"brian weeden" Discussed on Progressive Talk 1350 AM

"That one satellite got turned into 3000 things. And that's just the things we can track. Was it space junk? A big part of the movie Gravity you are remembering correctly. Debris from the missile strike has caused a chain reaction, hitting other satellites and creating new debris. 2013 Hollywood movie. It begins with a chatty George Clooney and Sandra Bullock servicing the Hubble Space Telescope gazing contentedly back at Earth. This huge cloud of debris for a missile strike rips through communications blackout. It's a bad situation happen. North America just lost their Facebook explain. This dramatic portrayal definitely raised the profile of space junk. Even if the portrayal wasn't very accurate, I think maybe on the whole it has been a good thing before the issue, even if I might grab a little bit. Scientists love to grumble. That's Brian Weeden again. He's now the director of program planning for the Secure World Foundation thinks a lot about sustainability in space. And he says that opening scene in gravity doesn't capture the true problem. Over the breather. Catch them was portrayed as sort of Ah nuclear chain reaction. Right? There's one event that sets off this series of things that all happened very fast. The reality is sort of the opposite. Where it's like climate change. The problem with space junk is it's a long, relatively slow accumulation over decades with a big negative impact down the road. Got it. Yeah. So Brian says mitigating the risk of space junk involves convincing people launching satellites, governments and companies. Change their behavior now mindful of the future and maybe have a little inconvenience or a little more cost now. Forestall bad things in the future, and that's a really difficult argument to make because we humans just aren't engineered to kind of think like that Preach, especially when nothing truly catastrophic has happened. Yet, but space junk is already proving to be problematic. In the short term, it's translating into real world costs. A satellite operators field alerts about potential collisions. Do you do I change my satellites orbit? Because that cost fuel and that will shorten the lifetime. Your satellite, which isn't good for the commercial space economy, which is kind of booming right now. Yeah, we did That episode all about how space sex is going to put a bunch of satellites up there, Right? You know, in the long term space junk has the potential to not only collide with manned spacecraft like the international space station but threatens satellites at all levels of orbit. Like those used for imaging and weather data collection, which then could mean our climate models are less accurate. Or we don't have a good way to track emitters, and that could have a negative impact on the road. Yeah, we're gonna need that data We are. But here's the thing. There's no international regulation for how satellites should operate. There's only guidelines guidelines yes guidelines from the Interagency Space Debris Coordination Committee for mitigating the Risk of debris. Things like de Orbit your satellite after 25 years by burning it up for bringing it down. Passive, ate the upper rocket stage me invent all the remaining fuel or training the batteries, so it's not his exploding. Yes, so there's less risk for debris. Countries do this, but it's totally voluntary. It's up to each individual nation to implement. So until there's greater accountability, space junk will continue to be a problem. Okay. We've talked about the problem. Give me a solution calling, like what is being done to clean up this junk. Well, we're not seeing much in the skies. There's been demonstrations of different cleanup technologies on Earth that could be used in space magnets. Deployable nets, harpoons, a little space fission. Yeah. In the orbital See? Most of this clean of technology is being developed in Europe and Japan. But here's the thing we don't know what's the best way to yank this swiftly moving debris out of orbit to a place where it can safely burn up. You would need a high level of precision to remove that junk without creating more of it. And I feel like that would take a lot of money to pull that off. Yes. So it was a pretty big deal.

"Appears to have successfully tested a new spacecraft. Last week's mission was shrouded in secrecy. But as NPR's Jeff from field reports, there are some clues about what China sent into space and why. Last Friday, a Chinese rocket took off carrying a mysterious payload. A terse statement on state media said it was quote A reusable experimental spacecraft, but they didn't give a launch time. They don't have any more details. No riel official footage of the Lord's Jonathan Mcd, Alison astronomer, Earthy Center for Astrophysics, Harvard and Smithsonian who specializes in tracking satellites and spacecraft orbiting the Earth. When he plotted the course of China's new craft, he found that it passed over a secretive military facility. An area called Loop Nure, where China once tested its nuclear weapons. There's an air base there, which has AH big runway that's aligned exactly in the direction ofthe the orbit of the space craft. On Sunday, China announced its new spacecraft heads landed. Sure enough fuzzy satellite images napped by a commercial company called Planet. Seemed to show activity on the giant runway right at the moment, the landing would have occurred. McDowell says that the evidence is circumstantial, but he believes China has just tested a space plane. Think of it. It's a little space shuttle a craft with wings probably too small to carry people that took off on a rocket and coasted back to Earth. The information of all hands together now that this wass A test of something probably a space plane that made a winged reentry on landed on the runway at Lop nor the US Air Force has a similar spacecraft called the X 37 B. It's been launched in since 2010. So if that's what China tested, why now it's a great question. We're not even really sure why the United States military is pursuing a space plane like it's been doing for the last Decade or so. Brian Weeden Studies face security issues with the Secure World Foundation. The U. S X 37 B program remains highly classified. Weeden says he believes it's being used to test new sensors and systems for the military. Think about if you're building a brand new satellite, and you've got a lot of fancy new technology that's never been in space before. That's potentially risky. But if you can apply some of that technology in space, let's say in the payload bay of a reusable space plane that could allow you to get a better feel for how about react. McDowell says that space planes which travel many times, the speed of sound, could also potentially helped with the development of so called hyper sonic weapons.

The landing of the space plane or whatever it was, is just the latest success for China. McDowell says that recently completed its own satellite navigation system, it has a robotic missions going to Mars and several probes on the moon.

Is Space Junk Cluttering Up The Final Frontier

"We are tackling a question from listener. Rachel. Weiss space-junk this growing population of manmade objects cluttering up Earth orbit so Does that happen? Okay I. Let's consider what satellites are made out of metal plastic glass powered by batteries or solar panels, and when they're placed in specific orbital highways, they stay there moving. So quickly that they don't fall towards the earth kind of like, you know if you had to put a boat in a body of water, you want to avoid fighting the current kind of thing that's more. But jaw who we met earlier, he says that from sputnik onwards, our satellites have been creating debris shedding spent rocket bodies pieces becoming glued satellites have been known to explode when unspent fuel is on board, and of course, they can cross flightpaths and collide with one another and whenever satellite shed pieces they. Tend to not should one but many many pieces, hundreds of thousands of pieces depending on the type of collision. These collisions rarely destroy the satellites, but they can alter their operation and send pieces jettisoning off into space affected not only by gravity, but other physical forces. So we're pressure thermal radiation charged particle, environment interactions with you know magnetic fields, and all of this makes it very difficult to predict what space junk will do next the little that falls back to Earth, which is one object that day on average burns up or falls into the ocean. So space junk is probably not going to land on your head. Have you calculated that probability because you're GONNA ask me this question I haven't. But there's a scientist mark. Matinee, at NASA orbital debris program who has it's one in several trillion honestly I still like it but okay Mattie the people you should worry about more astronauts right? The International Space Station actually has a tracker to monitor for collision risk and they will maneuver out of the way when the risk is too great. Wow. But I feel like if there was a major collision, I would hurt about it, right? Yeah. There hasn't been a major collision you know the US military NASA and other agencies and groups around the world they tracked debris and Warren of potential collisions but there's been a few scares in recent decades. So in two thousand, fifteen, for example, the crew. On. The International Space Station had to hide in their Sawyer's capsules. Basically, the stations lifeboat when debris from an old Russian weather satellite came dangerously close. I don't like that no spacecraft and satellites will routinely maneuver out of harm's way but only if they have ample warning so the whole spacefaring community was pretty rattled when in two, thousand, seven, the Chinese military destroyed one of their own weather satellites they were testing out anti-satellite. Technology. Brian Weeden, remembers tracking this big explosion for the US air. Force. I personally was sort of shocked. It was of like wow Brian was part of a squadron that counted the resulting debris and in the end ended up cataloging more than three thousand objects. So that one. Got turned into three thousand things and that's just the things we can track wasn't space junk a big part of the movie gravity you are remembering cracks lake. From the missile strike has caused a chain reaction hitting other satellites in creating desgris two thousand eighteen Hollywood movie begins with a chatty George Clooney and Sandra bullock servicing the Hubble space telescope gays, and contentedly back at Earth. When this huge cloud of debris from missile strike grips through communications blackout it's a bad situation happen North America's laws individual. Dramatic portrayal definitely raise the profile of space junk. Even if the portrayal wasn't very accurate I, think navy on the whole it has been a good thing for for the issue. Even, if I might grumble a little bit scientists love to grumble. That's Brian Weeden again he's now the director of program planning for the Secure World Foundation thinks a lot about sustainability in space, and he says that opening scene gravity doesn't capture the true problem over the breath catches him was portrayed as sort of a nuclear chain reaction. Right there's one event that sets off this series of things that will happen very fast. The reality is sort of the opposite where it's it's like climate change. The problem with space junk is it's a long relatively slow accumulation over decades with a big negative impact down the road. Got It. Yeah. So Brian says. The risk of space junk involves convincing people, launching satellites, governments, and companies to change their behavior. Now mindful of the future and maybe have a little inconvenience or a little more cost now to forestall bad things in the future, and that's a really difficult argument to make because we humans just aren't engineered to kind of think like that preach especially when nothing truly catastrophic has happened yet but space junk is already proving to be problematic in the short term, it's translating into real world costs a satellite. Field alerts about potential collisions. Do Do I change my satellites orbit because that costs fuel and that will shorten the lifetime your satellite, which isn't good for the commercials base economy, which is Kinda booming right now. Yeah. We did that episode all about how SPACEX IS GONNA put a bunch of satellites up there. Right you know in the long term space junk has the potential to not only collide with manned spacecraft like the International Space Station, but threatens satellites at all levels of orbit like those used for imaging and whether data collection, which then could mean our climate models are less accurate or we don't have a good way to track the mirrors and that could have negative

"This is a reversal from the administration's previous position to let the popular parts of the law stand, for instance, the law barring insurers from charging people more for pre existing conditions the threat to ObamaCare with a winning campaign issue for House Democrats, and it's been a source of frustration for Republicans who've tried and failed to repeal it many times to talk more about this. We have Representative Tom Reid of New York. He's a Republican co-chair of the house problem solvers caucus, welcome to all things considered. That's great to be with you. Thanks for having me on. So just so everyone's clear about what we're talking about. The administration is backing a lower court ruling that says the ObamaCare system should be wiped out because the tax plan that you all pass last year took away the penalty for not having health insurance. And if the supreme court rule. Rules that ObamaCare is out. We will have a plan that's far better that ObamaCare. So as this makes its way through the courts does the party have any kind of alternate to ObamaCare right now. Well, you know, I believe we do in the sense of our our solutions being based on bring market pressure to bear into the healthcare arena to drive these costs down, however, one with the votes, right? Because that's been the problem definitely can repeal it. You just can't seem to come up with an alternative. And that's exactly the issue. And that's one of the reasons I I disagree with the position of repealing the entire law through the judicial system through the court system. I'm a Republican who believes that what we should do is proactively address the problems of healthcare and lead the provisions that we agree with the pre existing condition protection, for example, allow that to remain as the laws land and move forward. And I think that's going to be the case, regardless of what happens in the court system, you've called this a poor political move. I I did, you know, not only substantively does it put millions of Americans in harm's way. If the court agrees with the Justice department that the whole law needs to be ruled unconstitutional. I think politically, you know to not have a concrete proposal. No concrete plan on the Republican side that we could roll out with the votes with Republican support to get to the president's desk than signed into law is risky. What's a lot of people are rightfully so and then anxious position and politically that causes us to be in a weaker position in my political opinion. Now, that's just my opinion. But you know, that's why I disagree with this both on political and subsidy basis you said anxious position. Do you feel that Republicans won't be known as the party of healthcare? Right. That the somehow be the party against healthcare. I think we're going to be a party that's going to offer solutions. And I just hope that what we can do is. We have that debate is bring Democrats to the table that wanna be practical that want to actually solve this problem of healthcare costs ever creasing lover hate, the Affordable Care Act is not doing what they promise it would do and that's spring healthcare costs down, and what we should be doing this Republicans and Democrats finding ways to lower drug prices for folks seniors in particular, lower access costs to healthcare overall and show these benefits in patients pocket as opposed to negotiate between carriers in administrators so far the problem. Solvers caucus has not solved any problems, right? I think there's been one major piece of legislation. You guys have sponsored related to opioid abuse. Which was fairly popular. I mean, what's your response to the criticism that this group it gives the appearance of compromise? But doesn't have action especially on an issue like healthcare. Well, fundamentally I fundamentally in. Vigorously disagree with your assessment. We haven't solved many problems. That's just false. What we have done is. We got prison reform criminal Justice reform. We were the voice in the house that got that through the house Senate into the president's desk signed into law. We have changed the house rules as the problem solvers caucus members so uniting together to empower members to bring legislation to the floor changing the rules of the house of representatives is a generational institutional reform that the magnitude of that impact cannot be discounted. So we are we are moving forward with solutions many issues where I wanted to tell you, you know, we're not looking to solve the issues with our proposals. It's our way or the highway we take input. We try to influence the agenda in a positive way. And if a piece of it gets to the finish line war good with that too. It's not all about our ideas is about solving problems with people back home. That's Tom Reid of New York. Republican congressman thank you for speaking with us. All right. Thanks for having me on. There is still a lot of head scratching over what happened. And in the case of jussie smollet. He's the actor who was indicted on sixteen felony counts. He was charged with filing a false police report saying he had been the victim of a racist and homophobic attack. And then suddenly yesterday prosecutors in Cook County, Illinois dropped all the charges in a statement. They said it was in return for small let's agreement to do community service and forfeit his ten thousand dollar bond for more on that decision. We are joined now by Cook County state's attorney Kim, FOX, welcome. Thank you for having me. So this statement from your office yesterday said, quote, we did not exonerate Mr. small, but you dropped all the charges against him. So do you or don't you believe that he committed the crimes he was charged with? So in order for us to offer Mr. small at the opportunity to have conditions in exchange. Dropping targes we have to believe that he committed that class is my ethical obligation to now. Not as someone to do something in condition if I don't believe that they didn't commit a crime. So yes, we believe that the case was. A sufficient case for us to prosecute. Should we have decided to do? So. Okay. So this move to drop all the charges was not connected to any new evidence. That changed your understanding of the facts in the case is that what you're saying. Yes. When I'm speaking. I'm speaking of the office because as you know, and I don't know if we'll get to it. I was accused right. That's from the case. But no, I had nothing to do with the strength of the case. I think what most people don't understand is. We have an ethical obligation to only proceeding cases in courts, where we believe that we have the evidence to meet our burden in this case, it was part of an alternative prosecution program. If you will we cannot offer diversion remedy to someone that we believe is not guilty. Then your office. You've used the phrase alternative prosecution, but a lot of people take issue with the use of that phrase because in most alternative prosecutions, the defendant agrees to community service or drug treatment, the defendant accepts responsibility for what he or she has done, and then the charges get dropped. That is not what happened here with Jesse small. Let heated sixteen hours of community service earlier this week. He forfeited his ten thousand dollar bond, and then he had his charges dropped how is this alternative prosecution? Well, I wanna be clear there's an umbrella of things that fall under alternative prosecution the statute does allow for people to participate in restitution. So the ten thousand dollars which is the maximum allowed under the statute, it does allow them to do community service without having to acknowledge guilt for some of the admission of guilt. And having that on the record incentivizes them to do those other things that you talked about whether it was community service or restitution the statute allows to choose how we want to proceed now yesterday. Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel had some pretty harsh words about this decision. He called it a whitewash of Justice and suggested that it sent the message that there are two sets of rules when for celebrities and the wealthy and one for everyone else does it concern you that people might have that impression of what happened here. It does concern me because what happened yesterday was the rules that we have for everyone else. The fifty seven hundred people who participated on alternative prosecutions was the same things that we made available to Mr. small it. I mean, I think the question that you smile at. We'll have to answer is he paid the ten thousand dollars which we consider to be restitution. He did the community service but will linger with him whether he was had done. This or been found not guilty by a judge or guilty answering for what he had done, and that will last longer than this court case, or what a potential court case he will have to live with those questions in his credibility his days moving forward. All right. That's kim. Fox. She's the Cook County Illinois state's attorney. Thank you very much. Thank you. India announced today that it has successfully tested a satellite killing weapon. NPR's Jeff Brumfield has more on the test. And what it could mean for the region. Indian prime minister Narendra Modi announced the test in a national address pot up the arch up on our nam unreach-. He says that India now stands tall as a space power VIP. Wondering is a political? Scientists did not he says the test apparently used an Indian made missile to strike an Indian made satellite. They launch a missile from their missile test site and intercepted the satellite, which was in orbit at three hundred kilometers in space three hundred kilometers or one hundred eighty six miles is actually a relatively low orbit. No pun intended is relatively low hanging fruit in terms of a kill. But you know, it is it's only the fourth country that's demonstrated as capabilities the other three are China, Russia and the United States, Brian Weeden. With the secure world foundation. He says there's an anti-satellite arms race happening right now. And there are no arms control treaties to stop it organizations. Like the UN regularly talk about limiting weapons in space. But there really hasn't been any serious discussion about dealing with ground based anti satellite. Weapons. Weeden says the main danger is debris that can be created by hitting a satellite a two thousand seven tests by China's speed thousands of fragments into orbit many are still up there. And so the concern would be that if there's a future conflict, which weaned US, China US, Russia, India and China or India Pakistan that these weapons might be used and lower Thorpe, it might become filled with deadly shrapnel that could knock out other non-military satellites VIP in Narang says he sees another purpose behind India's test today to strike the satellite the Indian military. Used to kind of missile designed to intercept other missiles hitting a satellite is similar to striking and incoming warheads. So the tests may actually be about missile defense. If that's the case, then it's also designed to send a message, they'll say, it's not directed towards any other country.

"It's all things considered from NPR news. I'm Audie Cornish. Elsa chang. There is still a lot of head scratching over what happened in the case of Jesse small let he's the actor who is indicted on sixteen felony counts related to allegedly filing a false police report. He said he had been the victim of a racist and homophobic attack. And then yesterday prosecutors in Cook County, Illinois dropped all charges in what they called an alternative prosecution. They noted that small let had done community service and forfeited his ten thousand dollar bond for some reaction. We called former Cook County prosecutor Eric Sussman. I asked him whether he has ever seen anything like this, quite frankly, I haven't seen a reversal bike this by either my former colleagues on the state side or the federal side not without there being some very significant change in the evidence, which according to the state's attorney's office. There hasn't been I wanna talk about this phrase. We keep. Hearing alternative prosecutions what sort of the rationale behind this program. So people can move on with their lives. They don't have charges on their record. So they can get jobs. Exactly, the the rationale behind the program is look people make mistakes reasons in their pass such as if you have a drug addiction, or you're a veteran who has suffered with PTSD those types of issues the way, those work is okay, we will after a certain period of time agreed to drop the charges in exchange. You will do community service. You will go to a drug treatment program. You will do these types of things assuming you do what you're supposed to do. Then we will drop the charges with the prosecution is calling this in terms of an alternative prosecution is not something that was ever envisioned by the legislators when they designed these types of programs or by the courts, it seems like the prosecutors are. Trying to put a round peg in a square hole here by calling this alternative prosecution rather than calling it what it is. Which is we're not comfortable going forward in airing this case in the public now small let has been speaking out. He is denying that he had done anything wrong. He in fact, he said I'm quoting here. I have been truthful and consistent on every single level since day one and his lawyers chiming in and saying look, this is a guy who's a victim. Who was then vilified do you usually see people who receive alternative prosecutions show some contrition some remorse as a prosecutor. You would look for acceptance of responsibility by the prosecutor in a judge would expect that that's why this is not an alternative prosecution. Prosecutors do not just drop charges and allow someone to go out there and say I did nothing wrong. And I was in essence wrongfully charged and on the flip side. I think it's important. To note, the state's attorney's office is out there saying, oh, no. He did do something wrong. We do have evidence. And quite frankly, they need to stop saying that it's improper for them to be saying that at this point about someone that they have dropped the charges against. So it seems like contradictory. Things are happening. Yes. When I was in the Cook County state's attorney's office there were situations where we dropped prosecutions, despite the fact that we believed that someone was guilty. We did those generally under a circumstance where a witness had recanted or evidence that once was available to us is no longer available to us, and what we would say in those circumstances is we do not have sufficient evidence to be able to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that this person committed the crime that again is not what the prosecutors are seeing here what they're saying. Here is we have the evidence. Jesse smollet is guilty. But for reasons that we do not want to share with the public. We're dropping the case. Eric sussman. Former first assistant state's attorney for Cook County, Illinois, he's now a partner at the law firm Reed Smith, thank you so much for joining us today. Thanks salsa. We have reached out to the Cook County state's attorney's office and are waiting to hear back. President Trump says he's going to make the GOP the party of healthcare. But he's told his Justice department to support illegal effort to cancel the Affordable Care Act known as a Bama care. This is a reversal from the administration's previous position to let the popular parts of the law stand, for instance, the law barring insurers from charging people more for pre existing conditions. The threat to ObamaCare was a winning campaign issue for House Democrats, and it's been a source of frustration for Republicans have tried and failed to repeal. It many times to talk more about this. We have Representative Tom Reid of New York. He's a Republican co-chair of the house problem solvers caucus, welcome to all things considered. That's great to be with you for having me on. So just so everyone's clear about what we're talking about. The administration is backing a lower court ruling that says the ObamaCare system should be. Wiped out because the tax plan that you all pass last year took away the penalty for not having health insurance. And if the supreme court rules that ObamaCare is out we will have a plan that's far better than ObamaCare. So as this makes its way through the courts does the party have any kind of alternative to right now. Well, you know, I believe we do in the sense of our our solutions being based on bring a market pressure to bear into the healthcare arena to drive these costs down. However with the votes, right? Is that's been the problem definitely can repeal it. You just can't seem to come up with an alternative. And that's exactly the issue. And that's one of the reasons I I disagree with the position of repealing the entire law through the judicial system to the court system. I I'm a Republican who believes that you know, what we should do is proactively address the problems of healthcare and lead the provisions that we agree with the pre existing condition protection, for example, allow that to remain as the laws land and move forward. And I think that's going to be the case, regardless of what happens in the court system. You've called this a poor political move. I did not only substantively does it put millions of Americans in harm's way. If the court agrees with the Justice, permanent, the whole law needs to be ruled unconstitutional, I think politically to not have a concrete proposal. No concrete plan on the reply. Side that we could roll out with the votes with democrat Republican support to get to the president's signed into law is risky puts a lot of people are rightfully so and then anxious position and politically that causes us to be a. A weaker position in my political opinion. Now, that's just my opinion. But you know, that's why I disagree with this both on political and substantive basis. You said anxious position. Do you feel that Republicans won't be known as the party of healthcare? Right. That the somehow be the party against healthcare. I think we're going to be a party that's going to offer solutions. And I just hope that what we can do is. We have that debate is bring Democrats to the table that want to be practical that want to actually solve this problem of healthcare costs ever creasing lover hate the Affordable Care Act. It does not doing what they promised. They would do and that's spring healthcare costs down, and what we should be doing this Republicans and Democrats finding ways to lower drug prices for folks seniors in particular, lower access cost to healthcare overall and show these benefits in patients pocket as opposed to negotiated between the carriers and administrators so far the problem. Solvers caucus has not solved any problems, right? I think there's been one major piece of legislation guys have sponsored related to opioid abuse. Which was fairly popular. I mean, what's your sponsor the criticism that this group gives the appearance of compromise? But doesn't have action especially on an issue like healthcare a fundamentally I fundamentally. Vigorously disagree with your assessment. We haven't solved any problems. That's just false. What we have done is. We got prison reform criminal Justice reform. We were the voice in the house. They got that through the house Senate into the president's desk signed into law. We have changed the house rules is the problem solvers caucus members so uniting together to empower members to bring legislation to the floor changing the rules of the house of representatives is generational institutional reform that the magnitude of that impact cannot be discounted. So we are we are moving forward with solutions many issues, and we're not we're we're I wanted to tell you, you know, we're not looking to solve the issues with our proposals one way or the highway. It's our way or the highway. We take input we tried to influence the agenda in a positive way. And if a piece of it gets to the finish line war good with that too. It's not all about our ideas is about solving problems with people back home. That's Tom Reid of New York. Republican congressman thank you for speaking. With us. All right. Thanks for having me on India announced today that it has successfully tested a satellite killing weapon. NPR's Jeff Brumfield has more on the test. And what it could mean for the region. Indian prime minister Narendra Modi announced the test at a national address pot up the arch up on our nam unthreatened. He says that India now stands tall as a space power VIP hindering as a political scientists to not he says the test apparently used an Indian made missile to strike an Indian made satellite. They launch a missile from their missile test site and intercepted the satellite, which was in orbit at three hundred kilometers in space three hundred kilometers or one hundred eighty six miles is actually a relatively low orbit. No pun intended is relatively low hanging fruit in terms of a kill. But you know, it is it's only the fourth country that's demonstrated capabilities. The other three are China Russia and the United States Brian Weeden with the secure. World foundation. He says there's an anti-satellite arms race happening right now. And there are no arms control treaties to stop it organizations. Like the UN regularly talk about limiting weapons in space. But there really hasn't been any serious discussion about dealing with ground based anti satellite weapons. Weeden says the main danger is debris that can be created by hitting a satellite a two thousand seven test by China's speed thousands of fragments into orbit many are still up there. So the concern would be that if there's a future conflict between US China US, Russia, India and China or India Pakistan that these weapons might be used and lower Thorpe, it might become filled with deadly shrapnel could knock out other non-military satellites VIP Narang says he sees another purpose behind India's test today to strike the satellite. The Indian military used to. Missile designed to intercept other missiles hitting a satellite is similar to striking an incoming warheads. So the tests may actually be about missile defense. If that's the case, then it's also designed to send a message. They'll say it's directed towards any other country, but this is clearly relevant.

"All things considered from NPR news. I'm Ari Shapiro. Audie cornish. President Trump signed a directive this afternoon to create a brand new space force. He envisions an entirely new military branch that would ensure as he puts it American dominance in space NPR national security correspondent, Greg Mary looks at how the concept is being received President Trump likes to boast that the US has the world's strongest military on land at sea end in the air. But what about space, it's the future? It's where we're going. I suspect whether we like it or not that's where we're going in space. That's the next step, and we have to be prepared. The president's spoke in the Oval Office as he signed a directive calling on the Pentagon to draft legislation to create a space force would be the sixth branch of the military, but some are questioning the cost and the necessity. The air force already has something called the space command unless there is something that causes a massive expansion in the number of military personnel amount of money, we spend on space that would justify new department. I honestly can't see that. Brian Weeden is a former air force officer who's now with the nonprofit secure world foundation. He does think a shakeup is in order. The biggest problem people identify is that the air force has not giving enough priority to space. This space force would be part of the air force at least initially, but congress has to approve it. And it's not clear how much support Trump's proposal has. Especially among Democrats who control the house the last time. Congress created a new military branch was nineteen forty seven when it established the air force. But Trump's ideas backed by those who say the US military needs to do more in space. I hate to use the word, really adversary. But certainly the leading threat to US space capabilities China, John Loxton is professor emeritus at the space policy institute at George Washington University. I think China's developed the capability to attack our forces in order to defend itself. So whether you call that offensive or defensive they have the ability to wage an attack against U S space assets, the air force already handles missile warning systems, satellite communications, and GPS systems and other branches of the military have their own missions in space. The president's space force would incorporate them all and get a seat on the joint chiefs of staff. America must be fully equipped to defend our vital interests. Our adversaries are training forces and developing technology to undermine our security and space in a memo last fall air force secretary, Heather Wilson estimated it would take five years and thirteen billion dollars to get the space force up and running Greg.

"L. Washington comes to talk. I'm John Batchelor. This is the John Batchelor show. David Livingston, Dr space, the space shows, my colleague and cohost this hotel Mars, we're speaking to Dr Brian Weeden, director of programming and program planning for secure world foundation, Brian and his colleagues earlier this year developed a paper it's available for everyone to read which they outline counter space or what are the threats? What is the mission the necessary for space, and Brian I want to start with China and probably end with China because roscosmos is out of money. These days has problems building a new space port that works. But China has no problem with him visions, not only to land on the dark side of the moon. But also to develop what you could say is right now, a nascent lunar colony mission they are looking to extend the militarization of space from lower orbit to all the way to the moon, and in between we can imagine China also has tested some years back. I believe is. Two thousand seven the only active anti-satellite weapon ever fired and it caused an enormous amount of trouble that's still devil's us. Because of the Detroit is from that from that from that event to your measure right now does the United States have an understanding of China as a threat in low-earth-orbit a threat for lunar orbit or do. They regard this as some sort of parallel program for a trading partner. How are they? How's it regarded Brian? I think they have a pretty good idea of the emerging fret posed by some of the recent developments for earth orbit in general. And I say that because you know, the the two thousand seventeen test was the most public, but there have been many others that same system was tested in two thousand five hundred thousand six although not with an intercept and the China has also conducted additional NFL test ten thirteen fourteen in fifty and there's strong evidence. There's the US is well aware of efforts to develop what is probably going to be an operational capable and assistant and perhaps more than one. And that that is what prompted Walser that along with some of the Russian activities. Here's what prompted the Obama administration in two thousand thirteen to go back. Back and re look at its national space security related policies. And that is what started this whole discussion, which is ending up with the space force today. As far as beyond earth orbit. I mean, the US military is currently focused on its satellites in earth orbit and how they provide support to trust your warfighting. The military's not looking beyond that that's not in their current mission school. And so if your references is the military consider China in the moon and beyond while the US military's not currently looking at beyond earth orbit. So that was fall into this discussion of what used the mission of the space force to is still remaining focused on supporting and enhancing warfare military activities on earth. Or are we looking at expanding the mission to other national security missions, yonder Thorpes? And that's something that is you know, there is no answer on that yet. It's currently being debated. David. Do you see that? Getting this information out to the public is is making a difference in terms of our awareness, and what we may convey to members of congress, and and to others, it's the public having a an important role in this debate yet. Well, I know we've we've had discussions with staffers and members of congress about this. And I think having a document talk about publicly has helped in that regard. You know, believe it or not members of congress are not always up to speed on. You know, the details of some of the palsy issues. They're debating particularly issues that are as highly technical and complex and classified as some of this space stuff. So in that regard, it really has helped as far as the general public. I think DASA trickier, you know, this debate about national security space, your priorities, an organization missions is not new we've been doing military activities and stay since the nineteen fifties. And the public really hasn't been engaged in that has known about. Focused on NASA human spaceflight, and you know, the gastro are doing. You know, this is changed a bit. You know, President Trump has personally waited in on this base sports issue. And I think that has definitely raise the salience of it. And it's raised awareness among many people who were not necessarily following it before. I don't I, unfortunately, I think that resulted in there's a lot of people that now support space force because he does there's also people that are against the space force because he supports it. And so I'm not sure if that raising the public awareness has been beneficial were not. Well, we have yet to see. But I think, you know, in general, we hope there's going to be more informed discussion about the real issues. Here. What are the fresh to US space systems, what should US policy being to deal with those how best to organize and maybe a little bit less on sort of the partisan politics side.

Here's what prompted the Obama administration in two thousand thirteen to go back and re look at its national space security related policies. That is what started this whole discussion, which is ending up with the space force today as far as beyond earth orbit. I mean, the US military is currently focused on its satellites in earth orbit and how they provide support to trust your warfighting, the military is not looking beyond that that's not in their current mission scope, and so if your references is China in the moon and beyond while the US military's not current. Looking at beyond earth orbit. So that you know would fall into this discussion of what used the mission of the space force. Two is still remaining focused on supporting and enhancing warfare military activities on earth. Or are we looking at expanding the mission to other national security missions yonder? And that's something that is you know, there is no answer on that yet. It's currently being debated. David. Do you see that getting misinformation out to the public is is making a difference in tons terms of our awareness, and what we may convey to members of congress, and and others is the public having an important role in this debate yet? Well, I know we've we've had discussions with stoppers and members of congress about this. And I think having a document talk about publicly has helped in that regard. You know, believe it or not members of congress are not always up to speed on. You know, the details of some of the policy issues. They're debating particularly issues that are as highly technical and complex and classified as some of this space docks. So in that regard, it really has helped as far as the general public. I think that's a bit trickier. This debate about national security space, your priorities and organization, admissions is not new we've been doing military activities and space since the nineteen fifties. And the public really hasn't been engaged in that has it known about journeyman focused on NASA human spaceflight, and you know, the the the the astronauts are doing. This is changed a bitch. You know, President Trump has personally waited in on this day sports issue. I think that has definitely raise the salience of it. And it's raised awareness among many people who were not necessarily following it before. I don't I am fortunate. I think that is resulted in there's a lot of people that now support a space force because he does there's also people that are against the space force because he supports it. And so I'm not sure that raising the public awareness has been beneficial war. Not we have yet to see I think in general, we hope there's going to be a more informed discussion about the real issues. Here. What are the threats to US stay systems, what should US policy being to deal with those how best to organize and maybe a little bit less on sort of the partisan politics side.

"I'm John Batchelor. This is the John Batchelor show. David Livingston, Dr space of the space shows, my colleague and co-host. This is hotel Mars. We are speaking to Dr Brian Weeden director of programming and program planning for secure world foundation, Brian and his colleagues earlier this year developed a paper it's available for everyone to read and which they outline counter space or what are the threats? What is the mission the necessary for space, and Brian I want to start with China and probably end with China 'cause roscosmos is out of money these days and has problems building a new space port that works. But China has no problem. With ambitions not only to land on the dark side of the moon. But also to develop what you could say is right now, a nascent lunar colony mission they are looking to extend the militarization of space from lower orbit to all the way to the moon, and in between we can imagine China also has tested some years back. I believe is two thousand and seven the only active anti-satellite weapon ever fired, and it caused enormous amount of trouble that still devil's us because of the detritus from that far out from that from that event to your measure right now does the United States have an understanding of China as a threat in low-earth-orbit a threat for lunar orbit or do. They regard this as some sort of parallel program for a trading partner. How are they? How's it regarded Brian? I think they have a pretty good idea of the emerging threat posed by some recent developments for you know, earth orbit in general, and I say that because you know, the test was the most public, but there have been many others that same system was tested in two thousand five in two thousand six although not with an intercept China has also conducted additional anti-satellite test ten thirteen fourteen and fifty and there's strong evidence there the US is well aware of of efforts to develop what is probably going to be an operationally capable and a satellite system, and perhaps more than one. And that that is what prompted Walter that along with some of the Russian activities is what prompted the Obama administration in two thousand thirteen to go back. Back and re look at its national space security related policies. And that is what started this whole discussion, which is ending up with the space force today. As far as beyond earth orbit. I mean, the US military is currently focused on its satellites in earth orbit and how they provide support to trust your warfighting. The military is not looking beyond that that's not in their current mission skull. And so if you're references is not consider China in the moon and beyond while the US military's not currently looking at beyond earth orbit. So that you know with fall into this discussion of what using mission of space force to is still remaining focused on supporting and enhancing warfare military activities on earth. Or are we looking at expanding the mission to other national security missions yonder? And that's something that is you know, there is no answer on that yet. It's currently being debated. David. Do you see that? Getting this information out to the public is is making a difference in terms of our awareness, and what we may convey to members of congress, and and to others, it's the public having a an important role in this debate yet. Well, I know we've we've had discussions with staffers and members of congress about this. And I think having a document to talk about publicly has helped in that regard. You know, believe it or not members of congress or not always up to speed on. You know, the details of some of the policy issues. They're debating particularly issues that are as highly technical and complex and classified as some of this space stuff. So in that regard, it really has helped as far as the general public. I think Dr bitch trickier, you know, the this debate about NASCAR space your priorities an organization in missions is not new we've been doing military activities and space since the nineteen fifties. And the public really hasn't been engaged in that has known about. They've been focused on NASA human spaceflight, and you know, the average astronauts are doing. You know, this is changed a bit. You know, President Trump has personally waited in on this day sports issue. And I think that has definitely raise the salience of it. And it's raised awareness among many people who were not necessarily following it before. I don't I am fortunate. I think that is resulted in there's a lot of people that now support space force because he does also people that are against the space because he supports it. And so I'm not sure if that raising the public awareness has been beneficial or not will we have yet to see. But I think, you know, in general, we hope there's going to be a more informed discussion about, you know, the real issues here. What are the US space systems, what should US policy be to deal with those how best to organize and maybe a little bit less on sort of the partisan politics side of Dr. Brian Weeden is the director of program planning for a for a secure world foundation.

"This is the John Batchelor show. Hotel Mars episode, David Livingston, Dr space, the space show is here with me as my co pilot and the debate is the space for us. I go to the vice president's words at NASA's Johnson Space center in Houston. Last month in August of two thousand eighteen the need is real said the vice president as we speak. The department of defense is moving forward with initial steps to strengthen American security in space, and we will continue to work with both parties in congress to provide the necessary authorities and funding to stand up a new branch of armed forces. The vice president also speaks of putting a US crew. Presumably in the space for us on the lunar orbital platform gateway commonly called gateway we're joined now in a debate about the space force and what direction it can take with Dr Brian Weeden. He's the director of program planning for secure world foundation. He spent decades debating space policy and operations Brian joins us from Hawaii. David Livingston, Dr space joins us from California. So I here on the east coast asked the first question, Brian a very good evening to you the vice president's reference to a. New force. A new stand up force in the Pentagon to your understanding is this welcomed by the Pentagon itself. Is this something that makes the air force and the navy and the army happy good evening to you. Brian. Getting to you. And thank you for inviting you to participate. I would say in general. Most of the bureaucracy is against the idea of a separate service to do space bought most probably think there does need to be some degree of change. How things are currently organized. Fair enough. So let me understand this. They're not certain that space forces needed. But there needs to be a lot of there needs to be thinking about what to do with this new frontier, especially because militarization is upon us. Is that how they're thinking of this Bri? I think that that that's a good summation. Now that the we've been having a debate for pretty much the last twenty years ever since let's say the wrong cell or ingenuous does one about how to organize national security space activities and by NASCAR space. I mean, the military and the intelligence activities that go on in space right now, those are primarily done by the air force and the national conference office respectively. So the question is is the right structure going forward. A space force defined as a completely separate departments slash service to do space is one specific answer to that reorganization question. David. Hi, brian. So depending on whom makes policy. I think that's probably more important than what uniform they may wear because I suspect the policy is made it higher levels than just the the new military force to spaceport so changing how you make the policy and how it's who. And who does it seems more fundamental than what uniform it's going to be worn carrying out that policy? Am I going wrong someplace or is that a good perspective? I think that's a very important point. So from the perspective of space policy sort of the overarching document at the top is what we typically the national space policy and just about every presidential administration. Since Eisenhower has issued one of those and those policies are usually produced by the national Security Council or an equivalent White House level interagency body, and they they involve bringing together representatives from State Department and defense department and Commerce Department treasury and all the other agencies and departments that have a say, and they spent you know, they spend several months or more kind of discussing what goes in the policy and then at the end it's coordinated and signed out by the president the last official national space policy of the US government. It was a priest on the Obama administration in two thousand ten when the Trump administration came in. They produced a space policy directive one wish changed part of that ring to kind of the goals for human spaceflight. But in general have since left the overall space policy intact now beneath that are bunch of others policies that are specific topics. So the Trump administration has produced a new national space strategy, which is sort of not really a strategy. It's more like a policy put it focuses more on the security aspects of space policy, and there they largely have kept the same broad themes that we've seen since Eisenhower with some tweaks to the to the to the dressing and the rhetoric around it. But I think you're right. And that that was very important process because that is how we get all the different departments and agencies and the government they use space sort of on the same page. Brower approach is going to be early. One last piece to this though is that one of the big unanswered questions is what is the mission of the space force going to beat and that is a very important policy question that has not yet been answer. Earlier this year, you provided a a glimpse of what that policy could be when you and your colleagues issued global counter space capabilities in open source assessment, this is April of two thousand eighteen months before the vice president's spoke, and so we can presume that they were familiar with this in the building. What is an your on? You have an executive summary here that it said, very trenchant. What is from this recommendation? You call it's called counter space that you want the Pentagon to debate Brian. What are the points here that the Pentagon is likely to have to solve before they can launch? Our report was an attempt to put in the public domain. There's been a lot of rhetoric. Some politicians is either military leadership the last several years of bounce threats to the US based systems, and you know, references to things that Russia and China are doing in space, the US is worried about but very little detail has been provided because of the classification of the intelligence sources behind us. We felt it was important to put out smoking source ref materials on this. So we could have more of a public discussion because we think that the the where the US policy goes on this could have repercussions for all the other users of space, which includes us, it includes the burgeoning commercial space industry includes a whole host of things beyond just the national security users, David. Brian given where we are. Now in the discussion and debate do you think we need a special space force or a division of the air force, or what would your recommendations be? Well, the answer your question rolls. How you see what the problems are? I think in general people would say the problems are that they're frustrated with the, you know, they feel the air force has not given space. The prioritization, that it might neither it tastes kind of a back seat to the aircraft in the air power. Missions of the air force. Does there's a lot of frustrations over the acquisition system and the long time. It takes to build new satellites and military experience capabilities frustrations over the quality of creating a cadre space experts in which to me talented. There's not that many of them within your force. And so that is all I think there's large agreement that those are all the problems. You know, the question is what the solution in my opinion. I'm not convinced. A completely separate service is the best answer. Because I think that entails a lot of extra challenges that we have to work through as opposed to some of the other options, the one that I would have probably preferred as one is the core concept, this is very much akin to the Marine Corps. So the marines are a separate corps that exists within the department of the navy. So they have their own culture, they have their own uniforms their own doctrine their own manual acquisition programs, but they rely on the department of the navy for a lot of the administrative and overhead. I feel that you know, creating space corps akin to that under the department of the air force would have perhaps been a better solution to allow more independence for the space forces while not burdening them with all this overhead that you're going to have to do if there is a completely separate service and department we're speaking with Dr Brian Weeden, director of programming planning for secure world. Foundations foundation is the website s w found dot org. We're discussing space force has proposed by the vice president in the summer of two thousand eighteen as a separate force within the Pentagon, and what is the mission, and what is to be done in these interim days, David Livingston, Dr space of the space show is my colleague and co-host this. This hotel Mars, we're gonna turn this specific threats that the space force or the those in the Pentagon who are working on space issues must deal within the foreseeable future. When we come back. And of course, the threat spells China. I'm John Batchelor. This is the John Batchelor show..

"Typically they played under the same Zach system year in year out that quarterback that we would say, right and Eli has been going through different offensive coordinators change. Personnel change this change that I think bring back somebody that's been in house before understands, the optics are going to help tremendously. So I'm excited to see them get back when feel obviously, yes, I'm bias no doubt about that, but I'm biased for good reason and that's because I know that I know what kind of person is look like. Pat Shurmur has he's, he's seen success Sam Bradford best year. His rookie year was with German, right? He failed before is the head coach Cleveland, but lots of guys have failed their even Bill Belichick integrate with eighty great with Minnesota last year with their revolving door, like for for a head coach, he's a pretty good quarterback whisper, really. The giants is here. I didn't love the giants, not a three win team. We know they're they're much better than the eight nine. Give you eight as a jets fan. That means possible. Elsewhere in the preseason. It's in high gear this weekend with the match up between two of last year's most interesting young quarterbacks, Jimmy, Jesus also known as Jimmy Garoppolo and Shawn Watson both looked great. Last time they were on a field last season with Jimmy g. going undefeated Shawn Watson, turning Houston into a scoring machine. There's a small sample size, but expectations are, of course sky high, Jimmy Garoppolo when he signed his contract was the biggest in the history of the league and everyone myself included things. If to Shawn Watson stays healthy, the sky could be the limit. I guess the question would be, who do you have greater expectations for this season? I talked to Brian Weeden who's backup quarterback with the Houston, Texas. He's like, look, if Sean learns to to to to get down when he slides stay in the pocket a little bit more. He's got a chance to be the NFL's MVP. He's that good because he has the leadership quality. The. Football intelligence, the emotional intelligence to relate to guys. I think he's got some swag because even though college football doesn't actually translate to the National Football League, all those guys saw that he beat Alabama. He won national championship for Clemson, like that carries some weight in the locker room of some young players like this dude. Got it. I just it's, it's off his second ACL injury, and you got remember last year they put in the college offense which really worked. They're gonna try and make them into more of a pro style quarterback. I think there could be some bumps along the way before he gets to his potential call Jimmy g. here who who will have the better season Janney. Ooh, yes, yes, because I saw I saw Matt Ryan as the MVP when mile Shanahan was offensive coordinator. Look, I think he's, I think that entire staff is outstanding. I think you got Goodwin as potential elite wide receiver. Slow down. Marquette Goodwin is an elite receiver on potential potential elite wide receiver. Look, they rebuilt that thing from scratch. You look at the end. That Jimmy g. had and how that team was on the path to being the number one or number two. In terms of worst record in the National Football League, they win five against three playoff teams, and I'll grant you the Rams, shut it down week, seventeen, but they beat the jacks. And that was a that was a hell of a Jags defense, and he lit them up. They beat the Tennessee titans. That was a pretty good Tennessee titans defense. And and we saw an NFL films just his attention to detail how he studied under the ultimate wizard. Like I think Jimmy Garoppolo he's been a league longer. He's has. He has a better offensive system than the one we've seen in Houston, and he's giving me running the same system..
