Should the government spend more money for space exploration?

Asked by: Juris
  • Space exploration is a better use of money than military is.

    The government spends lots and lots of money on the military (in the billions), on getting better guns, better air forces, better weapons. It's a much better use of their money to explore what we don't know. It's part of our education, learning about things we don't know. We don't know what's out, millions of miles away. Why not reduce the military budget, just a little bit, and explore more? It wouldn't even cost as much to explore as it would to spend on military.

  • It is essential for our daily lives...

    Space exploration is very important. It promotes Science education. It is important for NASA's
    Environmental Research.It Eliminates Earth Over Population.It is essential for Natural Resources.And the last of all it Put Ourselves into Perspective. From space earth is really small. From space earth is really fragile. Sometimes I think it would be a good thing to put our place in the universe into perspective.

  • Expand beyond our limits

    We are dying , aliens are our new hope. We must conquer beyond our reach. WE MUST RISE . THIS IS OUR MANDATE OF HEAVEN . WE WILL TERMINATE ANYTHING IN OUR PATH . MURICA WILL EXPAND BEYOND OUR WALLS. WE WILL BE THE NEW DYNASTY. SAY GOODBYE TO YOUR GOD.

  • Of course we do

    We do need to invest money in space exploration because we learn a lot of exciting things about our universe. Although the world is in chaos, what will happen if an asteroid or comet might have changed it's orbit or went off course and it was heading to earth, and we did not have the technology to detect this asteroid to the technology for a laser beam to make it explode before it hits earth, which would you prefer. Of course there are many important things in the world today, and we definitely do need to solve our planet's problems, but we definitely do need to leave space for space exploration because many famous scientists made important discoveries that made the world have a paradime shift like the copernican system of our universe and galileo's telescope and his theory on the sun's dark parches which we now call sunspots. Imagine if we still thought that we were the centre of the universe and we thought the world was still flat like many people thought centuries ago. I could go on & on but what I am trying to say that we do need the government and governments around the globe to spend on space exploration as it would bring a lot of benefit to the human population

  • New technologies discovered

    So many good things have come out of exploring the universe. Satellites, cellular devices, and touch screens are just a few. As the earth runs out of resources and room, we could be getting prepared by exploring places such as Mars. Science has advanced a lot in the past century, and much of it is due to the Space Exploration Program.

  • We already have thousands of urgent matters to figure out on the earth.

    Even at this moment, lots of children are suffering disease. Some people are losing their shelters by too much rain or other natural disasters. These problems can't be solved by just a group of people. We have to solve the problems on our planet first, before we explore other planets where no living organisms are living.

  • Is the human race bent on dominating the world?

    I don't see why humans are so bent on colonising everything possible, from other continents to unoccupied lands and now the universe? Must we own all the resources that can be owned? Why can't we recede to a simple life? This just shows how greedy we are. Also, what would be the purpose of doing so? To prove our knowledge and enhance the superiority of our race? Even if space exploration is done, we would just be finding more resources to supply our endless wants of a luxurious lifestyles. I think we have taken enough from the world and we should be satiated with Earth. Let us keep the world as it is.

  • This is not good

    Many trees are being cut down and not replanted. This increases the chances of more Pollution which is very bad because children can get diseases by inhaling that polluting smoke. Also, it costs a lot. The government is spending over 1 billion(more than 1,000,000,000)every year! Finally the money should be spent on other things like on saving animals from disasters like forest fires. Also, they should spend it on poor countries like Haiti, Africa and more!

  • We already have thousands of urgent matters to solve on the earth.

    Even now, children are dying from disease. Some people are losing shelters by earthquakes, hurricanes and other natural disasters. However, these problems cannot be solved by one person, or not even by a group of people. They need the government's help. These matters can be cured and solved quite easily, if people are actually caring about them. The government first need to solve the urgent matter happening now on the earth, than first taking risks to explore outer space.

  • We already have thousands of urgent earthly matters we need to solve.

    Even at this moment, some people like us are dying from disease. Some don't have shelters, or not even family. These matters cannot be solved by a person, or not even a group of people. We need the government's help. Some of these problems can be solved simply and easily if people are caring. The government first has to solve urgent problems on the planet we are living, rather than spending money for exploring outer space where we don't even know if we can discover something or not.

  • Space exploration should be treated as a hobby

    No, I don't believe that the government should spend more money for space exploration. Space exploration is really not necessary, it is somewhat of a hobby. There is no great need to know what is in the space at this time. I think that more money should be forwarded to education and things of that sort, not in out of space.

  • Wait and see

    We must clean our home before we blast off. If w can't keep our home planet in order what makes you think we can other planets? It is human nature to want to go and explore, but over 95% of our oceans and 90% of the species on the planet haven't even been discovered.

  • Money should be invested elsewhere

    As much as I am proud to where we have reached in terms of finding out about our galaxies, as previously stated, the universe is endless and therefore money and time being spent on it will be endless. We have plenty of problems in the world we should deal with with (too many). The world at the moment is an absolute chaos and until we can resolve these problems it is best to leave space exploration to the side.
