The reasons why outer space matters is because it is from here that one can see other life forms beyond the Earth’s surface. It is also from here that we have the ability to view other universe or alternative dimension. A common question raised by most scientists is if there are other life forms out there, and if not, why they are not visible to us. The answer to this is a complicated one and involves many variables. But first we must understand the reason why outer space matters.
To begin to understand why outer space matters, we need to look at astronomy. Astronomy is simply the study of celestial bodies like our sun, moon, planets and even stars. There is an immense amount of data available on all of these bodies. And through telescope imaging, we are able to see into other dimensions. In fact, we can actually see ghosts.
The reason for this is due to the fact that our entire solar system is made up of nothing more than hydrogen atoms and oxygen atoms. Yes, we do have other elements present in the solar system, but they are so low in concentration that it would be very difficult to see them. If we want to use these elements in order to make fuel for our star ships, then we would have to mine those other elements out of our solar system, which defeats the purpose of using what we have. Thus, outer space is important. It allows us to study other solar systems in our galaxy and even in other galaxies outside of our own. We also get the opportunity to study the properties of these other faraway galaxies in order to learn about the properties of our sun.
Another reason why outer space matters is because it helps us better understand our environment here on earth. For example, it is well known that the effects of a large asteroid hitting our planet are still being studied right now. The space rock will tell us all about the chemistry of that space rock, as well as how the interior temperature of that space rock may change. Knowing about such things helps us plan our strategies for escaping such impacts in the future, whether or not we plan to build our star ships around such “asteroids”.
Finally, outer space can teach us about life here on earth. When we explore other planets in the solar system, we get the chance to observe different types of life, and that is important. Why does outer space bring out such characteristics of life here on Earth? It’s because when we study outer space, we learn about the chemical composition of water, to life forms living in ocean waters, and all the other characteristics of alien oceans, lakes, and streams.
Will we ever know the answers to the questions above? Probably not anytime soon. However, if we do know the answers, then maybe someday we will have the ability to travel to other star systems and find new planets out there. That could mean a whole new way of looking at the universe and looking to our own planet for solutions to problems that we may be having with aging and other problems. Therefore, I encourage you to discuss this with your children, to help them understand why outer space matters in a post-pandemic world.
