"Are you ready. I'm I've been ready. You didn't sound totally ready there well. Here's the thing about twitter questions. I don't look at at the twitter questions because I don't want I want to be I want you to throw them at me and I want to be able to catch him. You know what I mean. It's however however you do your work. Best is fine by yeah. I mean yes here we go. I'd love to hear your take on the umpire calling a strike on Charleen Palmerston after getting hit in the face with the pitch love the podcast Guy Yeah. That's what I'm saying. It's like you know I would be ripped shit. If it was my guy but unbiased third party here you kinda. Just gotTa go. Hey them's is the rules. If if you you know those it sucks. You hope that he's okay. You don't root for injury. You don't get any satisfaction out of a guy getting hurt but if you can get a strike bearing yet and out there you gotta you gotTa take every every bit that you can get especially when you know you're you're angling for for some playoff action. Can y'all do a draft at the end of the year for just like this just like this year like the all time draft but just just for this season current players the answer to that absolutely yes. That's it seems like a great idea for the offseason. Yeah Yeah I'd love to I would love to. Let's find like someone else besides the grounds crew to vote on that you just want the alienate our fan base. That's not really nice. Maybe maybe maybe it's something like the All Star game where it's like. The fan voting counts just not all the way the fan voting voting is one thing and then I make a decision looking back at the start of the year. What would you say say. Is your worst. Take something that you were excited for. At the start of the year that went to Shit in the end. you know nothing really comes to mind for me couldn't have been the pirates starting rotation could really yeah so. I'll probably probably just go ahead and sit this one out. I'll let you guys chop that up. I'M NOT GONNA be raising it. That's for Buchan. Oh Dallas I believe that I picked Paul Goldschmidt as the NL MVP so that's that's my answer thoroughly mediocre season season. I think I picked a thing. I picked Trevor Bauer as the American League cy young and he's not in the American league anymore that I failed on a lot of levels actually yeah. It was bad did I. I didn't yeah I think that's probably my worst one. Yeah I mean pitcher with a era closer to five then three is probably a good answer to that question yeah bad any final thoughts final thoughts. I was watching. MLB Network last night and they had the cardinals knows game on and out of nowhere. Jim Edmonds just as lobbing bombs at Ryan Ron and we we have the audio clippings play for your now. It was freezing freezing for sale is on the SOFA bundled up and I said to one one of our medical people. I go well. I guess he's not GonNa go to they'll. He's got a fever. He's got the chills and he's willing to play may not take batting practice but but that's the way we were taught will play. Some people just have that in them and some people don't I said boy. That's I said that says is a lot bottom any this person semi Dan. You have no idea how much this guy wants to play. We can't get him out of the lineup. Appreciate there's a guy in Milwaukee. That has been a really good player for a long time. Not GonNA mention names you can guess is does not WanNa play all the time and it's frustrating thanks to watch and he's a really good player. You want him in the lineup every day but if there was a twinge not interested that Wanna get hurt anymore. Don't I WANNA go when he's not full throttle and it's just like we were taught when I was coming up your name and that lineup makes our team better. Even if you're not healthy the pitcher thinks your and that's the key I those weird because it seems I mean the cardinals are not even playing the brewers so I it's just yeah. It just seemed like out of nowhere. He just wanted to get that dig in on on Ryan Braun and his broadcast partner tried to steer the conversation away and in Jimmy Baseball's just like no. We're finished his dig get Ryan Braun and we can move on after that yeah. I don't know they were teammates. buell forget. Jim Edmonds last stop was with the brewers and then I think he got traded to the cubs midway through two thousand ten which was his last season eight forty season and he was teammates with Ron on which was the year before Braun won the National League. Mvp Award. I don't know it feels like something must have happened between those two behind closed doors for him to hold back type of resentment. Eh and I wonder if bronze Grand Slam the day before might have sparked some some extra fuck that guy in Jim Edmonds to the next day. Eh Be like Oh yeah by the way you know who sucks you know who never wants to play in when they're hurt. Ryan's broads xactly where it came from jared. That's exactly exactly where that kind of stuff comes from and as as we talked about him kind of being older on his way out of the game at that point in time he's got a a younger. Ryan Braun doing what he's doing and there were probably days where edmonds his name by debate in the lineup because Braun was taken a day. Hey Jude veterans is thinking you know who the fuck I am. You know what I've done in this game and I'm the one who's going to wear this night. Game Day agee turnaround here because because the youngster Braun does it feel because his back book and hurts me. I'm talking forty back hurts to. You've got to believe that that's probably where some of that game it would make sense. I mean definitely definitely felt like some some deep resentment that he was holding onto for some time to just rent bring that up in a in a fucking cardinals who were they playing the nationals last night the nets yeah. I don't know I just found that very interesting like I. I'm not used to hearing that on a broadcast. I I wasn't even in like one hundred percent paying attention to the game. I was like eating pizza. I was looking at my phone. I had the game on and then that caught my attention. I was like he fucking. Is this really happening like. He's really doing this yeah he was. He was kind of kind of going in there getting after five final thoughts are. Oh my God he seuss. Lazardo is really really really good. We were so close. US close as close as you can be really yeah. I mean there is a I don't know maybe like in close to two hours worth of audio before this snappin them all right well until Thursday. That's for Thursday's episode talking a lot and nationally baseball. It's going to be great. We will stay clear out of the West don't you. Mike Trout's injured no reason to go back there yup.

I know that that's what I'm saying but we need to get the baseball guys with golf. Guys Waste Management. We need to make some Let's do every year. It's that's pretty doubt all right so we have four replays the golf podcast. We'll do a four play starting nine crossover with page sporadic. We've got the few times Z. Same She. She's she's in New York now. Wow yeah well. We'll definitely do that crossover but we mentioned toilet earlier and back when he was in in Boston. I remember John Farrell. He was like the rule with an iron fist guy and it was almost like he was dad and Tori was mom like if you wanted had to get something you go to mom so what what type of relationship do you guys have a Tory and like what type of like clubhouse does he environment is promote man Tori a I mean ultimate players Major. I mean I think you hear that a lot but I mean Tori at least for me. Tell him everything he knows about my relationships on and off off the field he's just Kinda that type of guy where he always presents things that makes you feel like you know he was in your shoes and I think that's the Greatest Testament dettori is he remembers coming up and kind of struggling you know and not being consistent player like he wanted to and how hard the big leases and he never shows you. He never makes a bad face. He's always is going to tell you your role where you stand. I think that's the biggest thing in today's game is the communication factor and he is the best. I've been around. How has he been with you like when I first got called up. I was was like freaking out on like I'm in the manager's office like yeah. I'm thinking back in college when like the head coach is like the scary sky ever but he was he was awesome like he's just there's such a he's a player's coach. We have meetings. You know talk about stuff like that's going on and he's just been unreal. He's a guy towards the guy everyone says yeah. Ah clubhouse wise like that was. Let's cool is I don't know if you WANNA call it leadership council or whatever but every every couple of weeks he has a bunch of guys from different groups of the team come into his office and it's just like bullshit out food. You don't like a base running. Call bullpens being ran. It's just like kind of an open floor yeah yeah and he really does He. Kinda takes comments and he writes them down and he puts into action and then clubhouse wise. He's always said like that your room right guys. Make it whatever you want. However you want to run on it music. No Music Dress Code. No dress code. It's it's your guys run it. How much do you think that that's helped you guys ton. Yeah I think a lot because I said you know guys being able uncomfortable when they come to the ballpark baseball such a weird game. It's it's it's a team game but there's so much such an individual aspect to it right and from mark are staff training staff coaches. Torey the environment that they have is just be ready to play whatever it is you want to go get in the hot tub all day illness show till five when the the game starts be ready to go and we'll get after yeah. That's that's basically what I've heard about him. Always is this like guys players gravitate towards him but for you being a rookie rookie in the league. It was there anything in particular that he like said to you. Is there any like guidance any advice that he gave to you like when you first got up here he remember. I got pulled from the a game against the dodgers early so mad because you know I just punched out a smart Russell Martin Fourteen pitch at and I was so mad and he talked about that and he was like you know you know. Today's not the day like we're GonNa get you to where like you're going to throw one hundred ten pitches and you're going to be that guy for us and literally the next game like you know. I'm looking at one hundred nine pitches so like he he just like motivates. You and you know he's. He's a guy that you want to play for so has it has like the holy shit factor worn off yet like that. I'm still up here. I really ever wears yeah. you know where you're just like. I mean eventually you get into a groove becomes work and you're in a routine and it's so just like monotonous but yeah I I mean like wh what was your what was your first impression of a big league clubhouse. I mean obviously you're like horror stories. Yeah I was like this every team's different some teams. They're like they're trained to be like yeah like younger guys who gives a shit knocking other clubs where they embrace the younger guys in like to what was your experience like that uh-huh yeah the horror stories and I'm like. I don't know what's going to happen but I came up in. Everyone is just like you said. Everyone is just like super welcoming like they're. They were awesome. Congratulations like everything like that so for me like that made me feel better and made me feel where I can be myself and I mean it's been awesome ever. Since how cool is it to get to watch a on a daily basis that means free guys swag man Dan. Yeah I mean to to see him from his first year when we got him over and you saw this bark you saw the talent that was in there and then I tell them every day I was like. I love watching play baseball watching watching him and ask you go back to back like they're. They're amazing man watching watching those guys in the way they've played and both of them especially Escobar but Martine like they're. They're both just such happy guy right like you can't help but smile when you see him do genuinely makes you happy as a teammate as a person to watch these guys play baseball because Escobar's thirty homers homers thirty already yes. The smile is. Se Smile Smile lights up the whole cla bells yeah so I'll ask ask you guys this question if the diamondbacks will make the postseason because blank like I'm not saying you're guaranteeing it but if you if you make it to that wildcard game it'll be because blank who may off. I don't want to put pressure on them. I'M GONNA put it on the two guys we just said because Martin Escobar we're a whole team and it's GonNa come down to our stars the whole bullshit yeah realistically if those two guys keep swinging at Man. We're GONNA WE'RE GONNA MAKE X. Factors those guys are I mean. I've seen it time any time again. Just in Cincinnati I mean Marseille the homers he hid and ask you and it's Kinda like if these guys keep it up man. It's going to be tough not to runs or making plays on the filming. Marty's Marti's going from senator so impressive. Those guys are those two guys. Keep swinging man. I feel really good about the chances. Yeah and obviously both of you guys sitting right here. He's he's yeah imagine that you're strikeouts are up this year. I think as a reliever you're already had like a career high and strikers this year. Is that like. Do you think that that's like a stuff thing. Do you think that that's guys they're in like the launch angle mindset where they're all trying to hit homers and you're taking advantage of that like what's the what's the difference. I think it's both at yeah I would say. It's both because there's there's some guys you get your like all right. I just be some guys like man. Those are just really bad swings. Yeah definitely definitely just trying to take me deeds and you read swings. Yeah you have to yeah and then some of us just like hey here. It is yeah here. It is yeah and I feel like there's there's as you kind of like go along the League not allow guys reading swings. Now guys are like all right. He was out on his foot there and then you're just going to be able to defeat depending depending on where we're where we're playing some places don't have TV's and stuff so that you know you do your pre-game meetings but then during the game if there's a TV where you can see like in the bullpen and you can kind of see swings yeah. What are the type of approach guys had but you know when you're not able to do that. It's like on the fly right. Oh pitch it's all right. What was that guy trying to do there. That was a massive swing Yep. What's the situation more trying to accomplish. Is this the guy I'm trying to strike out or my trainee contact right here. How much video guys watching I don't watch time really I'll. I watched it a little bit. You know on some some guys in some areas where like I know I'm trying to guy so make sure that they don't have a high slugging percentage do damage but outside that there's so wash information you guys doing like heat maps. Wasn't it should show you gotta be like I'm a nerd so I am looking. That's stuff and I'll manipulate it anyway. Fit from everything to curve balls of the last eighty one scene he walks less than four percent of the yeah chases this pitch fifty eight percent of means from numbers to percentages. There's everything you could ever imagine. Do you think that there's a such thing as too much and yeah like he because I mean we say this all the time. I don't know how many hitters you've had on this podcast but like if you truly listen to hitters talk like I say this all the time like I'll never get a hit ever again Shit they talk about. They say that they're worried about and trying to cover online. It's nothing you would think of all right. I'm just trying to fill the ball somewhere. Close Zone and you're working inside outside up and down. I'm too old trying to get over the late fall behind you. That's crazy so like I I do either of you because I've seen guys now. Obviously outfielders will carry the card in the back pocket now. I'm seeing pitchers have that in their hat. You guys are never going to get to that point. No that's more of a science thing like yeah because you know a guy even on first base worried about his base coaches stealing scientists -cation nations so you offer you..

"Aw come back to starting nine all that jazz episode one twenty nine this this interview that we d-box interview. I couldn't wait. We've got a bunch of interviews in the tank and I was like you know what this one's cut. The front of the ones that d-backs could use the raw they haven't been playing well recently so this is a very very fun interview you Dallas from the top rope about halfway through just fucking dropping elbows on Archie Bradley and and Alex Young. It's it's a lot a fun. Stay tuned for that again. The d backs could absolutely use the rub the National League Wild Card picture as we predicted an absolute shit show take my whole time line. I've follow. Probably you know a few fans from every team. That's at least in contention. It is mass hysteria in the streets streets. We got mets fans being like we're in the mets. The mets season's over it's done. We're on a jet season. Now you know the cubs are freaking out. Cubs fans for the cubs fans are they're very on edge. which by the way I remember back in two thousand sixteen when then the cubs won the world series and there are a lot of fans that were kind of wondering like will they be as passionate now that they've finally actually one one same aim discussion happened in Boston after two thousand four and no? I think it only enhances it so Cleveland Indians fans if you're wondering like hey are we still. GonNa Macaire as much. If we actually do win one I think it only heightens the passion for for the baseball team. cubs fan still coming out in droves. I like the cubs like the the environment at Wrigley Field recently as pen like a playoff game. We'll get into the cubs because we've got some things to talk about their injury wise but the brew rip to the Phillies can we can. We put a fork in the Phillies yeah. I think this is. I think this is a dog race. I think this is a three dog race in that is is that phillies appreciate. You barely knew Ya that is what it is. This is between the Milwaukee brewers the Chicago cubs and the Washington nationals to see who will be the odd man out. Yeah I mean if we're burying the phillies that means they were burying Manson burying the mets that means we're burying the d-backs but still still time. I guess especially if the starring nine rub comes into play for the D-BACKS CISCO. There's still time for them to get back into thing. We'll see but for now I'll agree with Dallas. Nats cubs brew crew I'm in the mix here but the cubs have caught fire at the right time. The brewers have caught fire at the right time to fucking Christian. Yelich went down. I think it was a week ago today. It was on the livestream. We're doing the livestream every Tuesday. there's a few of us. I think Tommy smokes is going to be in there tonight. Because Luis Severino is returning to the mountain which I'm very intrigued to see how that how that plays out. I'm very intrigued to see how that plays out we'll. We'll get to that in a the second to but there are some moving parts here there are there. There is reason to believe that these these wildcard pictures will got a little bit more interesting moving forward We interviewed Barry Zito today sure did I'm surprised that you we're able to get through the thing without touching your cell phone appropriately well. There's a reason that the camera angle is from my neck up jared so jokes on you pal. you know how much I love the lefties man but obviously Z special place in my heart. No the guy didn't get to be his teammate in the big leagues but as he alluded to run around so it's good to catch up was I mean when that interview drops i. I need to know the stories that I know that he Amana faith were was not about to tell look I. I feel like the second that he's dropping yeah. You know remember me you in Brian. Wilson used to run around together at all. I I was like all right well. I know you're not gonNA say anything. I'll just get this from Dallas later going to need those whether on air off going to need those they're probably off. Promptly I'll give you. I'll give you this much. There was an evening in Barry Zito and I actually actually sang summer loved together. I believe Karaoke one night at a at a bar that he he was having having an event at. I believe but yeah. That's that's how evenings used to start jared got it. So so how did I don't. I don't know if I should save. They've these sea Barry Zito questions for zero podcast but like just because we just conducted the interview I kind of I'm curious now. How did you link up Barry Zito. If you guys weren't teammates I I know he's still only across the bay but right well because of the relationship that I had with Brian will as as as Z. alluded to it's like I said I was always like that's what was really cool about hanging out with Wilson especially during the height of fear the beard and the giants giants are fucking ball and out of control in this like I was able to be like Oh shit. That's your friend of what what does he do. Hold on. He plays big league baseball to like. I got to just be in the in the background. You know what I mean like just along for the right with great so I I yeah. That's how that like. Oh Wow Yeah Dallas spoke you were with the as you were in the bug like you or the law like it was it was it was really funny at first because it was like well shit like we had those conversations the home you come you come from a job you think that's why was thrown out the whole the the lefty in the measuring stick because that's that's really how it was and so then for a young kid being measured up against or be compared to these guys and then a couple of years later here you are having how about a cocktail or two with said individual so now. I'm starting to connect some dots here where it's like okay Dallas Brayden and best friends with Brian Wilson. They're they're in the whole wedding thing together but Brian Wilson People forget there was a time when Brian Wilson was like that fucking guy like he's in the commercials. He's on the red carpet at the SP's. He's a major major player and Major League Baseball L. Manuka Dallas walking around with them and he's the he's the blending guy and then he throws the perfect game so it's all perfect storm storm so it's like okay. I he gets into the mix. Is The in the background guy now. He's got some big time. CLO- and now he's partying and hanging out with all these other a big name in the big leagues. I feel like Jay this entire time. We've been doing a podcast with the man who's just sitting on all these incredible stories none of which we've really he ever heard definite fish. Isn't it really yeah. I feel like I feel like. There's there's is a lot. I mean we're a one hundred twenty nine fucking episodes into this thing and casually stumble upon. Hey Dallas used to party with Barry Zito. No big deal right. This is this is this is me letting you guys know that any all secrets that you may harbor should should they fall upon these years. They don't go anywhere else. It's it's right here. I am H rush tree in and of itself. I trust you're think you're Mike Von. That'd be good Huh. Stories are yeah. Those stories are definitely more more fireside chat material. You know that's that's stories for sure. I will be getting all those off excited for that. do either of you have have any major takeaways from from many games that were played overhang. I oh I thought you were going to ask about last night because I definitely did last night. it was a battle that it was tough. You think you got to out you think you've got everything locked up against one of the weakest hitting offenses in baseball the guy with one home run at the plate against your all star closer and then things just go this. This celts awfully personal. It's awfully just a ripe opera. It's just a ripe opportunity for me to pay you back for those very mean. Spirited Indians takes last week. No you would think hendrix against Phillips would be a battle that the athletics would win but you would be wrong and that's what's beautiful about baseball. That was my main takeaway. What about you guys. GotTa take care of business against the royals yes. That's that's that would be that. Would that would be a takeaway. I was GONNA go with the small condensed Ale schedule yesterday that was that was gonna be by taking away but no you're right. You gotta with an electric tape. That's thanks for that condensed schedule. Angle you gotTa win this. I think now's as good as time visit that you want to start throwing. fucking arrows guy is to let you know that Bhai Crystal Ball about as Clair's it's ever fucking been. Because what did I tell you was going to happen to the lowly tribe. What did I tell you exactly. It's like I said it and both teams were listening. We're like our guys book. It hit the button. It's time the Tampa Bay rays just rattled off after win after win after win. After I told you look out raise probably going to get hot and you know what happens when the rays get hot that means somebody's going to have to shift the bengals early in at eight fucking Oakland. That's for sure there's only one in at this and it's the Cleveland Indians who have found themselves. What's the taste of the division. They are now J. standing her at the altar with their empty. Fucking bowl looking up at me with those big sad dough is asking for just a bit of Porridge Lord Sir just a bit more. Please just a bit get the fuck outta say no soup kitchen. This is the big leagues baby. Here's here's what I hope. I hope that the athletics can can right this ship on this one game losing streak because you'd hate to see this turn into more. You would hate to see this all unravel. I don't know why that's all I've got to say. I'm I'm way too classy for this conversation. That's all I gotta say. I agree with J very very classy. Individual exudes class nothing but class I also had to take anyone who's willingly watching orioles versus Tigers Baseball while I need your. I need your address as because because we're we're sending the police there's. I don't understand why you would subject yourself to Orioles Versus Tigers Baseball in twenty nineteen. It's not a knock on the current rosters slash. Maybe it's a knock on the rosters but it is so like you watch these Games tillich towards the future right here like you could turn the game on or you could just leave it off and you could save another homerun. You know it would be kind of a hot idea doing a lot like going to like tigers game like one of those like day..

"You know, one of the things that I love. To do when I talked to my colleagues is really trying to understand how they got into this field. What was the events in their life that really got them excited about their science gave them that gravity assist that propelled him forward to become the scientists they are today. So Alex, what's your gravity assist? Well, it's a, it's a multi-party system. It's a couple of little tiny, pushes them in one giant push. I started off when I was a young kid. I saw the original Star Trek not in in in syndication at I was fascinated by this idea of exploring space and especially the character Mr. Spock the scientists on the enterprise. And so I thought, man, this would be so cool to build a do that and then not around the same time I saw show by Carl saying in called cosmos, and he took you around the universe in a spaceship. He had his own spaceship and. He explored and I started to see, hey, I can actually do this. I can actually be an explorer like Mr. Spock, but I can do it in real life and study the universe from here with telescopes and spacecraft. And there was an exciting time because it was the early eighties. So Voyager results were coming out. I was writing to NASA. They were sending me pictures from Jupiter and Saturn rule career, and the same time I was getting specs for the space shuttle, and we're just beginning with the launch of Vatsa all this was happening. And as I slowly slipped into high school at that time, my dad was an art professor, and one of his colleagues was a physics professor and they made a deal. The physics professors daughter wanted to study art, and I wanted to study physics. So they said if we can swap and in the afternoons go in meet with each other and learn. So I went and met with a physicist while his daughter met with my dad. How I learned about physics. He helped me and I built a laser and went to sign to the science fair and really got into all of us. And so the all of it just sort of came together finally, and that was the piece that just shut me out. And that was the really, really serious assist. That's fantastic. Well, Alex, I really enjoyed our time today talking about the sun. Certainly one of my favorite subjects and really appreciate you here. Giving us your wisdom and letting us know what's happening in the field today. We'll thank you and I am so excited that you had me here. This is fantastic. Join us next time as we continue our exploration of NASA science, I'm Jim green, and this is your gravity assist..

"Well, but the also the spectrum of those that star was different. Regret much more UV much more rays. So all of the planets were being bathed by huge amounts of radiation. And this has had an impact on how atmospheres themselves formed these. This radiation is interacting with these atmospheres changing how they evolve, and it could have had an impact on the energy source itself needed to spark life. Because as I mentioned, the sun was dimmer and we have what's called the young son paradox. So did we have enough light enough energy. To support life, but there are other energy sources the particles, not just visible light, but the x. Ray and UV. So these are all pieces of the puzzle that we have to take into into effect. Yeah. So the faint young sun, you know, means that it was very dim in its past and that paradox what that's all about, of course, is we know early on that Phoenix earth and Mars had an enormous amount of water. And yet it had so much energy from other sources than just the visible light. Right. And the cool thing is, you know, we've always talked about the Goldilocks zone this region where it's not too hot. It's not too cold. They hang in terms of liquid water. But what all of this research has now shown us is that that whole idea of what is it to be habitable is much more complex and we have to understand the activity of the store and all the other injuries sources that it's producing to really. Define what we mean by habitability for our planets in our solar system as well as exit plants. Yeah. So the study is space weather's gotta factor in. And so that really is really all about an evolution of the central star. So as you mentioned are star, the sun was rotating much faster in the past. It was dimmer, but all kinds of other things were going on, how, how is it going to continue to involve evolve? What is the next steps? Well, it will continue on the course that it's on right now for quite a while, but eventually inside the sun, it's currently using as its fuel source hydrogen, which it's turning into helium eventually. Once it uses all that up, it'll turn to the helium and start fusing it, and it works its way up the periodic table to a point where it can't fuse anymore elements. And at that point it starts to change its out. Utter atmosphere starts to expand. It shifts more more and more towards a red star much like the star of superman in crypt time, and it is becomes what we call a red giant. And it starts to fill the inner solar system. We know about these because we can see stars that are like that as you describe red giants and and other revolves stars that have about the massive our own sun. So it's gotta be a connected. It's it's a normal process of the evolution. And now we have computer codes at actually calculate that overtime. Exactly. I mean, all of this is the coolest thing about it is just recognizing that we are living in such a small little period snapshot of what's going on. And as we understand how the planets have evolved, we have to understand how the stars evolve and connect all those pieces overtime..

"We've been in a relatively small solar cycle that's the eleven year activity cycle. So we actually don't really know what else, massive or strong solar event would do to the infrastructure that we have today. So now that we know about this and we're becoming much more aware of how active the sun could be because it has been more active in the past. How can we protect our technology here on earth? Well, there are a lot of things we can do. One is simply prediction that is trying to make some sort of estimate of winning VIN is going to occur. Now, as you mentioned CME's they have to take some time to get here. Now, as far as solar flare, there's not a lot you can do once you see it, it's here so there you just have to be prepared for fast reaction time, knowing that you have a spacecraft, there's activity on the sun and what kind of adjustments can you make to the spacecraft flight in flight control? So we're studying things like drag and whatnot to to better understand that. But other things we can do is when we talk about the impact on the power grids, we can improve the power grids themselves improve infrastructure. And even when we know an event is coming, we can do simple things like turning basically turning the power grid off for short amount of time what we call a Brown out. Just like if you knew there was a lightning storm coming to your house. The first thing you might do is unplug your stereo right. In fact, how it affects our power grids is really because of the Aurora. The Aurora has huge currents that are in the eye on us for. And so as they pass overhead, then induce other currents in our power grid that aren't usually there and therefore they can overload the transformers, burn them up and and that's what causes the massive power outages. Exactly. Because these currents are looking for places to travel through large conductors, and you know, we also see not just this happening and power lines, but we even see these large currents conducting through pipes pipeline, right? That can actually cause corrosion to increase in the pipeline. So is we talked about these massive coronal mass objections that occur. Sometimes they hit the or sometimes they don't, but but you know, we've got other planets out. There. That's right. So what happens to them? Well, it they definitely interact with all the bodies in the solar system, and they have had impact over the years. We now have had a mission called maven, which has been studying Mars for a long time, looking at atmosphere IQ loss. And we believe that over billions of years, solar wind and criminal massachu- have slowly stripped away the atmosphere and the atmosphere we see today on Mars is not the atmosphere at used to have. Right. But the other aspect is, what is the magnetic field of those different planets, some planets like Mars don't have a magnetic field global Mayfield right now. Venus in addition. So the kind of magnetic field determines the interaction that's going to occur, but it definitely occurs with all of the bodies sources. You think there's a little bit of connection with the space weather and the importance for the formation of life in our. Solar system? Absolutely. One of the things we know is the son has changed over time. It was it was much dimmer in the past was spinning much faster, but it was also much more active. We estimate the early sun was producing many Carrington like events on a daily basis..
"alex young" Discussed on NASACast Audio
"One of the reasons for that is, as you mentioned in DD saw of the reconnection occurring just above the socio sunspot, and that's what the flair started to do, and then a coronal Massey junction lifted off seventeen hours later, there was the Aurora now coronal mass ejections take what like eighty hours typically to go from the sun right in so seventeen hours. This thing was really moving and had an enormous amount of mass and then and then the award was. Observed a cutting right through the United States through Mexico in down into Central America. So pretty pretty spectacular event. And this was a really cool event for a lot of reasons than we've seen similar things. Even with this July two thousand twelve event, the speeds are comparable. That's about seventeen hours for to reach about the distance from the sun to the earth. Now that went, didn't hit the earth that would didn't hit the earth that had us spacecraft on the side of the earth stereo. But that's base craft was at a distance is about the same distance. But the other aspect was we also saw this effect of multiple events where one event kind of clears out the way, and then the big one blasts through and it's it's got this free rains just week through the solar system and slam into the earth in this case. So it's a double whammy. It's really to coronal mass injections, those regions or so act. Active that they continually reconnect now they come from really big sunspots, right? We're talking sunspots that are many times the size of the earth and this sunspots the bigger they get the more complex they get. We can see how much energy they have contained inside of them. That gives us an indication of what sort of activity might we see. So are there other events like the Carrington that are that we can go even further back we can and there's been one that's been talked about recently. It's now called the Charlemagne of it by some because it's estimated to be with then a period of about seven seventy four or seven seventy five somewhere in that period during the time when Charlemagne was first recorded in carbon fourteen in tree rings, wow. Now that you're just. This is. Wow. But then this was put out by group from Japan, but then some other scientists sat back and try to figure this out and they said something doesn't seem right here. This is just a little bit odd. So they looked at their calculations realized that they didn't calculate for a very focused particle event, and they treated it as kind of a giant bubble around the entire son and turns out it wasn't a thousand times bigger, but it's still tend to twenty times bigger than the Carrington event and is massive. Well, would happen to, you know, our technologies today of event like that occurred well, it could be quite catastrophic and there have been studies by the national academies, estimates certainly billions and billions of dollars of damage estimates up to even trillions of dollars because it would have such a global impact on our technology infrastructure. We. You could see power outages across the globe in an interconnected power grids, especially there would also be impacted communications, but another aspect satellites we would possible possibly lose minisatellites. Yeah. So the modern day technologies are are kind of susceptible to these space, weather effects. And one of the aspects about this is that we're now in an age with technology. We didn't have even during two thousand three and certainly not during nine hundred eighty nine..

"That may that sounds like a lot and it is, and it's a special offer seem ease. It's the biggest fastest. One we've ever recorded. So these are bubbles of reconnected magnetic field and in those bubbles or all the atmosphere that it captures in just sorta lifts off and then flies at us. Exactly. And the crazy thing is that they're, they're really huge. They start off bigger than many earth's in size, and they quickly expand as they're moving away from the sun and very quickly. They can fill huge portions of the inner solar system. Ninety degrees or one hundred or one hundred and twenty degrees in in in size as they pass by the earth. Yeah, they're just phenomenal. And they're carrying all of that material billions of tons of material as well as the mega field of the sun inside of it. So you know, as a young researcher in in my particular field, that's where I take over and we found that you know, when those coronal Massey Jackson's hit the earth's magnetic field, we always see Aurora now see him. Me may or may not hit the earth, but when they do, we're in for a beautiful of dazzling display of a rural lights it. It's an, it's amazing, and that's the first sign that we can visually see and experience of what's happening. But they're so much more that happens when all of that stuff is interacting with a magnetic field. And this this kind of tear shaped bubble around the earth until the magnetosphere. So as you were talking, you know, comes to mind, you know, over the space era, the forty fifty sixty years now where we've been putting these puzzles together and trying to understand space weather and getting a bigger picture of it. Have we seen everything the sun can put out in space weather most definitely not. And yeah, we think about it. We have seen not even a blink of an eye of the life of the sun so much has been happening. The sun was when I was younger, it was far more active and we really only seen a little bit. We know from looking at historical records, both things that humans have recorded in terms of Aurora, they've seen that there are huge storms, but we also see signatures in radioactive elements carbon, twelve beryllium tin. These are things that are left by nuclear reactions in the atmosphere with particles, and we can see these traces in things like ice cores and tree rings, and we know there have been much bigger events in the past. Now, what are some of the big historic events that we've been studying? Well, there've been a few in the modern age and space age. The one that I talked about the whole series during October November, two thousand three Halloween storms. A very famous one AT. Sorry, nineteen eighty nine March. That was when there was actually a storm that caused a power outage in Quebec, very well known. But the the big one that most people try to refer to is what's called the Carrington event. And that was seen by Richard Carrington. Then in England in September, the end of August, beginning of September eighteen fifty nine. There were a series of events. He saw the first white light-flare. So a solar flare visible in white light with a telescope from a sunspot. And then few days later they observed Aurora here on earth. And that's the first time they made the connection between these magnetic eruptions on the sun, the flair and something occurring here at our actually. Scientifically one would think that that is the start of the beginning of understanding some aspects of space weather. So Carrington was an astronomer at night. And during the day he, he sketched sunspots and the how the story goes as he was sketching the sunspot it actually came out of focus for off and on any reworked hard to try to focus. It couldn't get it focused. Then he realized this. This is a real event I'm looking at right? So we ran all over the observatory looking for people to take them up to the telescope, but this was at eleven thirty and they were all out the launch. And so you know he had had discovered on his own. But fortunately, another astronomer also looking at the sun at the same spot sought to right. And so this is the beginning of the modern age of space weather. It's still to this day the the, the key event that everybody compares to when they talk about a big space weather event and the kinds of things that's based whether can do now..

A physicist who's been studying the sun, it's output in what we call space weather his whole career. Welcome, Alex. Oh, thank you. It's great to be here. You know, what do we mean when we use that term space, weather will space weather is this environment in the solar system. It's created by the sun and the energy and matter that it puts out in how it interacts with all. The bodies in the sodas and the planets and everything else you can think of. So it's like weather here on earth, things happen, and they happen they, the wind blows over us and there's wind in space and and so that's an interesting phenomenon. When you look out in space, you don't see that stuff. That's right. And so we have this sort of somewhat steady wind that's coming off the sun. We call the solar wind, and that's the sun's hot atmosphere which is streaming out in space. It carries away the sun's magnetic field. And sometimes we even get these explosions and huge almost like ce`namas that ride on top of the solar wind. And these are the more energetic phenomena that make up space weather. So these are things like flares and coronal Massey, Jackson's, right? So the sun has a very strong magnetic field and that magnetic field gets twisted up inside of it much like the way river bands get twisted. They have tension, they have pressure and sometime. Tmz, they get twisted enough and they snap, they snap violently releasing energy, a flash of light. We call a solar flare through the whole metro minute expect trim. And sometimes they spit out these huge blobs of material magnetic field. Those are called krono massive actions. And both of those can create shockwaves that excite particles to near relativistic speeds. So we get this storm of energetic particles in those are the kind of things those particles you can't see, but they certainly can affect everything that we do from our instruments on our spacecraft, but also for human exploration, not only on station, but when we go beyond low-earth-orbit exactly. And they are creating this very, very dynamic, but hazardous and hostile environment for humans out in space, but as well, all of our technology because all this stuff is electromagnetic. And so it interacts with. Technology, which is electric in nature. Alex, what's the worst solar flare you've ever seen from the missions you've been involved in while the biggest one that I know of it, it actually happens to be the biggest one that was ever recorded in the space. Age happened during a time period of about two weeks into Tober. Beginning of November we call the Halloween store was in two thousand and three. And one of those flares that occurred just as the the flaring region was rotating out of you on November fourth created, we call it x class flare in this one was off the charts. It was bigger than anything we'd ever seen. And in fact, our instruments couldn't even record. It's we had to estimate how big it really was someone, these flares takeoff, and they start accelerating particles. Does that happen in all directions or is it very directional while flares the the light itself is is not directional. It's pretty is a tropics. So, I mean, if you see it. Anywhere that region is visible Assan. You will see it, but the particles those are very directional, they they are created by jets. And that's actually this. Those particles are actually slamming into the sun, creating the light, and then they're streaming out in space. But those are very focused, you know that other phenomena you mentioned that coronal Massey, Jackson, what's? What's the worst CME you've ever seen? Well, the worst CME I've ever seen happens to be again, the biggest one we've seen in the space age on July twenty twelve. We had an event. We actually can happen on the side of the sign. It was caught by one of our other spacecraft stereo which are infect orbiting the sign. They're not looking from the earth facing direction, and we measured this at a phenomenal thirty, five hundred kilometers per second..

It was at this point in the evening that I told. Ryan Kaufman our engineer a couple? Of, walks. A couple of hit somebody Jackson right back in this thing well guess. What happened Domingo's Santana walked Christian Beth. In court singled and jet bandy did this the. One one pitch hi fly Abe center-field got a hold. Of this thing way back at the wall it is. Of here Baniyas done it a grand slam the. Sky SOX to within one, it's. Ten to nine Yeah the sky SOX came almost, all the way back it was a one run lead for the going into the top. Of, the ninth inning Quinton berry lead off the ninth with a pinch hit. Single he took second, on Dylan. More. Single but then a pair.
