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.

  • Space is super cool.

    Honestly space is more important than economics. Space travel is discovering all our heritage. May lead to massive discoveries someday. We went to the moon before, why will America only spend money on space travel if it has to be them vrs us and we can't lose. I'm not even American but it has one of our best chances.

  • Space exploration is awesome

    Space is a unknown part of our life just waiting to be explored by us.
    This can't happen if little Couch potatoes don't get up and start spending money on exploration than on video games and potato chips!!!! And don't even think about writing against this opinion, okay couch potatoes!!!

  • They should use the force (star wars reference)

    We need to explore as humans. Sss sss s s s s s s ss s s s ss s s s s s s s s s s ss s s s s s s s s s s s s s s ss s s s s s s s s s s s

  • For sure !!

    Space exploration is funding so many inventions on earth, so if you think we need to "clean up our earth you are wrong. World peace is probably never going to happen so why not find some place else to make a new version of Earth and REALLY help/solve our problems FOREVER!!!!!!!!

  • Of course we do

    We should keep spending money on NASA because we need to see whats out the from telescopes sati lights and more.We are eager to find more out there.We need to look for more galaxies and black holes and stuff.So many new things have been explored, not to long ago we found another planet and a new galaxy far far away (star wars reference) that has a plant like ours. LETS GO!!!!!

  • 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.

  • No we shouldent

    We need to take care of our on envorment before we go off to space and finding other life forms gg gg g g g g g g g g g g g g g g g g g g g g g g g g g g g g

  • I think it's bad

    Because the goverment is wasting a bunch of money. They are wasting over 1 billion dollars just for one trip to space and if an astronaut fail their mission or die the goverment loses all that money for nothing. The money they put into this is useless because when the astronauts go to space they don't get much information and people can die and can pass out. Plus it also pollutes the environment. So it's a bad thing
