BoP shared.
Pro: As the title says
Con: A space race between the US and China would cause more harm than benefits(or equal amounts of both)
This is intended to formulate an IRL debate tournament, as a result, semantical K's are discouraged and if I use it feel free to take conduct off of me. You obviously understand what the title means.
For those who do not understand:
Space Race: To be disputed in the debate
China: The nation that currently occupies the land prescribed in this image (https://th.bing.com/th/id/OIP.2otZKzEbx_3ojzENO-pVaAHaFM?pid=ImgDet&rs=1). Taiwan is also counted towards the idea of "China" in this debate.
U.S.: The nation that currently occupies the land prescribed in this image (https://th.bing.com/th/id/OIP.8vpN-OLMeG_Al0-rv6kOpQHaFL?pid=ImgDet&rs=1). Overseas territories, despite not shown explicitly, are also counted towards the idea of "U.S." in this debate.
---------------------
China and the US are not limited to competing over extraterrestrial areas, so what else the space race might bring is also something to bring up in this debate.
US=United States=America=U.S.
China=People's Republic of China
The nations' powers are to be considered initially to be its present form(2021??). Speculation about the future is allowed but is never as authentic as existing statistics.

I'd love to accept this debate, but I'm not comfortable with being in two debates at the same time. When I'm finished with the debate I'm in now, and you're still interested in having this discussion, I'll be more than happy to take on this topic.

I disagree, but per usual, I don't have the time or energy to debate.

I think we should focus on our current planet and not planets with an uninhabitable landscape (which might become habitable, but only with significant amounts of money spent that I don't feel like paying).
