Watch ASAN Conduct The First Protest Of Trump In Space
The folks at the Autonomous Space Agency Network are picking up the torch that began on earth and are taking the anti-Trump message into the great beyond.
Yes, that’s right, ASAN, a worldwide space community that promotes DIY, local and independent space missions, have made the “first protest in space,” a reality by directing a shot straight toward the Trump Administration.
In the picture, which you can see above, the ASAN team printed out a giant tweet from their Twitter account, tagging Trump (@realDonaldTrump) on a message that reads, “LOOK AT THAT, YOU SON OF A BITCH.” Using the Orange Face Invasion’s preferred capitalized typeface, the sign hitched a ride on a weather balloon to an altitude of 90,000 feet, which is not above the Kármán line (330,000 feet), but is in the near-space sphere.
ASAN, and much of the science community, have issues with Trump’s dismissive attitude on climate change and the environment. In less than 100 days in office, President Agent Orange has proposed slashing NASA‘s Earth Science program, created a culture behind denying climate change and expressed hostilities to federal agencies responsible for preserving environmental standards that ensure Americans have access to water, public parkland and clean air.
ASAN’s last-ditch effort might be ignored by this ignoramus, but it is worth the gesture if it can knock some sense into the senseless.
