    24. Sajid mon

      I don't why but ISS sounds like some terrorist organization

    25. king james488

      "if you don't live on the ISS get nord VPN so you can watch movies on netflix without region locks!" squandered opportunities...

    26. king james488

    34. Reinout

      Her dad: What are your intentions with my daughter? Me: 1:52

    35. LinuxSBC

      By the way, the ISS is limited to 6 astronauts because of escape pods, not because of room. The pods docked to the station only have 6 seats so any more astronauts couldn't come back down in an emergency. However, the Crew Dragon expands that to 7 if I remember correctly due to its larger capacity.

    36. Arthur

      But what about the Oxygen on Board?

    37. Junct

      And the US military budget can build 6 ISS per year. Imagine the things that we can do if we just don't buy bigger gun every year

      1. Angad Singh

        And what happens if war breaks out? We get slaughtered. France made the same mistake during WW1. The Germans cut through them like cheese. We can never let our guard down.

    38. Veyronp87

      8:10 Sorry if I'm being stupid, but didn't columbia burn up on re entry, so it would've left off all of the supplies on the space station before the accident?

    66. Alabama Coastie

      They ordered The Last Jedi, why? It couldn't have been for entertainment purposes. Must have been done to satisfy the SJWs.

    75. Gaming, music and jokes! *and a bit of cooking*

      If Life of Boris did a video about the International Space Station, would the intro have the words ISS Boris? (No offence).

    76. Mausi Imlicht

    83. Owne

      At 5:55 i think there was a typo because wendover says that food only takes up a small portion of the cargo at launches however 530 ibs is around a 1/4 of 6000 ibs, not 1/10th

      1. Reinatr48

        530/6000 is around 1/11th
