The first manned Orion mission was planned for 2021, but could now take place in 2019

NASA may get back into manned spaceflight sooner than thought. At the direction of NASA Acting Administrator Robert Lightfoot, a study is being conducted into feasibility of placing a crew of two on the first integrated flight of the Space Launch System (SLS) rocket and the Orion spacecraft, Exploration Mission-1 (EM-1), in 2019.

Meet The 16-Year-Old Girl Who Singlehandedly Took Down Milo Yiannopoulos

Few people have fallen from grace quicker than Milo Yiannopoulos, the controversial conservative firebrand who lost a book deal, got himself disinvited from CPAC, and resigned from Breitbart.

What a whirlwind!

And while it was due to that shameful pedophilia video and other associated antics, it all comes back to a 16-year-old high school student in Canada who, as Vox describes, “decided Yiannopoulos was embraced much too closely by mainstream conservatives.”

The news website has a fascinating piece up today about the teenager behind the Yiannopoulos video and eventual takedown, and it all centers on the teen recognizing that Milo’s controversial “free speech” shtick was little more than awfulness:

“I see Milo as this embodiment of the awfulness you see over the past few years with the general tilt of millennial conservatism. It’s diverged from this traditional conservatism so much. You’ve seen it essentially become full of awfulness and all about attacking the left and not about actual principles. It has nothing to do with conservative ideology so much as it has with opposing the leftists, SJWs, and so on and so forth.”

Vox didn’t name the teenager — citing her own safety — and referred to her only as “Julia” in the post, but it’s a fascinating look at how one young person said “enough is enough” and took down a VERY controversial figure!!!

And with a very good memory — it was Julia alone — and partnering with a conservative blog to post the damning video — she felt a liberal blog would have less credibility at CPAC — the teenager went out and made it all happen, calling out pedophilia and child molestation!

Even more attractive, Julia understands how dangerous that Milo brand of political speech can potentially be, and how that’s linked to the current occupant of the White House, too:

“America is a global power, and it affects the entire world. Whatever Trump says now in terms of foreign policy does change the course of world history and does alter not just America’s position in the world but it will also affect Western civilization’s position in the world stage. There’s not a politician in American politics today that would be worse than Donald Trump.”

Well spoken!!!

And just for good measure, she dropped one more knowledge bomb to finish things up:

“You shouldn’t have to feel intimidated to stand up for what you believe in. Hopefully they’ll realize that you can’t keep being this reactionary movement — if you can even call it that. You can’t just keep looking for enemies to attack and pointing the finger. Eventually, you have to stand up for something.”

We LOVE this girl!!!

It’s an interesting piece in full, too — read it HERE.

Hear Remy Ma Fire Back at Nicki Minaj With Vicious Diss Track ‘Shether’

The war of words between Nicki Minaj and Remy Ma escalated Saturday when the latter dropped “Shether,” a vicious, seven-minute diss track using Nas’ classic “Ether” beat and aimed at The Pinkprint rapper.

“Shether,” with its artwork of a dismembered Barbie doll resembling Minaj, arrives a day after Minaj used her verse on Gucci Mane’s “Make Love” to attack an unnamed rapper many assumed was Remy Ma.

“Talking ’bout bringing knives to a fight with guns / When the only shots you ever took was in your buns,” Remy Ma says on “Shether,” a response to Minaj’s line about “trying to win a gunfight with a bunch of knives.”

Over the course of the diss track, Remy Ma explicitly touches on Minaj’s breakup with Meek Mill, suggests Minaj hooked up with Trey Songz (who denied Remy Ma’s accusations following a brief Twitter spat with Minaj), Lil Wayne, Gucci Mane and many more, implies that the rapper employs a ghostwriter and even calls out Minaj’s recent family issues; Minaj’s brother Jelani Maraj will face trial on charges of raping a 12-year-old girl. If convicted, Maraj faced life imprisonment.

In response to Minaj’s “Make Love” lyric, “You see, silly rabbit / To be the queen of rap / You gotta sell / You gotta get plaques,” Remy Ma fired back, “Stop talking numbers / You signed a 360 deal through Young Money, through Cash Money, through Republic / Which means your money goes through five niggas before you touch it / Any videos, endorsements come out of your budget / Endorsements, tour and merchandise, they finger-fuck it / You make like 35 cents off of each ducket.”

“Stop comparing yourself to Jay [Z], you’re not like him / You a motherfucking worker, not a boss like Rem,” Remy Ma added.

Until the next diss track arrives, Minaj responded Saturday with a pair of Instagram posts, the first poking fun at Remy Ma and Fat Joe’s Plato O Plomo sales and the second that clip of Beyonce calling Minaj the “rap queen” to the tune of Prince’s “Darling Nikki.”
