"It is the consumer across the globe, not so much. The PGA togue is a you borrowing ideas, footwear from other sports. Oh, absolutely. I gonna tell us anything. Yeah. Exactly. One of our, you know, unbelievable abilities here at Nike is that, you know, things that work in one sport may have an application and other sports as it may be. It's very cool the way that we've kind of set our lineup. We've got one area of footwear, that's directly built around that we call it our iphones, and it's bringing shoes that you know, like an air max or like a row, she that the that you probably have in your closet taking them. And maybe changing last ten percent for with needed for for golf putting traction on it putting stability elements in it and things like that. And then we've got other areas where we may take something like our our react phone, which has been really prominent are running shoes right now and applying that to golf in the right spots to provide cushioning because we spent so much of our time on our feet when we play around golf, you're at minimum for hours and sometimes upwards of five six seven hours, if you warm up into some of the things that you do before around. And so, you know, we talk about a lot of times with the Gulf shoe needs in the swing phase of it. But it's also in the walking face that it's it's incredibly critical. You think about a PGA tour player playing a tournament? They're gonna play four competitive rounds? They're gonna walk six seven miles in those each one of those rounds they're walking more than a marathon worth of where the miles in a given week, and the other expression you have right there. That's that's different. Right. You don't think PJ tour players, it's hopeless. It's over, but you have to be. To that point to say. Well, that's obvious. Why didn't I think of that before? And then you say, well, that's why we put this foam in there. That's why we struck too. That's why we have to have a wellness attitude for our athletes. Absolutely. If you were to make the perfect swing golf shoot a swinging stiff as a board and have carbon plates everywhere. The the really really stiff if you wanna make the perfect and you'd have blisters on your feet by time. You got the whole twelve xactly. Exactly not a walking. Right. We need a really good walking shoop. It wouldn't be stable enough to swing. So it's finding that healthy balance between. Wow, if you if you knew before, I think you realize you didn't know before because he's just giving us a awful lot of insight. Chuck. Yeah. Club tech, but the shoe design them where they're going plow. Hey. Hey product line manager at Nike shoes. You have been a stall for us. And you know, what we gonna dial number again in the future and have another chat..

"They know when something's own something's off. And it is that magic that intuitive magic that they have with the course with the club. They know everything that's going on as well as they got a really good caddy behind them. It's about them when they go up and they start to address the bowl. All right. Let's let's move away from Gulf focus on where you all right now. Because Chuck, and I could go into the Gulf Coast and Chuck's fall gopher etiquette than I am turn up in my sneakers, and my denims, and I'd be thrown out immediately. But you're all about the Gulf shoes now and without being grounded, the ho- physics and rotation of a of of a golf swing count be this. How much of the physics has found its way into shoe design for you. It's been unbelievable. It's been cool to take, you know, a lot of that very scientific thinking that we had with with golf equipment and apply footwear. You know, we look at golf. We're kinda three ways you look at the fit of that off shoot the right of that Gulf traction that golf shoe in all three components really are things that are necessary that that may be your trainers or your running shoes wouldn't allow you to have to hit up hit a proper all shots. You think about the way that we set that the athlete up the height they are off the ground. We'll be introduced, you know, the playoff on the bottom of that shoe. Plus, we're actually getting somebody higher off the ground of drop off set. Those terms of people that were running shoes would understand as well. But the difference between the the height of your heel versus height of your toes. We can manipulate not only a golfer setup position the positions are able to get into the golf swing but also potentially the fit of their clubs. If you get an athlete that has dropped too low on their heels. Their hands are going to sit lower all of a sudden golf clubs. You're going to be more upright. They might hit some hooks the going to go on they're going to come underneath is going to go. Do you do with the shoes the same? The Soka plans do in the high end athletes do. And bespoke the footwear, or is it do you know, what Usery met books over there? We, you know, we've we've gone through kind of both versions we've got about three players on our staff right now that we we bespoke their footwear for and it's generally out of need not out of vanity. So you look at you may have a player who's got an abnormally wide foot. You may have a player who's had an injury and may need something different. We've got some players that wear full-sized difference between their left shoe in the right shoe on over. On uncommon but sold bespoke some of those but as a whole we've got about ninety five percent of our players wearing shoes right out of the box. Now that was that was a big thing for us that we've made in a change in the last couple of years. So what's what's the thinking? Because to do that you've got to be really in tune with. The footwear and the needs. And how you find that sweet spot for the broad spectrum of of the shape and size of fate coming in. Fate light bony Fred Flintstone. You got feet like a whole bit. And then you've got this lend the ballerinas comes along. So how do you find that area? Without there being a problem. It's we do a lot of lot of testing a lot of consumer testing our journey. You know, currently right now, we're working on footwear out as far as two thousand twenty one. I've looked at our summer two thousand twenty one line, and we know whoops going to go in that. Through that process that basically twenty four month process will do consumer testing with you know, upwards of one hundred fifty consumers on N each one of those were asking him to wear it for eight to ten to twelve rounds. And so not only consulting with just two or players to make sure that their stuff's, right? But it's it's working with that variety of consumers across the globe. Because that's what you you. Mock..

"That equation changes which it's probably not gonna change drastically. When you speak with the engineers in the designers and the people behind creed in these clubs. It's basically two hundred five Graham ball of clay, and they can they can mold and shape in just that two hundred five grand ball, clay. Anyway, they want the one thing that can't do. They can't add play to it. They can't take clay away. And then you start figuring out. Okay. The US GI in the aren- of set rules. It can only be four hundred sixty sees big. It can't have anything that passes through it or create any open holes in it. There's regulations about where the house will must be placed in how the shaft can go into it. And then you've got your regulations on moving parts and how they have to lock into place. And things like that. So it's some point the equation defined for us. And it's it's about finding creative ways to to solve that quesion. If that makes sense, how do you 'cause luck in hockey stick you have pivot points? Yup. Do you play with those along the show off of the golf club? Absolutely. So that the shaft companies are fantastic. They use a lot of things they call them E, I curves or bend. You can have shops that kick higher up the shaft or lower up down the shaft, you can have create stiffness is in certain areas, which will produce certain fields in certain characteristics. In terms of ball flight of launch spin. Is there anyone that you might be able to know that you know, you've fitted for a club, and you've done this whole process that we just discussed and then they saw like a dramatic change in their game professional or otherwise pro pro preferably professional because then we would know who it is. Or am. I just being a little too big with you know, the way this works. You know, it's funny. You you you have these many wins. And you look at all the the people who work out on the PGA tour in support for the different equipment manufacturers and every week that's their job. They're there to to do what we would call emergency surgery. You might find a player who has missed three cuts in a row, and is just fed up with their driver, and they're gonna come to you on Monday morning, and they're going to say, hey, I need to drive and time and time again, they'll get a new driver that fall in love with it. And they'll start making cuts they'll they'll have a win. So you hear stories like that every single week where you know, sometimes it's just confidence the players lost confidence in that golf club or a set of golf ups. Sometimes it's truly finding something, you know, with huge distance gain or a huge miss correction where you know, you've got a got a player who's made a swing change. And all the sudden, they're they're not able to hit the golf club the way they used to. And you see these these. Crazy changes where an athlete grabs a new golf club. And all of a sudden, they're they they're fairways goes up there fairly statistic goes up by ten fifteen twenty percent. And that's the difference between the making a cutter or finishing top ten or.

"What had happened with the equipment is it's allowed kids and to these clubs become so forgetting that they could swing Adam harder and harder and harder. So. Kids are learning how to hit the ball harder every year and the clubs are letting do that. So I think that's a big thing that you see on the increase in distance back when you were playing a wooden club. And you didn't have the graphite your when you missed one of those. They didn't go very far at all. So you really learn how to hit the golf ball properly every time. And if you wanted to really step on one he had to you're gonna pay a consequence if you missed it because it would really go off line where it's a day is kids. Learn how to just smash it and there's not as much consequence. If you just completely go at once. So you're gonna see kids getting harder and harder and harder and harder. You sound a little bit. Like the old man telling him to get off your lawn. Okay. Hawks today. I am forty now. But I still hit it as far as anybody. See he didn't file to remind us. These still hidden is good as anyone. That's it. Because that's what pros through that competitive. If you if you if you're going to go into conversation line where maybe it's no good. They're going to just bring you back and remind you just how good they are Jimmy, man. Thanks. Thank you. Jimmy will that six PGA toll wins and counting counting at a man.

Thank you to Jimmy woke up the twenty sixteen PGA championship winner. And of course, our very own personal astrophysicist, Dr Neil degrasse Tyson taking us through Estra, photography and Gulf technology. Right. We are going to take a break when we come back. We're going to drill deeper into golf tech with Matt plumb. He is the former global product line manager of Nike golf clubs and a man who is now global product line manager of Nike Gulf shoes. And I can tell you this interview is unbelievable. Do stick around. We'll be back shortly. Hey, Chuck nice here telling you about a new show. It's the same show. You already know it star talk.

"Stop and you can actually go to golf ball as gonna father. We'll be able to grab it more with the groups and put more spin on it. And a lot of guys don't really do that though, it takes a while to get acclimated and accustomed to a golf ball to know exactly what it does and every situation with the wind. And so guys don't really do that you try to find a. Off ball, great all around her absolutes, and do so for somebody at your level, these things I mean, the the level of competition is so high it makes sense for these things to you know, give you an edge. All things are big small things are huge things when you're at a very high level of competition. So for the regular guy who's listening right now who likes to get out on a Saturday. And you know, he's playing a public course. And do any of these things actually make a difference? A new I think I think the most important thing you can do for a player is actually getting properly fitted for set of golf going to sitter finding finding a chef that works. Good for you. And then the shaft is really the engine, and then, and then it goes down to looks you you look down at a golf you want it to look good and. There's a lot of confidence ago's and getting something that you'd like. You can you can dislike somebody else's golf club. Walked by got some ugly clever. Yeah. We do it all the time. I sure hope that clubs feels good because it's. I missed that. Like. Shoes are ugly. Got those are comfortable. You must be saying that a look ugly shoes out the what's the famous golf movie with Rodney Dangerfield check. I missed that that they need to that scene in Caddyshack someone's golf club. Jimmy before we have to let you go, and sadly, sadly, we will have to let you go. The guys are coming out. Now that punch him four hundred yards. This Toca guys being able to drill it past five hundred is that the future of the game. Or are we looking at still the best of the best of the best? Not just the power guys the power guys out here. Don't hit it that far. You're talking about the guys just long competitions there. There is going to be a new classic player out here. And it's already kind of starting to hit.

A man here comes Jimmy. We're gonna have to talk about galaxies. I'm never the one that has to bring it up everybody. Who's brings it up to me? So it's pretty interesting. I've had guys ask for art work, and I've some stuff guys home. Yeah. That's cool. So as you as you look at this website, there's a progression of my history with the strana me or how I process data and in the very beginning. It was very bright and oversaturated and my color balances off and as I get down towards the bottom. I think my skills have gotten a lot better. I've had a bunch of astronomy pictures of the day from NASA. And so that's a big honor. Yeah. So this website APO deal. All right. And it's a every day. There's a beautiful picture from somewhere in the universe. And you can submit your pictures. I got AP. This out astronomy picture of the day, right, and many people have it as their screen saver or these your first thing it's or or the the homepage. You come up too on your on your why do you have to look at your own website every single time? Right. When you look at the changes every day. So congratulations on getting some AP OD action. I have one eight O G. It was a hinge put that up. Once I got in Manhattan hens one really after it's stuff that Jimmy's. Yeah. I think I've got seven or eight Neil got some work to do I'm only gonna keep getting more with this to Chile. I think. Yeah, that's fantastic. So let me ask you this is this is a silly question. But if you could hit a golf ball to any galaxy, which one would be if I get hit wanna add it. Yeah. I don't know and dramas pretty cool. I've actually you can if you get into darkened spot. It's it's so big. And it's so close you can actually see with your eyes. I've done in a couple of places in New Mexico been all the it for my own. Sometimes if the guy's really transparent drama is ethical it's a hard galaxy shoot because the course O'Brien you have to do HDR type exposure real long, and then you can get the go deep, you can get all the crazy stuff on the outside. And then you gotta shoot type for the core. And I've got a couple of really good pictures of Android on there. Just to be clear. He's talking about how bright something is that you otherwise can't see unless you're in a very dark place. That's how good is photography is. Well, just so, you know, yes. So drama is the farthest object visible to the naked human. It's two million light years. Yeah. Thus single farthest object that we we can see it Rennick. Yes. Probably hit ball to a galaxy. But wait a minute. We have other golf, you know, golf has been around the solar system. You know, you realize this and that but the so Jimmy fun. When you always hear they. Talk about landing putting Landers on Mars by traveling all these many miles over these many months leaving earth, which is a moving target to Mars, which is a moving target. You have to send it to not where Mars is. But where we'll be in nine months where they then they always reference golf when they do it. This is like a hole in one over however, many because they landed within like a five kilometer circle on Mars, and they add a it's a better hole in one than any all at ever hit..

We have the good doctor with a stock to Neil degrasse Tyson, and you and this one icon surprised, but intrigued me, you're an Astro photography, sir. That's amazing had an earth. Did you get into that? I think all stand as a as a kid I had telescope and looked at the moon, and I got older and our first child is being born. And it was kind of those deals where I was always interested in it. And my wife said, hey, are you want for Christmas? I said how about telescope? So it started there. And then I was fascinated with all the pictures and stuff that I'd seen that everybody had been taken especially from amateurs and said men, that'd be pretty cool. Let me try that in my backyard. Well. Figured you. Couldn't learn that you couldn't do that very well from the city lights, and so it just turned into an obsession, they get to darker and darker places, and I got better and better equipment and a talent. Just that's how it all started. I nothing against golf. I'm only here because your Astro photography. In this interview. Yeah. It's it's. Uh-huh. Experience. I've had so much fun doing Jimmy. I have to ask you because I'm on your site. He's got a website. Yes. Private secret. Advocation I have to now say something good. He referenced amateurs Toronto. There's an amateur strana because an expert in the night sky. That's right. Do not confuse amateur astronomer with amateur neurosurgeon. Profession where you would not go to them amateur showed up on their door, by the way. That's why I have no feeling in my left leg amateur neurosurgeon. So so amateur Stromer is actually a badge of honor in our field. These are people who live for their access to the night sky and made it a hobby like none other. And they're the ones who can get you around and at and just ask them about their telescope, and we'll talk to you for the next hour. Well, that's what what what do you pack. Excuse me. I got him now. What do you have? I'm using a sixteen inch Ritchey criterion. And. Yeah. You're not gonna go. That's called a non portable telescope. It is. Yeah. Actually, just got it set up in the Atacama desert Chile literally like three days ago. So we've shifted up from California. And it's it's literally chilly right now, you just lost you Ramat to status. Yeah. Chuck Chuck is checking out your website, and I'm sort of rubber neck. Awesome. One other thing the common desert. Yes. Look it up in the Guinness Book world records. It is the driest place on earth. Never right has never rain and a little bit that it was raining. I think somebody was peeing at the time. And rain comes from clouds. So it's basically one of the cloud cloudless Globus places on earth. So he knows where he puts his telescope. Jay. Three hundred three hundred twenty clear nights here. Three hundred twenty clear nights year. That's a pretty good run. I gotta say. No, it's it's great to see you so excited, Jerry. You're like we've never seen him this excited to have a guest on. Especially the sports. Yeah. Tokyo's through doc Skywalker because it sounds like Hof sky at night how Star Wars. So you'd better explain for Novus like me.

It's very cool the way that we've kind of set our lineup. We've got one area of footwear that's directly built around that. We call it our iphones, and it's bringing shoes that you know, like Airmax or like a row, she the that you probably have in your closet taking them in maybe changing that last ten percent for what's with needed for for golf putting traction on it putting stability elements in it and things like that. And then we've got other areas where we may take something like our our react foam, which has been really prominent are running shoes right now and applying that to golf in the right spots to provide cushioning because we spent so much of our time on our feet when we play around golf your at minimum for hours and sometimes upwards of five six seven hours, if you warm up into some of the things that you do before around in. So, you know, we talk about a lot of times with the Gulf shoe needs in the swing phase of it. But it's also in the walking face that it's it's incredibly critical..

"They know when something's own something's off. And it is that magic that intuitive magic that they have with the course with the club. They know everything that's going on as well as they got a really good caddy behind them. It's about them when they go up and they start to address the bowl. All right. Let's let's move away from Gulf cups focus on where you are right now. Because Chuck, and I could go into the Gulf Coast and Chuck's fall. What gopher etiquette than I am odd turn up in my sneakers and Medina GMs? And I'd be thrown out immediately. But you're all about the Gulf shoes now and without being grounded the whole physics and rotation of a Gulf of a golf swing count be this. How much of the physics has found its way into shoe design for you. It's been unbelievable. It's been cool to take a lot of that very scientific thinking that we had with with golf equipment and apply footwear. You know, we we look at golf where in kind of three ways you look at the fit of that golf shoe the right of that Gulf in the traction, Doug, all shoe, and all three components really are things that are necessary that that may be your trainers or your running shoes wouldn't allow you to have to hit up hit a proper all shots. You think about the way that we set the athlete up the height? They are off the ground is when we introduce, you know, the playoff on the bottom of that shoe, plus we're actually getting somebody higher off the ground of drop or offset. Those terms of people that were running shoes would understand as well. But the difference between the height of your heel versus the height of your toes..

"That's done. Exactly that. Yeah. Absolutely. Absolutely. I think you know, one size fits all maybe not so much because you look at, you know, MRs Habur camp at sixty eight years old, and you know, the really good young eighteen year old player was planned at sage valley. You've got some varying physical attributes that may be one-size-fits-all is a little bit little bit extreme so one one size fits you. It seems it seems kind of like that. When I think about what you just said earlier is it that you guys are now looking at clubs in such a way. Way. And once again, I'm talking for the average player. Okay. Not not. You're not you're talking to woods, which by the way. Congratulations tonight. He. Along with tiger. Because as tiger goes. So does Nike you guys. You know, you guys are kind of married together and in a wonderful in a wonderful union. So congratulations. Thank you. We like to say as as tiger goes show, the Gulf business goes I mean, people talking about moving the needle tiger is the needle in terms of the Gulf business. Absolutely. But from what you said earlier, and what you just said about, you know, MRs whoever and the young eighteen year old are you guys now looking at clubs in terms of taking the players game. And then making the club to kind of I don't know compensate for player deficiencies. So that you can actually find your correction in the club. Is that what I'm hearing you say, absolutely. I mean, the old adage goes a game messes. Right. And it's it's making your MRs better is generally what we're all about whether your to your point talking about the tour caliber player, you're talking about the average player, we all have missed tendencies. And if we can make those MRs. Certain percentage is better. You know, when we get to the golf course we get away from the driving orange get on the golf course if you can miss fifteen percent, less right? Or if you miss fifteen percent longer than you normally would have missed potentially made you better ultimately shooting lower scores or after so the club tixx away, the player era, it can not remove it completely, but reduces reduces. Absolutely. That's interesting because you know, VO saying it the angry the anger gopher Benz the club over his knee. And then. Let me. Over time blame him tolls and rather than himself. But you've taken the other point where we can reduce the need few bend that over your knee or rapid round a tree. You won't be able to do that. Now, you'll have a player like you've seen a player like fling the club into the water hazard now. Now, they'll do that and go oh my God. I'm so sorry. Cops. So what what technology is left. The you could utilize to take it to another level or are you at the level possibly unless something brilliant comes alo-. I mean, I think there's you know, we used to jokingly call it unobtainable, right? There's there's gotta be some material after that. Nobody's experimentally. There hasn't hasn't been created yet. So I'm stealing that by the way. Thank you. Yes. Staling that. I think the idea it's funny when you think about, you know, everybody loves to talk about drivers. But when you think about a driver head at the end of the day, it's, you know,.

"The golf ball when they fight a slice. That's where I think the average player's gonna see the biggest games. So let me ask you this. When you talk about like matching players too. Clubs, and I'm talking all players not just professional players. We're talking to you know, golf is a hugely popular sport. And you see people out especially this time of year all over the country. So what can you tell about your swing based on? Let's say like the Divet that you leave. And then what would that do in terms of clubs, and what you want to do with what type of club you at liked to have only ask maybe there's guys out there right now listening just like that they might be able to pick something up from you as a tip. So just from the Divet that I leave what I be able to find something out about my swing or what kind of club I need you can find out about the debit. That's you know, in in my experience with fitting. That's how we people as we read their give it, and it's it's a little bit of matching that art in that science. So when you look at the Divet, it's kind of a blueprint of what happened during that golf. Shop is give it on a well-struck shot. Stop starts after you struck the golf ball. If you look at it did. And you see it. A little bit longer on the to- side of the golf club specifically with an iron you you've got some indication that potentially that golf club was either swung over the top. Or also your clubs may be to flat for you. I'm in terms of the lying measurement. If you see that the Gulf the dividends a little bit longer on the heel side, potentially golf club was was swamp from the inside. But also potentially could be a little bit too upright. So the Divet combined with what we saw in the shape of the shot will often tell us a lot about if those fit are matched to that consumer that that professional that's amazing because I hadn't now you say that Doug, Gary that Sylvia's, but until you go Divet, well that just means you hate in the ground, the Boone, you fold. But now now you've got so much. I mean, this is this is really cute data analysis where you're saying, you know, well, this minimal here. The the swing end is a major disruption the foreign where the bowl lens because it's taking it off into the trees, the wherever it is the water has. So, yeah, it's it's it's an interesting thing. I mean, go right go back to the data is because every sport now has an avalanche of data analytics has has that had an effect on club design has that had a massive effect on golf and players and such hugely hugely. I mean, if you you walk up and down PGA tour event nowadays, you don't see many players hitting shots or hit practicing without some sort of data capture device behind them whether into track man or a flights Koper or g see quad. You're seeing all these players wanting to know data about each one of their shots and being able to adjust whether it's for conditions. Whether it's for the weather swinging day for for us on the manufacturing side to be able to to measure in calculate all of that data starts to show, trends and themes and areas where we can create improvement. How do you just give me an idea? Chuck, you know, what this means my brain hurts. How are we away? From the perfect one-size-fits-all golf club that will adjust itself is that just me having fence a fantasy moment or is that possible? I mean, one size fits all think is maybe a bit of a fantasy moment. But it's it's a nice northstar star for people to start to think about I think one size fits you. You know, you've seen some companies start to explore the single length irons in the single line. So you can in theory. Bring one swing and have all fourteen year golf clubs thirteen year golf clubs fifth price into Shambo. Absolutely. Yep. He may not be one of us. But he is gopher..

Thank you guys. Thank you to Jimmy woke up the twenty sixteen PGA championship winner. And of course, our very own personal astrophysicist, Dr Neil degrasse Tyson taking us through Astro, photography and Gulf technology. Right. We are going to take a break when we come back. We're going to drill deeper into golf tech with Matt plumb. He is the former global product line manager of Nike golf clubs and a man who is now global product line manager of Nike Gulf shoes. And I can tell you this interview is unbelievable. Do stick around. We'll be back shortly. Welcome back to playing with science fabulous fabulous interview with Jimmy Walker and you have to check out dark sky Walker. He's not just a guy with a telescope pointed. At the stars. He's a guy that takes the most amazing photographs and brings them into the public domain from one guy whose heads in the stars to a guy who is definitely priced here on earth got his feet on the ground yet. He was global product line manager for Nike golf clubs. He is now global product line manager for Nike Gulf shoes. Both of those senses of vital to go it self. So Matt Plum, welcome to plan with science, sir. Thank you. Thank you. Welcome. All right. Let's take a brief trip back through history. We now it was wooden and is in the whole thing. So where did we go? I mean from that kind of getting the ions getting everything sophisticated to where we all. Now, if you give us a quick journey that would be perfect for our listeners. Yeah.

"Right. And you'll see Jimmy's images these are so stunning. And they're so professional. I have to admit they're they're so amateur there so amateur. Yes. That's my field. Right. That's that's the good. That's that's the biggest compliment is the most professional atrophy can't do hand do that. They don't to. They're so amateur and they're so professional. I honestly, I honestly thought you took these off NASA dot com and just slapped your name on it or something. But how do you process these? How do you? How does what is the process of coming up with this final image? I'm just I'm just curious. It's got to be intense. You don't have to get into. Shop gets too bad name today because everybody thinks it's it's correcting flaws and people spaces and the whole Hollywood deal, but Photoshop is actually an incredibly powerful software program. And that's what all the Hubble images are put together on. It's what all the Mars Rover stuff. And I it's all splice together all using Photoshop so an incredible power program. And that's what I use. So when you take a picture? You're not paid by Dobie. I'm not Okay. okay. It'd be that's funny that I mean, it's just like it's it takes a lot of time. It takes hours our hours of data to get a good signal. You got to thinking you're shooting into the middle of the dark sky. There's nothing there you have to cumulate a lot of light. And a lot of soak time on a picture. And then so I use a monochrome cameras. So I have to go red green and blue and shoot for each color, and then I do a black and white all the detail by the time, you get done with a lot of these pictures have over twenty four hours worth of data. And you just you software to stack the pictures on top of each other and increase signal, and that's how you get a really clean pretty image. Not noisy. Can you take you take a picture in a dark room with your cell phone camera? You can't do it. It looks all pixellated and nasty. And and so that's imagine that in the middle of the night in space trying to take a picture or something that you can't see. So it takes hours and hours and hours and hours to do it. What's going on? There is in a very low signal. The picture you get is mostly noise, right, actually. And you see as as for those who are uninitiated noise would be distortion. No, no, not to start. Well, it's just it's it's well, it could come from many different places. It could be just the temperature of the camp. Okay. When you take a picture at the beach this bright sun, and the the exposures thousands of a second all the light you need is there in that fraction of a second. When Jimmy said, if you look if to photographing, something, your eyes can't see you just told it's there, you got to open up the shutter and just leave the writing or accumulate enough data, and what happens is the as you cumulated the thing that's their build. Right and the noisy. When I say noise this visual noise. So the noise that's there. Sometimes it's up sometimes down that ultimately cancels out. But the signal that you're after bills, right? So you increase your signal relative to the noise and he stacking when he says. Stack. He's got all these images that have noise going in every direction. But the thing is enter signal is always the same as there always ran he stacks, the signal rises up right out of the firmament..
