LOS ANGELES, Calif. — Following the news SpaceX has safely brought NASA astronauts to the International Space Station and back, company CEO Elon Musk has announced he will be sending up student missionaries next.
“Look, if you think being stuck inside all day on coronavirus lockdown is tough, think about the people stuck in the ISS for months at a time,” said Musk, “those guys need a pep talk.”
The entrepreneur said he was sending up two Adventist student missionaries that “know the words to Kumbaya back to front and can tell a mean Uncle Arthur’s bedtime story.”
Although it is unclear which Adventist school the SMs will be coming from, Musk said the Adventist volunteers will receive a care package from their school “whenever SpaceX sends up rockets that aren’t Mars-bound.”
You’ve had your fix of satire. Now head over to Adventist Today for current events updates, analysis and opinion on all things Adventist.
To whom will these missionary students witness? Will they be able to go planet to planet knocking on doors? Will they be able to have haystacks? Will Musk send along enough Little Debbies? This. sounds like a risky adventure. Maybe a Pathfinder honor patch can be devised. These kids can retell missionary stories upon return. Looking forward to results.
