The problem of financing of scientific projects on space exploration is arousing debates. Some people believe that goverment has to spend a lot of money on discoveries in outer space while there are many people who claim that problems on Earthare more important so country has to spend this money on their solution.
In my opinion, it s more important to invest in these projects than you can imagine. Firstly, space exploration can help us to get new knowledge about other planets, stars and cosmic bodies. We can find life somewhere in space. And maybe there are people who are clever than us. Our galaxy is full of secrets which people have to reveal. Secody, satellites help us in weather prediction and disaster prediction.
Satellite communications, television, radio, GPS have become very important part of our life. Also, we began to understand better the state of our planet with help of space explorations. Scientists study the Earth's atmosphere from space and so they can understand how climate affects life on Earth. Scientists know when asteroids will be close to the planet and how we can avoid collisions with the Earth.
On the other hand, space exploration has one important disadvantage. Scientific projects are very expensive. And this money could be used for solving such problems as poorness, hunger, diseases.
Personally, I believe that space exploration is necessary and we have not to understimate that.
To sum up, I am convinced that governments have to spend money on Earth problems but I think that space is able to develop us. Therefore, it needs investment.
