Space is also helping us to address some of today's most urgent problems. Space technology has produced tools that are transforming weather forecasting, environmental protection, humanitarian assistance, education, medicine, agriculture and a wide range of other activities. And, of course, a fascination with space leads many young people to pursue careers in science and technology, helping developing countries in particular to build up their human resources, improve their technological base and enhance their prospects for development" (Driscoll, 2003, 68) Beyond the economic and political aspects space exploration is a great catalyst for technological development and of course scientific discovery.

So why not send robots, others inquire, they are less expensive to send. Some question whether space flight is necessary at all and plead with others to focus on the problems we face here on Earth. Others would refute that remark and say that space flight helps us to understand our own planet and is therefore benefiting us. Not to mention all the inventions that are created that aid in everyday life that were created in the space flight endeavor Importance: This topic is important because this is our future. This is the nations money, should we be willing to spend this money for knowledge or should we be using this for issues here on Earth?
Elon Musk’s new idea about traveling around the world by rocket would help humanity to evolve into a much more intelligent species. It would also give rockets a new purpose that hadn’t been thought of before. However, is it possible to accomplish such an ambitious task? Rocket traveling seems to be an accomplishable form of transportation because (1) of Elon Musk´s history of innovation and overcoming challenges, fast advancements
EPOXI combines two-science investigation in a new mission that re-uses the Deep Impact spacecraft already in orbit around the Sun (“National” 1). EPOCH stands for extra solar planet observation and characterization and DIXI stands for the deep impact extended investigation of comets. Through combining EPOCH and DIXI that is how NASA got EPOXI. EPOXI embraces NASA’s mission to explore the origin and history of our solar system by understanding the composition and diversity of cometary nuclei and the properties of other planetary systems (“National” 1). EPOXI the flyby spacecraft was not very big but still weighed a lot.
