Importance of space exploration to man

  • Spacecrafts continue to provide information about conditions in space in particular about the weather.

  • Reports derived from weather satellite can act as warning systems about impending storm.
  • It helps us to gain more knowledge about our planet earth. e.g. a scientific satellite known as Vanguard 1 sent back pictures, which showed that the earth was slightly pear-shaped.

  • Communication satellites like Telstra and Relay have made it possible to send television programmes and telephone calls over much longer distances.
  • In 1965, the US achieved another momentous feat in space communication. The mariner4 in a deep space probe sent back pictures of mars that were taken as it passed the planet.
  • Some space exploration offers possibilities without limit. Planets themselves may have metals and other resources that men on earth need.
  • Information about outer space may make it possible to make rain and make long-range weather forecast more accurately than before.
  • Some scientists are optimistic that space research might make it possible for human beings to settle on some planets; so far, we are not very definite about this.

  • Humankind can benefit from medicine prepared under ideal conditions on the planet namely dust free and germ free medicine.
  • Space exploration enhances technological development.
  • It facilitates own understanding of the universe.
  • It leads to improved manufacture of aircrafts, telescope and related machines.
  • Contributed to development of advanced air force weapons
