MACHINE: Apollo 11 mission statement before the United States Congress: “I believe that this nation should commit itself to achieving the goal, before this decade is out, of landing a man on the Moon and returning him safely to the Earth.”. Each crewman of Apollo 11 had made a spaceflight before this mission, making it only the second all-veteran crew (the other being Apollo 10) in human spaceflight history. Collins was originally slated to be the Command Module Pilot (CMP) on Apollo 8 but was removed when he required surgery on his back and was replaced by Jim Lovell, his backup for that flight.

After Collins was medically cleared, he took what would have been Lovell’s spot on Apollo 11; as a veteran of Apollo 8, Lovell was transferred to Apollo 11’s backup crew, but promoted to backup commander. In early 1969, Bill Anders accepted a job with the National Space Council effective in August and announced his retirement as an astronaut. At that point Ken Mattingly was moved into parallel training with Anders as backup Command Module Pilot.

MAJOR EVENTS IN SPACE

FRUIT FLIES

The Mars 2 was an unmanned space probe of the Mars program, a series of unmanned Mars landers and orbiters launched by the Soviet Union in the early 1970s. Mars 2 and Mars 3 missions consisted of identical spacecraft, each with an orbiter and an attached lander, they were launched by Proton K heavy launch vehicle with a Blok D upper stage. The lander of Mars 2 became the first man-made object to reach the surface of Mars. The orbiter engine performed a burn to put the spacecraft into a 1380 x 24,940 km, 18 hour orbit about Mars with an inclination of 48.9 degrees. Scientific instruments were generally turned on for about 30 minutes near periapsis. The orbiter primary scientific objectives were to image the Martian surface and clouds, determine the temperature on Mars, study the topography, composition and physical properties of the surface, measure properties of the atmosphere, monitor the solar wind and the interplanetary and Martian

magnetic fields, and act as communications relays to send signals from the landers to Earth. The Mars 2 orbiter sent back a large volume of data covering the period from December 1971 to March 1972, although transmissions continued through August. It was announced that Mars 2 had completed their mission by 22 August 1972, after 362 orbits. The probe, combined with Mars 3, sent back a total of 60 pictures. The images and data revealed mountains as high as 22 km, atomic hydrogen and oxygen in the upper atmosphere, surface temperatures ranging from -110 °C to +13 °C, surface pressures of 5.5 to 6 mbar (0.55 to 0.6 kPa), water vapor concentrations 5000 times less than in Earth’s atmosphere, the base of the ionosphere starting at 80 to 110 km altitude, and grains from dust storms as high as 7 km in the atmosphere. The images and data enabled creation of surface relief maps. The orbiter engine performed a burn to put the spacecraft into a 1380.

space and bring it back alive and unharmed. Animal were the first to sent to space before the manned space missions was done. The major reason was that they did not want to risk the human lives. The animal was sent to space to investigate the biological processes, the microgravity gravity and the space flight on these animals. Only 5 countries have used the animals in the space programs: The United States, The Soviet Union, France, Japan and China. The first animals that spent into the space were fruit flies along with corn seeds aboard a launched V2 rocket in space. V2 missions carried biological samples of moss.

Autumn 1942. The dining table was full of revelers. In Usedom this day, the spirit of camaraderie was strong. Walter Dornberger glanced around the room. These were men that he had hand chosen and during this night of celebration at Dornberger's home the feeling of personal accomplishment was strong for each of them. They had achieved some thing together, as a team, something heretofore unimaginable to even the most celebrated scientific minds of the day. Dornberger rose to make a toast; “For the first time we have invaded space with our rocket. Mark this well, we have used space as a bridge between two points on and probably around the planet earth. We have proven rocket propulsion practicable for space travel. This third day of October, 1942, is the first of a new era of transportation: that of space travel.”But this accomplishment was born out of the necessity to build the ultimate weapon for the Führer and Nazi Germany—not space travel the speech most probably continued by exalting the creation of

The flies were sent to experiment the effects of exposure of radiations at high altitudes. Along with the fruit flies cargo contained cotton and rye seeds. The rocket did not, and was not intended to, orbit the Earth. Purpose of the experiment was to test how radiation may affect various biological samples. These became first living organisms from Earth to enter outer space, apart from any accidental.

There is no doubt that many of the men present pocessed a romance with the notion of space flight, but there is also no mistaking what their project mission was to bring victories.

The Nazi’s used the ballistic missile in the Second World War to specifically target London and later Antwerp. In recent years the Vergeltungswaffe Zwei (Vengeance Weapon 2) has been portrayed as the Germany’s last desperate hope. However, planning and production of the rocket weapon was extensive and wide ranging. It was the culmination of years of strategic thinking. The majority of this black-project research was conducted at a super-secret location named Heeresversuchsanstalt Peenemünde (Army Research Center Peenemünde)—known today simply as "Peenemünde".

INVENTOR: Walter Dornberger United States military launches fruit flies into space utilizing a refurbished V2 rocket. These became first living organisms from Earth to enter outer space, apart from any accidental bacteria that may have been unknowingly launched into space in prior missins. Along with the fruit flies cargo contained cotton and rye seeds. The rocket did not, and was not intended to, orbit the Earth. Purpose of the experiment was to test how radiation may affect various biological samples. Fruit flies were found alive after parachuting down to Earth in a capsule, setting a stage for presence of more complex biology in space apart from any accidental bacteria. 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. American and Russian scientists utilized animals - mainly monkeys, chimps and dogs - in order to test each country’s ability to launch a living organism into

Apollo 11 was the spaceflight which landed the first humans, Neil Armstrong and Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin, Jr, on Earth’s Moon on July 20, 1969, at 20:17:39 UTC. The United States mission is considered the major accomplishment in the history of space exploration. Launched from the Kennedy Space Center Launch Complex 39 in Merritt Island, Florida on July 16, Apollo 11 was the fifth manned mission, and the third lunar mission, of NASA’s Apollo program. The crew consisted of Armstrong as Commander and Aldrin as Lunar Module Pilot, with Command Module Pilot. Armstrong and Aldrin landed in the Sea of Tranquillity and became the first humans to walk on the Moon on July 21. Their Lunar Module, Eagle, spent 21 hours 31 minutes on the lunar surface, while Collins remained in orbit in the Command/Service Module, Columbia. The three astronauts returned to Earth on July 24, landing in the Pacific Ocean. They brought back 47.5 pounds (21.5 kg) of lunar rocks. Apollo 11 fulfilled U.S. President John F. Kennedy’s goal of reaching the Moon before the Soviet Union by the end of the 1960s, which he had expressed during a 1961

The Group is seeking to improve the speed with which we are contractually able to recover input costs, by bringing the UK contract structures, typically with six month price-review periods, in line with our continental European operations which operate on a three month price-review structure. We also seek to differentiate our packaging through a focus on adding value to our customers’ supply chains by focusing on service, quality and innovation. A description of our exposure to energy costs specifically is given later.

In 2010/11 the Group spent c. £925 million on purchasing paper, plastics and other raw materials. The Group also spent c. £126 million on energy. These costs have increased substantially over the prior year, and to date the Group has largely recovered these costs in pricing, typically with the usual three to six month delay depending on the business. However, in the event that, due to competitor behaviour or other factors, DS Smith were unable to recover further price increases on a similar time-scale.

R-Flute® has helped to achieve consumer impact and significant savings in cost and carbon for Kellogg’s Nutri-Grain range. A previous pack was reported to look ‘washed out’. The new R-Flute® pack stands out on the shelf, and is easy to find back-of-store, helping to drive on- shelf availability. The change to R-Flute® means that Kellogg’s receives 911 fewer pallets of inbound packaging, equating to a massive 24 full loads per year.

arlisle United operates through the limited company Carlisle United Association Football Club (1921) Ltd which is currently owned by Andrew Jenkins, Steven Pattison and John Nixon, Jenkins the owner of local business Pioneer Foods while Pattison owns local Hardware company Carlisle Glass – Longhorn. Jenkins has been involved with Carlisle United for over forty years and has served in various roles within the backroom during previous ownership. Pattison a life long fan still has his season ticket with the fans and sits with them as often as his Club commitments allow. John Nixon is former MD of Pirelli Tyres. Jenkins became the majority shareholder ahead of John Nixon and Steven Pattison, through the transfer of shares from former owner David Allen. Both Pattison and Nixon declined to take any shares from David Allen Allen the owner of a local accountancy agency left the board acrimoniously in 2009 when he made public a feud with fellow owners on the board stating “Unfortunately, a lot of people perceive elements within Brunton Park’s hierarchy as an old boys’ club that is not receptive of change. I am unhappy being associated with that as it is not my style either person or professionally.” Since Allen left the club has gone from strength to strength having two Wembley finals under their belt including winning the JPT in April of 2011 also posting healthy profits. Carlisle United have also just released plans to move to a modern all seater stadium. In 1992 prop developer Michael Knighton bought the club which was then playing in Division Four, the lowest tier of the Football League. Then began a ten year ownership in which

much of the talk around the club concerned Knighton himself. At one point he was even featured in the local paper claiming to have seen a UFO, local paper the News and Star ran the story with the headline: ‘Knighton: Aliens Spoke To Me’. In 1997 Knighton dismissed popular manager Mervyn Day, who had won promotion to the Second Division and the Football League Trophy earlier that year. Knighton placed himself in charge of the club’s management with the uncredited help of Dave Wilkes and John Halpin. The club was relegated to the English fourth tier that season and only narrowly avoided losie Football League status thanks to a last minute goal by goalkeeper Jimmy Glass in 1999. Knighton became increase unpopular with the fans in the following years and the supporters’ ‘United Trust’ was formed to push for better ownership, this came in the form of John Courtenay. The main area of Carlisle support can be found within and around Carlisle itself and, due to being the only professional football club for a long distance, it attracts fans from across the county of Cumbria, South West Scotland and parts of West Northumberland. The club’s supporters are known as the Blue Army. The most vocal supporters on match days reside in Brunton Park’s Warwick Road End, known affectionately to the fans as ‘The Warwick. In addition to generic English football chants Carlisle’s supporters sing Proud to be a Cumbrian, Super Carlisle from the North and an adapted version of Peggy March’s I Will Follow Him. Carlisle United’s famous fans are Blue Peter presenter Helen Skelton ex-Emmerdale star Roxanne Pallet and TV presenter Fearne Cotton.

he University is based upon the findings of a report by Sir Martin Harris. This plan envisaged a university based upon a “distributed learning network”. This network is based upon the idea that teach will take place both at the University’s main campuses, and at colleges of further education around the county. This will solve problems of access for remote areas that did not previously have direct access to higher education. The headquarters of the Uni are in Carlisle. Its other major campuses are at Ambleside, Lancaster (formerly St Martin’s College) and Energus in Lilyhall. The University also has sites in London and Penrith (formerly University of Central Lancashire in Cumbria). Furness College in Barrow-in-Furness has also joined forces with the university as part of the new build at the college is owned by the University of Cumbria. The University of Cumbria was formed by the merger of St Martin’s College, Lancaster, the Cumbria Institute of the Arts (CIA)- formerly Cumbria College of Art & Design (CCAD) - and the Cumbrian campuses of the University of Central Lancashire on 1 August 2012. These institutions formerly ran degree programmes accredited by Lancaster University and the UCLAN.

he university’s arts shop situated at the Brampton Road campus has been saved after immense student pressure. Student pressure saved the shop from closure. Last semester the shop had been threatened with closure after continuously losing money, and made staff members Diane Comrie and Susan Waugh redundant. It was announced on December 7 that the shop will now run with just one staff member, former manager Ann Nugent, with reduced opening hours. Ann said: “It’s a relief that the shop is still able to provide a service. Students are extremely happy and it is being used.” Opening hours will now be from 9:30 – 4:30 Monday, Tuesday and Thursday, then just 9:30 – 12:30 Wednesday and Friday. The shop is currently under the control of the Facilities Management team, but will be soon run by Faculty of the Arts. The switch is seen as making the shop more feasible as it can offer more course specific products. However, it is still not certain where the shop will be located in the future. Currently the shop is in the graphics department, where students have to walk through a working area to get to it. There are plans for a move but details of a date or location are undecided. Ann added: “I want a bigger space; you cannot move in here,

we need better access as the shop was only here on a temporary measure.” The Students’ Union ran consultation meetings and information sessions with students and the university board in attempts to save what was seen as a vital service. They also organised a student survey on the potential closing of the shop. Ben Wohl, Communications co-ordinator said: “We are pleased the university took the consultation process seriously. They listened to what the students said and made a decision on that.” Last semester the shop had been threatened with closure after continuously losing money, and made staff members Diane Comrie and Susan Waugh redundant.

RHOD GILBERT AT THE SANDS CENTRE This will be his first of 59 dates elsh comedian and TV star Rhod Gilbert has chosen Carlisle to launch his latest live show. He will appear at the Sands Centre on Good Friday, April 6, the first of 59 dates in what looks certain to be a sell-out tour. His observational rants on life’s trials, such as buying a duvet or losing luggage on a flight, have made him one of the hottest properties in stand-up. The publicity for the new show, however, promises a “more mellow” Rhod Gilbert. Tickets for Rhod Gilbert, The Man With The Flaming Battenberg Tattoo, went on sale at 9am yesterday priced £25. The Sands Centre says they are selling briskly. Tom Rice, area manager for Carlisle Leisure which runs the Sands Centre, said: “To get Rhod Gilbert solidifies The Sands as a major venue on the comedy circuit.” “We are always pleased to have high-profile comedians coming and you can’t get much better than Rhod Gilbert.” His last tour in 2010, Rhod Gilbert And The Cat That Looked Like Nicholas Lyndhurst, twice sold out the 1,400-capacity Sands. A second date was added in November because of

the strong demand. Since then, Rhod Gilbert has become even better known thanks to numerous TV appearances. He has performed twice on Live at the Apollo, headlined Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow and hosted Have I Got News For You and Never Mind The Buzzcocks. He has appeared on The royal variety performance and made regular guest appearances on panel shows Eight out of 10 Cats and Would I lie to you? Last year the BBC invited him to host his own series for BBC One, Ask Rhod Gilbert.

Jason Byrne: Peoples Puppeteer Sand Centre, Carlisle

Of Mice and Men The Brickyard, Carlisle

After a huge year that’s seen Uber partying with some of the biggest names in electronic music, next month sees the Carlisle based promoters celebrate their fifth birthday with a typically stonking line-up. With the likes of Calvin Harris, Annie Mac, Pete Tong, Derrick Carter, Erol Alkan, Josh Wink, Mark Knight, Jag Skills, Yousef, Kissy and many many more taking to the decks for Uber over the past 12 months.

The band’s first line-up consisted of Blaine Harrison on drums, William Rees on guitar and Henry Harrison (Blaine’s father) on bass. Henry became a second guitarist in the band and they were joined by Kai Fish on bass and Tamara Pearce-Higgins on the organ. Kai joined the band after suggestions that they needed a bassist (he played the cello originally). Their original name was The Misery Jets, which was taken.

Byrne currently presents a mid-morning radio show on Phantom FM as well as a comedy panel show called The Byrne Ultimatum on RTE Two. Many of his live routines involve audience participation, and the subsequent humiliation of those audience members by placing them in embarrassing and oppressive situations. In August 2008, he made his twelfth Edinburgh Fringe Festival appearance and is a regular.

Of Mice & Men was founded by Austin Carlile, the original vocalist of Attack Attack!, and bassist Jaxin Hall, an import from Auckland, New Zealand during 2009 in Columbus, Ohio.[1] The two recorded their demo “Seven Thousand Miles for What?” with the band Though She Wrote at Paper Tiger Studios in Columbus. Carlile and Hall searched for other members for about a month. They came across Valentino Arteaga.

40 foot flaming heart and 2,000 fireworks will go up in smoke tonight as Carlisle’s 23rd annual fireshow gets underway. Gill Burns, community events manager, at the fireshow site. Preparations have been under way all week to ensure that the event in Bitts Park goes with a bang. Pallets have been laid to create the bonfire and the centrepiece. a 40ft flaming heart, is ready to be burnt. More than 35,000 people are expected to turn up to enjoy the fireworks display – which is expected to last for more than an hour.

The event is being hosted by ITV Tyne Tees and Border weather presenter Philippa Tomson and panto star Billy Walker, who is playing Captain Cockle in Dick Whittington and the Pirate Adventure at the Sands Centre. Mike Mitchelson, leader of Carlisle City Council, said: “Carlisle fireshow is unequalled in the north and is a great example of a free community event ideal for all family to enjoy.“To make the most of it, the advice is simple: dress warmly, arrive early, leave your fireworks and pets at home – and enjoy one of the greatest free shows you’re ever likely to see, anywhere in the country. “In the past we had thousands of requests and have even been asked to read out some marriage proposals! As we have a Love Carlisle theme this year maybe there will be even more this time round.” Cumbria Fire and Rescue Service is encouraging people to go along to organised events. County councillor Gary Strong said: “Public firework displays that are correctly organised are by far the safest way to enjoy bonfire night – and they don’t come much more spectacular than the Carlisle fireshow.”

The University’s art shop situated at Brampton Road campus is on the verge of closing due to financial difficulties.

he band are originally from Telford and Shrewsbury, and formed while study at New College Telford. After New College the band moved to Woodhouse in Leeds where the band started to develop its sound.They sold out venues in London and Leeds on their first headline tour. Follow their successful support slots for LCD Soundsystem, the group earned the Live Band of the Year trophy at the Leeds Music Awards. Work on their debut album, Raise the Alarm, was completed in May 2006 and was released on August 28, 2006. They appeared on the 2006 spring/summer European festival circuit. November saw the band play even more gigs, at increasingly large venues throughout the UK, including cities like Glasgow, Preston, Barnsley and London with the addition of other concerts. Most notably they played the Other Stage at the Glastonbury Festival in June and played a headline set on the future stage at T in the Park in July and performed at the Leeds/Reading Festival in August 2007, playing on the NME stage. The band headlined the Strathclyde University’s 2007 freshers week. In November 2008, after several months of non-activity, the band posted several new demos on their MySpace page titled ‘Malibu’, ‘Epic’, ‘Darktime’, ‘Animals’ and ‘An Introduction’. It was stated by the band that none of these songs would make their second album.

They recorded a song with FC Kahuna named “From The City To The Sea” which was made public and free for download in February 2009. It was released as a free download because it differed too much from the other songs to make it on the album. The song takes a sample from the Aphex Twin track Windowlicker. On 16 April 2009, the band put up low-resolution versions of five tracks from their new album on their MySpace account; “In Your Arms”, “Coming to Save You”, “Spell It Out”, “Your Friends” and “Any Minute Now”. The band performed at various festivals over the summer including ‘V’ festival and a number of smaller, more local festivals include Bathgate Live and Bingley. On 3 Nov 2009 TSU released a 5 Track EP called ‘Everything, Right Now’. The EP features 2 previously unheard tracks, 2 reworked demo’s that were on their Myspace in November 2008 (Darktime, now renamed Dark Days, and Animals), and the track “Coming to Save You” which was to be on their second album. The band finally released the follow-up to Raise The Alarm on 1 February 2010 named Nobody’s Coming to Save You released on City Rockers/EMI. The album reached #86 on the UK album chart following its release. To coincide with the release of the album, TSU embarked on a 3 week tour of the UK playing at venues such as Glasgow ABC,

A N O T H E R U P

Manchester Ritz, Koko (Camden) and finishing with a sold out homecoming gig. The band released ‘We’ve Always Been Your Friends’ as a standalone download online single on February 15, followed by the next single released from ‘Nobody’s Coming to Save You’, ‘Spell It Out’, which was released as part of a digital download along with remixes of the first two singles and an official release of the much aired demo, ‘Fall In Line’. The package was released on 17 May. The video is centered about a space chase to defeat a giant robot and is hugely influenced by 80’s computer graphics. TSU went on to sub-headline the Festival Republic tent at the Reading & Leeds festivals over the August Bank Holiday weekend in 2010. I am sad and happy to announce that I am leaving The Sunshine Underground. Sad because I’m leaving behind some of the best friends I’ve ever had, but also happy because I can now set off on a completely new adventure. There have been no fall-outs or bust ups, no artistic differences. I just feel, for me, it is just time for something new. This was not an easy decision to make and I didn’t take it lightly. I toiled for a long time over this and in the end the conclusion was clear. Ever since our humble beginnings we have achieved a huge amount. Highlights have been releasing two great albums and an E.P, Japan, SxSW, Mexico and Glastonbury.

CARLISLE UTD WIN TO PUSH PLAY OFF HOPES

Katie Swann BA (Hons) Journalism

ikael Blomkvist (Daniel Craig), co-owner of Swedish “Millennium” magazine, has just lost a libel case brought against him by crooked business man Hans-Erik Wennerström. Meanwhile, Lisbeth Salander (Rooney Mara), a research and computer hacker, has compiled an extensive background check on Blomkvist for a job that Swedish magnate, Henrik Vanger (Christopher Plummer) wants him to perform. In exchange for damning information about Wennerström, Blomkvist agrees to investigate the disappearance and possible murder of Henrik’s grandniece, Harriet, 40 years ago. While hunting for clues, Blomkvist uncovers a notebook filled with information that may help explain Harriet’s. Salander, who is under state legal guardianship due to diagnosed mental incompetency, is appointed a new guardian, lawyer Nils Bjurman (Yorick van Wageni). He takes control of Salander’s finances and withholds her money for sexual ‘favors’ which eventually leads to rape. In order to regain control of her life, she stuns him with a taser, blackmails him, and marks him as a rapist with a tattoo on his chest and stomach. Blomkvist hires Salander to further investigate the notebook’s content, and she uncovers a connection to a series of murders that occurred from the late 1940s to the mid 1960s. During further investigation, Salander and Blomkvist become lovers. Henrik’s brother Harald (Per Myrberg) identifies Martin, Harriet’s brother (Stellan Skarsgård), as a possible suspect.
