"Kind of <SpeakerChange> international <Speech_Male> situation. <Speech_Male> In China <Speech_Male> has been inviting <Speech_Male> lots of their nations <Speech_Male> to participate <Speech_Male> in their <Speech_Male> space station. <Speech_Male> And <Speech_Male> have signed up lots <Speech_Male> of partners. <Speech_Male> But it's not like they <Speech_Male> can detach the <Speech_Male> Russian modules and <Speech_Male> then <Speech_Male> link them up <Speech_Male> with the Chinese space <Speech_Male> station. It's a completely different orbit. <Speech_Male> Correct. <Speech_Male> So <Speech_Male> they would <Speech_Male> just be detaching <Speech_Male> their station <Speech_Male> in either trying to figure out a <Speech_Male> way to keep it going or <Speech_Male> crash it. <Speech_Male> And then they would have to <Speech_Male> launch modules <Speech_Male> that they've been <Speech_Male> building for the ISS. <Speech_Male> There's like <Speech_Male> one science <Speech_Male> module left, I think. <Speech_Male> And <Speech_Male> maybe launch that <Speech_Male> in Doc that with the Chinese <Speech_Male> space station. So they're going <Speech_Male> to have to <Speech_Male> spin up <Speech_Male> essentially <Speech_Male> from scratch <Speech_Male> again. <Speech_Male> And my feeling <Speech_Male> is that they <Speech_Male> can't. That <Speech_Male> their <Speech_Male> capabilities <SpeakerChange> have been going <Speech_Male> downhill year after year <Speech_Female> after year. <Speech_Female> I think they're <Speech_Female> just going to basically <Speech_Female> <SpeakerChange> walk out on <Speech_Female> the ISS in <Silence> 2024, <Speech_Female> <Speech_Female> <Speech_Female> drop the keys out <Speech_Female> the window and say <Speech_Female> good luck, <SpeakerChange> folks. <Speech_Female> <Speech_Female> <Advertisement> And then <Speech_Female> work on <Speech_Female> building new things <Speech_Male> with China. <SpeakerChange> And <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> I think <Speech_Male> my <Speech_Male> feeling is that they can't <Speech_Male> build new things. <Speech_Female> <Speech_Male> At this point, <Speech_Male> they are <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> that they are <Speech_Male> both sort of starved <Speech_Male> for equipment, <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> starved for people, <Speech_Male> starved for <Speech_Male> money. <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> Their capability <Speech_Male> as a space faring <Speech_Male> civilization has <Speech_Male> been on the decline <Speech_Male> for 20 years. <Speech_Male> And that's <Speech_Male> true. And so <Speech_Male> I can't <Speech_Male> imagine <Speech_Male> China is <Speech_Male> way beyond them at this <Speech_Male> point. <Speech_Male> So I can't imagine <Speech_Male> that they'll get <Speech_Male> to a place where <Speech_Male> they'll be able to bring a <Speech_Male> lot useful to the <Speech_Male> table. But <Speech_Male> we will see, I guess, <Speech_Male> we can <Speech_Male> mark this date, <Speech_Male> and <Speech_Male> then see which of these <Speech_Male> timelines <SpeakerChange> <Speech_Female> end up <Speech_Female> correct. <Speech_Female> 2024 <Speech_Female> is <Speech_Female> right around the corner. <Speech_Female> <Speech_Female> <Advertisement> And we will be <Speech_Female> here <SpeakerChange> to report <Speech_Female> <Advertisement> on whatever <Speech_Female> <Advertisement> the heck happens <Speech_Music_Male> <Advertisement> when it <Speech_Music_Male> <Advertisement> happens. <Speech_Female> <Advertisement> Thank you, <SpeakerChange> Pamela. <Speech_Female> And thank <Speech_Female> you Fraser.

"They find a way to do it, then we could have a space station that goes on to 2030. The catch is that Russia has said that they would really like to develop either a national space station or a space station in collaboration with China and they have literally threatened to take their toys and go home by which I mean this attaching their modules from the space station and flying off with them. Right. And the spheres de module is the one that's used to keep the ISS in orbit. All right, before the break we were talking about the threats made by Rogan for the future of the ISS. And he shared on Twitter this just insane video of the cosmonauts celebrating and then disconnecting them their portion of the station and then it just flying free to orbit the earth on its own. Is that realistic? Could they detach and have a functioning space station? It's unclear and the reason it's unclear is the Russian module, some of them are quite old. They're starting to show signs of their age. There have been recent cracks that had to be repaired. Air leaks and removing something from the International Space Station is not the most gentle of processes. So in theory, sure, they could do a whole lot of space walking and a whole lot of turning of wrenches essentially and this attach, but the question is, would what they have be able to survive the stress of the removal, would they be able to launch new solar panels that would be able to provide the kinds of power they need. And that's a whole lot of ifs. Kind of like saying, let's go take this engine out of an antique car and try and build a new car around this ancient engine instead of, well, starting with a new engine and an old shell. And at a time when Russia is experiencing all kinds of embargoes on their high-tech gear, they're going to need to be able to launch rockets. They're going to be able to be able to get parts as you say for solar panels, things like that. We know that oxygen, the carbon dioxide scrubbers are problematic. They've been having problems with their toilets. So, and then that's just the tip of the iceberg. I mean, every single piece of machinery inside that station is undergoing wear and tear. We saw what happened with mirror. In the end of its life, that space station, although it was doing some great science, was being held together with duct tape and baling wire. And they made the final decision that it's time to dunk that station into the ocean. And the age of their portion of the International Space Station is roughly the same age as Mir was when they decided it was time to end its life..

"Between these 5 partners, we have not only built the largest thing to ever be created in lower earth orbit, but have also begun to do some pretty exciting science in recent years and have created a platform for commercial endeavors ranging from the creation of movies to, well, Bigelow testing out one of their inflatable habitats that May 1 day go into a commercial space station. So you've got all of this collaboration and in more recent times we're seeing more of an acknowledgment and an integration of, I guess, commercial elements. Yes. We saw the axiom space, the first four space tourists, axiom space is going to be building their own module to attach to the space station. So what role is this playing in the future of the station? It's going to be interesting. So commercial space is new, but space tourism isn't. It's kind of been around as long as the International Space Station has been around. If you have enough money and you pay it to the Russians, they will happily fly you to outer space. What is new right now is there are commercial space companies here in the United States that are willing to also launch you. NASA was never willing to take that risk. And so as early as 2021, we had hints from Ross cosmos that they were considering departing the International Space Station in 2024 when the current treaty ends. At the same time, other partners, including the Europeans. Well, everyone European space agency Canadian space agency, jaxa, NASA, ESA. They all would like to see the International Space Station continue on until at least 2028 and preferably 2030. To make that happen, we have to find a way to fill the vacuum that hopefully won't be literally made by the departure of Russia from the collaboration. And what makes this interesting is rogue is in the director of Ross cosmos. Made the threat early in the Russian Ukrainian war that they would just drop the International Space Station on the world. And who would save the International Space Station. And Elon Musk was very, very quick to say SpaceX. Yeah. We'll do it. Yeah. And what this points to is a recognition that we don't want to allow a gap in our capacity to have humans in space. That kind of a gap is very hard to re overcome as we experienced in the gap between the space shuttle and. Crew dragon finally being certified. At the same time, you have commercial purpose now being shown for things like the International Space Station with the axiom mission with the movie was getting filmed there with all these well, not necessarily scientific purposes that are getting held..

"Astronomy cast, our weekly facts based journey through the cosmos, where we help you understand not only what we know, but how we know what we know. Our Fraser Cain, I'm the publisher of universe today and I've been a space astronomy journalist for over 20 years with me, as always, is doctor Pamela gay, a senior scientist for the planetary science institute, and the director of cosmic quest. How are you doing? I'm doing well, how are you doing, Fraser? Good. Very good. So how did your tow Hercules experience go? I got to see them. It was complicated by lightning bugs that created sheer chaos because it was sometimes hard to figure out was that a meteor or a lightning bug, but we saw them at peak. We were seeing one to three per 5 minutes, which is pretty good. They were a lot fainter than the land. It's back in 1998, and that made me sad, but I went camping at a dark site, and I have no regrets, and somewhere in southern Illinois is a raccoon that stole an entire bratwurst. And the entire problem. We were clouded in rained out. So no luck. But there's a few sucker holes. We tried, but it also was dark, it gets dark very late here in the summer now. Not until almost 11 o'clock. And so it's like a tiny little gaps in the cloud, but we couldn't really see anything, and we were like, and I wasn't seeing people freaking out on Twitter about it being a full on storm. So we called it. But hopefully the persons will better entertain us. They're sadly too much moon, too much moon. Oh, is it a bad one? I may still go camping. It may still be okay. Speaking of things that you can see in the sky, the International Space Station has been continuously inhabited for over 20 years now, serving as a peaceful collaboration between space faring nations. But it's a machine and it's getting old. In addition, the Russian invasion of Ukraine has made things complicated. What is the future for the ISS? Um. Yeah. Where do we start? Okay, well, so let's just talk about the history a little bit of the history of the International Space Station. How did we get where we are today? The International Space Station is more than just a collaboration between Russia and America. It is also done in collaboration with the Canadian space agency as well as jaxa and of course the European space agency..
SpaceX Resupply Mission to ISS Delayed Until Tomorrow Due to Weather
"A Falcon nine rocket from the space coast. This morning's launch was scrubbed due to poor weather conditions. So SpaceX plans to have another go at it tomorrow morning at 3 14. Now if successful, the Falcon nine will send a cargo dragon spacecraft on a resupply mission to the international Space station. As of right now, tomorrow's launch has 60% favorable weather conditions, which is only a 20% increase from today's chances. Daniel Vargas, Wdbo,

"Because that's the sun's magnetic field provides the solar system. Now so there's the same thing a these great distances talking now some twenty twenty trillion kilometres. Nowhere we're talking. Twenty billion kilometers twenty trillion kilometres outweighs the nearest star yet. Sorry sorry about twenty billion kilometers of of distance from the some two the to avoid Further away it's it's a bit further and so what you've got with the sun's magnetic field where in the helius fear the he'll shaef is the. I'm not clear you know. I'm not an expert on these magnetic fields of colleagues but here what the difference between the helium than poses but he's basically both of them represent the boundary. I think there are differences between them between the sun's magnetic field. I hit the shade is in a sense of a boundary region of magnetism weather. Magnetic field changes quite dramatically on the polls the edge of it. But when you get outside the helium paul's what you feeling is the magnetic field of interstellar space is basically in the back field. The galaxy and so that has a different magnetic signature from the helium helius sphere. Helium shape in the heliopolis which who's magnetic signatures have been recorded by voyager unday particular voyager one exactly as beverley says crossed this boundary some years ago now voyager two is going in a different direction. It's actually going in the southern hemisphere. Remember the only. The tidbinbilla dish cannot communicate with voyager to savoy to as a in an area where i think he is so the helius. Fear is not perfectly symmetric. Scott it's got bumps and dented caused by the fact that he's a dynamic thing is all about magnetism which changes I think there were reports that void to had crossed the helium pause and then have Because maybe the boundary changed or something of that sort. But i think it still is within the disag- field of influence. Going to one is though definitely out of it and just to answer the final. Bit of beverly question. How long will we be getting readings from the spacecraft so what's been happening up that power supplies dwindling That both got these outages radioisotope some electric generators to provide the power. Which is plutonium a hot plutonium. which is very slowly cooling. And what's been happening is mission control. Is i think both of them are still in contact with earth. Pretty sure of that mission controllers have been steadily switching off different instruments just to reduce the load on the outage. Eighty and i think you know magnet magnetism the transmitters Among the last which will which will be turned off. But i think we might still be hearing from them until the mid twenties thirties design. Distended on i. I do remember saying i think it was in a documentary series about the when voyage across that threshold They detected that it happened. Due to some strange radio signal that they received from voyager one Now exactly how that transpired but the the picked up this..

"So these a tiny objects ten kilometers across which are beaming radiation from them magnetic poles if all their side which they flash this stuff through the universe like lighthouse being and we saved them as pulses of radiation. So that's the difference. Quasar very great distances pulsars tend to be narrow galaxy although there are extra galactic ones as well Once a defunct star that that's the pulsars. Neutron star collapsed at the end of his life whereas equator comes from a supermassive black hole as we now know they didn't know that in the sixties but it's a galaxy with a supermassive black hole center which is absolutely voraciously consuming stuff around it. So it's it's in a a an environment that is rich in gas and dust. It's chewing stuff up. Basically beaming out the radiation now. That is one reason why they're extinct today just to come to the end of of the question because we don't say in today's universe in by that we're looking back the billion years or so So looking out into space to a billion light is looking back and billion using time. We don't say. I think this one actually one candidate which might be billion years but older estimable them in fact i think the next nearest one these two and a half billion us light years away so two berlin years ago as we said and so the the thinking is that we don't say these in today's universe because there isn't a raw material around them for the for the black holes to chew up in space out so now the the middle bit of the question is the is the bit that i always find it hard to get around as well as how do a supermassive black holes like wanting equations. How do they make material. Avoid being sucked into the black hole. Unscripted out in the north and south pole of the black hole at relativistic velocities. Nearly this speech. He actually talked last week. But yeah so. It's a good question. Do talk about it quite a bit. Yeah it's all about magnetic fields but first of all the thing to remember is that this stuff does not get within..

Meanwhile back in the real world going along story a with nowkhah because it should have loved fourteen years ago but there were all kinds of slips in shelbyville budget difficulties Technical problems the whole the whole thing. An apparently even after eight law Remember said it took days to get to the space station. i actually. It doesn't take that long to get that there. But then you've got to the catching up with this by station in the orientation and everything apparently only sway out hod propulsion issues Which the baby san required work arounds from controllers in moscow but it did arrive on the on the planet shed. You sounds like sounds like it was built by russian company. Come to that. But you could be right what it does do. It raises The the volume of habitability on the space station by seventy cubic meters. So this is quite a significant. A addition and as i mentioned is an additional restroom there for crews What else was on. Board was an eleven mehta long robotic arm which is called era which i suspect suspected the european robotic arm because it comes from the european space agency and that something that is a device that's built exta l'operation around the russian segment of the space station which obviously got fittings on the outside that this thing will link onto. It's got it's interesting. The structure of it just looks like a lodge pair of compasses if you remember things. Yeah and apparently You know the ends of the two odds grab onto onto fixtures on the on the external part of the russian modules basically grabs one pulls itself along grabs zillow polls itself along so it will song they outside of the of the of the Moving hand over hand is. Abc reported causes a nice way of putting your impressive yet. It's great the one thing that has happened. As as i mentioned it's pushed back a crew test flight that was scheduled. For last of boeing. Boeing style allina. A capsule which is an equivalent of the of the spy sex crew dragon at but that was the earliest that could do i think was probably today or maybe yesterday and i haven't heard whether that launches take place so i suspect it still on hold so the the i wanted to ask you about the style on this. This is essentially gotta be transport vehicle. Yes it's a Able to carry crew so in the same way that The dragon capsule Can carry cargo or crew the different versions. This will be the signing up. Say i don't know that much about it. I think Stalin specifically Just going by. Sorry backtracking there to two thousand eleven. When the the new version of nasa was wheeled out where the commercial sector was going to be essentially a the to to carry out Transport of of astronauts up and down to the to the space station using commercial vehicles rather than nasa sponsored nasa funded.
Russia's New Nauka Module Readied for Launch to International Space Station
"I want to start with the russian multipurpose laboratory module which is i believe called naga for short. But it's it's a it's the new russian module For the irs. They've been working on for years. It's actually ready for launch supposed to launch on july twenty first. This is a big deal. Eight days later it will dock at the airport of these leads. The service module at the iss so the being added to the russian segment of the iss and in fact the cosmonauts are in the process of dumping some old stuff off the i s to make room for it in particular There is a docking port called peers. That there they. They did a seven hour long space walk last month. Who was the second spacewalk to disconnect peers from the space station they disconnect this docking module. Because it will be replaced by the new multipurpose lab module so peers gets disassembled or like disconnected. And it's going to be attached to the progress. Seventy seven cargo ship. And then they're going to deorbit those guys and they burn up in the atmosphere and that's the end and then knock a arrives and then they'll the cosmonauts will need to do another space walk to plug it all in and install everything there but then they will have a new russian science module and the iss will expand even further for the first time in a little while. So that's interesting on its own. I think the russians haven't had a dedicated science modules. So now they're they're gonna have their own dedicated science module. There's also i think a really interesting piece of hardware on this module and that is something called the era e. r. a. stands for european robotic arm. That's pretty good

Go ahead luton's coordi- action. I agree with that yeah. The iss is bigger than you might imagine. It's about the size of a six bedroom house gear. There are two crew borders back here on either side. There's a table here happenings together. We have at this is dr. Morgan is now back on her. After a two hundred and seventy two day.

"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

"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 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 or in orbit around the Sun, which is what we've been doing. But eventually when you know when humans are a woking on Mars. In woking on the move, we probably will have telescopes that to. So. When we do ultimately have telescopes might be on the moon maybe on. Mars. If they do go that way, will it make much difference to APP perspective as we say things from Earth, given the skype and size of the universe will. Be Now miniscule variation. Yes Y- The sitting on Mazdas. The same was sitting on the of his father's the universe is concerned. Because even not even far enough really to see a difference in the positions of the nearby stars. There is one there's been one example those great question drew. About some two months ago new horizons, the new horizon spacecraft observed. A star which was simaltaneously observed from Earth and the the baseline of those two observations because new horizons is now I can't remember how fine seven or eight billion kilometers away. So they got a huge baseline. For for what we feel power measurement, the idea that you're looking from one position and another two to see how a star a nearby star changes relative to his background, and so some of the was both Southern Hemisphere Star under northern hemisphere observed with those observations. Remarkable could see the difference because the spacecraft is so far away from Earth. Interesting very good and Ozzy, thanks for the question. The short answer is yes. We could have just done that despise, but wouldn't have been nearly as interesting but appreciate the question thanks for throwing it up Now, let's move on to our next question from will in Phoenix.

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..

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.

You saying, I don't know why we have to go to the moon and put our flag on. He just wants to go to Mars. So does Buzz Aldrin buzz wants to go to Mars? But you know the media. One of the things that they have ignored here and I don't know if you've heard about this, but here's the deal so in order for us to go to the moon. How, how do you think we're gonna get the money to go to the moon for twenty twenty four? You know, taxes, no funds no defense budgets, no, it's going to be. They're going to raise money by opening up the ISS tourists. It was announced in order to raise money for the next moon mission as we'll open up the international space station for tourism and other business ventures. I get turned the ISS into a luxury space hotel. Right. And in order to turn it into a space hotel, they're going to have to renovate and it'll be ready to go by next year. A single night with food and other crucial supplies. On the ISS would cost thirty five thousand dollars a night at least private missions, where we lived into thirty days, which means the space tourists, we'll have to pay one million dollars for the longest vacation on the station. And that does not include the cost for the launch so you have to pay for lunch to engine. Watch fees is going to cost when the night the candles, and you go, you know how much that's going to cost you hell riding in a helicopter. When you're sick cautious about a thousand dollars a minute. I just magin what's going to cost to fire up that candle to take you that big rockets take you to the ISS. And so the space hotel on the ISS, we'll have to compete with the Aurora space station of Ryan span. I guess there's gonna be another luxury space hotel that's gonna opening twenty twenty one. Space casino. I would like that. Hey, let's go to space casino Hugh, mentioned that gambling in space. You know throwing the dice, they don't you don't throw Dyson space to just wouldn't work. Trove space. They just keep going and going going going found off the wall. They found. No, no Thyssen space. I just say, we kind of fun to have one of those be on credits, probably if you played if you had a space casino credits, because it, I'll go instead of having the coins, falling into the into the bin because they wouldn't be able to phone just float away. Goes your money you lose when you lose. That's how it is. But no, they're going to be opening a space hotel Ryan span. Roar space station. Ryan span space hotel expects to host four while because for twelve days. The floating experience in the privilege sites would cost nine point five million. If a Ryan span he will require a three month training period from the applicants. So all this is to raise money so that we can go to go to the moon again. You believe this? And I was reading the huff PO and they were saying something that you think this is the first time tourists has been opened up the notes. Not. In fact, it was getting Dennis. Tito, who was the was history's first space tourist, he paid twenty million for a night on the ISS or just for a fly on the ISIS and a man from Russia he had to go to MIR core head, right? A Soyuz in and the Russians took the money for the launch. He got onto the space station and he says, he got treated poorly by astronauts. They didn't like him being there. In fact, he said he had to be escorted everywhere. And he couldn't look out the windows at certain times wonder why the hell cat. I look out the windows at certain times, and I remember back in two thousand one we talked about this never say, well, maybe their stuff out there CLYDE that he's not supposed to see. What boy, you oppose, of course, the aliens are out there watching us. You don't want them to see the aliens and one. Yeah, maybe maybe this military stuff out there, not supposed to see like maybe they have like weapons out there. You're not supposed to look at or maybe the black Knight satellites out there. They want you to look, the black Knight satellite. Or maybe there's something else out there that we don't know about have to do with the secret space program. It was funny as I was talking earlier about how I was asked to be on a show a TV show SEI Saigo or Cy science channel about the moon landing lead. No, it wasn't about the mysteries of space that was supposed to reveal that it was supposed to be some moon bases that we're going to, you know, be made by Werner von Braun and others. As I had these documents were released a while ago. And I presented them to this astronaut names Leland Melvin, and he was on the PS. He was he was a shuttle astronaut. And I had it in these.

He was vicious specialists on, f one to two and mission specialists on, on the SDS run to nine and he was also named an associate administrator for education October twenty ten so, you know meeting Melvin was like a big deal demanding this astronaut. Oh my gosh. Back off. He was really cool. Just a cool guy. But then, so, you know, I, I hand him the documents saying, hey, take a look at these documents talking about moon, bases and secret, moon missions and the deep black space program. You know, going deep black. And he's like, you know, looking at over the real reason why we came here to wanna talk about the moon landing. I'm gonna home. I go, okay. So I'm thinking, okay. I'm start asking questions, you know, or ask me questions. I'll answer them all start making questions, and it was, like, you know, I, I enjoyed my time, but it got really weird as we were having a discussion because, you know, he was getting mad at me and I thought, wow, you know, you don't need to get this mad at me because I'm asking questions. And I felt like you know, I was like really stepping on his toes, and he and he said, you know, you're calling my friends liars. You're calling, you know, these, these guys who lost their lives wires. No, I'm not I'm not really doing anything. I mean I said, you know, everybody who ask questions about the moon. Always gets vilified. And, you know, if you if you start you know, saying, well, why did they do this? Well, you know, we went to the moon and don't say anything more about it. We went to the moon. Okay. We went to the moon. I you win. I lose. I mean you know you went to the. Moon, right. You went to the moon. No. Well, then how do you know it's just too many people? Too many people would have to be in on the on the on the conspiracy, and now they don't they don't have to do you know everything that goes on in your company. No. You don't you, do you not know everything goes onto the company where you work. You don't know what your bosses talk about behind closed doors? You don't know what the second tier talks about. You don't know what the third year talks about. You're one of those guys at the end of the pyramid that thinks, you know, everything's going on company and you don't know squat. You don't know anything about what's going on in your company? Same with these guys all the guys are working on the moon moon landing all they knew what they were seeing on the screen, the little screen, the, the ghostly figures, the astronauts jumping around on the moon valley saw. Now, we're supposed to believe that we landed in nineteen sixty-nine with technology that is that of a toaster oven. But I guess I asked if you questions I expressed my doubts. About this event. And I know that the moon landing anniversary's coming up. I mean, I've been noticing two things that had me a little kind of feeling a little weird. Like, for example, watch CNN the Apollo eleven moon landing like you've never seen it before, with new enhanced versions of blood. I'm not gonna enhanced what really are you kidding me? This is like, when George Lucas decided to put another Banta at Maasai flea space port in Star Wars. And we all go. Why did you win Han shot for when when haunts shit didn't shoot? I remember Han shot first. He changed that he agreed shot for or no Han greet. Oh, president said the shot. I'm so confused. I'm just going to calm down now because it was something that really pissed me off. They went and they changed Star Wars. So now watch Apollo eleven on CNN. You'll see new enhanced versions of things you've never seen before. I'm thinking. Yeah. Okay. It's too boring to see black and white moon shots, they have to go and color them up, and, and they have to go in, and make them clearer and see, that's the thing is that once you start asking questions about the moon landing. And once you start saying, but that's not how shut up. That's how it was. So in you mealy get, you know, castigated over the fact that you're saying something about the moon and whether or not it happened, sixty nine I'm just concerned that, you know, just asking simple questions gets people angry, but you can question everything for whether or not the earth is flat to the grassy knoll, but one thing that creates the most hate-filled rance is questioning the moon landing. So what am I favor moments in the TV series? I'm on with this. This guy is called truth about the moon landing says on S SEI say to him, do you believe everything history tells you? And he looks at me kind of, like what does the moon landing did not happen the way history said it did. Yes, it did my friend said, no, it didn't. It did not happen the way I just kept saying over and over again. And I remember when the producers shot that moment I made Leland so angry. I mean that was not my intent but merely wanted to check out the history of NASA. That never gets reported. I for example, I don't have time to play this, but I'm gonna play this. I did investigation into NASA was trying to do some tests, and they wanted to do something called in situ resource utilization. The process of living off the land, when Nassar turns the moon, and when they said, well, we gotta test the machinery to make sure that, you know, the regular won't ruin the machinery, we gotta test, whether or not, these Austronautics are gonna be able to breathe in the regular. They've already read it. And I talked to Chuck stern, and he said that he ate it. Well, here's what this is from dancer. Now, pardoned the guy is great radio voice, but here's from NASA. Every port on what they're doing to try and simulate Moon-dust. True. Fakes scientists makes simulated lunar soil presented by.
"iss" Discussed on SPACE NEWS POD
"Get into some SpaceX and space station news. This mission was a couple days late. It was scheduled to take place on Wednesday. And then it slipped to Friday to give NASA some time to resolve some electrical issues that are on the international space station in the issue was a main bus. Switching unit. The m b s you which is a component of the ISS United States orbital segment electrical power system, and they got that all fixed up. So next thing that they was launched. This SpaceX falcon nine rocket with the capsule on top of it to take supplies to the international space station in in that capsule. The pressurize section had three thousand three hundred forty four pounds of equipment and supplies in further on in the unpressurised capsule. There's two thousand one hundred and twenty eight pounds so altogether. There's five thousand four hundred seventy two pounds that were launched on top of this rocket incentives to the international space station. The pressurized section of cargo head one thousand six hundred one pounds of scientific equipment and experiments, and that's researched that C R S seventeen will deliver to the station includes tissue chips in space. It sounds like potato chips, which would be delicious for astronauts and space, but it's actually not it's an investigation that will use three dimensional cultures of human tissue to study, how cells respond to factors such as drugs or diseases in microgravity, you definitely don't want to eat that and another experiments on board, which is called the photo bio reactor, it's a study that uses biological processes as part of the life support system of future long duration space missions. And that experiment will, cultivate, microscopic algae Clara vulgarities aboard the space station's destiny laboratory, the LG consumed carbon dioxide and give off oxygen while also producing nutritional biomass that can be consumed by astronauts, so think about this. If we could make food in space from these algae's a week do long-term spaceflights with just the food. That's in there. It could continue. To produce food for as long as it's on the space station for or for as long as it's on the long-term space vessel. And these are the building blocks is the first phases of these kind of experiments, so we're gonna know in the future, you know, in the next couple years, or so how this actually turns out, and if these algae's will actually be ready for human consumption for long-term
