  1. They used the international space station’s film of earth to use with the recorded voice.. which is really cool… I remember when this happened. I was five years old, and I was sitting on my daddy’s lap while listening to the radio in the kitchen…, in the same home I’m in now…in Merced CA….. Our government was pissed about not doing it first , but the whole world was excited that it happened at all.. remember, it wasn’t too long before this that the Wright brothers were trying to fly !!!!

  2. Fake…! This is just a video of a zoom’ed shot of guy with really bumpy pale skin with cloudy odor.

  4. Absolutely Amazing. Awesome Movie
