Since the beginning of time, exploring the Universe has been a dream of humankind. Humans have always been curious about and observing the night sky since Aristotle’s era. Traveling many centuries ahead, we turned our attention to the heavens when Galileo pointed his optical instrument called a telescope in the night sky. Humans started to wonder what was beyond planet Earth. With the advent of the Industrial Revolution, scientific discoveries got a huge boost in laying the foundation for the groundwork of Space exploration.
The discovery and exploration process got real impetus post World War II when the Russians sent the dog Laika into space. Thus, what initially began as a race to prove technological superiority. It later turned into a quest to learn more about our solar system which later took shape of exploration by carrying out manned and unmanned space missions.

Before we go further and talk about “Space exploration”, the term needs to be understood. Space exploration simply means discovering and learning about the contents of space and trying to widen our understanding of various concepts about space that are related to human life and how they govern our lives.
As we discussed in our previous paragraph about the history of space exploration, the main aim of it was to answer some important questions like, “Why are we here? How did it all begin? Are we all alone? What comes next?” Humans have always looked to walk on the path of self-improvement since the time they came into being during their evolution.
The returns from the space explorations are far too many. It has opened doors for many new perspectives regarding the study of the Earth and the solar system. This has opened up a window to many amazing inventions from canned food systems and water purifiers to complex technologies like the Global Positioning System [GPS].
These inventions inspire people in this new generation from various walks of life like artists, tinkerers, and scientists to come up with various thought-provoking solutions to various problems and the desire to overcome the challenges that arise while bringing these solutions to life, thus providing one solution to the unemployment issue. This helps in bringing people together who are apart from each other for various reasons, thus fostering collaborations and expediting the process to solve the problems. Space exploration serves as one of the reasons that inspires the upcoming generation to pursue STEAM. [Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics]
Other benefits of Space exploration lie in the field of advancement in various fields like robotics, material science, medicine, traveling, and computer technology. As numerous benefits of space exploration are coming to light, many young entrepreneurs are looking to come up with start-ups that are providing various expertise needed in these explorations. which would create more job opportunities. Thus, from the economic aspect it is expected to give a major boost to the global economy.
There are many space exploration missions on the horizon like Artemis, mars colonization, exploration missions to Enceladus, etc. These missions further aim to make us an interplanetary species shortly which would help us deepen the understanding of our solar system.
