Abstract

With the rise of privately owned space programs/organizations, such as SpaceX, the amount of federal funding towards NASA has come into question. In the modern day, the government is providing money to an organization that is being matched by privately funded organizations, like SpaceX, when there are more pressing matters affecting us here on our own planet. One of these pressing matters is environmental conservation. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is researching ways to save life on our planet, such as ways to stop climate change, stop global warming, and reduce carbon dioxide, which will affect us in the near future more than events occurring in space. The EPA works at preserving nature and the climate due to its ability to drastically and rapidly change life while space exploration is changing our lives at a slower rate. Therefore, it is more important to fund agencies like the EPA, rather than NASA, thus meaning that the EPA should get an increase in funding, while NASA should receive less.
