So, basically there is a lot of hype right now over the US going back to the moon under the Trump administration (or at least gearing up for it). One the many places this topic is catching buzz is on NPR, of course. And, like the exciting adult that I am I had to read the NPR article about this overly dramatized topic that seems to surface every few years.
If any president is going to make it happen, surely Trump will get us back to the moon.
But, rather than focus on the hype of returning to the moon, I found my focus on something that was merely brushed over in the NPR article (highlighted in red above).
The idea of redirecting an object so that it orbits the moon received negative reviews from the space community?
I wonder why…
It wouldn’t happen to be the fact that it was an impossible goal (not that it would have been hard to achieve, but rather unmanageable within the scope of actual reality).
With that, I propose something to the scientists of this world that still cling to the Copernican Principle as an absolute truth. If gravity, relativity, and velocity generate an orbit according to the masses of two opposing objects in the vacuum of space as we are led to believe… then let’s send out an object to orbit the moon large enough to see with the unaided eye, thus… proving gravity, and much of the content that is currently taught as truth today (all be it still just speculative theory).
And that, my friends, is why this asteroid moon orbit mission received negative reviews from the space community. Because, they would essentially have to prove something that today is still mere speculative theory founded on the backs of only a handful of men.
If an orbit truly can occur, and space really is what we are led to believe via artist rendering after artist rendering, then prove it by sending out something to orbit the moon that the entire world can see from their back porch.
You want to inspire space exploration like Trump is claiming to desire, then that would be the way to do it.
But, who are we kidding… I am the ignorant one who doesn’t think space is real, remember. Leave the real proof to artist illustrators like NASA employee R. Hurt (now there is some real proof. Talk about art that inspires a generation to explore; those brush strokes… that photoshop highlight… Mmmmhhhh).
What a joke. Space is fake.
And if you don’t believe me, just scroll back up and take a good hard look at Trump and that astronaut. Literally take a long hard look at it.
