more I don’t suppose that readers would expect me to contradict the title of this article – that would be tantamount to signing my own redundancy notice. Surely that money could be better spent on more worthy areas, such as health and education?
But, given an environment where phrases such as “pay restraint”, “austerity package” and “falling service provision” are bandied around, it might be thought somewhat profligate to suggest that millions of pounds (euros, dollars) are spent on exploration of space. But the millions do not go up in smoke: they are used to pay for jobs and services.
Along with an understanding of what goes into space exploration comes an appreciation of the people who help to make space exploration happen: teachers.
Without their inspirational support and guidance, we would not have succeeding generations of engineers, scientists and other specialists who make the UK’s space industry so successful.
Those in rural areas or third-world nations People living in rural areas or the third world countries do no even know how to prevent common threatening diseases such as AIDS and lung cancer.
Then, some may argue that the purpose of space exploration areis to discover new lands, new energy resources or to deter potential threat to globethe globe.Where would we be now if we didn’t have the internet?These are daily services which we take for granted, and are rarely, if ever, considered as “space exploration”.The Open University provides funding as a founding partner of The Conversation UK.The Conversation is funded by the National Research Foundation, eight universities, including the Cape Peninsula University of Technology, Rhodes University, Stellenbosch University and the Universities of Cape Town, Johannesburg, Kwa-Zulu Natal, Pretoria, and South Africa.But the UK has been so successful in growing its space industry, it doesn’t have enough “homegrown” specialists to employ. So we need more teachers, more trained scientists and engineers – and more space industry. Nevertheless, is it effective to do so while other alternatives are available?Lands on earth are no The land on Earth is not yet effectively used. solar and nuclear energy) have not yet been widely-used. All of these tasks that haven’t been tackled yet require money.It is not a common sensedoes not make sense at all to invest millions of dollars researching and producing foods for astronauts (for space exploration purpose), while every day thousands of people are starving.Furthermore, the discovery of outer space only serves a minor group of people if the majority are even notis not even well-educated.
