"Well we might as well telegraph. It's not dennis shall we can can you. Can you tell not only not only. Can you tell the denizens not here. But it's a. It's a telegraphed in advance that. It's me your texas show. Buddy mark davis morning host here at six sixty a answer in dallas fort worth where i do the best possible show. Prep imaginable for the dennis prager show. It's called doing my own program that ended just one hour ago seven to ten central time. That is my playground and man If we had a bunch talk about an a lot of it that is of course originating here in my beloved lonestar state is of great national interest so there are a few things. I'm gonna do today. So whenever i'm blessed to come here and and hang out for dennis always lay down a little thumbnail sketch of what we're going to do. It is july twentieth of twenty twenty one a date of huge significance to me because i am At least here in dfw. And maybe nationally the go-to space dork in american radio. And it's because. I'm old enough to be that and old enough to remember fifty two years ago today when neil armstrong lay down those historic footprints along with buzz aldrin. I in the sea of tranquility fifty two years ago today. The footprints on the moon tonight at ten fifty six eastern time nine fifty six central. Do your math elsewise. And i got a couple of things to say about that. And especially wow today and this was the day that jeff bezos decided. Let's go ahead and do it today. Because they wanted it to have some historic significance in it certainly does jeff bezos and his little brother and some dutch teenager and the wonderfully named wally funk. A woman a an eighty two year old woman who is a member of what was called the mercury thirteen. You may remember the mercury seven those were the actual astronauts six of whom went up deeks laden did not but he got to run the astronaut office later on so i guess that's a that's a little bit of makeup but they had thirteen women who may put through various stages of training a whole lot of them did really really well and while he was one of them and she's a local woman she lives just a few miles west of where i am here in the dfw area and she and the whole flight was eleven twelve minutes there.

Branson, Bezos, Musk: The Billionaire Space Race

"Richard branson's being outed longer than the others. Seventeen years or so since richard branson. I announced his ambitions. Two thousand four. When virgin galactic was started. I think back then the intention walls within three or four years. They be doing what they've only just done now of of taking passengers into space but for him dates back and he. He talks about this a lot. Doesn't it back to nineteen sixty nine and watching the moon landing a teenager. We choose to go to the moon and and do the other thing not because they are easy being taken outside by his dad and the pointing up at the moon and realizing there were two men up there east folks at one of those men buzz aldrin in the nineties and and talked about the idea of using plane rather than a traditional rocket as so. The idea is been fermenting for a long time lot of setbacks on the way of course. I think a lot of us wonder whether this would ever happen. He's proved he can do it. And i think that for him is why this is so emotionally significant but also practically significant in a business sense as well. Let's go through the others then we go elon. Musk of tesla. Fame with space. X.'s dragon capsule and he's the best known for his space ambitions around the world. Think just because of his global profile that he has and has had a lot of success with the commercial side of this deals with nasa of taking things up into orbital space which of course is much further than branson or some of the tourism operations are going and has talked in perhaps much greater ambition. About what could be done. He's talked about colonizing mars. Easy said he wants to go to mars. he's also said people might die. Going to mars but ambitions seemed to be much bigger and grander than just space tourism. And someone who through his life has solve the big problems as he's seen them around the world and this is one he sees that needs to be solved by the private sector. Then making up the triumvirate. Jeff bezos of amazon fame. What of his ambitions. what's his rocket. Program is interesting isn't because he there's far less publicity with with. Jeff bezos a blue origin. The company that will take him into space has been around for twenty years so longer than branson's virgin galactic but his plans all rooted much further back than that he he talks of colonizing space of building these holds where trillions of people can live something. It's thought he took from a professor. He had at princeton physicist. Who came up with his idea in the seventies so he has these grand ambitions that pass. He doesn't talk about as much as richard branson alone. Musk but which are very rooted in in history and clearly having left amazon this is now his focus on taking humans where they where they've not come

"aldrin" Discussed on Stuff They Don't Want You To Know Audio

"It doesn't mean that other stories are not true correct and the last night we can leave you with your that. That will perhaps send you off on a rabbit. Hole of your own is the following in an interview with the bbc. Head of uk. Air traffic control. Richard deacon claimed we see a ufo a month wow one identify unidentified flying object per month consistently but that could just be an unidentified plane that isn't responding to their calls. Give me a freaky look and birdman. Yeah it could be a lot of things. It could loans yet or classified aircraft That's the one. I'm most excited about but let us know what ufo incidents you think. Hold the most sand. Have the most grit the most credibility right which ones haven't been proven to be. What's the old saw. A weather balloon right. Yeah we would love to hear from you and you know it's no secret. That space is weird along with the deepest visible planes of the ocean. Space is one of the least understood environments that humans have ever experienced and there's still tons and tons of unidentified objects being spotted in the air under the water. We don't We don't know how to explain them. All it's pretty exciting time to be alive when you think about it it really is. I'm excited and i think we would be good. Astronauts not me my back. i don't think i can be a great astronaut. Maybe zero jas. He could wear one of those like ups guy back brace things surely they can build that into the space suit man that can be taken into consideration all right all right. I'll look into it then. You should try out. They have opened open casting calls additions. It's the next Next iteration of america's got talent. That'd be cool. It's nasr's got talent. This is one of the episodes about but like how do you guys feel. Obviously there's a lot of nostalgia wrapped up in nasa everything we're talking about. Was this kind of stuff that happened. Relatively in our lifetime and you guys are obviously hugely into the idea of being an astronaut. How do feel about the whole like privatization of Of space travel and exploration. And maybe some of the emphasis moving away from the way it used to be dying. Are we going to see more guys. Like old buzz aldrin. Yes so there's a there's a fascinating and complicated issue here. Which is the following. A lot of successful colonization in human history was essentially privatized dutch east india company or horrific company. Very very bad did terrible things but without that push toward privatization it would not You know the path of history would have been much different and those expansionist forces probably wouldn't have been able to reach the places. They reached a maintain the hold they maintained for so long so privatization is the next also. I believe we're moving away from states toward corporations so it did not inherently bad in fact many good things about it but potentially potential for abuse potential for terrible terrible things to happen. Yeah but that. Could you know you could say the same about a state run operation and a lot of a lot of the big players that will be in the future. Space race are going to be state and private partnerships. You know like that. It may be supported with funding from the state. but it's owned by a private entity. Yeah you know. What i mean doesn't elon. Musk struck you guys. Kind of a bond villain figure he he he. He worries me. These done some pretty amazing you know he has..

"He goes on and says that he was. I guess. Taken out of context statements were taken out of context and it goes further. Yeah yeah series. What he says he goes we. Well understood exactly what that was and when we returned we debriefed and explain exactly what we observed and i felt that this had been distributed to the outside world of the outside audience and apparently it wasn't and so many years later so this is taken out of context. Basically so many years later i had the time in an interview to disclose these observations on another country's television network and the ufo people in the united states were very very very angry with me that i had not given them this information. It was not an alien any continue saying extraordinary. Observations require extraordinary evidence. That's what carl sagan said. There may be aliens in our milky way galaxy and there are billions of other galaxies. The probability is almost certain that there is life somewhere in space. It was not that remarkable that special that unusual that life here on earth evolved gradually slowly to where we are today but the distances involved in where some evidence of life may be. They may be hundreds of light years away. That's a great point. That's the whole fermi paradox. Thing that we've discussed on the show numerous times so we can't get there. That's what he's he probably can't get the us. The odds are so low so he's aliens do exist. It's very likely that they do existence. Highly unlikely the will run into them so he himself is denying that he saw an alien and claiming instead it was a ufo and to your point knoll that just means we didn't know exactly what it was it could have been A million other things that were not extra terrestrial in origin. So in this case it seems that the aldrin's story may be largely discredited. We did mention. Of course cooper mitchell pass passed away so they had to be using prerecorded audio. They should've mentioned that. But there's something else here what. If aldrin was not the only astronaut to see strange things in the stars. We know that during the german. I four mission pilot. Jim mcdevitt had spotted an object he described as a white cylindrical shape with a white poll. Sticking out of one corner of it. He took a couple of photos of it. And he thinks it was unknown but man made debris 'cause near-earth orbit is just full of space junk right but other people were saying maybe it's the second stage of a titan to used in space exploration and then in two thousand and five and astronaut named leroy chow reported seeing lights in a line almost like an upside down checkmark..

"I think we partner with them and make a new show guys whereas just reading the paper. That's it that's all it is. We should write for them. That's a great idea. She'd all get pseudonyms. A right for them. Buzz rendezvous is unfortunately taken too far off track. What's kind of interesting. I'm looking at their site. It seems like they're little more just into covering weird natural phenomenon in and a lot of these stories and i'm sitting on the front page are now never mind. Got two one six inch alien and gwyneth. Paltrow buys the weinstein company. We did she. And i don't think so fascinating stuff right to tablets nowadays have an aura of unreliability. It's that's something that we all associate with the term tabloid then the etymology. That how it evolved as maybe a story for another time but in addition to being a tabloid the daily star was the only original source that reported this and the other outfits we found that were reporting ultimately are going back to at least in this case back to this daily star story and that you brought up a fantastic point that we can't gloss over which is that. This is one iteration of thing. That's come up again and again and again since the first First days of Spacefaring civilization. Oh yeah immediately after. Those astronauts landed probably even before that there were questions about. What did they actually see. Yeah and they have been another thing. That's different with this. Case is that people are easier to reach now so various news. Outlets from the independent to australia's the pedestrian reached out to buzz aldrin directly and said. Hey did you really say this. Do you believe this happen. Aldrin's spokespeople responded to the to the australian outfit. We mentioned earlier the pedestrian and they categorically denied the story and took it a step further. They called unfounded and bogus. And then they added. We don't know where it came from. They had never heard of the bioacoustics institute they had never heard of this reporting and so the official stances no way what is that and we can take it. As further buzz aldrin himself was asked about not specifically the study but unidentified aliens and spacecraft in a reddit ama which is a An acronym for ask me anything right So we have a long quote from him here and we can probably just split it up between the three of us are paraphrase a little but he says on apollo eleven in route to the moon. I observed a light out the window that appeared to be moving alongside us. There were many explanations of what it could be other than spacecraft from another country or another world. It was either the rocket we had separated from or the four panels that moved away when we extracted the lander from the rocket and we were nose to nose with the two spacecraft so in the close vicinity moving away were four panels and i feel absolutely convinced that we were looking at the sun reflected off of one of those panels which one i don't know so technically the definition could be unidentified but we well understood exactly what it was so are we. Are we seeing. A sort of a misinterpretation of the idea of a ufo. Like in the parlance of nasa astronaut. Day to day operations. That could mean many different things right. Yeah that's that's part of it..

"Frequencies and architectures found in the human voice can be used to identify the innate mathematical biomarkers that represents states of health and wellness murph. It sounds a little strange. Let's keep going. Frequency based medicine is currently positioned at the top of today's alternative health options. Okay so we're looking at an alternative health option here. Everything from homeopathy to essential oils which he considered something like that. And then if you keep going down the website you'll you'll see things like math matrixes for each individual for your health and wellness By acoustic vocal profiling which sounds fascinating. It does sound fascinating. I think one thing that a lot of people have problem with regarding bioacoustics would be that in other other aspects are in other parts of the web is also associated with the discovery of ancient wisdom. Or rediscovery of it. There's a quote from sherry edwards about this where She says novel. Research supports the assertion that ancient templar cross architecture contains math codes that support frequency based medicine. The idea of revisiting lost knowledge through the use of computer. Constructed biometrics provides a new paradigm. That will change the face of future medicine. It sounds cool but sound really interesting. Secrets of the templar dan brown type stuff and speaking of cherie edwards. She works with bioacoustics and she said that the tests that aldrin went through She said that alternate sure. He saw the ufo even though his logical mind cannot explain it. So whatever testing. She did the top secret stuff. She was able to tell that he definitely saw something. So it's not a lie detector. it is in a way. I guess i don't i don't understand so it's not a polygraph. I guess is what we're saying. Because usually we say lie detector polygraph the way you're describing sounds like an everything detector. It's it's looking at the vocal patterns of a person. So i'm assuming it's a some kind of spectral analysis of the vocal like after you record somebody at some kind of mental analysis and he's saying it can tell you things about your your health..

"And when you go yeah take me with you deal. Here's where it gets crazy. According to several different sources yes. Buzz aldrin allegedly saw a ufo in space. You have if you have any interest in stories of astronauts and stories of space exploration. We are certain that you have seen this pop up in your maybe your news feed wherever you get your news or heard about it on a forum or something like that. Apparently buzz aldrin saw a ufo. Yes and this is not the first time that it was reported but the latest iteration of something like this came on april eighth. Twenty eighteen yeah. It was a british tabloid called the daily star and they reported that buzz aldrin in three other astronauts gordon cooper edgar mitchell and awarding. They participated in this study. And we'll get into what the study actually was. But a study that revealed buzz aldrin as well as some of these other guys had in fact seen some kind of bizarre object or unexplainable phenomena in space right with a specific quote attributed to dr rendezvous. Which i'm i'm going to have to call him for the rest of this show. Okay say allegedly. He said there was something out there. That was close enough to be observed. Sort of l-shaped. Yeah yeah we'll talk about that attribution like you said. Yeah we'll tell us a little bit about what what went down there. What's the skinny. What's the scoop. Okay so the the test that they participated in was a different kind of lie detector test and not the one that you might be familiar with if you watch. Csi shows and things like that monitors your specific biometrics of your body. Your sweat your What your heartbeat. Your heart rate and things like that.

"To learn more so like a lot of people in the audience today when we were growing up at one point or another we all kind of wanted to be an astronaut. It's just a really. It's a really cool job. And when you think of exploring space if you listen to a show like stuff. They don't want you to know you have to ask yourself. What astronauts see when they're up there in orbit that's where buzz aldrin comes in. yeah buzz aldrin comes in in a big way because he in two other dudes allegedly or very much in reality went to the moon and they got to step on that puppy. See what it's like. Don't step on puppies. But they got to step on the moon yep and buzz aldrin would go on to be a pretty Interestingly outspoken character saying some things that lead to some pretty interesting speculation really fed the conversation around what could be going on out there. Yeah what was. He allowed to say what wasn't allowed to say did he. Slip up is that we're talking about in this episode. You'll have to find out.

The Speech Richard Nixon Never Gave

"On july twenty fourth nineteen sixty nine neil armstrong and buzz aldrin became the first humans to walk on the moon during their time walking on the surface which only lasted about two and a half hours. They received a phone call from the president of the united states. Richard nixon for purposes. That will soon become obvious. I'd like to play the entire clip free now. And don't worry it's not very long kneeland is talking to you by telephone from the oval room house and this certainly has to be the most historic telephone. Call ever made from the white house. I just can't tell you how proud we all are what you have done for. Every american this has to be proudest day of our lives and for people all over the world. I am sure that they to join with americans and recognizing what an immense speak. This is because of what you have done. The heavens have become a part of man's world and as you talk to us from the sea of tranquility it inspires us to redouble our efforts to bring peace and tranquility to earth for one priceless moment and the whole history of man. All the people on this earth are truly one one in their pride in what you have done and one in our prayers that you will return safely to earth. The call caused some controversy. People objected to using the moment to put the emphasis on a political leader. Democrats were upset. Because nixon had only been president a few months and most of the apollo program had been developed under the kennedy and johnson administrations nonetheless. The controversy was rather minor and soon forgotten. The speech however wasn't the only speech that was prepared in the lead up to apollo eleven the nixon administration was thinking about what they say in their phone call to the astronauts nixon speechwriter. William safire was contacted by an astronaut and was warned about something that they should be prepared for in a new york times article nineteen eighty-nine where sapphire was a columnist for years. He wrote quote. Frank borman our liaison with the astronauts brought the image making You wanna be thinking of some alternative posture for the president. In the event of mishaps the blank looks at this techno jargon he added like what to do for the widows suddenly we were faced with the dark side of the moon planning death if it came would not come in a terrible blaze of glory. The greatest danger was that the two astronauts on the moon would not be able to return to the module in that event with no rescue possible. The men would have to bid the world farewell and closed down communication preparatory to suicide or starvation.

SPACE FARCE

"Days ago. We observed the thirty fifth anniversary of the space shuttle. Challenger's bush in the killed seven brave astronauts and a chance to actually get into that. I just thought it kind of bring the room down and it would it. Would basically a habit gets reflect back on the failure that the shuttle program eventually became. I'm man i'm and it's arguable. That the shuttle missions were a failure but it just Conversations before with people who said it's the equivalent of taking a bus out of the garage. Hang around the earth a couple times. That's all it was but you know it was interesting. At least the space program had something going on at the time. And i thought it would. I even met a shuttle astronaut Good guy Just that by the time We had a conversation on a cable channel about moon landing in. I didn't like each other afterwards. And i i didn't. I didn't wanna cause trouble with him. In fact he was just an amazing astronaut. Let's astronaut my god guys space. You know pro. You know again. I look at astronauts. It's like i. I'd look at a veteran. Or i look at a soldier who fights. I mean they got more than i do. I sit studio. And gripe all the time but i just you know. I was amazed by The he was not my first astronaut. I've met a few Never met buzz aldrin or ordeal armstrong. Or anybody like that. A few shuttle astronauts. I've i've met a former nasa. Well no i interviewed chuck cernan but i was never. I interviewed him over the phone. So i i don't know i just have an affinity for space i i i love it because of course i love the topic of aliens. Ufo's avi lopburi more. We come on. Space travels amazing. I mean we'd star trek star wars. These are things. I really like And you know noticing too. I grew up in utah. Where more than fire call was twenty miles away thirty miles away from where i lived and this is where the rings were made for the space shuttle program of course the failed challenger explosion was because of the ordering problems were more than thiokol and only two failures in the whole space shuttle program where people were killed. Astronauts were killed. No real new information though. That was out there and You know and we kept being promised this was just you know the shuttle program was going to be used to not only take the bus out for a dry but it was also going to be used to go to the space station and bring astronauts food and stuff and now well for the longest time we were contracting russia. We're having a deal with russia to send astronauts to the space shuttle to the space station to well actually said food to the space as well and i thought why are we relying on russia in and this whole nonsense about how russia was our enemy and everything. They're our enemy. Why are they helping us with our space program. Just didn't make any sense. But yeah i mean looking back at our field. Space programs is important. Indicate that president. Barack obama crippled dass his efforts to send astronauts beyond low earth orbit. When obama came into office. he didn't want a number of other. Presidents have done to determine their goals for nasa. He formed a presidential commission to study the space agency and then he came up with some recommendations so he you a committee the committee. You basically. you're saying well. I think there are far more important things. We need to invest our money. And so i'm gonna cut your budget. You know basically what area. We're gonna bring you altogether. Cut your budget. So you're going to have to deal with you know whatever that's all it's been cutting budget and budget cutting and and And so that's why you have now space x that's why you have You know these other companies visas and others who want to do space because you know space has been neglected. The budgets have been neglected in our government for some time but we had a lot of conservative presidents like george w bush and of course donald trump. Who said yeah. We're all the speech program. Let's get it going. And the reason why is because there's brooke obama once said and this is one of the reasons why he basically said no to you know exorbitant budgets for space. He says well. You know spaces. In america. First issue. And we should be more universal. We she wore. We wore worldly with our concepts in our conquest of space. We need to do you know we didn't do it all together as a world. It's a it's a world bring people together in a world government or world philosophy. I think reagan kinda hinted to what he said. You know our differences worldwide would vanish. We were facing an alien threat from outside of this world but that was an alien threat. That was the idea that if there were aliens out there wanting to eat us then we would certainly band together as a group. I mean that's what independence day was all about right. See the independence day. Movie or armageddon were nasa saves the day. You know it's time and time again. We get told it. Our space program is amazing. Well yeah they do amazing things. But it's not as amazing as it used to be. I mean lockheed. Martin ceo norm augustine Headed up the augustine commission during the obama administration actually was named after maga sanofi headed up with the. It's called the augustine commission and basically they returned with a set of recommendations after few wants convening during the obama administration so the commission found the program then in existence project constellation was not execute under any reasonable

I was wondering if you could tell us about your company. G high performance coaching. What is that exactly. And how do you provide value to your clients. That's a question. I get a lot because a lot of people don't know what coaching inns. So i usually start out whenever. I do a workshop or all webinar presentation of product group. I always start with this quote by buzz aldrin. There are people who make things happen and there are people who watch things happen and there are people who wonder what happened. Who are you going to be. Twenty twenty one. And that's really what encapsulates. Mike coaching is that i get you to make things happen. A lot of people sit by the sidelines ago. How did he do that. How did she do that. Oh my goodness. I get you there so i help people step back and look at their career or their business from the long perspective. What's working what isn't working. Is it time for a change. And that's a critical juncture. A lot of people are afraid of changing something that they think has worked for years in isn't working right now but they're afraid to change it to get them out of that comfort zone into an area that might scare them a little bit and most importantly how do i make that change. So let's talk about the high performers. You coach how would you describe them. And the work that they do high performers is kind of like a misnomer but those are the people out there. And you're probably wanna you are one but a lot of your listeners. Are high performers. There are people out there crushing it every day. But they feel that they might have hit a ceiling crest in their career or their business and they need someone to help them break through to the next level or they're stuck or have been blindsided in their career and have to get back up in start crushing again. So that's why. I'm not near life forever like cable tv. I'm there for about a months or a year or two to help you get back into crushing it. So what motivates someone to pick up the phone and call you rich well. They want to accelerate their success. That doesn't just mean money. It's increasing the challenges. The interactions the fund of business. We all look for and they pick up the phone because they realize they can't do it alone. They hear from a colleague or trusted friend that they should maybe hire a coach. It's very common for who's successful executives in business owners to have a coach. They don't advertise it. And i'm one of the best kept secrets in. Since

Security operations centers: a first principle idea.

"The idea of operations centers has been around seemingly forever friedrich limb in his a history of western technology suggests that the concept goes back as far as five thousand bc amazing anytime an organization grows big enough either in terms of function or one. Small team can't do everything. Leaders have built these centers to men's the workflow and status of the various groups into coordinate. If you fast forward to the early days of the technological revolution we started seeing organizations. That began looking like a modern day sark. But we're quite there yet. The classic example is how nasa managed space missions starting way back in nineteen fifty eight now for those. Who don't know me. I'ma space geek specifically. I love everything about the space race between the russians and the americans during the nineteen sixties in fact as a side note the washington post lillian cunningham produced a thirteen episode podcasts. About that very thing last year it is called moon rise and i highly recommended. But did you know that when neil armstrong and buzz aldrin landed on the moon in nineteen sixty nine that the russians had a remote controlled spacecraft up there at the same time. I didn't know that. Until i listen to the moon rise podcasts. The russians crashed into a moon mountain as armstrong and aldrin. We're flying back to the lunar module so maybe that is why the russians don't advertise that much. But i digress. One of my favorite space movies is paolo. Thirteen directed by ron howard. And one of the things. I love about that. Movie is how it depicts the energy and sense of purpose of an operation center. Here's the actor. Ed harris in a virtuoso performance playing gene kranz the real life nasa flight director delegating tasks his crew of operational teams on what they need to do to get apollo thirteen at home. And the meantime whenever frozen command module to power it up another but the re entry batteries. We've been tried before we've never even stimulated it before gene. We're going to have to figure it out. i want people in our simulators working reentry scenarios. I want you guys to find. Every engineer designed ever switch every circuit transistor and every lightbulb. It's up there then. I want you to talk to the guy. Knee assembly line actually built the thing. Find out how to squeeze every aunt at both of these goddamn machines. I want this mark all the way back to earth with time to spare never lost an american in space where surest not gonna lose one on my watch. Failure is not an option. If that doesn't bring chills down your spine you might be dead. I'm just saying when telephone network started appearing in the early nineteen twenty s phone companies like eighteen bill traffic control bureaus to handle long distance traffic issues by the early nineteen sixties. At and t. Handled most telephone switching through mechanical devices and build a network control center or noc to manage it. At and t. Historians consider this to be the first knock ever built by nineteen seventy seven bell systems had built the first national knock in bedminster new jersey which looked a lot like modern knocks. Today there wasn't much security yet but if there was any knock operators were doing it in the us intelligence community the nineteen sixties were fraud with international incidents like the cuban missile crisis of nineteen sixty to the arab israeli six day war in nineteen sixty seven the us pueblo capture and nineteen sixty eight the prague spring crisis and czechoslovakia also nineteen sixty eight in the one. Twenty-one shootdown crisis in one thousand nine hundred sixty nine the. nsa decided that. They needed an operation center to manage their efforts. Across a wide swatch of international activity. Based on the freedom of information request. The nsa released a document in two thousand seven that described the formation of the first national cigarette operations center or insomniac in one thousand nine hundred seventy three and according to charles berlin. I hit him on lincoln and the answer me. He's a former in sock director. The innocent kept adding more responsibility to over time. He said that it's secret. Sauce was when the nsa decided to pair offense or cigarette defense or comsec in the same place. Eventually they replaced the word singing in the title with security. In other words it became the national security operations center. Berlin said that when cyber came along years later the toll of michigan came too big to keep in the in sock in the. Nsa created the national cyber threat operations center or the in talk to deal with it. But with the addition of the concept mission these operations centers started to lean toward defensive security on the government side and in the aftermath of the morris worm which was the first destructive internet worm

What Moon Landing?

"In the nineteen sixties, two things were happening more things are happening to. One it just two things. disclaimer were bottle of wine in the first one is the Cold War, which was basically between the US and the US are that started after the end of World War Two and nineteen, forty eight and lasted until nineteen ninety-one notice how I know when World War Two was. Throwing shade at the orange. I've had wine I'm a little snarky year. Then I'm not upset the way. The second thing was happening was the Vietnam War, which lasted between nineteen, fifty, five, and nineteen, seventy five. I did not think that was when on. Okay. But seriously I didn't realize the lasted that long either I thought it started like late late. Late mid to late sixties and went into the seventies. Yeah. Holy moly history is important because not only does it give us context as to why things happens, but it also serves as a blueprint showing what not to do if anyone literally anyone decided to pay attention in history class but whatever Got I. Him. So I'm fine. So in the nineteen sixties, the US was dealing with two things one they're trying to get the upper hand in and the other they're trying to distract the public from. Does that make sense had wine? Yes. Okay. Basically, it was a perfect time for the US government to distract everybody Hooker Luna verse. Where you're mass please. And this is why they decided to fake the moon landing. Where's the wind. please. Oh happy day. This explain why it started drinking. I'm so happy right now just help it off girl you're in need it I wanna make sure Rebecca some two but no, I don't just doing with to me this is a subject but I chose up my own free will thank you so much. This is going to be amazing. Okay. But why why would we do this? The US was currently racing the USSR to be the first to the moon and the fastest way to do that would be to fake it's. Kinda like when you're never mind. There it is. Oh, we made it two minutes. That's where we learned it from. The Moon and Do to the bad press the Vietnam War Gotten General the moon landing would serve as the. Distraction at the time luckily in this day and age that only have hundreds of people been able to see through the thin veil that is as opposed moon landing but have also been able to poke holes and this historical events. Can we make sure that you know take this is poured slash s please. You can't tell that from my voice I can I only sound this way when it's bullying? Sixties radio. Broadcaster Boys. Here for all of it. So now we're going to dive into reasons why are evidence as to why the moon landing did not happen? Okay. GimMe all of it I is there's no wind on the moon correct in the flag was waving. Yep that's pretty much where we're going. Imagine this iconic scene, the year is nineteen sixty nine. Neil. Armstrong. Neil. Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin are on the face of this lunar body preparing especially made us flag plant on the moon as they're securing the flag in a never ending show of colonization Oh my God something curious happens the flag starts waving in the winds, which is weird because there is no wind on the moon. The Moon essentially does not have an atmosphere meaning. There is nothing to cause old glory to way proudly in a patriotic breeze. That's

"Okay don't make buzz Aldrin come after yeah that's right I mean that is close that is not social distance that's true you know five people I can I just say we finished I finished with Cheney watching out of the corner of his eye because he doesn't watch that show but he does when it's on I finished season three this week and it just makes me happy and sad at the same time because it's just it's such a well produced show and it's just so fun to watch and it first the exciting beach felt like you know the road how pretty it looks now like a bandit I can like frosty at all this is in the educational aspect is so that you as we learn about how Britain and the monarchy is running how do the complete which is with each other and how do they react to us Americans you know how does it react to I'll be checking how do we how do they have to work with us in Facebook stock which really was eye opening especially now with season three going overseas now that we found hope to you know like school like learning more about prince prince Charles then like now the Camillus a character like open windows print stand come into play here and it's just a fascinating how does this new class police are good but we were so used to require Mr Kirby and I think that the new cast is fantastic like the transmission he works in my opinion so actually you know what I was gonna say so I'm only on season two and I'm watching it like slowly slowly but what I appreciated about it is to your point Paul that you know we look at from the outside we look at the crown you think like oh you know that like that opulent palace life but you really do see kind of the cracks in the figures behind the scenes yeah I think everyone expected on what we're seeing now yes I make one which works that they have to make all in the name of the image of the optics of the monarchy you're not the best choice like what is it so you know which choice is that Margaret and Elizabeth and Charles have to make that choice for them it's like all in the name of the monarchy you have to do this next contest analytical mind is like sounding like that I acting and just everything that she opened back just by looking at her face in her eyes in a way that a lot of actors do you yeah that's what makes her chest wall and I will say just for those of you who haven't gotten the season three yet if you see because the first two seasons right deal with an earlier time and I don't know that people have a lot of the same connections with the people involved once you get to season three towards the end especially you're going to start going isn't that this person like that's Camilla Parker Bowles and she has a husband or a guy that she's with lab there all these people that start to pop up that you will recognize and you will be curious and interested in them because they will represent the show will represent a part of their lives you haven't probably been not familiar with to up to this point that's so interesting so many kinds of questions do you give that I mean form half out of five cost center I mean it's it's such a good job and I think that once you start it you will be hooked I think I've watched all three seasons with the glove box like month to month I just about cried through all well you know and for people who haven't started yet now is the time what's another thing loving right now oh my god believes creek we can't say look I know it's at the title so you can select the final ticket is currently running on hot and I don't know what people know that something people used to watch it on Netflix the first spice you start back next but once you're in the business of selling without light I literally turning into but it makes my heart swell and it makes me laugh and it just puts me in my office how are you laughter warms the heart stays high slowly agrees you and I do want to say this because I've heard from people who are like I watch the first couple episodes and it just didn't grab me I you gotta stick with it because it really does develop in a way that you suddenly feel like you know these characters absolutely please characters are so unique and individual and I think it's how quickly this person again allowed me to create it with the statute you happy to find the person who these characters but we are and they all shine I think you don't even notice about the plant that this land the city action thank you you're welcome but you know we've got eight characters let's do that did rouse and his boyfriend Patrick but there's no discrimination and there's not a whole lot in this city so like Johnson this town with your work how a lot of respect yeah that we so desperately need right now and then it's just like watching the show and the Rockbridge either just explode with happiness becomes about something you didn't even realize it was about any project that that's not how reality is right now which is so like for extractions so true I know I've walked into the living room while gene is watching this and seeing him crying yeah in addition to last year has you just all the feels and Catherine o'hara has mom while I used to sell one yeah like with her but with that accent we and each trust is everything all cylinders it really does and it's this pop culture phenomenon for a reason absolutely so how many couch cushions are you giving that I'm giving you a hold rating system yeah I have a lot of those violent five charged Christians gesture just snuggle up and watch it lapse could not agree more okay and in a minute and a half or less what is the third thing that you're loving okay rodents who is now streaming on Disney classmates Saddam it is not popular on the other day and I just remember like how much is me how much I love about Disney and how they just wouldn't buy back your childhood and the animation with so since you the nominal and it's super funny and it was really just over the top and a lot of ways by making it a very truthful I live with a story about a family and also an Arnold thirty one I love it I actually liked it better than I liked the first one really I loved the first trying to feel like a lot of people were not feeling that feeling the second one yeah I I disagree even though I I mean I don't disagree I I had heard from a lot of people that they really liked it a lot and actually did like it better than the first probably have you haven't seen it yet but you saw for the first one right yeah I feel like I this will be I will be curious to hear when you do actually watch it we don't think because I really like the second one better I think he got a better grab on who the girls were that you know on and Elsa and who and how they related to each other and to the outside world and I just I loved it loved it loved it so how many cut couch cushions for that SO three five transcriptions and watch for Disney which is not surprising that the new pixel art work will now begin to be will be on Disney parks April third so there will be leading the charge with putting their content that we should begin almost immediately just to go directly to students

Why Has NASA Set Their Sights on a Human Mission to Mars?

"After returning home from the Moon Astronaut Buzz Aldrin said. Is there waiting to be explored? But what's the point of sending humans to another world? This is innovation now bringing you stories behind the ideas that shave our future exploration is in our blood. But why has NASA set their sights on a human mission to Mars? The payoff for human exploration is the science. Here's Molly Anderson. Principal technologist for Nastase Space Technology Mission Directorate. To explain the reason we do. Human exploration is to enable the science getting in the field and having the human there is an important part of the science really gives you context really speeds up the rate at which they are able to acquire data and make conclusions and so when we do these missions to the Mars surface and things like that. We really have to protect and focus on the science value that we're going to achieve while you were there. Developing the technology that will take humans to Mars to do that science and designing the robots. That will help. Humans PROTECT THE PLANET. While they're there will lead to advances in capabilities here on earth while inspiring our young people to reach for the stars for Innovation. Now I'm Jennifer

The Orphan Train

"Today the orphan train the little boys stepped off the orphan from train in Rockford Oregon hundred and five years ago. He had no luggage just the clothes he wore. He spoke only German. Someone had pinned a card art on his jacket. At said he was six years old. His name was Charles. Frederick before the day was over the boy would be loaded into a covered wagon with other children who've been the ship West from the crowd at New York City. Orphanages Frederick and his companions were headed for durant where they would be parceled out to farm families the Children Aldrin were part of a social experiment called placing out between eighteen. Fifty three nine thousand nine hundred twenty nine trainloads of destitute and homeless children ruinous many as two hundred fifty thousand in all were transported from New York City Boston and other cities on the eastern sea coast to cities and towns along along the burgeoning rail. Lines in America's Middle West and West eventually large missile West cities also established orphan trains in exchange for good homes. uh-huh children many of whom have been living on the streets and eating from garbage cans were offered to farmers housewives businessmen as indentured workers workers. Some children were lucky may went to families that adopted them and treated them with love for others. Like Charles. Frederick results were mixed. This Irish family took him my dad. Franklin Frederick Seventy seven says he was just someone to work on the farm although the place you now program operated in the United States for about seventy five years until recently it was little known part of history of American childhood. It wasn't a tone nineteen seventy eight. When orphan train a fictional account of first orphan train writers was published? The curiosity about the system began now. There's a national organization the station to help descendants of train writers find their roots nonfiction. Books have been written and organizations across the country like the Illinois genealogical society are gathering records about orphan train riders the orphan trains stopped included Rockford Freeport Rochelle Oregon in all ninety. Children were taken in by Oregon families. The babies would ride in train coaches. The older kids were just stuck in boxcars. They orphanage Operators couldn't afford to put them all coaches citizens and towns along. The rail lines learned that the orphan train was headed their way. When an orphan print agent posted handbills put notices in the local paper in the case of children from Catholic orphanages like Frederick and his companions priests in parishes along the way were notified in advance and asked to lineup homes? When the train arrived towns people wanting to child would come to examine them and make a choice? People would poke their arms luck their muscles they would pick out kids. They wanted if any were leftover. They would go back on the train and move onto the next stop. Many children fell through the cracks. Though they were mistreated malnourish overworked on the other hand. For at least half it was a good experience. They had opportunities opportunities they would not have had if they stayed where they were. They may not even have survived

Kennedy pledging to invest whatever it took to get American man on to the moon in nineteen sixty one I guess I'm the within the decade he said we will make it happen absolutely did you at the time when he said that did you think that's me I am going to do whatever I can to be part of that no I did not win John F. Kennedy made that famous speech a man on the moon by the end of the decade I was struggling with a courtesans of motion and the test pilot school at Edwards airforce base and the notion of flying to the moon was far beyond my Ken once I did join the space program and become part of Apollo as the months went by I thank John F. Kennedy more and more because the stark simplicity of his mandate was wonderful for us we we could quote John Kennedy and we can get things done we can accelerate people we tell people we've got to have this by day after tomorrow at the Kennedy mandate the simplicity of it the stark beauty of it really helped us along to the mound did you feel like you were part of some sort of Cold War contest because we shouldn't forget that Kennedy's commitment was in part at least driven by a preoccupation with what the Soviets were doing in the sense that the Soviets may be getting ahead of America in the space race this was America's determination to fight back did did you feel like a cold warrior in a sense yes a little bit we we of course were acutely aware of the U. S. S. R. we knew that we were in a competition with them but somehow that was behind a scrim behind a screen it wasn't part of our day to day life I didn't feel like an active competitor my problems were American problem trying to get American problem solved and although we knew we were in this competition we were our our lease my consciousness was ninety nine percent taken with non Soviet affairs or status you were picked ultimately for this Apollo eleven mission along side as you say Neil Armstrong and buzz Aldrin you then spend time training with them you did the mission with them it was a feat of enormous ambition and daring and I just wonder what sort of bones you for jhed with those two men Armstrong and Aldrin we form some of some very strong bonds but actually not really during the flight of Apollo eleven or even during a prepared to a flight of the flight it was around the world trip that we took after the flight when I I came to know Neil better during our training in the first place we had we had not been a backup crew as most of primary crews had been so we just you got to know each other in the six months before the flight which is a short period of time further we were split by by function Neil and buzz were primarily off doing lunar module training I was usually by myself doing command module in training so I somewhere along the line described this is an amiable strangers that I didn't in may not interrogatory way but when we were very hard working when the day was over we we didn't party we didn't drive a color coordinated corvettes or any of that kind of thing we were our noses were should the grindstone we had both come off the Gemini program so we did have some experience in space Gemini program was a fascinating but a much smaller program and it had more of a local appeal or or you're feeling about it almost perhaps like an athletic contest of some sort Apollo eleven on the other hand was heavy duty big business we felt though the weight of the world on our shoulders we were being looked at and examine minutely where under tight time table time schedule and amiable strangers we were we were in a sense but there's something intensely human about the the the roles you have because Armstrong and Aldrin as you say were committed to the the landing they were in the lunar module and they were going to be the guys let us be honest who we're gonna get the glory of making those footsteps on the moon you were integral to the mission but you were piloting the command module you would absolutely crucial to getting them on to the moon and getting them off the moon and back home but you were not then and it seems to me it takes a particular kind of man to be committed to the mission and it.

What's the Buzz on Alcohol in Space?

"Today's episode is brought to you by starbucks. They say that starbucks Nitro does for cold coffee. What music does for workouts road trips in grand romantic gestures sound too good to be true. Guess we'll just have to try it for yourself. starbucks nature cold brew. It's called coffee that subtly sweet lush and velvety smooth only at starbucks welcome to brainstorm production. INDIVI- heart radio. Hey Brain Steph Lauryn bo-bottle here in September of two thousand eighteen. A new breakthrough in space technology was uncorked uncorked especially designed bottle that will make it possible to drink champagne in the microgravity environment of space. The bottle contains two chambers one for the Champagne and the other for valve that uses the carbon dioxide in the champagne to eject foamy little alcohol spheres which can then be scooped into long stemmed glasses for sipping and once inside the mouth the spheres turn back hawala into liquid champagne this space champagne as the agency France Press reported is envisioned as an Amenity for space tourists who someday maybe taking pleasure trips with private spaceflight operators. If future recreational astronauts astronauts do get the chance to savor some of the bubbly it won't be the first time that alcohol has been consumed in space the practice goes back to the early days of the Soviet space program when the USSR's doctors reportedly said cosmonauts into orbit with rations of Cognac one former cosmonaut told NBC News. We used it to stimulate our immune system and on the whole to keep our organizations intone later on cosmonauts were given a liquor containing Ginseng a root. That's a traditional herbal remedy for improving energy and concentration NASA in contrast generally has prohibited astronauts from drinking not just in space but also within sixteen hours of a space launch but the agency has wavered from its teetotalling stance at times. They're reportedly was a plan for example to allow the Apollo eight crew to drink a small mall ration of Brandy to go with their Christmas meal of Dehydrated Bacon Cubes in Turkey gravy stuffing but commander Frank Borman decided that they should forego the alcohol on the Apollo Eleven trip to the moon in nineteen sixty nine astronaut Buzz Aldrin did open a small plastic container of wine it was almost certainly the first food or drink consumed during the trip but it was so that he a Presbyterian church elder could take communion according to NBC News as former NASA food fellow burs Charles T borland and in Gregory elva detail in their book the Astronauts Cookbook Tales Recipes and more nothing considered providing astronauts on the Skylab mission in the nineteen seventies with Sherry packaged inflexible plastic pouches with built in drinking tubes but the idea was nixed for fear of negative publicity and because apparently the beverage although perfectly perfectly palatable on the ground fill the cabin with an intensely nauseating smell on a test flight that approximated low gravity with freefall in nineteen eighty-five five and that's our report titled Living Loft Human Requirements for extended spaceflight contemplated the pros and cons of drinking on space flights and in future settlements on the moon or other planets it noted it is unlikely that alcohol is a social beverage will find its way into space at least until relatively large and stable settlements are established published alcohol as a recreational drug may be keenly missed by space travelers since there is evidence that alcohol plays an important social role in exotic environments generally though today's space travelers have to wait until they get back to earth before they have a drink because alcohols chemical volatility that is its tendency to vaporize brise astronauts aren't allowed to have it on the International Space Station. We spoke by email with Daniel g hyo a spokesman at NASA's Johnson Space Center. He said that this ban is due to quote the negative effects that alcohol can have on the water recovery system which draws in water from a number of sources including cabin condensation patia the bed applies not just beverages but to any sort of product containing alcohol such as aftershave or a mouthwash. There's another tricky issue about drinking in space ace. Not much is known about the effect of alcohol consumption on the human body in these space environment which already is known to alter everything from the immune system to hand eye coordination and no official studies have been done so we really don't know whether the space environment would intensify the intoxicating effect of alcohol or how an orbital hangover would compare to to one that results from a bender on earth a while. We don't have much science on alcohol and space for what it's worth. There has been research on the effects of alcohol consumption at high altitudes on earth in nineteen eighty eight study for example. Some male subjects drink a quantity of one hundred per vodka adjusted to their weight for one hundred and seventy five. I Pat Man. That's about seventy nine kilos. It was about four shots and then they spent the day simulated twelve thousand five hundred foot elevation environment. That's about thirty eight hundred meters. They were then compared to other subjects who didn't drink and or who stayed at sea level the drinkers experienced impaired performance on a battery of tasks with older subjects performing worse than younger ones but there wasn't a significant difference between drinkers at high altitudes and those who stayed on the ground although not much alcohol has been consumed in space researchers are studying the creation of it on the ISS Scotch Maker Art Beg said samples of Booze and would up to study how whiskey might aged differently in space and Budweiser's sent along batches of barley seeds a scientific effort to understand the effects of microgravity on beer ingredients.

"Way to the launch pad that launch control discovered. There's a hydrogen leak in the valve on the Saturn. Five in the technicians. Were really tightening the bolts about two hours forty three minutes before your launch literally as your transport van is pulling up I mean did you know about the leak as you were coming up to the launch pad where it was a details that we may have heard something about they're working on a problem and they think it can work it out but I think all of the crews of either observed or had a slip Mike and the countdown for the day before the arch and it just is really a nuisance to have to go back and start all over again so it's something you'd really liked to Avoi- if at all possible possible and of course include have control over that but it's very relieving to the cow pout. I'M GONNA get stabbed zero. There's no real glorious. Greece is up up to the command module but we hear somebody on the ground say if you can't think extroverts began to move al we have this remark. That's the word that's I just had the feeling that we will no longer connected to the ground of where you were dating this gradual acceleration. Okay see are taken site brace Saturday. That's the golf will you should feel. I was reminded if I got this down right that the fuel was really low on the descent during the Apollo loving emission. Were you ever concerned about fuel in that whole experience they are always concerned about fuel affected question of fuel consumption being rated piece at how far away is and Orlando site but if you want the truth of the matter lamb five on our plate coming off the production line a year and a half two years earlier was overweight. Orlando six was the first lander force quite enough and if that had been the person. I think it has been available October but the program. Manager for less than five what is their land so he felt he could alfons some reserves from desire five other reductions so will he went to see George Low and he said George if I could reduce the way nothing lead by you guarantee that it'll be Atlanta and George says well yeah of course we want to the war bus to vote someone in the crew site Escape House and Apollo Eleven van Macho wonderful four and five it. It was kind of weird but I learned that they'll couple years. That's the word so as I understand you you actually landed with an earlier heavier lander which had worst where's fuel requirements so that particular member of the team could have his lander on the first moon landing well the wait did meet the limits as prescribed but they were not with it over over abundance of bartered so other situations came up and the terminal phase which they say is it that we extend the landing a little further down right and that's of course themselves for appeal. We've known each other a long time and I've never actually asked you this but when you look back at this magic moment which in the entire history of the human race you know you and deal. I'm strong will always be at a magic agic inflection point when things were never the same again afterwards I mean how does it feel to be that historic. Figure in your recognized all over the world and you know and you've continued to be an active advocate for space travel and for scientific advancement. I'm just curious about how you deal with being buzz Aldrin and being a historic figure and you know you're permanently as long as human beings are around. You're going to be a figure here. There's there because you were part of the beginning of the next phase of human race why we realize that of course when when Apollo twelve to call with the guy and Colin being they made such that you're great precision landing and then poverty in had difficulties what they oxygen tank and the crowds team did what is expected from them and it was not miracles for brought back it was that the ground be good cold did what they were expected to. We have to do and the phrase fan. You're is not an option. Maybe a cute phrase but you believe that that means. You don't think something's GonNa feel so you know train for it. 'cause Fan your is ah options now what you have then you want to sell people working on it but they gotta bring him back safely and at that point <hes> being hey Paul responsible is not an option but I think it's a term that is just overused and bypasses how much effort has to be put into every possible thing that can go wrong and the best you can do have prevention or training for I deal with it does happen. What is your favorite memory from? The holy sprays fifty years ago. When of course we got back in after dusty on the outside close the hatch we connected to the inside oxygen electrical electrical supply and then we were disconnected from the back backs so we keep pressurized to get into the backpacks out the hatch now when they hit the ground the size bomber that I deployed they could hear them at the ground back in Houston? We close the hatch we'd pressurized again and having expanded. There's actually can enter the cabin place. It began to get other Chilean there so I used to childhood term so neil. I'd take on the floor that was the only place it could lie out so I like down on the floor by head on the CO pilot side and meals on the engine cover and reduce speed up somewhere so fairly comfortable so I looked over it just had tracked in and there was something it looks like it belonged there little further examination establish they have broken the circuit breaker so it was on my side of the cabin so I decided to get up and look at the rose of circuit breakers of which are out and some of which are in depending on the needs for that time the mission and certainly there was enough was not in a not <music> out. It was the end arm circuit breaker. That's the one when you get ready to life the infant engineer for she did after you land pull. <music> out when you get ready to go back home with the ash and in and you'll come back home well if you get bushing in it may not get back home. So what did you do that Western malfunction checklist and that's good cyber due Powell and expose all electricity behind it so here is where we this one of the classic Nick Terms Space Houston. You got a problem so anyway we told them what it was and they said well yeah our regular. He's got a bunch of people to look into all of a sudden cats and see if we can figure out subway so while we're doing that well. We'll tell you about it but you guys up there. Just go to see. Were you able go to sleep. What the hell else could we do? I look at this He. He was violence and all the on violence. When you gotTa wake today solve it? They said we couldn't find any way around this so we're GONNA change procedure and instead of and fifteen seconds before liftoff for you Donnelly Bush the circuit breaker in we're going to try and do something two hours ahead whereas electricity but I got a ballpoint pens but that's metal baby. That's not too good so I had my favorite was built that they're used to write the numbers down for the procedures that stood out a whole lot more. Hopefully thank you Seville defending. Bush's in Houston says yeah we got we got power. We got the countdown and we came out to spend twenty one days in isolation when you go back. What did you think about for three two weeks while we get a lot of debriefing that time if you're in quarantine with a debriefing you by telephone or were they coming in there is a glass window and the first briefing was doing executive advantage so we started with Apollo was in some ways the most famous thing you've done? The truth is you've been a leader on getting humans out into space for your entire lifetime and you've heard it astonishing and very long career. How would you like to be remembered? What's the core of Buzz Aldrin that you wish people a hundred years from now knew about I really I really hope that the contributions of John Hoople that succeeded in designing the basic philosophy of carrying out Apollo? I I hope that the expansion of that which corrects the philosophy of gateway and way stations and is able to use some of those early items to give us either laboratories in Earth orbit or to accelerate getting back to the moon and allowing us to not be hung up on the S._O._S. and Orion because I absolutely feel a number of people as we demonstrate joy neil on the eve of the first family but very very few could've done. I think I've been very fortunate to been able to do but it took an education the curiosity of combined and then experience and the clear and the need to make alterations collections as politically unpopular as I quite sure they are going to be. I'm very grateful that they you agreed to do this. I hope you'll really feel like we did justice to your.

"And it'll be really neat experience. Yeah. I think the biggest thing you guys did it wasn't. It was Christian artifacts obvious from the from the van again the Titanic. I think I did. There's also the there's this is probably going to be up there with that. I would think right. It's every zits is it still the treasures? Of course, we have the cinematic and we. This is just another iconic moment history that we're able to bring here able to bring it Cincinnati, and it's, you know, as we started the show with it part of it is because of the union terminal and part of it's because it's insane museums and our what we do. So, you know, we're very proud of or we're always honored to get these exhibitions and gets these artifacts to be caretakers for them and have that opportunity to share that with the city and this was certainly no exception, especially as near and dear Neil Armstrong, hurts here, this is important lie. We, we fund in why the Levy passed, I think most people said my God, it's a treasure, not just for the is. But, but for future generations to look at the but to go and explore and my kids grew up, essentially children's museum, and we have wonderful memories of our kids in there as well. That's something that future generations will benefit from. But the fact that matter remains is, we can be a magnet for attractions like this. I it's about educating informing EVA's connection to the history. That we all collectively shares Americans and we're just loaning our time here. We're just loaning things and we have to be stewards of them for the future. And I'm glad we did this and more. Glad we're able to benefit by getting something as rare as the Apollo eleven exhibit called destination moon, the Apollo eleven mission come into a museum center into September bail the way through February. And I'm sure you. I'm sure people are queuing up for tickets right now. Asking. July twentieth. Yeah, exactly right. I mean obviously the at fifty years later, here we are. It's, it's incredible. Hey, Cody museum center. Thanks again for coming on the show. Appreciate it. There you go. Probably I would think one of the most iconic things in Cincinnati. When you come down seventy five is seeing that building there. The other thing, too is. It's amazing. When Kennedy said, hey, we, we want to put a man on the moon. A lot of people laugh said we can't do it. It took eight years. In eight years, we went from we don't know what the hell we're doing. Let's work. The problem to Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin, walking on the surface of the moon Michael Collins, of course, the orbiter in fifty years. That's incredible eight years. How long does it take? About women talking about fixing in a ready existing breath, spins bridge, or the western hills viaduct, which by the way, went up long before the alarm strong in both Aldrin walked on the moon. We can't fix stuff. We already have let alone dream big projects anymore in America. I know I sound like a bitter old man.

"Them Buzz Aldrin, giving himself communion curious if there are things that astronauts smuggled into the capsule and mercury Jimmy or Apollo. Well, there's the kind of infamous moments in Gemini. It was Gus Grissom is the first Gemini flight crew in it, and John Young was his was his copilot and John decided the guts have better food that junk they were sending up inside the squeeze tubes. So he smuggled a corned beef sandwich and. Side. And so what they're up or he took it out here. Gus enjoy your sandwich and the next thing the little chrome crumbs be floating over the calf trouble chasing down. You know? You gotta watch. What you take up there? There's one other story that I put in a book, I wrote two thousand five I had some trouble tracking down. Actually, it's not something they smuggled but on a Pol sixteen which was John Young Charlie Duke on the moon surface the previous life. They'd noticed. Some heartbeat. Anomalies the astronauts on the lunar surface, but give you guys more potassium. So they gave him a bunch of oranges and said, Detroit are juice, I drink juice on the moon, heart healthy, and all that and young was kind of he can be kind of crusty character. Anyway, was drinking this orange juice? They had he didn't realize on hot mic, and he's talking to the other asked them out litter module between moonwalk saying goal during the Charlie I got the farts again. And he goes this big long hair about having gas gas or problems, and I'm not gonna ever eat me another app, an orange again and all this kind of stuff and he dropped the number of times. Control was able to break in and say, I John you're on a hot Mike gonna drink that orange juice more. Guys, like, the test pilots that best of the best. So that was a good moment. And then of course, as you point out the golf ball was just stunning. I remember seeing that as a kid on TV thinking that style. You know, that is really that was a great moment. Those are great stories. Thanks. Thanks for the call. Can. I say one thing about Gus Grissom. Go ahead. Yeah. He's from Indiana. So am I met a man that doing and what you reference Jimmy five the name of that capsule Tamale brand and the rebate was his liberty bell seven sank in the Atlantic Ocean. I'm going to name it the Molly Brown, they said. No, he then says, well, that's fine on name at the Titanic. And then they go back and agree on the Molly burns. Yeah. The great question in Purdue or MIT have more mercury. Jimmy and Apollo astronauts. Oh, man. You got me. I think possibly produced because I don't remember handful Mitee Buzz Aldrin prominent among but go on Wikipedia do account. Yeah. All right. Jeff, thanks for the call. Thank you. All right. Take care. That was fun. I really weird you tell that you tell that Corby story God. That's so funny. That is so funny story, and I can't help. And this is just me. This is the way I think I can't help. But picture Fred ward going after the. Every time. I hear the name Gus Grissom. I immediately picture Fred ward. I know it so hard to think of those guys and not picture, the people it is my favorite space movie. But it it's like, John Gwynedd Harris. You know, you can't really separate. Those is the envoy Sam sham really Sam Sheppard for God's sake. Yeah. All those guys. Yeah. Yeah. I love that movie. I really I really do love that movie. And I have to say my favorite scene was not the stay stuff. But it's win. He's riding his horse up. The x one is just sitting there burning awesome fuel and nobody else around. Yeah. And that was such a wonderful spooky moment. I thought. Yeah. Okay. I love this movie right right now with really funny. One of my memories of the first time, I saw the right stuff and I've seen the right stuff multiple times. But the first time I saw it and the movie for people who may not have seen it. It's it's over three hours long. It's it's a very long movie. And there there there was there was an interview they actually went I thought there was actually an intermission. And at the Esquire theater downtown, Chicago, beautiful big seventy millimeter theater. That's the way to the movie. And I I did not I made the mistake of not going to the bathroom before the movie. And so we get to the scene where where they have to hold their urine. Doing all the medical experiments on him and stuff. And I was losing my mind. I remember sitting theater why why is this scene happening right now? Because this is like a I'm actually feeling what these guys are feeling right now. It's like sense around or something. It was just what my one of my first memories. But that was very close to the intermission. So I made it. Okay. Well, and as he's up there that was. Yeah. The shepherd the capitol. Yeah. Exactly what he's up there. And you're seeing all these guys emission control. Pour coffee on the cat. All that. And you're probably sitting there the audience knees. It was hilarious, man. It was great. All right. So Mike Pence made an announcement that seemed pretty exciting for people who want to get back to the moon last week. What sells a little bit with what the VP set. Of a shocker so he came out and made a speech, and this is working with the national space council, which is the group that is also executive branch to give NASA, you know, overall direction and that line goals and so forth and they've been talking about trying to get American astronauts back to the moon, and maybe twenty twenty eight for landing, but we don't really have a Lander. And those kind of a and Pence came out and said, we're doing it by twenty twenty four we wanted by the end of the second Trump administration if there is one and that that that was a bit of a shocker, and there are a lot of people, including myself that kind of sitting there were Gaza open, and I kind of a mixed feeling of this is really cool. And you sure, yeah. We've seen this happen. You know, Kennedy famously made no sixty one sixty two at the moon speeches, and that happened in that work, and there's a lot of reasons for that cluding having a really good enemy of the Soviet Union to push against then Reagan's tried it with space station freedom that took. A really long time to happen turned into an international effort, George H W Bush, George W Bush both tried to do similar things return to the moon, and none of them, really contracts. The money wasn't there sport wasn't there. So hopefully, this time it will be the the next thing that happened though. Which really did make me feel good and give me hope when he said and paraphrasing, and we're we're looking at all options of terms of how to do it in commercial rockets part of the deal. So if NASA can't get the SOS together on time and on price that we use the falcon heavy here we use Jeff as this new Glenn rocket. They're gonna be cheaper anyway. And now, you can really make this thing. Rock and roll. What I did was kind of weird was in bogeying, China, especially Russia, the bad guys that discussion because. Yeah, China's reactive space and they're both doing some some military stuff in orbit that. We're not terribly happy about Chris over week. But you know, Russia once we pull out. Using the Soyuz or take SpaceX, and you and Boeing rocket rockets and capsules up to the national station Russia may kind of cease to exist as a human spaceflight power for while because we're paying a big part of the freight for them. So I think that was a little little little fuzzy for me, but but the rest of it was really exciting. Yeah. I was surprised when I heard that was the time that was a timeframe how do you think is NASA gonna feel okay about using the there's been there's been cooperation between the private companies in space is and all that stuff in the past. So. Is gonna get along here. Yeah. I mean, they're hardware that big Arbor's always been built by our space company. So Grenville litter module for the program North American aviation, which came Rockwell built the command module, but different companies built the Saturday five. So they always use aerospace companies do this work the difference now is instead of cost, plus which means you bid the project, and then you get a fee on top of whatever you spend with massive price overruns, usually 'cause you have to get it. Now, it's fixed price. So hey, SpaceX will buy rocket. But you gotta do this price. No ups, no extras surprises. And so that that's a very different deal. But even when you when you look at masses internal studies on how the work that was base x that the their own auditing office says look these guys doing it for anywhere from a half to attend to what it costs us. So what's just go with it? You know, they know what they're doing. They're putting a lot of their own money into this stuff. Lease for the early part of the development, depending on on the rocket. But talking heavy all there. Money so far till this last launch. So you know, that's the way to do business. Now, you can really get things moving quickly to price. Okay. All right. Well, we'll see what happens. What do you? What do you have any? What were what are some of the things that will be that will block that kind of time line for for for this situation? For the lunar stock. They don't have Lander. So they were working on some designs back of the constellation program. Two thousand roughly two thousand four hundred two thousand ten so I don't know if they're gonna pull one of those out a month balls or go with something with one of the private companies Basil's has been working quietly on a lunar Lander. It's not human rated at this point. It's cargo, but it would be possible to rewrite a people. I don't think. So it's question of how we get down surface. And are we going straight from literature from earth orbit lunar, the like Apollo or we're gonna stop I the lunar gateway which is the program asses working on before announcing right, which they smaller space station around the moon. They are now in the interest of time downsizing that. So that you've got a little more room than a bit sized RV live is that bigger station. So, you know, it's kind of feeling like Apollo again where we're raising the trying to quickly and that's fine. As long as it isn't another close in. Program that says, okay, we're done. And now, we got no use for this hardware. That's happened last time. And that's how we ended up with the shuttle. So let's not do that. Let's make sure we keep going there. Okay. All right. Rod hang on. Okay. You bet. All right. We got one more story here to talk about with rod. And if you guys have any questions or or comments space related talker tax three one two nine eight one seven two hundred one more second here with with with rod.

"aldrin" Discussed on 850 WFTL

"Red Eye Radio. Hello and welcome. He's Gary McNamara. I'm Eric Harley as we moved into a Wednesday. Welcome to read is state of the union. While I'm reading some of the feedback that that we got Gary and Eric. What was Nancy chewing? Eric what was Nancy reading? That will be the five hours of talk today. My that was remember reading she's going over papers or something. It's like, I think she was reading. I think she was reading the script. I think she was reading the speech. I think she was reading along. What did did he did? He was ships up because he went off script for a moment or she might. That's what I wondered if because you know, the president is it's funny because I wondered this before but not necessarily about state of the union. But I've wondered before if you know, if they if they'll go after the pre because they often will know what the the president's going to say, right? Get this speech or any other kind of. I guess high profile speech they've released beforehand. And so, you know, I wondered this about the response the democratic response or any response that the opposition gives they prepare their response based on what they're given. So where I was wondering when I saw her reading. I'm I I'm thinking, and I I saw there's comment she's likely reading the script itself, the the transcript of the speech the taxed, and I'm wondering if they had prepared their response based on that text or altered the response speech based on what he was going to say. And I wonder if she was reading along going do we need to change anything on the fact, you just? One eighty because that would be hilarious if we found out that he was going to promote something very strong that the Democrats would just hate any did just the opposite. I I mean, it would be, you know, for my own entertainment purposes. But I just wonder how much of that. While we go back to Chachi, you know, he's just messing with you. But but the fact to the matter is is the president. I think came off tonight and the polls show it. You and I look at these poll numbers, you know, of of what people thought of the speech, and people CNN gotta be scratching their head. You know between these somewhat positive in very positive people that the people that believed it was either somewhat positive were very positive in nature. You're talking about seventy six percent. That's that's or seventy three percent. It's it's incredible. It's unbelievable. And I just wonder if they would say, yes, seventy six percent. I just wonder what they're thinking in these newsrooms when they see that kind of response from a state of the union that happened what a week and a half after the longest government shutdown ended. I think a lot of the Democrats were probably believing that this was going to be horrible. You know, you saw Maxine Waters, you know, everybody should tune. Now. There's no reason to watch his state of the union. He's got the state of the union under him is horrible, blah, blah, blah. She ignored. Of course, all the unemployment numbers and an economic numbers that are working for the president. But you you look at that. And you you have to wonder what the Democrats are thinking now because this will change things I believe for a couple reasons. He did not stand down on the wall. Remember the yesterday and from the weekend but into into Monday, we were hearing, and and his spokesperson said it, it's going to be all about unity, and there was really no focus in terms of that in that answer about the wall. And we didn't know if he was going to just completely abandon it and not do anything, and it was just going to be, blah, blah, milk, toast, and let's all come together. But he stood very strong on the wall. Made the case for the wall. I think a number of times in the speech, and you add onto that Buzz Aldrin standing up in saluting. Many greater moments in terms of the union. Okay. I'm not gonna say in presidential history. But maybe it's because I'm still writing off of of a couple of things that I just watched on on, you know, people who the men who went to the moon the documentary shadow on the moon, which was terrific. But, but Buzz Aldrin was in that, and he's just you know, when you see him when when he looks into the camera, and he talks about it. You're just thinking gosh, it's incredible. When he stood up. And he saluted the president. You know, again, that's that. Here's someone who served, of course, his nation in in a way that only few men dead relative, relatively speaking. And saluted his commander in chief that that was greatness. Well, I I just I love it because I've met Buzz Aldrin one time, and I it was at a cocktail party. Yeah. Ghetto for it was a broadcasting event down in Houston this back in the mid nineties, and you said to him. Well, I I I turned I I was talking to somebody. And and I turned around. And there he is right. He's just right there in front of me. You're in a crowded room talking to somebody. I as I turn around, there's Buzz Aldrin. He's looking right at me. And I'm looking right at him. And I just looked I said a magnificent desolation like I mean, those are my first words to him any wet. Wow. You remembered by remembered, and we had we had a great conversation. Yeah. And I've just never forget it because it it. It was one of those one of those moments where you just say to yourself. Wow. That was that was so unexpected. And I'm African laying in bed that night amazing. How just moments in your life lane bed in the hotel thinking to myself can't believe that happened. I just can't believe that happened. I can't believe that happened. Right. Well, and I was waiting in. The I was waiting in the movie, I man, I watched that as well recently. And they never of course, the the big moment of putting a flag on the moon. They never they didn't do we already know about that. But they also didn't have him say that at the, you know, the the guy who portrayed Buzz Aldrin. They just skipped over that part. And I was waiting for it. I was there going come on come on. Gary. Because I know a few people do know that. Well, it's always a trivia question. What did the it it it? It's always been a question of, you know, how we ignore the person that comes in second place the person that is second doing something. We don't pay attention to example. We all know what the first man on the moon said what did the second man in the moon say, and so that that's always fun. But when it comes to the state of the union address, it's something that I mean, I was just I read it and listen to it right before we get on the air, just because my sleep schedule. And so when I wake up it's almost as if I had to I don't want to hear anything. I don't want to see anything. I don't want anything to taint my opinion of it. So the opinions that that I have are just fresh. I haven't looked at anything. I haven't been able to you know, analyze the entire thing. It's just what off the top of my head. You know, it really really struck out at me. Number one is always first state of the union address. How it has the potential now you and I talked about this in the pre show meeting quickly. I hope the president can carry it on. But the state of the union address is where you get to have the stage alone in a setting that lets people know. It gives people the it gives the impression like no other event in politics. That the country is one that I I don't I don't know any other event that does that because everyone in power is there and part of the the ceremony of the president wanted the president being introduced and the president walking down and everybody, you know, cheering and standing up. It's it's not a celebration of that individual president. No, no, that's not what it's it's it's a it is for that moment to me. It's always been that moment has been a unit one of the shortest, but most intense unifying moments that you can have presented to the American public. And so that in itself sets a different stage for a president. I'll never forget, for example, when when Bill Clinton had the longest one of the longest, and it wasn't two thousand I believe it was. Probably his third or fourth state of the union address. And it was extremely long. But it was just a list of what he was going to do. And we're going to give this to this people are going to give that to that people are going to get it as that people, and it really fell short, even those in the left said, well, it's just a whole laundry list of giveaways, and I've always thought that that isn't the if even if you're on the left, if I'm a political consultant, I'm gonna tell you don't do that don't, you know, don't do that make it about number one tell the things that you did. But talk about the greatness of this country and give a vision for what the country should be. And also, add the most important things of substance that you believe that you should. And he did all of that. He did it right off the top of my head. He did all of that. He one of the most frustrating things about this president for you. And I we said this all along the worst thing about this president is how he communicates. And the most frustrating thing about it is the fact that last night. It shows he has the ability with all the negative press and all of the angst on both sides. He has the ability as I stand right here looking at it. And you started out the show with it CBS and CNN polls. Seventy six percent of you approve of President Trump's state of the union speech, CBS, seventy two percent approve of his immigration ideas. That's what you and I said all along. He he went on on what your shoes he went on the issues he on the style he wins. They approved of him because they liked him. People. Don't approve of people hate you. If they go in, and they they hate you because they perceive you as a certain way, right? It all of a sudden. And you're not talked about how his tone has changed since the midterms. This isn't the first time his tone has changed since the midterms. And you've been said yesterday on the show. You said I believe you said this before he said, well, if he could just go on and let them all be angry and he's not angry anymore. He's just out there. You know, giving the statements. He's not he's not in the rally mode where he is giving the raw meat in a campaign speech. But he's talking to America as a president as he did last night he can win. Well, and he went and. And it's interesting because I I wondered this after the election in two thousand sixteen during the transition period, and and what was going to happen. And there was some talk. And remember the whole thing of you know, the answer on Hillary. We won't be going after the Clintons. They're nice people on the whole thing. And and so people were wondering, okay what what kind of president? He's is he going to be we we saw the over the top of bombast except during the campaign season, and and up to the election. Most people did not see his victory speech that night. We did of course. And we carried it on the program. It was in the middle of the night when very late and most people didn't see it. We thought that was a really great victory speech and talking about what he was going to do. He used the word we allot in the whole thing. But I, you know in going back before the midterm you. And I were kind of throwing this idea round of if you retreat back to the tactical version of Donald Trump, and I'm. I mean, the the version that was on Larry King the version that was on Oprah for years and people were asking him. I mean from the left and right. Are you ever going to run for president? And he talked about things that by the way right now president he's you know, he's enacting he's doing he's talking about. We're talking about you know, other nations paying for their side of the war paying for what they owe the US and all that he's talked about for decades, but the tone if he carries that tone and the media has already built up the hatred,.
