NASA Still Boldly Going

Funny story written by Backandtotheleft

Recently discovered star clusters “may contain alien life” or “they might not” according to NASA scientists. The cluster has appeared because NASA decided to look in the one place they haven’t yet in space: Behind the moon.

Professor John Daiddion (who was wearing a lab coat at the time of the interview meaning each answer was smothered with extra science) said:

It’s amazing! We never thought to look behind the moon but we did and what we’ve found could well change everything we know about space. Or it might not. It’s all very exciting and science.

NASA has been credited with many discoveries in the past such as “the sun”, “Jupiter” and “David Bowie” but this one could trump them all.

Professor Daiddion said:

I know people think we just spend all day staring up at space using a telescope but there’s so much more to it than that. Sometimes we’re required to use spreadsheets and stuff on Microsoft Word.

NASA, which was founded in a garage outside Woking in the 40s, have often been at the forefront of space exploration and hope to be at the forefront of any alien wars we may be about to get involved in.

Prominent Brexiteer and UKs primary trade negotiator, Liam Fox, said:

These are the sort of opportunities that would have been denied to us if we’d have prolonged our relationship with the EU. I will immediately try and make contact with any possible alien species out there.

Of course we are willing to crowd fund any outer space trips Liam needs to make to get these deals over the line.
