Coming soon: Nigerians in space?

Nigeria's space agency is no joke. It has launched satellites and aims to put Africans into space.

Nigeria really does have a space agency. The west African nation’s National Space Research and Development Agency is already celebrating its 10th anniversary. And as America and Europe’s space agencies set their sights on joint exploration of Mars, Nigeria has big plans of its own: It wants to send a Nigerian up into space in 2015, making Nigeria home to the first black African astronaut...

Nigeria has launched satellites and has plans to put an African astronaut into space. Earth is seen behind the International Space Station from Space Shuttle Discovery as the two spacecraft begin their relative separation in this photo taken Sept. 8, 2009.

South Africa, Algeria and Egypt are all marshaling their own satellite facilities, so there’s no question Africa’s scientists are reaching for the stars.

In the USA, ignorance has become a virtue.
Mockery has become a substitute for reasoning.
That's why the USA depends on students from foreign countries to make up for its deficiencies in the sciences.

Otherwise it would rapidly fall behind since the brainpower to stay ahead is missing. So ironically, it's from the very countries that Americans mindlessly laugh at that these scientists are coming from to give the USA a helping hand.

But as the saying goes-ignorance is bliss.
It's also very useful for those in power to keep the governed ignorant in order to fool them into fighting wars whenever wars are deemed finacially profitable.

Just a few apple-pie slogans and they are guaranteed an army of mindless drooling, patriotic fanatics willing to go and die wherever they are told. So keeping citizens brain numb does have it's advantages.

LOL, that is a woman.

The first person of black African descent in space was ''Arnaldo Tamayo Méndez''(1980) then came the first ''African American'' in space ''Guion Bluford''(1983).

Stay cute.
