Before exploring the reasons as to why the U.S government should fund NASA, it is first necessary to observe what percentage of people think that NASA’s budget should be raised and why they do so. According to Thompson (2013), “76 percent of Americans agree that NASA’s budget should be increased to 1 percent of the total federal budget to fund initiatives, including a mission to Mars” (p.1). There are two reasons behind supporting the funding of NASA. Firstly, the main reason as to why people support space activities is curiosity. Curiosity has made man explore regions that have never been explored. 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. Most people hope that maybe someday travelling to space for a vacation or living on a different planet would be possible. This brings us to another issue. As the world faces issues like climate change and overpopulation, it is becoming difficult to accommodate all the inhabitants of the earth due to lack of space and natural resources. It is therefore crucial for governments to help resolve this issue. Funding of space exploration could help us solve this problem by developing new technology that could perhaps replicate the earth’s atmospheric conditions on a different planet. This way peoples dream of one day living on a different planet could become a reality.
Have you ever thought about space exploration? Do you think we should spend our valuable resources on it? Some people believe that we have a genetic desire to explore space. Although I believe that is false because our ancestors were doing absolutely fine without exploring space. We should not spend our valuable resources on space exploration.
Colonizing Mars Mars is often voted by people as being the most likely place for humans to colonize after we are done with Earth. This is often said because of Mars’s similar size to Earth and similar climate. However, Mars might not be the best place to go when we decide to make our first extra-terrestrial home. Whether you believe we should colonize another planet or not, evidence proves that moving to Venus is both logical and cost effective. There is much more promise in visiting Venus and much more we can learn.
Many people think that space exploration is a waste of money. They think that people shouldn’t be looking to the stars and that space exploration is unnecessary. Then there is the people who think otherwise. People from NASA, or people who just in general love space ,want to fund for the cause. 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.
(Source A)“I do not say that we should or will go unprotected against the hostile misuse of space any more than we go unprotected against the hostile use of land or sea, but I do say that space can be explored and mastered without feeding the fires of war...” Space exploration can answer many questions we have about the universe. The advances we make should we pursue it make it a necessity to avoid wars and conflict in the world, and bring harmony to our people. As the proverb states “what you give out to the universe, the universe gives back” further emphasizing the point made about what path our species will go. The more we learn about space, the more flaws and mysteries we know about the universe and allow us to better develop our civilization and
From creating the very first telescope to taking a picture of the entire solar system from 6 billion kilometers away, humanity has made tremendous progress involving space exploration. Some people predict that the 21st century will be an age of religion, the age of robots, the age of the destruction of mankind, but I have much larger plans for the future. I believe that it is human 's destiny to explore and expand all throughout our solar system, and even beyond. There is no ignoring the fact that humanity is advancing its knowledge of space at an extremely rapid pace.
A young boy, who was five years old when he watched Neil Armstrong stand on the moon, was quoted saying, “From that day on, whenever someone asks what I wanted to be when I grew up, I replied an astronaut. Forty years later, I still dream of going to space, and my appreciation of astronomy and our place in the universe was born watching men walk on the moon”
We all have a reason to be here and the journey of life is to find our purpose in life. It is what makes life so great, but to get there we must take risks and overcome that fear. People are afraid of taking risks because of failure. They are afraid to fail and not get anywhere. However, that fear can be overcome is they keep pushing and keep trying and keep taking risks.
She returned to the United States in 1985, Mae C. Jemison made changed her career and decided to follow a dream. In October of that year, she applied for admission to NASA’s astronaut training program. In January 1986 NASA astronaut training program delayed the selection process, but when she reapplied a year later, Mae C. Jemison was one of the 15 candidates chosen from about 2,000 people. When Mae C. Jemison was chosen on June 4, 1987, she became the first African-American woman to be in the astronaut training program. After more than a year of training, she became the first African- American female astronaut earning the title of science mission specialist.
In this speech that I have written I am prepared to explain to you some possible benefits exploring space may bring to the united states and as well as tell you guys that it is ok to have great and big dreams. c. d. e. Transition: If we wish the reach are goals we must
The first attempt and success to climb Mt. Everest occured in 1953. Since then, almost 4,000 people have been able to scale the mountain, but over 230 people have not been able to climb it successfully. There is a chance of accident or death when climbing this mountain or any dangerous activity. All people should should have the right to rescue services even if they knowingly put themselves at risk because there is always a chance of an accident happening, rangers are there to save people in danger, and there are rescue vehicles being produced to be used in case of an emergency.
Jemison earned the title of science mission specialist. This title and job required her to be responsible for conducting various scientific missions during her mission on the Endeavour. On September 12, 1992 on mission STS47 aboard the Endeavour Dr. Mae C. Jemison she became the African American woman to enter space. On her eight day journey, Dr. Jemison conducted experiments involving weightlessness and motion sickness. She conducted this experiments on herself and her fellow crew members.
There has recently been photos that have been shown of the mysterious planet of Pluto. By the looks of it, we should bundle up, bring our snowboarding gear, and fly off to Pluto and do some skiing and snowboarding! The New Horizons probe revealed these pictures to the public.
