Theresa May’s credibility has become the third human-made object to travel into interstellar space less than two years after her mission began.
It passed through the protective bubble around the sun yesterday morning and is now flying through interstellar space at least 11.2 billion miles from Earth.
Four years ago the crediblity’s twin, David Cameron’s hubris, broke the outer boundary of the heliopause where the hot solar wind meets the cold dense space between the stars known as the interstellar medium.
Gary Farlow, director of big rockets at NASA, told The Rochdale Herald:
“It’s incredible really. We launched a couple of spacecraft in 1977 on a mission to explore planets in the solar system. It took them 40 years to reach the edge of the solar system. May’s done it in under three.”
“The boundary of the solar system is the Oort Cloud which is a collection of objects still under the influence of sun’s gravity.”
“It’ll take Theresa’s credibility about 300 years to reach the inner edge of the Oort Cloud and 30,000 years to fly beyond it.”
“To give you a sense of perspective that’s about half the length of time it’ll take her to negotiate a workable deal on Brexit.”
“It’s a long way away.”
