    SATIRE - NASA Delays Artemis Launch After Realizing Female Astronaut Forgot To Fill The Rocket With Fuel After Last Trip

    ORLANDO, FL — NASA officials were forced to postpone the eagerly anticipated Artemis launch after discovering a female astronaut had failed to refuel the rocket following its last mission.

    "We had everything prepared and made sure the rocket was fully equipped for its trip to orbit the moon, but we were left scrambling for solutions when we realized the fuel tank was left nearly empty," NASA engineer Blake Rumsey said in a prepared statement announcing the delay. "We've lost count of how many times we've reminded her to make sure the rocket is gassed up after using it."

    Katie Schmidt, the astronaut responsible for refueling the rocket after its last mission, maintained that she was certain there was enough fuel left after parking the rocket last time. "I could have sworn I made sure it was full," Schmidt told reporters assembled at the Kennedy Space Center when asked about the discrepancy. "And this isn't that big of a deal, right? I mean, it's totally different from that time I spilled my latte on the controls and caused, like, a million dollars in damage."

    At publishing time, NASA engineers were working to nail down a new date for the launch of the moon-orbiting Artemis mission and using the extra time provided by the delay to give their female astronaut additional training. "It's an ongoing struggle," Rumsey said. "We're still not sure how she managed to actually back the simulator into the wall while she was putting on her makeup. I mean, it's stationary. How is that even possible? Anyway…diversity, right?"

    This morning the news was quick to report that the first moon landing 50 years ago didn't have any women or minorities on board, but the next one will. Well, isn't that special?

    I think this mission was super diverse! Details about one of the US space program's darkest moments are revealed in "The Burning Blue: The Untold Story of Christa McAuliffe and NASA’s Challenger"

    . . . McAuliffe, 37, was a Concord, NH, social studies teacher who had won NASA’s Teacher in Space contest and earned a spot on the Jan. 28, 1986, mission as a payload specialist.
    She was meant to be the first civilian in space, a fearless woman who set out to prove that "teachers have the right stuff, too," as one of McAuliffe’s friends put it in the book. Instead, she ended up as arguably the most well-known name in America’s worst space-related tragedy.

    . . . Growing up in Framingham, Mass., young Christa Corrigan was always fascinated by space. She idolized John Kennedy for his push to the moon, and as a seventh-grader in 1961, she watched Alan Shepherd become the first American in space.
    "But she wouldn’t have made much of an astronaut anyway," Cook writes, "a chubby Girl Scout with no knack for science or math who got sick to her stomach on carnival rides."

    . . . As Kennedy Space Center director Bob Cabana said later, "It was like they were saying, ‘We want to forget about this.’ "

    Captain of the U-Boat in the movie "Das Boot" after barely surviving a crash landing on the floor of the ocean over 900 feet deep, well below crush depth after a British air attack requiring hours to repair the damage and stop the flooding: "You've got to have good men" (in the crew, or the ship wouldn't have survived.)
    Comment: I think the moral of this story is that if you are put on a mission or job that is advertised for its "Diversity, Inclusion and Equity" aka "DIE" instead of ability and competence, best to let someone else join that mission and take your seat in the Shuttle!

    The last time they tried something "special", didn't some teacher chick do 120,000 ft. skydive over the gulf stream without a chute?

    Had trouble finding the original article so am linking this as it is close: https://sites.psu.edu/aspsy/2020/10/...nger-disaster/
    . . . There was national, group, and political pressure on NASA and Morton Thiokol, the company that built the solid rocket boosters to have the Challenger launch on time. NASA had averaged five missions a year after the projected frequency of the space shuttle program was 50 flights a year. How could they keep America’s interest if they weren’t having as many missions as originally promised? They diversified the astronaut crews with women, people of color, and scientists . . . . President Ronald Reagan was also announcing the launch at his Union address that night. The only option that NASA and Morton Thiokol felt they had was to continue with the launch as scheduled. As we know, that faulty decision making led to seven people losing their lives . . .

    With the Apollo missions only 2 astronauts actually landed on the moon each time. Today, one must be a woman and the other a minority means straigth white men will not be represented... I do not feel this is inclusive enough. Besides, is there any incel or MGTOW scheduled to land on the moon? And what about lesbian asian trangender male dwarves, the most oppressed minority that exist, when will they be represented?

    I think NASA's goal is to recruit a diverse, inclusive crew from the Star Wars cantina scene types but leaving out Han Solo since he was a straight white male pilot . . .

    This reminds me of the BE-4 engine from Blue Origin that was supposed to be ready for flight in 2017.

    It is still not ready.


    What could possible be delaying it?
