Support Space Exploration: Agree or Not?

In summary, space exploration should continue to be supported due to its ability to expand knowledge and understanding of the universe, as well as its practical applications in technology, medicine, and resource management. While it may be expensive, the benefits and advancements it brings far outweigh the costs and the budget for space exploration is relatively small. Some benefits of space exploration include advancements in technology, scientific discoveries, potential for resource exploration and colonization, and inspiring future generations and fostering international cooperation. There are some risks involved, but they are carefully managed and the benefits outweigh any potential risks. Additionally, space exploration has minimal impact on the environment compared to other industries and the knowledge gained can help us better understand and protect our own planet.

Robotics. Why waste money launching people into space with nowhere to go? Robots could easily build a fully functional moonbase for a fraction of the cost [and difficulty] of doing it via manned launches. We currently have the computer know how to pull this off. A mission to Mars would be far simpler by this method. Robotically build a moonbase and launch pad in advance, then a station on mars. Unforeseen difficulties would not be politically, or economically disasterous.
