English Club with Mila on Space

Fun Fact of the Day: "Apollo 11 was the spaceflight which landed the first humans Americans Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin, on the Moon on July 20, 1969" (http://en.wikipedia.org). 
Topic: Space  
l.What is astronomy? Do you consider this an important field of study? How does astronomy affect us in our daily lives?What do we really know about outer space? Do you think that humans have a clear conception of what lies in space or have we barely begun to understand what's outside our own planet? 
2. How do we "use" space? For example, some people think it's a good location for dumping trash and hazardous waste. How could this practice help or hurt us? Is it best to stay out of space or to further explore it and maybe use some of its resources? 
3. What do you think about further space exploration, such as the current NASA mission on Mars? What do you think scientists will find there? How will this be of interest to people on Earth? Do you support expensive space exploration pursuits, or do you think that this money is better spent elsewhere? 
4. Do you believe in the existence of other life forms, i.e. "aliens"? Why do you think there are so many "conspiracy theories" (stories) about aliens? Do you think that they are based on evidence of their existence or are they more of an entertaining or even scary idea? Have you heard stories of UFO sightings? If so, do you believe they are real? 
5. Do you think there is another planet like Earth, in this galaxy or another? If so, what do you imagine it's like? If another planet that sustains life were found during your lifetime, would you like to travel there if possible? 
6. Have you heard of the "Nibiru cataclysm" or "Planet X"? Some individuals believe that it will collide with Earth during the 21st century. Do you think this is possible? Can space exploration prevent potentially catastrophic events from happening on Earth?
