    Who cares if its natural or not, a diamond is a diamond, only ones should be worried are the diamond mine owners


    Race is just too toxic and foolish. The fact that she said some people love the history of natural diamonds, they mean the horrific histories, damn 😢

    Sounds like the 747 could take two rockets.

  5. EMUSK

    What a special moment - private company taking people to space. Total game changer. The flood gates are now open for space exploration.

  6. mac berry

    With this being the first flight with humans they might be able to learn more about the rocket. Humans have better sensors than robots


    “Two first American astronaut” 👩‍🚀 👩🏾‍🚀 oh wait wrong emojis...I wonder if it was only white people who fought the wars to bring the name America up 🕊💤

    Working memory varies, I can do about 10-12 digits with no tricks. My genius friend can do 16.

    Note: The "Friendliness" gene is present in most Opportunistic Hunter/Gatherer animals. This means that technically you could domesticate the vast majority of Canid and Feline member's but it would take a very long time and there are some issue's that arise, Domesticated Animals tend to get smaller than their wild counterparts(Because Size is no longer a necessity unless selectively bred for a job that requires size.) Cat's are smaller than their African Wildcat origin and most dog breeds are smaller than your average Gray Wolf(There most recent cousin) for example. Why does being an Oportunistic Hunter/Gatherer matter? Well, its because dogs and cats were domesticated by realizing that Human's have settlements that contain Resources that they can Scavenge off. And that Human Settlements often attracted easy Prey such as Mice, then we humans noticed that Dogs and Cats are good at a lot of things, so we started to entice them to stay near our settlements and slowly but surely the Cat and Dog were bred into a different species that isn't inherently afraid of humans(Kitten and Puppies born from a ferral mother aren't afraid of you, the mother is though, life experience made her that way.)so with animals like Fox's and Raccoons the same should apply. Both animals already live near human settlements, both are Omnivores(Fox's Less so) and both are currently afraid of us at birth but to be fair they should be considering both are also considered a Pest in modern society(Even though Fox's kill of rodents and other pests just as well as Cats do).

    Man I was so worried my poop was gonna hurt when it came out because I was so blocked up but, like this launch, it was a success!

  11. Geoffry Vickery

    Why do you suppose the virus is so good at infecting human hosts? Since it is new to humans, should it be less adapted to humans rather then animals?

  20. Bold Verto

    U didn't mention something, the mutation we mention it's not self mutation its recombination mutation which may occur in fall or winter with other outbreaks which we may cause worse coronavirus ( again it can be wrong)

  29. Anna Bogdashevsky

    I have a pet arctic fox, a domesticated red fox, a fennec fox, three dogs, and two cats. The foxes are my favorites and are the most beautiful animals I've ever seen. They are the kindest and funniest out of my pets especially my arctic fox. They have come along very far since my childhood where people in school where scared of them.

    @Jeremy Staples . . You are correct, I read it wrong. However, even though they said what they said, didn't mean they did what they did.

    Nice to see they have their over designed coronavirus masks on


    Wow, thank you for explaining it to me. I was actually confused when I watch the Global News.

  66. My life My Rules

    Will the day come when people protest NASA brutality... Destroying human health from space...and playing Gods ...

  67. Alvy Tundag

    Good choice for those astronauts who leaves earth.

  69. Joeschmofromcocomo

    We simply need a new fuel source, or learn more about magnetic fields to slingshot from planet to planet.

  70. Joeschmofromcocomo

    USA USA USA....awesome...we are well past due for space exploration. Space is truly the last frontier

  86. Head Shot

    Everybody don't believe doctors and business man they are destroying health and wealth they are real threat to society

  87. gnarmarmilla

    Thanks much, Verge. I was wondering what was going on with this. Man, 80 million bucks for a seat? That’s crazy...we don’t need to go to space if it cost that much. How about helping single parents send their kids to daycare while they work? How about helping poor people pay rent and finding a place to live? How about paying for people’s educations? It’s amazing, but we have too many other issues to take care of. I pray God will help our leaders to be more wise and understanding.
