I Got A Real BAD Feeling About This One

 The Artemis launch scheduled for today got scrubbed. I suppose it’s actually a good thing maybe?

When I was a kid the astronauts were gods. And Mission Control was full of guys smoking cigarettes and pipes. Literally - America’s best people were on the job. All of them were backed up by their own best people. The goal was space exploration and putting people on the moon.


 

Why?

Today I have to ask what the point of this is? NASA these days seems obsessed with diversity rather than space. And… why are they going back to the moon? I heard someone say they are going to build the gateway to Mars on the moon. But… down a gravity well? Even the moon’s will astronomically increase costs for a Mars shot.

I am getting the impression that the only point of all this is about putting vaginas and vibrants on the moon because racism prevented it with the Apollo program. I am not happy at all about the proximity of diversity and the differently-abled… and critical high tech systems that push technology and materials their limits. Those guys can’t fill the pot holes in the roads, and the workings of a flush toilet are beyond most of them.

I hope I’m wrong about all this. But… there are no rainbows in outer space.

  2. NASA can't get their rocket off of the ground , but they've already determined the makeup of the next moon landing team - and skill and ability are not factors that they considered .

  6. I work with nasa, not the smartest I can tell you, very political with posturing and scheming, insular and counting coup. Loved it when before trump their #1 priority was Muslim outreach?

  7. I bet there'll be a catastrophic event (everybody goes boom), which will then result in an Executive Action to shut down NASA and space exploration, effectively handing space exploration and research to the Chicoms and Russians.

    We are doomed.

  12. My cousin, Judy, was the first female offered a job working on the Gemini Project at NASA (BTW, Judy is white - gasp!) but declined employment due to her infatuation with her boyfriend, later husband. Go figure.

    Believe it or not, there were not many black women working alongside whites. I cannot vouch for the efficacy of addition of vaginas and vibrants.
