The more people you have adding more funds and resources into space exploration, the quicker and better the advances will come. If the U.N. really wanted to fele important they would try to establish an international space agency to unite all the nations programs and work together.
With that much more funds collectively together, it might be feasable to establish a moon base within 20-50 years and possibly some space mining? Hey it will never happen if it doesn't begin you know.

Education, Hospitals, Aids, famine, etc, etc etc, are resources well in need of much needed funding, not launching a Indian in space. I've said this before and I'll say it again, space is not the final frontier, the inner reaches of the human condition on this planet are.
