Combine efforts to explore space

Space exploration is probably the next frontier for mankind as resources on earth are beginning to deplete but there needs to be a combined effort by nations in the bid to find out if space can be of any use to us.

Currently, the pace of exploration is frantic with nations trying to outdo one another while there are other countries waiting in the wings to also be part of a growing community of explorers trying to unravel the mysteries of the universe.

While all this bodes well, the desire to explore space, experts in the field contend that the rivalry should be toned down and instead replaced by a sharing of knowledge and resources and information between space exploring countries.

This information and data collated must be passed on to countries that are lining up to begin their own space programmes to assist them also to come up in the world stage as far as exploring space is concerned.

There must also be provisions made for space travellers and tourists and this not only can become a boom industry but also a source of revenue which can be used to fund further research into trying to know the workings of the universe.

While all can be said and done, no stone must be left unturned, as astronauts risk life and limb to venture into the great outdoors in trying to piece together information and also to find out if earthlings are not alone in this universe.
