Should we continue to spend money on Space Exploration

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. In 1969, Neil Armstrong was to be the first man to walk on the moon.

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. I don't think it will ever stop, I hope it will continue to bring to us further benefits, and that they keep developing technology. ...read more.
