Though many people do not see it, I like to describe space as a glorious world with no boundaries waiting to be discovered by humans. During the scientific revolution, people became aware of our solar system and were questioning whether if we are placed in the center of the universe or not. Many of the greatest scientists of this era such as Galileo, argued that the sun was in the middle of the universe and Earth revolves around the sun. It was during this era that people were fascinated by space for its vast layout of discoveries. Now, living in the 21st century has taught me how fortunate we are to witness the new inventions and discoveries created by NASA to explore outer space. Space agencies, such as NASA, has taught us how the Earth really looks and has led to new inventions that contribute to our lives. During these past few years of space discoveries, many people have argued against spending money on investing space explorations and have claimed it to be a waste of money. It's a shame that these people think space is just a waste of money when really, it's a contribution to our life and an essential realization of how we can expand our world.

Many other countries have also become heavily influenced by NASA and have started their own agencies that share the same dreams as every other country. Overall, I think it's best for us to continue the space exploration as it has been a beauty of nature that welcomes us to another world. The universe is infinite and we are just a small speck waiting to explore the true nature of our outer world.
