Клековкина Е., Манн
Comment on the following statement:
| Some people think that we should explore space and visit other planets. Other people say that space exploration is a waste of time and money. |
What is your opinion? Do you agree with this statement?
I think that we should definitely explore space and spend as much money as required. First of all, our planet can not exist forever. One day it will end and humans will have to move somewhere to continue living. Second, underground resources are finite. They will eventually end. It would be nice to have a possibility to import raw materials from other planets. It is also very interesting to meet other civilizations, if they exist.
At the same time, there are people who think that exploring space is a big waste of time and money. Every space shot casts us a lot of money. It’s better to do something on earth that can be useful here and now.
In my opinion, it is not really a good forward-looking policy. It is better to be prepared for possible troubles that can come faster than we think. Global Warming can submerge the entire earth. A comet can hit the earth. I think we should be ready for any possible danger.
In conclusion, I would like to say that it is difficult to keep doing space exploration when our economic situation is not that good, but I think that it’s worth doing. Also we should remember that our country has always been the first in this field.
