Discovering the Infinite Universe
Nowadays, in the 21st century, our modern, civilized, war free society instead of facing the anticipated economic and social welfare, it encounters severe problems resulting from a variety of devastating phenomena, such as scarcity, overpopulation and dreadful diseases.
In particular, people argue that mankind has to open the doors to more extensive space exploration, while some others maintain that reallocation of resources on earth will be more effective solution against the plethora of threats which plague modern society today.

To sum up, in my opinion, the answer to this dilemma lies in our history. Past civilisations have spent millions on exploring the “New World” and nearly all successful civilisations have been willing and eager to explore.
