Government in some countries spent huge amount of money on space exploration programme. I completely agree with the idea that it is waste of money, and that funds should be allocated to public services.
 
There are several reasons why space programme should be abandoned. Firstly, it is extremely expensive to teach scientists and other staff involved in the space programmes, and facilities and the equipment also comes at the huge cost to the government. Secondly, these programmes do not benefits to our lives, it is just the vanity project for the politicians. Finally, many mission to the space fails completely, and  small technical error could cost the astronauts their lives. The challengers space shuttlers disasters showed us that space travel is extremely dangerous and in my opinion, it is not worth the risk.
 
I believe that the money from space programmes should go to vital public services. One reason is that, it is cheap to train doctors, teachers, police and other staff than it is train to scientists and engineers for space research. In other others  public servants do job that have a positive impact on every member of the society. For example, we all use school, hospital, road and received securities from the police.  If government reallocate the money  spent on space travel, many thousands of people could be lifted out from the poverty or enhance a better quality of life.
 
In conclusion, my view is that government should spend money that benefit all member of society, and it would be wrong if government waste money that do not improve everyday lives.

Government in some countries spent (have spent) huge amount of money on space exploration programme. I completely agree with the idea that it is waste of money, and that funds should be allocated to public services.

There are several reasons why space programme should be abandoned. Firstly, it is extremely expensive to teach (train) scientists and other staff involved in the space programmes, and facilities and the equipment also comes (come) at the huge cost to the government. Secondly, these programmes do not benefits (benefit) to our lives, it is just the vanity project for the politicians. Finally, many mission to the space fails completely, and  small technical error could cost the astronauts their lives. The challengers space shuttlers (shuttle’s) disasters showed us that space travel is extremely dangerous and in my opinion, it is not worth the risk

I believe that the money from space programmes should go (be transferred) to vital public services. One reason is that, it is cheap (more economical) to train doctors, teachers, police and other staff than it is train to (to train) scientists and engineers for space research. In other others  public servants do job that have a positive impact on every member of the society (???). For example, we all use school, hospital, road and received (receive) securities from the police.  If government reallocate the money  spent on space travel, many thousands of people could be lifted out from the poverty or enhance (enhanced) a better quality of life.

In conclusion, my view is that government should spend money (in a way) that (might possibly) benefit all member of society, and it would be wrong if government waste money that do not improve everyday lives.
