    How much are you getting paid to sit in front of a camera & record yourself preforming your report?

    Silly Question: Why not use the existing docking ports and have the private companies make their spacecraft able dock with them?

    why do they need an adapter? can't they just make it similar to the Russian docks?

    Os it just me, or is it sad that the United States has to depend on the Russians or private companies to do this? It's not like we once had the best space agency in the world or anything!

    Awesome video! Very inspiring and exciting. USB-S(PACE)? I was going to suggest USB-C(OSMOS)!

    Price tag? Ppl of the world this space station is a huge waste of money , not one thing they have done helped us here on the ground. Take the money just for this docking port and I can help a small town fix all of its problems .we need to stop giving these nasholes are money ,they have a 20 million dollar a day budget . That could be used to rebuild America instead of playing in space .i know there will be a bunches of comments from space nerds and that's fine but when you leave your house and see all the homelessness and empty building ect ect ect then tell me again how this space crap is more important then fixing that?

    Waste of money.NASA should talk to ISRO for cheaper transportation

  • August 25, 2016 at 8:31 pm

    Clueless is your nasa facts , all your link showed was crap , wake up !what has any of that useless crap done ? Fuel cells helped who? a German company build better cars? How does that help the us ? Monitoring the pollution has helped how ? Did they help your air quality any place you know? One of their space x rockets poisoning our air when they launch = twenty thousand cars starting up and driving across the U.S. Light materials= crap that only last a tenth of the time under the uv damage of the sun which only means more junk in the ground !!!! Should I keep going or do you still need more convincing that nasa is the biggest waste of money ?

    As a boy and as a young man I looked up to NASA. But now that I am older I am wiser and I am not at all impressed that NASA has teamed with Boeing, the worlds second largest arms exporter. Shame NASA.

    Ack. I hate it when I start noticing the vocal fry. It's not fair because I'm the one doing it but I can't take it. Anyway, love it. Makes me want to play Kerbal Space Program.

    Why can't commercial craft just use the kurs guidance system already present, or the TriDAR system from the last few shuttle missions?
