Task：Some people want the government to spend more money looking for life on other planets, while others think it is a waste of public money and there are many problems on the earth. Discuss both views and give your own opinion.
In conclusion，both sectors have their reasons for requiring money and I believe it is better to invest in solving urgent problems like environmental issues and food shortage since it may lead to chaos and social instability if policymakers fail to settle these problems.
From my own perspective, the search for life in other planets should be a long-term goal for every country, but governments should adjust their budgets according to their financial conditions. Exploring the outer space is really costly and not all countries could afford such an expense.
Personally, I do think that there should be a balance between the money spent on the immediate issues and the future ones. Undoubtedly, such pressing problems as housing, education, and medicare ought to be taken care of by the government, but it is also the responsibility of the government to prepare for the future of the Earth. Seen in this light, a reasonable investment on the life on other planets is perfectly justifiable.
