This topic is my chosen topic for my English assessment, and i have taken a supporting stance on the topic. I personally believe that the benefits; ranging from spin-off technologies such as methods for cleaner energy, more efficient systems and the interent; the knowledge it brings to the human race; the many people inspired by it; the economic benefits including how it is regarded to have a positive-to-overwhelmingly positive Return on Investment (from 1:1 to as high as 1:9) and also how there are advantages that cannot be measured ahead of time (such as the possibility of establishing contact with an extraterrestrial race) far outweigh the costs.
I have put this forward for debate mainly out of personal interest - i would love to hear other stances on the topic, even if they are toxic against my own (but knowing the good people of the Route, that will not happen) - and also I would like the chance to further improve my work and written debating skills.
[Off topic, but as a man of science and the devil's advocate, I might do regular science debates]
