It is high time that we as a global community stop carrying on pleasure trips and non consequential space mission. NASA states that a space craft burns two hundred and fifty thousand liters of fuel every minute during its launch. With the ever increasing pattern of the rich going on pleasure trips to space and aeronautical companies striving towards feasible business models in space travel, it is going to be tough to control this global warming accelerator.

It’s sad to see Indias man on the moon mission being pursued with such vigor as the country suffering from irregular weather patterns causing loss of life and property.

Its time that the world prioritizes its space program keeping in view the impact on mankind. We have made the mistake once it will be foolish to pursue space programs in the name of progressive science. There may be a day where we find a microbe millions of light years away but no one to appreciate it.

We as global citizens must make sure that we can have a sustainable environment and strive towards fulfilling the same.
