Mexicans In Space

By the end of this year, the Mexican Senate is expected to approve the creation of Mexico's very first space agency: AEXA, or Agencia Espacial meXicanA. Maybe someone should first teach them how to make a proper acronym.

The goal of creating such an agency is to be able to participate in further technological and scientific study. Many of the discoveries involved during space-science research is applicable to all kinds of advancements here on earth - such as areas of telecommunications, meteorology, and robotics.

Beginning with a budget of $2 million USD, this new Mexican Space Agency hopes to begin operations early next year.

If they are able to one day create a space station, do you think they will cram 185 astronauts in it?

I'm all for countries wanting to get in on the technologies produced from space exploration and science, but let's be reasonable. $2 million bucks? The Mexican Navy consists of a small dingy with two guys sleeping in it with fishing rods tucked in their arm pits. They could use a new boat, don't you think? Aren't there better ways Mexico could spend their money? Like, I dunno, feeding their people?

For $2 million, the closest thing they'll get to space exploration is by building a giant catapult to launch people over the border.


I wonder how tacos taste in zero-gravity...

Yeah that's such a paltry amount for space exploration!

Oh man, that's so fucked up! As a person of hispanic descent I am deeply offended.

OK, not really. Seriously, $2 million is a joke. I know things are cheaper in Mexico but you can't pick up propulsion-rockets on the corner. Maybe that money would be better sent sending their top scientists to NASA (where they would be probably be given jobs as janitors).

You're right...2 mill won't buy much rocket fuel, but I bet it could buy a lot of burritos.

Etchen said...

It's official...i can no longer read your blog while around others as I tend to burst into uncontrollable laughter. A catapult! Ahahhahaha

Hungry Mother said...

I wonder if their first spaceship will have a cracked windshield.

Nessa said...

They could get alot of rubber bands for $2M and twist them and twist then and send a plastic rocket to space. Or maybe they will be using the 2 mill for acronym research.

Two million dollars isn't a lot to spend to travel to the Milky Way.
Hmm, I want a taco and then a chocolate bar.

Sherri said...

I find this scary and funny at the same time....

Do you think they'll be the first to create a low rider space shuttle?

ajooja said...

Maybe my Mexican friend can go into space instead of worrying about his work visa. :)

Jay said...

A love a thinly-veiled racist rant.

Vani said...

LMAO, oh man i needed this laugh! what's next?

Keshi said...

LOL @last pic!

I'm just annoyed because with all of Mexico's natural resources, it should be better off than it is.
Mexico should be a place where Mexicans WANT to live and work and thrive.
I agree with your analysis. 2 million bucks won't do much.

Chris said...

I think if you cut a few corners, you could probably put a Mexican in space. Bringing them back down would be another question unless they hitched a ride back on an American shuttle.

Perplexio said...

To perpetuate the negative stereotypes started in your post I have to ask:

Will the Mexican space station have a beat up old car floating on cinder blocks outside it?

The 2 million budget might be more apt to cover that than the rocket fuel to get it into space.

Mimi said...

I think they should first focus on indoor plumbing not being luxury.

:P fuzzbox said...

Their first flight wasn't a success. All the stucco fell off the chickenwire on liftoff. It wasn't pretty.

jenn said...

I had a comment (kinda not really) until I read Fuzz's. And the catapult had me howling. So I really have nothing to contribute to these comments. Wasted space. And it didn't cost $2 million US.

Good post Why don't they use the money to fight the corruption that fosters the extreme poverty of Mexico? The economy needs a leg to stand on before they can even think of anything beyond rubber band operated aircraft.

stephanie said...

Hmmm...well....very interesting. I wonder if this is part of the North American Union conspiracy I keep hearing about.

Fucking idiot bloggerist let me explain you something:

First, I should teach you that there is not such a thing as a 'proper acronym' because an acronym doesn't always imply an unique principle. (You need to remember that 'TV' stands for TeleVision...) If you just knew a little about grammar you would easily noticed that certain gramatical changes occur even in the most secular principles between two different languages. Also Spanish and english have their own grammar and lexicon.

Second, let me tell all of you cocksuckers are badly wrong and uninformed. About the supposed 'informative'text, I'd like to tell phoenix something: Hey faggot, your article is highly mediocre! It is also as badly mediocre as the fucking arrogance of you all.

Third, it seems the bloggerist knows nothing about being clear and assertive when writing to an audience. Relatively, the commentators know nothing about being cautious before making a stupid opinion. Don't be such assholes again and please try not to be fooled.

Fourth, unclearness of information means ambiguity of thinking. WIKIPEDIA in Spanish: "El 14 de febrero de 2007 se aprobó la iniciativa de la creación de la Agencia Espacial Mexicana en la Cámara de Senadores de ese mismo país dandole un presupuesto inicial de 21 millones de dólares." It says: "On February 14, 2007 an iniciative aiming to create an spacial agency was aprobed by the senate of Mexico, declaring that its INITIAL budget will be 21 MILLION DOLLARS. (For a rookie agency that amount is not bad to begin with...)

Finally, authentic nutritious mexican tacos keep their taste even in zero gravity, the same as your highly harmful pepsi!
[Not to mention hamburgers and fries which allow fat U.S to hold the first place in the world as junkie-eaters.]

Many countries, including Mexico are not dangerous. What happens is that many U.S. people are not accustumed to see how difficul life could be. It is time for uncousious americans to be unafraid of the world. Bombing raids doesn't mean power and to win a war doesn't signify victory.
Fuck you all!

The Phoenix said...

First of all, if you're French, you are a big pussy. Coward. Chicken. Have you ever seen "Jerry Springer?" We have women on that show that could easily invade France with nothing more than a shoe.

Secondly, speaking of grammar, isn't "bloggerist" redundant? I mean, this is a blog. And a person that blogs is a blogger. That's like saying a guy is a "truck driverist."

Stupid moronic Eurotrash. That's what you are.

Caribbean Islander said...

Well, I'm Jamaican born and now a Canadian citizen, and I personally agree with what the Frenchman brother said. Of course I'll not offend you the same way he did nor I would offend Mexican brotherhood, but why don't you stop to think about the essence of his opinion for a moment?
I belive that one thing Frenchman brother tried to say was the fact that U.S. brotherhood tend to see themselves as lords and masters of the world... Let me tell you there is nothing as bad as blind pride is. World's brotherhood exist outside closed minds as we all know.

Why to offend and to fool at Mexican brotherhood just because they are trying to improve their technological conditions?

America is not only one country, it is formed by more than 25 countries, several islands and dozens of languages. What makes U.S. brotherhood to be so intransigent so often?

What did you expect from a developing country?... A budget superior than yankee?... Equal?...
5 million below?...

"To be modest is the kind of pride least likely to offend" -J.Renard

Lo que hacen ustedes los gringos con su tecnologia no sirve de nada, con tantos jovenes drogandose en sus escuelas gringas y matandose con pistolas, son unos engreidos, y además no saben ni cuidar sus campos agricolas, sin nosotros se mueren de hambre.

jaime said...

Look it here you fucking rasist idiots those 2 million dollars are just to approve the space agency they arent making everything with that amount of money its obvious that they are going to spend more money for the other things.
Seriosly americans stop humiliating mexicans.

jaime said...

Seriosly you americans will be dying of hunger if the mexicans wouldnt been working in the agriculture fields or in other places they work on. You americans need mexicans to maintain your dam country.
