He is one among 23 lucky recruits out of more than 20,000 applicants, to fly into outer space on 2015. Daniel "Chino" Roque, a 22 year old psychology graduate from La Salle bested more than 20,000 applicants including two fellow Pinoys. He is scheduled to fly outer space next year, but the plan has changed after NASA released a report about a shocking discovery concerning Metro Manila. NASA on late October reported that half of Manila could be gone in 50 years. Climate change, too much garbage, over population, and over industrialization are among the reasons why Metro Manila’s land couldn’t hold its heavy load anymore.
