The Story of Miss Baker - Space Monkey

"Okay so what was the plan. Were they going to do with these. Twenty-six tiny cute monkeys already worried about them. Yeah so nasa wasn't a thing until nineteen fifty eight so for years. The army and the navy have been running these tests to see if it's safe to send humans to space and that's where these twenty-six tiny monkeys come in. So were they going to send all twenty six of these monkeys into space or was there like some kind of training tiny centrifuges how they just please imagine for a moment a monkey training montage. They had to go through like stimulated flights and lab testing. And you know stress testing like they were looking for the smartest calmest monkey to send to space. Yeah i'm totally imagining the monkey version of the right stuff. And i'm sure this isn't isn't true but i'm picturing like tiny silver jumpsuits and little monkeys walking down the tarmac in slow motion for sure. That is what i'm picturing. So it all sounds really cute. Little monkey nuts blazing a trail to the stars. But actually the us government at this point has been trying for a decade to bring a monkey back alive so starting in nineteen forty eight we had albert. The i went down to the tail. Explosion albert the second valve failure alpert. The third parachute didn't open i. I mean it's interesting and this is like it's both totally awful but gives you some sense of why they're doing these experiments right because they're going to send people into space plans to send people into space years out from sending people to space and so far there just you know. Just a bunch of dead monkeys. This is i mean so. This is pretty grim up until we get to miss baker. How did they end up choosing miss baker. So it's spring of nineteen fifty-nine. There's all launch scheduled. And so the navy basically narrows it down to one candidate and its tiny female squirrel. Monkey barely on adults. And she's teeny tiny. You hold her in your hands She has this adorable little like white mask on her face. You know tiny little like bear shaped ears a long tail super long fingers. Ucr your heart just goes out to her and the researchers really liked this particular monkey. The even named her tlc for tender loving care. They basically figure if she she was the smartest the most docile and that she was the best candidate for this mission little known fact nineties hip hop group. Tlc named after her frie- you music box out there. Score that one away. That's that that's not true so the mission was coming up and all higher ups like we. We can't call her. Tlc that's not. That's not going to sound good over the radio. And so they renamed her baker specifically they renamed her miss baker and her co pilot for the mission was another monkey and they call her. Ms able and so finally. It's may twenty eight one thousand nine hundred. Ninety nine launched a cape canaveral. They load miss baker up into this really scary looking contraption it's like a water bottle or metal thermos and she's wrapped up in there like a mummy in this little jacket and she able or walked out onto the tarmac where they launched all the ships and they're loaded into the top of a rocket fifty ton jupiter rocket fifty tonnes for two tiny monkeys. Okay so they're on top of this building sized fifty ten rocket they're tiny they're cute and this giant rocket this big launch. It's all for them. There's nothing else going on today so owning to thirty five. Am one lengthening. We have looked up thirty monkeys strapped in escaping from the gravity of earth and into space at one point. They're moving at ten thousand miles per hour. Just imagine flint would be terrifying for anybody much less a monkey in total they spend about fifteen minutes in space and then the nosecone detaches from the rocket and it begins the descent. Forty-five minutes after the launch. The nosecone splashes down about two hundred fifty miles off the coast of puerto rico. Just after five. Am that morning. The uss kua pulls up at picks up the nose cone and everyone is very nervous. They were desperate for these monkeys to have survived. So one of the guys aboard ship popped open the nose cone and both the monkeys were alive. Everyone was just everyone was so happy. They radio back to cape canaveral and they said able baker are perfect. No no problems after unwrapping her from her coat and her thermos one of the guys on the ship gave miss baker at a little cookie. And so it was. It was a huge success because these were the first monkeys to return alive from space. Oh wow yeah and these were like the first american animals to kind of come back in one piece and you know like at this point. This is the middle of the space race. There's a lot riding on this as a very very geopolitically important little tiny monkey yeah she was a big deal and you would be for the rest of your life so immediately miss baker in her co-pilot miss able are shipped off to washington. Dc for a press conference because our what do you mean a press conference the monkeys you gotta understand there now vip very important primates but four days after the landing something really sad happens miss able dies in a freak accident and so now. Miss baker is the only the only monkey to return alive from space and america's only animal astronaut to have survived. And so that just kind of makes her even more special there. Were you know newsreels about her children's books printed about her or she gets fanmail especially from children. She was on good morning. America at one point. She got double billing with the jackson five. That is famous. Yeah i also. I also love post her career in science her life kind of like moves into the gossip pages. A little more public figures like that like they do something you know like kind of given a title. She's called america's first lady in space. That's how she was seen so miss baker after her flight. She goes back to pensacola. You know there's a yearly parade in her honor but mostly she settles down. You know her handlers. Even get her a companion. Another squirrel monkey named big george and after a while the hands even hold a wedding for them so like many young couples miss baker in big george moved to a bigger place. The newly built us space and rocket center huntsville alabama and by. Now it's nine thousand nine hundred seventy one and it's been more than a decade since miss baker took her spaceflight so big george eventually passes away and miss baker immediately married off again to another monkey. And it's very celebrity. It's very tabloid. The space center even sends out engraved invitations and has a real judge into the fishy eight And they dress up miss baker in like a train veil. She actually rips off a couple minutes into the ceremony. Good for you good for you. Miss baker and so she you you just get this idea of like how precious she was to people in nineteen eighty-four. She dies of acute kidney failure. She's twenty seven years old and at this point. She is the longest known living squirrel monkey in history. She at this point. She's broken every single record for like the average lifespan of a squirrel monkey. So miss baker's led this long life. She had like an official wedding when she died where she given. The same treatment was a funeral. Or what happened. Oh yeah she was sent off in style she was buried right outside of the. Us rocketed space center and three hundred people showed up just to witness her being laid to rest. I saw some pictures to like flower. Reason like these signs saying you know like miss baker america's first lady of space born nineteen fifty seven died nine hundred eighty four. And you know she was that day she was laid to rest next big george who had been buried there for a couple of years now. That's nice that's nice

Yaa Gyasi Discusses Her Latest Book, Transcendent Kingdom

"Was born in ghana amazed in huntsville alabama process novel. Going was a sunday times bestseller. The national book critics circle award for best first novel and was shortlisted for the pen. Robert w bingham prize for fiction. Twenty seventeen she was selected as one of granta's best young american novelists and in two thousand nineteen the bbc's elected her debut is one of the hundred novels that shape. Our world and latest novel is transcendent kingdom. And that's what we're going to talk about today. Y'all welcome to little atoms. Thank you thanks for having me. Tell me festival how you would describe this novel. So transcendent kingdom is about a woman named gifty who is completing a phd At stanford and neuroscience and she studies phenomenon called neural circuitry of reward seeking behavior which for lay people just means that she said he's things like addiction and depression and it's at a time in her life when her own mother who is quite depressed has come to stay with her so she finds herself taking care of her mother while also doing this research while also reflecting on her childhood particularly the circumstances that led up to her beloved older brothers passing from an opioid overdose and sets a book about Family about mother daughter relationships about immigration about religion and about science knows your debut. Homegoing was a a historical epic a sprawling multigenerational story. This one. obviously as you've just described it covers some big issues big ideas in it but it's focused down on a one single family and indeed a family. That's getting smaller not getting larger year. It never it didn't really feel like a conscious choice and from the beginning of transcendent kingdom. It just seemed like a more intimate story like a smaller canvas. In that way. I wanted to focus on the way that trauma works in a family Which is a theme homegoing as well But in this case it was a much smaller and lay. It just felt natural. I think so much of transcendent. Them is about the ways that isolation has affected this one woman gifted life and in order to kind of capture that isolation loneliness a needed the i needed the smaller scale Gifted just isn't a character. Who has this kind of abundant family life. Her family moves to the states before she's born and once they get here they're kind of cut off from the larger extended family ongoing obviously had characters who were also cut off from family. But i feel like the point of that book was to kind of showed this broader family to show the family tree in its fullness to see the way that these cutoffs impact the individual Transcendent kingdom were just starting with the single branch and that set so gifty as you said. She's a nervous scientist. He's on on a day carrying out a particular experiments and this is a real thing. Tell us what it is. She's doing and where where this came for. You used it in the book share and so years conducting this experiment. While i think i call it in the book like a behavioral testing chamber Basically she puts mice into this chamber that she's created and she trains the mice to press a lever for a word in this case. It's like a chocolate milk drink when they pressed the lever the milk floods into the straw. They're all excited. And then after some time she changes conditions so sometimes when they press the lever they get the drink and other times when they pressed the lever. They get a mild foot shock instead. And there's no pattern to it. So the mice never figure out when or why beat shocks happening And what she discovers is that some of the mice stop pressing leper but others. Don't stop those mice. The who are effectively addicted to drink are the ones that she uses to study the neural pathways that are involved in addiction. in a a came to this Research via my own best friend. Her name is tina ken. She is a a neuroscientist herself. And when i started writing this book we were both living in california as she was finishing up her. Phd at stanford. I should mention. She's a friend from childhood so just kind of random that she ended up at stanford which is my my own alma mater But at any rate she was finishing her. Phd bear and around that time she had a major paper published that i wanted to read I thought that i understood what she did. But while i tried and failed to read the paper. I realized that i had no idea what she did And so. I just kind of asked if she would allow me to shadow her and her lab at that point. I didn't really know that. I was writing a book just kind of wanted to get a better understanding of research And thankfully and graciously she said yes. And so i spent the day with her and The day i went she was performing this surgery on her mice. That detail in the opening pages transcendent kingdom. And i just found it. So fascinating. Counter research fascinating. The whole process was unlike anything. Obviously that i ever spend my day thinking about. And i found that those places where your own curiosity is sparks places that feel incredibly different but also for tile are the best places to lean into for for creative worth so it felt natural to want to know more. It felt natural to to try to think about it to fiction so

The University of Alabama Shooting

"On february twelfth. Twenty ten forty five year. Old niro biologist. Amy bishop arrived a routine faculty meeting with her university of alabama huntsville colleagues about the minutes after the meeting started. She pulled a handgun from her purse and fire on the group after she fled the conference room bishop discarded her bloodstained jacket and weapon in a bathroom. She intended to slip out unseen and meet her husband outside the shelby center but was intercepted by police outside. The building bishop was then arrested and taken into custody. The shooting critically wounded six of bishops colleagues. Killing three it was a senseless as it was ruthless and many wondered what prompted the usually reserved scientists to turn violent. It didn't take investigators long to uncover a vital clue according to the new yorker a police chief from the boston suburb of braintree. Where bishop had grown up called huntsville's sheriff's department the morning after the shooting. His warning was grave. The woman you have in custody. I thought you'd wanna know. She shot and killed her brother back in. Nineteen eighty six according to amy's mother. Judy bishop when amy was twenty one. She accidentally shot her younger brother. Seth as judy told. Amy been home visiting from college and mistaken seth for an intruder. The family had experienced a break in their house the year before and amy's father purchased a shotgun for security. Amy raised the loaded shotgun but stopped short when she realized it was only seth arriving home from running errands but when she attempted to unload the gun. Amy accidentally shot her eighteen year. Old brother killing him. Amy was held in police custody until that evening. Boston police indicated. They believed to be an accident. Supported by a medical examiner's analysis of seth's gunshot wound though the incident likely caused. Ptsd shock. amy. Bishop didn't receive counselling or psychiatric treatment following her brother's death. When bishop later married and became a mother. Despite the appearance of normality it became clear that she was prone to explosive behavior. She reportedly lashed out in public on various occasions. Even physically assaulting a stranger pancake restaurant whose family was seated before hers bishop was also known to dismiss graduate students in her lab that she was supposed to be advising some acquaintances believed she was growing arrogant and resentful this increasingly erratic behavior coupled with reports that bishop had grown bitter and isolated after being denied tenure led investigators to believe the shooting was a demonstration of retaliation and anchor as bishop awaited trial in prison. The case of her brother's death was also reopened in june of two thousand ten. A grand jury indicted. Amy bishop for first degree murder of her brother shortly after she was indicted on multiple counts including capital murder and attempted murder for the february twelfth.

U.S. Space Command Headquarters May Land In Alabama

"In the South. Several states, including Colorado, Nebraska in Florida, were hoping it would be them. But instead, Alabama Governor Kay Ivey is announced. The space command is going to Huntsville, known as Rocket City for its rich space history. Werner von Braun. His team developed the first American Rockets and the Saturday five used during the Apollo program at Huntsville's Redstone Arsenal. Huntsville is also the home for Nasa's Marshall Space Flight Center and Space Camp. Space Command is not to be confused with space Force, which is a different branch of the military. Peter King.

"Decision on picking Huntsville, Alabama, as the permanent home for Space Command is deeply concerning. News reports say. The military selected Colorado Springs as the home of the command on Lee to be overruled by the president. The governor says the president's action appears to be politically motivated, The Air Force secretary told the president the military picked Colorado. But officers who are familiar with that briefing say the president picked Alabama, a state that includes six lawmakers who objected to the election results last week. Even if the House votes to impeach the president today, the Senate will not hold the trial until after Joe Biden takes office. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is office confirming he will not use emergency authority to bring the Senate back earlier for an impeachment trial, which means the earliest trial could start is January. 19 the day before the inauguration and a verdict after Donald Trump is already out of office, Sebi season and the field.

Yesterday's a jack boone's who's a professor in the department of ece fisa goal in planetary sciences unto colorado boulder. He is also vice president images for academic affairs in blue sage for disuse system system. Jack while thank you. Joe is good to be with you. Thanks for doing this so you at your team. On deeply involved in the upcoming nasa missions to the moon including The designed to place radiofrequency absolutely on the far side of the moon and be kevin deemed really back there for almost fifty years. Now i know that china s landed. I was actually looking at some photographs that just gained today from From their lander. I israel in india. Almost got there but Fleas land properly. And so so. What's our interest. What's sudden interest in going back to the moon after fifty years. Yeah i don't know that. I would characterize as a sudden interest i think on the part of the science community and really the exploration community interest has been there for a while but what has changed in the last decade is the cost doing missions And the accessibility of the moon in this new era in which we have now. Private companies like spacex and like the blue origin company. Jeff bezos company They've put considerable private resources in developing new rockets of with reusability to lower the launch costs and also technology which was extreme in the nineteen sixties to try to get to the moon. All hannity vetted from scratch now is relatively straightforward at gill as you mentioned Even a small countries like israel Private companies have contracts with nasa to fly payloads. Now it's it's it's realizable to Envision going to the moon at a relatively modest cost certainly in comparison to the sixties and seventies. Yes so that's a. It's a very interesting phenomenon. Now it's it's almost like a business model question. Space is Blue blue horizon blue origin. Laura gin and that is another company. Lakers peterson things. Well lockheed you ally the united launch alliance which is the lockheed and boeing Company as well they all have these new generation of launch vehicles that are capable of going to so nasa in some sense outsourcing Some of the transportation right to so captain made a selection or are they going to do essentially multiple companies. Do it the the plan is to have monk multiple companies just like the commercial crew program To the space station there's boeing and spacex And for the case of the moon for the un crude landers that Landers that are just carrying payloads nasa has identified a out a dozen companies To be able to transport a payloads to the moon and at the same time. They're also undergoing competition right now. They selected three companies to design as part of a public private partnership the next generation of human landers. So that's the same. Mostly the same group that has spacex blue origin and the third one is is dynamic which is a company in huntsville alabama rate. So it's nassar's goal here is They are they going to take contracts from other other countries do send pedal to the moon in these companies. The the way this is working now is nasa is buying services so they're no longer buying rockets or landers which they will then own operate Instead the philosophy is To buy a ride for example a seat On a human land or or by space for a payload so these companies that are responsible for indemnifying Making sure they have a proper insurance for losses They take A bit of the risk and and then proceed along those lots now. What that means is that the companies then they own the intellectual property they owned landers they rockets they own the The other transportation devices. So that means they can sell seats. They can sell payloads to for example a european space agency Or the russian space agency or individual companies. That might want to puts a payload on the moon Investigation in this kind of a lower gravity environment so it's much more entrepreneurial than what we had before and it lowers the cost to the taxpayer for doing all these things by the artist program. Which is the new human programs. The moon the Recently released cost to get the first woman in the next man to the moon by twenty twenty four is a factor of ten less than the apollo program. Yeah it's interesting. I remember jack I was involved a little bit on the economic side of the next generation. Space legal program two thousand two thousand one two thousand two timeframe and this was a program was supposed to replace the shuttle and we did not go forward with it and i guess so. What was the arranged with the russian system to get their astronauts into space station. Yeah the the problem was that you might recall The shuttle accident that occurred in two thousand three And then president. George w bush declared that the shuttle really wasn't safe And that needed to be replaced and it took a while. We're still in the process of of fully replacing it. The last shuttle launch was twenty eleven If i remember correctly so in the meantime in order to get to the space station What we did is contract with the russians to use their soyuz spacecraft to go back and forth the space station so we. What we did is the buy seats. Those seats cost about seventy five or eighty million dollars so they weren't cheap but eventually got us back and forth. He said before we get the details of the Admission stack help philisophical question so way we have technology advancing the about conflict. Television's really taking off machines. Getting lot smarter What does sort of the basis for sending humans Could be not accomplished thing that human could do with machines if that's a good question i'm glad you answered that you ask that question because Excuse me i think what we're looking for now is is Really different mode for doing work on services like the moon or mars. Excuse me in that. We unlike apollo you had a single astronaut. Geologists such as astronaut harrison schmitt on all seventeen doing classic field geology. With a shovel to now advance unit twenty-first-century. We're gonna to do. Is i like to say we're going to bring Silicon valley with us to the moon. So we're going to bring advanced robotics. Be telly operated. That will use a machine. Learning artificial intelligence And will team with the astronauts so that they will these. These rovers advance scouting. They will identify interesting places and then the role of the astronaut is to make critical decisions on what to investigate What the samples. Look like i. i still think it's true. I've been told from my colleagues who are geologists stromer But who are uninsured. Scientists in that the difference for example between. Let's say the The curiosity rover on mars. And what it's been doing and having a human on mars that the work that the curiosity rover has done last seven years could be done in two days by geologists. a that's the difference and to also bring back. You know better selected samples and so forth. So there's no replacing humans and that's not going to happen anytime soon but you you do your point being. You only wanna use humans when you actually have to. Because their time is valuable and they're expensive and also Walking around even on the surface of the moon is dangerous. Because the you know the a space where the asian micrometeorites another possible dangerous but going into this new environment. I think what we're going to be able to do is reduced risk and improved efficiency. The i don't remember the numbers but a human Mission is about ten x the cost of a non human mission. Obviously the the efficiency and like you say what begin out of it different but guess on the cost side. It's about the fact of a magnitude different you know. That's hard to say because robots still are very limited in what they can do. They're just so many things that only humans can do is a little bit of apples and oranges but yet you're probably right that on the ballpark about a factor of ten. Maybe even more. But there's also much more than a factor of ten improvement in efficiency. So you know. Those costs will balance out and obviously the advantage of a human is You know they've been. The unexpected happens in michigan learning in As long as you have heard of data to teach a machine but then the unexpected happens machines. noel exactly. The rover gets stuck. It suffers a mechanical problem. That If you have a human there at least in the vicinity can help fix it. And move orders you know i think about for example servicing of the hubble space telescope and that was done five times by human astronauts and The astronauts such as john grunsfeld did to the servicing missions was very clear that the telescope could not have been repaired in upgraded by anything other than humans because the tab the complexity of the task the ability to be able to get in and To make repairs Make on the spot. Decisions just You know there was no replacing that so hopefully humans have a few more years of Do i think we've got many years to tell you the truth. I think it's going to be you know in reading some of the literature. I think it's going to be a quite a long time if ever that. We have truly Intelligent self aware machines can operate with the same decision making kick be very good at repetitive calculations outstanding job of there but You know making creative innovative entrepreneurial. Decisions were We're nowhere close to that yet So i do that. A multiple missions being planned An international collaboration so he's the first one that is supposed to take off as leave. Yeah artists is the new name for the human missions to the moon Artemis in greek mythology was the sister of apollo The twin sister of apollo. She's the goddess of the moon. So that's very appropriate. Since nasa has already declared bet up for that first landing which nasa has been planning for twenty twenty four would Would have that first woman in the next man on the surface the first expedition by humans to the moon in the twenty first century. So optimistic applaud. Its name the program programming program. Yeah exactly right so so andrade damasio multiple things going on And so do we have sort of a space station like that is going to orbit the out. Yeah in fact. That's honored design. And we'll be under construction in the next few years has called the gateway lunar gateway. And it's it's not like the space station in the sense of being gigantic And being really limited to that single orbit the gateway is really more of a spacecraft is going to have a pulse in system using a new generation of solar electric bad is ion propulsion That will be piloted for potential for optometry use in going to mars. I have just a couple of modules that will be there it will be a place where astronauts coming from the earth on on the orion spacecraft which is a it plus the space launch system is a heavy lift vehicle that will take astronauts the moon they will dock at the gateway and then they will get into a reusable lander go to the surface. Come back in that lander and then the next crew that comes in will do the same thing so you don't throw everything away like we did during hollow in the nineteen sixties again. The reusability idea is Is key to keeping the costs down so so it is more dealer so can't be attached as as alright right. Ds change in the future. Cab edge more against it. We can in fact The japanese space agency jaksa recently committed to fly a module And nasa has invited others such as the russian space agency to think about them attaching A module as well so it definitely is modular. That way you can add habitats you can add laboratories And can can grow over time. But it's also the the idea is that it's going to be long duration spaceflight and it's away way from the earth's magnetic field so you've got the full range environment of what you would have going to mars. So i think nasa all also looks at. This is a prototype of the vehicle that would be sent to mars. Lucchese david some Conversations yet again. Remember that To go to mars you would rather start off. Start off from the moon. Is that still thinking or that. Exchange i don't think that's been decided but there's this potential real advantages of a loon. First of all launching from the moon versus the earth requires much less thrust. What what we call delta the. That's the change in velocity to Get off there. Because there's only one sixth gravity on the moon and secondly if we're successful in mining water from the minute we know now there's considerable amount of water at the polls of the moon That's hydrogen and oxygen. We can convert that potentially into rocket fuel. You wouldn't have to bring that from earth so the costs associated with launching some could be substantially reduced in doing this from the moon versus from your so people are actively working that right now and seeing if that might be the way to go i of think that might end up being How missions to To mars or undertaking so under optimus Are there plans to actually create a habitat a big enough habitat for people to stave or extended period of time. So nasa has designs. And once again i should mention this is. This is all international Insa is involved. The european space agency is involved in providing a module for the service module for the orion. It also will be working on the gateway. The canadian space agency is providing the robotic arm And the same will be true on the surface The idea is that the first few missions will of just get started That first nation in twenty twenty four is planned to go to the south pole of moon. Will we've never been to before and look at the water. Ice situation there but Over time by the end of the decade the expectation is that will have multiple habitats. And we'll have people staying there for long periods of time like the arctic station. It's run by the national science foundation. The mcmurdo station as called in which you have a number of scientists come in and visit for anywhere from a few weeks to staying for year here so salama but when the next generation space program was in progress space. Too big big project. I would imagine spacex Others cab this business plan so what's the clamps time Do that The gay yes. So it'll be somewhere between three and five days to get from the earth and you're right about. The tourism spacex already has a fide a japanese businessman. If i remember correctly who has bought a A ride not the surface of the moon but to orbit the moon on a spacex vehicle. Sometime in a in a few years but the it'll be in a three to five days to get to the gateway and then Another day to get down to the surface. So i fully expect by the end of the decade especially given the accessibility to the moon by the private sector and by isa companies That they will be selling seats to wealthy individuals to spend a A summer holiday on the moon is so if the if the gateway is expandable perhaps Taxpayers can make some money nasa. Well it might be. Yeah but but once again this is. The transportation for the most part is probably not going to be through nasa but by these individual companies who own their own rockets their spacecraft and now they will sell seats to to wealthy tourists. yeah and so You you mentioned the european space agency. You mentioned the canadian space agency of so. Is this like the space station. A larger collaboration or those are the three major ones. Yeah it is and you're right. There are Oh gosh there's probably a dozen or so. Companies countries rather involved in the international space station and nasa envisions this much the same thing And i to. I order all the countries that are involved in. The international space station have been invited to become involved with the gateway And so as i mentioned several have accepted with With enthusiasms others are still keeping that around and take a quick break jack. Benny come back to talk about the radio. Frequency of savitri on the far side of the more that you're designing you bet sounds good. This is a scientific sense. Podcast providing unscripted conversations bit leading academics and researchers on a variety of topics. You like to sponsor this podcast. Please reach out to in full at scientific sense dot com back Jack you're talking about upcoming missions to the moon Some of the manned mission some of some of the technology that you're sending up there there is a gateway bridges like the space station but attested propulsion its zone. Sorta are based entity source. And it's more dealer things could be attached to it. That may be subject is imploding. Creating that a launchpad so to speak to go to mars perhaps habitats that a large announced a mining for water mighty for hydrogen and other things and so he the program is called autonomous. So could be portal light program and underneath optimists. There are various things being planned right. So what are the The primary objectives all of those radius approved betas projects. I should say under under optimus. Yeah we'll go. let me let me start off by just looking at the difference with The apollo program because the apollo program ended fairly abruptly once the political goals were reached and it was never Really a sustainable program so Nasa and i think all of the governmental space agencies are looking for is for arsonist to be the beginning of a sustained presence on the moon and in space and using the moon as a stepping stone for human and robotic exploration of the solar system including getting the mars so the philosophy of artists is really quite different. So you're there the stay So you need to figure out how to live off the land. So that does mean as you're saying mining's water being able to grow crops being able to manufacture Equipments the habitats themselves from the From the of the regular or the soil material so using the the kind of advanced manufacturing capability three d. printing Electrolysis so that's a really different approach. And it means that what will be worked on is not just get there but a flag in the ground rather in full of soil and return on instead it means You know how do you figure out how to be there for the long haul so that means than learning how to to excavate how to build How to really maintain a life in a in a certain sense of independence. Part of the reason you want to do all that is because that's exactly what's going to be

"We now have passed the two hundred, thousand person milestone. Desk from coronavirus. Anthony Fauci is called the stunning. Obviously, very upsetting. What's what's your react with reaction to this? I think it's troubling whether we're looking in the Review Mirror at the past six six, almost seven months now, and how did we get to two hundred thousand and I don't know a public health expert who believes that that number should not be significantly lower. you know this is a deadly virus. Of course, you're going to lose some people but you know the president's handling of it is the number one issue in the Campaign Supreme Court pick not withstanding and so I think in the rear view mirror it is sad sobering numbing I do these numbers every day and I stay up at night crunching them looking for changes in the trends and I don't pretend to be a scientific expert but it is it's depressing So two hundred, thousand Americans that's grand rapids. Michigan. That Salt Lake City Utah at Huntsville Alabama just wiped off the map just just gone. In seven months, six months really before when the first death. If you think about that, it's just it. It is mind blowing and so then you look forward and at the moment there were fifty one thousand plus new infections confirmed yesterday we're going back up We're not coming down You know there's just no way to swallow a process two, hundred, thousand dead Americans were about to hit seven million cases. Every one of those numbers is a person it's your brother, your sister, your son or your daughter, your neighbor, your friend, your colleague. The numbers can get the numbers get so big sometimes I think we kind of IMP de personalized them or impersonal is them well, we can't do that and I don't care what your politics are. We should never do that and I it is it painful looking backwards jevon mortuary. But when you looking forward we're heading we're we're right now going back up. So. That means more infections and that inevitably means more deaths the doctors will tell you they're better at treating this now. So the you know the death rate would not be as high as it was back at the peak of all this but still especially. When the all the experts tell you, it is preventable. Any is a crime.

You mentioned Cristiano you mentioned the Stove House I was looking at the camp that looks like another really interesting outdoor space and the von Braun Center and the the Mars Music Hall looked fantastic. He talk a little bit more outside of the US rocket and space center what there is to do in Huntsville. So. Just, you know. All of the things that you mentioned are things that had come about within the past five years the obviously the brown centers around longer than that. But most us a call was just open earlier this year and. They're going to be bringing in different music acts that that we probably haven't seen in hustle for the BBC. Brings in.

Alternative genres. You know that's GonNa. That's GONNA. Bring some really unique acts really added that. The camp. Awesome of one of my favorite places in Huntsville a at his age.

Oh okay. And so. Moved off soms. With one named. Cuffy headed. Hannah's. Sh. We were real happy with clash hinders.

"And now we're going on to Mars. So the as less system, the space launch system being designed by NASA I'm a lot of that work at a lot of the propulsion work is done here in Huntsville, so. We're continuing to make our name for ourselves. In that space literally the NFL. And Designing the rockets that are going to take us a further into into deep than we have ever been before. Grayson Huntsville's not just a museum. It's an actual working facility they're still. Marshall Space. Flight Center. They're still doing all of that were over there on the rich and arsenal in what is there to do with the Space Center for family. Defense my your. Recruiting, exhibits. Right now is is actually probably my favorite exhibits that they've ever had the rocket center. It's it's actually the. Exhibit that focuses on the? Apollo Eleven. Mission the first mission that took successfully that took people to the moon. Back in nineteen sixty nine and it's fascinating. You know that got artifacts from that. Artifacts from President Kennedy e-ends letters from his wife Jackie in it's just it's very fascinating exhibit so those. End, they kind of run the gamut from. Betty so they do exhibits on technology. Math in really making that interesting two kids in making that kind of. If, you're going to the rocket center earned and maybe you're isn't into math I know that I'm still as an adult. Foster that interest and kind of getting them interested in that. And of course, you can go into the day since center and see the full scale replica of the Saturn five rocket It's ash is actually a national landmark. And they've got a a sitting. Display of the space shuttle. So you can walk around and. It's mind blowing to seeing how large the these things were on the rockets in the shuttles and. It's just fascinating. And a main to throw in and they're like I. Know you think hose go look at Espace Museum go round the History Museum or they have is they have like the gravity of they have where the three you up in the air. They have a Morris Grill you get to learn about a monkey named mistaker Soleil into space, and you can lead Anna at her grave because she lived up respite. After Space Rocket Center. So not only do you see experiences as look at this history of? Have Rides climbed walls that have on simulators that you can do. Hands on stem and then. To go along with that just outside the rocket park and their gift shop is amazing. one of my favorite things that they've just added was intuited planetarium. So you. Giant screen and it just makes you think. I don't know it made me think how time I in this world is able to just kind of. A little bit and saying, well, you know here Huntsville Alabama that will you here in the United States for your here in the world you're here in the Milky Way and you're here in space and you just gosh. Really, interest was out way for kids to see explore. The planetarium was opened year in. It's incredible. It is a state of the art facility. It is truly one of the most cutting edge planetarium's that you are gonNA find in the United States. So to best. You get kind of the the vesicles world. Especially you're coming in with a family you have the rise and you have the kind of amusement park all. Of It and you can experience that but it's also you can feel good as a parent because it's also educational in. It's not just. Roller coasters popcorn walk. Feel like your kids are are. Something from that experience yeah. Well Beth. What about a space camp? I'm sure it's been hit hard by the pandemic. Are there are there ways at listeners can actually support the institution? Fiscal play for a really hard time. A lot of the money comes from people all over the world traveling area of and and to be able to haul a camp safely during a worldwide pen to make just a challenge.

Um, do you think life exists outside of the earth? Well, I mean, that could go two ways that could be like what kind of like life on other planets or like life. Once we've left this earth who I never thought about it. I definitely believe how definitely believe that life continues. And we leave this earth. You know, I have Call it faith for a reason. But I have faith that life is going to go on as we were when we leave this earth, and it's gonna be even better than it is here. I kind of read That question is like another planet. I don't even know aliens. I might think there's plant life and I mean there's life is anything right? You know, if you look at go to Huntsville and you look at the pictures from the Hubble Space, the telescope and you and you see how vast The universe is You know, it just stretches credulity that there's not something else out there Well, and I would. That's a whole lot of space to not have anything else out there. Yeah, well, because when you think about think about it like this, all right, so a lot of arguments are well, it's too hot on that planet or it's too cold on that planet. How many things do we have? Just think about plant life that survive and deserts and the other ones survive in really cold weather. And you know all that kind of stuff or even insects do speaking of nasty creatures where this is going Oh, my gosh. So this is a getting to know you so just a letter. But you know, there's the number one thing I'm the most scared of in the whole world. Snakes. I hate snakes. I don't even like dead snakes. I don't like snake skins. I don't like snake. Anything. I'm snakes or terrible to me. So I pulled into my driveway yesterday. And I got out and thought there was this giant like hoes in our yard like in the driver just couldn't even a froze. I was like, What is that thing? It was literally five feet long. Block and sick And then I saw it. Move, and then I came in. There was like Dad seen your face when you came. Come here. Come here. I was like why? What is it? Yeah, they got you. It was these creepy is curious. Oh, and and you know what The thing is. It has a hole in the ground right by drop. Well, we gotta figure lives there. It's been living there probably has babies there and and the other thing about it is, I think Terra minimum exaggerate. Nothing was about five feet of it was just finally down next to it, which is huge. But some of its tail was doing the grail and its markings made it look like like a copperhead or it was creepy. Let it but its head was rounded so that that tells See that? It's not that I don't care what his back looks. I don't care what it looks like. It is a snake, so I'm sure people some people are probably listening. This going. Oh, that's ah, blah, blah, blah snake. But I don't know if anybody was to call and tell us what kind of snake that Although I don't really care. I want it going. I wanted to be yesterday. Snake. I want to be someone else's snake. Apparently we have a pet snake. Now that we didn't know we had and maybe some, baby Oh, stop that. Stop saying that because I think that is the truth that looked like a big old pregnant snake. It was pretty nasty. It was anyway, so I don't know if there's other creatures. I hope they're not snake like that's a plan, their planets. There's gonna be other ward. What do you think?

Travel to Alabama

"Welcome traveler I'm your host Chris Christensen just see if we don't deliver on that word epic that I put in the intro. We've got lots to talk about as we talk about Alabama. I'd like to welcome the show. Larry Beiber who is a freelance travel, writer and editor also has his own website at Larry Bloomberg. Dot Com, and also at civil rights travel dot com, and he's come to talk to us about Alabama Larry Welcome to the show. Let's great to be here, Chris. This is a show that is about a year and a half in the making at least not with Larry. We just got him involved recently, but I've done three trips to Alabama last year and a half and had been really wanting to do a show about it. But I really wanted to do it with somebody who knew more about Alabama than I did and Larry. You've lived in Alabama for eleven years. I, think. We say that's right over a decade. And you came there to work a job in the travel magazine industry at. At coastal living, which was based here as is southern living in cooking, light and a lot of other magazines. Why should somebody go to Alabama? There's lots of reasons and I think the place to start is that most people don't know about Alabama? They they know. Their stereotypes there's. There's what they've heard over the years, but the truth is the south remains one of the most colorful and least understood parts of the country and the best way to learn about. It is to go there, and it's easy. It's easy to do and this I. Think will turn People's view under head. It's the center of Civil Rights History which I think. A lot of people know in the best way to understand that as visit the sites where these famed events happened. But it's also got incredible food. One of the most vibrant food scenes in the country right now mountains in some of the best beaches in the country, if not the world, which again does not fit that stereotype that people have the deep south well. I'm going to be one of those people that admits that I Alabama was something like my forty seventh state to go to or something like that, and it was kept to the last somewhat because I grew up in the sixties, and my picture of Alabama was what I saw on the nightly news. It was that troubled. Civil Rights history that we talk about which we can. Celebrate what happened now and and what went on, but it was kind of tough to watch it all going on at the time, and that colored my views of Alabama for pope. And I have fallen in love with the state here in the last trips that I've gone through and a little surprised to say that because I didn't really expect to. But what would you recommend for an itinerary for Alabama? Alabama literally goes from the mountains to the seas in I I would start just for simplicity's sake in the north. In Huntsville and in the Florence area where you will see incredible NASA rocket history because I was intrical part of the NASA system, the NASA development and then. Some a rock and roll shrine in the muscle shoals hall of fame, and then down to Birmingham where you do find that civil rights history where a lot of those disturbing images happen half a century ago. Frankly and now it's one of the most vibrant food scenes in the country and a place. That really has a buzz to it. There's a lot of new parks architecture. There's a lot of people they may be. Decades ago would have left to go off to find their fortune in New York or Los Angeles. And now they're staying there and creating some wonderful things and then I. go down to Montgomery with the state capital. Eight incredible new memorial is just open. I don't know if you've seen that. The equal justice just there. The Lynching Memorial, which I was told by an architecture critic, maybe the most important memorial in this country in the decade. Right up there with the Vietnam war memorial to the victims of lynching very sobering in your face, challenging kind of place, then go out to places I don't think are as much on the radar for people as far as Alabama mobile is a surprise mobile I call the little easy, because it's a lot like New Orleans, but it's tiny. It's much easier to navigate in. It's a lot of fun and then down to this beautiful beautiful Gulf. Shore beaches, the white sands, sugar sand beaches that I literally I been in Borussia of all places in the Indian Ocean on the beaches, and I came to the Gulf coast the next month. For some reason, it just worked out in the Gulf coast. Beaches were better than what I had seen in the Indian. Ocean Sept-. Beautiful I will back you up on that end in both a surprise part and the beautiful part. That will give you a good week from north the sound that

"A mistake that many photographers make as they make a go at being a professional photographer. is believing that being a generalist is an advantage. Saying that you can photograph, anything doesn't leave impression with a client that you think it should make. Secondly. It leaves the photographer to be defined by what they're hired to do. Rather than by the work that they have a passion for. You may achieve financial success. But. It may not be the type of photography. Sings to your heart Alan Clarke had a clear idea of the kind photographer. He wanted to be and the kinds of photographs you wanted to make. Based in Nashville Tennessee his desire to be a photographer in the music. Industry could have led him to photograph. Country Music Stars. But. He didn't want his physical address to pigeonhole his photography or his aspirations. so He created his own path as a commercial editorial photographer resulting in a career that has allowed him to photograph the likes of Sir George Martin even. Hawk Bob Newhart and two former presidents. I hope this conversation demonstrates the importance of defining who you WanNa be and who you are as a photographer. This is about an annex and welcome back to the candidate frame. Are, I. Alan Welcome to the show. Thank you glad to be here so glad to get Nice Mike. Voice this should be. This is gonNA sound good? Stuff. You ever watched thirty rock now know. Alec, Baldwin and Will Arnett, both have amazing voices, and so they played that up a lot, and that's to our strengths as well so they had like a sexy voice off at one point. Close to each other, and be like I can do that and then they to be like. Yes, you can this. Man Gets. Today's the record this. The astronauts took off on the capsule and the rocket today and I know you're thinking. What you're talking about. You're saying. Neil. Armstrong! Yeah, it's a replica of his suit over a Hoodie. So Yeah I've completely nerd out today you've you've photographed a bunch of the of the suits. But where did the best nation begin? I think like most of us. You think of these images and you dream when you're a child like I was I wanted to be. An oceanographer wanted to be part of the cousteau. Society I wanted to be an astronaut and. Set in my second third grade class looked out the window and reflected on every port report card ever had. Would get these notes of our report cards to be like a you unsatisfactory. He just doesn't pay attention. He looks out the window constantly. That's what I got. Unsatisfactory what they had on the report Carsberg. Takes. A dreamer looks like when they're little. We have the album are recordings of the Apollo flight at my house, growing up so double album and it had pictures of the flight and I remember. I didn't think I really understood exactly what I was listening to just Kinda of thought, it will couple. At record on and just listened to it and look at looking at the pictures. I think it's probably still in my house somewhere. Let even though I don't have a record player anywhere near, let's. I, don't know I'm not one of those. Guys. Are. You saying you're not a hipster? Is that what you're saying? I think that by a couple of decades man I duNno, sometimes. My wife tells me their original hipster. Looking into some of this I'm like I. Don't know, but then I look at myself. When I do that. A you still have a record player and listen to things and she may be right. Working the idea that you want it to be able to photograph the spaces issue. Number of them have and you know I guess the idea came along Huntsville. Space and rocket center is only two and a half hours from Nashville so. have been going down there since I was a kid. My parents took me when I was little, and it just never stopped and something like a tradition. Take took my children there and. I've had photo shoots. Their showed up multiple times I. Don't think they. Enough to where they're sick of me, but it's pretty close. And just kept going there and going there, but then when I would do like photo shoots across. You know our great country. I would go to in in Boston there's A. Museum for JFK and I've been there and just seeing Johnson, space center in Houston of course, and all the different spots every time I get a chance I'll go and visit and just take my camera with me when I go, and my whole point is to just record these to record them like I would do it. Not like a tourist would try to actually light it really well, and sometimes you get permission to do these things, and sometimes you don't. But most of these things are on public display, and were American citizens, so we can kind of like just Bassani and people don't know this, but all all the museums in DC are all. All free to American citizens, because that's part of our taxes, and that's what it goes towards, and so you can kind of do anything you and requests, these types of things, so it started years ago through a space and rocket center, which was a privately funded thing, and it was on the redstone arsenal, the right next to the arsenal base course Verner von Braun worked out of Huntsville Developing Saturn five, and so it's steed like a weird thing like an Alabama of all places steeped in this rocket tradition. You know that know people just don't know about and they kind of had them. They're just to kind of hide them a little bit. Kept them safe there instead of putting them in a big city like DC or New York, but that's when the fascination started from as from a very early age, just repeatedly going down there and shooting these things and You know on crappier cameras when I was little like instamatic disclaimer. Even growing up as a for NYKANEN.

Grand Moon Landing Plans: NASA Awards Lunar Lander Contracts to Blue Origin and SpaceX

"From wonder. I'm David Brown. And this is business. Wars daily on this Wednesday may sixth ever since John F. Kennedy ask Congress to fund a mission to the Moon in nineteen sixty one presidents have been captivated by the dream of conquering the cosmos. I've believe that this nation should commit itself to achieving the goal before this decade is out of landing a man on the moon and returning him safely to the Earth. Why the Moon why Mars? Because it is humanity's destiny to strive to seek to find we will give NASA new focus and vision for future expiration. We will build new ships to carry man forward into the universe to gain a foothold on the moon and prepare for new journey to the world's beyond our own that of course was JFK followed by President. George H W Bush in nineteen eighty nine and his son. George W Bush in two thousand four. Both bushes attempted to chart new courses for America to return to the moon. But these initiatives failed other space exploration plans of struggled to is Congress. The American people grappled with conflicts over money and namely it became difficult for taxpayers to justify spending hundreds of billions of dollars in space instead of funding urgent needs here on Terra Firma as a result the last time in American set foot on the moon was was the Apollo Seventeen mission in nineteen seventy two now in twenty twenty. That conflict has risen once again. The White House wants to put the first woman and the next man on the moon by twenty twenty four. That's four years ahead of an earlier NASA plan. President trump ordered the speed up in two thousand seventeen to make the optimist moon landing program. Nasa needs a Lunar Lander a spaceship designed to ferry astronauts from Lunar Orbit to the Moon's surface and back again late last month NASA awarded three contracts to private companies to build just such a lander in total the space agency. Funded almost a billion dollars worth of design and development. One of those contracts went to a team led by Jeff bazars his company blue origin. That team was awarded the largest of the three contracts. Almost six hundred million dollars though. Use It to design a lander somewhat like the one used in the Apollo program. Elon Musk's spacex one. A one hundred thirty five million dollar contract to work on a gigantic reusable lander spacex his lander which reportedly can carry one. Hundred tons of cargo is based on. Its starship spacecraft. Eventually the starship is intended to transport people to Mars The New York Times reports. The third contract for two hundred fifty million dollars went to a team led by Huntsville Alabama Company dianetics. The three companies have ten months to develop their lunar landers new definition of a space race. Anyone at that point NASA will have a clear idea of which lender they'll choose one prominent company. They didn't make the cut. Boeing. Nasa didn't say why it declined to award Boeing contract according to the Guardian but in December test flight of its star liner spaceship failed. That test flight had no crew aboard but the star liner was built with the intention of transporting astronauts to the International Space Station sending astronauts to the moon by twenty twenty four. He is fraught with technical organizational and financial challenges. Perhaps the toughest one is the cost. Nasr's twenty twenty budget is more than twenty billion dollars in twenty twenty one. That budget will have to increase by three billion dollars to fund the Lunar Lander according to the Guardian NASA administrator. Jim Breitenstein Stein said the agency expects Congress to fund the Optimist Moon landing mission despite the economic toll the corona virus is taken on the American economy. It's

"Ramsey solutions all the center of the top are where the state guys how are you doing good welcome where you guys left so we live in Huntsville Alabama just down the road welcome good thing all the way up here to do a debt free screen yes there and how much have you paid off so we paid off fifty three thousand dollars and also on top of that we had another seven thousand dollars a week of cash flowed my school and trip to Ukraine which went to see my family that's where I'm from perfect but how long did this take you it took about seventeen months okay and your range of income during that time so when we started we made about ninety four thousand and this year will make about a hundred and ten thousand okay excellent what you guys do for a living I am a engine systems engineer and I work at the bank as the financial assistant perfect very good okay what kind of that was the fifty three thousand it was mostly student loans mine forty one thousand instant loans and twelve thousand on the car okay cool how long he has been married that's going to be two years and coming up on June fourth okay so this immediately after you got married you started on this yes it's a similar story how that all unfolds so it actually started earlier than that about ten years ago I have a I have two older sisters who are both married with beautiful families and they learned about you and then and they dragged me kicking and screaming to financial peace university local churches and made me go through it and it all went into one year and out the other how old were you then change I think it was nineteen okay yeah yeah okay yeah and I I of course I was the smartest person in the world of course I was considerably smarter than that so it but I knew of you and the fast four years later and I meet the love of my life and were engaged to be married it's about six months to go to the wedding and I got a job offer to move a thousand miles from where our family was in Minnesota Dunn on Lou right and so we talked and we agreed and I made the move ahead of time she stayed in Minnesota to finish planning the wedding and we you know I started trying to budget the move you know finishing off budgeting for the wedding we were paying for it ourselves for the most part the honeymoon and then moving our whole family down to Alabama so I was really digging into the spreadsheets like for the first time and I looked at how much you know how big a chunk of our money was going to be going towards debt and I realize like this is a lot of money this is really ridiculous we're gonna really do this for ten years or however long the student loans were in the car alone and so I just said you know what would happen if we do like that one we are Dave Ramsey guy said long ago sounds like how long will that take I'm an engineer and because I'm an engineer I'm a numbers guy I was really blown away it was like a year and a half but the numbers is what it would take and as you know we talked about it like Hey that's totally worth it let's go through financial university and and get ourselves on track an animated thing is we we started out and we had you know we made budgets together and we went to financial peace university right before a wedding and then actually again later on after we were married for you once good to really drive it home and we're making budgets together and at first we budgeted things like blow money and extra money for restaurants and extra money for entertainment and as we started paying off the debt and the sort of snowballed turned over and it picked up steam we got really really excited at the prospect of getting out of debt so quickly and we just caught all that extra stuff out and so we we were living on you know with a minimal budget knowing everything we could to death and for fun we would we had a subscription to Netflix love going on walks right and that's what we did for a year and a half okay enough and we also got extra jobs during that time wow very cool very cool so what do you tell people the key to getting out of that if you paid off fifty three thousand seventeen months you're successful what's the key I think for me the most important was is to see the light at the end of the tunnel to find inspiration from other people too and the main thing we did is when we were cleaning offices in the evenings which was really frustrating to go after first job to go to the second so we were listening to your podcasts a lot and is it really help seeing other people getting out of debt which make me just saying that okay we can totally do this if this people did this so that was just to get an expiration and also to find a partner contabilidad parent is very important and there is a very important verse in the Bible that I actually rode down doesn't mean I'm gonna forget it that's from Ecclesiastes chapter four nine two are better than one because they have a good return for their labor if either of them falls down one can help the other up and you definitely do fall down during this journey because there's a lot of temptation a lot of great great food around yeah we just want to go out and if you don't want to cook and stuff like that so we were there for each other so that was really important for us very cool well in you like you said you plug back into it if you class and write me some people on their journey on to there was there was that and then we also started leading classes the record buying in a few class thank yeah and your sisters are off in the background when he finally got you have no idea so intense and they were before is right and there is another thing I wasn't wanted to mention is do not be afraid to take any extra jobs or maybe some jobs and people are not willing to take for us to take a clean job was not like that some people were like very skeptic about it especially people who are hiring us because we got to know he's engineer it's like a joke are you cleaning offices at night so we just took it and like we just decided there's no shame in making money when you're making it right that's yeah yeah my friends are giving me a lot of crap about that right scientist by day office cleaner by night well why not yeah well an innovative does the way you were brought up you should hear from the Ukraine right that did that change your perspective on that kind of a thing like we just do whatever I need to do is we can do it for sure predetermined it'll be okay right to be honest with you I did not have any dad my family didn't serve me having it it was really bad yeah I want to do anything to god yeah like I grew up my my family lives on the farm so we were like doing a lot of labor I was not afraid of any type of job so we totally can do this yeah fine yeah yes

"To us in Huntsville and she's asking I heard you talking about getting your kids off to college when we did actually yes we did that's going to be me in two years of my twins are now juniors in high school we're about to begin visiting different colleges and I'd like to know how many different colleges you looked at during your searches and is there a better way to go about visiting colleges to learn the most about the schools in the area as I read that. I think about for years we've always talked about family travel but now I guess we've graduated I go to college college torture simply not college guidance experts a lot we can say here so I don't really want to go from well I think the first thing is I would get my mind set I don't usually say this but I would say act like a tourist when you do this because I think it's really important to treat it as a road trip and to treat it as a fun and I I really do and I think that you need to get outside of the campus area when you think about it you're gonna be looking at schools for hopefully at least four years get out and about and see what is in the surrounding area I think it's important the student looks at the school from those aspects as well because they're gonna be there for a plea for years and to save money I highly recommend staying in hotels outside of the campus area we have found that they are less expensive and they do force you to look at get to know the general manager a little bit because when you go back for parents we think he might actually get a discount quickly yes you know something I will say that I did our youngest son certainly benefited from many of the school of business that his older brother was interested in so that helped him and us for sure the second time around well it's something to do with our older son to make the process a little less stressful for him he shares my passion for barbecue so I took him to Memphis on a business trip and we enjoyed some great barbecue at the rendezvous and also one should tires were I think that's a local landmark where the cooking oil something like a hundred years old but that's another story for the time anyway what we were there we also made an appointment at the university of Memphis a school he had no plans to attend but allowed him to go through the Tor without any pressure he was able to ask questions as they came to him to see things that interested him and that experience eventually helped him to be better prepared and also as well for the ten colleges that we visited with him so yeah that's a great example of again bringing it back to trying just really have some fun with it as well. this is cool so that this lower the pressure or next emails from Tom listens to us in Vancouver he's asking why do some cruise lines a tour operators charges supplemental for solo travel I'm single and can't always ask a friend to travel with me to help me save money is there a way around this unfair policy will turn. some thoughts on this and we also asked our producer Valerie to look into it a merry where you wanna start well she did a great job helping us research this I know you really can't get around get around it if you see it and it exists however what you can do a solo demographic is much of a solo traveller demographic is much larger these days it's a lot easier travel companies have gotten on board with enticing solo travelers and that market so you'll find cruise companies that will waive that single supplement fee you'll find tour companies willing to waive that you know you have to do your research sometimes you have to be willing to travel kind of last minute you may have to be willing to travel shoulder season if you can only travel in the summer and you want to get around that you definitely have to do your research but it is possible more and more today travel companies are beginning to really anti so what I I know. we certainly want to attract a solo travelers we talk about that but some other companies out there that are not affiliated with the intrepid travels one classic journeys is another we've had Bruce Poon tip on with G. adventures they do a nice job with it I can take it now that's going to be for a younger audience but I think he might be somebody will yeah is track but has a lot of solo travelers and again you may pay with them sometimes a single supplement fee but much lower fees they have and if you're willing to have a roommate you don't pay anything on the older side our country walkers will be another crazy thing extractions that you don't pay right around have around the area we've got more emails I think we're gonna hold those will do more next week folks so please keep sending them to us at our end world travel dot com and we will get to those are for sure right now I want to thank Tom and Lisa further questions today you can send us your travel questions or comments or stories.

"In the death chamber and Huntsville, this is also interesting because prosecutors concede that Murphy did not shoot the police officer. He didn't even know the police officer had been shot until sometime after the incident happened, but he was sentenced to death under a very controversial provision of Texas law called the law of parties, which allows anybody who participates at a crime to face the top count sentence. And that's what's happening. Patrick murphy. Now, the prosecutor in the case Toby shook told me they wouldn't have been able to ambush. Officer Hawkins had Patrick Murphy, not acted as a lookout and notified the others that the officer was coming. So he is he was clearly a full participant in that murder, and that's the justification behind the loft parties, even though he wasn't inside the sporting goods store. He gave a written confession and said he had with him in the getaway car at a are fifteen a loaded shot got into revolvers, and he was ready and prepared to start a firefight with police if police got anywhere near him and the other sex escapees, so he is sentenced to be executed tonight. The law of parties has already not been overturned by a by a court. He obviously has more appeals going for him. But right now, it looks like we will see the last two Patrick Murphy tonight. And that's not going to. I don't think break anybody's heart. He wasn't a choirboy even before this thing happened according to. Patrick Murphy was serving a fifty year sentence in the condo Leonid for sexual assault. He had a history of violence as a juvenile at had molested his stepsister as a juvenile, and that was the sort of individuals that made up the Texas seven, which is one of the things that gave them that kind of notoriety after their escape it was like something out of the era of John Dillinger when they escaped from the coddling. But now four of them are dead of thanks to the executioner another one killed himself and tonight, it looks really really likely the Patrick Murphy is going to join them. All right, Jim. Thank you very much. News director, Jim Forsyth morning commentary. Everything you did. And did not know about minute nobly next nearly.

"Sully in Huntsville, what's up? Hey, mike. Good. What's up? Nothing. Nothing aggravates me more than when somebody from roots for another team has to take shots at. In this case a met fan. Take shots at Yankee. Yeah. But it Vegas sets the Yankees at twelve wins more than the Mets. I mean, there's a reason for that. A much better team. Don't give away money. They have a much better team. That's why. Yeah. Listen, just you know, just making a point for my own team. And you were you were right on weight. Can't do what he did last year and the heart because he was that was a pretty good year. So I would expect something a little less shortstop position is going to be down because DeeDee being out. No question. But Mike one eighty six and eighteen Amish from Sanchez. I if he doesn't do better than that. The Yankees are also the biggest thing you saw last year was the Yankees didn't play. Well, when judge was out. Judges. Judges their star judges now. He has separated themselves. Listen, I've watched it happen. Judges taken over the team has separated himself from everybody else. He he is. Now, the man it's no longer even it's no longer equal. This is now judges team. It's his team. He's the star. It's his team. He's the man there's no longer. Well, who's the man is this guy is that guy? No, no. This is now judges team. He's the star. This is he is the guy. Everybody knows it. Everybody walks around their knows it everybody in the locker room those at all the players know this is now his team. It's his time. It's his team. He is about to go to the top of the class. And I'm not telling me about and trout what I'm telling you is he's going to push trout for the best player in the league. That's how good he is. And listen and bets Mookie Betts that good too. So he's both of them. They're that good. They're different. But they're that good and judges that good. Judge has a chance to be the best player in the league. Now, he's got to prove he can be. He's got the ability to do it. He's got to stay healthy. It's got to go out there. What you saw from judge that you really liked his his game. Kind of settled in. His at bats Scott easier. He didn't get fooled as much. He played within himself. He played the outfield. Superbly? He looked very comfortable in the outfield. He looked very comfortable in the limelight. He it all came together. He just started to. When you're going to be a real star. There's a time when you just meld into that star. I saw that happening with him last year when he came back. I saw he was different. He had melded into that star. He's he is grown up already. He's the guy the whole team knows it. Everybody knows it the team those at the management knows that the owner knows that they all know it judges the man. George and wants. So what's up, George? I Mike thanks for taking my call. I have two questions to you. I know you went to the Super Bowl. I watch the game on TV. At least three times we'll McVay called on a third to passing the ball. And the announcers were furious. Why the hell's he passing pre times incomplete passes chance to yards and perhaps to downs? Well, they they weren't very good running the ball in that game. They they weren't very confident. They could run the ball. They weren't confident the whole day. They rent a bowl terribly. Mike two yards. Well, doesn't mean they're gonna get my second question to you is what chance to give those over to repeat as national champions, very little really. They're not a championship team. They're a good team. The win a couple of games. They got a couple of players who fill booth can take over a game. Pascal's a very good player. They have two very good players. They rookies are starting to come to gather. It's not the rookie. They expected. It's bay was really stepped up to be the other guy. They're capable of winning two or three games. They're not capable of winning six. Two or three would be a wonderful year. They're capable of winning two or three. They can also get beat in the first round. I mean that type theme I mean, it could happen. But I don't think they will. But I think if they if they go to the Sweet Sixteen I think they had a great year anything past that is gravy. I don't think they're going to the final four this year back after this. As the tech world.

"Hour marks in Huntsville, Alabama. Hey, mark. How are you? Hey, Dave, doing great and pleasure talking with you today, sir. What's up? Well, I'm fifty seven year old retired military guy. Government contractor down here in Huntsville, and my wife, and I last month just completed baby step two took us four years. Congratulations. Thank you, sir. Starting on baby. Step three. I guess my question is kind of twofold. We are in a house. That's not our forever home. And when we get done with baby step three it took me a while to kind of go through and get my investments going between my wife, and my IRA's, and my 4._0._1._K we have about one hundred ninety thousand in investments. Good question is should I increase the investments and not just pay the minimum on the house? Or should we still try to pay off this house, even though this ever home? Well, I would do the baby steps in order, even though from your forever home, by the way. Thank you for your service. Twenty year. And you've got that coming. Actually did about twenty eight years. So yeah. My military time from that. And I have some disability that I get great. Okay. Cool. Well, then what I would do is when you finish baby. Step three of start baby steps four five and six run. Simultaneous four is fifteen percent. No more. No, more of your income going into retirement. You've got a really good star couple hundred grants not a bad start. And then if you have kids that you're paying for college, that's baby. Step five other kids involved. No, well, our son. I mean, we have our son, but he's in his thirties and has a family in South Carolina. Okay. So there's no baby step five because there's no college. Okay. So by force fifteen percent of your income going into retirement any money you can find above that throw it at the house. Now, here's what will happen when you sell the house, and you move to the quote forever house, which I'm not sure there's ever been one of those. Anyway, nobody stays forever in these houses. We don't think we're going to. But you know, if you sell it, and you've paid it off or you paid way down they're going to give you a check at closing. Money's not going away. Okay. And the worst case scenario is is that it ends up being your forever and housemates paid for. Right. And so once it's paid off. Then I would start doing additional investing it by step seven, and I would make some of that investing non retirement because you're probably going to add that money for your additional. If you move up in house, you'd need some money in addition to the sale because your cell, the one you move in pay cash for the one you land in quote, unquote at retirement, hopefully forever, and and if you want to have some with that, but I want you to take that one nine, and let's just keep piling on their fifteen percent of your household income. What is your household income? Two hundred fifty thousand a year. Well, done very well, not so fifteen percents only twenty grand a year. Okay. Got no dad except the house. Fifteen percent twenty right here. You still got plenty of wiggle room in this budget to chunk on this house, Wendy, you think you'll move to the quote forever house. We've been talking about it probably within seven years or so plus or minus a few years, depending on how things work with the with the contracting world with the government, and is the location that keeps you from doing that or something else. It's primarily the location. I mean, huntsville's a great great town. Great city. Yeah. But you know, we we enjoy the eastern Tennessee, western North Carolina. Okay. Okay. So that's that's like retirement when you're done doing your contracting work in Huntsville in seven eight years that is going to be your retirement place. Then. Okay. Cool. Very cool. And so how's price might not go? What's the house? You're in worth. As a matter of fact, we just recently had had it looked at in the praise and we refinance to a fifteen year and it appraised for three forty five. Okay. Well, you turn out in the house for three forty five. Right. So if you got the thing paid off, it's no loss. So just increases your cash flow until you make the move. But and you probably will have it paid off within the seven years. I bet you do your income with the situation you describe to me it all you know, it's just like military. It's all about discipline to vote all but you can do it again. Thanks for your service. And thank you for your call. Jason is with us. Jason's tampa. Hi, jason. How are you?
