Is it more important to explore space or to explore the oceans?
The space is more interesting, but the oceans are more important to us, so.. The oceans may be.
I think the oceans should be a priority. There are tons of things that are still left as mysteries in our planet and discovering if possible every single of them is a must. I can relate it to how people should strive for success. Before anything else, we must evaluate ourselves, determine our strengths, and find solutions to our weaknesses.
Happy to see someone even asking this question...thanks!
I would say that space and the oceans are of equal importance.
While a lot of our history remains in the oceans (and I find documentaries on the subject fascinating) I think that our future lies among the stars. Whether it's reaching new worlds (like Mars) or potentially communicating with alien life, there is literally no limit to what we can find in space. And, though this might sound a little bleak, if our world starts to die, space will be the only place where we might escape.
I think the oceans are more important. I wouldn't want them to be exploited, but I think there may be plants and animal life there which may contain cures for diseases. By learning more about how everything below the waves interact, we can also learn how to better conserve the resources. While it is true humans can destroy even the things we know a lot about, I believe the more we know about the oceans, the less likely we'll be to cause major, irreparable damage. We need to learn all we can about the oceans before we start worrying about what's out there on other planets.
This a hard question .... so I choose both. I don't think either one is more important than the other. I think they are both important, not necessarily equal/unequal but important. Our time now is focused on exploration of space which makes sense. All this new technological breakthroughs, it feels like it's only natural to look up to the stars. We have the resources to do it, so why not? I think it is a matter of time, right now is the time to look to the stars. It's all about where time takes you. Very interesting question
Well if they stopped wasting money on space research, & started spending it on planet earth, planet earth would be the greatest place in the galaxy!....I mean "WHY" are they even bothering with space?, as i for one do not want to go & live on planet effing MARS!lol....What's wrong with these government morons, because that's what they are moron's!....Or are they cleverer than we give them credit for, & instead of spending 100's of billions of tax payers money going to the moon, instead spent it on other things?....I mean c'mon in 1969 they went to the moon?, really?, while China in the year 2014 have no idea how to get there!lol.

We know less about our oceans than we do about space. Should do more to explore our own planet?Should we divert funding from the space program to do this?
