  2. I get claustrophobic whenever I think about what this must be like for them.
    We are so lucky to have the Earth.

    • I would imagine the experience would be non-stop excitement. These are just a few steps of to ultimately reach other planets. I’d imagine there’s another planet out there so much better than earth – unimaginably more beautiful and sadly we won’t experience it. One day the first colonists will arrive there and we’ll all be long dead when that day happens.

      It’s only exciting because everyone is watching, and you might only be doing it to impress someone. But that someone might only experience a life like that as extreme hardship.

      The Earth is beautiful. We are perfectly suited to it. Even if there is another planet out there we could live on, it will be aeons before we can acclimate to the differences. And take generations to even get there. And you could never return.

      Right now, we can’t even raise a single family in space. Even if we could, it would be At tremendous cost, and damage to the environment.

  3. Why the hell are video links popping up in front of the last three pages of text? Doesn’t anyone think this through?

  4. My first thought was how do you store 45 years worth of food and water in a tiny capsule.

  5. space x crap

  6. Another win for SpaceX😁

  7. 🙄🙄😉

  8. There’s nothing exciting about the space program anymore and a little raft boat to pick the astronauts up with wow the Apollo program had an aircraft carrier with helicopters to bring the astronauts back in and everybody knew the astronauts by name it’s just a business now no surprises and the whole world was watching

  9. Why does this look like it was shot in 1970?

      i got a better question. why are there nasa astronauts in a spacex capsule? only nasa employees are allowed to go to space?

    • ButterPoppin | August 3, 2020 at 7:11 PM | Reply

      it’s live stream footage

    • @velociraptor898 “Higher on the page” Ya that thing is probably in oblivion by now with the amount of dislikes it got. Start thinking critically please…

  10. Elon’s going to sell cheap parts to the Russians and Chinese next.

  11. I’m sorry, but all I see is a massive resource and money pit, with no regard for pollution of our atmosphere.

    • How does this create pollution? Also with the discoveries this program makes the hope is to start harvesting resources OFF of Earth so we preserve our environment even better. Please think critically before commenting

  12. Faked as always

    • Alright if it was fake then give at least 100 points where you can tell it is fake because if it was fake it would be obvious. Saying the whole video doesn’t count. Each point needs a redeeming factor proving it is fake. If you find 100 then reply to this comment.

  13. You couldn’t read the comments at the last there because of ADS! When they do that… I MAKE IT A POINT OF NEVER EVER BUYING WHATEVER IT IS THEY ARE TRYING TO SELL! Reverse advertising is what it is called! T-shirts and a BIAS news channel! GET LOST! C697opine!
