With[ Unclear pronoun ] the[ redundant article/ ] remarkable development of technology,[ As a result of rapid technological development, ] people’s enthusiasm and curiosity to explore the universe show an upward trend[ verbose /many people have become interested to explore the universe ] in current society. However, (some voices arouse that it is, to some extent, a waste of money for the government to fund space travel or space exploration)[ verbose/bad coherence with the prior sentence (make the subject of a sentence echo the subject or the object of the former sentence ]. From my perspective, this opinion is convincing and warranted[ verbose ]. The details are as follows[summarize reasons here ].
First, spending excessive money on space travel and exploration is not worthy. Because those financial investments could make a tangible contribution to society. For example, if the government invests more in infrastructures conducive to social welfare, such as sanctuary and free educational institution, more citizens can benefit from it. Homeless people can find a place to keep warm and spare themselves from starvation. Poor students can afford education without debts’ pressure. In that case, people’s living standards get improved, and the crime rate drops, which ensures social stability and prosperity. Hence, cutting down the expense of space exploration to create more social welfare is of great essence to the government.
What is more, many thorny problems remain to be solved in this world. Those issues are priorities for governments worldwide to consider. For instance, global warming continues and has double-side effects on almost every region. It may lead to severe consequences such as the melting of icebergs and the increase in sea level. Nevertheless, current strategies fail to tackle that problem effectively. If governments do not pay enough attention to that; and spend a great deal of money on less urgent events, bad effects will exacerbate the global problem. Therefore, governments must put more energy and money on emergency.
In conclusion, I contend that the government should reduce space exploration costs, create further social welfare, and focus on existing problems.
