With as much snarky talk as the left has made in regard to President Trump’s Space Force, this news couldn’t come at a more poignant and ominous time.
When the Commander in Chief announced that a sixth branch of the military would be created, dubbed the Space Force for the time being, democrats and their progressive pals simply lost their minds. They saw this as some sort of whimsical fantasy of a man unfit for office, not as a practical and likely necessary addition to our national security force.
Of course, the Space Force wouldn’t just be protecting us from Vladimir Putin’s supposed hypersonic missiles, rather, it would likely given the task of protecting us from giant, hurtling space rocks as well. And, given that we’re way overdue for a significant impact according to some scientists, this could be the biggest piece of the Space Force puzzle.
Now, an ominous reminder of the dangers of deep space has rocked the crew onboard the International Space Station.
Pressure sensors detected a depressurization in the International Space Station (ISS) on Wednesday night.The crew had to search for a leak, which was eventually traced to the Russian space capsule docked with the station.The leak was found in the Soyuz craft, which is docked with the ISS, reported Russian space chief Dmitry Rogozin. The official said air was being sucked out through a 1.5mm fracture, which may have been caused by a micrometeorite impact.
“The crew safety is not in danger,” he said. “The spaceship will be kept, a repair kit will be used.”
Rogozin said the malfunction will require a sealant to be applied from the inside of the ship, so no emergency spacewalk will be required.
Luckily, no one was injured in the incident, but a larger space rock may have ended this story in a much different way.
In other news, an eerie, skull shaped asteroid is set to pass near to our plant in the coming days as well, NASA has warned.
