Space farce, sorry, force?

Whereas I’m not allowed by my job to comment on the 2 B’s (Boris, Brexit) at this time, due to a need for UK political neutrality, I dont have quite the same limitations when it comes to US politics, thankfully. Even more so if I only describe someone as a bewigged, orange, Russian narcissist, I’m sure you know who I mean, lol!

Anyway, no, I’m going to generally pass on his Immigration policies, though its amazing how when it suits him, the whole chain migration rule conveniently gets ignored, as per an event this week.

But no, his latest crazy idea takes the honor tonight, a space force. Personally I’d like to see him, and a few friends go up in an open top spacecraft, without helmet, and space suit, and solve a few problems for the rest of us. But sadly…

The immediate snag I see with this idea, is where do this force live, when not on missions? If its on Earth, then every time they need to take off, to achieve space orbit is going to take a lot more force, and fuel, than a jet plane taking off. There is also the snag of the heat involved in atmospheric re-entry, those craft are either going to need heat protection cladding replaced every few flights, or something of the kind. Equally, even the ‘UFO’s’ dont have much window space on their craft, simply because of the heat protection issue. So, either these craft have very limited visibility, or they have to find some kind of visible panel that can cope with the heat of re-entry!

Alternatively, a non Earth base, yes, what? After all, the International Space Station is a multi nation base, so are hardly likely to welcome US Military there, at a base where Russians, and other nations are on board, supposedly the enemies! Other than that, not much available at present, lol! Also then, long term, there are always the space radiation issues, so…

Next question I dont know, would weapons work in space? As far as I know, phaser weapons only exist on TV, and the movies! To be fair to said bewigged idiot, I’m sure that some distance into the future, these issues will be sorted out, and assuming the threat isnt just from other countries on this planet (which is what he’s talking up), but from heaven forbid, aliens from another world, then I suppose the much talked about Moon Base could work for this. But yes, thats not going to happen in the time span he’s talking about, lets face it!

So…

OK, one last slightly related thing. I gather one of the new planes being designed will be vertical take off, just like a rocket, though seemingly only for a short time, before flying in a more standard style. I’ve seen video of it, and no thanks, unless I’m provided with full pressurized space suit, lol! Even then…?

OK, the video. I decided not to inflict Star Trekkin’ on you, be grateful for that! I have used this song before, but not this performance. So, like the Space Force at present, he doesnt exist! 😛

A home suitable for here, or outer space.

Back in the early 1970’s, someone in Finland decided that the current design we were using to live in, had got a bit dull, and needed shaking up. So, he came up with this, and called it the Futuro home

my dream home

In truth, this is either a very old photo, a very well restored one, or someone has created a modern reconstruction of one. Why? Because they werent made of the best possible material, and of the few still surviving now, most arent in a good condition, let alone almost mint condition, like this one!

Yes, I’d love to live in one, at least for a short time, just because they look amazing, and fine, look just like a UFO. Not coincidence in the design, given the name, I’m sure? I suspect that to do so, I’d either need to find a very reconditioned one (maybe like this one is?), or get someone to customize me one from scratch! I know, I havent got any money, so I either need to get someone to buy me one, or even better, get a friendly alien to deliver a proper flying saucer for me to live in!

Sadly, despite looking like they should, as far as I know, they dont fly at all, let alone at fantastic speeds as a UFO would surely do. Yes, I wouldnt mind having an Earthbound one as home, but one that could fly off into outer space might just be better? 😉

Fine, I wouldnt actually need to wear a silver body suit to live there, but it might be a whole lot more fun to do so! Yes, you could just imagine people’s reactions, if you lowered the steps, and walked out of there, in a silver suit! 😀

So please, if someone has one suitable, even as an overnight stay, I’d love to do it. And yes, I would wear silver in there, believe me!

Right, the video. You have a choice of 2 tonight. The original version of the song

Or one that appeals to me far more, as a jazzed up version of said song.
