Nasa is building a new voyager spacecraft that will carry the best of human culture. What belongs on board?
I would love to see the Best Chefs, famous Artists, Musicians, Scientists and Physicians. Nurses to take care of any one on board who gets sick.
All these people will entertain each other as they perform their specific craft. Wouldn’t it be lovely?

What belongs on board simply the best. Nasa’s new voyager spacecraft will carry the best of human culture. Culture is defined as the arts and other manifestations of human intellectual achievement regarded collectively.
2. The ideas customs and social behaviour of a particular people or society.
Culture is the characteristics of a particular group of people, defined by everything from language,religion,cuisine,social habits,music and arts.
Since the Voyager spacecraft intends to take the best of human culture,we have to decide who or what belongs there.Since Nasa is in the United States,is there going to be conflict of interest e.g Americans might think since it’s on our soil,only our culture,religion,language,cuisine,and social habits should be on board.
If we decide on the basis of human culture,that to my mind includes the whole world. There will be skeptics, who will not agree about this subject i.e ‘Who belongs on board’?
What I think is there should be a debate and the participants should come from different culture,religion, language and social habits,the decision should come collectively.
It would be interesting to see how this goes!
