Survey in Space: Is it worth the cost and the first crime in Space

Space Featured Image 7


This has been a question asked by the BNC for us to explain our point of veiw so I would like to say, Yes, I think it is worth the cost because to be able to see what is in space would give us a deeper understanding of our atmosphere. This is is important because as we do not live in space, we could learn about our surroundings. Having done some research on Google, I have also seen a debate about this aswell. But what about Earth? We have many problems here like overpopulation and hunger. Shouldn't we deal with this first?


It is dangerous and it is not like I am saying this should be daily or often, but it would be helpful for us on Earth if Astronauts just kept on doing their thing; going into space. It is also worth the cost because even if it is is finite or infinite, to be able to explore space is a big oppurtunity, especially because it would cost millions.

'One of the greatest benefits of human spaceflight and space exploration has been the ability to study Earth from orbit. This has allowed us to learn an unprecedented amount about our planet's climate and weather systems, not to mention giving us the ability to measure these systems and the impact that human agency continues to have on them.'

So if we didn't have people like Nicolaus Copernicus, astronauts, and scientists, what would be the point of studying space? Not only is Space interesting, it could help us hugely with learning.


I think this is serious. Anne McClain could be guilty and couldn't. This is a problem with crime; we do not know if someone is guilty or not. But why would anyone want access of the ISS bank? There is many information to be sceptical about. This should be dealt with. Maybe there would be a law in Space who knows? (If you are confused use the link:


Like I said in the Introduction paragraph, we also have problems to deal with like climate change, hunger, and underdevelopment so I think we all as a planet should deal with this first before the USA or NASA think about the first crime in space.

Thank you for listening.

      Like Olivia said, that is a great question. I think it depends on what crime you commit, for example Anne McClain, apparently robbed the International Space station's (ISS) bank, the offence of robbery and the criminal law of robbery would apply to you.

        But the question was what country's laws would apply to you, not what law would. If you just say the offence of robbery would apply to Anna McClain different countries have different consequences for that specific crime, and would punish her in different ways.

    On the heading, The First Crime in Space you wrote, "their is a problem with crime: you can't tell who is guilty or not." I don't agree. Court was created to tell if people were guilty or not. They got questioned and experts retrieved information within the answers. And if you lie, you will probably get caught as there will probably be a misconception in the answers from you and witnesses. I can't remember who it was, but I heard that someone lied in caught but then told the judges afterwards they were lying. If they kept the secret, the judges and investagators could have found out after and sent them to prison for an extra-long time than if they told the truth. Because of this, it is a full-proof system.

    Well once you commit the crime you could be sent to Earth and be sent to court, but as this is the first crime in Space they might have not expected one (a crime) to happen as it is the FIRST crime in Space. Since Space exploration has started a few decades ago, in all that time there has been no crime so they would not have been prepared or really put up cameras because of this.

    I do agree because someone could be sent to court on Earth but one person accused someone else meaning you can accept this or deny it because it was told not recorded.
