Just in time for July 4, when the great American psyOp of “we’re #1” reaches its apex, we have the latest NASA space comedy – encoded with the beloved 911 numerology.
Oh dear, here they go again – exulting like teenagers pulling of ‘another good prank’…
To their credit, they’re at least ‘being somewhat honest’ in their description of their ‘Jovian feat’…”The people behind NASA’s Juno mission rode a wave of emotions Monday night (July 4) as the spacecraft approached Jupiter and then, after a picture-perfect, 35-minute engine burn, became just the second probe ever to enter orbit around the giant planet.”
Yup. ‘Picture-perfect’ it is. Or more correctly still, ‘cartoon-perfect’.
The cost of the “Juno mission” (and its “nine science instruments”)? Well, $1.1 billion, of course!
