Becoming an astronaut not only requires physical prowess but the brain of a genius too. So Jessica Meir, NASA astronaut and comparative physiologist, is kind of a bad ass. And today, she tweeted a video of herself inside a space equivalent zone, which is an atmosphere so inhospitable that water boils spontaneously.
Thankfully, this random guy on Twitter who just so happens to be a "SpaceCampUSA alum," was on hand to help her through it.My first venture >63,000', the space equivalent zone, where water spontaneously boils! Luckily I'm suited! pic.twitter.com/0zB5Ku5Tdy— Jessica Meir (@Astro_Jessica) September 9, 2016
Twitter was just as thankful that this guy was on had to mansplain everything.
Man mansplains space to astronaut: pic.twitter.com/haFo6i7PnN— Dr Paul Coxon (@paulcoxon) September 9, 2016
@CatherineHaines @paulcoxon What's the line again about women needing to be twice as qualified to get half the credit?— Kayleigh Anne (@Ceilidhann) September 9, 2016
While others complained about mansplaining.
@paulcoxon @FelicityMorse can we start using the term twatsplains instead? I don’t mean to be precious but not all men are this twattish.— Bryn Davies (@bryndavies) September 9, 2016
Unfortunately for the world of science, the mansplainer has since deleted his Twitter account, but not before one last tweet: "Again, I forget how everyone gets offended by everything."
Thankfully, this guy mansplained it for him.
@CaseyOQuin Wouldn't say they're offended. Just a case of laughing at a bumptious chump. Simple group dynamics.— Manticlops (@manticlops) September 9, 2016
