2009 Question One Practice Essay

609 words - 3 pages

Space exploration by the United States has been going on since the early nineteen hundreds. The impacts of space exploration can vary from being the first country ever to land on the moon, to having satellites orbit our planet. Despite the achievements space exploration has given to this country, there are many issues—with money, extraterrestrial threats, and the lack of a reason for funding—at hand that should be addressed to make decisions about the future of space exploration in the United States.

There are other important things some of that money could be put towards, like our national debt. Funding NASA a little less will not be the end of the world, many other companies with far more important studies could use the money too.

When the men on the moon returned to earth, they were quarantined “...to prevent “back contamination,” the hazard that some infectious extraterrestrial germ might be riding with them” (Source F). This problem was easily resolved with disinfecting, but another possible problem has arisen. There is a possibility of forward contamination, or “...the infection of alien ecosystems by terrestrial organisms hitchhiking on a...
