    The James Webb Space Telescope was launched this morning.

    https://www.jwst.nasa.gov/

    Its ability to image infrared light will allow it to directly see some planets orbiting distant stars. While it is very unlikely that the facility will be able to see Earth-like planets, it will be able to see the reflection of infrared light off planets comparable to Jupiter, and it will be able to see young planets that are hot enough to be molten -- much like Earth was when it was first formed. Detailed information about exoplanets will allow scientists to better understand how planetary systems are formed and give us a better idea of whether our own solar system is unusual.

    Another in the long list of White scientific successes.

    I remember the launch of the Hubble Space Telescope many years ago and the subsequent successful repair missions. This, of course, was when America had its own Space Shuttle and didn't have to resort to hitching rides with the Russians.

    Robert Whitaker RIP was a congressional staffer when the Mule Train Democratic reps were going to stick it in Whitey's eye, they hate NASA, and between Whitaker and Jerry Pournelle a write in campaign convinced the usual white Democratic congressional reps to overrule the Mule Train clowns and save Hubble from a death of no funding. Then when Hubble was botched NASA instead of sending up the usual "First so and so" into space on the shuttle sent 4 stud Navy pilots up to put a contact lens on Hubble.

    Of course we on the Right never exploit the divisions of social, cultural and political left. I guess we are still fortunate that some White and Asian men and women know how to exploit the political process and get funding for these types of things in an environment where White scientific achievement is more a subject of passive aggressive mockery than of admiration.

    Some Negroes say the moon landings were a hoax, because they are envious that all the Apollo astronauts were white.

    All great scientific achievements are by white people: Leonardo Da Vinci, Thomas Edison, the Wright brothers, Yuri Gagarin, Neil Armstrong, Edwin Hubble, James Webb, etc. The non-whites should be grateful.

    Whilst bandying about the achievements of groups that haven't innovated in 1000+ years or claiming that whites stole everything. Many whites actually buy these narratives leading to apathy and a lack of pride.

    It's important to note that whites "punch above their weight" when it comes to innovation, much more innovation relative to population size. This is important to adjust for when comparing accomplishment.

    I have to really pay attention when I read your posts Wile but they always cut through a lot of bullshite.

    I know it's been brought up, but google image (especially you lurkers) American inventors.

    When it comes to certain facts and realities, the silly ass Wokies have to make stuff up.

    There's a great comprehensive list of the most widespread black invention myths out there. I'll hold off on linking to it directly because all the places I've seen it have been on sites that use slurs that aren't allowed here, but it should be easy to find in a search.

    The term "Mule Train" comes from a black lead protest to the gates of NASA in I believe 1969. Now of course the oligarchy that rules us would barely mention that in any sense because we are to believe the Left in all its forms is a united block for "progress", yeah sure.

    The plaque that Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin left on the moon contained these important words: "We came in peace for all mankind."

    Every reasonable, intelligent person on the planet recognized the tone of that and respected the Apollo astronauts, the space program, and their achievements. Even the Soviets congratulated NASA after Apollo 11 landed on the moon.

    Meanwhile, the snivel rights activists were whining "whitey's on the moon, what about us?" All they care about is themselves. All they see is skin color. If they're not getting the glory, they cry and whine like pathetic man-children. Words like "we came in peace for all mankind" go right over their heads.

    Why haven't we had a mission to the moon since '72?

    The American government has been unwilling to finance a return to the moon, yet it spent trillions on Middle Eastern wars for Israel.

    However, if Trump had won the last election, we would now be in the process of preparing a mission.

    Sad. Shows what we've been up to last 50 years.

    And after all this, NASA, and other like companies, will present computer generated images, composites, photoshops, processed images, greenscreen images, and augmented virtual reality but not one photo of whatever it is they present as real. So many trips in outer space and yet not one unaltered or manufactured photo of Earth from outer space ...

    That's not why. NASA has stated they lost the technology and can't get it back (not joking!). In other words, the dog ate my homework is the answer.

    You can still be respectful of largely white created technology and think the moon landing is potentially a hoax.
    Let’s not forget the moon landing was a government operation (the same talented folks who brought you the dmv and the post office).

    The mule train people are ridiculous don’t get me wrong though
