The results revealed that 50% of the participants of the survey wanted the money to be used somewhere else. Better use of the resources and money would be to spend it on the strengthening of the economy, improving the education sector and providing better health care systems in countries. However, absolute cease on exploration missions would not be wise as well, since such missions also highlight the possibility of celestial events like meteor showers, meteorite explosions etc. Such information is also important for the well being of life on the planet. Therefore, a reasonable strategy demands the decrement of funds for NASA exploration to such a degree that only vital missions are carried out. The extent of necessity of missions should be decided by a government entity constituting of representatives from NASA as well as the

During the heat of the space race in the 1960s, NASA decided it needed a ballpoint pen to write in the zero gravity confines of its space capsules. After considerable research and development, the Astronaut Pen was developed at a cost of approximately $1 million US dollars.
Space exploration has emerged as a very controversial subject, to the extent of wondering whether the controversy is inspired by genuine concerns, or by the unwillingness of some people to engage or wait for the tangible benefits accruing from space exploration projects.
