NASA classified the mission as a "Successful Failure" because the crew was rescued in time to avert any fatalities (Frasketi, 2010). The spent upper stage was successfully impacted in space. This mission was however characterized by an astronaut exposing his colleagues to German measles days before the flight. One of the astronauts had no immunity to the measles and had to be replaced by another module pilot. The flight however took 5 days and 22.9 hours (Frasketi, 2010). The command module was named "Odyssey" and "Aquarius" was the name given to the Lunar module. After the replacement of the sick crew member, the crew was comprised of three astronauts constituting of a commander, one lunar and another commander module pilot (Frasketi, 2010).

The obvious branch to enlist in is the air force, though actually the army and navy both have aeronautics engineering programs, too (Glenn Research Center). Enlisting can be tricky, especially with worried parents, but when it is the only way of achieving your goals then some risks must be taken. After enlisting comes boot camp, which most people know is no picnic. Luckily, air force boot camps are not as physically arduous as some of the other branches' basic training programs, but it is still a six-week period of grueling tests of stamina and willpower -- you have to want to be in the air force to get there (Education and Career). If selected and approved, M.O.S> School comes after boot camp, where the additional graduate and professional level training will be required with military precision, giving one the knowledge and the skills to immediately enter the workforce where….

It also develops and integrates spacecraft systems and subsystems, electronic and communications payloads, intercontinental ballistic missile systems, and high energy laser systems and subsystems in the areas of space, defense, and electronics technology (Northrop Grumman Corporation (NOC), 2009).
The aytheon Company designs, develops, manufactures, integrates, and supports technological products, services, and solutions for governmental and commercial customers in the United States as a well as internationally. It does business in six different segments: Integrated Defense Systems (IDS), Intelligence and Information Systems (IIS), Missile Systems (MS), Network Centric Systems (NCS), Space and Airborne Systems (SAS), and Technical Services (TS). The IDS segment provides ballistic missile defense, including space, air, surface, and subsurface; naval; and maritime and homeland security solutions (aytheon Co. (TN), 2009).

Keeping an eye on the competition is always important for a company to do in order to grow their share of the market. The advantage that Lockheed seems to….

For instance, currently the law says that any use of UAVs in civil airspace must be preceded by a detailed flight plan 30 days in advance of the scheduled flight. Some advocates of UAVs, including the U.S. military and aeronautical manufacturers, want to change this to allow flights on the same day a flight plan is filed -- just as with traditional aircraft (Graham-owe, 2003). The legitimate fear is that a change in this law would pave the way for UAV freight flights and, eventually, UAV passenger flights. Those in the aviation industry concerned with the safety of passengers recognize that such a move could put many people's lives in danger.
One major safety concern has already been mentioned: the lack of sophisticated detection and avoidance technology for UAVs that allow them to be adaptable to changing conditions. Another is that UAVs rely on radio or satellite links to computer….

d.).
Having the most profound impact on containerization and cargo-handling operations were the number of huge containerships that came online in the mid-1990s. In order to replace wasteful ships, meet shippers' demands, and maximize loads, larger, faster and more efficient containerships began to be introduced. The largest, dubbed super containers or post-Panamax vessels were engineered to carry 4,000 to 5,000 20-foot equivalent units (TEUs), rather than the most prevalent generation capacity of 3,000 to 3,400 TEUs. These large vessels have a force on land operations such as on-dock rail services and intermodal connections. Additionally, cranes must have a broad enough reach in order to stretch across as many as six containers (Marine cargo handling, 2010).

Many ports across the world have begun to gear up for the anticipated growth in container traffic, which is thought to likely increase for all of the world's major trades. Trade with Asia and Latin America has….

The student has provided research on various vibration analytic techniques such as the use of Laser Vibrometry for Damage Detection using Lamb Waves in discovery processes to detect microcracks.
Outcome 3. The Information Literacy competency was satisfied through the research efforts made by the student through data gathering regarding aircraft structures and vibrations qualification techniques retrieved from the MIL-STD-810F and NASA Langley esearch Laboratory. Techniques include Fatigue Damage Spectrum (FDS) which enables the use of testing and servicing evidence to be utilized on more than one aircraft platform and Shock esponse Spectrum (SS). All of these techniques are used to promote spacecraft/aircraft airworthiness and sustainment.

Outcome 4. The Communication competency was fulfilled through an analysis of the research collected from NASA experiments and FAA studies and their influence on dealing with structural failure through shock loads and transient vibrations. Furthermore, discussions focused on how these results have shaped methodologies in the….

Sometimes, the choice of what to explore has been sensationalistic, preferring to pursue exciting new frontiers instead of areas of space where collecting more data would allow us to make useful determinations. This is more of an administrative issue than a scientific issue. It has more to do with the suits on Capitol Hill than the engineers in Florida.
V. Future of NASA

A. What the new focus/goals should be

As with every government agency, NASA is plagued by a lack of accountability on the administrative side of things. However, it is important to remember that NASA was not established for administrative feats. NASA was established to explore the Universe, which it has continued to do even in its worst hours. Even when it is not delivering spectacles for the public to awe at, it is accumulating a steady stream of information and the capacity to make sense of all the phenomena….

20th century has been one of remarkable technological advancements and of increased need to further improve human existence and the speed through which man runs about its everyday life. These ideas alone have demonstrated an immense capacity of man to research and invent new ideas, mechanisms, and to elaborate on the most important technological evolutions to set these mechanisms in motion. However, these evolutions have not been without flaws and have often cost the lives of individuals and caused immense human and material damages. The present research focuses on the way in which these trends have applied to the aeronautic industry. The approach is twofold and focuses on the one hand on the technological advancements, and, on the other hand, on mitigating the risks associated with these advancements so that the development would have less negative impacts and human kind can benefit from the positive aspects of technology.

Summary of work completed

To help ensure that affected personnel had an opportunity to communicate their needs for the solution, a telephonic interview with a work coordinator at Ames Central Travel Office was conducted recently; in addition, this telephonic interview was followed by a personal visit to the Ames esearch Center in order gain a clearer understanding of the current workflow process. The end users of the solution provided very insightful suggestion as to what features they would like incorporated in the system. This meeting was highly productive and helped illuminate the numerous steps that were involved in travel request processing and administration that were unclear or unknown prior to the visit.

Because the software development team for this project is currently working on other initiatives, a meeting has been scheduled with them to discuss the scope and duration of the entire project. Preparatory to this meeting, hard copies of current travel….

Failure to Promise: An Uncommon Path to Professoriate is Dr. C. Moorer's self-help book that aims to motivate the reader and help to establish a series of self-analytical tools that will help the reader achieve his or her goals. As an individual pursuing a degree in aeronautical science, it is difficult to fully relate to Dr. Moorer's journey to become an engineer and professor because of the background that he describes in his book. However, it is interesting to see how Dr. Moorer, through his own experiences, has come to understand strategic concepts that are frequently taught in managerial programs and how many of his concepts can be traced back to theories that have been studied for centuries.
As someone that has worked hard and has been forced to overcome struggles, personally and academically, I find it difficult to take much of Dr. Moorer's struggles to heart because it appears….


(2) Analyzing all accident data without regard to the type of airframe provides for an easy sampling and less potential bias toward fixed wing vs. rotary wing aircraft.

(3) Not including ground accidents into the research will allow the research to focus only on aviation accidents.

(4) Limiting the research to a four-year period; 2003 to 2006 will provide an adequate sampling of the data and not constrain the research results.

Assumptions

First Assumption

The first assumption is that accident data to be used will be an adequate sample of class a through class C accidents within the USAREUR area of operations.

Second Assumption

The second assumption is that ARMS inspection dates derived from official USAREUR Publications and historical data files will reflect actual dates of ARMS inspections.

Third Assumption

The third assumption is that current ARMS inspections continue to incorporate comprehensive checklist used to evaluate resource management and assist in improving operational readiness and safety for USAREUR aviation.

All of the transportation agencies were consolidated into one big agency -- the new Department of Transportation in 1966, establishing the National Transportation Safety Board as an agency that was independent inside of the department. This new board was also given the responsibility of determining the "probable cause" of: 1) highway accidents selected in cooperation with the states; 2) every passenger train accident, fatal railway accidents, and any railroad accident that caused significant damage; 3) big marine accidents, including any marine accident that involved a public vessel and a nonpublic vessel; 4) pipeline accidents involving a fatality or significant property damage; and lastly, 5) fatalities or major injuries that were caused by the release of hazardous materials (2004).
The creation of the NTSB showed that Congress was thinking that a single agency could come up with a higher level of safety than the individual model agencies that were all working….
