  1. "The crew has radios". Wow, cutting edge stuff there NASA

    "We use digital simulations to practice". I thought it was because after multiple years and tens of billions of taxpayer dollars, there still isn't any completed hardware

    (ps, regarding the snark, this is not directed toward NASA as much as Congress that has put NASA in an impossible technical situation in a politically motivated pork project that is designed to transfer as much taxpayer money as possible to several well connected contracting firms. Actual flight worthy hardware is a nice extra if it actually happens. It is NOT the primary goal)
