NASA takes one small step for a woman of color, one giant leap for wokeness

NASA has announced that the Artemis Project now has the formal goal of "placing a White man on the Moon."

By all standards, that's pretty racist. However... just kidding. NASA really didn't say that.

What NASA really said is that the explicit goal of the Artemis Project is to land the first woman and first person of color on the Moon.

Which is both sexist and racist.

NASA shifts goal from space exploration to space diversity

NASA has been a driving force of scientific innovation and advancement ever since its creation in the 1950s.

After more than six decades of space exploration, you’d think NASA would be an organization free of petty politics and idiotic logic.

As an agency dedicated to the future, for example, one might imagine that NASA’s top priority would be hiring the brightest, most talented people they can find, irrespective of irrelevant characteristics like skin color, gender, or sexual orientation.

Sadly this is not the case.

Science is once again taking a back seat with the agency’s “Artemis Project,” whose goal is “to land the first woman and first person of color on the Moon.”...

If the entire crew of the next voyage happens to consist exclusively of people who identify as seedless watermelons, because those are the most qualified individuals for the mission, then it shouldn’t matter. It shouldn’t even make the news.

But instead they’re going to spend $86 billion of taxpayer money to show the world how woke they are.
