  2. Awesome Astronauts🤣Slow Mo😂Thanks, I needed the fun laugh today. I also wave to ya, when You fly over My city🛰️The commentary, Priceless💯✌️

  3. physics question: why is the ball moving so slow? is the fact of no gravity makes the ball move slower because it can't get momentum to speed? plz i need an answer?

  4. I don't think those tennis rackets are to United States Tennis Association's size spec's. They seem a little…..petite. 😉

  5. I love space so much! I am studying hard in school to be an astronomer. All A's and B's so far and I hope to stay this way(not trying to brag). Thanks for the video, love your channel

  6. One question how he throws the ball and he wait to come down to hit
    ….
    Ther e is no gravity ,so how it comes down….?
    Whether the ball hit on the roof and comes down with the same forces ! ?

  7. What happens if you have your own spacecraft and dock it to the ISS without permission of the NASA and ESA would I be charged with unauthorized spacecraft parking fees

  9. Watching a game of tennis in space, omplete wwith tricks and somersaults is extremely entertaining. So why do they jump cut it every 2-3 seconds? It is almost like they have to lie down on the ground while the plane regains altitude.

  10. 😂 I would go nuts if there was no up and down because it’s space. I’d be arguing with my crew about whatever way I consider right side up is the right way.
