It is nice Japanese (& Japanese American) astronauts visit the ISS -- and have contributed to the International Space Station construction (e.g. Kibo modules I & II).

How totally awesome!!!

Mr. Noguchi must be very, very popular in Japan, I would think, and deservedly so.

It occurs to me that Mr. Musk should be given honorary Japanese citizenship for all he has done for the world. Born and raised in South Africa to a Canadian mother and South African father, he emigrated to the USA and became a millionaire. Today, in the vein of Albert Einstein, he represents what a citizen of the world looks like.

I would be very very worried if I got inside a rocket and then had the feeling of ' this this doesn't want to go into space'.

Going to space is a waste of time and money. There are so many problems that the world is facing right that it is beyond me to think that people would even want to think about colonizing Mars or anywhere in outer space for that. Going to space only serves to fulfill the egos of politicians in wealthy countries. Space travel is just BS in my humble opinion. If someone can come up with one logical reason as to why it is necessary, then I will change my opinion.
