Should The Space Research and Exploration Program in Florida Continue?

The Debate


You are living in Florida. You have always dreamed of being an astronaut. Now, after years of preparation, you have been selected to join the NASA corps of astronauts. Preparations begin for your first shuttle flight when you begin to hear talk about the government stopping the financial support for space research and exploration. They have asked you, and a number of other astronauts, for help to save the program. What do you do? How can you explain and defend the impact that space research and exploration has had on the economy and culture of the state of Florida? The future of NASA and space research and exploration is in your hands. What will happen to the economy of Florida? Will space research and exploration continue? Work with your fellow astronauts to continue space research and exploration in Florida. Be prepared to defend your thoughts on the continuation of the program.
