a DinΓ© man wrote a poem about the space race 50 years ago

the more things change, the more they stay the same

@hammerhead at least public space travel has some sort of common good like for example better weather forecasting or GPS
this private space travel crap provides no value to society whatsoever and in fact sets the precedent that space is no longer a place for science, it's a rich boy's playground

@hammerhead there's also a song/poem whitey on the moon by gil scott-heron https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=goh2x_G0ct4 (also, could ya tell us the name of the book, please?)

@Hyolobrika @hammerhead @fitheach it's actually a Siddonic rhyme scheme. It's a bit unintuitive, but surely you've encountered it before?
