Bullshit on the waste. Some of the waste is flown out, most is packed up on berms by the end of the world. 3/4 or more stays. USAP pockets the taxpayer money. Don't let this guy twist your head up with lies.

I wonder what people thought when they saw the South Pole for the first time. I'm pretty sure it wasn't 'This place looks like a great place to live. Let's settle down here like the Britains did on America'. Thanks for the interesting video.

the content is good but the narration of the video is not good and not appropriate....the voice is not good and there is a sense of SENSATIONALIZATION to increase viewership - you should have employed a British narrator with a sense of maturity, moderation and credibility !!

Why would any astronomer view the night sky from the earth? If satellites are real then all viewing should be from space and not from the spinning, vibrating, wobbling, orbiting planet with an atmosphere. All things space related consistently has questions that can not be logically answered. Take this video with a grain of common sense.
