Everything I've dreamt about since I was a kid came through and more today and And He was supposed well. He beat Jeff Bastos blue origin launched by more than a week and reporting on this in The Washington Post is Christian Davenport, who spoke with Cuomo's Taylor van size so near enough to two decades of work went into this trip and Virgin Galactic as we've talked about before seen some tragedy along the road. Did everything go according to plan over the weekend. Yeah, it seemed to go flawlessly. And you know, Richard Branson finally fulfilled his dream of going to the edge of space. He did it with a full cabin. There were three other crew mates with him all Virgin galactic employees who were flying along on a test flight to sort of get a sense of what the experience would be for paying customers. You know, ultimately later this year early next, they want to open up their space tourism business, and there were two pilots on board as well. So a total of six people Made it to space. And this was, you know, a big deal for the company and for Richard Branson himself who founded Virgin Galactic Way back in 2000 and four hoping initially to start flying people by 2000 and seven. Obviously, that didn't happen. It took a lot longer than they anticipated. As you mentioned they did have some setbacks. Along the way. There was a fatal accident in 2014 where the space plane came apart mid flight and it killed one of the pilots and injured the other pilot who had the parachute down. But they you know, um, went back. Made some modifications to the spacecraft stayed at it. And here we are. Now they're on the cusp of flying pain customers and you got to go to this launch in New Mexico at Spaceport America. Tell me a little bit about this place because once paying passengers are accepted by Virgin Galactic, I understand there's a pretty significant infrastructure built up around space. Tourism. Yeah, but Virgin Galactic facility in New Mexico. It's outside of less crucial New Mexico. Um In the in the desert there and these beautiful mountains surrounded and spaceport America itself as this taxpayer funded facility that cost $220 million, and it really does sort of fit into the landscape of New Mexico there and this sort of modern Miracle almost kind of looks like a mirage when you get out there, and that's where Virgin Galactic will do its astronaut training. Getting the pan customers ready to fly where they keep of the spacecraft. And remember this is not a rocket that launches vertically. That's what blue origin will use for the capsule on top. This is a space plane. That is tethered to the belly of a mothership twin fuselage airplane that brings it up to about 45,000 ft or so and then releases the space plane and the pilot. It's the engines and turned and they go as fast as Mach three, going almost straight up, and then they come back down and land that Spaceport America and they're in space for about 3 to 4 minutes, and they get some weightlessness around them. Certainly an exciting time. I think to be covering the space industry as if it's not an interesting topic as it is Christian Davenport with US on common news, who covers the space industry for the Washington Post, and Christian will keep an eye out for your coverage of the blue origin launch in about eight days or so. Maybe I'll talk to you next week. I hope so. Christian Davenport on common he was with us. And that's cool. Most Taylor van sites bringing us close to 5 40.

Seattle used the number 12 slot on a high school catcher outfielder Harry Forward from Cobb, Georgia. He's no relation to the Georgia peach, Ty Cobb. But Mr Ford is versatile. First position was third base and outfield and I moved over to catch her. Uh, A little later and so I've always kept playing. I didn't get some players much outfield or infield and north calves just because you know, like I was kind of needed a catcher. And so that was my main thing. The EMS have taken a lot of high school players in this draft. Nine more picks today. 17 year old Florida Academy shortstop Edwin Arroyo Jr is considered one of the bright prospects in the Puerto Rico League.

"And how cold is too cold for a workout. Love that story in about 20 minutes. Well, most people around the world are happy to see 2020 gone, but for space enthusiasts Last year was actually quite a good one, providing bits of promising news amid the bleak headlines of disease, economic hardship and protests. It's a story by Christian Davenport at The Washington Post Christian What can we expect from NASA? Well, they're going to keep launching astronauts. They had a test flight in May of 2020 and then an operational one with a full contingent. Of four astronauts, three from NASA one from Japan, and they're just going to continue that pace. I mean, a lot of people forget that NASA up until just recently, just up until the basic flight did not have the ability to fly astronauts. That's because the space shuttle was retired in 2011. Hey, Sex is restoring that capability for NASA, and they've got two more flights with astronauts to the international space station coming up in 2021. So that's gonna be a big thing for them are their plans to get regular people aboard. Space X at some point, Cristian Yeah, And that's actually could come up in the second half toward the end of 2021 used to be the policy from NASA that private citizens weren't allowed to fly up to the international space station. From American soil. They devise that, and now there's a company called Axiom Space that is on one hand working to build its own commercial space station. Think about sort of private hotel. And platform in space, but also looking flights on space. Texas crude dragon for wealthy individuals, we're talking, you know, you got to spend 10 days on the space station crossed about $50 million for the right to be able to do that, though. You know, you've got to have a lot of money to be able to do this, but actually, um, will train you Secure the transportation with Space X and in this case will have sort of a guy, Um Michael Lopez, a luxury a former NASA astronaut who now works or actually in space, So that's another thing we could see coming in 2021, in addition to the sub orbital space tourism That companies like Virgin Galactic, founded by Richard Branson and Blue Origin founded by Jeff Hazel's want to do and they want to start taking people on trips just to the edge of space and back. What is the Starship Spacecraft? Well, that is Elon musk dream in a lot of ways, it's his next generation space craft. That would be when this thing gets going massive and be able to take about 100. People are so, um, to the moon or tomorrow. So now it's Falcon nine Rocket and its Dragon spacecraft. Basics, uses those and take astronauts and cargo and supplies to the international space station. That is an earth orbit. That's about 250 miles away. They're now working on space X is a much bigger vehicle starship that would be fully reusable to go to the moon and on to Mars. They're working on developing that right now. At their launch site and broke a chica Texas, outside of Brownsville, the very southernmost tip of Texas and they're doing demonstration flight. Um all of, you know, working right up to the new year, and that will be a big thing for 2021. Ellen hopes of that vehicle will finally make orbit for the first time next year. We're speaking with Christian Davenport at The Washington Post. His pieces called 2021 could be a huge year for space. Here's what's to come from NASA, Elon Musk, Richard Branson and Jeff Bezos.

Police have removed the group of homeless people and advocates who were squatting at a five motel. No arrest of the Travelodge. But five police say that while the group's ever to help the homeless was noble, they victimized a local business. 2020 was pretty rotten on Earth. It was actually quite good in space. Come on, Taylor Vance, I says more is Christian Davenport reports in the Washington Post Space X launched astronauts. A new Mars rover was launched. Asteroid samples were taken from a couple 100 million miles away, and China even sent an unmanned mission to the moon and back. So what's in store for 2021? For that? We're joined on the common news line again by Christian. Is there a single event or innovation? You're most looking forward to covering in 2021 0. Gosh, there are so many. I mean, staying on that theme of human space flight. It could be a big year not just having space X continue. Fly NASA's astronauts to the international space station. We might see Boeing on board to do that on we could see Also, tourists paying customers fly with space sex to go to the International Space Station. And then, of course, there's Virgin Galactic.

Well blowing has had a few hurdles over the past couple of years in space flight among them what's planned for them in 2021. Can they achieve it? Well, you're right. I mean, they have had obviously the setback with the 7 37 Max issue. But also their Starliner spacecraft, which is built for NASA to fly astronauts to the space station had problems at the end of last year, right around this time when it reached space and then immediately had problems with the software. Spent basically all of this year trying to fix that are going to do another test mission without astronauts on board at the end of March. And then if that goes well, which it really has to. For them, they would fly their first mission with crew on board toward the end of this year. They've also got their massive space launch system rocket. It's been under developed for many, many years. That's also at a critical juncture. It has never flown despite you cost overruns and years of delays, and they've got to get that thing flying as well, And they hope to do that, by the end of 2021 President Trump wants astronauts on the moon by 2024. But he's leaving the White House in January. What's your expectation for that effort next year when the Biden administration starts up? I think by the administration is going to keep the moon program the Artemus program of Congress. Hasn't fully funded NASA's requests for the human landing system. NASA was asking for more than $3 billion for that in next year's budget. They got less than a third of that, so it doesn't just it doesn't quite have the funding that it needs to make the 2024 deadline. But it does have you know some funding, and I think that the by the administration will Committed to landing astronauts on the moon. Probably closer to around the 2028 timeline.

But there is no other companies like take called Astra Biotic, for example, that's working with NASA not to fly astronauts to the moon, but to fly, um science and cargo missions to the lunar surface. They hope to do that, Um, by next year, So, yes, you've got all this sort of growing commercial space industry with a lot more players in it. Some will be successful, but many will fail.

"Station Co. Moh news 1000 FM 97 7 Jeff Coachella at the editor's desk I'm Taylor Vance. I sit among the headlines were following this afternoon the U. S accounts for 18% of the world's death count as we crossed 285,000 Americans killed by covert 19. And 15 Million people infected the case against former national security adviser Michael Flynn being dismissed because of the pardon from President Trump. But the judge that was in charge of that case, District Judge Emmet Sullivan explained. The act of clemency doesn't mean Flynn did not lie about his conversations with the Russian government to the FBI. It takes time and money to bring high speed Internet to rural parts of America or anywhere in the world and to help at least in America. The Federal Communications Commission awarded more than $9 billion for companies to provide reliable broadband service. But as Christian Davenport reports in the Washington Post, not all of that money is going towards putting cables underground. A big chunk of it is going to space and Christian joins me on the coma News like Good afternoon. Your name. As you report Elon Musk Space X Company gets almost $900 million from this fund. What's gonna pay for it? So, as you mentioned, Space X is putting up a constellation of satellites into low earth orbit that would beam Internet signal down to ground stations, people's homes or businesses there well underway here. They've got nearly 1000 satellites already in space and have approval to put up about 12,000 satellites Total. That's an enormous cost not just to build all those satellites but tow launch them into space. So this really will help Space X move ahead with that enormously expensive program. It's a It's a novel idea. Appealing for sure. But is it gonna work hasn't been working Well, they have a beta test. They call better than nothing in the Northern U. S. And in southern Canada, some emergency responders in Washington state have actually used it. So far, they've reported that has been working well. But space excess that the more satellites they launched into orbit and the better. Their technology becomes the lower the latents here, the lower that the faster the speed will be of their service, so it's only going to get better. Space X says the more time goes on, and they're hoping for a dramatic improvement even by the middle of next year. My mother in law lived about 35 minutes from downtown Seattle until she moved last month. But even that close to this big tech city she had trouble getting reliable, high speed Internet from Comcast. Are we really anybody else? How big of a problem is access across this nation? Well, it's a huge access across the nation and across the world where there are some estimated four billion people. Who are not connected, and we've seen particularly the United States. How reliant we all are on the Internet during this pandemic, right Because people have been working from home kids, my kids, they're doing remote learning from home. So when my wife and I are using the Internet and our three kids are using the Internet that puts quite a strain on it. So we've seen this increased demand, even in places where there is good access. Um And that's on Lee. More true when you get out into remote areas that have no service or underserved by broadband. So is he say, Space X is gonna have 12,000 satellites above us before too long are their competitors or are they alone in this endeavor? No, there are competitors. But space X is pretty far ahead. And this infusion of public money from the federal government is going to help them. But Amazon, for example, wants to do this with it. They call it project the Keiper project. They have approval for a few 1000 satellites as well. There's a company called One Web, which actually went into bankruptcy into chapter 11 and has since emerged. Also wants to do this, and there have been companies in the past. Like Teledesic, for example, in the radium that wanted to do this years ago, but ended up failing and going bankrupt Just because the barrier to entry is so high, But space X thinks because you know it has a rocket company and it could launch its own satellites. They'll be an incredible cost savings there. And, of course, you know, As we said earlier, this investment from the federal government is only gonna help them. I mean early on you on must, the founder of Space X said he wasn't entirely sure if this was going to be successful, you know, but this is a big boost toward that end goal.

Blue Origin chalks up 13th successful test flight

"What an exciting morning it was for the blue origin rocket scientists in Kent as they watched their 13th successful launch Take place. It happened at a site in Texas. But as Christian Davenport reports in the Washington Post The 20 year old company. Blue Origin still hasn't reached orbit or put a human in space and Christian joins us on the coma News line. What was the purpose of today's launch? Yeah, thanks for having me. So the purpose of today's launch was to launch their new shepherd vehicle. It was a test launch. It goes not to orbit as you mentioned, but it goes sub orbital. It goes straight up and straight down. Ultimately, this is a vehicle that's going to fly paying customers to space. We would have thought that would have happened by now. But they're event, some delays and setbacks and and, of course, the Corona virus. Pandemic. But while it didn't have any people on board, it did have some payloads, including some research that was placed outside of the booster that could be used to help the lunar lander that blue origin is developing for NASA in its quest to get back to the moon that would help it land. Very precisely on the moon on so that experiment was on board. The new Shepherd for their Askew mentioned there's 13th successful launch this morning. Well, delays and pandemics aside as you write, Lord and kind of has a motto of keeping a slow pace. Why, though they lost a contract with the Pentagon not too long ago? Well, you're right. I mean, the motto is Jeff Bezos has said that they wanted to go step by step ferociously. But there's been some criticism of the company that they've been moving too slowly at a time. When you see companies like Space six, you know, which got the orbit relatively quickly. They're flying humans. They of their first Ah, flight of NASA astronaut in May and brought them back safely a couple months later. That you know what is taking blurred and so long and they hadn't flown their new Shepherd's vehicle since December, So there was sort of a 10 month gap there, But I will tell you and I've been down to Cape Canaveral in Florida. You drive by the manufacturing facility that blue origin is building there, and it's matches. It is absolutely mind blowing. And it shows you, Jeff says. This is the most important work he's doing is working space. You think this is going to be a big part of his legacy is dedicated Tio spending a billion dollars a year of his own money into it until while they're moving slowly and deliberately. You can't bet against them. And next year could be a big year and it feels like we say that a lot In states like, but we're looking ahead at flying people for the first time in New Shepherd, they said. Today they were maybe a couple of flights away from doing that, And then they also hope to launch their new Glenn vehicle. That's the Big rocket that would eventually go to orbit.

But the grounding and the Koven 19 pandemic has had a significant effect on the on the company leading to significant layoffs and substantial losses on Wall Street. Christian Davenport has taken a closer look at Boeing's future for the Washington Post. And you spoke about it with Cuomo's Taylor and sites As you report Boeing struggles right now go beyond just commercial aviation and the max what other problems need solving. That's right, because everyone's been so focused on the 7 37 max and the relationship with the FAA, and of course, it's too awful terrible crashes that resulted in the deaths of 346 people. But we wanted to look at you. No more systematic, more company wise. The companies had problems over several program to go right to the heart of what Boeing does. And that's flying. So it's had problems with its Starliner spacecraft, which is developing for NASA that fly NASA astronauts to the international space station. It's had troubles with the space Launch system Rocket, which would be the most powerful rocket ever built an even stronger than the root moon rocket, the Saturn five during used during the Apollo era. Yet that's never flown after all these many years and we've looked at the tanker program for the Pentagon. This is the plane that would be able to re fuel military jets in the air. Every single one of those have had all sorts of problems. Yes, the company says every single one of those they're making progress, and they're trying to regain their footing and to regain the confidence of the public. Well, let's touch on confidence there for a moment, because for those of us in the Northwest that maybe have a Boeing employees in the family or or a pilot in the family were very familiar with the term scare bus when you talk about confidence with the rival Airbus What's Boeing doing to restore confidence, right? Well, when it comes to the max, I mean, they have done first of all they're saying for those employees there, even though they're reopening the lines. They're taking great care to ensure that you know, it's done in the safe and the deliberate way we talk to Some members of the union you know who agreed. For the most part, the company had been a good actor. There's some issues that have come up from time to time not having enough personal protective equipment, for example, not having enough spacing on the line that the most part, they felt confident that inside of going outside of Boeing, they've released a confidence in air travel program where there You know, trying to tell the flying public Look, we used these HEPA filters take out you know more than 99% of all particulars. The airflow is recycled every 2 to 3 minutes. The air flow inside the cabin of the airplane goes from the ceiling to the floor. So you're less likely that to pass germs, you know, and I think they were confident. You know, some weeks ago. As heir travel. You know you were seeing across the country and really across the world start to take back up. But now, Taylor, we've seen that sort of huge spike across the country in certain hot spot areas of the Corona virus, you know, roaring back then. Clearly this is not over and clearly that's gonna be a long term impact. For the airline industry in general and bowing in particular Christian Davenport with us on coma news.

President Trump wants to make his Mark in space, but according to a report from a government watchdog the cost of developing the rocket put Americans back in space, maybe higher than anticipated Washington. Post-space industry. Reporter, Christian Davenport is following it all and spoke with komo's Taylor van Cise just how expensive is it going to be to finish developing the new S L S or space launch system? Well, initially what the government accountability office said that had been reporting was through the first launch of the rocket, it would be about a billion dollars over budget. But according to the GAO, they looked at this, and actually they calculated the cost to be almost two billion dollars over budget. But again that only accounts for the cost that goes through the first launch and not the entire program. So I guess the short answer is we don't exactly know other than to say it's going to be quite a bit now NASA came back this morning and made it very clear that two things one that this is a rocket. The even bigger and would be more capable of the Saturn five rocket from the Apollo era and they claim that they have been very transparent and what they're trying to build here the very. Sophisticated and difficult rocket, but, you know how much it ultimately will cost, I think, remains.

"Reporting on where the White House hopes find the money and the logistics is Washington space industry were reporter Christian Davenport spoke with komo's Taylor van Cise this year, you know, better than most marks fifty years since the first moon landing and the Apollo program cost a couple of dozen billion dollars in nineteen sixties money. Is there a ballpark cost for a moon mission in two thousand twenty four? Well, we haven't heard the entire costs for it. And they're going after fairly substantial Arcus architecture to do it. This isn't like Apollo where they want to send astronauts right to the surface to stay for a day or two and then come back. They're talking about, you know, a bigger system of putting an orbiting outpost called the gateway in the vicinity of the moon. That's gonna take a lot more time in a lot more resources. But what we do know is that since vice president move the timeline of that up dramatically from having humans land in twenty twenty eight to now twenty. Twenty four one of the big questions has been what is it going to cost and we got a glimpse of that yesterday when the White House put in a special budget amendment to the congress asking for an additional one point six billion for next year. But what will cost in the future? We don't know yet. And you write that one point six billion is gonna come out of Pell grant money surplus Pell grant money meant to help college students, though is there enough extra to make a dent in a moon mission budget. Well, you know, a lot of people will say one point six billion is not nearly enough for what you need. But what the national Minister Jim Breitenstein said yesterday was, you know, hey, look, this is a good start. This will get us going on this gets us out of the gates too. You know, what we need to do? And they need money for their big rocket known at the space launch system the Orion spacecraft. They need money to start the development of lunar Lander that would get about a billion dollars in Washington, this Washington DC their political questions, and if they came they were I think there was some concern in the White House if they came to. Congress asking for billions upon billions of dollars. They would have been laughed off the hill. And so they had to find something that gets them going. But on the other hand is also feasible which is always the balancing act here in Washington. The US still working to get astronauts to the international space station without the help of Russia. Does a moon mission help for her to think? You know, at this point they're separate efforts. But it's interesting to think here we are talking about sending humans to the surface of the moon, and we do not today have the capability of sending astronauts, anywhere, frankly and NASA has not had the ability to fly anyone to space since the spatial retired in two thousand eleven now. Boeing and SpaceX are the two companies under contract from NASA to build spacecraft capable of flying. Nasa, astronauts to the international space station, and it looks like you know, those first flights. I think are still scheduled for late this year. But it looks like that may happen sometime. Next year would be surprised if NASA farmed out the the land or effort to blue origin or SpaceX to land in the sea of tranquility or wherever else they choose on the moon. Well, one of the things that NASA has been very clear about from the beginning. It's on this sort of crash program to get to the moon to do it within five years that they're going to need everyone. They're going to need their international partners. They're going to need commercial industry really to step up. And you know, I think it was. Interesting that last week a week before the White House comes out with its supplemental. Request. You had Jeff Bezos here in DC. He's the founder of blue origin. And the owner I should note of the Washington Post where I work and they made their pitch to build a lunar Lander that they call blue moon, but they're just one of many companies Boeing Lockheed Martin the Sierra Nevada corporation that want to have, you know, some part in building this outpost known as the as the gateway Christian Devonport with as he covers the space industry for the Washington.

And I've heard several people stated it's the biggest thing that's happened to American space travel in forty years. I'd like to hear that explained. That's an interesting assertion that certainly a wonderful thing whenever we can successfully. A leap forward technologically. Speaking Christian Davenport covers space in the space industry for the Washington Post. In fact, he's written a book on the subject the space. Parents Ilan must Jeff Bezos in the quest to colonize, the cosmos, Christian Devonport joins us now Christian. How are you? I'm great. Thanks. Thanks for having me. Oh, it's our pleasure. Thanks. So why is this successful SpaceX launch and docking such big deal? Well, because it's the first time that SpaceX has flown their spacecraft designed for humans, you know, for all the attention all the hype that SpaceX and Eli gets in space people tend to forget that they've actually never flown a human being before flown satellite. So this was a test flight of the spacecraft that will eventually fly NASA, astronauts to the international space station, and while there were no humans on board for this light. You know, they had a mannequin decked out in their space suits named Ripley after the character an alien. Play. And now that you know with the successful launch it successfully docked with the international space station, which is sort of a big deal and that happened yesterday morning now they're looking ahead to later this year actually fly people on the spacecraft to the international later this year. Okay. I didn't realize that soon. I'm guessing they had sensors and stuff on board because you know, it's a dummy. Right. So like if they forgot to have accident or. That's got to be seven hundred and fifty degrees below zero. You probably know that to have oxygen. That's not gonna happen. No. You gotta test. Yeah. I mean that they did have the sensors to check the climate and just sort of you know, what it was like inside the cabin there. And also, what is it like for the human flying? You know, what are the forces? What is the acceleration? What are the impacts on the body? So that's why they they did that. And there were some pretty cool video of the inside of the cabin. And it'll be you know, when there are people for real. I mean, that's you know, as I said earlier coming up possibly later this year, obviously because the dummy could be fined at the end, but modern four hundred degrees below zero oxygen that wouldn't meeting. So later this year, they're going to have actual people going. What is how much of this is Alonzo own money in does the government kicking in a bunch of it or how does that work? Yeah. So the way this works is this has been a long term program that's been going on for many many years to space shuttle retired in twenty eleven right and people forget that today. Nasa. The United States of America does not have the ability to fly human beings to space and hasn't since the space shuttle retired like eight years ago. Since then the Russians are the only way we have to send our astronauts to space with Pam about eighty million dollars a seat to send our ad international space station, and it's been going on that way. Since two thousand eleven and the Russians have increasingly been charging, more and more and more. So NASA plan was, you know, okay. We want to focus on deep space. You know, the international space station. It's it's two hundred fifty miles up. It's not that far away. It's like the distance between New York City in Washington DC. They decided we'll contract that out to the private sector. So they worded contracts in twenty fourteen to Boeing and SpaceX to develop space craft capable of taking astronauts and both companies are hoping to fly people for the first time this year. And that's what SpaceX, you know. They had their first test flight without humans bowling helps hopes to do it later this spring as well. And then we'll see if they're able to have those first human flights later this year. So are the humans going to be government? I mean, like military officers, astronauts employees of NASA are they going to be plucked from the tesla. Employees. Right, right. So no these are for NASA astronaut so that they're the ones who will go up on the first test flights. They'll be to test pilots. You know, just go up to sort of experience. It see how it goes. And then they'll do more operational missions with NASA, astronauts, and, you know, astronauts from from Russia and other countries that we participate with now there is an interesting thing for both Boeing and SpaceX and that for NASA, they only requirement was you have to have four seats. You have to be able to take four government, astronauts, but both vehicles are capable of taking up as many as seven people. So they have talked about the possibility. That's what they say about my car to Christian, but it'd be incredibly uncomfortable. Right. Right. Right. Yeah. So that's at least one of the, you know, there are a lot of questions about how that would would work. But there have been the Russians have taken up, you know, private citizens before really Pugh billionaires have gone up and paid something like twenty million dollars a seat on the Russian rocket. Christian Davenport covers space in the space industry for the Washington Post. So a little later this year with real human beings. And then have you heard recently, a good responsible Mars timeline? Well, you know, here's the thing about when you talk about deep space. It changes almost every administration, you know, under George W Bush. We were going back to the moon. Then Obama comes around. He says oh the moon. We've been there done that we need to go to Mars now under the Trump administration. They're talking about going to the moon again, and using that as a stepping stone to get to Mars, I think in terms of the moon, which is a much more reasonable goal. I mean, we've already been there, you know, they're looking at human beings there. I think within a decade establishing a permanent presence on or near the moon in the vicinity of the moon. And then using that as a stepping stone to get to to Mars. I mean, one of the interesting things about the moon is that. At the polls, there's ice there. I mean, we know that too big scientific discovery ice and water important for drinking. But also for the elements that comprise that hydrogen and oxygen actually can be used as rocket fuel. So there is a lot of talk at NASA and in the private industry that's going to the moon and mining that that water ice and using it as rocket fuel and propellant to go deeper into space Millette would be exciting Christian Davenport space industry reporter for the Washington Post, a good to talk to you. Thanks so much for your time here. Thanks for having me well done. Thanks timelines. A little slower than I was hoping for we even get to the moon. And then you got your moon mining permanent colony building in the rest of big brother moon is what we're going to be survivor moon. Addition. That'd be cool though. Imagine the video base the video quality. We'd have now, you know. It's funny. You should mention that there's a video attached to Christians article about this in the Washington Post that I was watching as he was talking. We'll have it linked at Armstrong and Getty dot com. But. Yea ee lawn is obviously the guy to do this because the quality of the video they have cameras on each part of the rocket pointing in both directions. And also every stage of the thing every blastoff every separation. It's all in like, high daft great. That'll be fun to follow it on Godwin still around. I just so I I had the sickening thought. And I I keep wanting to not say it, but I've got to let it outta me. So they sent it off with a dummy. Right. And the dummies fine great. But this is blasting somebody on a rocket. And I just kept thinking of when when a guy's gonna kick a field goal at the end of an NFL game. And they call it idiot annoying. Timeout, just as the guys about to snap the ball. And the kicker you know, if he makes that non counting field goal. You know, he's gonna miss it. The second time I just keep getting the feeling I just, but that's well, though, understand how dangerous it is. But that's okay.

I suppose so it's it's it's interesting though.

We'll hitch a ride now and again as opposed to us just spending zillions of dollars on sending guys up and down. It's a win win. It's good. So far. So far. Mars, Jack, the red planet various.

"Grew emotionally exhausted. Because. Super stressful. But it worked he's talking about dating amber beard emotionally exhausted little stressful. But it worked Zealand mosque African American who boy we're going to have to go to a meeting. Who sent a rocket into space, and I've heard several people stayed. It's the biggest thing that's happened to American space travel in forty years. I'd like to hear that explained. That's an interesting assertion that certainly a wonderful thing whenever we can successfully leap forward technologically. Speaking Christian Davenport covers space in the space industry for the Washington Post. In fact, he's written a book on the subject the space. Parents Elon Musk Jeff Bezos in the quest to colonize, the cosmos, Christian Devonport joins us now Christine. How are you? I'm great. Thanks. Thanks for having me. Well, it's our pleasure. Thanks. So why is this successful SpaceX launch and docking such big deal? Well, because it's the first time that SpaceX has flown their spacecraft designed for humans for all the attention all the hype that SpaceX and Ilan gets in space people tend to forget that. They've actually never flown a human being before they have flown, you satellite. So this was a test flight of. The spacecraft that will eventually fly NASA, astronauts to the international space station, and while there were no humans on board for this late. You know, they had a mannequin decked out in their spacesuit named Ripley after the character an alien Weaver played. And now that you know with a successful launch it successfully docked with the international space station, which is sort of a big deal and that happened yesterday morning now they're looking ahead to later this year to actually fly people on the spacecraft to the international later this year. Okay. I didn't realize is that soon I'm guessing they had sensors and stuff on board because you know, it's a dummy. Right. So like if they forgot to have oxygen or got to be seven hundred and fifty degrees below zero you probably know that to have oxygen. That's not gonna happen. No. You gotta test. Yeah. I mean that they did have the sensors to check the climate and just sort of you know, what it was like inside the cabin there. And also, you know, what is it like for the human flying? You know, what are the G forces? What is the acceleration? What are the impacts on the body? So that's why they they did that. And there were some pretty cool video of the inside of the cabin. And it'll be you know, when there are people for real. I mean, that's you know, as I said earlier coming up possibly later this year. Obviously because the dummy could be fined at the end, but modern four hundred degrees below zero no oxygen that wouldn't be. So later this year, they're going to have actual people going. What is how much of this is Alonzo own money in does the government kicking in a bunch of it or how does that work? Yeah. So the way this works is this has been a long term program. It's been going on for many many years to space shuttle retired in twenty eleven right and people forget that today. Nasa. The United States of America does not have the ability to fly human beings to space and hasn't since the space shuttle retired like eight years ago since then the Russians are the only way we have to send our astronauts to space with Pam about eighty million dollars a seat to send our international space station, and it's been going on that way since two thousand eleven and the Russians have increasingly been charging, more and more and more. So Nasr's plan. Was you know, okay. We wanna focus on deep space. You know, the international space station. It's it's two hundred fifty miles up. It's not. That far away. It's like the distance between New York City in Washington DC, they decided we'll contract that out to the private sector. So they were two contracts in two thousand fourteen to Boeing and SpaceX to develop space craft capable of taking astronauts and both companies are hoping to fly people for the first time this year. And that's what SpaceX, you know. They had their first test flight without humans bowling helps hopes to do it later this spring as well. And then we'll see if they're able to have this first human flights later this year. So are the humans going to be government? I mean, like military officers, astronauts employees of NASA are they going to be plucked from the tesla, semblance employees. Right. Right. So no these are for NASA astronaut so that they are the ones who will go up on the first test flights. They'll be you know, sort to test pilots, you know, just go up to sort of experience. It see how it goes. And then they'll do more operational missions with NASA, astronauts, and you know, astronauts from. Come from Russia and other countries that we participate with now there is an interesting thing for both Boeing and SpaceX and that for NASA. They only the requirement was you have to have four seats. You have to be able to take four government, astronauts, but both vehicles are capable of taking up as many as seven people. So they have talked about the possibility. That's what they say about my car to Christian, but it'd be incredibly uncomfortable. Right. Right. Right. Yeah. So that's at least one of the, you know, there are a lot of questions about how that would would work, you know. But there have been the Russians have taken up private citizens before really Pugh billionaires have gone up and paid something like twenty million dollars a seat on the Russian rocket. Christian Devonport covers space in the space industry for the Washington Post. So a little later this year with real human beings. And then have you heard recently Amar's, a good responsible Mars timeline? Well, you know, here's the thing about when you talk about deep space changes almost every administration, you know, under George W Bush. We were going back to the moon and Obama comes around and he says oh the moon. We've been there done that we need to go to Mars now under the Trump administration. They're talking about going to the moon again, and using that steppingstone to get to Mars, you know, I think in terms of the moon, which is a much more reasonable goal. I mean, we've already been there, you know, they're looking at human beings there. I think within a decade establishing a permanent presence on or near the moon in the vicinity of the moon. And then using that as a stepping stone to get to to Mars. I mean, what are the interesting things about the moon is that? At the polls, there's ice there. I mean, we know that too big scientific discovery ice and water important for drinking. But also for the elements that comprise hydrogen and oxygen actually can be used as rocket fuel. So there is a lot of talk at NASA and in the private industry that's going to the moon and mining that that water ice and using it as rocket fuel and propellant to go deeper into space that would be exciting Christian Davenport space industry reporter for the Washington Post, a good to talk to you. Thanks so much for your time here. Thanks for having me well done. Thanks timelines little slower than I was hoping before we even get to the moon. And then you get your moon mining and your permanent colony building in rest of big brother moon is what we're going to be survivor moon edition. That'd be cool though. Imagine the video base the video quality. We'd have now, you know. It's funny. You should mention that there's a video attached to Christians article about this in the Washington Post that I was watching as he was talking. We'll have it linked at Armstrong and Getty dot com. But. Yea ee Laha is obviously the guy to do this because the quality the video they have cameras on each part of the rocket pointing in both directions. And also every stage of the thing every blastoff every separation. It's all in like, high daft great. That'll be fun to follow it on Godwin still around. I just so I I had the sickening thought. And I I keep wanting to not say it. But I've gotta let it out of me. So they sent it off with a dummy. Right. And the dummies fine great. But this is blasting somebody on a rocket. And I just kept thinking of when when a guy's gonna kick a field goal at the end of an NFL game. And they call it idiot annoying. Timeout, just as the guys about to snap the ball. And the kicker you know, if he makes that non counting field goal. You know, he's gonna miss it. The second time I just keep getting this weird feeling. I just but that's the understand how dangerous it is. But that's okay. There will be a tragedy at some point this winter. How that gets handled when you've got at least partial private sector involved. Yeah. Gosh, the contracts are seven thousand long, I hope, and I just I can't have any have every Tom dick, and Harry billionaire out there shooting people into space and burning them up. You know, people fine. You'll be fine where this helmet got. This does on on the internet got four and a half stars this rugged design. Yeah. But I I hope we're still a people that can handle the fact that if you're going to do astonishing things and reach for the unknown there's risk an- and sometimes disasters happen. And it's it's sad. And it's awful. But it's part of it. How about the Russian stickiness for eighty million dollars a seat? Yeah. When I fly somebody up in outer space in the reason, it all the time and probably taken away the amenities probably started with a full meal. Add not a bunch of surcharges like. Is a convenience fee. Late getting smaller than meals taken away. You got to pay for the movie, you gotta pay for your bags. And. Have a bag to pin as part of the spacesuit. Sorry, that's the bag. I have no idea for job by the Russians. Or if anybody would say, look, our clearest receiving a hell of a lot of money over a synonym up there. So come on. Yeah. So it's it's it's interesting though. And I like the idea of the government's saying looks basic says a bunch of different reasons to develop super great rockets, and they'll make a zillion bucks with end. We'll hitch a ride now and again as opposed to us just spending billions of dollars on sending guys up and down. It's a win win. It's good. So far. So far. Mars, Jack, the red planet. She was honest.

"His comments on white supremacy vote to reprimand the Iowa Republican will likely be held tomorrow. King has been under fire for questioning why the terms white nationalist. And white supremacist were offensive though, later, he said, he rejected those ideologies, Wisconsin. Prosecutors say they expect to release more information soon on the case against a man charged with kidnapping thirteen-year-old, Jamie clause and killing her parents two thousand eighteen saw significant gains for private companies in space, like SpaceX, blue origin, virgin, galactic and others. Christian Davenport covers the space industry for the Washington Post and spoke with komo's Taylor van Cise about what's in store for this year. Twenty nineteen marks fifty years since the first moon landing. Why? Why does unbeliev that it's twenty nineteen? That's going to be the turning point in the US space program. Yeah. I mean, it's really fortuitous. And a lot of ways you have this big anniversary. And you've got so much going on and space. The main thing I think is a twenty nine contained could be the year that NASA astronauts returned to space flying on rockets from US soil. I mean, I I think a lot of people don't realize that today, the United States NASA doesn't have the ability to fly its astronauts to the international space station from the US they go up on Russian rockets, and that capability could be restored as early as twenty nineteen by the two contractors that Nassar's working with and that's Boeing and SpaceX. So you could see a rocket launch from Cape Canaveral. The Kennedy Space Center with humans on it. For the first time since the space shuttle retired in twenty eleven another big thing happening in terms of human spaceflight is the development of the space tourism as you mentioned you saw big launch last month from virgin galactic with the to test pilots. Take their space plane to the. Space and back and they're hoping to do commercial operations flying tourists to space and back this year. Also, also this year blue origin, the company owned by Jeff Bezos, plant its first test flight with people on board as well. So he's got a lot going on for sure you name some of the big players there for twenty nine thousand nine is there anyone in your mind that really has the most approved to stay relevant. Well, I think they all have a lot to prove. I mean, you know, for all the attention and the hype that, you know, these billionaires in space get, you know, and I, you know, wrote a lot about them. I wrote about a book about these guys called the space Barron's. You know, the fact of the matter is that none of them not Elon Musk. Jeff Bezos, those guys have not flown people. And when Richard Branson did it? I'm virgin, galactic. Who was the first time that any of them had ever reached space at all? So whether they can do that reliably safely repeatedly that sort of I think, you know, a big milestone that all of them are going to have to prove you also write about the national space council being recon. Constituted under President Trump. What's their mission going to look like in two thousand nineteen will the very first directive that, you know, the national space council had one it was stood up under vice president Pence was a return to the moon. If you remember under President Obama, he had sort of said, you know, we had been to the moon. We've been there done that they were looking at going to an asteroid and then on to Mars, but the Trump administration made it very clear they want to return to the moon not just to sort of go put a plan to flag and walk around, but to build some sort of permanent base on the moon around the moon until they're they're starting with that. So you know, that is is a few years off. But that's a direction that they have for now as well. Pretty exciting stuff Christian Davenport with us on KOMO news.

Points out that the Miami Dolphins policy puts protesting the national anthem on, the same plane as testing positive for drugs or domestic violence. Charges the dolphins announcing today that any players who protest during, the anthem could be, fined suspended or. Both by now you're probably familiar with private spaceflight companies like Elon Musk's SpaceX that's been resupplying the international space Station now is Christian Davenport writes in the Washington Post Jeff bass oh company blue origin is one step closer to human spaceflight Davenport spoke with komo's Taylor van Cise what did blue origins new shepherd rocket achieve yesterday well it had a successful test flight it's nine of the sub orbital booster and the capsule that eventually will take human beings into space what they were testing this time was the sort of if there was an emergency if something went wrong with the booster and you needed. To get the crews away safely How you, would do that and they've they've done that test before but on. This particular one they did it at a very high altitude when. The rocket was just past the, edge of space and within the vacuum and then had the capsule fire its own motor motor and. Send the crew shooting away from the booster getting. Them to safety and then? The? Comeback down and then it was successful and they were able to do that and that sort of a? Key, test for them because, they are looking to fly humans to space. Perhaps early as this year for their test flights, and paying, customers, they, want to start selling tickets by as early as. Next year but before they start doing. That they're really going to test the rocket and? The, escape systems and all the safety. Parameters really vigorously and this is a key test in that regard do we know yet what what. How taxing it would. Be for someone just the casual tourist in space to go, through this escape system well on this particular one I think it would be quite taxing It would go really. High really fast and and? Come, back down I think they said that the you would have a maximum of ten Jesus that you'd feel? The, force of gravity ten, times but first short amount of period And come back through now obviously that's a pretty, rough and exhilarating ride but it's better than, the alternative, if everything goes normally on the flight I think it would be you know much less than that that it'd be about four jeeze I short amount of time on reentry and that of course is, after your up you know in, in space in unbuckled from your seatbelt and floating around the cabin and. Experience weightless environment that you? Report that blue. Origin hasn't. Said how, much, a ticket is gonna cost to go to space but. In a year or so there's probably gonna be. Some real, competition to provide space experience for customers.
