I believe that funds should be spent to take care of this planet rather than explore space.
Funding space exploration is a waste of money when there are so many issues plaguing the planet. People die from hunger and curable diseases every single day. We are destroying our lands at an alarming rate. These issues need to be addressed before we consider leaving the planet. Finding sustainable sources of energy and ending war and famine are of far greater importance than space exploration which has no promise to benefit mankind
