SPACE RACE 2.0!
Don’t listen to these bourgeois cynics who tell us that the “habitable zone” is kinda misleading because it’s not just Earth that’s within the habitable zone of the sun, but Venus as well. Fuck that shit. The Americans are already looking for alien life there.

It’s time to repeat the glories of Sputnik! It’s time to take socialism to the stars and claim this quite probably barren and uninhabitable world 6000 trillion miles away for the workers of the galaxy!
Obviously the Chinese National Space Agency will take the lead (check out their logo) this time, but let us not forget the heroes of the Soviet space triumphs.

I mean him or Comrade General Kim Jong-Un, obviously.
