Moon Flight Impossible Today - Mondflug heute unmöglich #punchline #satire #pointe*

In 1961, John F Kennedy said, "We choose to go to the Moon in this decade..." That happened after 8 years. That was visionary. Today a controller would prevent it because of the costs. Attorneys would fight patent litigation, computer experts would defend hacker attacks, sustainability officers would write concepts on waste disposal, and equality policy officers would demand political correctness.
