SPACE EXPLORATION
Space Exploration and space travel has now been a topic where people have been arguing, if it is a waste of money.
Firstly, Space Exploration is not a waste of money, because it could benefit the young students. The exploration of space has been put to good use, inspiring them. Space exploration is also another idea for what they would like to do when they grow up.
Another reason why space exploration is not a waste of money is because there are many people who would like to know what is out there, in their universe. If it were not for the space explorers, would we have not known that there is no gravity out in space and would we be able to see how to moon looks? Space exploration has also helped us in many other ways, such as being able to see our house from all the way out in space, because of the satellites.
On the other hand, space explorations has used up a lot of money, which could have been used for a multiple of things. The money could have been used for the people who are having a lack of food and water or it could also have been used to build housing for the poor. With more money people could build more types of cars using batteries or solar energy, so that there wouldn’t need to burn fossil fuels increasing the greenhouse gases.
Another reason why space exploration is a waste of money is that we have not even explored our sea beds and the money could also be used for materials needed in Antarctica. People are going all the way out into space; to explore what is out there when in fact they have not even explored what is at the bottom of out sea. There could be unknown species of marine down there for who knows.
In conclusion, I believe that space exploration is a waste of money, all the money used to explore space when in fact we haven’t even explored our entire planet is a waste.
