The Fermi Paradox is the question, “where are the aliens?”  Even if only a fraction of starts have planets and only a fraction of those planets have life and a fraction of planets with life develop intelligent life, there still should be lots of aliens out there.  Theoretically, there should 1 billion Earth like planets and 100,000 intelligent civilizations in our galaxy alone.  The sun is relatively young as stars go so many of those alien civilizations should be older and more technologically advanced than us.  This also means that at least one of these alien civilizations should have spread across our galaxy and be on our doorstep.  Even if something like Star Trek’s warp drive is impossible, in the worst case scenario it would only take several million years to colonize the whole galaxy.  Even if a technologically advanced alien species decided to never leave their star system, as long as a small fraction disagreed, that small fraction would over time colonize the galaxy.

So knowing this, where are the aliens?  A possibility is that something either prevents aliens for engaging in space exploration or something that prevents aliens from even developing the intelligence and technology where they would even be in a position to consider space exploration.  And who is a big group opposed to space exploration on our planet?  Feminists working on behalf of women and the female imperative.  If aliens are sexually dimorphic like us, then intelligent aliens may have their own equivalent to women directly or indirectly preventing space exploration.  It could be via alien equivalents to feminists who agitate against space exploration.  Or it could be that alien equivalents to women are preventing technological development in general via having the non-women aliens fight over the women aliens so much that aliens never even make it to the industrial revolution or past the stone age.  Even if aliens have more than two sexes whichever sex controls the more scarcer reproductive resource could still be a logjam preventing technological development.

And that assumes that aliens even develop intelligence.  Take peacocks, for example.  Male peacocks have to spend so much evolutionary resources developing plumage to impress female peacocks that the chances of peacocks ever evolving to intelligence on their own is zero.  It’s possible that aliens are stuck in this peacock trap.

Eventually all these aliens will become extinct.  It has been pointed out that the dinosaurs are extinct because they didn’t have a space program.  That’s because the only way an intelligent species can guarantee long term survival is to become an interplanetary species.  Men like Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos, and Richard Branson understand this and are putting their money towards making sure humanity has a future.  Feminists are doing the opposite by opposing space exploration.  If we follow the feminists, we are guaranteeing our own extinction.

There may be aliens in every corner of the universe, but we will never hear from them since they can’t advance due to the sex of their species that controls the scarcer reproductive resource.  They may never get to the point where space exploration is a possibility for them.  And that’s if they develop intelligence.  Many alien species that could have developed intelligence may never do it because their evolutionary resources are spent impressing their equivalent of women.  In either case, they will eventually go extinct.  Humanity may be the most intelligent and most technologically advanced species that has ever existed and may be the only species capable of preventing its own extinction.

There is no guarantee yet that humanity will become an interplanetary species and prevent our extinction.  We’re close, but we’re not there yet.  The only reason we are this close is because the US both publicly and privately is willing to commit as much as it has to space exploration.  (Richard Branson isn’t American but Virgin Galactic had to be based in the US.)  The US is the only country that has sent probes to every planet in the solar system completing the initial reconnaissance of the solar system.  Without the US, humanity might have been just another species to go extinct that happened to have an unusually high degree of technological advancement.  If this solution to the Fermi Paradox is correct, there will not be aliens to save us from extinction.  We will have to do it ourselves.  Then, we may have to consider a Marshall Plan for aliens to save them from extinction because we are the only ones that can help them.

It’s impossible to talk about space exploration nowadays without talking about Elon Musk, the founder of SpaceX (and Tesla Motors and SolarCity).  Thus, it is not surprising that feminists have declared war on Elon Musk.  For example, this feminist article from The Guardian falsely accuses Elon Musk (along with Jeff Bezos and Richard Branson who have their own aerospace businesses) of working on a secret plan to allow the rich to escape EarthAnother feminist attacked Musk for describing humanity as stuck on Earth as well as Musk’s South African heritage. (She also said that the colonization of Mars was “white colonialism”.)  Another article from The Guardian said that Musk’s work would lead to a #GamerGate takeover of Mars.  Feminist attacks on Musk aren’t limited to things related to space exploration.  Musk was falsely accused of berating an employee who missed a meeting to be at the birth of his child.

Why do feminists attack Elon Musk?  Some of it has to do with his involvement in the tech industry, namely PayPal.  (That is why Jeff Bezos and Richard Branson were attacked along with him.)  Musk is now the most visible proponent of space exploration, particularly private space exploration.  In other words, he can’t be shutdown with politics like NASA can.  The fundamental reason is that Musk’s goals are the direct opposite of the goals of feminists.  Musk wants humanity to survive, and survival requires that humanity not be stuck on one planet.  Musk is working to ensure the future of humanity with his goal of colonizing Mars.  Feminists don’t care about that because they are greedy and it doesn’t benefit them.  Plus, if Musk is successful in colonizing Mars then nerds, gamers, and every other man that feminists hate will have a place to go that is outside of the reach of feminists.  Feminists can’t stand that.

The conspiracy theory that the moon landings were a hoax is still around. Sooner or later it will get new life from feminists.

One reason there is a feminist war on space exploration is that it produces tangible masculine achievements with the involvement of nerdy men that feminists hate.  One example of this is how feminists tried to scrub the Wikipedia on the moon landings to say “crewed” instead of “manned” even though manned is a gender neutral term.  It’s important to remember than no women have ever been on the moon, and the feminist attempt to edit the Wikipedia page on the moon landings shows how much feminists hate it when a man does something without women.

The most common way feminists have attacked space exploration by saying that the money spent on space exploration should be spent “here on Earth”.  (That’s a euphemism for spending money on women.)  This may have worked somewhat when space exploration was primarily a government venture, but even that was limited because space exploration produces knowledge, technologies, and tangible benefits.  Feminist whining won’t work for private space exploration.  A man like Elon Musk will not be deterred by such complaints so feminists will have to step up their attacks on space exploration.

This is where moon landing conspiracy theories come in.  Since feminists have failed to shut down space exploration with the lie that it is a waste of money, the next step for feminists is to falsely accuse space exploration of being a complete fraud.  Moon landing conspiracy theories give feminists the vehicle to do that.  Also, since space exploration has been a primarily male endeavor, they can accuse NASA of being a masculine conspiracy to defraud the government. Feminists have already lied about space exploration such as how The Good Men project lied about a single NASA probe costing trillions of dollars when it only cost $700 million. From there it is not a stretch for feminists to use the lies from moon landing conspiracy theories, especially since only men have been to the moon.

It’s a safe assumption that the moon landing conspiracy theorists are manginas so they will welcome feminists with open arms.

I have decided that the theme on the blog this week will be the feminist war on space exploration because feminists are constantly attacking space exploration from so many angles.  A feminist in the magazine, Scientific American, attacked space exploration as being excessively male (and white and American)Feminists attack space scientists like Dr. Matt Talyor who successfully accomplish new things like landing a probe on a comet over the most trivial of reasons such as his attire.  Feminist website, The Good Men Project, outright lied about NASA’s budget effectively accusing NASA of eating up most of the federal budget.  Feminists have also made space out to be a place where women will get raped.  Feminists have attacked Elon Musk many times.  (I will write about that later this week.)  Feminists have attacked the plaque that was put on the Pioneer 10 probe for “having a man raise his hand in a very manly fashion”:

The plaque shows a man raising his hand in a very manly fashion while a woman stands behind him, appearing all meek and submissive

Here is the Pioneer 10 plaque where a man is being very manly:

And feminist attacks on space exploration aren’t limited to what actually happens.  Feminists have Interstellar, a movie where thanks to space exploration humanity is saved from a dying Earth, as “aggressively masculine”.  They also said that the spaceship in Interstellar was an extension of the penis.

Why do feminists attack space exploration?  The main reason is that space exploration has nothing specifically to do with women.  As we know between 70% to 80% of government spending is a transfer from men to women.  Money spent by governments on space exploration is money not spent on women.  It doesn’t matter that the amount of money spent on space exploration (both by government and privately) is infinitesimal compared to the amount of money spent on women.  Feminists are greedy and want it all.  Attacking space exploration is also an extension of feminist attacks on science such as by Sandra Harding who called Newton’s Principia Mathematica a rape manual.  Space exploration is also very nerdy, and feminists hate nerds as we see with things like #GamerGate.

Something to consider with nerds and space exploration is that space exploration is a way to escape Earth.  In the last several decades, nerds went off on their own and created Silicon Valley and the modern tech industry.  Feminists do not want to see that happen again with space exploration, especially since if nerds move to Mars (or elsewhere in space), they will be out of the reach of feminists.

We have all heard in the news how NASA’s New Horizons probe has reached Pluto.  This is momentous occasion and an amazing achievement in space exploration.  That means feminists will attack it just like we saw with Matt Taylor (and Tim Hunt).  Since feminists don’t have the excuse of a shirt this time, they have to lie like they did with Tim Hunt.  Since there is no opportunity to lie about a single male scientist this time, feminists are attacking NASA like in this article at The Good Mangina Project:

However, for nearly a decade—and longer—America has invested what I would is assume less than half of NASA’s budget on modernizing public education and recreation in the inner-cities.

Spending more dollars on exploring solar-systems than improving school systems is cause for gross critique, not mass celebration.

I don’t applaud America for what my fellow countrymen perceive is a milestone. To the contrary, I shame this rich nation for its skewed priorities. The type of decision making that says unseen space is more valued than an occupied place is not one that deserves respect nor admiration.

And though access to quality public education ranks high on my set of values, which is why I referred to it early on in this piece, other social issues—like veterans’ quality of life, diversity in the technology and news industry, and homelessness—also weigh on me deeply.

What I quoted above is full of lies.  Trillions of dollars have not been spent on space exploration, much less the New Horizons probe.  In reality less than $700 million has been spent on New Horizons, and that is total over a period of 15 years.  NASA’s budget is 18 billion dollars which is tiny compared to the 2015 federal budget of $3.9 trillion.  And that’s only the federal budget.  If we include all government spending (and we should since education as was brought up in the Good Mangina Project article gets money from local and state government in addition to the federal government), NASA’s budget is a rounding error in government spending.
Why are feminists like the author of the article at The Good Mangina Project lying about NASA?  Most government spending is a transfer from men to women.  NASA is one of the few cases where this is not true.  The article calls for more spending on “education”.  That really means give more money to women since women dominate education and public sector jobs.  NASA gets a tiny amount of government spending, but even one dollar spent on NASA is too much since it is not being spent on women.  It’s not enough that 70% to 80% of government spending goes to women.  They want it all.
And what do we have to show for spending on education and “social issues”, AKA spending on women?  Nothing.  Every year education gets worse.  Various other problems get worse.  And the amount of money spent on education and “social issues” grows tremendously each year.  We would be better off sending that money into a black hole.  Ironically, this would require NASA to build a ship to carry the money to a black hole which would probably do more for education and social issues than handing over 70% to 80% of public spending to women.  And it would be cheaper by at least a factor of 100.

This article for The Guardian thinks that Elon Musk’s push for Mars is going to somehow lead to #GamerGate taking over Mars in 50 years:

The first woman to be raped in space has probably already been born. And if that last sentence makes you howl with protest or insist that such a thing just wouldn’t happen, then I’d stop a second and ask yourself why.

I’m a fan of SpaceX, after some initial scepticism. I think it’s usually better to dosomething, however imperfect, than nothing, and I admire people like Elon Muskwho take on the hard challenges, and make progress in spite of naysayers. I think Lee is absolutely right though when she says:

“When we look around and see a homogenous group of individuals discussing these issues – issues that command insane budgets, we should pause. Why aren’t other voices and perspectives at the table? How much is this conversation being controlled (framed, initiated, directed, routed) by capitalist and political interests of the (few) people at the table?”

It’s early days, but if we really want to create a progressive new world then issues like these should be at the hearts of our efforts from the very start. I hope Musk and his peers open up that discussion sooner rather than later, and I hope that people like Lee can take part in it. The last thing we need is to wake up in 50 years and find that a bunch of #gamergate nobheads are running Mars.

This is absurd, but putting that aside, so what? What if all those evil white men (and Asian men since they’re practically considered white men now) leave for Mars? Wouldn’t that be a good thing for people like this? Wouldn’t that mean that Earth would become a paradise without all those evil white (and Asian) men? Obviously not, and whoever wrote this article knows it.

Robert A. Heinlein, the science fiction author, said, “Reach low orbit and you’re halfway to anywhere in the solar system.” That is because the energy required to get from the ground to low Earth orbit is the same as the energy required to get from low Earth orbit to anywhere in the solar system. If you can get to low Earth orbit, anywhere in the solar system is within reach. This is what worries people like the author of article. If it’s possible for a sufficient number of men to get to low Earth orbit, they can escape to anywhere in the solar system. Outside of the moon anywhere in the solar system is too far away to be dominated by a nation on Earth. What they’re really worried about is a migration of men to Mars (or anywhere else in space) who will then give the middle finger to all the women and manginas still on Earth. All the nonsense about women being raped in space and rovers being enslaved is just a really bad cover for this.

It’s similar to how MGTOW drives women and manginas insane because each man who goes his own way can’t be controlled. Men migrating to Mars is the same thing on a larger scale.

Last week, an international team of scientists landed a probe on a comet.  Any reasonable person would have seen this as a triumph in human scientific accomplishment.  Feminists, on the other hand, are more concerned about a shirt that one of the scientists wore.

I can think of no better reason feminism should be kept out of science.  Scientists do real work expanding the frontier of human knowledge.  Feminists are obsessed with meaningless issues like a man’s shirt and are a force against human knowledge.  Just look at the bio of Matt Taylor, the scientist who wore the shirt:

Matt Taylor was born in London, gained his undergraduate Physics degree at the University of Liverpool, and a PhD from Imperial College London. His career has focused on the space plasma measurements, working in Europe and the US on the four spacecraft ESA Cluster mission, leading to a post at ESA which started in 2005 working as the project scientist for Cluster and the ESA-China Double star mission. His studies have focused on energetic particle dynamics in near-Earth space and in the interaction of the Sun’s solar wind with the Earths magnetic field, particularly focusing on how boundary layer interactions evolve, leading to 70 first or co-authored papers. Most recently he was appointed the Project Scientist on the Rosetta mission.

Does any feminist have a bio like this?  Has any feminist done work like Dr. Taylor’s?  The answer to both questions is HELL NO.  This is another reason why effort’s like Maria Klawe’s to replace men with women in STEM is so dangerous.  Instead of expanding the realm of human knowledge and improving the world like they are now, more feminism in science and engineering means that scientists and engineers will be too busy going to “women in computing” conferences and worrying about their clothing to get anything done.

Dr. Taylor made the mistake of apologizing for his choice in attire.  He should have gone on the offensive and defended science against feminism.  There’s a perfect quote from Confucius (especially if you replace moon with comet) that he should have used to defend science:

“When a wise man points at the moon the imbecile examines the finger.”

This week the NASA landed the curiosity rover on Mars. Forbes magazine decided to ignore most of the people who made this historic achievement happen, namely men, in favor of congratulating the few women involved.  The male scientists and engineers who made this happen and did all of the real work are being ignored in favor of women who are doing “important” tasks like providing a twitter feed of the rover.  (If the government was serious about saving money, it could start by having the curiosity rover could easily do its own tweeting without a “social media team” on Earth.)

What would happen if you reversed the ratio of men to women involved with the curiosity rover?  Would the men get any congratulations?  Of course not, but that is a trick question.  If the ratio of men to women was reversed, there would be no curiosity rover.  Instead there would just be a lot of tweets about it.

This week was the 50th anniversary of the first broadcast from Telstar, the first commercial satellite in orbit.  This was the beginning of all the satellite communications technologies from satellite phones to GPS that we use today.  It’s also an example of some of the things that men do such as solve problems and advance technology.

Telstar was built in an era when there weren’t any government imposed roadblocks to men getting involved with science and engineering.  The men who produced Telstar didn’t have to worry about leftists like Obama using Title IX to impose quotas to limit the number of men who can get science and engineering education and bragging about how fewer men than women get college educations.

Obama has said “Title IX isn’t just about sports,” but also “inequality in math and science education” and “a much broader range of fields, including engineering and technology.  I’ve said that women will shape the destiny of this country, and I mean it.”  Women shaping the destiny of the US in science and engineering means that less science and engineering will happen in the US.  Science, engineering, and technological advancement will more and more happen elsewhere or not happen at all.  I don’t know what the next Telstar will be, but whatever it is, it will be created outside the US (and the West) or not be created at all.

This should not surprise anyone.  Feminists have called Issac Newton’s Principia Mathematica, a rape manual.  That shows how much feminists care about expanding the body of human knowledge.  In other words, they don’t and effectively want us to return to the stone age.  The future will always be developed by men, and if you want a future where people are doing something more than living in caves, feminism must die.

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.

I wrote a comment to the Spearhead post on the movie, Avatar:

While Avatar is leftist propaganda for all the reasons described in this post, its worse than that. There is no way the Navi could have naturally evolved on Pandora and not be in the worst kind of poverty that we have ever seen. Their lives would be nasty, brutish, and short. Imagine the real life of a cave man or observe the poorest places in the world to get an idea of what their lives would be really like.

At one point the main character says that humans have nothing to offer the Navi. That’s right because the Navi are luddites who would rather remain completely ignorant of everything around them pretending its one step above pure magic. The Navi have no interest in not just technology, but knowledge and civilization. Of course, given how primitive the Navi are, all the humans on Pandora would have to do is wait until a famine or a plague and then they would have things the Navi want.

Or imagine if something worse happens like an asteroid falling on Pandora taking out enough of Ewa to shut it down. Then what will the Navi do? It’s not like they could fix anything because they treat it as one step above magic. The Navi are completely dependent on Ewa for everything. This will get them sooner or later. One disaster is all it will take.

We hear this all the time that the poorest people in the world (or the Navi) are better off because they live a “simpler life” and “closer to nature”. It’s all bunk whether its in a technologically advanced movie or not. Really, Avatar is slap in the face of anyone who has ever worked to make their lives and the lives of other people better.

I was thinking about this, and Avatar hits on something that I have said before.  Biology is not magic.  The Navi treat their ability to link to animals and trees on Pandora as being “connected” to Ewa.  Such a thing would be all but impossible evolve naturally which means someone designed it.  The Navi are afraid of understanding how anything on Pandora actually works.  In other words they think biology is magic.  In reality Ewa is probably just a computer system for regulating Pandora.  It’s a BioGeoComputer, a computer that spans a planet (or a moon in this case) using biotech, but it’s a computer none the less.

Treating biology as magic is fundamentally female supremacist.  To believe that idea is to believe that women and women alone have some sort of mystical power of life (because women give birth to babies).  Thus the person that believes biology is magic believes that women are fertility goddesses.  Biology can be observed, experimented on, and replicated like everything else in the universe.  There is nothing special about biology.  When you understand how biology works, you understand that women aren’t doing anything special in creating life.  It may not be obvious, but knowing such things helps to depedestalize women.

Going back to the movie Avatar, the Navi fundamentally have female ideals because they don’t want knowledge.  Feminists and other female supremacists don’t want men to have knowledge for similar reasons.  Whether its game or just being able to compare notes on how women are acting, knowledge is power.  This is the reality that stands in stark contrast to all of the ideas that the Avatar movie promotes.

Forty years ago today men did something that has never been done before. Men landed on the moon. This was an achievement unparalleled in history. Before we were limited to just one planet. Even with the lack of manned space missions beyond Earth orbit, even now we have built the basis for civilization that extends to other planets. This is an example of one of the things men do, men push the limits of our frontiers.

As soon as Armstrong walked on the moon, all of the chattering classes (i.e. men who don’t produce anything and women) started talking nonsense about “imperialism in space” and other garbage. Why? Because they produce nothing. All of the men involved in the moon landing from Armstrong to all the engineers who worked on the spacecraft participated in moving civilization forward. These men accomplished an amazing feat.
Many predicted we would have cities on the moon right now. There are a couple of reasons we don’t. One is that when predicting the future a common mistake is the overestimate where we will be in the short term and underestimate where we will be in the long term. However, the other reason is the result of feminism (and socialism in general). Money spent on space, on moving civilization forward, is money that isn’t spent on the black hole of women. Take a look at the example of Walter Mondale. He wanted to get rid of the space program in its entirety. While having cities on the moon by now is overestimating big time we should be farther ahead in space then where we are now.
However, this has not stopped men. A spaceport for private space flight is being built in New Mexico. The first permanent node of the Interplanetary Internet is being launched. Men continue to push forward in space.

One of the things that men do is push the limits of our frontiers. On Friday this was evidenced by the beginning of the construction of Spaceport America in Upham, NM. This is where Richard Branson, the billionaire who own the Virgin conglomerate, is planning on running his Virgin Galactic business which exists to run flights into space.

Lots of people think this sort of thing is a waste. It’s not. In fact it’s vital. Outside of Antarctica and the oceans (and even in that case its the deep oceans) every spot on Earth is claimed by some government. In addition governments have been getting more and more socialist over time. In the past the United States acted as an escape valve that prevented things from becoming too bad. However, this could change with Obama as President. There’s a good chance that Obama will fail with the economy the way it is, but even then what about the next Obama. We can’t depend on the US as the only escape valve for freedom forever. Thus we need more escape valves and that will be in space, the deep oceans, and maybe even Antarctica.
Most of you know that the title of this post comes from Star Wars. Anytime I hear this spaceport talked about multiple someones say that it should be called Mos Eisley. Given that its in the desert it makes sense. Maybe I should buy some land in Upham, NM to start a cantina.
