ESA Comet Lander Fails to Anchor, Perched on Cliff, But the REAL Story Turns Out to be Criminal Sexism Among ESA Rocket Scientists

Philae
The world’s first spacecraft to land on a comet has apparently become merely the first craft to ‘bounce’ off of a comet and settle into a precarious perch on a dark comet cliff where it’s batteries may not be able to recharge enough to keep it alive for more than a few days. The European Space Agency’s Rosetta mission has succeeded in depositing it’s lander, called Philae, on the surface of comet 67P/Churyumox-Gerasimenko Wednesday. The world awaits word on whether this spectacular accomplishment will yield precious data about the comet in coming days.  It may be that very little can be saved after the craft failed to anchor to the comet as planned.

But that has not kept the international community from finding something else gossip-worthy about the mission.  It seems that the wild shirt worn by a British member of the ESA operations team during the landing and a press interview has caused feminists everywhere to start shrieking uncontrollably.  I’m not sure why.  See one of the more insanity-inducing tweets here. Make sure you read the smug comments. They’re a scream.

  1. I’m suffering from PTSD after seeing that shirt. You’ll be hearing from my attorney.
