Hello, I never tried to meditate, but when I  was stress I closed my eyes and I think something different, and continue to work, but I think the make way to relax when I go to the GYM, it's very helpfull, because when you do exercise you forget any problem!!

I agree with the space exploration, I like when the people researh new things about our space, I don't think so is a waste of time and money

Yes, I also think that is waste of time and money, because is too much money go to that exploration. I think that is connected with production of arms and wars. It should be that money employ to medicine and make to stop wars.

SOMETIMES I DOWNLOAD THE PODCAST, SOMETIMES, NOT, JUST LISTEN IT ONLINE.

I don't think that space exploration is a waste of time and money. I think it can solve some problems,  e.g. humanity can find new sources of energy and extract minerals on other objects in the solar system. I hope space discovering can partly solve the problem of over-population, in the future of course. 

Hello  I have never tried to meditate, although I try Yoga. But when I stress, I try to change what I think or I go for a walk.

 I have once experienced meditation and felt it really helpful to  calm down.
