New Technology — Space exploration brings together a lot of smart people from many different fields and puts them to work on some very difficult problems. So you are saying that since cancer treatment is a 50 to 50 chance of working and that this is not a good enough return because people are still dying. Potential organisms to be found in space such as on Mars offer exactly the same value to the scientific community, and perhaps more, as the conditions would be far more extreme than those found on the Earth. This the great amount of money spent on space ever in human history. As far as sending humans out in deep space,no. Not all cultures have explored or even traveled widely. So, how does one profit from something like the Hubble Space Telescope? But as you can see from the above list, money spent on space exploration does not nebulously float away into the galaxy.
So to prevent such a sad end, humans have to colonize one other plant at least. Promote Science Education — The Apollo missions inspired a whole generation of kids who wanted to grow up to be astronauts, rocket scientists, and engineers. Is the cost of space adventure unjustified while poverty exists in many parts of the world? Our goal here is to create a balance, not to give up one option for another. World hunger is not caused by a lack of money or even a lack of food. And the expense of space exploration means only the richest countries can afford it, and even then only rarely.
In addition, space exploration can cause changes to the body's balance system and inner clock. Yes, such explorations makes a big hole in the pocket but let's not equate then as expense, they are investment that can unleash many resources for future generation. Even if you think you are too old for that you can help out by joining stuff like Zooniverse projects which give out data from satellites for analysis. Why do we have to send some christian missionaries over to dig them a well? They knew the risks, and they took it for the sake of knowledge. This increase in global temperature would change climates on Earth. We need space funding, it does wonders for our overall progression as our species.
Cures for disease, world hunger, exploration of space are all things that we need to survive as a species. If we have to use the money for something i would strongly approve that we use it for space exploration. This is actually your analogy? The needs of humanity should always come first. Space travel increases our knowledge and expertise in the worlds around us. The light bulb would be beneficial to human life because as most know simply that humans can not live with out light.
Those buildings, therefore, also stand as monuments to the builders. Therefor, we need to melt the insides of mars or somehow create an artificial geomagnetic field. Why can't they hunt their own game or raise their own livestock? Is it hype, or is it history? Where did we come from? Our solar system alone has many possibilities. Compared to other areas of government spending e. Unfortunately, these ninjas can only survive in Neptune's atmosphere.
Regular intake in moderate dosage does improve the bodily function. What excites me, what interests me, is the idea that we are not alone in the universe. No, space exploration should be first and foremost. The problem with this whole argument is money. Elon Musk, Neil Armstrong, and everyone else would definitely agree.
Just as man could help but wonder if the Earth was really flat, or if there was anything outside the 'Known World'. Issues like that ad nauseum. Future human Mars missions will almost certainly involve multiple space agencies to spread the cost among several nations. These items are simply a luxury we cannot afford and we do not need them. Asteroids hits the rocket everyone gets slammed to one side of the rocket including the pilot. There's nothing we can do about it anyway!!!! Earth does need to be fully explored.
Well then sell your computer. We would be a much more healthy planet and society. Besides, if we're not carefull, we're going to be emigrating to one of those planets out there sooner than we think. However, I'm having a hard time backing up the importance of space exploration to a good friend. The more they can amortize the costs, the less they need to charge customers. If we would stop valuing and investing in false realities.
Also in my opinion it takes a one sided mind to see only the cons or only the pros. In India and several developing countries there is a big shortage of food and water which leads to starvation, malnutrition in kids and deaths. Remove that component and you push humanity backwards 100+ years. . Then every group of civilised people would have to grow in their own shell of ignorance. Finding the unknown is a basic instinct for modern human beings. The mark of human civilization is its ability to explore space and learn more about its surroundings.
Aside from the expenses, there are no consequences for exploring space. Each has a cost associated with it, but with each also comes a smidgeon of knowledge we can add to the encyclopedia of the human race. Much more then seven I can bet you, but I am not saying their death was pointless and for waste. And what about over coming poverty? And what about helping the needy and building more hospitals? For example, they learned to embrace deferred gratification, not just on an individual level, where it is a crucial element of maturity, but on a societal level, where it is equally vital. Sergei Korolev and the team that launched Sputnik were not tasked by their government to be the first to launch an artificial satellite; they had to fight for the honor and the resources to do it. Better look after this one first.
