NASA’s New Deputy Administrator!
The President’s just announced his nomination for NASA’s new Deputy Administrator! I’m super pumped.
What’s cool about this nomination?
- Newman’s a woman and the STEM fields desperately need to start hiring more of them.
- She isn’t from the military. NASA will be led with science and humanitarian mindsets. Our exploration of space will be driven by curiosity not defense.
- She is *very* smart. She’s almost finished developing a new spacesuit that’s pressurized mechanically. This would enable us to float through space without the need to be in a gas-filled balloon. Her nomination makes me think that NASA may well end up integrating her design after all.
Odo is such an important Star Trek character because more than any other character I’ve seen, he illustrates what it’s like to grow up different from everyone else and how that difference shapes you. This scene fucking guts me when I watch it. I order to fit in, he was forced to participate in the othering of himself. His uniqueness is fine as long as it only comes out in ways that are palatable for society. The rest of the time, he was to look and act like everyone else, regardless of how unnatural it feels for him. And it just leaves him feeling bitter and alone.
I remember how much her realization that she was “never going to be good enough for him” resonated with me when I first watched this movie. She decided to push herself, not to be with him, but to prove him the fuck wrong.
Strong female role models who can still wear pink and love fashion. Yes yes yes.
I FUCKING LOVE THIS MOVIE OH MY GODDDDDDDDDD
CAN WE JUST STOP FOR A SEC THO?
HE’S INSULTING HER FOR BEING DUMB
SHE GOT INTO THAT SCHOOL ON HER OWN.

AND he was WAITLISTED.
I LOVE THIS MOVIE SO MUCH
