Advantages

LOLIPOPS

UL FIND THE CHEESe in the moon craters

- general prestige for countries like China, Japan and India

- expanding our environment and saving humanity in case of global destruction

Disadvantages

- the possible loss of life; yet playing golf can be deadly too

- possibility of infection from alien viruses and bacteria yet comets spread these too

- high costs which could be used to help the needy or sponsor other experiments, yet money spent on all the space programs is paid to suppliers, services and personnel who again pay taxes. No cash is ever "lost" or "wasted" in space.

- There would be a high economic loss and some difficulty may appear.
