US President Donald Trump has left people astonished with his knowledge of space and the universe and has become a laughing stock yet again after he claimed that the moon is a part of Mars.

In a tweet on Friday, he said: “For all of the money we are spending, NASA should NOT be talking about going to the Moon – We did that 50 years ago. They should be focused on the much bigger things we are doing, including Mars (of which the Moon is a part), Defence and Science.”

Trump’s remarks came a day after NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine told USA Today that US astronauts would not be able to make a lunar landing by 2024 unless Trump administration’s $1.6 billion budget increase request is not approved by the US Congress.

As soon as Trump tweeted, people from around the world started trolling him with witty one-liners, jokes and memes.

“Sigh! His dad must have paid his way through astronomy class too!” wrote American long-distance runner Ryan Hill.

“Trump’s knowledge on this matter is one small step for man, one giant leap backwards for mankind,” said Emmy-nominated filmmaker Jeremy Newberger.

“Based on the President’s track record here on Earth, I don’t think NASA needs his input on how to handle space,” tweeted Sam Vinograd, national security analyst at CNN.

Earlier in May, Trump, who is infamous for making controversial statements, war threats and spelling errors on his Twitter handle, confessed that he uses Twitter as a “typewriter”.

Later, Twitter Co-founder, Ev Williams called Trump “master” of the platform, arguing the potential negative effects of the President’s tweets on the country’s political discourse are “trivial compared to the effect of the broader media”.

Twitter is now introducing the ability to schedule tweets from the web. This is currently available as a popular feature in the standalone Tweetdeck app and now the microblogging platform is looking to expand to the wider Twitter user base.

The new feature could be handy to prep tweets for a coordinated product launch or news announcement, for example. If you’re part of the experiment, you’ll be able to schedule a tweet right from the compose window, The Verge reported on Wednesday.

However, it is not clear how many people are part of Twitter’s test.

Given that Twitter has said it’s only “experimenting” with the feature, for now, there’s no way to know when — or if — it’ll be available to all users.

Hopefully, Twitter does roll it out more broadly, though, and perhaps the company will bring tweet scheduling to its mobile apps someday, too, the report added. (IANS)
