Letter 1 argues that space exploration is necessary for technological advancement, economic growth, resource sustainability, international cooperation, and human curiosity. Letter 2 argues that the billions of dollars allocated for space exploration could be better spent addressing urgent issues on Earth, such as the climate crisis, poverty, and lack of access to education and healthcare.
