Was the moon landing necesary?

Space Featured Image 2

Millions of people watche the moon landing in 1969 but was it necessary? These are my reasons if it was or was not necessary:

YES:

1.It was necessary because we explored a new area out of our atmosphere and around 16 other people have been on the moon

2. Also, thanks to the moon landing we have been thinking about going to mars and other places

NO:

1.It is not necessary because it wasted millions of $/£ and we could have used it to save endangered species

2.Aswell as this, the moon is just another place e.g. China .

So if you t that the moon landing was necessary or not than comment below.Thank you for reading this

    I think the moon landing was necessary because we have discovered a lot of new things that would have not been possible with out landing and this has developed our ideas into landing on mars , like you said. We have also learnt a lot about what is going around our planet so this information has been useful for the scientists so they can see what will happen to our planet. On the down said it is wasting a lot of money as you mentioned but it will help the children learning about space find out more about our planet and the knowledge is useful because it will develop their understandings and they might get and of working for a space company and they could achieve a lot from what they find out.

    Going into space may cost an incredible amount of money but at the same time it could be worth it. Going into space, you expect to find something new, unique and different about all the other planets out there because it helps you see life outside the blue planet and if there really is some place out there where humans can also live. In my opinion, it's never really a waste of money when you look into things about science because it can help anyone in many different ways and people on Earth may benefit from it a lot.

    i think it was necessary because if we didn't try we wouldn't of known what was out there we explored a new place of our atmosphere its better if we try or your not going to know its great we explored a new place of our atmosphere because there could of been something useful on the moon

      That's true, we would have never known! Do you know what useful things were found on the moon? Can you find out?

    No.Because if you can afford to pay more than £50000 on space exploration then you can spend more money on homeless people, because people don't have enough wealth to live. And I want people to live, live with a beater life.

    This got me thinking jolly_seahorse! I couldn't really find out an answer to decide in my brain so I will be discussing both sides of the argument.
    Why the moon landing was necessary:
    The moon landing was necessary because we are learning new things from another atmosphere that could be very interesting to find out like is there life in this other atmosphere, can we find out new discoveries to change history or could we live in this atmosphere? Space has given us a lot to fill up our knowledge and might do more. Space is an atmosphere that we need to thank and not just through it away like rubbish. We have found this amazing place but China shot a missile straight to a satellite that could cause way more space junk out there! No there are loads out there and I'm pretty sure that many people wouldn't like space-changing into Earth where we have lots of junk, climate change and much more treacherous things that could danger us! Through that all I want to say that it was necessary for the moon landing.

    Why the moon landing is not necessary:
    The moon landing is not necessary because we have way more problems down here on Earth and were just keep on exploring its new wonders in the new atmosphere. We have way more problems down here on Earth and we haven't yet a large amount of our oceans! What if something dangerous would about to happen to us, what if there is a new natural disaster forming and what if there is a creature that needs to be added to our list and could be useful? We also waste too much of our money just on space and there are many failed missions and that's really wasting money now. We need to stop exploring planets and finish concentrated on Earth and when we have learned everything there is on Earth, everyone will be free to go and explore space.
    Thank you for this question for me to think about and I hope you enjoy my opinion.

    The moon landing was definitely necessary and helpful! Without it, we would have never known what was on the dusty surface of our only moon! It was a good thing that not just 2 people went to the moon because almost every time they go, we find a new unknown fact! In conclusion, the moon landing with Neil and Buzz was very much needed and thank you to all of you (including the 2 famous men) for all of your dedication and hard work to go to the moon!

    I think it was necessary because we know about the moon.

    I think it was not necessary because the moon is just another place

    I believe that the moon landing was necessary because it helped us to invent new technologies that help us on Earth. (Like foil blankets) This means we can live a better life on Earth. Lots of money may have gone into the landing, however, it was worth it as it helped to pique our curiosity of what lies beyond Earth. That helped us to make scientific discoveries.

    I think it was necessary because thanks to this we now know how to get to space and get back to Earth safely. Secondly, we will now get more research about space thanks to us sending the space station into space and we will figure out different things that can work in space. Thirdly, now we have a small chance of going on holiday into space and getting humans to live on other planets in the nearby future.

    I think it was necessary because we found out a lot of facts about the moon and if we did not go we might of ended up in a fight with other countries.Also the reason we have the iss is because of the Apollo 11 findings and the fact that we what to find out facts about space.
