Unit E – No More Earth?!
In a world with limited resources, should we use them on space exploration? Space exploration is the discovery and exploration of outer space by the means of space technology. This means that useful and resourceful discoveries are being made every time that we send up humans into space. Over the years, space exploration has expanded technology to great heights, helped create new industries, and help create a peaceful relationship between nations. Space Biology is another huge reason why we should keep space exploration. NASA laboratories lead to new technologies that improve astronaut health and monitoring, while making scientific discoveries that benefit life on Earth. Another amazing that thing that space exploration has done for people on Earth is help make huge strides in the continuing development of artificial limbs. These are for people who have lost either an arm or leg and NASA has helped develop artificial muscle for a flexible robotic arm! Now, I am going to discuss three main topics about why we should keep space exploration. They are Economic, Ethical, and Environmental. Economic
A lot of people are asking the same question about space exploration these days. Why spend the money on space, when we have so many problems needing money here on Earth? The answer is resources and technology. Space exploration has provided so many new technologies and resources to us on Earth over the years. Without space we would definitely not be as far along in technology as we are today. Space Exploration for a lot of people, provides a different perspective, or view of life. It gives people a real sense of place in our wonderful and large galaxy. Space exploration also provides an understanding of our world and can even help protect the world. NASA has a group known as the Earth Science division that helps us understand how complex and interesting our world is. NASA also studies other planets like Venus and Mars which help us...
