Extra Credit Paper Writing Assignment guideline
The goal of the paper you submit is to pick one of the topics below, research information related to the topic, and write a persuasive paper / essay to try to convince me (and others) that your position on that topic is the right one. There is not a “right” or “wrong” side to these topics, do not be afraid of going against “conventional” thought.
The paper –should- be at least 2 pages in length, printed in a clear size 10 font, and must be referenced.
The topic list is:
Should Pluto be reinstated as a planet?
Given the current economic times, should NASA’s budget be cut?
Were the Apollo missions a waste of money?
Should government regulate private space development?
Assuming the technology exists, is the terraforming of other planets (within or outside our solar system) ethical?
