  • NASA: The Benefits Of NASA

    Throughout the decades, NASA has made a plethora of breakthrough discoveries that not only shaped the way we study outer space, but also changed human beings’ outlook on life. In the recent years, our government has decided to cut funding to NASA and ultimately end the space shuttle program, creating the big debate of whether or not NASA is significant enough to be included in the United States budget. There are two sides to this issue; one side arguing that NASA’s space program benefits the U.S. and its people, and the opposing side arguing that the space program gives us no direct benefit.

  • NASA Space Regulation

    Aeronautic and Space Administration should pivot — from space exploration to space regulation. In particular, private companies — not NASA — should undertake the exploration of space and NASA should oversee these ventures, much as another federal agency, the FAA, oversees private aviation.
