As a species we have been pushing the limits on what we can accomplish in space. Does it matter? Do you think the colonizing another planet is something we should be exploring?
Recently Christina Koch returned from spending over 300 days in space. She broke records and all that jazz. She is now a walking science lab for researchers who are studying the effects of space on our bodies. Pretty darn cool.
But on the other side of the coin…why does it matter? What about figuring out issues that our planet is facing instead of worrying about space survival? Maybe NASA can invent a form of sustainable fuel? Engineer new ways to preserve our current resources before farming resources from space? I dunno.
Space exploration is neat, but I just was wondering if it all matters and why it matters. Thoughts?
