As Eugene Cernan said, “Today, we are on a path of decay. We are seeing the book close on five decades of accomplishments as the leader in human space exploration.” This will be the gloomy outcome if we let the government stop funding space exploration. We should have our Space Exploration program because it furthers our knowledge of the universe, results in new technologies, provides American jobs, and evokes curiosity in everyday people.
We should continue to explore space because in doing so, we are discovering new, exciting things and furthering our knowledge of who we are and why we are here. (a little general statement about why this discovery is necessary). For thousands of years, humans have looked up to the stars in astonishment and

While working towards inventing new and better innovations for space, NASA ends up inventing something new for everyday use. Right now, hundreds of people are waiting for a life saving heart transplant, a reality that would look very bleak, mournful, and depressing if not for the Ventricular Assist Device, (VAD), keeping these children, mothers, fathers, grandparents, and loved ones alive and well while awaiting their heart transplant. Our American Space Program, NASA, is responsible for this superior technology, VAD, that is keeping these well loved people alive marvelously. Without the help of NASA, many people would be relying on older, less conventional methods of support. This is not the only breakthrough from NASA. USA Today offered a list of the “Top 25 Scientific Breakthroughs” that have occurred in its 25 years, and nine of them came from space, eight directly from NASA. Breakthroughs that were on this list included NASA’s COBE probe mapping the fiery aftermath of the Big Bang and confirming that chlorofluorocarbons were eating the stratospheric ozone. Other inventions that are here with the help of NASA include infrared ear thermometers, artificial limbs, anti-icing systems for airplanes, devices that safely destroy landmines, firefighter gear, and many
