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.

National Nonprofit Day with Hannah Hethmon
"Hey Paul this is Hannah Hessman August. Seventeenth is national nonprofit day. My favorite kind of nonprofits are museums. Of course, all our favourite museums are locked down right now struggling to get through this virus like the rest of us. So I thought we'd celebrate them a little and I challenge you on that note to find a great podcast created by a museum. Go. Well Hannah under most other circumstances, this would have been a minor challenge. But as it turns out, we have a mutual friend that has a podcast about museums and that same friend was my eighth guest on this show. For my first recommendation, I'm going with museum archipelago. When the host Ian Elsner was my guest I mentioned an old episode about the Apollo Eleven landing site. But I'm not going to take the easy way out and I'm going to suggest to newer and very relevant topic statues. In this episode and talks about the relationship statues and museums, he goes into the tearing down toward causton statue and one of his guests talks about the slippery slope. So to celebrate this National Nonprofit Day learn about a nonprofit consider donating time or money to one that you believe in and let us know using the National Nonprofit Day Hashtag. Today's guest is Hannah Hetman. Hannah's the writer and producer of the Vagina Museum podcast. Yes. You heard that correctly. In New York there is a sex museum which I've been to. In Iceland, there is a Pinas Museum which I haven't been to. And now there is a Johnny Museum which opened in London in two thousand and nineteen. The podcast. Liked the museum is all about smashing shame and stigma around the vagina through awareness education and route puns. The first and recommended episode is entitled. See you next Tuesday as in the letter C. and the letter, you would you like me to wait for you to figure it out. As most people know there are many terms for the vagina, but there is one that stands out as the most offensive if you still haven't figured it out, it starts with the letter C and ends would Tuesday? This episode answers a lot of questions about that specific word. For last recommendation Hannah recommends if people saw that slavery was getting started why didn't they stop it by Q. and Abe? She says and I quote. This podcast is produced totally in house by President Lincoln's cottage in DC. They take questions from their guests. They can't answer at the moment and die super deep into them with the help of historians to address big ideas in American history loosely connected to Abraham. Lincoln. Of course, but it's so much more than a podcast about Lincoln Unquote. For. Today's episode hot sauce. I'm going to relay on link that Hannah gave me. If I got stuck trying to find an episode related to this day. Hanna is the owner of better lemon creative audio that produces podcast for museums, history organizations, and cultural nonprofits. So check out the director she created that anyone can add to. Come back on August, twenty fifth where I'll be talking about close a topic I have no business talking about.
NASA Announces Plans To Launch Chimpanzee Into Sun
"NASA is once again looking to further our knowledge of the universe and the effects. It has on life here on earth, which is exactly why the Space Agency is announced. It is now planning to launch a chimpanzee into the sun within the next ten years. The science world is calling the efforts a crucial step forward in solar exploration and better understanding how species react to being deposited into the sons twenty seven million. Degree plasma core for more on this monumental mission were joined by Opie our science reporter Rebecca Neal. Hi. Leslie Rebecca. How does NASA plan on pulling this off? Well, I, spoke with Nastas lead on the mission Tom Danes and he told me that chimpanzee will be put in a capsule that will contain several sophisticated instruments that would monitor how the animal reacts as it plunges into a burning ball of gas eight, hundred sixty. Five thousand miles in diameter. Here's Danes with some more details. The heat sensors to the chimpanzees body will provide us with real time data about what he's experiencing is he's in by the Sun's gravity as a close biological relative to our species. We believe his skin will react similarly to the sons extreme heat and aggressive UV radiation, and hypothetically his body will disintegrate at a similar rate to human beans right and if. The mission is successful. Hopefully, what we learned from this mission will pave the way for sending human astronauts into the sun on a regular basis. So is the idea here that there could maybe one day be a permanent colony on the sun for humans to get launch to in evaporate and a hellish fire on a regular basis well, Dan said that is a long term goal, but I they need to monitor how the. Chimpanzee handles the sons, ten thousand degrees, surface right patients whose key. Now, this is a bold mission but not the first of its kind correct. That's right a mission like this has happened before but on a smaller scale, for example, on NASA's first attempt to land on the moon with Apollo Eleven, the agency strapped and unprotected duck to the side of the space shuttle the duck perished immediately upon takeoff which helped NASA. Stand the benefits of being inside the capsule as opposed to outside of it. When shooting towards space, they've also experimented with abandoning several elephants on Mars and sending a capsule full of turtles deep into the void of space to be consumed by a black hole. These have all been instrumental to the revolutionary undertaking NASA announced today definitely what are the chances of something going wrong? Well, space travel is inherently dangerous as many Americans. Still, remember several horses never even made it into orbit aboard the space shuttle Challenger but Danes told me that they plan on testing their launch model thousands of times to ensure that the chimpanzee reaches the Sun's core safely before anything goes wrong on its way there there's no have any idea who will be manning this mission to the SUN NASA is keeping its potential chimpanzee roster under wraps right now but sources tell. Me The leading candidate is a seven-year-old chimpanzee named Bobo currently taking up residence at Lincoln Park Zoo in Chicago. NASA

The Future of Education
"As students. Head back to classrooms and other countries schools are adapting in order to keep students safe in Taiwan. For example there are now plastic partitions around the desks of elementary school students during lunch the Australian government has asked more vulnerable staffers in their schools to work from home. If possible in Denmark Cafeterias are disappearing and students now eating their classrooms to avoid large gatherings. Now it's the United States turn to determine what must be done to open school safely. My colleague Evan. Mcmorris Doro has been covering the impact of the corona virus pandemic on the United States educational system. I talked with him about how and win students from pre K. To College Michael. Back to classrooms are people processing this the way that you'd expect or are they not believing that this is necessary. What are you hearing well? One of the wildest things about this whole time has been just how quickly that change had to happen so you know you think back to March. We're having a normal school year. But everything changed just so quickly. The best way I can think about describing it actually came from Lily Eskillson Garcia. Who's the president of the NEA? Which is the largest teacher's Union the United States? We're in the middle of tried to find the right metaphor. A lot of teachers have said. We're building the airplane. Well it's going down the runway. Another teacher said Oh. It's bigger than that. We're apollo thirteen. We're Houston and we have a problem and our kids are on that space ship with their parents. Isolated the efforts that go into a successful school. You're already massive. Right like the Moonshot we gotta get a crew to the moon and get them back but what happened. In this case was something went wrong along the way and actually made the job harder because all of a sudden it's not apollo eleven now it's apollo thirteen in which everything breaks down and then you have to use only the tools inside people's lives in their home lives to get education done. We think about that scene in the movie where they dumped that stuff on the conference table. Okay here's all the tubes and stuff and they have on the ship of kids. Listen we gotta find a way to make this fit into the whole for this using nothing but that well this is what they're talking about when it comes education all you have is the technology type people's houses. It's a very different kind of teaching two very different kind of education but the schools themselves in terms of doing what we count on schools to do. They were not prepared for this. Did you get any sense Evan? That they're starting to think about the fall right now. We hear about states reopening obviously all over the country and at the same time we hear. Maybe there's going to be another wave or this isn't going to really go away. Is the general sort of idea that schools will be back. Open the fall. Or what are you hearing? Well the difficulty for schools difficulty facing a lot of people which is that they have to take a long time to plan to. They're going to do next but we don't know what's going to happen next. So at baseline level. I can say this there will be schools open in the fall from the K. Through twelve level into the college level. What that looks like. We're not totally clear on few years ago for sixty minutes. I did this piece about the Khan Academy and they were making the case. I remember this years ago that There could be advantages to online learning. Are there advantages that this type of learning offers over bricks and mortar when we went to a full online system? What we learned was that we had problems with things like the education. Gap Education gathered already. Exists became much much more broad. I spoke to a teacher in. La Named Gannon's four. She can't even take attendance. Absence rates are high. We're dealing with it. The things we're dealing with some students whose parents still have to go to work and so being the oldest because I teach high school so a lot of them are having to take care of younger siblings. We do everything we can. We send emails and make phone calls and things like that so I think that we are definitely going to have a learning gap. We're going to see it in the next few years. We're going to have lower test scores. I think it's inevitable as part of your reporting if you've been talking to the students themselves I mean I'm I'm wondering what? How are they reacting to this adapting to this? The students are stressed out. We're hearing that from teachers. We're hearing that from parents and I think in my own conversation with the students themselves. I felt that same thing. There is an excitement. I think about something new at first as you've gone along with this thing you found that distresses just they? They want to go back to traditional school. I've not yet met a student who was like man. I would love to do school from my parents basement for the rest of my life. That's not something that I've heard. I think that that reflects my my kids attitudes as well although I will tell you. It's Funny Evan. Maybe not surprising when this first started. I said we're still going to maintain a schedule. You'RE GONNA GET UP. You'RE GONNA shower. You'RE GONNA brush your teeth. You know the basic stuff and now if they can roll out of bed and get to their laptop in time. It's it's sometimes asking to WanNa work in our sweatpants. They can definitely go to school. Sweatpants right one. One thing that we are seeing is is that some schools are reopening You know in Montana for example and I'm wondering how are they approaching it? What are they doing there? Are there lessons? I guess for for the rest of the country because Montana is a state very different from more populous states. They had these really small schools in these really small school districts. One of them is Willow Creek School. Which is has sixty kids in it. It's a town of two hundred and fifty people about and sixty kids. The Superintendent and the principle of Willow Creek is named Bonnie Lower and what she described was the school day. Very different than what we're used to. We have six foot distant marks on the playground so that they can play games at recess and save six feet away from each other and we will alternate our bell schedule so that kids are not in the hallways at the same time. Common areas are being disinfected regularly. Every classroom has hand sanitizer wipes teachers have masks. So if they're in a student's bubble they put the mass on. They'll there's a lot of precautions. Bathrooms will be used one at a time. We're ready to get back to normal as normal as we can and even the arrival school is very different so they've had to reduce bus schedule so a lot of parents are dropping their kids off and then once the kids get to school are led into the building by an adult one by one and before they go in their temperature is taken. There's no more luncheon cafeterias so they are in the building but the school day looks very very different and these are the kind of things that we may see in schools across the country when they reopened. This is the challenge. The challenge is how to try to do social distancing in something that was never designed for that. We've all been forced to evaluate risk differently. I mean the truth is that we all take risks on a daily basis. Getting in a car and driving is one of the riskiest things that we typically do. And there's a lot of people who say well a kick ball and then somebody touched that I touched it with my hands and then I touched my eyes. My nose my mouth something like that. What are the chances of me really getting infected? And it's still very hard. I think for for public health officials to answer that question but I think what they'll typically come back to is at the answer is that the risk is low but it's not zero. I spoke with a rising college freshman from Minnesota who are trying to plan on what schools he was. GonNa go to and the college campuses are out there right now advertising. Look we're going to reopen. We don't know how we're going to try to make say we're GONNA change the way dorms work classes. Whatever what they really have to try to convince people that they can create a safe environment. I asked this kid. This is an eighteen year old kid. I said look if they open a college campus right now would you go and he said no right now. I would not maybe in August. Maybe if I could be convinced that things were safe but right now I'm not ready to go. So there's there's a difference in how people take that risk and feel about the risk factors and feel about how things are going on that. Maybe you have a situation where these elementary school students in Montana. Their parents are feeling like look. This is a worthy risk. Will take you know. We'll see how it goes but doesn't work. We'll just shut things down again and it's not that big a deal and on

Predicting the 2020 Oscars The Big Picture
"The time has come to predict the Ninety First Academy Awards. Amanda how are you feeling about this. I feel terrible as always I just. It's being wrong in public. It's my number one least least favorite thing. It's even worse than being wrong in private. We will closely tally. All of your failures on Oscar night. Because I'll be tweeting at you directly every time you get a choice wrong and then we'll also be rehashing. Those wrong choices here on the big picture live immediately. After the telecast which. I'm really excited about on Sunday night but before that we do you have to We have to pay it to the prediction. Gods and we're GonNa go through all twenty four categories here. Yes we are now. I'd like to preface that by saying as I worm my way through the back nine of illness. My voice may go at any moment here. In which case you're GONNA have to really carry the load cliff booth style okay. I was going to say that. That's just a good summation of Oscar season and at some point to talk myself out and officer does flailing filing in the dark possibly in silence. We're we're we're just trying to get to the finish line. I am hopeful that this will not be an immensely boring. podcast about predicting the Oscars because the Oscars may be boring. I will say this is by far far the easiest year in the history of my life predicting these awards okay. You know what. It's nice that you have confidence does not this and in life. Yes it is now that means okay. That means I couldn't logically see making any other choice that doesn't mean I feel that I am right okay about I guess I feel feel the same way. There were more categories that I could kind of fill in but I there are still so many to get wrong. It's just an opportunity to get things wrong. I can't had over emphasized how much I hate that. Feeling when you would finish an exam in ninth grade at the end of it when you and your classmates your little amend etes would would gather route and chat at the at the cafeteria table would you say. Would you be the person who would say. Oh my God I failed so bad. I didn't know anything. I failed. No okay okay no because I find that obnoxious and also because I had to have like my personal confidence that I was still going to defeat all of them. Were you sitting alone like a sociopath at the cafeteria table. No okay. I had some friends but I don't know we just talked about cross country or something. Well that sounds riveting okay. Let's go back to the Academy Awards. which which is the reason for this podcast? We're GONNA start at the beginning and at the place that we sort of blasphemed earlier on the show which is with shorts. I thought we were respectful. I I want people to go back. And listen and hear what we were saying which is not that they should be cut from the show and not that shorts aren't deserving but it is a different French exercise and I just think the it was interesting to try to get into the mind of what these winners would be because I think you're evaluating on different terms because it's a different type of film so let's just make a separate thing for the shorts and let everybody have their moment philosophically I agree. It's one of the few things about the sort of workaday nature of the Oscars that you and I ultimately agree on. There are three different categories for the shorts. There is best documentary short subject. Best Live Action Short film and Best Animated. We'll start with best documentary short subject. A very few people have seen these movies. I've seen some of them. I'm not going to pretend like I've seen all fifteen. Nominees Germany's shorts category. I just haven't I haven't had the time and I'm a bad person. I have had her but I have seen some of them I've seen some of them as well feel solid about. My choices will run through the the nominees for this first category in the absence by using John and Gary Byung Cam learning to skateboard in a war zone by Carol dicing her life overtakes me by Christine Samuelson. And John. Hatice Saint Louis Superman by Sri Mantra and sign ECON and walk run cha-cha by Lord. I think the overwhelming favorite favored in categories learning to skateboard in a war zone. As my pick that is awesome attack we can move on directly from there. Okay well I just don't think we should really make an attempt to talk about the quality control of these categories stories because we're just not the experts if you expertise are actually a ton of great pieces. I was reading some stuff on wire this week. About which of these shorts are serving which are not. There's a lot of great writing about the shorts. We respect the filmmakers acres. who made the shorts? It's not Medi Best Live Action Short Film Brotherhood by Mariam. Jabbour Nafta football club by the neighbors burs wooden window by Marshall Curry Saria by Bryan Buckley or sister by Delfin Gerard. I'm going with the neighbors Wendo. I want with Brotherhood. Okay that is the that's the oddsmakers favorite Brotherhood is. Yes yes so do you. Is there a reason why you you may may change. Because the neighbor's window is is the oddsmakers like upset favorite. What is that called? When it's the there's a favorite and then the underdog I guess so spoiler well in a group of five I was wondering anyway? It's number two and I think it's been in the conversation it's and it is accessible and and I just really do feel like especially people who are voting on these are sometimes just clicking through and being like oh I guess like this one I like to football club too and I feel like that has a chance I wouldn't wouldn't rule that out yet We'll have to wait and see. The oddsmakers are usually right in the shorts categories but it can't be guaranteed because these are highly unpredictable predictable because unlike a lot of the other words. We'll talk about here. There are not a lot of guild awards that predict these words. This is really the only three categories in which we have no no data to present ahead of what you know sort of what is leading the race. What is leading the charge? So we're flying blind quite a bit. which part of the reason why we're not gonNA spend too much time analyzing final category Gorriak shorts animated short To Sarah by Doria Kusturica hair. Love Matthew. Cherry Kit Bowl by Rosanna Sullivan memorable memorable by Bruno. Colette sister by CK Song Hair. Love is far and away. The favourite yes in this category. Matthew Cherry is very active twitter user. A lot of people know oh him used to work for Jordan Peele and monkey productions is a very short. I will be surprised this one out of all three. I would be the most surprised if it didn't win. I also picked love and it made me cry and under four minutes very effective I two can respond to animated films. Wow Yeah Erica. An incredible transition to our next category best animated animated feature the nominees are how to train your dragon the hidden world. I lost my body clause missing link and toy story for what did you go with. This was a last minute change and I. I don't know whether I should admit this. And the podcast bobby. Cut this if I'm breaking a Balazs but I haven't been advising a close best friend of mine on possible bets possible upsets and close friend. Yeah no it's it's a friend. The you know a friend who listens to the podcast and identified this category. I did go toy story for because I'm trying not to over. Think things but it does seem like it seems like there could be several no spoilers. Actually there's a lot of arrows pointing at clause right now. Yeah clause just won a BAFTA clause one Annie Award Clauses clearly admired tired. Mommy animating filmmaking community I don't WanNa Toy Story. Movies went to movies. Come out. That was kind of my reasoning toy story. Three was nominated for best picture which feels like a thousand years ago but this is truly one of the most storied movie franchises ever. This sounds like a silly thing to say about a toy story movie but it is a fact there have and four films are hugely successful. The characters are beloved ingrained in popular culture. And I genuinely think toy story. Four is very very very good animated film and might might mark the end of a certain period of Pixar because not just the machinations that have happened over the years with Disney but obviously all of the sort of incredibly fraught stuff. That's happened with John. LASSETER over the years in the development stage for these movies. It's just if you look at the Pixar movies that are coming There are a lot of new properties and there are a lot of new voices that are getting to make those movies toy story. Four is old school tried and true early. Two Thousand Steve Jobs Era Pixar. That's where it comes from and and I think they're going to recognize that we could be wrong. We're GONNA find out we're both going to a story for best documentary feature the nominees. Are American factory. The Cave you've the edge of democracy foursome and honey land. What did you choose? I chose American factory as that. I'm not feeling confident. I'm not either but I wanted to die on this hill because I love this film. We gave this film best picture we really did Alternate Oscars about that this morning and I was so happy. What a lovely little title space? That was where we just got to talk about the things we liked terrifically. Well made movie. I think All of the movies in this category are are well-made. I shouldn't be surprised by how overwhelmingly serious every film is in this category every year and how issues oriented a lot of these films are it's been interesting to see. I thought when the nominations were announced honeywood play spoiler spoiler the fact that it has representation in this category and also in the next category. We're GONNA talk about. It's just unusual. That's never happened before. And so that shows a lot of support for that movie. I thought that would play spoiler over the last couple of months. Foam seems to be gaining steam for some just one at the Baptist over the weekend. We'll have to wait and see my my choices also American factory. This is part of what I mean here about saying. This was an easy choice to make because it seems like a logical choice. It's an American story. Also International Scott Got Barack Obama's thumbprint on it which I think is key weirdly meaningful. You know we. We never talked about Kobe. Bryant's passing on the show and I don't think there's a ton of reason to but obviously. Kobe was an Oscar winner. And you know some people love his film but it was a lot easier to understand his film in the purposes of his film that won best animated short. I think it's called your basketball because this was connected to Kobe. Bryant and I think people will actually look at American factory and think of Barack Obama and correlate in the same way like that is how this business works in many ways. So I'm going American factory if you told me Any of these films were GonNa win. I genuinely would not be suppressed. Don't don't bet on this category advice this category also just the nominations itself were a bit of surprise is because Apollo eleven which had been so dominant at so many awards coming up to the nominations is not included. One Nation was also in the mix and is not included so it could go a lot of different ways and I guess my strategy throughout is has been to play it safe to go with the most obvious choice and that's important because it's been like a pretty obvious yes award season thus far but we could easily be wrong. The Oscars always has a couple of surprises as it always does now. I would prefer if those surprises happened in some of the later categories and then some of the earlier categories for the sake of national entry but in all likelihood this year they're going to come in categories like this let's go to best international feature a category will not have any surprises whatsoever. The five nominees are Corpus. Christi Honey Land Les Miserables Painting Glory Parasite Yes parasite will win this award. Award parasite is a winner. This is the not the last time. We'll talk about parasite on this podcast. We can continue to go forward great visual effects. This is the category that I like to call. Sean doesn't know anything I think I get this wrong every year. That's because you always pick marvel movies and they've never WANNA love moral. Yeah congratulations not not Without some questioning questions some of their choices and frankly their visual effects are sometimes not. I've never good

Skylab: NASA's Best-Kept Secret
"Fifty years ago. America's space program achieved its greatest triumph danced when Apollo eleven put the first men on the moon by the Apollo program was a remarkable success story but is NASA was sending men to the moon they were engaged in another less celebrated project one even more important than the moon landing to humanity's potential future in space that project was called Skylab America's space station chances chances are you've never heard of Skylab. If you know anything at all about it you know that after it was launched into orbit it came crashing back down to Earth but before that crash Skylab Skylab taught NASA more things about living and working in space than any program before it so why then did one of the engineers who worked on Skylab once call call it the quote little red headed bastard out behind the barn why do so many accounts of Nastase achievements barely mention it why have most Americans never heard rid of America's first space station. This is the story of Skylab. Now says best kept secret. It's October nineteen sixty six five years before the deaths of the soil used eleven cosmonauts at the Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville Alabama Alan beam arrives for his first day on a new job instead of his usual blue flight suit the thirty thirty four year old Texan whereas a blazer and tie he's been named the first chief astronaut for something called the Apollo applications program or a AP but he's not happy about it like every other NASA astronaut being wants one job more than any other to go to the moon he at least wants to get into space but at Apollo applications. There's a slim chance he'll get do either. It's a research development program away for NASA approved at the expense of hardware and technology of its lunar missions could be used for other purposes somewhere down the line way way down the line. Most a projects aren't expected to fly for years. If ever as far as bean's concerned he's been grounded still being tries to walk into martial with an open mark. Maybe A P isn't as bad as his fellow astronauts back in Houston. Say It is. He's heard that they're working on a space station. That sounds like it could be pretty neat. Eat beans first meeting is with Marshall's director a German rocket scientist named Verner von Braun. He's the genius behind the towering Saturn rockets that will send the Apollo astronauts to the moon before that he built deadly V two ballistic missiles from the Nazis during World War Two bean Anna's half expecting him to look like Colonel Klink from Hogan's heroes with a monocle dramatic scowl but he's a charismatic bear of a man with thick grey streaked hair and the only trace of an accent welcome new tenant being. Please call me out. It's a pleasure to meet you sir. The pleasure is all mine. Let me give you a tour marshalls. Russia's buildings are huge massive hangars built for housing one hundred forty foot long rocket stages and all the equipment needed to assemble them in the corner of one building. Something catches beans. I is that a lunar landing module. Yes but it's not going to the moon. It's been modified to house a solar observatory. We're calling it the Apollo Hello Telescope Mount. That's pretty neat. Where's the telescope still in development by one of our contractors ball brothers research ball brothers the same company Mason Jars the very same they've designed many solar telescopes for unmanned satellites but we believe that a manned telescope can gather much better images ages and and more detailed data behind one of the hangars von. Braun's shows being a water filled pit the size of backyard swimming pool an engineer in a flight suit climbs out of it small lead weights dangled from his belt and boots bean realizes that they're using this pool as a primitive zero gravity simulator me later. I didn't know you fellas at a neutral buoyancy tank well technically we're not supposed to but the boys decided to build one in their spare time. Let's just keep its existence between us for now. Houston may not be happy to know that we're getting into astronaut training be knows what von Braun means until recently Marshall the only designed what NASA calls launch vehicles in other words rockets von Braun convinced NASA higher up still at marshalls start building manned vehicles as part of Ah p but some at the manned spacecraft center back in Houston felt he was invading their turf to appease Houston. NASA decided to keep all astronaut training. They're not at Marshall but it makes sense to being why Marshall would need to have its own onsite training even if it's not officially sanctioned your secret's safe with me Doctor. What else have you got to show me. I saved our best for last fund. Brown leads being into an empty hangar. Several men are standing around some in white lab. Coats others in blue flight suits being recognized as some of them as science astronauts a new set of recruits who haven't flown yet but are being trained to accompany me pilot astronauts on future missions. Several of them are drawing on the concrete floor with white pieces of chalk. An engineer is arguing with an astronaut. We need need more room for the science experiments fine but where are we supposed to sleep being doesn't understand what he's looking at. What is this Dr Von Braun. Its plans for our orbital workshop. We're still hashing out the floor plan orbital workshop. You mean a space station. Yes has been nothing quite that ambitious. The entire thing thing will be assembled inside an empty Saturn four B rocket stage. Our budgets here are limited. We have to make the best of whatever's available. I hope you enjoyed your tour sure lieutenant bean now. If you'll excuse me being can't quite believe everything he's just heard and seen a telescope designed by Mason Jar Company. A renegade astronaut training tank a chalk outline representing a space station back in Houston. They like to joke that a AP. AP really stands for almost a program after von Braun's tour. That description seems pretty accurate but after a couple of months on the job being begins to enjoy himself he likes scrappy atmosphere at Marshall Von. Braun encourages his engineering teams to experiment find creative ways to get the most out of shoestring you string budgets and leftover parts from the Apollo Lunar Program being has a degree in aeronautical engineering himself so he appreciates the problem solving that goes into figuring figuring out how to launch the space station sorry orbital workshop the size of a small house he also gets a kick out of practicing maneuvers in the neutral buoyancy tank the concept behind it as simple but carefully distributing lead weights around a diving suit. You can get it to where the person in the tank neither rises nor sinks but floats it just as they would in zero gravity. It's perfect for testing procedures that are simple on solid ground with more challenging in space like unscrewing a bolt from hatch which one afternoon in the tank. That's what being is trying to unscrew a bolt twenty. It's easier said than done in zero gravity hurt cottrill buoyancy. Everything's dictated by Newton's third law of motion for every action. There's an equal and opposite reaction so every time being tries to turn his ranch is body starts twisting away in the other direction an engineer watching from above communicates through a breathing tube attached to beans helmet doing down there. It's harder than it looks almost got it though he breaks his one foot against the side of the tank and turns harder under the effort nearly sends him head over heels but it works the bolt is finally turning got it a little son of a gun. He's so engrossed in what he's doing doing that. At first he doesn't notice the safety divert helping him on the shoulder. He turns and sees a look of panic on the diver's face than a telltale string of bubbles rising up from his own suit shoulder. He's sprung a leak. Instinct kicks in bean tries to swim to the surface but he's wearing nearly seventy pounds of lead weights. It's there's no chance he can swim his way out. The safety diver tries to pull him to a ladder but it's too late. Water is collecting inside being suit dragging dragging him to the bottom being called out through his breathing tube to the surface on leaking fellas but don't worry of a plan. He lets the water in his suit. pull him to the bottom of the tank. Then with some effort he walks to the ladder and hauls himself up the safety diver follows and helps them pull off his boots to drain the water from suit. That was close. You Okay al I'm fine fine but hey does. Houston still not know you guys have this tank is it might be a good idea to tell them before you drown your first astronaut in January nineteen sixty seven. AARP has gone from almost a program into an actual program. The Apollo Telescope Mount once envision as its own separate spacecraft gets combined with the orbital workshop to make one on single massive space station plans take shape for science and medical experiments testing the human body's response to extended stays in is zero gravity marshalls engineers developed new methods for storing and preparing food and disposing of voiced the even finally get the budget to build a bigger NASA sanctioned neutral buoyancy tank. A tentative launch date for the station is set June nineteen sixty eight. The first crew demand it. We'll stay up for twenty eight days twice. As long as anyone's ever spent in space being grows cautiously optimistic. Maybe the space station it really will fly and he'll be the one who gets to fly 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.

The Future of Australia's Space Industry
"Well we have the apollo eleven celebrations behind us. We have our own australian space. Agency set up by making clock so what's next today we take the sign show to the world science festival in brisbane with an expert panel who know how you can have asteroids containing tanning more minerals like iron and the rest than even remain in the earth's crust and who understand how water mind in space can be worth millions but what's the potential there so many surprises including their own space history so off we go to so you're in space. It's been part of a human journey into space into strata. I began space tracking in nine hundred fifty seven but in the end suing years while seventy four other nations including new zealand indonesia formed space agencies australia did not for decades among o._e._c._d. Countries only australia and iceland did not have a dedicated headed space agency australia's group that counted luxembourg motor and vatican city among its members but in may two thousand eighteen the government budgets did about twenty six point five million dollars which was allocated to the newly formed australian space agency and on may the fourteenth got another fifteen million to kick start things the three part program today. We'll look at the past history australia's role in space. Take a deep dive into the forces that formed the new a._s._a. And examine the visionary science settled propel our nation into the future space travel in two thousand nine hundred and beyond and so chapter one we're going to start by looking at australia's impact on space travel by getting a history lesson from an independent space historian curator and writer and a lecturer in the space humanities department of the international space university. She's a member of the international academy of astronautics and also serves on the international astronautical federation space education and outreach committee and its space societies and museums committee so please welcome tom historian and author of the book australia in space kerrie dougherty okay yeah i rocket when thomas brisbane came out did he average rookies with sent home so when we're fish walkers well. It's an interesting story. I probably not was a._a. Champion adelaide in the eighteen seventies called frederick haslam and he actually developed an improved risky rocca for maritime rescues but sadly an a story we hear over and over again the south australian government locked like the idea but they didn't want to spend the money on it and so his development was never adopted ended. I rockets when they happened. Go up in woomera yeah seeing the rocket range inch or the township and it was originally created actually for testing long range british missiles back in the late nineteen forties what that meant though was that come from the late nineteen fifty s when the space age began you had the right concentration of skills and experience from tracking missiles that could be used to track rockets and satellites satellites and his first sounding rocket which is not a rocket that can put a satellite into orbit but can go very high up into the atmosphere to carry scientific instruments intruments. That's long term. He was called named after one of the senior people. We're who apparently was very tool so when he was the boss of the guys who developed at so they thought they'd better named after him to destroy play in that early period tracking and so on one of our major roles was actually in space tracking and even before nasa existed the united states had put a couple of tracking stations in for the first satellite and from there we began to cover all the different types of missions that nasa developed after it was created in fifty eight so we had tracking stations deep space missions tracking stations orbital missions and tracking stations for human spaceflight missions and that began with the mercury project for those of you who remember john glen.
