"Comeback Ninety minutes later and watch do the whole thing again. Also like I, think today when we're filming this. There's going to be another starlink launch, and of course delayed hasn't been delayed. Okay, but but in general after the Starlink launches and they're they're. They're going up every couple of weeks, so you'll have lots of opportunities over the summer you can find out from places like heavens, above when's going to be a startling pass, and it's pretty great to see this train of sixty satellites that are either visible or binocular visible. Just pass across in one big line. It's very surreal. It feels like you're looking at UFO's or something. And then over time they drift farther and farther apart, and they move up to their final altitudes, and but in at right after that launch. Time going outside with being able to watch the Starlink trail Passover over where you are, it's really surreal. Yeah, it really bill this this. Perfectly straight line of moving dots in formation going across the Sky I've I've never imagined something that would look quite like this and well. It's cool to see one. We're hoping that we never get more than one train at a time up there yeah. But while we have this, go check it out. It's kind of Cool Yeah Yep. What else can people see the summer? Those those are really the big things that you don't need a telescope for now. If you're willing to get that telescope, get particularly amazing pair of binoculars. Trying to dig into the Messier Cadillac. Highlights of the summer Hercules cluster thirteen, which you mentioned earlier, some people call it the chrysanthemum cluster. There's that ring Nebula just to binoculars fields away from Vega I. There's also again summer triangle it's. It's rich hunting people. There's the Dumbbell Nebula. and. This. Really is the time to get to know so many objects. My favorite start coming up. Early early in the morning we get an drama data. I know that's kind of like low picking fruit. Everyone Loves Andromeda, but now you know it's early in the morning. Apparently, everything cools early in the morning right now, but that's always the experience that you have because it's been a year since you've seen these things until you're desperate. To be able to to see the Orion nebula again, and then it starts to show up in the morning and you get up so that you can actually see it the no, then it moves. Every night it comes a little or a little liberal. Until it's just. There's a Ryan in the evening sky. December. and. One of my favorite random astronomy fact debates is dog days of summer that I remember hearing about on lemonade commercials as a little kid. That dog days of summer is referring to the star Sirius and the two dog constellations, cadence major and Kanaan's minor that accompany Orion in August serious rises right before the sun, and it was thought that the extra light from serious was what contributed to August being such A. Northern Hemisphere miserable month, and so it's the dog days of summer because of China's major in Kanaan's minor yeah. So, you're talking about getting binoculars. There are a bunch of comets. You can see in the sky this summer. We've got a couple of articles Dave. Dickenson has been writing a bunch of stuff on University of the one There's a new one e six lemon I think. But we're GONNA have a whole bunch of opportunities to see various comments coming and going over the summer but through. July, this one specific comment should get bright enough that you can actually see. It with the unaided eye, and definitely in a pair of binoculars, so we've got. Teach you hand stars one thousand nine. Why One thousand nine hundred for Atlas?.

"It went from being a nice tight little nucleus with a pretty little coma and a well formed tail to being at least three pieces three separately. Observable pieces are separating in distance that just within days after the episode were spread out by almost two thousand and four thousand kilometers and sorry atlas fail but you know what we we keep going Now did you trace what happened with our even interstellar comet seem to have gone through this as well yes so comet Boras Soave and this one's a bit tragic because poor comment Borisov. Here's an object that formed in another solar system that underwent some sort of gravitational interaction that flung it out of its home sent it our way and as it goes on its touristic journey through our solar system. The Sun is like and you're done broke it up and broke it up and I think the thing that's funny is that this is I mean the fact that that comment Borisov while while comment a move was so weird although now it looks like we might be able to explain it with the same thing but I was just like it was behaving precisely comment and every staff it with exactly and then of course. Obviously EXP- breaks apart and forms. A just like a comet ought to Borisov and it's just sad I mean this this thing existed for. We don't know how long it traveled. What tens of lightyears hundreds of light years maybe thousands of light years to get worse solar system and and then we just destroy it. This is why we can't have nice thing. Yep absolutely and so. Then we've got more more things that have really puzzling. Astronomers like how could you have this this object? That was ten times longer than it was. Why did it was like a spinning cylinder or a pencil? You know like Super Weird but if but astronomers just recently calculated in fact if look at it as a collection of broken up particles spinning around a common center of axis of rotation totally. What you're seeing here. And this is one of those cases that it wasn't made a comment stuff alone. We'RE LEARNING OVER TIME. More and more that asteroids and comments is a transition where you go from things that are mostly rock but you've still got some ices in there you never seem to ever completely escape. Isis and then you have objects that are mostly ice with a handful of dust and gravel mixed with Moore. There's probably an object that was more on the rocky side than the icy side but as it passed on a comet like orbit near hosts star or it was a truly huge comment. We can't know which whatever it's a regional status was as it passed near its home star it got disrupted and that disruption caused it to be a whole bunch of different pieces that each had slightly different velocities and so they stretched out into this long column Cigar. Call it what you will. Finger of collected stuff right now. Any volatile that were in this probably got baked out but this now column of stuff was gravitationally Kinda drawn back together and essentially cold welded into a new object now. We don't know if this is more rubble pile like Bhanu or you goo- or if because this was a disrupted cloud of debris if if it was molten enough to form a more of a solid object. I don't know that heating mechanism that went into it but whatever it was but imagine destroy something to get a Moa and again so I I you know we started this conversation talking about what happened with. Comet Shoemaker Levy nine that you started with this this solid comet it went past Jupiter it got the gravity of Jupiter toward into this string. It came back around for another run and then it crashed into Jupiter. But what if instead of you know flew past Jupiter or flew past? The Sun was torn into the string of material but then was kicked out of the entire solar system and then flew through the cosmos for a hundred million years. Whatever some enormous amount of time and that all of those objects slow back together into as you say you know. The cold welded just one on top of the other. That seems to explain the behavior and the what this thing looked like which is again just an absolutely fascinating idea. It's so exciting to the more exciting to me okay. Fine an alien spacecraft his work setting but what I think about legitimate a rendezvous with right but when you think about legitimate answers for what was that one is very exciting to me and I just love the dynamical differences that you can run into because if something is on a fairly lazy orbit elliptical in towards the Sun it lingers too long and the pieces get shredded too much to SIPA. -tated too much you end up with icing but if you have something that's on a super fast orbit that's actually in the process of flinging it out of a solar system that parabolic hyperbolic orbit then crossing time is so fast that it gets torn apart but the pieces don't get too far apart to not gravitationally still cling onto one another. So it's the fact that these pieces still clung together. That tells us this happened during one really zippy approach near whatever it is the tore it apart. So what does this tell us? Do you think in general. I mean if if I mean if we what do we mark off like five or six objects all of which were GONNA be a return to Kentucky or Hale Bopp and instead we just got debris blowing in our General Direction on tells me is the one good thing generation x? Got Was a cool comet in our face belittles the exactly okay boomer so right and so but I mean just like as we watch as we've as strong are watching the skies looking and hoping for the next really bright comment that we could see. We should be mentally emotionally prepared for for instant. Yeah disappointment. Don't think that it's that you're GonNa get the common that you think you deserve. Comments are extraordinarily fragile. That's that's one of the lessons and those that aren't too fragile. Don't tend to get awesome tales. They don't tend to get awesome. Komo's it takes that heat to make them glorious so I was GonNa say sadness. I always find it so funny though right because we're already off. Were already onto the new hotness. So we've got a new comet that looks like it's going to be the one that's going to to the Swan. Yes Swan comets ones. We've got an article on on Universe today Just just about that. Dave Dickenson is is working on that. Yeah so like who know it is true. Yeah true which I think is only great because we just so quickly forget that last universes linus. We're Charlie Brown. Comments are football so stay tuned maybe Swan. It's going to be the one anyway. We'll see what happens. Pamela Gypsum names. This week I do as as always I just WanNa say thank you all the patrons out there that are supporting and I also want to say. I know a lot of you are really struggling right now. I see it reflected in. We lost a whole lot of patrons sense Cova started. We see you. We understand. We're here for you worry about it. Join our communities play a game of ticket to ride? And no you're not alone world and know that you don't you know that that supporting the work that we do is purely optional. And if and if financial hardship is difficult for you in any in any way shape or form. Don't stretch yourself to contribute to us. You know really if you need some place to just go and find other humans. The weekly space hang out crew has you. Yeah Join US and we'll get through all of this together. It's what we have always done. You guys have carried us for so many years and the we can do is say come. Let's just get through this socially staying close through the Internet and and and we don't WanNa go too far down. The trap told we only had fourteen cases in British Columbia yesterday. So we're down to a handful and we're now talking about reopening our economy starting to to stage in the different kinds of of businesses opening up again restaurants being able to open but with new measures put in place if that works and we don't see the cases right like like we're all at different stages of this crisis and and hopefully as you see people you know as some of us are able to reach the other side of it we will extend lifelines and emotional support to help and give and show you that the work you're doing to stay home and socially distance there is a light on the other end of this tunnel and it's GonNa be okay. We've just got to get through it and and the whole world has to do this together so so now more than ever reach out find community. Conne- connect and and you don't need to support US financially and we're here to support you Emotionally so but there are some names. There are some names so. I want to thank William Andrews Jack Mark Grundy William Lower Jeremy Kirwin Bruno. Let's Michelle Colin J Alex Anderson Dustin a Ralph Joe Wilkinson Marco La- Rossi Mark Stephen Razz neck. Brian Kelly and Jessica felt. Thank you fake everyone. Pamela. We'll see next week next week. Thank you for listening to astronomy.

"Weekly fax piece of journey through the cosmos. Who helped you understand? Not only what we knew but how we know what we know. I'm Fraser. Cain publisher of university and with me as always Dr Pamela Gay Senior Scientists for the Planetary Science Institute and the directive caused request. Pam How you doing. I'm doing well. How are you doing Fraser again? With the with the caveat of the apocalypse I am. I am doing great. I am staying busy. I am learning Chinese. I am I am. Gardening are are Mason. Bees have have come out of there. Heidi holes and now they're starting to polydor plant a hanging out playing a lot of video games hanging out with my kid All my other kid is is out there on the front lines. It's it's surreal and we're getting through it. That's that's all any of us can possibly to this point. Yeah exactly all right. So last month astronomers announced they had detected a tiny asteroid that had been captured by the Earth's gravity will and in bed sharing our orbit for a few years today. Let's talk about the smallest moons in the solar system. Pemba what what is like what's the line when you got to move like I'll be titan. The Moon Moons Ganymede big around three moons on a piece of dust that hits the that is going around the earth. Statham Moon No. When does it become a moon? Well so the reason I went no to the piece of dust is is because that that doesn't fully count as a geologic object yet. It's just a piece of dust. I think you need to be at least a few meters inside his right but when it comes to many moon what I love about. These things is it kind of fit in your garage. Yeah Yeah I think any any astronomical object smaller than a house yeah calling many is totally legit. Well okay so before we go any deeper into this. I need to at least lodge a protest with the name. Many moon because We for many years on universe today. It's been one of our writer guidelines that the opposite of a super moon is a mini moon. Oh so soon other words if you're GONNA so this was a term coined by Dave Dickenson that that towards the Super Moon is the is the. This is Harry Earth. Yeah when you got the moon closest to the earth and the moon is full then you get super moon. And then the opposite of that where the moon is the farthest and it's a full moon that we had been calling a mini moon and apogee and package is related to the sun. And so we were trying to get the trying to get that term to stick I. Then a month ago everybody started calling the this little moon mini moon. And and we're done so so but but I still hold out for milk drama so again that it's like seriously you write for university you call it and drama and drama way. You're gone you fired. You call it you call milk media. Just give me your resignation. So that's just that's just the way. I run universe today with an iron fist and but I know with many moon. I can't I just can't live I just I just can't can't fight this one. Yeah so so. Let's talk about then. Okay so all right so we definition something. It's still a moon if you can see if it if it just barely fits into your garage. Yeah I think that's a definition. Yeah yeah if it. If it landed on you it would kill you. That is probably the best definition perfect. Okay we've decided okay if it lands on you and it can kill you. Then it is that it is a moon yes perfect and and this all goes back to the idea that we called everything going around the Earth. A satellite before we had man made satellites and then our moon was the biggest of these satellites and then humanity got a little bit screwed up because we heard making our own stuff and shoving in orbit and those recalled satellites and people started to think. There's the Moon. That's a natural object. Then there's satellites there's man made objects and this idea that satellites were just things in orbit got lost so we needed a new world new. A new word for these worlds and many moon was what folks came up with. And the one that we've found recently isn't like the first one or anything. I it's just the most recent back. In Two thousand six the good folks at the Catalina Sky Survey who are out there trying to protect us from falling rocks and they've found one of these back in two thousand and six and as all good many moons do it flew away and it turns out the one that was found. This year has also left our orbit as of March twentieth so we are currently without ever so temporarily a mini moon that we know about that we know about but it could very well be that there are many of these. Fem to- moons. Someone is calling in the cat. I'm I going to do everything I can to not use this time. So yes so. We've got these two moons And and they are captured temporarily by the Earth's gravity well and they spend a little time in our vicinity now are they just orbiting around the earth. Just like the moon does or is there orbit a little more peculiar. I'm I'd say. Chaotic is the word we want these. These objects are generally coming in from an orbit that probably originated as far out as the asteroid belt but they got perturbed along the way and got sent at just. The right velocity that they got smacked up by the Earth's gravity the moon's gravity by the Earth Moon Systems gravity and they went from being purely orbiting the sun to orbiting in this messy spiral graph pattern that wove them around the earth. Sometimes around the moon depends on the object in a way that's constantly changing and processing as it interacts with the different gravities. This is your quintessential unstable multi body system right to to the moon. The Earth is the biggest thing out there and it's happy to orbit us from here to Kingdom Come Earth Moon. Sun Not really a three body problem because you can reduce the earth and moon to two bodies that aren't together hanging around the sun but these little rocks are like Oh expletive I see the moon. It has a large effect on the earth. It has a large effect on me and I was already on an elliptical orbit around the sun and so they tend to come in got get caught for a little while and then end up to sort of going back around the sun right and and so I mean it didn't take a lot of energy change energy for it to fall into orbit around the earth and it doesn't take much of a change of energy for it to fall back out of orbit around the earth and back to to the sun so this most recent object. How how big do astronomers think that it was? It was a couple of meters. It was basically the size of like a large boulder. You might climb at Park without worrying that you were going to fall off the large boulder a car a washing machine. Yeah I've heard like washing machine car something. You know something that you could give a hug to a couple of meters like to feed on it. Not Two feet meters on its long axis. Maybe not big just just big enough to see basically but we are seeing these objects like this. Not just around the earth and of course. This is the first time that we've seen them. We're also seeing fairly small objects that are doing interesting things other objects in the solar system as well and and the idea is that because our solar system went through traumatic times like the great heavy bombardment that scattered chunks of world in all directions. We have these one. Two three meter class objects on random trajectories all of our solar system just waiting to get put into orbits in some cases even around some of the largest moons. It is numerically possible for Ganymede to capture one of these and have a mini moon orbiting the moon around a big world. In which case we refer to the mini moon not as many moon because it's now orbiting a full-sized moon and it becomes what And in one earth and sky articles referred to as a moon moon and everyone embraced the topic without realizing that moon moon was a really silly wolf related. Me We go with Kuhn attune. I have not heard this. Yeah that's that's my. That's my favorite term again as an editor. I get to I get to enforce these this with an iron fist. And so I really like tune moon and then you gotta tune and the tune is a moon that goes around a moon. Should we have clarified the terminology before we even started this show? No I think this is half the fun of this episode so true more laughter in our lives right now in this laughter. We're going to go with. I like moon moon because it means every time I google moon I get lots of Dorky. Pictures of wolves doing really silly things wolfing that the the Canadians in the audience will know why like the term tune. Which is that In Canada our two dollar coin. Okay hold on our one dollar coin called the Loonie loon right because it's got the bird on it and so we call the two dollar coin a -Tuni- even though it has a polar bear on it. Yeah and I. I love Canadian money Canadian coins because they feel like like gold medallions. Just feels like you've got a if I hand you like a whole bunch of of loonies. Write these beautiful little gold coins. And you've a handful of gold pirate. Yar feels like for those in the US. If you've ever had a Susquehanna dollar it feels like the Susquehanna gold dollars. Yeah so anyway tune. So but but it's actually like a tune or moon moon has never been found and you would think we think about the universe right. We think about how you've got galaxies going around galaxy clusters you've got you've got stars going around Galaxy Cores. You've got pilots. Doctoral you've got planets right and you've let sure you've got asteroids with their own moons which I was GonNa talk about Diddy diddy most in a second as well and yet we don't see it seems like it seems to stop at that point. We don't see planets with moons and then those moons have moons although is Say the Lunar Carson's orbiter currently orbiting around the moon a amendment. Yeah a toon. I so this is where we have to remember that Lil L. R. O. Has to keep correcting its orbit and this is part of the problem in order to not experienced the chaos of the three body interaction. These new tiny objects flying in have to snuggle up into one gravity. Well or the other so they can either snuggle in right next to the earth they can snuggle in right next to the moon and whichever one of those two places they go. They'RE GONNA get lost in well all the other stuff. That's either there or lost in the glow of that object so if there was one of these little two meter objects orbiting the same way L. O. Was FIRST OF ALL. It wouldn't be entirely stable because it doesn't have anything to boost its orbit on regular basis but second of all it would be really hard to see because it would be right next to the. Super Bright Moon and if the moon isn't super bright than it's super close to the sun and we get lost in the glare of the sky and the same problem happens with other worlds. Yeah I think you really hit the nail on the head there which is that L. L. R. O. Which has been nicely in orbit around the moon for a for quite a while now is having to continuously reboost itself. Even though it's not moving through any kind of atmosphere is getting its orbit changed over time through the interactions of the earth and the moon and so without those changes. It would just be a matter of time before it crashed into the Moon. Like all the others have right exactly. Yeah Yeah and and so it becomes hard to find one of these tiny objects in the light of Ganymede on the other side of our solar.
"dave dickenson" Discussed on Reliable Sources with Brian Stelter
"Back on the reliable sources. PODCAST I'm your host Brian stelter. I'm here with Dave Dickenson of the Washington. Post he runs the post. Tick Tock Operation Asian right now. The Post has more than two hundred thousand followers on Tick Tock seven point five million likes over the past six months talk has been in the news for lots lots and lots of reasons including in this brand new Washington Post story written by a couple of Dorgan's colleagues I drew and Tony Romm They have a story titled Inside. Tick Tock Culture class where. US views about censorship often were overridden by the Chinese bosses. Now Dave I know you're on the content creation side. You don't cover tick talk a business. But there's been this controversy about talks ownership it's owned by the Chinese tech giant Bite dance does does this factor into your thinking about to talk doc it all. It doesn't I I know it's a boring answer but I was hired to make content. So that's what I focus on During Tony do an incredible job at the reporting on tick tock as well as facebook Google and apple so as always. I've just let them stay in their lane. And I work on making funny tectonics and I guess. That same idea applies if you're posting to facebook when working with the Washington Post or or posting you know working with Apple News in the difference between the the relationship is the content creators and then the folks who are covering these businesses So that story is up in the Washington Post Web site. It is very interesting but it's a it's a separate conversation you know. We're we're tick Tock I do to me. It's Kinda thing that feels like it comes out of nowhere are all of a sudden. You know people like me who are a little older maybe not on the target Demo Star hearing about it all the time and I wonder you know how do you explain it to people how that how that what happens how these how these APPs or how these platforms suddenly take off. It's hard to explain. I think if you spend enough time online like like you and I probably both to maybe too much time you can start to see what's working what isn't working and I just I just feel that tick tock Someone who has made they'd videos for a while now especially politically based videos or just debase. Videos I saw it as a huge opportunity. I it's hard to explain. I don't I wanNA sound like a you know just saw it saw the future or something but if you are around enough it it it it made perfect sense to me. Yeah we were talking earlier about some some of the techniques some of the capabilities of Tick Tock You mentioned music being one of those and a lot of these Tick Tock videos Have these music clips. What are the other sorts parts of ability? Is that make this unique. You know that. Make this different from youtube or make this different from other platforms. Yeah and especially vine I would say to it which is as as we said that the number one comparison for one thing you yes you can use music but you can also upload your own audio and only can you upload your own audio but other people can use that audio audio. So maybe you did some weird remix of Dora the explorer which has been done. And we did talk with that remix you can reuse that sound and as long as you do it within the fifteen seconds. If it's a longer video you have to create your own sound you can also use video effects and there's hundreds of them now and they're actually really fun fun. It's sort of like what you see on snapchat except in this case they've really gone crazy where it's it's really based on. What can you make entertaining video with? Added the technology actually behind it is is pretty cool in that way as well So there's a lot of options and every day there's trending hashtags and you can jump on that. That's something I often do. If I feel feel like I really wanted to get the account a jump start as I see the Hashtag and then I use that Hashtag To inform whatever video or making that day and make something of the newsroom That's somewhat related to that. Do this point a long list of ideas for future Tuxedo. I've got a really weird long list. Some of them make no sense. I wrote down the other day just Roomba and I don't remember what that meant. I think I wanted to Roomba in the newsroom. Going around but I got to figure out what that idea was but some of them are fully performed. And it's it's fun because I think actually because they're so short you can usually figure out An idea pretty quickly every morning and and I liked that creative exercise a lot. It's kind of like my own little crossword puzzle that I have to get done before noon and that. There's actually a lot of excitement of that. What's your favorite overall trend on? Tick Tock right now. Oh Man. I wasn't prepared. There's so many couple. There's there's a sort of trend that usually goes with The popular dance trend. But a Lotta Times now and this has been happening for a little bit. But I'm seeing more and more where people do a popular dance with their parents and even if their parent is good at the dance. Great if they're bad even better And it's actually like kind of wholesome. It's really nice to see These kids having their parents participate in the talk with them. And then the tick tock goes viral and you can see how excited they are in the comments. I mean it feels almost very sort of like ninety Internet and that way where it's just everyone's just excited to be on the APP So I I do like that kind of trend. I like Trans that use a song in an an interesting way where they just take one lyric and they'd turn that lyric into the punchline video. It'd be hard to explain it without showing you video but people are very creative and how they use a song. Yeah I guess I'm torn in this conversation every minute I'm going back and forth between thinking this is fascinating this world. I I WANNA be a part of it when understand it. Then there's this there's this I guess maybe it's the older part of my brain. That's thinking this has no connection to media or journalism but of course it does it does because wherever people are gathering and wherever attention is is focused. Then that's a space for medium for journalism exactly and when I first read about tick Tock December last year. It already had I think at that point over a billion downloads and by the time we started one point four billion downloads. And you just. You don't ignore audience anyway. I also happen to be really excited about the APP but I mean you. You just can't ignore an audience that big especially with Gen Z.. Is Generation listen to me that I I. I'm really fascinated by and really Sort of encouraged by burt number of reasons us both in their need and desire to be informed but it also Internet literacy I think they're really good at kind of having a sort of a BS meter. They know they're being lied to. And they know when someone's genuine and I think think we've managed to pull off on Tick Tock You know that we're just genuine about wine to be there and I think tick tock in general encourages that more rafeal as opposed to you know for for instance. The Polish look on instagram right above until now up until just now when I downloaded the APP only experienced tectonics through people reposting them on instagram or twitter or facebook is that sufficient or people have to have the APP to really get it. You know I maybe I should be telling you to download it but I actually think it's up to every person you know if you WANNA spent. Here's the thing if you download tick tock you're GONNA lose three hours today because you'll just get addicted immediately lake and you'll be on that homepage going scrolling constantly and that's great but You know if you follow the Washington Post or me on twitter or just WanNa you know. Look Tick Tock up on twitter at. You'll find a lot of great talks. It's really up to each individual Mitchell person. it's kind of just social media appetite. It's like a food pyramid. What are you gonNA spend your most time on for me? It's twitter and talk and I think that's you know that's a separate application. Maybe but that's that's different for every person and the rest of your job you allude to this earlier I mean people can find our work on Washington Post Dot com looking up your name. You know you have a lot of other projects you're involved volved with So so what are those When when I first started the very first thing we launched a series called shortcake's and it's interview kids we've done? I think forty forty eight of forty two episodes at this point where I just go out and I talked to kids wherever we are Iowa State Fair here in DC the Super Bowl and we just ask them questions? It's it's sort of our version of kids say the darndest things It was actually brought up in my interview to do something like Art Linklater Link Lauder Nick later to millennial to say his name a- and so that actually does really well. Because not unlike tick tock. It's it can be sort of topical issues that can like we have one coming out soon about impeachment but it's from a kid's perspective and they don't really have politics you know they. They are still just kind of excited to be talking to me on on you know in front of a bunch of cameras and they're just wanted to say something that makes me laugh and That works really well with shortcake's and then we have the Department of Satire. which is a youtube channel? I'd launched here not long after short takes and we do satirical videos. Anywhere from reading. Sean Spicer's latest book in a bathtub to reenacting eighteen. The call the Anthony Mooch had with Ryan Liza for that New Yorker piece which we use an actual like really great actor and Yeah all kinds of things a- and sometimes this stuff is really effective. Because we'll do something like hearing was Sucker Berg and we'll mark Zuckerberg and will speed up The whole hearing into three minutes using the actual full speed and up to about two hundred percent so they sound like chipmunks then you actually learn a lot but you're laughing at Mark Zuckerberg's better laughing at the same time Dave thanks so much for taking into this world and and convinced me a download the APP absolutely.

"dave dickenson" Discussed on The Big Story
"Involved in Andrew kinsman disappearance. That's how it was initially. And then he becomes a suspect in the murder, and also there are these men who disappeared from the village and their disappearances have never been solved. In this causes us. Concern. So it's being the c conduct strongly. They're being put together. Right. I think what has upset many people in the community from what I'm hearing from my sources, is that there was some kind of element of gas lighting that was going on, because there had been you know, this year's long concern that men had been going missing and people were saying the word serial killer that to have the chief of police say that there wasn't there wasn't the evidence to back that up and then only a few weeks later. Sure enough. That's what they had on their hands. That has been destabilizing I think to, to too many people, you can see though. How how quickly it evolved from having Bruce, MacArthur be a suspect in intricate. Kinsman skilling to suddenly being a serial killer. We know that, that actually happened in the course of a day. Tell me about the rest of that day. Then once they find the photos. What happens? So the decision is made to arrest MacArthur, but to preserve the integrity of a major case like this, they have to do everything possible to make sure that Abbott's is not lost. It's important to remember that at this time they didn't know if Bruce MacArthur was acting alone. So there were people that they thought might be helping him. They had no evidence I should stress it no evidence of that. But they, they didn't have evidence to the contrary, either. So they had to make sure that police were in place, and that, that warrants were in the in the process, you know before the courts to be able to search certain addresses that included the Mallory crescent address where we know sadly know that Bruce, had had kept some of his victim's bodies, all of us victim's bodies. So they knew that they needed some time to get that in place, two or three days. So that. Vision is made we're going to arrest him. I believe it was on a Saturday. And I think it was a Wednesday and, you know, give or take a few days in there, and so they decided we're going to watch him, you know, round the clock and get everything in place. But there's a caveat and caveat is from the images, they've found they know that, that it's very likely that Bruce, MacArthur killed one person or more in his bedroom or in his apartment and prior to that the theory had been that Andrew kinsman had been killed in his van. And so police have ways to intervene and, and have far more control when the scene of a crime per se is of the Ecole they don't have that control when it's an apartment when someone's own residence. So the rule the caveat was under no circumstances can Bruce MacArthur, be alone in his home with another man. And sure enough. What does he do lesson? Twenty four hours later. He takes a man back to his apartment alone. And then what happens well, everything the way that I understand. It was it was sort of controlled chaos. The decision is made to arrest. Macarthur immediately. There are already some officers at MacArthur apartment building. Dave Dickenson the primary investigator goes to the scene very quickly and they go up his apartment, and they arrest him and what's really quite tragic, and remarkable is that the individual who he had in his apartment. The core core documents had identified him by a student, John and John had been handcuffed and was naked and black bay had been put over his head. And that's when police went into the apartment they found him handcuffed and Justice McMahon, who was the judge on this case said in, in basically no uncertain terms that he was sure that John was going to be the next victim. So. So it was it was really good that they intervened. What did some of the police officers that you talked to in the course of this investigation? Tell you it was like to work on something like that. That was stale for so long. And then finished so quickly and furiously what I know is that they are really pleased at that they could bring some finality to the families who had been wondering for so long, you know, in that point can't be overstated. These people didn't know what happened to their loved ones. That's different from having your relative be the victim of violent crime. And so to have number one, the uncertainty of what happened. And then, number two finally finding out what happened in having it be so horrific. Those are two different kinds of grief as I understand it. And so, at least to bring an end to the suffering of not knowing I think that has been really big for, for the police that I have heard from. I think it's important to know that there is an ongoing review right now done by former Ontario court of appeal Justice Gloria up Stein. How do the police feel about that? They talk to you about that at all. This was this was officially endorsed by the Toronto. Police chief Saunders has supported this and it's trying to police services board who unanimously passed, basically the for this altogether to be perfectly honest with you. I think that they actually support it because it's going to come out with some recommendations about how did you things better? And everyone can can get behind that. I think. Thanks, wendy.

"dave dickenson" Discussed on Astronomy Cast
"Upon lists upon lists. This is the go-to guy to have sitting next to your telescope. And you know, you don't have to update it every year. But if you have someone in your life who uses a telescope, go ahead and get them one. They're gonna love it. Yep. To go along with that guide of of you know, I mean that's realistic. What's happening over the course of the year and for the upcoming years all of the we can predict that are special to vote and watch. And. Yeah, absolutely. We we rely on that. I know Dave Dickenson depends on that book. And it's great that that it's a Canadian publication to go along with that I recommend to pieces observing gear. And we, you know, we make these recommendations every year, but I wanna to lay it down in stone here. I if a person is really into seeing the night sky and want to get into astronomy start with a pair of astronaut astronomical Benach, yours I recommend the fifteen by seventy five's which is a good sort of a balance between the aperture, and they make the vacation that you're gonna get with the just sort of wait of carrying things around and make a bigger one at twenty five by hundreds. But they're just a big go with the fifteen by seventy five. It's a great way to learn the night sky. And then the second thing is to go with a dob Sony in telescope. I'm now convinced we had the star party at astronomy cast five. Hundred. I got a chance to play with every single different kind of telescope, and the the dub Sonian were just I just kept going back to these dubs Onians because you grab the front of the telescope wrenched around to new target very robust, very quick to be able to do it. And if anyone's got one of the fancier telescopes if you've gone and gotten a. You know, like a nice Mead or a Celeste strong with a great little motor driving. You spend all night. You're like oh Saturn's up. Okay, everybody. Let's go take a look at it. And then an hour late. You're still trying to polar align the telescope and make it track Saturn. Just. Don't do it. Oh, two. Just go with a nice dub Sonian. They're inexpensive for a maybe a fi, you know, for like an eight inch telescope, you're gonna spend maybe three hundred dollars through an fifty dollars. And it is just the greatest way to start. This a great. I don't know what you call them. It's like a target like a Tele RAD differs. Yes. Attila right. Yeah. Looks like a bullseye their fabulous. So great so fast. And so if you know the sky, then you just go with that. And you could oh, it's it's the greatest. So that's that's that's my recommendation, if you if you wanna get someone there I way to see the nights guy, get them the binoculars. And if you just wanna go with you, you know, you're gonna wanna look at the moon and Saturn and Jupiter and some of the brighter objects then go with that dub Sony telescope, and it's the fastest way. And really everyone wants a pair of binoculars no matter what you're doing. And I personally like my binoculars to have a slightly big. Field of you. So I go with a pair of ten by forty twos. And that makes it easy to star hop to go find the big faint fuzzies that are out there sprawling across the sky, but you need a dark location if you're doing this. But the thing that you get to do it's been Oculus that you don't get to do really any other way is just star hop and for star hopping this where it starts to get cool to have well, some of the cool software that's out there. And this is where you just take your friends device. And you're like, let me help you and you install still REM for them. It's completely free. Yes. And give them them. Benach yours show them still REM put it in the night sky settings and you're off and you can find things and for your phone. There's all sorts of different apps. Find the one you like best trial of most of them affray. That allow you to move your phone around and figure out exactly what it is that you're looking at. So don't forget software while you're in the process of spending buco bucks to find things. The software defined the things too. Yep. Time for the book. So this is not space, but it's space adjacent. And this is the new skeptics guide to the universe. Book by Steve novella and the rest of the team at skeptics guide to the universe. And if you listen to the skeptics guide, you know, how just mart they are. I mean, Steve novella knows everything about everything and has finally taken the time to write the comprehensive book on being a on being a skeptic and. You know, the book that got me into skepticism originally was the was demon haunted world by Carl Sagan that that just blew my mind. Oh, yeah. Yeah. I was definitely not a skeptic until I read demon haunted world, and then upon reading it was like, okay. Yep. I get it. This is of course, you know, people believe in nonsense, and they shouldn't believe nonsense, and and this is the way to do it. And and from that point forward, I've sort of perceived the world with entirely new is. And and the same thing goes, you know, is the is the modern version of that is these skeptics guide to the universes new book. I mean, if you listen to the podcast, I hope you already know about it. But if you didn't realize used to listen to the podcast, and he didn't realize come up with a book it's out, and it's wonderful. So definitely go with that. Well, I'm gonna go back to a quick. 'cause that's kind of the thing that I apparently no better 'cause I read fiction mostly. So so the thing recommend there is Celeste next image. There's a whole series of these little webcams that are designed for your piece. And sometimes you just wanna share what you're looking out with the world, or at least someone who's inside where it's warm and these next images will let you do that the let you show up on a big screen, whether it is that someone would see if they look through your little piece, this makes it easier for people like little kids who don't necessarily know how to look through pieces and other not that expensive. I'd get the most expensive when you can afford because what you can see does get better the more expensive.

"Trying to be cast episode, five old one water, world's welcome to astronomy caster, weekly facts based journey through the cosmos where we help you understand not only what we know, but how we know what we know. I'm Fraser Cain publisher of universe today with me as always Dr. Pamela gave the director of technology and citizen scientist. The astronomical society, the Pacific and the director of caused the quest hip him how you doing. I'm doing well, how are you doing? Great. We're into the new season. I guess, episode five hundred was official beginning of the new season, but now we're back to our regular schedule. Of course, always looking to mix things up. You're not strength now and we'll be for this, but like a complete professional in a trooper. You are recording five in the morning in a sleepy bed and breakfast in the outskirts of Melbourne. It's fabulous. And our shows a teenager. Like worth thirteen seasons olds now. So does this mean that we get to cover all of the bratty discussions strana may now that's exactly it. Yeah. Now it goes to that rebellious stage where just tells us that it hates to sit hates us in, hates us. Not that that's my personal experience from this at all having teenagers. So I have something really important to shamelessly self promote, and I'm probably going to do even more for this, but I just want to begin what is going to be pretty much a straight month of shameless self promotion. And here it is boom. Check it out for the podcast listeners. Of course, you can't hear what I just showed to Pamela it is the universe today, ultimate guide to viewing the 'cause MOS, which is the new book written by Dave Dickenson n me featuring. This is the part that I'm proudest about a forward by Dr Pamela gang. Yes. So family wrote the forward David. The book I helped and the help that I did that I'm most proud about and I'll bring this up again and again is the photographs. So we've got probably more than a hundred separate Astro photographs by Ving seventy five, at least different photographers and what's amazing about it. Just gonna keep holding it up. Is that it's pictures that you've never seen before each one of these photographs was taken by an amateur Astra photographer. No Hubble space telescopes. Okay. Find there's a few Hubble space telescopes in the book. But in general, the vast majority of the voters that are in this book or all individuals. And this was really the goal which was like, if we're going to teach you how to be an amateur astronomer, you aren't going to get access to your own Hubble space telescope. I want to show you what's possible as just a regular person with skill and patience and some reasonable gear. So a huge. Thank you to all of the Astro photographers. It was kind of like hurting. Cats to get everybody involved. But in the end feral cats, you were hurting feral cats. Exactly. But in the end it worked out great and I think everyone's going to be really, really pleased with what the final product looks like. It's available for preorder right now on Amazon's and Barnes and nobles and things like that. And I'm not exactly sure what's going on, but for some reason, you can pre-order it on Amazon US for eighteen eighty nine while the actual print price is twenty eight dollars. And so I'm not exactly sure. Maybe that's just the preorder price. Someone should help me get to the bottom of this. This is some kind of special promotion incentive that I should be mentioning. So what I'm saying is that peers that the prices extra cheap by quite a bit eighteen dollars for a hard cover full color book. This is a true coffee table book. Yeah. Well, maybe you know what? It feels like the players handbook for dungeons and dragons, if you wanna sort of imagine a book that it feels like if you've got one of those, this is almost exactly what it is, but that thing you leave on your coffee table because every person who enters your house will want to flip through it. That's that's what this is. Absolutely. Now I have one, tiny shameless plug tiny compared to this. You just returned from doing one of the Astra tours with Dr Paul, Matt Sutter. I have now posted my tour for next year. So if you want to go travel through the American southwest which is kinda my home, it's where I spent all my summers growing up. You can do this, go to Astra tours dot co slash star strider and registered today, and we will see the great observatories in the great desert's of America. This is like nowhere else in the world. If you're going to come to the United States, this is where I would send you agreed apologies all the shame from promote. But we've been gone for several months, so we got to catch up. So people go to Astra tours dot CO to sign up for your trip slash star strategy shirt, but it's they can scroll down right? And they're gonna have splaine how to misspell star strider got very complicated, made more complicated. So go to astroturf. That's you. Browse down until you find Pamela trip, do it. And of course, if you wanna pick up her book preorder now go to Amazon search for universe today, and I'm sure you'll find it pretty quickly. All right. Let's get in to the actual show. We're now learning that the vast majority of potentially habitable worlds out. There are actually icy moons like your Roca and Selous good news. There are hundreds if not thousands of times more of them than worlds like earth, bad news, though, Lockton ice what have we learned about the water and the potential for habitability we've talked to bit about water in the solar system. We've talked a bit about the moon's in the solicitation. We've mentioned a lot of these discoveries about hydrogen gas that's coming out of. Of Enceladus the geysers on Europa and Enceladus. I think if one huge fem- that has gone in the background of planetary science while we've been doing this show, if we talk twelve years ago, where should we be looking for life?

"Episode, four ninety two, comet asteroid and Kuyper belt, object update, welcome to Stratocaster weekly facts based journey through the cosmos. You understand not only what we know what, how we know what we know. I'm Cain publisher of university with me as always Dr. Pamela gave the director of technology in citizen science had the astronaut, Michael society, the Pacific end, the director of cosmic quest you doing. I'm doing well, how are you doing? Doing really well. We just got the new cover art for the book that we are going to be publishing turns can be coming out on December the sixth. Oh, cool, and written by Dave Dickenson and the title is the universe today. Ultimate guide to view in the cosmos, everything you need to know to become an amateur strana Mer, and we've got probably close to a hundred different. Amateur, astronomers, including some pictures from you. Your writing the four. Award for the book, Dave Dickenson road it. I am sort of helping out behind the scenes to actually bring the book together and coordinate with all of the Astro photographers. So this is I hope going to be a really great book and anyway, so we now see the cover. We know the publishing date. The publisher is laying out all the pages. So I'm sure you more and more about this book as we get closer to actually publishing, which is awesome. And you know, another reminder get writing. I know you've come forward to. Right, I do. All right. Well, let's get on with it. So another topic with plenty of updates since we started astronomy cast, we visited many smaller objects in the solar system up close from series invested a or not to mention a comet, what have we learned all the things? Yeah, so so much for all of those topics when we didn't have a lot of updates. Now there's probably no way we're going to be able to get everything compressed into this show, but let's just go quickly. Okay, so let's start with asteroids. What have we learned about asteroid. Loyd's since I guess you know whatever episode we did asteroids probably in the low teens. So I think the most important thing that we realized which makes out what I said in the comets episode to be a complete lie is in our early solar system, things were really hot. The planet earth got completely baked dry, and our water on our planet had to come from space. And what I said before was all of their swatter came from comments, bombarding our planet, and I was wrong. I was completely wrong. We now believe that the water in our planet earth probably came from early asteroids impacting our planet giving off their water. And thus from the delivery of many potatoes became many oceans. So we got our water from asteroids comets. Yeah. So this is one of those things that you hear it and you're making the face. I know. I know. I know. This is actually kind of new to me is just sort of trying to process this. So we've now had spacecraft go out and sample the regular water to heavy-water the h. two o. two well with normal hydrogen to the deteriorate to water. So heavy-water that has extra neutrons. We've gone out and for come at Haley for one of the comet Hartley's and four, Sherry. Gerry last year we've measured their ratios and well Haley was like, totally off, fine move on. So we looked at comet heartland. It was like, okay, this would matches were good. It came from the Kuyper belt, therefore we shall blame the Kuyper belt comets for all of our water. But then here we are looking with resent at sixty seven, Pete c g. And it's deteriora- show is off and what was realized just like one ethin- in college can totally wreck your entire GPA even if everything else is all as and Bs one super high deteriora- xio can wreck your entire oceans ratios. So even if we run models where earth was mostly hit by Kuyper, belt comments, and we soon most of them are like the Hartley that was studied and not like CG sixty seven p we can't get to what's actually observed on earth with comets, if any of them have this super high determine amount. Now, while a lot of comments are dry, the dawn mission which has gone out and given us up close observations about Vesta in series founded series that we have a world with ice geysers with. With potential ice Volkan ISM that well series is not wet with liquid water, but it's wet with ice and this existence of water frozen into rocks in the past when asteroids hadn't been baked by the sun for as long they probably had significantly more water than they have today. And these wetter asteroids when they get sent in on a collision course with the planet earth Duta all the gravitational interactions that were going on in the early solar system, they would have brought that not yet burnt off water to our world to make our oceans. And I love that idea that guess ten years ago when we first I brought up this topic, I think we've done a whole episode just on where the water came from. Yes, and it was still a bit of an unknown by in there was this idea that the water is just kind of there in the solar nebula and the earth to sort of picked it up. There is the idea that could have come from. Comet could have come from asteroids could have come from capable objects, but now we've checked, we've gone and analyzed asteroids close. We've gone analyzed comets up. Close a spacecraft has been to Pluto and checked it as well. And now we've found the recipe that matches the fingerprint of water. Well, close, we've found the recipe that doesn't, Matt. We know comets don't match, but since asteroids today are generally dry, we can't measure what their hydrogen to deterioration heavy-water to regular water ratio was in the early solar system. And in fact, we haven't been able to sample the water on series yet. So what we actually know is it doesn't come from pra belt comments and it doesn't come from or cloud comets, and all models suggest the earth would have been baked, and that leaves. Asteroids now we could still be wrong on the baking part. There are a few theories out there that the water has risen up from the internal mantle of the planet, but there's also all of these awesome papers pointing instead to asteroids of being the origins of our oceans. That's awesome. What's next? Well, we are continuing to learn that the distinction between comments and asteroids is fuzzy, right? We've found dead comets in the inner solar system that we miss took for asteroids and realize, no, no, they are actually just mostly melted comments that have this nasty layer of what looks like roadway sludge on the surface of the comet and so does comments masquerading as asteroids all good. We get that we've now found asteroids are at least an asteroid out in the Kuyper belt, which is not where asked reserve expected to be. So we have this mixing of locations where you occasionally get comments in the inner solar system. You occasionally get asteroids and the outer solar system. And as we look at more and more of both of these kinds of minor planets, what we find. And is there appears to be a continuum from the I m a rock. I have no volatile, these completely dry rocky things. Cool. And these I will melt if he put me in the sunshine, I see objects and this continuum shows us that at a certain level, it's useful for us to distinguish comets which grow commas and have tails in the inner solar system from asteroids, which are mostly just hanging out waiting to impact us and kill dinosaurs. Again, this time the dinosaurs might be called humans. So it's a useful distinction. But what we need to recognize is these are just the extremes of a continuum where there are objects in the middle. It's just most tend to be at one end or the other. And it's really just if you get too close to the sun, you're gonna have your volatile 's blown away by the intense solar radiation. Nation in. That's why we have that ice line. That was why dawn was such a fascinating mission. It was going to one object on one side of the frost lines, no line which which term it is in the solar system and then another that was on the other side of it to see what is one that was too close to the sun to be able to hang onto its volatile. What was one that was too far to lose them and was able to stay fairly frozen. One sort of minor update is that we've found asteroids with moons. Yes and rings, yes. So like that was unexpected. So we had one asteroid with a moon before, but now we have several were also finding increasing numbers of Kuyper, belt objects with moons. And so it turns out that gravity dislikes to hold everything together and even little tiny rocks will sometimes by which I mean things smaller than a house, but not a lot smaller than a house. Can find themselves gravitationally bound to bicker objects. Yeah, told many of the capability which will talk about an second have been found with moons of varying sizes, which is sort of an astonishing piece of science, even be able to find these heiress has a moon, right? And it's really far away. So let's talk a bit about than some of the. Did you have any more amazing updates in the asteroid territory? You wanna move to comments next and then to capable objects, we can range yet. So I mean when it comes to asteroids for just finding the more and more places, we're realizing that the ones that aren't metallic, which is most of them are rubble piles that appears covered in boulders and that the biggest of them are actually big enough to have fancy pants geology, such that you actually have differentiation of the substances and geological processes taking place at the surface. Let me just stop you. One second. I mean, you talk about these sort of this idea of these rubble piles. Select the traditional artwork of an asteroid is this ball of rock with maybe some craters on it, but it is clearly space potato. But is that the case now or is it more that it is just like a bunch of loose rock and material that's happened to come together under its shared gravity. It's looking more and more like it may not always be rubble pile, but that it is often multiple objects that once we're one big object got split apart by something horrible happening. And then just kinda Rican Geel and gravity is now holding these multiple objects loosely together, and this is kinda cool, and perhaps we need to change our analogy from potatoes to I don't know about you, but I periodically plant bulbs in my yard in a few years later, these bulbs or like a cluster of ten bulbs. 'cause I've neglected them. And so you pull out one tulip and you find it rather be ten tulips just as those flour bolts are all held together with roots and dirt, but you can shake him apart and then end up with ten different flowers. These asteroids are variety of different objects held together through structual binding the same way. Any rock is held together and you end up with multiple of these rocks tied together through dirt between them and the gravitational pull of these different parts towards one another. And fortunately there's going to be room for us to have another episode exactly like this in about ten more years, I hope, yeah. Nassau's working on a mission to send a spacecraft to a metal asteroid asteroid psyche, which they might be the remnant core of planet Tessema and all that's left is this nickel iron chunk of metal out in. Space space trapped is gonna visit, which is going to be completely fascinating and completely different from places like series in Vesta of all the missions out there that are in the works right now. That's one of the ones that are most excited about, and we can't forget Cyrus racks which because it's in space is no longer dead to make should do an update on that spacecraft at some point, let's get sample then. Yeah, so it's going to get Debenham do in way less than ten years. So we'll hopefully have updates in the next year or two or multiple, and we saw launch, we saw it launch, you and I got to be there face to face. So yeah, lots of new science. And then once l. s. t. is up and running. It's going to be one of its primary missions is to find all the things that might try and kill us, which is a good thing for a telescope to do this episode of strana me cast is sponsored by molecule for seventy five dollars.

Everybody gathered around grab a chair, grab a beer. Let's talk some true crime. Lee, I learned that Andrew was missing on June the twenty six. Last year we were shocked. We've spent the last seven months putting up posters searching for him with his friends with his co workers and even complete strangers who cared enough to help find him through this. We have come to know Andrew, even better. He was well known in his community. He was a hard worker and he was loved by all. We look for him in the heat in the rain and in the snow, December nine was the last day that Karen, I searched for him. It was snowing yesterday morning. I received a call from detective. Dave Dickenson telling me that they made an arrest. I was in shock. I'll I remember saying, oh my God. Oh my God. I asked only one question. Did they find his body. The answer is no. I would like to thank engine friends and his co workers for keeping his name in media and the media for keeping his face in the public eye and the police for older hard work. I mean, you always have hope that, you know he's going to be found, you know, alive somewhere because there's medical issues, there's things that can happen. I mean you, that's the hard part would someone's missing his, you live with hope and you live with despair like you hope that they're going to be found, but you despair that they'll never be and you know, at least now there's a conclusion to end your story.
