Two NASA astronauts made space history on Friday, completing the first spacewalk by an all-woman team when they stepped outside the International Space Station.

Koch and Meir, clad in white spacesuits (Is there any other color??? But you just had to add that because they are women) and tethered by cords to the station some 408 km above Earth, stepped into outer space at 7:38 a.m. Eastern time (1138 GMT) to replace a faulty power unit designed to help condition energy stored from the station's solar panels, NASA announced online as it showed live video of the action.

A first attempt at an all-female spacewalk in March was called off because one of the astronauts' medium-sized spacesuits was not configured and ready for the journey.

US President Donald Trump spoke with Koch and Meir by phone from the White House during the final stretch of the spacewalk. "Station, this is President Donald Trump. Do you hear me?" (What - a - turd... )

The president, flanked by his daughter Ivanka Trump and vice president Mike Pence, said the astronauts were "brave, brilliant women" and mistakenly lauded the two as the first women to step outside the space station, prompting a gentle correction from Meir. (hahaha.... Pence... space cadet...)

"We don't want to take too much credit, because there have been many other female space-walkers before us. This is just the first time that there have been two women outside at the same time," Meir, the 15th woman to conduct a spacewalk, responded.
===============================

Why did the circus have to follow two real heroes? NASA should have pretended 'sunspot activity resulting in loss of communications'... Orange Duffer wouldn't have known it wasn't for real.

Oh... my bad... it was DOTARD who said that.

Pence doesn't talk in Trump's presence... just stands there ready to lick his boots.

It looks like the race to the bottom is neck and neck:

sniper, 41 plonks
goatman, 38 plonks
sheepleschism, 26 plonks
dixvillenotch, 22 plonks
nullifidian, 20 plonks

Indeed. If fact the top 18 are right wingers. So it looks more like a race of snowflakes -- the left

If chief moses, aborted monson, angrydad, megatroll snoofy and a few more were righties, they'd be plonked for sure. But they aren't. It just goes to show which side of the political spectrum are the snowflakes and need a "safe place" and which side isn't. The right doesn't need an echo chamber. They don[t need the safe place of plonking.

That aside, everyone but two people respond to my posts regularly. My plonk count has gone way up since I came back, but there has been no cessation of responses. Hmmm Looks like a lot of sock puppets to me.

Thanks, hans for pointing out which side the safe place snowflakes live on. LOL

Frauds and fakes. I have 3 plonkees and haven't responded to them since, even though I know they're out there--thanks to people quoting them--taking shots at me.

Yea. Lots of people create sock puppets specifically to add to your plonk count.

Go get your narcissism checked by a psychiatrist.

I know for a fact of one person who created four of them.

But OK, even if your right, it underscores my point how thin skinned proggies are. You don't see that many righties seeking a "safe place" by plonking. The snowflakes do that.

Congratulations on not being one of those echo chamber snowflakes btw, donnerboy.

How do you explain that high of a plonk count, yet all but two active members respond to me? Hell, I don't think there are even 38 total regular posters here.

#16 | Posted by goatman at 2019-10-19 05:40 PM | Reply | Newsworthy 2

Yes, and after the White House lost contact with the International Space Station, Trump joked that perhaps they had cut him off because they didn't like what he had said to them. He has to always make everything about HIMSELF.

Also, clownie, I never claimed people specifically made sock puppets to add to my plonk count. I said many of them were sock puppets. The patriarch of that sock family probably created them for other reasons.

Tremain, e.g. obviously had at least one created when he was ------ since tremain's birth date is long before rcade took ------ away. I suspect he has several more in the wings.

------ was posting long after tremain's birth date and only an idiot would think they are not the same guy. So, yeah, people make sock puppets for whatever reasons -- not just to plonk me as you claim. But they come in handy when people want to do that.

GOATSHART.... as you can see I have not plonked you. I don't plonk people I once felt sorry for.

As for sock-puppets... YOU are the expert at creating those.

The day you showed your fat face back here, everyone's plonks went up. YOU did that. Even plonked yourself to stay out of suspicion.

I know how your sick mind works. Everyone does, GOATSHART/AVIGDORE. LOL

There is also the fact that you are the most disliked person around here. So your high plonk count might be genuine after all.

Aaaaand another thread successfully hijacked, trolled and destroyed by GOATSHART!!!

This thread is no longer about two heroic women.

It is now all about poor GOATSHART and his sorry lonely life.

Have at it, you fat fraker. My gift to you.

Judging by the gaps in the posting, I think I must've triggered a certain Pakistani whom I have plonked. I'll have to check the 7-11's and see if I can find a frothing one. LOL

I bought a really cool fish at the pet store today.

And BFD women space walking. They're equal to men. If the country and the world want to see everyone as equals, the media needs to stop reporting race, sex, age, religion, sexual orientation, whatever. We are all just people.

Still, I'll bet we get a banner headline someday, "First Homosexual Spacewalks" as if it mattered what he does in the bedroom.

Leave it to the individual. It happens now. Blacks report when they are being treated unequally. Nothing wrong with that. But to report, "Black walks in space" is stupid. It makes it sound like an inferior human did something a superior one had been doing all along.

There's no difference between blacks and whites when it comes to things like this. Why bring it up? It is no more relevant than a red haired person walking in space.

By not highlighing gender, race, sexual orientation, religion, etc. for doing something other people have done.

I learned a lesson from the civil rights era a lot of people (ironically, proggies)_ haven''t learned yet: Different rules for different people is not a good thing. Making headlines about women walking in space differentiates between women and men. That's a different rule because there aren't headlines, "WASP Walks in Space".

Oopsie ------- is a snarky elitist with a McCarthy book. But I'd never consider plonking him. I mean Who TF comes to a website to debate politics by silencing alternative views??

There was an interesting article a few months ago that posited that Goatman is really a troll.

No, it didn't. Nobody gives a ----. Stop making every thread about yourself, you jack wagon.

But seriously, there was an interesting article a few weeks ago that suggested that women make the ideal astronaut for long haul flights (Mars?) in essence because they tend to be smaller and they require fewer calories. Events like this matter if we want to continue to encourage greater equality and diversity among STEM fields. Sorry if reporting on it triggers some of you snowflakes.

There is also the huge problem that some men's vision goes bad in zero-G. By the tome you reach Mars, 80% of your crew would be so short-sighted, they would need to wear thick glasses. And yes, it's permanent. It doesn't get better when you get back to Earth.

Women don't suffer from this problem, for some reason we don't understand... or not to such a huge extent. Perhaps it's because of the rounder shape of the skull that doesn't put pressure on the optic nerve... don't know yet.

But point is, women will be ESSENTIAL for long space missions.

39, of course women dont suffer from zero-G.

Men have no spot for a G, women do.

Also, with no G, some women appreciate that with aging.

For guys, low hanging fruit requires no G.
