Dominic operation dominic was a series of thirty one nuclear tests conducted in the pacific within operation. Dominic was a subset of eleven high altitude nuclear test. Called operation fishbowl. United states had done high altitude tests before in the nineteen fifties operation. Hard tack one. Head launched weapons as highest seventy six kilometers and they were quite large maxing out. At three point four megatons in operation argus. They detonated nuclear weapons much higher from two hundred to five hundred forty kilometers above the earth. But they were much smaller at only one point seven kilotonnes. These initial high atmosphere test raised as many questions as the answered. The report from the starfish. Prime detonation noted quote previous high altitude nuclear tests. Yucca teak orange plus the three argus shots were poorly instrumented and hastily executed despite thorough studies of the meagre data present models of these bursts. Are sketchy and tentative. These models are too uncertain to permit extrapolation to other altitudes and yields with any confidence. Thus there's a strong need not only for better instrumentation but for further tests covering a range of altitudes and yields unquote.

"The canadian space energy so super bit. What is super stands for super pressure balloon imaging telescope. it's essentially. It's an imaging system lofted forty kilometers into the stratosphere by helium balloon it will get high resolution images rivaling those of hubble which is saying something so let that simmer for a second in your brain hubble images but just using a balloon instead of a rocket now hubbell of course is the current standard right primarily. Because it's in space which is an awesome place to be for a lot of astronomy. I thought you were gonna say primarily. Because james webb still hasn't lost any day now but actually you will see that. That's not technically correct. But that's because our. Why is it such a good place to be for trying to be. And that's because our atmosphere sucks in a lotta ways. Imagine visible light right from a distant exit planet or star or a whole galaxy. That light travels for years millions of years billions of years and that light is essentially pristine for for all that time and then bam the last one point six thousands of a second as the goes to our atmosphere and it turns into a huge distorted mess. The last little bit it gets completely screwed up. So that's basically just a goofy way to say that. Yes observing lots of frequencies of electromagnetic radiation from orbit is great because the atmosphere. Doesn't you know bypassing the atmosphere feerick distortion. So it's great. it's fantastic. that's why everybody loves the hubble and that's why lots of observatories are on mountaintops right. All the good ones are on these great great mounds jay. Were really close to a bunch of them in hawaii and because that gets it up that gets them above as much of the atmosphere as possible. So what super-bid with special balloon is allowing to happen. It's like putting the telescope on a forty kilometer high mountain. That's a pretty much exactly what it's doing putting it about as high as you can get and still be kind of technically in the atmosphere now. It's called the super pressure balloon because.

These doctors got COVID-19, now they're suffering the serious, mysterious symptoms of 'long COVID'
"Hi It's Natasha. Mitchell with science friction. I'll be the first admit that as a GP price all of I was pretty skeptical of things. I certainly had sympathy for for conditions like FIBROMYALGIA. But I didn't have the empathy that I have now. I didn't understand it I. Really didn't get it. And Gosh if I could go back and speak to myself as a GP prior to all of this, I know that I would have been much better doctor then and I will hopefully be a much stop to now. As Corona virus cases explode again in the you kind across Europe today three doctors from the UK share confronting personal experiences of what's being called long covert. I have seen too many cases on nine of people not being heard not being Nessin to. That symptoms and their concerns not being validated. I've seen heartbreaking stories of people just being dismissed of seeing heartbreaking stories of people losing their jobs. And I am very lucky that I have a platform where I can speak up and try and get long covert recognizes melnace. The term long covert is being used to describe a whole cluster of symptoms and afflictions many extremely disturbing and disabling that lingering on some people after they've been infected with the SARS Cov to virus thousands across the world are now finding solidarity on social media and in virtual support groups that are popping up and long covert. To not discriminate healthy people young people, people who apparently had a mild case of covid nineteen. And every system in their bodies can be affected up until the last a week or two. The concept of long caved has been dismissed by quite a lot of people even in the medical sphere many my colleagues have been unwell since March and have really struggled to get any kind of medical inputs until the last couple of months those weren't hospitalized with the illness would just sort of left to get on with it. It's the classic thing a suspect. It might even be a bloke thing do not for long enough it will go away. Yeah. Diminish it ignore it hope it's not their. Own I another thing to worry about uh, suspect always going through people's minds and that will include medics politicians policies such as civil servants, everybody. But they will be left with the long term consequences and in terms of the total health burden that will weigh exceed whatever acute covid to us by the time of comes on. So we facing another pandemic this one silent confusing and hard to diagnose knows a pandemic of long coverted. I'm Dr Amy Small I'm thirty nine and I'm Jay P in Lothian in Scotland a gorgeous part of the world in the Scottish lowlands and before the pandemic Dr smalls life was a when I think back it was busy and chaotic and getting up at six thirty every morning and out house by seventh day and yet as a family, we were very active and very busy but it work back in February and March. I'm in colleagues were on high alert the sense of impending doom that we felt on those first few weeks moore seeing reports of huge numbers of people dying in. Italy. In just thinking gosh you know. Is that coming away at it was just really really scary I'm Dr Natalie Mcdermott I'm an academic clinical electra at King's College London and she specializes in Pediatric Infectious Diseases Dr McDermott is no stranger to deadly infections Ebola cholera now coronavirus she's been on the front line of the Mall I was working in Liberia in in the capital Monrovia in July twenty fourteen as as cases of started spread very rapidly our more queseda flowing because we had so many dead bodies but we didn't have sevices coming to pick them up so the burial teams weren't Well. They were trying their best, but they were limited as well at during that time two of my colleagues one of whom was on medical director for treatment facility they became infected with. I saw a space about thirty percent of my patients that died in those first few weeks. I was in Liberia that he percent of them were health coworkers what Natalie witnessed firsthand was hellish but going is her as a doctor she went on to do a PhD, investigating the genetics of asa sipped ability to a bowl avars disease. And when Covid nineteen heat I was working in Pediatric Infectious Diseases at Great Ormond Street Hospital. When we started to see a surge of cases of what we now who multi-system inflammatory syndrome children previously healthy children started falling very ill they come in generally unwell but looking okay and then within a few hours sometimes but maybe you set me within twenty four hours. Many of them would suddenly drop their blood pressure and they and become very touchy. It said it heart rate would become very fast at that stage it was thought children were only mildly affected by. Covid nineteen and on the whole, it seems they are but the Natalie and colleagues found all lot of them did test positive in terms of the throat swaps full cave nineteen they tested positive for antibodies to cave in nineteen either actually at the beginning of that onus or at some point Jerry net illness doctrine failing on consulting genetic pathologists to Saint Mark's hospital in Harrow in London and Sinn.

At the beginning of the pandemic back in March whiles looked pretty safe or think. To identify, cases in Wales. H. One about forty kilometers outside of me. So eastern West.

Driving the Carretera Austral, Chile
"I'd like to welcome back to the show Steph dyson who has a travel journalist, a guidebook author most recently the Moon Guide to Chile and a travel blogger at worldly adventurer dot com. Steph. Welcome back to the show. Thanks having me Chris I'm excited to be back again. Well Of Truth. I should say when I say welcome back to the show, Steph has been on the show before you have heard her talking about northern Chile, a number of episodes ago I wanNA say five years ago. Yeah I think that's correct just before you started working on a guidebook. Kissed before Ya. So this is kind of rounding out that experience because the moon guy to Chile just published. And that was a quite a long amount of time working on this guidebook but also Steph was the show a week ago and something went terribly wrong and it did not record. So I appreciate your patience but I also appreciate your expertise on Chile. When. We talk about she leave this time we're talking about and I'm going to try and pronounce it the cut. US thrall the southern. Highway. Good. That was good pronunciation. I I. See you've been working on it. We'll have to do some things right this time. What is the? astral and where would we find that in Chile? The CATTA that Australia Archie means the southern highway to give you a bit of a clue and it's in Chilean Patagonia. Now, how to guy near is the sort of slightly nebulous region because nobody's really sure if it's somewhere on his own or if it belongs to other countries a what it is, but effectively, it's a region in the very far south of South America are in between Argentina and Chile. and. The kind of thorough style is the kind of rules western section. So it's the kind of Chilean bit where she gets really narrow sort of not part of the country, and it's just before you hit very southern Patagonia West toughtested by name and the destinations that you've discussed previously only put podcast bright further north than the last show we did on Patagonia, there is a lot of Patagonia. If we look at the map there. There's a lot of Chile in terms of height, not necessarily in terms of with. Yeah it's a long country and I have children most of it and it. Pile. Will End just this road is seven, hundred, seventy miles or twelve, hundred and forty kilometers. So when we talk about One week itinerary, you're going to start us not at the top and go all the way to the bottom where you're gonNA start, US. Yeah so I always recommend people planning Patagonia is starting inbound Maceda says about halfway down the cutter that'll style just outside this sort of biggest town in the area it's Koi Heike and it's an apple that where you can fly into directly in Santiago. So it makes it a really great destination to start your trip. and Are we gonNA do anything around the airport flying are where we going to start our actual trip? I would recommend picking up a call. Then you don't need a four wheel drive to cut that Australia just needs sort of reason, the high clearance because most of it is now paves. The big for the locals I'll tell you that hasn't that hasn't been paved before but yet you're gonNA jump in your car and you can head south for a couple of hours to via settled gusty steel, which really tiny little town outside of a national park. You talk about outside of national. Park. The one thing as we talk about this pretty much this whole way there are national parks everywhere I think. I'd made the analogy that if you started at the top of this highway in you're a squirrel, you could probably get to the southern tip of South America in jump from tree to tree within a national park. I'm not sure the tree is correct but the national parks is almost accurate. This just a whole lot of national parks here in southern Chile. Yeah, it's actually what the government did. Last year would start it up the root of their parks re to the parks. On, it's about two, thousand, four, hundred kilometers I believe I'm connecting pretty much port Lamont which is the very northern tip Patagonia all the way down to Cape Horn, which has its own national pockets the bit at the very bottom of South America's islands that people go. Because the sale is used around the whole and and it was a big deal because white windy down that. Square yes. Yes. There's now they sort of route to the pox. It's kind of this ingenious could you can't actually drive between all of them, but the capital style does opportunity to actually connect quite a number of them.

"We have reopened. You know what's one of the first things to reopen even before the so-called relaxation of the lockdown thousands and thousands of liquor shops. Maybe you know we're big advice that go on a liquid diet. I don't know but you'll open thousands of liquor shops and the QS for those can be up to two kilometers making a mockery of all the physical distance stuff. But this is the way we are thinking. This is the way we are behaving. So it's really I mean you've lost one hundred and twenty two million jobs. People are terribly hungry. You have seventy seven million tons of grain piled up and you're thinking of creating atonal from it so we really are the my migrants and others also. I didn't terrible terrible state. I also want to say that. It's not just the microbes. See we in the People's Archive of little India. We didn't discover Labor migrants on March twenty. Sixth after the lockdown like the rest of the corporate media did we cover them three hundred sixty five days a year. We know who they are. We know that personally as you said when you were introducing the subject that you know you you got a guy to say that we are we are. We are being beaten. We're running out of water. We'RE RUNNING OUT OF FOOD. Amy Those earlier. When migrants walked they did walk long distances even earlier to go home they would have these stalls. Little bus stands and stuff along the way where they would stop work for the evening on their way to the next forty or fifty kilometers earn their way to the next sixty kilometers to the next. Bustan where they work in peace. Talk all those tea. Stalls and restaurants on the highway are now closed under the lockdown. So you're GONNA have a lot of debts from non-core ailments old Indian Trent's like diarrhea dehydration hunger exhaustion. These sort of things are happening when they you know. Let me give you one example. One example the case of young John Lewis a twelve year old girl indigenous person who had gone with a party of people from her village not a parents but with others to work in the chilly fields in the Red Chili fields of the neighboring State of Tonga. When the lockdown came and everyone was thrown off their jobs and their work John Lew walked one hundred and forty kilometers a twelve year old girl. She walked one hundred and forty kilometers in three days. I spent a hell of a lot of my time walking about the countryside. I've never done one hundred forty kilometers and three days and nights and she felt did sixty kilometers from her home in exception and from muscle footy. Okay how many John. Lewis have been condemned the migrants to when be bringing a curfew that says you can only individuals movement of individuals strictly forbidden between seven PM and seven air. How many more John Lewis of pushing over the edge? The entire of what's going on is so utterly barbarous and shows what we have a made of people do let me let me tell you a little aside about the seventy seven million tons of food. Do you know how much that is? I mean the kind of bags. We packet if economists like Gijon dress calculated fifteen years ago because we've had that surplus for more than fifteen twenty years that if the seventy seven million tons of food grain. If the sex were laid in a row you could reach the moon and back twice. It's twice the distance to the moon. So you could go and come back and you'd still have some more grain leftover. Yeah you could easily. If you chose meet the People's hunger you could do that now. But the food distribution system under neoliberalism has not functioned. The stocks have not functioned to keep prices. Low their functioning to keep prices up..

ISIS leader al-Baghdadi believed to have been killed in Syria
"First the US presidents Donald Trump is to make a statement to the White House later today which she's trumpeted very much after reportedly ordering a operation against the leader of the Islamic state group Abu Bakr al Baghdadi a short while ago the Reuters news agency reported that two Iraqi security force sources had informed it that Abu Bakar about Daddy had been killed inside Syria faith Abdollah hard reports from Baghdad for the British newspaper the guardian it seems this time it's been confirmed that she has been killed act should be in Syria there are some reports also that you had detonated a suicide bomb when he was surrounded by special forces but as you say it's been reported killed before but I think I do think there is a sense that it is more critical to start you have covered extensively the rise and fall of Islamic state maybe you could remind us please of Abu Bakr al Baghdadi significance well pull out meaning two thousand fourteen I remember being in Baghdad in summer and there was the sensation thought this was an existential threat to at all I mean I remember people fleeing Buck that because ISIS units reach thirty forty kilometers north of the city and since then it was a huge phenomenal struggle for Iraqi security forces the Iraqi on terror terrorism unit specially who food for every single meter from bus with the most about that until the liberation of mostly true years ago I mean I was in the bottle of morsel request we'd we'd be crazy I mean car bombs drones at times they were so I do more driven committed to fighting the members of Islamic state up until days before the final defeat they were fighting in the old streets of most of so for both the dead you to die to be killed is a huge news for those who fight against the Islamic state however I would like to also that it's been two years since the diffuse the actual defeat of the Islamic state the president's aids has shrunk into tiny little pockets I was speaking to some security officers two weeks ago they were telling me that lacked in in the dozens the number in the dozens so it is not the biggest news in Iraq at the moment although you know it it has a huge impact and president trump will later try to maximize that that impact if reports of his death a true he will claim it as a personal victory I mean of course trump will claim is as a person victory however the actual victory has been achieved two years ago by Iraqi forces coalition forces of course that supported them the paramilitaries at fort against Islamic state the Kurds all these different elements to fight against Islamic state was a huge box of tax rates from Easton senior to in order to add up to west and doesn't suck at all again I would like to stress something I know it's a huge news of the world at the moment the best of both of you but but that has been dead for almost two years practically in the streets of Iraq in the cities of Iraq and also for if I may speak in some sector in terms in for the soonest available at one point so the Islamic state as a form of liberation from the control of Bucks ducks from the shackles metal box that they were the first who who denounced the Islamic state so go to the streets of more so than ask about Islamic state Abu Bakr bus let you and you will hear insults for hours and hours yes and as you've mentioned the Iraqi capital has plenty of other things to think about at the moment as does the rest of Iraq many deaths recently an anti government protest in a sentence of to just sum up the strength of feeling that before you go with you absolutely I mean you can hear the sounds of tear gas grenades up until now yesterday's or street fights between demonstrates as the police force the biggest news in out off at the moment is the demonstrations against the prime minister against the whole political elite and the anti corruption demonstrations and at the same time your house of very troubling news coming from the south of the country of the beginning of the clashes between Shia forces and we have to remember that these Shia forces where created to fight the Islamic state two years after the defeat of the Islamic state no D. Shi up forces well equipped well well financed by Iran and others on now fighting among themselves we know the story with seen it all of the Middle East before Hey if Abdel are hard speaking from Baghdad when news of the death of the I. S. leader if it's confirmed that would have been huge two years ago he suggested it's not now how big will the news be world why do you think Jonathan steel I think it will be quite big let's look at the analogy with some of bin laden I mean he was killed some more than almost ten years after the nine eleven attacks never stood a very big story and the Taliban have been toppled so he was also out of power a judge has been for the last two three years he was more of a global nature more of a global figure in the course of a serious review S. revenge they wanted revenge for nine eleven or stop the same thank god I got he's killed more Europeans and Iraqis and Syrians than Americans so it is a different kind of story to Bristol talking about the iris resurgence or the fact that he really is dead I asked my north resurgence quite the same way to support and which would be comforting to many perhaps to foreign policy experts within the White House particularly yes that's certainly too but how how big is this for Donald Trump trump has been arguing over whether or not the I. S. is resurgent and people who opposed his pullout from Syria and send you con to it because I.

"And welcome to today's edition of the briefing with me Andrew Muller it is difficult to conjure a grammar prospect than having in your future decided on an agreement between Turkish President Richard Type One and Russian President Vladimir Putin such however is exactly the outlook facing the key words in the area of northern Syria they had come to Coleridge Uva and who until very recently considered themselves rock-solid allies off and perhaps therefore protected by the United States Turkey and Russia have agreed to what they call oversee what they call a withdrawal of Kurdish forces the Kurds IC- matters differently I'm joined by Paul Rogers a professor of peace studies at Bradford University who has written extensively on the war in Syria and Hannah Lucinda Smith Istanbul respondent for the Times how in Istanbul first of all what do we know about how Russia and Turkey expect this deal to work because on the face of it it would seem to require an amount of cooperation from the Kurds good morning well yeah I think the first thing that we should say about the deal that was struck in Saudi last night this is hugely more details than either of the deals struck between Turkey and the US previously on the safe zone finds exactly where the safe zone is going to be how exactly it's going to be patrolled in court Rodney as you say most of those areas is going to be cleared of Kurdish fighters guide to be patrolled either by acids and Russian forces or also with Turkish forces as well joint patrols now of course this completely relies on on the Kurds agreeing to this agreeing to withdraw from his areas but quite frankly they don't really have much other choices they turned to ask that assu weeks ago when Turkey I launches assault there was a military memorandum of understanding signed between the two sides that point and to be honest they really hunger and yet the cause to play it's difficult see how they have any leeway to oppose this agreement just to follow that up is clear then at least on the in terms of this agreement where they intend or expect the Kurds to go now all we know is that they're going to be goes out of an area generally ten kilometers along the border apart from certain towns also from the towns of manage and tell Ra fats to the west of the area and everyone is going to be pulled back thirty clumps away from that border now obviously that's a small sex Shen in in kind of pure land mass terms of what the the Kurdish dominated forces controlled in Syria but it does also include almost all of their main towns this is the commish that factor capital falls outside of this arrangement it's unclear exactly in the long term how that's going to be trolled. The moment is a mixture of Kurdish regime fighters but all the other towns on the border that's where the huge bulk of the population in Syria Lebanon redan clear at that at this point where if they choose lead times they civilians are going to go Bring Paul Rogers in at this point Paul how do you expect this to play out because it would appear that militarily at least the the military wing of the Syrian democratic forces the white PG they don't really have any options Jackie and Russia both huge well-equipped military's the Kurds have very little heavy weaponry they certainly don't have an air force will they make any attempt at all do you imagine to defend what they have I think is unlikely that they will do any defense in the conventional sense in the slightly longer term may be the equivalent of of Salter Grid warfare but in the short term degree very much that they're in a very weak position I think the point that hunters was making very significant in terms of the out of control the techs are prepared to ensure if not control themselves with a mixture of Syrian and Russian forces so also saying that Turkey really like is to be able to control the area right across the border Syria from the the whole sort of length of the border winches many hundreds Columbus the area that they do control in the West because of their own associates is quite big what remains is something like four hundred twenty kilometers this particular agreement appears to cover about one hundred and twenty kilometers Ms Hammet says this is an area where the Kurds each populations particularly concentrated for the still nearly something like two thirds of the total area which isn't under this agreement we simply don't know what's going to happen there but in direct answer to your question I think it is unelected the that's what offer any major resistance to this at least in the short term but just to follow that up poll should we therefore assume that agreement that was struck between the code and the Syrian regime for all that was ever worth is now formerly a dead letter it seems to be yes I mean if you look at this in a wider sense trump's decision to Morris withdraw the troops and Syria although they've not been large they've been pretty significant we tend to forget an addition to these troops what nobody talks about in polite circles is the presence of question number special forces including it suspected special forces from Britain and France that have involved in trying to prevent escape of the Isis fighters they haven't been very successful in that at present because there are so many isis fighters in some of the detention camps but from the Russian perspective that this is really very good for them I mean their overall plan is to have as much influence a series they can for minimum cost on the way they played the air war was very rough very tough but not huge costly a while they now seeing is the will be actually be some Russian forces even quite small a nominal in these zones as part of the sort of protection patrols which means that they will be extending their influence geographically very little costing sells out of that expect it is pretty Kaputin and one would say that in that respect is also good for the United States how does it look like this is playing the one domestically is is it proving popular with Turks generally this idea that I and his pitches basically two fold that he has cleared what he described observe terrorist menace from away from Turkey's borders and he has now opened up spicing which Turkey can repatriate some of the millions of Syrians who have fled into the country since two thousand eleven sure I think it's very important burdwan he manages to to spin every get series of victory at home you know I think we shouldn't forget that a major part of his reason for launching this operation in the first place was to kind of Rowson domestic supporting tools to deflect attention away from so many other things that have been plaguing in this year the economy's going terribly he suffered major losses in local elections at this yes now taking the Turkish front pages this morning and you know should remind you the only sort of the Turkish media is controlled by one and his allies the reaction to the deal last night is a lot more kinds of restraints than was the reaction to the deal with Mike Pence last Thursday after that deal the headlines thank took his one and Turkish victory now the much more restrained they're saying the Terry corridor has been committed to history so there's a lot more restrained language I think it's almost certain that presentation on even though he's got nowhere near what he was setting out to get when he first started talking about launching this unilateral campaign a few weeks ago you know he was talking about taking a stretch of border four hundred forty kilometers long he's got far less than that but I mean certainly he's going to into a victory he's going to say the state of Rosia varies name more the Thai have got rid the terror threat from our border and this is another victory for me and my policies all the the Syrian conflict which is now approaching the end of its first decade has proved ceaselessly in depressingly inventive in finding ways to perpetuate itself but bearing that in mind do we at least see some outline of what a final settlement might look like because isn't this Turkey coming around ever for the to the idea that Bashar Al Assad has basically one that he will remain president of Syria I think that's true a and I would agree generally that this is being a good period for a set himself and his regime not least because the Kurds are having to accept that he can be a kind of counter to the increase Turkish influence the one big question remains though is what this does to the other kinds of militia groups are not much talk about the ones in North West Syria in Italy province but more the Isis elements and here there is a lot happening although against very difficult piece out precisely what the Americans of taken about a thousand of their troops from Syria into western Iraq but one report from the Pentagon this morning suggested this is a temporary there's thousand we'll be withdrawn entirely so it makes it to the American seem to be persisting in trump's wished rashly with morton withdrawal more fully than it is his phone one can say extremely good news in perhaps the the group that may benefit most is actually isis itself who far from going away I'll still there regenerating in Syria and in Iraq and the connection here is they still had many hundreds property several thousands of their toughest paramilitaries in detention one sort or another in the in the powder Syria those are really coming out back into circulation it's very similar to what happened in two thousand twelve thirteen with the so-called operation breaking the walls when what was the remnants of the old HQ I in Iraq managed to break out many that toughest paramilitaries from Iraqi prisons now it's not so much breaking out now because these went so well protected this time but it's the same kind of thing playing at a smaller scale and it's gone who almost certainly boost isis overall now that has an impact in Iraq or serious very difficult to tell but that's the one unknown in this current situation ought to come back to you finally a major part of President Prospectus that the the P. G. R. A. Anti-kurdish terrorist organization has been the alleged relationship with the Peak Aka the Turkey the Kurdish rather organization which has been waging war against Turkey for decades we'll doin be anticipating or nervous about any potential response to this deal from the PKK well I think the listening to say as you know the the the links between the what PG and the and the PK care real I mean when I first started reporting on the war PG in late two thousand thirteen you know well before they had even heard much indefinitely before before they go US backing I mean they were very very open about the fact Turkey ideologically that clearly linked to the to the PK K..

We definitely had plenty of thunderstorms and stuff but I found that at this was the kind of the easiest flying weather of the three that I've done but the the the the pace of the of the teams I have found just an incre so much faster than it was in my first one in twenty fifteen I mean in two thousand fifteen made so many more mistakes and still got the Monaco in good time in a better place than this time but this time I felt like you know at least for me.

Former Astronaut On Watching For Life-Destroying Objects From Space
"Meteor exploded over the Bering Sea between Russia and Alaska at the end of last year with the energy of ten atomic bombs. It happened with no warning whatsoever. And we only just learned of it. Former astronaut at Lou keeps a close eye on objects that might collide with the earth. He's the executive director of b six twelve in organization that works to protect the earth from asteroid impacts and other planetary defense issues. Thank you so much joining us. Thank you. So we only just learned of this meteor because NASA only just now put up the information on its website. That's pretty worrying I must say, well, actually, the incident was observed right away. Right. It's just that. It was observed not by NASA. But originally buy a network of sensors used to detect. Atomic bomb. Explosions are nuclear weapons tests around the world. Typically, how much notice do space agencies observatories get about media, asteroid strikes, the typical notice for asteroid impacts on earth is zero zero. And that's because the vast majority of asteroids are still untracked this particular asteroid was quite small. It was only about thirty feet across and the vast vast majority of asteroids that's mall are not tracked this landed in the sea. But if it had landed somewhere else on land in how much damage could it have caused us to give us some perspective to give an example, the kind of thing that can happen just about six years ago in twenty thirteen we had an asteroid a little bit larger that exploded near the Russian city of Chelyabinsk, and it's shock wave. Blew out. Many many thousands of windows in the Russian in Chelyabinsk collapsed. I I believe it was seven buildings and sent the bout fifteen hundred people to the hospital. And that explosion was luckily about forty kilometers away from the city. So had that happened over the city could have been quite bad. So you were an astronaut and now you founded this organization keeping an eye out for life destroying objects from space. What's the connection there? Why did you decide to found this organization after you went out into space? Well, the interesting thing about looking at the earth and the moon from the vantage point of being out there in space for a long period of time. You you look at the craters on the moon, and you look at the earth, and you look back and forth. And you realize that there are more craters or they're more impacts on earth than there have been on the moon. You just don't see the craters as much because we have an atmosphere, and we have water, and continents and weather and so on that race older craters, but the fact of the matter is that the earth does get hit more than the moon, and we do have the technology to both find and track these asteroids to. Deflect them felt to me at a number of my founders that that is something that we ought to do because we do know that the earth has been hit in the past by very large asteroid impacts that have changed the the evolution of life here on this planet. In fact, we humans today are here because an asteroid killed off all the dinosaurs. So what can be done to protect the planet. What would you like to see happen briefly? Well, the first thing you have to do is simply mapping the locations of all the asteroids where they are. And where they're going because that will tell you, which if any of these things are a danger to earth once you know, that an asteroid is gonna hit the earth say ten twenty thirty years from now. And that's that would be the goal decades of events notice. You only need to give a tiny nudge to an asteroid to keep it from the earth. And in fact, necessary about to testify on an asteroid. It's coming nowhere near their show. How you can simply run into it with a small spacecraft, and that that is sufficient in most case. To give the tiny impulse you need to make an asteroid miss the earth. If you have enough notice former astronaut at loom, executive director of B six twelve thank you so much. Thank you for your

Could California Get an Autobahn?
"Today's episode was brought to you by the new Capital One saver card with which you can earn four percent cashback on dining and entertainment. That means four percent on checking out that new restaurant everyone's talking about and four percent on watching your team win at home. You'll also earn two percent cashback at grocery stores and one percent on all other purchases. Now when you go out you cash in what's in your wallet? Welcome to brain stuff from how stuff works. Hey, brain stuff, Lauren Bogle bomb here. Germany is known for several awesome things including veer brats. And of course, the autobahn bundles Audubon as it's known in Germany is really just if federal highway system there, but to visitors the allure of the autobahn is the speed limit or lack of one cars can top two hundred forty kilometers per hour during normal conditions on this famed freeway that's about one hundred fifty miles per hour. And now, a California legislator is proposing. A Bill that could make the state home to what is being called the American autobahn John Morlock, the Republican state Senator from Orange County introduced state Bill three nineteen in February of two thousand nineteen to relieve traffic congestion along interstate five and state route ninety nine according to the proposed plan both roadways would get new lanes. One northbound and one southbound drivers in the new lanes would not have to abide by a speed limit though, the existing sixty five miles per hour. Limit would remain in effect in the. The existing lanes that's about one hundred and five kilometers per hour. The idea also could provide an alternative California's controversial long-delayed and possibly canceled high speed rail project the proposal comes on the heels of California governor Gavin Newsom announcement that the bullet train as planned is too expensive at an estimated cost of seventy seven billion dollars and would take too long to build. There are no official cost estimates for the Audubon Bill, but in February Senator Morlock told the Los Angeles Times it could cost about three billion dollars. He also said the money would come from the states cap and trade program which requires companies to offset pollution by purchasing credits. If plans move forward the American auto Bahn would be constructed along major freeways with Bela Bach area, which is about eighty miles or one hundred twenty nine kilometers north of Los Angeles at the southern point in Sacramento or Stockton. At the northern end that means theoretically vehicles travelling north at one hundred miles per hour. In the unrestricted lane could make the trip from Sacramento. Tila Beck in about three hours coin that Dr takes over four hours well over depending on traffic. Aside from improving drive times for those along that route the authors of the Bill claim it would also help reduce congestion, which would in turn decrease greenhouse gas emissions from vehicles stuck idling for that reason. The Bill specifies that funding should come from California's greenhouse gas reduction fund which regularly supports transportation and transit projects that reduce pollution. Critics point out. However, the missions go up at high speeds, so encouraging people to drive faster means there wouldn't be any net reduction in pollution, in fact, Bill maga- Vern a spokesperson for the coalition for clean air told SF gate that the net reduction in emissions theory is ridiculous. In addition to the pollution, concerns. Critics are also worried about the risks. To drivers Maureen vocal a spokeswoman for the national safety council told USA today that numerous studies demonstrate that Wednesday's raised speed limits. They can expect an increase in traffic fatalities statistics from the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration show that in two thousand seventeen speeding was a factor. In twenty six percent of all traffic fatalities that accounts for nearly ten thousand deaths. Several states across the US have increased speed limits. For instance, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, South Dakota, Texas, Utah and Wyoming allow drivers to travel eighty miles per hour on certain highways and Texas allows eighty-five miles per hour along a specific stretch of state highway one thirty that's up to about one hundred and thirty seven kilometers per hour. However, the current maximum speed limit in California is still seventy miles per hour about one hundred thirteen kilometers per hour. With some stretches along the proposed Audubon. Route a little bit lower. Californian's shouldn't get too excited. Though, yet the Bill has a long way before ever becoming law and may never get there. If it passes the vote in the states house and Senate it must then be approved by governor Newsom. For contrast Germany's autobahn covers seven thousand five hundred miles.
