Space exploration is important because looking at today's earth environment, we might need another planet to save our lives if our planet decides to crumble. Also, exploring more into space and our immediate surroundings might help us get a grip on EXACTLY why our ecosystem is the way it is and what we can do to help it.
If we cut money to space exploration, hundreds of thousands of people would lose their jobs, like astronauts, astrophysicists, engineers and scientists, to name a few. Also, people need astronauts to see what effect space exploration has on people. People like you.
