Space Travel

Man is inquisitive by nature. From the early days of his life on earth, he tried to know more about space. Later on, man observed the sun, the moon, and the stars and adjusted their lifestyle in accordance with their position and movement. The days, weeks, months, and years were calculated according to their relative places in the sky and their movements. Later on, telescope and other sophisticated instruments were invented to observe the sky and have a clearer knowledge of the stars, planets, and other such objects. Then human beings tried to send rockets to space. The rockets were made accordingly and those were thrown at a tremendous speed to overcome the gravitational pull of the earth. In fact, their minimum speed was needed to be seven miles per second. The rockets brought valuable information in respect of space. Then it was thought that man must go to space.

So a dog named Lika was sent to space on an experimental basis. When it was felt that man had become fully prepared to venture into the vastness of space a man went to space. The name of that person is Yuri Gagarin. He was a citizen of the U.S.S.R. Afterwards a lady of the same country named Valentine Tereshkova went to space. Space travel went on and people from the USA also were sent to space. Then the man tried to land on the moon. In the year 1969, a spaceship with three astronauts named Neil Armstrong, Edwin Aldrin, and Collins landed on the moon. Armstrong and Aldrin walked on the moon's surface. They returned to earth with more information about the moon and space.

Afterward, space stations have been launched. Some scientists stay there also. Scientists and engineers are sent there to do repair work. Rockets have been sent to Mars and other faraway planets to collect information in respect of life there. Rakesh Sharma was the first Indian astronaut to go to space. 

Recently the Indian Space ship has landed on the moon. It's a great achievement for Indian scientists. ISRO is the one and only one who attempts Mars mission with no faileure.
