    Chris Cassidy is currently ALONE on the US section of the International Space Station. How crazy is that? I really enjoyed speaking with him and Jonny. I started this process thinking the Seals probably focus on the ability to overpower the enemy and smash things, but it turns out humility and the ability to work on a team is by far the most important attribute. You can follow Chris and Jonny on twitter and Instagram (I'll put the links in the description). Thank you to those who are supporting Smarter Every Day on Patreon! ( ) Did you get your baseballs?

      @EARTH IS seriously FLAT LOL! I LOVE THIS GUY! This is probably one of those derision workers (I don't know their name, if nothing yet then ™){look at me Trumping that s#!t} I just learned about thanks to @SmarterEveryday! Thanks man for enlightenment to my ignorance. Not being dramatic, it's always good to live sustainably and fill the void of ignorance. Okay, maybe just a little dramatically.

      @Kevin Gamez really don't know what that's all about. So one big plot line and a bunch of small details that may or may not be important. Ignorance do to absence is a complication of being isolated from a society to one varying degree and duration of time. It seems it's more of a s#!t show here ATM than I previous thought. Yeah team!🥺

      I don't understand. Side? Is everything not copacetic on the INTERNATIONAL Space Station‽ There's some big plot line that we don't know about because of a secret being withheld from the public; isn't there? Frigging Humans! Gives you a reason to be proud of them one minute and then pulls the rug out from under you the next. God, your hang ups! Lol, pun unintentional.

    Being humble is the closest thing to perfection when it comes to human qualities. The industries of ego like finance and political leadership often fail and collapse without people like this leading them and I’m glad to have seen this

    My favorite Smarter Every Day episode by far. Walked away with a great sense humility, and pride. Not for anything I’ve accomplished, but for the pride I feel as an American. And knowing that these amazing men and women represent the best of the best the United States has to offer. And they do it extremely well. Thanks Dustin for doing what you do, and showing people that if you have the right mindset and humility, there is nothing you can’t do or accomplish. Especially when you know that you can count on the person next to you.

    You will probably never see this, but I love how you place a verse of the Bible at the end of your videos, meaning, there's science that governs most if not all that happens in our material existence, but behind and above all is God, who provides for everything. God bless you man, and keep up the great work!

    You’ve got two initially synchronized atomic clocks and two iphone cameras. One iphone is recording one atomic clock display and both these are placed at the international space station. The other iphone is recording the other atomic clock display and both are fixed at earth’s surface. After a time span needed to desynchronize the two atomic clocks

    • Eduardo

      by one tenth of a second due to the difference between the two clocks displacement speeds then all equipment - clocks and iphones are brought together. Pne will rightly notice the one thenth of a second phase lag between the clocks but will the iphone videos be at the same sinchronous second?

    And soon a woman seal? LOL! Look, we all, young and old, black and white, male and female are equal in our Creators eyes. But you would have to be very naive, ignorant, or just plain uneducated or inexperienced to not understand there are very large physical, psychological, and biological differences between men and women. Therefore, there is never going to be a man that is going to be equal in all ways to a woman, or a woman that will be equal in all ways to a man, which is a good thing, just as they were designed and created to be, so they should never be compared as equals in this respect. But equal in worth as human beings, most certainly.

    Great video. I spent a lot of time with SEALs because I am a submariner and was on a submarine that would deliver them to their area to depart and sometimes return. They are a great group of men and I am proud to call them a step brother. See, as submariners, we share a lot with our submariner brothers that was blood sweat and tears. We are also at home in the ocean depths and you got the chance to make a great cruise with some of my brothers. The SEALs I have a great respect for because when they see that Trident, they know that is a fellow brother just as when I see dolphins, I also see a brother. Keep up the great work

    Is there an international (since im not from the US) or US part of the military that is basically exactly like the seals but doesnt aim to harm others, I would love to be a part of that. I just don't want to handle a gun or intentially harm anyone even if they are an "enemy", the training and brotherhood part are still very important though.

    Starting from around 31:31 it seems like the footage up on the ISS has some white dots impairing the video. I know at higher altitudes above the Earth's atmosphere, astronauts have been said to experience high energy particles enter their retinas and impair their vision somewhat. Could the white dots on the footage be evidence of high energy particles entering the camera's lens?
