Today is the 25th anniversary of the Challenger explosion. I’m old enough to remember it, but some of you may not be. Here’s President Reagan’s speech after the explosion happened:
The Challenger disaster was horrendous but the long term fallout was bad as well. There is some danger in expanding the frontiers of the human race. There is no such thing as a guarantee of perfect safety especially on the bleeding edge like this. As everything becomes more feminized there has been less of a push into space. Sure NASA is still around and they still do stuff. Even without the Challenger disaster feminization would have destroyed space exploration, but the Challenger disaster helped move things along.
With feminization comes an overemphasis on safety, and that is death of real space exploration. With feminized schools boys who would have made a contribution to space exploration were destroyed before they could do great things. While plenty of science fiction has been overly optimistic about where we would be with respect to space exploration in 2011, the fact is that we should be at the point in space exploration right now where the moon is like Antarctica is right now (as in a place with science bases and as a relatively expensive vacation destination). We’re no where near that, and feminization is the reason we’re not. Just think of what would have been possible if everything wasn’t so feminized.
