The Internet made the earth more better. Now we are able to communicate faster than usual. This is very important for our lives. For example when you need a very important letter send to a friend who lives 300 kilometers away, now we could send the letter very fast using the Internet.
However, the telescpe is made for people who studies about science. I think our lives is the thing we should think about first.

I would like to mention first that many people that do amateur astronomy as a hobby, and that there are many brands of amateur telescopes to choose from. So, it is not just for people that study science.

Now, while the invention of the internet is probably one of the biggest accomplishments of our time, as it built a worldwide network of communication, the telescope is also a large accomplishment, but in a different way. When the telescope was invented, it expanded our knowledge of our own universe at the time. As each iteration of the telescope was improved upon, common information was changed in lieu of new discoveries, such as proving Copernicus' theory correct; it was the first version of an early warning system, whether it be used by an army, weather men or pirates; it was a useful tool for its time.

Our people and our planet's discovery need to be more discovered faster than the discovery of space. Now, we have many problems of the earth. First, we need more energy. Second, we should have a discovery about polar bears to let them live in the North Pole while the ice are melting. My arguments showed that why I am the pro side of this debate.
