Firstly I would like to reinforce the fact that the benefits perceived from space exploration are highly overrated These hypes are created by space agencies who try to justify the costs of space exploration in the eyes of the public As we all know numerous resources are devoted to space exploration Space agencies claim that they can alleviate the sufferings of millions of individuals around the world by finding cures to fatal diseases such as HIV AIDS and cancer This is well and good but unfortunately it is only a hope There is no fact there is no definitive to say that this will work We are equally likely to find a solution to these problems on earth as we are in outer space So why spend billions when we can do with millions Ladies and gentlemen we are not denying that there are benefits from space exploration We only claim that the costs involved do not match the benefits received even closely There are two things to take into account when considering any little benefits received aFeasibility - Is it possible for us to use products on earth Can we actually develop a product that we can effectively market and that will help individuals on this planet It hasnt happened in the last four decades so I dont see it happening soon bSustainability - When and if a benefit is received is it sustainable on earth Can we actually use it in a practical way I dont think so Now for my second argument Lack of contribution to life Missions to other planets and interstellar space are of little tangible benefit for humans and contribute very little for life on earth Space exploration has been going on for a prolonged length of time However we have not been able to solve the problems of starvation AIDS cancer etc The space exploration is not commercial and requires huge government subsidies
