The Unimpressed Astronaut Meme

If this doesn't say it all about the ends to which we put technological means, I don't know what does.

The image is part of a series on Quickmeme going by the name "unimpressed astronaut," which is unfolding like a New Yorker caption contest for people who read Reddit.

There is a subtle difference between these two contest genres, though. Every New Yorker cartoon takes the universal New Yorker caption, "Christ, what an asshole." This image does not.
