November 18, 2021by Editorial Team
Dangerous and difficult

Spectacles to be explored around us are numerous. Those that are most dangerous are sometimes most rewarding. The results are always highly rewarding for humantity.

Exploration is curiosity put it into action. It is the driving force behind humankind. Exploration has started ever since the dawn of time, because it is at the center of everything we do. From birth, we learn through experience and we can make better decisions tomorrow from the information we  acquire today. Exploration leads us to a wonderful journey into the unknown,  enlightening us with a sense that nothing is impossible


A natural human trait

Humans are naturally curious  and are eager to learn new things, be it the  customs of a culture or a new skill. As we explore into Technology, it helps  create new jobs that make our world better. We might look for new ideas such as new sources of energy that makes life better. 

As we take a step inward into the domain of self-exploration, we need to look at our own thoughts, feelings, behaviors and motivations with a curious questioning. Having a deeper understanding of ourselves has many benefits. It empowers us with an insight that helps us improve self-esteem, communication and relationships.


Expand the scope

Next, we shift focus from ‘self’ to ‘space’, as we pan our vision with a wide angled lens to space exploration.  Humans have always been interested in exploring unknown, new worlds, extend the boundaries of scientific and technical areas. Our desire to explore and discover new things have  benefited civilizations.  Explorers such as  Marco Polo, Christopher Columbus, Amerigo Vespucci, John Cabot, Ferdinand Magellan, Francis Drake,   between the 15th and 17th centuries, proved Aristotle’s theory that the world is round. Columbus also discovered a new continent called America.  Space exploration has hugely benefited  society,  answering numerous questions about our place in the Universe and history of our solar system.  


The drive behind the action

Humans have always been curious to find hidden mysteries of the universe that lie far beyond our earth. How was the earth formed? Is there life outside planet Earth? How big is the universe? All these and many more questions are still unanswered and we will only find their answers by exploring space. As global warming has become a serious concern for the whole world, scientists have started a search for an alternative planet to live on.

However exploration is also a mindset. It requires an amalgam of mental faculties, such as focus, preparedness, conviction, perseverance, creativity, curiosity, resilience, and a risk taking appetite. The outcome of exploration has always been therapeutic and altruistic, benefiting societies for centuries, and is of utmost importance in the current times.
