Guess what bigots, this astronaut is actually an African American. Lol, just kidding.
Sometimes I just sit down and dream of the stars. It would be so awesome to start really working on space exploration, the colonization of new worlds, the development of wild new technologies…
Unfortunately, we have much more important and pressing matters to attend to. Namely, we have to allocate all our resources to caring for these Blacks.
A planet with Earthlike temperatures around the nearest star in the night sky. This seems almost suspicious, like a hint that the world was created by a pulp science fiction novelist. Yet it appears to have come to pass. And I, in turn, feel that in discussing this news with you, I might be a Heinlein or an Asimov, writing fake news to drop into the first act of a galaxy-colonization epic.
Pretty cool. But you know what would make it better? Third world slums.
Thursday, astronomers and other scientists working on the Pale Red Dot project announced that they have detected a planet with at least 1.3 times the mass of ours. It is orbiting the red dwarf star Proxima Centauri, which is a little more than four light-years away. This distance is no bagatelle, but it is reachable within one lifetime by means of propulsion technology we can imagine building now. We do not need to imagine “wormholes” or some other improbable physics frammis to provide travel above light speed.
The scholars behind the Pale Red Dot plan, funded by the consortium of European states that operate the European Southern Observatory in the Chilean desert, do not disguise that they have been influenced by the priorities and the romance of science fiction. The idea was to search for exoplanets in our neighbourhood, among the low-intensity, small stars that provide the easiest readings for new planet-searching instruments.
Yeah, the idea that science should be about reaching new heights of grandeur and expanding the dominion of humanity is basically silly fantasy at this point.
Trying to accomplish things like this would be racist, as long as brown people are still suffering out there.
The role of science in the modern world is to make faster iPhones and other “niggertech” to pacify the masses while they’re being dispossessed and humiliated by Jewish elites and hostile invaders.
Aerospace research isn’t about reaching for the stars, but just about sending up more satellites to extend cell-phone coverage to more places. Until we shake off the yoke of liberalism, anything else remains science-fiction.
