I was randomly asking people to name one invention or discovery astronauts made in space. So far nobody was able to name any :)

Sure googling would produce five pretty worthless and pointless ones, but in reality people do not seem to know :ROFLMAO:

Here they are:
  • The fragility of the human body - worthless on Earth
  • Interplanetary contamination - worthless on Earth
  • Growing crystals for medicine - cancer is still deadly. Ask Joe Biden.
  • Cosmic rays and dark matter - when was the last time you used the dark matter?
  • Efficient combustion - worthless on Earth
Stole from here: International Space Station saga: musical oranges or didgeridoo that gorilla

Fun fact: NASA's total inflation-adjusted costs have been more than $900 billion since its creation in 1958 through 2014.

At Minute 1 in the video I just posted about the glovebox they said that their experiments need to be enclosed because the particles, fumes or liquids could escape

"where they might make the astronauts sick or damage the station's sensitive computers and electrical systems".

Did you hear that, Chris Hadfield?

Ok, nevermind

I never in my life heard the sentence "NASA produced some groundbreaking research that will help us with ___"

I would already be content if they could coherently explain what they learned pertaining to their own missions.

Everyone probably knows those, but I just list some of the better videos showing how fake NASA is:


Baby foods are more healthful because of astronaut food research.

Lol, ok, but I'd wager it's less "healthful".

Nestlé under fire for marketing claims on baby milk formulas
Every Parent Should Know The Scandalous History Of Infant Formula
Classic parenting mistake: It's only more healthful if you eat it in space. Somewhere in the fine print it probably says "only healthy when not subject to gravity"

The Astronuts aren't the best actors in the world and also which is it, toothpaste, swallow or spit! let water float around, never let water float around.

Honestly, experiments! you've gotta be kidding. the only experiment happening is seeing how many billions of $$ can be spent with nobody caring about it.

I guess one would argue for a simple landing you don't need a more expensive sustained controlled burst or something but that seems a bit silly compared to every other craft i've seen.

oh the fun they have up there.
I remember learning a long time ago how expensive it is per pound of stuff you bring up there (without looking it up I seem to remember a figure of around 65k/lb), as rocket fuel doesn't grow on trees. If nothing else, I'm glad to know my tax dollars are being pissed away by shipping extra trash into space.

Just wait until they get a drum set up there.

I have to wonder why NASA bothers putting a lot of this out there. Pictures I can understand, as that is cheap and easy propaganda. But why put these bad actors in front of a video camera? For the "f**k yeah science" crowd that NASA appeals to, they are just repeating the same crap over and over again. For the "f**k NASA" crowd, every video seems to offer another thread to tug on to unravel the whole NASA myth. This isn't the 70s anymore where taping over the originals is a legitimate excuse, this stuff stays in the ether in perpetuity.

For me, the debate isn't whether or not they are lying (they are), it is what are they covering up by lying? IMO, all these lies seem like too much to hide a simple black budget money funneling scam, or secret space program (militaries/private companies have plenty of money and ways to hide something like this already). If I had to place a hypothesis it would be that the last time we tried to leave Earth orbit something stopped them and told them to turn around. Whether that "something" came from Earth, Moon, other planets, or other dimensions is debatable. Now NASA is forced to play in the kiddie pool of lower Earth orbit and low-grav planes, lest they suffer intergalactic consequences. Perhaps these entities are the history-scrubbers we run up against in this forum...
