The Top 5 Biggest Threats To Science Under the Trump Reich

by Guest Author Siserough

The Republican party has widely been considered anti-science for years, due mostly to their collective denial of climate change, large contingent of fundamental Christian Creationists, and hostility to progressive ideology.  On January, 20th, however, the country was taken over by someone far more dangerous than the average Republican party member.  Donald Trump is possibly the most explicitly anti-science president the nation has ever had.  I have already written about Trump’s possible use of Alex Jones’ InfoWars as a news source, but his science denial has already translated into real policy that affects the entire country and world.  So I have ranked (by my own criteria) the top 5 threats to science by the Trump Administration.

What is the NASA Social program?651351main_nasasociallogo
NASA Social is a program to provide opportunities for NASA’s social media followers to learn and share information about NASA’s missions, people, and programs. NASA Social is the next evolution in the agency’s social media efforts. Formerly called NASA Tweetup, NASA Social program includes both special in-person events and social media credentials for individuals who share the news in a significant way. This program has brought thousands of people together for unique social media experiences of exploration and discovery.

Watch as NASA Test-Fires the RS-25 Rocket Engine

NASA test-fired an RS-25 rocket engine today, 08/18/2016, at the Stennis Space Center in Bay St. Louis in Mississippi. The RS-25 is one of four modified space shuttle main engines that will help lift the huge SLS rocket off the ground assisted by two solid rocket boosters.*

The RS-25 engines are fueled by liquid oxygen and liquid hydrogen. Combined, the four RS-25 engines on SLS will generate 2 million pounds of thrust.

Of Course Rockets Work In Space, Flat-Earther!

fosFlat-Earthers have a fixed set of unfounded assertions they cycle through when confronting the rational. One of the most used is the ‘Rockets can’t work in space because there is no air for them to push agains!’ claim.

The following video will help you respond to them in a clear, concise way. There are even TWO experiments you can have them try out themselves, so they know you’re not just spewing illuminati-NASA-reptoid disinformation.

Fake NASA Images? NO! A Simple Test You Can Perform

beachballSeen the two NASA photos of Earth with differing land mass sizes?
SDHoS was asked a question about the apparent differences in land mass size between two photos of the Earth, one from 1978 and the other from 2012.
The apparent differences were used by the flat earth crowd and various other conspiracy theorists to support the claim that the photos were faked. Could this be true???
No. Read more Fake NASA Images? NO! A Simple Test You Can Perform
