There are 6 comments on Manned Missions. Conquering Space. The Problem with Space Lingo

  1. I can tell this person is not fun at parties.

    Instead of recognizing the monumental events happening in the name of preserving our species, we are going to focus on the “hurtful wording” surrounding the event. Such a shame.

  2. I hope the professionally offended and their ilk never leave this planet. To be honest I hope this planet is the only one we ever colonize.

  3. The comments in the comments section of the original ‘Undark’ article this BU Today article references says it all.

    As a BU alum, this article is embarrassing to advertise to the world that BU charges $70k per year so students can learn to crap on the incredible human achievements of space exploration from this professor.

    My age, skin color, and gender are irrelevant as to whether your perspective has merit or not, or whether my opinion has validity or not. Way to prejudge me based on age, skin color, and gender.

  4. As a minority, I’m really tired of white ladies, or anyone for that matter, telling me what I should be offended by.

    Please don’t speak for me.
