社評 0829  美國太空總署重返月球計劃

 

美國太空總署重返太空探索計劃重新啟動, 將會繞行地球四十二天, 為了安全起見, 這次之試飛不會載乘太空人。

登月火箭阿提梅施一號預定進入太空後將和火箭分離,隨後將繞行月球展開另一次之登月計劃 ,這次代替太空人的是兩個身穿太空衣之玩偶。

NASA 將在太空艙發射後開始做官方直播, 據稱十枚小立方衛星將被稀放,進行深太空的相關研究。

事隔五十年後 ,美國再次進行這項行動, 顯示著對太空探索及爭取領導地位之企圖心。

美國太空中心主任尼爾森對於中國大陸登上月球和建立太空站表示十分關切 ,這也是中美在外太空展開競賽之開始。

我們希望這項探月計劃之成功, 在不久之將來盡快再把太空人送到月球。

天下父母心

一群在德州依瓦利小學被害的小朋友的父母及親友 週六上午聚集在德州奧斯丁德州議會大廈及州長艾伯特官邸前面,大聲疾呼要為她們失去的心肝寶貝兒女們討回公道。

在群眾大會上 ,他們主要之訢求之一是希望德州立法把購槍年紀提升到二十一歲 ,但是州長並未對此要求有正面回應, 他希望加強在學校安全防衛及心理健康, 一位示威者高喊”艾伯特州長, 你還希望多少鮮血染到你的手上?”

誠然, 我們十分同情這些失去親人之父母, 他們還沒有開始自己的人生 ,就被一名未成年之兇手殺害, 而且這些悲劇還不斷上演。

我們呼籲社會大眾必須喚起更多之同情心及社會之力量, 把我們這個己經生病的社會進行診斷, 共同來拯救並還給無辜死者一個公道之理由。

Artemis I Is On An Historic Lunar Journey

NASA’s Artemis I mission, if the weather permits, with the space launch system rocket and Orion spacecraft, will lift off from Kennedy Space Center in Florida on Monday.

But the uncrewed mission is part of an inspiring program as well as a very critical mission.

NASA administrator Bill Nelson said, “We’re going back to the moon in preparation to go to Mars. That is the difference. Fifty years ago we went to the moon for a day, a few hours, three days max. Now we’re going back to the moon to stay, to live and to learn to build.”

Instead of the Soviet Union, the U.S. now is in a space race with China. Nelson said, “We must be very concerned that China is landing on the moon and now cooperating with Russia and has plans to build a new space station there.”

If the 42-day uncrewed mission around the moon and back is a success, it will keep NASA on track to meet its goal to return again to the moon in 2025. China is also planning to land its astronauts on the moon in 2030.

Uvalde Families In Austin, Texas

A group of Uvalde family members was in front of Governor Abbott in his office at the Texas state capitol in Austin demanding him to call a special session of the Texas Legislature to raise the age to purchase some weapons from 18 to 21.

One of the leaders of the group asked the governor, “How much more blood will stain your hands?” Several families attended the meeting from both Uvalde and Santa Fe where a 17-year-old murdered 10 classmates in 2018.

Abbott was not in Austin and has so far rejected calls for a special session. Instead, he is focused on school safety and mental health initiatives.

It is very sad that all of these families have to suffer with all of these tragedies. We all hope the leaders of government along with community leaders can come to agreement on a workable solution.
