  1. Very happy to see this round table. Thanks to TESTED, I learned about the book and really enjoyed a well written book that “nails” the science. Ridley Scott’s movie is excellent

  2. Yeah, there is so many parts and techniques involved. I´m loking at worbla clear for the visor.

    I´m MaarekSteele on therpf 🙂

  3. The most interesting part, to me, was Chris Hadfield’s final answer about whether he’d go to Mars. Answer definitely highlighted why we need humans for these missions and not just robots.

  4. When Weir said he had a question for Adam and said it wasn’t an investigative reporting thing, I was SO hoping he’d drop the RFID question just for laughs. 😀
