    India needs America to continue using the fuel, they got the banks and petrol stations. A lot of the returning marines in the hospitals suicide sp they say but hospital can write history as well.
    Thats why they nuked Japan and now saying Russia is an ally. After they grabbed the central communications hub.
    Anti satelite missile sales to India then communications failing.

    Really disappointed in the product placement and the obvious sponsorship. Why must the message become part of the advertisement? a more direct and less patronizing “sponsored by” message would have my respect and patronage.

    ugh. Wasting helium should be a crime. When the world runs out of the limited amount left, that's it — forever. Such a shame.

    They should have named it Artemis, the twin of Apollo.

    Several things –
    (A) -40 degrees is the exact temperature that all water vapor will crystalize. If you are in that temperature environment, and you are not using something to safeguard your breathing, ice crystals will form in your lungs, cutting them to shreds and you will die.
    (B) Your electronics package will not need heating (sans relays and batteries), as long as the enclosure is completely devoid of moisture.
    (C) GPS (NAVSTAR) will not work above 60,000 feet. The program is not set up to triangulate beyond that altitude.
    (D) 85,000 feet (16.09848484 miles) is NOT the edge of space; nowhere near it. In fact there are TWO 'edges' of space: [1] Aerophysics has it at 328,083.9894816 feet (62.13711922 miles) AMSL, and [2] Astrophysics has it at 387,139.1075904 feet (73.32180068 miles) AMSL.
    (E) To make 30 pounds neutrally buoyant you would need 500 cubic feet of helium-3 (based on the purity [grade] of helium selected).
    (F) 20 km is only 65,616.79790033333 feet, NOT 85,000 feet.
    I'm sorry, but this guy Kishore Hari is a FAKE geek. (and they couldn't even line-up the chute rings with what was painted on the capsule)
