Space travel is a great invention. There is so much to learn and explore outside of this world. With space travel we can look for life on other planets (plants or animals) and maybe bring life to other planets. Space travel is a life long dream for some people and they would be very excited to go up into space and explore all of the possibilities. Also, space travel will add to advancements in technology due to constant studying. We could send space robots out into space to explore places we cannot get to or send them up there without a person even going.

Going to space is something many people have always dreamed of doing. Not only do people see it as a life-changing experience but it also opens new doors to technology and shows us what is actually happening in our Earth. There is always a possibility for new discoveries and going to Space definitely increases the discovery rate. We continue to find new things every day and hopefully we will even have new life here on Earth!
Traveling in space not only allows people to follow their ultimate dream of traveling in space, but it also opens new possible technologies to advance the population. In discovering other planets, not only will we have the options of finding life among other planets, but also we have the possibility of BRINGING life to other planets! Many things can come from unfamiliar planets, new life, new technological advances, and especially an abundance of new materials.
Space travel is really interesting thing. When I was young, I wanted to become an astronout. Now I still think that travel in space can be really exciting. For example, you are able to see your planet Earth from the space. In my opinion it is really cool:)
Human space flight is a very honorable thing for human history, because of all the human developments from millions years ago until today. I think it is a great thing to explore the universe, because we need to keep explore that way we can improve our technology better. However, human should also learn from the exploration in the universe, that how valuable is one Earth, people should protect them and keep this planet as long as possible, instead of destroy it.
Hello everybody. I am Eric from the USA and personally I think that the universe is very interesting. The advancements that we have been able to achieve in the past 20 years is nothing short of outstanding. The rover that was sent to Mars is a huge accomplishment for the US as well as the rest of the world because it means that we are beginning to understand life beyond planet earth. Who knows, maybe one of these experiments may lead to the discovery of something extraordinary, like extra-terrestrial life.
Hi! I’m Mandy Chan from Taipei, Taiwan. I was watching the news on Curiosity on Mars, and our solar system has always fascinated me. The improvement of human technology allows us to send robot or cosmonaut to the empty space. The first human spaceflight was directed by the Soviet Union on April 12, 1961. This was a new milestone for human beings. Nowadays, space travel becomes very popular because of danger caused by global warming. Different countries began to compete with each other by sending astronauts into space. They felt the threat of the nature slowly destroying our planet, and hoping to find a new world. So you can say that space travel gives people hope, strength and faith. On this deteriorating Earth, people eagerly wanting to find a place that human generation can survive. Knowing that our planet is dying, exploring the unknown space gives us a chance. So space travel is a good influence to this rotten society.
SpaceX’s historic space station mission delayed again:
The private spaceflight company SpaceX was targeting the launch for Monday, May 7, but now will likely shift to a later date, possibly May 10. The unmanned Dragon spacecraft is due to lift off atop a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida.
Astronauts’ eyeballs deformed by long missions in space, study finds:
They were alerted to the issue when astronauts who had flown on the space shuttle and International Space Station reported changes to their eyesight, with some seeing worse and others better than they had before.
Brain scans revealed that seven of the 27 astronauts had a flattening of the back of one or both eyes. By making the eyeball shorter, this made the astronauts more long-sighted, which in some cases had the effect of reducing or correcting their short-sightedness.
This could impact the nascent space tourism industry.
