One of the wonders of space is the planets and one, in particular, has retained humans’ attention for more than forty years. A large amount of money has been funded so that one day we may propel ourselves to Mars and build a civilization. Nevertheless, the money invested in this project is not worth it for the time being. This money could undoubtedly be spent adequately on increasing quandaries such as health care or poverty which could have severe repercussions on the economy, including the future of our beloved children.

It is utterly absurd that $1.69 trillion will be misused on Mars while, each year, 805 million people perished from lack of nutrition. Also, 22,000 children are dreadfully vanishing each day because they do not have even a crumb to eat. Such money would be profitable to provide food for our children. It is unquestionably ridiculous that in 2019, approximately ½ of the world's population - 3 billion people are living with an amount which is less than $ 2.50 per day (DoSomething.org).

All in all, it is up to us, Earth residents to be acquainted with these circumstances, and to make our voice heard because the space industry doesn’t comprehend our struggles nor our misery. For humans, Mars is a dream that can wait, it is a dream that cannot help the citizens of Earth who are affected by a disturbing reality.
