Topic 2: What do we want future space exploration to look like?
The Hayabusa-2 spacecraft released a capsule that was supposed to contain rocks from an asteroid, and the capsule safely landed in Australia on December 6. To celebrate this success, I would like to pick up the topic of space again, although we already discussed space exploration around four years ago. Some people argue that space exploration is a waste of taxpayer money, but I believe that the previous missions have given mankind a lot of knowledge and will continue letting us get one step closer to answering the ultimate questions of where we came from and where we are going. The Hayabusa-2 has already started another mission, traveling to a much smaller asteroid. There are many more missions on the horizon, and the space business is expected to grow significantly in the future. Why don’t we talk about the future of space exploration?
1) What are your thoughts on recent and near-future space missions?
2) What impact do you think space-related business will have on the global economy or politics in the future?

4) What do we want future space exploration to look like?
