Peace in Space
There have been a lot of technological advancements over the years. These advancements have made life easier for many people because doing things is easier today than it was years back. Technological advancements have revolutionized a lot of industries, from the food industry to the transport industry, to the manufacturing industry. These advancements have also revolutionized modern-day weaponry. They have made it easier for countries to manufacture weapons, and make the weapons more sustainable. Weapons today are better than they were many years back. They are easier to operate and so easy to manufacture that almost all countries in the world have weapon manufacturing plants. Weapons are important in maintaining peace and order, but they can do as much harm as they can good, more so when they fall into the wrong hands. People today have become smarter, and as such, weapons falling into the wrong hands is not as unimaginable as many people may think.
Over the years, a lot of countries have moved from keeping their weapons in their countries to moving them to space. There has been a lot of debate about this, as some countries are of the idea that placing weapons in space is necessary, and others are of the idea that it is not. It is important to note that many countries only act when provoked. This is why you find a lot of countries placing weapons in space only after their enemies do so. It is an action-reaction type of relationship that needs to stop for the betterment of the entire world. Placing weapons in space is not a good idea because this move will only provoke other countries to do the same. You will, therefore, find the space around the earth becoming a weaponry ground. Many of the countries that place their weapons in space argue that they do so to protect their countries, but it is important to note that there are two sides to this coin. Having too many weapons in space could be what finally destroys the world. Weapons in space have made it easier for countries to attack each other, which only leads to retaliation. A lot of innocent lives have been lost because of weaponry in space. Weapons that are used in space do not separate the guilty from the innocents. They blast everybody in the vicinity of targets, and this has caused a lot of friction between countries.
Rather than weaponize space, various governments should come together and look for ways to use space to make the world a better place. Instead of placing weapons in space, countries need to look at what space has to offer to make life easier in the world. There are a lot of minerals in space, that can be studied and used for development. Rather than place weapons in space, countries need to place satellites to help in things such a weather forecasting. This would help identify whether calamities before they occur, and allow governments to evacuate their citizens before it is too late. Countries need to be looking for ways to create peace in space by removing weapons and placing more productive technologies.
