It's a really old BSD joke. Found in /etc/passwd as the full name of root since the 1980s. The joke is still there today.

oh, is this some kind of trauma again?
mom, dad, i wanted to let you know i've spent the last 18 months in houston and cape canaveral doing excruciating physical training and, well... i'm an astronaut
oh, honey, we're just heartbroken for you. that's such a hard life. we miss our landbound child and don't know what having an astronaut kid is gonna be like. have you tried base jumping instead? maybe a nice ferris wheel? remember we're grieving too

all the enbies reading this are way too cute
so many people convinced they are "building the future" are actually just rehashing the present and the past. like every new supposedly planet-scale system that is ASCII only on some level, or the cryptocurrency community who's wildest dreams for a future society still involve money, hierarchy, wealth disparity, centralized control. this isn't progress.
