Some people believe that the government should not spend too much money on the outer space exploration. Do you agree or disagree?

We have always tried to find out if we are alone in this infinite universe or not. For this, we have spent immense revenue and so far, we have not met with success. Hence, some people come forward with an argument that governments must spend less on space exploration. Considering the rising needs of people and their problems, this argument does hold some valid ground.
Governments must limit their spending on outer space exploration for many reasons. First, the cost of such projects is in trillions, which is higher than GDP of many developing countries in the world. Secondly, there is no assurance of success of such projects. In such instances, all money along with precious fuel and other valuable material can go to total waste. Finally, we all know the most infamous accident of Space Shuttle Columbia, in which. NASA lost billions of dollars and highly qualified astronauts.
On the other hand, it is always important for us to know more about space. It is extremely necessary to learn and to understand the space in order to better comprehend our Earth and its possible future. Moreover, we can also protect our Earth from possible threats like comets or any other acute changes that may happen in outer space. Finally, such exploration may become successful in future and we may come to know about other planets where life is possible.
All in all, I strongly believe that we ought to find out more about outer space but certainly not by sacrificing the needs of people of our Earth. Their basic needs must be satisfied by governments before allocating budgets for outer space exploration.
