Hello @Mi-Amigo 

Bit more "up my street" these questions. I use Ghee as I like to cook Indian cuisine.  I like Mythology a lot, doesn't mean I know everything unfortunately.  Nasa spacecraft is not good for me.  The Words are interesting probably guesses there. Bye for now.

Interesting mix of questions @Mi-Amigo 😁

I'm happy with the words and history. Space will be my downfall. I know one and the other will be a guess.
