Space🔭🚀 may be the final frontier,but its an expert chance to explore.There are ample problems with which to contend here on 🌎 earth,and that leads some people to wonder if space exploration is worth the hassle.I believe the answer is 'unequivocally' yes!!Here are 5 reasons why space exploration is so vital to humanity.
1.New technologies and research.
Humans didn't evolve to go into space,but we go there anyway.That has led to the development of various tech that feedback into the economy and improve our lives on Earth,without space programs,we could not have GPS,accurate weather prediction,solar cells,or the ultraviolet filters in sun glasses and cameras.There's also medical research happening right now that could cure diseases and prong long human lives, and these experiments can't be done on Earth.Space exploration could save your life.
2.Astoriods and comets don't care about us.
Speaking of saving lives,space exploration could save all our lives.Our solar system has calmed down a lot since the early eons,but there are still uncountable big asteroids and comets out there that could smack the planet and really ruin your day.It's happenned several times in the past,each one causing a mass extinction.It's not a matter of time until a large Astoriod hits the earth,but when.A robust space program is the only hope we have on deflecting such an object.
3.colinization is the only backup.
There are currently more than a 7 billion humans which is a lot.We are crammed together on this one planet.If something happened to earth,our species could be wiped out.For example, the aforementioned Astoriod impact.Colonizing other bodies in the solar system is way to create a "backup" of humanity that will survive no matter what happens to earth. Maybe future humans will be martinis who will never set foot on Earth.
4.Space mining could save the world.
As we develop new technologies on Earth,the strain on our natural resources continuous to increase.The extraction of valueable minirals has led to a host of problems including environmental damage and human exploration, but there's a world of precious matirials in space.Startups like planetary reasourses want to mine Astoriods instead of earth,which would mean an effectively unlimited supply of raw materials that are rare on earth.
5.We are explorers.
There are more practical reasons for space exploration but one of the principal reason's we must continue is that we're explorers.Thats why humans number in the billions-from our earliest upright steps,we've endeavour to learn more about the world around us,and this allows us to build civilisation.Exploring space is an opportunity not to only to discover new world's and build advanced technology, but to work together toward a larger goal irrespective of nationality,race,or gender.If we stop exploring,we stop being human.
