With the International Space Station being visible over Wales this week, NASA have warned their astronauts to avoid looking directly into Neath.

The ISS will be visible from Wales throughout March, which in scientific terms means if we can see them, they can see us.

NASA spokesperson Pete Bowen said: “There are complex things that we haven’t discovered about Neath yet and looking directly into it could disrupt some of the finest minds in the world.

“We’re aware the sports team in the area are called the Neath All Blacks, which may or may not represent a black hole near the Gnoll.

“We’re seeking funding to see if we can try and find some intelligent life in Neath Abbey, but apparently that’ll cost more than trying to find water on Mars.”

Swansea Councillor Theresa Connell said: “The ISS flying over Wales is very exciting, knowing that it’s there, nestled behind all of the cloud we constantly have means it is a marvel that we’ll never get to see.

“I’ve spoken to the Council Leader and he agrees that if it hovers over Swansea for any longer that a minute, we’ll grant it planning permission to turn into student flats.”

Neath resident Rob Gray added: “Why is ISIS flying over Neath?

“This is probably because Brexit is being delayed.”
