For centuries people have looked at the night sky, eyed the stars and wondered what lies behind our planet. About 400 years ago Galileo Galilei looked through his telescope and discovered – with firmly planted feet on the ground – the Jupiter moons.
And just 49 years ago, the first humans were shot into space and entered the moon, a mission that not only sparked modern science and technology, but also a motivation to go further into the infinite.
Dave Bloomberg, 69, a member of the Royal Air Force Association, said he remembers seeing television programs about Disney over space] "They made plans to make a trip to the moon, and there was a lot of interest then and there is Now a lot of interest, "he said.
Critics say, however, that they invest more in space exploration. Borderline is wasteful and can wait. Even the Pentagon chief Jim Mattis initially pushed back the idea of creating an additional military space force. The creation of this military branch is estimated to cost the country billions.
With the push to do more to discover and defend the last frontiers, we ask: should the US government invest more in space exploration?
