A good example of a thesis statement: "NASA's Apollo Project began the exploration of the moon and brought the idea of space to life."
This is a good thesis statement because it follows all the requirements. It is not stated as a question and is found at the end of the first paragraph of my research paper. It is only one sentence long, which is a good length, and it is also a general statement the could possibly be used in another person's essay about space travel. Also, it is the most important topic of my paper about the Apollo Project. I go on to explain what happened in each of the Apollo missions but the overall, the paper is about the how NASA was able to accomplish John F. Kennedy's dream of making America the first nation to successfully have a man walk on the moon.
However, John F. Kennedy, the thirty-fifth President of the United States of America, shocked the world in May of 1961 when he proclaimed, "I believe this nation should commit itself to achieve the goal, before this decade is out, of landing a man on the moon and returning him safely to Earth" ("Apollo 11").
The works cited page is a necessary element of any paper that requires research. The page must be found at the end and separated from the rest of the essay. According to the rules of MLA, it is to be in alphabetical order and double spaced. Each line after the initial line of an individual citation should have a hanging indent.
