"How fast is it within minutes. Like instantaneous kind of test. how about that a pre-test telling you if it comes up positive you go get another test. Yes oh for sure if any ad home test basically positive then you go get the real test. Yeah okay but i mean i agree with you too to some extent that would be amazing like in a perfect world but also in a if that were the case we wouldn't be in the predicament. We're in having a rapid to other countries have done in other countries have done massive testing beyond anything we've done that and their and their numbers are much better right so i think that you know even before we have a test that we can keep enlarge stock in our own home. It's a function of. Can they use this in schools. Can they use this for public transit. You know think about the cases where people are indirect contact and in those cases having a rapid test is going to be a game changer. But for me sitting at home not going into work know. I don't. I don't need to use those resources. No but it certainly would have changed the way. This winter is turning out to be absolutely we had we had. This should have been one of the big big priorities months and months ago. Imagine if we had this six months ago and that's a lot of things we could have done differently rights and this is just one. That's in the news because the fda one for the home so yeah. This is just another failure. So it's exciting. I mean hopefully. It'll be one more tool that we have. That will hopefully help get the sunday a pandemic under control. Yeah especially for folks who aren't aren't frontline. Workers don't have pre existing conditions like there's going to be a slog. there's a. There's a time delay between when most people are going to be able to get the vaccine. So yeah but think about it though because. Generally i think people being very lax if anything the test will might motivate some people not to get together when they would have otherwise. Done it You know what. I mean pro and probably less likely to give somebody a false sense of security that they otherwise wouldn't have had. Gosh i hope so. I hope it's not seen as like a green light to just go. Do whatever the hell you want is that would be really right. That is always that the the the false sense of security always resume or else we've onto some full news items by you're going to start by telling us about all the wonderful things that the cbo telescope has done for us yes. The iconic air cbo observatory is no more after a series of events leading to. Its collapse early in this december or a good idea is to go over what it was. What it what it has done interesting facts about it. In some of amazing accomplishments of the cbo observatory also known as the national astronomy. And i fear center and aic Is in puerto rico. Puerto rico and it's owned by the national science foundation nsf. It was created the year that i was born over a half century ago but luckily i'm nowhere near collapsing yet. The business end of it air cbo refer to the era cbo observatory assist air. Cbo the business end of air sea but was a three hundred and five meter or thousand foot spherical reflector dish. This was created using a natural sinkhole. Actually it was a karst sinkhole which basically means most singles are karst sinkholes. That just means that. The underlying rocks are soluble. And there's fisher's allowing drainage often into caves and stuff and don't look into this because it's a rabbit hole. It's the fascinating thing that i spent time looking into the making up. The dish was almost thirty. Nine thousand one by two meter aluminum panels and they were all supported by crisscrossing. Steel cables and underneath that on the ground was vegetation that didn't mind being in the shade so much specifically planted that there or they just group you know you don't care about the shade that much guess you would naturally grow there anyway. So but above all that then of course was and hung on cables was a steerable receiver and radar transmitters. And that's about one fifty meters or five hundred feet above the dishwasher. It's really way up there. I was actually. I thought i knew something about air. Cba there was a lot of. It's made even more amazing discoveries than i realized. Did you know that astronomers used to think that pulsars could be created by white dwarfs. I did not think that white works ruin contention to explain them early. On in the late sixties that was until the air was spotted. A pulsar in the crab nebula rotating every thirty three milliseconds. That's important though. Because white dwarfs can't do that which means that the argument that pulsars were actually a neutron stars. Got a huge boost. And which of course we soon found out that pulsars were in fact rotating neutron stars. So i guess it has to do with the mass of the white dwarf and just can't couldn't rotate that much mass it's not dense enough to rotate that fast. I assume So that was interesting. Thank you air cbo. Did you know that. W-was observations of the planet mercury in the ninety s suggested that ice might be permanently shadow craters at the poles nasa nasr's messenger spacecraft later confirmed that and you might be thinking of our moon right now and if so brought to you. This discovery on mercury raised the possibility that such crater ice is on the moon. And as you lunar files already know it certainly does. It is there. It is confirmed that isis definitely there in permanently shadowed. Parts of many different types of craters. So thank you. Eric cbo for that as well. And did you know that the air cba observatory sent the first message meant for aliens in one thousand nine hundred. Know that right not surprised They sent it to globular star. Cluster m thirteen and nineteen seventy four. It is said to be the most powerful signal ever sent from earth and it wasn't really like oh. Let's try to talk to aliens. It was more of a techno demo of the observatory's new high power radio transmitter than than anything else but still that's really cool And thirteen contains three hundred thousand stars and is about twenty five thousand light years away. The message itself was sixteen hundred seventy nine bits of information and it was in binary code Trying to Give some information about The chemical the chemicals in our dna. It had a stick figure sketch of human. If you put the if you put the information into into certain arrangement You'd see the figure it had a layout of our solar system et cetera. So so yeah that's signal was sent seventy four which means that it has eighteen ten thousandths of the way there for because we're forty six years into the twenty five thousand year trip so a long way to go. But thank you for that air cbo. Did you know. I did not know this. That air cbo detected the first indirect evidence of gravitational waves nineteen seventy four. It's not the first. What's the indirect evidence because we would know we had nowhere near the technology needed to detect them directly back then but they found a pulsar orbiting another star and as the star and the dead star spiraled closer and closer to each other. The energy that was lost during their changing orbits matched. What would be expected if that loss were due to gravitational waves emanating away it really it matched up so that was a really really good argument for the existence of gravitational waves without having to detect without having to have the insane accuracy that that lie go has today. They pretty much show that yet. It looks pretty damn good that gravitational waves actually exist. And how about this. Did you know that. This discovery of indirect evidence won the nobel prize in nineteen ninety-three three in physics. Did not remember that either. So thank you for that. Air cbo and finally. Let's see. did you know that air sea will detected the first exoplanets. I think. I think.

"Our collective imagination. We have seen it portrayed in Hollywood blockbusters like E. T. contact and the arrival but popular culture is also rife with alien encounters filled with chaos fiery explosions and fleeing masses. As you F os descend on our planet Skies Darken with storm clouds and the music swells dramatically and yet we don't actually know how people might react but scientists have tried to guess. According to a steady presented at the American Association for the Advancement of Science, by Professor Michael Varna Varnhem humans would most likely be able to handle evidence of extraterrestrial intelligence as long as aliens don't plan to invade. Varna added of course, I would predict that if a hostile armada showed up near Jupiter, we wouldn't be happy barnum study tested human reactions to the potential of aliens by presenting them with news headlines Real and fake. One hundred ninety headlines spoke about microbial fossils found on. Mars another touched on the discovery of habitable Earth sized planets in naturally one was about the wow signal from one, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy, seven, the study evaluated the words subjects used to describe their emotions after reading the headlines they distinguish their feelings by using words like happy or nice. Negative words included worried or annoyed no matter the topic the reaction was always overwhelmingly positive. So while we can't for sure whether or not the wow signal was sent by intelligent life forms in space. We can say that humans on earth are open to the idea of breaching contact, and as we've learned, an open mind is an excellent place to start as for the wow signal the mysteries still open ended. And scientists are still working to find answers. The signal could be an integral piece to a much much larger puzzle. They could come together at any second on the thirty fifth anniversary of the WOW signals transmission national geographic, and the CBO observatory beamed to response in the direction of the signals origin toward the Sagittarius Constellation contained within the beam were over ten thousand twitter messages and celebrity videos including a message from comedian Stephen Colbert making the case for why humans shouldn't be eaten. Scientists tried their best to make the message able to be decoded by intelligent life a representative from National Geographic stated. Each message will have a repeating sequence hetero attached leading the recipient know that the messages are intentional and from another intelligent life form. Additionally, the transmitter used yields a signal roughly twenty times stronger than that of the most powerful commercial radio transmitter. In earthly existence, the signal was sent on August, Fifteenth Two thousand twelve as of this recording, no reply has been received. But that could be because it's expected to arrive in the Messier fifty five star grouping in the year. Nineteen, thousand, six, hundred, twenty, two, we'll just have to wait to find out.

The Discovery of Exoplanets

"To this day in history class where we uncover a a new layer of history every day. Today is January ninth twenty twenty. The day was January ninth nineteen ninety-two radio. Astronomers Earth Alexander Volks German and Dale Frail announced the discovery of two planets orbiting the pulsar P. S. R. B. Twelve fifty seven Plus twelve. It was the first confirmed discovery of EXO planets exoplanets our planets beyond our solar system people people have thought that there were planets around other stars for centuries but scientists did not have the tools to detect them and there was no way to know what extra solar systems systems looks like and whether there was life there astronomers in the nineteen. Th Century claimed that they've seen EXO planets but their observations were discredited is credited the first evidence of a possible exit planet orbiting a White Dwarf named Van Manen to was recorded in nineteen seventeen and in nineteen eighty eight scientists. I proposed the existence of the EXO planet gamma Ab but it was not confirmed to be in orbit around around the Star Gamma CPI until two thousand and two using the auto CBO observatory. Puerto Rico. Astronomers Volks Chin and frail searched for new pulsars and February of Nineteen Ninety voest discovered a pulsar in the constellation Virgo. That spun on this axis one hundred in sixty one times per second for rotation period of six point twenty two milliseconds. The pollstar was called. PS are twelve fifty seven plus twelve with ps are standing pulsating source of radio and the following numbers representing the pulsar's right ascension and degrees of declaration modern conventions prefix older pulsar names with the letter. B since before nineteen ninety-three pulsars were given names according to their positions the B nineteen fifty coordinate system. Now their given names based on their position in the J. Two thousand coordinate system but the pulsar had regularities. It's pulsating period. Vocation and frail discovered that there were at least two planets orbiting. Sr B twelve fifty seven plus twelve the the exoplanets were named PS are twelve fifty seven plus Twelve C and P. S. twelve fifty seven plus. Twelve D or poltergeist aced phobic tour respectively. Both are around four times as massive as earth. One has an orbital period of sixty six point five days days and the other ninety eight point two days because the exoplanets are constantly hit with radiation from the pulsar there orbiting they are rocky and cannot support. Port organic life on January Ninth Nineteen ninety-two Frail and bolster published a paper in the Journal. Nature announcing their discovery of the two exoplanets planet's two years later boasted and his colleague macy's Edge Kotecki discovered a third planet in this system it is less massive than earth and has an orbital orbital period of twenty five point three days the planet likely formed from matter ejected into space during the Supernova explosion that created the pulsar in one thousand nine hundred five. Michelle your and Dea Kahlo discovered the first known exoplanet orbiting star similar to the sign since nineteen eighteen ninety two thousands of EXO planets have been discovered most of them confirmed by NAFTA's Kepler space telescope using the transit method. The transit method that detects exoplanets by measuring the dimming of a star as an orbiting body passes between it and earth if the dimming happens at regular intervals in last a set amount of time. Then it's likely that a planet orbiting the star the intensity of dimming helps scientists determine the size ratio between the Star and the planet exoplanets have also been discovered using other indirect methods like the radial velocity method.

"This was the air CBO observatory in Puerto Rico and originally conceived back in the late nineteen fifties. This observatory had a large scale, I honest Feerick radar probe for many decades. It would be the home of the world's largest radar dish until China completed. The fast dish telescope in two thousand sixteen so this observatory in Puerto Rico could take measurements of the ionosphere and its interactions with electromagnetic fluctuations such as those from communication signals, or you know, maybe an EMP burst. It was originally included as part of the overall defender program out of Arba that was the largest project in Arpaio the ballistic missile defense program. The observatory have been used for numerous scientific projects still has still. It is. In fact, it e- even helped NASA pick the lunar landing sites for the Apollo missions. It's part of the national astronomy. And I honest fear center, which is operated by a cooperative agreement between the universities space research association, the university Dodd metropolitan a- and SRI international also in nineteen sixty three the villa project. Again, the villa project was the second largest project out of our pup behind defender. This was the one that was meant to detect nuclear detonations through various sensors this project advanced bit in nineteen sixty three a pair of satellites were launched from the United States just a few days after a new limited nuclear-test-ban treaty was signed between the US the UK and the Soviet Union. He satellites had special LA sensors aboard though sensors would be on the lookout for optical and electromagnetic. Signatures that would indicate a nuclear explosion in the atmosphere. So in other words, this is part of the equipment. The US would depend upon to make sure everyone was playing by the established rules of the band treaty. They would look for any evidence that someone was actually conducting tests when they weren't supposed to be the villa and defender projects both would continue to develop technologies that supported their respective project goals. So this was not the end of either project. I've got more to say, but let's take a quick break to thank our sponsors. To all my business owners out there. I know that marketing your business can be scary..
