It’s becoming more and more obvious that Obama’s fundamental transformation of the military and NASA keeps chugging on. No matter who has the big office, the only real agenda is leftist politics. And so NASA, whose space program was crippled, perhaps irrecoverably during the Obama era, is now all in on Muslim self-esteem.

Who exactly has been harmed or offended by the Siamese Twins Galaxy?
But when your final frontier is political correctness, there are always new galaxies of virtue signaling to explore, even as you remain mired in the gravity well of your increasing incompetence.
