For now know the ultimate goal of space exploration could be classified as expansion. We have achieved as much as any species on this planet can for now. The parts of the Earth that we cannot reach we look to the stars for the answers we can't find here.

The ultimate goal is whatever you make it. Probably differs from person to person and from organization to organization. You could look up the mission statement of NASA and ESA (and all the other space agencies) to see what they are up to.

 

As far as I am concerned, the ultimate goal is intergalactic domination, with me as your evil tyrant.

the ultimate goal of space exploration is, quite frankly, the same as the explorations we have done and are doing here on earth. " To Know. " we as a species are a curious lot and are fascinated with the unknown. as far as how much of the earth we have explored, though not completely sure, given the fact that the earth is mostly comprised of oceans and, that, we have only touched the outer most portion of its land mass, we know very little of our own world, as well. But we will learn given enough time and effort.

+1. We are curious by nature. Our curiosity is what allowed us to try new food and methods of survival back in our more primal years.

 

Bring on the learnin'!!!

For some the goal was "to know". Those people were closely followed by those who had the goal "to conquer, plunder and possess".

 

I'm sure that once we get a settlement on Mars, the first thing we bring there is scientific equipment... and the second thing we take there is weapons.
