I think space exploration is very important thing , it's not a waste of time and money, i think is something of develop, something of research and science.

Hello everybody¡
I think space exploration is a luxury to respond the question if we are not alone in this world, or if we can do something against an extraterrestrial threat that could destroy the humankind.
I think it is better to invest and resolve more urgent and important problems than really can improve the chance of remain on long term, as the global warming, the massive extinction, the deforestation, and promote the sustainable living.
Thank you.
