Exploring space allows people of many nationalities, races, and genders to collaborate on a greater purpose, not just to explore new worlds and construct sophisticated technologies.
Fremont, CA: Humans did not evolve with the ability to travel to space, but we do it nonetheless. Thus, different technologies have been developed to feed the economy and improve our lives on Earth. Without space missions, we wouldn't have GPS, precise weather forecasting, solar cells, or UV filters in sunglasses and cameras. So it's possible that space exploration will save your life. Here are three reasons why space exploration is important:
The burden on our natural resources continues to grow as we develop new technology on Earth. The extraction of valuable minerals has resulted in a slew of issues, including environmental devastation and human exploitation, yet space has an abundance of valuable resources.
There are many other reasons to pursue space research, but one of the most important is that we are explorers. As such, humans number in the billions because we have strived to understand more about the world around us since our first upright steps, which has allowed us to develop civilization. In addition, exploring space will enable people of many nationalities, races, and genders to collaborate on a greater purpose, not just to explore new worlds and construct sophisticated technologies.
When it comes to saving lives, space exploration has the potential to save ours. Although the solar system has settled down significantly since the early ages, there is still an unknown number of large asteroids and comets out there that could slam into the planet and ruin your day. It has happened before, each time resulting in a cataclysmic extinction. It is not a question of whether, but when another massive asteroid will strike Earth. The only way to deflect such an object is to establish a robust space program. Humanity has already passed its expiration date if we do not work toward that aim.
