Read the next paragraphs about space human exploration

Space exploration to the other planets is mostly done with robots and
computers that are controlled by humans from the Earth. There are so
many problems with sending humans into space on interplanetary voyages
that it will be many years before people set foot on another planet. One
problem with sending people into space is water. Humans require a lot of
water and water is very heavy, making it expensive to transport. Another
problem that interplanetary explorers will have is boredom. The voyage
between planets will take years to complete. In that time, the astronauts
will be trapped within the small living space of their ship. A third problem
that interplanetary explorers face is sanitation. These explorers will not be
able to shower or bathe, creating an unpleasant environment for everyone.
A fourth problem that they will be faced with is gravity. Living in zero
gravity has many bad health effects such as weakening bones. Finally, the
most serious problem they will have is that there will be no help available
when something goes wrong. If someone is sick or injured, they will be
unable to get to a hospital. If the ship breaks down, it will be impossible to
rescue the astronauts. In short, space exploration by humans is more
expensive, inconvenient, and dangerous.     _______________________
