In other words, what are the benefits of space exploration? Of course looking for other places to live is one, what are others do you think ?

@Michael Johnson,
PRACTICAL:
1. Mineral rights whereas I insist the first trillionaire in history will gain his or her wealth from establishing a mining empire from this industrial practice;
2. Future home worlds;
3. Detection/prevention of Earth shattering asteroids, comets, etc... objects.

ACADEMIC:
1. Furthering astronomical sciences including the history of our galaxy and universe;
2. Finding other life and civilizations that may(may have) exist(ed) in other solar systems and galaxies;
3. General curiosity that may or may not kill the proverbial cat.
