Icarus, Revisited

This news blurb caught my eye as I glanced at the Internetsphere …

Flight to Sun

Problem?

What kind of a problem could there possibly be on a flight to the sun?

Maybe the problem is that it’s too freakin’ incredibly hot to fly to the sun! This should have been a problem identified very early in the process.

NASA Engineer: How about we send a flight to the sun?

NASA Supervisor: Nope. It’s too damn hot.

Maybe we do need Trump’s Space Force after all to sort out these space-related issues that should be obvious to NASA scientists and engineers.

Space Force Trooper: <shoots NASA Engineer dead with ray gun>
