Kamala Harris to head up National Space Council

If the heading to this thread doesn't fill you with alarm, then it should do...

https://www.space.com/national-space-co … ala-harris

Kamala is possibly being placed there to put the globalists' kibosh on Musk's plans for Mars colonisation.

It's one to watch very closely. We need to analyse any statements she makes in her new role.

Re: Kamala Harris to head up National Space Council

Louis,

The Vice President has been filling a leadership role in Space Exploration since Lyndon Johnson set the precedent.

I will definitely be interested in learning how VP Harris handles this additional responsibility, although I have much greater positive expectations than you've expressed in your opening post.

She already has a heavy work load.  I hope she hires / enlists people with the appropriate background and qualifications to advise her.

May I note you are seriously violating your own rules about not cross-commenting from one thread to another. smile

There's a lot going on in the space arena these days.

PS ... thanks for the live at the moment updates on the SN15 test today!

I'm glad the ship landed, and grateful the fire was extinguished.

I doubt that anyone will do anything that she speaks of as she has had no military time.

Maybe because she is full of **** like this: 'VP wants more diversity in the National Space Council’s industry advisory group'.

So basically, no real leadership or vision at all.  Her main priority is to put more black people in the advisory group.  So selection for that group will now be made on the basis of skin colour, rather than meaningful contribution.  What a waste of oxygen that woman is.

Re: Kamala Harris to head up National Space Council

This one is politics so take it with a pinch of salt

'One former Kamala Harris staffer puts it this way: “With Kamala, you have to put up with a constant amount of soul-destroying criticism and also her own lack of confidence. So you’re constantly sort of propping up a bully and it’s not really clear why. '

U.S. declares ban on anti-satellite missile tests, calls for other nations to join
https://spacenews.com/u-s-declares-ban- … s-to-join/
VP Harris: A commitment to not destroy satellites in orbit should become a 'new international norm for responsible behavior in space'

WASHINGTON – Vice President Kamala Harris announced April 18 that the United States will ban direct-ascent anti-satellite (ASAT) missile tests that create orbital debris.

“These tests are dangerous and we will not conduct them,” Harris said in a speech at Vandenberg Space Force Base in California.

The self-imposed U.S. ban on destructive anti-satellite weapons tests is an effort to start an international push to develop “new norms for responsible behavior in space,” she said. Harris called on every nation to do the same.

Re: Kamala Harris to head up National Space Council

Let's impose artificial restrictions on our own behavior that our enemies will never impose on themselves.  What a brilliant military strategy.  I guess we never thought of that.  Apparently, neither did any other person with more than a day of military training, because it's so profoundly stupid.

Somehow this cackling loony toon manages to come off "dumberer" than President Biden.  I didn't think that was possible.  The moment you think Democrats have elected or appointed the biggest idiot imaginable, they simply present you with an even bigger idiot.  I know it's intended to show you how wrong you were for thinking that Democrat idiocy had an upper limit, but still.

Whenever you elect Democrats, expect a clown show.  Whenever they're not elected, expect Democrats to put on an even bigger clown show to distract attention away from their last disastrous performance.

When U.S. Vice President Kamala Harris announced in an April 18 speech at Vandenberg Space Force Base that the United States would ban the testing of destructive, direct-ascent antisatellite (ASAT) weapons, it was not entirely surprising.

Current ISS before its dumped into the ocean seems to be 2030 at present. Many modules are quite old but many are young still to make them into something new.
