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.

  • Mars could be a lifeline for us all in the future

    If global warming overcomes the planet, mars could be a backup. Rockets are fueled by money. Also, there is the question of extra-terrestrial life and promoting scientific research. "There are two possible outcomes, and neither of them are comforting. Either we are alone in the universe, or we are not."

  • The Government in every country needs to put together money for the Mars One Project because the world will soon over populate.

    There are already 7.5 trillion people on earth with 15,000 births per hour. For the first crew alone to go it will be 6 billion dollars. The U.S itself has 84.9 TRILLION dollars. It would be very easy to go to mars where there is more room and a bigger planet.

  • Should the government spend more money for space exploration or the military?

    I think that the government needs to spend less on the military and use what we have now in the military. We do not need more then 10 nukes, let alone 7,000 nukes. We need to spend more money on space exploration to find out what is out there and explore the vast universe for other planets the can support life in other star systems. We need to go to other solar systems and see what is out there, not spend money on making nukes, expanding the navy or other branches of the military. We need to spend more money on space exploration.

  • We can move to other planets if the government spends more money on space.

    If the Government spends more money on space, than we can move some of the humans on this Earth to a different planet. Since Earth is over populated we can move some of the humans on this planet to another one, if the Government would spend a little money on space exploration. If they didn't, then we would all be in this planet squashed an over populated. They did just fine 6 new planets so maybe on e of them could provide the things that Earth has.

  • Should the government spend more money for space exploration?

    I think they should because our earth's resources will be soon be depleted and we should find another type resources or planet that we can use. So the government should keep some money aside for space exploration in order to save humanity an that we should all support. This may even lead us to better future

  • Space rules muhahaha

    Pace should be explored. This world is constantly being fought over, and the problems we face today could have answers out there. Evidence of life and water on other planets are a sign that we are meant to reach out. Overpopulation might not be a problem anymore. We may try to preserve our planet, but realistically, it is so damaged we might have to start over. Most governments seem to be preoccupied in what the other has, but we could find other worlds, other resources, and other lifeforms. So many advancements in technology have stemmed from space exploration projects and huge discoveries have been made. Space exploration could be a great investment for the future.

  • India should move ahead in all fields

    We are the people of India and we should help our country to move ahead . India is a developing country and it should develop fast. Spending money on space is not a waste of money but it is the best way to use money fruitfully . Till now there are many things which are yet to be discovered .

  • You get to discover more things.

    There are probably things to discover out there in space. If we slowly spend money on space exploration, we will develop new things and questions will be answered like, are there aliens in space? What is the biggest star in space? How many different solar systems are there?
    This is why I think we should spend money on space exploration

  • 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 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.

  • 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.

  • 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 is a waste of money

    Shouldn't our government spend money on humanity instead of god knows what is out there? Especially right now when the USA's government has the biggest debt in the world of 21. 8 TRILLION our government could be killing its own nation if we spend money on space exploration instead of humanity.

  • Theres better ways we can use our money

    Each year NASA gets 19. 3B in funds. With that we can send 1. 94M young adults to a university of their choice for four years or provide heath care to 1. 87M but apparently we would rather be spending it on sending something out to space and not being able to get it back.

  • Not agree in that

    Before we want to find something what ever in the space / universe / cosmos, We will have to protect and challenge the things in the earth, So we can live in a better planet. If we fall in the challenging, We will have to find something in space, But not yet

Yes because in a couple million years the earth wiil die and in the meantime if we discover a habitable planet we will be all ready.
