Missions to Mars, the Moon and Beyond Await Earth in 2021
"He may have been asked to have that. Removed nasa net nasa gets pumped for twenty twenty one with hype video full of moon dreams and mars. Hope nasr's big plans for the year but doing space is still pretty hard. Last year was a big one for space missions. We got We got man missions back to the international space station. After many years of the shuttle being retired it's amazing. How long we relied on the russians. Now we don't have to write them a check but the russians are still lifting astronauts. The iss many most of them are from other countries. Now the space agency released a video previewing hyping. His plans for the new year and the moon is the star of the show. Why are we going back to the moon. Really you know honestly is that. Make any sense for some of you. Don't think we went to the moon begin with i think they ought to land on one of those missions close to a nasa landing site from the early days in. Show us some of that stuff. Did they left while the video. Swallow hope and optimism We know that the space launch system has delays is largely because of coronavirus pandemic parts parts parts and parts and parts and parts. I'm having issues getting some stuff here too that i need because there's no parts the first big test of the orion spacecraft is in the works for twenty twenty one with artists one. But we'll have to wait and see if the unscrewed mission able to launch this year after all and Of course the presser veers roller is set for a landing on mars on february tnt. So we got that to look forward to the twenty one minutes of how or whatever it's called If all goes well mark the start of a long range plan to bring martian rock samples back to earth and of course the much much delayed. James webb space telescope is still on the calendar for an october thirty first launch date. We spent so much money on the james webb space telescope. I just everyone will probably be holding their breath all the way to or visit with this thing and at the same time. The hubble is well you know well at its end of life you know well close to its end of life issues and we got a lot of the hubble is operating in your systems have died and there's no way to go and repair it so I wonder what they're gonna would have to do. If the james webb space telescope had issues once they launched but so
Fiery crash of SpaceX's Starship rocket ignites dreams of future spaceflight
"Late may spacex would supply the launch vehicle and spacecraft that nasa would need to deliver astronauts to the international space station. They made it the first time. The astronauts would launch from american soil. Since the us discontinued the space shuttle program in twenty eleven. The dragon spacecraft brought douglas hurley and robert benkin to the iss and the mission emphasized how the private space industry is to america's space strategy. At least in the near future and in a test. Late in the year spacex his starship s an eight vehicle exploded while executing a belly flop maneuver. The maneuver was going as planned at least for a while. But then one of the spacecraft's engines shutdown down unexpectedly and the vehicle crashed in a fiery explosion. Now fortunately this was an unmanned test. No one was hurt there were. There's no one aboard. There was no one on the ground that was hurt and it was generally understood that this maneuver was going to be really difficult to pull off and it was likely that some sort of failure would occur in other words. They had pretty much thought that this was a possibility and the goal of the test was really together. More information about the launch and the apogee of the flight path so the mission overall was not a failure. The spacecraft is a prototype of the class of vehicles. That spacex intends to use for missions. That will go to places like mars in the future. It's pretty exciting

New Doorway to Space with Airlock on ISS
"The doorways on the international space station of work just fine for the past twenty years but as more researchers expand the scope and size of their projects a larger doorway could open up space. This is a special series of innovation now. Celebrating twenty years of continuous human presence on the international space station to harp. Relieve the bottleneck. That sometimes happens on the international space station. As satellites experiments and larger payloads are received nanno racks. llc has built a new and different kind of doorway into space. The private company created the nanno racks bishop airlock module. That will serve as another door to the space station. The new airlock delivered on a spacex dragon. Resupply services mission is the first commercial. Airlock added to the station. This ship will provide five times. The capacity of the stations other operational air locks allowing for larger payloads to be moved inside and outside the station. The bell jar shape contains rows of tracks for mounting modules and housing electrical connections which can be configured in a variety of ways. This versatile design supports conducting experiments or deploying satellites simultaneously making space for a lot more stations
Learn how to use ISS tracking alerts to Spot The Station
"As the third brightest object in the sky it's easy to spot if you look up. This is a special series of innovation now celebrating twenty years of continuous human presence on the international space station. As the international space station passes overhead. It is sometimes visible to the naked eye. All sightings occur within a few hours before or after sunrise or sunset these times create optimum viewing periods as the sun reflects off the space station and contrast with the darker sky. The station will look like a fast moving plane only much higher and traveling much faster unlike planes. The station has no flashing lights and won't change direction. In the several seconds it's visible. But how do you know when to look up. you can sign up for email or text. Alerts at spot. The station dot nasa dot gov spot. The station will only send out notifications when you have the best opportunity for viewing and because the station's orbit takes it all around the globe. You could be in the right place at the right time of the day as the international space station streaks across the
Orbits are roadways in space: Heres why you should care
"So you have nice explainer on how orbits working and you talk to one of these professors who called orbits roadways in space. I i like that. I like that idea. How does orbiting around the earth work in. How do scientists and engineers actually ensure something like a satellite maintains a stable orbit around us orbits. I think are under appreciated. What you might not realize spaces actually pretty close. It's only about sixty miles up. Which yeah okay. That's a lot but you know if you get in your car and drive sixty miles. It's not going to some entirely new zone in the universe right but space is very different. It turns out the hard part about space is not getting up sixty miles. It's getting so that you're moving. Horizontally fast enough to stay in orbit. You come right back but if you go horizontally fast enough you stay in orbit. And that's where that roadways in space comment is germane because what it means. Basically you're going fast enough that you don't fall down and hit the earth you don't go you stay up there and it's it's pretty neat. There's some atmospheric drag but mostly if you put a satellite in orbit it just keeps whizzing around the earth. And that's pretty remarkable one of the actually. I was researching this story. What am i. The my favorite parts of it was looking at what is called newton's cannonball so isaac newton right gravity lights l. This stuff back in the sixteen hundreds he had actually a really good thought experiment that reveals a pretty clear way. How orbits work. he said. Imagine you're up at the of a very high mountain and you shoot a canon ball horizontally now if you shoot it. With a certain speed goes near flies a little ways and plops down hits. The earth fired a little harder. It goes farther and it's the earth but if you fire it at just the right speed the gravity that pulls the cannonball down exactly balances the curvature of the earth so it just keeps on going around the earth now and the real world. That's not possible because during the mountains. High enough in there's a resistance and all that kind of thing but it still shows. I think pretty elegantly. What in orbit is it's this balance of of an object spacecraft falling down because of gravity but also moving horizontally fast enough that it that it keeps on going around earth in in an orbit. Well that's an interesting trick because you talk about moving horizontally at the right speed. When i see rockets launched their. They're launching up vertically right not not horizontally. So how do you get from that. Tremendous bruce up vertically to a point where it goes horizontal and stable enough to actually maintain its orbit chirp. This is one of the tricks of rocket. Rocketry says why when people talk about rocket science. It's not easy right rockets. Actually almost immediately start turning sideways right after launch so at launch they go up and they use a lot of fuel to go up but the majority of the fuel they use is to go sideways so when you watch space shuttle or space x or any of these rockets you'll note that it starts tipping over towards the east usually and it tips over more and more and more and more. If you watch a spacex launch they actually have a very nice Three d computer view that shows the track of the rockets and you can see that very rapidly. It's going sideways more than it's going up. So the vast majority of the energy needed to put a rocket into orbit is pushing it sideways. Not up if you look at some of these rockets like new shepherd from blue origin. Jeff bezos says rockets startup. Those just go up and down. And that's actually a lot easier than going sideways. Which is what spacex does when it gets a satellite into orbit or in iss launch capsule with some astronauts in it. It's a lot harder to go sideways. Yeah you know you talk about this rocket science. This is not easy stuff calculating you know when it needs attorney or how it gets to the pre velocity. It actually maintains or like. How difficult is that to calculate. It's pretty difficult and you. It's not just the calculation it's also the execution so you have to steer the rocket and what you have to realize about a rocket is. It's you're sitting on top of a controlled explosion so you can think of something like unisom. Tnt blowing up or something. It's catastrophic huge release of energy. A rocket is the same kind of thing. It's a chemical explosion and you just control it just enough that the thrust in one direction. So it's pretty hard to get this balanced just right. It's easier these days because you have advanced. Computers have accelerometers all over the place that no just exactly how much thrust is pointing which direction and you have radar tracking stations that can give lots of details about the launch. So it's easier than it was gonna by apollo missions fifty years ago or something like that but yeah it's still hard.

"iss" Discussed on Small Steps, Giant Leaps
"That is absolutely true. When you reflect on the ISS team and success stories over these twenty years of continuous human presence. What are a couple of your favorites? You know what? That one of the favorite stories I have about ISS generically. Or tying the last conversation that I had talked about people into that conversation. Houston several years ago had the ill fortune of being on the dirty side of hurricane name Harvey that came in well south of us, and we all thought that we were going to get a little bit of rain and that was gonna be okay. Because it was gonNA come in south of us and we weren't GonNa get the brunt of the hurricane-force winds in Houston. As it turned out, it did come in south of us in the folks down south of us really got battered by those hurricane force winds. But what Herbie. Did was set up a chain of rain bands that that effectively rolled right over the city, a Houston and clear like where. Webster were Johnson Space Center is ray effectively straight up interstate forty five from Galveston to Houston just got rained on perpetually for five days. And it was a huge event. Everybody in Houston was somehow impacted. We we had hundreds if not thousands of of. Houses that were flooded and and cars were stalled and it was just a mess. As it turned out, there was a flight control team in mission control in Houston because we literally had not anticipated that Harvey was going to be that bad, right. We have a bunch of protocols that we use during hurricanes where we send people. To. Marshall Stand up a backup control center if we need to set her for hurricane and we've exercised that a number of times over the years. But because of what we thought was going to happen with this hurricane, we did not exercise protocol. Because we thought we were going to get some rain and it was GONNA be bad but it wasn't gonNA be terrible. No one ever expected the five hundred year flood. So we had a, we had a group of flight controllers who were in Houston in the control centre, and we actually had enough flight controllers there to to stand up to different teams. So each team was executing thirteen hour shifts with what our handover in between. Perpetually, we normally have three shifts a day. So we were down to just two. And they were literally sleeping in the control centre because they were trapped they're the only way that they'd get out of the control center is with a high.

We're going to go bill a facility on the moon more than likely. We're GONNA, go build a facility on Mars where people can live their lives for auct- wretches at a time. The biggest lessons learned that I would take away from us as being able to do that is it's it's not the hardware it's not the it's not the software it's not the Whizbang you know new drive that we've developed for Shum spacecraft. It literally is the people that make that happen right it's the people that work for the program. It's the people that worked for flight operations. It's the people that work in the engineering directorates and do all the tests analysis. I can't go do something that's as outrageous as bill the habitat for someone to live on the surface of boon for extended periods of time and not be an inaccessible danger without that person who did the all those tests on that software? Who did all that all those tests on that processor for the Otago system or that water system that toilet system or whatever system you want. That's the biggest it's.

The Case Against Google
"We're going to zoom in now on a detail in the lawsuit the Justice Department filed against Google this week. It alleges that Google paid Apple As much as $12 billion to be the default search engine for iPhones. Prosecutors say this proves that Google abused monopoly power to try to keep rivals down. We should mention Apple and Google are both financial supporters of NPR. NPR's Bobby Allen covers tech and joins us now, Bobby. Thanks so much for being with us, you gotta Scott. And what does the government contend the that this payment is evidence Google abuse power. To the heart of the government's case against Google is that it's grown so large it functions like a monopoly like an oil baron, or like a steel magnet. But instead of being an industrialist's, it has huge power over the Internet, which on its face is not illegal, but When a company gains this much power and throws its weight around to make sure nobody else can compete. That's when there are real legal questions, and the Justice Department says That's how Google behaves. One really vivid example of this, at least allegedly, is this $12 billion payment. Google paid that Apple to make sure Google would be the predetermined search engine on every single Apple device. Practical effect. A cz you notice every time somebody buys an iPhone or an iPad and they search for something on the Internet. It's a Google search. Some people might consider that good. Why is it a problem in short? Because if you're a search competitors say, being or duck duck, go or you pick one. You don't get any attention. I mean, how often Scott, are you googling things on your phone, right? I mean, we say right, exactly. So their dominance is baked into the verb. So and the Justice Department points this out and Inside Google Becoming the default search engine was a huge priority. The Justice Department says. Google insiders called the prospect of not getting the deal code red. Google CEO Sundar Finch. I met one on one with Apple's Tim Cook to hammer out the terms of the deal behind closed doors and, according to the court papers, and unidentified senior employees from Google wrote to an Apple counterpart. Quote Our vision is to work as if we are one company. And so I called up former Justice Department antitrust lawyer John Newman and asked Is this collusion? Don't say it's somewhere in the middle. It's not classic collusion, so it's not like to oil companies conspiring to raise the price of oil, for instance, it looks more like One monopolists, agreeing with another company to split the monopoly rent. So we have Google, Annapolis or technically, competitors working together to make each other stronger. What did the company say about it? Cos say, there's nothing stranger illegal about it that companies make deals all the time to get the best distribution for their products on DH. Apple just decided that Google simply was the best partner to work with. On Google says Look, people like Google, right. Its dominance and strength is the result of just how great it ISS On DH, former Justice Department lawyer Newman says. Yeah, you could be the best. But that is not an argument to not give others a fair shot. If it is true that Google will win out on a competitive playing field, and it may be Even in a competitive market. A lot of people would like to use Google. But even if that's true, that's not a reason to leave the competitive Plainfield uneven.

Type O blood may make a person less likely to be infected and less likely to develop severe illness, although experts say more research is needed. If blood type does make a difference, and why people were type O blood seemed to be less vulnerable to Kobe 19. A lot more research is needed on this, and doctors are saying that no matter what your blood type is, even if it's type O. You have to be vigilant as they try to stop the spread of this virus.

"The inner forces the more yet usually outer part of. Facets. The show. Okay. Well, thank you and I have always well in Phoenix Arizona of of stepped on Phoenix soil very very briefly in my. Various trips. I was there for. For a couple of days at the most now It's an interesting question. Is it quick demise via Venus We've got three missions going to Mars at the moment I'm assuming none of them going by veinous or. They did it slingshot around Earth to get some speed up and and get out. but yeah I had would this work? It so I don't know the answer directly, but I'm pretty sure that willies right it is very unlikely a that going. To Swing by Venus then get tomorrow. Would get you there faster. It kind of intuitively you can imagine it being possible. But you'd never use it because. With when you going to Tamaz as you and I have spoken about before Andrew Their only certain times when you can make the journey Wennemars and the author in the right relative position, and now he's one of them which is why we've just sent of three spacecraft to Mars. Within the last month or so. If you were having to swing by Venus as well. You've got away. You don't just have to wait until miles is in the right position relative to us. You've gotta wait until both Mars and Venus. In the right position to that could mean you're waiting for years Because just you know you don't have that opportunity every two years so that we we can go directly Tamaz. So. Maybe it's possible, maybe could do it faster, but you wouldn't WanNa do it because of all the delays? I, it's great to hear that we've been playing with a couple space program some my son also called will. Use to play with that a few years ago and I was always really impressed with how that works. It's A. Will says it's an orbital mechanics simulator. You can build your own rocket, but it all works according to the laws of gravity. So it's a great way to learn about space navigation. and. You ve very effective tool. Recommend any techy mind a youngster WHO's interested in space exploration? She has a with the couple space program because it it's the IT works very well. So if not managed and this is our listener will rather than my son will V hasn't managed to recreate. A slingshot. From from mass. Sorry from Venus to get to Mars. It's probably not possible. Really Interesting Question I. You know what? It is counterintuitive to go into the inner solar system to build up speed to get the outer solar system but. Know thinking about it may it might just be possible that you could shave a short amount of time. But as I said, the killer would be having to wait until everything's in the right relative position I think that makes a complete in home start. Wills right and as you and I have discussed with the mission to Mercury going towards the Sun is actually much more complicated process. Than going away from it and that kind of makes me think trying to do a slingshot around Venus ticket to MAS, is Probably not that simple. It's not that sort of things being done. I think..

Much better than we get because that was conditions a better. So that is the measurement. There is another one that's related to that. An tells us a little bit more about the structure of the atmosphere is something that we call our north, an no characteristic size of a of a cell of warmer or cooler air. It's a measurement in it's usually measured. The owner of a mater something like that. On, a site with very good seeing, it might be much more than a meter. For somewhere like siding spring, it's probably less than a meter. is the size of a Blob of air that's going possibly. A warmer or cooler air that's going past the telescope and the reason why that's important is that we now have the ability to correct for that with this technique called adaptive optics. So you can sense actually using lasers usually, but you can sense the the passage of these blobs of air across the the Mirror of the telescope. Usually a all kinds of altitude low altitude tile ttitudes the whole thing. You can you can check that movement is an incorrect for you can essentially take out the distortion in much the same way as noise cancelling headlock headphones. The the extra noise around you as a counseling technique an now really reached a stage of perfection that's taken twenty thirty years to get there but it's enough that it makes it worthwhile building huge ground based telescopes Leah. So we've got the the giant Magellan Telescope coming up twenty three meter effectively we've got the TNT thirty meter telescope coming up we've got the LT the European extremely large telescope, which will have a mirror thirty, nine meters in diameter that will far outstrip the Hubble in terms of the detail it. We'll see because of this adaptive optics technique. So we figured out how to essentially eliminate the deleterious effects of the atmosphere. That's that's. The blurring. There is one effect that you can't get rid of though that is that the atmosphere absorbs wavelengths in particular in the ultraviolet that's been one of the great strengths of the. Telescope S- above the atmosphere, so it's very sensitive to the ultra violets. Region of the spectrum and you can't deal with on the ground. You've got to go into space for that and maybe the moon maybe. Mas. Eight, it's probably cheaper to put something in orbit around the Earth Orono bit around the sun, which was what we've been doing.

Now Fred it is question time and we've got a couple of questions today This first one is from somebody on identified, but we've kind of figured out that our strengths are we going to call him ozzy, and here's his question or goes. My question is out telescopes and the atmosphere. In. has a measurement Bain develop toll how? Good. The images through an atmosphere. Would it be better on another surface side of the moon or planet or not a million of another planet? has measurement Spain done. Anywhere else south of than the US. So. Sort of when they get two miles, all things ought that would be the algae. Mike Betty use telescopes on those. UNITED SPLICES. Scratch I gave up the good work now long time listener. Thanks goes. Thank you will call yours. But thank you for the question and he brings up an interesting point on you and I have discussed before Fred the issues of you know the atmosphere making certain observations difficult from the surface of the planet. but some of that was overcome with the Hubble Space Telescope Band will also be overcome even more by James Webb telescope but what about setting up telescopes on the moon or on Mars or something like that would would there be advantages in that in the future It will happen. Yeah. I mean, there are already. Telescopes on the moon the the Chinese Now which was. The name of it, but it had the U2 one rover forgotten the name of the spacecraft itself. You to one. Was it ten? Anyway, that had an ultra violent telescope on it that was looking at stars from the surface of the moon and making measurements. Very interesting stuff. What interested me about this question though was the first sentence. About whether measurements been discovered soy, a measurement has been developed how good the images through an atmosphere. And had. We. been there for about two hundred years. Three hundred years maybe. Astronomers. Certainly in optical and infrared astronomy, visible light, and infrared of strongly they have A. Parameter which is called the seeing and the seeing is basically a measurement of the diameter. Of A star image, which should be point of light. But when it comes down through the atmosphere is blurred out in fact, it turns into a when you look in. Detail at the image of a staff through the atmosphere it's this kind of. Wobbling football. It's just a constant motion because of the atmosphere itself being movement. is blown up in size so. At Siding Spring Observatory. Which is certainly one of the best sites in Australia. A mountaintop site. Not Very far from where you live Andrea took. Diane it was bitterly cold. It was called up. That's tends to be what happens. Anyway It the seeing is typically one to one and a half seconds. That's that's reasonably good saying. Second is one, three, thousand, six, hundred degree. The size of dime or a dollar coin at five kilometres it's a tiny angle. But it should be less than if there was not much fear, it will be simply point of light. So one and a half one to one and a half seconds is reasonable seeing..

It's analysis of the cracks and fractures which have been recorded by various spacecraft including Galileo Voyager. This is work. that. Has Been Done actually at the lunar and Planetary Institute. So it's effectively come from a re analysis of these old images because we now have such wonderful image processing software that you can actually tease out details. That's one obvious. So the cracks in the surface and they are really quite extraordinary when you see them close up that. They've got real structure to them. semi cracks some. Sort of double ridges but the scientists at the lunar and Planetary Institute of examined them in detail and discovered selling quite dramatic. Which Confirms First of all, what it does is confirms the. The picture we have of Bureau, which is of Iraqi object of lane with a global ocean of water over the top of which is a layer of ICE A. Common structure out there in the solar system that you and I have talked about a lot but. WHAT THAT MEANS Is that the the surface that you see is kinda decoupled from the body itself because the majority of the mass of the of Europa is in the rocky core of it the overlying ocean, the ice over that he's a relatively small proportion of its mass, and so the the surface considered wonder around independent, all of the body itself now we see that..

Itself drilled a hole because they wanted to get home quickly or something like that because they were going stir crazy in the space station. Role questions that were raised. And the has been a development which actually took place late last year. So, apparently, Roscosmos now knows what happened but they're not telling anybody. Really. That's based on comments by. The head of Roscosmos ahead of the Russian space, agency whose name is Dimitri regard sin he was talking the youth. Science. conference. and. He's quoted as saying the whole was in the living quarters of the capsule. It has long since burned up on reentry. We took all the samples we know exactly what happened, but we won't tell you anything. We do need to retain some sort of secrecy. And, apparently, people think that was a tongue in cheek. But Nassar doesn't know what happened. It. So the Russian space, agency clearly is done. Investigation. Found out what it was but nobody knows. All on busting defined at now I think everybody is.

"For Elon. Musk we haven't talked about it for a while but must has more on his plate than his car company. Tesla and his new baby. He's also juggling. The future of Commercial Space Travel and today is a huge milestone this afternoon. His company's space x will launch two NASA astronauts into orbit. It's part of their partnership with NASA. And if it's successful space x will become the first private entity to take humans to the International Space Station and that could propel us into a new era of space travel. So there's a lot riding on this launch here to explain more is I reporter Andy Pastor. Andy thanks so much for being here. Certainly my pleasure all right so first of all. Let's just talk about the elephant in the room. It is kind of weird time to go into space in the middle of pandemic isn't it? It is and I think that Mr Musk and his team in the administration are all hoping that this will be an interesting and they would say triumphant counterpoint. To everything that's happening in the US around the it has created the pandemic has created some difficulties in terms of having people on site the number of people at the launch pad special precautions to keep the astronauts quarantine usually would be but NASA and SPACEX have really focused on making sure that this launch takes place at the time that the planned in the way that they planned. But you're right. It is a very interesting time. And coincidentally even though the president and the vice president will both be their local residents and space geeks. So-called have been told explicitly. Do not come. Don't try to watch the launch too dangerous because of the pandemic just stay home and watch it live streamed or on TV. Let's talk a little bit about the spaceship that these astronauts will be traveling in. This is really complex. Technology right is though when people will see it. It looks very much like the nineteen sixties and nineteen seventy errors capsules that we took to the moon and around the moon but inside. Of course it's much different. Huge automation advances much more sophisticated computers and safeguards to make sure that the astronauts are able to safely eject from a rocket. That's failing to make sure that they can survive. In space against micro remediate when micro meteoroid might strike the capsule so it's a much more advanced capsule but the basic technology is really the same. You put it on top of Iraq you put it into orbit it docks with the space station in this case it comes back and lands under a parachute in in the ocean. You make it sound very simple. But SPACEX has been trying to get this off the ground for some time now and they've had a lot of challenges along the way. Can you talk about those a little bit? And on how they're playing out or where we're at now so that they think they can do this launch successfully absolutely it shouldn't we shouldn't think of it as simple because they have had tremendous challenges. They started down this road six years ago and in that period they've had rocket failures aboard motor failures. They've had parachutes that didn't work correctly. They've had life support systems. That needed tweaking so this has been a really difficult effort much longer than expected. But as SPACEX likes to say it was a fixed price contract. It's a new way of doing business. And even though they're complications with that and it's not quite they did get some additional funds for some future launches but in effect. They've done what they said they would do for less than three three billion dollars. That's incredible we've talked about the importance of this for SPACEX and for mosque. But this isn't just important for SPACEX and musk. It's also important for NASA. This is a totally new kind of way of getting into space for them. Can you talk a little bit about the Public Private? Partnership in relationship that NASA and SPACEX have set up here and what this could mean for that relationship going forward this this opportunity. This arrangement where companies will put up significant amounts of capital upfront and be joined with some investments by NASA to create hardware. That will then in cases actually just provide transportation for NASA either robot for robotic missions or for astronauts as in this case this is a whole new approach it. It wasn't pioneered by the trump administration. It's been building up for many years. They have embraced it wholeheartedly. And tried to push it forward but this is a new way of getting into space and I think NASA will I know NASA has argued repeatedly? The idea here is. Let's try to leverage the private industries expertise and willingness to spend money in exchange for perhaps figuring out ways that they can make money either by mining asteroids mining water or other minerals on the moon by taking tourists into space as you mentioned so this is a whole new era and this is a small step. It's one long is the first. It's a test launch actually of this new arrangement but PORTENDS SIGNIFICANT CHANGES DOWN. The road and musk is not alone. I mean we should mention the fact that you know. Obviously Richard Branson with virgin orbit has been looking into this Jeff bezos with blue origin. So the idea of these partnerships is way beyond. Musk and just to be just to be clear. Yes that's right and they're looking at different kinds of things but also bullying which has been a long standing partner of NASA maybe the longest standing partner and the most closest partner Through the International Space Station and through the Paulo missions and so on they also have a capsule similar to the one that SPACEX has developed. And they also will have test flights and the plan is for them also to be able to ferry astronauts into orbit basically for a set price. So it's not just the start ups that are embracing this new way of doing business. It's also the legacy old old line contractors that see a new way to partner with NASA. What does private industry have to offer? I guess besides the Big Bucks. That government can't proponents of this new way. Would say they have the expertise but they also have the ability to get things done much faster and maybe an a more streamlined way and the hope is that NASA says relatively rigid painstaking way of Doing Business and safeguard insuring safeguards and double checking in their risk averse.

"A now they're looking at different options to ensure that we still have this orbital science laboratory a platform that we can use and one of those is working more and more closely with the commercial sector and getting them to take on elements of the space station management or even just maybe utilizing elements of the space station is already there in order that we can have something there i think the key part of this is that they don't want to end up in the same situation as they did when the space shuttle was retired where they thought that they were going to have something that would allow the us is still said there are nationals up to the space station ah and have ended up relying foty long on the in their minds on the russians and so if there's a way that they can keep something going that they can access i think mattis ytl journalists this among epa birmingham adjusting so you but it's not the first time that we've heard these kinds proposals related to the iss than his in no other artfully a few air commercial companies already working with the space station so there's a company called non iraq's and they've got some kind of payload rex inside the space station so that's it opened up experiments to more people being able to put their signs on the space station and a couple of years ago we had the biggest low beam module which was an expandable habitat module that was put off an inflated on the side of the space station so they're already a few partnerships that are that are going on it's just whether those would be enough to exceed the expanded and keep this the space station alive third did you see those headlines over the weekend is just was going to the weekend gulen and remember what you thought of this larger pro partly privatizing the american portions were involvement with arthur said yes i did i i caught caught the edge of eighth of have not an expert on like kate with them and it dates in occurred to me that you know thinking a hundred two hundred years ahead what happened to me is just entirely pride at and corporate and run in.

"It would actually be very difficult to fake that right all throughout the fleets uncles annoyed anyway suggesting the ending the guys out from the bbc is fake or constraint but nonetheless it can be in the wrong hands it can be fabricated i'd say much more easily than visual media will vr will mix reality or have you steffan any antitrust it it's a paradox and it apples mcgann it also means people can react to it as well immediately it can absolutely but at so i am waits for no man woman or radio listener whatever so let's actually be on the right yeah thank you for getting rexecode life on the right cleveland we need to get ready to go live and i will do some will pulled out after this guy hello i'm gareth mitchell and this is all well technology programme click today in orbits and open for business plans perhaps to privatize the international space station and we have grub like robots in our bodies or minted reality in the operating theatre and a deal i wi said inspired by bays what a combination thank goodness could and buildings in his hair to choose from a variety of a headache i'm very good thank he excellent looking for claes p place ron but first plans to privatise the international space station were that set and often outlined in an internal nasa document that came to light over the weekend the relationship between the private sector and space could scarcely be more topical after leedle musts successful space x for can heavy launched last week about this time last week so let's assess what the us might have in mind for the iss with kate are it's great she's a broadcast journalist and consultant he follows the space industry closely say first of all what all the proposals here as far as we know from nasa well as as we've say many things it's just comes down to money raining and originally the space station is chiefly retired in 2020 had an extension to 2024 and now they contra point is to say bull the government found it again and the answer is not yet said a us government doesn't want funding.

"And unlike i said there are the government agencies that would unlock two maybe take advantage of some crew time on these commercial stations nasa might want to augment their exploration roadmap as i said with grew time on one of these stations they might wanna to test them lifesupport module's other us agencies might do it and other governments the ias as partners that that we work with today might want to fly some some missions up to some of these stations to either train astronauts get some time in space before they go off induce a bigger mission towards deepspace gateway or something else or they might want to do their own research in different ways so these are all potential customers potential businesses but central markets that these companies could start talking to once they have some hard data to go to them with and start doing some research on what the economies look like what they can charge what these people are willing to pay for these services and what services they would demand out of a station you can start to define what your station looks like but the bottom line is if there are things that we are doing on the i assess today like any of this medical research any of this in space manufacturing stuff if there are things that we are doing their that aren't viable once it's in a commercialspace that's okay we don't have to completely transition everything that is happening on the ice us today into a commercial station because maybe it just doesn't warrant its existence maybe it's not useful enough to warrant the investment but when you're dealing with all of this overhead from an iss program when you have extra capacity you do things to fill time to fill space to built to fill payload capacity but maybe those things aren't valuable maybe they're not valuable enough to warrant themselves existing in a commercial space environment and that's okay we have to be okay with that too we have to be okay in finding out what markets are and are not there for these commercial space companies we can't just tire selves down and say once we've started to do something in space we have to make sure that stays in space because that's just not how it works you know that's you're fighting to hold on to something that might not warrant its own existence.

"Then it is worth freeing up the three four billion dollars out of their budget that they devote towards the iss and that's really the trade off that they have to make is that chunk of change worth it to them or can they cover their needs with what they would be pushing onto with that freed up budget but now on the commercial side we start to get into a chicken and egg prague of problem here with the possibility of these commercial stations because right now as as member said in front of senate there's this ambiguity about when the iss would go away so any companies that are thinking about commercial stations notably bigalow and nanno racs themselves with you will a an esa sale who are working on that wet workshop idea companies like axiom space uh these companies that are thinking about commercial stations in lowearth orbit they can't really plan to have a station up if there's 'ambiguities about when the i assess his coming down because the i assess his existence kind of skews the market for what would be needed out of a commercial station you can't really make plans to have a commercial station launched by 2024 and then have all of a sudden the isis be extended the twenty 28 to 2030 even all of a sudden you have four to six years at the front half of your business that just got eaten up by the ice s sticking around longer and the fact that nasr's budget cover so much of the overhead there it makes it a kind of skews the market in a way that maybe doesn't keep you as price competitive so no customers want to fly with your commercial station and that's what member was getting out with his comment that they need that clarity of date to know when they should be prepared to move on to something else.
