Do we need to put more focus on providing funding for space exploration?

  • We just need to

    Without going into space and exploring it more, we aren't going to find other forms of life, we won't be able to find a new planet for us if this one fails, and we won't be able to see past our own reflection in the wall of satellites that is forming around the globe. We need to escape this choking prison of a home before we completely destroy it and kill everyone on the planet.

  • I say yes

    I think we should because it can save the human race when earth explodes.:D lol lol lol lool lol lol lo lol lol lool lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol lol

  • Lol cuts it should

    Cus lolcats go meow and dat will pollute dem earth and we will die and the lolcats will die too and we will be sad but we can't be sad cus we are dead and the lolcats will be sad but the lolcats will be dead so we need to find a new planet with space exploration

    Persuasive Essay –
    As you may or may not know, millions of money has already been put into space race, in the discovery to find ‘Earth like planets’. The positive effects are endless just like the far reaches of intricate space. As we know space has already bought some amazing discoveries. Could there be more to find?
    So, what does lie for us once we begin to explore deep space, and, could we find intelligent life? Well, before all of that we have to first think of the positive effects it has already had, to start, we have over 3000 satellites orbiting Earth, many of which are used for government operations but they are also connecting us to the rest of the world, millions at least receive text messages every day. And that would not be possible if these satellites were put into space, but that is not all satellites have done. They have also improved our mapping skills, we occasionally use Google maps to get directions and even look at what your house looks like from space. It doesn’t end there cars are beginning to use them as a safety feature to locate where you are in case you have been in an accident. Also, what else lies out there element-wise? We have made some amazing discoveries such as carbon/graphite, which has made amazing inventions such as carbon fibre, one of the strongest and lightest materials made, it is being used in cars, bikes, sports equipment, planes and space craft and musical instruments. What else could lie out the we have already discovered what we can on Earth and space exploration could lead us to something amazing, it could find us our next source of energy. This would not only make a difference to a country or content but the whole of mankind. The vast amount of knowledge we could obtain would extraordinary. The technology which would be into our everyday things such as our phones and cameras, Imagine these being able to last weeks or evens months with only one charge. Imagine being able to speak to someone for anywhere on Earth from Antarctica to the far reaches of Greenland. But more importantly we are destroying this planet day by day, and eventually we will have to leave and set home for a different planet and what if mankind was destroyed because of our silly little ways? We are Earth's disease and we are dying because of it and the only way forward as I said it space exploration to find another home.

  • We should because it is important for all of us

    First off I believe if we put our effort into space exploration the potential discoveries we can make could benefit not just our nation but mankind. I find it amazing how man can be at constant war with each over territory, resources etc. when we have no idea what really is out their. We are merely a speck in existence. Think of the resources we could find, because earth isn't going to last forever. Think of the knowledge we could obtain. We don't know everything there is to know about science to judge what is possible. Think of the moment of when an astronaut takes their first step on a planet occupied by life other than our own. Televised for the world to watch and share that moment. The possibilities are endless.

  • We should not just focus on funding space exploration, but devoting more resources to it entirely!

    We know there are other planets out there that are nearly Earth-like in every way. There should be more effort into developing the technology required to travel longer distances with space craft to enhance our knowledge of these planets, what I hope for in the long run, is that we do eventually have contact with an Alien species, be it a small insect, or a species that is just like us.

  • I believe if mankind pursued space exploration more, then we all might put aside petty differences. Such as the things that divide us the most.

    The human race needs something more than just another social networking site, more than just another like on our page. We need a common goal that is amazingly rewarding. A goal that brings us together, to celebrate our achievements as a whole and not individually. To have a better understanding of ourselves and not fight, lie. Cheat or kill over the things we don't even understand.

  • Definitely We should.

    This is essential for the future of humanity, this planet as beautiful as it is our home, sooner or later will become even more critical than it is. Whether that be from asteroid threats, alien visitation or man's own destructive force. Earth is vulnerable, we need to venture out to give us more chance of survival. Ask the Dinosaurs

  • no we shoudnt

    i think we shouldnt fund space exploration because there is no need for exploring space if we dont live there so i dont think we shoud fundd it all. its taking away are money for exploring somewhere we dont even live. theres nothing out there but planets because there is no sign of life up there so we really shoudnt be funding it. it is taking are hard earned money.

  • No reason to go to space

    We have problems here to deal with, like trying to live sustainable lives. What will going to space do for us? Absolutely nothing! Our origins? We were born on this planet, which is where we belong, how will going to space do anything for us? And what if the earth is destroyed? Then well all die, we had a good run and the universe will continue to expand with or without us, were not important to the universe! Why do people want to make sure humans last forever? All things come to an end and some day we will too, and there’s nothing to be done about it so there’s no reason to worry, people need to learn to live in the moment and appreciate the fact that they are even alive.

  • Space exploration is important, but it isn't a priority for funding, given our economic situation.

    Space exploration is extremely expensive. And, considering the fact that many Americans are without health care, our tax dollars can be better spent on immediate concerns. Additionally, in the U.S., our infrastructure is at risk due to neglect, which occurred while space exploration was a higher priority.

  • Not right now. There are other more pressing issues.

    Apart from funding programs to monitor asteroid activity, I think the space program is largely unnecessary. The government should be concerned with economic recovery and national security. Poverty and terrorism are actual dangers. Figuring out weather or not there is life on Mars is relatively trivial at this time in history.

  • I do not think we should put any funding for space education

    How can anyone justify putting money into space education when most people on earth can't afford to pay their bills. There are jobs being cut everyday, the country is broke. Not to mention the fact that there are things in our oceans that we know nothing about!

  • Funding space exploration is a waste of money and time.

    Space exploration has no real benefits, especially if the focus is searching for alien life forms. We waste countless billions of dollars annually to collect meaningless data that results in no tangible benefits. It is a pure waste of taxpayer money and resources.

  • Providing funds for the space exploration is waste of resources.

    I totally disagree that we need to put more focus on providing funding for space exploration because I believe that there is so much left in the earth to be done rather than spending in the space exploration. There are so many social problems in the world like poverty, unemployment, medical diseases, sanitation, food and safe drinking water which is yet to be solved. So it is suggested that the people should utilize this amount for eliminating this social problem rather than funding for space exploration.

  • I do not believe that space is an important frontier for human exploration or inspiration because there are a lot of things here on earth that would provide a better use of the money.

    Space exploration is extremely expensive and many of the pursuits of space exploration do not provide a very beneficial use of the money. Searching for signs of life, signs of water, and other types of exploration and space travel intended to boost national pride are not beneficial uses of the vast amounts of money used to fund this these space trips. The money would be much better used doing research and for the development of projects on earth that directly benefit people.

  • No one would love to spend more money than I but

    The money just isn't there. Our space program has fallen off a sharp cliff and I would love to make us #1 again but as of now, as off right now anyway every national, state, county and city budget is drowning in an ocean of red ink. Lets right the ship of state first b4 building more space ships. But lets do it. Because I do want to go back to the stars b4 I'm 90.

  • Why fund in space exploration with no guarantee of finding another safe planet like earth at the cost of earth?

    I totally disagree with the funding of space exploration whilst millions of people are starving and there are so many disease that science can't even cure yet. What are we going to do in Mars? There is no fertile planet like our beautiful earth within our reach. We have earth beneath our feet. Let’s take care of it and repair the damage we have done by growing more greens and stop adding pollution. Let’s wipe the religious divide and treat each other the same regardless of their heritage and religion. God would want that I am sure.
