    If we make further advancements in space exploration, will it help us prepare for threats? how? what kind of threats can there be?

    Interesting question. I wouldn't say that space exploration will help us prepare for threats, I think it's more likely to help us prevent a major social economic crisis that will come due to overpopultation and lack of resources.

    Exploring space may allow us to colonise other planets or moons and it may allow us access to resources that are being depleted on Earth. Of course this kind of crisis has still to come but space exploration may be a way to avoid it.
