Failing to put a Woman on the Moon

American civilization peaked in about 1970. Back then, we could put a man on the Moon.

Now, our attempts are pitiful:

NASA faces a multitude of challenges as it moves toward a possible Artemis Program lunar landing in 2024. There’s the delay-prone Space Launch System (SLS), an incomplete SpaceX landing system, and the frequent budget shortfalls imposed by Congress. Now, there’s another obstacle in the way: spacesuits. NASA is designing a new generation of suits for Artemis, and a government report now says they won’t be ready until 2025 at the earliest. ...

The new spacesuit is not something NASA dreamed up when the previous administration imposed the 2024 deadline. It has been designing the next-gen suits for 14 years.

The Apollo space program would not have been held up by needing 14+ years to design a space suit.

The NASA goals today are inclusive wokeness, as in this announcement last year:

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has vowed to land the next man and the very first woman on the lunar surface by 2024 through its Artemis program—named after the Greek goddess of the moon, also Apollo's twin sister. ...

This isn't the agency's first foray into women empowerment: back in May, it renamed its newest space telescope after its first female executive and just a few weeks ago it dubbed its headquarters in DC after its first African American female engineer, Mary W. Jackson. We can't wait to see what's next.

I am guessing that the main goal for the new space suit is that it not have any male bias, so it is just as easy for women and trannies to do what they need to do. They are probably spending a couple of years just designing the automatic menstrual pads.
