Since man first gazed up at the stars humans have wondered, what all is out there? Mankind’s knowledge about the universe has immensely expanded following the early space exploration missions. The question now is, how did the universe come to be, as well as how can this information be used to enable humans to become more advanced? Every discovery man has ever made has come from within this solar system, if humans were to travel beyond this solar system the amount of discoveries made would skyrocket. Some examples of discoveries found in this solar system would be the Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe (WMAP) that measured the background radiation from the creation of the universe. This has led to a more accurate age of the universe, along with the discovery that the universe composed of ninety-five …show more content…
As stated earlier all the discoveries were made within this solar system, the discoveries that could be made by traveling outside of this solar system are incomprehensible. Utilizing research discussing discoveries from past missions, the impacts of those discoveries, and postulating potential future outcomes of greater extragalactic missions, this essay will argue that traveling to other galaxies is a means by which to foster greater understanding of the universe. (By providing discoveries from past missions, that when implemented into society changed how mankind looks at the universe, and discoveries that are to come from recent missions or researches. Accordingly, the path in which humans to become a more advanced species, including understanding the nature of the universe, must flow through space exploration and all the discoveries that could be made by doing
