Her death still remains a topic of interest as she had taken a very strange route to die-she had turned on the gas and put her head in the oven. Plath was famous for writing in the genre of confessional poetry and is best known for her two published collections, The Colossus and Other Poems, and Ariel. Her poems explore her own mental anguish, the troubled marriage with Ted Hughes, her disturbed relations with her parents, and her self-perception.
Space exploration has long been a debated topic. From the days where there was controversy between whether the universe revolved around the Earth, because god made humans special, to whether Copernicus’s idea that the Earth and the other planets of the solar system revolve around the sun was true. Then there was the space race where there was a dilemma based on what was ethical to be produced and sent to space (such as weaponry during the cold war). The more contemporary problem involves the exploration of space and the danger that space debris poses. We must accept however that space is our back-up plan if we were to exploit the Earth to such an extent that we could no longer survive here.
The article shows us how space exploration has changed our lives and how different industries benefit from it. Industries such as telecommunications, medicine, transportation and social security have all seen developments as a result of space research. Likewise, in “Mankind beyond earth: The history, science, and future of human space exploration,” Claude Piantadosi, professor and director of the F. G Hall Environmental Laboratory at Duke University, discusses the need to rejuvenate space research. In the book, he describes space as being the final frontier. The author also highlights the salient features of space exploration by presenting arguments on how it has been useful so far and its future benefits.
