College Cook...... I agree with you 95%!!!
Exploring space is important. Just not now. Maybe in 100 years. Why dont you think companies havent explored space yet? Well you answered that question. No REASON to. Still PLEANTY of things to explore here on earth!!

I strongly feel exploring that expends a LOT of money should be done in a logical AND economical way!!!!! And if the government is doing it, it should have TANGIBLE results that help its population. Not just put a probe out there "because of what we MIGHT find thats USEFUL".

Well I could look in the vaccum of space..... populated by rocks.

ORRRRRR.....
I could focus on the vast ocean that is teaming with life.
Which would YOU choose??
Did I mention the dead rock infested space is probably 50 times MORE expensive to check out?

I am not so sure I can agree with this statement. We have figured out how to go into space, yet for all the money we have sunk (granted most of it is private money) we can not get to the seepest parts of the ocean yet.

OH! And how about this....... metorites are found on the earth every week? Analyze THOSE suckers. Plenty to go around! And the cost to find em? Couple of thousand for a nice rock I betcha.
Also, doing some research today. All I found with exploring space...... pictures. COOL pictures. But thats IT. Seriously. All these probes..... all they have is pictures and dirt samples.

Well we have to spend money to explore it first.

If tons of good came from DEVELOPING things to explore space.... then is it NOT logical that "tons" of good things will come from exploring the ocean??? AND.... for a LOT less.

Yes the possibility. You need to start somewhere DS. baby steps. When you learned to walk you didn't start by running a marathon.

I am not saying we should not be exploring the oceans. I am all for that. I think there is TONS to learn there too. I am saying there is not reason not to do both. It does not need to be one OR the other.

I do not agree that is will cost less to explore the ocean though. I think it can easily be just as expensive.
