No it's;

In space...no one can hear you nag.

I hear they did an experiment to blind her. They put a windshield in front of her.

So what China has an advanced space program that can put people in space, build a space station and destroy enemy satellites. We have a space program that embraces diversity and Islam. S/

Maybe we can pay them to take us into space.
When these commercial companies discover the financial and legal risks are too high.

Anyone remember the first Russian woman in space?

According to the story I heard, she went into a panic screaming and crying and and failed to take command of her vehicle. Ground controllers had to land the vehicle and they never sent a woman alone into space again.

That there’s a bloody lie. They’ve sent other women into space.

Svetlana Savitskaya and Yelena Kondikova also went into space, one with the Soviet progamme in 1984 and one with the Shuttle.

It is known that she was nauseous and uncomfortable for much of the flight, but I’ve never heard of her panicking and freaking out.

***That there’s a bloody lie. **

like I said, it is a story I heard back in the early 1970s.
