The response to this video has been huge. One of our biggest videos ever. We worked our ass off on these animations. Big shout out to Mike and Eli, our stellar animators. Also big thanks to Curiosity Stream, without them we simple would not have the budget to make something this ambitious. If you liked this video, you will love that Armstrong documentary on CS. It gives me some serious goals to work towards. Packed with information and beautiful story telling.

@Sweetllew I dont have a link it was in the google scroll I do believe maybe type in recent fixes to the space station. I do believe they where putting an antenna on it
Sweetllew Dag sedan
@Peter Parker could you give me the link? It would be great to confirm or deny said evidence.

@Sweetllew All good bro. Not long ago a month or so they where doing repairs on the outside of the space station it showed 2 astronauts then a diver suited up with a camera below them. I am not joking that I seen this picture either. I will look around I believe it was on the google scroll.... NASA or Space was the link or click I'm not joking or lying on what I had seen again.. Take care my brother the TRUTH well it's out there.....
Sweetllew Dag sedan
@Peter Parker I can perfectly agree with what you say except for the ocean thing. What? The space station is in the ocean? Can you give me any proof of that? And sorry mate but, I am needing proof in order to believe in something. Oh wait, it’s a belief. You believe that nasa lies. You believe the moon landing is faked. I CRACKED THE CODE! Let me say this, I KNOW it’s real! I KNOW NASA is telling the truth! A belief needs faith but knowledge needs proof. Without you giving me proof I will just have to assume you are believing it’s fake but not knowing.
Sweetllew Dag sedan
@Peter Parker ok so let me get this straight. NASA is spying on us using satellites, right? And you don’t believe space exists? Please propose to me how in the hell is NASA able to keep those satellites up there without space. How is NASA able to keep these satellites is orbit around the earth without space. If they can somehow do that, then they have made the most aerodynamic satellites to ever exist, while making them look like they are less aerodynamic than a fridge. Also, you still have essentially no proof that this moon landing was faked. None. Zero. Nothing. All you have is speculation. Saying that someone is lying but giving literally no evidence is not going to get you anywhere in court. Please go bang your head against a wall and come back with proof. No ranting, no speculation, JUST GIVE ME SOME DAMN PROOF!

I think NASA should try planting tress or shrubs on Mars transporting water with the help of artificial intelligence machine for watering the plants so that we can come to know weather the life on mars last for forever or not, or human beings will find to survive a place on mars and the other thought of planting tress or shrubs on mars will be the open challenge and maybe the atmosphere on mars will change and provides with oxygen......!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The engineering is impressive but what will be even more impressive is when we send humans to the moon and Mars and develop cities in the future as well space stations in space. That will be the most exciting thing I believe since the moon landing in the 1960's, which will excite everyone in the world in terms of major progress. I think we all need to pick up the pace and work to develop starships and super ships with light speed technology. The technology we seen in Star Wars and Star Trek which we view as science fiction has to eventually become reality, much like what we seen in Back to the Future 2 the films. It is not surprising many inspiring scientists take famous works for inspiration from science fiction to envision futurism for space exploration.

Crazy waste of tax dollars. We will never live on Mars, nobody cares if there was ever life on mars. We can't mine mars. In other words Mars serves no purpose other than to waste money. The amount of money spent on this project could have improved life here on Earth. Way to go NASA, please continue to waste our money, we love it when you do that with no possible return.

Come on man you are one of favorite researchers and I have learned a lot from you over the years. Please though you know we have had the anti gravity tech since 1951. You know this is all a lie, I know you make a living on this but it is now time to put the PTB on their butts. They are back peddling now. Brian you know the landing of the rover was not correct. It verred left and then back right once jets turned on and kept the parachute with jets. Secondly the elevations and announced rate of descent just did not match up. The rover landed at a higher elevation than NASTA anticipated. Look at it and join me on my mission for full disclosure now. Eisenhower scored the tech. and we never told the masses. Join me Brian I need your help.
