"X paint the scene for us. Is it a big crowd down there? Is there a lot of interest What's it look like? Well, this is the 25th launch that we have had this year, the second human spaceflight launch we've had from the Kennedy Space Center, and they were expecting as many as half a million people Tombo along the beaches and causeways within 20 miles of the Kennedy Space Center to be able to see this, And obviously there's a concern because of the lack of social distancing and that kind of thing, But there is always a huge interest and keep in mind. That thousands of jobs were lost here a decade ago, when the shuttle was getting ready to be retired. Some of those jobs have come back and here in central Florida it's always exciting when there's activity at the Kennedy Space Center and Cape Canaveral Air Force Station and Peter briefly, can you tell us a little bit of a little about the crew? You've got some rookie astronauts and some veterans. Well, we've got one rookie Victor Glover, who is the space rookie, But he's an experienced pilot 300,000 hours flying time, and he's made 400 carrier landing. So, uh, this guy, I hesitate to call him a rookie commander Mike Hopkins, flight engineer Shannon Walker and Soichi Noguchi from Japan. They've all stayed on the international space station before nearly 450 days, their combined and they're all experienced astronauts, and here's one piece of trivia for you. The Gucci becomes the third human to fly three different spacecraft into space, following Wally Schirra and John Young. All righty. Peter King, CBS news correspondent at Kennedy Space Center. Peter will be with us through the evening. We will check back with him as we monitor this launch.

That's pretty much what this thing is, but they'll the middle one is a paper towel tube. So I guess if you put two toilet paper tubes next to page all tube. There you go. That's the that's a Delta 4-heavy rocket in a nutshell but this thing has actual power and is not recyclable. As far as I know like a paper towel holders. So the space launch complex 37 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station and Florida's where this is going to be launching and this is to be the 141st Michigan for u l a and the 29th for the nro and it is the 385th Delta launch since nineteen sixty the 12th Delta 4-heavy and the 8th heavy faith in our oh so we don't know exactly what the payload is but it's a super duper secret. It's a spy satellite as far as we know and we're not exactly sure. What kind of spy satellite it is. We're off. You spying on nothing like that? We're not exactly sure where this thing goes to so the launch will be not televised after wage. It clears a certain height, so it'll probably get to Max Q. Of course, it will get to Max Q. It's not those know probably about it. They're going to get through Max Q. They're going to do a stage separation then after they do the stage separation. We're probably not going to get a feed after that because it's a spy satellite up. So these launches as much as we love them. They're usually kind of short and they're fun. So check out our YouTube channel, of course, like I said before youtube.com snooze pod for the launch, so I want to say thank you to everybody who's been supporting the channel.

Ask questions hang out, you know be be a resource for people, you know, if you have information that other people don't have it's cool to have a lot of bunch of people in shed usually have about a thousand people show up during the show. So it's pretty fun. So thanks everybody for checking out this podcast the space news. It's available on any podcast platform, of course, and also check out space news for all the launch details and new merch that we have to because we have really cool stuff. Thanks. Again.

What's next for Solar Orbiter after its historic launch to the sun
"Hey brain stuff lauren. Boban here a newly launched spacecraft promises to broaden our understanding of the sun called solar orbiter or the Solo for short it left Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Central Florida on Sunday February. Ninth at three PM. The new probes part of an international collaboration between NASA and the European Space Agency or ESA both parties contributed to its arsenal of scientific instruments. Some of these gadgets will remotely image the Sun It's atmosphere and the materials it spews forth others are built to keep tabs on the spacecraft's immediate surroundings during the wee hours of February tenth. Two Thousand Twenty European Space Operation Center in Darmstadt Germany got a signal confirming the orbiter's on board solar panels were functioning correctly so begins a seven year plan mission the orbiter is supposed to take to paraphrase. Robert Frost the route less traveled. You see all the planets in our solar system revolve around the sun on the same General Plane. Give or take a few degrees called the ecliptic plane. It's like a giant invisible disk a one that very nearly lines up with Sun's equator most of our space fearing devices are gravitationally confined to this plane but the so low is meant to escape it by exploiting the gravity of Earth and Venus the probe will orbit the sun on a unique and tilted pathway. This unique trajectory will give the solo twenty two close approaches to the Sun as close as twenty six million miles or thirty five million kilometers as well as bringing it within the orbit of Mercury to study the sun's influence on space. It will also give the solo the chance to do something no craft has ever done before take pictures of the solar polls looking down from above or up from below just like Earth. The Sun has a north and South Pole in two thousand eighteen the ESA used data from the probe to satellite trying to determine what the northern pole looks like. But probe to couldn't photograph this region directly. If all goes according to plan the solo will do just that. It's I close pass by. The Sun will be twenty twenty at about a third the distance from the Sun to Earth. And that's just the beginning. Another mission involves SOLO PARTNERING UP WITH BE Parker Solar probe launched in two thousand eighteen. This space craft is able to fly much closer to the sun and the solo ever will comparing the feedback from both probes. Ought to tell us. A great deal about the mysterious phenomenon called solar wind which are streams of charged particles. Any color pictures that the solo gives us should provide relevant insights to the sun's polar probably have a big effect on its atmosphere as a whole along with the winds unleashes. The Solos unique travel plans will put it in contact with intense heat and extreme cold. The new probe is going to revolve around the Sun. Very long very narrow oval shaped orbit as it nears the Star. Things will get rather toasty. And that's why designers fitted solar orbiter with reflective heat shield coated in titanium foil according to NASA this shield stand temperatures as high as nine hundred seventy degrees Fahrenheit or five hundred and twenty degrees Celsius.

So if you have work if you have school totally understand so I will be there and hope you can watch it or catch the replay on the channel. That's youtube dot com slash space. News pod so SPACEX Will be sending the JC set eighteen Kasich one communications satellite for the launch after the Sierra S. nineteen launch it's going to be no earlier than December fifteenth from Space Launch Complex Forty at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida It will require relatively quick turnaround on the launchpad. Because I mean they got to get back from the SIERRAS nineteen eighteen mission right so we have the the boosters ready to go after Sarah's nineteen mission which is December fourth in December fifteenth. That's the crew has to really work. That's eleven days to get this thing going. And there are two other possible missions before the end of this year here and that is the inflight abort test for Crew Dragon. Now Crew Dragon in the past has had some troubles rebels. They have had a little explosion and they had to go through all the NASA red tape all of the orchestration of all of that stuff and now they're back to a good place in there hoping let's get our fingers crossed here. They want to send people to the International Space Station from the US soil by early next year. So February spacex the sex is possibly sending people to the with the crew. Dragon now Boeing. They have their capsule as well and they. You are going to be going head to head at this point. February is slated for both teams to tentatively launch launch some people's up to the ISS. This'll be the first time that Americans have launched other Americans from America in an American rocket in an American capsule. There was built here in America. America more. I think I sound like Jim. Brian inside the head of NASA. He says all the time. It'd be launching. US astronauts on a US rocket from US soil. But I digress. Okay so we haven't sent anybody up to the ISS from US soil since the space shuttle was discontinued. And so this is a really big deal in this next SPACEX launch. Possibly by the end of this year is really important to that. The Crew Dragon spacecraft needs to be tested SPACEX and NASA. Working really close together to get this thing fine-tuned and get it really Up Up to par for the launch so there also might be some other SPACEX launches another Starlink launch Asia. Sixty more satellites into low-earth orbit. This is the third one and they might do by the end of this month. this man man. That's a lot of stuff in one month and you know it's also possible which it probably not gonNA happen. I really wanted to. That'd be really cool. Some hover tests for starship is not technically a launch but could be hover test. So you know. There's probably not going to happen. But it's possible. CASO STARLINK LINC. will probably between be between the twelfth and the fourteenth and if they do it now they're probably not I can do it until next year again so the reason for that is because commercial crew program to get the US astronauts from US soil at a US rocket back to the ISS. Take up a lot of their time. And there's also going to be you you know all the other stuff Starlink starship if they're going to be doing the hover tests after the tests are going to be doing some launches higher and higher hundreds of feet in the air and then an orbital test after an orbital test. They WanNa get people around the moon in a couple of years years but then like three years so if they want to send a rocket around the moon and back that's going to be absolutely amazing and they you have to kind of focus on that once the darling satellites go up. They're going to be up there. They might want to get this done. You know get done get over with in that guest starship just focus mainly on starship because Starlink You know it's very important for the money aspect of space x but starship You know can kind of you know could not built itself. They have enough money through NASA that they're going to continue to do NASA launches in these Starlink think things but sterling's GonNa put billions of dollars into spacex his pockets so without starlink the news news. You know starship isn't going to be as cool as we thought it was going to be. They're not they're going to have to look for funding elsewhere. Or you know kind of I wouldn't say struggle will but they're going to have to look other places to to fund this so that's about it for now everybody.

Autonomous helicopter joins its rover buddy for Mars 2020 mission
"A mars helicopter so this thing it's a very small quad copter think of it is <hes> what else toy drones you could buy from amazon for kinda cheap but this isn't very cheap and it's not very small. It's about the size is of a shoebox with the rotors about <hes> about four feet wide and this helicopter is not mission critical go so they just attached this to the belly of the mars rover in the high one cleanroom at jet propulsion propulsion laboratory in pasadena california sing is solar powered and it has the mars helicopter delivery system which which will deliver well deliver the the helicopter to mars and also that's what helps it launch and <hes> <hes> shields it from debris during entry descent and landing the helicopter will remain encapsulated in the mars helicopter the delivery system after landing deploying to the surface once a suitable area conduct test flights is found in the crater where they land now. It's a very high risk high reward technology demonstration. If this helicopter encounters difficulties difficulties the science of the mars twenty twenty mission won't be impacted but if the helicopter is successful and if it takes flight is designed the future missions to mars could possibly have other quad captors other drone copters. Yes that could deploy when they get there so <hes> spokesman from g._p._l. Said our job is to. I prefer to prove that autonomous controlled flight can be executed in the extremely thin martian atmosphere since our helicopter is designed as a flight test of experimental technology carries no science instruments but if he proved powered flight on mars can work we look forward to the day when mars helicopters aw can play an important role in future explorations of the red planet. Mars is big world and there's lots of geography on mars. There's cliffs caves in deep craters that a rover just can't get too and that's why something like a helicopter like a quad copter is very important to the future missions on the red planet. They can act as scouts. They can film inside caves. They can film inside craters. That could take pictures. They could take amazing photos of things that we would never be able to see if we were just relying on rovers and nasa intends to establish a sustained human presence on the moon through there nasa artemis miss lunar exploration missions and they could possibly use <hes> quite captors on the moon as well so <hes> jim breitenstein nastase administrator said the rate brothers flew the first plane kitty hawk north carolina but they built it in dayton and the mars helicopter destined to be the first aircraft to fly in another world was built in pasadena california join now to the twenty twenty rover. It is yet another example of how nasa artemis generation is expanding humanities reach in our solar system with this joining of two grace spacecraft. I can say definitively. I believe that all the pieces are in place for historic mission of exploration together mars twenty twenty and the mars helicopter will help define the future of science and exploration of the red planet for decades to come mars twenty twenty with the helicopter on board will launch an a u._c._l._a. Atlas five rocket in in july of twenty twenty from space launch complex forty one it cape canaveral air force station in florida in it'll land on mars <music> on february eighteenth of twenty twenty one the rover will be the first space craft and the history of planetary exploration with the ability to accurately re target its point if touchdown during the landing sequence and this new helicopter the mars twenty twenty helicopter it could possibly return so amazing results showing that we can fly a helicopter on another world and if that's the case. There's going to be a lot of saying. It's happening with a lot more helicopters in the future

That's the point where the vehicle it was infrasonic the highest dynamic stresses so what we do is we bring down the engines a little bit pass through that point and throttle back up once the atmosphere her continues to drop off above that point vehicle is experiencing maximum aerodynamic so now we're through that point imagine to dynamic pressure now coming up are are a series of rapid events main engine cutoff than stage separation followed by second engine start of the second stage's merlin vacuum engine and then the first stage is gonna conduct boost back burn followed by a dragon nosecone deploy now managing cutoff or meco is where all nine merlin roland one d engines on the first stage will shut down followed shortly after that stage separation and then a few seconds later the merlin vacuum engine engine on the second stage will ignite to boost dragon into lower orbit in fact during a sent you heard the call out for engine chillan of that merlin vacuum engine stage separation from sort of and you can hear the cheers behind me. That's a successful start the of the merlin vacuum engine and boost back maneuver of the first stage shortly here. We should have nosecone deploy off dragon. We no longer need it now.

SpaceX finally knows what caused its Crew Dragon capsule to explode
"SpaceX has released the results of the accident investigation after crew capsule exploded during a ground test the explosion in April destroyed the spacecraft and dealt a blow to the company's effort to launch astronauts KCRW's Larry Pareil reports SpaceX's dragon capsule had just returned without astronauts after a successful test flight he was going to the international space station and was undergoing a ground test April twentieth at Cape Canaveral Air Force station the abort system thrusters were one hundred milliseconds away from firing when the spacecraft exploded and was destroyed the company's vice president said a valve leaked into that high pressure system causing it to ignite and blow up the company said it will make the necessary repairs to the system and work on other capsules but it's unlikely astronauts will fly by year's end the company declined to give a tentative launch date for the test flight with astronauts because more issues could crop up in the coming months no word on NASA's partnership with Boeing Nessa's commercial crew program manager says the companies have been looking to send astronauts to the space station by the end of this year but would not give a date either Boeing has yet to conduct a test space flight of its star wonder capsule without anyone on board they say it may have been late this summer NASA astronauts have not launched from the U.

"Dollars a month or more you get access to the headline show that I do every single weekend. You get a special fee dropped that right in the player that you're listening to right now and every weekend you get a little show of me running through the headlines. I say little this week was about thirty minutes long because it was just so much get through. But it's a great way to stay up. All that space news all week. Let me do the work. So you don't have to think it's a really really great thing that we've done over the last year. So and it's been a lot of fun to do it. So go check that out if you want to help support the show. All right one little bit of good news here. So we don't end on a sour note for this episode of managing golf. We had announcement this week about relatively space. This is the company that wants to create a small launch vehicle about one thousand kilograms to Leo and they want to create these vehicles by three D printing them entirely, so they using additive manufacturing to print. Not only the engines, but the tanks in the aeroshell shell and everything and then assembling it by hand on that last leg. So they want to drastically reduce the amount of labor that goes into a vehicle. It's really interesting. I don't know how it's gonna work out yet. I have a lot of reservations about certain parts. But I like to see these companies taking a really unique tact in the little unique strategy in the industry because there's a lot of people just building small launch vehicle. There's not a lot of them doing it. With a unique flair that that means something it's not just unique to be unique. But it actually they have a strategy behind it. And I like that they've been making good progress in the last couple of years. They've got engines test-firing at Stennis they have a bunch of facilities down at NASA Stennis, and they have finally signed their first deal for a launch site. So they have signed a lease agreement with the US air force to lease launch complex sixteen out at Cape Canaveral air force station. Eric Berger, our technical reported that it was a a five year agreement where it is a multi user facility, which means somebody else could technically come and use the launch pad. And then if relativity meet certain milestones if they start launching regularly, then that would convert to. A twenty year exclusive use of the Pat, so they for all intents burgers, they've locked up this pad for twenty to twenty five years. And that's a lot of good stability for a company that is making good progress and needs to start lining up launches sooner than later and lining up a launch site start developing that launch site sooner than later. Now being on the east coast Cape Canaveral that gives you access to low inclination orbits to medium inclination orbits think anything from a GTO to the space station orbit. That's typically the rains that you're gonna get on the east coast, and there's certain restrictions on each based on vehicle performance and flight paths and all that. But in general, that's the range that you've got from the east coast. So there has been comments from the leaders of relativity that they do need a polar orbit launch site. So they need a launch site that can get them to sunset Groner's orbit polar orbit other things that are typically used for imaging satellites for DOD missions, the kind of stuff that they're gonna wanna fly pretty frequently. So they've said that they're searching for that still. And this is where I've been thinking a lot about launch sites because there's still a handful left in Cape Canaveral though, more and more are going. So we've got blue origin developing site there. We've got relativity developing a site there. We've got space x work. Into their obviously, you will as on two right now soon to be one. So there's a lot there already. There's a couple of more left to pick up. There's a couple of open spots out at Vandenberg still. So when they're talking about finding a polar spot, I'm I'm trying to think about what that what they're going to scoop up to do that..

"Shuttle launch experience with an astronaut say again getting insider information that not many people get to have that private experienced with an astronaut and hearing their personal stories. You know, it's it's a very neat experience. So the launch director towards that like an all day experience. Or is it a couple of hours? I believe it's about four hours. Okay. And then is that something do you do it like as a family, or is it like a group of are you kind of touring with the group that signed up for? You told with a group it's limited to about thirty five people, generally. So it's a smaller groups, they do get, you know, you get to ask your own questions. You know, really get time to, you know, have that small group experience so sound like a hundred people go on it. Okay. And then are there any I guess if I was going to kind cover the towards as of value package or something you recommend for a family. That's just going to be able to spend a little bit of time. They're like these are the must do attractions, or this is what you have to see if you've only got a short amount of time. Yeah. I mean, if you only get a short amount of time, it's hard to stay naturally. I'm a bit partial to pick a few things. But if I had to say, I would definitely recommend the bus tour. You get a comprehensive look at this. The place where you know, humans have left earth than the US space program. You see the launch badge SpaceX where they'll be launching. We see United launch alliance. You see the vehicle assembly building, which is a huge iconic building that everybody knows where you know. Nasa puts Ron rockets together. So that's not to be missed. And then, of course, space shuttle, Atlantis it's just such an amazing, inspirational attraction, even if you've seen other space shuttles and other places like LA or DC. You have to see space shuttle Atlantis every time. I see it. I tear up I get goosebumps. Just an inspirational displayed in such a way that no no other space shuttle is displayed an away only astronauts had seen her before she was at Kennedy. So it's it's my personal favorite as you can probably tell and it's it's just fantastic. Oh, yes. And I didn't even I thought I didn't even realize there was more than one launch pad. Yes there so many launch. They're quite a few get some that are no longer being used that were used for the Apollo program. And then some that were used for space shuttle now SpaceX is using and found actually on the air force side Cape Canaveral air force station on there's a lot rocket launch pads there as well. And then the other thing I'm sad that I missed out on. When I was a kid. I don't even know what they had space camp. But if they had it, and I missed it going to be very mad at my parents. I didn't get to go as a kid. But if if my kids wanted to go is it more or locals because it's close or is it some how does the whole program where. Well, yeah. I mean actually hear that from a lot of people. They are they wanted to go to camp and didn't get to go or they went to camp, and it really, you know, inspired them and as a child, so it's it's not necessarily just for local mean, it's most of the programs are three to five days. So you know, you would have to make some arrangements for mom or dad to probably stay along. And maybe have a little bit of beach vacation free time on their own. If it's during the summer spring break, but are camp KFC is just education focused learning, it's focused on stem, obviously. And it's you know, in such a way that only NASA can really do semina- learning experience. And now the new astronaut training experience will be part of that for our camp KFC as well. So they'll get to really get hands on. They'll get to see some of the exhibits and attractions individual complex. And then also get a chance to really do some hands on learning and astronaut training experience. If I drop off Roku who's eight is there like is there like framing for that age group and then training for teens or like different programs for different age groups. Yep. Yeah. Each program ages are group's together based on you know, what would be appropriate education levels. And so there's different lessons and activities that are all customized for that age group. So there's there could be engineering challenges. You know, you could be putting together, you know, a rocket or a habitat that could go to Mars. So it's it's a program that's definitely customized for the age group and education level. And then I just I have to drop them off, and I can spend the day at the beach, and then I just have to pick him up. Like six six eight hours later. Yeah. Basically, it's a full day. So, you know, I feel like that's a pretty good deal for parents. All right. And so if they wanted to sign up for space camp or see about a rocket launch or buy tickets is there a specific website. Or is it is it? The just the Kennedy Space Center ciders, there's different ones reach one. Yeah. At on our website, you can sign up for camp Cassie and it's Kennedy Space, Center dot com and dates are on our website pricing information, and and you know, the opportunity to to sign up for it. Then in there, you can call our reservations and speak to you a person if you have questions about it, and they'd be happy to answer them. Okay. And then I wanted to read we have on the Griswold radio Facebook page, we had a couple listeners right in with questions. And we'll do that in the next segment, but before we get there. I wanted to read someone wrote in not a question, but they wrote in just a comment, and it's an and she said. It has a recommendation for anyone who thinks of going. She says go with an exclamation point. We went for a day before February two thousand seventeen Disney cruise the day was bass or the day vastly exceeded our expectations rewrite shortly before the opening at nine and left after the last I am movie and the day was everything that they expected they stayed till everything was closed two kids. So almost all right. Mike is ages so eleven to nine they were totally engaged all day long. And they went to the last I max and only by that time has she kind of lost one of the kids interest. But the, but they've been there all day long as he says, they're not science nerds. The you know, everything was intriguing the entire day met all their expectations everything they saw they and they thought it was the they they're going to Disney a lot. And they said that it was a Disney like all of the experience. Everything was clean, the movies and exhibits were high quality. They had an excellent experience. Oh, yeah. And she goes on and on and on. So it's like a glowing endorsement so from someone when I was just asking for questions that she came back with us rave review. That's fantastic. Yeah. I mean, it's great to hear always. So glad to hear that those experiences exceeded expectations. And and that's what Kenny three center complex is all about we really want to inspire the next generation of space explorers and not just the young but the young at heart as well. And so, you know, there's no other place in the world that you can really see and feel space and interact with it and learn about it and know it and be inspired by it. And so we hope you know, that that one of the kids that's there and inspired by one of the attractions are artifacts that they see that they'll be an astronaut be an engineer be a launch director via scientists and maybe one day be the first person to step foot on Mars. Is there anything going? Tomorrow's whereas anything planned yet. There is a Bropher that's plans to go in a twenty twenty. And, you know, the the expectation to have humans on Mars. It's a little further out in the future. But it's definitely still a priority to get there one day. So all.

"AM six forty. More stimulating talk. And welcome back Linda Bolton how with us. We'll take calls with Linda next hour. But we continue with her incredible story of the secret, astronauts and L M K ultra go ahead. Linda, thank you, George. Well, you know secret space program secret, astronauts, we've been hearing those words for several years at conferences and in some of the journals. Well, what are the facts? It is true is the fact that the US air force secretly developed a spy program called manned orbiting or orbital laboratory. The acronym was MO L or mole that was first announced to the public on December tenth nineteen sixty three. When John herald the was sixteen years old. The mole defense contractor was Douglas aircraft company and the goal was to use secret astronauts in orbit to spy on the earth, but by nineteen sixty nine when John LeVine was twenty two years old unmanned reconnaissance satellites had proved that they could spy on our planet, more efficiently and cheaply. So the mole program was cancelled. But almost thirty years later in two thousand and five security agents at the Cape Canaveral air force station in Florida got into an old locked storage room. And they found two blue space suits made for the one said, but in the secret nineteen sixties MO L program, and it was labeled double oh. Eight with the name Lieutenant Colonel lawyer and the other spacesuit was labeled. Double o seven no kidding. Just like the JAMES BOND movies, but it didn't have a name. So mole was a secret space program with secret, astronauts, but they were not landing on the moon another space secrets since the nineteen seventies has been the National Reconnaissance office and its keyhole series of advanced digital imaging reconnaissance spacecraft known as keyhole, and they came in a series cage nine ten eleven twelve. The optics were built by Perkin Elmer in Waltham, Massachusetts. For those American keyhole spy-satellites one of the K H spy-satellite optical units. Ended up turned around to aim out toward outer space instead about the earth. And today, we call it the Hubble telescope. Oh, no kidding. And if the NRO's spycraft had.
