The following article, NASA Set to Remove ‘Offensive’ Names From Planets & Galaxies, Such As ‘Eskimo Nebula’, was first published on Flag And Cross.
If everything is “offensive,” then nothing is offensive. It’s a double negative. It should cancel itself out. One would think, at least. The thing is, liberals have the final say on pretty much everything.
Whether we like it or not, that’s just the way it is.
Check this out, via New York Post:
Political correctness has now expanded to space, where NASA says planets, galaxies and other heavenly bodies will no longer be referred to by “offensive” nicknames.
In a press release Thursday, the space agency said that all planets and heavenly bodies will be referred only to by their scientific names, the Houston Chronicle reported.
Under the new rules, the “Eskimo Nebula,” discovered in 1787 by William Hershel, will only be referred to as NGC 2392.
The so-called “Siamese Twins Galaxy” will likewise be known only as NGC 4567 and NGC 4568.
