  • How Spacecrafts will Change

    I think that the more work people put into space technologies, the better spacecrafts will be. I don't think they will risk as many lives with the new technologies.

    I think that with more students studying space that they might create better instruments for looking at planets from a distance, like the telescope.

  • Discoveries

    I think that in 40 years we won't have flying cars, or be able to live on the moon, but we might find water on more planets and signs of life by using new technologies.
