Protest against the Trump administration continues even in space

After the election of Donald Trump, many protests took place all over the world against the new president of the United States. This one now continues in space too.

Autonomous Space Agency Network (NASA backward) sent a huge meteorological balloon over 90,000 feet above the ground to which they attached a printed tweet expressing their opposition to Trump. They quoted the astronaut Edgar Mitchell, who had said that after having been in space to develop "a global consciousness … an intense dissatisfaction with the state of the world, and a compulsion to do something about it.

"From out there on the Moon, international politics look so petty. You want to grab a politician by the scruff of the neck and drag him a quarter of a million miles out and say, 'Look at that, you son of a bitch.'"

The tweet reads: "Look at that, you son of a bitch."

This event is the first in space. This is a response to the anti-science agenda of the Trump administration.

Here is the video of the balloon:

To note for the scientific purists that the balloon did not exactly reach the space but got close to it.
