"Be talking about the incredible chasing the sun how the science of some light shapes our bodies and our minds so how did you get interested in astronomy and physics and all this well George it goes way back to my childhood but maybe that doesn't surprise anyone no not at all we all did that yeah I think everybody does and I think that is somewhere between eight and eleven some switches get set in your brain and you become interested in something and I you know I build a telescope by age ten or eleven was trying to pick take photos of Jupiter's moons through it not very successfully but the. yeah I was interested I want to you know planetariums alive read aloud books text that sort of thing did you ever think your your application would end up being this no I I can't say that I did but I I I I again I think that that's a rather Clinton in response to that question I mean most people say well I never imagined doing this even ten years ago that is that by the way to work I I I do need to say something here to avoid a slew of abusive emails tomorrow I screwed up when I talked about Xena reticulate being yeah very young I wonder I knew you did me in a million years all right out of the Pleiades you see are are quite young you know they they they might be less in a million years in the plan to be a billion years where some aliens have come from but they reticulate you know that system is maybe two billion years old for that old enough and I'm sure now that we observed it when we were doing our observations down with the telescope in Austria you can only see from the southern hemisphere there's there's a tribe called the Dogon tribe you've heard of them yes I have and they knew about the binary star system and in the serious our system and way before even telescope spotted this are they claim that they were told from someone above about the star system that would be another area I think you aim the array at. well I have to say it was Sirius is the actually is a very bright star so it it really is going to last very long but it'd be the Dogon story about you know the fact that it has a companion and she has two companions that's a complaining that the white dwarf they wouldn't have known that that's true that wasn't discovered until I think the Victorian here when people have bigger telescopes but it's also the case that this story originated after the discovery of that white dwarf and apparently there's some evidence I don't know whether it's credible or not yet they were told about it having a second star. what do you think a Roswell that case well I think it's the best thing that ever happened to Roswell yeah that's true that's for sure no I you know that I I I sort of hesitate to make my opinion known here because of course Stan Friedman was the you know great proponent of all my god yeah that that Roswell representative sailed landing attempt by aliens trying to get a good tex mex muse meal in in New Mexico but you know. I I don't know I would. I I look at that story and I consider the fact that project mogul was running at the same time for which there is still I think living witness witnesses to what project mogul was all about it was a you know a secret airforce project to try and find out if the Soviets had the bomb at the end of the nineteen forties and it accounts for all the aspects of the Roswell story so here you have it I mean it could be a secret project to find out if the alien society to Soviet said the bomb or could be aliens a crash landed in the desert forty miles north northwest of Roswell I tend to believe the first explanation and when they are there anybody with then said he that believes we've been visited from eighties well then you know I certainly haven't paying them all on it but I would wager and next week's wages which isn't much to wager. that none of them do now none okay and let me ask you this horrible question and that is if you don't get funding for study what happens well I mean it is essentially does away I mean it's it's that simple of nobody's willing is that a is that a real possibility of course it's impossible yes No Way Out it's it's hard to believe but it's it's true and I might point out that you look at Europe for example or for that matter Japan China all these places they they talk a good game they say they're all interested in doing city because they all admit that a discovery would be very very interesting and perhaps even important. but they're not willing to pony up the the money I lived in Europe for thirteen years and you know they had they had the began tennis they had the money they had the talent they had the expertise they could do it but they didn't and the reason they gave for that was well you know it's it we're we're too serious for that so that's unfortunate but on the other hand I think it speaks to the fact that in America you can take a long shot and you know Americans are willing to bet on the dark horse and that's not so true in these other countries. cancer. well I don't know it's the I I would hate to see said he go away well I I do too I mean I don't know that will never go away because it's always going to be somebody somewhere the fight is interesting because keep in mind that said he is not a static endeavors not that what we're doing today is the same with that we would have done ten years ago it's always getting better because the equipment keeps getting better. can somebody get to Jeff Bezos. well little our check yeah well and I don't know the guy personally do you know I don't know him I'm a good customer of it yeah well. like this defendant basis and he does have an interest in this sort of thing I mean you need to find somebody who is interested right and you know I'm I mentioned the the you know that chief technologist ten o'clock on he is interested in this matter so he's willing to fund the development of new receivers well okay that that's what it takes somebody than just having money is not good enough and you can ask anybody who's looking for money for something they also have to have a personal interest in the subject. let's take some calls here for you this hour since self though let's go to mark in Baltimore Maryland to get things started Hey mark go ahead Sir thank you George to take my phone call thank you our own by the way you know I'd be willing to donate if the doctor wants to give out any information on how to donate women I'm not rich or anything but you know I'm willing to donate because you mentioned donations before I also here's my here's my question okay I actually have to once a simple yes or no question my first question is to the doctor do you know how small an object and we're at is capable of detecting because I was in rate or man in the navy so that's my first question and my second one is just a yes or no when that is to set I operate under any kind of secrecy oath yeah well beyond it in into the second one is is the easy one mark and no we don't there's there's I mean look it is a is a nonprofit research organization there's no policy of secrecy nobody is ever been told Hey if you find a single don't tell anybody and in fact we've had some false alarms and you know they demonstrated what really happens if you find a signal that looks promising that media start calling you up right away and you talk to them as it first question to get repeat the first question I'm sorry to waste your time by doing that no you're not wasting my time at all doctor it was I was no radar man in the navy yeah learn about rec NORAD and everything like that I think that's something that stands for north of America something about that that how they do you know how small or large of an object that NORAD is capable of detecting well of course you know the the real idea was to detect incoming missiles and something you know is is stuff like that but if you consider the radars being used today for example the maps space junk which is important to do because otherwise you know of the international space station collide with something the size of a tennis ball then that's the end of the international space station so they they do want to map. the stuff and that's typically a couple hundred miles up and normally they can find anything down to the size of depends on the the day of the week or you know the the wind direction whatever but they they can find things between the size of the ping pong ball and maybe of baseball that's dramatic that's pretty incredible incident. there really is what do you think the next big break throughs gonna come remember the old wow signal yeah sure in the these little bursts that are coming in now these fast radio burst is that equivalent to the while or was the wild. radio burst don't have the characteristics of a signal made by a transmitter they really don't and so I I don't think that their equipment and the fact that they were being found all over the sky I think the more could lead to the discovery of pulsars back in the nineteen sixties you know that we're called little green men Cambridge astronomers for awhile until they found three of them and when they found three of them at different spots on this guy they said well whatever this is its nature it's not intelligence so they stop calling the little green men and eventually call them pulsars and I think the same thing will happen with the fast reimburses I said earlier I think that within a couple years there's enough there are enough data now that I think within a couple of years some clever he retention to kind of figure out what the most likely explanation is we have a gland in Harding's in the Texas welcome to the program Hagelin go ahead. Hey how you doing George set yes Greek. say set their Preciado everything you do but I'm I'm reminded as that of a cartoon I saw that white saucer asked why you would give the LA you guys pulling data Lafayette in trade radio. no no I I really appreciate your and that but you you mentioned that yeah there were a lot of stars close it and and they all have plates to I find that fascinating out to what about a dozen light years we've got about thirty years so stars something like that usually a couple several of them were found to have Goldilocks planet and maybe even a couple one of them had a couple of it in the Goldilocks zone I find that incredible so and I guess that I guess that means they're pretty much Jack search all the closest planets could you comment on that but but one thing before you do set so that I think that. the idea of it yeah they can't get here we can't go there you know if you're traveling at relativistic speeds that relativistic speeds that ships tightened I mean it's it's not you don't have to go faster than light the distances are are all easily traversed my goodness what is it orange is it forty light years and three months. I think so yeah well if you go forty my hot like years and three months you got a pretty fast vehicle there sure yeah what eight you're pushing it to the point where you're not you know stand out in your constitutional Adam GOP he didn't you know become particles of light Magnotta what won't kill you and other words just below the ask the kill threshold aghast at speed but could you comment on that the closest planet and your search at that have you all will be scrutinized as we close in planet close it starts with well you know we haven't we haven't because on the one hand we've looked at the essentially all the nearby star systems and I think nearby.

How many watch all for crops out nobody okay? I think I know what America's biggest problem is now. Overcrowding. There was twenty liberals. Onstage FOX, Fox News called it Kami con. But the debates, of course we're held in Miami. So for an old Jew, like Bernie Sanders it was a home game. And it started out strong burnt Bernie promised healthcare for everybody. And after what Kamala Harris did to Joe Biden Joe needed it. Jio definitely got his bell rung a little bit. It didn't he? I mean by the second hour he was sniffing his own hair that was very. Very. Luckily, Marianne Williamson broader. Rotary healing crystals. You know, always the last show before they start to lose it. I'll be lucky but I thought it was really interesting that this is I thought Joe is actually worth moment. They went around, and they asked, what would be your first act as president and Biden said to defeat Donald Trump? That's when the kids came onstage and took away his driver's license. First of all, I want to say. I always come out against ageism, but before it's yoyo hypocritically do old jokes. Yes. I do money joke because ageism does not mean everything old people does is okay. It means judge people individually by who they are. And how they acted. I'm sorry. It's a case by case basis. Some people do look good at Joe's eight. He didn't look good last night.

"adam gop" Discussed on WNYC 93.9 FM
"It's very Lehrer show. WNYC. Good morning, everyone. With me knows New Yorker staff writer, Adam got Nick who decides countless interesting articles for the magazine. He was just reminding me that the last time he was on. We were talking about his piece on learning to drive in middle age. But he's also in many diverse and intriguing books from his one in two thousand called Paris to the moon about as experiences in Merican living in pass to through the children's gate in two thousand six about falling love with New York all over again after moving back from his five years in France to angels ages short book about Darwin, Lincoln and modern life in two thousand nine to twenty seventeen book at the strangers gate about arrivals to New York, and now comes a thousand small sanitize the moral adventure of liberalism, and don't get lulled into complacency by the title. This book takes us much aim at the illiberal left. As frame as the illiberal. Right. Thanks for coming on animal comeback. WNYC always a pleasure to be here. And you open this book with a story about you and your daughter Olivia, then seventeen years old on the morning after Trump was elected president, but don't go right to Trump. You introduce Livia as intelligently skeptical of all progressive pieties, especially her father's, can you set that scene force. I what are some of your liberal pieties, or just one, good example, that your daughter grew up to be intelligently skeptical about I'm nothing but Thala g of Progressive Party. So I don't already one that she would be be skeptical. I guess my the urge to see two sides of every issue, you know, insisting that, you know, there's no board so thin that it doesn't have to sides. She can be impatient with the times because I think she rightly thinks that it's it can act as a stopper in some way. So she's impatient with that progressive. You get stuck and able to act. If you're seeing two sides of the issues, and there is an old joke about liberalism. I don't know if it's in your book, that the definition of liberal is somebody who won't take his own side, and I'll give it absolutely it isn't it is in the book, actually, and one of these wanted to write this book, Brian was to say to her that ain't so that you can have a vision of liberalism. In fact, the right vision of liberalism is as a movement crusade for radical change, but always through humane measures and this book, then is kind of a letter to your daughter, totally. Well, I also kind of distillation of thirty years of thinking about liberal writers and actors, but yes, it's a letter to my daughter about liberal humanism. You actually take a shot at defining liberalism in this book on page twenty three. Would you read it for our listeners? Yes. Of course. So here I am struggling to say, what makes liberalism is. I understand different from right wing were left wing causes. And I wrote. Liberalism is involving political practice. That makes the case for the necessity and possibility of imperfectly, again, -tarian social reform, and ever-greater, if not absolute tolerance of human difference through reason, and mostly unimpeded conversation demonstration and debate. And then I say instantly that this is probably the worst sentence I've ever written. It's an infuriating sentence, because I think it captures all of the nuances and qualifications all of the rhetorical squishing of liberalism. The, you know, Marxist revolutionaries says I am for freeing men from his chains and a Christian. Authoritarian says I am for faith and flag. And the liberal says, I'm for being nice to everyone is we realistically can be given circumstances. Right. And this in practical, political terms has been a big problem for the liberal party in this country, the Democratic Party, because they come out with things like that, to some degree. While the Republicans turn around and say, I'm for a free market family values and the flag. Absolutely. And it works the other way it works. You know, the rights tack on the left left attack on liberalism. One of the things that's always been true Bryant's one of the themes of this book. Is that liberalism, always looks hopelessly at any moment of crisis liberalism? Always look, hopelessly swish e week, confused and so- pluralistic. And so many side is to be ineffectual. But historically whenever there's been a real crisis. You know, you think about the nineteen thirties, almost all intellectually, minded people in that period, said, liberal democracy is finished liberal humane values are relic, and they went either towards the extreme left, or they went towards the extreme right? And at the end of the day, by the time the second World War was over seemed just the opposite, it seem that the values of an open society that liberalism in capsulated were not just persuasive, but we're also extremely potent and powerful and that I think has happened again. And again and again and I'm trying. Reinfuse reinfuse liberalism, in the liberal, and liberal, people with a, a more. What's the right word slightly more pugnacious view of their of our inheritance than we might have sometimes but of the three basic chapters in the book. After the one that just defines liberalism. The other two are why the right hates liberalism, and why the left hates liberals. Absolutely. So I think what's newsworthy from your book, is that you Adam GOP Nick are going after the left as a threat to what you've value in liberalism as much as you're going after the right. Absolutely. That's historically. It's always been that way, you know, liberalism, liberal left. I'm a liberal leftist liberal leftists have always been in dispute with radical leftists just as they've been in dispute with right wing -tarian. That's been the traditional liberalist. Well, that might have been true in Stalinist Russia, but is it really true in America today? Well, I think that the threat from the left to liberal values is trivial in America today compared to the threat from the right every day. We have a government in power. That is a right wing authoritarian government that is attacking liberal values and the basis of liberal democracy every single day. We are in a national emergency, so I would never want to balance the attack from the right which is daily and fundamental claim down Bryant. We're so inured by now to each day's atrocity that we sort of begin to shrug it off. With say that's not so bad, when Donald Trump talks about pardoning worker models in the in the army, this is an act of affront to every decent soldier who live by the code of conduct. That's one of the stories just from the left few days, that, that were, you know, in this constant blizzard of news. And what so many of us around here, consider, you know, the New York area, consider outrages that, that one hasn't even most people's consciousness and yet, it's one of the gravest because not only is it evil in itself. But it also implies Trump using his powers to create an effect his own Pretoria guard. Now, if you're loyal to the president, you can do anything you want. It's, it's. Horrible. Don't get me started on the on the obscenities, and the and the emergency that we're in. Right. But you wrote eighty pages or so. The left. Right. Because the left has been vociferiously critical of liberalism, historically, and to this day, still is plenty of people, I'm sure we both know them and debate them, and you have them on the show, who say from the left you say, liberalism is inadequate to this moment. We've got the global global climate change crisis. We've got the crisis of inequality. We've got a larger economic crisis. We only have to look around New York City to see the housing crisis cetera et cetera. Those with views that motivated, Occupy Wall street continued to do so, but what are you saying is the green new deal is Medicare for all know liberalism? I'm proud is a Canadian came to New York that I have been arguing for Medicare for all Canadian model for medicine since nineteen eighty-seven wrote the first piece in the New Yorker about it than a debate with. Welcome. Glad well in nineteen ninety nine where I took the socialized medicine side. Malcolm took the private medicine side. He's since converted back to Canadian view. My point is I believe in all those things passionately. The question is, how do you go about making those things plausible. How do you bring them into the realm of the plausible? The liberal view is always, you do it through as I said, in that terribly awkward sentence through the relentless pursuit of public argument and debate and change, you know, buyer Buston, the great black and gay activist is one of the heroes of this book said, three simple liberal dance steps, constitutional measures nonviolent means democratic procedures. That's the core. Those are the core practical beliefs of liberalism, and they have worked to make radical social change again. And again, the alternative is not to simply say, let's seize power and make these changes because the one thing we learned is when you take power, there is always an employer list, society going to be descent. Sometimes vehement dissent, sometimes even violent send the question is not what we want. But how we deal with those who don't want the same things that we do. We saw that in France. Brian, I still try and stay tuned in France. President Macron brought in a very powerful green new deal for France that involved as any green new deal will have to gasoline hikes tax gasoline, and it started a national revolt, not among the, you know, the bosses, but among workers rural working class people, you're going to have to intimidate and you're gonna have to see how you're gonna placate. You're going to have to understand that you're gonna build coalitions that make that change possible. That's what liberalism says my guest is Adam got Nick, who's new book is a thousand small Saturday's the moral adventure of liberalism or phones. Roping for you to question talk back to him. Give us your own, too. Many words definition of liberal two one, two, four, three three WNYC, four three, three nine six nine to just to finish the thought that you were just on who is it that you're afraid of taking power. In illiberal ways in pursuit of liberal policies that you support is it bony. Sanders. Is it L? Exander Cossio who, who are these who who's actually threatening to do that, in a practical sense in America today? They don't think I don't think anyone actually is. And that's why I'm more concerned as I said before there is a right wing authoritarian in power. But this book is not a book about contemporary politics. It's a book about fundamental premises book about values and it's a book about trying to defend the values of liberal humanism as I understand them against the historic tax on them. Is there anybody on hand who's likely to do that from the from the left to actually working? No, I will add, though, Brian that it is always a weakness of the left in this includes as we as we all know people on enthusiasts Bernie Sanders. I've Bernie Sanders jokes in the in the book, but the habit of intolerance, the habit of believing that because you are right. Right. Therefore people. Disagree with you must be on the payroll of some corporation. Or must be acting merely as stalking horses for capital. That's an old left-wing habit. And I think you still see peaking up, and that's a bad one. That's, that's essentially intolerant. The problem always is. I don't watch game of thrones the finale last night, Brian. I bet you this very elegant. No spoilers, though. Tyrian Lancaster, those wise IMP. The dwarf says to deniro star Garin, who says I want to remake the world, and who cares if we use my drag into destroy all cities in the end the world will be much better. And he says, you know, I'm not so sure that I can believe that because I've just seen what happened here makes you had burned up the city. That's the classic liberal response to leftist utopianism. So dragons are one thing when we come back from the break, you can describe while you're described, you can discuss while you're describe liberalism, as a rock rhinoceros absolutely in competing philosophies as unicorns. And we'll take some phone calls for Adam got Nick, stay with us rate.
