"Basically their design consultant and technical advisor make sure they understand the shuttle, the realities of working in his space suit, so you go through that continuous tumbler of different jobs at technical assignment, is basically a wading pool for getting plucked out input by name onto a particular flight, and when that happens, whole new syllabus starts that begins with your basic knowledge of the fundamentals, have house systems work, and over twelve at least twelve months bands sometimes longer your training sessions. Little bits of bookwork, but mainly simulation training sessions deepen and sharpen your knowledge from the general state of the electrical system works like this to the particulars that are exact to your mission on your flight.

I had spent my third year of University on an exchange program in Bergen Norway. Until I. Really had had the geology of the Atlantic's from open up in front of me. Plate tectonics was just really getting underway and getting established as a working model at that time, and it was all happening. Right off my doorstep from Bergen. Norway I. Wanted to do the geology geophysics of the oceans, and I was more intrigued by the Mid Ocean Ridge isn in the Atlantic and the way the continents continental margins there so. I was inclined towards Atlantic Ocean stuff and I had graduate school offers on both the West Coast and the east coast, but Dalhousie had a really good group of researchers were should mention. It's in Nova. Scotia's Halifax Nova Scotia really good set of researchers in the very good collaboration with the Bedford Institute of Oceanography. That was at the time, Canada's only ocean graphic institution. And I'd read number of the papers that these people were putting out. Their work seem really interesting. One of my professors at Santa Cruz new some of them and spoke well of them seemed more interesting place to live Grad schools, kind of an experiment and living both more for forty five years, and maybe move on from. There may be end up saying so it just Nova Scotia was intriguing. The Atlantic was intriguing. The group was intriguing and. And then the icing on the cake was the professor who was to bring me into his lab.

"While I might not be saying it in this segment, because this podcast isn't rated explicit, it turns out that you might have a really legitimate excuse to use the F. Word. According to a new study from the Journal, Frontiers in psychology, saying the F. Word might increase your pain threshold. Quoting ars technica the technical term is the HYPO elegies of swearing best illustrated by a two thousand nine study neuro report by researchers at Keele University in the UK Co author Richard Stevens psychologist at Kiel, became interested in studying the topic after noting his wife's unsavory language while giving birth and wondered if profanity really could help alleviate pain. Swearing is such a common response to pain. There has to be an underlying reason why we do it Stevens. Told Scientific American at the time and quotes. In that original two thousand nine study, Stevens, and his team had sixty seven student participants put their hands in buckets of ice cold water. They were then told to either swear repeatedly using whichever swear word they preferred. To chant a neutral word. When they swore the participants reported feeling less pain than when they didn't, and they were also able to withstand the ice cold water for an average of forty seconds longer. Quoting ars Technica, we have quite good data on the mechanism. Being that swearing brings out in emotional response in the speaker, which activates the autonomic nervous system or acute structure. Response Stephen told ours. It's linked to fight or flight in other words, swearing in response to pain can activate the middle which can trigger that fight or flight response, producing a surge of adrenaline and quote. Stevens did a follow up study in two thousand eleven that produced two main findings I, the pain relief effect was stronger for people who don't typically swear all that much and second. The participants heart rates rose when they swore quoting Stevens so we think the mechanism is stress. Induced is the emotional content of the swearing that people are accessing when they swear in pain and quote. Other researchers have suggested it could be that the act of swearing is a distraction. As the debate continues Stevenson. His team embarked on yet another study, the one just recently published. For this one that came up with alternative words for participants to use in place of swear words. One fout, which was chosen to have a similar emotional impact to some swear words, and also the word twister pipe, which was meant to be distracting through its humor. The used the ice bucket method again this time having participants used the F word, the foul, an twist pipe words, and then a neutral word, the only one that had any effect on pain outcomes the F. Word. As in the two thousand nine study increase the pain threshold with precipitates waiting significantly longer before indicating they felt pain when they were saying the F. Word versus the other words of this most recent study Stevens said quote. There's no suggestion from these data that distraction, or how the word sounds is a reason why swearing help people cope with pain. It seems like it's the meaning of the word. Probably the way we learned the word growing up and the associations between these words and stress or emotion. That's probably what underlies the power of swearing and quotes. Going forward his team's going to investigate distribution as a possible explanation, this edition, meaning a lack of restraints, leading to impulsiveness, poor risk assessment or the breaking of social conventions. Quoting ars, Technica, there are a handful of scientific papers investigating whether dissonant Bishen could improve performance, particularly a two thousand fourteen paper that found that tennis players who grunted while serving the ball produced faster swerves than those who didn't grunt Stevens AOL's current research will build on that as well as their own two thousand eighteen papers, showing that swearing can improve strength. I think there may be a cognitive explanation that swearing able to produce distribution. He said in situations dissonant mission. Let's go for it that little bit more and not hold back and quotes. So if you stub your toe later today, let the bombs roar and don't feel bad about it. Science has your back. This weekend Kathy Sullivan a former NASA astronaut, who was the first American woman to walk in space on the sixth flight of the Challenger Space Shuttle also became the first woman to reach the Earth's deepest points. She is now the first human to go to both space and full ocean depth. Quoting seen it on Sunday. Former NASA astronaut Kathy Sullivan reached the bottom of the challenger deep, almost six point, nine miles, or eleven, thousand meters below the surface of the Pacific. Ocean, according to EOC expeditions. Challenger deep is considered the deepest point in the earth's oceans and resides within the Marianna trench, a mighty sickle shaped depression line about eleven hundred miles east of the Philippines. The pressure at the bottom is over one thousand times. The pressure at sea level civil was accompanied by Viktor, Visco Vo in entrepreneur and deep sea explorer in the deep sea submersible, limiting factor in total. The expedition lasted just under four hours and quotes. When Sullivan visco returned from the expedition. They made a call to the International. Space Station to speak with the NASA. Astronauts on board, including those who had just recently arrived via space XS Crew Dragon. Solon said in a statement quote as a hybrid oceanographer and astronaut.

That's why you're gonNA capture right exactly and everybody's got a story yeah and they they span this is not just Apollo history right. They span through the is it. The agency's history is at jumped bay centers history well. We actually do a lot of different oral history projects so interesting that you mentioned that we do our J._C.. Oral History Project and it does span from the Space Task Group Days Through International Actual Space Station or Ryan tried to capture all of that history and everything in between but we do oral histories for NASA headquarters so we do interviews with administrators or senator directors people that are headquarters office wants us to talk to and then we've done different projects over the years that we've received funding for like for instance when the shuttle was retiring we did a big project to capture the history of spatial from development through retirement which was a huge effort can. Can you imagine you know forty years of history in oral histories yeah yeah thirty years of shuttle but you're talking about development stage right yeah. There's a lot of years there. There's a lot going on so we've got that <hes> we've captured some history of Aviatronics <hes> let's see we've captured a lot women's history with her stories project so there's there's quite a bit out there. IF PEOPLE WANNA go out to the J._C. History Portal and look at oral histories <hes> there's just so much material out there so such a wealth of material from these people that we've interviewed very exciting hiding and today we're going to be focusing on mainly the time around Apollo <hes> and I think when when we were going through these stories together I think you kicked off in such a nice way because the first thing we're actually gonNA talk about is the space shuttle although which a lot of people don't even recognize was a thing around the time of Apollo eleven so this one was with <hes> Jerry Ross and Kathy Sullivan Yes oh Jerry Ross. He's he's <hes> very well known for the the number of <hes> spaceflights flights that he flew on he's actually the record holder of seven spaceflights along with Franklin chang-diaz and Kathy Sullivan was one of the first six women astronaut selected nineteen seventy eight and she's the first American woman to do a space walk. So you know very well known folks. I pick these stories because I just thought they were interesting. I thought it was important to highlight the fact that there were people who are going to be working in the program later in life who were witnessing and remember these shared these memories with us so Jerry Ross he remembers he was in in college at that point <hes> since fourth grade he wanted to be an engineer and go to purdue and so this was summer break and he was working for U._S.. Steel and he remembers just sitting on his couch with his fiancee out his lab. Just waiting eating for that I space walk to happen on the moon and being very excited about it. He also remembers his younger sister taking snapshots of the television and you know it was pretty grainy kind of hard to see and he kept telling her you know those shots aren't gonNA turn turn out but they ended up turning out <hes> but he was just you know mesmerized. He said by the whole mission itself his fiancee found him just sort of sitting there watching you know foot endless footage of mission control and what was happening and then Kathy the Sullivan I think is sort of interesting because she really didn't intend initially to study science or you know work for NASA. She wasn't going to be an engineer..
