What we should do about space exploration: All about teamwork and not competition

In my opinion , instead of having many different space exploration companies, if we had 1 big space exploration company , we would be able to have one big space exploration team. With the minds and money of people like Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos combined , there could be a lot more people going into space and into orbit.

If many different space exploration companies all go against eachother there there would be a lot of competition and if they all united there would be more teamwork. We know that many discoveries, such as wireless headphones have been made through going to space. Learning more about space can help make the world a more revolutionized .Though great scientists have left our world, there discoveries have made a big impact on the world. Though Albert Einstein's discovery of nuclear weapons did result in catastrophic events during WW2, though these are not space discoveries.

The sooner all the space companies combine the sooner we could have explored all of the solar system and maybe even other galaxies. This would need a more safer and faster way for astronauts to travel. Though we think that technology from the 1960s is very primitive compared to what we have today, what technology we would have in 100 years would make our modern things look like something ancient.

Though the health precautions that need to be taken when going to space are quite serious, the very rich would be able to go on a space tour 1 day. As space exploration becomes more available and cheaper, the prices for space tour tickets could go from hundreds of thousands of poundpounds to as much as a plane ticket.

In conclusion, I would say that space exploration is worth it if we all unite.One large issue is pollution. If we keep on polluting the environment, we could have massive global warming problems and there would be flooding all across the planet. A solution to this is that we could make electric or hybrid rockets.

    A well-reasoned final piece. Well done! Why might some countries not want to work with others? What might their reasons be?

    If space exploration companies combined, we could make the most of humanity's power to change. It would be a great idea to make the private and the public sector work together... but this daring move would come with casualties. We have to remember Space X, which is NASA's direct competition. If we joined these huge companies together there would be a lot of tension between divisions. Not everything is best together. My reasoning behind this is the fact of authority. NASA would say that we have the US government behind our back, and so would say
    'we shall do things our way.' Space X would indefinitely say that you cannot control us like that, even though in this scenario they are one company! As i have clearly shown here, we cannot afford to combine huge companies as it will cause lots of tension and pressure.

    I really enjoyed reading your post. I agree, I think we should all work together and not a competion. Also I have a question, when you say work together do you mean pairing up other countries? If so, what are these countries and why did you pick them. Or did you mean working together in different areas or all the astronauts the same country and area all go together in a group.

    Some countries might not want to work with others because for example America and China because shortly after WW2 , the USA opposed China ,the Soviet Union and Korea . The Soviet Union and China wanted to have control of Korea .It was split into South Korea [ The American part ] and North Korea [ The Soviet part ] . Since then they have been enemies in war ans space exploration . This why they might not team up.
