The magnificent sight on the left (more about which can be found here) summarizes everything that the space science and engineering community is about, and everything that the insane persons in the White House and the GOP are not.

I once had the immense privilege of meeting the Chief Engineer of the ground segment of the US's Space Program. He is one of the few people who can fully appreciate how the work, knowledge and care of thousands of people in many organizations in different countries leads to what we can see here.

In space, reality can seriously bite you in the ass.

I am waiting hopefully for it to do the same to some people on the planet below.
