"Out a way to provide service right whether they were able to figure. Out some distancing measures students may be able to come into studios one at a time and in some measure right which i think has been true of. Kfc at foothill college. Where were you broadcast or figured out. Some methodology for some students to broadcast from home or at his combination of maybe prerecording it a podcast form in broadcasting. It sounds as though i. I haven't heard any been privy to any news that that this has wiped out stations. Yeah i haven't either. I think. I think i'm feeling optimistic. Now because now now we're seeing more campuses opening up. And i think in the fall it's going to be a much different picture scenario. Starting to hear things about some colleges might require that you'd be vaccinated at foothill college where i dj. I forget if i've even mentioned this on the show. But but i've come back and i've done a few shows in person now which i hadn't done in a year and and for the most part people at the radio station at foothill college jc We're the only people on campus but some people are starting to come back and and they're creating measures for you to check into buildings in a different way and do health checks. So i think there's a lot there's a lot of infrastructure that's kind of changing on campus. That is going to make it easier for people to come back And some people may be back already at various other campuses and certainly were hearing about high schools that are planning to be fully open in the fall so that affects high school radio. So i think You know a lot of creative things happened in the past year. It'll be interesting to see if those continue for myself. I'm enjoying being able to go to radio station meetings at my station over zoom and not having to get in the car for five. Well right exactly. I mean because you live a good thirty minute. Forty minute drive from. Yeah and and a lot of large metropolitan areas. I'm sure lots of folks that same experience versus maybe some you know. Smaller towns may have a commuter college station where most people live within ten or fifteen minutes. Right i think that's been a big lesson. You know not just obviously radio but for a lot of a lot of life in this. Last year is forcing so many people and organizations and activities online while it was a challenge and everyone but it seems that many people have adapted to reasonably. Well it also gave us an example of how much more accessible things could be as well utilizing online technology sort of kicked. Everyone's collective but if you will to contend with the fact that being able to to travel in even a even even or commute. Let's say it can be a privilege and you know whether it's due to to you know lack of access to transportation or just you know sharing a car versus owning a car childcare care of family members and other obligations that may make it difficult to leave one's home at a particular time but that where you could easily dial-in as you say as one might say i think that's an interesting lesson in in. I'll be curious to see how much of it stays with. You know whether it's you know college and community radio stations. Being able to have their meetings at least partially virtual or you know extending virtual alive or prerecorded broadcasting To to more people right so so maybe a mitigating that requirement that people come into a studio in order to participate in community radio. 'cause i know and there are many stations that have tried to work with this and thought about ways in which they can either help people find transport right or subsidised transport or even heard talk of plans..

"Everyone felt comfortable going up to the station. So suddenly we started at cass and figuring out the technology and and now we're starting to have some people prerecording shows from home as well but you're right. I mean it was this. It's this mental shift. And i think stations like kfc wmu. You know what's it gonna be like in the future now that some people are used to doing shows at home and and you don't wanna miss that community at the station that you talk about that so vital where you're interacting with people in person hanging out chatting playing music from the station's library. Lp's cds cassettes. When we spoke with ken. Friedman of w fm. You back on episode number two hundred and forty on april seventh of twenty twenty He talked about how important it was. in the forefront of my mind how his station was dealing with this the fact that he valued the live radio So greatly and wanted the dj's to show up and be in the station because obviously the technology has been available for people to record their dj sets at home and e mail them in high quality audio to the station and the station can air. You know there's there. There's no reason not to do that. Except for if the values of your station is to have that live sound. And i challenged. Ken friedman to sort of explain. Why live was so important to him and he gave a great answer. But it wasn't until later on in the year When you know here in twenty twenty as you may remember if you've lived through it It took a more than a week for the outcome of the election to be sort of officially as far as the news was concerned and it was a friday. And when when the when joe biden's victory it's funny. It was a little it was a it was a fuzzy event. It was it was a saturday. I remember very clearly. 'cause i was woken up by one or two fireworks. How file your. And only that. And i thought to myself On a saturday morning. That must mean. The president has been declared and i wanted to turn on my local radio station. And here the dj's song decision in that moment and that's that was unfortunately not available to me no matter where i spun my dial even around even to wfan. I went straight. I went. I went everywhere looking for a dj. And i suspect if it had been a friday you might have gotten that because stations you know. Have adapted to having some of their drive time programming. Be not prerecorded but done live from remote locations. I suspect you might have heard that very specifically because it's a saturday morning. I think where which might have otherwise been alive. Dj on these stations. There's probably less pressure to try and figure out how to make that live then. There is for drive times. I do think the fact that the day that week in that particular situation is critical but but also you know. I think we have to recognize the other technical innovation. That stations have been in many ways forced to adapt to is the ability to do live brought remote broadcasting and not just because of the coronavirus but again as we mentioned as you mentioned jennifer at kfc at foothill college..

"Jersey a renowned for its sort of cutting edge free form musical musical presentation and because it's in the largest media market in the country right has also kind of an outsized over listenership for station of that sort is well known and has always been able to keep this. You know we are alive on air operation and sort of have to go to to both prerecorded or remote broadcasting. Because you know those of us who've been in college and community radio you know there is. There is something to having a common space that you share a studio and lounge areas and and music libraries as well right to the physical media the records cds but unlike having opportunity as a dj to respond to the show that just went on the air prior to you. Because you're both producing this content life at literally. Talk to that you as you as you exchange places in the studio and in the so. That's you know that sort of goes away for so many stations and for the stations that had avoided having automation because of the fact that it sort of clashes with their with their ethos of live radio especially in an era in which under rested dial very little is often tree analyze. It was a real challenge. You know but i think highlighted the fact that this particular technical innovation that maybe necessary to continue to be a broadcaster will. Yeah and so i. I'm also volunteering. Dj at j. c. Foothill college we had zero automation. We pride ourselves on live deejays. Twenty four seven. We never went off the air. We always have people in the middle of the night and you know suddenly. Suddenly we were faced with a situation where they're actually days when our cap is closed because of bad air quality this year as well because of wildfires and smoke and And i think we realized that we were unprepared for dealing with that and and not..

"Among the stars. Let me see what spring is like on How'd you but in my in other words? Hold my hand. Good afternoon. I'm Pat Thurston. I am delighted that Andrew frak noise joining us. He is an astronomer. He teaches that the From Institute at USF. He's a former chair of the astronomy department at Foothill College. He works with city the search for extraterrestrial intelligence. Andrew Frak noise been recognized for his lifetime of work using everyday language like Sco's to make astronomy more accessible and popular for both students and the general public, and we love having him on Andrew Fractionally. Thank you so much for being with us today. Oh, thank you for that kind. Welcome. Listen, you I want you to comment on this, and I know you're going to resist me. But the news is that there's a former Israeli space official who's talking of a galactic federation that Donald Trump knows about has been in contact with. Now. I gotta tell you, Donald Trump isn't real good at keeping secrets. I think if he knew something like that, he'd be blabbing about it to the world. Um, but I don't know. Maybe the galactic Federation is what gave rise to Q. What are your thoughts on this Israeli space official and this information? Well, I don't know the official and unfortunately being a high official in the military or in the government. Hasn't always guaranteed that people are rational or are conveying good information. We've had sad examples of that in the United States and all over the world. So my my response to all those things is what's the evidence? Show me Show me the proof it you know all these UFOs that supposedly have landed on earth and have kidnapped people, so not a single one of them has ever left a sandwich wrapper behind, right? Well, not a single one of those ever had a little peace break off. If we had a piece of alien technology or food, we could analyze it just like we do rocks from space in great detail, and we could figure out if it's earthly or on Earth. Please. The chemistry would tell us that it's not from Earth. So it would be great to have some concrete evidence off all these conspiracy theories about aliens, but we've never had a single sliver. Of alien technology to analyze and so until we get some real proof, I think these are more fantasies rather than connections to science. Well, I bet because of who you are and what you know, And what your expertise is a bet You've heard all kinds of stories that people tell you about their encounters with some sort of alien life force. Have you heard any stories that you thought were at all credible that gave you pause That may have made you think that There was a close encounter of the third Kind short answer is no. Okay. All right. Good, no movie that I've read a great deal about this. In fact, I love Let me be more serious because this is actually interesting, Perhaps that some of our listeners there's an actual field. No. Which you might, for better word called UFO detectives. Probably the premier UFO detective in the world was Philip Klass K. L S s Ulises can google him But there are people who actually tracked down UFO reports tracked down specific things that people are claiming and figure out what really happened. For example, Jimmy Carter, the former president before he became president made a UFO report. And because he's a conscientious kind of guy was a very detailed report of something that happened to him in Georgia, where he saw lights moving in the sky, and the reform was so good. We were actually able to analyze where in the sky he was looking and what he was seeing. And he was seeing Venus the planet Venus as an especially bright evening star interesting, and he just didn't know it was Venus, and it was so bright it seemed to be moving because that's an optical illusion you often have with a single bright light. Get in the sky. And so he earnestly thought it was a UFO. And so many of these reports turn out when they're carefully analyzed by a good detective to be something interesting, something terrestrial something in the sky that's real, but having nothing to do with alien spaceships. So Arthur C. Clarke said it best, he said, UFO reports tell us almost nothing about intelligence in outer space. But they do tell us how rare it is on Earth. And to this Paul Rogers. You poop well, this stuff and yet your involving city. So that's how I explain that. Well, that's a great question. Thank you. Yes, absolutely. Although I don't think any aliens have landed here I am. Like many astronomers quite optimistic about the possibility that out there at the vast distances the stars there may well be other intelligent civilizations. There's nothing special about the Earth. We've not discovered. That there are thousands of on thousands of stars that have planets, some life the earth. And so we're optimistic about the possibility even if they're too far away to take vacations here, And so we would like to get in touch with them and the scientific city effort. The search for extraterrestrial intelligence effort that I'm involved with that the City Institute is an actual experiment or serious of experiments to see if we can tune in. On some signals that these alien civilizations may be broadcasting into the universe, maybe their equivalent of kgo. Um, and that we can over here, not because it's meant for us because it's a powerful signal on we get over here. So that's the scientific study effort, and I'm very excited about that. I take my vitamins so I could still be alive. When we perhaps find the first alien message from the remote regions of space. I want you to talk with us, and I know we're going to talk about some specific things, including this meteor shower that's coming. But there is something else I would like you to talk about. It's heresy, Bo This. Tell us about that What it is And what happened. Thank you for asking. That's like a death in the family. For astronomers. Um, it's the world's largest radio telescope, the Lord's largest telescope that can detect not light from outer space. But radio waves, which tell us about a whole different aspect of the universe. That largest telescope was in hole in Puerto Rico. I should say Puerto Rico had a.

"Welcome back. We're talking with Dr Andrew Franks. Oi! The Americas chair, the astronomy Department of Foothill College. Dr Pratt. No, Frank. All of your years. What has been the most personally thrilling discovery by the science community involving cosmology and astronomy? What to you has been the most exciting find. More that That's a difficult question for this so many candidates, But what I would answer is the biggest change in astronomy has been our discovery that planets around other stars are extremely common. Uh, 30 years ago, we didn't know a single planet orbiting a different star, another son, and now we know for 1000 stars orbiting other stars. So other 4000 planets orbiting other stars, and that's incredibly exciting from the perspective of people like me. Who'd love to see us discover life elsewhere, maybe even intelligent life elsewhere. And so planet seems to be if I may use this expression as common as dirt. Out there, and that's a big change and very encouraging for planet fans. And absolutely, and it's also so intriguing to think about the possibility of life on other planets. We know that Life takes a certain set of circumstances to form but there's no reason there couldn't be life all over the universe. Correct. We are finding not just planets but actually Earth analog planets, planets that resemble the earth where water could be liquid where there could be an atmosphere like we have. So we've actually identified a number of planets, which look good from the perspective of life as we know it. And as you may know, I served for years on the board of directors of what's called the Settee Institute. Yes, do the search for extra dressing. Toral Intelligence Institute, and every time we identify a planet that seems like the candidate for the study institute, then points radio telescope in their direction to see if we might over hear the equivalent of their radio messages. So this is an ongoing stirred in the astronomical community. We'd love the over here. A message or broadcast by an alien civilization. Even if we don't understand the exact meaning of it just to know that there's some artificial signal from somewhere else would be such an exciting discovery. Wouldn't that be amazing? I bet if you had a nickel for every time you've heard this joke could be a wealthy man. Why don't you look for intelligent life on this planet first wanted to start ever more difficult. Well, what for you? What is the next big Horizon and in your understanding of cosmology. What's the next big thing? Well, I think the next big thing we're going to do is we're going to launch the next space telescope and so successor to the Hubble Space Telescope, which is called the James Webb. Tell us right, and it's going to be much bigger, and it will not only searched the universe in light, but also in heat rays attention, Just like you can measure the heat of something, and soldiers are given infrared goggles to see at night. We're going to be getting incredible images and data from the universe to measure its heat as well as its light. And to see things that we've never been able to see before the Hubble did that years ago. What changed everything, didn't it Now we'll do it again. With a Web Hubbell level gave a sharper eyes. It wasn't the biggest telescope, but it was the sharpest telescope whose is above all the fog and smog in the atmosphere. And the Web is going to be similarly out in space, but with even bigger eyes, even bigger receiving area so we can see fainter things in the universe. Well, I can't wait to see those images and those discoveries and all of this. This discussion today was the result of that amazing Successful landing on an asteroid 200 million miles from Earth on Wednesday. Dr Andrew Frak Noi, emeritus chair, Astronomy department. Foothill College. You're very kind to come on. I could talk to you all day. And I congratulate you on a life and career of.

"You about. Did you see the pictures on Wednesday? The video we headed on ABC seven. News of that probe, landing on the asteroid 200 million miles from Earth. Absolutely stunning. You know, If this has happened 2030 years ago, it's all we'd be talking about. All of these amazing technological achievements have become so a routine we have Barely noticed them in passing, and I wanted to focus on it a little bit, Can you and I talked about that wasn't the most amazing thing you've ever seen. It's crazy. How weaken dude that I don't even Yeah, I can't find them. I know it's fascinating, and I will tell you, you know, I love what I do if I could do and I have a lot of interests and a lot of things that I find fascinating, but probably nothing. Mohr. Than a strong truly astronomy and cosmology. Since I was a little kid, I used to lie in my driveway and stare at the stars and think about it. I find it utterly fascinating. Unfortunately, it must be wonderful to do that for a living. If you're fascinated by, unfortunately, my math skills stop it about checkbook level. Well, see, I have Ah, six year old son who wants to be an astronaut. Really? We spend a lot of time watching videos of spacecraft. So he's into it already. We'll see how his math skills carry him. Yeah, unfortunately, is way too much math involved. That's my problem with it, because it's fascinating that we're going to talk a lot. I want to know that I have about a million questions for this guest. The emeritus chair of the astronomy department at Foothill College, Andrew Frank noise with us, Andrew, Are you there? I'm here and I love hearing your enthusiasm. Thank you so much. It is sincere. I have been. I think about it all the time. I read. You know, I'm not an expert on it, obviously, but I read a great deal about it. I watch every space documentary. I get my hands on. I have found it absolutely fascinating and I don't know why it's captured my imagination. It's mind boggling, and I commend you. It must be a very satisfying life. I've often thought if you have an interest in something to spend your life studying it. You must be a joy. I have to say that I've really enjoyed iPod introductory astronomy to thousands of students like for four decades, and it's been a wonderful experience. I've also written some textbooks. And so my my joy is not just enjoying astronomy for myself, but also Sharing it with others with students and with the radio listener, So we're going to share a lot of this today. Your passion for danger. I'm just so excited to talk with you about this first. Let's talk about this amazing mission. I think the probe launched in 2017 arrived at Bennu and on Wednesday really on Tuesday, but we saw the pictures Wednesday by the time they got back to Earth. Descended onto this asteroid 200 million miles from our planet and landed on this asteroid for five seconds, scooped up some material and went back up, But it's not heading home yet. Is it? No, that's all right. So this spacecraft is called a serious Rex. It's Ah, It's a NASA mission. And the idea is to go to some place which is untouched Member of the solar system. So we are on a planet, which is part of a group of planets and the sun in you know, in an arrangement we call the solar system. And most of the planets have been re worked overtime, atmospheres and impact. All kinds of other things have changed the surface so we no longer have the original material from which the Earth was made. But this asteroid this chunk of rock and in space, we think is pretty much the primitive material from which the solar system first gathered together. So we wanted for a long time. Not just Look at it from afar, but to grab a piece of it and bring it home. And that's what this mission is all about Taking this dark, carbon rich chunk of ancient material and stealing a little bit of it for our own study. It's just incredible that we have Capability, do it, and I feel so privileged to live in an era where these things can be made So and this grabbed a very small amount of material. Maybe 60 G from what I read. And from what I understand, Dr Frank Malloy. It will Orbit the asteroid it for a little bit while longer while they decide if they've gotten enough material. If not, they may go try to grab Mauritz. It does. It will begin the two year journey back to Earth in March, and I correct about that. Right, so they gave themselves to tries. The amount of material they want to grab, NASA said, is roughly the weight of a candy bar, so that's not well, but it's a lot to get because when they touch down and they didn't have the ability to dig, so what they did, they took a puff of nitrogen gas. And blew it at high speed at the surface, and then dust and pebbles were supposed to rise up, and some of it was caught in the collector area of the arm that the spacecraft extended. And so the big question is. Did this puff of gas this large enough material to get a candy bar is worth Inside the arm, and they were gonna whip the arm around the spacecraft again away. If they're going to do all kinds of things that take pictures of it to see if they've grabbed enough. If not, they have a chance to touch down again in January and try it all again and then yes, they're going to come back after that second maneuver. They're going to come back to Earth. We expect himto land in 2023 in western Utah to parachute to a landing. And then find us We'll have a chance to analyze the actual samples that they it's just amazing. And what what do you hope? What does NASA hope? What does the scientific community hope to find there and learn from that material? They bring back? What's it going to tell them? Well, so this way we know that the process of making planets and stars is not finished. That's one of the great discoveries of modern astronomy. That new star Ours. New planets may be the new KGO listeners are being sold a lot of time. Let's hold. So yes, that's right. We need a bigger audience. But so this idea that there's an ongoing creation process is very exciting. Our creation process lies some five billion years in the past. It was about five billion years ago that a great cloud of material swirled together, gravity pulled it together. Either and the sun and the planets were formed. So many of the traces of that origin process are gone. But we would like to see how it happened not just to see how really reformed but to understand better how new systems are forming right now, and that's what this material will help us. Do it will give us Some clues about the pristine, untouched material from which we made the planets totally fascinating. I have several questions, Alaska just in general about space and then one that I've always wanted to ask an astronomer. That's a little silly, but it it just fascinates me. I was reading an interesting article the other day that the universe they now think is about 13.8. A billion years old. And and correct me if I'm wrong in these figures, But okay, but that but that there is a star Methuselah that may be older than that. How could that possibly be the case? No, that that can't be the case. So I generally start don't have names like this so that this may be one of those fake news stories. Or maybe someone misunderstanding the science a long time ago when I was first getting into astronomy when we were not that good at measuring ages. There was this brief period of time when we thought that we saw material. In the universe older than what we then thought the age of the Big Bang watch. But this has all been sorted out in the decades. Oh, nothing can be older than the universe that we actually have some of the original energy that made the Big bang. We have been able to essentially capture the leftover echo of the Big Bang. And put everything in context. That's that's probably been one of the greatest oppa tasks for astronomers in my lifetime. Well, thank you for clearing that up. This may have been. I think it was a credible article. What may have been an older article that I read and maybe I'm just understood it, but but at any rate 13.8.

"Today. We're going to have to notify Chip Franklin that we're not gonna have his show because I've got so much to talk about. We may go all afternoon. Kidding, Of course, but I really am excited. We have some great stuff to talk about today on this planet and Out in space as well. Chemical Lister's here came to watch the debate last night. I did. It was fascinating. We actually had a real debate. We had a debate. We've got some information. We heard the candidates Hooray! We did, and it was, you know, I think that I want to talk with our first guest in a moment about this, but the mute button seemed to work. Sad State of affairs that we need a mute button. I love the mute button. We're joking here Last night. We have an afternoon Ah, engineer board operator named Karen and I said, Boy, Karen, If you were in charge of the mute button, it would be really great. Well it I think it made a difference. But we did have a least a real discussion on several key issues. There was some testing moments, which you know, generally have and really always want to see. You want to see candidates. Clash a little bit to test their personalities and show their mettle. But you had a real discussion of really issues. The line that set out to me was when Biden said. It's a question of character and the character of the nation is on the ballot. Yeah, that was a powerful line. He had a number of very strong lines. I thought, as did President Trump. He seemed relatively well prepared. You know this, and you could clearly see that he was disciplined on trying to be disciplined about not interrupting as much as you did. You got a lot of blow back last time, not just from his critics, but from members of his own party about that performance, so We saw a different debate last one we're going to see Kim election is what now 11 days away right away. I think so. And I understand that so many people have already voted. I had already voted as well. So for me, wouldn't you? Change my vote. But I think that it doesn't necessarily matter whether you know you'd already voted or not, you still many people myself included still wanted to look at the candidates. And you still want Teo understand where they're coming from and be part of that historical moment. Yeah, no question about it. We'll talk a lot about this. We've got a great show today. Film A tear is here. San Francisco Chronicle may be C seven news political insider Andrew Frat noise is here. The emeritus chair of the astronomy department at Foothill College We touched on this yesterday, Kim and I mentioned We have more on this. That amazing landing on an asteroid 200 million miles away from Earth. This just fascinate me, and we're going to talk with Dr Frank Nelly about this, I think will be really fascinating that that was just incredible on Wednesday to see those pictures of that thing landing on that asteroid. And we've got to Tim Sika. It's Friday. So we've got our film critic here to talk about movies. And there's a couple of movies that you want to know about. But our first guest today to talk a lot more about the debate, my friend and partner occasionally on ABC, seven News, senior writer for Politicos, California Project Carla Marinucci is on the program. Carla you with us? Yes, I'm with you guys. Thank you so much for having me and always will be. You're the best, Carla. So glad to have you on. What did you think you watched every moment with rapt attention. I have no doubt what you think of the performance last night. I kind of agree with you and Kim. Look, this was kind of a shocker. Because it was a civil Syrian discussion, and Donald Trump kept his temper in that guy. He really listened to his advisers and strategists. It was a very big moment for him. I mean, 11 days before the election already we've had. I think 51 Million Americans voting is Kim mentioned. And Trump was running out of time to make the sale. Essentially, he is, you know, a lot been showing himself behind the eight ball in just about every major national poll and among key constituencies, like women, seniors and so forth. So this was the moment and I think he succeeded in a lot of ways. I mean, he, for the most part Stop this from being a dumpster fire. He I think on one hand because he delivered that could hit. He delivered some good hits on Biden. But he also delivers numerous misstatements. I think, particularly on the coded pandemic. That was his weakest segment, I think where he insisted it was going away, even though we know that country is experiencing any dramatic resurgence and death arising in many of the blue state, not California, A and a for he slammed California. Saying people are dying, dying dying. Governor Gavin Distant came back immediately on Twitter on said That's no that's not right. We're alive and healthy. And I think that that was his weakest moment. But you know my contract and I think Biden Managed to counter you know, Biden is not the greatest debater but boy he given any uninterrupted time, He held his own against Trump on the Kobe pandemic on Obama care, particularly that was another big moment. I think And I think he was strongest, Kim said. When he directly to the American people about calls for unity. He is that line that Obama has used to great effect in the past that these are not red, State or blue states that the United States and I think that is a line. It has been a sort of feeling the double digit lead. He has over trumping many off the national polls and in many of the keys to swing states right now, Yeah, I think so. And I think that kind of rhetoric resonates particularly well. Right now we're in a nation that has been so politically divided for the past several years. I think people it's it's It's almost a sad isn't it on the wound? People like hearing that that maybe didn't can heal a little bit. Yeah. Absolutely. And you know, Bynes causing argument was, you know, I think I can mention this one. It was on the ballot is the character of the country. Decency, honor, respect, And I think you know that the country is is just devastated. Tired. Exhausted from this pandemic, and I think one of Trump's down solved in the last couple of weeks has been kind of make this a reduction on Hillary Clinton e mails on Hunter Biden. Um, I I think Americans, most of the American people are saying Hey, I'm sitting at home. I'm lady without a job. Bye. I want to know when I'm 50 factual, normal life. What are you going to do about that? That's where I think this debate. Succeded in that the moderator Kristen Welker, managed to keep them on track to get to a lot of those issues. Last night, Kristin did a very good job on made a little bit easier by the fact that the microphone muting was in effect and I candidate seemed a little more determined or a little more disciplined about cooperating, But she did a great job keeping it moving forward. I thought It's a sad state of affairs that we need to mute mikes on presidential candidates, But I think it worked. I mean, I think it made a difference. Yes, I think I think you're right. I think the meat but was a winner last night along with the moderator, and you know what we should say Only the second black woman ever to moderated presidential debates, right and she can't She kept it in line. She kept it moving and followed up with questions. I thought that it was Ah, very valuable for for folks at home watching, and I think, you know, we saw some heat light in there. I think that that was that was very valuable. But you know many, many already cast those ballots. At this point. I think the question is, did Trump It was Trump get anything out of this was his good performance too late..

Anyway, I was like turn off that Roblox and he was like this big grin young very grignon any punched on the power button and then the thing never turned on again the guy at the computer guy. I've gotta give a shout back which is the man hardly gave him a shot him. Another mind man. Michael Lopez was super techie geek that's his name to protect him up. He's on Google or with the internet and come on my super. Techie Michael Lopez. He's downtown San Jose fixes my computer. And this was the second one I brought to him and I thought I was concerned that he was going to dive coronavirus and have my cock. Computer and I wouldn't be able to get it back. So I won't I will warn you giving computer repair right now will stress you out. You will worry for the health of the computer repairman. You're like I wanted to repair my computer, but I hope he's not in the computer repair shop too often. I hope he hasn't seemed to many people, you know, a lot of people are home trying to get the computer working for the zoom or whatever. And anyway, super techie fix my stuff off. It turns onto now, I'm recording on my regular microphone my regular grade so I don't actually have to use this sound bed. I don't know if I used one. That's some suspense you'll see I'll probably put the sound effect when we get in done through sound effect. I like that last time here sound effect. Yeah, what's the matter with Me podcast has a Facebook page in the I wrote on it or applied at this post and I'll give you a shout out in the next episode of what's the matter with it. And now I think it was a couple episodes ago if I'm honest and so I'm a little bit of a lying slacker now. I'm just certain this is not a real name. Because it's Nate Archer backwards but a a thing called Eat'n Rick Rivera, but keep up the good work girls. Shout out to you eaten in that's where we can all hope in life to be doing eating son water-logged in Rick ra Jaan balance. All right, go ahead and get your computer fixed and then check out my Facebook page right now. So last summer was talking about how my doctor told me that I personally have not at Increased risk for hospitalization from covid-19 and that was kind of a relief. So something had been talking about, you know, my family is all in my bubble, I guess so I have to discuss everything with them and something I was talking about is returning the air on kfjc and I talked with Ross babbo who is the fill-in coordinator. So he's in charge of making sure off all the error is full. You know, people are DJ, so I wrote him and I have to because of coronavirus Foothill College special protocols.

"In one of my very favorite guests of all time is joining us here on KGO he is Andrew Frak Noi. Andrew Frag Noi is an astronomer extraordinaire. He is associated with the from Institute. Andrews actually an emeritus chair at the astronomy department at Foothill College. Is that right? Are you still there? A Foothill College, Andrew? Well, I'm emeritus retired from there, and I'm now teaching only classes for seniors for retired people at the University of San Francisco and also temper disco ST. Okay. What about from from the Institute of the University of Tampa. Typical specifically designed to help people come back to school when they're seniors and love that I just love that. And you know you are the perfect teacher for that, because you help us understand things without making us feel stupid and you help us tow Also be odd by the learning that you bestow upon us and it's Ah, It's a rare gift. And I thank you so much. Because you are that person and for sharing that with us here on KGO, So you're very I'm not really. You're just you're just a remarkable man. So listen, Let's talk about what's going on. Because when they said that there were these Nobel prizes that had to do with black holes, I thought, surely that was you. It wasn't but do tell what what went on what caused the Nobel Committee to decide that this was no bell worthy? Well, that's a great question. So let's just back up for for one minute and tell our listeners what black holes are. When very large stars stars much bigger. Than our sun die. Our theories of how gravity works. Tell us that nothing can stop such a dead far from collapsing essentially forever, and that's a long time. So that must be a very powerful kind of collapse. And we now understand that this Ah, death collapse of the huge star will lead to so much gravity being so concentrated that nothing not even light can get away and recall such a collapsed star a black hole Because it looks black light can't get away so no radiation escapes from it. And it's like a whole. If you get near it and throw something in, you'll never see it again. So these are the mysterious and invisible black holes. Half of the prize is given to the two Roger Penrose, who came up with the theory off how black holes must exist if our understanding of gravity is correct, and the other half was divided by two scientists, both with California connections who then went out To discover our black hole despite the flag, despite the fact that it's black by watching things go around it, And they found that at the center of our Milky Way galaxy of our home system of stars, there is a black hole that has already swallowed as much material. Four million son for million. Okay, So wait. So I'm looking at something. I don't have it in front of me. But I read this this morning that the this this collapse would cause annoy items say the size of the earth to collapse in on itself in this intense gravity would ultimately it would be the size of a pea so earth would be reduced to the size of a pea in order for this. No Like to escape business toe happen. It must it would be that collect now the Can't do that. The Earth doesn't have enough gravity to collapse. Lecter, but that's the analogy. All right. Okay, So it is, if it's that, I mean, how big are black holes? And are they continuously shrinking in on themselves? Or are they expanding? Because how would they suck in, you know, Forward four million? How many sons did you say four million? A lot of suns there big stores. You betcha. And so this is a very interesting question that you're asking Our collapses to become a black hole. It will go from being about a million miles in extent, 20 Miles. So think about that, from a million miles to try any like China. Must I like to use the technical term scrolls in black hole? I used that because of you, Thank you. These are frozen objects. And so now the other question is very subtle. It turns out our theory of relativity Einstein theory, which tells us how gravity works says that once a black hole forms the five off the region where you get trapped, or we call its event horizon, the region where you get trapped, stays the same size. So even though inside the stuff is collapsed, again, collapsing and collapsing. The danger zone around this collapsed object stays the same size on less. It's eating. If it's eating, the more it eats, the bigger the danger zone gets. So it's like the blob that ate Chicago in the old horror movies, The more it eats, the bigger it guess. But even then it's up, but bigger. What get the event horizon or the bigger it gets well know that the event horizon defines if you will. The entry points to the black eyes. So the region where you get trapped Is 20 miles across. He had another star. It's 40 miles across. If you had a million stars, it's 40 million mother cost, but that's still less than the size of the orbit of the Earth. So he's really even these monster black holes that the two Nobel Prize winners discovered. Even those are not as big as our solar system. So we're still talking about astronomically. Very small, obvious, okay? But if if they're second in all those stars and then and so that that event horizon is is getting bigger. Is that going to continue to get bigger until ultimately it does envelope us. No, no, because yes, it even though it's getting bigger. It's really getting bigger only by a small amount. So ah, the the Distance to the center of our galaxy. Where this is happening is light years Lightyears in like years and here we're talking on miles. The extent of this is only miles. So it's the even if the black hole is eaten four million Suns. It's not as big as the orbit of Planet Earth's, so it's really a very small compared to the galaxy. We're not afraid of this black hole at all. Those were some very smart people who are making One of these discoveries..

"Way I feel about it. I was a big fan of Star Trek. Of course. When I was a little kid, it was the Fireball XL five that nobody remembers anymore. But I love the idea. We had Captain satellite here in the Bay area. I love the idea of space travel and wanting to travel, But I never had any skillet. Science. I was never any good at it. And so I gave it up pretty early. Dr. Andrew Frak. Noi is my guest. He's an astronomer. He's a teacher of astronomy, and he's talking with us about astronomy answering our questions. And Paul have asked a question about Einstein's theories of relativity and Paul. You wanna follow up, particularly the general and you were talking to a doctor about how time slows down, But I was under the impression the general theory suggests you can actually reverse time or go forward in time. Right. So that's how you go forward in time. If time slows down, Let's say you're an astronaut and you find a nearby black hole where you can go and have time slow down. Meanwhile, time goes at a normal rate on Earth. And then you come back now for you at the black hole, maybe a month has passed. But meanwhile, on Earth, 10 years have passed and you're now in the future. You have traveled forward in time because you're slow down time allowed out race in a way, the time on earth. It's very weird connection, but it does turn out to be the way the universe actually works are Experiments have confirmed. Amazing. I mean, you you see why we call this guy? A genius. I mean good grief. He did this in what, 1918 or something 1916. So before the flu pandemic, no calculators. So in 1916 wasn't World War One raging. Was he in Was he in Germany At the time he was he was in Germany of time, and he was a pacifist for most of his life. So he was not happy about the war at all about Germany because he was brilliant because he was brilliant and most brilliant. People feel that way. 80 88 10 is our telephone number. You want to take question or two from a listener? You bet. All right, let's do it. Let's start with Laurel. Laurel's calling from San Jose. Laurel. Hi. Welcome to KGO. You're on with Andrew Friends. Go ahead. Hi. Oh, hi. Thank you, Doctor. I really enjoy your explanation of things is very fascinating. Um, I just had a question. I hope it's not too personal. But with all your knowledge of the universe and everything do you believe like in a higher power or intelligent design? I was just curious if you believe in God. Yes, This is a complicated question. I don't think that astronomers have any better answer to that question, then the ordinary person. I think it's a matter of off personal belief. What what Einstein believed and I kind of share. This belief is that the universe must have been set up. In a sense by a law giver by Ah you'd not necessarily someone who is personally involved with us, but set up the rules of the universe and hey, often talked about the vision of God that he had. Other people think that the universe was set up by natural forces. Not all of which we understand, but I think this is really a question of personal choice. Have you ever, doctor Frankly, Have you ever taken LSD? Thank you. Your mind will load with everything that you know and with, you know, pursuing the answers of the universe. You don't have Tio, you know, but I, but in fact, my answer to all drug questions is that I'm high on the university that there's so much out there such beautiful things out there that It's wonderful to be able to share in that. And I don't think I need drugs to get in touch with the amazing universe. All right, Let's get another call from a listener. This is Lisa calling from Gilroy. Lisa, you're on with Andrew. Frank. No, you go ahead. Okay. Two questions. One does matter ever actually crossed into a black hole because of the time dilation And because it takes like an infinite amount of matter to reach light thieves, And the other question is could you explain Harry black holes, which I put on how the Universal Harry Black holes as not in the name, Harry, but H a. I r Y. This is a complicated question about doesn't matter actually fall into black holes. The issue is which frame of reference are you looking at? So if you look from far away at a black hole, you're right. If some astronaut we're falling in because time slows down the last little hair on her head Would take forever to fall in from the perspective of the faraway viewer. But from the perspective of the black hole time is perfectly normal, so she'd fall in and go to her doom and very ah, disturbing the short amount of time. So that's that's the first thing the hairy black holes have to do with. This question off. Can you tell what a black hole looks like, once its form? Because how you tell your friends from your neighbors often is by their hair. Everybody has a unique hairstyle and astronomers there one to do. Ah, do black holes have hair? Can you tell one black hole from another by some characteristics? And the answer seems to be no. That that that there is no hair to black hole, some doctor tells rotate some black holes may have a little bit of charge. But that's really about it. One black holes pretty much like the next and you you would get killed by any one of them. That followed You, Theo. Indiscriminate that way. All right, let's talk with andr. He's calling from Menlo Park and or higher on with Dr Factory. Go ahead. Hi. Hi. I'm a science streak. My dad back in the sixties, he the the guidance systems for the lunar module's landings. The moon, my favorite scientist, Stephen Hawkins. I did a paper back and 1977 for English class at Foothill College. And I was my subject matter was on black holes, so I've known black holes. So our Shar radius event horizon in the singularity. Are they three main things to a black hole?.

radical left then keeping us safe so Brian if you Democrat you really have to work to find one of these ads to encounter one of them these ads are going to be micro targeted at likely trump supporters and vice versa for democratic contenders well let's talk about the wealthy candidates on the democratic side Michael Bloomberg in Tom's tire I feel like I'm seeing a lot of their ads in places how much are they spending Bloomberg is coming on strong with thirty four million dollars on Google and Facebook Stiers spent almost twenty four million dollars there after that you see a steep drop off but analysts say you can expect this whole field of play to change dramatically once the primary in March tells us who V. democratic contender will be social media that forms have been taking a lot of heat for allowing the spread of disinformation especially in politics Twitter banned political ads completely right yeah but you know Twitter was never really a big contender in the space so you could argue that it was an easy decision for them to make you can also argue that tweets themselves from the different candidates constitute a form of free political advertising as well in Google what about Google Google is running political ads but it says it's limiting micro targeting and I should mention that hundreds of Google ads have been taken down for factual inaccuracies but only after they ran for awhile and Google got paid some folks think they're sort of speaking out of both sides of their mouth as compared to Facebook which is saying we are not going to fact check political ads in why that's a step that I think a lot of people wanted to see Facebook take you right Brian Facebook has done the least to allay concerns about bad actors using its platform to sway elections it doesn't have any restrictions on micro targeting although some people don't think that's necessarily a bad thing but the company's ever changing policies still permit politicians to make false claims not just
