Should we continue to send humans into space? Or is space exploration best left to machines?

I think that we should send more robots into space but still send some humans into space.

i agree i think that it is good that people made machines for going up in to space. But i also think that when the astronauts go up into space, i think they should be assigned to see if they can find aliens particles

Well, I doubt we would send enough humans into space to lose control of the planet. Did the people who went to the moon find the world run by monkeys? Unless we all went up there at the same time, I don't think we'd let the monkeys take over.

I agree, I think that we should send more robots into space but we definitely still need to send humans into space. Without humans going into space we will never get accounts of what it is really like up there. It doesn't matter that scientists have created machines that are meant to recreate what the experience of space is like , we need to know from human perspective what it really feels like.

robots will never be able to capture the nuances in space exploration. a robot could not have landed the apollo 11 lander 'eagle' on the surface of the moon...when neil armstrong heard "bingo fuel". the robot would have fired the ascent engines and left the surface...artificial intellegence is no substitute for human intuition or courage.

People are not forced to go to space! Haha. There are millions of people willing and wanting to go to space. Especially the expert astronauts who've worked in the space field before. Trust me, they don't feel "forced" to go to space, they are pretty obliged to go.

I think we should continue to send humans up into space. Robots can only do so much, especially when the people controlling them are sitting behind a desk on Earth. What good does that do? I don't think we should stop using robots all together because yes there are some things that humans can't do, or some conditions that they cannot go out in, but the people controlling them need to be with them. That way if something happens, then we don't send another robot into space to fix it, because there is already someone there. It saves money in the long run because both human and robot are in space and there is no need for an extra trip for either the human or robot. They are both a vital impportance to space exploration.

We should us both because there are somethings that a human can do that a robot cant and things a robot can do but a human cant. Yes it is dangerous but so was exploring the new world and where would we be if there hadn't been explorations into the Americas'. We still need humans and robots it is just a matter of figuring out when they are needed and how to keep eveyone and everything safe and fuctional.

It is important that humans continue to go into space. Without humans in space, we will not advance our technologies and challenge ourselves to meet new challenges. Hopefully, one day, there will be human colonies in space, but the only way to get there is to expand our programs. Robots are necessary for missions which humans aren't equipped for (such as a mission to Mars), so a blend of manned and unmanned missions are necessary to advance the space program. I also think private industry will advance things MUCH quicker than the government and private industry should be allowed to expand space exploration for commercial purposes.

I vote for occasion human use, as robots are not cheap & are oftenly inperfect in some way.

There are many test that can be preformed in space that are not availible on Earth.

    Also, if life is found outside of Earth, the first being from our planet they meet should not be a machine, but a human ambassodor.

If we take that away it wouldn't be more exciting. in my class last year we would listen to people saying about there anvenntures in space. It was much more fun listening it on interviews than in books. but if no humans went up there it would all go away. that was a very nice question and i hope there will be more because i had a very nice time answering it. i love your museum and i will be definnetly be here again very soon. that was my oppinion and i hopee you had as much as a fun time reading it than i had typing it bye:)

Machines can only tell us so much, but a human can tell us what its like to actually live in space as a human. If we ever want to find out if we can live in space, a robot cannot tell us how a human can survive the atmosphere with real life experience. Only a human can tell us that. Robots are too technologized. Only humans can say what its REALLY like to live in space.

I think robots are sufficient to do most of the work, especially since it is cheaper and safer to send automated machines to completely unknown frontiers. However, humans are better suited to handle unexpected situations, so eventual human exploration is warranted once robots have determined there is something or interest in space that is in a human-accessible environment.

Our current aspirations are often limited to what we now know as acheiveable. To say that we can come to an end all conclusion on whether man or machine belongs in space at this point would be ignoring the prospect of future progress on our ability to send both man and machine into space safely and more efficiently in the future. There is no blanket answer to this question as the watered down multiple choice answer implies. Many goals we currently have can be met by machines, but as our goals reach furthur it is likely that human exploration will not be seen as a risk, but as a reward of space exploration.

I think we should send both but we should do robots first then humans to make sure its safe so humans dont get harmed because we can make more robots but can never replace the same person. But also we should send more girls up there. hehe because girls are amaZAYN I <3 1D ONE DIRECTION IS AWESOME

But you have no idea whether or not the US government has enough funding to build robots. And space in general is inhospitable to us, and most other complex multicellular organisms.

Our understanding of space is limited. Us humans have an inherent fear of the unknown. Therefore, it will take some time for us to explore our galaxy, and the others beyond. If you are thinking that "Andromeda Strain"-esque scenarios will enusue, that might take a while, if at all.

Space exploration is one of humankind's greatest achievements we shouldn't give that up just because we have the technology to use robots instead. All the children who dream of going into space may never get that chance if we contiune using robots rather than humans, if they can't reach for the stars where can they reach?

When dangerous things happen, such as blowing up space ships, it is much more bearable when the things blowing up are robots, and not humans. Of course, I'm not trying to play the emotions card. We don't want to admit it but robots are becoming smarter than humans in various fields.

I think that robots should go into space more but they can break down and lose the data.

But we should keep the human travel in space alive. But more recources so they dont coome back dead in the rocket. So let's keep the funding but at a lower price to pay so the people of America happy to help.
