NASA Fights Climate Change Deniers on Facebook
The NASA that got to the Moon was overwhelmingly White and male. The new NASA is quite diverse. And while the new diverse NASA can't conduct space travel, they are good at fighting people with bad opinions on Facebook.
I had the pleasure to meet Paul Kersey, who runs the blog Stuff Black People Don't Like, in Washington DC. Later Paul asked me if I would review is book, "Whitey On the Moon."
I enjoyed the book but it was depressing to see how far we have regressed. As humans, we evolved from the jungle to travelling to the Moon. Now we can no longer conduct space travel. And many of our cities are headed back to the savagery of the African jungle. This book documents and explains the demise of the American space program.
