Biofuels have been proven to be a viable and effective replacement for fossil fuels, and using biofuels to power spaceships is entirely possible with a little research and development. The technology is already available, and as auto racing and the experiments with jets and other aircraft have already shown, most of the time no conversion is needed to use biofuels instead of fossil fuels. The future of the earth depends on ending the dependence on oil and other fuels that are highly polluting. This also extends to any spaceships we send into outer space. There is no reason that biofuels could not work in spaceships the same way these fuels work in other vehicles and machines.
As experiments with jets and race cars has shown, biofuels can be a safe and effective alternative to oil based fuels. If these fuels work in the racing and flight applications, there is no reason to believe that they would not work to power spaceships as well. NASA uses hydrogen fuel cells as one power option, but rocket fuel is used to lift off and get the space shuttles into the outer atmosphere and space. This fuel is very damaging to the environment, with a lot of harmful emissions that affect the environment and the level of air pollution. Switching any fossil fuels with biofuels can go a long way towards preventing an even bigger environmental crisis. This goes for cars, trucks, planes, and even spaceships. If it is possible to run a race car on biodiesel and on ethanol, and come in first, then any vehicle can perform just as well with biofuels as it can with fossil fuels. Fifty years ago, man thought that traveling into outer space and visiting other planets was impossible, and spaceships only existed in science fiction stories. Now we go to outer space and other planets regularly.
Biofuels can be the answer to our dependence on petroleum and other fossil fuels, and this includes fuels used in the space program and the spaceships and shuttles. In the near future, more space travel than ever before will take place. There are already space tourists, who pay millions for a trip into space and a chance for a once in a lifetime experience.
