NPR's Geoff Brumfield has more on the mission, which through robotic probes, hopes to send back rock samples. The mission, known as Charlo, five, is a robotic lander. It will drop down for lunar orbit onto the surface, drill into the soil, collect samples and then load those samples into a section of the lander that will blast back off and eventually return to Earth. Bret, the Navy of the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory says this mission is hard, even 50 years after the Apollo landings that's still not a trivial activity. In fact, aside from the U. S, only Russia has been able to send back lunar sample to using robotic Landers like this one. The precise timeline of when the landing will take place remain somewhat secretive, but the entire mission is expected to last until mid December. Geoff Brumfield NPR news Hot WHEELS, cars..

Been confirmed before there is no one who can question their subject matter expertise on their commitment to our country, and I'm hoping that because of the relationship that the president elect Has with many members in the Republican Party in the Senate, but also more importantly, because I hoped that we could appeal to them to do what's right for our country that the confirmations will move forward swiftly. And with the support of both sides of the aisle, briefly speaking. What would you have the president elect? Do if he asked you about the millions of Americans who don't know they're watching news, Max. They're getting their news wherever they are. They just don't believe the fact that he won and that's the reality they're living in. How would the president reach out to them if it all He will certainly reach out to them. He made the commitment during the campaign. The campaign is a Democrat. But he governed for all of America, and I think he has just the right temperament and touch. Make it clear that he knows he has a role in helping the nation hell, and he's committed to doing that as well as the team around him, and he'll reach out in many different ways to make it clear. That he's there for all of them, including making sure that we tackle this vaccine and get it out and distributed around the country as quickly as possible.

Yet quandary is an astronomer, the University of Maryland who tracks China's space program. He says. This mission is special because it will both land on the moon and pick up some lunar soil to carry back to earth. It will be the first time that we get something back from the moon and 40 years. Yea says This mission is part of a long term Chinese plan to explore the moon. First with satellites than Landers and drovers. And now a sample return for China. The space program is a way to signal the country's superpower status. Moreover, by promoting space exploration, you're creating new avenues to collaborate with other countries. Scientists around the world are excited about this mission. Brett the Navy is the planetary scientists at the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory. They're trying. The five mission is great because they're targeting the surface that we think is one of the younger parts of the moon. Moon Rocks are actually an important way. Scientists like did never You figure out how old things are. Here's how it works. Older parts of the moon have more crater, so counting craters gives a rough estimate of the age. But that estimate gets a whole lot better with scientists have rocks from those regions. They can precisely date the samples and labs here on Earth. Most rock samples from earlier moon missions are from old parts of the lunar surface. This landing spot is much newer. This particular area we think was a sea of love about a billion years ago. That should help vastly improve the crater counting method, which can also be used to look at planets like Mars and Mercury. So we're really getting this kind of Solar system wide picture from it.

"The history of satellite navigation dates back to the very first satellite Sputnik 1 the Sputnik satellite wasn't in orbit very long. But while it was there, it had a radio Beacon that took here from Earth to American scientists William Garner and George weiffenbach of the John Hopkins Applied Physics laboratory quickly figured out that they could determine the position of Sputnik by measuring the dog or shift of the radio signal. It was sending out soon scientists were wondering if they could do the opposite determine a person's location on earth based on a signal received from satellite in nineteen sixty. They tested the first satellite navigation system called transit or navsat. The initial goal was to provide location information to Polaris nuclear submarines who needed location data to finish their missiles Transit consisted of five satellites that could provide accuracy up to two hundred meters or 660 feet, which is close enough for lobbing nuclear weapons while 200-page Was better than nothing. It wasn't great in more importantly. It took quite a bit of time to get a reading. It wasn't something you could just instantly get like you can in today's GPS devices a big step took place in nineteen sixty-seven nineteen sixty nine and nineteen seventy-four with the launch of the time Nation satellites. These satellites were the first satellites put into orbit which had highly accurate clocks off the 1974 launch having the first atomic clock on a satellite, they could broadcast an accurate time signal globally, which is important for navigation. If you remember back to my timekeeping episode, it was the problem of longitude and navigation which was the impetus for developing accurate clocks, which could be taken out to see this also served as a proof-of-concept for the placement of accurate clock song satellites, which would become the center of the GPS program. There were many different electronic navigation systems in place by the early 1970s. The transit satellites were still functioning and there were also ground base wage. Sims as well all of them have their pluses and minuses but none of the systems were really the solution that they were looking for in nineteen seventy-three a team in the Pentagon laid down a framework for a system that synthesized all of the various programs which currently existed and created a new system called navstar. The first navstar satellite was launched in 1978. The system was intended to be for the exclusive use of the military. However, in nineteen eighty-three Korean Airlines flight 007 was shot down over Soviet airspace. It was something that could have been avoided if the aircraft had accurate navigation information after the aircraft was down President Reagan ordered that the GPS be open for free civilian use. However, they adopted a policy of what was called selective availability that meant that some higher accuracy frequencies were only available to the military and other less accurate frequencies were available to the public the next big advance in June. S occurred on May first two thousand when President Clinton ordered the end of selective availability civilians would get the same level of accuracy as the military at this point differential GPS systems were being used by civilians which greatly improved accuracy. So there wasn't really a point in locking military channels. Also the military had figured out how to deny civilian signals on a regional basis..

"Doctor found cheap by the way, took off his mask at the baseball game while he was sitting with people. No, no, no. Dr. Fauci is a saint. But this is Evidence of the fact that we don't have Or we don't have the information. I don't know that we know. But how bad the media is it conveying it and how bad the so called experts are at conveying it. Information. The contradictory nature of these two tweets. Three minutes of parts sent this morning daily mail online. Experts claim new mutation of the Corona viruses. Mohr infectious but less deadly. Okay? Baltimore Sun. New Research from Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory confirms that the Corona virus has not significantly changed Senate's since it began infecting people widely in the Baltimore Washington area in March. They can't both be true. They can't both be true yet they were both reported to day within three minutes of one another. Changed. More infectious, less deadly. Be good news. Or hasn't changed. We're all going to die. It's still out there. It's coming to get you. Which is it? It can't be both the media because a so called experts said it is reporting it, Hopkins said this except it's claimed this. All right, well, we'll just throw it out there. It would be nice if these people Would be aware of what's going on in the world would have a memory of what they'd previously reported themselves because I guarantee you there's a version of both of these stories on the other's websites. And all over the Internet in every place that reports either or both of these stories today will have an alternate version of the other. On their website. We've heard so many different stories from this. You have to wipe down everything you bring home from the grocery store because it can live on surfaces for a very long time to you don't really have to worry about wiping down things. It doesn't really live on surfaces all that well. Well, which is it? You must wear a mask because without a mask virus, Khun Travel 6 ft. Okay? Well, if you have don't have a mascot. Now it can travel 16 ft, according to one study. Okay. One study doesn't tell me Anything, especially six months in, But the real question is Why the hell did we not know how far it can travel in the air already? I feel is, though I could study that I feel as though I could Discover that it's a pretty easy way to figure that out. Is it airborne? Is it not airborne? There are stories in every major news publication out there on both sides of that. Not really acknowledging the other side or that we'd reported the contrary in the past. Well, here's an idea. Get a sealed room. Get some people with Corona virus in there. Have them hang around. Talk. Test the air while they're in there. See how far away from them? It is Detective. And then have them clear the room. Test the air again in another half an hour test the air again. Lather, Rinse, repeat, and then that should give you a pretty good idea of what's going on. But still somehow this basic thing. We don't know. How long does it live on surfaces? Well, here's an idea. Get an Amazon box. Put it in a room full of people sick with Corona virus. Put it in the same room. Take the two birds with one stone approach. Put it in the same room. And cough or sneeze or whatever they do. They've all got it so they can't give it to each other. Have him in there. Maybe have them handle the box, play a little game of hot potato with the box, Then set the box down. That's the box. Make sure that the virus is on it. Then half an hour test box. See if the virus is on and lather. Rinse. Repeat throughout the course of the day until the virus is no longer detectable, and then you'll have a pretty good idea of what it is. You could have different types of surface is out there and see What happens to the virus? It just seems like this should be knowable. This should be known yet every day. When I look at the news, there's a news story that contradicts another story doesn't acknowledge the other story exists. They just throw it out there. Because some expert burped up some new factoid or made some surmising about something. And suddenly, it's reported as fact. I don't put this down to just the experts. The experts are screwing up, Okay? Don't report preliminary anything. Don't tell us anything until you've confirmed it. And don't don't rush it out. Who cares if you're first? Figure it out. Get the answer. Show it around here. Let them confirm the answer or deny the answer. Once you have the confirmation of your answer, then tell us not this. Well, you know, they could be out there could be anywhere. It's probably not anywhere it do. It's not out there. Make up your damn minds. That's all I ask the American public and the way that the economy is rebounding. Is a testament to how we as human beings and in particular in this country. Can adapt to whatever is going on. We can find a way we'll find level will find water will will seek its level. We confined sea level on this thing and adapt and grow. Until it's done. We can't do that. If you're constantly just splashing the water around. Cannon balling into the deep end, shoving the water around creating a world pool. This right now. Aside from the problems with collection, like as we heard, John lots a on this show that if somebody is hospitalized in isolation, and they're there for 10 days, and they're tested every day to find out, you have to have two Negative test two days in a row to be considered cleared of Corona virus. They're tested 10 times over 10 days if they tested positive for eight days, and then luckily the last two days, they test negative and they're cleared. They will have accounted for 10 tests and eight since eight of them were positive that would be reported as eight new cases. One person. Who was already known to be positive. Would be responsible for eight additional cases. That's the nature of the garbage of the data that we're collecting and the nature in the garbage in the reporting that we're getting On that day there were five million cases There have been five million tests. That came back positive. But you have no idea how many patients there are out of it. That also does, by the way is bastardized every other piece of data. What's the hospitalization rate? We don't know their five million positive tests. But what if there are only four million actual people who accounted for those five million tests? Well, a 20% increase or decrease in the number of actual human beings who have the virus can have a significant impact on the hospitalization rate. That nobody seems to be concerned about this. Nobody seems to care. Nobody seems to be bothered of it. They just report whatever again is burped up by these so called experts or politicians. And just reported as if it's gospel truth. At the end of all of this when we look back when we try to learn something from this pandemic for future generations so that we might be able to lessen the impact. Of a future pandemic. The data that we've collected will be absolutely worthless and we will have learned nothing. Right now, When you hear people saying, Listen to the science, Listen to the silence. Listen to the science. You have to recognize the science is based off of garbage data. You can't make intelligent decisions. Even in the moment. If you're looking at garbage data, the data is everything. The conclusions can only come from the data. 37% of the people who have allegedly died of Corona virus in New York state. Their corpses tested negative for the virus. That would mean they didn't have it. That would mean we're making it up because the cities and states just say we get paid more. Cork it cove in cases. We don't know what the cause of death was, but they sniffled the other day. So write down is a covert case. Yes, Their body was riddled with cancer. Yes, They died in a motorcycle. But it didn't matter. They probably had Koven, too. Let's count it..

The helium tail at the. The back end of the Helius fear, and that's to me and the towels much further away from the sun, and what the front is because it's taking. These paddock was much longer to reach the spacecraft. It seems the sun situated close to the front of the Hillier Pause, and as the Sun Huddleston space, the helium tail Charles much further behind something, a lot like streaking tail of a comet. These findings are also bringing scientists to step closer to explaining the mysterious Ibex Ribbon. The ribbon is a puzzling feature. One of our biggest biggest discoveries. It's a vast diagnose strip of neutral particles painted across the front of the Helius fear astronomers to determine exactly why this part of the boundary should be so different from the rest of the time Ibex shown that what phones the ribbons very different. What's forming the wrist of the interstellar sky? It appears to be shaped by the direction of the interstellar magnetic field. The office thing gets produced by a secondary process causing the journey of a certain group of energetic mutual particles to roughly. After becoming neutrals rather than ricocheting back towards Ibex. This group of particles would straight in the opposite direction across the pause and into interstellar space, and they're they tracked by the local interstellar medium, so some inevitably collide with passing charged particles losing an electron once again, becoming charged and therefore tied to the surrounding magnetic field after a few years, these charged particles collide with other slow particles, and still there electrons resulting in them once again reentering the Ilias fear. So, the paddock was forming the ribbon jetsam two years more than the rest of the neutral particles observed, and when it comes to the solar wind spike, we talked about ribbon took another two years after the rest of the Helius fear to even start responding. Fire exceeding its initial Chee Mission Ibex will soon be joined by another NASA probe.

Neutrons automobile model resilience when it comes to living a single life strip wound from Adam's nucleus, and it quickly disintegrates down into an electron proton, but scientists don't know exactly how quickly that happens as despite decades of trying to determine it, and that's problematic because nine, the lifetime of a neutron is key to understanding the formation of the elements after the Big Bang now a report in the journal physical.

Are you've precise results that don't line up? The bottle method stores, neutrons and tracks how long they take radioactively decay, which on average is around forty minutes and thirty nine seconds on the other hand, the beam technique FIS a steady stream of neutrons and then tallies, the number of protons created from radioactive decay on average. This takes that fourteen minutes and forty eight seconds some nine seconds longer than the. The bottle method and seconds might not sound like much, but relative to the uncertainty in either methods measurements almost two seconds. It's enormous well. There were searches I continuing to use both the bottle, and be methods to try and resolve the discrepancy. This spent some thirty is looking at alternative ways by measuring neutron. Lifetime's from space. You see cosmic rays colliding with. With Adams in the planet, surface or atmosphere set loose neutrons that gradually wind their way to add space against gravity and the further neutron travels from the planet surface, the more times elapsed, and the more neutrons will radioactivity decayed by comparing the number of neutrons at various altitudes, a spacecraft could estimate the neutron lifetime, and this as messenger spacecraft just happened to. To have the right instrument mentioned that kind of data, see, messenger carried a neutron spectrometer. It was designed to detect neutrons scatter of hydrogen atoms in water molecules, which was suspected, and later confirmed to be frozen as water ice permanent shadow at the base of date craters at the Poles on its way to mercury. Messenger selected neutron data of the cloud strewn. Spacecraft made relations of relied range of heights about Venus and Mercury. The low energy neutrons emitted by Venus's atmosphere.

"Work to develop an effective vaccine by the end of the year. They're watching the coronavirus for changes as they like to say mutations. Because the virus could change in a way that lets it evade vaccine. NPR's John Hamilton reports on how researchers are doing this. The best way to spot mutations or genetic changes in a virus is by comparing all the genes in different samples Peter thelen Johns. Hopkins Applied Physics. Laboratory says back in January. Scientists had only one whole genome sequence to study today. We have over forty seven thousands. Krona virus genes that have been submitted to international databases. New Genomes are added every day from all over the world and theline says each time a new one arrives. It gets close examination what we're looking for in the data is similarity between the virus that first emerged and the genome that had been deposited and any changes that have occurred in the virus overall. He says the virus is. Is circulating today look remarkably similar to the ones that appeared in China late last year. SARS KOBE to simply isn't mutating very quickly. The says that's partly because when the virus generates copies of itself, it uses a sort of proof reading system to catch any errors in the genetic code. So if there's a change it will actually make a correction at a specific location preventing a mutation. Vaccine developers are especially concerned about locations that affects something called the spike protein. It's a structure on the surface of the corona virus that allows it to invade cells, and the goal of current vaccines is to teach the immune system to recognize this spike protein and repel the virus. The says so far. That's looking like a good strategy. The targets for Diagnostics and the targets for vaccine design still today remain the same as we would have designed them in January. Some other viruses have proved. Proved Amenable Am Hud, craft molecular epidemiologist at the University of Basel. Switzerland says the influenza virus is constantly altering its surface proteins flew. Just really loves to change these parts, even swaps them around kind of within the flew family, and that's why we can end up with such different fluids from season to season Blues, the conduct of the previous year's Vaccine Hud graph says measles represents the other extreme children today get a measles vaccine that was developed in the nineteen sixties and protects for a lifetime. She says SARS covy to is likely to fall somewhere between the flu and measles when it comes to developing a vaccine. I think in the short-term. We'll find something I think the big question is whether this is something we'll be able to vaccinate once, and then you never have to get it again, or will it be something you have to get every couple of years to keep your immunity up to? To date Hod Kroft says scientists are unsure because corona virus is so new. We haven't really seen the full diversity of of how the virus can mutate because it gathers mutations over time. We can't speed up time, so we just have to wait and see how it's mutating. Even if the corona virus doesn't change much, it's not clear how long the immune system will remember what it's learned from a vaccine. But Hud craft says at the moment. Vaccine developers have more pressing concerns. It's not a small fee to manufacture the vaccine for billions of people, and then to get it to all of those people and I think we have to keep in mind that even that is going to take months in addition to the months required to develop a safe and effective vaccine in.

Gary You sedation suggests that interstellar comet twenty-one Borisov probably originated in the stash system around a Red Dwarf Borisov seemingly came out of nowhere last year swooping through solar system from another part of the Galaxy. Astronomers knew it was alien to our solar system because of its speed of course but it still looked just like any other comet they had seen until now as journalists have used this.

The IS IS CREATING BRIGHT COMA OR GAS CLOUD. Scientists can then study the coma examining expect to determine its chemical makeup and letting scientists see how molecular compositions and abundances change with distance from the Sun.

Light over four distinct periods between December twenty nineteen January twenty twenty. This allow them to watch is carbon monoxide water oxygen and carbon dioxide ices guest into vape from the comet but the researchers surprised to find that. Bruce's Bright Kerma was rich in carbon monoxide gas relative to water vapor a finding that measurements from NASA swift. Space Telescope was also able to confirm over the same period in fact the carbon monoxide was at least fifty percent more abundant than the water is and that's a value more than three times greater than the average any comment measured in the Inner Solar System. Even though the composition of comets in our solar system can vary significantly from one to the next astronomers have never seen a comment this close to the sun with this much carbon monoxide compared to water you say carbon monoxide is is an extremely volatile molecule shifting from iced gas with the slightest ray of Sunshine. Now in our solar system that face change begins around eighteen billion kilometers from the sun almost three times distance between Pluto and the Senate. It's firths point on the other. Hand water resist sublimating to a gas from a solid until the crisis what we call the snowline near the inner edge of the main asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter around three hundred twenty to thirty kilometers from the sun and for comets once inside the snow line what are almost always dominates over other gases effect only a couple of comments of broken that rule but even those when compared with the amount of carbon monoxide. Borisov puts added any distance were significantly lower Borisov's of carbon monoxide implies that it came from a Planetary Formation Ridge and that was very different types of its chemical properties compared to the disk from which solar system was formed the authors suggest that Borisov probably formed far from star at a point in the star system. We're carbon monoxide is would be stable that way put a from a large planet could still eject the comment from Home Star System reporting in the journal Nature the authors say that all these spaces tend to suggest that birth south probably belonged to a disc of icy dusty debris around a red dwarf star the most abundant star type in the Milky Way galaxy red dwarfs a relatively small cool stars at best just half the mass of the Sun and just a tenth of its luminosity and what that means is that carbon monoxide could remain an ice at just being kilometers from the star. And that's roughly eighteen times closer than in our solar system and many red dwarfs are likely to have large planets orbiting the distances while it's impossible to determine the exact stop or solve came from the molecules that spewing out of provided enough gla searches to at least picture what that system may look like.

Sputnik's launch inspired satellite navigation systems in October 4, 1957

"Day was October fourth nineteen fifty seven the Soviet Union launched the first artificial earth satellite and scientists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology noticed that the frequency of its radio signal increased as it moved closer and decreased as it moved farther away this discovery led scientists to study how they could use satellite to locate receivers on earth and idea that marked the beginning of the development of satellite delight now the Gatien Systems and eventually GPS after sputnik launched two physicists at Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory Dr William Guyer and George Wife Balk taxed the satellite using the doppler effect. The doppler effect is the change in frequency or wavelength of wave as the waves source and it's observer move toward or away from each other a familiar illustration of the doppler effect is the change in pitch of sirens marrone's as an emergency vehicle approaches and passes by Chairman of the Applied Physics Laboratories Research Center Frank McClure suggested that if if the satellite position is known then a navigator on Earth could receive and process the satellite signal to determine their location this led to the the creation of the transit system the first satellite-based Geo Positioning System Transit was developed by the AP L. and the Defense Advanced Research Research Projects Agency and it was sponsored by the US Navy. Its main purpose was to provide location updates to the Navy's ballistic missile submarines leans but it was also used as a navigation system for surface ships and for survey transit was fully operational by nineteen sixty four in one thousand nine sixty seven transit became available for civilian use but scientists realized that a more accurate navigation system that could could operate all day every day would be better than transit transit had high accuracy compared to other navigation systems but it's still had limitations fans the technology and techniques developed for transit contributed to the introduction of the global positioning system or GPS so did the development element of other programs like commission and six twenty one B but by the early one thousand nine hundred seventy s you defense officials realized that it would be advantageous pages to have a single satellite-based navigation system with several military applications rather than having a bunch of expensive ones the first I operational.

This man made this is the first mission that we've ever sent to the sun. That's this close to it. That's actually taking data from it. And it's going to take a little while for this data to come back. It'll take months and months to sift through the data that this probe has sent back to earth. So we're not going to really get any juicy details from this thing for a little while. But until then this is going to continue orbiting and it'll continue doing its mission and sending data back to earth. And when I said it was going ridiculously fast for it's going. Two hundred thirteen ish thousand miles per hour. It's fast enough to fly around the earth. One hundred times in one hour. How far can you go into our in a car about sixty miles? So going around the earth one hundred times with an hour. It's going really really fast in the first solar encounter occurred last year in the probe is plan to steadily approached the sun until its final passing and twenty twenty four where we'll be only three point eight million miles from the star surface in once this whole mission is completed in once the Parker solar probe is done. They will plummet the probe into the sun. It'll burn up and it will have done mission. And we can all say goodbye, but we can get the data from it before it does that we can have some amazing data at our son about our closest star.

So it's not like it's not close to the sun. It's not really it's not studying it a close range. But that's as close as anything's ever come to the sun. This man made this is the first mission that we've ever sent to the sun. That's this close to it. That's actually taking data from it. And it's going to take a little while for this data to come back. It'll take months and months to sift through the data that this probe has sent back to earth. So we're not going to really get any juicy details from this thing for a little while. But until then this is going to continue orbiting and it'll continue doing its mission and sending data back to earth. And when I said it was going ridiculously fast for it's going. Two hundred thirteen ish thousand miles per hour. It's fast enough to fly around the earth. One hundred times in one hour. How far can you go into our in a car about sixty miles? So going around the earth one hundred times with an hour. It's going really really fast in the first solar encounter occurred last year in the probe is plan to steadily approached the sun until its final passing and twenty twenty four where we'll be only three point eight million miles from the star surface in once this whole mission is completed in once the Parker solar probe is done. They will plummet the probe into the sun. It'll burn up and it will have done mission. And we can all say goodbye, but we can get the data from it before it does that we can have some amazing data at our son about our closest star.

"This. All right. This is the moment foretold in countless sci-fi Bubis over the past decades. Nasa will soon launch test Ron of a planet protecting mission. It's called the double asteroid redirection test. They call it. Dart. The space agency will hurled a spacecraft into an asteroid at thirteen thousand five hundred miles an hour in an effort to divert. Its course. Yeah. The defense system trial will take place in the early twenty twenty year this according to some reports aimed at a non threatening asteroid at the moment. Right. Andy chang. He's with John Hopkins applied physics laboratory the code lead of the dark project. He says this experiment will show how they'll be able to save the planet quote by knocking the hazardous objects into a different flight path. Yeah, you know. I mean, a lot of lot of astronomers will say it's not a matter of if but it's a matter of win. So I think there's probably a very important experiment. Todd and Don show. Listen you thinking about starting a new business? Maybe you already have an existing business. You know, some of the hoops and hurdles that can get in your way of success, right?

"Now. Also in tech news. This is at the moment foretold, and countless SCI fi movies. Over decades. Nasa will soon launch a test run of a planet protecting mission. This is pretty interesting. It's called the double asteroid redirection test. Or dart the space agency will horrible a spacecraft into an asteroid at thirteen thousand five hundred miles per hour in an effort to divert. Its course defense system trial would take place Zurli as twenty twenty. According to some reports aimed at a non life threatening asteroid at this point. Andy ching. He's with the John Hopkins applied physics laboratory co lead of the dark project. He says this experiment will show how they will be able to save the planet quotes by knocking the hazardous object into a different flight path. Given it a big push this is science fiction stuff right there, man. That's right out of a movie science reality. Yeah. I mean, that's that's. That's a life or death stuff. But I love it jump in here at five one two eight three six zero five ninety stay with us. A local lawmaker is talking about a state income tax the fund public education right in her own words coming up the Todd and Don show. All right. The most trusted roofer in Austin, Texas, since nineteen seventy nine is Jay Khan, and they are still going strong there in south Austin. They have an office there there their firm where you can go see him there. You can sit down in the showroom. Take a look at all the latest and greatest in roofing materials, and they explain it. Well, because they know better than anybody else. Here's what I love about J conto. They offer a free inspection of your roof. Which is something you need to do routinely. Every couple of years. I highly recommend it. I've done that every couple of years and each time, they usually find just a minor thing might be a major thing. But they found some minor issues with mine that could have turned into big issue. Had they been left unaddressed, and they're able to take care of him. Right, then and there and the inspection costs you absolutely nothing. So what you do get though is a big bowl of j con peace of mind as a result..
