Extracts from this document...


Victor Hinrichsen 11PWA Should we continue to spend money on Space Exploration Space Exploration started 6 decades ago, when in 1957 with the launch of the first artificial satellite launched by the Soviet Union on October 4th of 1957. But it was later on, 4 years later when the Soviet Union sent the first man ever on space, Yuri Gangar in 1961. Since then, Space Exploration hasn't stopped.

I think it would be extremely hard to live without does benefits. Some people as I mentioned before, couldn't work without communication. I think we should continue to spend money on Space Explorations; the government spends less then 1% of its budget per year on space exploration, over 30% of its budget helping poor in the U.S. We have adapted most of does benefits to our everyday living.
