INTERNATIONAL COMPETITION TOPIC: SPACE
Humans are driven to challenge the boundaries of society’s scientific and technical limits by exploring the unknown. For centuries this drive has inspired space exploration, resulting in new industries, collaborative relationships between nations, and expanded technology. Today many view space exploration as extravagant spending. Others believe governments and private industry should invest more on space, knowing that the scientific research could one day yield better medicines and technologies for mankind. In the next fifty years, will only commercial satellites and military missiles fly above Earth’s atmosphere or will human curiosity push exploration even deeper into space? Should we allow space exploration to be commercial and capitalistic ventures? Is settlement on foreign planets and moons a thing of science fiction or a realistic possibility for the future?
