"I'm pretty sure that's why you would notice because your unconscious and full circle bring yourself out of it and just a point worth pointing out high poxy Is the name of dr. Healy ios sexy female hench woman. Good almost goblets. Hello hi my name is. James jarred me. Have you met my assistant books here okay. That's great listen. I i watched the rest of the series and just compile a bunch of questions a for both of you because obviously dana. You're now ours residue away to die expert. That so dana. Obviously people should be listening to your podcast. Dana gould. Our is there something else you want to tell people about where they can find. The dana gould is my podcast and dana. Gould dot com. If you wanna see me Once comedy clubs reopen. I'll probably still be going out there. I have a film coming out soon with called joyride with a comedian bobcat goldthwait. It's sort of a performance film documentary of the two of us google. Okay you know. When that's coming out. I can keep law. Tober tober excellent okay. The spookiest time to release a movie. It's very scary. If you're scared of comedy it's an interesting we did. We did a tour just before we went to do it. I'll tell you this very brief. We went to. We toured together and we went on stage together. But we each performed our own acts like we we know each other's repertoire and we would talk and then i would say we get to a subject. Rubab had peace and he would literally step forward and do it. And then and then i would step forward and go back so we did this for a while and a lot of fun. The audience is really liked it so we went to film it as a special and as we were literally pulling into the theater film the special we t-boned ended up in the hospital and get couldn't film the special So then we yeah. We literally broke our ribs on each other. Which is the the origin story of a superhero because the tour was called the show with two heads and it was literally as if we were trying to merge into one super-committee and And then we ended up we recovered. Yeah we recovered from that and then went out and did it on tour and It was literally right before the pandemic we did it in february of twenty twenty and That was So it's coming out in the interesting thing is bob as one of my best friends and we used to hate each other. So it's a very interesting story this. There's a lotta yeah bromance. There's a lot of stuff of us in the car talking about how we used to not like each. I'm in summation of that. Why did you guys hate each other. Gosh i'm sorry to bore you with bob. Baba's comedian lived. Baba's comedian lived in boston and he had these roommates tom. Kenny who is the voice of now famous as the voice of spongebob. Squarepants dan spencer our other friend and you know they all the same kind of movies this all punk and you know plan nine from outer space and we all like the same kind of dorky. Stop well. Bob moved to san francisco and i moved to boston and ended up taking his. I was sort of like the second. Darren on bewitched lived there. I i like the same music. I like the same stuff. And then when bob came back it's was like who's this guy you know. I was like the second husband and so we just innately we were. We were too similar to be friends and then literally ten or twelve years later. We were both performing on a show and literally after this show. We just gotta look each other who this is stupid. We should be friends that we hate each other for being similar in liking. All the same shit really true and then we became but it was one of those things like we then. We were really good that we were like really so. It's a really. It's a very very interesting story and you know it's it's worse things you can do with an hour and a half. Yeah definitely joy reid right. That's what it's called joy reid. Yeah okay we're gonna look out for that. If you get a chance to to see danai highly recommended he is the best or the cooties.

"Pass out so the the highest point that a helium balloon can get to and this is nothing else goes wrong. Doesn't hit anything win. Can be a factor. If nothing goes wrong i think. The highest in go is Thirty two kilometers because that is Where the atmosphere that. That's the point at which the atmosphere surrounding the balloon is the same way to helium the kegs. The same time in a balloon pops. So that's like line somewhere around thirty two kilometers which is was twenty miles twenty miles to eventually in in the one percent chance that nothing else happened. Then you go up to thirty two kilometers your unconscious and then all the balloons pop and you drop. I just wanna know how it is. That's how it ends. That's it still an achievement. I gotta say that's thirty. That's high up. There are spreading is pretty high. I mean again. It's that's that's what nothing else taken into effect again. I think given so if you if you meet geeking off one minute but few imagine all those balloons heights would share with a person in it. I think that's just the strain alone from the string pulling one. That balloon will make it pop way earlier than that. Thirty two kilometers that i mentioned so You probably get up there one or two pop and then you'd start to come back. Download slowly. yeah. You wouldn't get to experience. Got and hopefully someone's filming. I guess i'm surprised. I'm genuinely surprised. No one has tried to kill. James bond that way to my balloons missed up on the most boring action sequences and james bond slowly slowly. I'm dr healy. Oh charlie have to have a lame name is just like the first thing they thought of and it goes in the movie. Okay okay so you reminded me they. They mentioned this thing. Called the armstrong line. I don't know if that's what a similar to this thirty two kilometers point or not but they mentioned that there's like extreme pressure up there and that your saliva boils at this point goal is to get to the base. Sixty three thousand feet. It's called the armstrong line or the armstrong limit. That's the point at which they're so little pressure holding your body together. It's lethal the idea. Around is the atmospheric pressure is approximately six point. Three kill pasco's and that is the boiling point. That is where the boiling point of water equals the normal human body temperature which is usually like seven degrees celsius and as we know oh. Humans are roughly sixty percent water. So you're boiling. You're you're boiling up there And that's that's all based on Pressure so hold on a second. When you're telling me when we get to sixty thousand feet in the air all the water in our body boils yes no what soak water boils and you just happen to be majority water so yes kids. Frigging we boil. So yeah you blue man. That's i. I don't know i don't know if it's instant i don't know if it's like a slow boil like a slow rolling boy like i'm about to make pasta or if it's like an instant life flash boiler i don't i don't know which boil it is but i know i know you start boiling and i mean how do we avoid. Because i mean if if we're going to space or whatnot how do you avoid the boyle sidestep that otherwise you don't go basically that'll okay and not your tj maxx spacesuit. Yeah you back to the pressure. Cooker arose amazon's pressure cookers. So yeah if. I knew that that was the risk. I guess i'd like a really expensive properly tested suit as well and i also wanted to mention hypotheses you using these suits. Dangers are real at twenty five thousand feet. If i found that my suits were failing first off there's not enough oxygen to breathe so you become hypothesis. They mentioned this when he's up in that plane to that like it's and this sounds like a james bond death actually dana. Where like it's painless. And the victim is completely unaware that they're getting hypoxia. Well supposedly when you. I don't i don't really like travel east. Didn't want this to be the expert. Be thought of as the guy that knows of cool ways to die but supposedly when you die of hypothermia you get wonderfully warm. I and then and then you just like your counter intuitive your brain just like freaking out or why does that happen kenny. Kenny knows i. Don't i think it's i think it's that all the they got all the blood. Re- retreat from your extremities. Oh so you all around your heart feel real warm. Yeah you're right. He's trying everything it can do. Yeah yeah that sounds. I think from the from the perspective of hypoxia. You are because because when you're selling your brain starts dot or the start. Yeah when you lose oxygen in your brain stale started back. I think it takes On the low end like thirty seconds on the high end a minute and a half to lose consciousness and then will you lose consciousness to just slowly going further and further into brain death Where on average. I think i think the longest like ten minutes. And then you're absolutely brain-dead And in the low end again that spot minutes so again you've got like a three minute margin there to deliver and you probably don't you notice because your unconscious and i'm pretty. I'm pretty sure that's why you would notice because your unconscious and full circle bring yourself out of it and just a point worth.

"Late for a movie and that's why the guy had to go and instead of scratching the launch. He just went. We're gonna we're gonna do what we're going to go ahead and do it. That was his mistake. Making an emotional decision in the midst of a of a technical conundrum and the The flip side of that is in against The official or professional route doing it. If you're person's not there. You're not doing your planning so far in advance that you have a person there and even if that person gets hit by a bus you have a second day person that is there. So typically only at scrubs launches are mechanical mechanical concerns readings. That a wrong weather is big. So if you missed like your your time pocket where you're trying to the orbit But we've got redundancies and stuff like that built-in so another route of why am only going to space the professional route or the traditional route. That's what i called earlier traditional route. All right we're gonna take a quick break and we'll be right back. The break is over here. We go back to the show about science. I was wondering throughout a lot of this. The legality of it because everything seemed like it should be legal in this show. I did not understand how. I don't even get how you make propellant like that. I don't. I don't know the ins and outs of it. I don't know what's involved so you know. Maybe you can tell me that as well but are are we allowed as americans to make huge rockets whether their steam powered or propellant powered or whatever. I'm so that that's a good question. I will say at specifically do not specifically for the us If you united states citizens citizen no matter where you are in the world you need permission to launch a rocket This is a part of the. What's it called the commercial space launch. Act a commercial space launch act which is from the nineteen eighty s. nineteen in nineteen eighty eighties. I want to say. Nineteen nineties But basically the point is you need federal permission to launch a rocket from the united states citizen really anywhere in the world And that's that's based on faa as well as fcc which is a federal communication commission and federal aviation administration. So you need you need. You need permission from both of them. You don't only need permission to launch rockets. If you're going high enough you also need permission to enter with re entry vehicle. And if you're going to like i s or your docking to something you also need permission to operate a space port. So there's a lot of permissions that you need in order to do this And one of the biggest things and again if you're not even talking about rockets to to go up and visit. Et's planet if you're just talking about a rocket like in your backyard that you just want to launch like a model rocket that's what our mission earlier was the national rockets here. I forgot national national association rockets air like two categories model rockets and high power rockets. Model rockets are lot. more is a lot less reserve. And then you high rock is going to be anything that has a liftoff massive. Like one hundred and fifty grand or something like that Some something like that and and with those restrictions like i said you have to get those permissions you have to like the loss. I can't be near like highways or buildings There's a lot more stringency around actually putting people in these rockets. I don't even think. Mtr or in a p. a. r. covers that So there's a lot of legalities around it. I won't really get too much into it but From a legal point of view. There's a lot of hoops to jump through and finally finally there also a thank similar to when you fly around for example. There's no fly zones for drones says every with rockets there's a certain level of sensitivity. That i can't get into the podcast that comes with trying to launch a rocket because it gets into the government being concerned about the reason that you're launching this rocket in terms of safety for individuals and stuff like that so that that's another concern so this the whole show the whole show. I was thinking what's happened again. And yeah i mean a great individuals. But i question you. It's interesting the conversation. I had this morning before we spoke was about the city of los angeles and and what i can only describe as an orgasm of impracticality is full steam ahead on flying cars again as part of operation. What could go wrong. Because if if the internet has taught us anything. It's that when people are presented with a new technology they always behave excessively responsibly and The idea of it's. I'm not worried the cars but the drivers of the cars. There's your there's the issue And there really has to be a policing of amateur pilots. Because it's because it's not that things will go wrong. It's that when when things go wrong. It's ninety nine percent of the time catastrophic as all like if you're driving in the car and blow a tire you hit a tree. Yeah it's bad. Odds are you're not gonna die but you get off the ground dover makes it. Yeah it's it's over. Wow i'm sure there have been people who have tied themselves to a lawn chair and just put a bunch of helium balloons on the lawn chair and tried to get up. And how did you with a bb gun to come down. I'm sure there that's happened. I don't i don't know of any specific examples of that. But i'm sure i'm sure people have done it because you know you think about was. Is that a pixar movie up as pigs fly surely early so i'm sure i'm sure some once thought to do it. But what would happen if you did do that. And you didn't have a bb gun. Die like yeah. We're like with the balloons. Eventually you'd go up and pass out and wake yourself up right now you you go up and pass out so the the highest point that a helium balloon can get to and this is nothing else goes wrong. Doesn't hit anything win. Can be a factor..

"Plus the break is over here. We go back. Yeah i wanted to ask about the balloons. And i think we have a clip as well because there's a guy with a funny name waldo. Who is mad mike partner. That explains the plan which originally was to attach him to a balloon right out of the gate waldo and mad. Mike waldo is one of my favorite characters in this and he's casually explaining in the living room to say. Hey we're gonna hook you up to a balloon with four individual rocket engines on it and this is the plan we're gonna carry you twenty four to twenty six miles in the air and that's gonna be it. I was like this guy's a genius right right out the gate. This is the guy and i was like. This is to be interesting. Internet at the rocket approaches that of the balloon parts. Was this the one where he wasn't even in the rocket where he was just hanging off the balloon on the balloon and i was like good. Good plan this is i. I really was interested to see how that was going to work. Honestly yeah that was operation. What could go wrong. Here's how we're gonna get mike. Mike is going to be hanging underneath this thing. And it's going to be going up. The balloon will pull them up. Twenty four twenty six miles and then these four rocket engines fires or just under two minutes and then he'll drop back through. The atmosphere is so simple fail. It's so simple. It can't fail. That was my face looking. It doesn't seem simple. And i mean i guess if you were gonna pull this off how would it work like. Explain to me what he was thinking here. I can't do that but i will explain to play. I think is going on. So if you if if you're looking at the cliff you see mike attached to What looks to balloon this this huge rod in the middle and then four inches around the top. I'm assuming what's in the rod is propellant for the for the actual Rockets which basically means that he's on a balloon strapped to a bomb floating up in the air. Which is basically what it boils down to. And and so and it's going to get very hot where he is so i'm thinking i'm thinking that's it and then based on how high he goes I guess the the concept of Re entry comes into play based on how high you are. How much accelerate because you know at at a certain rate. I mean. everyone's seen everyone sees movies. Where you go real high up and you lose consciousness as you're coming back down. That actually could happen. If your suit is not pressurized right in you don't pay seattle so i think I is it could work. That was my understanding of it. Win waldo presented again. I was like that could probably work. But again my opinion but i think to work the very similar story to this episode specifically with mike is the evil knievel's preparation for jumping the snake river canyon on a rocket sled. Which which would you see the documentary about forget the name of it but they factored in the fact that at one point evil knievel was going to lose consciousness. There was like factored into the jump and evil. Knievel seem to think that he could pull himself out of consciousness today. Goes you're gonna lose consciousness but you need to be able to activate the parachute all right. Well come out of it before. I need to do that. Okay good sort of fundamentally at misunderstanding. That concept of unconsciousness. Yeah that doesn't seem like a very good plan at all evil. Can i talk to the real evil. Please seems extraordinarily dangerous. And there's no way to just come out of consciousness whenever you please from what i understand. Tell that to evil can evil. My friend i would bring him. This brings up a lot of stuff. I mean they also like you said. They switched to doing a steam rocket launch. Which very. Sadly i believe was the thing that ended up killing mad. Mike on february twenty-second twenty twenty. His parachute. I read like became detached from the rocket so. I don't know if you know about that kenny. Exactly what went wrong there. I just read about it briefly this morning. That was all part of the plan. It's so simple. That can't fail mexican. they get killed then the rocket they factored it in. I don't really know what happened In in his stunt in early twenty twenty From the idea from the perspective of a Esteem rocket dealing with I guess i guess how a steam walk. It works now. This rocket works is got a water tank a full tank with water when the water gets hot. It developed pressure inside the tank. There's a chef that goes through the center of the tank inside that chaff. There's a plug. When mike pulls the plug a hot water goes through the nozzle and the superheated water turns into steam and that develops a trust that pushes a rocket. So what you've got is basically got a pressurized water tank and you pull the plug on this thing. And basically what i mean by pulling the plug is allow the water which is now hot and pressurized steam is escapes and pushes the rocket in the opposite direction. That the Hot hot air is flowing from From in this is through the real magic happens. In a nozzle it's called the devil. Divall or converging non converging nozzle was basically means. That hot gas enters the nozzle. It looks like an hourglass. Imagine hourglass when it's hot the hot gas enters at subsonic speeds flows through the bottleneck of the hourglass shape and at it builds up it builds up speed and exit at supersonic speeds which allows thrust for the rock and that's the basic concept of steam same rocket shocking to me shocking to me steam can power some things so heavy with a person inside. I was stunned by that. That that like barely made sense to my fairy. Stupid and the the launch site is to protect the people near the launch site. It is a protected by what what was later. Determined to be the world's largest tea cosy crocheted it was twenty miles in diameter. What happened to the late. Great mike hughes was the rocket fired. The parachute deployed prematurely. So although the rocket was still firing it was firing into the parachute which was creating excessive drag the church it started which affected the rocket's trajectory move. Mike ejected but from the result of his objection. Either the his parachute failed or he didn't have a parachute which would not like they. They knew he would jacked. They didn't think about the next thing he would need after he ejected. It's one or the other but ironically it was the effects of gravity. Well i mean it goes back to exactly what you were saying at the beginning kenny. Which is that. That's one of the main dangers. Here is is losing your life but you know so. I i guess the the lesson here is. Don't try to build rockets at home any kind of rocket. that's why. I actually liked kawhi in this episode. Because he never put a human being at risk unless you were standing in a field on a rocket landed on you but which has happened We've all seen the road runner. But reggie the roadrunner tragedy tragedy event of it. It's the reason they can't. He doesn't work for acme but guy commits the kyw commits the sin of at one point. The the frustrations mount any makes an emotional decision where they have a problem with a piece of mechanics. The person responsible for fixing it has to leave because it's his anniversary that's actually happened on the moon shot as well. People were late for a movie and that's why the guy had to go and instead of scratching the launch. He just went. We're gonna we're gonna do what we're going to go ahead and do it..

"Cameron is wearing the suit in the wicker basket of a hot air balloon. So the one thing that he needed on top of the suit was an old timey top hat because he had a he really. There's a fini's fog aspect to cameron testing. I can think of nothing more terrifying than being in the worker basket of a hot air balloon. I'm not afraid of heights in the sense of being on an airplane or anything like that but when it just open. Tell me if. I'm if you've ever had this i was skiing and was an old time ski lift. It didn't have a safety bar. And i'm like thirty feet above the ground later. I'm not comfortable with this. But i'll do it. It goes over a ridge and suddenly. I'm a hundred and twenty feet off the ground on a bench bench with nothing. I was not afraid. I was going to fall. Wow i was afraid i was going to jump and this could be an irish thing. You know it could be a rough time in your life that would know but this is interesting when you're scientists your when i tell this story regular people they look at me the way. You're looking at me now. When i tell the story to comedians they go. Yeah exactly exactly. Yeah it's just like. I don't want to end everything now but in a in a but i don't know when this opportunity is going to present itself again. I could have a bad week next month. You know. I had the opportunity. And i didn't take that's what they promote it. That ski lodge. That's when you go to thirty rock and new york and you're up in the you know the twenty eighth floor. The windows just open. It just keeps looking at like all right. We're going to take a quick break and we'll be right back.

"Cook rice in it. Looked like if you go out and buy a bunch of pressure cookers. The fbi starts to monitor your behavior. Kind of looked like this guy was like it. At a tj maximus when he was picking up these rights as holds on the show to rice cookers on the shelf. So so how did you make the seal. So nassar's way of making a sale is obviously a lot more robust right. So actually the designed the original suitors back in the sixties. But but we're talking advanced sue nowadays. You know we've got cad models based like a three d that you've been replicated things like that We've got three d. printing which i don't think helmets are three d. printed but there's an option to do that as well And then with necessarily because you have a a a nice sized budget you're able to actually custom fabricate these individual sales and things like that So was a point. Where cameron even said. Hey my suit. Is this much asset seat. Is this much. I think the margin is incredibly different. Because you've got rice cookers in there you know they're developing there's different types of material on top of that this just numerous amounts of test. You have to do the amount of people that are involved in these tests that help drive that price point up so gamay suit work to got the right values But but you know. Nasa is not going to put the lives of any of their astronauts in a suit that Cost that much. I'd say just because the amount of testing that it will have to go through to qualify. That difference was robust Cameron sued cost ten thousand dollars and neces- sued caused twelve million dollars. So yeah quite the stark difference and you know what they say the cheap pay twice ya one more thing to bring about the is that i didn't. I don't even know if if they get into this. But the thickness of the that you have to deal with. In terms of micro impacts against his face like anything just randomly fleeing into your student pop in a hole in it which is catastrophic. I don't know what testing he was doing specifically for the. I'm sure there is testing. He can do for that. But that's another thing that they really consider when developing he space seats. I think he got a paintball gun from tj maxx. And he that there's also the important thing to talk what is it..

"Who's building his own spacesuit that was his whole yep longline line so but in in every case i felt like these are all extremely dangerous endeavors. So did anything stick out to you kenny. As like the. Here's the reason why this is you know born to fail. I will say the safest person out of all of them was camera. Just because you know he wasn't putting together an explosive in launch himself in you know he was he was he was tested. He was testing your suits by the same time even when he tested a susie heck the necessary person there to help if suffering dig overall. The dangers involved One of the first is obviously loss of life You can go. You can go broke doing that. You can during this. Because of the amount of money it costs to build something like that or the systems If you're not careful with the way that you launched this there can be a loss of life to other. You know just people that are watching a standby. The have no idea what's happening in their certain regulations around stuff like this specifically for in our national association of rocketeers. I think They have different They have different Categories so they have like a modeling rocket category and they have a high rock category and the different regulations that they worked with the faa and fcc to make sure that things don't go wrong but there's a number of neighbors involved and i wouldn't do it so with the suit. What how. how does nasa. Test the suit like i was wondering because his his testing seems somewhat legitimate. But then i was thinking there must be rounds and rounds of different types of tests for these suits right and yeah and how do you make the seal Yeah his courteous to like a pressure cooker it seems he said that he liked. Cut the bottom off of a pressure cooker. And that's how we made this helmet. Seal is and i found these old pressure cookers. They'll fifteen twenty pounds of pressure. Are pressure is on the order of three to five pounds of pressure. But i do is like cut off the bottom of the pot which makes the neck ring and i cut the center of the lid out and then melt the helmet on top of that and you'd slide to the side it would lock on and it was gas type so now i'm on ebay. Picking up as many vintage pre nineteen seventies pressure cooker. I can look good enough to.

"Like the flat earth thing i consider myself a cruiser and i question everything and and the reason i know this is because my oldest daughter who is studying to be scientist. She's at cal. Berkeley and in this high end says she really wanted to go to the flatter convention in denver. Colorado this before the pandemic and and i said why do you wanna go to the flatter convention because we have to fly there and the minute we take off where we know it's gonna be baloney. She said was the greatest. She goes to see how crazy they are and get some flat earth merch. Some flatters don't you can't go wrong with it. You know it is. A catchy story writes a catchy headline for him to say. I'm going to go up to prove that the earth is flat. I i can see how that would make flat or authors region to their wallet. But i mean kenny. Have you like combated this in real time. Have you spoken with people who believe this. I mean how do you even debate that. So funny enough. I experienced this before specifically dealing with flat authors. I got the. I gotta be honest. Ethan i just do not care in terms of like when you know they're combat me going back and forth about just like hey you you believe what you believe. I don't care but a a funny. Quick funding store is. I was actually out to eat one. Time in dc on there was a bunch of folks from nasa but actually one of them is in astronaut in astronaut. Right so we're sitting there. Were having dinner. The waiter comes over says. Hey one of my colleagues here. Another way is a flatter. Can you please convince him. He's not flat and so they bring this may bring this guy over in and he's like no the earth is definitely flat starts santa's points without knowing who she is and she takes his picture out of her bag. It's her and her astronaut suit to like signs. It hands it to them. Like explains why the earth is not flat because like i've seen it. Xyz yada yada one of the biggest one of the strongest strongest points. I like to point out Four flat earthers are How you can see different from different latitudes and if you think of the earth is flat plane you should be able to see the same stars no matter where you are because you're looking at a certain direction but based on your since you're able to see different things as in the big dipper. The little dipper The bright orange giant different stars like that If you at north pole you see different stars than you would at south pole based on lead to So again. I don't like to really get into with them. I just kinda nod my head and say that's and and i just let it go when you prove that they're wrong. That just proves that they're right right. Here's like i have a follow up conversation about it. Here's my email. I don't think she's gonna follow up with you like you know if i say the sky is blue and you say the sky is green. That's not a debate. I don't need to email you your wrong. Especially the first person is an astronaut. Who has yeah. Wow that's wild. I'm okay so obviously my my big question here watching this show is. What are the dangers involved with doing this right because it seems like in each of them we. We're following three different stores in case you haven't seen this show so there's this guy we were talking about mad. Mike was a stunt man. A guy named kai. Who i think's seemed like the most legit i guess he had like a little team and they each had their own expertise and then a guy named cameron who is a teacher..

"You can't see the podcast but see back in time Which is going to allow us to observe stars in their initial Burke during the big bang and things of that nature What makes this satellite extremely cool. Outside of that time telescope type of thing is that is the size of a tennis court when a fully experience. It's called somewhere upwards of thirteen billion dollars and It was one of the coolest part of worked on. But it's like a transference base. Goes up there deploys and does all kinds of cool science stuff and i it was. It was really excited to be apart commission. Yeah that is absolutely wild now in this. Show that we're talking about homemade astronauts. It seems like everybody on. This show is just obsessed with going to space and maybe that a common thing for people. I don't wanna go to space. I feel like it seems really dangerous and a whole to do okay. But you're you're a nasa guy. So i have to ask you. If you share that obsession do you. Are you itching to leave earth. I'm interested in going to space but not doing it myself. If that makes sense it'd be cool. Even get into the context of the show. We watched i have no interest in doing it myself. Okay so you wanna go the the professional route. You wanna go with a team of experts. Let's call it the old school way. Did you get into your area of study did you get into it through Like star trek and star wars and stuff as a kid and then you went into the sciences or did you get into it from from being just really super smart like math and science and went into a discipline. That way man. it's. It's it's honestly. Because i wasn't really smart when i was younger. I'm not really smart. But but my dad. My dad's engineer And and i saw a lot of the stuff that he got into a lot stuff. He did I was able to emulate kind of his path. And i developed a passion for it and and it's a longer story but Yeah that's that's how i got into it. Still love star wasn't star. Trek actually met some some actresses from star trek so it was good to be in dispute manager. So were you like. I saw a teeshirt yesterday. That i wanted to buy actually. And it's apparently the new motto of nasa the nasa symbol and then below it. Their new catchphrase. Let's get the hell out of here. That's so good. That nasa evil that they also because i just bought a poster that i think nasa made for mars and it's like tourism poster. We're like see all the historic sites of mars. I thought that was a really cool marketing. Move as well. Yeah they got a whole series of the like ten of them that they did for for marcin exploration but yeah I have a. I have a patch of Ansa which was when they when they did planet of the apes. They didn't get permission to use nasa. So it's an answer but otherwise it's exactly the same and i have. I have a jacket and people are like misprint. Yeah exactly kenny. Why didn't you let planet of the apes us nasa. What's what's what's come on. What's your before my time. That was before my time where the ship doesn't make inelegant landing so maybe reflected poorly on the organization. Yeah that's true. If it was a different story about like a yeah elegant landing then maybe that would have put their name behind it. I totally agree and relate. I with not wanting to go yourself after watching this show. I've only seen episode. Not sure about you too but number one. I really enjoyed the show. I had no clue that people were doing this. Had you heard about this dana. I'd heard about mike hughes. But and i heard about my cues through the his. I heard on the news. A story about a guy that was a flatter wanted to go to space to prove the earth was flat. Mike has lot strange theories..

Dana gould our earlier today. Oh and before we get started. I didn't want to bother you about it. Then i barely wanna bother you about it now because bothering you seems awful but since i have you here i have to ask you what it was like to work on a show. That meant a lot to me. When i was growing up the ben stiller. Show everybody that. Worked on the ben stiller. Show bob odenkirk. Jimmy garoppolo david. Cross ben stiller myself. We all were just friends and we all hung out together and then ben got a show so we just kind of hung out in the office. It was it was it was just an extension of our social life at the time so it was actually one of the most organic work experiences i ever had. It was just like instead of going to janin's house. We went to hollywood center studios but pretty much. Everything else was the same and we. We would see. George burns on the way into work. Because george burns had an office he would come in in the morning full to pay full suit. Come in Have breakfast read the paper go home. Wow that's awesome. I mean definitely comes through. It seems like a really organic natural. It just seems like a bunch of people having fun with each other and we're all still friends. Oh and they happy ending well great. I'm super excited to talk to you today. Dana i'm so glad that you're here and i feel the same way about our second guest. He is a senior satellite engineer at nasa who was named one of forbes thirty under thirty. Welcome to the show kenneth harris i don. I'm happy to be today. Unfortunately ethan you and i do not have history is first time. Yeah i know it is unfortunate. I hate that but no is is a pleasant today. Yeah it's a pleasure to be speaking with you Kenny as you request to be called and that makes it feel like we're closer and have a history that i'm calling kenny. Already so professional. Yeah exactly which is totally not you. So you've worked on mind-bending projects like the s g. pm and the james webb telescope. So the first question that came to my mind when doing research on you is. Do you sleep or do you just nap. You know what's even worse than all that. I also have basically a brand new baby at home. He's ten months. So i know i really don't sleep. I've perfected the map Something i'll get into later. The nasa nap appreciably trademark. But it's just it's just a really quick twenty minute nap or something like that. The astronauts us when they actually own. I assess so i just that i just net throughout the day win win win. Possible rea- sleep. Sleep is foreign to me. That's really impressive. And we got to talk with the james webb for a second i. I saw the the ted ex talk that you gave and you mentioned it briefly but but can you explain to us like what makes james webb so awesome so real quick. Thirty second pitch is that it's the follow up to the hubble space telescope which is really famous from a nasa point of view And the idea behind this telescope is to quote unquote air quotes..
