Phil Specter, Zach, Gus Grissom discussed on Leo Laporte


Enough people get, too had the second crude Mercury flight, Gus Grissom's capsule. That they had pulled out by the Atlantic and restored But because one of your loyal uh, followers asked about it. Shall we talk about the SLS? Yeah, That's another topic. Of course, that's a little more timely. Um NASA is attempting to put people back on the moon, I guess, And this is a rocket that is designed to launch That moon mission. First of all, When would that be? What is their target for that? Well, the hope was to have the first crew and the first woman on the moon in 2024% of the Trump administration tried to accelerate things. No. You know, you have to build the E V a suits. We haven't done any of those since the sixties. There's a lot of things they're still remember so that Zach from the space station, they wanted to do the first all female space. What, but they didn't have enough suits that fit women. For for the women to go out there. They didn't put her. Yeah, yeah, And there was some human cry about that, but but they asked not herself came out and said, Look, it was just a matter of what components we had up there because most these things are between chain 25 years old. Yeah, Amazing. And they've only got a limited supply. And they didn't have all of them up there. But they did rectify that. So they were testing based watch system SLS. They were testing it and shut it down, didn't they? Yes, I was supposed to be. There's a syriza of different tests during what they call the green run phase. This was a live fire test of the engine's supposed to run for a full eight minutes, which simulates the full ride into orbit. That includes a lot of things you know, powering up on then the full run different throttle settings and critically gambling the engines because the Gimbels the the engines air on pivot so they could steer the rocket. And you want to test that under power right? Because you want to make sure this address job instead of property and bets. A lot of the stress is a lot of torque. So it quit after one minute and all we know at this point is that there is an M C. F a major component failure. Thies things happened, which sounds like put this inverse. Well, they do. And you know, it sounds like a turbo blowing up because those those terms these are old space shuttle engines. So these air not now he probably intended to 20 years old. They've been reconditioned to check, you know, but They're older engines. Those those turbos spin up. I think one of those spends up to like 70,000 rpm almost instantly. So it's a lot to test so right pile got to get his book. First on the moon. The Apollo 11 50th anniversary. Leo report, Detective Jf. I am 6 40. People are in denial. We're so focused on where we've been over the past 10 years that were refusing to believe that things are actually getting Better were fixated in the past, and we're fearful of what might happen.

If you're headed on the water one north Fl Bo, we got a motorcycle wreck. Still taking away those two right lanes? You're seeing heavy delays from the 405 in Pasadena. Problem Continuing here to Tennessee State. Rosemead CHP clearing large degrees from the three right lanes is a tough job for Madre Street. Baskas rocks, 14 orthodox riddles, they canyon road. We got the stalled car taken away the slow lane. They find this guy helps get to their bastard. I'm short of a culture. Wow. I think we can all agree that a lot went wrong in 2020.
