Without modern transportation systems, governance and economic opportunities would have expanded much more slowly across our great land. You feel guilty because you live better? Imagine now, that other powerful countries have satellites to spy on us and can position weapons directly above our country, dont you think it would be a good idea to be abloe to stave that off. Aside from the expenses, there are no consequences for exploring space. Some people claim going into space will help us heal the Earth. I can keep naming example after example after example…studing and exploring the stars and other planets will always make life better here on earth. When this day comes, all the coal, oil, water, soil, nutrients etc etc.
After all, if we continue to blunder our way across the earth and do actually find a way of being able to live on Mars we will only balls that up too! It isn't even guaranteed that they will discover life or find anything useful to us. The same would apply to…well, the list is just too long and life is too short. Think about this list of everyday products. So that means we should give up? Is space exploration worth the cost? Soon enough, a ticket to space will be the same as a plane ticket. We people in your country we are like family and you have to help family. Well then sell your computer. Orion absolutely rocks my socks! Satellites were some of the first venturers into space and are another critical part of our society.
Then every group of civilised people would have to grow in their own shell of ignorance. Although the cost is not high relative to other government expenditure, it is still an additional cost that the taxpayer is burdened with. There are so many more things I can name at this time, but here are just a few as I must go eat for now. What I mean is, asteroid mining. Why can't they hunt their own game or raise their own livestock? Astronauts are obviously human and sending them into space is a huge risk to their welfare. Although humans are living longer and Britain currently having an ageing population, to venture out of the Milky way solar system of which earth is a part of it is too far for the human and they would die before they had even ventured out of the solar system or gathered any useful information. But, secondly, Earth has an out-of-control population problem that sooner or later will have to be dealt with.
So I say to those individuals who believe that space exploration is a waste of money you see that device you are holding and the thing called the internet that is allowing you to look this up, or duct tape, flash lights and so on. The Contract Air Mail Act of 1925 the Kelly Act authorized the postmaster general to contract for domestic airmail service with commercial air carriers. Risks: Known and Unknown There is always the problem of unforeseen risk with space exploration. They foreshadow an understanding of space that humans seem very far from. Imagine a solar farm, capable of harvesting the solar winds; this translates to an unlimited supply of energy for not just the United States, but the entire world! Until we come up with a better, less resource hogging means to get lift off, we're just shooting ourselves in the foot. What price to pay for knowing that in the future, humanity can be saved because there are other planets out there capable of sustaining life? And you can multiply that by the number of stars in the universe.
Since the discovery of space travel, there have been more than 15 known fatalities all resulting in death for all crew members. And that's an if when it comes to scientists being perfect human beings. In addition, space exploration can cause changes to the body's balance system and inner clock. So your suggesting that governments spend doubly-doubly-doubly-triply-quadruply the amount they spend on those areas on space travel. Why can't they dig their own well? In the old west, the hub of activity in frontier towns really was the saloon.
But back zen vwe were known as the Great Soviet Union. Space exploration is a waste of money, but the civilizations who are stupid enough to ignore this and leave their domain will one day be the ones descending from the sky and owning the entire galaxy, plus Earth will run out of stuff and we will need to take it from asteroids. Good intentions are not enough in the face of greed and hate which have never stopped being in control of our destiny. We could have no hunger and little disease with more international cooperation and less corruption. Space exploration needs focus and funding, it is representative of our future, and will secure it. Space is easier by comparison.
The printing press would have remained in Germany unless some other nation happened to stumble on the same process. Yuri Gagarin became the first human to orbit Earth in Vostok 1. Yes, there is the contribution to the scientific community but what have we found in space that we didn't already know? Sadly it blew up, but we have to move on with life. In addition, astronauts may experience some negative physical effects of space exploration. Protein interactions is a vast field of study, and it'll be a while before we can perfect observations in it to the quality we can get in a traditional hard science like physics. And he's kinda right, if we're thinking long term we need a better understanding of physics to come up with faster and cheaper methods of interplanetary or even interstellar travel. With all this being said, it can be seen that space exploration is a great idea with many perks including financial gains but more importantly, education gains with more open-mindedness about the universe around us.
For example: Asteroids have copious amounts of metals that are rare and expensive on earth such as platinum, titanium and gems. Space exploration and colonization of the Moon and Mars are an insurance policy for humanity and all of our achievements. Promote Science Education — The Apollo missions inspired a whole generation of kids who wanted to grow up to be astronauts, rocket scientists, and engineers. One could present many arguments, from jobs and education to technology development and national security, for undertaking a robust space program. This is the impulse behind cathedrals and pyramids, art galleries and museums. Earth does need to be fully explored. Scientific knowledge has intrinsic worth.
I believe our long term survival depends on us moving off this planet. Unfortunately, these ninjas can only survive in Neptune's atmosphere. Activate your favorite search engine and start exploring. Even if earth is not destroyed by asteroids, we seem to be doing a pretty good job of it anyway with wars and industrial pollution. There are far more valuable scientific endeavours to fund, such as the exploration of our own planet. We would not have most of the problems of today if our parents taught us better than to steal and hurt others, so let's teach the next generation so that they can explore space when they are well grounded.
Inspiration — The Apollo missions inspired an entire generation of students to pursue math and science careers. It was on this journey that Mitchell also discovered and named the Balonne, Culgoa, Barcoo and Belyando rivers, which mostly flowed south-west into the Darling. So many accidents and problems happened in the space shuttles such as explosions, pieces falling off, and missing the gravity on Earth. However, space travel is not nearly as commonplace as car or airplane travel, which also release harmful substances into the atmosphere. Another point is that our own planets isnt even fully explored yet. Man lived for thousands of years off of the land and many dumb animals still manage to pull it off. The point is, space exploration is extremely expensive.
