#1 NASA needs $$$$$$.
NASA discovers something just in time for BUDGET submissions just around the corner.

eg. Mars rocks found at the South Pole indicate Life on Mars. Hubble pic's indicate life on Venus.

So show me plans to build and develop a USS Stargazer class ship with "warp drive" before 2060. Then come talk to me.

#2 But - the Hubble be dead!

Oh.

Astronomers re-examined Hubble observations from the last two decades to find this evidence of water vapor.

#3 Translation: They knew about it for decades but held on to it until they needed additional budget.

#4 Strange life from Ganymede! Oh Yessir!
We could splice up a novel plague,
put the Chinks through the stressor.

4 YEARS AND $40 BILLION LATER

Hunh! No molecules of life, Perfesser?

#5 With SpaceX getting the win for Europa this is a chance to snag the $2B from Bezos.

Jeff Bezos offers $2B incentive to NASA to include Blue Origin in moon plans

#6 Think I saw where Hubble was repaired. And Webb should go up this fall. (Hmm, Webb, Hubbell, where have I seen those names together before...)

#7 Actually I believe Hubble was able to switch to a 3rd backup or something.

#8 Has Bezos actually tried a different approach, like, say, actually launching something to orbit?

#9 First 'penis' in space! Jeff Bezos's phallic Blue Origin space rocket universally trolled
