In science we have to support our ideas. I believe that the String theory is not fully supported because there are still more details and support that could be added to this theory. String theory is another step up for us to understand more about our universe. Scientists came up with the string theory to describe how organisms can be multiplied and interact with one another in space. In my opinion, scientists should just work with math because math is more convincing than any theories like the string theory.
Previous to string theory, these two things could not exist together as certain properties of quantum mechanics make general relativity impossible, such as the uncertainty principle. The uncertainty principle says that the exact location of a particle can never be precisely pinpointed, and this makes matter frenzied on small scales. This frenzy is caused by particles popping in and out of existence. The particles take energy, come into existence, and jump right back out, releasing energy, and therefore still following laws of conservation. This frenzy is called quantum foam.
The money spent on the space race was not a legitimate use of government funds because the money could have gone to more relevant causes, it is extremely dangerous, and exploration beyond earth is unnecessary until we can first solve problems on earth. This money could have gone to more relevant causes. NASA spent twenty three billion dollars on manned programs from 1961 to 1969(Granath). This money could have gone to much better causes such as education and healthcare. Many communities in the US need more funds for education that NASA is instead using for space exploration.
Another reason is that we wouldn’t have been able to see that Jupiter has 4 large moons, without it. Discoveries can mean a lot to humanity, that’s how we have evolved since, ancient times. His discoveries have made a big difference in the world. If it wasn’t for him we still would have thought that the moon was smooth, but with his telescope he saw that it had craters, valleys, mountains, and a geographical terrain. How his discoveries have impacted our lives, is that we would have had a little bit of knowledge of space, or even the universe.
They might have this opinion because they believe we have a genetic desire to explore space and that we expand our territory. In “Future of Space Exploration”, it states that Steltzner said “I can 't really think of a country that 's been stable for 1000 years.” Earth is most likely not going to be able to support life forever. So if we do spend valuable resources on space exploration, we can maybe find another planet. However this is misguided because of the cost of space exploration. Space exploration is very expensive.
If you stay in place for too long you begin to fall behind and as JFK said “No nation who expects to be the leader of other nations can expect to fall behind.” b. The exploration of space will go on with or without the united states and if wish to stay among the world as a power we cannot allow ourselves to not take on this new great adventure. c. We are obligated to pursue space because we cannot afford to fall behind other nations. IV. Transition: Understanding that we cannot not fall behind is key but now lets set our minds to what can be achieved in this new quest.
One may argue that this linear idea is the foundational problem with humanity. As one wise time traveller once said “People assume that time is a strict progression of cause to effect, but actually ...it 's more like a big ball of wibbly wobbly... time-y wimey... stuff” (Doctor Who S3E10). While this isn’t the most eloquent or scientific quote, it makes the audience think about how they view time and their life. While today society accepts time as a linear concept, this was not always the norm. William Shakespeare lived in an era of change and revolution.
Time travel is a concept that most people only believe to exist in works of pure science fiction, but it may be a reality within the next generation. It is possible that if we travel close to the speed of light, we can travel forward in time; however, today 's technology has not provided us with a way to get back home. The fastest object created by man has gone 164,700 miles per hour or 45.75 miles per second (The Fastest Man-Made Objects, 2018). That is only 0.002 percent the speed of light, which would only send you into the future 2 milliseconds if you were on the ship for a whole day. The only plausible way to go back in time, is to open up a wormhole to the point that you would like to travel back to, travel into the future, make the other end of the wormhole travel at the speed of light.
They think that space can help the economy improve and that there is more to space than stars and a bunch of planets. They also believe that they will find new resources to genetically modify our society. And they just might get their wishes if people start funding for space travel. Finding cures, new resources, and studying space are only a few reasons why space travel is necessary and why people should do more to fund the cause. Cancer and Mono still haven’t found a cure but, with the help of space travel, people can explore space and find other materials to find a cure for diseases.
Why do so many people deny the childlike curiosity of knowing what goes on past what we can see? There are a number of good reasons to expand the space program. Although it can be an extremely costly endeavor, space exploration could provide the world with a far greater knowledge of our universe and planet, spark revolutionary innovations, and take the next steps in human expansion. Many people reject the idea of space travel because of how expensive and dangerous it is, and suggest that the United States fix the problems on Earth before worrying about the problems beyond it. Of the United States’ funds, NASA has spent “more than $900 billion since its creation in 1958 through 2014” (Fowler).
Ever since America has decided stop going to the moon enthusiasm and support for space travel and NASA in general has decreased. In 2010, President Obama cut funding for several NASA missions including a mission that would have put Americans back on the moon by 2020. "I understand that some believe that we should attempt a return to the surface of the Moon first, as previously planned. But I just have to say pretty bluntly here: We’ve been there before," Obama said. This opinion is shared by many Americans, but what many Americans don 't realize are the amazing benefits of space travel.
Time is a big factor between these two views. One view believes it took billions of years for this to appear and the other believes that it happened in a matter of days. Another big difference between these two were how our solar system came into existence. Old-earth view believes that everything was created from gas and dust and spinning out of control to create our solar system. Young-earth believes that a Being, also known as God spoke everything into creation.
However, as NASA points out, due to the average transmitter and the vast separation to Earth the data takes a long time to get back to the Earth. NASA actually points out that all the information will not be back until 2016. This should only be the start as New Horizons should continue to reveal amazing photos of Pluto. However, the photos that were shown recently show a vast array of mountains and ice fields.
This NASA study is a preparatory step for a human Mars exploration mission by 2030s that will take at least 18 months. Although it must be an incredible mission for the future of mankind, it needs to be carefully considered. First of all, it is like gambling to send human beings to Mars for a long time without sufficient research and technological advancement of the universe and life, the most unknown fields of modern science. There are still too many unknowns on the earth, especially viruses or bacteria. The knowledge and technologies to study these living things are still developing.
Would the military have a right to deploy weapons then? Not under the current terms of the treaty, no. As technology improves over the next several decades, or longer, the idea of civilian space travel is not so far-fetched. NASA is already planning a mission to Mars, and if missions see continued success, there is no doubt that States will invest their time, money, and resources to expand the space industry further. It needs time to develop before a decision can really be determined.
