Money, money, money!

Space-SpecialQuestion-Banner-V3

Richard Branson, Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos, three of the richest people in the world, are planning to take more tourists into space.

Last year all three launched their first space flights.

To get on Mr Branson’s rocket plane, people paid around $450,000 per ticket. For that, they got: special training and a space suit, a 90-minute flight to the edge of space and four minutes of floating and feeling "weightless" inside the shuttle.

Here are some other things you could buy with the same amount of money:

  • 450,000

    trees for the
    Amazon rainforest

  • 30

    luxury around-the-world
    air-travel tickets

  • 4000

    aid boxes containing food and medicine for a family in need

  • 70

    tickets for a family of four
    to go to Disneyland

  • 560

    of the most recent
    smartphones

  • 1

    new home

    I agree because..................................
    Should everyone have the opportunity to go into space? Why and why not?

    Yes, everyone should have this opportunity to think about this universe and this great creation, and this trip has its positives. One of them is for man to know what is in relation to this universe and what is its size in relation to space, and also this trip is important to know the people who are arrogant and see that they are the greatest just because they have money I tell them that for this universe there is nothing, so make good use of your brains to make better use of your money

    It also has its downsides
    There are many, if not thousands, of people who died of starvation because they did not have a livelihood, and because some of them were devastated by wars and conflicts that made their lives worse, and because people like them spend money just to get special suits and tickets. I have a question, is there no mercy and humanity in these hearts.

  • constructive_durian | Futures Hurghada Language School | Egypt 28 Oct 2022

    Would you ever buy a ticket to go to space? Why or why not?
    I would like to buy a ticket to go to space because it is a new experience in the world of universe and galaxy and to see the stars and planets in a great picture. For me it is a wonderful experience.

  • constructive_durian | Futures Hurghada Language School | Egypt 28 Oct 2022

    Should everyone have the opportunity to go into space? Why or why not?
    Not everyone should go to space because not everyone is interested in space and universe but Going to space for people who interested in space will find it a great experience.

    1_I can buy a villa for 100 thousand dollars, and a modern car for 50 thousand dollars, and the rest you can buy a large plot of land in a tourist site

    2_Would you ever buy a ticket to go to space? Why or why not?
    No, I will not buy, because space is not one of my interests, and I prefer to discover natural areas, countries and their cultures, and because the expensive ticket price is equal to travel expenses (ticket, housing and roaming) to approximately 10 countries

    3_Yes, so that they can verify the validity of human access to space and the moon, and that it is not a media deception by governments

    1/ What could you buy for $450,000 where you live? What would you spend it on?..
    I will spend the money for 4000 aid boxes containing food and medicines for families in need because Donating money does not detract from our money, but God blesses the money of those who donate money, and the feeling of donating money and helping others gives a beautiful feeling that cannot be described. And God Almighty commanded us to give charity and donate money to the needy to protect ourselves and free our necks from the fire of Hell. Charity, zakat, or donating money, food or drink is an essential pillar of the Islamic religion

    2/Would you ever buy a ticket to go to space? Why or why not?
    No, I will not buy a ticket, because it is also called extravagance of money, because there are those who need it more than me, so I will spend it for the sake of God

    3/Should everyone have the opportunity to go into space? Why or why not?

    No, it should not be available to everyone, because it can be a danger to the lives of some

  • receptive_outcome | Beit Hanoun Prep Girls A School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 31 Oct 2022

    •A large number of schools in the sector can be repaired, provided with seats, and more classrooms can be built to solve the problem of classroom overcrowding. If I owned this amount, I would supply the entire sector with electricity, which is one of the basics of life today, and we suffer from interruptions for very long periods during the day.

    •Yes, I want to go to space to increase my culture, knowledge and experience, and because I love to study geology, I want to study the external environment

    •Yes, in order for everyone to be equal and to experience and increase their experience, everyone should have the opportunity to innovate and invent and not be limited by poverty or racism.

  • free_snail | Beit Hanoun Prep Girls A School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 31 Oct 2022

    1. What am I going to do with the money? I will buy 560 phones, you will ask me why?? And what am I going to do with it?? We are a poor country that cannot provide all that is required for students in schools, universities and institutes to be taught remotely, so there must be phones or other devices that students can use while learning.
    Or to develop our country, we will import these phones and add some pieces to them to become newer, advanced and more practical, and so we can employ new labor and talents in our country.

    2. No, it is true that I wish to visit space even for once, but I will not do so. There are many people like me who dream of going there, but there are many patients who are not allowed to go there, such as those with heart diseases, and also the amounts are very high, they cannot pay and so they cannot Realizing their dream, and I demand equality between them and the payment of sums that a person can afford.

    3. The opportunity must be given to those he loves, but if that is after training and guiding them to how to be there and to be compensated for everything, and to be very careful, but for every rule anomalies, the opportunity must rest, but not for everyone, as I said earlier, but many patients Those who cannot go there, in your opinion, what should we do with them in order to realize their dream??

  • bold_apple | Shouka Prep Girls School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 31 Oct 2022

    My answers will be: I will choose the sum of 4000, I will buy a big house (big building) and I will live in it for the needy and help them.
    As long as I live in Palestine, there are many people whose economic situation is very bad. Otherwise, a Quranic verse indicates that people are brothers: “The believers are brothers.” This verse expresses many things.
    Plus, when you help someone, you plant love in their hearts, and people remind you of the good.
    For example: When you help people, cooperation will spread among people.
    Otherwise, everyone will want to be like you, and society will become loved in cooperation and security and will smell blackened by cooperation and love between people.

  • honest_cat | Shouka Prep Girls School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 31 Oct 2022

    In my opinion, we should buy aid boxes containing food and medicine and give out charity. Yes, because I dream of going on an adventure with my friends and visiting the planets. Information that the space suit is estimated at 5 million dollars. It is said that they are trying to invent a space wear estimated price of 50 million dollars. And the time between Earth and space varies. As for the opportunity for everyone, this is personal freedom. Some people like to take risks, and some people do not like adventures.

  • majestic_boysenberry | Beit Hanoun Prep Girls A School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 31 Oct 2022

    I can spend it on building an art exhibition because i love the field of art and through that i will develop my talent and it is possible that it will develop in the future and become famous and visitors and artists from other countries will come to it

    Yes i will buy because i love to discover interesting things and see what really excites me and experience the feeling of zero gravity in space and take samples of rooks and explore them and see the stars that fill space

    1.With this amount, I can buy 9 apartments for the poor or open a treatment project for them as a charitable work and get a wage, and I can spend this amount in helping the poor and meeting their needs and achieving what I wish to travel abroad for tourism and help my family with their needs and go for Hajj and Umrah in Mecca and the Prophet’s Mosque in Medina Munawara.
    2. I don't think so because I can make use of this money for myself, and I can benefit others as well. If I want to go and explore, then I want to innovate and strive to be a scientist or astronaut and do a lot for it.
    3. It shouldn't be because there are people who can't go there or don't have the ability to do so, but they can watch the space online

  • eager_snow | Beit Hanoun Prep Girls A School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 31 Oct 2022

    1 What could you buy for $450,000 where you live and what would you spend it on?

    I came to work in the installation and construction of things to develop technology and life and spend it in Jerusalem in the right time and effort and help professionals, for example, doctors in dealing with those interested in construction


    2 Will you buy and take root in space? Why and why not?

    Yes, first of all, I love exploration and knowledge and I want to go to space. My curiosity tends to see a full-size space, how are the conditions in space, and I do my best to seek to know what is unknown to increase people’s knowledge, educate them, society flourishes, and facilitate life, and because my dream is that an astronaut whose name is among these people Creative people.

    3 Should everyone have the opportunity to go into space, why? and why not?

    No, only for those who want to discover, there are people who only go to see space and can see it through the Internet, and the opportunity must be given to those who want to seek to truly know the unknown, because if everyone goes to space, it causes the destruction of space, and perhaps on the other hand, everyone should be given the opportunity to go, because there are people who are able to discover And we don't know then, if we discover many things in space, let's all fly there

    What can I buy with 450 thousand dollars in my country?!
    When we are asked a question like this, the first thing that comes to our mind is the things we love and need, and we will not care about the rest of the things that may be small, but they are the ones that make the biggest difference. Will everything I buy will benefit me now and in the future?!
    Yes, this is what I need, so the first thing I decide to buy is a very large amount of books and various novels on different topics for 100 thousand dollars in order to be able to cover the largest possible number of residents of my country. Make him aware, as it is said, “If you do not learn how to plant seeds in the ground, the tree will not grow",And so with our society, if we do not make them aware and cultured, our many attempts to progress will not succeed. After this step, I will allocate part of the money to support productive projects inside my country for a number of distinguished people with experience, to make ourselves great with our own hands, and I will contribute another part to cooperation A joint venture with a friendly country in a project, so I will have secured the innovations of my people and neighboring countries, and thus my success in the present and the future.



    Should I buy a ticket to go to space?!
    Yes, I like this idea a lot, in fact, but in my own opinion, an opportunity like this should not go to anyone, rather it should go to those who deserve it and even benefit us with it. What did we gain?!
    Although there are many impulsive people who love space and have the ability and serious thinking, their financial circumstances prevent them. In this situation, I recommend that such an opportunity goes to someone who deserves it. For example, I will set an example on myself. I try a lot of things there, for example, what if I grow a plant in space?! Will it grow like in the ground?! And a lot of other things, so the opportunity to go to space is a worthy opportunity to do, and I will be useful by bringing explorations and facts from there to benefit those interested in this field .


    As I said earlier, not everyone deserves the opportunity to go to space. From my point of view, I see that many people make fun of space researchers and their work, saying that it does not work, but you see them surprised when they see the results of your research on a topic!
    Whoever goes to space must return with valuable information that is equal to the suffering that cost him the arrival of that place called space, to this time and space, a very large world and still somewhat mysterious, and we need all the need to know new things about it. They do this while sitting in their bed eating popcorn, as many websites publish about space and its nature, but we really need global explorations that turn the scales of the world!

  • willing_woodpecker | Beit Hanoun Prep Girls A School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 31 Oct 2022

    What can you buy for $450,000 where you live? What will you spend it on?
    I build homes for orphans, give alms to the needy and the elderly, help patients with treatment, and I also want to build a very big factory to make medicines for patients. On the other hand, I will build my future, which will result in my stability, as I will spend money on projects that will last for a long time, and will be beneficial to me and people. Also, I will go on tourism and exploration trips around the world to know what is in the universe in which I live


    Would you buy a ticket to go to space or not?
    Yes I will buy because since my childhood I love everything related to space and I will fulfill one of my desires and go to space to see the beautiful world of space that I always see in pictures and I will write a scientific report about space and about everything I saw and liked in space

    Should everyone be allowed to go into space?

    No, because there are a lot of people who dream of going to space, but when they go they are very afraid and can die in space and it is not good for someone to die in the place they always dreamed of going to and if all the people go to space there will be fewer people on Earth and there will be problems in space and earth

  • sceptical_journalist | Shouka Prep Girls School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 31 Oct 2022

    No, because space is for discovery and for scientists, space is not prepared for the entry of ordinary people. The land is enough for tourism. If ordinary people went, this would be costly and they did not benefit. Scientists are getting tired to go there.

    3. I agree actually that everyone should have the opportunity to go to space because we are all humans with same rights, we all have curiosities for what is out there do we should all equally have the opportunity to go to space. Many rich people feel like because they have gone to space they are better than those who haven't. This shouldn't be so as no human is superior to another we are all humans.

    1&2. But, on the other hand, if I had 450 000 dollars I would not buy a ticket to space because as it is there are still many people out there who lack food to eat no to talk of travelling to space so that 450 000 dollars can buy 4000 aid boxes containing food and medicine for families in need. I think that will be of more use because at the moment our world has not reached the stage where everyone can easily afford a trip to space. So people are still left behind and need help. They have greater need for essential commodities for survival than for trips to space so I think that would be my point of focus.

    1/ What can you buy for $450,000 💵 where I live? What will you spend it on?
    What I can buy for 450 thousand dollars 💵 in my living place is to buy a ticket 🎫 to go to space because I love space and what is in it of galaxies, stars and planets and also I like to go and think and watch the creatures in it and look at what God Almighty created for us and I thank him for it and say thank God Who created this for us, and if we looked at ourselves and looked at space, we would find that we are an atom of anything very small in relation to space.
    2/ Should everyone have the opportunity to go to space for what? why not?
    Frankly, my idea is that everyone should have the opportunity to go to space, and the reason is so that they can benefit from experiences and benefits from space. I support that, but there are those who cannot go to space because of diseases that prevent them from going, and there are those who cannot go to space because of the lack of money in their pockets. .

  • outstanding_rabbit | Beit Hanoun Prep Girls A School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 01 Nov 2022

    Should everyone have the opportunity to go into space? Why and why not? No - because going to space is a very expensive journey and not everyone can afford it because of their poor financial conditions. However, some people suffer from health problems that do not allow them to go to space and explore it.

  • brilliant_laboratory | Rhemaville Christian Academy | Nigeria 01 Nov 2022

    I'm not a major fan of space exploration but I do enjoy learning about it and watching some sci-fi films. I won't invest too much in space exploration but the one thing I'm sure of is that $450,000 can really be useful in feeding children in Africa and investing more on the eco-friendly sector. After all, what are we really to explore in space? Places on the moon yet to have human footprints or the planet Mars? I think its better to just take care of our present environment. Space can wait, unless there's a meteor that needs to be stopped or another satellite to be launched! Even though space exploration can increase human knowledge on it, I still think we need to take care of what is right in front of us.

  • brilliant_laboratory | Rhemaville Christian Academy | Nigeria 01 Nov 2022

    I will dedicate that amount of money to charity and pay to learn computerized animation and programming. Also, I know a few of my teachers at school who need to know how appreciated they are.

  • great_mango | Beit Hanoun Prep Girls A School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 01 Nov 2022

    What could you buy for $450,000 where you live? What would you spend it on?

    can buy a large and spacious building, make it an orphanage for children, bring workers in it, and take care of all their needs.

    Would you ever buy a ticket to go to space? Why or why not?

    This was my dream from when I was a young child to go to space and explore and become a scientist, but I cannot go because there are many difficulties in front of me that hinder me to go, for example, the financial situation and the lack of places in our country You can go to space through it, but we will not give up and I will keep dreaming and achieving my dream of going to space.

    Should everyone have the opportunity to go into space? Why or why not?

    We can say it is available, but not for everyone. Those who can go are in places and countries that allow them, and this is also possible for their studies to allow them to go to space, but those who cannot go are those who live in countries They cannot go to space from it, and there are also people whose country allows and has the ability to graduate the population, but there are residents who cannot pay the desired money (in case of poverty).

    When I was 10 I read about the man who travelled around the world in 88 days. If I had 450,000$ , I would travel to the most industrial countries around the world to do one thing.
    Meet the children there; talk and discuss about the planet, poor people and green developments. That because they are the second generation who should think of the Earth as one place to live in not a business planet without caring about others and the planet itself.

    I think everybody should have the opportunity to go to space because it is an exciting oppotunity and something that should bring joy. So, I think everyone deserves to share some of that excitement and joy. However, this would cost a lot of money-money we might not have. Still, everyone could get an opportunity, but because of the cost, it may be years before you could travel.
    I personally, would not buy a ticket to go to space. I am concerned about climate change, and there are better things to spend money on. Like 450,000 trees, for example. This would help our planet, wheras going into space puts more pollution into the atmosphere.

    What could I do with 450,000 pounds in my country?
    Well, a lot I could easily make the entire community a better place. I would donate some of the money to people in need, and I could create a better future for me and the people around me.
    Should everyone get a chance to go to space?
    Simple answer, No. Why? Because going to space A costs a lot of money. The fact it costs a large amount of money to build a spaceship means that if everyone could do it the people taking them to space would lose money and it costs a huge amount of money to get the materials this means that if everyone did it the earth would lose materials that could be put to good use. Another reason that supports my answer is that there are many people whose lives have been devastated by war, poverty and natural disasters this money could support them and their families by supplying food, water and shelter.

    What could you buy for $450,000 where you live? What would you spend it on?
    Being provided this substantial quantity of money would make me grin ear to ear that I would never stop smiling. If I got this much money then I would attempt making a change to the world just like how Greta Thumberg attempted doing.

    Furthermore, I would persistently persevere and attempt providing some money to a diabete charity so that the diabete children can see a glimmer of hope. I would specifically dedicate this money to this specific charity due to the fact that my best friend has diabete and I love seeing her grin and hope to see her grin one more time when I meet her eye to eye.
    Additionally, I would provide a fraction of the money to an orphanage because all those children have lost the people who are the most dearest to their hearts, do really deserve a grin and money to buy all that their little or big hearts truly desire.

    To continue, my parents deserve the whole lot of the cash as they have done a multitude of things just to see me happy. They deserve more than a million glittering stars and I do hope to see them smile every time they see me.

    That is all I have to say
    Thank you for reading my post.

  • contemplative_signature | Cheam Fields Primary Academy | United Kingdom 01 Nov 2022

    1. I think everybody should have an opportunity to go to space because it will create a new life experience and possibly persuade you to take part more in eye-opening activities that will bring you much happiness later in life. If I had the chance to go to space(and was willing to go), I would have been extremely happy. So, I think this joy should be spread to everyone across the whole world.
    2. Although, the cost would be too much for me to pay. Instead of using the money to take part in an activity which involves polluting the atmosphere even more, we could use the money to guarantee that the world will go on for many, many centuries more by planting the 450,000 trees in the Amazon Rain forest. With $1 per tree, we can provide more oxygen to us, humans, and make the trees teeming with life.
    This will have a good impact on the world and possibly delay climate change for a long time.

  • storytelling_cherry | Beit Hanoun Prep Girls A School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 01 Nov 2022

    Everyone should have a chance to enter space, why and why not?
    Yes, everyone should have the opportunity to go to space, because space is a beautiful world created by God Almighty, and we have to discover more beautiful things and write a book about space and its vast knowledge. There are many space sciences that we do not know about and their sources, so we must encourage everyone to travel to space and discover its manifestations
    But there are some downsides to space travel, including the inability to buy tickets for travel and endangering the lives of travelers

  • giving_mood | Shouka Prep Girls School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 02 Nov 2022

    There are many needy families, so I will pay this amount to buy aid boxes containing food and medicine for needy families because these families deserve the money more than me. From close up, because space is very wonderful, not everyone should have the opportunity to go to space, because some will go for the purpose of entertainment and not discovery for me. Only people who want to explore should go to make more things that benefit us on Earth.

    If I had $450,000 I would live in my own house near to a beach so every day I can get up and go to the beach whenever I want. I would buy a ticket to go to space because I would love to see how fun it is to have no gravity. I think everyone should have an opportunity to go to space because it would lovely to see everyone telling their experiences when they went to space.

    If I had $450,000, the first thing I would think of was investing in AI, because if you weren't good at picking stocks or didn't have the time to do that, AI could be used to help make investment decisions because in the past, it was Only large organizations have access to this technology, I walk by the saying money comes with money. If I invest in artificial intelligence, which is a profitable field now and in the future, I will get more money that will later enable me to achieve all the goals that I aspire to, not far. Instead of dreaming of getting into space, I could open a company responsible for sending people into space.

    I want to buy, in the amount of 450,000, four thousand boxes of aid that contain food and medicine for families in need. I would like to donate to the state of Somalia and Syria, because they are countries devoid of economic resources such as oil, petroleum, minerals and other resources that increase their economy and also due to the fact that they are located in very hot places, especially in Somalia This causes sunstroke that leads to death if the condition of the person suffering from heat stroke worsens, and because the population of Somalia continues to increase, as for Syria, it is a country that suffers from diseases due to poor living because it is a country that suffers from wars and moves from one place to another. Migrants will suffer from serious diseases due to the climate and weather changes, so I would like to donate to them all the medicines that guarantee them and their children health
    Because the donation is sustenance, health and well-being for its donor, so my principle that I follow in life before I take any step is to donate because my religion taught me to love and help our brothers all over the world. .

    First, what can you do with 450 thousand dollars and what will you spend it on? I create small projects for unemployed youth and develop them after that. It is also possible to create small boxes of aid that contain food and basic foods that people need. There are many people who need food and I clean the seashore and get rid of sewage and recycle trash in my city to be less Environmental pollution and cleaner, so it becomes a beautiful environment suitable for life, attractive to tourists and the economy flourishes. Should everyone have a chance to go to space? My answer is yes because we must think about these creative creations and also because there are people who have talents in exploration who can grow their talents by discovering things in space that help scientists find undiscovered creations.

  • excited_artist | Shouka Prep Girls School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 02 Nov 2022

    I will build a big house for my family and buy a nice car
    And the advancement of the people of my town by building a public library of culture and free thought to advance the youth category and embrace their talents and encourage them because they are the future generation and provide them with higher education
    I think that a ticket to go to space is not important to me because its price can be used in many other areas for the development of my country
    And the opportunity to go to space should be limited to scientists and specialists because it could pose a threat to the lives of some, I think

  • outgoing_perspective | Shouka Prep Girls School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 02 Nov 2022

    Should everyone have the opportunity to go to space? Why? And why not ?
    Yes, because most people love exploration and space, and the goal of the trips should be scientific research in the creation of God's creation, but there is another aspect of these trips. There are people in Africa who die of starvation and these spend money on Something they consider just for fun, nothing more

  • curious_contribution | Rhemaville Christian Academy | Nigeria 02 Nov 2022

    I do not think everyone should be allowed to space, not everyone would understand the beauty or value of the experience some just want to brag and say they have been to space others may have health issues that would not allow them like phobia or breathing problems.
    The money used to buy the ticket can solve a lot of problems, apart from using it for the pleasure it can be used to build research institutions especially in developing countries fund a non governmental organization that helps rural areas or even sponsor individuals to school. I keep on asking myself why is that expensive because the owners are already really rich and the money they spent can be regenerated so why not make it less expensive?

  • accomplished_frog | Beit Hanoun Prep Girls A School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 02 Nov 2022

    First, I will spend 450,000 dollars to donate an amount to orphans' homes and cover their needs, and I will complete the rest of the amount in traveling to a country I want and would like to visit. In addition, I will turn my house into a large villa overlooking the sea, and the remaining amount I will donate to the poor
    Secondly, if I will buy a ticket to space, I like it and want it very much, because space is one of the sciences that I want to know the most.
    Should everyone have the opportunity to travel to space, in my opinion, to know what is outside the scope of this earthly world? It will be beautiful to know what God has created in his creation.

  • exhilarated_elderberry | Cheam Fields Primary Academy | United Kingdom 02 Nov 2022

    I would spend it on plants and food because that is very necessary for humans.
    No I would not buy a ticket to go to space because space is a bit scary to me because there are black holes and they can suck you up. I think every person has the chance to go to space, they just need to work really hard and need to learn how to control the rocket.

  • shy_lake | Alkhansaa Prep Co Ed School B | Occupied Palestinian Territory 02 Nov 2022

    Everyone dreams of money, and the question I would ask everyone is;
    If you have 450000 $ , what would you do with the money?
    Will you believe it?
    Will you do charity work? Or will you spend it only on yourself? .From my point of view, I will not buy a space ticket. I live in Gaza City, which suffers from many problems, lack of food and health resources, and unemployment.I will contribute to building hospitals to treat patients and develop small projects for young people. I will help the needy and build institutions for orphans to take care of them.

  • committed_dove | Gaza Prep B Girls School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 02 Nov 2022

    * What can you buy for $450,000 where you live? What will you spend on?
    I will divide the total into 4 parts
    1/ He deducted $11,250 and allocates it to the needy and the poor as zakat.
    2/ The rest of the amount is 438,750 dollars, and I take 138,750 dollars to improve my social situation in terms of housing and living, such as buying and equipping a new house and a private car.
    3/ I invest 250 thousand dollars in establishing a factory for one of the commodities required by my country.
    4/ $50,000 left, so I will buy gold and put it in the bank as a reserve to support my project.
    * Would you buy a ticket to go to space? Why and why not?
    Quite simply, I do not buy and do not go, because I do not have any ingredients to help me implement this idea, and apart from that, I am a person who does not like the unknown and space, a large unknown world, while if I go there too, my life will be in danger.
    * Should everyone have the opportunity to go into space? Why and why not?
    no .
    I would not advise anyone to go there for the same reasons and it may vary from person to person.

  • polite_football | St. Andrew Kaggwa Gombe High school | Uganda 02 Nov 2022

    With all that money , I could buy land in which I will build a hospital from which many needy people can be treated from.
    Personally , I would never buy a ticket to go to space because I consider that as a waste of money . Like can you imagine that someone can spend $450,000 on just going to space instead of using that money for charity whereby many different people around the world will benefit from it.
    I also don't think that every one really needs an opportunity to go to space because going to space is really not considered as a necessity in ones life as compared to receiving good and quality health care services ,education services and so on. I think we should also consider the possible challenges of going to space which may include ;
    1.Starvation on people once they run out of food
    2.Suffocation of people once they run out of oxygen
    3.Sudden accidents in the mechanism
    4.And not to forget that their is no one to turn to once out there so incase of an emergency it will be hard to get help
    5.We better not forget that we really do not know what is out their in space so i suggest that we can follow the old saying that goes that 'Curiosity killed a cat' invented by Ben Jonson.

  • successful_horse | Alkhansaa Prep Co Ed School B | Occupied Palestinian Territory 02 Nov 2022

    1. With all my respect for all religions, cuz I'm Muslim I have to donate for a poor people and who need help. And I will build mosque for Muslims people. Then of course I will help my family and I will leave some money for myself.
    2. I really love space and that's one of my dreams so absolutely I will buy a ticket for a space.
    3. For me I think no cuz there is people wana go to the space but they are don't have any information or experience and that will be dangerous.
    ~So that's my opinion and I hope for anybody love space go and see it 💗

  • spirited_snow | Alkhansaa Prep Co Ed School B | Occupied Palestinian Territory 02 Nov 2022

    My ambitions are great and many, but if I have 450,000 thousand dollars, I will benefit from it. The first thing I will do is to donate a third of the amount, and I will travel to space or to Jordan to achieve my ambition.
    But space travel is not necessary for all people, as some of us cannot afford the cost or are not obligated at all. I hope everyone will use his money wisely.

  • tolerant_sea | Alkhansaa Prep Co Ed School B | Occupied Palestinian Territory 02 Nov 2022

    I can do a project that benefits the youth and benefits the community, such as building a factory to employ manpower, and we spend a little bit on unemployment, and I work to build a house in Gaza and help build houses for the poor Note: I can help others
    I will not buy the ticket because it needs very large sums, and a person can follow space in space.

  • unique_reality | Alkhansaa Prep Co Ed School B | Occupied Palestinian Territory 02 Nov 2022

    If I had $450,000 I would spend them on: First of all I would build some houses for the poor or donate them to people who need help or I could fix rubbish things in my city to make it better Also if I had the chance to buy a ticket to go to space I would definitely agree and the reason is that I I had always wished to go to space when I was a child and now I hope so because my dream is to join NASA in America for space so that I can go to space one day. About space, so my dream is to go to space to discover what is in it, what is the depth of space, and are there other planets other than the ones we know or not? This is a reason why I want to go to space. Also, I think that everyone has the opportunity to go to space, but according to the costs of the trip, because there are some poor countries that cannot afford the cost, but it is the rights of people to go if they agree, it is possible that one of them does not agree

  • terrific_acorn | Rhemaville Christian Academy | Nigeria 02 Nov 2022

    If I had $450,000, I would donate the money to charity or use it to fund any NGO or orphanage. In my opinion, space should only be for research and discovery and not just a fun experience or a short trip. I am no hater though, I just think that money serves better uses for humanity at large than it does for individuals. Here's my point, a lot of people need money to survive while some people just need it to thrive. Why not use the money to serve a much-needed purpose than just enjoyment?

  • terrific_acorn | Rhemaville Christian Academy | Nigeria 02 Nov 2022

    I agree that space is entitled to everyone, even those who cannot afford space travel. However, I encourage space travel only if it is for a beneficial purpose to mankind and not just for individuals.

  • glorious_lake | Alkhansaa Prep Co Ed School B | Occupied Palestinian Territory 02 Nov 2022

    With this amount, I would not prefer buying a ticket to go to space, but rather use it for other things that benefit me and others in developing my country, Gaza, because its people have suffered from abuse, neglect and destruction of homes, and some of them are homeless looking for food and housing. I want to help them as much as I can build houses or A mosque for prayer and worship, distributing food to the needy and helping in paving roads and restoring and repairing destroyed houses. Or it is possible to build an entire project that employs a large percentage of unemployment in my community of both sexes and provide what they need Or establishing an association for people with special needs and the elderly, or building a hospital that benefits everyone

  • respectful_music | Alkhansaa Prep Co Ed School B | Occupied Palestinian Territory 02 Nov 2022

    Honestly, for 450 thousand dollars, I will buy the 4000 boxes of support boxes that would ideally contain food and medications for needy families. Because there are a lot of families out there that are starving and suffering from lack of proper health care and lack of medicines, for only one reason which is their poverty.

    But for whether everyone should have the opportunity to go to space, I would agree because there are people, like me, who would like to fill their highly desired fondness for Space Exploration even if they are in conditions that tell them otherwise.

  • brave_forest | Alkhansaa Prep Co Ed School B | Occupied Palestinian Territory 02 Nov 2022

    1-- If I had this amount of money, I would have created my own project and made it successful, and from its profits, I would have donated to the needy, the poor, health and educational centers, people with special needs, especially orphans, to be of help to the country in the future, because in our view and the society’s view they are the future youth who have the capabilities that advance society and push it for the better. Society is a reason for the victory of our state and the achievement of freedom and security

    2_ Yes, I want to buy a ticket to go to space because I have been curious from a young age about the beautiful and wonderful things in space such as planets and stars. God Almighty gave me and thanked him for these blessings and I hope one day to go to explore space

    3--From my point of view, no, not all humans have the motivation and the ability to go through this arduous journey, but it is better for people to know the wonders and manifestations of God's power so that they can contemplate and imagine this universe and its great things and even build in their minds many questions, for example, is it possible to live in space and how Is he beautiful and what is the use of his presence?

  • memorable_cookie | Mayflower Centre | Romania 03 Nov 2022

    Right now, I have no interest in buying a ticket to space, because there are many problems on earth already. There are so many wars! If the countries can't make peace on earth, then how are they going to work together without arguing? If the scientists will find, for example some gas on Mars, will all the countries agree on how to share it, without another war?

  • fun_rainforest | Mayflower Centre | Romania 03 Nov 2022

    What would I buy for $450,000 where I live? What would I spend it on? Personally, I would not buy a ticket to travel into space because the world would not become a better place if I were to go to space. Instead, I would buy 450,000 trees for the Amazon rainforest because we will have more oxygen and resources. Everyone will benefit from that, not just me because we could make wooden homes for poorer people that can't afford normal homes. Furthermore, endangered species of animals from the rainforest will have a home to live in. There will also be cleaner air for us to breathe. Would you do something that will only benefit you or something that will benefit the whole world?

  • illuminated_chameleon | Mayflower Centre | Romania 03 Nov 2022

    1/What would you buy for $450000?What would you spend it on?
    I would use the money for 4000 aid boxes for families in need because what is the point of colonizing space, if we cannot live in a decent way on Earth? If we would spend money colonizing space instead of helping humans on Earth, then people would die of starvation both in Space and on Earth. In my opinion , we should first make life good on Earth, and then colonize space.

    2/. Would you ever buy a ticket to go to space? Why or why not?
    No, because that money could be used for better purposes as mentioned above. Of course, I would love to go to space, but I think in the future it will become cheaper and will worth the money.

    3/Should anyone have the opportunity to go into space? Why or why not?
    No, because space condition can damage people's health, and there can be accidents. Also, because a large number of spaceships would pollute Earth a lot. I think for now only a small number of scientists or researchers should be able to explore space, not the public.

  • incomparable_armadillo | Mayflower Centre | Romania 03 Nov 2022

    1. With $ 450000 I would buy food for people that suffer from starvation and medicine for hospitals that don't have enough money. The survival of people on our planet should be a priority as it is important for us to protect our people and give them the resources they need.
    2.Would you ever buy a ticket to space?
    I wouldn't buy a ticket to space because it is expensive and I could do other things with that money. For example, I think the money could be used to feed people in underdeveloped countries. Or even in countries like mine, Romania, where people in the countryside struggle.
    3. Should everyone have the opportunity to go in space?
    I think that rockets use too much resources, so if everyone would go to space the resources of Earth would deplete. So for the moment the answer is no.
    How else could we use the money used to build rockets?

  • amicable_buffalo | Shouka Prep Girls School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 03 Nov 2022

    What I can buy for $400,000 is aid boxes containing food and medicine for poor families. I think that poverty is one of the global crises that need careful consideration. This could satisfy the basic needs of poor families and children such as healthy food, and suitable clothes. As for flights and flying into space, it depends. I could buy a ticket to go to space to enjoy the magical view of universe. Yet, I will donate to the poor because feeding poor children is more human than needing a trip.
    Everyone can take a ticket for the pilots of space, but for people of fame and money, but the poor cannot or can donate to them, but not everyone of them because some of them have a special condition such as (fear - vomiting - diseases).

  • generous_lime | Bal Bharati Public school A | India 03 Nov 2022

    If I had $450,000 to spend, I would first consider spending the money into educating myself with knowledge which might help me innovate new things and the things which could solve a more viable problem of the world.

    I would surely buy a ticket to the space when we are able to make or find a habitable planet for human beings and colonalise it.

    The people who admire to go to space as to explore their interests should have the opportunity to go into space but putting everyone in space will pollute space as the humans did with Earth.

  • enlightened_honeydew | Bal Bharati Public school A | India 03 Nov 2022

    I would buy 3000 aid boxes containing food and medicine for a family in need and save the rest of the money for future .

    I would not buy a ticket to go to space because I think there are many researches to be done , discoveries and technologies to be discovered yet . I may buy a ticket to go to space in future when the technology is more advanced and we have found more interesting things about space and about life on it . When it may have become a more safer journey .

    Yes , everyone should have the opportunity to go to space as everyone is curious to find about the outer world - space and visit there . Every person wants to gain more knowledge and discover extraordinary things .

    I would not buy a ticket to go to space because there are so many problems where I live and I would prefer to solve those problems if I had the money. For instance flooding, over the years in Nigeria flooding has become a major problem; if i had this kind of money I would be able to change a lot of things in the area of flooding. A flood is a natural disaster which occurs due to heavy rainfall and poor drainage systems in communities and the citizens worsen the situation by building structures carelessly without permission from the local government which endangers their own lives. People also dump refuse in drainage systems which clog them and increase the chances of flooding.
    Flooding is not just a problem in Nigeria but globally, I would solve the problems that are associated with flooding and other sustainable development issues here on earth before travelling to space.

    When we hear the word money, it comes to our minds about everything we dream about of food, travel and hiking, and we will not think of simple things that may change our lives and others around us, so first of all I buy a car that works with renewable energy and buy what I need to be I have enough education, and I also donate part of the amount to hospitals and charities

    If I have the chance to go, I will go, because the opportunity has come and I must not pass it up, as I have in my mind a lot of ideas that will help the world like can we learn while we are there, or die of diseases we don't know come from space, and that's how I will benefit the world through these experiences

  • insightful_science | Bomas Academy | Nigeria 03 Nov 2022

    If I had $450,000, I would use the money to travel the world looking for superior leadership systems in countries where the economy is elaborate and well built . I would then spend another fraction of the money implementing those leadership systems in areas like electricity which is suffering from low funding and poor quality equipment our power stations for example the Nigerian Electricity where the tariffs were below the normal cost, metering was miserably inadequate, billing was impoverished, revenue collection was very low, and power theft uncontrolled.
    Another example is our water system especially our dams , there was once a time when we wanted to build a dam the Dasin Hausa Dam but unfortunately, the funds were unavailable and sadly the dam not finished. This still
    affects us today causing floods in Nigeria and West Africa as a whole, so I would spend the rest of the money finishing the dam and ending the suffering of so many people.

  • warmhearted_attitude | Bomas Academy | Nigeria 03 Nov 2022

    Yes, everyone should have an opportunity to go to space because:
    In my opinion, when people of different races, domination, and so on go to space they get different opportunities to learn and explore many more things about space, for example, people who go to space will be able to learn about the different medical research going on there. If more people get opportunities to go to space, we will be able to help treat people and help doctors know what to do to be able to treat sick people in the hospital. That means they will bring more information to the hospital.
    Secondly, people can also go to outer and see things for themselves that is to say that every piece of information gotten is first-hand, unfiltered, and gotten directly from the source, rather than watching things online or on the television. Also, they can contribute their time and money to see how they can help the situation we are going through now.
    Thirdly, when people go to space they get to see how things work out there (in space), and at least see a star and a satellite.
    Lastly, people should go to space so that everyone can be able to explore the galaxy and add a little of what they have to help save the situation faced in their part of the world.

  • loving_technology | Bomas Academy | Nigeria 03 Nov 2022

    I will not buy a ticket to space. But why should people go to space if it causes a lot of money? For me I will use the money to change situations in my country like insecurity, climate change ,and flooding, the money can also be use to build houses for the homeless and build schools for the people in different part of my country, so people can go to school and learn more thing about the world and they also can get a chance to participate in the Global Conversation.

  • lovely_song | Bomas Academy | Nigeria 03 Nov 2022

    My perspective on money, money, money, is that I would like to buy a lot of things to improve my country so that my country would benefit from that same money. If I had such amount of money, I would do many things for my country Nigeria, we have different problems such as corruption, floods resulting in the destruction of peoples' property which has caused so much damage to my country Nigeria. Our leaders need to help us get more facilities and get back the properties lost.

  • positive_road | Bomas Academy | Nigeria 03 Nov 2022

    $450,000 is a lot of money for sub saharan countries whose primary need is not space exploration. I rather buy houses for the ones who cannot have access to good houses, and provide free medical facilities, pipe borne water, free education, job generating industries as well as creating awareness for information and communication technology awareness.

  • eloquent_concept | Gaza Prep B Girls School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 03 Nov 2022

    What can I buy with 450 dollars in my country?
    In fact... Some view happiness as the material things that we possess, so you find one seeks what can be called material satisfaction, which is by spending to buy things that one may not actually need,
    However, it is better for a person to spend money on things that contribute to perpetuating his happiness rather than spending it on things that bring him only temporary happiness, or spending it on things that help in the development of his society.. If we look closely, we will find that ignorance is one of the most important reasons for the deterioration of society. Therefore, I will donate part of my money to support the education of the ignorant groups in society and thus we may move to another idea, which is poverty. We may find people who build their projects with the sweat of their brow, but no one supports these projects. How do you know that these projects may tip the scales! This may guarantee great progress for the society.. Also, I can allocate part of the money to develop tourist sites in my country or restore something. Thus, I would ensure the growth of tourism in the community... and an investment that leads to economic prosperity!


    Should I buy a ticket to go to space?
    Like I said before, it's a chance for a change! Even if it was a dangerous experiment, but I will take all necessary measures for safety, so from now on I can learn more and more about space..and add newer information about space to my old information! But on the other hand, I think that space should remain outside the scope of the logic of commercial profit, because of the huge pollution it causes to the environment, that is, it should be limited to scientific research and to the general interest of humanity.

    I do not think that everyone deserves the opportunity.. I do not mean to differentiate between others.. but it is the opportunity of a lifetime.. It may change life tremendously.. so it is better to send experienced people because they have understanding minds who can perform an experiment on any other planet or on the moon through it. They can discover something new.. They do not necessarily have to be astronauts or studied in the field of space, but I mean those who make a great effort to succeed in the future.. This can motivate others to be attached to the study of space and they can also develop something new!

  • radical_coconut | Castle Mead Academy | United Kingdom 03 Nov 2022

    Solving the problem with the rich people, I think that they don't need to invest into the poor people on the street. They would need a house, a hot meal and a good life in the world. Would the people that are interested in the problem with poor people agree with me?

  • opinionated_grasshopper | Castle Mead Academy | United Kingdom 03 Nov 2022

    i would use the 450000 to buy real estate as the housing market appreciates quite alot and rent would also likely bring in money for where i live i could get 5 flats which are quite efficient for creating cashflow with the median price of 80000 i would also have 50000 left over meaning allowing me to get my next property easier or my finance it yes i would in fact buy a ticket to space as it is an experience and im my opinion experiences are worth alot more that than people think and yes experiences are what makes us human it is truly necessary as humans

  • lovable_orca | Castle Mead Academy | United Kingdom 03 Nov 2022

    I believe that when rich people decide that a space ticket is better than giving money to a charity or just helping the earth in general it is immoral. Why do they want to see the Earth that they aren't helping when they are on it? It's quite literally the rich feeding themselves, capitalism at its finest!

  • amazing_effort | Futures Hurghada Language School | Egypt 03 Nov 2022

    About buying a ticket to go to space, if I have the kind of money that would buy that ticket. Absolutely, yesss. I would never miss the chance of going to space and exploring the universe, seeing how the solar system planets revolve around the sun and how they look like? Also, knowing how big is those planets, stars and the sun considering to humans? Really, every time I study science. I wonder if those astrological creatures are real or not and how amazing is their functions.

  • flowing_jambul | Bal Bharati Public school A | India 03 Nov 2022

    If I ever get a chance to buy a ticket to go to space I'll surely grab the life time opportunity. How cool would it be to actually go to the other world and experience everything possible we have read about. Feeling ourselves weightlessly floating to actually be on the moon viewing other celestial bodies with our own eyes and capturing it forever.

  • decisive_reality | Bal Bharati Public school B | India 03 Nov 2022

    So this question is certainly the best one till now! If I get a chance to win 450,000$, I would rather keep the money in bank and research/develop my idea first in order to progress it well in the field of astro chemistry. Furthermore, as soon as my idea is confirmed with appropriate steps, I would build a rocket space station for launching. To be honest, I think that everyone should get opportunity to travel to space but, it is their sole choice to consider it and agree with the specific term.

  • spirited_thought | Lyons Hall Primary School D | United Kingdom 03 Nov 2022

    If ever earn $450,000 ( which I think is impossible for me ) I would keep $150,000 , which I would convert into pounds, to my family and I , give at least $200,000 to charity as i will never need that much money and I would use the rest of the money for my own education or job.
    I would not buy a ticket to space because firstly, why would should I go to space? I know it will be amazing but I could just look at pictures from the internet. This is wasting money .Secondly, it is risky as you could all of a sudden loose air or run out of fuel and there are many dangerous things that could occur on the journey.
    I highly agree that everyone should have a opportunity to fly up to the stars . The price for a ticket should be reduced so everyone can have a chance.

  • sensible_impression | Shouka Prep Girls School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 03 Nov 2022

    Everyone should have the opportunity to go to space to explore this hidden world as it is evidence of the Creator’s ability and opens horizons for young people to unleash their ideas and creativity to discover this hidden world. Creativity is not linked to money. How many inventors and scientists came out of the poorest environments. This amount can be spent to support research centers to find a cure for childhood cancers, which claim the lives of millions of children around the world annually. The future of children is in their ability to explore and invest in space. Investing in people is always the best investment.

  • committed_dove | Gaza Prep B Girls School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 03 Nov 2022

    What can you buy for $450,000 where you live? What will you spend it on?
    Well, in fact, I will build an orphanage in my country and put all orphaned children into wars and conflicts.

    Would you buy a ticket to go to space? Why and why not?
    Honestly, I don't buy because I'm afraid of every move that happens, like flying, lack of gravity, etc.
    Should everyone have the opportunity to go into space? Why and why not?
    On the one hand, I say yes, and on the other, I say no.
    Yes, because everyone should think of the Creator's creations in creating the vast universe.
    And I say no, probably due to circumstances of a person just like me.

  • radical_hedgehog | Bal Bharati Public school A | India 03 Nov 2022

    Probably, instead of having fun only by myself I would whole heartedly help my dear landsman who are in actual need of this money. I would definitely have a desire to go for a fantastic space voyage, feeling myself weightless and what not so special characters of it, but
    These things stand more importance in my life. I would like to charity to all the poor ones who actually need food, cloth, and shelter. Organize various seminars and the primary education for all the girls in rural and semi-rural area who usually drop out. It is because being educated is essential.
    I would make a shelter home for the migrants in cities like Mumbai and Delhi as they are populated cities and a lot of migrants come in hope of work, for a chance to earn and struggle for living, also during the covid era I felt immense pain when I saw how migrants had to move immediately to their village hometown and many had to starve to death which was quite aching.

    As a person, if I had 450,000$, I could do alot of projects, especially in Gaza strip, where I could desperately develop, I could build a residential city for poor people who have no income source nor home, we could also go back to solar power, and open factories that need labor and employ as many workers and graduates as possible to eliminate unemployment in Gaza strip.

  • ambitious_turtle | Mayflower Centre | Romania 04 Nov 2022

    In my country the biggest problem is that in countryside we don’t have schools and it’s so hard to live a normal life and with the money i would donate a big part of them.
    For now i wouldn’t buy a ticket to space but in the future when it will get cheaper maybe I’ll think more about it
    I think that in the future we will have the opportunity because people will get used to having trips in space like a normal vacation

  • fun_strawberry | Mayflower Centre | Romania 04 Nov 2022

    In my country I could buy food & drinks clothes and toys for poor people who need money and who are living on the streets. For example I hate how some schools are so poor and don’t have toilets and I think this should be improved and the government should do something about that.

    No, I wouldn’t buy a ticket to space because it seems very scary to me to go into space and I am afraid of it.

    Not everyone should have the opportunity to go into space, because it would be really dangerous for people if they don’t even have experience. I think scientists should go to space because they have the knowledge and they can discover new things.

  • coherent_banjo | Mayflower Centre | Romania 04 Nov 2022

    - What could you buy for $450,000 where you live at? What would you spend it on?

    If I had $450,000 in my home country, Romania, I would heavily invest into digitalization. So I would donate money for modern equipment to hospitals, schools and other important facilities which lack modern equipment. People in Romania have to queue and waste a lot of their time for all sorts of things. My mom, who works as an office worker, has poor equipment to do her job properly and also my dad, who works for concerts, also has pretty bad equipment to do his job.

    - Would you ever buy a ticket to go to space? Why or why not?

    I do find space very interesting and I would love to travel but since it's a new technology that has just has been discovered , I'd rather wait a little longer till it gets more safe and cheaper. Why would I waste a lot of money now when I can wait a few years for the price do go down?

    - Should everyone have the opportunity to go into space? Why or why not?

    I don't think everyone should have the opportunity to go space. I feel like people who have the knowledge about space and know what lies in it should be able to go to space. People with little to no knowledge might just waste an opportunity for actual scientists who have the knowledge about it to go to space. I feel like in a few years after we've gathered enough information about space, for example
    finding other resources that we're currently lacking in our modern world because of the recent conflicts and wars, then we can let other people have the opportunity to go to space.

  • inspiring_shrimp | Mayflower Centre | Romania 04 Nov 2022

    In my opinion you can do something more useful with that amount of money.
    With that amount of money I would invest in the hospitals from my country. My mom is a doctor and she tells me that she would be scared to be a patient because of the conditions in there.
    The beds aren't in good condition and neither is the equipment. The sanitary conditions are not the best because they don't have the materials. Most of the personel miss their appointments because they have too much work to do.
    I would invest in this domain because health is our most important thing.
    I wouldn't buy a ticket into space because I find it useless. I don't see a useful reason for the public to go to space more than just to have a great experience. But the scientists have the knowledge to do something useful out there. They can provide us GPS.
    Anyways not everyone should go to space because some people might be dangerous or have health issues and this wouldn't have any benefits.

  • serious_beetle | Mayflower Centre | Romania 04 Nov 2022

    If I would have $450,000 I would buy a house outside Bucharest where I wouldn’t have the noise of the city and I can relax well. The rest of the money I will donate to a charity and to the bad Romanian hostpitals to renovate them.

    I would never buy a ticket to space because I don’t think it’s a good idea to make things without knowing how to do them.

    I don’t think everyone should have the opportunity to go into space because it can be dangerous if you don’t have enough knowledge to do it. Some people might not go into space even if they have the knowledge because they may be bad people and do bad things intentional and destroy the very expensive equipment.

  • victorious_leaf | Mayflower Centre | Romania 04 Nov 2022

    Would you ever buy a ticket to go to space? Why, why not?
    I wouldn't buy a ticket to go to space because:
    1. I don't consider that I have enough knowledge to do that so I would be in danger.
    2. It costs a lot of money and i can't afford it.
    3. So many Earth resources are used for a flight to space.
    If I had the money to buy a ticket to go there I still wouldn't. I think it is too risky and it isn't worth it for me. I won't make any revolutionary discovery that would improve the knowledge about the amaizing world of the space.

    Should everyone have the opportunity to go into space? Why, why not?
    1. I think that not everyone should have the opportunity to go to space because not everyone is trained to do that.
    2. The people that would go there maybe will do a catastrophe and who knows what would happen.
    I think that not everyone should have the opportunity to go to space because it's too dangerous and so it isn't worth it.

  • diplomatic_attitude | Futures Hurghada Language School | Egypt 04 Nov 2022

    Would you ever buy a ticket to go to space ? Why or why not ?
    The price of a ticket to go to space is nearly five hundred thousand dollars so in my opinion some people would by a ticket while others will not .If there is a rich man and he wanted to visit the space, so of course he will buy one ticket because spending all this amount of money will not affect his life with any thing .

    But if someone does not have this
    big amount of money so he will not buy a ticket or if he had only the five hundred thousand so he will not buy a ticket too because he worked for many years to save this amount of money so he can use it in many things such as buying many things for poor people or he can buy many things that will help him in his life and many other things.

  • invigorated_camel | Mayflower Centre | Romania 04 Nov 2022

    What could I do with $450,000 in my country? Well, I would help the dog shelter because here in Romania there are lots of dogs that need a home. Some of the dogs are in shelters that they aren’t comfortable or it doesn’t fell like home in shelters, they are not taken care of, how some ,,animals lovers’’ take care of them and feed them, wash them and maybe walk them…
    In Romania we have people that have dogs just for fun or for the picture and they let them out of the house and then the dogs can be scared an because of that they can be very aggressive with other dogs or with the humans and there are cases that people were bitten by dogs that were breed (like pitbulls that are very aggressive or rottweilers and more).
    Would you ever buy a ticket to go to space? Well , if i had that kind of money like billions of dollars 💵 i would probably buy a ticket to go to space because i am that type of person that is very curious… and i really would buy it but just for fun and to see if it’s something special .And if money was limited i wouldn’t see the point of buying a ticket to go to space… and you can put the question like that ,, Why would you invest in a ticket to space that cost like half a million dollars?’’ when there are so many problems people face every day…🧐❓
    Should everyone have the opportunity to go into space? If I have to answer that I would probably say that yeah why not … i don’t see a bad thing that all the people should go to space…nowadays not everyone can afford a ticket to go to space…😣

  • lively_armadillo | Mayflower Centre | Romania 04 Nov 2022

    First of all, according to the first question, it is worth considering that $450.000 is a lot of money. If you’d randomly ask me now what I’d do with that amount of money, I wouldn’t know or I would say I’d simply buy things for myself or my family. But it’s just not like that. I thought about the people who live in old buildings that the gouverment wouldn’t do anything about. Lots of people live in there and in any second those buildings could catch fire or the building may fall apart, since they were built in the communism, which was a long time ago. My teacher told me once about the London incident, where, because of the stale and cheap materials, the building caught fire and a lot of people died. Overall, it may be said I would give this money to help my town by giving this money to the gouverment to help poor people and recondition those buildings.

  • diplomatic_idea | Mayflower Centre | Romania 04 Nov 2022

    What could I buy for $450,000? I think that the money would be used for saving and feeding stray dogs. As a pet lover, it is heartbreaking to see stray dogs that suffer. There is this stray dog that lives next to the apartment building I live in, he is adorable, his name is Bobita and everyone of my neighbours brings him food, he is always excited to see us. I would love to help other dogs, just like Bobita.

    As for buying a ticket to space, my curiosity would say yes but my anxiety is like a big red “stop” sign. I am usually really passionate about space and planets but big space and darkness scare me to death. But still, if I had the money, I would absolutely go because it can be a once in a life time opportunity.

    I think that everybody should get this opportunity at some point. It may seem scary now, but exploring space will allow for new discoveries. We don’t know what those discoveries will be or how they will be used. But, like the great voyages of discovery, which took place a few centuries ago, show us, people will make use of new discoveries. Something that the world is in dire need of right now is more resources. Maybe this is something that we could get from space?

  • joyous_guitar | St. Andrew Kaggwa Gombe High school | Uganda 04 Nov 2022

    I would buy some clothing and books for the unfortunate children in my country because I feel like it's a human right to have access to knowledge and clothing. Then I would give the remaining money to the government of my country to help buy medical supplies and supply them to clinics and hospitals around the country.

    Yes, I'd love to buy a ticket to go to space because I would want to experience how being weightless feels like plus it would be interesting to see space with your own eyes.

    Should everyone go to space?
    my answer is yes, everyone should have a chance to go to space and experience a new atmosphere and it's always good to experience new things

  • jolly_vegetable | St. Andrew Kaggwa Gombe High school | Uganda 04 Nov 2022

    I think people should visit space because without space programs , we wouldn`t have GPS , accurate weather prediction, solar cells, or the ultraviolet filters in sunglasses and cameras. There`s also medical research happening in space right now that could cure diseases and prolong human lives and experiments can`t be done on earth.

    I would spend that money on the needy for example buying food , clothes, and also I would build the houses for those who don`t have homes.

  • amusing_measurement | Bal Bharati Public school B | India 04 Nov 2022

    I would definitely love to go to space if I had a chance to, it's an opportunity that's not worth passing up. But I won't like to go to space right now. $450,000 is a massive amount for spending for a one-time experience to space and it's not the best use of that money.
    When we hear about money we usually think about expensive clothes, foreign trips, power, food etc but instead of spending it there I would rather use that money for more long-term happiness like buying a home from it. I would also use it for helping people in need, making Earth a better place to live and mainly I would invest that money in developing human capital. I would help people learn more about space so that in the near future they can create even safer, cheaper and environment-friendly rockets so that then even a normal middle-class person can afford to go to space. And hence I want to conclude that everyone should have the opportunity to go to space but not right now. Right now we should invest our money in developing our own planet and in helping people learn more about space so that they create even better rockets and in the future, we all can go together.

  • protective_strategy | Bal Bharati Public school A | India 04 Nov 2022

    I would create orphans for the poor children whose parents have left them or they are no more by the money provided . i would like to invest some of it in developing our nation and education . this would encourage children to participate . if I ever get a ticket to space i would definitely go because no one would miss such an amazing and learning opportunity . I would experience the whole universe from my little eyes , i would be floating due to gravitation , i would be seeing all the celestial bodies around me and will enjoy and learn the hardest . No everyone doesn't have the opportunity to visit space because not everyone can afford and secondly many people don't have interest or they are not so daring . I personally feel that if whosesoever gets the opportunity he/she should not miss it ...

  • entrepreneurial_swan | Rex Mill Middle STEM School E | United States of America 04 Nov 2022

    I would probably buy a house and a better car for my parents because they're working on trying to get a place to stay, also i would get some shoes for my older brother because he needs more and his foot is to big to fit his older shoes. For my sister i would just get her a car and clothes because she just got her licenses not too long ago, of course i would get me clothes and other things i would like to buy. I would not like to buy a ticket to go to space because i have very bad anxiety and i would get scared out of my mind, i would think the oxygen would go out and my helmed would burst. It's here and there with having everyone going out into space because some people are not ready to go into space and some people might be more mature to go into space.

  • attentive_physics | Govt. Shuhada-e-APS Model Girls High School B | Pakistan 04 Nov 2022

    I completely agree with that .many children are starving in sudan , Somalia and almost in all developing countries and that money could be used to feed alot of them .

    ## ENERGY:
    Nuclear energy has its impacts but it's for sure better than using fossil fuels. Setting up a nuclear plant is expensive but not as much as a space mission.

    ## Water :
    Many countries in Africa are pure water deficient setting up a purification plant wouldn't be as costly as space missions .

    ## computer facilities:
    Many schools don't have internet or computers in this growing world every one should have some know how of computers. This can provide thousands of growing people with a computer .

    ## shelter :
    We can create community shelters which can give a shelter to homeless people.

    The list goes on but the point is that if we can solve global problems with that amount of funds we can surely make a change

  • succinct_grape | Rafah Prep A Girls School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 04 Nov 2022

    I agree actually that everyone should have the opportunity to explore space,because we all humans.
    Traveling anywhere is a right we should have it,for me someone wonders how pretty our is from the outside so it will be amazing to see the Galaxies and the planets with go in elaborate system. The idea it self sounds breathtaking but if I had 450,000 dollars,I would not buy a ticket just to see the world from the outside. I would help how don't have home ,money for medicine,ones who don't have food. I would prefer to share this money and give them a chance to change theirlives .

  • lively_wallaby | Bal Bharati Public school A | India 04 Nov 2022

    Where I live we could finish poverty with that much money. Space and science have always been my topic of interest however it feels unfair how some people have millions of dollars for just minutes in space. Whilst others starve to death.


    Yes, technology is important and so is development. However isn’t exploring Planet B pointless if the people on Planet A suffer every, single, day?

    Eventually yes I would buy a ticket to space but only when it’s worth something. Right now going to space just means roaming the outer space in a shuttle and getting the “experience”, which if you ask me for that amount of money, is useless.

    Everyone deserves to go to space if they want to but logically it is not possible. Flying to the outer space is not a child’s play. It requires skill, time, effort and above all- money! I understand how not everyone can afford it but then sending anyone who wishes to go to space is equally unaffordable.

  • blessed_reflection | Rhemaville Christian Academy | Nigeria 04 Nov 2022

    Coming from the second point "would you ever buy a ticket to go to space? Why or why not?"The answer is god-forbid. Actually there are more reasons one should go to space such as exploring yourself on what you have been taught in school about space. Left to me i would never do that cause there are lot of probabilities that may occur on the person reaching to the space or their arrival to earths such things like explosion of spacecraft which will lead to the extinction of that person or group of persons and when such things occur the money has been wasted so left to me it's better to invest the money on earth and make more riches than embarking on a journey that's risk and deadly. So my answer is absolutely not.

  • ingenious_library | Start-Rite Schools | Nigeria 04 Nov 2022

    Should everyone have the opportunity to go into space? Why or why not?
    In my opinion, not everybody should be able to go to space. This is because a large number of civilians do not have the proper training or know the right things to do when going into space. This could cause damage to some of the smaller structures of space that reside in bigger and more stable structures. The difference in the atmosphere might also cause innocent people to loose their lives because it it so much more different from what they're body has adapted to.

    Would you ever buy a ticket to go to space? Why or why not?
    I would not buy a ticket to space. Not because I'm not interested in it, I actually love learning more about the galaxies and cosmos, but because I'm quite frightened. It would be really scary going into a completely different environment where the air is not breathable. It would be difficult to adjust to wearing a space helmet just to stay alive.

  • crafty_owl | Bal Bharati Public school A | India 04 Nov 2022

    I wouldn't spend all of my $450,000 together. I would think of long term and a sustainable future. I would connect with a trader or investor who would guide me on how to use this money efficiently and grow it. Other money I would spend on is for my family.
    -I would never buy a ticket to go to space only because I think there are more discoveries and new inventions to happen. Now is not the right time.
    I would definitely think about this in the future.
    -the people who thrive each day to travel to space should definitely go to space and explore new dimensions of the world and make the world a better place to live in with the amazing discoveries.

  • enthusiastic_computer | Bal Bharati Public school B | India 05 Nov 2022

    1) I can donate this money to different charities and animal shelters because they are the ones who need this money more than me. I can also use this money to join classes for something I want to develop my skills in.

    2) No, I would never buy a ticket to go to space because a single ticket will cost a fortune which someone would need it more than me.

    3) No, not everyone should have the opportunity to go to space because it may cause harm to their health.

    I think I would rather not buy a ticket to space. With that much money, I can get an admission in an extremely good university, probably go to NASA and become an astronaut or a physicist. Why would you rather spend money lavishly on just buying a ticket when you can get that ticket for free with a little hardwork and some extra benefits ofcourse!

    For going into space, well, I consider that everyone who wills to and is eligible must be a given a chance to do so. Because, if not everyone who can and want to get a chance , it’s almost like trampling over dreams with your own two feet and then saying that the world is not developing. Chances are important, chances are what define people ,motivate them and probably give us the best leaders/scientists/astronauts/ doctors or even others in the world.

  • champion_camel | St. Andrew Kaggwa Gombe High school | Uganda 05 Nov 2022

    I would agree because...
    People need to see what they are surrounded by. many people stop seeing space on their televisions and hear conversations about space.

    I think that people should be getting opportunities to go to space because there are loads of other parts of the world that are yet to be discovered and it can prove bullies that anyone can do anything if you put your heart and mind to it. For example, girls all around the world are bullied because of their gender and people are saying they can never make it just because they are female but that is completely untrue because there are woman around the world who did extraordinary things for example Malala Yousefzai they youngest person to ever win the Nobel Peace Prize.

    However there are downsides too
    There are people who are dying from salvation, war and conflict.
    Although I'm a male myself, I have the right to address this problem. Woman in Iran are dying because of the police there. Mahsa Amini, a young woman, was badly beaten up by the Moralty police and she eventually died so people in Iran a burning their hijabs because of show what they think of the police's actions but they are still being murdered. People in Pakistan have to start new lives because their homes have been destroyed due to the floods there. They have no food or water and the only way to escape to a new country is by boat which will take a long time.

    Frankly, I do not buy because I am afraid of every step that takes place
    From flight and take off and zero gravity.

    ~ Should everyone have the opportunity to go into space? Why or why not?
    On the one hand, I say yes, and on the other, I say no.
    Yes, because everyone should think and reflect on this vast space and the creativity of the Creator in creating it.
    And I say no, perhaps due to circumstances specific to a person just like me.

  • daring_cherry | St. Andrew Kaggwa Gombe High school | Uganda 05 Nov 2022

    $450,000 is a lot of money I would use it make my life as well as the lives of those around me better through donations to those in need. In my country Uganda, we lack enough facilities like medicine in hospitals and this causes death of many, poor roads that cause fatal accidents and people die everyday due to natural disasters like landslides but even those that survive don't have where to go so I would rather spent that money in giving hand to solve all those problems.This act would show love and humanity.Don't you guys agree?

  • daring_opinion | Rafah Prep A Girls School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 05 Nov 2022

    450,000 is alot of money and the fact that I don't think you can spend or earn that much money that fast can't be denied. From my country I'll buy as much as I can from science fiction books and with that much money in my hands I'll travel all around the world, visit all the places I dreamed of visiting. I think I will probably spend it on me traveling to natural site.
    Would I ever buy a ticket to go to space ?
    Yes ,I would . I've always loved something called space , stars, planets and blackholes . Looking at space photos from Google is what I did in my free time, but like what if I actually get the chance to see them in real life , who can pass on a opportunity like this?
    I don't think that all people deserve going to space,especially the ones who make fun of it. If they think it's a joke, then they are not worth an adventure like this . A trip like this should be given to someone who will focus, read and study hard and after all of that comes back with great and important information and photos. Not someone who wastes their time and life playing video games.

  • charming_weaver | Shri Natesan Vidyasala Mhss | India 06 Nov 2022

    I perhaps would not invest the entire money in single project. I strongly believe in the phrase, that was taught at our school: Learn - Earn- Return.
    Learn well, Earn Well and Return as much to the society.
    That is what I would do. With whatever money I have, A portion of it, I shall invest in projects that would give me much more returns. So that there is always a free flow of regular income.
    Secondly, I shall invest some of the amount in hand to be of use to the society. Donating for the cause like purchasing medical kit, for education, for disaster management fund and many more.
    Thirdly, I shall spend a portion of the amount in hand to explore this beautiful globe.
    If you ask me whether I would want to travel to space, Nah! I have enough places to explore in this beautiful planet. Let me do that first.
    Having said that for those who would like to explore the life beyond this beautiful planet, I think they should do. And such trips should be made possible and affordable.

    Now, for what Richard Branson spent $450,000 on a ticket to space, I could do a lot of things with that money in my country.

    1. I can buy the latest phones such as the iPhone or travel to many countries, but if I had this money, I would not spend it on these things. I would buy a ticket to go to space to see planets and galaxies and discover what is in space and to answer the questions in my mind because I love space


    2. I believe that everyone should go to space because going in large numbers there will increase research about space. In space there are beautiful things such as planets, galaxies and the sun. There are things that need to be scrutinized for their beauty and they can entertain themselves and discover innovations by visiting space..

    I would spend the money given to me to make it better and plant trees and other nature things
    Everyone should have opportunity to go to space it's doesn't matter about their richness and poorness

  • supportive_philosophy | Govt. Shuhada-e-APS Model Girls High School A | Pakistan 07 Nov 2022

    If I would get $450,000, I would invest some amount.Actually I have a great interest in doing a world tour to discover my planet. I want to see the mysterious places and all the beautiful places wheather a place with mountains and a flowing river or a beach or something related to the modern technology. I want to see all this because I think life is very short and we are not here to have worries instead we should try to explore the mysteries of the God.I also want to discover the traditions of other nations.
    I may or may not buy a ticket to go to space. I may buy it because of my interest in exploration. I wanna do that to see the beautiful galaxies and the interaction of Earth with different planets. At some point, I think I shouldn't buy it because its a very fency trip and it will cost me much. Being a human, I should show some humanity and also the people have right on each other,therefore I should do something for the people like to remove their poverty.
    I think the people who have interest in space exploration should have the opportunity to discover it. Everyone has a right to do the things of their interest.

    In fact, I do not agree, why?
    It is possible that I can use this money in investments and projects that I dream of achieving at this age that will produce profits for me and then through these profits if space is one of my interests, I will travel to it

  • bold_badger | Cheam Fields Primary Academy | United Kingdom 09 Nov 2022

    I think that if I had £450,000 I would probably spend it on aid boxes containing food and medicine for a family in need.I am not saying that I don't care about the trees it's just that there probably going to get chopped down and be a waist of money.

  • appreciative_squid | Adamson Middle School E | United States of America 09 Nov 2022

    What I could buy for 450,000 where I live is a house out of the country or a car. What I would spend it on is maybe a private island or a yacht. I would never buy a ticket to space because I will be very scared ill get stuck or something.

    Yes, I think everyone should have the opportunity to go to space to visit and learn about space but also I think you should do your research about it if you go.

  • smart_poem | Adamson Middle School E | United States of America 09 Nov 2022

    I could buy a new house with that money and maybe some groceries to go in the new house I just bought with $450,000. I would not buy a ticket to go to space because even though space is cool and all I wouldn't want to waste money on something I don't need. Yes, everyone should have an opportunity to go to space because some people when they grow up want to be an astronaut so everyone should have a chance even if they don't want to go.

  • knowledgeable_mango | Adamson Middle School E | United States of America 09 Nov 2022

    something I could buy for 450,000 is a house for sure but i would probably save the money for college
    no i wouldn't buy a ticket to go to space because u age faster in outer space
    i feel like everyone should not go to outer space because i don't know i just think they shouldn't

  • intellectual_effort | Adamson Middle School F | United States of America 09 Nov 2022

    Where I live, we can buy a lot of things for $450,000. The first thing that comes to my mind is a house. With that much I will be able to buy 2 houses in my neighborhood. I will not buy a ticket to go to space I would prefer to somehow get a chance to go to space. I would never buy a ticket because, there is an outnumber amount of things that can go terribly wrong on a trip to space. I feel like if something was to happen to Earth everyone should be able to go to space.

  • cooperative_dolphin | Shouka Prep Girls School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 09 Nov 2022

    What can you buy for $450,000 where you live? What will you spend it on?
    aid and aid aid; Donating money does not detract from our money, but God blesses the money of the person who donates money, feeling cool with money and helping others gives an indescribably beautiful feeling. And God Almighty commanded us to give alms and donate money to the needy ourselves, and to free us from the fire of Hell. Charity, zakat or donation of money is an essential pillar of the Islamic religion.

    Would you buy a ticket to go to space? Why and why not?
    I would like to buy a ticket to go to space because it is a new experience in the universe and galaxy and seeing stars and planets and to increase my culture, knowledge and experience, and because I love to study geology, I want to study the external environment. For me it is a wonderful experience .


    Should everyone have the opportunity to go into space? Why and why not? I think some people make fun of space researchers and their work, sitting in bed eating and drinking, and many websites post about space and its nature, but we really need new scientific explorations every day.
    There are also people who dream of buying a ticket to space, but they are very afraid and say to themselves if we go to space we will die. It is not good for someone to die in the place they have always dreamed of going to, and if there is more going to space, there will be fewer people on earth and there will be problems in the universe and the earth. As we have seen in several Korean films that when astronauts are launched, they die, they do not return to Earth. How sad!

  • blessed_octopus | Adamson Middle School F | United States of America 09 Nov 2022

    What would I do with $450,000?

    First I would give half to my mom that leaves 225,000 next I would go get more things I need such as hygiene then I would go get clothes and shoes next I would go get things for my new room lastly I would go get snacks for me.

    would i ever buy a ticket for space?
    Maybe not i am scared to go to space because it's like how do yk where u just came from and how to get back I am not that smart yes I know all of the sates in alphabet order but i don't know where its located. I would go to space if it was with a professional.

    should everyone get an opportunity to go into space?
    yes i believe everyone should have an opportunity to go into space because say for example a little kid wanted to go to space when he or she got older but was dieing it would not be fair if they did nothing wrong but could not shoot for their dream.

  • compelling_hurricane | Boutcher CofE Primary A | United Kingdom 09 Nov 2022

    I think this space idea is incredible ! I love stuff about outer space and just imagine getting to go there . Also this will help people and many scientists to get to see more about space . It will also help schools if there topic is about outer space !

    Also if i had an opportunity to have 450,000 pounds I would donate some the charity ‘starlight children’s foundation’. Since they looked after me when I was not well .

  • logical_editor | Adamson Middle School G | United States of America 09 Nov 2022

    What could you buy for $450,000 where you live? What would you spend it on?

    If you really put it into thought,you could buy a lot of things.But if you ask me,I'd spend just a little at the local chinese food place and put the rest in my bank account for saving.

    Would you ever buy a ticket to go to space? Why or why not?

    Probably not,certainly,it would cost 5 years of the average American's rent,and I'm not paying all that money,call me cheap if you want it's ok.

    Should everyone have the opportunity to go into space? Why or why not?

    Yes,this could be a form of education,a good form of education.I feel like people should get to know the world(or universe)around them for FREE,but these days,it's all about the money, and I hate that.

  • adept_yuzu | Adamson Middle School G | United States of America 09 Nov 2022

    What I could buy with $450,000, is all my football gear that I will need for next year and where I would live in California. And what I would spend most of my money on is sports gear. And I would never buy a ticket to go to space because it causes too much to see some planets and stars.

  • witty_anteater | Adamson Middle School J | United States of America 09 Nov 2022

    I agree because..................................
    Should everyone have the opportunity to go into space? Why and why not?

    Yes, everyone should have this opportunity to think about this universe and this great creation, and this trip has its positives. One of them is for man to know what is in relation to this universe and what is its size in relation to space, and also this trip is important to know the people who are arrogant and see that they are the greatest just because they have money I tell them that for this universe there is nothing, so make good use of your brains to make better use of your money

    It also has its downsides
    There are many, if not thousands, of people who died of starvation because they did not have a livelihood, and because some of them were devastated by wars and conflicts that made their lives worse, and because people like them spend money just to get special suits and tickets. I have a question, is there no mercy and humanity in these hearts.

  • majestic_dusk | Adamson Middle School H | United States of America 09 Nov 2022

    With 450,000 dollars i would give it to my mother and make her buy a house and things for the house. Yes i would buy a ticket to go to space i always wonder what's in space and if the things scientists are saying are true. Yes i think everyone should have an opportunity to go to space because some people don't have a lot money and they want to go there and some people do have the amount of money and don't want to go to space.

  • dynamic_radio | Rex Mill Middle STEM School E | United States of America 09 Nov 2022

    Would you ever buy a ticket to go to space? Why or why not?

    I would turn down the offer to buy a ticket and go to space because i don't think i would be trained to go to space as in what to do and how to do it. There is a 50% chance that i could survive nor survive.

  • beloved_seahorse | Govt Girls Higher Secondary School | Pakistan 10 Nov 2022

    I am in favour of going to space to see what actually is in space with my own eyes . The idea is very exciting as my name would b written among thosw who had travelled to space i ll travel around my earth nd feel my city school nd classfellows would ve been styding abt spa e nd i would b in space how great it is ! How blessed i would have thinking myself .
    Every one shud have this golden chance .

  • trustworthy_octopus | Govt. Comprehensive Boys High School | Pakistan 10 Nov 2022

    Yes everyone should have opportunity to go in space. It has been a main characteristic of human to explore more about himself and this universe. My answer to second question is that i am fond of exploring new things but if i have 450000$ then i will spend it on poor people of my locality because as a human it is our duty to help other.
    It is a good idea to have a life on planets other that earth because now a days on earth; population has reached to extreme level,there is a big problem of food crisis, undesirable climate changes.

  • outspoken_knowledge | St. Andrew Kaggwa Gombe High school | Uganda 10 Nov 2022

    What can I buy with 450 thousand dollars in my country?!
    When we are asked a question like this, the first thing that comes to our mind is the things we love and need, and we will not care about the rest of the things that may be small, but they are the ones that make the biggest difference. Will everything I buy will benefit me now and in the future?!
    Yes, this is what I need, so the first thing I decide to buy is a very large amount of books and various novels on different topics for 100 thousand dollars in order to be able to cover the largest possible number of residents of my country. Make him aware, as it is said, “If you do not learn how to plant seeds in the ground, the tree will not grow",And so with our society, if we do not make them aware and cultured, our many attempts to progress will not succeed. After this step, I will allocate part of the money to support productive projects inside my country for a number of distinguished people with experience, to make ourselves great with our own hands, and I will contribute another part to cooperation A joint venture with a friendly country in a project, so I will have secured the innovations of my people and neighboring countries, and thus my success in the present and the future.

  • skillful_dragonfly | Shouka Prep Girls School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 10 Nov 2022

    Since I aspire to become a doctor and live in an occupied country that does not have advanced medical devices instead of buying a ticket for 450 thousand dollars to travel to space and also for 90 minutes only, I would like to donate that amount to buy a large number of medical devices for cancer patients because I really see the suffering of cancer patients and what they face It is difficult because cancer patients have to wait many months to get treatment after their diagnosis or either to obtain permission to receive treatment outside Gaza. It is a stressful process that is difficult to predict. Many patients submit more than one request before they can go out. I say why there is no treatment for cancer patients in our country They can be cured quickly instead of going out of the country. All the time it took them to develop this disease, so I would like to donate to cancer patients to treat them faster before the disease progresses. With that amount, I would also like to develop hospitals in my country.

  • glad_bird | Boutcher CofE Primary A | United Kingdom 11 Nov 2022

    Should everyone have the opportunity to go into space? Why or why not?

    Personally, yes, I believe that everyone should have the opportunity to go into space because it does not matter who you are, you just have to be qualified. Also, some people might not want to be astronauts, but it is very good to at least give everyone a chance as some people do want to have this as a job.

  • spectacular_iceberg | Rex Mill Middle STEM School D | United States of America 11 Nov 2022

    If I had 450,000 I would invest in it or use it for the better , as a child I would not need all that money so Most likely I would give it all to my parents , I would live in a decent house and I wouldn't let anyone know how much money I had , I would not spend it on just a house because the house wont help me in the future. If I had a choice to buy a space ticket I would , I would buy this because this could possibly raise my money , if I find something in space that has never been found I could be known and with me already being know from space I could use that fame to go higher in life . I feel like everyone should experience a time to do something they've never done even if its just once like going to space some people are scared of getting lost in space or other reason but I think they should just try and see if they like it , if they don't like it they wont have to do it again . Everyone should try new things even if they don't want to they should still go for it they never know how that event could effect their life .

  • accomplished_frog | Beit Hanoun Prep Girls A School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 11 Nov 2022

    Would you buy a ticket to go to space? Why and why not?
    Yes, firstly, space is one of the areas that inspired me, and secondly, space is about planets, galaxies and a lot of things. When you see it, you think of God's creation.
    She also thinks about how this planet was created and why this planet is not suitable for living, and she explores another life that not many people know about
    In addition to looking at the different sizes between planets and galaxies, distances and distances and what is on each of these surfaces, it's something I admire and enjoy thinking about.

  • insightful_literature | Rex Mill Middle STEM School E | United States of America 11 Nov 2022

    I can buy a shop because there is multiple shops that i'm near that can be flipped into something great for the community.Barber shops, hair salons, nail shops, skate shops, and etc; are very common but what if I can make something unique.This could take lots of time to think about but if its unique it would cost.Not only shops but u could buy a business also I do think that if i spend half of 450,000 dollars I could make double that with the business I own or created.Also the business i make could go on for the future so maybe the business could expand I could get even more money and if i get double 450,000 each year i would get 900,000 a year in 2 years that's more then 1 million every 2 years.So it seems like i can live off of 450,000 in my community.

  • intrepid_bat | Govt. Girls Higher Secondary School B | Pakistan 12 Nov 2022

    Instead of pouring money into the sea to make a tourist sites, it will be better to spend on humanity's collective better future. I will not take any selfish step but will make a space research centre for the young people to make them explore more and more to reach some point of collective advantage.
    I would send someone else who is capable of find some thing new about space instead - because spending should not be for luxury or mere visits - but for furthering explorations.
    Every one should go to space once some thing we get from there. Just to waste resources will not be good option for me.

  • agreeable_didgeridoo | Rafah Prep A Girls School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 13 Nov 2022

    $ 450 thousand Um , I think it is a large amount to buy one ticket , just to travel to space for 90 minutes to feel that you are floating , due the lack of gravity . They have a lot of money and do not know what to do with it , for example , it is possible to donate it to someone who needs help or save this money to use it in time of need

  • champion_spring | Kibeda School | Sudan 13 Nov 2022

    I would buy a huge mansion for me and my family , a modern car , a school so i can help people who dosent have enough money to study , i would build a orphanage so orphans can live there and be looked after , help poor people and the rest i will keep it for myself ( if there is )
    definitely i would buy a ticket to go to space because im interested in space, specially i would love to visit saturn , ( it's impossible but i wish i could )
    No not everyone has an opportunity to go to
    space because some may not be interested in going there , but lets say the majority of people like to , definitely they have to have an opportunity to go there so they can explore more !

  • genuine_technology | Al Reyad Boys Elementary School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 13 Nov 2022

    It's amazing that at the age of twelve I had $450,000 in my hand. This is the retirement money for my school teacher over thirty years of service. Really, I will achieve all my dreams and the dreams of my family instead of getting a plane ticket to outer space because it is not among my goals, at least for the time being. Perhaps in the near future, travel will be less expensive and a great discovery that deserves more adventure.. Most space flights to this day have been limited to walking on the surface of the moon. What do you think if the next discovery is to land on the surface of a planet worthy of adventure, for example..

    In my opinion, to answer the last question. Researcher / researcher / researcher in outer space, our planet, our planet, an external environment.

  • genuine_technology | Al Reyad Boys Elementary School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 13 Nov 2022

    In my opinion, to answer the last question. In my opinion, everyone has different ambitions, and many of them dream of traveling on the surface of our planet first before moving to outer space.. Be sure that the passion pursues only intellectuals, scientists or those looking for the unknown

  • reliable_moment | Rafah Prep Girls | Occupied Palestinian Territory 14 Nov 2022

    450,000 is a really big amount! Therefore, we must make good use of it, for example, we can benefit from it in the best way, which is kindness to the poor and donating a little of it to them, or buying some food and clothes for them as charity. Also, the rest of this money must be used for personal interest, for example, making a party for friends to have a wonderful time with them, or buying a lot and a lot of sweets because they bring happiness and positive energy. And for the place I live in, there is no place to sell tickets for space travel because this is impossible for us to have for many reasons. But if I get the chance to do that, I hope to visit outer space. And I think that this opportunity should not be available to all people according to the conditions in which man lives.

  • jubilant_leaves | Shouka Prep Girls School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 15 Nov 2022

    Money is very very impirtant source and for me , money is an essential thing beacuse it meets our daily needs . All people strive hard and diligently to obtain money in order to provide them and their children with all they need . However , money helps to develop the state , whether it is in economic or political resources . Money is somthing that is not easy to get , and to get money we must work and strive , if there is no money in the world , surely the whole world will collapse.

  • strong_weaver | Shohour Public High School | Lebanon 16 Nov 2022

    .450,000$ is a lot of money, it could buy you a lot of nice things like a big beautiful house or an amazing car. But personally i would spend it on helping the others, so most of it would be donated to the charity to help the hungry cold and people in need, and i would buy a small ordinary house for myself to have a roof over my head.

    .In my opinion i wouldn't buy a ticket space, surely space is a wonderful place with a lot of amazing stuff to see, but it isn't my dream and for that i would prefer to focus on another stuff.

    .I don't think everyone should be able to go to space, sadly as humans destroyed earth they would destroy space too.

  • amazing_effort | Futures Hurghada Language School | Egypt 16 Nov 2022

    About buying a ticket to go to space. From my point of view if I have the kind of money that would buy that ticket. Absolutely yesss. Who is the person that going to reject a chance like this? Not me of course. Why I will agree? Because it's something amazing and fabulous to see the space in real life not in books. To see how the planets look like? How they revolve around the sun? The stars, moons ,other planets and how I will float in the air because of gravity. The universe is something spectacular explore.

  • neat_squid | Ormiston Bushfield Academy | United Kingdom 18 Nov 2022

    People like Richard Branson, Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos should be spending the money they receive from tourist tickets on humanitarian aid, planting trees and saving the world.

    If you were to put one of these three men in a position of poverty and starvation, they would not last because they think money is dispensable.

    I would not buy a ticket to space because it is too much money and there are so many other things that this money could be spent on.

  • eager_seed | Shohour Public High School | Lebanon 18 Nov 2022

    I think everybody should have the opportunity to go to space, because we are all human in same rights ,also it is an exciting opportunity and there are loads of the parts of the world that are yet to be discovered .We all have curiosities for what out there do we should all equally have the opportunity to go space. I think everyone deserves to share some of exciting opportunity and something that bring joy ,but because the cost, it may be years before you could travel.

  • shining_tornado | Rafah Prep Girls | Occupied Palestinian Territory 18 Nov 2022

    Hi, I'm shining_tornado.
    Honestly, when I read the title of the discussion, Money, money, money attracted me!
    I decided to enter the discussion, but now I will answer the questions posed.
    1What could you buy for $450,000 where you live? What would you spend it on?
    In my country, the financial situation is very bad. Having $450,000 is a very large sum, and I must think carefully before I spend it. There are many, many needy families, so I will choose aid boxes that contain food and medicine for a needy family.
    2 Should you ever buy a ticket to go to space? Why or why not?
    Going to space is the dream of every person living on the globe, and one of my wishes is to go to space, but I think that buying a ticket is very expensive, and I will use the money for what benefits me and others.
    3 Should everyone have the opportunity to go into space? Why or why not?
    Yes, of course. As I said a while ago, going there is the dream of every human being, and every one of us should have the opportunity. We are equal, none of us is better than the other.

  • daring_donkey | Alkhansaa Prep Co Ed School A | Occupied Palestinian Territory 19 Nov 2022

    Agree...... Why, because there should be opportunities for the whole world to go and get acquainted with secret things and entertain people, because these are moral values. These are among the positives, of course, but I also see negatives, for example, there are people who want to spend their money on a living, why why? .......... The reason is because of the very expensive prices. People who cannot go in the first place because their condition is very low.👍👍👍

  • rhetorical_writer | Cheam Fields Primary Academy | United Kingdom 21 Nov 2022

    I could probably could buy a 1 bedroom house and some food because the prices of stuff are very high in my area because of the cost of living crisis.I would not buy a ticket to space because I might run out of food, water and maybe even oxygen which helps us breathe and if you run out you would die in seconds. Everyone should get a opportunity to go into space if they want to because it is fun but if they don't want to it is ok because not everyone wants to go into space.

  • educated_tree | Cheam Fields Primary Academy | United Kingdom 21 Nov 2022

    What could you buy for $450,000 where you live? What would you spend it on?:

    I could probably only afford a 1 bedroom house as the prices of everything in South West London is so expensive. I could also by some food and drink for but that would be all I could purchase. Personally, I would spend this money on shelter, food, water and animals. These are my options as I am an animal lover and I would need food, shelter and water to live a good life.

    Would you ever buy a ticket to go to space? Why or why not?

    I would love to purchase a ticket to space but I probably couldn't cope with so much pressure around me. I would buy a ticket to space as the scenery would be pretty with loads of galaxies and I would be able to float around. I also wouldn't want to go to space as I could lose all my oxygen I would hate that as I would not live.

    Should everyone have the opportunity to go into space? Why or why not?

    I think everyone should get a chance to go to space. But then some people would not want to go to space as they would be terrified and hate going out of the Earths atmosphere. I would personally let people go to space if they want. Otherwise people would have a horrifying experience if they don't like space.

  • accurate_chocolate | Shohour Public High School | Lebanon 21 Nov 2022

    In fact, the amount of 450 thousand dollars is a very large price for a ticket to space, as this amount is worth a lot on earth, as I can buy cars, a house, or anything that I might need because it is a really huge amount, and I personally will not buy a ticket to space for this much money Yes, why can't anyone go to space, but the only obstacle is the price of this trip.

  • enlightened_currant | Shohour Public High School | Lebanon 21 Nov 2022

    In this 450.000$ I would buy 2 tickest to go to space with someone I would be happy with because why not people shouldn't explore the greatness of our universe the other planets that I have interest in exploring them and knowing secrets no one knows it yet because maybe there's life on other planets other than the one that Scientists explored. In my opinion i believe that Aliens are real creatures and they are Peaceful to humans and they live on other planets so I'm interested for exploring the other planets :)

  • decisive_expression | Bal Bharati Public school B | India 21 Nov 2022

    I believe that everyone should have the opportunity to go into space, as we are all humans and share the same human rights. Going to space can be seen as a very exciting adventure, and everyone should get the chance to experience it once. Be it a rich person or a poor person, it doesn't change their curiosity, joyfulness, etc.  


    No, I would not buy a ticket to space because, if we look at India, it is most prone to natural disasters like earthquakes, cyclones, tsunamis, floods, etc., and I could really use those $450,000 on buying aid boxes containing food and medicine for victims of such natural disasters.

  • energetic_volcano | Beit Hanoun Prep Girls A School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 22 Nov 2022

    This is a very great opportunity and everything has its pros and cons, and among its positives is that a person gets to know the world and knows God’s ability to visualize the universe, and that man has no income and God teaches man what he does not know, just as there are countries on the maps that have not developed scientifically or practically because of the wars and their geographical location, and perhaps also for a lack of Money
    But one of its drawbacks is that it is a large amount of money, and this huge amount that goes in 90 minutes can help many people by setting up a project for them, so it stays for a lifetime and brings sustenance for them, or even educating qualified people on the Internet and smart phones helps them work with other countries to earn money It is beneficial for them

  • amazing_tradition | Ormiston Bushfield Academy | United Kingdom 23 Nov 2022

    I think people spending $450,000 on space flight is crazy. I think people should be spending that money on helping the environment because by lunching a spaceship into space requires fuel. "Space launches can have a hefty carbon footprint due to the burning of solid rocket fuels." ( https://www.sciencefocus.com/space/are-space-launches-bad-for-the-environment/ ). But some space flights use liquid hydrogen fuel which produces apparently clean water vapor. Paraphrased from ( https://www.sciencefocus.com/space/are-space-launches-bad-for-the-environment/ ).

    In conclusion I believe that space flight shouldn't be as expensive as it is, but I understand Thay need to make profit, but we should be focusing on helping the environment not slowly making it worse.

    In my country if i had 450,000 dollars, i would have become one of the richest people in my country.But i would mostly spend it on people in need or to improve public properties.

    I think a ticket to go to space is a little overpriced but i would definetliy go to space because I want to explore space as it is my dream to go to space and explore it.

    I think everybody should have the opportnity to go to space because everyone is equal and they have a right to explore stuff as much as the rich do.

  • smart_nectarine | Lyons Hall Primary School E | United Kingdom 25 Nov 2022

    If I had $450000 dollars I would buy a big house for my family to help them. I wouldn’t like to spend ALL my money on a ticket to space because it’s a waste of money, waste of fuel and I wouldn’t really even enjoy it. Everyone shouldn’t have the opportunity to go to space because people might die and it’s a waste of fuel and will be a tragic thing to climate change.

  • blithesome_engineer | Rhemaville Christian Academy | Nigeria 25 Nov 2022

    I just realize that $450000 can be used to build houses, shops, industries, orphanage homes and I could also change my clothes and shoes with the money and it will remain. I would love to buy a ticket to go to space and explore I need to know the world looks from outside, I do not want to be seeing it from the television. I want to see it for real and there are so many things I could learn about space if I buy the ticket. Yes every one should have the opportunity to go to space because some people do not believe what they hear until the see it. I believe there are people out there who do not believe in space because they have not seen it yet, but if they are given the opportunity to go to to space they would see it by themselves and also learn a lot of things.

  • triumphant_mango | Rhemaville Christian Academy | Nigeria 25 Nov 2022

    With that money I would start up a business with something new the world has never tried , people love trying new things, with the right advertisement people all over the world would now about it ,everybody would want the product, by the time I have made more that the money and I know it is sustainable , YES I will go to space. Learning never stops and adventure once in a while is good, I will go to learn more and confirm the things I see in the movies. Movie producers can go and yet new innovations and ideas for movies and yes everyone should be able get to space. I want to experience zero gravity, lets be honest walking can be stress, HOW ABOUT FLOTING.

  • fantastic_snail | Lyons Hall Primary School E | United Kingdom 25 Nov 2022

    3.No it's because a trip to space would cost 450,000 each and there is 8,000,000,000 people and the market would not hand 360,000,000,000,000 which is more money then the usa is worth.

  • credible_piccolo | Lyons Hall Primary School D | United Kingdom 25 Nov 2022

    I would probably buy a eco freindly car like a Tesla use solar panels. Invest and have fun (most importantly )

  • mesmerising_swan | Rhemaville Christian Academy | Nigeria 25 Nov 2022

    Everyone should be given the opportunity to go to space so that they can see the beautiful, mind blowing, captivating and interesting wonders of space. A lot of people who want to go to space haven't been to space and it will be an opportunity of a lifetime seeing space.

  • content_shark | Tarun Madhyamik Vidyalaya | Nepal 26 Nov 2022

    Obviously, I guess yes, everyone should have the opportunity to go in the space. We have have got to know about the space by various researches and many of astronauts actually have flew to space and researched a lot of facts, which we are known about it now. Absolutely I think if everyone are going to get opportunity to go to space then, I think everyone are going to know about the space by their own and learning it authentically is more effective than virtually, as we have just been knowing or learning aboout space as an imagination, but if an individual is going to see it actually, then all of citizens are going to be well-known about the space.

  • authentic_owl | Tarun Madhyamik Vidyalaya | Nepal 26 Nov 2022

    What could you buy for$450000 where you live? what would you spend it on?
    -- l will buy 4000 aid boxes containing food and medicine for a family in need . I would spent it on the better work . I like to support the poor ,needy, helpless, orphans ,children and people who don't have any support from anyone if we spend that money on such work we are blessed by god.

    Should everyone have the opportunity to go to space why?or why not?

    Yes everyone should have opportunity to go to space because every one want to got knowledge to learn about the universe. And by being a human beings they should get equal rights. From universe we can get experience of different things like stars and the8 planets how they are exist on universe.

    Space is the area directly outside of Earth's atmosphere which is about 100 km or 62 miles above the Earth. There are many discoveries and explorations made with the help of modern technology still lots of things out of our thinking/imagination is yet to be discovered.
    In this situation if someone asks me about going to space worth of $450,000 per ticket, then my answer would go in this way:
    Having interest in space and exploration, if I will ever get chance to go to space then I will not loose such opportunity easily, but the time is not now. Looking at the current situation/condition I would not like to be influenced in this topic. Because I can see and feel that it is not the perfect timing to go to space as there are lot to be discovered and our modern society is not modern enough. I will wait for the technology to be more developed, society to be more modern and cost to be more cheap. Instead with that much money I will develop my society and people of where I live.
    I believe in the fact that we will loose our own Earth if we focus on sending rockets with people for entertainment. Few people can also cause a lot of problem for Earth. Instead we must limit the number of people going to space and send only professionals/experts/scientists for further research and information. In this way we can upgrade, update and renew ourselves even living and focusing on the earth. Focusing on the earth means to utilize the money for the development of the society like I said earlier.
    There are many conflicts going on around us, many people suffering form disasters, starvation and poverty so we can help them a lot by donation. Also we can do many more for ourselves as well because for development its not world or continent or nation or town or society or house or even family that needs to start, it is we ourselves first that needs to start. We can buy many books and novels to read; first read then teach then spread. We can also open schools and colleges and universities for many people in need. We can do plenty of things profitable and long-lasting for Earth with the same amount of money with which we can buy only 1 ticket of 90 minutes tour for just entertainment which also harms environment a lot. We are and must be smart enough to choose between space for fun and earth to survive. Thus, we must not just look for enjoyment and fun but also think for this long race of mankind to run. First lets make Earth the best before making space better.
    Space is a complicated three dimensional area which is full of matter, energy, science, math and phenomena where most of the people have interest on. But we must not only look for us but also for the earth who protected us. Again talking about the opportunity, I agree that every people should get a chance to go to space but they must wait a little longer for everything to be normal.
    Since the earth has every did and gave these much for us, can't we show it a little humanity?

  • rhetorical_beetle | Rhemaville Christian Academy | Nigeria 28 Nov 2022

    Personally, I think that everyone should be allowed the opportunity to go to space because it is part of our planet earth, and everyone should have equal opportunities to go to space. It will also serve as a type of experience and sight-seeing to those who are gifted such opportunities.
    If I was given $450,000 in Naira, which with the current exchange rate is about N198,000,000.00, it will really go a long way in investing in sports for young children and creating scholarship opportunities for those gifted in sports and academics. I will also make investments like buying shares, crypto currency because in our world today, these are part of the surest means to make more money if proper investment is made.
    If I had the chance to buy a ticket to space, of course I will go for it because it will be wonderful to see beyond the regular and usual environment because even as a child, I have always fantasized about going to space to see what we always watch on the television. I would consider going to space a privilege. What do you think?

  • reflective_journalist | Rafah Prep A Girls School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 29 Nov 2022

    What can I buy with $450,000 in my country?! When we are asked a question like this, the first thing that comes to our mind is the things that we like and need, and we will not care about the rest of the things that may be small, but they are the ones that make the biggest difference. Will everything I buy benefit me now and in the future?! Yes, this is what I need, so the first thing I decide to buy is a very large amount of different books and novels on various topics for $ 100,000 so that I can cover as many people as possible in my country. Make him aware, as it is said, "If you do not learn how to plant a seed in the earth, the tree will not grow," and so with our society, if we do not make it aware and educated, our many attempts at progress will not succeed. After this step, I will allocate part of the money to support productive projects within my country for a number of distinguished people with experience, to make ourselves great with our own hands, and I will contribute another part to cooperation. A joint project with a friendly country in a project, so I will have secured the innovations of my people and neighboring countries, should I buy a ticket to go to space?! Yes, I like this idea very much, but in my personal opinion, such an opportunity should not go to anyone, but to those who deserve it and even benefit from it. What did we win?! Although there are many impulsive people who love space and have the ability and serious thinking, their financial circumstances prevent them. In this case, I recommend that this opportunity go to those who deserve it. For example, I will set an example for myself. I try to do a lot of things there, for example, what if I grow a plant in space?! Does it grow like the earth?! And a lot of other things, so the opportunity to go into space is an opportunity worth doing, and I will be helpful by bringing explorations and facts from there to benefit those who are interested in this field. As I said earlier, not everyone deserves the chance to go to space. From my point of view, I see that many people mock space researchers and their work, saying that it does not work, but you see them surprised when they see the results of your research on a topic! Whoever goes into space must return with valuable information equal to the suffering it cost him to reach that place called space, to this time and space, a world so large and still somewhat mysterious, and we need everything you need to know the new. things about her. They do this while sitting in their bed eating popcorn, as many websites publish about space and its nature, but we really need global explorations that change the balance of the world!

  • inspirational_forest | Rhemaville Christian Academy | Nigeria 30 Nov 2022

    Yes i would buy a ticket to space because in space there are things that can be found there and not on earth, things like the planets, the stars, moon, galaxy filaments, blackhole and so on, which i find really fascinating.

  • dependable_fly | Adamson Middle School K | United States of America 01 Dec 2022

    I could buy a lot of things with 450,000, and to be honest I don't feel like listing them all. I wouldn't buy a ticket to go to space, because even though space sounds neat, it wouldn't be the best for me, because I'm pretty scared of getting lost in space. I think everyone should have the opportunity to go into space, because it's nice to find out more about space you haven't known about and even want to start studying space.

  • modest_artist | Lyons Hall Primary School C | United Kingdom 02 Dec 2022

    I think they should plant 450000 trees in the amazon because of deforestation

  • inventive_night | Lyons Hall Primary School C | United Kingdom 02 Dec 2022

    I think it is a complete wast of money Elon Musc brought Twitter when he could of stopped world hunger for a few years


    Like I said a complete wast of money

  • buzzing_tomato | Boutcher CofE Primary A | United Kingdom 02 Dec 2022

    If I had $450,000 I would spend it on a car when i'm old enough to drive one and a really good phone. If I had enough money to buy a ticket to space I would go to have the experience. If I can't go I would spend it on trees for the planet so other generations can enjoy it. I don't know if everyone should have the chance to go to space because otherwise the planet might die.

  • artistic_dinosaur | Lyons Hall Primary School B | United Kingdom 02 Dec 2022

    I THINK WE SOULD MAKE RE USABLE SPACE SHIPS TO LOWER THE PRICES AND GET BETTER SHIPS

  • happy_imagination | Lyons Hall Primary School B | United Kingdom 02 Dec 2022

    There is not enough money to spend on the world because people are spending so much money on space even though no one lives there. I think that they should only spend money on research about space. Also they are spending too much money to make rocket's because the rockets they use aren't reusable. So every time a new person wants to go to space they have to spend loads of money for a new rocket.

  • engaging_concept | Lyons Hall Primary School B | United Kingdom 02 Dec 2022

    I think it is ridiculous how much it costs. I don't think we should spend that much just on space because we need to pay for things to, but at the same time we need to because there might be signs of living things on other planets like there was signs of water on Mars once. Also there might bean Asteroid one day and we need to be prepared for it. Sometimes we need space and science and living.

  • frank_piano | Lyons Hall Primary School B | United Kingdom 02 Dec 2022

    i think we should only spend money on space when we really have to. Like for example making probes to change the course of asteroids. This is helpful because if an asteroid is going to hit earth and we didn't spend any moneyಠ_ಠ

  • successful_imagination | Lyons Hall Primary School B | United Kingdom 02 Dec 2022

    Should everyone go to space?
    It sounds very dangerous out in space. I heard that asteroids crash into planets.
    And where are you going to get food and drinks. you might get hungry or you might get thirsty out at space.

  • diplomatic_dog | Lyons Hall Primary School B | United Kingdom 02 Dec 2022

    I think we should only spend money on space when we really have to. Like for example making probes to change the course of asteroids. This is helpful because if an asteroid is going to hit earth and we didn't spend any money at all on space people could potentially die or get hurt. But things like exploration are unnecessary and a lot of money we spend on exploration we could spend on more important things that help humans on Earth.

  • steady_desert | Lyons Hall Primary School E | United Kingdom 02 Dec 2022

    I would not spend all that money on going to space although I'am very interested in space I think I would be too scared and you could buy a lot of other great and helpful things with all that money although people who are interested in space and want to investigate could do it !!!

  • amusing_dolphin | Tarun Madhyamik Vidyalaya | Nepal 03 Dec 2022

    To be honest, If I got $450,000 I would really be selfish and firstly fulfil my desires. After that, As my parents have always dreamed of building a big house in capital city so I would build a house for them as they want. I would also surely donate some amount of money to orphanage, charities, needy people. And at last I would like to do something for street animals with the rest of sum.

  • polite_fact | Adamson Middle School K | United States of America 05 Dec 2022

    I would buy a house with 6 bedrooms so if someone wants to stay they will have their own room I would live in Alabama because how big it is and once I go there I'm going to ride around to see what it's like and how everything feels because it's a big city and it even has a beach.Once I get there and ride around I'm going to go to my house and look something up about it to see where I should go tomorrow it's going to be great if I was living in Alabama right now.Even my family would want to live there with me and we would eat from waffle house,Rocky cafe and pizza,Great wall restaurant and great chow those are all of the places I would eat from.So I would buy a ticket to play a game and get everything for free in space because what if there is a restaurant in space on a plant we just didn't know that because who ever lived on the planets they would need something to eat.I don't think everyone should have the opportunity to go into space because they will probably lose something or get hurt and whatever they use it's probably going to run out of gas or it's probably going to crash or he or she is probably going to lose it when he or she get out to look around the planets.

  • polite_fact | Adamson Middle School K | United States of America 06 Dec 2022

    Yes, everyone should have this opportunity to think about this universe and this great creation and the trip would be great only if we don't have to pay I don't even think we would because everyone can use something that is theirs to go they can go their without having to pay because what if we had to use all of our money just to go to space and space cost too much it cost $250,000 to $500,000 so we would use up all of our money the only way we won't is by making something of our own to go and by putting them on rockets carrying tons of propellant that how we would go to space and before we leave we have to make sure we have oxygen, food, water, and rest we would also need A Spaceship. Firstly, whether it's a suit that fits around your body or a larger vehicle that gives you some freedom of movement, you need a spaceship if you're going into space,Food and Water,Hygiene and Health Supplies, and Music and Relaxation. because we need those while we are in space so that is everything we need.

  • imaginative_boysenberry | Rhemaville Christian Academy | Nigeria 07 Dec 2022

    I have always wanted have an orphanage for the orphans, so i can start by investing that money in orphanes, then use small of it to start a small business.
    I would buy a ticket to space to experience new things other than the same old experience of living on Earth. I also want to experience what is it like to like in 0 Gravity and float everywhere instead of walking.
    Everyone should have the oppurtunity to go into space to have the benefits of explorating including the generation of scientific knowledge, the diffusion of innovation and creation of markets, the inspiration of people around the world, and agreements forged between the countries engaged in exploration.

  • lovely_beetle | Lyons Hall Primary School A | United Kingdom 09 Dec 2022

    I would want to buy more ECO stuff to save the planet because there is lots of bad things happening on the planet and we need to help it using the 450'00 pounds and with that money that's what we can do to save the planet.
