The common sense, so many problems are here on earth, why spending billions exploring space. There are many answer to this query, the ultimate response is discovery. Discovery is the exploration of the unknown. It is often lead to greatest of changes. Imagine a situation, where C. Columbus denied the opportunities to sail westwards on the pre-conceived notion that earth is not round. He aimed at reaching Bharat/India but reached America. His is known as discovery, the uncovering of unknown fantasies. Many space exploration techniques is now being implemented to solve the problem of the earth. The shock-absorbing helmets to space shuttle to fuel pump technology that is being adopted into a device that help heal a child’s heart.
Stephen Hawking, theoretical physicist and cosmologist said “I don’t think human race will survive the next thousand years, unless we spread unto space.”
Duzz Aldrin, the second man to walk on the moon said “The urge to explore has propelled evolution, like all living human beings cultures cannot remain static, they evolve or decline.”
George Mallory who was to die on Mount Everest, the British explorer, said many years ago, in response to why he wanted to climb it. He said “because it is there.”
SO, here is the space lurking and gazing us every time, we are out in the open. We want to climb space, the moon, and the planets out there. This is hazardous, dangerous and adventures on which human have ever embarked. John F Kennedy at the Rice University in 1962, said about Moon exploration, “The challenge is the one that we are willing to accept, one we are willing to postpone, and the one which we intend to win.”
