"I believe this. It was the summer of 69 when Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong landed on and walked on the moon. Wow. 5 more Apollo missions followed over the next handful of years, landed on the moon. And then we stopped going to the moon. Now, 50 years later, NASA is sending astronauts back to the moon within the next probably year and a half. And you're probably thinking, oh, peace cake, right? I mean, look at all the cool things we can do. We have a space station. We have we're testing to send people to Mars. We've got that Kepler space telescope taking pictures like of the Big Bang, the moon is like nothing, right? Think again. It is so hard to land on the freaking moon that it will blow your mind. And you know I love the space program, so check this out. Okay, for starters, there is no GPS that works on the moon. There is no GPS on the moon, and that means a couple of things. Because there's no satellite network and circling the moon, and there's no leg cameras looking at the moon. When they go to land on the moon, they really have to use their eyes and their instincts and their training. In fact, the very first moon landing, Neil Armstrong grabbed control of the Apollo lander because the computer on board the ship had led the crew to this field that was just covered in freaking boulders. You can not land on a boulder because chances are good that if you accidentally land on a boulder on the moon, you're going to live a very short life and die on the moon. They're never going to be able to get you back. There were all these when Neil Armstrong grabbed control of the lunar lander, alarms were going off. Lights were flashing, a fuel gauge was saying fuel running out, fuel running out. And there is Neil Armstrong trying to manually land on the freaking moon and they did it. Well, that 50 years ago experience has not really changed. We have a couple of things that we can do now. We have some modern technology that has a camera on board the spacecraft that's taking pictures of the ground and mapping it and doing math and calculations to help them avoid landing on a boulder, but they're still no guarantees. Here's the other reason that getting onto the moon is so hard. There's no atmosphere. So like when spacecraft reenter the Earth's atmosphere, part of the reason that they're on fire is because the friction from the atmosphere causes so much heat, but it's doing something really powerful. It's slowing the spacecraft or the meteor or whatever down. There's no atmosphere on the moon, which means the only way to slow down is to hit the brakes, except there are no brakes on these spacecraft. Instead, they release propellant that kind of helps them navigate and change their trajectory and slows them down that way. Problem is there's a limited amount of propellant that they can take because space, everything is such an issue. Everything has to be as condensed and compressed and small as possible. And they can not afford to make a mistake. They literally have one shot to land on the moon because they don't have enough propellant or fuel or time to make a mistake and do another rotation and come back again. Think about that. And that's today. That's not even 50 years ago when they were literal space cowboys. Here's another thing. The astronauts for NASA's new mission, which is called Artemis, are going to land inside a moon crater at the lunar South Pole. Why? Because they think that there's a lot of ice, which is another way of saying water on the moon. Ice and other minerals and valuable resources in the moon's South Pole. So they're going to land in this create in this crater, but check this out. At the South Pole of the moon, the sun never passes overhead. It's always near the horizon. There are these really long shadows that make it difficult to figure out what's happening on the surface, not just for the astronauts human eyeballs, but for those terrain navigation cameras. So they're going to land in the dark shadowy, frozen, completely unknown, South Pole region of the moon, inside a crater. Now I recognize that most of humanity is way more interested in who gets the rose on the next bachelor. I get that. But human beings that are made out of meat are launching into space to try to visually land on the freaking moon. And they're going to do it inside a crater in perpetual darkness. Wow. That is impressive. You know what else is impressive? Buzz Aldrin, the great Buzz Aldrin, one of our original astronauts. Just turned 93 years of age. And got married to a gorgeous blond. Who is 63 years old. He's 93, and just got married. He is going to be going where no 93 year old man has gone before, and I cheer him on. I was so happy for him. He said, we're like teenagers. 93 years old and she is an absolute knockout. They've been together for a long time. And I love that someone who's 93 years old. Is making a lifetime commitment. To their partner. That's just pure romance. We had him on the show and he described that because those space suits were so big, they broke a switch inside that lunar lander, and he had to manually put a piece of a pen a ballpoint pen in there in order to land it their first landing on the moon. These guys are beyond human. They really are. They really are. It's Superman. If you listen to my new podcast, true weird stuff. You'll hear lots of cool things about the space program because I'm addicted to it. All of it weird, all of it true. And the fact that a human being had to use a ballpoint pen to get on and off the freaking moon. It certainly makes you realize that you probably don't

"Today, and you know, I was going to play it now, but I think it would have saved after the break. It's a very special moment. You know, Joe Biden who finds himself in a immersed in a monster scandal right now. He took the time out from the scandal, which was really nice, Jimmy, you think that this thing happy birthday to Buzz Aldrin, one of the world's most accomplished astronauts, buzz is a buzzard good man. Was he 93? So happy birthday buzz. Yeah, Joe Biden, like I said, took some time out. So we'll play that because it's pretty magical. One, Joe Biden obviously is a gifted singer. I mean, I think he said once he was a world class opera singer with 7 number one hits and two gold records. Dan, he didn't say that. One of the three tenors, one of the 6 tenors. He forgot there was only three. So come on, Dan, he didn't say that. You don't know that. The way Joe Biden lies, there's a damn good chance, a drunken party one day. He in fact did tell someone that. There's a darn good chance if it was hidden video following him around all the time. I can almost guarantee we said that. I mean, he'll say anything. Joe Biden's obviously trying to cover up now that demands a foreign agent. Now, over the last three days, we've made a pretty conclusive case at FBI former FBI contact of mine reached out yesterday and said, Dan, I think you're onto something. And the two 7 9 are reached out to and said, Dan, I think you're onto something with this Biden covering up the fact that he's a foreign agent for China and Ukraine and elsewhere. And I'm really puzzled this to again, this isn't some kind of effort at hyperbole. I'm genuinely puzzled. Why no one else has picked up on this story in detail. You don't find it odd that the paperwork that's allegedly missing is about Iran, China, and Ukraine, while Biden's son was according to multiple reports, was doing multi-million dollar deals with China, Ukraine, and other countries, I mean, no one finds that strange. I mean, this is earth shaking. You know, don't be afraid. Don't get ahead of the facts. You don't need to promote conspiracy theories or whatever. But the facts are right there. You don't have to get ahead of them. You're not going to get out ahead of your skis. I'll show you what

"The weak rating when it comes to our Space Force or NASA or anything like that. So I think we definitely have to beef it up. Now, on an aside, something I know a little bit about when it comes to spaceships is what I learned from a guy named Buzz Aldrin. When I worked for governor Chris Christie and I was with the state of New Jersey, I went to the New Jersey Hall of Fame induction ceremony as a guest. And one of the inductees was west orange, New Jersey born, I believe. That's where he was born. Buzz Aldrin. Now, doctor Buzz Aldrin was one of the two first guys to walk on the moon. Neil Armstrong being the other astronaut that did. And you know, I met a lot of people that night, but meeting Buzz Aldrin was really cool because, I mean, you know, he's like the inspiration behind buzz light year from Toy Story. And I just thought it was super cool. So I asked him, I said, you know, what was it like? And he says, well, I'll tell you this. He said, you know, I would have been the first man to walk on the moon, but I got nervous. Because my last name is Aldrin and Niels last name is Armstrong. So if we went AL versus AR and we went alphabetical order, I was going to go out first. He said, but I got nervous and I put my hands on his shoulder and I said, go for it. And it kind of pushed him out the door first, and he became the first man to walk on the moon And I said, that's a funny story. And he said, but I'll tell you what I was first at. And I said, what's that? And he said, I was the first guy to go pee pee in the potty. Outside. And so apparently, you know, cover the little ears that are open at this hour, but he urinated on the moon, and he wanted to be the first guy to urinate in his trip to the moon. I don't know how he did that with a space suit on or how that went or how those suits are created. But that was a very interesting factoid that I got from Neil Armstrong. And another interesting tidbit that you can share with people is the other first that he wanted to be was the first Catholic to take communion on the moon and he brought the wafer and the wine with him and I don't know if he missed when he took the shot of wine because again of the weightlessness, but I know that he brought it up there and that was his first as well since he didn't actually walk out of the Apollo first. And it was just so cool to meet a part of history. I think most people don't have that opportunity on a regular basis. I know I'm grateful for it. And that's my story about astronauts. So anyway, there's more to come straight ahead. We're going to get to your calls.

We can go all night. Be like with one of those dance marathons, these two back in there were people danced until they fall over. I'm supposed to be home at 9 o'clock. Okay, well then we got like 17 minutes. Cool. So first thing we're going to talk about is. So I saw first man last weekend. Yeah, yes, Ron Gosling. And Claire Foy, who was in the queen. She's the new girl who dragon tattoo or whatever. Looks good in the previews. She's versatile. Versatile is what would you say? I would say beans. Yep, first House beans. Cool. And so saw that, there was kind of a controversy around that and I'm going to kind of bounce this off of you, see what you think. The big deal was obviously it's about Neil Armstrong. And so if you have never read any kind of history book in your entire life, he walks on the moon with the Apollo 11 mission. He and Buzz Aldrin. And the big thing is that they do not depict in this movie the astronauts planting the American flag on the lunar surface as they did in real life. And so that has they don't show it at all or they don't show it as it happened. They don't show it. They omit it completely. And so that has some controversy. All about the lead up and not actually the they show them landing on the moon and walking, but they do not depict them planting in American flag. Oh, so people are butt hurt over flag and flag related items. Yes. Yes. It is offended some sensibilities. And I mean, I get where they're coming from. And because I like to see both sides to, you know, all kind of just, you know, issues of the day, and I would like to say in this regard, welcome. Yeah. I see both sides of it too. I mean, the thing that on one hand is Neil Armstrong, obviously had a lot of time on the way to the moon to think about what he was doing. What he was going to say, because 800 million people are watching you on TV. It's like, gotta come up with something. And so he had some time to think about what his line was going to be. You can get a good look at it two months take by a second or have a bull's ass bow and try to take the butcher's word for it. It doesn't have the quite zooming ring. That was one of the last like that was it was either that or one small step for man. Yeah. He met in his statement. He deliberately left it open. He didn't say this is one giant leap for United States of America. He said, he purposefully included everybody. So he wanted out there to be a global event..

If you can afford to go to space you probably not on the right side of the fight. As far as i'm concerned no we don't have anything to talk about if they think it's like an accomplishment like look i'm like hey buddy can't connect to you man. I don't even you know.

Branson, Bezos, Musk: The Billionaire Space Race

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

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

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

"The source. We see that's also been associated with viral video those describing this and got shared everywhere on facebook and probably on read it and so on and so on and so on. But what do we know about the actual newspaper the the daily star so. Yeah i mean it's what they dub a tabloid the daily star It's published Monday through saturday in the uk. And it's been doing that since november. Second of nineteen seventy eight. Can we just take a quick second to have tabloid. It seems like always a term of derision like a term implying. Fake news or some kind of Sensationalized flimflam ring. How you guys see it well. It's definitely the motivation. There is to sell more papers the motivation any paper is to sell more papers right. But in this case the let's say the journalistic integrity may be isn't as important in. This is tough to even say about anything. Because i've never worked at the daily star. I don't know what the bosses they're shade during their all hands meetings they may be. They're telling the gods honest truth and they're like why haven't we been killed. Yeah why don't people believe us. Batboys out this. Is it as bad boy type stuff. Well there are different. Grady gradation say of tabloid. Yeah technically tabloid. We'll used to not be a derogatory term. It's format of a newspaper. That's not as large and is about half the size of a standard newspaper and it has more popular reporting. You're going to see more stuff about celebi. Paparazzi type stuff. And you know speculating about who's cheating on. Bread and circuses. Yeah absolutely and in some cases in a lot of cases here in the states at least when you go to the grocery store you will typically see the tabloids oriented toward celebrities at the checkout line But there used to be back in the day really cool ones like weekly world news.

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

See what it's like. Don't step on puppies. But they got to step on the moon yep and buzz aldrin would go on to be a pretty Interestingly outspoken character saying some things that lead to some pretty interesting speculation really fed the conversation around what could be going on out there.

The Speech Richard Nixon Never Gave

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

SPACE FARCE

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

G and he is the founder and principal of rich g high performance coaching in his role rich supports a broad range of people who seek to improve their on the job. Results and career outcomes. After nearly a year of workplace disruption from covid professionals are seeking ways to get unstuck to find and adopt new strategies. That will make them effective leaders in their field support. And that's where riches involvements with them truly payoff we cover a lot of ground in this episode including how rich engages with professionals to help them succeed but we also venture into other areas of discussion including how changes in the workplace affect worker performance and richest thoughts on how the gig economy will help us to find into meaningful work. I spoke with rich g in december. Twenty twenty over zoom ritchie. Welcome to the podcast dan. It's a pleasure to be here on a cold december morning. No it's raining outside so before we get started. I was wondering if you could tell us about your company. G high performance coaching. What is that exactly. And how do you provide value to your clients. That's a question. I get a lot because a lot of people don't know what coaching inns. So i usually start out whenever. I do a workshop or all webinar presentation of product group. I always start with this quote by buzz aldrin. There are people who make things happen and there are people who watch things happen and there are people who wonder what happened. Who are you going to be. Twenty twenty one. And that's really what encapsulates. Mike coaching is that i get you to make things happen. A lot of people sit by the sidelines ago. How did he do that. How did she do that. Oh my goodness. I get you there so i help people step back and look at their career or their business from the long perspective. What's working what isn't working. Is it time for a change. And that's a critical juncture. A lot of people are afraid of changing something that they think has worked for years in isn't working right now but they're afraid to change it to get them out of that comfort zone into an area that might scare them a little bit and most importantly how do i make that change. So let's talk about the high performers. You coach how would you describe them. And the work that they do high performers is kind of like a misnomer but those are the people out there. And you're probably wanna you are one but a lot of your listeners. Are high performers. There are people out there crushing it every day. But they feel that they might have hit a ceiling crest in their career or their business and they need someone to help them break through to the next level or they're stuck or have been blindsided in their career and have to get back up in start crushing again. So that's why. I'm not near life forever like cable tv. I'm there for about a months or a year or two to help you get back into crushing it. So what motivates someone to pick up the phone and call you rich well. They want to accelerate their success. That doesn't just mean money. It's increasing the challenges. The interactions the fund of business. We all look for and they pick up the phone because they realize they can't do it alone. They hear from a colleague or trusted friend that they should maybe hire a coach. It's very common for who's successful executives in business owners to have a coach. They don't advertise it. And i'm one of the best kept secrets in. Since

Security operations centers: a first principle idea.

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

What Moon Landing?

"In the nineteen sixties, two things were happening more things are happening to. One it just two things. disclaimer were bottle of wine in the first one is the Cold War, which was basically between the US and the US are that started after the end of World War Two and nineteen, forty eight and lasted until nineteen ninety-one notice how I know when World War Two was. Throwing shade at the orange. I've had wine I'm a little snarky year. Then I'm not upset the way. The second thing was happening was the Vietnam War, which lasted between nineteen, fifty, five, and nineteen, seventy five. I did not think that was when on. Okay. But seriously I didn't realize the lasted that long either I thought it started like late late. Late mid to late sixties and went into the seventies. Yeah. Holy moly history is important because not only does it give us context as to why things happens, but it also serves as a blueprint showing what not to do if anyone literally anyone decided to pay attention in history class but whatever Got I. Him. So I'm fine. So in the nineteen sixties, the US was dealing with two things one they're trying to get the upper hand in and the other they're trying to distract the public from. Does that make sense had wine? Yes. Okay. Basically, it was a perfect time for the US government to distract everybody Hooker Luna verse. Where you're mass please. And this is why they decided to fake the moon landing. Where's the wind. please. Oh happy day. This explain why it started drinking. I'm so happy right now just help it off girl you're in need it I wanna make sure Rebecca some two but no, I don't just doing with to me this is a subject but I chose up my own free will thank you so much. This is going to be amazing. Okay. But why why would we do this? The US was currently racing the USSR to be the first to the moon and the fastest way to do that would be to fake it's. Kinda like when you're never mind. There it is. Oh, we made it two minutes. That's where we learned it from. The Moon and Do to the bad press the Vietnam War Gotten General the moon landing would serve as the. Distraction at the time luckily in this day and age that only have hundreds of people been able to see through the thin veil that is as opposed moon landing but have also been able to poke holes and this historical events. Can we make sure that you know take this is poured slash s please. You can't tell that from my voice I can I only sound this way when it's bullying? Sixties radio. Broadcaster Boys. Here for all of it. So now we're going to dive into reasons why are evidence as to why the moon landing did not happen? Okay. GimMe all of it I is there's no wind on the moon correct in the flag was waving. Yep that's pretty much where we're going. Imagine this iconic scene, the year is nineteen sixty nine. Neil. Armstrong. Neil. Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin are on the face of this lunar body preparing especially made us flag plant on the moon as they're securing the flag in a never ending show of colonization Oh my God something curious happens the flag starts waving in the winds, which is weird because there is no wind on the moon.

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

What's the Buzz on Alcohol in Space?

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

Why Two Moonships Were Better Than One

"In this scientific American sixty seconds science I'm Christine Herman July Twentieth Marks Fifty Years Since human human beings I landed on the moon that momentous day in Nineteen sixty-nine made astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin household names but years before that a lesser known figure was on a mission to make that first moon landing possible. His name was John Kobylt. The son of Dutch immigrants cobalt grew up on a farm in Joliet Illinois. He studied engineering at the University of Illinois and eventually worked his way to NASA it was there in the early sixties that he put his career on the line to champion champion what was at the time an unpopular idea but would ultimately be critical to getting Apollo Eleven to the moon and safely back. John faced a mixture of indifference at times abuse and at times ridicule that he never forgot. Not until things started to change and engineers started to realize his data might be right todd's Willik author of the new audible original spoken word book about Holtz Life. It's called the man who knew the way to the moon so what was whole bolts unpopular idea. He championed what's called Lunar Orbit Rendezvous. The concept involves sending a spacecraft into orbit around the moon and from there sending only a small lightweight craft down to the moon's surface instead of the entire ship is will excess. Says while Holt didn't invent the idea he was the one who started to apply it to the technologies that were within Nastase grasp at the time most of the people who know the most about this mission feel that without lunar orbit rendezvous Apollo couldn't have succeeded exceeded and without John Kobylt you probably wouldn't have had lunar orbit rendezvous will expose also explores the kinds of challenges NASA engineers face today as they make plans to get back to the moon and ultimately to Mars when you talk about Mars Gosh one one hundred fifty million miles orders of magnitude of a bigger problem. Do we do some form of Martian orbit rendezvous. Do we send a station build a station in Martian orbit that we can stage down to the surface to manage all that mass a lot of problems.
