Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'source' of undefined

I found that some of the wiki data returned was for 'disambiguation' pages, e.g. the name refers to multiple pages, so the generateHTML function was failing with the above error.

There will be a better solution but to complete the exercise I skipped these astronauts with a conditional (person.type != 'disambiguation').

// Generate the markup for each profile function generateHTML(data) { data.map( person => { if (person.type != 'disambiguation') { const section = document.createElement('section'); peopleList.appendChild(section); section.innerHTML = <img src=${person.thumbnail.source}> <span>${person.craft}</span> <h2>${person.title}</h2> <p>${person.description}</p> <p>${person.extract}</p> ; } }) }

Tip: If you post using the "get help" button on a course page, it should get a link button to that page, but more importantly it will appear on that page's "questions" tab. This will make your message much easier for students to find.
