"Do they need to take a breather here and get some rest and recover. And then go after it, what do you think has attributed to their slide recently? I think health is definitely a big part of the time. But you know, in taking the Craig rule the approach of being rather direct about it. There's two things there one. The andrew. Shifted the lines up for Rian in a big way. Remember, the blues won the Olympic Games with David baron. Audible item. Okay. So he's injury. He does not bloom as large in terms of terms of the current state of the team isn't so yeah, the Schenn is there to date. You've had a little bump in the road with Rhianna Riley. And holy smokes. That was probably expected at some point in time, and I'm not sending this on him. And I'm just saying that he cares this team for so doggone long that leads to this. There's not enough other guy stepping up, and that's the bottom line here. You know, if you don't have any of the young guys stepping up with any level of production. And then you don't have some of the veteran guys stepping up. It did not work with shorts on that top line for whatever reason. You're you're not getting it up consistent production out of you know, that second line of power play in times of need while it has been okay of a little bit of late the last couple of games, you know, struggled a little bit. And sometimes when you're depleted you've got to take advantage of the special teams has done penalty. Kill. I think it's been it's been really good of late. They had gone five or six games giving up a goal, but then and fair unfair guys. This is the reality of it. You've got in that last game, you know, and even over the last two teams Robby Fabbri playing in the top six role lasted two games than crepe or ruby Sadam as a healthy scratch, and they sat Robby Fabbri is a healthy scratch to call up. Sammy blamed for Sammy play on the fourth line. Doc Sanford getting a lot of good minutes. Not getting any kind of production as getting knocked off the puck losing puck battles. You know, the pets offense. Robert thomas. Yes. Annoys eighteen years old, but you are playing in the National Hockey League. They gotta find some level of production from him. I don't know. If you try something like moving him to center. Those are the kind of thing story several games without a third of getting a shot on goal. You know, Pat, maroon still stuck on four goals. Those are the kinds of things have going on here. And so. A little bit of everything. That's the reality of the news the outside of a rallying Seko's offense in the last few game straight up just not getting enough production from the other guys to be successful. Chris Kerber with this for another moment blues kickoff, a three-game, California. Swing in Anaheim tomorrow. I'm wondering curves because Doug Armstrong answered this question for Mike on Sunday in what ways have you seen and even outside of systems. And I know we've talked about this. But in what ways have you seen Craig ba-, ruby have an influence in effect on this team since he took over in some some tough circumstances to where they are. Now. He's just. He he's just really direct and demanding. And this is the way you're gonna play or you're not going to see the ice time and Robert Souso talked about it yesterday in practice. I didn't sat with Robert when the microphones Roth. Instead of don't want to talk more about this accountability begging needs today, your senior from guys on the bench, you know, talking. And he goes, it's a veteran proof that we have done players you. Meaning the veteran corps is is the leader said a veteran group, but they've got to get the young guys going with them as well. And so I mean that that to me is I think where where it really has mattered..

"What it responds for David baron, a healthy scratch for the first time this season comes out in this hockey game tonight plays nineteen minutes. He has two or four shots on goal. He scores two goals. And he was one hundred percent on the face off circle. Look at power play time it five on five time. He was on the ice towards the end of that period to kill the six on five David Perron. I thought had the perfect response to being scratched the other night, and then jumping into a line where Jaden Schwartz and Brayden Schenn created pretty much all of the offense tonight. I mean that line themselves at seven shots on goal tonight. Seven shots on goal for those three players was incredible. Then go beyond that rhino Riley at six shots on goal himself. So we talked about it after the loss of the Vancouver Canucks. How they had to find a way to get response from their leaders and jump into play create offense. And I thought they did. That this evening. And then you look at the power play. You know, the widow for three but again they fought through that adversity. You didn't score yet one shot on goal with four minute power play in the early portion of the first period, but they fought through it. And I thought the blues a outstanding game now there were some questionable moments. There were some takeaways that you have to build off of and move forward, but still it's a huge response. But the blues need to find a way to respond to their response on Friday against the Colorado Avalanche still to come. The blues postgame show me Mark scores has some reaction from the blues locker, but we'll look ahead for the rest of the week blues have two more home games before they head out onto the.

"The scoring for the coyotes in the first is the blues took over seven minutes worth of penalty time in period, number one. Just about three minutes into the third period. I'm sorry. Two minutes and fifteen seconds into the third period. Kyrie's ice the pocket Adrian hill. Just absolutely robbed. David baron. Incredible say there is probably the best scoring chance to Saint Louis blues. It had all night, and it just comes from. Brayden Schenn driving the net. David got the puck up the left wall. He advanced to the offensive zone put spaces created through the middle because number ten going in that very hard. The products at great play back in nice little chip is a great little shop. I tell you what he's been on top of his game to for a young player in this league. He does not look shaking looks very poised back there. No icing on that. Clearing attempt comes now along the near wing or throws a big hit a Derek step on. And here's Pat maroon on the plate ablaze. He'll clear the zone. Too far for Bosak. And those really goes to get the quick transition for the coyotes step on will dump it in bold Easter after it for the blues down into the corner Easter has it coming up along the way and Pat maroon backhands to the neutral zone for Ryan Riley all Riley have the assist on Atanas goal at bowl miester. That's the only goal of the game for the blues. Three minutes into the third period of play lose get the puck to Tarasenko. Couldn't catch the pass on his back in it to the front of the net comes back. Great recovery. Tarasenko in front with Thomas, and that one's turned away by the coyotes icing is going to get waived golfers. It slowdown before the goal line. Loser. Back.

"First of all you're going to be spending so much time trying to get your exposure right and getting it pointed right you're going to miss out on the experience and you may end up messing up anyway so my advice is and the scientists in eighteen seventy would admit to each other how they so wished they didn't have to actually work with the equipment during the eclipse because they would rather just so cup the the beauty of it so so my advice certainly the first time eclipse chasers is just enjoy it it they're going to be plenty of people with fancy equipment including at nasa who are going to have spectacular pictures of the eclipse in put them up online take advantage of take advantage of what they're doing and just enjoy the show sounds good sounds good great well i'm looking forward to it and i know you are said now the only thing left us to hope for clear skies right i hope we're going to have for the first time ever clear skies from coast to coast and at least i'm guessing that would be the first time ever but certainly a rare event and from oregon to south carolina i hope it'll just be perfect perfect guys like wise likewise david thank you so much for joining me today's a pleasure talking with the christy it was my pleasure and i hope that anyone who doesn't yet have plans to go see the eclipse and thinks it's too late i would say it's never too late until it's over and if there were ever something that was worth.

"Down but i thought it was really interesting that that they wanted to go up on pikes peak and i was wondering if you could just talk about that a little bit and why being on a high point might be interesting during an eclipse yes so cleveland abbe is sort of an important secondary character in my book and i i he his experience on pikes peak is probably the most dramatic tale of all of them because as you say he you know here he climbed up over fourteen thousand feet was enduring snowstorms in july and truly lifethreatening altitude sickness spending a week up there to observe the eclipse and there were several reasons they wanted to be up there i mean part of it was just to see the one getting back to the question of the solar corona which again today we know is the sun's out our atmosphere it was such a puzzlement back then i mean there were various theories that in fact there was one theory that the solar corona was not part of the sun it actually was the moon's atmosphere that you would only see when it was backlit by the sun during total eclipse there were other theories that maybe it didn't really exist at all it was just some kind of optical losin that had to do with the way light was being bent through the earth's atmosphere so by going up pikes peak and looking through less atmosphere one thing the cleveland abbe wanted to see was whether the solar coronal looked different at outs toot and maybe would help solve this problem of these to what extent it's a result of the way light behaves in our atmosphere another one of the scientists up there samuel langley was particularly interested he was interested in studying solar radiation and had a background in wanting to set up some high altitude observatories and this is something i don't actually get into the book but he even after eighteen seventy eight he continued to climb mountains to see what benefit there would be from doing astronomy at a higher elevation but one of the things that i find most interesting about seeing the eclipse from up there which in fact is has influenced my clips plans for august.

"Which was to find the planet vulcan so in hindsight that that was a big big mistake he made but at the time it looked like great success edison right after the eclipse it's interesting because i would say he was seemed to be pretty successful but in the end he was successful for for not the region not for the reasons people thought at the time so so the hit what he was trying to show of course was his the value of his similar and his immature worked in a sense it found heat in the sun's corona honestly the result it gave was not very easy to interpret because edison had the device set to too sensitively and basically as soon as he pointed it at the solar corona the needle flew off the scale so he found heat but he had no way to say how much he found so so in fact the newspapers were a little confused about whether he was successful or not any kind of was both but the but the similar itself looked like it had a great future and right after the equips edison came up with this idea of using it to attaching it to a telescope at night and using it to scan the heavens for stars that were too dim to see but could be detected by the heat they gave off which affectively is infrared astronomy so he had this idea for infrared astronomy now the zimmer itself was not a very useful device it turned out quite soon after the eclipse when other people try to use it that it just it was a very clunky device it did not give reproducible results it we would respond heat very quickly but wouldn't but then when he was taken away the needle wouldn't go back very fast so other devices came along better so that similar was clearly not a great success right and it's kind of interesting to me because in a way it's sort of like he succeeded at this whole thing of him wanting to be a scientist rather than an inventor i mean here's an example of like the.

"Advocate for women in science and women's higher education at a time when obviously it was exceedingly hard for women to get anywhere in the sciences and and women's higher education itself was was actually something that was just barely getting off the ground so so but when i learned what she didn't eat seventy eight i just immediately knew she would have to be another main character in my book because here it is eighteen seventy eight time when travel to the american west was not easy when the west was still wild when women were not treated equally by any stretch of the imagination and she took it about herself to put together an all female clips expedition to denver without any help from the us government in essence to chris show the american public that women should be taken seriously scientists yeah i kind of think of someone who wasn't willing to take no for an answer right like she was just like you're not going to help me that's not gonna stop me and it was sort of seems significant to me too that she really ios part of this movement to really push forward the science whether or not they you know she was getting any support from the government getting support from her college i mean she did have this appointment at vassar she was paid less than men right although it's notable you talk about how she had beaten out some fairly prominent other male astronomers for the job so she did have a measure of respect right she did and she has a point out there were prominent scientists who who kind of meant toward her one of them was joseph henry who was the the first secretary of the smithsonian prominent physicist and really a very important man in establishing the kind of scientific infrastructure for america and he he clearly liked mariah mitchell very much i actually mentioned at one point in the book that win the national academy of sciences was meeting.

"In our own backyard and then congress promptly declined to fund it after the newspapers stepped in and started chiding congress for being so shortsighted did did congress come up with the eight thousand dollars yeah and kind of at the last minute right yep solutely they didn't have much time to put the expedition's together they had sort of decided to kind of press ahead with you know with the idea that they weren't going to get the money and then it came through but but i want to note here that not everyone was able to get some of this funding and here i wanna talk about mariah mitchell she's someone who just seemed like such a great mentor to people here maybe maybe we'll take a step back here tell me a little bit about mariah and how did you find out about her will so so mariah mitchell was the most wellknown female scientists in america in the nineteenth century although of course she is not by far from a household name today i have to say before i started work on the book i heard her name but i couldn't told you anything about her so she she she rose to prominence in eighteen forty seven when she was actually professionally she was a librarian on the island of nantucket but she studied the stars at night her father had been amateur astronomer and she became an avid amateur astronomer and she discovered a comet in eighteen forty seven and for that she was the first person to see it anywhere and she received a gold medal from the king of denmark and that became known as miss mitchell's comet and she became quite prominent and she actually ended up getting a paying job as an astronomer she was a computer her job was to to compute the orbit of venus for the navy's nautical almanac which was used by navigators and then when vassar college was founded in the eighteen sixties she was hired as a professor of astronomy and she was understandably not just a scientist she was a staunch.

"Was he was in fact known as a planet hunter because he was very good at finding asteroids and back then asteroids were considered planets they were called minor planets but they got names just like the major planets and finding them was a very big deal and james craig watson had a knack for searching the heavens and being able to identify among a sea of stars something that was out of place and actually was moving extraordinarily slowly across the sky which was an asteroid so james craig watson as a planet hunter was he came west to wyoming eighteen seventy eight looking for a planet and that planet as you say base to as you and your your listeners who've read tomlinson's book no was this hypothetical planet vulcan which there was good reason to believe existed between mercury and the sun even though no one had ever reliably seen it and james craig watson figured that about the only time you could get a really good view of bulkin would be during a total solar eclipse when the moon covered the bright surface of the sun and you could look at right around the right near the sun in the sky and spot a planet and he not only had presumably the skill to find it he had the ego to be convinced that he would find it and so he's a have to say of the main characters in my book he's the one i like the least as a human being he was kind of a jerk he did not treat his wife very well that's for sure but he was a fascinating man and and so he was definitely one of the people i knew i had to focus on telling the story in my book i'll absolutely he's such a great character and you know not likable one as you said but so fascinating to me too and then he actually becomes convinced during the eclipse that he has has seen vulcan which of course he didn't because you know as einstein.

"They were really important to science because astronomers would just starting to unravel the mysteries of the sun what is it made of what fuels it and there were certain studies they could do only during total solar eclipse which occurs on average once every eighteen months somewhere on the planet usually someplace very hard to get to last all of two or three minutes and so so astronomers were putting together these extensive expeditions off to india or africa to do their studies hope that clouds didn't show up and so i started look at these various clips to see well is there one of these classes that stands out and so i looked at the one in eighteen sixty eight that went over india and siam and there was one in eighteen seventy that went over the mediterranean but when i came to eighteen seventy eight when i found out that in eighteen seventy eight total solar eclipse crossed the american west i mean the the wild west this was the american west still being settled and attracted such attention from american scientists and came at a time when america was just trying to prove itself as a scientific power i thought i thought this has got to be it and then i started looking into who came out to the west to observe the eclipse so let's start with james craig watson and it's interesting that he was in this book we just did recently for another episode of sparks tom levinson's wonderful book the hunt for volkan which also involve it is a wonderful book yet in thomas of friend yes yeah yes a fantastic story but it's interesting you're you're sort of looking at it from a different angle and the two very different but tell me a little bit about about watson and why he was so interested in the eclipse right so so james craig watson was the professor of astronomy at the university of michigan and a very prominent man in his day because he.
