whether it is justified the stratospheric costs or what comes next for mankind gateway to the final frontier. to the u.s. now where the midterm elections will begin in a couple of hours americans will cost in the future of the house of representatives and the senate as well as state and local offices opinion polls predict a setback for barack obama's democrats which would hand the republicans a majority but there's artie's garniture chicken reports some voters are more concerned about the corporate backing for many of the candidates. a typical attack ad from this election season. was. except the opponent who approved the ad is herself an expert in months throwing and the organization that back surgery is funded by viewers. this election cycle has
5:07 am
been a torrijos in the amount of dirt candidates were pouring onto each other their bankrupting america and leaving our children the bill this is a special election year in the u.s. for the first time corporations are allowed to funnel as much money as they want into political campaigns and they are definitely not missing out on the chance to buy influence on capitol hill what they're hoping to do is bend laws and regulations or prevent new laws and regulations from being approved or cutting their bottom lines the problem is that a lot of these rules and regulations exist for a purpose. they are supposed to protect the public interest the election system in the us is such that it's virtually impossible to run for office without strong financial backing but the bigger the backing the more candidates ole to their benefactors between creases and normal for me the you know equality in influencing policy many current policy making increasing the legal process in influencing their
5:08 am
regulatory process because we. are behind all of these contributions if not all of the citizens of the united states but basically the most powerful and drita effect mentor population to watch the influence in action take a republican leader in the house of representatives john boehner wall street invested millions of dollars in his campaign is also a darling among large health insurance oil firms and drug manufacturers boehner is campaigning a gas all kinds of government regulations as well as a tax increase for the rich and the other candidate running for reelection republican congressman spencer baucus who is a ranking member of a house committee on financial services he has reportedly taken over four million dollars from wall street and plants to find i guess tougher rules for the financial market the list of corporate favorites on capitol hill is long and not only republicans are on it the democratic process is supposed to be
5:09 am
a check on corporate power and instead what we're seeing is corporations hijacking that system in order to funnel more money to themselves many argue the new supreme court decision which made it possible for corporations to invest unlimited amounts of money in politics and be able to be credited as anonymous donors has basically legalized corruption one definition of core option is that privatization of public policy fear mongering is arguably the main tool corporations used to gain public support for. the candidates they choose some channel like fox news are especially good at getting their message across and it's fear that pushes people to the streets i would like my vote to count if you'd be more democratic. and some fear their interests may be left out because of someone's special interest on the outside its democracy is people coming to
5:10 am
a polling station first putting across the name of the candidate they like but in these elections with the influence of corporations it really has the vote in american mail is money going to. washington d.c. . you know without it later we'll bring you the story of an afghan woman forced to decide between her children and her parents find out. why it's just one hundred percent helplessness of afghan. one of the most ambitious projects in history international space station is marking a decade in it an epic milestone for space exploration that's the longest period of human habitation outside the sound sphere on. november second two thousand the first permanent crew reaches the international space station as the world watches its really humanity's most them vicious
5:11 am
engineering project to date a mixture of science technology and political cooperation between formal sworn enemies in the ten years since the sense has expanded to the size of a football field and received two hundred lives it is. now the station is nearly complete but the jury in what it has achieved is still out but for a shock but at the before the i.s.o.'s is a breakthrough of the corporation of before there were separate space agencies now they work together it's a leap forward in this station has cost the taxpayer one hundred billion dollars and that's just absurd it's too much but it's their money now admit they're not sure what to expect from the station and that includes the expedition one cosmonauts themselves you to get them going up trains but then i says crew members his own training was more chaotic than we're going to give them and i said when we started training for it the station itself did not exist there were no manuals and
5:12 am
there were no exercise machines with the first crews job was to fully activate the station much of it had been assembled separately in russia in the united states and the first time these parts came together was and space of the militia would be the first two weeks on there were extremely stressful because if we failed we'd have to return to earth and abandon the station it would never have been constructed as planned expedition one was a success despite problems with construction following the columbia shuttle disaster three years later most of the modules were eventually successfully docked the completed space station provides a unique platform for experiments and weightlessness we could develop new materials and medicines starting real now and next year we're going to find out if you have researchers tinkering in space we can have breakthroughs if not the whole thing was a waste but others believe that the value of the i assess is not a scientific discoveries its lifespan has already been extended to twenty twenty and possibly beyond that if we're looking at projects of using that i assess as
5:13 am
a docking port for missions to the moon and even mars. and if mankind does venture further afield i search will serve both as a blueprint and an instruction manual of space should do and don'ts whatever its limitations and budget over and then i assess as. important at the torah word no longer seemed like everything was possible in space and there were no longer the cold war budgets to fund that all the i's says still proves that space research can be right at the edge of human endeavor either of nerve artsy moscow where the first european astronaut to command an i assess mission has told r.t. that the ambitious isis project was made possible by global corporation. the international space station is there of course because we had the soyuz vehicles in the time that is spatial was not flying now again our so use vehicles will be the only ones to be able to transport the crew to the international space station for
5:14 am
a certain time technology and. transport capabilities for sure helped a lot the international space station gets very big corporation the space station would not be there would not exist to build out cooperation between russia and the u.s. military also have to take into account a smaller part of the european space agency the japanese space agency canada. they all make great contributions to the international space station and i think this is the great strength of just a suggestion is that it's really an international corporation there for the benefit of humankind for sure if you want to continue space exploration if you want to have sustainable space exploration to do two asteroids to mars we will have to make some breakthrough technologies meet in propulsion be then energy being it in life support systems you know that space agencies from all over the world working on these breakthrough technologies and i hope that in the next ten years to come true that was frank when the first i assess commander from the european space agency.
