Well the answer to u're 'thought' is a pretty long one.

To make it a lot simpler...it's all part of our mission to answer two basic questions....

1) Who are we?

& 2) Are we alone in this universe?

And on the question abt this helping us.....we need to look at the bigger picture. All these space explorations are small steps towards making sure tht humankind continues to survive after we run out of the resources on this planet. It's a long and complex story. Probably i shldn't have put it tht way.

For pro. answers....chk this full story.
