What's the Largest Lake in the World?
"Siberia's Lake Cal is not your average. Lake. At forty, nine miles wide by three hundred and ninety, five miles long that seventy, nine by six, hundred and thirty, five kilometers. It's the world's largest freshwater lake and with history that dates back twenty, five, million years it's also Earth's oldest. But size and age aren't the only things that make this. Lake. Special. Lake by cow is also home to more than three thousand, seven, hundred different species, many of which are only found in the Baikal region. That's why by cows often considered the Galapagos of Russia. No in case it's bio-diversity doesn't dazzle you here's another but Julia fact. Lake by cow has its own version of the Loch ness monster. Its name translates to water dragon master and it's described as a giant sturgeon with a prominent stout, an armored plating along the back. The monsters history goes back centuries with ancient carvings depicting this terrifying creature. Interest peaked we thought. So here's a starter guide to this ancient beautiful and mysterious late, which is by the way a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Lake Baikal is located in southern Russia near the border of Mongolia, its depth of five thousand, three, hundred feet about one thousand, six, hundred meters makes it the world's deepest lake about five hundred feet or two hundred meters it's also famous for its clarity of water and ice. When the lake is frozen, you can see dozens of meters or hundreds of feet down. And as we said at the top, it's also the world's largest lake that size twelve, thousand, two, hundred, square miles, or thirty one, thousand, six, hundred square kilometers makes it comparable in volume to the entire Amazon Basin? A first scale? It reportedly takes about three hundred and thirty years for single water molecule to flow from inlet to inlet. So. How did like by cow get so massive About twenty, five, million ago lake by CAL formed through fractures and shifting within Earth's crust. It wasn't Lake Baikal as we know it. Now, though experts believe it was a series of lakes similar to the Great Lakes in the United States while scientists aren't positive how lake by CAL went for many lakes to the behemoth. It is today they do have theories. It could have been sinking earth erosion earthquakes or increased water from melting glaciers although it's likely a mix of these factors and more. That unifying change took place in the pleasing epoch about five point three to two point five million years ago. But this lake isn't finished growing. It's expanding at a rate of about point seven inches to centimeters every year at the same speed at which Africa in South America are drifting apart. At this speed, some scientists believe lake by Baikal is actually an ocean in the making. The lake boasts twenty-seven islands, the largest of which spans two, hundred, eighty square miles or seven, hundred, twenty, five square kilometers and has its own lake mountains and the population of fifteen hundred residents. The locals connected to power van underwater cable in two, thousand and five, and we're connected to the Internet shortly after. Some Call Lake by Cao, the Galapagos of Russia not only because it has an impressive array of those nearly four thousand species but also because eighty percent of those animals are found nowhere else. One reason for this unique biodiversity is the lakes. Array of hydrothermal vents which are commonly found in oceans but lake by cow is the only freshwater lake known to have them. Cold water from the lake enters cracks in the Earth's crust through these hydrothermal vents. When the water reaches magma, it heats up, then returns resurfacing with minerals and heat. These rich minerals are probably the reason some of the lakes most unusual species were able to develop including several unique fish and the nerpa seal species, which is the only exclusively freshwater seal species in the world and its evolution is mysterious and some scientists believe it arrived by a prehistoric river from the Arctic But beyond seals fish other common animals found in the forests and mountains surrounding Lake Baikal include. Elk. Reindeer links wild-boar, and of course, the lakes frequently reported water dragon master. And this ancient lake has another air of mystery about it. UFO sightings. Many locals have reported strange lights and alien spacecraft throughout the years and several Soviet era documents mention ufo instance in sightings around Earth's largest lake. However for all of its natural wonder, amazing wildlife end stranger sides for lake cows one hundred, thousand permanent residents it's simply home. Made, occupations are forestry agriculture, fisheries, hunting, and tourism though that's currently on hold due to covid nineteen. Here's hoping they opened back up soon.
India and Bangladesh: Health and environmental risks grow, following deadly cyclone
"A buffalo cyclone has hit eastern India in Bangladesh. Officials have said that it was one of the most ferocious cyclones ever seen what was the intensity of the cyclone arm. This song which cost to feed on one fifty five one five kilometer gusting up to one eighty five kilometers up as we want to Phoenix wreak havoc in the state of West Bengal and extensive damages uploading seven to stick of a single imputing cutout. The Joy I to and also accompanied by dogs need went up to four or five macos high We do not have much information on the how much land area had been inundated. You home box is the expected dot. There has been heavy damages under streets due to the inundation is actually was passed been ravaged by just be less That is expensive damage to the SPA. What communication and have enough waterlogging has several places and the Distrigas ministrations working in. Awadh putting manner the situation. So what is the current situation in these areas Do you have any estimates of the scale of destruction yet how that people people have lost lives in takeovers has been Luckily the damage has been Much less In this state of forty thousand every compared was being gone.

That only got dominant overthink gone. Have undertaken massive evacuation more than one point five. Let people were always south and neo five. Let deeper in England so because of this the last that question probably the number of deaths has been quite slow as of now but the possibility that the figure might increase because the government has not yet competed plans and come up with just decided not to actively go there could be an increase in the number of as well in this state over being on the administration is working on a what manner in the affected.

The cyclone moved towards Bangladesh. So what's the situation Dave? After the line in Bengal cyclone has now been fishing and presently dish. It is very likely to continue to move not not as North eastwards and we can all In Bangladeshi past not brought much damage can it has caused that There has been have Beata or information available from the media on damage to houses and Bleaching of embankments but the fact has not been ready coveting in Bangladesh so these are cyclone prone areas and we witness landscape destruction in the past as well.

Could Sonic the Hedgehog Survive His Own Speeds?
"When it comes to fictional animals capable of breaking the sound barrier. There's no beating sonic the hedgehog. But would he be able to survive his own? Super Swiftness Sonics. The star of the long running video game franchise and now a movie wherein he spins and rolls at breakneck speeds and order to defeat the evil Dr Robotic so how fast does on it go as his name implies. He reaches sonic speeds meeting that he can travel as fast as a sound wave through. Earth's atmosphere which is roughly seven hundred sixty seven miles per hour or one thousand two hundred and thirty five kilometers per hour depending on air temperature. He also goes supersonic under the right circumstances. So it's probably safe to assume that he exceeds the speed of sound as well. That's incredibly fast. Most hedgehogs do get around their extremely active in the wild and often runs several miles each night. Which are regular hedgehog business hours but sonic speeds are much faster? Consider that the world's fastest or the Peregrine Falcon only reaches a maximum speed of about two hundred miles per hour or three hundred and twenty kilometers. I sustained speeds. The Cheetah is sonics closest rival at a mere seventy miles per hour or one hundred and ten kilometers. A Sonics smokes them both. So could sonnet realistically hindle supersonic speeds. Let's think about it. Humans routinely break the sound barrier in supersonic aircraft. Aboard the now discontinued Concorde. Passengers could even enjoy an inflight meal but this is all within the artificial confines of an airplane. All Sonic has his own body his body would have to be incredibly strong endurable to achieve and survive the wear and tear of supersonic speeds even if he's rolling through smooth tubes and shoots half the time at those speeds small particles of dust and even the air itself could cause serious damage as author James Cavaliers points out in the physics of superheroes a super fast organism like the flash would need super healing abilities to rapidly recover from the physical damage of each acceleration to say nothing of smashing into things. The same goes for Sonic. But then again if we're to assume that sonic species evolved to reach such high speeds. He must be sturdy enough to survive it at least in the short term so perhaps he does have this sort of enhanced healing speeds necessary to keep all his bones and ligaments from snapping as pointed out by Duke. University's Patek labs various. Animals are capable of incredible speeds when it comes to parts of their anatomy such as the mantis shrimps. Three Millisecond Club strikes. There's even a hypothesis that prehistoric sauropods could've whipped their tails at sonic speed. Like a bull whip but that remains rather controversial and maybe we're being too hard on sonic. He's a blue hedgehog that chases coins across the pinball landscape and in later games achieves faster than light travel plus. He's still going strong after almost

Undersea Fiber-Optic Cables Make Superb Seismic Network
"I'm the seat telecom cables could be used as an earthquake early warning system according to a new study from California scientist turned an underwater fiber optic network in Monterey Bay into a seismic sensor which identified a trauma one of the report's co authors Craig door explain how they did it when you send pulses down a fiber optic cable jurors impurities in the cable and date because reflections and the reflections are affected by high pressure so you can filter and analyze these reflections so that you can see what the pressure is at any given spot along the cable and as an earthquake occurs it's a way of moving through the earth and that pressure changes and you can see that pressure change on the fiber optic backscatter the light that is reflected back into the machine so what would it take to translate what you've done here to some kind of system around the world where you could monitor for earthquakes there was a a recorded earthquake that happened near Monterey Bay and we witness that moves through the bay as the pressure wave was impinged upon the cable and could this be a game changer and if so how seismometers especially be accurate ones are fairly expensive and they are really just point sources so if you've got a size monitor on a mountain top or on kill away in Hawaii it's looking it's what what's happening locally where is by using this distributed acoustic sensing technique they can look at a huge section I think in this case we're looking at twenty five kilometers of cable see what you create is is not just a single point sensor but a twenty five kilometer long sensor that has a resolution in the range of meters so I think it's very possible to start using some of this cable as earthquake detectors but in theory while these cables as sending and what internet signals around the well they could be looking out for us quite absolutely absolutely yeah it's it's it's pretty phenomenal technology and getting more and more robust all the
The Pilgrim Trails of Italy
"Hiking for a week or a month on a historic pilgrimage? Trail in Europe has become a popular Peter way for people from all over the world to rejuvenate themselves. It's gotten so that Spain's popular community. Santiago is even starting to feel a little crowded sometimes times. If you'd prefer a quiet or pilgrim route. Italy may have the answer. Sandy Brown and errands Italia have covered hundreds of miles on the historic walking trails of of Italy. And they WANNA help you give it a try. They've recently helped to found an organization called American pilgrims to Italy. And it's designed to help people like you would meet a plan. Pilgrimage hike in Italy in Sandy has written a detailed guide to tracking the way of Saint Francis from Florence to Assisi and then to Rome there joining us now on travel with Rick. Steves Steph's to recommend trails. That Saint Francis may have himself tracked Erin and thanks for joining us. Thanks for having US happiness. So Europe has these these venerable hikes. That are really long and it has these pilgrimage trails. That really have a a a little bit of a different meaning Aaron. What's the difference between just a long multiday hike in Europe that can be famous and established and a pilgrimage? Well to me pilgrimage signifies. This is a long walk to place of spiritual meaning and so to me. The first one that I ever did was the way of Saint Francis and so oh walking along pads in stopping in towns where he had been in there were stories about him had more of a spiritual context to it than just trekking. The camino goes to the supposed tomb of Saint James Ferried in Santiago de Compostela. Yes that would be the goal. People in the Middle Ages walked from Paris all the way to that northwest corner of Spain with that goal in mind Martin. Luther hiked from way up in Germany all the way to Rome. He was told to hike down there. It was kind of personal. What would you call it Sandy? A personal ordeal or a personal. I think you could say a pilgrimage also committed jar and then when he got to Rome he walked up the steps of this Accra scholar on his knees and had quite an experience. Enrollment was life changing for him so life changing that started the reformation. He did a lot of thinking and he got to Rome. I understand when when he got up to the top of those depths he kind of goes. This is all make sense exactly. It's a time when you think about these things. Isn't it now when we think about Italy. You guys are both specializing in Poke Mitch. Trails in Italy Saint Francis would be the the star of these things Send you wasn't St Francis relate to these pilgrimage trails well the VA Francesco Chess. Go the way of Saint. Francis is a modern connecting of the various different sites from Saint Francis Time and so for instance when he had a big experience the stigma experience at Santiago de la Berna. That's connected then with Google where he spoke with wolf and see see where he was born and had his last days. Okay so this is a modern. Lacing together of these stops people who want to get into whether they want to hike an excuse for hiker to actually get into the the whole life in the teaching of Saint Francis they would do this. Walk the name of your book is tracking the way of Saint Francis Triumph floors to CD-ROM. So that's what that would be. And then we hear about the FRANCI. JANA the via French ejecta is an historic walk. And so it's a little different. From the way of Saint Francis in terms of it was put together in the ancient world or in in the Middle Ages actually because there was a priest by the name of Cyrillic that was elevated to the episcopacy and he was supposed to appear in Rome to receive his Palim. which is the symbol of his office and so he walked with a retinue from Canterbury across France Switzerland down through Italy and arrived in Rome and then instructed his secretary to take notes of the way back and those notes were all contained at the Cathedral and Canterbury where they sat for thousand and years and then thousand years later people said well what is this and they put together the Modern Day via French agenda following that same modern modern day Revisit of this now does that relate to canterbury tales at all. It doesn't away because well. In case of Canterbury Tales they were ending at Canterbury Burri and the case of this. They were starting at Cantor. Okay now would. Saint Francis have actually walked on that trail on the difference. You know although it's very possible possible that he walked portions of it in order to get up to the community Santiago Kaz. He did walk. The community. Santiago did only twelve fourteen but the a piece of the way of Saint Francis that's historic that he was summoned to Rome by Pope innocent the third and he walked from. CCD Rome and ended up at the Saint. John Lateran Church. So that's one of the stops on the way of Saint Francis and it follows roughly his okay if you were so inclined you could leave a C. C. N. B. Meditating on in Saint Francis and his teaching and his experience all the way to Rome. That's actually the goal right and then the finishing point would be Saint Peter's or exactly what well we stop at Saint John Lateran But we end up at Saint Peter's then in my book I include the Pilgrimage Churches of Rome. Yeah as an option at the end because there are seven urban historic pilgrim churches. And it's about a twenty five kilometer walk and you hit. All seven of this. Church is quite an interesting walk in modern day Rome but touching on medieval medieval and ancient sites. Sandy Brown is the author of the CICERO trekking guide to the way of Saint Francis and Errands Italia heads and organization that prepares the American travelers to explore the pilgrimage trails of Italy. We have links to their websites with this week. Show at Rick Steves Dot com slash radio so sandy. When you come to Piazza del Popolo I I try to think of it? Like a pilgrim five hundred years ago. Yeah what do you think when you come to Piazza. No Popolo one thing is before you get there you would have crossed the Ponti Mill View. And that's a wonderful wonderful historic place because that's where the vision of Constantine was where the cost went back in three twelve or three ten or something. Exactly yes then and you follow the road in to Piazza del Popolo. And of course would you would say and what I would say. I is go into the Santa Maria Church and look at the car of Agios right right so that's a piece that you have to do and then we would want people to walk along the ancient streets that had toward the Vatican so so there's the street where they made the beads that go on the rosaries uh-huh and that's a street that we'd want people to go and sort of skirts along the top of the You you know a couple of other. Like Piazza NAVONA. Right on the way to Saint Peter's and if you're a pilgrim you would know that I go down this boulevard to that obelisk and then I looked to the left after nicey a dome and then I looked on there and I see a statue and you you would know how to navigate through the city by these long beautiful elegant streets that lead to great landmarks works. Yes and specially the pedestrian streets so by the time a pilgrim gets to Rome. They've walked maybe a hundred or a thousand or seventeen hundred kilometers commodores. So they're also looking for a bed and a cafe and Wanted to do the kind of walk. It'll get him in the most economical kind kind of way to their destination but then when they arrive in Saint Peter's there is a certificate that it can receive if they've walked at least one hundred kilometers. It's the equivalent on the Community Santiago. Is that Compostella. This is called the testimony. I'm okay and so that's a nice treat for us and I was going to ask you about this. I know when you go to community Santiago. You clicked this passport. Talk about the credential in the practical reason for that when you are a pilgrim in Italy heading to Rome so the credential or they called the credence Ya gala. It's of paper. That's like your passport. That's what differentiates you as a pilgrim from. Just anybody else traveling. So certain places. We'll give you discounts on your lodging. If you have your credential in basically every town you stop and you get a stamp along the way and then when you arrive at Your Final Destination Chan that sort of your proof that hey. I'm pretty awesome because I just did this. Really Amazing Walk and these are the stamps to show it in Rome. Is there actually a a regular place that you go and you can. There's there's somebody there and their job is to stamp this credential yes you go to the pilgrims office and I did not have to wait at all we went in. I was walking with with four friends and we arrived. We had to fill out a piece of paper and it was actually quite emotional thinking you know this is. My journey is officially Dinan. I'm filling out this paper showing where I started. And you get your final stamp and then you receive your like Sandy said your testimony them and then you have a souvenir for this gassing to remember and it's probably a beautiful moment

Searching For a Lost Maya City
"We have contributing correspondent lizzie wade and she went on a hunt for a lost city high lizzy hazara. Can you talk a little bit about your journey of course so we met up in a city called kami thanh in campus and then we drove about seven hours to part of the mexican guatemala border order. That's a little corner that we were staying at this eco lodge. We had guides from that eco lodge who took us into the reserve montessori so we went up i in a motorboat for a few hours when we set up a base camp but basically from there we were kayaking and hiking in the jungle and it was extraordinarily difficult. If there is no trails carved the guides would michetti through through the jungle but everything has fines. Everything is so different from each other. There's so much information and all the plants are so yeah heterogeneous and there's just like so much stuff around you that it's hard to even interpret individual things who is very easy to grab onto a tree that was covered in spines and not really even realize until your hand was also covered in spines they had to cut every out of the way every step i've been in some pretty remote places before but never a place where humans really hadn't been for for decades or potentially centuries and that was very very hard and it felt like the environment was just pushing us pushing pushing us out you know and making it impossible in the rivers were also completely covered in in brush and had to be the machete from the kayaks and late. It was really intense okay. Should i spoil it. Say whether or not you found missing city yeah i mean i think it's hard to talk about it. If we don't say what happened yes so spoilers. You did not find a long last jedi. Wha- what were you looking for. I went to chapas mexico wisdom archaeologist gal just who were looking for a city called sock belong which was the capital of the condone my there's two groups named <unk> condone one one exists today and one is pre columbian maya group when we were looking for this previous maya groups last capital sok-bom means the white jaguar and the lacandon built it basically to hide from spanish invaders which say successfully did for over over two hundred years. Wow what what's the timeline here and i guess i should ask. What century are we him. Yes so the spanish i come to mexico coach central mexico in the early fifteen twenties so to not mind which is now mexico city the aztec capital falls in fifteen twenty one and that's a pretty straightforward holmquest story aztecs were an empire the spanish also empire or wanted to be so they over that all that outland but when you get to the maya world. It's really really different because there's not really a centralized control. Every city is independent of each other and they're all in this elaborate web of allies and enemies. This finished can't come in conquer one city like <unk> or whatever and then everything passes is to them. They have to do it one at a time getting back to this missing city sock belong the lack unknown live there but they didn't always live there. They actually remove their city to this harder define location yeah though i condone lived on this island in lake miramar which is also a a were attacked by the spanish at least once. Maybe a couple of times. I can't quite remember and they had held out but they knew they weren't going to be able to do that forever. So preemptively the late fifteen hundreds they pack up move really deep into the jungle and built this other city called soccer mom but eventually cycle was taken by <hes> the spanish. Can you talk about how that happened by this point. It's the sixteen ninety s the english colonies in the u._s. Are firmly established at this point. I think harvard university has has been founded. This is very much the world we live in now most of the quote unquote conquest that are going on right now are not huge military invasions asians. It's more proselytizing so these two priests are like we have to convert the people of south <unk> devoted to the idea they hire these local maya ed guides who lead them around in circles for five months without them realizing it because the local mayor are so scared of sock belong like the people insect belong have been rating other my <hes> months and months go by of them just like walking around in circles and then finally they realized some things going on and they hired the leader of another local niagara and we don't really know what his motivation was but if you think of the condone being scary and potentially having attacked this town. This guy may have been like whatever ver- enough with this he takes a spanish. They're it's mostly diplomatic. They're not immediately killed. As previous spanish visitors were they convince serve a retinue of the lacombe leaders to come with them to sit in guatemala for more diplomacy basically but on the way they are on the way back almost all <unk> die get sick and die and it sort of clap says and there's not like a big battle this vantage descend on this town of a couple left one hundred thousand of their soldiers and their allied mike holders cycle. I'm gives really easily at that point and then it is is a spanish town for another fifteen twenty years and then everyone is relocated to closer to the pacific coast of water malla which was part of the the spanish colonial policy of it's called reducing might communities so murray by out of where they've always lived in make them live in his new communities where they easier easier control was surprises me then after all of those events is that the location of sack llamas not known yeah. No it surprised me too because it is done some spanish maps. I mean these are like seventeen hundred maps or not satellite abs- you know it was connected to the spanish world for a while but only only for pretty short time so they didn't really have a huge investment in the place when they move people out the jungle stays the jungle like there's not a huge amount of clear cutting so today the location of sucked plum is within this national park in mexico monsoon ways and it's considered an extremely extremely remote part of mexico. There are no trails no roads. Nobody's allowed to live there while you went with a group of archaeologists to try and visit this lost city what what made them think that they could find it and be what would they get out of finding it despite them existing for overlapping with the spanish colonial state for a couple of centuries. There's really no information about what it was like to live in sok-bom or any of the other independent my capitals that existed existed around this time sochua wasn't the only one was but it was the second to last two to be conquered. They wanna know who they were trading with. How connected they were to the outside world. How not connected they were headed they do this. How did they live in such isolation for so long so the reason they thought they could find it is or the method breath <unk>. They used was looking at the spanish documents from the time. After sokolow had been conquered. 'em spanish visitors would go and then they would go other places they would record their roots and how long it took them to travel to different landmarks lakes or rivers or another town's so you can construct a possible zabul arc of locations of the city and basically we were trying to get as close to that as possible so you have your starting point and then they ceo we traveled for seven days you know about how far they went in a circle exactly he's going to be on size herbal and not the other like you can make some inferences and they didn't record it in kilometers or anything that ban measure of distance we would use so you'd have to estimate how far they could walk in a day and it's quite fuzzy but it's a starting point you do have a description of what the spanish a how described cycle on when they arrived yeah it is about a hundred houses which primative adobe so they will not have survived until now there were three community buildings not quite temples but like city halls and those would have had stone foundations and that's what the archaeologists are interested in finding the region today is known for scarlet macaws the sort of iconic red parrots and apparently condone had semi domesticated them in every day at five p._m. They would fly out of the forest land on all the houses and the spanish. I thought that was amazing and so do i do feel like you were able to keep the same pace as the people who had traveled to suck palumbo for you know when you're looking at a previous trips yeah. It's hard to say i mean we weren't hearing oliver stuff. They would have been like did set up base camps. They probably would have been wearing stuff that was really tough to walk around and you know like lots of wool and potentially metal. This is not easy for them either. That was one of the major her things. I was thinking about in the jungle. I don't really care about the spanish confuses blake we i think we pay far too much attention to their experience in history because they're the ones who who got to write it but i was really taken aback by how similar are experience would have been there because of course a lot. Condone knew what they were doing and like we it ends so we we have we were much more similar to the spanish and i felt like if you have a city a few hundred people hiding out in the jungle against a globalizing belies ing empire like it's only a matter of time until they will be found and incorporated into that empire came away thinking that that really wasn't true at all. Oh it was so hard to do this that the conquest of cyclamen basically every other place in the americas was basically the historical accident and a fluke luke. The conquistadors had to rely on locals to help them find the city. Do you think that that's something that the archaeologists are gonna pursue while help was doc vital for the spanish and vital for y'all just now the ones sort of discovery quote unquote that they were able to make on this trip was the classic period read my it ruins which is a thousand years before sock bolom would have been founded but this town in the region knew about some ruins in this little patrick forest that they protect the reserve and they took the archaeologist they are in. It was really amazing. I mean i've seen a lot of unexcavated archeological sites in this was really special one and they never would have known it was there of the local people hadn't been willing to trust them and and tell them about it was tackle on the hard part is that nobody lives in monte. Sicily's there are people who go in there like their firefighters who might know the reserve. There are people who have lived there as refugees like from the guatemalan civil war are a lot of people took refuge there. There are people who know montezuma's ways a little bit better than average person in chapas but because has nobody lives in it. It's just so hard to find those people in it so hard to find the help that you really need to be able to do efficient archaeology. Let's say how far did you travel in all of this. I think we kayaked ninety kilometers in four days. This is a round trip so we went up river forty five kilometers that was already from the base camp. I think a lot of kayaking on in my life the walking was it was really shocking. How slow the walking. It was about a kilometer an hour which you know if i'm walking in a city i go ten minutes. You know the walking. I think it was like eight kilometers things hype it was it was it was not very long but it felt like we climbed mount everest. A lot of archaeology is don don with lighter these days using radar from planes to find hidden structures. Would that be helpful here in this area. It could potentially work. I think it it'd be really great to do it over months away. I know the archaeologist would love to do that to national geographic funded this huge light our survey of a very similar place in guatemala all and it revealed tens of thousands of of structures that archaeologists didn't know about the thing about lighter is that it's pretty expensive <hes> and it takes a lot of coordination and also when you do light. Are you still have to go out to the potential site and see it so it doesn't totally save you from the explorer our jungle adventure that we that we had one of these archaeologists going to do next. Are they going to go back. They are going to go back which i found a little bit mind boggling wing but they're really committed to exploring this area of chapas <unk> swiss and what stood was a give them some information about how how fast the spanish could travel like. Maybe it was a little slower than we thought. Maybe dot com is closer to these landmarks. If you have to go so slow a lot of the information on the satellite maps about the exact routes of the rivers turned out not to be totally right so it made making a more accurate map much easier and i think the most important thing it did probably was bringing these archaeologist in closer contact with the communities down there both the communities who who live in the towns and the guides themselves who know the reserve very well it takes a lot of work to to build a kind of trust you need to have people both agreed to show you what they know especially since archaeology in mexico as in so many places is often connected to the state and official narratives of off the country and potentially land expropriation and things like that people can be very wary of archaeologists for pretty good historical reasons yeah yea so you know you really have to spend a lot of time. They're showing them that you care about these places and you care about the current people's connection to those places in you're going to respect. That's

Let's put smart to work learn more at I._B._M.. Dot Com slash slash red hat welcome to brain stuff production of iheartradio. Hey rain stuff. Lauren Vogel bomb here. NASA has announced that it will launch a space probe called dragonfly on an ambitious mission to Saturn's Saturn's Moon Titan in which a robotic rotorcraft lander will fly around Titan's surface and touchdown in various places as part of its exploratory mission the dragonfly space probe will look for traces of chemical processes similar to the ones that led to life on earth in addition to gathering other information about the Moon's surface and atmosphere dragonfly will launch twenty twenty six and arrive at Titan which is eight hundred eighty six million miles. That's one point four billion kilometers from the Sun in Twenty thirty four once they're. The space probe which is about the size of the Space Agency's spirit and Opportunity Mars Rovers will turn on eight rotors and fly through Titan's dense hazy atmosphere which is about four times the density of Earth's and explore. It's still mysterious surface. A Titan is the biggest of Saturn's sixty two moons and a close second in moon size at our solar system after Jupiter's Moon Ganymede has radius of about sixteen hundred miles or twenty five hundred kilometers making it about fifty percent wider than Earth's moon but it's not just titan size is it is made it a longtime object to fascination scientists Titan is also the only moon in the solar system with much of an atmosphere and it's the only slot in the solar system besides earth that's known to have Liquid Rivers Lakes and seas on its surface though the latter are made up of liquid hydrocarbons such as methane and ethane titans also believed to have an underground ocean of water deep beneath its icy surface that could possibly have harboured some form of life or may still contain it. The titans surface is brutally cold like. Minus two hundred ninety degrees Fahrenheit or one hundred and seventy degrees Celsius cold but conditions potential underground ocean are unknown titans thick atmosphere is about ninety five percent nitrogen with the rest mostly composed of methane the creates a thick orange colored haze hangs over the moon's surface making it difficult to observe from Earth much of what we do know comes from the European Space Agency's how Hon spacecraft which landed on Titan and transmitted data for seventy two minutes in two thousand five and from NASA's Cassini probe which did multiple fly bys of Titan between two thousand five in two thousand seventeen. How huns was actually attached to Cassini for these seven year trip to Titans vicinity scientists are particularly excited about dragonflies ability to fly rather than crawl crawl along the ground unlike Mars where NASA also plans to test a small robotic helicopter with large high speed blades twenty twenty titans atmosphere's thick enough to enable dragonfly to attain lift with relatively small Reuters and carry a bigger payload over longer distances? Mrs Than the experimental copter being sent to Mars. It's expected to cover more than one hundred miles or one hundred seventy five kilometers during its nearly three year mission on Titan it will fly in short hops up to five minutes at a time we spoke by email with Jason some sort of bomb a research scientist in the Department of Earth Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and one of dragonflies co investigators he explained flight allows us to move the lander much greater distances in a short period of time than a traditional rover allowing us to more efficiently explore Titan. We also spoke by email with Kurt Neiber new frontiers program scientist for NASA. He said the dragonflies design is fundamentally different from the Mars helicopter quote not just because the atmosphere of Titan on Mars are so different but because they are different vehicles the Mars helicopter is a short lived technology demonstration with no science payload dragonfly is a self contained space craft designed to pursue science mission with high autonomy. It's like comparing a self driving car in electric. Electric Scooter both have wheels but they have very different purposes and therefore very different designs. The researchers working on dragonfly are excited about the opportunity to investigate the giant moons many mysteries Neiber said I'm looking forward to dragonfly finally giving US detailed answers about the surface of Titan at the small scale not just its composition but also its geology telling us about the complex organic materials present there and how they interact and also giving us a good look at surface features like dunes and the cell Crater Cassini he did a good job at giving us broad answers to this question at the large scale tens of miles for example but nothing beats getting down to the surface and actually digging your hands and feet in so to speak solder Baum also spoke to this. He said there's a plethora of unanswered answered questions about Titan's surface. One fundamental question we have yet to answer is what is the composition of titans major geologic units or if the water ice bedrock is exposed anywhere on Titan or if it's been buried beneath organic gunk this is because Titan's atmosphere obscures. Surface at most wavelengths limiting our ability to use traditional remote sensing techniques to study the surface composition dragonflies scrutiny of Titan's surface may also yield insights about the moon's atmosphere and the chemistry going on there which could in turn wind up helping us understand more about ourselves. We also spoke with Sarah Horst an assistant professor in the School of Earth and Planetary Sciences at Johns Hopkins University. WHO's also an investigator on the project? She said that chemistry and the atmosphere's interact with the surface quote is important for understanding the role that atmospheres play in the origin or evolution of life and also help us figure out what types molecules may constitute evidence for life when we're looking at observations faraway atmosphere's like those of exoplanets.

Joining us from Spain to talk about stage seven really to look ahead at stage eight but they were incredibly fast today. Yes. I mean, after the change of leader jersey yesterday, they hundred eighty five kilometers and quite acceptable stage, but not an easy stage. So will you be already knew beforehand, that this was going to be difficult for sprinters through to hang on? And so a breakaway when the quite early in the stage a strong breakaway guys initially finally, they ended up with ten, and then finally three or four never had more than two minutes or two. Minutes thirty seconds on the pilot on. So they went super fast in the front super fast in the bunch. And at the end of the day, a guy from the breakaway, you'll be bowel from Astana won the stage. Well deserved, I think while deserve, but definitely these are the kind of stages that take allow for the riders and the tiredness just stacks up. And, you know, a Monday is the first rest day, and it's going to be a welcome, welcome, the for all the writers, especially if you look at, you know, get today they was a hundred and eighty five kilometers, but the amount of kilometers AO, ready, have long super long stages. Everybody's gonna look forward to who Monday for a lot of riders time trial is also a semi rest day because they're not going super super heart, but, but yet today was definitely one of these one of those days that a lot of writers will remember. Yeah, I'd look. It up, even though they had to classified climbs. One hundred and eighty five K average just over forty five kilometers per hour. Yes. Yeah. I saw the first the first one in a half hour was ninety four point five, which means you know, after week of racing that means that the, it was crazy crazy fast than a big war for, you know, a lot of people love deems, who wanted to be represented in the, the breakaway and you know, usually when that happens. It's yeah. It's, it's mayhem. I think with that fast pace. Definitely takes. It's always all a couple of abandoned riders today, one being very yeah. Yeah, I was surprised the obviously because, you know, he's he still has a few chances to sprint or he had a few Jensen's sprint. And then on top of that, you know, with the leader jersey in the team, you don't just abandon because you want to. So then I found out that he's already struggling with the knee pain for number of days. And that, you know, he, he couldn't even try this morning because it was a big inflammation in his knee and of Neal's wants to do the tour de France. So probably his team have said, you know, this doesn't make any sense. It's a big decision. It's a big decision, especially you know with the riders with the only eight riders on the teams now for big tours and they are ready had one guy out of the race. Or.

It's got many attributes at one looks for for a project that can be advanced quickly to put it into production situation, much sooner than you would see in a normal large guy low-grade upper thought yet. Exploration by previous companies identified numerous high grade, copper and gold bearing pipes that crop out at surface now under the direction of geology legend, Doug kirwin chat. Canada is literally taking a new angle to exploring this cluster of mineral deposits are chairman is a gentleman named Doug kirwin. Doug is a world renowned geologist. He was with Ivanhoe for about fifteen years multiple discoveries under his belt several of those discoveries. Have turned into mines building on the knowledge of past drilling in the area has done extensive geological and geophysical research and gain the confidence to drill aggressively with phase one now complete we have documented that the Bratcher pipes are getting larger depth. We've discovered a blind Bradsher pipe are immediately adjacent to the first branch of pipe that we started drilling, and that's really huge for the project. Because it shows us that the erosion level exposed some of the pressure pipes, but not all of the veterans pipes, and we expect to see more of that in the future as we continue to grow. When you look at the rocks and sell them in the mineralisation is absolutely spectacular. And we're seeing some of the most spectacular mineralized branches that that I've ever seen in my career the solely dad project is located just thirty five kilometers south of barracks. Fully operating Perino mine and was auctioned from Condor resources, we've done to expansions of the original condo Orlando position to pick up additional pressure pipes to the south and more recently. We've done a deal with Barrick to acquire concession south of the main solely dad project, which brings up another cluster of mineralized retro pipes to the project senior mining analyst Ralph all thinks Takano could be flying under the radar. They are drilling pipe threaten. Putting out results market. Really isn't that much aware of what they're doing? A lot of people are not following exploration stories so closely right now, but this is this is the makings of something that I think very very special research and planning is critical, but David Kelly understand that discoveries. Come from action. We've been fortunate to have a really strong commercial team behind this to help with the financing we've raised twenty two million dollars since the start. And that's really given us the capability to be aggressive with the drill. And it's really through drilling discoveries are made with an expert team at the helm and money in the Bank to copper as drilling for success and one of the world's most proven mining districts.
