Why is space so important ?

Space Featured Image 3

Space is important because if in the future anything happened to our plant (earth) and it is no longer there, where will we go? There are over 7 billion humans on earth which is a lot, we are all in the same world and crammed in to one planet. Eventually there will be more humans and less space for us all!

Space also provides earth with valuable metals, rare objects and precious materials that can be used for medical research. These special things can help cure diseases and help us to survive. Space is playing a valuable role in saving lives.

If NASA stopped exploring our universe, we would not know important facts about space and our solar system. Without exploring and developing space programmes how will we continue to evolve? There'd be no accurate weather reports and no valuable experiments that can't be done on earth. If NASA stopped the work they do in space, humans would eventually be extinct.

Astronauts are already exploring space and learning more about it, they are giving us the opportunity to discover new worlds. Astronaut's jobs are important, if they stopped finding out about space this would mean we would not learn new special facts about the planets we already know about.

If meteors hit our planet astronauts would warn us in advance so that we’d be prepared for the meteor attack. If the astronauts stopped the exploration of space, the impact of meteors would damage the earth and harm the environment.

I think space is very important to our existence and I'm excited to find out what more space can offer us. Aren't you?

    I think space is a very important thing because to just take a moment to realise how small we are compared to countries compared to planets compared to giant exoplanets and last but not least the universe .

    I think space is important but space exploration is not because it is more than 1 million pounds.

    What do you mean by, when Earth is no longer there. What do you mean by it? Do you think it will just vanish into thin air? Because if it is, then I don't agree. Sure, Earth will heat up and become uninhabitable but it won't just disappear. And also, how do these things help us survive with medical research? Do you mean they can help us to make different computers and laptops where we do our research? Because humans don't really use precious metals in computers, more ordinary ones.

    Space may be the final frontier,but it's an expensive one to explore. There are ample problems whith 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 five reasons why space exploration is vital to humanity.

    I think space is important because it provides solutions to problems on Earth

      Can you give an example?

    1.New tech and research
    Humans did not evolve to go into space,but we go there anyway. That has led to the development of various tech that feed back 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 reasearch happening right now that could cure diseases and pronlong human lives, and these experiments can't be done on earth, space exploration could save your life.

    2.Astoroids and comets don't care about us
    Speaking of saving lives,space exploration could save our lives.our solar system has calmed down a lot since the early eons, but there are still uncountable big Astoroids and comets out there that could smack the planet and really ruin your day. It's happened several times before, each one almost causing exstinction. It's not a matter of time until a large Astoroid hits the earth, but when. A robust space program is the only hope we have on deflecting such a big object.

    This gives us new technology medicines knowledge.When we use our high performance space stations what adress extreme challenges what can keep the public satisfied of all the excitement from space.It can bring the society the communities together

    Yes, I think space is important to us because of the worlds problems and popution growth.

    I think space is more important because it is filled with mystical things that can help world problems e.g. Cancer, hypothermia, frostbite etc

    There is many reasons why space is so important so yes space is important and I believe that we should start caring about it a lot more and start looking after it.

    Here is some reasons why I think space is important:

    . It is still apart of our world
    . It is another world to discover
    . It could be used as homes
    . We could somehow use it to help us
    . It is a dream to go to space for some people

    Therefore we should all agree that space is important.

    Space is important because,
    Firstly, in space there are all sorts of things created including antidotes. Space isn't fully explored and if there was a cure to cancer, space would proberbly be the place to find it! Also, NASA have created several important things that I found out in a BNC lesson. Things like trainers, wireless headphones, artificial limbs, cat scans and much more. Without artificial limbs people wouldn't be able to run and do things that they enjoy. Also, without CAT scans people would have unknown broken bones and unknown illnesses. In addition to this, when the Earth explodes, we need a habitable planet so the human race can continue.

      Good use of the knowledge from your BNC sessions, determined_shrimp!

    I think some of the resores are helpful to us to see if we can live there

    I think space is important to us because it can help us find more planets(to live on)More materials.and it can fill in all of our curiosity.(great post.)

    Space is important because is provides with many life changing things. For example exploring space has enabled us to enhance cancer cures and given us satellites, both things have been beneficial to many around the world because satellites has improved our weather forecasting and given us telecommunication. Space is also important because it allows us to know what we are really capable of, this could show a person that they can achieve great things in life. In addition to this, the space industry has opened up many new jobs which has taken people with potential out of poverty.

    On the other hand, it is arguable that we need to focus on problems on the ground like climate change. Launching a rocket is extremely harmful to the environment due to carbon dioxide and several hydrazines. In addition to this launching a rocket costs 500 million and there is risk of life.
    The argument that convinces me the most is climate change because we could find a solution to climate change via space.

      Well done for giving clear reasons on both sides of the argument. Can you make a decision about which side is more convincing?

    I strongly believe that space is very important because in space there are a lot of things that could be helpful for our specie there could be a lot of medical supplies that could help our species

    Space is so important because if we didn’t have space then we would not have anywhere to go to if the sun was to explode or climate change were to have a really bad effect on the planet and we would have to evacuate! Also it has helped us in so many discoveries that without it our life would be much more different to now as the materials we use that we found in space wouldn’t be here and we would have to use a different material that wouldn’t be as good. Normally when you are in your daily life then you do not realise how much space has actually done for us. It has helped us discover new materials and medicines that is vital to our planet. If you also think about it, it has not only helped us and the planet but it has helped individuals as they have found a job that they are good at and love. It is an amazing experience to be able to travel to space as it is something very few people get to experience!

    I think Space is very important because it shows how small we are compared to other planets, galaxys and more. It also helps ( if this does happen ) when the earth gets filled with pollution and we have to move planet. Human kind should be able to know about Space and materirials on the planets. If we think about it, Space has helped our planet multiple times with medicines, and new materials. And , not only has it helped us for our planet it has also helped us with learning new discoveries! Space is all very unknown but we will find out lots of new planets and other interesting things!
