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.
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.
Even science, at this point, can only postulate what answers these questions may hold. However, as science begins to develop, the possibility of finding answers continues to create a gravitational pull like a planet may. With so many eyes on the field and a lack of scientific proof, literature and movies in the genre of science-fiction, or more commonly known as sci-fi, explores ideas of the future commonly by expressing a widespread fear. These fears can range from a fear of annihilation to fear of loss of control or even simply to a fear of the unknown. The sci-fi movie Europa Report (2013) decided to rise to the challenge of answering the question of what’s out there.
However this is misguided because of the cost of space exploration. Space exploration is very expensive. If we go out and explore space and end up finding out that we can 't survive on any other planet, other than Earth, all the money and resources we used to to launch that spacecraft, goes down the
One of the biggest mysteries for the human race isn’t what is on Earth, or even in the solar system, but what is beyond. Although powerful telescopes, such as the Mauna Kea Observatories, can see incredibly far, they’re only able to see roughly 46 billion light years in any one direction, making the diameter of the observable universe, or the part of the universe that humans can observe with telescopes, roughly 92 billion light years. Since the universe as a whole is so vast, scientists are unable to estimate the actual size (Redd, 2013) and possibly will never be able to do so if it continues to expand. In the Milky Way galaxy alone, there are an estimated 8.8 billion stars with habitable Earth-like planets (Borenstein, 2013), which greatly
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.

Is hunting for sport (not food or survival) morally justified? At one point of time hunting was very crucial for survival but now some would say hunting is nothing more than a violent form of recreation that the majority of hunters do not need for subsistence. Those who support hunting may say it does more good than bad for economic reasons. Outsiders are more concerned with the pain and suffering and loss of life endured by the animals. A study conducted by a Yale professor concluded that 60% of Americans disapprove of sport hunting and about one-third of Americans favor a total ban on hunting (Achor 138). I believe hunting animals for sport and not for survival is completely wrong and should be illegal.
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.
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.

Everyone involved in our life has helped raise and teach us about almost everything as they all played a role in our lives. But how exactly did they play a role in our lives? In my opinion, they educated us on things that our time in school did not. In school, they teach us the same four subjects each year: English, Math, Science, and Social Studies. However, they are not teaching us things that we would have to learn from experience later in our lives. They are not focused on teaching us what to expect when we reach the age of adulthood, they are focused on teaching us about the subjects appointed by the Department of Education (DOE). This is the issue we face every day with the school system because although it is great to have a better understanding in these subjects, they should also focus on teaching us how to prepare for the real world. I strongly believe that they should be teaching us how to save money, how to be a better candidate for a job application, and how we are are going to need to be independent. Education should not just be about our academics or else we will never get anywhere. It should also be about how to prepare yourself for real-world problems.
Creation is something people have different opinions about worldwide, this is a topic that has many different theories. There have been many different ideas that people have thought of in order to try to get people to think that it wasn’t God who created the earth. Almost always the new story got its ideas, based off the story of God’s creation of earth. Some of these crazy theories even try to show that humans were originally monkeys, before they were humans.
It is essential that younger generations receive a quality education. Children all over the United States of America are being deprived of their schooling. Not all schools receive equal funding. Kids who grow up in less wealthy areas are less likely to receive a good education. Children are being set up for failure. They 're funding is based on the wealth of the area they live in. Kids who might have excelled in certain areas with the right tutoring will never get the opportunity to without the proper funding. This is a shame to see talent going to waste. Think of all of the possibilities that these children could have created for the world with the right education. The United States has to invest in the youth. Keep the chain going to better the standard of life. That 's what the future is all about. We must improve on our previous generations to make the world a better place to live in. The United States must rehaul the out of date education system to compete with other top nations to give children an opportunity to education with equal funding so they can learn to the best of their ability.
