A Limerick A Day


NASA yesterday scrapped  a planned historic spacewalk by two women astronauts, citing a lack of available spacesuits that would fit them

Women must constantly face
A world where they’re kept in their place
And not just down here
On our earthly sphere
There’s a glass ceiling up there in space

    Correction: NASA couldn’t find suits to fit their astronauts, not their ‘woman astronauts’.

    well they do cost $12million apiece… a bit on the expensive side but then I suppose they coulda asked John Delaney for an oul loan

      Jesus Christ read the article !

      “She thought a large-sized suit would be fine but after a spacewalk last week found that the medium-sized was a better fit and would be the most appropriate suit to wear to venture back outside the International Space Station.

      “Anne trained in ‘M’ and ‘L’ and thought she could use a large but decided after [last] Friday’s spacewalk a medium fits better,” a Nasa spokeswoman, Stephanie Schierholz, announced on Monday.

      “In this case, it’s easier (and faster!) to change space-walkers than reconfigure the spacesuit.”

    Millions to put them into space and they could not find a suit that suited them
    What next the not me movement or a bad hair day
