The government is spending a lot of money to discover life on other planets. Some people think that government is wasting money and should spend more money addressing the problems of public. To what extend do you agree?

Technology has developed so rapidly that the human species has started considering the possibility of finding suitable planets for colonization in the future. In fact, people are now raising the question of whether the government is spending an unnecessary amount of money on space exploration and research rather than spending it to address the present problems of the public.

world countries.


, the lack of education leads to unemployment; a major cause of poverty.

For instance

, while the world moves forward a fast phase due to technological advancements, people who are illiterate are finding it much more difficult to gain decent jobs that can support them and their families.


, with the points mentioned above, it_s quite clear that issues like poverty, lack of security and education should be more focused on when spending government funds.

To conclude, I think the government should give


priority to investing more into the problem faced by the people of a nation rather than finding extraterrestrial
