I think we are witnessing the start of the "scramble for Moon," which will end in the division of our only natural satellite between several powers. The concept of borders on the Moon sounds a bit far-fetched, but if there is some way to generate profit, military advantage, or even "just" national pride there, the Moon will be carved by invisible lines like most of the Earth is.
I don't know if it's the news or it's just me, but it seems to me that the Trump administration was and still is pretty focused on undoing what the Obama administration created. Anyway, they're morons for doing so.
Her tone was direct, honest, and searingly empathic.
Yeah, well, Trump will find a way to block all testimony. Because that's what the innocent do. :\
Throughout her career, Collins has been socially active. She is a representative for UNICEF and an advocate for the destruction of landmines and suicide prevention. She always has been more than a singer.
All those picture are delightful and emotional.
The real issue is we simply don’t know what it’s doing to our bodies yet. It’s now in our water, our air, and our soil. We are breathing it, and eating it every single day. That could end up creating problems we haven’t even begun to understand yet. Not to mention the impact it’s having on every other organism in the world. We know fish and wildlife eat large pieces and die, but what happens when the micro particles make it into their reproductive organs?
A fragment from the video (I didn't read the article, I watched the video instead):
"But how beautiful is this product??
Not just because of the hardware, not just cause of hardware...
No, no, no!
But because of how productive you can be on it!"
Not my comment, but truly my thoughts:
"Genuinely makes me sad that the leading figure of the American progressive movement is an old ass guy in his 70s that’s having heart problems, with any potential successors to that image being either not as good, or too young and inexperienced."
Besides the fact that would be incredibly expensive, even after you've made it to space, getting to the sun is really, really hard. You essentially have to cancel out most of the Earth's orbital velocity.
We produce millions of tons of trash daily, and it requires an insane amount of rocket fuel to get things to space. Saturn V requires 6 million lbs of fuel to carry only 280,000 lbs of cargo. 21 lbs of fuel for every 1 lb of cargo. And that's only to Earth orbit. Getting to the Sun is much further. We'd be out of fuel in day one...
They were many. Hilarious indeed, except two or three of them. People can be very creative when they are challenged.
