Rogue NASA Profile picture
The unofficial "Resistance" team of NASA. Not an official NASA account. Not managed by gov't employees. Come for the facts, stay for the snark.

We all know how awful and horrific #September11 was. But, as Mr. Rogers said, "Look for the helpers."

Instead of only remembering the terror, let's also remember the helpers.

Here are a few stories.

#remember911
The Masai tribespeople of Kenya, who donated 14 cows.

''The cow is almost the center of life for us,'' said Mr. Naiyomah. ''It's sacred. It's more than property."

The dogs of 9/11…including a guide dog who refused to leave his best friend until they were safe.

Hey Rogues! We realize that today was CRAZY - don't panic. Here's why.

THREAD

First of all, remember that Trump thrives on chaos. He wants you to feel confused, tired, and hopeless.

Don't let him manipulate you.

Focus on what YOU can do, not what you CANNOT do.
2) First of all - Jeff Sessions "resigned" (was fired).

This is huge.

There are protests tomorrow at 5 pm, probably one near you. This is something that you can focus on that's coming up soon.

GO HERE to find one near you:

3) The Jim Acosta news is big too but...you cannot do anything about that so don't let it stress you out. Yes, it should worry you, but given everything else going on, don't let it make you crazy if you don't have to.

CNN will handle it - you don't need to.

This is HORRIBLE advice.

Storm surge is not factored into hurricane categories.

The size of a storm factors into the size of the surge. Florence was a HUGE storm, meaning that even though she's "only" a Cat 2, she could have a bigger surge than other stronger storms.
But don't take our word for it, listen to the National Hurricane Center.

Also, Hurricane Camille came ashore as a Category 5.

Hurricane Katrina came ashore as a Category 3.

Katrina's storm surge was worse.

Trump administration clamps down on media access to federal scientists - the change means scientists in many cases will no longer be able to talk directly to the media without first obtaining approval, including for breaking news such as earthquakes.

We think NASA's been spared bc the National Aeronautics and Space Act of 1958 says that one of the functions of NASA is to

"provide for the widest practicable and appropriate dissemination of information concerning its activities and the results thereof"

history.nasa.gov/spaceact.html
So to not communicate everything we do and all of our science would be going against the Space Act.

But we don't put anything past this Administration. They'll keep trying until they find a way.

Until then:

Today Mike Pence said that it's time to wrap up the Mueller probe on Russia.

Mueller was appointed on May 17, 2017, so the investigation hasn't even been ongoing for a full year.

Let's put that in context.
2/

There were 2 Congressional Committees that investigated 9/11.

There were 8 Congressional Committees that investigated Benghazi. EIGHT. One of them, the House Intelligence Committee, lasted for TWO years.

3/

Just 9 months into Mueller's investigation there were over 100 criminal counts issued against 19 people.

Of those 19 people, 5 of them have plead guilty.

Of those 5, 3 were Trump associates.
