There has always been much controversy over space researching. Many people think that it is the most important achievement of the previous century, whereas others disagree with this point of view.
In my opinion, space exploration is not the most remarkable event of that time. Firstly, there was a beginning of the electrification era which changed the world greatly because people got an opportunity to use electric appliances making their life much easier and healthier. Secondly, the Internet conceived in the twentieth century let computers exchange information and share resources. Hence, this invention had a profound impact on technical progress. Finally, creation of airplane made it possible to travel and transport goods around the globe for a short period of time.
However, there are those who think that research in space was the biggest success a century ago.
According to their opinion, the first human spaceflight with Yuri Gagarin occurred at that time. Therefore, it expanded the world’s knowledge base and made space travel a reality. Additionally, people started developing space technologies and exploring other planets.
Despite this, I do not agree with these statements. Today scientists still do not know much about outer space. Besides, working in this environment can have a detrimental effect on people’s health.
In conclusion, even there are different points of view on this problem, I am inclined to believe that there are many other inventions of that time, which play a crucial role in modern life.
