What are the benefits of Mars and Moon mission?The space missions all around the globe are timely conducted to get the technological up-gradation in the terms of network, mapping, defense, and many other such works for the nation's importance. Amidst such programs comes the Mars and Moon missions that are not only the subjects of scientific curiosity but of the nation's pride and prowess too. I don't have much knowledge of the subject but keeping launching satellites program aside, these Mars missions are mainly performed for the signs of lives over the planet. In the quest to find the new planet many million dollars are being spent all around the globe and India is not an exception too. I don't know for sure if these programs are beneficial that much the preferences are given to them mainly for developing countries. Yes, India has done some tremendous work, and due to its cost-effective programs, she can be a market leader in having other nations launched their spacecraft. But having said that, as a world community whole, should we deploy so much money to the programs to find a new planet, or are these programs having some long term benefits I am not aware of?
