Space Exploation is great and all but is it worth the cost, not just money?
Global government invested $14.6 billion in 2017 and an avereage of at least $15billion a year on space exploration.
Is that too much?
Good things about Space Exploration...
Space Exploration is great because i think we need to learn about other planets just in case we kill this one.
Also we need to be educated on it so if there is a disaster about to happen -eg:massive meteor the size of the Earth coming towards us- then we need to know so we can prevent it.
It helps us do experiments on the human body just in case we need to move planets in the future.
It helps us with something we use everyday and cant live without...
Yes if we didn't have satellites there would be no internet or phone service!
It helps us with climate change (also causing it a little) yes it really does because we can look at the Earth from space and see and test the bad parts of the Earth and that can help us back at our Space Centers across the world.
Bad things about space exploration...
On the other hand, the cost is extraordinary and is too much for something that may be damaging our O-Zone layer and could be one of the main causes of Global Warning.
Also we might not like what we find eg:we spend billions of dollars on a rocket to find Alien-life-form and find nothing and unfrortunatley leaving masses of junk in Earth's orbit.
Other nations could use it to exploit eachother like for instence "The Space Race" that caused alot of commosion between countries in seeing who would be first in Space.
Space Exploration will always have risks due to rockets blowing up costing peoples lives and alot of time and money.
So what do you think?
