As long as you avoid space brothels.
If you enter our galaxy, you're entering every galaxy our galaxy has ever been with. Use space protection. Then it's ok.
Not when the money could be used to care for the disadvantaged here on our planet.
Yeah. I think we need to not have our entire species on one planet.
I also think we ought to be working out how to build a manufacturing ba
We could make our ships there, colonize Mars, mine Venus for useable materials and then colonize the outer system.
Either we get off the planet eventually, or sooner or later our species is going to go extinct.
As annoying as we all are, I have hope for my species to surmount this challenge.
Why the **** kind of question is this?
Not sure about space travel, but getting materials from space and bringing them back might not be.
Everything that leaves earth is one less thing that will give earth mass. One less item that will be ultimately recycled. (even if it takes so long that it gets sent under the crust eventually) So I guess taking to much stuff away could be harmful. Meteorites do come in often though, even still.
WTF Does exploring space have to do with morality?
Please don't. I'm guessing it has something to do with some new made-up religious bullcrap.
Yep. Just what I thought. religious beliefs. You can stay on Earth, I'm going to Mars.
bit expensive and Is it possible for ordinary people?
Why wouldn't it be? I don't mean that as an attack; I'm genuinely curious. I feel like I might know where you're coming from with this, but I don't want to make assumptions. :)
For evil reasons?
If we destroy this world we have to go live somewhere else to corrupt mauahahhaha just kidding just kidding
But I believe we have a good nature. Just not a perfect one. If we are to stay here we need to make the world a better place somehow..
And I think the moon landing happened. It sounds cool.
Btw what about the mars rover landing?
ah, ok. I thought that maybe your reasons were more along the line of what RandomUniverse suggested. I do not believe in God so I just can't agree with your religious reasoning, but I can understand not wanting to corrupt the rest of space. I don't know if you were thinking of this specifically, but I can, for example, understand someone wanting to avoid doing what the European colonizers did to North & South America. In the end though I personally am all for space travel, and it will be necessary for our survival as a species.
I don't really think that it would be possible for us to do what the colonizers, if it helps :) Although if we were ever to find ourselves discovering a less technologically advanced alien civilization on another planet, hopefully we will have evolved morally enough by then to be more along the lines of "we come in peace" rather than anything else.
