  1. NASA has always had such ridiculous plans. Then to the moon again, and then to Mars. And they can’t get to the ISS themselves. We will no longer see American astronauts on the ISS in the coming years! Russia is tired of carrying everything. All crews from the summer of 2020 in honor of the Olympics in Tokyo will be Russian!

  2. Love EVA's but is there a reason for not progressing EVA wise with a railing system that surrounds all the space stations' main components. Astronauts can move like a hanged t-shirt inside a closet (obviously with a rolling mechanism) and get fast to where they need to be and also return back. You still have the traditional EVA method, but it seems that something like this could make things a lot faster. You can even manipulate the railing system like you do with the arm and get it into perfect position for whatever task needs to be done.

  3. NASA should offer free low orbit flights for flat Earthers that end up at the end of the Earth. Make it really bright and hot and ends up in the Pacific. We don't want waste.

  4. NASA you should have just put a blower on the rover and then it could have blown all the sand of the rovers solar panels and basically you are not really wasting any power since you are doing it to get more power.

  5. Hlo NASA scientists ,I'm Narayani a 14 year old girl from India ,I want join NASA in the coming yrs so can u plzz guide me .l have tried communicating to u through Instagram, Twitter and your official site but I couldn't ,so can you plzzz guide me regarding all studies and procedure
