Comentário: Continuo achando essa história uma tremenda de uma loucura, já que até mesmo ousadia tem limite, mas ficarei na torcida para, caso essa missão venha ocorrer em janeiro de 2018 (coisa que não acredito), a mesma possa ser realizada com sucesso, pois o seu êxito certamente acelerará o desenvolvimento humano no espaço.
