Roscosmos and NASA are consulting on the extension of the ISS operation


Roscosmos and NASA are holding consultations on extending the operation of the International Space Station, TASS reports.

As the head of the state corporation & nbsp; Dmitry Rogozin, on December 31, an official notification was received from the United States to extend the use of the ISS until 2030. The general director of Roscosmos added that consultations with NASA are currently underway on this issue.

It is also noted that the Russian and American sides have prepared a draft agreement on cross-flights of US astronauts on Russian Unions. and Russian cosmonauts on American ships. The document is being coordinated with the Russian Foreign Ministry.

Earlier it was reported that in the coming years Washington intends to & nbsp; continue to work on the ISS with its international partners in the person of Russia, Canada, Japan and Europe.

By According to NASA, during the existence of the ISS, more than three thousand studies were organized on it. At the same time, about 110 countries and territories were involved in carrying out certain works. Therefore, the extension of the American presence at the station will create conditions for another productive decade, the management stressed.

Meanwhile, in 2022, Japanese researchers will begin preparations for the launch of the world's first wooden satellite. With the help of this experiment, the researchers intend to prove the suitability of wood as an environmentally friendly material for the production of spacecraft.

Diabolic – Order & Chaos Lyrics (feat. Ill Bill)


[Verse 1: Ill Bill]

He was the middle son of three children, lived in my building
He went to Tildon, quiet cat, always kept to himself
He never chilled with anybody but his girlfriend, drove an ‘82 Whirlwind
Homie’s grades in school was perfect
Honour student with a talent for mathematics
Used to design computer graphics in class instead of doodling
I would write rhymes, smoke blunts on the bench at night time
While he was doing his homework and watching Nightline
Looking over MIT brochures, invitations to the Pentagon from headhunters of course
I heard that NASA was inquiring about his status
He was about to be a rookie in the NBA of mathematics
A rock star, most astronauts first round draft pick
Amongst physicists and cancer doctors
Then the CIA recruited him to be a shooter
I set him up so that Diabolic could shoot him
We planned assassination plots, lasers attached to gats that pop
Finely glued to the top of the barrel, the average shot
Could take two people’s heads off simultaneously
Aiming at cranium spraying them in the coffin displaying them
This that shoot you in the face movement
Bill and Diabolic is like Schwarzenegger and Stallone in the same movie
I’m like Bronson in the Violent City
Freedom fighter like Mumia, kill cops in Philly listen

[Interlude: The Dark Knight]

Introduce a little anarchy. Upset the established order and everything becomes chaos. Oh, and you know the thing about chaos? It’s fair!

[Verse 2: Diabolic]

It was a quarter past eight o’clock, Bill called me and he named the spot
This vacant lot around the way from the bagel shop
He schooled me exactly to how the CIA would plot
To make hip hop’s value nothing more than a Jacob watch
Ill is ? built with ancient blocks
And the all-seeing eye through Jay’s hand that portrays the Roc
Not to worry, I had engineered, pay the cops
So they would not respond to the calls about a fatal shot
I later topped this roof viewing through a sniper scope
What I like to call a future murder scene with righteous hope
About to light a smoke when two headlights approached
Rifle smoke strikes when they touch ground like lightning bolts
Twice the volts in the same spot amazingly
It’s two birds, one stone, met his partner from the agency
Was ex-KGB, defected through the State Department
Wanted by authorities for treason, he’s been made a target
Took my position with this loaded rifle, aimed and sparked it
A single shot killed them both, blood stained their garments
Guess all the CIA and NASA training it ain’t mattered
When his brains splattered on the pavement as his face shattered
The day after is used to cover tracks and lock the fortress
Shot up sources and disposed of all their rotting corpses
I know it’s stunning, we ain’t running like some track stars
We chill with bodies buried in Uncle Howie’s backyard

[Outro]

Astronomers say they have found a ‘mini-moon’ orbiting Earth — and it’s been here three years


United States

Astronomers say the Earth has drawn in a tiny asteroid and temporarily pulled it into orbit, in a phenomenon that has only been recorded once before.

Key points:

  • The object was discovered by two astronomers working on a NASA-funded project in Arizona
  • The asteroid’s orbit indicates it is temporarily bound to the earth, prompting some astronomers to label it a ‘mini-moon’
  • It was officially announced by the International Astronomical Union’s Minor Planet Centre and named 2020 CD3

The asteroid, which has been named 2020 CD3, is called a “mini-moon” by some astronomers because it has been captured by Earth’s gravitational pull.

The International Astronomical Union’s Minor Planet Centre (MPC) said the object was a “temporarily captured object” (TCO).

It takes 377.8 days to complete each orbit.

“Orbit integrations indicate that this object is temporarily bound to the Earth,” an MPC circular announcing the asteroid read.

“No evidence of perturbations due to solar radiation pressure is seen, and no link to a known artificial object has been found.

“Further observations and dynamical studies are strongly encouraged.”

The object was discovered by Kacper Wierzchos and Theodore Pruyne, researchers at the Catalina Sky Survey (CSS), funded by NASA.

The astronomers had been using a 1.52-metre telescope at the Mount Lemmon Observatory near Tucson, Arizona on February 15.

The CSS helps NASA track near-Earth objects that could be potentially hazardous to the planet.

External Link:

@WierzchosKacper tweet: BIG NEWS (thread 1/3). Earth has a new temporarily captured object/Possible mini-moon called 2020 CD3. On the night of Feb. 15, my Catalina Sky Survey teammate Teddy Pruyne and I found a 20th magnitude object. Here are the discovery images.

Forecasts say 2020 CD3 will stick around until April 2020

Mr Wierzchos said the chunk of carbonaceous rock was relatively small, with a diameter between 1.9-3.5m, and had been in earth’s orbit for three years.

“But it’s a big deal as out of [approximately] 1 million known asteroids, this is just the second asteroid known to orbit Earth,” he said.

“The object has just been announced by the MPC and its orbit shows that it entered Earth’s orbit some three years ago.”

An orbit simulator based off MPC data showed the object orbiting Earth in unstable patterns and eventually being pushed back out into space by April 2020.

While asteroids pass Earth frequently, it is rare for them to be drawn into the Earth’s gravity and remain in orbit for an extended period of time.

Most space rocks are either drawn into the Earth’s atmosphere and burn up upon entry, or partially orbit the Earth before their velocity carries them elsewhere.

In 2006, the first TCO, asteroid 2006 RH120, was also discovered by the CSS and lingered in Earth’s orbit for a year before being hurled back out to space in 2007.

NASA mathematician Katherine Johnson featured in Hidden Figures film dies aged 101


United States

Katherine Johnson, a mathematician who calculated rocket trajectories and earth orbits for NASA’s early space missions and was later portrayed in the 2016 hit film Hidden Figures, about pioneering black female aerospace workers, has died.

She was 101.

Key points:

  • Johnson was one of the “computers” who solved equations by hand in NASA’s early years
  • She considered her work on the Apollo moon missions to be her greatest contribution to space exploration
  • She received the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2015, the United States’ highest civilian honour

Johnson died of natural causes at a retirement community in Newport News, Virginia, family lawyer Donyale YH Reavis said.

NASA administrator Jim Bridenstine said in a statement that Ms Johnson “helped our nation enlarge the frontiers of space even as she made huge strides that also opened doors for women and people of colour”.

Johnson was one of the “computers” who solved equations by hand during NASA’s early years and those of its precursor organisation, the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics.

She and other black women initially worked in a racially segregated computing unit in Hampton, Virginia, that was not officially dissolved until NACA became NASA in 1958.

Signs had dictated which bathrooms the women could use.

Johnson focused on aeroplanes and other research at first. But her work at NASA’s Langley Research Centre eventually shifted to Project Mercury, the nation’s first human space program.

“Our office computed all the [rocket] trajectories,” Johnson told The Virginian-Pilot newspaper in 2012.

“You tell me when and where you want it to come down, and I will tell you where and when and how to launch it.”

In 1961, Johnson did trajectory analysis for Alan Shepard’s Freedom 7 mission, the first to carry an American into space.

The next year, she manually verified the calculations of a nascent NASA computer, an IBM 7090, which plotted John Glenn’s orbits around the planet.

“Get the girl to check the numbers,” a computer-sceptical Glenn had insisted in the days before the launch.

“Katherine organised herself immediately at her desk, growing phone-book-thick stacks of data sheets a number at a time, blocking out everything except the labyrinth of trajectory equations,” Margot Lee Shetterly wrote in her 2016 book Hidden Figures, on which the film is based.

“It took a day and a half of watching the tiny digits pile up: eye-numbing, disorienting work,” Ms Shetterly wrote.

Ms Shetterly said that Ms Johnson was “exceptional in every way”.

Johnson and her co-workers had been relatively unsung heroes of America’s Space Race.

But in 2015, president Barack Obama awarded Johnson — then 97 — the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation’s highest civilian honour.

External Link:

After a lifetime of reaching for the stars, today, Katherine Johnson landed among them. She spent decades as a hidden figure, breaking barriers behind the scenes. But by the end of her life, she had become a hero to millions—including Michelle and me.

Today, Mr Obama tweeted: “After a lifetime of reaching for the stars, today, Katherine Johnson landed among them. She spent decades as a hidden figure, breaking barriers behind the scenes. But by the end of her life, she had become a hero to millions — including Michelle and me.”

External Link:

Thank you QUEEN #KatherineJohnson for sharing your intelligence, poise, grace and beauty with the world! Because of your hard work little girls EVERYWHERE can dream as big as the MOON!!! Your legacy will live on FORVER AND EVER!!! You ran so we could fly!!! I will forever be honored to have been apart of bringing your story to life. You/your story was hidden and thank GOD you are #hiddennomore

The Hidden Figures book and film followed, telling the stories of Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan and Mary Jackson, among others.

Johnson was portrayed in the film by actress Taraji P Henson. The film was nominated for best picture Oscar and grossed more than $US200 million ($300 million) worldwide.

In 2017, Johnson was brought on stage at the Academy Awards ceremony to thunderous applause.

Johnson was born Katherine Coleman on August 26, 1918, in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia, near the Virginia border.

Johnson taught at black public schools before becoming one of three black students to integrate West Virginia’s graduate schools in 1939.

In 1953, she started working at the all-black West Area Computing unit at what was then called Langley Memorial Aeronautical Laboratory in Hampton.

Johnson is survived by two of her three daughters, six grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren, said Mr Reavis, the family lawyer.

Johnson spent her later years encouraging students to enter the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

Looking back, Johnson said she had little time to worry about being treated unequally.

“My dad taught us ‘You are as good as anybody in this town, but you’re no better,'” Johnson told NASA in 2008.

“I don’t have a feeling of inferiority. Never had. I’m as good as anybody, but no better.”

Spacecraft lifts off on mission to take first-ever photos of Sun’s poles


United States

Europe and NASA’s Solar Orbiter has rocketed into space on an unprecedented mission to capture the first pictures of the Sun’s elusive poles.

Key points:

  • The Solar Orbiter will manoeuvre into a unique orbit that will take it over both poles, which have never been photographed before
  • It will work with NASA’s Parker Solar Probe which has already passed within 18.6 million km of the Sun, an all-time record
  • The observations will shed light on other stars, providing clues as to the potential habitability of worlds in other solar systems, and help scientists predict space weather

The $2.2 billion spacecraft will join NASA’s Parker Solar Probe, launched 18 months ago, in coming perilously close to the Sun to unveil its secrets.

Project manager for the European Space Agency Cesar Garcia Marirrodriga said it was a “fantastic moment”.

“We’re on the way to the Sun. Go Solar Orbiter,” he said.

“It’s like we’re unstoppable.”

Solar Orbiter performs in ‘symphony’ with Parker probe

Unlike the Parker probe, Solar Orbiter will not venture close enough to penetrate the Sun’s corona, or crown-like outer atmosphere.

But it will manoeuvre into a unique out-of-plane orbit that will take it over both poles, never photographed before.

European Space Agency’s science director Gunther Hasinger said the Sun-staring space duo would be like an “orchestra”.

“Every instrument plays a different tune, but together they play the symphony of the Sun,” he said.

Solar Orbiter was made in Europe, along with nine science instruments.

NASA provided the 10tth instrument and arranged the late-night launch from Cape Canaveral in the United States.

Nearly 1,000 scientists and engineers from across Europe gathered with their US colleagues under a full moon as United Launch Alliance’s Atlas V rocket blasted off, illuminating the sky for miles around. Crowds also jammed nearby roads and beaches.

The rocket was visible for four minutes after lift-off.

Europe’s project scientist Daniel Mueller was thrilled, calling it “picture perfect”. His NASA counterpart, scientist Holly Gilbert, said: “One word: Wow.”

NASA declared success 90 minutes later, once the Solar Orbiter’s solar wings were unfurled.

The boxy 1,800-kilogram spacecraft with spindly instrument booms and antennas will swing past Venus in December 2020 and again in 2021, and then past Earth, using the planets’ gravity to alter its path.

Full science operations will begin in late 2021, with the first close solar encounter in 2022 and more every six months.

Solar Orbiter to capture never-before-seen pole snaps

At its closest approach, Solar Orbiter will come within 42 million kilometres of the Sun, well within the orbit of Mercury.

The Parker Solar Probe, by contrast, has already passed within 18.6 million km of the Sun, an all-time record, and is shooting for a slim gap of 6 million km by 2025.

But it’s flying nowhere near the poles. That is where Solar Orbiter will shine.

The Sun’s poles are pockmarked with dark, constantly shifting coronal holes. They’re hubs for the Sun’s magnetic field, flipping polarity every 11 years.

How viable really is the plan to build a spaceport in the Top End?
The ABC has been told the project is on track, with a rocket potentially in the air this dry season. But could the site function like a rocket airport for organisations like NASA?

Solar Orbiter’s head-on views should finally yield a full 3D view of the Sun, 150 million km from our home planet.

Director of NASA’s heliophysics division Nicola Fox said Solar Orbiter would offer a new perspective on the Sun.

“With Solar Observatory looking right down at the poles, we’ll be able to see these huge coronal hole structures,” she said

“That’s where all the fast solar wind comes from.

“It really is a completely different view.”

To protect the sensitive instruments from the Sun’s blistering heat, engineers have devised a heat shield with an outer black coating made of burned bone charcoal similar to what was used in prehistoric cave paintings.

The 3×2.4m heat shield is just 38cm thick, and made of titanium foil with gaps in between to shed heat.

It can withstand temperatures up to nearly 530 degrees Celsius.

Embedded in the heat shield are five peepholes of varying sizes that will stay open just long enough for the science instruments to take measurements in X-ray, ultraviolet, visible and other wavelengths.

Probes to help forecast space weather

The observations will shed light on other stars, providing clues as to the potential habitability of worlds in other solar systems.

Closer to home, the findings will help scientists better predict space weather, which can disrupt communications.

Space Force logo looks familiar
The Pentagon’s new United States Space Force is not Star Trek’s Starfleet Command, but their logos bear a striking similarity.

Ian Walters, project manager for Airbus Defence and Space, which designed and built the spacecraft, said predicting space’s weather was important for several reasons.

“We need to know how the Sun affects the local environment here on Earth, and also Mars and the Moon when we move there,” he said.

“We’ve been lucky so far the last 150 years [since a colossal solar storm last hit].

“We need to predict that. We just can’t wait for it to happen.”

The US-European Ulysses spacecraft, launched in 1990, flew over the Sun’s poles, but from farther afield and with no cameras on board. It’s been silent for more than a decade.

Europe and NASA’s Soho spacecraft, launched in 1995, is still sending back valuable solar data.

Altogether, more than a dozen spacecraft have focused on the Sun over the past 30 years.

It took until now, however, for technology to allow elaborate spacecraft like Parker and Solar Orbiter to get close without being fried.

Ms Fox said it was “a golden age” for solar physics.

“So much science still yet to do, and definitely a great time to be a heliophysicist,” she said.

Bushfire smoke plume expected to lap the globe, NASA says


Adelaide 5000

NASA is predicting smoke from the country’s devastating bushfires will make it all the way around the world, with the potential to move over Australian skies again in the coming days.

Key points:

  • NASA maps show a bushfire smoke plume crossing the Pacific Ocean
  • The smoke is predicted to cross Australia again in the coming days
  • While it may not be visible, it could cause hazy skies over parts of the country

However, one expert has said it may not be visible to the naked eye.

Several Australian cities have already been blanketed with smoke during the bushfire crisis in the past few weeks, including Canberra, Adelaide, Melbourne and Sydney, where air quality was rated at its “worst ever” in mid-December.

Satellite imaging tracking the progress of a smoke plume shows it drifting out over the Tasman Sea and then to the Pacific Ocean.

“Over the past week, NASA satellites have observed an extraordinary amount of smoke injected into the atmosphere from the Australian fires and its subsequent eastward dispersal,” the agency said on its website.

“The smoke is expected to make at least one full circuit around the globe, returning once again to the skies over Australia.”

NASA has been monitoring the movement of smoke from the Australian bushfires for at least the past fortnight, during which time the plume has crossed the Tasman Sea.

“The smoke is having a dramatic impact on New Zealand, causing severe air quality issues across the country and visibly darkening mountain-top snow,” the agency said.

NASA said the intense heat from bushfires across Australia — including New South Wales, Victoria, the Adelaide Hills and Kangaroo Island — had triggered fire-induced thunderstorms.

University of New South Wales astrophysicist Lisa Harvey-Smith has been following the plume’s progress through NASA images.

She said it would not be long before the smoke was travelling in Australian airspace again.

“I would expect the smoke to have completely circled the globe and be visible above southern parts of WA in the next few days, probably not at ground level but high in the atmosphere,” Professor Harvey-Smith said.

Smoke particles could do ‘several loops’

Professor Harvey-Smith said the smoke cloud had “already enveloped around three quarters of the world” and was being pushed along by thunderstorms generated by the fires, and had reached 17 kilometres above sea level.

“Being at that high altitude allows the smoke to travel relatively unimpeded, above most of the atmosphere and weather,” she said.

ABC News Breakfast weather presenter Nate Byrne said the smoke would likely become diluted as it crossed over South America, meaning the plume may not be visible once it reaches Australia again.

“The old thinking was that the solution to pollution was dilution,” he said.

“But in the case of these fires — they are so huge, they are still burning, and will be burning for quite some time — there’s a constant of supply of smoke particles into the air.

“By the time the wind gets all the way back around to the west of Australia, it’s spent a lot of time being mixed with clean air from higher up or lower down in the atmosphere, so you won’t see the thick smoke like you’d see right next to the fire.

“Most likely the only way we’ll be able to detect it is from satellites.”

However, Byrne said it was still possible that Perth locals might notice a “hazy day” soon.

He said while it did not appear to have reached the west coast just yet, it probably would “within days”.

“Smoke particles don’t disappear — they have to be removed from the air somehow,” he said.

“The more smoke particles there are in the air, the more likely it is that some will be able to make it all the way around the Earth and, in fact, maybe do several loops.

“Just like when you see really huge volcanic explosions, the ash from those can travel several times around the globe and cause havoc for quite some time.”

Now I’m on top, ooh, they surrounding (I’m on top)

[Chorus]
I been on my own shit for so damn long (Ayy)
Niggas tryna steal the wave I won’t let ’em run off
They think that I’m soft ’cause I make sad songs (Hah)
‘Till we catch ’em slippin’ at the red light and peel off (Grra grra grra)
Sticks in the air
I’m so damn high I could sit in the air
If I put my watch on the floor you will slip over there, ice
Bitch I’m dope like the end of a crack pipe

[Verse 2]
I drop a three in the 20 I’m leanin’
I put a light on my gun and it’s beamin’
That bitch really love boat captains, yeah, ’cause she swallow my semen
I don’t want pints of the Wock’ bitch I need it
I don’t need Perkys but damnit I’m fiendin’
Your nigga told you he richer than me I said “Wake up lil’ nigga you know that you dreamin’”
Whoa-oh
I’m in my prime, tick tock
Look at the time, big Glock
That is a 9, get off
Takin’ off like NASA, huh
Finna give you left right like catches, huh
Everyday I wake up cashin’, huh
In the bitch pussy I’m splashin’, huh
Hide the cocaine in the napkin, huh
She do the yayo for fashion
Haters designing my fabric
I’m really hungry for money but these withdrawals got me fastin’, yeah
Goin’ through it, they recorded me pullin’ up in an Aston like a Kutcher movie
Dog that ho like Scooby, maybe even Snoopy
Don’t got time for nat nat bitches why you always snoopin’
Got my gun aimin’ at any rat movin’
Let it go and put the rat-tat-tat-tat-tat in Ratatouille
If you don’t like me you can sue me, heard your girlfriend wanna screw me
Leave yo head off your body, I’ll chop it like suey
I’ve come to realize that I rule the world right now
And if I wanted I could take your girl right now
It’s my life, it’s my world
It’s your bitch? Fuck it, no it’s my girl

[Chorus]
I been on my own shit for so damn long (Ayy)
Niggas tryna steal the wave I won’t let ’em run off
They think that I’m soft ’cause I make sad songs (Hah)
‘Till we catch ’em slippin’ at the red light and peel off (Grra grra grra)
Sticks in the air
I’m so damn high I could sit in the air
If I put my watch on the floor you will slip over there, ice
Bitch I’m dope like the end of a crack pipe

New level – Soufian feat. Crack Ignaz songtexte


Songtexte Soufian – New level

Ja, zum hunderten Mal stell’ ich mir jetzt die Frage
Sag, soll ich es tun oder soll ich es lassen?
Am Ende des Abends gibt’s nichts außer Patte
Weil Patte regiert unsre Straßen seit Jahren
Auf Cash Money Brother, wie Brate sein Brate
Aus Scheiße mach Gold, aus dem Kilo ‘ne Tonne
Um Straße zu sein, musst du ‘n Mann sein, du Schwuchtel
Bring Mama die Tüten nach Haus und bleib hungrig
Trag’ tief in mei’m Herzen ‘ne Narbe von Kummer
Weil Brüder zu Fotzen geworden sind, choya
Ich schwöre bei Gott, ich wollt nix
Doch gab Gutes mit Liebe und Herz, sagt man bei uns L’Houma
Akhi, meine Gosse ist nicht so wie deine
Ich schieße mit Blei von ‘nem Fahrrad, wenn’s sein muss
Bruder für Bruder, bei uns ist das Standard
Doch Fotzen hab’n Patte gesehen, wurden anders.(new level)

Azzlack Motherf*ck, das ist new level
Gödlife Gödlife, das ist new level
Lichtgang, meine Squad, das ist new level
Bald bin ich reich, Diggi, new level
Swah swah, mach’ Gwap, das ist new level
Flieg’ hoch zum Mond, Diggi, new leveeel
Lichtgeschwindigkeit, new leveeel
Es ist Gang Gang, es ist new leveeel.

New leveeel, new leveeel
Neue Chain, new Metal
Meine Shows – Heavy Metal
Meine Moves – zu special
Gehe direkt durch die Decke
Gebe ‘nen F**k auf die Presse
Gebe ‘nen F**k auf ein Label, ja
Sitze im Rarri und gebe Gas
Ich komme nicht aus der Gegenwart
Schieße auf dich mit der Lasergun
Meine Feinde weinen bei jedem Move
Denn ich mache als wäre ich aus Tränengas
Woah woah, yeah yeah
Versuri-lyrics.info
Nie genug, ich will mehr
Sie komm’n niemals hinterher
Neues leveeel, Alter, yeahhh.

Azzlack Motherfuck, das ist new leveeel

Yeah, bei uns herrschen andere Regeln
Das heißt: Lobe machen, ned reden
Der S**t ist wie Telekinese
Ist so, wie wir Sachen bewegen
Ja, Brudi, ich weiß, du kannst sehen
Ja, der ganze Block ist am beben
Und des ist ned leicht zu versteh’n
Aber das bleibt wie wir leben
Mach’ dieses Gwap, oida, mach’ dieses Gwap
Greif’ in die Kasse und moch’ mi davon
Oida, moch mi nit haß, oida, moch mit nit haß
Weil ich komm’ mit dem Squad und mit sehr viel davon
Und i leb’ so wie NASA, i leb’ so wie NASA
Du weißt, ich geb’ Gas und heb’ ab bis zum Mond
Oida, weiß, was ich man’, oida, weiß, was ich man’
B***h, ich weiß, dass du weißt, Ignaz K ist der Don, ja
Ja, dein Brei ist nur Einheit, für den Sche*ss hab’ i kein’ Zeit
Doch ich kill diese Keks, schick’ sie mit ihre Backpackrap direkt zurück in die Steinzeit
Und ich f*ck’ sie mit Feinheit
Und zerstückel’ sie zeitgleich
Dabei sieht man das nicht, viel zu quick in den G’nick mit ‘nem Stich und danach heißt es Bye Bye.

Azzlack Motherf*ck, das ist new leveeel
Gödlife Gödlife, das ist new leveeel
Lichtgang, meine Squad, das ist new leveeel
Bald bin ich reich, Diggi, new leveeel
Swah swah, mach’ Gwap, das ist new leveeel

New leveeelll. (x15)

Jacob Sartorius – Hit Or Miss lyrics


I heard that life gets hard when you’re older
And the fun stuff’s just for kids
But what I realize as I grow up
Is that it’s just a hit or miss

So let’s not worry about tomorrow-ow-ow, nah-nah, nah-nah
We all good, baby we alright
So let’s not worry about tomorrow-ow-ow, nah-nah, nah-nah
We all good, baby we alright
So let’s not worry about tomorrow-ow-ow, nah-nah, nah-nah
We all good, baby we alright
So let’s not worry about tomorrow-ow-ow, nah-nah, nah-nah
We all good, baby we alright

How, how you doing? Girl tell me what it do
I see you with your friends but I’m tryna kick it with you
Thought you already knew, but you didn’t
I’m tryna roll with you so I can show you how we livin’
And I been on a mission tryna take you to the dance floor
We go up like NASA to the places that they can’t go
But what’s your name though? Didn’t even ask her
These other girls fake, I see through them like Casper
Get it, get it, get it

‘Cause girl you got me thinking we could really do it
This could be our chance I don’t wanna lose it
If you don’t think I care bout you I’ma prove it
And by the way, I really like the way you move it
So let’s keep going, don’t gotta stop
Please don’t worry about tomorrow, we just live it up
I know that there used to be girls in the past, but I forgot
Now you the only one all up in my thoughts

I heard that life gets hard when you’re older
And the fun stuff’s just for kids
But what I realized as I grow up
Is that it’s just a hit or miss

So let’s not worry about tomorrow-ow-ow, nah-nah, nah-nah
We all good, baby we alright
So let’s not worry about tomorrow-ow-ow, nah-nah, nah-nah
We all good, baby we alright
So let’s not worry about tomorrow-ow-ow, nah-nah, nah-nah
We all good, baby we alright
So let’s not worry about tomorrow-ow-ow, nah-nah, nah-nah
We all good, baby we alright

What you thinking? I think I need some Blues Clues
Losing my mind just to make sure I don’t lose you
So please just let me know, my heart’s a metronome
And if it stops beating then that means I’ll let you go
And now you know I’m glad I met you though
Because the second we connected, girl, our love is so electrical
And yeah, you way above the typical
So come with me and we can make it ’cause you never know
Get it, get it, get it

‘Cause girl you got me thinking we could really do it
This could be our chance I don’t wanna lose it
If you don’t think I care bout you I’ma prove it
And by the way, I really like the way you move it
So let’s keep going, don’t gotta stop
We ain’t worried ’bout tomorrow, we just live it up
I never be thinking ’bout those other girls, you all I got
It’s a hit or miss, come on baby take a shot

I heard that life gets hard when you’re older
And the fun stuff’s just for kids
But what I realized as I grow up
Is that it’s just a hit or miss

So let’s not worry about tomorrow-ow-ow, nah-nah, nah-nah
We all good, baby we alright
So let’s not worry about tomorrow-ow-ow, nah-nah, nah-nah
We all good, baby we alright
So let’s not worry about tomorrow-ow-ow, nah-nah, nah-nah
We all good, baby we alright
So let’s not worry about tomorrow-ow-ow, nah-nah, nah-nah
We all good, baby we alright


Bitch – Ugly God lyrics


Lyrics Ugly God – Bitch

Bitch. (x17)

No I’m not a rapper, this the first page of the chapter
B*tch I’m a disaster, bite your b*tch just like a raptor
Booty gang pastor, I’m the hash slinging slasher
Pussy bacon Escobar, plugged in like an adapter
All my music slappin’, make you dance just like a KAPA b*tch
Boy I’m broke as f*ck, 30 bands straight from FAFSA b*tch
Hoe give me some space, no I ain’t talkin’ about no NASA b*tch
Gucci head to toe, you wipe me down just like a napkin.

B*tch. (x17)

B*tch you know my handle, hump your b*tch just like a camel
B*tch I run the scandal cuz I’m lit just like a candle
I can’t trust a b*tch I’m flippin hoes just like the channels
Young ugly god play these hoes like a piano
I’m colder than your cooler, deeper then the sewer
All my niggas shooters piss me off they’ll have to do you
I brought her to my room and spread her legs just like a rumor
I f*cked her with no condom but no worries b*tch I’m neutered.

B*tchhh. (x33)

B.o.B – Stanley Kubrick (Elements Album)


[Hook]
Giant steps are what you take, walking on the moon
I hope my legs don’t break, walking on
Walking on the moon

[Verse 1]
B.o.B, what the hell you doing?
What the fuck does Stanley Kubrick have to do with
Astronauts and moon men
Who the hell you fooling?
Fuck you and this whole stupid flat Earth movement
Well, if you don’t like it sue, even science proves it
You’re a college student, shouldn’t be assuming
Green screen, sound stage, sound proofing
Time to film a movie shoot
Gotta use my tools in the glass case
Astronaut suit footprint don’t match the boot
Been to the moon once and ain’t been back since
And I’m just trying to figure out where the tax dollars went
NASA

[Hook]
Giant steps are what you take, walking on the moon
I hope my legs don’t break, walking on
Walking on the moon

[Verse 2]
Not a huge fan of the award for the best rapper
But they give the moon man award to the best actor
Guess we must go straight to the source and let’s ask NASA
Uh, how do you explain the occurrence of lunar waves?
Why do we only see one half of the lunar face?
How do you explain air bubbles if you in space?
Why is it so important to lie to the human race?
Million mile internet that travels light years
But they can’t show a space shuttle re-enter the atmosphere, okay
To blast off you gotta practice Freemasonry
An acronym that stands for Not A Space Agency

[Hook: B.o.B]
Some may say, I’m wishing my days away, no way
And if it’s the price I pay, some say
Tomorrow’s another day, you’ll stay
Walking on, walking on the moon
