ElectroBOOM : I think we should let Paul family handle the prototype testing and troubleshooting though, why waste precious lives?

jaynbob42 : You'll have my vote dude but really wouldn't want to lose you if something went wrong. You're one of the good guys that could actually help this planet. We need more of you, not sending you away. But I know if it was a dream of mine, I'd do anything to go. So I don't blame you and will support ya. However, sadly, if it comes down to some popular vote thing, I think we all know that a complete moron like Logan would win. A total undeserving waste of space, who will boil it down to a joke and not appreciate what he was experiencing. It's a big task but my fingers are firmly crossed in the hope that a great guy like you gets the chance ahead of the sheep. Also none of my business but I hope that Kanyon not only agrees you should go, but maybe gets a ride along to :)

Space duck : Cody wants to test his vacuum experiments on a large scale

Charlie Blackett : Drinking Mercury in Zero G! *Cody'sLab* Published on Aug 23, 2024

JohnnyCakes : Hey everyone, Cody here. Since I lost the vote to go around in the Falcon rocket we are building a space station in my backyard

Casey Urquhart : Please let's send some flat earthers so we can stop this nonsense.

AaronTheBlackDragon : Youtubers are artists in the same way as a lot of people around me sometimes like to discribe artists. Survival artists, you don´t know how much money you gonna have at the end of the month and you have to create something to stay alive. Also considering the ammounts of time and effort one needs to poor into making Youtube videos. I´d see beeing a Youtuber is beeing an artist.

Robert Talada : You and/or SmarterEveryDay

Baraqiel : If anyone should be given a chance to go fly around the moon-...wait, chance of not coming back?....Wait no, Cody, don't go! wait nononono D:

SuperDave : If theres even a risk of them not coming back.. i think id prefer the Pauls to go xD

andrew balliet : If the danger factor is high, would it not be doing the world a great service to send Jake and Logan?

Zephyr0ner : Cody I'll be voting you but only if you will be uploading videos from actual flight :)

vmp916 : After watching the video, I get the intention even more about why he wants to send artists. The first private mission to the moon being shared with people with different abilities to express themselves and the world around them means something. Further more, while I think some youtubers make art, and some youtube videos can be considered art depending on who you ask, Cody is closer to a scientist and educator. I don't think he would be chosen. That being said, if someone from the YouTube science community was selected to go, I would have to root for Cody. I think he does deserve it in that sense.

omar oyt : JAKE PAUL PLEASE SEND HIM TO THE SUN PLZ

Zonies Coasters : Obviously a flat earth youtuber! But if they die then the rest of the flat earthers are gonna go nuts with even more conspiracy theories.

Upcycle Electronics : I don't know about how people/MZ would perceive youtubers. However if you really want to go Cody, you really should take this video down IMO. As an INTJ on the Briggs Meyers test I'm probably the last person capable of observing how people feel emotionally or emotional perception in general, but this video strikes me as odd for your character as I perceive it and it's boarder line offputting. I don't mean that in any kind of insulting or negative sense, it's simply my honest, off the cuff perception. If you really want to go, treat this like a contest. Make a video about why you should be considered, why you want to go, and how you can effect the world by going. No one cares about how much a person want's to go, or especially how they anticipate competing with others. The point is, "how you can influence the world." Make an influential upload, then get that video to go viral to show that you really are a broad scope "influencer" worth bringing along. I have no doubt you would do interesting things and show an interesting prospective. Are you really ready for that change though? Your probably not going to return to this life. By that I mean your probably going to be looking at several orders of magnitude of celebrity and you'll be looking at an enormous change in demands on your time. You'll be offered lots of money to speak at public events, and expectations will become a lot higher due to the increased scrutiny you'll receive from an exponentially larger audience. That's a lot to take on. I have to ask, do you think your ready for a Neil Armstrong situation where your thrust into celebrity whether you like it or not? Are you ready to answer the same stupid questions and be judged/valued because of a seat you rode on? Personally, that whole live stream was quite remarkable to me, but for a rather unusual reason. When the dude from "The Everyday Astronaut" managed to get a real question in amongst all the major media outlets it was quite remarkable. Unfortunately I think his question was a bit of a wasted opportunity when it comes to really capturing public interest. I bet 95+% of people watching had no idea what he was asking about or what Elon Musk was saying with his reply. While I'm casually interested in this stuff, I'm not entirely sure about what he was talking about. As far as youtubers go, I'd say your competition would really be Destin from Smarter Every Day, Derek from Veritasium, Michael from Vsauce, and the Manley Scott for serious contenders, maybe Furzy too. I think MZ will favor pop mainstream culture over alt pop science culture, but you might be able to influence that kind of thing with a video about your arguements for going. If it were up to me I would put Isaac Arthur on that rocket hands down. If that guy were to hit the mainstream with his ideas under these circumstances, he'd become Carl Sagan incarnate. His philosophy and positivity really could change the world in a highly significant way. That's just my $0.002 adsense. -Jake

Hayden Carrigg : Did you purposely make your framed play button angled or did you blow something up XD

Bad Wolf Bay : I vote you. But you gotta come back.

Demeter Ákos : I love your art. So I disliked your video. Hope you understand.

Cubeazza : Oh yeah send some soppy painters up, cuz they're the people that advance the human race?

worldofzap : IDK it’s a toss up. I would like to see Amy Shira Teitel “Vintage Space” she probably wouldn’t go either? So hate to make it seem like you’re a runner up but you have my vote if the first two do not go.

CargoCultScientist : YES HE MUST TAKE OUR CODY THERE IS NO OTHER WAY

Andrey Rumming : Seriously, I call on Markiplier for this one. As cool as space is, he is the number 1 go to person for space trips. He LOVES space beyond belief

Phineas : Vintage space should go

the honest_troll : No way Logan would get the vote. He's hated

Chelonian 123 : Another youtuber who I think deserves to go is Alec Steele. He's to the point that I consider his work art.

atsed11 : BUT what if we send a flat earther to the moon instead

crownofall : I'd have to ask what the odds are of not returning, I'd be happy to vote for you to make the trip but if it's more voting people off the planet well... there are many in the line ahead of you. personally I see no reason not to return unless his design has a flaw I'm not aware of. it's not like it's the SLS that's being built using the worst parts of the shuttle.

Folkevongen : #sendsimonetospace

Custom Coin Rings USA : I don't have any kids or a wife (yet) but even my parental instincts are telling me to tell you NOT to go first as I would never want to see something bad happen to you! Let them work out the "bugs" first on expendable people like Jake Paul, KSI, and all the "fake prank" YouTubers that no one will miss lol! You should only go once it has proven itself repeatably to be safe. Your knowledge and teaching skills are worth so much more to the world than the risk associated with being the first person on that risky voyage.

Cryptonat : Cody for president!

John Lee Pettimore III : Cody, I just sent them the following email: I would like to mention that one of the passengers should be a person to document the experiences of all those involved. Preferably someone with a passion for science as well as being both capable and experienced in using the video arts to bring information to the world. To this end, i would like to bring to your attention a young man named Cody Reeder of YouTube's "Cody's Lab". This gentleman has the knowledge that helps bring the fundamentals of science and greater understanding of the world around us, as well as the charisma to engage the viewers. I would go so far as to call him a Renaissance Man that shows a deep interest in, and a solid functioning knowledge of, electronics, chemistry, geology, apiculture, agriculture, mechanics, and physics. On a daily basis, he employs the video arts to bring this information to many hundreds of thousands of subscribers to his channel. His efforts have helped expand the minds and experiences of us all. To see Cody as anything but a true artist is to downplay his ability to engage the viewers and challenge us all to expand our thinking and our world; to consider our society and our place in it by using his videos to bring into stark relief the functioning of the uni(multi?)verse and present it to us in an unbiased, unabashed, and easily understandable manner. So, in closing, I would like to thank you for providing this unparalleled opportunity to others that will help humanity broaden its vision to match the broadening horizons. As this will provide humanity with a great service to become more, to increase us all as a species. As well, I would thank you gracefully to consider including this young man in your considered passenger list. Thank you, A citizen of Earth

LightningShock : I'm sorry to tell you, Cody, but I doubt you and the youtubers you interact with can be considered artists just because you are youtubers. You are people who do science and make educational videos, not people who make artistic films. Don't get me wrong, I would like to see you go to the moon, but that project seems to be for artists only, and that, in my opinion, sucks. Perhaps there would be such missions in the future but dedicated for scientist as well, and if you choose to go on this one you would miss the chance to go to those and do actual good-quality experiments. Anyway, I wish you the best of luck, and you will have my support!

MrRolnicek : As much as I want you to go ... I think Tim Dodd the Everyday Astronaut (that's the guy who was at the announcment and asked the only good question) is a better choice here in terms of YouTubers. Besides YouTube he is also a photographer and he makes his own music, he's a more well rounded artist than most. Still would vote you for the first person to set foot on Mars, no contest.

Darren Green : Plenty of YouTubers that should go to the moon...and keep on going...

levin : If there's a good chance that the flight is a one way trip, wouldn't that ruin any chance of you going to mars with the mars one project? If I remember you were in the top 100 of candidates which is an amazing achievement!

kendrickeyy : *CODY PLEASE READ THIS* You should make an extremely well-produced video that matches the style of the video he showed during the announcement! Mix in testimonials from as many big YouTuber's as you can that say you'd be the best artist from the platform for the job! This would appeal to him to such a degree, as I'm sure you could tell by seeing how he presented himself. Go all out and hire someone to produce the video, preferably another YouTuber, that is known for making videos that are on par with Hollywood-quality projects. As much as we all know that you'd be the best "YouTuber" to go on the mission, I think the only artists that will catch his eye are of the modern, sleek, and showy aesthetic. GO FOR IT!!

Ryan Kindt : The youtubers that are artists don't use clickbait.

kadin holt : I’d totally vote to send you. Your videos are amazing and I’d love to see what you put out!

station240 : Yeah, you and Amy Shira Teitel (VIntage Space) are the only youtubers I know crazy enough to actually cope in space.

Shrike : well "Artist" is not a protected title ... everybody is an artist. like everybody bleeds red. if you want to go to the moon fine with me.

Cmac : Let's send Cody to space and see what he brings back..

Dan Dank : To the moon!!!1!!one1!!1

adamklam1 : what about your special lady, she'll be sad won't she?! but otherwise, yea I'd say you're an artist sure. where do we vote?

CrazyBeef : Cody, you should start loosing weight so you could take more stuff with you on the ship. And i sent a tweet to him about you :)

Somedude Thatscool : Lol shots FIRED!!!

Justin West : Vsauce final answer

hddog99 : Cody: An artist of film and science!

Stonedude123 : Wow that's incredible! When will your video on making a gold play button come out?
