"Me, apparently. I think this is a good life. There's only been maybe 5 or 6 presidents. You gotta just shoot in the dark, you'll probably get one of them. After each mission, you go to The White House and do a thing with the presidents and it just blurs in with all the rest. Yeah, I'm sure. When you were in space, you mentioned you took at the time, I guess music on CDs. Yes. Do you take a lot of them? You had about 15 CDs. I still have them. I'm going to actually give them to the children's museum to put on display as a part of the exhibit. Doctor Wolfe is the scientist in residence at the legendary children's museum of Indianapolis, one of the most famous children's museums in the world. People come from all over the place to see it. And I know you guys are building a gigantic space display that will actually feature if I'm correct, it will feature the famous Gus Grissom capsule, the ones all the time. Yes, it will have the liberty bell 7 on display in their liberty bell 7. Mercury capsule. We have the controversy. Did he blow the hatch early or not? It was determined in the end that he did. But I think it was on display, I want to say about 20 years ago at the museum. It was when they first now it's been totally restored and they find it. Well, that was robotic activity under sea robotics. You know, kind of like the Titanic was discovered and all that. They finally kind of like, you know, the guy on the beach with the little minesweeper. She remembered how Gus Gus got out as it was filling with water. And then the helicopter came out and was trying to save the capsule. I remember this drowning. Right. Yeah, but the capsule was dragging the helicopter and they had to let it go. It started. But he's drowning 20 feet over his suit is filling with water. And too heavy and boy, was he mad. Not bad. You know, my office made it NASA walked on the moon, John young. He was my office mate for 15 years at NASA. They put the older astronauts in the young ones together, and he knew Gus pretty well. Flew with him in Gemini. Until gas was killed in Apollo one, Gus likely would have been the first man on the moon. Had he not died in the test on Apollo one, but in any case, I play Gus played handball, turns out my office mate told me. I play handball every night at the astronaut Jim. And apparently there's a lot of expletives that come out there. It's kind of a private gym. I would imagine. Apparently I've heard. And in any case, he said I haven't heard that kind of concussion come out of that court since Gus played there. I'll bet. He's got some Purdue man. He was. And there's Grissom hall that just was reopened two weeks ago. Completely reinvented industrial engineering school at Purdue. Mitchell, Indiana. Mitchell and I just went down to his house a month ago. It's very humble to say the least. All these kids living in this

"Cars look the same. All of those Jags and Ferraris and Seattle and Asuka's, they kind of all look the same. They kind of have that double bow side profile with a kind of vestigial fender over the front or kind of an integrated with a kind of echo of the cycle fender in front and then another fender and the rear. And they also sort of look the same. The one that didn't look the same was the Mercedes going, but that was like for the time reverse engineered from alien craft. So I sort of reject the idea that everything was more distinctive than it is now. There's a lot of commonality and a lot of style and a lot of conformism for kind of the same reasons we talked about before, which were everybody is trying to one up everybody else and people are stealing designs from other people. And there's just a lot of crossover and commonality. But it is true now that designers have far more restriction in terms of what they can do. And ironically, it leads to more creativity, not less. So I might be, that might be contrarian take and different point of view. But I think there are people doing great work now within even more rigid confines than existed in the immediate pre with pro swore era. One vehicle that you focus in episode on that is unquestionably unique is the lunar rover. And I love the symbolism of it because during the hottest points of the space race, when 4% of the U.S. GDP is spent on NASA, the cost to get something to orbit is something like 20 to $50,000 per pound. So anything that we send to the moon that is not absolutely mission critical on life support is so important and so symbolic and laden with me like the American flag that is as important as what you find in a burial tomb for an Egyptian pharaoh. What do we send to the moon? We sent a big car. It's one of the most incredible development stories for anybody who's interesting in cars or the space program or just human achievement in general. Yeah, we got to get a car to the wound. How do we do it? It's such an American idea. And what's so funny about it is the idea wasn't, you know, it's such an American sort of manifest destiny idea, but it was dreamed up by Wernher von Braun, who was sort of spirited out of the guy wrote a great book about it called across the airless wilds. A guy named Earl swift wrote a great book about the development of the lunar rovers that went up on Apollo 1516 and 17. A chronicles everything, and he talks to some of the people at Huntsville who were pivotal in its development. And at first, the plan was to send two lunar modules up there. One for the astronauts and one for the vehicle. The vehicle being so important to extend the range of exploration. Because astronauts could only get so far on foot. So to put them in a car would allow them to really interrogate the service of the moon, bring back samples from a wide range of areas and climb over stuff. And it was more important. I mean, Jerry Seinfeld has that great joke about isn't enough to go to the moon. We have to drive around there. We kind of did have to drive around there in order to find out what the moon was made of, find out to bring samples back and to see what we were dealing with. But the design evolution was incredible. It started as a 6 wheel concept, and then with that budget cut that went from two learner modules to one lunar module meant that the thing would have to fit inside the thing that carry the astronauts to the surface itself. So they had to find space in the belly. And they went down to four wheels. And I think part of what and swift makes this point. I think part of what led to GM getting that contract is that vehicle looked most like the car. Most reassuringly like a car of any of the other designs. You know, when you're dealing with those distances and all that untested technology, you want something that feels more familiar, you know? And I think that that was one of the psychological impetuses behind going with that GM design that might not look like a car to us, but the rival proposals were totally crazy. There was like one that looked like a space spider. It had these kind of floppy wheels that were like flower pots turned on their sides. But the genius of the GM design was not only that was kind of like, but also those wheels that were able to cope with that terrain. They were like piano wire piano wire mesh with chevrons, like composite chevrons, sort of sewn into them, retraction. Really, really cool design. Well, another thing that you touch on and this has been a large part of the argument of automobile design over the last century is performance versus safety and you mentioned this in episodes on the Chevy corvair and the minivan and I'm a proud maneuver on driver. Oh, excellent. It's a very functional with children. I thought, you know, I'm going to get over myself. I'm not going to pretend I'm too cool for school. A while ago I had a guest who compared the age of discovery to NASA's missions. And interestingly, he argued that NASA was too safety conscious that we're missing out on discoveries because frontier discovery is inherently dangerous. And that was understood in the age of discovery. And we sort of lost that human spirit of doing so and now that same argument doesn't apply to mass transportation because if I'm driving my kids to Chick-fil-A, I'm not really thinking about being like Vasco da Gama or Ferdinand Magellan. I just want no one to die. So the considerations are different. But if I'm a Playboy on the Italian Riviera with my ascot or scarf with my supermodel girlfriend, whatever, then the considerations are different. So how have you seen that tension played out in different vehicles? Hey everyone, Scott here. One more brief word from our sponsors. Well, I think, yeah, vehicles used to be certainly in terms of the minivan and we talk about this in the corvair episode. They used to be, you know, agents of freedom and adventure. And risk and that kind of that appetite for that really died off. And the symbolic meaning of cars changed from adventure vehicles to safety vehicles and things that protected our families, particularly in the case of the minivan. I think that point is true about NASA. But when Gus Grissom and those two other astronauts died in that test fire, I think that was a pivotal moment in NASA's sort of risk appetite. And Gus Grissom was an American hero and for him to die in a training exercise. I think was a lot for the American public to take. And I think some of that risk aversion is tied to the fact that we don't want to see our heroes die. And we don't see anybody die. We want to protect our families. And that sort of tradeoff started to really move towards safety away from risk and adventure and freedom. And I think corvair is a great exemplar of that corvair really has this reputation for kicking off a safety crisis in American automobile making. And beneath all that beneath.

"I'm impressed, Michael. George Gobel and Johnny. Wow. I've got a great church of global story. Maybe I'll tell you another time. He always made me laugh because he was just so quiet and sincere. Yeah. So anyway, I have this USB attached drive. I got the plex server working. I've got several TVs, fire sticks and Roku's. Everything is visible. Very well done. Yeah. The issue I have, though, is trying to get it visible as a drive on my network. And I do do my research SMB was the way to go. Got all these error messages and finally I just gave up, like literally I gave about a year ago, but I'm trying to figure and I can use something like VNC to remote into the but what you want to make it easy to put media onto your external drive. My network, yeah. Yeah, I mean, of course, because it's a USB drive you could just unplugging it in place. That would by far be the fastest, even if you had a network access. But it's inconvenient. You have to unplug and plug it back in again. I understand that. So what is the operating system you're running Linux, raspbian? It's a resume. Raspberry three point something, I think. So you have to make sure that the operating system has SMB enabled, obviously. Actually, you might look at there are other file systems network file systems like NFS and sifts that might be a little easier to implement. This is why people get, by the way, and you're quickly realizing this network attached storage like a sonata. The footprint would not have worked in the location. I don't have it wired. Raspberry Pi isn't very powerful, so that means the transcoding that goes on in plex is not going to be very good. It works fine. But if you have the movies in the format you want, and plex is a great media server. As a shared address. So I don't remember offhand how to turn all of this stuff on. I think you're going to use sifts CI FS, which is the common Internet file system. It's basically SMB. SMB is Microsoft's samba. There's server message block. It's from land manager. It's an old school way of networking. But it's become the lingua franca for talking to these devices. Then you'll need using a Windows machine to Mac. So if you're using a Mac, you in fact may want to use the apple file system. Apple also has a network file system. That may be better for this. I mean, apple's absolutely do sifts and NFS. That's an interesting question. I don't have a lot of experience on mounting network drives. Across a network, but I have a feeling there's another thing that you might want to. Short answer. I totally get that. Don't have a good answer. Maybe somebody listening will know, what's the best way if you have raspbian, which is a debian Linux running on the Raspberry Pi. What should he do to turn on network services so that he can mount that external drive and see it on his Macintosh somewhere else in the house? No, I appreciate that and everybody out there listening. Quickly, I know a rod was just on and Fred ward passed away the other day from who played Gus Grissom in the right. So great in the right stuff. I went back and watched that last scene.

"Today are incredibly sophisticated and in some ways similar space suits but not identical and i also mentioned a couple of materials in that previous episode like nomex but didn't really go into detail about what that is so nomex is a proprietary material that the company dupont developed in the nineteen sixties ended it similar in many ways to nylon but it's a little more rigid and most importantly it is fire and heat resistant. So it's been used in uniforms outfits meant for all sorts of folks who are in dangerous environments and situations like race car drivers Firefighters and astronauts. No mix is a polymer which is a type of long chain molecule where you have the same repeated units chained together over and over and over again but it's a special kind of polymer it's called an aromatic polyamide polymer and you might think that means. This fabric must smell mice. But it's not that kind of romantic and chemistry. Aromatic means that the molecules in the chain connect as a series of rings rather than as a straight line of atoms that are chained together and the word polyamide means that these strings of molecules connect together to form chains of these chains and the molecular structure of nomex makes it a fairly tough material in fact. Kevlar which was also developed by dupont is a type of aromatic polyamide. Although it is a many ways very different from nomex but shares some of the same molecular structural components so nomex has some interesting properties. One is that nomex will burn if it is exposed to heat source. You know there's oxygen and all that comes if the triangle is there no mex- will burn but if it is removed from the heat source. The nomex will just stop burning. Thus it is is flame-resistant is not flame proof. But his flame-resistant also. It doesn't conduct heat very well so a suit of nomex can serve as a layer of protection against heat as. Let's get back to our story. So as i mentioned in our last episode on this situation on the subject i should say the space suits developed for the gemini or jimmy project were intended to serve as a sort of stopgap for the early part of the apollo program. There were planned missions that would test various elements of the apollo spacecraft and the launch vehicles in space suits and all that stuff and some of the early ones would not involve going beyond the orbit or exiting the capsule so in other words the apollo program while the goal was to get to the moon. It's not like we were supposed to be aiming straight for the moon right at the get go. It was all in stages so that we could learn more use what we learned to build upon that and then continue from there so the a one c spacesuit which was based off the jimmy or jim ni- three c. Model suit was to serve for this. I block of apollo missions also known as block one. Now i think i might have said that was based off the g. four c suit in monday's episode. And if i did that's totally a mistake on my part that's on me. The g. foresee suit was the jim suit that was designed for astronauts to go on spacewalks on extravehicular activities or v as the g. Three c suit had fewer layers of the g. four and was slightly more maneuverable as a result that and it was only intended to be used inside a spacecraft. It wasn't rated to be used outside so the a one. C was similar in design to that g three c the original first mission had the designation of a s two. Oh four and it was supposed to see gus grissom who had actually played a really big part in the development of space suits and ed white and roger chaffee test the apollo capsule in earth orbit emission..

I'm gonna do today. So whenever i'm blessed to come here and and hang out for dennis always lay down a little thumbnail sketch of what we're going to do. It is july twentieth of twenty twenty one a date of huge significance to me because i am At least here in dfw. And maybe nationally the go-to space dork in american radio. And it's because. I'm old enough to be that and old enough to remember fifty two years ago today when neil armstrong lay down those historic footprints along with buzz aldrin. I in the sea of tranquility fifty two years ago today. The footprints on the moon tonight at ten fifty six eastern time nine fifty six central. Do your math elsewise. And i got a couple of things to say about that. And especially wow today and this was the day that jeff bezos decided. Let's go ahead and do it today. Because they wanted it to have some historic significance in it certainly does jeff bezos and his little brother and some dutch teenager and the wonderfully named wally funk. A woman a an eighty two year old woman who is a member of what was called the mercury thirteen. You may remember the mercury seven those were the actual astronauts six of whom went up deeks laden did not but he got to run the astronaut office later on so i guess that's a that's a little bit of makeup but they had thirteen women who may put through various stages of training a whole lot of them did really really well and while he was one of them and she's a local woman she lives just a few miles west of where i am here in the dfw area and she and the whole flight was eleven twelve minutes there.

Definitely jonesboro Got him at the bank out. Yeah just lame ass pieces of copper and zinc touched by some crazy guy. Probably not even that yup. But he had with all those people you know he would give them their pennies and say come to the faith. He leans after you know right. Oh yeah you did faith healing do everything. He did all the tricks. Oh yeah. I think the best story about that. That i heard was the one woman with a broken leg who was healed blood happened. There was jones and his followers actually drugged her and then they put a cast on without her even knowing what and then just removed later. Yeah there's actually some footage of that i believe. Oh yeah i didn't see the footage of it. We do have some day that we're gonna play. Don't wait audio. we have some audio. We're gonna play for sure okay.

Well, let me correct you on that If you don't mind, Leo, I do. I am involved with the airline pilot guy, but really, I'm an airplane geek podcast. I'm sorry. I'm sorry. I always get that wrong. Airplane geek podcast The airplane geeks? Yes. And in fact, today we just covered the Sperling Farms fly in and pancake breakfast. That was just amazing. Wait a minute on this beautiful Is that the biggest thing that happened in in aviation today? The Sperling Farm Flyover cake, Breakfast and flying. Yeah, they were over 100 planes from all over New England. That's pretty cool. Where is spur Wink Farms? Just out of curiosity. Ape. Elizabeth, Maine looks Right over the banks of the Atlantic Ocean. It's normally a horse past year, but they it's also an airfield and there was even a 1939 Beechcraft stagger wing and I'm sure Wow, what that is, and it was gorgeous. Wow, Beautiful day. Do you fly yourself, Micah? No. You know, I used to do radio and I used to interview musicians and people say, Do you play and I said no. I just criticized those with pilot. Yeah, Same thing for me. Yeah. Those who can't go on the radio. Exactly or now podcasts. But you know what, if if that's the whole beauty of podcasts, If you're something that you love, and you're crazy about your passion about make a podcast about it, because I guarantee you there's other people who share your passion. That's really funny. Have we have over 10 on the airplane geeks we have over 10,000 downloads a week with good, very good for 11 years just finished Episode 660. It's a weekly podcast. And with Bradley Guy launchpad Mars R E I c. Well, That's the sad story. Uh oh. Launch. We lost him last week. His folk wolf won 49 d He came down and Oh, dear, and, uh, savings, keeping himself from crashing into a bunch of houses and killing other people. He brought himself down and unfortunately, um, well, he's a hero. He's a hero really is And if you if you listen to last week's podcast episode, 6 60 I do a tribute to him. That really talks about what a two stories about him that sure what a hero is How it affected us. He flew of Funchal Wolf F W P 1 49 d beautiful. That a German, uh, World War two. That particular one was a trainer that was made by by Piaggio. And if you go to the Wikipedia page, and you look at that aircraft and you go to the fourth one down, that's his aircraft, Canadian civil service, But that's his. And he loved that airplane. What a loss. Well, I'm sorry. I know he was a contributor on the podcast. So that's uh That's tragic and a very, very good friend. I'm so sorry to hear that, Micah Thank you Condolences, but I had a question for Rod. I don't know if we can get him on or not, we can Rod is going to magically appear. Hello, Going. Hello, Point Rod normally join? Well. He will join us about 10 minutes for, uh, to talk about space. But go ahead and ask your question, Michael. You know, Ron, I I've been listening to the show and like you and like Leo. It's like the suborbital flights. Okay? They're kind of fun. And But what Richard Branson did today, Okay, that's really needed. You know, he was a passenger on an airplane that In quick, Oh, suborbital, But okay and then and then Jeff Bezos is going up in the O. Ryan, and that's more of a rocket. And that's a suborbital flight like Alan Shepard and Gus Grissom did, and that's terrific. But he's also bringing Wally Funk which I think is really need. So that was brilliant. PR. Yeah, Brilliant PR. So Jeff Bezos is no fool. He wins the PR battle between the billionaires, by the way, so he does an instagram of first of him asking his brother to go and his brother was genuinely like what? Yes. And then even more brilliant. This is on Jeff's, uh, instagram account. I don't know if it's the blue origin Instagram account er Jeff's personal account. I think it's his personal account, he asks. The oldest person ever go into space. Previous was John Glenn was, I think, 77 when he went up, Uh, Wally Funk, who is and this is the fascinating part of the story. Besides being an FAA inspector and pilot herself. She was one of the Mercury 13 the original 13 women who were selected for the Mercury program, but never got well. Why not quite accepted? You gotta be a little careful with okay. That's the story. They were invited. They were invited by the Lovelace clinic who had done all the training. Excuse me the examination. It wasn't NASA. That Astor no. Was really lovely is who ran that saying, You know, I'd like to know about women, too. And once they passed, and in some cases with better scores in the men to be to be fair, Uh, there were some agitation to try and get them considered. But NASA famously President Johnson Scrolled. Then Vice President Johnson scrawled on a note that was asking for them to be admitted. The murky program said. Let's stop this now. Wow. Text So NASA said, No, they're not test pilots. And they retorted, You won't let us be test pilots and they said, Yeah, but you're not test pilot. So, yeah, they weren't actually part of that program that it was a private program. Okay, That's interesting Wells through the government contract. Yeah, I'm sure Michael was going to say the same thing right? Exactly exactly And and And if you want to find out about her, we just had her biographer on the show. Just look up while he funk on the airplane geeks, the website and you can hear a whole hour and a half interview about her, which is interesting. Character, the the video that Jeff Bezoza posted. She was just a hoot a pistol in her eighties now, But boy, she's got energy and he asked her. What are you gonna What are you gonna do when we land and she says, I'm gonna jump? I can't remember exactly what she said. It was. It was great. I just I admire the heck out of her. So that's that's a good move, I think, but it isn't exactly It isn't exactly going in orbit. It's not exactly going to the space station. It's not exactly going to the moon. It's just going up and down. But it is big. The commercial enterprise has done it. Yes, sir. If I can. Talent, Shepard, Gus Grissom, they went suborbital. They got their astronauts wings. They're all talking about giving Jeff Bezos and Wally Funk, astronaut wings and my opinion and I'm very explicit with it, And it's very controversial, and people are campaigning for Wally Funk together. Astronaut wings. She's not an astronaut Jeff Bezoza senator astronauts their passengers. Oh, that's interesting one. So so and it gets even more complicated it. Yeah. So thank you. So it gets more complicated because bezoza is going up over 62 Miles, Which is, you know, is the Karman line that's officially space internationally, right? If you are a air force pilot, and you go over 50 miles high, you get Something called your astronaut waiting right and that that dates back to the X 15 program. So so the Air Force and the FAA and NASA say it's 50 miles and everybody else on the planet says No. It's 62. 400, kilometers. So you know, there's that technical definition. But beyond that, when people are paying money to take these flights, and maybe especially in sub orbital, you know, there is an experiment that on today's flight, how do plants respond to zero gravity? Well, we know that already because you've done the space day. Yeah, it wasn't that long, either. Yeah, so it's like, OK, his little science there, but Are the astronauts. Are they? Citizen astronauts? Are they space tourists? And you're going to see a lot of fighting. By the way. They got.

Wonder what radio station might have broadcast. There really was a radio station that was only on the air for about a year or two. Prior to that ground, Very W G. And right, right? And we have the mic. We actually do have the microphone that was used. It's down the hall. It's down the hall in a showcase it was It's in my briefcase. Get that on eBay as quick as I can. Now, the I wish. I wish I could have met this man. And I don't know if we have any air checks of the early days from Quinn Ryan. Yes what? Why are you laughing? We don't have air chairs of our shows. Well, that's there's a reason why, you know, I'm talking to Quinn Ryan from 1925. WGN radio spent $1000 a day what to broadcast this trial. That was a lot of money. 1925 and Quinn Ryan was an extraordinary broadcaster. A real pioneer, set the pace for that. Doing the broadcast from Dayton, Tennessee, in 1925, and I have to. I have to tell you we visited the actual building. It's still there still in use as the county courthouse in Dayton, Tennessee, there's a museum in the basement. W. G. M and the Chicago Tribune are prominently mentioned to this day. That's a big deal down there, and every summer they do. Re enactment of the trial because the play inherit the wind was based on this everything. So the Dayton Tennessee is still very much a part of American history and the Scopes monkey trial 96 years ago today. Dayton, Tennessee is a nice day going for it. 72 degrees going up to 81 here. Still not where the only monkey son W. Here. Chicago's very own W G. Welcome.

"Will have some fabulous repurposed. Programming that you may not have heard. Or if you heard, I guarantee you dazzled you before and will entertain you again. So that's what we'll be here on Monday, And as far as the podcast goes, I'm putting together a special memorial Day podcast. One of the interviews I just did yesterday because I hadn't even really considered it until We did it fast, Eddie. Found a historian who wrote about Apollo one. 19 sixties. Seven. I think it was. Yeah, I Did not know that story. Very well. The story of Gus Grissom. I guess I knew of the explosion during training that killed these. Astronauts and training. I didn't really know the back story. It was a fascinating interview unto itself. But it wasn't you know, it's kind of a proposed nothing but it made me realize that so many of the men and women who have Going into the space program. Some who have lost their lives are, in fact, military men and women. So you know, on a day like Memorial Day, they certainly are just as deserving of remembrances as any other. It seems to me and I hadn't really ever considered it. Frankly, until this interview, I think you'll enjoy it. But during the interview, I started to talk to this guy. Said. Hey, while I've got you because he's a space enthusiast, I said, I just kind of ask you because I've noticed guys like Tucker Carlson are doing a lot of it. Lately. And it's I'm not. I'm not passing any kind of judgment. I'm not saying anything about any of it. Other than I'm just noticing it's out there. There has been real heightened discussion. Of alien. UFO. Well as I should say alien. Unidentified flying object UFO sightings and I'm hearing Maura and Maura and Maura about His tape of this and testimony of this and This ex pilot or this ex member of the military has come forward now to say Oh, yes, yes, Yes, We're sitting on mountains and mountains and mountains of footage of UFO's The government is sitting on mountains and mountains. Mounds of you. This is so prevalent a topic now. You know, our friend Dan Bongino launched his nationally syndicated radio show yesterday, and he had Donald Trump as his first guest. He asked former President Trump about UFO's Wow, I'm not kidding. Now Trump quickly. Kind of moved. Hey, didn't want much to do with it. He goes Well, I don't You know, I'm gonna Hmm, You could tell Trump. I couldn't tell whether Trump was like I don't want to talk about it. Or I know stuff. I don't want to tell you. It felt more the former than the ladder. Not like I know stuff. I don't want to tell you. It was more like, Look, I get it. You know, people bar into this thing. I'm not, you know. I don't want to castigate anybody for believing in it. I'm not really going to give you a lot of time about it. I'm just gonna tell you a lot of people. No, That's why we started space for Stan. Well, right, then the space force that and remember when Newt Gingrich ran for president. I'd talk with this gentleman about this in the interview, too. This guy says Newt constantly run around, saying he wants to colonize the moon and I won't lie. It made me laugh every time, he said it Is it just sounded loony to me Colonize the moon. But Newt Gingrich is one of the smartest people I know. Period that I wouldn't I couldn't Couldn't carry Newt Gingrich's briefcase. So how dare I chuckle at a very serious man like Newt Gingrich suggesting we should colonize the moon? How dare I have no right to laugh at him. He sees something. He has a vision that I just don't This historian I interviewed he said. Well, yeah, I mean, Obviously being first and getting you know, in becoming influential in that place. Being another planet. Be it space generally if we don't win those races Hostile nations will so From a national security perspective, If nothing else, it's important that we engage. And so of course, that makes sense. But broadly speaking, I guess I'll just ask this audience because you're the smartest, most thoughtful People that I know. And I mean that I trust you implicitly. I lean on you is judge and jury all the time on things that I Have a very, very smart friend that I lean on for lots of opinions, and I I asked him. In fact, just last week, I think on the text, I go. What What is all this talk about UFO's lately? Is this real or is this sensational? He said. There's a lot of very credible people coming forward. Now to say these they know these things, and this is what they see. I said, Well, is this Is this a thing? That lots of, um it again? I just don't know, because my world view is Relegated to, uh Kid's sports and You know my dog for the most part, so there's just not a lot of time to do a lot of extracurricular things. Besides read the headlines of the day. Is there high interest in heavy belief? In UFO's in this country. And is this something that I mean? I know I have a colleague or did have a colleague. Who did overnight radio for years and years and years, called coast to coast Am with George Noory. His show from midnight to five. A.m. was almost exclusively talk of UFO's And then I would have to come in. At six o'clock and start doing a show following the UFO show. And so you went through about an hour where guys were calling in Confused that I wanted to pivot into the news of the day and not talk about UFO's and Bigfoot anymore. So I know there's a window for it. Believe me, I know there's an audience for it. I just don't know how Fast That is, and I don't know how on.

"032508 60. Let's go Toe Randy and Michigan. Hi, Randy. You're on ground zero. Like like, how you doing? Thanks to take my call. You bet. Okay, well, I got two things that they believe that's going on here. First of all, Sachi, the press release lady that she's about his dumb is Raggedy Ann and looks just like a okay. And the second is remember how Biden was, you know? He was saying that I've got to give your pop pop kickback. With his son. Now I feel that this whole thing is going on with China. Just the virus came out to get rid of trump so they can Put this all together and Obama is actually pulling the strings. Bite. I can't think of 40. Five executive orders like that he would have forgotten more. So I believe that Obama is pulling the strings and Biden is getting a kickback from China and all these things that he's cutting out because now we're gonna be having a bike. You know? Well guess from the outside when we had it here. So I just think it's a whole kickback situation and for not, you know. What money? The space force's ridiculous We need to move to the next level. Like you said earlier. We went to the moon back. And what? The sixties or seventies 69 years Since we've been there, it Zagat stagnant. We haven't moved any. I always hear people, you know. I mean, when they always say Well, we can't put a man on the moon. I go. What? We did it, You know, 50 years ago, and we did it with less technology we have now I mean, the lamb that computer on the land was about his advanced As a toaster oven. That's that's how minimum technology they used to get, man on the moon. You know, we have cell phone technology. You go around the corner. It cuts out yet they were able to have a clear open signal from the moon to the Earth. Nixon even called them on the phone. I mean, I mean, this is where you know, Doesn't it sound a little farfetched to you? Get in the middle of the Cold War. It was easy to fool people. But once the cold War was over, we can't fool people anymore. We can cut back now. We can. We can take away space shuttle programs we can weaken, you know, cut back on the Artemus program on on consolation, and you know, I just I don't know. It just bothers me that no one can put two and two together here. I mean, how is it that we went to the moon 50 years ago, and now we can't. How is it that we're just bogging it all down and not allowing for the dreams of those young people who saw the first moon landing? How could we not see that in our lifetime when we actually invested our imaginations into it? That's what bothers me. Why can't we have it in our lifetime? When our imaginations have invested in this since the time we were Children? Yes, exactly. And we should be in, you know, flying cause right now. Yeah. Where's my flying car? I want my flying car. Well, I guess you could argue. It's an airplane. A flying car is and we've got flying cars. They're called airplane. Go to Glen in Texas. I go in your own ground zero A good evening clad great show. Thank you. Uh, Well, you touched on briefly on everything I wanted to say. Uh, you know, in the sixties, it was a technology test. We would going, uh, the fact that Kennedy said, uh, within 10 years relevant, he had nothing to do with it. Uh, Today. It's all economics like you were saying And I wanted to see under the umbrella of space force. Uh, do what needs to be done. He's the constellation heavy lets you called. Just lose. Uh Ma Julie built spacecraft to us in orbit Build Cruiser, a big cruiser where Amar's trip would be a walk in the park. Multiple Anders Tripoli. Identity and rescue, no ridiculous capsule trying to land on Mars and hit a golf ball for a couple of days. And I think that you know, I think that though, Glenn I think that if we were to go back into space, we're put man either on an asteroid or on Phobos T Most Mars I don't know. I think maybe there was a lot more serious. There would be a lot more serious work that had to be done rather than see before it was an experiment. I mean, once you experiment with something new you could do with it. Whatever you want. I mean, I remember, you know, Let's use an example of metaphor mean MTV. When they first came on the air. They were a music channel they use the moon landing is their example of how unique this was the idea of putting, you know, radio music into video and putting it on TV. And I remember, you know, working with You know, we're working with different people in the business. One of the things that Nina Blackwood I worked with her at a company called Nbg and she was a she was a jock that worked there She was a VJ. I asked her. I said, when you did MTV tell me about what it was like to be a part of something like that. And she said it was like landing on the moon because whatever we did, we had to be the originators because we were the first on the scene. So whatever we do was experimental. Whatever we did in front of the camera. We were making the rules and that's what it was. When we landed on the moon. We landed on the moon and we were the first to do that. So we meet all the rules. You put the flag in the ground. You're right. You drive around on a rover. You read the Bible. You play golf. You do a bunch of Masonic rituals on the moon. That's what we did. Okay, That's what we did then. But now it's a lot more serious. We don't go up on the moon. We don't play high five golf. We don't You know, we don't throw a Frisbee. We don't jump up and down. Drop the you know we don't drop the feather and the hammer and the bowling balls. We go up there to do some serious work. And I think that's why I think that's what we need to think about when we think about the moon landing on Mars landing if we do it in 2024. A marginally designed that, like module area designed submarines would be that new issue. It would be the newest thing. It wouldn't be a capsule you have you have research. You have speed, you have stamina. It would be the newest thing. Well, yeah, I mean, that's the thing, though, is you? You have to understand that budget concerns wouldn't make it that sleek Unless they have a really good bid. They could do something for less. And it was always NASA's concerned. Keep everything in expensive. You have that. What was it? What was it that Gus Grissom said. He says we have. We're going up in a rocket where the lowest bidder is supposed to tell us that with the least amount of money they're gonna they're gonna make a safe when you go into space. It is true. I mean, they're not going to be. I'm sure you want musk and others They're gonna have like you say a sleek ship. They want the ship to return. They want it all to be cool. And Yeah, that's great. That's innovation. The truth of the matter is is, if we really desperately want to get into space, we really desperately wanna have dominance. We're going to do exactly what Gus Grissom worried about, and that is the lowest bid for the best for the best machine. Basically what's going? Oh, yes, I was. I was speaking military, not private sector under the umbrella of space force. All the injustice know they're using. They're using that for space force. They're not using our materials they're using I'm gonna be using materials from corporate entities like yuan Must Space X and And Lockheed Martin and all these other groups are gonna go to them. They're not gonna go toe..

"Yes forty six percent. No and the only reason i asked was because they were talking about it in the post game i think maybe it was during the second period intermission. I can't remember or maybe he was talking to cal peterson. It must've been kentucky. Cal peterson in a post game of definitely not second division. No right. I because the goal gus grissom barry fair point but i actually did think if the rule is that you can't push the goalies pads into the goal into the net. I actually think that's happened I wasn't one hundred percent clear why the goal was allowed. Although frankly i think it's a silly rule that it what should have been a goal but given how it happened given what it meant to the overall flow of the game in the end the end result which is at the kings win. I'm leaning towards calling it a fake shutout. I i'm gonna different opinions here mo mostly because the puck was never really covered. It was kinda just there in the pad was also there. No he never had control in. The puck wasn't under his glove and it got pushed into the net. But you know to me because the puck was loose to an. It's just a battle of goalie versus you know. Players stick trying to keep the puck out of the net in china. Push it in. So i think the call on the ice you know at as it was made prior to the review was the right choice and and for being upheld say what you want but hey we can we can pass on that knowing that the kings one overall. It's something that's going to be controversial whenever it comes to pushing a goalies equipment in his leg into the net know. It wasn't very blatant that it did. Even though that was the case to an extent but hey will forget about it will move on. We'll take our two points. Yeah either way. He makes thirty two saves on thirty. Three shots turns in his first win of the season and looked great. I mean i thought he looked real strong and i have to admit heading into the game knowing that he was starting while i don't necessarily think his two losses were his fault. You're looking at the numbers. Before the game you know with a saab nine hundred. Save percentage in an above three point zero goals against you know to record and your just sorta tugging. You're caller go. I'm like oh you're but you know. He looked for every bit the goalie that we've been hearing about for two or three years. Now yeah yeah. He made some really good saves against fiala parisi Spurgeon was in their brodine as well overall the wild really spread out when it comes to who they get their shots from aside from knowing fiallos gonna put quite a few on net in the wild have active defenseman when it comes to pinching when it comes to stepping into the playoffs pensively it was a great showing from cal peterson overall. Knowing that you know you while we know what we're going to get out. The wild shots tend to be a little bit more unexpected and hard to come from because a lot of their energy in offense comes from behind the net which is not easy for goalie to track. So by all means you..
