The United Nations is supposed to be a council of nations. Only. Not a government. Not a military or enforcement. Nor should it be an entity that does what nations can or should be. Namely, a space exploration capable state. The UN is planning on sending a space plane into low Earth orbit. From the article.
…United Nations is planning to enter the space race itself after signing a deal to launch a space plane into low Earth orbit in 2021.
It is hoping to give those countries too poor to afford their own space programme the chance to send payloads into orbit around the Earth.
The UN has signed a deal with Sierra Nevada to send one of its Dream Chaser space planes (pictured) on a 14-day mission into low Earth orbit in 2021. It is the first time the UN has launched its own space mission and will allow developing nations to take part…
Apparently, they’ve got quite a bit of cash to spare & guess who gives these diplomats & bureaucrats a sizeable amount of cash? America.
The reason for the project is so that nations that don’t have the wherewithal to achieve space exploration, will be included in mankind’s push to the stars. Ridiculous. Globalism as its most moronic & the Globalists attempting to start a space infrastructure for themselves & for their dreamed about world government.
