It is common knowledge that the twentieth century is the beginning of space exploration. Many people claim that it was the most significant achievement of the last century. However, there are those who think that there were more meaningful discoveries.
In my opinion, there are numerous advantages to the space exploration. Firstly, Yuri Gagarin’s flight encouraged many other cosmonauts to explore huge and mysterious space. This first flight proved that people can survive in the cosmos and explore it as well. Secondly, from the first experiments scientists could systematic their knowledge of astronomy. Now we know a lot about the solar system, different planets and our own planet Earth thanks to the space exploration.
Nevertheless, the opponents of this view argue that space research was not the greatest event of the previous century.
They say that there were other useful discoveries for mankind such as mobile phones, computers and Internet connection. In comparison with them, space exploration does not have positive impact on our society.
Despite this, I disagree. I think there is a direct link between the development of space research programmes and different earth technologies. For instance, the satellite provides us with television programmes, weather forecast and many other things.
In conclusion, I am firmly convinced that space research was the biggest success of the twentieth century even though there are different opinions.
All in all i agree with this point of view.
