There's an astronaut saying: In space, "there is no problem so bad that you can't make it worse." So how do you deal with the complexity, the sheer pressure, of dealing with dangerous and scary situations? Retired colonel Chris Hadfield paints a vivid portrait of how to be prepared for the worst in space (and life) -- and it starts with walking into a spider's web. Watch for a special space-y performance.

Excellent Bullsh**ter. He should sell life insurance. Too bad the in the other case, the good senator couldn’t have held that punch of deceit so close to the end. I guess we see who was in the studio for all the past or not this afternoon. Why isn’t Elon going?

What I learned from NASA opened my eyes : NASA THEMSELVES is telling you escape velocity is currently not possible for a spaceship "An Endless Cycle : escape velocity is one of the biggest challenges facing [CONTINUOUS TENSE] space travel. The vehicle requires an enormous amount of fuel to break through Earth's gravitational pull. All that fuel adds significant weight to the spacecraft, and when an object is heavier, it takes more thrust to lift it. To create more thrust, you need more fuel. It's a cycle that scientists are hoping [CONTINUOUS TENSE ] to resolve by creating lighter vehicles, more efficient fuels and new methods of propulsion that don't require the same ingredients to attain great speeds." They then immediately CONTRADICT THEMSELVES by saying this : "That cycle of speed, fuel and weight was a primary reason the Saturn V rocket that took the first astronauts to the Moon was SO LARGE." If it was so large then it would need more fuel and if it needed more fuel it would be larger - do you see how they contradict their "ENDLESS CYCLE" admittance. (reference NASA-Escape Velocity Fun and Games) I think the key word is "Games" that NASA has been playing with the public.

BTW, people should know that there is state sanctioned propaganda in place by Smith-Mundt Act. You should think twice what you are told by the NEWS, and the officials. From 9/11 to space missions, etc. False flags 🚩 and deception; for money, control and your soul.

I’d love to meet Chris to explain how my experience felt when going blind to. To clear up any confusion, I’m legally blind and have vision lost, from time to time there’s moments in my life where such anxiety gets to it causing me to lose certain senses and feels, I have lost vision for days to weeks and yes the easiest thing I understood how to deal with it was to be calm and panicles, I’ve truly never understood what causes it or why at those moments in life it happens

But the reality also is that today's manned space travel still relies on the Soyuz rocket which is basically old school soviet era technology from the 60s. But its relatively cheap and reliable a safe enough module in getting astronauts to the space station and back. But the dreams of the 60s space race has not been realized aside from the moon landings we have no permanent manned bases on the moon and Mars is still a pipe dream as far as human exploration is concerned.
