Trump's purpose is to find alien life forms out there so he can impose a ban on them travelling to the USA...
Now there's irony for you... doesn't he preside over all the hopeless cases and romantics who couldn't make a go of it in their native land and so sailed dreamily for the New World to displace the natives?

Can't help feeling I've lived longer than was appropriate for the history I was taught at school. :lol:
I'm only a plumber from Cannock...

I have wrought my simple plan
If I give one hour of joy
To the boy who’s half a man,
Or the man who’s half a boy.

Sorry to see that Bruce McCandless has passed ...

I interviewed him at Houston when he returned from his historic 'jetpack flight'. He didn't make a fuss of it, even though he'd put in a huge amount of work to develop the kit.

He'd waited a long, long time to go into space, but when he finally did it, he did it in fine style.
