The space is not attention for me, but i think it is attention for anther people, if they are have money and free time so great idea do exploration the space

I want you talk about healthy food, it's Important topic for nowadays.

Space exploration isn't a waste of time if we see it by the science point. There are so many things that humankind can discover about the universe, and these things can help a lot in technology development. Conversely, this isn't the most important thing in the world because exists a lot of things in the world that need to be improved and life on earth matters.

Well, I think space exploration is necessary buy not the most important thing to do, maybe the goberments should worry about other matters more urgent for their societies like building houses, growing food or medical care for people. Some countries spend loads of money in space exploration while some people whom live in those countries don't have enough money to buy food or pay the rent of their house. But I also think that at certain point the earth wouldn't be able to support all the population at the level is growing nowadays so it will be necessary to have an alternative habitat to live in.

Thanks for the episode!! Great site!

Personally, i don't think so.
I think space exploration is of great significance to mankind as its helps to understand and interact consciously in relation to our geographical ecosystem.
I agree with those opinion that space exploration is not a waste of time and money.

I think that the space exploration is not a waste of time and money because we were created with learning needs. We should train our brains. But we have to use for peaceful purposes.

Billions of dollars are spent every year by the world's space agencies, but does this money bring us any benefit, or should we pull the plug and spend it elsewhere?

I do not know a lot about space exploration

It's not a waste of money or time in space because we can study and look at the interesting objects in the space

I think that space exploration is a good thing.Maybe someday these studies and the exploration could bring something good for us and for the earth!
