It is a pride for me that you are welcoming my article and my work, and this encourages me to continue looking for interesting topics to write about... I think you could even make a film about this watch and its history...
    In any case, it has been a pleasure to be able to write it, and I sincerely believe that beBee and its bees deserve no less.... I only hope and desire, that you have liked it very much, and I hope that it has also taught you something.

    #14 Como ya he dicho en alguna ocasión... Esa era la idea, hablar un poco de toda la historia de este reloj, que es justamente lo que lo hace grande y lo diferencia del resto... Pero desde luego, la creación de un reloj mecánico, con este nivel de precisión y excelencia, es hoy en día, en estos tiempos de tecnología, robótica, e inteligencia artificial, sin duda uno de los trabajos más difíciles que podamos imaginar... Y los astronautas de la NASA siguen utilizando este reloj, como uno de sus equipamientos vitales e imprescindibles... El control y la medición del tiempo es vital en el espacio... Y los aparatos electrónicos, son mucho más vulnerables, de lo que podamos pensar, a la exposicion a eventos inesperados que pudieran ocurrir en elespacio exterior.

    #14 As I have already said on occasion... That was the idea, to talk a little bit about the whole history of this watch, which is precisely what makes it great and differentiates it from the rest.... But of course, the creation of a mechanical watch, with this level of precision and excellence, is nowadays, in these times of technology, robotics, and artificial intelligence, undoubtedly one of the most difficult works we can imagine... And NASA astronauts continue to use this watch, as one of their vital and essential equipment.... The control and measurement of time is vital in space... And electronic devices are much more vulnerable than we might think, to exposure to unexpected events that may occur in outer space.

    beBee is already correcting it for the new version, I ask for a little patience.

    Thank you very much for the welcome you are giving to this article, I think it is undoubtedly an important part of space history, and the history of Omega.

    The problem with a lot of these type of articles is the mindset of 'well, we've made this planet an uninhabital garbage dump, so let's abandon it and go find another planet to pillage'. Until the human race changes the way in which it thinks of its home planet, the course will always lead to annihilation.

    My take after 7 years on the subject: Climate Change is real but it is by default , in other words it is done by a few people not 9 billions @David B. Grinberg and @Francisco Lopez #1
    Zacharias 🐝 Voulgaris
    27/08/2017 #2 Zacharias 🐝 Voulgaris
    It's great that someone brings a sense of perspective to that whole matter. Otherwise, we may end up believing all sorts of fallacies because technically, there is an effect out there, even if it's negligible. If the climate-change deniers used the same argument they have to weight loss, they might argue that moving to the poles of the Earth would be a good strategy for losing weight, since there the gravitational pull of the planet is smaller. Technically, this is correct, but the effect is so small, that it's hard to measure. Just like the effect of the sun's fluctuations are to the temperature of our planet.
    David B. Grinberg
    26/08/2017 #1 David B. Grinberg
    Good post, Francisco, this is a "hot button" issue (pun intended).
    First, please note I consider myself an environmentalist. I am NOT a climate change denier and do in fact believe that greenhouse gases have lead to warming temperatures on Earth, However, from a long-term scientific perspective I would also note the following:
    The Earth and our solar system go through all kinds of cyclical changes over many millions or years. Thus, could it be possible that there's also a much larger cyclical planetary warming trend for which scientists are unaware because the trend began well before human civilization? Why can't both theories be true?
