Definitely space exploration is not a waste of time and money. It shows that our technology is getting higher and higher. It help us explore the universe so that we can protect the Earth from things out there as well as help us observe the Earth. And that will be great if we discover another planet like Earth, which could be a new home for the human!

I don't think the space exploration that is a waste of time and money. There are many interesting things and we are discovering which is maybe helpful for our lives. Further, I believe the space exploration will more development and have great result in the near future. 

I don't think that space exploration is a waste of time and money. The interest in all the unknown is the thing distinguishes humans from animals. If we had not this character we still stay in caves. When Columb left his home for finding a new way to India, I think, many people thought that it was waste of time and money.

Hello everyone :)
I've got a question... is it right to say "I work A LOT harder" or "it is A LOT more interesting"? Thanks)))

Hello Z.O.Y.A!

Yes, they are both OK - but you must be comparing something!
 
I work a lot harder [than you]
Studying English is a lot more interesting [than watching TV]

Hope that helps!
