Pros and cons of space exploration.

Hi everyone again! I would like to share my opinion about the pros and cons of space exploration!

Cons

You would either suffocate or have super cancer.

In fictional shows, humans generally have no trouble roaming on planets other than Earth in nothing other than suspenders and unitards- not very suitable for low oxygen levels!- This makes for more exciting phaser battles, but in reality, even if we reach the stage of colonizing the galaxy and Moving from one planet to the next, we're not exactly going to be dressed for comfort. The atmosphere on Earth at sea level contains 20.9 per cent oxygen. By shocking coincidence, the ideal amount of oxygen in the atmosphere for human survival is also around 20.9 per cent. Any less, and we start having problems.

It can leave long-term damages

If we were to settle in Mars, wouldn't the days in a space ship affect us? If you are weightless for a long period of time can damage the circulatory system, which basically helps you be alive. These will slow down as well as this change, your immune system will alter and you may be diagnosed with eye disorders! As on 12 April 2019, NASA reported results, from the "Astronaut Twin Study", where one of the twins spent a year in space on the ISS; the other stayed on Earth. Which resulted in having several long-lasting changes, including those related to differences in DNA and more! However, as interesting and exciting this may be, staying for a prolonged time in space is dangerous and can kill you.

Our current information is well out-of-date.

On February 22, 2017, NASA announced that it had found seven planets the size of Earth all-in-one solar system. Three of them were in the 'Goldilocks Zone', which means they are at a convenient distance from their star that is not too much of one thing (e.g. not too hot, not too cold). This is called the Trapis-group 1 which is about 235 trillion miles away from us! The problem is that this planetary system is 40 light-years away from us. That means the information that we can look now took forty years to get! There have been many changes in your life in just the past 5 years, and then try to apply that concept to a planetary scale, which is basically the same. When we start exploring space, we must take into account that this delay is here; we don’t end up with a disastrous problem in our hands!

Space exploration creates a lot of trash around our planet.

There I more than 500,000 objects of trash from over 50 years of space travel. This trash is orbiting planet right now. Unless the items fall into the atmosphere and burn up, they will stay in place forever. The amount of debris we have surrounding us has made space exploration much more dangerous; an impact with a ship’s hull could have dangerous results. We will need to be precautious as there are generations of astronauts to come. Here is a more detailed video about the discussion:

Pros

Space exploration provides us access to new raw materials.

When we began to send satellites into space, it gave us access to discover new materials on earth than we could access to make our lives more convenient. If we put this technology as an extra to the rest of our solar system, then it gives us the same good result to find minerals, metals, and even unknown materials that we can use. Though the expense of exploring space is astoundingly high, this gives us a way to balance these costs a bit. There is even the likelihood that it could become beneficial eventually if we can provide these efforts with enough capital.

Anyone can become a space explorer.

Exploring space doesn't need excessive research sources ( e.g. space stations, intergalactic travel) A telescope can look into the sky, then you can welcome this element of human existence. We have taken this to another level with the Hubble Space Telescope, which has made out more than a million observations within approximately 30 years of service. Already, we have made discoveries with this technology already.

  • We have a better idea about the age of the universe (around 13.7 billion years).
  • Images of the deep universe show that there are thousands of galaxies out there.
  • It helped us to discover four of the five moons that orbit Pluto.
  • We have a better understanding of planetary seasons in our universe.
  • It works to peer into the atmospheres of alien planets so that we know what is waiting for us in our future exploration efforts.

We can see the humanity in a different way with space exploration.

Carl Sagan thought that it would be interesting if 'Voyager 1' captured a picture of Earth while it was 4 billion miles away at 30 degrees above, In that image, our planet appears as a 0.12-pixel crescent. “Look again at that dot,” wrote Sagan. “That’s here. That’s home. That’s us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer, every king and peasant… every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there – on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.” this was his point of view of what that picture meant.

So, what do you think about space now?
