  • Will we find any other living beings in our galaxy? And what about the others we see through our telescopes?
  • Could there be more advanced civilizations in outer space?

It’s a well known fact that exploring space can be highly  expensive. At time like this, when economies are going through harsh times and people can barely earn enough to survive, governments are questioning whether they should invest a few more millions in their space programs. What’s your opinion? Is space exploration worth the effort?

Well, NASA is going to have its budget (orçamento) considerably reduced and that will cause major damage in its investigation programs.

Listen to Prof. Michio Kaku speak about his worries.
