"Of incredible nature, right? It's a little bit like a solar eclipse. So I'm going to get up tomorrow morning and try and figure out how to look to the east past all the condos. The surrounding and space. That's a condo. Yeah, well, there's a lot of that here. And space dot com just announced their seeking images taken by us the readers. So if you do find something that you like and you make a happy snap that turns out, well, you can send it to space photos at space dot com partner in the podcast. That's really, really cool. Isn't it? Oh, and if you can't see it, it's online. So you just do a search for planetary game. I remember when you see the moon and Venus align a lot, right? You see the two of them kind of like two little stars hanging in the sky. Venus is the brightest you had Jupiter next. And so I remember when my daughter was little, getting her up and said, look, there's the moon, and that's Venus. Which is good for about three minutes, right? So can I it's funny? Maybe it's a particular bond and father and daughter have. But to this day, 25 years later, she remembers it. She'll bring it up. Remember that night you got me up to see. This is a good thing to do with your kids. It gives them it's great. Yeah. And I used to take my son out to meteor shower, and he still remembers and asks, when are we going out to see a meteor shower? It's a great bonding. A desert of the mountains and yeah. So the best time is quiet evening, right before dawn is when you'll see the most stars. Go online and look at what you're going to be looking for because that'll give you some idea because it's not exactly. I mean, there's other things up there. Yeah, but you can find there's a good guy that NASA for viewing Griffith observatory website also has a good guide. So it gives you an image of what to expect. And if you have one of them, your phones like the pixel 6 that does ASTRO photography. Get it all set up and get a nice shot and send it to space dot com. Hosts a show called this week in space with Tarek Malik of space dot com you can hear it right here on our twit network twit TV slash TW IS. This week in space. Thank you, Ron. Thank you. Now I have to hang up on you quickly. Okay, so that we got dick coming, right? Yeah. All right. Have a great week..

"Good morning, everyone. Those we take a live look at this majestic shot of Griffith Observatory this morning. There are some areas that could see some patchy fog as you head outside the door temperatures up and down the coast still fairly cool 60 in Oxnard 62 in the L. A, based in 65, Ontario, and 57 in Temecula. Let's talk about the 10 Day trend and how things are about to change tomorrow. We're looking at a high of 85. But Thursday Friday across the area L. A area will see temperatures in the nineties 87 by Saturday and then cooling down once again to start out the month on Friday, September 3rd. So here's a look at some of your highs for today. Lake Isabella 91 El Monte 85 73 degrees in Santa Monica 92 in Pomona. 84 in your Belinda 85 in Fullerton 89 for Chino 92 in Victorville. As you can see areas like Xperia Victorville Apple Valley could see some strong wind gusts for today. Not too crazy. Just temperatures in the 30 mile per hour range along the coast. Look for high of 75 some hazy conditions as well. Saint Gabriel Valley today 80 five's and patchy Areas of morning. Low clouds and fog, with temperatures reaching up to 94 on Thursday as you can see Mountain area temperatures 77 degrees 82 by Friday. Now that monsoonal moisture very slight chance in the extended forecast could impact the mountains, the desserts and, of course, the high desert in particular, where we're seeing some strong winds in the triple digits are back. Starting on Thursday. That's the latest on your forecast where I'm walking the line now back to ginger chain in the traffic center, looking sharp, too, looking sharp, and we actually have a little bit of good news. We're going to get to that in just a second. But let's take you over to look at what you can expect for your ride this morning along.

"Ribian is delaying. Its reveal or launch or delivery of its first vehicles. They say a month but in this article from electric. When i hear that. I kind of think it's been a hard day's night when you hit the spring through sorry. I didn't have my headphones. Mel's here by the way to see you know to say something funny. So ribian has confirmed that the are won. T is going to calm a monthly or not this month june but in july. They're going to make their first delivery but no significant deliveries until twenty twenty two. So i guess they're gonna trickle them out the pulling tesla on us and they have three battery packs. It sounds like they're going to be doing the same thing. As tesla delivering the four hundred plus mile. And the three hundred plus mile versions. Those have one hundred and eighty kilowatt-hours and hundred and thirty five kilowatt hours respectively. And i mean it's a great truck i'd love. I'd love to go camping in that thing. I'd love to go camping period. But i would definitely love to go camping in the region. That's pretty sweet. I guess it would just depend on. Where again if we're talking about what is its capabilities are people are going to be moving taking suspension out i. I don't know what it just camping camping like normal forest road camping. Not like over landing type campings overlending peop- people are very excited about ribian and i hope they do well. They all need to do well right. That's the whole point. And that's why i asked the question. About how many vehicles tesla can make because washington is replacing. The fleet cars is thirty million vehicles a year. Thirty million vehicles per year general for cars will last longer though so you have to start shaving that down a bit. Hopefully yeah. we'll figure it out. But i mean i think that's the benefit of electric as they might be less over time and then autonomy there might be less overtime. God we're not gonna talk about stop. You brought it up. I can see the look on your face. Don't look at me like that. Okay what are you doing. You're in the room. Okay all right. Oh my thing else about the riviera. I mean yeah. It's it's exciting. But like how delayed is the ribian winded we go. When did i break the review in a bit launch event up at the griffith park observatory. He was like at least two years ago. Twenty nine hundred before the twenty thousand nine l. a. auto show november. Like something like that. Yeah snap. I can still hear it. Oh my god like the just my brain like when it happened. I was like oh my god. I can't believe. I groped truck. I guess a handed. You missed that one so i can recap it. So we went to the the riviera event at the griffith observatory and they were like. Don't touch the truck but people were touching drunk and they're all kinds of thing and they had the franck of the trunk open and had these little metal hooks in it after. I don't your your garbage bag. What shopping time. But i was like. What's this for. And i like flipped on open and it just went and like the. It was basically like a grocery hook in like a plastic enclosure and just snapped the whole thing out. It was all like three d. printed like prototype and the auto show is literally the next day and the.

"Sure look like you have photo me. Well, it might have been. That's the thing you know, Ride. There's no question people are seeing. Strange looking craft out their eyes, Triangular shaped you name it And who knows where they're coming from? I mean, if you listen to the show at any great length, people were realized We do a lot of UFO programs and stuff that they could be coming from other planetary systems. Other universes who knows, But people have seen strange things out there well, and I keep hoping I will. The wildest thing I ever saw was a couple of huge fireballs and that massive meteor shower in 1966, which was just sensational, but it was just a natural phenomenon. Um, there are, of course, those recent releases that we're finding made official from the Navy of the Tick Tack, UFO's and so forth. And like we were discussing earlier. You know, I've read a lot of both sides of that argument. They both have compelling things to say The one thing I do remember from my time up to Griffith Observatory, because, of course we You know, we were manning the phones. Part of the time I was working there, So we got a lot of calls this nature and it is really hard for most people, even seasoned military people, sometimes to judge Size the distance of something that's east they see in the sky. It's It's tough, you know, because, of course, your brain is drawing the analogy of okay. If that's an airplane, I expected to be this big person besides the lights and how fast moving all that So it's hard to tell what this stuff is and like we're discussing earlier. There's some thinking that these may actually be foreign operators, depending on where they are particularly off the coast lines, but I just don't know. I gotta tell you interesting story of scenes to what I have to say Ere UFO's because I don't know what they were or are, But I'll tell you interesting story. Rod senior producer Tom Dan.

"So it wasn't like you would automatically drive by me, Holly Boob. But when someone explains it to you, it makes sense. And any time somebody pranks the Hollywood sign I applaud their effort. They did it in the middle of the afternoon to Oh, my God, That's such a hike up there, too. You have to get to it from underneath because you can't get over the fence. Yeah, I understand. You have to hike from below and it's like very, very challenging. Jeez. Well, they made it. They did it. They got arrested. But anyway, it's I don't think it's his holly boob anymore. Today, but not the first time. So then I did a quick little dive into other times it's happened. This has happened two times in 1976. It first happened. Holly Weed. Oh, yeah. Okay. Holly weed that was a hit on the shoulder by a It was a 21 year old Cal State Northridge art student named Danny. Fine, Good. And and he did that, And it was kind of funny. They did it a few years ago again when Marijuana got legalized in California. Gonna fund money? Yeah, surprising that that ambition, right? Uh, just talking about getting out. You know, 1983. They played the Army Navy football game, which is, you know, big deal. Each year, it was played on the West Coast for the first time ever back in 83. And so in celebration of the game, which was happening at the Rose Bowl, a group of Navy midshipmen covered a few the letters of the sign and tried to make it read. Go, Navy. They didn't actually end up covering up all of the unused letters. So wound up reading goal. Navy D S O maybe not. Mission accomplished Gold everything. Let me ask you this because I've never been tol Los Angeles or that area of California. You around there? Oh, my God. I would love that when we go away, Never trip. Okay? Never mind. Um, I am curious. Is it visible from like a highway? Is it If you're at it, like at a restaurant, getting out of all kinds of places, you could see it on the freeway. You can see it and a whole bunch of different places in in Hollywood. Of course, If you're hiking, you get these unbelievable views. There's the L. A The Griffith Observatory has a lovely view of it, But you can see it's you know, up on the hill so you could see a bunch of places. What's funny about it, though, is There are a few strategic places where you can really see it, and it's it's framed nicely, for instance, right above the Kodak Theater, Africa what they call it now, But you know, the Kodak Theater where the Oscars there is a There's like a shopping mall in that same facility. And you go up one of the stairs, and there's sort of imagine stairs coming up from both sides. And then they meet in the middle on this platform right through in the middle of the small, There's like an orange Julius to your right. And then when you're standing on this platform, it is perfectly framed. The Hollywood sign is right. And like the buildings all cut away just how they need to And then you see it another way. So there it's strategic and the architects knew that there's another street down the way where you just randomly turn left. It's a random hill with normal houses in Hollywood. And it's boom right there..

"What's going on in that arena, then later on words going to talk to an expert on the afterlife on coast to coast, So we got a mix of for just about everybody. By the way, I asked Dr Krupp, he's the director of the Griffith Observatory. And I said, What's the biggest polluter in our solar system? And he said, By far it's the sun. Really? That's an interesting take. Burning off. Gas is all day 24 hours a day, but sure is so if we get turn that down a little, maybe we could take care of global warming. Let's just hope it doesn't burn out. No kidding. It's gonna get big and destroy us one day, but we'll be gone. I used to go home as a kid and cry when my physics teacher would tell us that my dad said George, it's five billion years. Don't worry about it. All right. All right. I'll be listening. Thanks, man. All right, there he goes. George story and coast to coast. We got some good e mails here on how to take care of this rat from Lisa. Mice and rats love peanut butter. Put being a peanut butter on a rat trap. I bet you catch him. All right? That's Nancy knuckler. Here's one from is a good one guy from Richie Perez. Use hard dog food. The hot glue gun. And hot glue the dog to the trap. Get me up. I do this for a living. I can help you catch this 30 Red. That's pretty cool. Here's another one. If you have a rat If you could pass along this this economy by mothballs by a couple of boxes of golf balls and just throw him all over the attic problem solved. It's also works for raccoons, possums mice. Anything crawls in your attic. The smell of the mothballs is too much for them. Too much for them to handle, especially because these animals relies so heavily on their sense of smell. Ding freaking dong from Steve. Here's one from a fireman mark. The fireman. Him talk handle into going into your addict. The rat will leave on his own within 10 minutes. They have standards to alright. Handle takes a shot.

How many different Co Vered cells were killed today because of the sun, I billions, maybe trillions, maybe quadrillions. It's out there in the sun and give that vitamin D India. Tell all that covert beautiful day for that It's going to be I spits out there. Yeah, Spencer, and it's gonna be a great weekend for it as well. So get out there. Um, You know, Dr Ray says sunblock is great, but when you use sun block it also blocks the rays that kill the virus. So you may wanna leave photo tiny little patch open so the sun can get him. I always go back and forth, you know, is it? Is it worse toe Put sunblock on or too much? I don't know. You know, because if you put sunblock on it blocks Those, you know the rays that killed the disease, But if you don't put it on, you could get it and get skin cancer. So I don't know. So I think, Dong I think, right, Dong Yeah. Alright, I hot record heat today. And if you're outside all you felt that man, it was like 90 something in the valley. Oh, boy. Let's get into it. Here we go. Look at the calendar, and you really don't think fire danger this time of year and you don't think it's January? These numbers look like we're in the middle of summer right here. But, Yeah, we're looking at those eighties and nineties and today we saw a lot more records breaking compared to yesterday. So yesterday Maria also broke a record topping out in the low nineties. Today it tied an old time. Hi. Coming in at 94 degrees. Wow. 94 degrees in camera. Right. Here's why that number is strange because it was 94. It might be 90 again over the weekend, so 90 foreign camera But on Tuesday The high in camera. Rio is supposed to be 62 degrees and then A week from today. Ah, one week from top day. Hi is going to be 57 degrees in the valley. The high 57 degrees. And the low 43 rain on Friday and Saturday of next week. Unbelievable. All right, let's talk to what my one of my favorite guests. We've had him on The show Billion times I love when he comes on, is the director of the Griffith Observatory. Is that his doctor? Crump, Doctor, How are you, sir? I am. Well, thank you and thinking about that rain. I think you should be going into meteorology. Hey, Thanks, man. I appreciate that might be more money in that, you know? Yeah, I'm not sure. Dr Weir. Dr. Krupp. Krupp is with us. We heard something today. That was kind of odd, and it's been news has been leaking out over the last couple of weeks. Then again, there are other websites that are reporting that this is nothing new. They were getting radio signals from the moon. It is the moment it's not our mon. It's one of Jupiter's moons, and it's got 79 moons. But this is the biggest one. In fact, this is the biggest moon in the solar system. It's called Ganymede and we have picked up radio signals from it before, and there has been another detection. But this is natural radio emission all kinds of objects in the universe. Emit radio light, just like they emit regular like that Arise Sea. Rate s so there's no way that it could be an old defunct radio station from a billion years ago. If it is they, you know, it's going to be a very bad top 40 list. I'm sure they know the radio light is really quite natural. All kinds of objects, including the sun. Shed this stuff. What's really strange about this radio light is that it comes as you said from a moon, which which doesn't seem like quite the right place. But the reason that's happening is that that moon, unlike most moons, including our own has AH, strong magnetic field of the Earth has a magnetic field, of course, and we're grateful for that. Jupiter has a strong magnetic field. But so does this this moon of Jupiter's Ganymede, and that's probably because it's got a liquid iron core inside of it, which we have to and that the movement of that iron that fluid iron helps create the magnetic field. When we when we see asteroids, you know, flying around space is that the result of a big explosion like a star exploding whereto asteroids come from No perfectly great question. And when I was growing up good question. Yeah, really? Is it? Well, in fact, though, Yeah, it's even better question because we kind of know the answer. We used to think that maybe it was this and maybe it was that like an exploded planet. Very popular notion. Um, you know, maybe 50 60 years ago, but now it's certain that that is just debris left over from the solar system, which originally was a huge Which cloud of gas and dust and debris that gradually condensed into the sun and into the planets that orbit the sun and into the other objects that are there and because of the way the objects formed and are distributed. There are places where the material really couldn't get collected. And certainly the asteroid belt, which is between Mars and Jupiter, so it's farther out from the sun than than Mars is. That that area just never could be swept up into up any other planet. And there's not really enough out there even to make a very good plan it there. If you've got all the asteroids pulled together, probably be less than the moon. And are asteroids. Is that a really dense material? It would be really heavy. No, it most of the asteroids are rocky material, and it's not even clear that all of them are the kind of thing you could easily stand upon. Some of them are probably sort of just barely held together by the gravity that the small object has, it said. You sort of think of it is that kind of an orbiting rubble cloud moat rolling around That's kind of it. We've traveled to some of them and spacecraft and, of course, has been tricky landing on him. But we've even done that, too. Wow. Now what happens when an asteroid flies into the sun Does the What's the What's the result of that? You know, there again, a kind of Ah, interesting mystery question because we've never seen an asteroid as such fly into the sun, it would. It's too small and so by the time it got that close to the sun and disappear, but what you could figure it's going to just burn up. It's just gonna Vape arise. What we do see going into the sun is coming. That's comments are also not all that big, but because they turn into huge clouds that are very, very gaseous. You know there's hardly anything in them, but they're they reflect a lot of light so we can see comets crashing into the sun. And of course, the same thing happened to them. They vaporized long before they ever get even even close to that. That sort of Surface where the light most of light comes off of icy. Hey, can you stay with us? I'd be delighted. Thank you. It's great. All right, Doctor Crop is with us. The director of the Griffith.

"Holler if you went out, say to another star. Yeah, There's a little teeny, tiny effect of the Earth's gravity, but it's it's lost in the gravity of that other star if somebody was on, you know, outside of our gravitational influence, and that has to be a for you a long way away, and somebody threw a baseball in space. With that baseball continue at the same speed, it left the hand forever. Yeah, Fundamentally, That's so if if it does not encounter anything else on its trajectory. Now, if you keep on going long enough, the fact is empty spaces and completely empty And there's there's dust. There's Adams out there and and going far enough and long enough will gradually alter that as well as the objects that are out there. I mean, if you go far enough, a star will cause it to veer off a bit. Right. Let's say on the space station. Are they working? On artificial gravity. You know, you know now suddenly you've got me a little bit confused there. They're in a zero G circumstance, So they float around all the time. They're not operating under a kind of a situation like you sometimes see in science fiction movies where they're creating a sort of a pole down to the floor of the space station. Now they're they're floating under zero G. See our people currently working on earth and to develop a zero gravity room or atmosphere on Earth to my knowledge. No, I don't even know how you would do that that we simulate that by obviously going up in space and even doing these great arcs with aircraft that confer a few seconds put you under a simulated zero gravity. But I can't imagine any way with laws of physics that we could do something. Like that. Right here on the surface of the earth. You know, I have a billion more question. Can you stay with us? I'd be delighted. I always thank you. Hold on. One second. Dr. Edwin Krupp is with a man. I got a million board dumb questions, and this guy has got all the answers. On bats Really cool. He's the director of the Griffith Observatory, and one of the ones I want to ask him is I heard the other day that the color of the sun is not what we think it is, is not crazy. It's unbelievable. He has all the answers. And what keeps this son spinning. I was wondering what the hell is that There's a lot of questions I got about this crazy thing called Space..

I am well, I was hoping you'd say the whole universe, but the observatory will have to be it. That's right. But the observatory is like your home. There's nobody worked there longer than you is not correct. I'm afraid that's true. And there's hardly anybody else in the building at the moment. He's Oh, yeah, do whatever you want. Yeah, I know. Threat of viral contamination has corrected. Okay. Hey, I got some questions for you here. Oh, sure. You know, uh, when we look at the sun, is there an actual surface to the sun, or is it all gas if you just shot uh, you know a cannon in the sun when it hits something. Not really. It is all gaseous or plasma like you said, And if you go far enough into it, it gets very, very dense on. So if you went way deep into it, you'd essentially get to a layer where something couldn't penetrate because it's so dense, but it's not like it's solid. It's not like there's something you can walk on. See Is there like? Is it like a lava type in the middle? It's again. Lava is is actually a solid, but you would like an ATM or to lava because it's it's it's in constant motion, but it's the kind of matter we don't normally encounter. Of course, it's It's a very extreme form. And by the way, how do we know that if we have we shot something into it deep into it? No, but you can figure out what's going on inside a star by looking at the outside, and that's really the heart of astronomy, not just all the distant stars. But of course, our son where we can have a better understanding. So when you get the size, you get the temperature you can start measuring overestimating temperature, and then you can figure out what must be going on inside. But of course we haven't been inside. Yeah, that's true. Okay, but if like, let's say we go to Mars. And I didn't know this until I looked this up today. But Mars has no you know this Doctor. Mars has a different orbit than than Earth And it takes 365 days for us, you know, plus or minus a quarter day to get around the sun for them For Mars. It's 687 days. Yeah s o. I literally would only be about twenties 23 a half 24 years old and look much younger. That's right to feel great, man. What we also we have different, You know, we have different distances. I had to to Mars. Sometimes we're 34 million miles away. Others were times were 250 million miles away. That's exactly right. And that means that there are times when we get a much better look at Mars through a telescope than others, And we just passed one of those particularly good times Last October, the close approaches air called opposition when Mars is opposite the sun from us. And a favorable opposition is one of those were our two orbits Bring us particularly closer to Mars by by a few million miles. Yeah, and I read that the last time that happened was 50,000 years ago. Well, the closest that we've gotten to Mars in 59,000 years actually was in 2003. We actually beat the record of 59,000 years in 2000 and three when there was a very, very close opposition. Griffith Observatory was closed at that time. We were, you know, in exile over in the satellite on the other side of Griffith Park while they're doing all the improvements here, But we still showed Mars to more than 50,000 people through a telescope in Marcy at that time. That's kind of cool. I doctor crop is with us the director of the Griffith Observatory, so when when we go eventually send people to Mars. You all That calculation has to be done because you you want to be you wouldn't take the clothes. You know the shortest route. Yeah, Actually, we don't take the shortest route because we can't afford it. The shortest route? Yeah, the shortest route. I mean, you're never going straight. You know, if you look at the martyr in the sky and say I'm going there by the time you get there, Mars is gone. But we in fact have to take a route that combines all the factors of our our rocket trajectory. The fuel that we've got the weight that we're sending. And so we've got to master a Norbit that will match the speed that we can go. So if we could go a lot faster, we probably could do Ah, better orbit. But right now, when, When you see those space probes going, they're going on the best orbit that they can So when when we blast off and go to Mars, we're not. We're aiming a couple of months down the line then and Mars meets us there. Yeah, if you sort of, in fact, you've got it exactly right. If it's sort of like imagining the horses going around the track, and you wanna catch the one that the winners line and bit you on the wrong side, and so you're racing to get over there. That's right. Okay. Great analogy for a guy who has spent very little time of the racetrack. I listened to you. Hey, by the way, um when when you're standing on the surface of Mars. Would earth be visible to the naked eye? Oh, yeah. And and quite beautiful. Uh, the Earth is, you know, the bigger planet than Mars is And so it would appear bigger in the sky. Not a lot. But enough. And and, of course, Earth has a very distinctive blue color. And so you would look out at you wouldn't see the continents and the oceans is such You would see a really gorgeous object in your night sky. Actually, can you stay with us? I'd be honored to do so. Thank you. All right. This is great Doctor crop is with us. We're gonna take a short break here and then come back and talk to him. This guy is great. He has all the answers to all the questions we want to know about space. And because every time he got on with us, you know 30 40 50 times. I remember asking him a question. Where he stumped with the answers. I go. I don't know. I gotta get back to you on that one. He's got an unbelievable knowledge. If you look him up doctor crop at the Griffith Observatory. He looks exactly the way you would imagine him. 100% are we're live on K. If I am 6 40 more news now with Debra Mark.

"Somebody got mad at you for making fun of his hair dye. I think the President's gonna get mad at him for his hair Dye should Yeah. If you ever have to hold a press conference and defend me, I'd like you to not have your just for men rolling down my cheeks. Should I darken it? Is that what you're suggesting? No, Gary and Shana weekdays attending and just let it go gracefully. OK, I will. I will do that on K F. I mean, nothing. If I am six forties Conway show Dr Krupp is with us. He's with the Griffith Observatory. And he's the best. All right, Eye doctor. Welcome back. How was your Your car. Your vehicle? Yeah, The car is still humming along it. I had to replace the door, Will ya? Window crank thea other day, but it's back there and And so it keeps making up the hill here. 1968 Camaro 68 Camaro. Second year they made him six cylinder straight six and three speed transmission on the column. Two door. To door. Yeah, And so you've got to make sure that you know you're not picking up anybody that can't fit when you tell your seat down because that could be embarrassing. It's difficult for me. Actually, That's right. I got a couple of questions for you. Ready? Yeah. What's the gravitation of our son? Is it the equal to our earth? Oh, no, no, The sun has ah, significantly greater gravitational pull than the Earth Because, of course it's it's managing to keep the earth in orbit around it. And all of the other planets as well. So yeah, the you would you would weigh Ah, quite a bit. Now, the thing that that's a little odd, even though there's a lot of mass in the sun, which makes the gravity higher. Of course it's it's bigger than the earth is, too and that reduces the gravity But you're you're still way over Earth gravity there. If somebody were overweight, Could they write it off it with? It's just a current problem they have with gravitation. Eat. You know, it's that seems like a pioneering approach. And I I hadn't thought about that before. Right. I'm just having I'm currently experiencing heavy gravitation. Yeah, it blame it on relativity. Albert Einstein is the problem here. Right? Because if there was no gravitation than somebody who was obese wouldn't have necessarily more knee problems than somebody was traditional away. Well, now you you actually really are on on the deal here. I mean, the whole the whole issue with with our weight is just that we're stuck here on the earth or even close to it. When we go up in space even a bit. We're still Subject to the force that's pulling on all of the structural elements of our body. And so that is what causes the trouble Now, if you get far enough out in space, you know you're in orbit or something like that. And you become weightless. Well, then those stresses just go away. Well, somebody said to me like how much do you weigh? I weigh And I would say, I don't know about £95. And they said, Well, you look much heavier. And I'm like, Oh, I'm sorry. I thought you were talking about my moon. Wait. Yeah. Yeah, well, actually, I'd worry about that. Because your moon weight is 1/6 of your earth. Wait, that would you know that? It put you close to 600 on the ground here and That's that's worrisome that zwei, do you think I would then be 1 60? It's a six out. Be about £30 till you go. Yeah, And you know we've got £11. We've got a scale here at Griffith Observatory Right next to our 6 ft moon model. You can stand on the scale and weigh yourself on the moon. People love that. I've done it. I've had so much fun, but depending on who you're there with, like, it's my mom. It's all good. If I'm on a date, they're gonna have to turn around because especially that could do math. That that's okay. What you need. You need to go out with people. That one don't know. Astronomy and two can't do multiplication. They write some idiot. All right, I get another quick question for you. The hyper giant stars are pretty rare. And today I think they've only discovered 15 and the whole universe. Is that Is that true? Yeah. I'm gonna have to trust you on that. I don't actually know the count. But I'm gonna believe you there. What is the hyper giant star anyway? Well, hyper giant star is a star. That's way way larger than even the typical largest stars that that we know and it's. It's very hard for them to form and stay together, especially because when there is largest. They are The gravitational force at the very edge of them allows material to escape. And so if you and also trying to produce something like that, the forces that get that much mass together in the first place so obvious they're very rare and the idea of even understanding Okay. How did they form? How do they fit into the whole picture? I think it's still very enigmatic and astronomy. So are hyper giant stars, then of stars that are about to die. Well, there are star they will have a very short lifetime. In any case, there are very large stars called supergiant stars, and those stars are also headed toward explosion, or at least extreme loss of mass and so headed toward the last days of their life. And the biggest of these stars, the largest, the most massive of them are the ones that do have the shortest lifetimes. They're doing their thermonuclear fusion turning Adams into energy much faster than a star like the sun or even fainter stars, and so they approached the end of their cycles much sooner than something like the sun does. All right. And then I've got one more question for you, Andre Way, talked about this last week or two weeks ago, but I love this fact. And I love that you brought it to life. Um If we're in outer space. And this meteorite. It's gonna swing by Earth on November 2nd. You cannot hear it coming. If you were in space, and if it passed within even three or four inches of you, you wouldn't hear it. You would see it, but you wouldn't feel any wind from it either is at all true. Absolutely true..

"Way. Have doctor crop with us. He is the director of the Griffith Observatory. And he joins us. Dr. Krupp. How are you, sir? I am well, I hope you're not throwing me on speakerphone. I am absolutely discombobulate by this technology. Oh, no, You're fine. Normally, I would say past but to get you on the phone will do anything. Thank you very much. I got a question for you. There's a meteor or something coming towards Earth the size of a refrigerator, and it's gonna end up Passing is by on November. 3rd. Is that true? On November 2nd. Actually, the eve of election during that period on asteroid will make a close passage and just how close is impossible to tell. Okay, well, we had a report yesterday and I and I share in belly. Oh, confirmed. She just misspoke. But the reporter said that the asteroid was traveling at 24,000. Miles a second. Is that fast? That's not only fast. It's wrong. And and I heard you doing the arithmetic last night. You were right on it. It's an impossible e mean it's you know, the speed of light is is some don't know 186,000 miles an hour, so that media it would only be going about, you know 87 or eight times less than the speed of light. Yeah, The, uh it was about 90 million miles an hour, Which means they get from the Sunday here in an hour makes no sense at all. Of course, it really isn't going that fast. It's probably about 25,000 MPH. Okay, so But as we've learned from you in the past Earth is moving not only around the sun, but our solar system is moving within the universe. Is that correct? It certainly is correct. Okay, Now, here's the bigger question is the universe itself moving well, the universe as a object is impossible to be moving because the universe is everything. And the trouble with this conversation is all of a sudden we get to the point where it's impossible the visualized because you think like there's this big room in which the universe exists. But there is no big room. The universe is it and so the universe doesn't move, but it is expanding. It's getting bigger space and time are getting bigger, right? But we don't know for sure that everything in the universe isn't a speck of dust in somebody's closet. You're right. We don't know that. Okay from that answer, you think that's probably unlikely? Well, the I worry about the closet, you know the, uh but but what level of of our ignorance about the cosmos? I just have to sort of shut my eyes and hope for the best. What you do in astronomy, of course, is observed as carefully as you can and reach conclusions based on the evidence, But when we go beyond what we can observe, then it becomes speculation. Fair game for speculation. But here, Griffith Observatory, we try to avoid it. What is the furthest object and I imagine it's a star. What is the furthest object that we've seen through a telescope sense? You know, we started looking at space. Yeah, it's actually much more than a star. What we see in the very, very greatest distances are what probably are forming Galaxies. They're really so called quays ours. On. These are the very bright, very energetic cores of objects that are like things like the Milky Way and such these Galaxies that are huge collections of stars and gas and dust. Well, they formed very early in the universe, and when we look out in space to very great distances were looking very far back in time, and that's what we see in the other reason we see him is because they were so bright that their light makes it You know if they're still there, or we just seen the light because it's so far away. The light continues. Well, that's exactly the case. The object probably still exist, but it has evolved over what maybe 12 billion years or so and so, and it's certainly not in the same place because the whole universe has gotten bigger in the geography has changed. But the object itself like any of those things that we see in the distant past, for the most part, still exist, that there are smaller Things, of course, planets and stars whose lives in but I think on that very large scale of something like a quasar. They probably persist for all this time. So the quasar czar about 12 billion light years away. Some of them are much closer, but the most distant things that we can see fall into that category. Now there's one qualification. I should add to that we actually see something else. That's even farther than that. But it's not an object, its light and its light that is allowed to escape. From the Big Bang. Once the universe turns transparent, and that is actually coming to us from a distance. That is, well, roughly 13 almost 13.8 billion light years away from us with each of those light years being six trillion miles, But that's practically at the beginning of the universe behaving the way we see it now. So Dr Crabbe is with us from the Griffith Observatory. Um, let me ask you a question. Then if we see light coming from 12 billion light years away, then the light that we're seeing. Was created before our solar system. Our earth was created Exactly right? Yeah, we're about 4.5 billion years old. So that light was created about eight billion years before Earth. That's right, and we're just seeing it now. That's correct. Yeah. Wow, That's unbelievable. All right, we got a it really truly is. I mean, you know, if you look at the North Star, and again I think you would if I don't memory doesn't serve me right or it all sometimes, But you said it was about 430 years ago. The light we're seeing when we look at the North star that light left about 430 years ago. Is that correct? That is correct. Your memory is on the button. Thank you. So a 430 years ago, the in the next s So in the ensuing 430 years, that star has moved quite a bit. So that star is not actually where we're looking. That's right. It's not in the same direction exactly. It has moved. But remember, the distance is very far as well. And so when you think about where it is on the sky, compared to how we see the sky. It hasn't moved a lot in its actual position. These these ships in the movements of stars are called their proper motions and astronomers, you know, over the centuries have been able to measure them and established them, so they're not a big change there. That changed but not alive, Right? Okay. Now back to our solar system, Dr Carver's But this director of the Griffith Observatory as the sun gets older, will it? Will it condenser expand? Well, the sun will expand. First, the son will become a red giant star, and it will get bigger and bigger and developing even not only Mercury and Venus and the earth, but it will probably expand out to the orbit of Mars. And as it does that, after a while, in that evolution, it casts off. Some of that outer material, and what's left will be a very tiny stars, so it will lose a lot of that material. When it's a very large red giant. And then eventually all that will be left is almost like a nugget. A colonel of the star. Ah white dwarf this very, very compressed. I see. So the white dwarf is very compact, compressed won't won't be anything like the sun we see today no, no, much smaller and much cooler. In fact, a white dwarf typically is about the size of the earth. Okay, so the white dwarf star could be the solution to global warming? Yeah, yeah, it surely would. It's just that there would be no globe to warm, you know, or cool that point. Well, you know what that is? I think that's besides the point. You know, Doctor, I don't think we need to. You know, we could let's not make this about ourselves. You got the one of you? I think going on that. Okay. All right. Can you stay with us? Of course. And thank you. All right, Doctor covers with us. This guy's the best man director. The Griffith Observatory will come back.

"Do you think there's something out there? That's faster. No, because I'm I'm you know, right there with Albert Einstein, who has developed the most accurate description of nature. How the universe works that we've got, and it's been tested against experiment in observation over and over again, and Einstein keeps coming out to be correct. Now it's always possible something will be discovered that that just doesn't fit that. But so far, the record is really good. And Einstein's laws of physics show that nothing can go faster than the speed of light. So it Zilog. You don't wanna break it, and he didn't discover this with all modern a equipment at is at his, you know, in his office. No, no, but he did discover with his brain, and I don't know whether that's modern are archaic, but that Z That's where it comes from. But all of the mass that was involved, You know, it's not like doing extraordinary calculations. This is theoretical mathematics. Uh, that really does require a great intellect.

toddler with a couple of years to come on over and a lot of clippers he's all yours yeah the best it with the bat better thing was maybe have a couple of beers before you got at it yeah we have overall rating out that you can send a video out I got to see we have it yeah that's fantastic beautiful all right excellent all right we have I have my favorite doctor of the stars as with as doctor Edwin crop he's the director of the Griffith observatory and he loves us stars he loves coming out with this he always has great energy and he drives a car that he's that he's had the same car for thirty five years at least a doctor crusher okay fine how are you Sir I am just delighted to talk with you in here I've got it correct you right from the start the cars the topic at the eight oh wow okay so it's a it's nearly fifty it's over fifty years old you know I can't do the math here right yeah that's crazy that's unbelievable Hey so are they have they closed everything down if there is or anybody come to the observatory certainly not the public we were directed to close with the mayor's directive on the twelfth of March and in fact on the thirteenth Friday the thirteenth of course we close down the public the grounds are completely taped off as well to prevent people from crowding because that was occurring too so now you can't even drive into the Griffith park although you can hike just not on the trails at the present time so we get a few people coming up to the hilltop but they can't get close to the building and are they missing some pretty wild you know displays in the sky I know Venus is currently the second brightest object out there is that right well then the moon obviously beats it out so but denies their next of course and in its out there with the moon tonight in a sense people are missing because they don't necessarily pay attention but you don't have to be at the observatory to see it I mean just I go out my front porch right now and and there it is okay it's brilliant and can't be missed about a third of the way roughly up this guy in the west is it do we have a powerful enough five you know telescope to look at the moon and see any kind of debris that Apollo left there during the landing on the moon well I don't want to speak for any military equipment but we really can't take that kind of thing out with earth bound telescopes that are rob up putting their their focus on the moon part of the problem for a big telescope which is what it would take to to be able to do this is the moon is so bright and and so new ring that telescope and any it just blind here actually these are like looking at the sun practically so the moon doesn't rotate the this side we see of the moon is the same side with the it's been around for millions of years yeah we are locked into the moon but the moon does rotate if you think about it for a second the moon is going around the earth and if it didn't spin well then we would see other sides of it as it went around the earth but in fact it's slowly turning slowly rotating as it also makes its orbit it's it's circle around us and so it's constantly keeping the same face toward us and of course it's been doing that for a few billion years now it when when people when we look at at at the moon obviously you know the moon is one of the coolest things I mean you know that the moon when it rises up and it looks huge in the east I think it's one of the coolest things people can see when they're driving home and and you can see that absolutely gorgeous yeah but the but the earth is rotating if you're on the equator are we are rotating at a thousand miles an hour is that close yeah the if you think about that for a second day of the earth is roughly twenty five thousand miles around and of course if if it takes twenty four hours for the earth to spin once well you you get twenty four and and twenty five thousand miles right there you can do the math and it comes out just a little bit more than a thousand okay it's a little more than a thousand and then we're traveling around the sun and probably what another is a couple hundred miles an hour thousand miles an hour yeah wait wait in excess of that because the it you know you've got objects that have to to leave office they've they've got to go out like seven miles per second or so to get away from the earth and and get out of our orbit and how far this is a great question I'm I'm actually give you the opportunity it's the say to him that's a great question okay if the moon is being held by the earth's gravity how far do you have to leave the planet before you're not affected by earth's gravity thank you John yeah and that's a great question if yeah you know I'll tell you if the if if I were to be honest I I would say you know I I can't pinpoint the exact distance but in fact this is the sort of thing that happened exactly two the Apollo astronauts as they are or were traveling to the moon in those spacecraft and it is not to less than half way I mean it's much closer to the moon and that if the if you think about the fact that the moon is about is massive in its size makes it about one sixth of the earth's gravity then just as a rough estimate you say well if you go out to about two thirds of the way or a little bit more you're in the ballpark for where that point of of where the moon's attraction is stronger than the earth and there's a point where it's just sort of balanced I see okay now also is so aware if you're the query moving a thousand miles an hour if your the way we're traveling around earth it's probably seven miles a second maybe another you know thirty forty thousand miles an hour but then our galaxy is moving through space at probably an astronomical speed is that correct or do we know how fast well it it all depends on on what you're comparing it to of course that you can specify a speed that is going compared to some other galaxy but it doesn't really quite make sense to just give it a speed that is going because they are always talking about it relative to something else and everything else is moving to so so we're a lot while we're sitting in in our homes during your home I'm in mind we're literally moving at what could be a million miles and or plus an hour well especially if you add on to that the expansion of the whole universe which constantly going it you know the mind boggles with just how fast we're rolling it's amazing that we're moving at what could be in excess of a million miles an hour yet if we get a Santa Ana wind is blowing thirty miles an hour we all complain about it it just goes to show we have no perspective if we don't can you stay with us for another short segment I would be honored thank you right all right thank you this is so great Dr Edwin Krupp he's the director of the Griffith park observatory when we love having this guy and certainly glad he was available we'll talk a little more about what's going on out there in space we're live on campus I'm more now that you have read public health has confirmed more than forty three thousand cases of covert nineteen and seventeen hundred fifty five deaths more than thirty three hundred people in California are in the hospital with confirmed cases the.
