International space exploration would help countries bond and get closer ties to one another, it would help us learn more about our surroundings, and it could help us learn some answers about how to prepare for extreme space weather. While people may not think about it, if one enormous asteroid is lined up with our planet and we don't know how to either change its course or blow it up, we're done.
I do think that space exploration should be an international policy. The reason for this is because it gets people excited, and brings people together. It makes children want to be a part of the future. Aside from that, we are going to need another planet on which to live soon.
I think overall that exploring space should be a priority for all of mankind, I think every national able to dedicated sufficient resources to space exploration should be doing it, we can learn so much more about the universe and our understanding of science during space exploration and that benefit everyone.
Space exploration is a luxury. Nothing more and nothing less. If you can't find something else that is of more international importance than space exploration, you have a problem. AIDS, starvation, Malaria, homelessness, PTSD, overpopulation, decline in fossil fuels; these are all incredibly more important that something like space exploration.
While space exploration is important for the advancement of mankind, I do no thin it is something that should be an international priority. I think that there are more important matters that the international community should focus on than simply space. I think that until some of the other problems are taken cared of, space exploration needs to be halted.
