Body 1: Negative side
Ý 1: Operating spaceships requires a lot of energy (from fossil fuels) and releases a large amount of emissions -> deplete the natural resources and cause global warming -> environmental degradation.
Ý 2: Space travelling is dangerous -> high accident risks -> can cause fatal consequences.
Body 2: Positive side.
Ý 1: Visiting other countries is now common thanks to international tourism -> Space travelling is much more appealing -> helps people enrich their knowledge about the universe.
Ý 2: Space tourism development could create more job opportunities -> reduce unemployment -> benefits the whole society.
Space travel has been made commercially viable in some countries for people to discover the universe. In my opinion, while space exploration can be sometimes negative, this development is more likely to better human life.
Making space tourism widely available can bring certain adverse consequences. Firstly, operating spaceships or the rockets require a massive amount of energy from fossil fuels, and they often release a large amount of emissions to the atmosphere when launched, which might contribute to global warming. This will eventually lead to environmental degradation. Another potential disadvantage of space tourism is its high accident risks. Spacecraft accidents, similar to plane crashes, can cause fatal consequences among a large number of passengers and bring other tremendous financial damages when the ship just encounters minor technical errors in space.
However, the possibility of space exploration has many advantages. In fact, visiting a city or country becomes more and more common nowadays with the development of tourism, which makes space travelling a much more appealing option to humans. This type of traveling could help them enrich their knowledge about the universe, such as the geographic and climate conditions of other planets, and discover other mysteries about the space. In addition, more job opportunities, apparently, would be created in order to meet the increasing demand of space tourism, which can help reduce the unemployment rate. This, consequently, improves living standards of many people and eventually benefits the whole society.
In conclusion, despite some adverse effects space tourism can exert, the benefits from space tourism are much more significant than its harmful impacts.
