 I'm pleased the US funds much scientific research.  Will this continue under a Conservative government?


Heck yes    theres' money in them thar stars!

 

Actually exciting news,  start building the ships!!!

 

 


The elites are hoarding more and more of the wealth so that they can escape into space once they get done raping the planet and Climate Change starts accelerating too fast !!  Wonder if they'll let Trump go with them ?    Naw !!!!!
