"Iraq on I 90 is Adrian Crawford and she joins us now. Good morning, Adrian. Good morning. Thank you so much for joining us. I read about your experience on Facebook. And I wanted you to share this with our listeners. Please take us back to last Sunday. Who were you with? And where were you going? Yeah. Yeah, Actually, I was with my brother Sam, who was driving his car. Um, my friends. Lonnie was in the back seat. We had gun crabbing for I don't know, Maybe, like seven or eight hours in Ballard and we were actually driving back home to Mercer Island. Um, crossing what we were about to cross the 90 Bridge coming from Seattle, so there's a tunnel. And then there is a the bridge goes out over the water right after that, And basically we I was looking down, Um, playing Pokemon. Go. Actually, I was looking down at my phone looking down to the right. Um, Luckily, my head was turned. I was kind of slouch down, and I was looking at the right because had I been looking forward, I probably would be dead right now or, you know, severely Figured, but pretty much. What it seemed like to us was. You know we're just driving along talking. And then all of a sudden we hear what we saw was an explosion at first. Um You know, it really sounded like one. Um, but the explosion came. It all happened in the matter of like, you know, split second, but The explosion came with Really horrible came in a Left side of my head. And then I realized that I couldn't move my left arm. Um, my shoulder felt Bust. I don't know. I thought it was pulverized. I wasn't really sure what happened, But we looked up and we saw there's a giant hole in the windshield. And my brother and my friend were super confused until I started saying I think my shoulders broken. I was hurt and hit in the head. I think somebody like something went through the windshield. My brother couldn't pull over safely. So because we were like in a tunnel and then on the bridge, So we went across, and I called 911 for myself because my Friends phone throws Um So I called 911. I told him, you know, I see. We all stayed pretty calm. My brother didn't swear or anything. Um And then I'm sorry. Were you saying something I didn't want to eat. No, no, no. Are you trying to do something? No, No, no, no. Go ahead. Go ahead, okay? Okay, well, yeah. So Sorry. Well, how about the rock? It's alright. How big was the rock compared to take us to that part of it? It wasn't like size of a football basketball. How big was the run? So it was bigger than a softball. Um You know big enough to kill you because of basketball, but, you know You're going 60 65 Miles an hour and Iraq's following what? Like 30 40 ft off an overpass into your head directly. It's Dick. Very large rock, but I mean, we were surprisingly found the empty church on the rock and the You know, in the foot wells where I was sitting, you know, we were covered in glass. I kind of wasn't sure. Honestly, I was like, Well, I don't know if my brain is bleeding out. I don't know if I have a few minutes left. You know, I called my husband after nine or one. Obviously, he was freaking out. Um I kind of actually started to go into shock. Um, the E M T said You know, there was a lot of We thought, like convulsing, like really, really bad memories from the shock and it's been, um It's hard to stay focused because you know I had to move myself from the structure. And the E and he's sorry I look sick. I'm like breathing in my house right now. Is that the so I'm like shaking a little bit, But, um The MPs said. You know, I heard them saying she's going into shock need to put a neck brace. We don't know if you broke her neck, but they couldn't because I was covered in glass. I'd lost in my mouth and my eyes and My legs are cut up. Um, so they weren't able to put one on but I was transported via ambulance. My husband inside and went over leak. Unfortunately, there's over, like is super packed right now. So it took quite a while before I not care. But I'm still alive. Yeah, Adrian, I'm thankful that you're alive. But it is really a scary experience. And it could have been so much work as worse as you described, Can you Talk about how you felt when you realized wait a minute, and you were trying to get the word out that this has been happening. Um So I heard like I had heard stories of this happening in Other places. Um, yeah, like I'm not going to lie. I hadn't actually being I hadn't heard about You know all of these. What? Almost 200 incidences now that have been happening here like now, Um, so that's why I like when it happened, I realized Like what was happening to me. I was like, Okay, Somebody did this. I might die now. You know, I Yeah, but Kind of a bizarre thing. You know, I don't know if people are going to believe this, but I For like the past several months. I've been having these really weird specific images every time I get in the car of something crashing through the windshield. And you're dying like it's the weirdest thing. And like this is strange, strange feeling. So when it happened, I was like, okay, and that's a weird coincidence. And I'm probably going to die now. But you know, I was surprised to hear To answer your question that it didn't happening here so much and not everybody is aware of it. Which is exactly why I'm Adamant about not being quiet about it. That's why I wanted my Facebook post to be shared. And why I'm you know, agreeing to talk to you. And I didn't interview yesterday with King. Five, um I'm not sure if you're aware. Yeah, well, we appreciate you sharing the word and and your your story is Really harrowing. What is your so it sounds like you will recover, But But I know that you were frustrated enough. And you were talking about a potential legal case. Is it at that point for you? So my husband and I are still You know, kind of discussing that. I can't say either way. What's going to go on with that? I don't want to kind of jumped the gun there, so we're not exactly sure what's going to happen. My whole point, though, is if if there is some sort of legal case, my point of the case is I really, you know, I try to stay out of political anything in general because we all know that's You know, a huge method is complicated and controversial and all that, but My whole point with this is that I think more really, really needs to be done about this because people do not realize that every single one of us who's driving in Seattle right now. Didn't randomly just be murdered while driving for no reason by a stranger. And this is affecting everybody. This is not just me, not just, you know, the hundreds of people that have been hit so far, and however many people that have been injured like me. You know, it doesn't matter of time before somebody is killed and that can be literally any of us could knew it could be It doesn't matter. You know all of the political like race tax bracket. None of that stuff matters. If you are on the highway, you can just die randomly, So I think pressure needs to be put on. You know?.

"The SEC. Big 10 Challenge tonight. Incidentally, it's 15 minutes to tip off. Presented by Geico 15 minutes could save you 15% or more on car insurance. Well, Erica's We get set to see this basketball game tonight. We've already talked about how big Florida stay here because they are big and long. That said they have only played one game and that one game. Of course they won by 20. Indiana's played four games to this point, so they have an advantage there. I agree. I think the experience Indiana got in the Maui Invitational is just absolutely huge. The Hoosiers know what they need to work on that one game that Indiana struggled against Texas. Hoosiers really struggled to finish under the rim against size and athleticism. And out beyond the three point line. Texas Guards got into Indiana's dribblers and Hoosiers had trouble running their sets in tonight's game. That's exactly what Indiana is going to face size and athleticism and a defense of team in Florida State That's gonna press you try to get in passing lanes. And play a very aggressive and I think for Indiana to take that Texas game learn from their mistakes, I think is a huge advantage here compared to the fact that Florida State's only played one game, and it's against the team that they easily beat. Right. So for Indiana, you gotta learn from your mistakes. You've got to get better and improve as a team. And tonight's gonna be a big test for this Indiana basketball team. Whether or not they could play against that type of defense that will see here tonight from Florida State. Florida State has a freshman point guard it 69 £227. Pounds from West Palm Beach, Florida by the name of Scottie Barnes. He was one of the top five or six players in the country coming out of high school last year. He already has Eight point ballgame under his belt, six rebounds, six assists. And you heard Adrian Crawford say he's 88 Nate guy for sure. And almost every ball game. It's not good to hear. If you're in Indiana fan I believe they also made the comedy didn't play well isn't had eight points, six rebounds, six assists. Oh, man for Indiana. It's gonna be very important. This Florida State team they like to rebound. The guards come in and try to get offensive rebounds when you've got a guy that 6 FT nine handling the basketball Keeping Scotty Bones out beyond the three point line, I think is gonna be very important for this Indiana defense. I think if Barnes is using his size and athleticism to make plays, even if he's missing shots if he's getting inside the paint, he can affect this game and after really both ends but specifically making place for other scoring the basketball and just using that 6 FT nine point guard frame, I guess. Feels like Florida State's got like Walt Disney World Signs everywhere that says, You have to be this tall to play like everybody's at least 67 on this Florida State team, and it's gonna be one of the bigger, more athletic teams that India is going to play this season. There's no doubt why Florida State so good. Leonard Hamilton sent a great job. Indian has got to be prepared for really tough call going. I've got to bring this up now because it's important to what we've been talking about. In the sense of Indiana's roster tonight, Keys to the game. I should say the injury report is brought to you by Indiana University. Who wants to remind you that you could make a real difference during the pandemic by wearing a mask in public, you're helping to protect.

"And we would like to thank those of you. Who ARE CHIPPING IN TO TO CAPE. This podcast alive and well. We greatly appreciate your support. Now Fred let's move onto the next topic of interest in this. One is very interesting too because this dates back twenty years when Galileo was hanging around Jupiter touring the fat taking a few peaks and they did take photographs of Europa the ice moon but he we had twenty years or thereabouts and bring analyzed some of the dot because you know the photographic technology Today's much more advanced and I'm guessing while La they've come up with a little bit more detail about this amazing little world indeed that so. This is not accidental. You know it's not just people saying oh we're going to have another look those from from from. Galileo this is all about preparing for the next mission to Jupiter Jupiter moons. There is one called Europa. A clipper which I think is now approved a check that within the next few years there's another mission called juice that you could try see moons probe which I think he's also a on the still love the night that one right Rossi Moods so these missions that will give us much more detail about the moons and of course as as as well known in the relates. The question that we're going to talk about in a few minutes Europa is one of the moons of the Outer Solar System that has the structure without a rocky call liquid water ocean over the top of it and then over the top of that a solid ice crossed European is special in. The ice crust is probably one of the youngest surfaces in the entire solar system. Fates estimated to be between forty ninety million years old. Now let sounds like a long time but That for planetary surface of the surface of a worldwide Europe is very young the cratered surface of the moon for example the southern hemisphere at the move which is heavily cratered is more like three to four while more like three point. Eight to four point four point two billion years old it dates from Italian when objects were hurling through the solar system pushing into everything. What is called the light headed bombardment? So the surface of Europa is not at all in fact there is there are no discernible crisis on it. But what there are is the markings. And the the classic. A Galileo spacecraft images from nineteen ninety-eight show these basically the show a surface that is crisscrossed by Brownish markings many of them very linnea and those markings in the original images. It's not really possible to distinguish what you're saying. They just look like Brown markings now. That Brown A still to be what happens when you've got a briny liquid likely almost like seawater filtering through the ocean beneath and then being radiated by the Sun's radiation experiments done a few years ago that showed if you've if you've got water that's rich in salts and minerals anew irradiated with Algebra lies and the kind of particle bombardment we get from the CELANI tons Brown Just like these the streets so the those original images didn't really show much detail and that's why this is such a great story because these what we're talking about today is a re re analysis of those images by a team Actually at NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory led by. I think Planetary Geologists Cynthia Phillips and that is a fantastic project to bring modern computer algorithms to ban on images that we looked at and said great fantastic stuff and then put away for twenty two years and what they've done. They've shown that the terrain on euro per is not just an ice covering with a few black Brown streaks. It's gotten all variations in so The resolutions squat fine revealing things as small as a four hundred and sixty meters across Thereabouts and they are. The detail is now. I think quite staggering is on the Jet Propulsion Laboratory Website there are some of the reprocessed images and there are three different kinds of terrain that have been identified which was really recognized before and I guess the first as what's called the chaos terrain and that sort of tells it like it is It's like just lumps of solid material often colored Brown with which looks just like you've taken a liquid filled. Take a glass bowl. Fill it with ice crystals which kind of an input in the fridge. So they'll partly for he's over and then the stereo up so these these sorry ice cubes rather than ice crystals that they all tumble all around. We've seen something similar. Andrew on on the Dwarf Planet Pluto Light at the EDGE OF SPUTNIK PLATINUM. Does this exactly the same terrain and the mission scientists for the new? Europa projects think this countless chaos terrain on Europa comes about because exactly that that the surface is being fractured a remembering the title forces from the planet itself that pushing and pulling the service and the stuff breaking up into relatively small chunks which are then tipped around just like these ice cubes and giving this Essentially what's called chaos terrain to more different features have been recognized both really interesting on similar in that both long linear features maybe a few kilometers wide few tens of meters high the ridges anyway a few tens of meters high but but thousands of kilometres lung so the two different things on ridges which is where what. I've just explained you've got a long ridge of material Just a few tens of meters there were talking about a hundred meters or so high which a probably brought about when to kind of plight device compressed together and so you get a pushing up of the materials they collide remembering the surface is kind of emotional time dotcom with what they banned rock bands or anything like that but far different color. These are the opposite. These look as though there where two have ice of stretched apart a nicest grown in between them. Because what you've got is a broad region Ten kilometers wide which is very very smooth with the kind of Ridge. The Salad of it so hard to explain these two to these in words. But it's worth having a look at the pictures the A- The the the reprocessed images of Europa which is the buzzwords put into the jet propulsion laboratories website Jpl Go Okay. How big is you riper? It is bigger than me. If I remember rightly it's not the biggest of the Galileo don't have the number of kilometers Off the top of my head. It's very easy to find. The biggest of Galileo's of the moons of Jupiter the biggest moon in the solar system is Johnny made But the but Galileo himself not the space craft the astronomer discovered these full lodge moons Ganymede Europa Kelly stone and you'll is smallest. Ganymede is the biggest so that you are euro Presbyterian Ganymede and the beauty of them. Is that If you've got half decent Pair of binoculars or a half decent telescope you can you can actually say these From your backyard. I think I remember Years and years ago being able to do that because account remember the circumstances but Jupiter must have been in a good position for us to observe and Got Some amazing photos of Of the moons orbiting Jupiter with the NYC at all and. That's just such an amazing thing to be able to save from such vast distance the Coming up To be very favorable now for observing with small telescopes and Benach culas. It's rising lighting evening on the old sort of rise earlier until eventually it's what we call a position where in the sky all night and it's kind of closest but yet binoculars just about show Jupiter Higher Power and which is ten power magnification thereabouts. The problem with those is holding them head to he fix something but they would potentially show you the moons of Jupiter A small telescope is much better an especially face fixed on ella standoff something then you can see you can really see a from tonight. The way these moons change position which of course his what. Galileo Notice Stellian sixteen ten and technocrat among the pigeons because it was clear that not everything rotated around the earth. Yes and didn't he get into trouble for that one? You've got into trouble yet. Okay so we we've reanalysed the daughter and we've might always discoveries and we've got much more data Alabama Europa. I think it would probably be a good idea to just dove tail straight into the question. We have about Iran for Mallusk right Adrian Crawford Adrian Rights Hello Space. I headed question. I didn't now if you want to answer now. We don't want to answer. Anyone is an ocean planet possible. Well we actually tackled that Waco. So we've we've answered the question and I think I remember you saying that the earth was in fact an ocean planet one stage But then he goes on to us. Is it possible that there is ocean life on Europa Jupiter's moon? I was just curious if you guys knew the answer to my questions Just want to say that I really enjoy listening to your podcast. You continue on your own with your awesome work thank you. It's lovely of you to say So Yeah Fred do you. Do you think you right by. I think has been identified as a very potential Candidate for containing life as has enceladus. I think that's right so Yeah I think the answer to the question is yes spit on think. We oughta were elaborated more on that. Yet you're EXC great question and you're absolutely right undoing this perhaps One Euro per is certainly out there among the top two or three candidates for finding living organisms elsewhere in the solar system. The problem is out. You find them. Because if you've got a global ocean with a global ice layer on top which might be twenty thirty kilometers sake. You do have to worry about how you might probed down to find out what's going on first thing you do. Is You rent a space stroller? Selling eight that maybe. A space icebreaker probably the ethical questions. You don't really WanNa go and smash up the Ice Cream Europa. The European pretty. I'm pretty sure I'm remembering correctly. Has shown evidence of plumes of ice coming from the surface. Exactly as we've seen with enceladus the the moon of Jupiter and of course the Cassini spacecraft flew through told us what's in it Revealed all kinds of very intriguing things molecular hydrogen which suggests that the The water has been in contact with geothermal vents at the bottom of this ocean The you know the minerals in it all kinds of organic materials all of which suggests that certainly for enceladus that may be processes in place that would give rise still living organisms in the bottom of the ocean a bit like the the the hydrothermal vents here on Earth. And knowing that you positive very similar structure to tell this is actually near to the sun sets a little bit woma although the surface is still in the minus subject and fifties sixties. The at the does suggest that may be The there is potential Finding living organisms in the oceans of erode and one way of doing that will be to do Kinda what Cassini has done on a Saturday to send a spacecraft or not I think the The Europa Clipper I think is designed to do. They still orbit the Moon. Europa and actually fly through plumes of material being released from Europa's oppose and analyzed that because what you've got there excuse me said free sample of the ocean frozen. It's just ice crystals but if you can analyse those ice crystals you can find out all kinds of things about the environment. They came from a lot of money on on an icebreaker which exactly although remembering my conversation with them Linda Spilka who's the WHO's the Cassini mission scientists. I talked to her last year because she was over to give some talks towards the end of the year She's working on something called. Ales. Which is an enceladus. I'm not sure what it stands for. But it's basically a thing shaped like a snake which is robotic and drop it on the surface of enceladus and he finds its way down. The cracks in enceladus is and has a look in the ocean of relatives to see. What Staubach. Maybe you could do something with Roper. Similar pull it. Yeah so the. I think one of the reasons why people are concentrating on Europa. The moment is much nearer than enceladus. It's a much quicker journey to get from to Jupiter than is to get from us to sunset in so will we might find results coming soon. A- Although of course there are plans to revisit to enceladus in have better as to what's going on to okay it is interesting A you confident that they could be lost in the waters of of Europa. Excuse.

"The fifteen seconds guidance journal Chan nine technician sequence spence nets three to one space bill. Good hello once again. Thank you for joining us on the Space Nets podcast episode two hundred one and thank you to all those people who sent his good wishes about achieving two hundred episodes. The three of you must've listened intently to know that it was as two hundred decide. We we do appreciate the feedback. A few people on various platforms. Santa's some NAS notes joining me as always is professor Fred Watson Astronomer Lodge. Hello Fred I under how you going good to your strident voice again. Thank you sir. Yes good to hear yours too and I hope you will still still in Oscillation assume. Yeah that's right but going well just working from home Carrying on carrying on as you do yes absolutely true and I went. We're starting to say the the rules being relaxed in New South Wales so people are starting to venture out. I think most people being very cautious but a lot of people taking advantage of the opportunity to visit family and friends on a very very limited basis and maintain social distancing et CETERA. But it looks like Whatever we've done to curtail spread of this disease has worked very well in Australia. Which is You know you got to tip you to the authorities. I now. It was a hard sale but most people have taken notice and we've with good selves down to less than a thousand active cases in the country. Now which is just fantastic. Indeed and fingers crossed. That will keep going in that direction. You know thoughts are always with people in other parts of the world where things aren't going anywhere near as well yeah. I was looking at the statistics in the United States. Today and Yeah I'm gobsmacked to be honest I don't WanNa dwell on that but G Some of those States in America really in a bad way at the moment But it's different for every country different rules. Different systems different capabilities seem to really be a factor as well but Here we are doing what we can to try and stem the todd. Now Fred we're going to talk about a quite a few exciting Situations that have arisen One of which We've only been able to talk about now. Because it's been the subject of an embargo and that's the European Southern Observatory's major announcement about blackhall. Now you and I can talk about this Because it's post embargo but this this has been sort of kept top secret wrought up to Wednesday. Not which is been Rather extraordinary and Other Fascinating Yan has to do with the ice moon of Europa which orbits Jupiter and we had a per about they twenty years ago taking Self fees of of your riper in Jupiter and everything else that sort of flights around at the twenty year old data. But now we've been able to use up-to-date technology to take another look at it and I'm guessing they've found some interesting things speaking of Europa. We've had a question from Adrian Crawford has asked a specific question about Europa. So that'll dove tile will and. Monique wants to talk about mining on the moon. The moon spending the news this week. seventy different countries. Certainly want to go back there Trouble with the Moon is nobody owns it and so this is going to turn into a scrum. Reckon so I will allow. We'll look at all those issues today on the spice knots podcast but I this very exciting announcement by the Euro European Southern Observatory about a blackhall. Which as I understand it turns out to be the nearest one to earth and it's not cemeteries I exactly. That's right so I'll say the supermassive black hole at the center of our galaxy. That's twenty five ish thousand light years away. I you know. We sit in the direction of the Constellation Secretaries But it's behind all the Dustin Merck out there but can be detected by radio ways which is why called Sagittarius Star. That's the name of the radio source so this is a different story altogether and it kind of has echoes Andrew. If something we were talking about probably about three or four weeks ago the idea that there might be many black holes out there which don't reveal themselves by anything other than the way they disturb the orbit of Sta's nearby they don't even Chretien disc of swelling materialists plumbing plummeting into them and causing rays and radio waves to miss it. Just quiet Perhaps the technical word black hole sitting there doing nothing but minding their own business but actually having gravitationally effect nearby stars and that is exactly. Excuse me that's exactly what this story is about. It comes from the European Southern Observatory and actually this discovery was not made with one of the John. Eight point two meter telescopes of the the elti. The very large telescope. It's actually one of the smaller ones. A two point to me to tell the scope Lucia which is one of the two main observatory sites at the European Southern Observatory runs in Chile. So strongly was using that telescope. Have been analyzing the motions of a star system which is only a thousand light years away. It's basically a galactic would And you know easy easy to see in fact. This style system can be seen with the naked eye. It's in the Southern Hemisphere Constellation of Telescope. Him The telescope. Which is so. I think it's Scientists in the Czech Republic and the Observatory. Self who've done this this work and the really nice part of the story is the came as a surprise to to the to the investigators. One of the scientists says we were totally surprised when we realized that this is the first Stella System with a black hole that can be seen with the unaided eye on nuts. Yeah that's big news. So what we go he. We've got the STA Whose NAME IS HR. Six eight one nine very elegant name really for it but It's a double style. Okay so that means do a binary system once overseeing another and this program that they scientists working on was a study of double star systems but what they were amazed to find was that the observations demonstrated that this was not just a double style. Not just a binary pag going around their common center of gravity that that is something else in the system and basically one of the two visible styles will be an object that he's not saying every forty days Naturally the second stop at a much greater distance from from this in a pair. So what you? What you've got is a year. We've got this two stars. One of which is orbiting the but the one of them is actually orbiting. Something else as well. That's the invisible so a Another of the CO authors Dietrich Mada who's at So he says the observations needed to determine the period of forty days had to be spread over several months. This was only possible. Thanks TO EASE. Those pioneering service observe escape do which absorb observations in my south on behalf of the scientists meeting. That's a mode of operation that actually many a straw is how country and Australia have used since Three years ago A strategic partner of the European Southern Observatory so not a service mode observing that if you need observations over a long period of time you go and spend two sitting in Zia in northern Chile so yet the local stuff that to do the observations for you. And that's how they said seventy brought that out so the the the the bottom line Andrew is once again. Here's a quote from one of the co-authors invisible object with a massive at least four times that of the sun which is what this had to be It can only be a black hole become anything else and so that is the smoking gun. They always this The new era the style to the black hole of this spinning around once every forty days around something four times as massive as the south has to be a black hole is the nearest and the conclusion is a really interesting one because Let me read the from the ace of a press release if Andrew Strong Have spotted only a couple of dozen black holes in our galaxy today nearly all of which strongly interact with their environment make their presence known by releasing powerful X rays but scientists estimate the over the Milky Wise lifetime many more stars collapsed into black holes as they ended their lives the discovery of a silent invisible black hole in. Hr six eight one nine provides clues about where the many hidden black holes in the Milky Way might be the must be hundreds of millions of black holes out there but we know about the only very few knowing what to look for should put in a better position to find them this. This isn't sorry. Go just to say might be the tip of a very exciting iceberg. This could be the first of many that found by this technique so this is not only the discovery of the nearest black hole to earth. It's also the discovery of a way of finding them. Because of the way we found this one is that what the side. That's exactly right. That's the facts are gone. That's a giant leap. Forward really is a giant leap forward. I mean we actually talks about something similar to this probably four or five months ago. A another similar discovery. But I think this one is the one that really clinches it that we've got this way of discovering black holes by looking closely at the way stars excuse me stars in Binary Systems actually orbit. It's a very powerful technique and I think. Unlv told me about two more over the years. Yes I surprised. They've only found a dozen or so in our immediate vicinity over the years but as we have discussed these things are very elusive but it Naseem sit. They've revealed to us away of of now. Finding them in we we may be finding them in their hundreds of thousands in into the future We also talked in the past about The size of Blackhall's I think you did allude to the size of this one but just Give us a reminder. How how big is this? Did you say Yeah full-time Semester? Of the Sung Sung and that sort of sit in the black hole sizing chart it is Andrew under member. Where you have this I. It is a standard black hole that we haven't really had a definition for them. We know the trade in the world of astronomy. We referred to the Stella mass black holes because his the same as a style. And you know you again if talked about this before we find black holes in basically two different categories stellar mass black holes. The kind of like this may be up to ten or twenty times the most of the sun a the supermassive black holes it up to ten or twenty billion times the mass of the sun so a very little in between and finding new objects in between these another of the challenges what you might call intermediate mass black holes because they must be out there and we we think that they look principally in the sentence of globular clusters those things that it probably the remnants of galaxies that have been gobbled up by bigger galaxies like the Milky Way so there is a picture building up about giving astronomers method of finding stellar mass black holes. The not active that. They're not emitting xrays because of the accretion disks that's a really powerful step forward and it comes about once again because of the scientists of spectroscopy you're looking for that Dukla. Wobble they the thing that reveals planets around stars the idea that a planet pulls star slightly backwards and forwards and reveals the presence of the planet. The diplo level technique may new since nineteen ninety five but the This is an extension of that in a way kind of doppler technique but for things much bigger than planets for black holes so it's a very powerful finding them yet we we oughta one submit a paper or a An application or whatever it is we do to whoever is in charge of naming objects and suggests that these be called standard mass black holes. We ought to do. What do we know astronomer? Who's got context might to do that? Fred yes I was. It's going to suggest that this would be the International Astronomical Union wouldn't we'd have to. Ya and they would say well very nice but we've already got the name for them. We Call Them. Stella's black holes and tell you much I think as far as spice Nazis come that standard black holes Andrew. We'll call them a standard blackhall from here on if we were to do so. That varies from country to country. This is fabulous new. So it'd be a heck of a lot more to learn and this is probably some chains dragging for a little while Finding a A standard blackhall so close to Earth. And did you say it was Observable with the naked I was that what I heard. Yeah that's right. It's a visible to the naked. I am I don't have a note to the Magnitude which is a technical term used for the brightness of Stars Eight You know probably about fifth or sixth magnitude which is roundabout the You know the limits of visibility with the naked eye maybe fifth magnitude So would be a good candidate for a fighter. Graph are yeah. They'll be many of them. But of course all it shows up in a photograph is a single point of lies Because e you don't see any of this structure the binary star trove it because that's only revealed by the fact that you can watch the way the styles move around with a spectograph Checking registered losses as we call it so you know the this stop it will be any image taken of that part of the sky with with modern digital cameras It'll be it'll be quite bright because he's a naked eye star but he won't show anything different about it To to to the casual Luca. It's only when he saw analyzing the motion of the component styles that you realize that there is something very very special jump in this. Yeah we're Eighties Josse Excite. When non remember that Raw Dan? It's a wonderful discovery show. We'll get to talk about it again real soon. You're listening to space nuts with your.
