Israel’s recent moon mission is a major source of excitement and optimism for me. I constantly contemplate humanity’s collective mission and purpose, and the best answer I currently have is the exploration of space. Exploration of space could result in enormous strides for human understanding by potentially connecting us to other life forms and is also a necessary step towards the continuation of the human species given the deterioration of the environment. I am frustrated by the lack of unity among humanity and think a shared objective could certainly help us to want to exist peacefully amongst each other. That shared objective could definitely be space exploration. I realize supporting Israel is a controversial opinion to have; however, Israel’s investment in space travel as well as many of their other innovations (advances in desalination, meatless meat, etc.) demonstrates their commitment to humanity as a whole. Support for a nation seeking a better future for all of humanity is now more important than ever.
