Dear Sneha ji!!
I too really wonder "What if there are traces of water in Red planet..... I should have ample water in my city"
"What if some planet comes in between two planets(occult..).... I should bother if anyone comes in between me and my friend"
But.. this is not the right thought.We need to have curiosity to learn new things,exploring new things only then life becomes wonderful,so scientists belong to this category of people who want to know something about heavens ....We need to understand the beauty of those expolrations only then we can feel for it.
I feel like posting this here:
The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity.
However each idea,each necessity and want is relative.Whatever is a luxury to me may be a damn important necessity to you.So everything is relative.
Have a glance at this:
Gravitation cannot be held responsible for people falling in love. How on earth can you explain in terms of chemistry and physics so important a biological phenomenon as first love? Put your hand on a stove for a minute and it seems like an hour. Sit with that special girl for an hour and it seems like a minute. That's relativity.

GOSH! Not againnnnnnnnnnn
I have got the some rebuttals... again . After this... I won't post Rebuttals here in this thread
[quote=Dr Uncle]1, The resources put into studies of things here on planet Earth are in Millions. The resources put into space are in Billions.[/quote]
Creation of the Internet: The USSR's launch of Sputnik spurred the United States to create the Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA, later known as the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, or DARPA) in February 1958 to regain a technological lead. ARPA created the Information Processing Technology Office (IPTO) to further the research of the Semi Automatic Ground Environment (SAGE) program, which had networked country-wide radar systems together for the first time. J. C. R. Licklider was selected to head the IPTO, and saw universal networking as a potential unifying human revolution.
After much work, the first node went live at UCLA on October 29, 1969 on what would be called the ARPANET, one of the "eve" networks of today's Internet
This research took billions too...
[quote=Dr Uncle]2, Do we have to land on Mars or determine the nature of rings of Saturn to have GPS in our cars or get live sattelite telecasted televised events or know about the holes in ozone layer?
3,Why is it that the same instruments that were developed for astronuats first and then became part of everyday activity were not developed for common people to begin with?[/quote]
Space exploration has also led to many indirect benefits. The challenge and difficulty of the space programme, and its ability to draw on some of the finest minds, has brought about great leaps in technology. The need to reduce weight on rockets led to miniaturisation, and so to the micro-chip and the modern computer. The need to produce safe but efficient power-sources for the Apollo missions led to the development of practical fuel-cells, which are now being explored as a possible future power-source for cleaner cars. The effects of zero-gravity on astronauts has substantially added to our knowledge of the workings of the human body, and the ageing process. We can never know exactly which benefits will emerge from the space programme in future, but we do know that we will constantly meet new obstacles in pursuit of our goals, and in overcoming them will find new solutions to old problems.

Hence.. for every Major discovery.. small discoveries are made for them... Necessity is the mother of invention
Dr Uncle... i would agree to disagree here...
Abhijit ji!!First you need to take a break.You are walking soo much and please give some time to your brain to think!!!
See !!! If Leaders in India think "Ayyo!!! Still somany people are not having basic aminities like pizza,makhan ,pasta ,nastha and cell ;Why should we bother about Information technology,Space technology...." then India might have been an underdeveloped country,now at least India is trying to maintain its status as "developing country".So I feel research and development should go hand in hand .Common man has nothing to do with research as he is not part of that research but he needs to wait to enjoy the fruits of research.

I don't want to pick a fight...just address these three points and I will be happy as a pig in pile of dirt!
So by making this post ,Yo!!! I feel like a modern day's Abraham Lincoln getting out of his vehicle to help a pig come out of gutterEdited by mythili_Kiran - 13 years ago
