All this critical physics theory makes me want to write a fat studies paper about how there will be no fat people in space because of fatphobic narratives about the costs of extra weight and spacesuit design plus healthist narratives that unjustly medicalize obesity.
We could include a critical media analysis of the Muppets, "Pigs in Space," as additional evidence of fatphobic assumptions that underlie popular conceptions of space travel and talk about how the late fat x-wing pilot in Star Wars wasn't the hero.
