Space Tourism Blasts Off

"The world has been buzzing about space lately as more and more rockets take off from our planet but the latest launches aren't from governments or organizations that you used to like nasa instead. Several billionaires and their companies have gotten into a bit of a space race on july first richard branson who owns space company. Virgin galactic became the first person to get to space in a rocket that he funded cool ends on july twenty first amazon founder. Jeff bezos flew a few miles higher than branson and a rocket called new shepherd nice. Each flight was about ten minutes long. Both virgin galactic and bezos company. Blue origin have stated that. They're looking to popularize space tourism. But right now they're charging big bucks for the privilege. Virgin is currently charging two hundred fifty thousand dollars a seat and while blue origin. Tickets aren't opened for the public to buy yet. One of bazo seat meets ponied up. Twenty eight million dollars for the first ride. These flights represents a new era for space travel. But they've also been controversial. Critics have questioned the amount of money being spent on this endeavor instead of donating to causes and solving problems here on earth especially in the midst of a pandemic but besides being joyrides for the rich and famous experts. Say that these space vehicles could one day have something to offer the science world. Scientists who want to conduct experiments in low. Gravity haven't been able to go aboard flights at all. The ships are unmanned bummer. That could change in the future scientists. Hope that they could study questions. Like how living things respond to the move from. Gravity to

"branson" Discussed on Main Engine Cut Off

"And i guarantee you. That's the case today that there's a college intern. There's a twenty something working at virgin galactic or blue origin. And they're gonna go on and they're going to run a company that i'm talking about in thirty years on this podcast. And i'm a big proponent of the fact that companies don't have experience or expertise people do the people working there have the experience and expertise and they will go somewhere else and they will spread that so whatever they're working today is feeding into what they're working on tomorrow and that's the stuff that really matters so looking forward. I'm gonna be a lot less concerned about how much money someone paid to do a flight and more about. How frequently can these companies fly. How regular can they make. It seem what can they cut out of the training to get down to a quicker less resource-intensive process between signing up and flying. What can they do to make progress in that way and to make everyone else in the world. Find it a little less weird. You're flying into space today now. The last thing. I'm curious about is to compare this past week or two that we've experienced and look towards the end of the year the beginning next year when we see flights like inspiration for axiom one the first couple of orbital missions in this era that are tourist focused s- I want to see what the coverage is like around them. We won't have the the culture war flashpoint of branson bezos. We will have a billionaire too involved. But they're not the kinds that you know spark a lot of the culture war stuff. Is these do so. Will the messaging change at all. There will the reactions change. Will less people care. Because nobody's heard of jared isaac until this point and you and i have but has you know my friend that was talking to me about this space flight last tuesday probably not so. I'm curious to compare the reactions. And the relative way that it's accepted amongst mass media compared to these ones that's a topic for another show so we will get back to that. But for now that i've got for you. Thank you so much for listening. Thanks to all your support as always over at managing cut dot com slash sport.

The End of DACA?

"So if you're someone who is a dreamer right now who does not have daca. You can have daca right. Is that correct. Yeah i think like in the most basic of census right like that is probably the interpretation that most folks are walking away. And if you know you're an outsider. Meaning that you don't have or you're trying to essentially figure something out that might just be the simplest way to look at it but for the people who are in the process of applying for dhaka for the first time right they are seeing a lot of very specific questions that have quite just been answered right. Judge heynen though federal judge in the southern district of texas who has been essentially overseeing a variety of different cases on this subject as made no secret that he's not a fan of the daca program so people need to understand that first and foremost number two his ruling basically states that new applicants as you mentioned julio people who are in the process of applying for dhaka for the first time short of them being fully approved into the program will no longer be eligible for the program. What exactly does that mean. May the young daca applicant. Who says well. I sent in my application. It was received. I gotta biometrics appointment. This is where they go and take your finger branson that take a photo and all this jazz. You know i did dad. I haven't heard back from you. If my application going to be considered is gonna be frozen.

Where abiding by the court order. There will be more guidelines following up. So i i actually have it up on my phone because i tweeted out and it's interesting because let me just break this down because it says i'm rita and this came out on july nineteenth and i'm glad you brought it up because i was kind of like my next question but let's let's give the people some context. This is the giving people some context portion of the show so basically they say you know based on the order issued by the us district court for the southern district of texas and texas.

"Then I have another lovely example of, you know, a child very much taking what they need and knowing what they need. And, and I had this little guy in Iraq and this was ages ago, but he, you know, he had come in and was it was pretty obvious that it was kind of an insecure attachment. So a lot of distress with new people and unable to leave home side. You know, very much stuck to her. Glue, you know, wouldn't move with it were moving and so we, we did a lot of work around that move. Eventually got into sections that are owned and in one of our sessions, he walked over to to my books cuz they helped him quite load off the kitty ones. And he picked up the one. What is it called? A little babies? You come across that one. I haven't. I'm writing it down though. I will babies and I will, I hope you ma'am. Let me grab the the order so it's a really beautiful and yeah, it's called our babies and it's by Martin waddle. And it's illustrated by Patrick Ben Branson. Now it's a relatively old book. I got a second-hand version on Amazon but he picked this up off and the story is is basically about one night. These three baby owls. Wake up and Mom has gone. Okay. And they're, they're in the dark and they're they're in a forest and it's nighttime and and the three babies react very differently. But the youngest is is distraught and very worried and very much just cries out for Mom throughout the book. And and then, of course, mom eventually comes back after they try to comfort each other and, and do all sorts of things. Mom comes back. And I just love her reaction cuz she comes back. And she says, what's all the fuss? You know, she could come back and I remember, he picked up this book, and I read it to him. And he kind of looked at me, when I finished, she looked up at me and looked at the back of the little baby. And put his hand over the smallest owl and then just closed the book and put it back on the Shelf. But that will him, you know, he's, he's not baby owl, you know, as soon as this goes upstairs in high circles, the bathroom work goes to work. He's worried the whole time, you know, where's mom wears?

"This morning in a remote part of the west texas desert the world richest man amazon founder. Jeff bezos plans to take off for a trip to space. It's the first space flight with passengers on board for his company. blue origin. Now if you were paying attention nine days ago another billionaire. Richard branson took a flight to space with his company virgin. Galactic bezos is flight will be a little different in how it launches and where the passengers will go. But the difference is don't stop there. They extend to the goals and ambitions of both companies and to discuss that. We have a reporter mike. Berg who covers the business of space for the wall street journal back on the show. I'm mike thanks for joining us again so nine days ago you were in new mexico watching the virgin galactic flight with richard branson launch. Now you're in texas for the blue origin launch. What are some of the differences you expect to see when this flight takes off. Yeah i mean the biggest difference just sort of visually blue origin uses a rocket to get the space. We're going to see literally the new scheffer rocket flare up into at very high speeds into space. And then you know we won't see this but a capsule detach and float into space and then the rocket will return to the launch pad. Virgin galactic of course uses a different method. They've got a kind high-flying airplane that flies up. You know the way you would see at an airport and the space craft the virgin galactic spacecraft attached to the rocket detaches at about forty five thousand feet and then it sort of rockets up into space from there. So you'll literally see the

While blue origin has flown fifteen unmanned test flights this will be the first to carry passengers. Bazo will take seat number six the simulator. An exact replica of the capsule that will carry all four sixty two miles high for three minutes of weightlessness and six massive windows. As you're essentially it feels like the earth is falling away from you to your window. Exactly like richard branson's virgin galactic. Paying passengers are already signing up eventually blue origin plastics and six passengers at a time into space from this launch pad and the west texas desert but unlike a nasa rocket or the virtual space plane. There are no professional astronauts or pilots on board. It is all controlled from the ground. Blue origin insist. The ship is loaded with safety backups.

"Of different things to do. You're always trading though. Let's get right up to date prospect now of dozens more amateurs so to speak going into space with Got you've worked with of course With jeff bezos is program. Because some richard branson elon. Musk as well all planning to take people into space. It's going to cost a lot of money. Let's leave that aside. But he's that an age cutoff for certainly physical cutoff. That would not allow people to do that. You have to be in in certain medical condition to be able to go through an experience like that. For example you know you don't want to have a significant heart problem or something like bats. But you know medically a lot of people who've qualified to go as what we call spaceflight participants that is astronauts. It's number of people have signed up and flown with the russians for a week or so on the international space station at great expense but You know they have to go through several months of training. They have to spend a lot of time in russia learning a few words of russian and then learning their systems and basically how to take care of themselves. You know how to put your pressure suit on how to take it off. You know what to do in an emergency situation which is mostly you know. Don't touch anything and listen to the commander right. So it's it's not the same as getting on a commercial airliner for example but at the same time you're not trained to a professional level. You're not expected to be what we call required crew member for flight operations. So you're more or less a little more than just a passenger but certainly not a fully trained professional three to one release release release clean release ignition. Good rocket motor burn. Let's talk about it but asked space and sky high dreams space is now moving away from space exploration going into space leaving slightly away from from being at the state level now to being very rich man. Yeah i think in most of our lifetimes it's been about scientists and nasa and those very exciting very remote worlds of space exploration and bits of kit that we can't even imagine how they working and now it feels that it is very different. It's a very different crowd of people running. It certainly does billionaires you. Mentioned are the ones with their hands. All over this fifty seconds approaching mach three. I'm greg milem. I'm a. Us correspondent for sky news and sixty seconds and that is full. Duration burn folks. We are headed to space and the passengers in the back watching the virgin galactic launch. I think it was a very significant moment. That this stuff is actually real. It's actually happening is actually going to be in our lifetimes whether any of us can afford to do it of course is a different matter. Richard branson's being outed longer than the others. Seventeen years or so since richard branson. I announced his ambitions. Two thousand four. When virgin galactic was started. I think back then the intention walls within three or four years. They be doing what they've only just done now of of taking passengers into space but for him dates back and he. He talks about this a lot. Doesn't it back to nineteen sixty nine and watching the moon landing a teenager. We choose to go to the moon and and do the other thing not because they are easy being taken outside by his dad and the pointing up at the moon and realizing there were two men up there east folks at one of those men buzz aldrin in the nineties and and talked about the idea of using plane rather than a traditional rocket as so. The idea is been fermenting for a long time lot of setbacks on the way of course. I think a lot of us wonder whether this would ever happen. He's proved he can do it. And i think that for him is why this is so emotionally significant but also practically significant in a business sense as well. Let's go through the others then we go elon. Musk of tesla. Fame with space. X.'s dragon capsule and he's the best known for his space ambitions around the world. Think just because of his global profile that he has and has had a lot of success with the commercial side of this deals with nasa of taking things up into orbital space which of course is much further than branson or some of the tourism operations are going and has talked in perhaps much greater ambition. About what could be done. He's talked about colonizing mars. Easy said he wants to go to mars. he's also said people might die. Going to mars but ambitions seemed to be much bigger and grander than just space tourism. And someone who through his life has solve the big problems as he's seen them around the world and this is one he sees that needs to be solved by the private sector. Then making up the triumvirate. Jeff bezos of amazon fame. What of his ambitions. what's his rocket. Program is interesting isn't because he there's far less publicity with with. Jeff bezos a blue origin. The company that will take him into space has been around for twenty years so longer than branson's virgin galactic but his plans all rooted much further back than that he he talks of colonizing space of building these holds where trillions of people can live something. It's thought he took from a professor. He had at princeton physicist. Who came up with his idea in the seventies so he has these grand ambitions that pass. He doesn't talk about as much as richard branson alone. Musk but which are very rooted in in history and clearly having left amazon this is now his focus on taking humans where they where they've not come before okay where we've got the ambitions and of course they've got the resources to do it. Why are they doing it. I think a bit a lot of it is about ego or they genuinely investing in. Humanity's future i guess only they could say if this is purely ego and when you look at some of the the machinery involved some people will think that this is about this race between billionaires. They talk about it in in a way. There's much more about it. Being much more honorable they talk about the fun and the experience of doing this of of looking back and seeing the earth but on the honorable bit. They think they're saving the planet. Richard branson talks about looking back at the earth realizing what it is we need to cherish and preserve and encouraging people therefore to take more care of the planet belong. Musk talks about malls being plan. B for humanity which is a pretty depressing outlook. I guess that we may need to go somewhere. If we ruin what we've got down here and as also talked about looking for resources and energy with these colonies out in space so those are the big picture things i think. Sunday richard branson. There's money to be made out of this. It's a business. they believe. There's a demand there's a focus on hypersonic travel point to point. Travel that if if this all works out with virgin galactic and as a business that does well. that's the next stage so. I think that there's a lot going on in in why they're doing this and and very different reasons amongst all three of them greg's tricky question this one but what actually is paste. Sounds very nice. Well you know. I'm asking you philosophical question here. But what on earth cancer's going into space. Because you know. Richard branson was in commas flying on the edge of space. now clearly. Mars is in space. The moon is in Satellites in space was richard branson actually in space. I'm glad you're not asking the philosophical question. It's a question. I didn't know existed. Really i think until covering the virgin galactic launch Richard branson went up fifty three miles from the surface of the earth that by the definition of nassar and parts of the. Us government is in space. When he came back he was given the sycamore wings that denote him and the rest of the crew was being astronauts over him. That's good enough. It's looked like space from where i was Viewing those pictures. But there's a thing called the common line which internationally is regarded as being the edge of space sixty two miles up. I think the most people's minds and various international organizations. They're both space the experts say. There's very little practical difference. Bunch up there. You're weightless you look back at the earth but it certainly played a part in some of the banter between the blue origin team and the virgin galactic team as to whether branson really was going.

"Audio. I said you showed us last week. There was a complete blank. Look as last week. That's that's just resolvable high. Yeah photos of wonderful beautiful degraded last week's dizzy. Remember now yes. I do sell. So they're there. yes that was. That was great. So in addition to that i have like thirty to fifty wifi devices in. All of them are geared to making our lives too little bit easier a little bit more voice controlled mostly voice controlled. I'll be honest so it tailed in this post everything in my smart home. I'm going to just condense a lot of this and say most of it is running on either an echo and amazon echo or a one of a series of google assistant devices. So i don't have any homekit. Kevin does the home kit stuff. I that's that's important to note we. We split that up because otherwise it's just too much In most of my automations are around lights and a couple around locks that i'd like to get better at that. So i have four different sets of light kind of things i have. Why smart outlets lucianne switches and lutron albit philips hue bulbs and banana leaf stuff. Just thinking through yes. Oh advise light bulbs so those four ecosystems are might lights and i have clump them all together using rooms or wet in the amazon and the google apps. So that's most of this stuff and then there's my boring stuff like i have a fin water monitoring device that. Check my house for leaks. I have an quanta which is on my water heater and it says things like hey if you take your water heater temperature down. You could save energy. It also does things like it has a sensor attached in case it up release It's it's a really handy device. It's more for saving energy that it is for anything else but i can use it to like turn off my water heater in with my daughter is taking a forty minute shower if i wanted to. You could turn them off. You could freeze her out. But you don't yes cav knows once just to make a point. No because she's pretty good at all. She's she's fifty or she's fourteen. So i'm like you are hurting the planet. And she's like the planet it's really it's it's a low blow from my perspective So water water. H facts of got. The kobe's i did find a sensor. I after writing that post my husband was like we have a sensor. It's just downstairs and i was like. Oh and then the other thing that's come in real handy is outdoor sprinkler controls. I don't have any allegation system. But i do have faucets. And so i have the orbit beehive that actually arrived So i set that up to set up a summer watering schedule and that is really happy. Because because i feel like i'm saving water and that's really important and yet still watering my betas. I don't know what else what else was in there. Is there anything else that rail box your mailbox thing hanging on christmas reef. Oh yes that's because my mailbox is so far away. The ring mailbox sensor which by the way does not use the amazon sidewalk network. I can't wait till it does because then it will actually reach far enough. My what my wife. I barely reaches my mailbox. I have to stick it in the outer edge of the garage. So that's where that's hanging right now so pretty And then the only other thing my locks in. I'm really waiting on the matter. Protocol to get sorted out new matter enabled locks because i want to put locks on all of my doors so i can do a good night routine that works but right now. I have z. Wave locked. But i have no way of hubs that i really want to set up for that. So that'll go away soon. So two questions. Does any of this irritate your husband daughter not anymore. It used to tremendously because things would break and now nothing breaks. everything is just. It's very it's a very positive system. Which what i wanted. Bogota thank you. So it's a super passive system and the nice thing is my. My family doesn't actually know what they're missing like. My husband would if he knew that if all of our locks were compatible he could turn off all of our locks just by saying good night madam he would be really pissed but he doesn't know that so he's he doesn't know what he doesn't know if you have dollars in it reminds me of you know when ten years ago i guess we can go back as far as ten years ago when we had the av system for her watching television. You know your your home theater in a box and whatnot. He had the cable box. And you had the the tv so yeah three different mo- remotes right there with this smart home stuff. It seems like at one point in time at least for the longest for me anyway. It seems like anytime i started to look into. It seems like it was just bringing back. That scenario of i needed a remote for this and i needed a remote for that and it just Said noah i'll zaps. So i almost the only apps i use are the aeko. Because they didn't set it up through the amazon There's actually no reason for that. I didn't and then the nanno leaf. Simply because i like using. There's like dozens of recipes that you can have on your different nanna leaf panels and i never remember the names of them so but the everything.

Let's put people on it and maybe the boss will get on it as well and it demonstrates to a potential customers that there's a lot of confidence in this vehicle and i think that's probably important for jeff as as well that they have not officially opened up the ticket window and haven't said how much it's going to cost to ride on new shepherd and i have a feeling that jeff is going to be anxious to actually get some customers. Going virgin galactic was able to sell Six hundred seats already and so they already have a customer base. That will keep them busy for a while. I think with blue origin. It's more important to really get customer sales going sooner rather than later especially since there are facing competition from virgin galactic. And i'm sure. Jeff bezos will give it a five star review. If he comes for sure yeah. Click on that if you like this. Maybe you'll like the moon right. Well this is as you said.

"This sunday. Assuming no weather or technical issues. Richard branson will join the first spaceflight with a full crew for his company virgin galactic. He announced the plan flight in a video released at the start of the month. I've always been a dream. My mom taught me to never give up and to reach for the stalls. This july a dream will become a reality but branson is not. The only billionaire headed into space. This month just nine days later amazon founder. Jeff bezos is set to join the first crude mission for new shepherd the reusable rocket built by his company blue origin in announcing his trip. Bezos also released a video explaining what the flight would mean to him. I want to go on this flight because it's the thing i've wanted to do all my life. It's an adventure. It's a big deal for me. So aside from leading to billionaires without their dreams the launch of these flights and the developments made by the two companies behind them could have real implications for the future of space travel and space tourism. Joining us to discuss. This is our reporter. Mike edinburgh who covers the business of space. So mike we've got two spaceflights coming up from two different companies with two different approaches to getting their virgin galactic. Space flight is scheduled for sunday. So let's start with them. How does their spacecraft work so virgin galactic gets to space. In a sense it's a two-part method. That company has a custom-built high fine airplane that they attach their spacecraft to the plane. Flies up to about forty five thousand feed at which point the craft releases and kind of rockets into space virgin glaxy said during their last plate they reached about a little bit more than fifty five miles above earth and then after spending a little time a few minutes at that altitude the craft kinda comes back down to earth sort of similar to how a badminton shuttlecock kind of feathers. When it's losing dude. And then eventually the craft sort of glides in for a landing all right but blue origin took a different approach. What are they doing right. Blue origin has a rocket for the launch. They have scheduled on july twentieth. And the vessel rockets into space and eventually a capsule which is where the passengers will sit detaches from the rocket and sort of gets above what is called the karman line which is one sort of definition of space. Blue origins rocket is reusable. So it travels back to the company's space facility in west texas of course it's meant to land there and the capsule comes down underneath a parachute you know if everything goes according to plan. Richard branson goes into space nine days before. jeff bezos. Is there some sort of rivalry here and does it help or hurt the industry. Yeah i mean you know blue origin. And jeff bezos announced. I that mr bezzaz would be joining others going up on july twentieth and after that after some regulatory sign off you know virgin. Galactic came out and said well. Richard branson is going to be joining a flight on july eleventh now. I actually asked the company about this last week. And they said look. You know we're doing it because we're technically ready and it's the right time. Is there a rivalry there. I would imagine. Many people would sort of see that rivalry. I think the companies also or at least some analysts who follow the companies sort of see efforts by both of them as kind of creating sort of building interest in the industry. One other difference about these flights is who's on them. Virgin galactic is taking its founder. Richard branson and other mission specialists but blue origin is taking passengers. Including jeff bezos his brother mark and unnamed auction winner and two year old would be astronaut. Wally funk who actually trained in the nineteen sixties to go to space but never got the chance. And i just wanna play a clip of mr bezos talking to miss funk about the trip gravity for four minutes you come back down. We lead gently on the desert surface. We opened the hatch. And you step outside. What's the first thing you say. i say honey. That was the best thing that ever happened to me. But beyond wally funk. What's the significance of blue origin. Having passengers on board. I mean the biggest one is that this is their first human fight. Blue origin doesn't have a pilot on their rocket. that's actually something else. That's important node. Another difference between the two companies is that with virgin galactic. There's a pilot taking the plane up and there's a pilot controlling the craft that eventually goes into space whereas blue origin doesn't have pilots sort of on board so this this is their first human fight essentially and that's definitely a big deal not just because of the passengers are. Do we know anything about the pricing for these flights. I can imagine they'd be a little cost prohibitive. If you're not a billionaire. Virgin galactic has not said what they're going to price tickets at you know when they start selling them again you know. The company has collected deposits for future flights from folks Worth two hundred and fifty thousand dollars each so. It's definitely not a cheap flight. And what about blue origin. What do we know about their ticket. Costs blue origin. As far as i know has not disclosed what those costs could be alright. So pricing is kind of unknown. What does that mean for when we can expect space tourism to become something a little more attainable for the rest of us. Yeah it's a good question you know part of what's happening with these two flights. This month is these high-profile billionaire entrepreneurs are putting themselves behind behind their products. You know they're going to experience. What the companies that they you know founded have been working on for for many years and i think a lot of people observing the industry or sort of see these flights as a bit of an inflection point that would shift the whole space tourism industry which is not really quite an industry. It's sort of a speculative idea that one day you could have people paying money to go to space the way they might pay to go on a cruise ship or something like that but these fights are seen as kind of like a moment where that shift toward more consumer orientation is starting to occur. The thing is though it may be years before. They're sort of mass access to these kinds of trips so if i can be super cheesy. It's kind of one small step for an industry and one giant leap for two billionaires. That's definitely one way to look at it. Both brenton have talked a about their their dreams longtime dreams of going to space. What you know that means in terms of space tourism industry is still. It's hard to say but it's still a long way away from being something ubiquitous for for most people all right that's our reporter mike edinburgh. Thanks for joining us. Mica thank you.

"All the tips point to a town called missouri. These tips caused sheriff. Sp to re interview a lot of those drug acquaintances of branson's that they hit interviewed years back in two thousand one during these new interviews. Several of the people claimed that branson had been shot and buried in this field in quit. -ment like these people. Were even able to identify the approximate area. That branson's body was buried on a map of the field. Oh well so on. July eighth two thousand nine authorities head out to quit and do a two day excavation of the field with the help of ten cadaver dogs they begin carefully combing a two mile radius around the field and nine of the ten dogs signal on the same spot and police can tell that the dirt in this area is different from the other parts of this field. It's looser like it had been recently disturbed so immediately. Police start digging but in a common theme with this case. Police don't bind anything. Wait back up for a second litter was different like disturb. Someone had recently doug or less did something in area yet. That's what the source material like. That's what they say. I mean to me. That doesn't mean that was ever there. I mean you just said that. Several people pointed to this place. Maybe someone new. The police were coming and moved something. So that's actually kind of the theory that had he told producers for no one saw thing that he believes that when branson told gina that he had to run out for a minute that day back in april two thousand and one that he had gone to meet some people at a meth house. S people believe that whoever was in charge of this drug ring in skidmore was worried. That branson would talk to police especially after that one running. He had with an officer that i mentioned earlier. And so he thinks because of this he was basically like taken out so he could be silenced. And branson was shot and killed. I mean the sheriff thinks that he was shot right there in the house. Like good more yes. So was that house ever search for evidence. I don't remember you even mentioning it. I didn't because here's the thing a couple of days after branson went missing that meth house burnt to the ground in honestly burned to the ground isn't even the right way to say it more like exploded so there was nothing left to collect right and more than anything. When officers responded to that explosion at that point they had no idea brand was even missing like he hadn't been reported missing at his family had input it together right so at the time everyone thought this was just an explosion caused.

"Well what you mean. Branson had been trucked by this guy. The short answer is yes now. It's possible that brand willingly took whatever jason gave to him either. He thought it was something else or he didn't react the way he expected oregon. He had no idea that he took something. But either way he the way branson tells it his dad he was like super messed up and once the drugs started to wear off branson kind of was like coming to and he rushed home feeling. What he said was ashamed and confused and he locked himself in his room until the next morning. And that's when he told bob what happened. Okay but actually what you just described is clear sexual assault. No question about it whether he knew he was taking something or not he. One hundred percent was not in a position to consent to any kind of sexual encounter. We'll that's what bob tells branson that would happen to him. At jason's was rape and that branson had nothing to be ashamed about. So did they report this to the police at the time or or is this. The first time law enforcement is hearing of it now that he's been reporting missing yet. It was not reported to police until now and based on statements made by bob. It seems like branson didn't want to report it right away so up until now bob had been thinking that you know the reason brands and hasn't been back with the hospital. The reason that he hadn't been calling him was that branson was handling the trauma in his own way by just getting out of town for a bit but now that it's been five days since anyone has seen or heard from him. Even bob who initially wasn't worried is now starting to wonder if his son might have met with foul play but from the first day of the investigation. Police already have kind of different theory about what happened. That's not related to this incident with branson's neighbor at all in the early two thousands. The methamphetamine seen in skidmore had just exploded a lot of people in skidmore and the neighboring towns were not just using met but making in selling it and this was no secret either. Everybody in town knew what was going on including police. In fact meth seen skidmore got so big so fast that a special law enforcement task force was created with sole purpose of busting these meth rings and police were thinking that branson's disappearance is probably drug related to branson have a history of this kind of thing. Well apparently a few months earlier branson had had a run in with an officer from this special meth busting task force but he wasn't arrested or charged with anything like that. So i guess officer just questioned him a little bit and like that was that but it was enough to put brand on polices radar like they knew he was involved in the drug scene. Some they just weren't one hundred percent. Sure on exactly what it was like. You said this is a tiny town and a drug scene. That's exploding like of course you probably know someone involved right and listen different. People say different things about whether or not brands and actually used drugs like some people. Say there's no way he wasn't using meth others. Say he did sometimes but what. Police suspect is that likely branson. Is one of the people like collecting supplies for the people who are actually making the map. So knowing all of this the sheriff ben espy. who was the lead investigator on branson's case from the start suspects foul play immediately and he puts together a team and starts an extensive search of the perry's property and what stands out isn't what police found..

"A week ago a man and a woman got into a metal pod sat down on vegan leather seats and strap themselves for a trip. Unlike any other the pod was then levitated by magnets and shot through vacuum tube at one hundred seven miles per hour in roughly six seconds. Talk about a wild ride and it was actually an historic first. The two brave souls are employees of virgin hyperloop and they were the first humans to test. The new technology virgin hyperloop focuses on the high speed transportation concept billionaire. Richard branson's virgin group is a minority investor before testing the system with humans virgin hyperloop conducted more than four hundred unmanned tests. Hyperloop has been called the future of transport. The systems are designed to be giant low pressure tubes floating pods or suspended by magnets and carry passengers from point. Eight point at theoretical speeds of up to seven hundred miles per hour. Here's how it works. The pod network uses magnetic levitation two sets of magnets both repel the pod in the tube and help move it forward and the vacuum system used to help accelerate to high speeds is similar to the system. You use to send your documents to the teller at your bank. drive through. Popular mechanics explains inside the pod. G forces were more than three times that of an airplane but the passengers said the ride was smooth. New york times reported ultimately groups like virgin hyperloop hoped to deploy the technology to transport people and cargo. The speed would reduce the time. It takes to get from los angeles to san francisco to less than an hour. The times report says that's faster than a direct flight. When the hyperloop debuts it will be the first truly new transportation technology and more than one hundred years the independent reports branson isn't the only billionaire dabbling in hyperloop technology. You may have heard of a fellow named elon musk. He's credited with conceptualizing the technology nearly a decade ago and he is boring company. Boring as in boring tunnels underground has a test tunnel california that it's using to test. Its hyperloop and other technology. Each year musk's spacex holds a hyperloop pod competition where university students compete to make prototypes of high speed transportation. Pods last year. Students from the university of munich won the competition there. To um hyperloop pod set a new speed record for the competition of nearly three hundred miles per hour a longer track could help teams reach even higher speeds. Musk says virgin. Hyperloop is already designed to route between london. Borough branson says the uk route would be quicker and cheaper than the high speed rail system being put in now. The independent reports and richard geddes co founder of the hyperloop advanced research partnership believes that. There's an opportunity for a hyperloop. System linking abu dhabi and dubai in the united arab emirates. For now the hyperloop is still a theoretical transport system with more than a dozen companies working on bringing it reality and when you have competitive billionaires behind for bragging rights about being first to market things have a way getting done

I was quite frightened actually, , or we were all very fearful about what was going to happen and everything all my values and everything I felt I stood for being threatened by this man to power. . And I wanted to I couldn't articulate why I felt so nervous. . And I wanted to really ground all where all those values came. . and. . So by looking back, , I wasn't gonNA rush by myself a tool I just wanted to ground where it came from. . So I started back with the birth of my father he was born nineteen eighteen. . And roll the sort of serendipitous. . It was exactly one hundred years before I started writing the book, , and there were these mighty seismic changes back in one, , thousand, , nine, thousand, , , nine, , hundred. . I wanted to serve slot the family into a historical context as well. . Because the both sets of grandparents came from different worlds didn't they? ? Yes. . Nothing. . That was one of the things that I was excited to investigate. . My father's family was really quite educated and very good fun actually and very playful. . They weren't in the grammar school boys and they all went to Cambridge. . And they were ventures and travelers and extraordinary. . My my mother's family was more of middle class but I was very interested about the class in England as well and how we've always felt as a family now, quite , sort of class less than I wanted to find out where that came from because I think they were quite horrible to your mother, , I yes. .

Anyhow it was a very enduring marriage and Utah wonderful stories of the courtship and all the rest of it. .

Well, , it was sort of heaven really the with very little cash. . My father wasn't very successful barrister in he was slightly forced into it by his father and. . One of the defining characteristics of all of us which is really was really interesting to sort of nail is that we're all dyslexic and both my parents are dyslexic. . They just found schoolwork in academia very difficult and my poor father was sort of shoehorned into being a barrister and he shouldn't have been. . So he was there was never much cash around but. . They were just sort good fund, my , parents and. . They both been through the war and I, , think life was just to you know they'd seen such terrible things experience really quite a lot of hardship and they just wanted to live for the joy of life again and they gave us that in bucket foles and just embraced all K- also adventure and people and everyone was welcome and we had very very happy childhood action. .

We've sort of space do and Richard Got Adhd and he was very very energetic and rather than sort of repressed him I think my parents soon realized that I mean in Heaven Forbid Kids nowadays would be on Ritalin or something and they set him challenges and so my earliest memories were keeping Richard Busy sending him off on on really long bike rides and really difficult things to keep him occupied for the day and lots of mealtimes. . My sister just lovely to me and. . I wanted to be held on Halloween because of the things. . We teased relentlessly and there were lots of sort of games but. . Missed quite interesting. . Now in my mom's still alive, , she's ninety six and I'm sure a lot of people listening to this all recognize this but we all still fall into type as if we're still ten years old. . And we'll. . We'll want Mommy's attention you know, , and we'll still play all roles and it's it's possible. .
