Nowadays,governments are paying lots of money for space travelling agencies in order to explore space when we go down to earth , exactly poor areas,we find out that those people are facing difficulties because no one is taking care of them nor paying them any money.
Why would space exploration be better than talking care of poor people?
And,Why would taking care of people be more important than exploring space?
For me,taking exploring space is better because it will last for ages and be very useful for the upcoming generations. Moreover, it is very selfish from us not to prepare some important elements for those upcoming generations as our grandparents did some very important researches for us,that made our life a better one than theirs.

Exploring space is very important to man kind it provides us with new countless information about the universe and about are selfs but space exploration takes a back seat to taking care of are poor and sick. You see a man on the side of the street, its cold outside snowing with a heavy breeze hes only dressed in rags. While he suffers you want to ignore him and explore space. Why? The ultimate goal of exploring space is to find other intelligent life out there. Lets think about that for a minute what do you think gonna happen when we find this life? You probably think that we are gonna get along fine and they will give us a bunch of there technology and its just gonna be a walk in the park? um no why would they want us to be come stronger and become a threat to there civilization what we and this other civilization will do is go to war. There is no valid point to space exploration the closest solar system to us is 4.3 light years away. as humans we will never be able to go the speed of light the closest we will really ever get is about half as fast as light. so it would take 8.6 years just to get there. the hole time you would need to be moving so you need the engines on all the time can you imagine all the fuel that would take plus the food and equipment you would need. going to other solar systems is impossible for the next 300 years at least. so instead of going to space to fight a massive war with aliens lets fix up earth and all the people on it before we set are goals so high.
