Well, now we are beginning to gang up on our CEO.

Surely he cannot keep up this standard of flying for much longer? Unless of course some opinions are correct and he is really an alien... I doubt this as I know he has a human side. His wife Yasemin was here at mission control until yesterday evening when their daughter Elâ arrived. So it seems that his family has to take shifts in looking after him?

Bertrand's 5 minutes period was just at a point when we woke him after just 5 minutes to simulate an emergency condition.
