"Using stroke for might be really distracting. And I definitely want any this explain left's coexist exactly so you just have to pick your times. There's one shot of yours where it's a door of some size and several scientists are positioned in a way. That looks like I've taught my cleaning it But it could have been many other more important aspects of their work. Can you describe that shot a little bit and How you position those those folks and and how you know how much of a collaborative effort that was or or how much how long it took? It wasn't collaborative at all of Yemen. Chat some those doors were really heavy. That's the shipping container for James Webb and the engineers and technicians. There are actually trying to get those doors latched and So I turned around I did have a wet in my hand and I was like how this shot it and it actually stayed in a raw format for a while before I get back to it in realize realized what I had and went ahead and and color corrected and that sort of thing so there's no additional light in particular image. It's one of my favorites. It happens all your all the photo muscles. I mean your documentary. Almost you got your news style moment there as well as setting up a much more involved shots and documentary do use macro lenses. When you're working on you know documenting pieces and parts and things like that? Do we wind up using and my last question is You know you mentioned in one on one of the articles. I read that you you know. There's some influence of science fiction films in your work and I was hoping you could mention. Maybe maybe some of the specific science fiction films you liked and watched and and how that you know few feeds into your work so I mean from a from. I don't know as long as I can remember independent science fiction. I'm I'm star Trek. You know the whole Captain Kirk. Spock used a mesmerizing rising. What I've come off from school to watch those episodes when I should have been done homework? You sound this way. Orange Teijin the right thing. I mean lately the aesthetics of I guess some of my favorite favorite movies I mean think. Let me think for second I like the latest blade runner I think he's amazing For meekness When I talk friends eight they really really like the movie but I love the of of Prometheus so I I I watch films multiple times with the sound down because I just want to look at the aesthetics of it see how it was lit the thing so I think I've seen blade runner? Maybe I WANNA say twenty twenty five times originally the sound on down. Yeah original but I've also done the latest one with the sound down. Quite ad Astra was really good. This is a sign up to keep the ask again High Tech Aesthetic for amazing. There's a remastered version of the original blade runner that POPs ops up in theaters every once in a while. It's like eight K. resolution. It's amazing. Get get a chance to raise odyssey. The screen excluding seventy millimeter at the Ziegfield theatre and surround. Sound good. Feel Oh yeah I mean I I I see that movie in your shots for sure absolutely anyway. If people want to see more of your work where can they go. INSTAGRAM websites Where can they find you work?

Thanks for having me so great having you know we we. We have more questions today than we've had for many I guess for people interested in this paper literally Let's just start off. You say that your refer to yourself as a technician rather in an artist. You want to elaborate on that a little bit. I initially started preferring to myself as a technician kind of as a A backlash to a colleague who referred to me as an artist. Kind of like no you don't you don't really fit in. Your work is to Artistic Dick for this environment and you know I kind of took a step back and said okay so I I see what he's saying and maybe to flourish in in this technical environment I have to sort of reinvent myself and let people know the technical power of photography and how it fits search technical environment. Do you think that being engineers they look at what photography's do in a way as folly. That's confidence it's sort of like we're doing serious. He stuff and you're kind of like playing around here and just on on on the sideline that's what it sounds like. Am I wrong. Well so I I would not say it that way because because because a lot of being engineers engineers are actually tigers and and I think they really appreciate If you understand the technology behind photography will right so if you come in as an artist they might not look at you the same way as if you talk their language is how do you know what you're talking about. So so if you're talking to a technologist allergists or an engineer. That is photographer. He let him know that you know your stuff and there's a there's A. There's a degree of respect. It's I candidate sort of you sort of you know so The Art of photography comes out after they see an image that you make sure you go. How'd you do you? You do have to kind of re prove yourself there but let me ask you You know with this attitude and an error the kind of the need to take on that attitude of that that kind of label or whatever you WANNA call it person. Listen Persona did did it bring a change in your work or did you already kind of go into it. Knowing that kind of style you wanted to present I I know. I don't think it changed my work. At all. To be honest you know I think that the constantly evolving Qatada for at least I have When I first came the NASA I mean before I started shooting actual hardware I was doing more public affairs styles. A lot of head shot at Salon Group photos. A lot of you know like awards Jerem grip and grin gripping grand xactly so so occasionally either they would be a call for A really cool image of a spacecraft. And I'd go and go into a clean room for fifteen minutes and get my shot leave and I was one of the only photographers that was shooting digitally at that time right so I could get my studying format format at that point. No wasn't actually was. I mean we're talking twenty years ago so we're talking about Kodak for sixty all right so so they add Kodak Doc. We're sixty that the battery had been depleted. And you could get. I don't know fifteen shots before the battery died but it was perfect because I was used to the shooting medium format tiger so like shooting a roll of one. Twenty shot right and So anyway I get my shots and Dan I'm Mike Light it and so I always took the extra step and people started to notice that. And that's how I got on the side On the more more technical side of goddess. Okay so maybe we should step back a second. Because you know you've got twenty years like you said and You know the the whole thing has been an evolution and obviously now. You're kind of you know fully ensconced in with the with the James Webb program but one of the things about how did you find out about this because obviously sleep. This was not on craigslist. Well I mean it wasn't on craigslist but I think it was in the paper uh-huh why did your eyes pop open when you saw this because this I mean this is really unique job so the eyes pop and then and with I can I can do this. I'm like everything that they listed there is like I mean I. It's Awesome I. Of course I took my work and I didn't have obviously the material that a or I didn't have the types of things in my portfolio illegal share craft exactly but what they could see the quality of the bright and like I said when I when I first came on it was more editorial obeys day and You know a lot of headshots and that kind of thing. They sold that in my work. This all to magazine work all the hip hop artists shot united. So they okay Baseball equality though. I think that was that was obvious. And where did the job. Why don't you have that stuff on your website? Is it something that Over the time. You're you're kind of now you want identify yourself as as this photographer or you know carry work. Yeah Yeah Yeah. I'll projects having I have. I really decided that I love sheeting technology. UH-HUH I love shooting space is is you know I've been doing it for the longest period of time And this the position the job where I am has really allowed me to explore This area so yeah. It's just something I really loved. Okay and and to say that I wasn't connected to the to the previous work would not be totally honest but it wouldn't wouldn't be alive either. You know I often found myself shooting things that are not really into this. Got Together gotTa make these images. But now I'm really really connected and can you maybe explain a little bit How would you describe yourself as contract photographer? And how how that works. But you've obviously been. There are a long time and you've evolved into very specific role so maybe talk about that a little bit and also general responsibilities as like on a day-to-day basis this or a project basis courts courts so fifty years ago Of course NASA photographers were government employees. So they actually work for NASA and I think there were probably dozens of photographers or a few that are pretty famous for their Apollo Images Kinda nameless with famous famous nonetheless But there is probably only one government NASA photographer right now. The rest of US did shoot for NASA are contract photographers. So we work for outs. I companies that have contract with NASA for service. Okay let's other words Gotcha interesting and and then like another. Follow up with the move to describe kind of go into the office every day. I mean do you go. I mean now you're in California but do you is it kind of day-to-day thing where you always going to be on site or or how's that work. It's a day to day thing. Yeah so And that's why I'm here in California because because the the spacecraft is actually here now So I'm always on call for photography and spend a lot of my day in the cleanroom in room making photographs of the activities. That are going on When I'm at Goddard I'm also working on a few other projects oftentimes they call me in for you know what they might call the beauty shots or they they they really cold. Such shots might go out to the public. And that's what You know that's where I really liked China's we're really like the you know works I mean we'll. We'll go ahead Chris. You just referred to the James Webb Space Telescope as a spacecraft which it is Right folks called a space telescope in the Atlantic article you refer to it as an observatory. And that's the first time I've seen anyone. I use that term so that is the technical term for so okay. So let's let's break hang on a few terms hear the the James Webb Space Telescope has a components right so there is the obstacle portion. An there is the spacecraft in the space craft includes Basically the little booster rockets the station keeping rockets. It's SORTA keeping position in that sort of thing and also includes the Sun Shield right whereas the optical portion as is the proportion that everybody knows knows with the mirrors the six and a half meter mirror that that is James. Webb's basic You know the image that everybody is so has a couple of portions when you put it all together. It's an observatory. You know. Just like the Griffith Observatory Koch.

I'll projects having I have. I really decided that I love sheeting technology. UH-HUH I love shooting space is is you know I've been doing it for the longest period of time And this the position the job where I am has really allowed me to explore This area so yeah. It's just something I really loved. Okay and and to say that I wasn't connected to the to the previous work would not be totally honest but it wouldn't wouldn't be alive either. You know I often found myself shooting things that are not really into this. Got Together gotTa make these images. But now I'm really really connected and can you maybe explain a little bit How would you describe yourself as contract photographer? And how how that works. But you've obviously been. There are a long time and you've evolved into very specific role so maybe talk about that a little bit and also general responsibilities as like on a day-to-day basis this or a project basis courts courts so fifty years ago Of course NASA photographers were government employees. So they actually work for NASA and I think there were probably dozens of photographers or a few that are pretty famous for their Apollo Images Kinda nameless with famous famous nonetheless But there is probably only one government NASA photographer right now. The rest of US did shoot for NASA are contract photographers. So we work for outs. I companies that have contract with NASA for service. Okay let's other words Gotcha interesting and and then like another. Follow up with the move to describe kind of go into the office every day. I mean do you go. I mean now you're in California but do you is it kind of day-to-day thing where you always going to be on site or or how's that work. It's a day to day thing. Yeah so And that's why I'm here in California because because the the spacecraft is actually here now So I'm always on call for photography and spend a lot of my day in the cleanroom in room making photographs of the activities. That are going on When I'm at Goddard I'm also working on a few other projects oftentimes they call me in for you know what they might call the beauty shots or they they they really cold. Such shots might go out to the public. And that's what You know that's where I really liked China's we're really like the you know works I mean we'll. We'll go ahead Chris. You just referred to the James Webb Space Telescope as a spacecraft which it is Right folks called a space telescope in the Atlantic article you refer to it as an observatory. And that's the first time I've seen anyone. I use that term so that is the technical term for so okay. So let's let's break hang on a few terms hear the the James Webb Space Telescope has a components right so there is the obstacle portion. An there is the spacecraft in the space craft includes Basically the little booster rockets the station keeping rockets. It's SORTA keeping position in that sort of thing and also includes the Sun Shield right whereas the optical portion as is the proportion that everybody knows knows with the mirrors the six and a half meter mirror that that is James. Webb's basic You know the image that everybody is so has a couple of portions when you put it all together. It's an observatory. You know. Just like the Griffith Observatory Koch.

You beat the shit out of you should be knee off the middle shoot the focus. But she's piece nerve gas. Why would she change it tinker? She's in there to finish the fight. She's perfectly while get a grip crazy.

It's interesting to see you. Don't watch him when he's calling by Kofi keeps that momentum anthem and yes so brave. Cf Am went down. Oh yeah Wednesday. Thursday Thursday Thursday. Is they cut a bit of it. And I saw Ryan's fight. I'M NOT GONNA lie. I didn't watch the rest of my turn on tune in for Ryan does a toy at the top. I obviously Jose Sharks Tar has meant defenders withdrew on the week. Avoid you said it was affecting the mentally so credit the freemen showing up there Aaron considering taking the fight and as more as a kind of am one Retained the heavy Believe would a first round knockout and condemn sorry saw heaters are Saw Phillips matches very win checked leg kick that his win and we've seen this so many audio C. enforcing for Hossein Makki opponent leg break off of the check and that is unfortunate. But that's the way it goes on Amir. Al Bazi defeats Roy. Court is would have forced round key. Look that's fire from the debut that rowing would've wanted incredibly tough task straightaway in his debut for the promotion. And I know hindsight's wonderful hanging but it wasn't the right fight going to take from Roy not so much. Now you know a a mirror you're at an odyssey a lotta hype dare from London. She'd fighters and I'm sure maybe it's lower bales would have been would have been better but listen it's all it's all well and good talking about new yet. I mean I'm sure Roy was logo be Albuquerque that's Tarez Abi Tyrez and the US. ETA didn't go his way this time.

I've inherited a post comments and to be honest this is this is probably a good waiting for Barron local. Because you know they're already going back to the well as far as I'm concerned making the second fight between lab often early on in his in his bare knuckle tenure after beating pollen is used debuted against so it shows after I think in the in the promotion lack of imagination they should have been showing the global fight. Someone bigger again Eh. That that should have been the way it goes but obviously the last air it sets up a trilogy. I'm sure they'll do it because this macho has probably been the biggest one for them including the financial blocking the Goya's behind the minorities the wealthy do but as you said there may not fighting the weightings ratings Sorta gone and you know you see a lot of guys go in there for one or two fights got their books go a yachting back Rawlings. was there for awhile.

I have no problem with saying. Do you see that. They signed the Iranian Hogan. Yeah that's enough stuff to even just more laughable holy saw out there that leads involved now he's totally blown blown-up sheep. Let's let's just move on Mont because as I tell you it gets on my skiing off. It's all right it's getting for it. Okay I'm getting pulled over the marches alkaloids with the letter. It's just a word on the oil mobster. Congratulations to everyone. Who competed am if we could just make one request here? If you'd please put out a metal chart like this is what amateur your sport is about. It's just about sport so tell us you got the most metals do that very prominently every year. It comes out of bed hours after the event on your like. We need this on the Sunday. We needed the night finishes you need to get a medal chart out there. And that's what the Olympics is based on the metal chart is shown before every single event. Because that's what people people are keeping an eye on. You GotTa do it. If you're doing an event like this fun tastic again. It seems to be going from strength to strength and Andy Royne POTTY ULA and Dino Dino eighteen away the commission himself yet and you were six metal posted it was Seattle's six medals We picked up one senior on one. Gene Lebron's lots and then three silver bronze with girls So while don't everyone involved. I loved I agree with you. I think a metal chart should be you know especially when you're a mainstay. Tro Dang so like if they have metal chart right there under update. Let's say every day and then at the end of the day people will be compelled to watch it or they're like Oh shit earned the AU pair you know of course but he put evenings and e the even from a sense of you know Coverage for the sport you know I remember. We had it on here last year on on the bulletins across across across the country. We the bulletins on Yeah He. It was the one trying to pull the fact and medals for lots of Amigo on. It's an absolute nightmare to try and find many medals where from between the juniors and seniors and things like that's all I think we'll be a great idea. I think benefits everyone if they're down dot. It's a very very simple. Hang on. I think that should be already. Don't yeah I think they do need to make it more easier to takover for me. I didn't get something. They need to work on the every year. We get all aware. Aren't you covering this. Well it's not easy to cover it takes logistically. It's like three three days work and as well as that. You can't keep trucking medals and we don't know the value that's put on each metals in terms of a table of course law. Damn it seems to be gone from strength to strength. This is still a very commuting. So I feel like it's a it's doing great and look at Mohammed Mckay F- again unbeaten and the minds of savage Wjr am pro for Muhammad. I think it is. Yeah I'd say. Definitely twenty twenty and and to be honest. I'd say he's the first ever Owen Alfred later. I'M GONNA have to watch in two thousand twenty because I mean he absolutely deserves that right. WHO's Madam in every? Final is an unbelievable uh-huh yeah it's amazing to see what he's done. You know I remember you know. We've we've been watching them for quite some time. You know fights and all use a couple years ago the guy you know I think Iranian stevie and Sean Bats The put us onto am very very early in his career is just like an obsolete savage Khabib Veep Party from Europe. Yeah I feel like Given his links with Oma and Bahrain and stuff like that maybe braves and obvious choice there but I would. I am told them to make sure Hanley than I saw too many times coming out of the way my with Franz Malambo he combs at him off with the gold medal medlen trauma into full pro. You know what I mean like like trump against established names like I think I think France has forced boycott-like Tree Toil Shit like oh Christ great. It's absolutely crazy to nurture townsley tank mistakes lowland stakes. I'd love to see him. Go Cage Warriors. Okay I think Graham and that is their own limited a bit better. Yeah I mean even even ballatore like now how to orcher talents. Better than brave are pretty good at notre talent. It's just that the time they choose to Up The ante sometimes is questionable. Extreme dynamic nommik change like we saw from from James Courtney teeth that going in against Bundy as a champion or organization You know even Albertson being put against Phil Davis debut state. It's just weird. They they seem to have no inbetween. We've talked about a hundred times as go go. Read Sodas no point in going down that road again and yes so. That's everything we have for this week and next week is going to be a big big big week. I am a bell to our London and cage. Warriors won eleven going down in the English capital. AMMO I'm going to be there for a boat so that's why we've had MVP VP on forest on now we'll go to our cage. Warriors Middleweight. Champion Mr James Webb who will look to continue with the momentum that's been built by team. Kf Tom King Chris Feels Dell's and Gary et CETERA. Over the last month or so seems to be a great time for Jamie how to say no one hundred percents and it's it's gone from strength to strength and means obviously being very very impressive few cage warriors fight so far James Grady Grind Tough duties come over to the stores and lock as where he's a world title so it is. I think we saw a few other names. That have Thomas Dropping last week. So yeah I'm just I'm I'm super excited to see what happens with that team K F. It's it seems to be growing and growing now. There's a lot of momentum behind the jam at the moment and I think that's that's momentum. We always talk about massive amounts of word mixed martial arts and a master to have that momentum so strength strand for the lodge looking forward to seeing what happens on the Irish team especially here in the next year definitely yes yes of. Of course you remember the last time James appeared on the show. A lot of people very worried about him. He was very downtrodden. After that an controversial draw he had suffered as a shoulder injury dude due to being tombstone basically just just interested in what he was thinking about. You know I it was kind of He. He he added effect him so badly that he was thinking about retiring afterwards. Which is insane? When you think he's right there the door at big contract once you have the the cage? Warriors toilets well let's always perceived on 'em also that you know despite everything that happened despite you know a lot of people believe in that notorious coin of you you know demo legal kind of slams used where we're very bad form etc and James feels northern personal going into this for you know so Really interesting listen. Hear him talk. And we'll be back in about twenty minutes to relay what's going on with the week ahead when we return my friends. I'm here with James Webb at middleweight. Champion.

This is this is is really good news. I've been on the the doubter side of whether the james webb telescope is ever going to end up out there but according to news out this week yes. Yes indeed we've built it. The next step will be launching it but once it gets out there these <hes> these researchers also modeled the trappist one system.

It's not so bright that it outweighs that dimming from the transit transits of the planets that are going around it and so the it's a great system system to model and so they modeled that system in this particular study and showed what they should be looking for on the various planets that are orbiting around the trappist one red dwarf star and how we should be looking for it so modelled it in the near infrared and also <hes> medium <hes> infrared wavelengths to determine how we can look at the planets to figure out whether they have oxygen hydrogen in <hes> nitrogen what is in the atmosphere so

NASA Shuts Down Spitzer Space Telescope After 16 Years

"Spitzer space telescope, according to NASA will be decommissioned on January thirtieth of twenty twenty now that is due to the space telescope aging. And this is due to decreased functionality you see Spitzer. It has to rotate two point it's antenna towards the earth to transmit data back to us. And when it does this, it causes its solar panels to turn away from the sun in during. That time the space craft relies on internal solar power in a battery to operate. So every year, that Spitzer has been out there, it's there's solar panels have been tilting further and further away from the sun in scientists at NASA worried that continuing to operate Spitzer would deplete his energy source completely. And if this happens like in the middle of it experiment, they might not be able to retrieve the data that's already on Spitzer, so they need to basically save energy in order to shoot that data back to earth in Spitzer is amazing. Right. So Spitzer was only supposed to last five years in it. Lasted in additional eleven years, in during that time Spitzer gave us some of the most stunning images of Saturn's rings clusters of stars and. A small black hole from a nearby dwarf galaxy amongst a lot of other images. You can check them all out on NASA. It's all free to download free to check out. You can go to NASA dot gov in search for Spitzer or all the Spitzer news and all the everything that's happened with Spitzer throughout its time throughout at sixteen years exoplanets, galaxies everything Nobili stars solar systems. It's all there. Now Spitzer gave us some amazing data some amazing science, but it's going to be replaced by the James Webb space telescope, which is going to launch in twenty twenty one in the James Webb space telescope that J W. It's different than the Spitzer space telescope. It's going to be an L to a second Legrand's point. And it will orbit the sun, one point five million kilometers.

"This week. Nasa announced it will create the fear x telescope. It'll look at how our universe has changed, and how common the ingredients of life actually are in the Milky Way. It will collect data on more than three hundred million galaxies in one hundred million Milky Way based stars using optical and near infrared light sphere x will search for water and organic molecules in stellar nurseries. These are areas where stars are born every six months or so the telescope is going to take a step back and look at the entire sky, creating a kind of detailed sky map that will be used to identify targets for future missions like the James Webb space telescope. It will deliver an unprecedented galactic map containing fingerprints. From the first moments in the. A universe's history. And we'll have new clues to one of the greatest mysteries in science. What made the universe expand? So quickly less than a nanosecond after the big bang. The telescope is projected to launch sometime in twenty twenty three.

"Has been pulled from a mission? What is it? Oh, yeah. This is very rarely in the history of space. This is only the sixth time it has ever happened in the most famous example, of course, is is Dc Slayton in the original years of NASA. The first seven astronauts, so it's rare thing to happen. It does happen once in a while. And it's a reasonable thing to happen. You know, you want to make sure the guys on the couch a healthy Olympic fly. This next story. I have a mixed reaction to congress now in the hands of the money. The purse strings are in the house of representatives. And that is democratic majority are threatening the wet James Webb telescope. So my reaction Bob is what took them so long. And does this mean. James Webb will not fly. No. It means. None of those things. The the democratic house has put out a one of its budget poll bills, none of which have passed because of the shutdown and the lack of money Trump's wall. But in them they're full budget for the James Webb telescoping twenty nine team. The report the budget. They put together. Says that they are really annoyed and disappointed about the mismanagement compl- quoting here madness management complete lack of capital oversight and overall poor basic workmanship on wet, and they basically say that if they don't stay on budget as planned they might cancel the mission the congress. Well, I don't believe him. This is just a bladder from congress that they're not serious. Congress makes these kinds of threats and has for decades everybody in the swamp in Washington knows that this is a typical by in situation. You you get the budget approved at a low amount. And then once it started, congress is compelled to keep giving money. Even though it goes over budget web is the is the poster child of the worst form of a buy in because it was originally budgeted a billion. It's now close to nine. Billion? It was originally supposed to launch in twenty eleven won't launch till twenty nine teen at the earliest, it's pretty much a disgrace. I don't take the Democrats seriously, and this web should have been caught a decade ago that eight billion they have spent trying to keep this thing going has wiped out the entire astrophysics budgeted NASA and prevented any other telescopes being launched, and that's actually a tragedy. We're now a decade more than a decade since any real serious telescopes have been washed away, many others because there's no money to pay for wet. And it's it's just a tragedy. And nothing's really changed. The next big telescope W. I is also a big boondoggle it's already over but in the design phase and behind schedule. And so it's just I don't take congress ceremony keeps the website behind the black. When we come back, the long term and short term effects of SpaceX is.

The made an emergency descent back to earth and happy to report both are doing well both landing safely. Rachel feldman. Science editor at popular science is here to bring us up to date on the launch and other selected short subjects in science. Welcome back. Rachel, thanks for having me IRA anything more about what went wrong there. So we know that about two minutes into the launch. There was some kind of booster failure. And they had to undergo what's known. As a ballistic landing ballistics descent, which is so called because usually they make kind of a shallow angle as they come down to create a little bit of lift and take away some of the the the force on on the astronauts during landing, and this is where the rocket is really coming down more like projectile, and this has happened before. But only ever during landings, which of course, appears a lot less dramatic because they were supposed to come back down to the ground in the first place. So this is the first time they've ever had to make such an aborted landing during a launch and the Russian space agency that immediately they would begin investigating so far that that's all we know. While the good news about it. Is that it worked right, right? Right. And again, this is a rare. But the kind of thing that astronauts trained for all the time. So not something that happens a lot. But certainly one of the procedures that they are expected to occasionally encounter. So, you know, not something we want to have happen. But something that is certainly on the roster of things they have learned how to handle well with the Soyuz capsules being the only way for humans to reach the international space station, isn't this now a little bit of a problem. There's no other way to get up there. Right. So there are I believe three so us missions planned that are now kind of up in the air because the Russian species agency again is undertaking this investigation, and so it's possible. Some of those will be put on hold and even if they're not, you know, those two crew members who were counted on who are now on the ground instead of on ISS mean that there's there's probably going to be a gap in staffing. You know, we have. Three people on the space station right now. But they're scheduled to come back in December. Now, they could extend their stay a bit. But the so yes capsule they have up there. That's going to bring them home. I believe it's only it can only stay up there through sometime in January. So that's the longest they'll be able to stay before coming back down. And that means that the species and probably will be uncrowded for some amount of time. Which is something that we know should be possible. There are procedures in place for it. But I don't believe it's ever happened before. Interesting. I'd love to check on whether their experiments up there that method. Yeah. You put on hold or whatever, certainly, you know, every astronaut who goes up has a fully packed schedule of scientific experiments so NASA and the essay and the Russian space agency are certainly going to have to at least a rework schedules. And I know there are a few spacewalks. That are now up in the air so to speak so to speak. And other bad space news, the Hubble has problem this week to right, right? But again, not a totally pessimistic. Message from NASA on that. So the Hubble is twenty eight years old and has done fantastic work. And hopefully still has a lot of years left in it. But it certainly is not a new telescope and the gyroscopes that we use to keep it in position while it looks out and takes all these amazing images of space for us. One of them is malfunctioning it's been glitch in for about a year and the backup that was expected to replace it didn't quite act the way NASA wanted it to. So the telescope basically went to sleep on the fifth of October, which is just to say it's not a collecting new images right now. While NASA tries to workshop the problem. They are optimistic that it's they're going to figure it out. They're going to either get the gyroscope working or figure out a work around. For a way to position it. In. The meantime, they expect it to continue working into the twenty twenties and overlap with its replacement the James Webb space telescope, but what's interesting is that the the big problem is that it was designed to be fixed during shuttle missions, and we don't have a shuttle program anymore. So we're kind of running out of ways to fix the Hubble. So it does have an expiration date now. The detail. Let's move on. Some other news is really interesting, advance and reproductive medicine. If if you're a mouse. Yes. Great great news for mice. The Chinese Academy of science put out a paper showing that they were able to use embryonic stem cells, and gene editing to create mice from same sex parents which has been done before. But they used a slightly different method these this time and while the mice with two dads only lived about forty eight hours, the mice with two moms lived to adulthood and had babies of their own. So it's just kind of like another small step forward in this growing body of work. That's teaching us how mammalian reproduction works and how we might be able to alter it. That is a question about why it worked with the mice with two moms and not the two dads. Yeah. You know, I it's just considered more difficult to do it with two meal, sells it comes down to you. They're they're not quite parallel. I hear it referred to a lot. It's like zipping up the chromosomes, and there are certain genes that while both parents have them they're turned off in males and turned on females and vice versa. And so it's about you know, tweaking sex chromosomes so that they dip together properly. Finally, there's a study tip for students, especially kind of memory tell us about that. Yeah. So this really cool. Font called San's, forget it guy. And it's actually designed to be slightly more difficult to read than than most. It's like kind of tilted and broke in. And it's all about this principle called desirable difficulty, which is a phenomenon in learning where you need something to be difficult enough that it holds your interest. You know, that it doesn't bore the person trying to learn the information, but not so hard that it keeps them from retaining it. So the idea behind this font is that it kind of breaks these traditional design principles. So that it gets your attention and me helps you retain information a little bit better. So there's no published paper on it. Yeah. So he can't quite say how well it works. But it is a really intriguing idea. Always interesting. Have you Rachel? Science editor at popular science. And now it's time to check in on the state of science. This is WWE St Louis. Radio news local science stories of national significance. California's Channel Islands a cluster of aid islands off of the southern California. Coast have been compared to the Galapagos isolated islands with unique ecosystems home to some species found nowhere else and five in the Allens became a national park in the nineteen eighties before that they were home to ranching and farming and home to the shoe much people for thousands of years before that, but a cascade ecological problems threatened, the island's Lance Roscoe, news director here at KCRW is with me now to talk about efforts to protect and preserve the ecology there. And we're good to be with your IRA. So tell us about the logical problems a little bit of a history. This nothing new right? No. It's it's really interesting. It's sort of like CSI for biologists. We had this whole chain reaction of things. But as you mentioned, we had the ranchers moved in and they brought in cattle, sheep, and pigs and other non-nato. Things to the islands. But what happened was after World War Two DDT ended up in the ocean? The DD ended up in fish. Now. The reason this is significant is the bald eagles which are native to the islands. Eat these fish and built up to the point in the bald eagles that whenever they would nest the eggs would crack so they would basically limit sit in the exit would crack and the bald eagles came to the point of extinction. So they brought in the bald eagles for a captive breeding program. So that opens another door golden eagles, which don't live in the islands naturally said. Hey, this looks like a great place to live because our nemesis is gone now. So so golden eagles moved out into the islands. The golden eagles when they moved out there. Started to eat the feral pigs around there. Also, this rare species of FOX it's called the island FOX, it looks like a cat. It's a tiny little FOX, they're cute. They're adorable looking and the island FOX, very curious about people, but the island FOX doesn't have it in their DNA to be on the alert for the golden eagles. So the golden eagles basically started feasting on them push them to the point of extinction. So you had this whole chain-reaction biologists. Looked at this and said, okay, we need to grab what I foxes we have left. We need to bring them in for a captive breeding program to try to save them. And so so you had this whole cascade of events. And so the biologists had to figure out how these things were interrelated, and they started to fix them. And it's fascinating. So what what do you mean, they started to fix them? So what happened was they finally got enough of the bald eagles that they were able to reintroduce them to the islands than the golden eagles move into the islands. They get a trapping program. They relocated them to another part of California and into Nevada as well. And then the island Faulk. Is had gotten to the point where they could re release them onto the islands, and they've just been growing it, Tim Kuhnen who's the National Park Service biologists. I've talked for twenty years about this project. He said maybe in our lifetime. We could see the island FOX recover it happened in less than twenty years. It's remarkable biologists. Around the world, we ended this because humans were able to fix the problem. But wait, there's more there is more because because there's other non native eucalyptus trees, and there's aunts. Specifically Argentine ants which you find on Santa Cruz island. They went in. And they said, okay, we're gonna dust for these ants. We're going to get rid of these ants. But the problem is how do you know that you've gotten rid of all the ants? Okay. I'm sorry. Go ahead. A little Cup about that. Yes. Very very effective to the point that we cannot find any aunts with us in our human abilities. We plow over sixty thousand dollars, right? A plant where we think we did a really good job on the treatment. And we're bringing out this dog to try to verify our results to ensure that we can say, okay, we're done. We did their education. Now, that's Christina buzzer with the nature conservancy. So what they did is this group called working dogs for conservation in Montana train the dog specifically to find Argentine the only dog of its type in the world.
