Yes yes, it may seem a little off-putting to see so many billionaires compare their wads of cash and trying to be the first to secure their real estate in the great beyond of space. But hear us out – there are some interesting ramifications of putting a little less cynicism and a little more optimism in the ventures of the great beyond.

The amount of progress we’ve made in such a short amount of time (in perspective with earth’s history) is staggering. This industrious rise in new and exciting innovations partly comes from the ventures we’ve made and pushing the boundaries of what we can potentially achieve on earth and beyond it.

Encouraging and actively campaigning for further innovation in Space technology can bring an incredible array of solutions for the problems we face here on earth. This article will go over just a few of the sectors.


Space tourism

Rocket propulsion systems aren’t exactly suitable for a trip of the freeway, however, the technology that goes into companies like SpaceX have a direct correlation with the innovations being made in cars on earth. More reliable, powerful, and efficient engine designs can be studied and repurposed into the electric cars of tomorrow. And we are not just saying that because the largest electric car company (Tesla) and SpaceX have the same boss.


One of the biggest drawbacks to space travel has always been the huge amount of waste for the rocket systems necessary to gain orbit. Life on earth has also become more or less focused on the concept of keeping everything as reusable as possible, enter Mr. Musk himself who has spearheaded the concept of reusable rockets. While it has taken a little bit of time to perfect, the notion that a rocket can be reused opens the door of possibility for that same concept to be realized in our day-to-day.

Renewable Energy

Harnessing the power of natural elements in lieu of fossil fuels has also been a huge consideration for the people here on earth. Understanding and utilizing more renewable energy can only benefit the world at large. Many space projects have the notion of understanding the harnessing of solar energy to be a major point for a lot of missions.

There’s no other way to see it – supporting space flight and innovation is supporting a better future and much stronger technology.
