With Message for Trump, Citizen Group Launches First Space Protest

Lauren McCauley, staff writer

President Donald Trump and his policies have sparked worldwide marches, seemingly round-the-clock demonstrations, and a fierce popular resistance movement, and now, it seems, the "first protest in space."

The citizen-led space exploration group, the Autonomous Space Agency Network (ASAN), this week launched a weather balloon carrying an image of tweet directed at Trump. It says, in all capital letters: "LOOK AT THAT, YOU SON OF A BITCH."

The upper stratosphere - the upper limit which a balloon can float, is not "space". The curvature of the horizon in the picture is exaggerated by the use of a wide-angle lens.

I thought that this was going to be about some kind of anti-Trump protest on the ISS... With the possible exception of the Russians who mostly keep to themselves in the Russian module. I'm sure that Trump is not popular among the scientist-astronauts on the station.
