We develop technologies and ways of using those technologies that are ways to improve life on Earth. But even more important than that, I believe space has a way of universally inspiring people. Making folks want to do very challenging things to the best of their ability is what I think human space exploration does most for humankind.

Space exploration and scientific discovery inspire people. The International Space Station seeks to share that inspiration as much as possible through amateur radio conversations between crew members and students (250,000 participants and counting); Story Time from Space; opportunities for students to program station computers, cameras, and robots; and programs that send student-designed investigations to space.
