//END ALIAS\\
alias s_medic "voicemenu 0 0"
alias "fact_end" "bind e s_medic; clear; echo If you want to spit these facts again, all you need to do is re-exec this cfg file." //Again, you can change e to the key you'd like to use. You also may need to replace <s_medic> with the command that's bound to your key by default.
Just copy and paste the script into something like factsaboutspace.cfg

To use it, just type exec factsaboutspace into the console and press the key you chose to bind "fact" to (e by default) to start spitting some facts. Further instructions are on the script itself. Enjoy!
