Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, April 05, 2020

"After 20 years of continuously living in low-Earth orbit, we're now ready for the next great challenge of space exploration " the development of a sustained presence on and around the Moon," said NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine. "For years to come, Artemis will serve as our North Star as we continue to work toward even greater exploration of the Moon, where we will demonstrate key elements needed for the first human mission to Mars."

Another key difference from Apollo and Artemis will be use of the Gateway in lunar orbit, built with commercial and international partners. The lunar outpost will serve as a command and control module for surface expeditions and an office and home for astronauts away from Earth. Operating autonomously when crew is not present, it also will be a platform for new science and technology demonstrations around the Moon.

Apollo Applications Program - if only...imagine spending a fraction of the resources the US has wasted on bombing brown people into the stone age on the AAP - we'd have had the AES moon base in the early 1970's and you can be damn sure we'd have a Mars colony by now.

That was repulsive and incredibly racist. Good job. I like how brown people can't leave the stone age because we showed them bombs.

Clearly you didn't understand - US wars in the ME and SE Asia cost trillions of dollars and killed millions of - wait for it - brown skinned people that the power elite in Washington don't consider to be human beings. Both R and D. Monsters all. It's almost like you willfully misread or misinterpreted what I said.

Where's the funding coming from?

They clearly don't have the funds to pull this off anytime in our lifetimes, especially with the Space Force becoming a priority.

So sad.

Also - "bombing them into the stone age" you can thank Curtis LeMay for that wonderful phrase. He was a complete POS. Anyway I'm done with you now. Critical thinking isn't you're strong point.

If we hadn't wasted so much on the ME and SE Asia wars this wouldn't be an issue. Sorry, hind sight is 20/20 and all that and now I'm actually finished with this thread.

Communists killed over a hundred million of their own people. And Curtis LeMay never nuked a brown person.

Tvast death toll in the ME is about a religious civil war in a slave society going back o the 8th century.

You suck at Critical Theory.

Critical thinking, rattymouse...critical thinking. And imagine my surprise to discover I'm part of the power elite in Washington - at least according to you? Where's my personal jet and when do I get to sit in on policy meetings in the White House? It's like there's something stopping you from correctly interpreting the words I'm typing. And now I'll do us both a favor and put you in my kill file.

The thing that cripples the woke is that they do that.

And look, I have my own file cabinet at NSA headquarters. I could be a powerful ally if you understood what MLK believed. But yeah, go be racist somewhere else.

Heh. 'Kill file'. You guys have the weirdest sense of humor.

Of course our Gateway base will orbit the Moon. Who would have it any other way?

Actually there are thousands of military personnel who have come forward witnessing UFOs, apparently acting in coordination with traditional military operations. So claiming that the middle East wars detracted from space exploration is quite a distortion on the facts that these tools not only exist but are perfected and used by our own military for their own purposes.

NASA is a fake space exploration community.

Also, a surface project?! I wish NASA would just stop insulting our intelligence, but they never seem to know when to stop.
