Well, it’s official. Japan will remain a member of the International Space Station until 2030.
And of course, the next year it will fall to its death over the middle of the Pacific Ocean in “Point Nemo,” joining hundreds of other satellites at the bottom of the industrialized nations convenient sea junkyard.
Surely there is a better way to dispose of spacecraft that doesn’t involve polluting the ocean.
Well before then, Russia will no longer help out (obviously). And that’s problematic, since the propulsion part of the ISS is the Russian module.
Hmm. What to do, what to do…
How about we go to Mars instead?
Nah. Let’s have separate countries like India and China make their own space stations and then encourage private companies to make their own, too!
Um. What’s the point?
Ah. The “new space race.”
And don’t forget that Venus is “a Russian planet.” 🤦♂️
These moron politicians shouldn’t be in charge of humanity’s future. The Earth is a round planet the last time I checked, everybody sharing the same air and water.
