectiveness in war situations, and special maneuvering techniques in recent years. With the advance of stealth technology, many new and very effective aircraft have been developed. The F-117A was used during Operation Dessert Stor

Aviation Powerplants Aviation has reshaped modern life and has provided for extreme convenience for traveling businessmen, vacationers, and thrillseekers alike. It also plays a key role in military operations of all kinds. Although aircraft design progression plays a predominant role in advancing speed, agility, utility, and entertainment; none of these would be possible without powerplant development, refinement and modification. Aviation powerplants originated with the Wright flyer a

Designs and technologies of fighter aircraft's have come a long way this past half century, enabling aircraft's to break the sound barrier and fly at speeds of mach 1, something they do now is a matter of routine. Wing platform has changed from strait to swept wings. The use of exotic metals and materials is increasing, and more powerful propulsion units are being developed. the idea was to get a fighter aircraft with a wing optimized for a high load factor and bullet fr

Biological warfare is war waged with deadly chemicals, biological agents, or radioactive materials (CBR). They can be used to kill large amounts of people, destroy food, or just temporarily stun them for a matter of time so troops can come in and torture them or do whatever troops led by an manipulative tyrant who destroys everything. Using CBR, allowed you to kill everything and leave the buildings standing instead of nuclear weapons which destroy everything, put fallout in the air, and ha

Introduction Security for airline passengers currently is handled in two arenas-one international and one national. Internationally security standards set by the International Civil Aviation Organization's (ICAO) Annex 17, offers a least common denominator approach to security. While accepted internationally, these standards fall short of providing a tough set of measures that protect air carriers that have been targeted by terrorists. For countries like Ireland, however, Annex 17 is a starting

Today, modern aircraft havethe capability to fly farther, are more highly automated, and require fewerflight crewmembers for operation. While aircraft and the operational demandsof a global aviation industry have evolved, human requirements for sleephave not. Therefore, the physiological capabilities and limitations ofthe human oper

Our Most Renowned Aviator Sir Charles Edward Kingsford-Smith, known to the world as Smithy remains one of the most celebrated pilots of international aviation's golden age. For seven years, from 1928 to his death in 1935, he was the most revered public hero in Australia. His epic and dangerous oceanic flights, through destructive weather in fragile aeroplanes, were followed on radio around the world like the moon missions of 40 years later. At the end of his great pioneer journey

7 December 1999 The Challenger Space Shuttle Disaster The morning was clear, bright, and cold on January 28th, 1986, in Cape Canaveral, Florida. The skies were clear allowing the sun to shine over the launch area at the Kennedy Space Center and attempt to increase its freezing temperature. On launch pad 39B icicles dangled from the launch tower, pad structure, and other launch equipment (Lewis 127) as the space shuttle Challenger stood in a powerful vertical silhouette against the

Regulation of Aviation on a Federal, State and Local Level Regulation of Aviation at the Federal, State and Local Level Aviation has an impact on everybody and everything. Not only does it have an impact on a worldwide base, but it also has as big an impact on local business. Aviation in regulated in many different ways nationwide. There are many regulations that are federal, such as airspace, and must be obeyed by everyone and there are regulations that are local, such as traffic p
