3. Sample

     In my opinion, costs for space exploration projects are justified in terms of the promising future of human beings.         


     To begin with, space exploration projects have been, and will continue to be the driving force behind state-of-the-art scientific technologies.  Needless to say, in order for any ambitious space projects to be successful, a wide variety of new and cutting-edge technologies need to be developed.  Then, these newly developed technologies could be applied to consumer goods or commodities to improve our life.  For example, computer simulation software developed for space projects has been contributing greatly to facilitating car and aircraft design.       

     In addition, today’s costs for space exploration should be justified for the benefits that our future generations will enjoy.  To effectively address the serious challenges we are facing today, advanced space technology could help us find effective solutions.  When it comes to clean and renewable energy, solar power stations on the earth’s orbit would be far more efficient than those on the grounds.  Moreover, we could mine precious metals and rare earth from asteroids that are traveling near the Earth.        

     Finally, space exploration projects would inspire children who will work for the well-being of human beings in the future.  I’ve read that many school children were encouraged to pursue their career in studying physics, engineering, and astronomy when they saw the Captain Neil Armstrong walked on the Moon in July, 1969.  The same should be true of children today.  Someday, as space scientists and researchers, they would help humans to immigrate to the Mars, leaving overpopulated and environmentally deteriorated Earth.        

     It is true that there are hundreds of millions of people who need emergency humanitarian aid in the world, which might make it difficult to justify huge amount of costs for space exploration projects.   However, because of the three reasons I mentioned above, space exploration is worth the cost.
