Science? Religion? Tardigrades? 42? Our piece received so much feedback that we had to ask Mike to respond to some of the most interesting, bizarre, and controversial comments.

"The First Animal to Survive in Space" struck a chord with the internet. Often, we here at Motherboard are not ever sure of why something pieces sail into the stratosphere while others remain cast away like an old teddy bear prize at Coney Island. With 9 million views and counting and over 20,000 comments Motherboard thought it behoved us to go down to Virginia once more and talk to the now internet-famous Mike Shaw. Out of the 20,000 comments there was a prevalent theme, the clash between the religious and the agonistic. Science vs. Faith. Mike Shaw contemplated this at national park in Virginia. He mused that science and religion both of a place in this video, that "religion tells us the why, science tells us the how." Mike spoke to these deep philosophical issues while still maintaining his wry sense of humor when it comes to often audacious YouTube commenters. Check out Motherboard's respond video here.
