Keep in mind that just a few decades ago, trains or flight was revolutionary, and many people believed it was impossible or would result in some harm
to humans. When Gagarin went to space, it was a completely unknown territory, and there were doubts whether he would survive. Same goes for the first
spacewalk by Leonov.
And now, we have a space station where people live and work, furthering our quest to explore space.
Just because you don't understand the value and validity of it, doesn't mean it has no value or validity.
Personally, I want to set my foot on Mars, or to see Saturn and Jupiter upclose with my own eyes. That will obviously never happen for me, but it's
kinda cool to know that, one day, our kids or grandkids will do so.
