I am skeptical about the validity of space travel.
It would take an immense amount of resources to be actually able to have a colony on the moon or perhaps on another planet, provided it’s even possible. Then there will be the big question of who will live there.
With the same amount of money, we can solve most of the problems we are facing here on our planet. The starving millions, people without homes, the excess use of fossil fuel are the problems that can be resolved by all that money and resources.
I also feel the space program and this race to see which country is the first to establish its dominance in space is just another ploy to divert the attention of people from real issues on the ground.
If you ask the majority of ordinary folks, they would rather we solve the problems they are facing on the planet earth rather than head toward the space
