Apparently, Trump-Derangement Syndrome isn’t just of this world.
The Autonomous Space Agency Network (ASAN), a group started 6-months ago to promote “community-based, DIY space exploration,” is taking social justice to the stars in what they are calling the “first protest in space.”
The target? Who else – President Donald J. Trump.
Supposedly inspired by the words of the late Apollo 14 astronaut Edgar Mitchell, who said, “From out there on the Moon, international politics look so petty. You want to grab a politician by the scruff of the neck and drag him a quarter of a million miles out and say, ‘Look at that, you son of a b—h,” ASAN played petty politics by launching a balloon 90,000 feet into the air holding a video camera and a printed tweet directed at President Trump.
It said, quoting Mitchell, “LOOK AT THAT, YOU SON OF A BITCH.”
Stay classy, ASAN.

In a message to The Huffington Post, an ASAN spokesman described the group as a “decentralized and open group of like-minded autonomous astronauts” whose “purpose is to promote DIY space exploration using both art and science, free from the influence of military or corporate interests.”
The balloon tweet, along with a video of the ascent to what wasn’t technically considered “outer space” but still high enough to see the earth’s curvature, is a show of support for the upcoming March for Science protest scheduled for Earth Day, April 22. Protesters will be highlighting the Trump administration’s supposed “anti-science agenda.”

Not everyone was on board with ASAN’s objectives however:
Seems like a huge waste of time

@wikileaks Great. I’m so glad politics has pervaded every single aspect of life. With cursing nonetheless. Embarrassing.

@wikileaks Great the last frontier is just another stompie foot protest arena
