Debate arguments for/against living in outer space.
- It is inevitable, much like mankind's expansion to all of the continents.
- The scientific value in the biological and sociological study of long term life off Earth.
- The scientific benefit of human research performed in outer space.
- Species protection against Earth based catastrophes. (in June of 2011 a large meteor came within 8000km of hitting the Earth)
- If you purchase a home now for the $30,000-$90,000 cost, once the space city is partly habitable, that value will easily multiply making this an investment opportunity for your family on simple easy monthly payments.
- The view, the experience and the pioneering spirit is something few have experienced in centuries.
- The opportunity to live in an environment where pollution and contaminants are carefully controlled.
- To challenge the limits of human achievement.
- Live in a pesticide, herbicide, steroid and growth hormone free world.
- Live in a world unaffected by controversial trade regulations such as Codex Alimentarius which allows 7 of the 12 most persistent organic pollutants (POPs) in your food.
- Live in a world where health care is governed by preventative medicine not money and huge pharmaceuticals.
- The fact that most life on Earth that is limited to only one natural habitat is endangered holds true to man.
- The propensity of man to destroy/pollute his environment.
-- Man has grown, we are far more conscious of our impact. Our laws will contain stringent guidelines on our environmental impact.
- There are far more pressing Earth based needs than spending ridiculous amount on space development.
-- True enough. Each person chooses the path their life will take. Some choose to help the hungry, the sick or the progress of science and humanity.
- There are many known and potentially more unknown dangers and risks in outer space.
-- There are risks in everyday life on Earth. Our design and strategy, for space habitation, strives to minimize potential human catastrophe.
