      +Atzin I don’t know, do you think spending 900 Million dollars to send someone to do nothing for a year is not a waste? If he was on a certain mission and they asked him to take blood samples while he is out there it wouldn’t be a waste.
      But sending someone to the space just to do some sampling and absolutely nothing else is just Stupid and waste of money and people’s time.

    3:40 What is going on here? I’m sure that animation is meant to depict a chromosome with telomeres on the tips, but that has almost no resemblance to the structure of a chromosome. It bears closer resemblance to a double helix of DNA.

      in reality earth is flat and stationary, outer space does not exist, there is a dome/firmament above us. go to my playlist and watch the videos and learn about flat earth, if you really research flat earth then you gonna become a flat earther, I promise you. ——————————- don’t try to debate with me because you gonna lose, I debated with a lot of globe believers and none of them could prove the earth is a spinning ball, there is no curvature……
