After spending billions of dollars to go to the moon, Congress expected the Shuttle program to be financially self-supportive. This forced NASA to operate as a pseudo commercial business. Therefore, the environment within NASA preceding the Challenger launch was one of conflict, stress, and shortcuts. NASA The fact that the demands were getting higher and higher on NASA for the launch, it made the probability for disaster grow exponentially. NASA officials had a false sense of security and it lead to a decay and ultimately destruction.
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.
The radio and telecommunication have also been improved (NASA), space has changed our life, and without the invention of the satellite, there won 't be Internet, no communication, no international trade, and no economy… One of the Long-term effects of this race would be that the government started to spend more money on education because of the great enthusiasm with science that society had because of this race (University Nebraska). As we can see, the Space Race of 1950-1960s has been a huge period of technological advancement; it improved the economy, allowed great minds to be educated, and of course worldwide communications which made it easier to solve political problems such as the Cold
The United States has already taken the first step by passing the U.S. Space Launch Competitiveness Act. This document authorizes legislative action to " improve efficiency, reduce unnecessary costs, resolve inconsistencies, remove duplication, and minimize unwarranted constraints " (United ). The hands-off policies of the United States give U.S. businesses an incentive to invest in space, and it also allows the current companies grow unimpeded. Lowering government control in the space sector has multifaceted benefits in several respects. First and foremost, it allows competition to develop between companies, which increases opportunity for growth.
The more scientists find out about a comets structure and operation the better we have to greet the comet and send it elsewhere. Future missions like the Rosetta will be needed, this mission helped answer many questions about how comets work but there is still many more to be answered. All the information gathered from the rosetta mission such as its composition, density, and behavior suggest new ideas that we need to re-write about comets. Our understanding after the completion of the rosetta mission of comets and the formation of earth and other planets will never be the same thanks to the Rosetta and its philae. In conclusion The history, current perceptions, and future implications of the Rosetta Mission study has helped the scientific understanding of how Rosetta will unlock the mysteries of how the Solar System evolved.
Author, journalist, and filmmaker, Piers Bizony in his side of the article “For and Against:Space Exploration” argues that the exploration of space is not a waste of funds,and should continue to fund it. He supports this claim by explaining the benefit of continuing to fund them and their mission. Mr.Bizony next proceeds to show they ensure not only the improvement but also the development of technology, among companies and the young people, that need the inspiration through schools or other forms of education. Finally he argues that the space exploration program isn’t just wasting all of their time and money on space. Because,apparently in the terms of science 99.999 percent of all that people need to know is off-world.
Ever since humans looked up to the sky they wonder about space and the mysteries they hold. The expansion of human potential in space will be one of the humans race’s greatest accomplishment because it will lead us to new resources and expand humanity to make it happen, we are inventing new spacecrafts and technology to travel to different “worlds”. There are many conversation about how we can get to different planets. One interesting conversation is about NASA’s 100 Year Starship Project. In an article by Reed she talks about the 100 year project mission is to make a spacecraft to fly to another solar system within 100 years.
Is space exploration really a waste of resources? Researchers have debated over this for many years. Do we know if the equipment is really worth the use for space, or can we use it for better purposes? The resources can be turned into better uses for more relevant causes. Space exploration is a waste of resources that imply lost lives, costs, and failure when the resources should be used for issues happening in our world.
The advantages of space exploration is that scientists can invent some items especial for astronauts, which can benefit citizens’ lives and contribute to our health like equipment for heart and coating material. People have reached to Moon and land probes to Mars. Meanwhile, the disadvantages of space exploration is large amount of cost and space junk, which can damage the environment of outer space and threaten astronauts’ lives.
While there have been a number of advancements in the use of sustainable and renewable froms of energy, these methods cannot keep up with the current demand of energy.Technological and scientific advancements and rapid industrialization and population growth in developing countries puts even more stress on the Earth’s natural and mineral resources. As raw materials and mineral resources continue to dwindle, it is imperative for us to come up with an alternate source of energy. Since materials and resources from outer space are available and will be for millions of years, the solution to the growing population and energy crisis lies in utilization of extra-terrestrial resources. By looking at outer space and celestial bodies for mineral resources, there will be a tremendous impact on not only the conditions of living, but it also has the capability to solve the Earth’s energy crisis. Scientists also go on to say that the natural resources of celestial bodies will produce better results compared to alternative and renewable sources of energy due to the quality of the
