Space Exploration Essay

by Arvind Sharma

Space exploration is much too expensive and the money should be spent on more important things.

What is your opinion?

In many countries, a big proportion of expenditure is being spent on exploring the space. It is argued that this expenditure should be spent on other important things rather than on space exploration. However, in my opinion, keep other significant things in mind, space program is very crucial and important for the whole world and should be funded due to the fact that it will help to improve the communication between countries in the world and also helping to search a new alternate to live.

To begin, a reason to support funding space program is communication between all over the globe. Because business and organizations are being expanded geographically, they need a communication channel to run these businesses in an effective manner. It has become possible after launching satellites in the orbit. For instance, NASA, which is a reputed space organization has launched many satellites in the orbit, which are being used to broadcast the signals in the form of audio and video to across the globe. Moreover, the satellite television has only become possible due the space programs, and people are able to watch the global events instantly from anywhere. Thus, it can be said that by doing the space exploration, world communication has utterly been changed and for this reason it should be financially aided.

Furthermore, As global warming has become a serious concern for the whole world, scientist have started to find the alternate planet to live. Due to this fact, there are going to be conducted more space programs and eventually more money is needed to support these programs. For instance, ISRO, which is an Indian space research organization has been funded by the Indian government. As a result, they have managed to launch own satellite without help of other countries. In addition, there is a need to resolve the problem of global warming and this could only be possible if more space programs will be aided financially. Thus, it has been important for every country to give financial support to these programs so that the next generation can live in a better place.

In conclusion, I firmly believe that space program should be supported financially as there is need to get together the whole world to improve the communication and fight against the environmental problems.

The text was decent, some grammar mistakes. However the conclusion was terrible, inadequate to say the least. The overall text wasn’t too bad but the conclusion really lowered it from University level to Kindergarten. However I am jewish and my critique may be harsh due to my verbal intelligence.

(I'm asian) - Space Exploration Essay

Curiosity has played an integral role in the advancement of the human species. From the discovery of fire by ancient ancestors to modern space explorations, it has been curiosity and the pursuit for a better future that has made humanity explore and innovate. However, exploration and innovation has never come without sacrifice. In regards to modern space exploration, the efforts to explore the universe has had negative effects including the loss of 18 human lives as of 2005 (CBS News, 2005), a tremendous investment of money, as well as adverse environmental effects both within Planet Earth and the solar system. These sacrifices have been made in efforts of propelling humanity into its most technologically and scientifically advanced stages. Therefore, due to the overwhelming social, economic, and scientific technological advancements that have been made because of investment in space exploration, the stakes and sacrifices made do not outweigh the benefits contributed.

Before one can criticise the efforts invested in space exploration, particularly monetary efforts, one must understand the underlying beneficial societal impact that is associated with investing time and money in space exploration. One is not only investing in merely ‘visits to outer space’ when funding and supporting space exploration (The US Space Program Benefits, n.d.). The money spent is invested in various industries such as manufacturing, research and development, salaries and benefits, doctors, teachers, scientists, students and various businesses.
