+Gipfelbesteiger 
mit drehen sich die Fussnägel nach oben. So ein junger Mensch und so verblendet. Nochmal, nehme bitte ein seht sehr gutes Fernglas oder geh dort hin wo solche stehen und schau durch. Du bist doch sowas von verblendet. 
So mein Lieber, was ist in Nepal los? Haben die Menschen dort mehr gegen Gott gesündigt als wir? Warum müssen diese armen Menschen so leiden? Weil Gott oder Dein Teufel das so wollen? Hat Gott die jetzt bestraft und die Beben angestellt? 
Letzte Frage, bist Du in ärztlicher Behandlung oder schreibst Du aus einer Anstalt. Also was ist mit den Fakten die ich genannt habe zum Mond? Ich will nicht Deine Gelaber, ich will Antworten zum Spiegel dort oben und ich will wissen warum die Russen nichts gesagt haben als sie "keine" Funksprüche abfingen! Aber nicht rum, sondern antworte klar und deutlich. Deine Videos Strotzen vor Andeutungen und Lügen. Das ist die Wahrheit. Das mit dem Steissbein hast Du auch noch nicht beantwortet. Du bist nur zu bedauern und hast dermassen die Hosen voll vor Angst vor dem Tod wie alle die so jämmerlich an einen Gott glauben.

This video gives an impression of some of the ISS research ESA astronaut +Samantha Cristoforetti has been involved in during her stay on the orbital outpost. Looks like she and Paxi enjoy all the cool science!
