Bonjour, voilà ma notion en anglais sur mythes et héros. J'ai quelques doutes pourriez-vous m'aider ?

I'm going to talk about the Notion of Myths and Heroes
First of all, I'd like to give a definition of hero.
A hero is a person who is admired for his intellectual qualities or physical qualities like courage.
A myth is the story of a hero but which stay famous in a long period.

My question is : What is a modern-day/contemporary hero? What impact do they have on our lives?

To answer this question, I will talk about the theme of Space Conquest :
In a first Part, I will talk about the Conquest of Moon during the 1960’s.
In a Second Part, I will talk about the potential Conquest of Mars in XXIe Century.

I) In the XX Century, first travel to the Moon
In 1962, John F. Kennedy made a Speech in which he said that he wants to see the first American on the Moon before the end of the sixties.
During the Cold War, the United States and Soviet Union tried to prove to the world they were the greatest and modern(est?) nation.
They promoted Space Conquest.
Yuri Gagarin is the First Human being in space (1961)
When Americans heard that Russians were going to put a man on the Moon in 1968, they decided that they should get there first.
It was a big risk because the year before, Apollo spacecraft had killed three astronauts in (a?) launchpad fire (???). But the geopolitical issue (ou concern?) were more important. Finally, Neil Armstrong, an American Astronaut, was the first Human to walk on the Moon.

II) In the XXIe century, mission on Mars

In 2013, a private organisation named “Mars One” plans to send people on (ou “to”?) Mars. The recruitment is on the web, more than 78.000 people applied to go to Mars with a video, where they say their motivation. One of them, Alyssa Carson wants to become the first Human on Mars. She is now 17 years old.
In class, we have seen her video. She says that she was 5 or 6 when she started to be interested in Space.
Moreover, obstacles :
Financial obstacles: doing reseraches, can be very expensive. For instance, going to the Moon cost 21 billion of dollars for the United States.
Going to Mars could be very dangerous. The project Mars One is a one-way ticket. Alyssa Carson say that even if she could die, she would do it because that’s her dream.

To conclude, we can say that astronauts (as Neil Armstrong or Alyssa Carson) are the perfect heroes of XXe and XXIe centuries because they symbolise :
- Bravery
- Their sense of sacrifice
- Great scientific / technological knowledge

And they do that for humanity : “That’s one small step a man, one giant leap for humanity” as said Neil Armstrong.
