Disadvantages:
- astronauts risk their lives to install equipment for research
- failing space equipment hitting the earth and killing/wounding people
- 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 supplies and personnel who avian pay taxes. No cash is ever "lost" or "wasted" in space.
Advantages:
- more accurate forecasts because they can use satellites to monitor the pressure of wind and temperature
-mining minerals on the moon and planets
- learning more about the universe and its creation

If we send these space shuttles or artificial satellites to the space, then the each and every thing in the world has a expiry date like this these space shuttles also have an expiry date. So the dead materials very harmful to our self because if they collide each other they will fall down to the earth. That make big damages to the earth itself.

I haven't done much research into the cons of space exploration and research, but one of the largest ways we benefit from space research is the inventions which we enjoy on a day to day basis which stem directly from NASA research or other space research. Some of these are:

- the fire-proof clothing used by fire-fighters
- safety grooving on roads, which helps defer water from the road surface and has reduced road accidents by an estimated 85% since it was first implemented.
- baby formula - a bioscience company in Marylin was testing the potential of algea as a food source in space exploration, and found that one of the algea additives contained aspects close to human breast milk.
- scratch proof lenses - the film used in the average Lens for glasses was actually developed by NASA
- medical imaging
- smoke detectors - the first ever smoke detector was invented by NASA and used in 'skylab' the first ever space station.

Advantages are that the research helps knowing more about the universe and also helps in research and discovery. Disadvantages is that it uses a lot of money for equipment, money wasted cannot be regained and failure here is not considered a success. The loss can affect the economy. The research is not always accurate.

The answer is : Its has a lot of advantages.
Space Research does not require so much money.
We can take the example of USA which uses only 0.8% of the total $4 trillion budget on space research.
USA is considered as one of the leading countries in space research.
There have been numerous inventions due to the research on space projects too.

Some of the cons of space exploration are that it requires a lot of money to finance the trip which can be rightly invested for a more sensible reason-like helping the needy or sponsoring experiments regarding the betterment of people.
Further understanding of the unviverse is an advantage. A disadvantage is the cost required to conduct space exploration but nothing ventured nothing gained.
