    I always watch when there are new videos.

  3. "Exploration" of everything is desire of sick mind. Why you need to know what's The Earth's Core made of for example? God said to Adam & Eve not to eat that apple. But they "explored"…

  4. I hope that we build a very sophisticated space station in the future, and we build stations on the moon and Mars, and go the first woman on the moon, that will be wonderful. 🙄😍😊🤔

  5. You rock my Sister. You have big balls! I`m so happy to see `us` getting up to the 302/402 mile marker. You are a credit to the planet. I have a really nice Friend who hit a milestone as a Canadian Infantry Officer a few years ago. Maureen Wellwood. First ever female, in Canadain history, to ever hit the rank of LCol

  6. When looking at the videos next to each other in my feed, this one, out of the batch of 4, had the most views by far.
    My thought is a lot of people are so excited to see more females out there.

  9. Getting to that age to start time porting galaxy movies in, cc reigate 📱👽. It’s on a per planet basis, ticktack season, or if we are ready, some larger ships. Think it over. As astronauts, as leaders, what would you love to experience in your dream?


  10. We are not dumb on the African continent. It's the politicians that are dumb and as a result we accomplish nothing. Here is testimony that under the right political conditions, we are as good as any.
