  1. if we don't colect them they will vanish into jupiter
    (mars will have a grand collection of asteriods – collect them before they vanish into the sun and jupiter – to master a solar system)

  2. Fun stuff to see, wonder which ones will be visited and if they are from The Trojans, The Greeks or The Hildas. Knew of the first two groupings of asteroids, but not the third.

  3. Slightly off topic question I thought one of the main reason Pluto is not classified anymore as a planet is because it has not cleared its orbit of other bodies, is no these the same for Jupiter?

  4. I don't think that you can protect the ozone area if you have thousands of Starlink Satellites!
    Generally, the weather is cold this days (14+15 December 2020) and the Sun is incredibly hot the last 2 days!
    You have a big problem There ☝️ Houston!
    Only Governments should own International Space Agencies so they can obligate all countries and Industries to follow the best security and environmental (Climate) practices!
    And if our WIFI/WLAN Signals are poor, it means that there are Antennas/Dishes Frequencies Problems!
    Germans, Russians and Chinese are Advanced Experts in this Industry Field!
    This is what you need to know!

  5. You're not completely satisfied with these facts that GOD MADE ALL THAT IS SEEN AND HAS NOT YET BEEN SERN BY MAN…..BUT EXPLORING THE UNIVERSE TO UNDERSTAND HOW WE TICK AND MAYBE LEARN HOW WE MAYBE BETTER STEWARDS OF THE WORLD IS ALWAYS A GOOD THING

  6. NASA makes me proud to be part of the glorious Human race, for every fault we have a great accomplishment.

    The greatest crime of the 20th century was culling NASA's budget.

    Love from Australia, make us proud.

  8. Hello , Sir , why you are thinking like this ? You are going in a 100% wrong way . Why you are not interested to hear my words ? Please try to know the correct matter about formation of the Universe . You have to know so much bout the Universe . You have to formulate the theory about formation of the Universe .

  9. Ah my god, they should have named the mission Helen instead of Lucy. A great opportunity was missed for a mythological encounter.

    Helen is the name of the Greek queen whose abduction sparked the Trojan wars…

  10. I don't know. I kinda didn't like The video.
    1. Trojan are found in most planet's orbits.
    2. Mix a fossil image with a astronomy video gives fuel to terraplanits and idiots All around.
    I believe you have to think about This things before showcase This stuff.
