Over the past days speculations were abound regarding damage to one of the rocket’s engines, which might prompt the bureaucracy to cancel the mission. As it turns out, those speculations were true, and the mission was postponed indefinitely due to technical failure.
Other failures overseen by Harris include, but are not limited to: the border crisis, which she has failed to address; her failure to draw an audience to the Women’s Leadership Forum; her failure to impress failing President Joe Biden; and garnering nearly universal disapproval.
The Artemis mission, according to Harris, was put together in order to land both a black man and a black woman on the moon. She spoke of the mission and its aims in an interview earlier this week.
“I’m so proud of what is happening in terms of our space program and the leadership that the United States is providing to the rest of the world,” Harris noted.
“The Artemis program is the beginning of the next era of what we have a history and a tradition of doing: of providing vision and inspiration in a way which will benefit all mankind… and all womankind,” the VP concluded.
At the Artemis launching event, Harris was to deliver a televised oration regarding the leadership of the United States in space exploration–presumably to be a contrived “big moment” for the aspring Commander-in-Chief.
Her remarks were reminiscent of her previous philosophical reflections on the significance of the passage of time from earlier this summer:
