“I keep hitting the space bar, but I’m still on Earth”

“I keep hitting/pressing the space bar, but I’m still on earth” is a jocular saying that has been printed on many images. “i got a text last night that said ‘madison. there is a space bar on my phone. i pressed it so many times and i am still on earth?’” was posted on Twitter by Madison on August 30, 2009.
   
“I keep hitting the space bar but I’m still on earth :(” was posted on Twitter by @Blurugu on September 15, 2011. “I keep pressing the space bar but i’m still on earth” was posted on Twitter by kar on January 24, 2015. The joke possibly originated from an image.
   
“Iamonthemoonandthereisnowheretogetabeer. Thereisnospacebar” and “Where do astronauts go to drink?”/“The spacebar” are other space bar jokes.
     
         
Wikipedia: Space bar
The space bar, spacebar, blank, or space key is a key on a typewriter or alphanumeric keyboard in the form of a horizontal bar in the lowermost row, significantly wider than other keys. Its main purpose is to conveniently enter a space, e.g., between words during typing.
 
A typical space bar key is very large, enough so that a thumb from either hand can use it, and is almost always found on the bottom row of standard keyboard layouts.
