In supporting for more progress of space exploration, this would speed the time for discovering life outside of Earth and finding a stable planet to seek shelter to when Earth is at its downfall faster.

First of all, if we don't want to go the way of the dinosaurs someday, we need to protect ourselves against the threat of being hit by a big asteroid. Such a collision between the asteroid and Earth would unleash a firestorm of heated debris and fill the atmosphere with sun-blocking dust, which would wipe out forests and farm fields and starve the human and animal life that it didn't immediately kill.

Second of all, our burgeoning population, rampant greed, and thoughtlessness about environmental consequences have already done pretty severe damage to our planet. According to a 2012 survey of research, most scientists estimate that Earth has a carrying capacity of between 8 and 16 billion – and we already have a population of over 7 billion. That's led some futurists to argue that we should be preparing to colonize another planet, and soon. Your life or those of your descendants might depend upon it.

So, a wisely funded space program enables us to spot a dangerous object long before it strikes Earth, and send a spacecraft to plant and detonate a nuclear explosion that could nudge it off its collision course.

And exploring space is just great anyways because it's endless, there are always places to explore in space. And we may even solve the secret behind the invisible matter, dark matter.
