Question 5:
Do you think it is important for astronauts to return to the Moon? Why or why not?
Answer:

Students' answers will vary. Some students might think it is important to return to the Moon because we can learn more about the Moon or how to live in space. This experience would prepare us for a mission to Mars. Other students might think it is not important for astronauts to return to the Moon because it is very expensive. We could use the money on Earth to help solve important social problems like homelessness and hunger.
