“The ships hung in the sky in much the same way that bricks don’t.” ―
With news that makes your heart pound and your mind soar beyond the painted night time sky, or something like that, NASA is earning every penny of its $19 Billion budget for just this year, coming up with shyte like this:
NASA headed towards giant golden asteroid that could make everyone on Earth a billionaire – via foxnews.com
Psyche 16 is nestled between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter and is made of solid metal.
As well as gold, the mysterious object is loaded with heaps of platinum, iron and nickel.
In total, it’s estimated that Psyche’s various metals are worth a gargantuan $10,000 quadrillion.
That means if we carried it back to Earth, it would destroy commodity prices and cause the world’s economy – worth $75.5 trillion – to collapse.
We’ve known about Psyche 16 for a while, but its potential to cause havoc on Earth was recently touched upon by a veteran miner.
But bringing back an asteroid of this value could completely wipe out our global economy.
Fortunately, the space agency is taking the trip for scientific purposes and isn’t planning on conducting any mining.
OMG…please Amy, tell us what this is…
Proper f**kery, indeed.
“heaps of platinum, iron and nickel,” and all whole helluva lot of purified bat guano, and all for a few billion – what a deal!
The folks in Flint, Michigan…who can’t seem to get non-lethal drinking water for the past five years, or the innocents both here and in sovereign nations whose lives might be spared if the psychopaths in Washington spread a bit of the $19 Billion spent on artists renderings of space guano, or of the $700 Billion+ sent to the military industrial complex to end lives, instead toward the assistance of their living, breathing, fellow homo sapiens here on Mother Earth – think what might be accomplished.
And the asteroid is even properly named….”psyche”, or translated appropriately…”sucker”…to the American tax payer!
Tonight’s musical offering:
(For out of this world sensory enjoyment – full screen, headphones on, and volume way up, and stay with it till the end, just a brief 2 minutes, and you just might be blasted to the asteroid before the clowns at NASA arrive….”pysche”…sort of !)
