Without funds NASA cannot develop new technology and without technology researchers and scientists would not be able to explain a discovery that they made with existing technology. For example, without the invention of the Mars Rover, scientists would not have been able to discover water on Mars. This example alone leaves people questioning space and it attributes such as planets, galaxies and even aliens. This curiosity leads to the second reason as to why people support space activities. The idea of travelling to space is one of the driving factors for people to support funding of space exploration.
I for one am super jealous that they get to go into space, then again I don’t have that kind of money, but I think this is a great thing Space X is starting. Like I said before, space exploration is not something we’re just going to brush under the rug, sooner or later we’ll have to go
Our budget for colonizing Mars is six billion dollars, that’s about how much one trip to Mars would cost. Therefore with our budget being six billion dollars, we can only afford a one way trip. Lives are far more important than having more space. To risk hurting our own kind, and then let them die after doing a great thing for this world would be cruel. In addition, since Mars is so dangerous, the colonists that go to Mars could die or catch a disease on the trip to Mars.
In the movie, it has been mentioned there that the government didn’t want to spend a part of the nation’s savings for space exploration. The reason is that it would just be a waste of money, which is not the case. If the end of the Earth really did happen and the only solution is to leave the Earth, space exploration would become a necessity. It would save human beings from extinction and would preserve mankind’s
The moon landing was the most inportant event in NASA history. 1.If it wouldn’t have been for the landing we wouldn’t know what we know about our galaxy. They found water and a trace of life on the moon. 2. If we wouldn’t have known that there was something else out there, because of people wondering they wouldn’t have found water on the moon.
Interstellar is a science fiction movie that focuses on space travel to save humanity from a dying Earth. In the beginning of the movie we are shown that there is something wrong with climate based on all of the dust storms and dying crops. Although Interstellar does a decent job at showing us that climate change is occurring, the movie actually lacks important aspects of climate change such as explanations and realistic solutions, therefore Interstellar does a terrible job at explaining climate change. In order to show you that Interstellar does a poor job at defining climate change I will explore different aspects of the movie and of climate change.
Hedman in his article “The Politics and Ethics of Spending Money on Space Exploration.” discusses the appropriate amount of money that should be spent on space travel. He explains that bad decisions, low funding, and unpredicted problems, is the reason our technology hasn 't reached the level that the past expected. Many aren 't satisfied with the space exploration progress. He proceeds next to show what the space program actually does for us,like they provide us with the knowledge of stars,the galaxy and our place in it. Lastly,he wants to give NASA a boost of money to get through transition from flying the shuttle to the CEV(Crew Exploration Vehicle),if we don 't we would be giving the scientists a hard time on judging how much should be spent based on how much was distributed.
Why did Columbus travel west? Why did Alexander the Great head east? Because it is that charm, that sense of unknown, that outlook for adventure and expedition which compels humans to explore new frontiers. The ultimate identification of adventure is in living on another planet, millions of light years away from Earth; where one would look up in the night sky with the knowledge that one of those brightly shining stars is in reality the planet that you were born on. However, it is a sobering fact to realize that the unfortunate reason for the human race to abandon the mother Earth and move to another planet is due to the risks caused by our own mutilation of nature whether it is by global warming or famine or nuclear threats.
Tina Cai Sci-Fi Paper Synopsis As resources and habitability quickly dwindles from the planet Earth’s clutches, humans all over the globe look for the possibility of living in space. Desperate to avoid what they have caused to their animal counterparts, nations previously in competition work together to fashion technology capable of keeping the human race alive and thriving on a planet other than Earth. The countless successful robotic launches to Mars have provided enough information about the planet that scientists are fairly confident in human survival on planet Mars. In order to successfully transport as many people and resources to Mars as possible, aerospace engineers face problems such as physical space, resource storage, travel efficiency,
It has two possible solutions. One solution considers that intelligent extraterrestrials do not exist, and the other solution considers a variety of hypotheses that consider that intelligent extraterrestrials do exist, but there is a reason beyond the lack of evidence. Physicists Michael Hart and Frank Tipler argue for the lack of intelligent extraterrestrial life, claiming that they are nonexistent in the galaxy and/or universe and all other reasonings for the lack of evidence regarding their existence are inaccurate. Other hypotheses suggest that intelligent extraterrestrial life does exist and their is an explanation for the lack of evidence. The Zoo Theory claims that intellectual extraterrestrials do not want their presence be known to humanity and that humanity lives in a somewhat zoo like environment that “they” observe.
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.
If I asked you “What does NASA stand for?” you would probably say either “Need another seven astronauts” or “Need another shuttle also”. Today those jokes can’t be funny because NASA’s funding has been cut by congress, so they could probably use more astronauts and another space shuttle, but they don 't have the funding to hire more people and or keep up with today 's progress. NASA’s funding shouldn’t be cut by the government because NASA doesn’t have much money to support its educational programs, NASA also doesn’t have the funding to keep up with technology, so NASA can’t send anyone into space until 2021, and they won’t have the ability to keep up with the progress which will set them back generations. NASA has recently halted some of their educational programs due to budget cuts and American citizens are not happy.
Living on Mars could possibly be compared to living on Antarctica. However, there has never been a time in which a great feat has been accomplished without a great sacrifice. Most likely some of us wouldn’t be here right now if it weren’t for the countless people who fought for America’s independence. If it wasn’t for the millions of young men who died in WWII, Hitler might still be killing Jews and other races. Throughout history, every great event most likely cost the life of somebody.
Indeed one of the main reasons why this telescope should not be built on Mauna Kea is because of the excessive funds. The costs for building this new telescope are estimated at $1.4 billion (Fox). The funds from the telescope could instead go to another project that could be located elsewhere so that the public do not get angry. Although the telescope could provide more space research, it’s not worth building a telescope that is going to cost
Is Space Exploration Worth it? Do you want to stay here forever? The question of space exploration has lingered inside everyone’s mind since the Space Race and humans looked to the stars. Humankind exploring our interstellar neighborhood in inevitable and beneficial.
