Some people say that technology is just a waste of money and is not used for practical life.
However, I think that space-related technology is a good investment. It is useful for future generations because it reduces the effect of human activity on our planet. Also, by using it, we can learn more about space, proving how valuable the earth is.
First, space technology can investigate outer space in greater precision. Some scientists are searching for planets similar to the earth to live in.
Now that our population is increasing, it is increasingly important to find earth-like planets.
Space technology will contribute to this.
Secondly, breakthroughs of this technology will also find new energy sources.
We consume huge energy resources such as oil and coal. Some scientists predicts that in the near future, fossil fuels will not compensate for the conventional energy which we depend on. Space-related technology must be developed for an alternative.
Thirdly, knowledge of outer space is essential for us to understand future earth.
For example, via space technology we now know that Venus is much hotter than the earth even though it's the same size and spins at a similar distance from the Sun.
Space technology also tells us that the green house effect on Venus can make it a harsh environment to inhabit. Therefore, we can see that global warming is also a huge threat for the earth. Without space technology we could not understand our own planet as well as we do.
To conclude, I think space technology should be improved.
