Feedback on this course
Quick bit of feedback - I've found this whole section really hard to follow as some of the spellings of the astronauts in space from open-notify are (as of May 2020) spelt differently to their Wikipedia profiles. I have enough prior knowledge to "get" whats happening, but having your code fail due to Wikipedia not finding the requested astronaut isn't great. Could you re-make this course with an example which is less likely to fail? You could host some static json files which would do the same thing and would be guaranteed to work, for example.

I totally agree...I've rewatched many of the videos in this course multiple times and I still am not understanding it in the least.

Yeah it's a little ridiculous that I have to keep resorting to the comment section on how to improve the broken code given by the instructor
I will do the rest of the course and then go back from the start. Very disappointed, if anyone can suggest any other courses that are better I would be very grateful.
OK, no prob. In that case would advise making sure you get the essential content from the JS Stack - loops, arrays and objects (Guil's new courses on these are good). Once you have that down, definitely look at the freeCodeCamp or similar API projects - you learn so much by tinkering around and building something for yourself!
