Democrat Sheila Jackson Lee Thinks The Moon is Made of Gases

Ignorance is bliss?

From “homicide is the leading cause of murder” to asking if the Pathfinder mission to Mars got a picture of the flag planted in 1969 by Neil Armstrong (THAT was the moon by the way), Rep Sheila Jackson Lee has once again confirmed her ignorance. This time, she stated that the moon is made of gases. Gases. There’s some gas somewhere alright, but it’s not on the moon.

Sheila Jackson Lee was speaking to Booker T. Washington High School on the day of the Eclipse. She told them some incorrect information:

“You’ve heard the word ‘full moon.’ Sometimes you need to take the opportunity just to come out and see a full moon is that complete rounded circle, which is made up mostly of gases… And that’s why the question is why or how could we as humans live on the moon? Are the gases such that we could do that?”

“The sun is a mighty powerful heat, but it’s almost impossible to go near the sun. The moon is more manageable,” the Texas legislator continued. “And you will see in a moment — not a moment, you will see in a couple of years, that NASA is going back to the moon.” Sheila Jackson Lee

Um, the moon is not a planet, but I digress. The ‘moon is a big round circle’ sounds more like Kamala Harris’ babbling. Or Hank Johnson claiming that too many people on Guam would capsize the island. According to media, Lee attended Yale University…but may have gotten her degree out of a box of cornflakes.

The scary part is that she was once the ranking member of the House Space and Aeronautics Subcommittee. Yet she knows little about the celestial event on April 8.

Will this presidential election be the most important in American history?

According to NASA, the sun is 27 million degrees Fahrenheit, and hot enough to sustain nuclear fusion. The moon, however, is not made of “gases,” but rather iron and some nickel at its core. Its mantle and crust are made up of numerous minerals, including olivine and pyroxene, and oxygen, silicon, magnesium, iron, calcium and aluminum atoms. Daily Caller
