Should We Stick To Exploring Earth?

Space Featured Image 4

In this selection, I will be discussing both reasons why we should and shouldn't stay to exploring Earth.

We Should Because...

  • Over 90% of our own oceans have not been discovered, and 99% of our oceans floors have not been discovered either.Aproxamately 65% of Earth as a whole - including dry land- is undiscovered too!We should save the money and explore the land we live on!
  • It costs more than 16 billion pounds per year to explore space! It cost around 10000 to 40000 per day to operate an ocean exploration, if we spend the money we spend on space on the ocean, we would be able to use more than a year exploring.

We Shouldn't Because...

  • Exploring space will give more knowlegde about Earth and the space that helps our planet live, we should know about this beacause we can understand more and have a bigger view on life.
  • We have already spent so much money and explored so much of space, some people have even dedicated their lives on it! So why should we just take that away from them?

Based on these, it can be pretty had to make a decision, but I have come to a conlusion that we should explore space, but whilst doing that, explore Erath aswell. This way, we are getting even more knowlegde about life as possible.

    Hi entertaining_strawberry. We already have posts on whether we should explore space or stick to exploring Earth. Could you copy and paste this as a comment on this one: https://burnetnewsclub.com/issues/space-exploration/the-discussion/space-exploration-interesting-but-at-what-cost/

    Personally I disagree.
    I think we should stick to exploring earth save the money and use it on the more important crises's and exploring our world like you said but your reasoning was amazing for both sides of the story. Well done!!!

    I think we should explore both because if we don’t start to help the earth then climate change will start to get worse. Also we should explore space because you never no what could happen in space it could be good or bad and you never no with earth and space.

    I also thought that it would be better sticking to earth but now I think we should mainly stick to earth but still explore space but just limit the amount of money we use on space because I think there are more important things on Earth.

    This made me think for some time because of the things in space we need to know but I think staying to earth would be the key we still need 90% of our oceans to explore and we can find new species here on Earth but in space we wont find anything probably there is a 0.00000000001% chance any civilised life would roam in space.

    I think that there should be an equal measure of how much money is used for exploring space and earth, and have a little money for more important things . Like the NHS and school . If we have a money plan like this we can discover space and earth at the same time . But this can only happen if there are less space expeditions and they are longer this should be less expensive. But we should try to explore earth more since we might discover something that could change the world.

    I agree with this a lot. Our earths oceans have barely been discovered so why should we start with other planets. Although, our earth has already started dying so if we were to leave this planet and move on to another we would have to see if the other planets are suitable for humans or not. So therefore,I think that we should continue exploring our solar system

    Although, I think that we should continue exploring space just in case we need to move planets.

    I believe that we should stay on earth because if we are looking for the positives and negatives of other planets from the causing of climate change then why can't we just sty back on earth and just fix attempt to fix climate change. It's not the right thing to do go of to search for another planet to live on because of climate change when we can live here. We could also make more electric cars for people for the situation of climate change but the downside of that is they are so quiet nobody can hear them so any little children could walk out into the road without hearing them.
