gone there is a dangerous precedent been sat here where the big tech companies have appointed themselves as the gatekeepers are political thought an opinion this intervention comes ahead of crucial midterm elections in the united states it's a sign of social media giants waiting even further into the minefield of free speech versus fake news and could be seen by many as a sign of meddling in itself. we've spoken to some of those who have been affected by facebook's latest purge they say the tech giant is taking aim at dissenting voices. this is clearly a political move when you have these major tech companies appointing themselves as the gatekeepers of political thought i was told that this was because of spamming that we are mass collectively pushing our information on people or that it was operated from a fake account all of these things are on true the information that i've used to post on facebook was information that i produced on my website which goes against

comes through space nothing is left to chance there's contingencies for everything sail safes protocols and provisions as checks double checks triple checks and so is this track record the best in the world proves it's as safe as can be but that only gets you so far space is after all the final frontier. former astronauts we spoke to say crews are always well prepared for such emergencies and praised of chinon and hague for their quick thinking actions. i flew on to the space station aboard a sleeze rocket myself came back in this well used capsule on my fourth mission and you know it kind of brought me back to what it's like being in that vehicle and imagining going through this kind of emergency aboard but as you heard from the transmissions the crew was very calm very professional and they did everything
