 I don’t think space exploration is worth the price for now for the following three reasons. (@)
 I don’t think the future of space travel is bright and I am against it for now. (A)
 Firstly, nearly every astronaut experiences some space sickness, caused by the wildly confusing information reaching their inner ears. And this problem will not be solved at least in the near future.
 Secondly, it carries grave dangers. The consequences of an accident could be disastrous. It will not only destroy spaceships but also claim the lives of astronauts.
 Finally and most importantly, we cannot afford to waste a lot of money and time on such a quixotic project when poverty and starvation still exist on earth. I don’t mean that space exploration or space travel is completely meaningless but as long as the world is plagued by war and famine while a lot of refugees are struggling to survive, we should spend money and time on solving these serious problems on earth first instead of spending on space travel.
 As I mentioned above, for the aforesaid three reasons, I don’t think space exploration is worth the price for now. (@)
 As I mentioned, I don’t think the future of space travel is bright and I am against it for now. (A)
