All people mess up once in a while, especially when they are tired or drunk.



Only Donald Trump doesn't drink!!







Just imagine the crap that would come out of his mouth if he did drink.

It was just another one of his gaffs I am sure he didn't actually mean the moon is part of Mars. Still, it is funny as hell that he comes off that way and remember this tweet will be saved for posterity. Those that are all pissed that people are laughing at this are some of the same ones who go nuts when anyone on the left misspeaks.

To address his tweet with seriousness he seems to misunderstand the importance of setting up a permanent base on the moon is. The moon is the logical first step that needs to be taken to colonization off Earth. We not only need a base there we need to industrialize the moon which all have their unique problems such as refining iron and steel without carbon available. It can be done at a much higher energy cost.there are benefits to less gravity as well as drawbacks. Him downplaying the moons importance and the monumental effort it will take is poor form IMO.

In one hand he's saying "NASA should NOT be talking about going to the Moon - We did that 50 years ago" but then saying the Moon is part of a Mars mission .... so why shouldn't they be talking about the Moon ?

I also find it telling he puts defence before Science.
"Defense and Science!"

M.I.C

Space exploration should be about science above anything else , you have a black budget for defence.

Actually, the Washington post fact-checked it. Trump is wrong.

Twitter erupts over Trump claim that the moon 'is a part' of Mars

"For all of the money we are spending, NASA should NOT be talking about going to the Moon - We did that 50 years ago," he wrote. "They should be focused on the much bigger things we are doing, including Mars (of which the Moon is a part), Defense and Science!"

Clearly Mr. Trump left out the the two words, β€˜β€™going to β€˜β€™. He meant that we should focus on going to Mars and that part of that project would be to include making visits to the moon.

Even I, an ardent critic of Mr. Trump find It difficult to support his critics that are making a mockery of themselves over this.



The size of it suggests Earth had a massive collision that either ripped it from earth or from the object that collided with earth or mix of both, and Mar is the best choice of what did it.



Interesting...so he could possibly be correct about the orange of the moon.

Solar power, decent energy storage and solar forges... Make aluminium instead of steel, no need for carbon.

I mean we could potentially go crazy with energy production on the moon, we wouldn't have the same implications we do on earth in regards to say nuclear power. There's thorium and uranium on the moon.

I'd argue the moon should be taking the majority of our time and resources regarding space, as you say industrialize the place. Once we can do that with ease then we can focus on Mars. Till then visits to other planets should be based on exploration and research.

Imho anyways.

We all know logic such as this isn't used in the decision. It will be who makes the money and fame.

Much ado about nothing. Just like EVERYTHING else on Twitter (and social media): pure performative outrage.
