Who formed the National Aeronautics and Space Administration - NASA?
Independent U.S. government agency established in 1958 for research and development of vehicles and activities for aeronautics and space exploration. Its goals include improving human understanding of the universe, the solar system, and Earth and establishing a permanent human presence in space. NASA, previously the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics (NACA), was created largely in response to the Soviet Union's launch of Sputnik in 1957. Its organization was well under way in 1961, when Pres. John F. Kennedy proposed that the U.S. put a man on the Moon by the end of the 1960s (see Apollo). Later unmanned programs (e.g., Viking, Mariner, Voyager, Galileo) explored other planets and interplanetary space, and orbiting observatories (e.g., the Hubble Space Telescope) have studied the cosmos. NASA also developed and launched various satellites with Earth applications, such as Landsat and communications and weather satellites. It planned and developed the space shuttle and led the development and construction of the International Space Station.

Radio, possibly lasers. Not sure about that last but would not put it past the military and alphabet soup agencies. Seems to me that a laser could be aimed exactly at a satellite and so there would be no need to broadcast radio which other nations might be able to pick up.

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration NASA says that there is ice on some parts of the moon. What does this tell you about temperatures on these parts of the moon?
The message is that it's really cold there. As the moon has no atmosphere, there is no atmospheric pressure. Atmospheric pressure has a pronounced effect on the boiling point of water. If the water does exist on the moon and it does lie on the surface in a "no-pressure" situation, it would have to b…e very cold to remain there under the circumstances. ( Full Answer )

Before humans actually went into space, one of the prevailing theories of the perils of space flight was that humans might not be able to survive long periods of weightlessness. For several years, there had been a serious debate among scientists about the effects of prolonged weightlessness. America…n and Russian scientists utilized animals - mainly monkeys, chimps and dogs - in order to test each country's ability to launch a living organism into space and bring it back alive and unharmed. ( Full Answer )
first they sent a chimp then they sent a dog. I'm not lying, it all happened around the 1950's
All manned space missions by NASA have launched from the Kennedy Space Center at Cape Canaveral, Florida. There were plans years ago to launch military Space Shuttles in a polar orbit from Vandenberg AFB near Santa Barbara, CA, but that never happened.
Multiple space shuttle orbiter vehicles are necessary to meet launch schedules. While reusable, each orbiter requires 6-9 months of refurbishment and processing before it is ready for the next mission. NASA refers to this as the "flow"
In 1958 which us president signed the national aeronautics and space act officially establishing nasa?
The National Aeronautics and Space Act (Pub.L. 85-568) is the United States federal statute that created the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). The Act, which followed close on the heels of the Soviet Union's launch of Sputnik, was drafted by the United States House Select Committ…ee on Astronautics and Space Exploration and on July 29, 1958 was signed by President Eisenhower.

so astronauts don't get bored in space they will be active and will be moving around.
NASA was created under the National Aeronautics and Space Act on July 29, 1958 and went into operation on October 1, 1958.
A monkey is close to a human so it was to see how a human type system would react into space. Plus, if there had been an accident a monkey would have been lost and not a human. Monkeys can also be trained to do things that would be needed as well.
Formerly in use were the Challenger and Columbia Currently in use are the Endeavour, Atlantis, Discovery, and Enterprise
To study how the universe works, and to possibly travel to another planet should something happen to Earth. Also, to search for life in space, and to develop new tools and processes to use on Earth. NASA is also generally seeking knowledge about Man's place in the universe.

The names of the space shuttles are: Columbia, Enterprise, Challenger, Atlantis, Discovery and Endeavour. And here is some interesting information about each one: Columbia (OV-099) - 1st reusable space shuttle to orbit Earth. First launched on April 12, 1981, the 20th anniversary of the first… human spaceflight (Soviet Air Force pilot Maj. Yuri Gagarin on Apr. 12, 1961); Vehicle lost with crew of seven aboard near conclusion of STS-107/Spacelab mission during re-entry on Feb. 1, 2003 over the state of Texas. Enterprise (OV-101) - Originally was to be named "Constitution" by president Gerald Ford, but was changed after a write-in campaign by fans of the 1960's " Star Trek " TV series. Orbital Vehicle #101 was used for the initial Approach & Landing Tests (ALTs) of the Space Transportation System (STS) at NASA-Dryden Flight Reseach Center, Edwards AFB, Calif. It later performed "fit checks" at launch pads 39A and 39B at the Kennedy Space Center, Florida and SLC-6 (Space Launch Complex #6) at Vandenberg AFB, Calif. Once planned to be retrofitted for orbital flight, it was deemed too heavy and cost-prohibitive to be accomplished. It is currently on display at the National Air & Space Museum's Udvar-Hazy Annex next to Dulles International Airport in McLean, Virginia, but is scheduled to be relocated to the Intrepid Air-Sea-Space Museum in New York City. Challenger (OV-102) - Second operation vehicle made its public debut during 4th of July ceremonies at NASA-Dryden while president Ronald Reagan attended landing of space shuttle orbiter Columbia after mission STS-4, declaring the STS program "fully operational." Flew first flight on STS-6 in 1984. Vehicle lost on Jan. 28, 1986 with crew of seven approximately 73 seconds into flight during mission STS-51L over the Atlantic Ocean after launch from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. A combination of a design deficiency in the solid rocket boosters (SRBs), compounded by lower than normal and freezing temperatures overnight played contributing factors in the failure of "O" rings in the SRBs Atlantis (OV-103) - Currently in use; Scheduled to fly the last shuttle mission in the 30-year history of the STS program in June 2011 after which it will be placed on permanent display at the Kennedy Space Center. Discovery (OV-104) - The "workhorse" of the fleet, completing the most diverse space missions in the history of the program, including two "Return to Flight" missions after the loss of Challenger in 1986 and Columbia in 2003. Recently completed its final mission in 2011 and is slated to be placed on permanent display at the National Air & Space Museum's Udvar-Hazy Annex next to Dulles International Airport in McLean, Virginia. Endeavour (OV-105) - Built as replacement to Challenger; name chosen during a nation-wide contest by school children. It utilizes the British spelling and is named in honor of Capt James Cook's ship of exploration. Scheduled to launch on its 25th and final flight no earlier than May 2, 2011. Scheduled to be placed on permanent display at the California Science Center in Los Angeles, Calif. across from the campus of the University of Southern California (USC). ( Full Answer )

5cc? cc means cubic centimetres which is equal to ml, so 5ml. if you mean cl, then that is equal to 50ml
The Shuttles had several antennas, and spoke with NASA Mission Control in Houston via radio uplink. There were typically 2 channels, one for the public, and a scrambled, encrypted military channel.
The 'answer' is the number that 'c' must be, if 5c is really the same as -75. In order to find out what number that is, you could use 'algebra'. First, write the equation, so that you can look at it: 5c = -75 Now, use the law of algebra that says: "If equals are divided by equals, then… the quotients are equal". The left and right sides of your equation are equals. Divide them both by 5, and that law says that the quotients on both sides will be equal: c = -15 ( Full Answer )
100% - if the missions aren't under some type of military control (e.g., classified satellite launches from CCAFS or Vandenberg AFB), then they're considered National Security missions, even though they're under civilian control for manned flight missions. It's not necessarily that the missions or p…rograms are classified or not, but putting the program under National Security or Military control gives it a certain amount of protection that wouldn't be afforded if they were strictly civilian missions and programs. Prior to the retirement of the Shuttle fleet, all Shuttle commanders and co-pilots were always active duty military officers (usually former test pilots) who had been selected for the Astronaut program. This is also largely due to the fact that the most NASA centers and key launch installations are also on military bases (e.g., Kennedy Space Center (Cape Canaveral AFS) Langley (Langley AFB), Vandenberg AFB (military satellite launches).
