SPACE FARCE

"Days ago. We observed the thirty fifth anniversary of the space shuttle. Challenger's bush in the killed seven brave astronauts and a chance to actually get into that. I just thought it kind of bring the room down and it would it. Would basically a habit gets reflect back on the failure that the shuttle program eventually became. I'm man i'm and it's arguable. That the shuttle missions were a failure but it just Conversations before with people who said it's the equivalent of taking a bus out of the garage. Hang around the earth a couple times. That's all it was but you know it was interesting. At least the space program had something going on at the time. And i thought it would. I even met a shuttle astronaut Good guy Just that by the time We had a conversation on a cable channel about moon landing in. I didn't like each other afterwards. And i i didn't. I didn't wanna cause trouble with him. In fact he was just an amazing astronaut. Let's astronaut my god guys space. You know pro. You know again. I look at astronauts. It's like i. I'd look at a veteran. Or i look at a soldier who fights. I mean they got more than i do. I sit studio. And gripe all the time but i just you know. I was amazed by The he was not my first astronaut. I've met a few Never met buzz aldrin or ordeal armstrong. Or anybody like that. A few shuttle astronauts. I've i've met a former nasa. Well no i interviewed chuck cernan but i was never. I interviewed him over the phone. So i i don't know i just have an affinity for space i i i love it because of course i love the topic of aliens. Ufo's avi lopburi more. We come on. Space travels amazing. I mean we'd star trek star wars. These are things. I really like And you know noticing too. I grew up in utah. Where more than fire call was twenty miles away thirty miles away from where i lived and this is where the rings were made for the space shuttle program of course the failed challenger explosion was because of the ordering problems were more than thiokol and only two failures in the whole space shuttle program where people were killed. Astronauts were killed. No real new information though. That was out there and You know and we kept being promised this was just you know the shuttle program was going to be used to not only take the bus out for a dry but it was also going to be used to go to the space station and bring astronauts food and stuff and now well for the longest time we were contracting russia. We're having a deal with russia to send astronauts to the space shuttle to the space station to well actually said food to the space as well and i thought why are we relying on russia in and this whole nonsense about how russia was our enemy and everything. They're our enemy. Why are they helping us with our space program. Just didn't make any sense. But yeah i mean looking back at our field. Space programs is important. Indicate that president. Barack obama crippled dass his efforts to send astronauts beyond low earth orbit. When obama came into office. he didn't want a number of other. Presidents have done to determine their goals for nasa. He formed a presidential commission to study the space agency and then he came up with some recommendations so he you a committee the committee. You basically. you're saying well. I think there are far more important things. We need to invest our money. And so i'm gonna cut your budget. You know basically what area. We're gonna bring you altogether. Cut your budget. So you're going to have to deal with you know whatever that's all it's been cutting budget and budget cutting and and And so that's why you have now space x that's why you have You know these other companies visas and others who want to do space because you know space has been neglected. The budgets have been neglected in our government for some time but we had a lot of conservative presidents like george w bush and of course donald trump. Who said yeah. We're all the speech program. Let's get it going. And the reason why is because there's brooke obama once said and this is one of the reasons why he basically said no to you know exorbitant budgets for space. He says well. You know spaces. In america. First issue. And we should be more universal. We she wore. We wore worldly with our concepts in our conquest of space. We need to do you know we didn't do it all together as a world. It's a it's a world bring people together in a world government or world philosophy. I think reagan kinda hinted to what he said. You know our differences worldwide would vanish. We were facing an alien threat from outside of this world but that was an alien threat. That was the idea that if there were aliens out there wanting to eat us then we would certainly band together as a group. I mean that's what independence day was all about right. See the independence day. Movie or armageddon were nasa saves the day. You know it's time and time again. We get told it. Our space program is amazing. Well yeah they do amazing things. But it's not as amazing as it used to be. I mean lockheed. Martin ceo norm augustine Headed up the augustine commission during the obama administration actually was named after maga sanofi headed up with the. It's called the augustine commission and basically they returned with a set of recommendations after few wants convening during the obama administration so the commission found the program then in existence project constellation was not execute under any reasonable

The Parents Are Not Alright

"I'm in the virtual studio today with producer Ginny Moon Hey Jeannie I'm waving to you all the way from Harlem, Hey Maria, I'm in Queens. So Jeannie were talking about our favorite topic today parenting, right? Yeah and parenting in twenty twenty is a whole new level parenting. You know what I have adult children now. So honestly, I am so thankful that I do not have to be raising little kids during this time I just can't imagine. So what have you been doing because how old is your little boy now Medina's turning three it's been an adventure I don't know how else to put it. But in this adventure, you're not really going anywhere, right? No, it's an adventure within the four walls of our apartment. So what's it been like like? How do you even manage it I don't some days and some days I do. I had to cut back to part time. So when everything shut down I, just tried to manage the best I could. But it became too much I. was burnt out I was trying to work at night I was trying to work in his nap times and also like switching gears from mom to try and. Write an email or work I can't multitask again if I have a toddler running around in the background running my life like he's the boss, I can hear my in the background saying Mommy's. But yeah, you just Kinda deal with it. Yeah. I have to say in the beginning the only way I made it through, was my coffee in the morning and passing the torch to the wine that I would have to the day. I know you're tired genie as a parent but the thing is, is that when people are tired, they're like, oh, my God the last thing I want to do is go to work but for you, you're like I'm tired I really WanNa go to work yeah. Because I just WANNA. Work without distractions like how many times a day do I have seen running in here and being like me and like L. And he wants to play and like. Hangman. And it's nice. I had review. On some level, but I really just want to focus for an eight. Hour Day Without a distraction and it's because it's really hard to switch gears feel like women are good at multitasking. But this is not one of those scenarios I wanNA parent when I need to parent and I wanna work when I need to work I can't do both at the same time. So. This whole thing about the schools being closed down like New York City like they try to never close the schools down, right? Yeah. So the fact that they did shut down and they shut down all around the country poses a really big challenge because. Not, everybody can set up for remote learning I mean not everybody has Internet. Some kids only get their meals if they're going to school so. It really has been a challenge on a lot of different levels. So you decided that you like all parents you're like, okay I need to talk to other parents and commiserate and think and see how other people are doing it. So you didn't gather a group of parents I guess virtually right? Yeah I did because there's been a slew of articles about the mental load that everybody is dealing with as parents because you're not meant to do both things at once like you can't parent and work full-time that's why childcare exists and none of this was meant to be a long term solution. But I do want to say before we start that even though we have all been affected by the pandemic, all of us participating in today's roundtable have been fortunate enough to still be working in some format. So we're all healthy and we're all grateful for that but we're barely hanging on by threat. So here we go. I want to welcome from Dallas Texas we have. dinty Cabanas. Hi. How are you? Thank you for having me. So glad you're here I have Joe Marvin Tura from Richmond California. For having me and I have to Haida Alencastro from Orlando Florida. Hey thank you. Teeny. Thanks for having me and just the disclaimer everyone knows to hide it and I have actually known each other for like twenty years. So no surprises there little bit. All right. So I just want to quickly go around the virtual room. And tell me about your kids what you do. This is our Sia I am in Dallas. As you said, I have two little girls wind will be ten in three weeks. The other one will be four in two weeks. And I for fulltime digital marketing manager for. Mary. Kay Corporate here in Dallas Great Jomar. Hi I'm Joanna and I'm in Richmond. That's you know the bay area and my little one is turning three months and I teach elementary school. So juggling the new definition of a teacher and first time parent has been very, very interesting adventure. Into Haida. I have two kids. My son is ten years old and my daughter is about to be eight and a few weeks and I am a systems engineer for Lockheed. Martin but I work from home. So I've been A. Since two thousand and five. Okay. So we're going to start from the beginning. I think I mean I don't know about the rest of you but I think we all were kind of like Oh. This is going to be a few weeks we can do this. No big deal, but walk me through personally what? Each of you guys had to go through and like what kind of plan you came up with to get by for the end of the school year. Well for us like all of you we've had to adjust we did not work from home originally We were released for spring break and never came back. We were told we were going to stay. And do you learning and so it was a shock I'm not gonNA live my husband and I freaked out a little bit. But then we had to pivot really quickly. Right what are we going to do? Do we have the right equipment to we have the right setup at the House Both of our kids are in the same school. So that was one good thing because it was need to everybody. So the school they know what they were doing. We know what we're doing the girls were like what's going on? So the ambiguity of it all was really challenging for all of us. But we just started getting a routine down our dining room became our command center. So I would say the first two weeks were horrible I'm not GonNa lie but I think we've all pivoted. Can and so I was pivoting at home I was pivoting at work. And even with myself like how am I going to take time for myself and you know lose it But I'm not allowed I'm sure I'm not a lot. Of. This

The U.S. Hypersonics Program Matures

"We're here because really in the span of a couple of weeks, our knowledge of the US hypersonic weapons program is significantly expanded and a lot of these disparate pieces that we have been tracking are falling into place. Steve. been at the forefront of reporting a lot of these developments. Can you summarize the highlights for us? Right well, just to kind of give you a a an update Eh cross the entire spectrum because it's a huge portfolio. So let's go back to March that was the last flight test hypersonic flight tests that the DOD has has carried out with that was with the blog zero common hypersonic lied body. That's the glide body that's going to be the front end for the army's long range hypersonic weapon and the Navy's intermediate range, conventional prom strike, which is summering launch missile. That was a successful flight test It was later described by president trump as a as the super duper missile We were trying to figure out what that was, but that according to CNN's reporting. That's that's what he was referring to. At the time. The Air Force meanwhile has got a couple of different programs. Ongoing one is the AGM one, eighty, three A. Rapid Response Weapon Lockheed Martin design for for both the front front end and the integration, and they did a captive carry flight tests that would appear to be pretty successful just a couple of weeks ago and they are moving that into flight test with the FRONTON actually incorporating the design from the tactical boost glide program from Darpa that was supposed to be an independent separate. Well, not quite there. They are linked that was supposed to be a separate flight test program that they've now folded that into the aero vehicle design and will continue testing that through era there. was also on the Hawk programs. That's the next set of flight tests that are supposed to be happening That's hypersonic everything weapon concepts which is basically a scream jet powered cruise missile There's a Lockheed version and Raytheon version We know back in May that the Lockheed attempted to do a captive carry test with their version of the Hawk missile but there was some kind of failure during the flight test We still don't know exactly what it, what it was but it appeared to be somewhat damaging and but since then we hit me for nothing about. where. They're going with that except for the fact that the Air Force a few weeks ago, launched a follow on program to develop an operational prototype. Jet Powered cruise missile that you know would be a follow on to the the program But in the competition Air Force basically selected three companies a couple of weeks ago to form the competitive field for the follow on Hawk missile and those three companies are Lockheed Raytheon and Boeing. Which of course, the interesting part there is Boeing locking Raytheon are heavily involved in the Arrow Program and the TV g program and Hawk program, but Boeing has been shut out. So this gives them a chance to come back into the hypersonic Arena for at one point buying of course, was the sort of champion in especially in the air breathing propulsion space with the x fifty one program, and if you go way back I'm sure guy could could chime in on on these programs would be like the space shuttle and fifteen with Boeing's legacy companies so. That kind of brings us up to speed with where we are right now.

Intellectual-Property Assets Are Getting More Valuable

"As a foreign intelligence agency were responsible for understanding a broad range of threats. Presented by governments to the United States, one of those threats include our cyber threats how nations may be using cyber to achieve their national objectives that might be intellectual property theft for example, to counter department offensively valid by accelerating foreign governments ability to actually productized particular RDA for weapon that may be targetting critical infrastructure of a country. As part of threatening that country or as part of putting pressure on a given country. How are we doing against the cyber threats are we? Barely keeping up, are we catching up? Are we getting ahead of the game or? Is it always going to be hard for the defender. Overall technology is getting more secure. Technologies Belt more securely today. So. The fundamental resilience is is improving known. You have open source products. We have lots of is looking at a given technology and helping find vulnerabilities and address them. That being said for an ever-more connected economy in ever more connected society, and as we build more connections, sometimes systems that were not necessarily built for those kinds of connections we bring and introduce new risks on the third poll the positive side there's far more awareness about those risks and how to approach addressing them identifying what are the most important assets to protect. Seems to be an effort on the part of NSA to kind of open up a blackbox and Kinda shut the reputation no such agency we want to be trusted to achieve or we believe we can uniquely contribute to team USA on either the first step. Is conveying who we are conveying the culture. That's here the commitment to American values. Certainly. When a part of our mission is an intelligence mission in a democracy, you have an obligation to ensure that the Americans. We serve feel they understand the values by which we live. And neuberger is the current director of the national security. Agency's Cybersecurity Directorate. She has held a variety of jobs in both the public and private sectors. We just sat down with an to talk about her career, her and her director. It's multiple responsibilities and how she sees a cyber threats facing our country. I'm Michael Morale and this is intelligence matters. So an welcomed to intelligence matters, it is great to have you on the show. It's great to be here. So I think the place to start and is with your career before you joined the national security. Agency. You had a career in the private sector. Can you tell us about that and tell us what you did in the private sector and then what drew you into government, service. Sure. So I was in running technology at a at a financial services company during that time period when financial services companies really moved off mainframe environments to the Web. Decline server technology. So that piece of both taking an operations and emission and its associated technology and people and culture really Shaked shaped the way I approach a lot of those problems today. And I was raised in in a family where my dad came as a refugee all my grandparents came as refugees to the US and they just. Constantly instilled in US how grateful we should be for the opportunity to be born in America and raised in America, with its freedoms with its ability to pursue one's dreams and and that we owed it for that and. I was driving home from from work in. In two, thousand six, we just done a large acquisition of. Companies of banks, custodian operations. And on the radio, they were talking about the bombing of mosque. Samara Moscow in smaller rock and just the. Soldiers dying civilians dying and the troubles there and I I still don't know why but I thought of my dad and. That's myself. Perhaps now's the time to repay a little bit of of that in some way and. I've been a graduate student at Columbia had a I had a professor tell me about the White House fellows program and encouraged me to apply and I kind of I have to admit was a bit of the New Yorker Countless New York ever. kind of put that aside and for whatever reason I just felt that calling at that moment called him and said I'll apply and fast forward I was assigned to the Pentagon. With zero military background. And you learned a lot about the culture very drawn to that shared commitment and spent a year in the Pentagon worked for the navy and then came to NSA. Couple years later. What did they doing at the Pentagon and the Navy? So I was the deputy chief management officer, the Navy essentially, the Navy had a number of broad enterprise wide technology efforts which they were working again, bring that you people mission. Technology Triangle. And they asked me to help work on a couple of working directly for the secretary of the Navy figure out why a of them were struggling and then help them get on track. So I worked on that and I often get asked by people. How did YOU END UP AT NSA? A pretty funny story in that I had a seventy six year old and I was commuting from Baltimore and the. The work life balance was a bit tough and I met somebody and he asked me about. How he was doing and I commented that I really love the work but it was a little hard for me to do the juggle. And he said, you know I happen to know that NSA standing up you director NSA standing up cyber command and I know they need people with your kind of of background. So how about if I make a phone call there? And I went for an interview commute was thirty minutes and it sounds so foolish but. That was pretty much what it took. Interesting interesting. So the private sector and then the Department of Defence which is as you know this huge enterprise and then NSA and this is a this is not an easy question I know about kind of the similarities and differences of those three different experiences. It all begins with people. In every organization missions have to adapt and change They adopted change in the private sector because perhaps you have a competitor, perhaps the customer spaces adapted. Certainly financial services saw that we're the scale of data was just increasing the scale of trains was increasing and the traditional manual processes couldn't keep up. So we automation with needed to reduce errors and help us keep on track with we're trading was going. Technology could deliver on that, but the the business of the organization had to change to fully take advantage of the technology and the way people did that mission and use technology had to change along the way. So I think in each of those organizations that taught me that for that, that triangle has to be kind of guided together to get to an outcome mission technology and people if you really want to be able to fully. Whether it's take advantage of a market or stay ahead of an adversary in our own mission here in the ICU dod that triangle has to work together and you have to communicate every those three planes together when talking about why the changes needed. So an in your tenure at NSA, you've served as its first chief risk officer. The assistant deputy director of operations, the head of the Russia's small group, and now the head of the Cybersecurity Directorate. Can you take us through your trajectory there how did your responsibilities differ from roll to roll? Absolutely, and so I came into an Santa's small team part of a small team that was standing up cyber command, the chief risk officer role was. was created after the media leaks period of two, thousand, thirteen where we learned that. Really appreciating risk mount looking at in a holistic way across partnership risk operational. Risks Technology risks. We learned that we needed to adapt the way we looked at risk and then change according to that. So I think in each of those roles. Either, the adversary was changing around us a threat was changing around us. We. Wanted to take advantage fully of an opportunity and I was responsible for taking the big picture strategic goals, translating those two measurable outcomes and objectives and helping you know contribute, communicate the why and then bringing the team of people along to get their each other's efforts was a bit different. But you know. We talked about the risk of doing the risk of not doing weighing that appropriately we talked about the insuring that as we approached new missions policy and technology move together, and certainly when we looked at the elections work in two, thousand, eighteen, the Russia's small group work we saw we're adversaries of have used influence operation since the time of Adam and Eve perhaps would have changed was again the ability to use social media to both focus and directed to have larger impact. So focusing on the Russia's small group for just a second and what was that what was the what was the mission and what were your responsibilities with regard to the two thousand eighteen election's to the extent that you can talk about that. Absolutely. So the mission was ensuring the integrity of the two thousand eighteen midterm elections ensuring that we I understood the threat second that we appropriately tipped all the information we had about the threat to key partners across the US government. Certainly, FBI from a counter infants perspective digest from Cybersecurity of elections, infrastructure perspective, and they finally that we would support Cyber Command. If if authorized to impose costs, it's were attempts to disrupt. Disrupt the election. So. After the two thousand eighteen election's president trump publicly confirmed that cyber command played a role in deterring the Russians in two thousand eighteen are they're important lessons from what happened in two thousand eighteen about how we as a country can defend ourselves against this this insidious threat. Yes. So you know across the government, we look at two key polls. Integrity one is attempts to malignly influence population whether that is to highlight social discord to highlight issues that divide the population or to. Hand up sheer inappropriate. You know share information as part of shaping individuals ideas, and then the second is potentially interfering hacking into elections infrastructure as part of efforts to change the vote and I think the first pieces, the value of resiliency. The sense that you know once trust is lost, it's very hard to regain. So the knowledge for the American public that there are hundreds of people across the US government committed to and working to ensure the integrity of our elections. When it comes to counter influence though the biggest resilience as each of us. As Americans when we're reading something asking who might be trying to influence me what is the source of that information I fully confident in that source of that information. And then finally the role of the role of technology and the role of Public Private Partnership. In as part of elections integrity. So for us in the intelligence community were constantly watching for which adversaries maybe seeking to to shape a populations thinking to shape an election and then rapidly tipping that to partners or. To the private sector to ensure that they're both aware of techniques and our countering them on their platforms. So we've since learned shocked last week the updates from deny that the Russians continue to engage in election interference, the Chinese, the Iranians, and the punchline of all that for me is it's really hard to deter. Foreign interference right and I'm wondering if it's something special about foreign interference or if it's more about cyber at the end of the day and the difficulty of seeing cyber attributing it if you see it, how do you think about that question absolutely I think it is more about cyber than about elections from a cyber perspective when we look at fully both protecting cyber infrastructure and then to your second point about attribution, there's complexity laying what we call the red on top of the we may see threats. That are talked about strategic perspective and then we partners across the US government a looking to see where does that present itself? Where are the given vulnerabilities in a given infrastructure? The powers when you can lay the two together and say, here is a nation state that has intent to interfere in whatever that is an election critical infrastructure. I Pete Best and then translate that to the tactical level to say that network scanning or that vulnerability in hardware or software may well be used to achieve the objective putting that in place, and then most importantly preventing it because at the end of the day riding report about a victim and notifying the victim is far less satisfying than being able to put that together and prevent the adversary cheating their objective. So we've already started to shift now into your new role, right which was relaunched in October I believe. So be great if you could, and if you could explain for our listeners I, what NASA's two main missions are. Again and then cybersecurity and the difference between them just to give folks here level set absolutely. So Ns as a foreign intelligence agency were responsible for understanding a broad range of threats. Presented by governments to the United States, one of those threats include our cyber threats how nations may be using cyber to achieve their national objectives as that might be intellectual property theft for example, to counter the department defensively Thallady by accelerating foreign governments ability to to actually productized particular rnd for weapon that may be targetting critical infrastructure of a country. As part of threatening that country or as part of putting pressure on a given country. So that is the threat information on the second side. And say has cybersecurity mission. We're celestial known We build the keys codes and cryptography that's used to protect all of US government's most sensitive communications thinking nuclear command control weapon systems, the president's communications with allies, and we provide technical advice to mitigate those same threats that I talked about. So the really the he integration of the two missions where we think the magic is where we can say here's what we think adversaries are seeking to do, and here's how from a cybersecurity perspective we recommend you protect against. So so what motivated and the relaunch of the directorate and has its mission changed at all really good question. So we recognize that we were at a crossroads with national security as both technology and society ships were happening. We saw only kinds of technology that people want to from small satellites to Internet of things and each of those presents huge advancements. But they also present cybersecurity risk. Along with that, we saw various nation surtees. New Technologies think North Korean crypto currencies to get around sanctions to achieve their own objectives and we said we really need to up our game to more quickly be understanding those threats and ensuring that. We could both provide advice to build new technologies as early as possible, but also to counter adversaries use of those same technologies to achieve their national security. We're GONNA take a quick break to hear from our sponsor. Dumb. We'll be right back with more discussion with an neuberger. At Lockheed Martin, we're on a mission. Your mission. Not just the next mission but the one that's two steps ahead. That's why we've not only taken the lead in hyper sonics, but we're helping you integrate technology faster than. It's why we're not only developing the laser weapons systems you'll need but deploying them in the field. Our mission is to build the integrated solutions you can depend on because the world is depending on you. So and what are the what are the primary areas of Focus for your directorate? What kind of people work there? What's their skill set and what kind of customers do you serve? Questions. So the first parties. Operationalizing Intelligence. How do we ensure that from the intelligence that we see we took anything that's unique. And timely quickly so that we can prevent the victim. So that's the first, the first piece of of work, our areas of focus are. Both understanding that giving guidance encryption, we believe encryption. A key protection particularly in telecommunications environment that in many cases is entrusted. So both in building the government's special encryption, modernizing that as well as providing advice and insights on how to best use. Encryption the text of people who work cure are like we see him any organizations abroad gamut we have intelligence analyst. We have country-specific experts have a broad swath of technical experts, encryption network technologies, hardware, and software vulnerability analysts as well but the power is weird that can be integrated where you can say. How do you build on route of trust all the way through to an end point? Had you properly defend network and take a step back and do risk analysis to say? We are the gaps in your resilience and we're should your next dollar investment to closest gaps Right, and then what about customers is your is, is it just the Department of Defense? Is that the US government is even broader than that? How do you think about who it is you're working for? Yup Great Question. So there's a specific set work we do for what we call national security systems systems carrying classified information national security information the director. Vanessa is also the national manager for National Security Systems, that's the authority under which as I mentioned, we have we build the keys codes and cryptography responsible for distributing threat information as well. So those are across the US government with a particular focus on duty. Weapons Systems. And Related Systems. A second set of key partners and customers are dhs I. D. H., S. and its role supporting critical infrastructure. And, the sector specific agencies, and like I said the the real magic of understanding the critical infrastructure, we're it's key gaps and vulnerabilities are and being able to marry that up with what a foreign government may be intending to do and providing focused insight. Across the US government, there is broad use of commercial technologies, particularly duty and and national security system. So you may have seen when we're issuing advisories were also issuing advice on how to secure and configure those commercial technologies well because we see that. Those are used all across. Sensitive, systems as well. Your director has issued I think a dozen or so. Advisories about cybersecurity threats. Can you talk about why you guys do that? What the criteria is for quitting one of those out and then how do you think about the impact they have? Do You keep metrics on that? How do you think about? Advisories absolutely. So. Our advisories other way we really do them for three reasons. One is if we see a nation state actor using a particular vulnerability against the system care about we find that it really drives urgency of action people run faster when they're pursued, and if we can say, this nation state actor is using this vulnerability. Here's the mitigation advice to protect yourself against that we see impact and I'll talk about that how we measure that impact at the end. The second thing is there's a deep expertise here because we build and we break encryption. So encryption related technologies like the peons like you. You may recall the windows ten cryptographic vulnerability in January. Those are areas we focus on because we know those are sometimes hard to understand technically hard to implement. So if we can give very practical advice, them will issue those as well to help that be put in place, and then the third would be where there's a timely need and we're getting a lot of questions and we feel that putting out a product helps guide people and thinking about how to think about security I'll give an example. As. As covid. Pressed a lot of organizations across the US government particularly duty as well to move to telework. We started getting a lot of questions about secure collaboration. which commercial tools were safe to us and our goal was teaching people how to evaluate what safe to us. So we issued a product we're laid out the different attributes like. Code is available for review its end to end Krypton and a few other such attributes, and then we rated different secure collaboration publicly available tools against them and the cool part was we had companies call and say, well, you didn't get something quite right or can we be included as well and we said absolutely, we issued a second version and then we have another one coming out next week because our goal was making it as useful as possible and also helping teach people. How to assess. Different. Products for security. You ask the question about how we measure impact. So there's three different measures we've been using. The first is, do we see patch rates go up? They'll do we see for vulnerabilities that we've talked about here is a foreign actor might be using a boehner ability to achieve an objective. Can we watch those patriots go up and it was really cool to see. And a number of cases we've we've watched that increase. The second piece is there is a very capable and active cybersecurity industry has the information shared enable them to better protect. Sensitive US government national security systems networks, and you know in the case of the Xm vulnerability that we issued, we're advisory where we talked about the particular unit of Russian intelligence using the XML male vulnerability. It was really great to see five different cyber-security entities using that to identify other. Russian intelligence infrastructure and then take that down. So that was success for us that we made it harder for that adversary to achieve its objectives, and then the third one is really the feedback on the number of downloads and the feedback from administrators saying this was useful. This was unique timely and actionable could act on it, and then in May you guys took what I thought was an unprecedented step of actually openly attributing the exploitation of vulnerability to the Russian, Gru. and. That seemed to rare to me and I'm wondering why you decided to actually name Russia in this instance. So I it is rare because as you noted earlier, implicitly attributions hard. You may have seen a prior product where we highlighted one st state using another country's. Infrastructure to achieve its objective and then highlight he just hard attribution is. So when it's done, it needs to be done with precision to be confident. In that and we chose to do it because. We see that it makes targeted network owners more quickly patch and secure and build the resilience of their systems network administrators have way more vulnerabilities to address than they have time for or frankly money for and way more alerts than they can act on. So we can say this particular vulnerability is being used by a nation State Intelligence Service. We see them we see network administrators moving quickly and addressing it, and that's a fundamental goal. Fundamental goal is improving cybersecurity. If you kind of step back and look at look at the big picture here, you know, maybe from a thirty five thousand foot level how are we doing? The cyber threats are we barely keeping up? Are we catching up? Are we getting ahead of the game or? Is it always going to be hard for the defender. In this game in because the guy on the offense can always come up come up with something new how you think about sort of where we are in the history of of the threat of cyber and defense against it. I think we points overall technology is getting more secure. Technologies built more securely today. So the fundamental resilience is is improving you know when you have open source products, we have lots of is looking at a given technology and helping find vulnerabilities and address them. That being said were an ever more connected economy in an ever-more connected society, and as we build more connections, sometimes two systems that were not necessarily built for those kinds of connections. Data Systems. In that way, we bring and introduce new risks. On the third poll on the positive side, there's far more awareness about those risks and how to approach addressing them identifying what are the most important assets to protect and ensuring good practices are in place and it's far easier than ever to put that in place. So I think it's a mixed story on the one hand more more technologies built more securely, and there are communities of individuals working together to ensure their secure on the other hand far more. Technology some of which. Is connected in ways that bring risk in ways that we always have to and I guess the third part, which is where we started adversary seeking to take advantage of those risks to achieve their objectives. So. If you if you were standing in front of a large multinationals board of directors in you're talking to them about cybersecurity. What's the one or two things that you would absolutely want them to take away from from your conversation? What is the tangible thing you most want to protect and what's the intangible thank you most want to protect. So if you're drug company, what is the intellectual property that's going to be your next potentially big drug big driver of economic growth, big driver of healing, and then second what's the biggest intangible? Thank perhaps, that's your reputation. The way you treat your employees, the price, the prices that you charge and what you're, what you're. How much you mark that up. Make sure that you're protecting both carefully make your your cyber security commensurate with with the risk presented to you if you lose either one. And you mentioned you mentioned Skater Systems and I'm not sure that all my listeners know what those are just explain that and then is there something? Is there something special about protecting data system from protecting? Normal network absolutely. So Skater Systems are essentially control systems for the core areas of infrastructure in a given country in a given company. So think power systems clean water drug manufacturing. and. Those are. Those are often complex system. So what's unique about them is you know those systems over the years were often built four reliability in the event of a bad storm that power system would come back online with confidence as. More technologies got connected. So for example, the ability to measure. Use of power the ability to measure confidence in in water and chemical level. Some of those systems got connected to network systems that provide a way to access them. One of the joint products we recently issued between Ns. WAS An ICS product because there had been some public articles about. a given attack against skater systems in the Middle East, and we wanted to ensure that we together with. One of our closest partners was providing technical advice to. Skate entities in the US based on what we were learning about those attacks. So interest, a couple more questions you've been terrific with your time. Seems to be an effort on the part of an essay to kind of open up the black box and showed the reputation no such agency right. Your conversation with me thinking example of that why is that a priority for for the agency and for General Nakasone? I in the cybersecurity mission fundamentally if we're not trusted we can't achieve our intact. People take advice from those they trust and the power of. Across the US Government Team USA work cyber. There each organization plays its position within that role. You Know My counterpart at Digest Chris Crabs often talks about them being the national risk managers. At an essay, we believe what we can bring uniquely is that integration of intelligence series of seeking to do what their capabilities are, what their infrastructure looks like and how to defend against cyber security advice to counter that, and that's always continuing because technologies change adversaries, goals change, and the resilient always has to be increased to meet that. So we want to be trusted to achieve what we believe. We can uniquely contribute to team USA on cyber. The first step to doing that is conveying, we are conveying the culture that's here the commitment to American values, and certainly WanNa part of our mission is an intelligence mission. In a in a democracy, we have an obligation to ensure that the Americans we serve. Feel they understand the values which we live. So your your former colleague and my really good friend Glenn Gerstl road. Op Ed about a year ago about what he saw the. Profound implications of the Digital Revolution on national security, and he raised a lot of concerns and among those was the sheer pace and scale and volume of technological change and. And data that's GONNA force intelligence agencies including NSA to fundamentally change how they do business I was GonNa say thinking big picture about those kinds of challenges. What are you trying to tackle I? Would've the adjustments look like, how do you? How do you think about the challenge that Glenn laid out? Absolutely, so I from the perspective of large amounts of data and ensuring, we can make sense of them. Ensuring that we can do big data analysis to help. Triage the information we identify and determine what are people are big assets put their time on to determine he's and how to act on them. So for example. We we're looking at machine learning to classify malware and we're certainly looking at. Machine learning potentially to help us identify vulnerabilities scale particularly when we look at systems that represent thirty years of technology like muffins systems, how do you secure a weapon system? That's been out there and represent each phase of technology and have confidence in its resilience and in command and control. And then finally. We have an obligation to both bring those technologies to be on our mission and understand how adversaries might use that and manage that accordingly. So for example, as we think about artificial intelligence and the potential to automatically. Direct weapon. In the United States we have strong values around how we would think about automation versus human control. In other countries around the world, there might be different ways that those kinds of decisions are approached. So how do we ensure that we both? Bring that integration of. Compliance and technology to the way we pursue it but also be aware of those gaps and keep an eye on the risks of those gaps. And you mentioned you mentioned people and you mentioned people a couple of times and and just took two questions about that. One is given the competition that you face with all of these cyber security firms and. Your folks must be very attractive to them, and their skills are quite valuable in their private sector. How how difficult is it for you to recruit and retain talent? Really thoughtful question because you asked two questions in their recruit entertained. So. From the recruit side, we get really great people. On the routine side. We have a really compelling mission. and. What brings keeps people. Here is the sense that they're contributing to something bigger than themselves. That is challenging fulfilling. It's on us as organizational leaders to ensure that each person has that opportunity to contribute what they can uniquely bring chew to that mission. And one of the one of the cool aspects of the Cybersecurity standup has been people who have left to call in and say, Hey, I'd like to come back I learned a lot. In the private sector, the missions, calling me and like to contribute again, and we've hired a number of them back and continuing to increase that and part of the message we have when people if people do decide to leave is to say that is great. You will continue to contribute to the nation's security. You'll learn a lot in the five at sector, and if you ever want to come back the doors open. What do you? What do you want the American people to know about the women and men who work for you. That, they're committed to the values. That this country was established for. That there are significant threats to the United States, our allies and to those values, and that not always can we talk about those threats because? By impact sometimes intelligence community, even the security mission has to operate in those shad in the show does so. Trust our values, trust that we are proud Americans. We swear an oath to the Constitution of the United States, and if you do question it or if you want to learn more roll up your sleeves and come into the for a few years and get to know what yourself because each person has unique abilities and a unique ability to contribute to their to their country in whatever way they choose whether that's government are in the private sector. But if you ever doubt it come on in and work here and and raise your voice and be a part of it. It sort of takes you back to what your parents taught you to. It really does it my dad grew up in in communist Hungary and In the beginning when I came into government, he would call me on the phone sometimes and switched to a foreign language and. I realized that for him growing up in another country. Is that complete trust of government that I American born? You know have that doesn't mean it's trust and verify it's from verify but there are things that I take for granted growing up in this society that I don't know if he ever will. So being able to look at things through his eyes and through mind make me realize how fortunate we are to be here and how much we have obligation to. To ensure it stays that way. And thank you so much for joining us and thank you for your service. Thank you so much for your time.

China says it will retaliate after US orders its Houston consulate to close

"With the Chinese. Let's deal with the hacking situation and the story that broke yesterday and even before this, we had heard that the Chinese were actively trying to steal intellectual property on Research for a Corona virus vaccine and it comes down to the Chinese know that this virus originated in Wuhan. The Chinese know that they misled the world. They misled the United States they misled. Originally, the World Health Organisation, which has become complicity with the Chinese. On multiple levels and the Chinese did a disservice to humanity. Let's look at it through the prism and the lenses of us here in the United States. That if they would have let us know in December Or early January what they knew and if the Chinese would have locked down Wuhan sooner, even just a week sooner. They didn't tell their own people between January 14th in the 21st and there was a massive spread and rule on at that point. They don't even tell their own people or they didn't move to lock things down. And again the Chinese Communist government completely to blame here for mishandling and mismanaging and lying to the world. And with that said the Chinese don't want Toby. Shown up that they don't want to be behind the eight ball. They want to also be the ones that say, Hey, we've got the best vaccine against Corona virus. Instead of all of the other pharmaceutical and research and institutions around the world that are working diligently and feverishly. On a vaccine whether it's German scientists whether it's French, whether it's what we're hearing out of Oxford in the UK Fizer here in the United States and, of course, their branches all around the world, Moderna. You know, that's just a fraction of who's working. Johnson and Johnson here in the United States is just a fraction of who's working on this vaccine. And the Chinese were we heard this two months ago. I talked about this on the program months ago that the Chinese were tryingto hack and steal data from all over the world so they could be first. Was saying, Hey, we got the vaccine. And now we have two Chinese hackers that have been formally charged with trying to steal research on the Corona virus vaccine. Trying to steal from private companies trying to steal from our government agencies as well. And this is what came down from the DOJ yesterday. And these two guys apparently work that the Chinese Ministry of State Security and the Gwang Dong State Security Department To lead a campaign, which the DOJ the assistant attorney General, John Demmer said was a sweeping global computer intrusion campaign. That's the nice way to say hacking intellectual property theft just going in and stealing. Chinese are very, very good at this. That's why they've gotten so far militarily. From a industrial standpoint, they stolen countless countless hundreds of billions or trillions. An intellectual property. Lee. Zhou Yu, 34 years old and dung. Jeez, I got zero J A Z a shot. G, uh 31. According to the reports, they targeted intellectual property and confidential business information. Held by Pharmaceutical companies and those that are steaming full speed ahead toward a corona virus treatment. Treatments. So the therapeutics the testing issues, the vaccines they were trying to rip off and bust into everything. And this is what the Chinese have done again. Defense contractors. Why do you think the latest generation of the Chinese fighter jet looks just like the F 35 Because they ripped off was the Lockheed Martin or north of Groman. They They controlled her back in the late to thousands like 8 4009 And they stole a whole lot of defence information on the F 35 ripped it off. So it's defense contractors. They rip off the pharmaceutical companies. A computer high tech medical device companies. The Chinese even have a history of busting into solar energy companies here in the United States video game development They're ripping off information. They're stealing codes. It's nonstop on what the Chinese do their absolute thieves. When it comes to intellectual property. According to the indictment. These malicious cyber activities began more than 10 years ago. And were ongoing as of the date of the indictment, according to AA de MERS. During that time, the hackers stole terabytes of data from hundreds of targets. Establishing themselves as a prolific threat to the U. S and foreign networks. And these charges from the feds. They say that these Chinese hackers tried to access the accounts of other organizations that we're not government organizations. They tried to bust also into dissident organizations or actual dissidents or clergy, human rights activists. Is it trying to get Intel and so they can punish and and go after anything that's a threat to the Chinese Communist. Regime. That's what this comes down to. Yeah, Lee and Dung they were working on high tech companies. That was their focus, but they had a whole team. They work of others, obviously, but Lee and Dung they were, they were focused on busting into high tech companies here in the United States, also in South Korea, and Sweden and Spain, Australia, Belgium, Britain. Germany, Japan, Lithuania Nothing about a stony and Latvia. But Lithuania and these indictments were filed in U. S District Court in Washington. And shows that Beijing is using fight cyber theft. In a worldwide campaign. To quote Robbe replicate and replace non Chinese companies in the global marketplace. And then there's also said that China is providing the safe haven for these criminals in order for the Chinese government to get all this information that these guys were Pretty much on the Chinese kami payroll. China has not taken its place alongside Russia, Iran and North Korea in that shameful club of nations that provide a safe haven for cyber criminals to exchange or in exchange for those criminals being on call toe work for the benefit of the state. Again to feed the Chinese Communist Party's insatiable hunger. For American and other non Chinese companies. And to steal their hard earned intellectual property, including covert 19 research, according to Des Murs, assistant attorney general It's a huge problem it has been, and that's why the Chinese are as far as they are. So on the heels of that now we go to the next chapter. And that's that the Chinese consulate in Houston, Texas, has been ordered closed and, you know he's got his finger on this pulse and is spot on and is not a great job and doesn't pull punches. Mince words. And that's Florida Republican Senator Marco Rubio. He gets and has gotten the Chinese threat for a very long time. And what Marco Rubio said today in Fox Business interview is that the Chinese Consulate in Houston is a front for a massive spy organization. And the State Department has ordered that consulate in Houston. To shut down, he said. This consulate is basically a front. It's kind of the central node of a massive spy operation. Commercial espionage, defense espionage. Also influence agents try to influence Congress, according to Marco Rubio. And by the way, Senator Rubio is the acting chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee. And he said that this closure of the Houston Chinese consulate was long overdue. And he said the State Department Was completely right Team make this move, and the State Department says that this is absolutely necessary to protect intellectual property here in the United States and private information. And of course, the Chinese. They're going ballistic. They're saying that they could retaliate. That this is uncalled for. This is a gray GIs. We could retaliate. China China When you get there, try to get you to send another virus our way. Is that how you going to retaliate? And Rubio also predicted that China Would then retaliate by closing one of our diplomatic facilities. In China. And if you wanna get a snapshot of what we have in China, Of course, we have the official U. S embassy in Beijing, but we have five consulates around China. We have a consulate in Shanghai. We have a U. S consulate in Gwang Ju. We have a U. S consulate and Cheng do and Wuhan Great and in Shenyang, So we have apparently five other Consulates. On top of our embassy. So the expectation is the Chinese going to retaliate by shutting down one of our places. Hey, what about this fire? What about the Houston Fire Department being called to this embassy or this consulate? Has to shut down by end of business like 45 o'clock on Friday. So the Chinese have to shut this thing down and get out by the end of this week. By Friday afternoon, And last night, there was a fire at the embassy Smoke and Houston Fire department responded. What do you think happened? Where was the fire? What were they doing? Hold on to that thought, because we'll wrap up this whole story with that next. Here on Schmidt, I

China to impose sanctions on Lockheed Martin over Taiwan arms deal

"China says it will impose sanctions on the American aerospace and defense company Lockheed Martin for agreeing to an arms deal with Taiwan. NPR's Emily Thing, reports. China did not specify what those sanctions would include. In 2015 Lockheed Martin did sell some civilian helicopters to China through its Sikorsky subsidiary. But Lockheed Martin another American defence companies are not able to sell most of their military technology to China anyways. Because of stringent US export controls that block such transactions.

Booms Sustainable Supersonic

"Supersonics and sustainability are two words. You rarely hear uttered together, but that's about to change. Boom supersonic is developing the first civil supersonic airliner of the twenty first century, and unlike the concord, it will be able to operate sustainably. Boom is building a one third scale demonstrator as a precursor to the overture, a seventy five seat mach two point two airliner it hopes will begin service later this decade. Senior Editor Guy North provides exclusive details about the boom project and a cover story that will appear in the June twenty nine edition of Aviation, week and space technology. He joins us here from Los Angeles so guy. What's the story? Joe, yeah well. It was It's been fascinating of course this whole idea of the renaissance, supersonic travel and You know we talked to area of course a couple of months ago and did a pretty good story about that evolving design We've seen that NASTAS X fifty nine low boom demonstrator is being assembled by Lockheed Martin right now in the skunkworks, so there's a lot of activity, but it goes. Boom boom, supersonic based in Colorado has been working for several years now on a design, which as you mentioned called the overture, and it's getting to the point now where the XP one demonstrator is kind of ready getting ready for prime time so that looking at rolling out this summer and putting into flight test next year. I should say by the way it's taken a lot longer than they or anybody else thought, but you know they're working their way through it and getting their. So how does the XP one demonstrator help with the development of the overture? Roy well good question in fact strangely enough. That's question number one that I put to Blake Shoal. WHO's the CEO of of boom and so I guess why not just let him tell us exactly what he told me. Right so the way XP one is it? Is it approving in flight? The key technologies we need sustainable, safe, economical, supersonic flight, and it had that you principally Amex materials and befall Trent, so using the statement of carbon fibre system that we would use them on overture, using the same design techniques where your ally in simulation of getting all the calibration day. in-flight Shit exactly how your models performed the real world, and then a similar approaches to high efficiency who supersonic intakes they can big difference, overall performance and it's. It's really important. You do this in hardware. Just in the wind tunnel installation because when you do when you do concept studies. Near you're not forced to solve all the problems. You can leave little bits of things. It unfinished assumed we get get the rest of the way there, but sometimes the last ten percent of work is ninety percent of the innovation really happens. Now of course, the the thing about the demonstrator is that it's also beginning to kickstart the supply chain as well a loads by and large a supply chain. That's probably going to be quite different when the when the production version comes out but I think one of the things that really is interesting is the fact that that's The supply chain is very interested in supersonics and getting more so particularly as they finding pressure from the classic at bussing, Boeing supply chains way, you know Boeing an episode of having their issues, so supply China's looking for other outlets and other avenues. And of course, one of the key parts that supply China's the engine. Nobody's going to go anyway without without a good engine boom on at the point yet of being up to say particularly where they all with that and where the selections but. In, this question, I asked I asked bike. You know what the situation was, so this is what he had to say about. This supply China on propulsion. And when we started bill six years ago, frankly people thought we were crazy and It was the this was a thing. That was some bad idea. An audible and that's that's that's really changed, and you see across the industry of writing efforts. Supersonics were credible. And when that? When that starts to get internalized the supply chain people. Stop thinking like well. Is this worth doing. Back out instead they start thinking what if this happens part of it? At that changes that really changes a lot of the conversations and if you are. A big piece of your business comes from widebody aircraft and the most profitable passengers during the wide bodies into supersonic. That, it's actually a bad thing if you don't have a supersonic

"Hello welcome to a very special podcast. I'm Jesse I'm sue and this is frank this weekend. We're talking to Dr Scott in the Wiki who is the lead. Rnd scientists over quantum spatial Some the work he's been doing But I of course we have a lot of newses to catch up on In fact there is no way we keep up because apparently everybody decided to release a press. Release this week. Yeah everybody my dog did too. Yeah I mean it's just ridiculous so these would be selected that yes these are. These are all right. We might and do to be more alert. Dogs is not any you know we it. It was more. It was not really spatial more than a spatial type of topic for spatial. Get off my lawn. But that's another. Yeah it was. It was spatial stuff but it wouldn't really the anyway. So let's get onto the news. First UP IS LLEGADO. Fcc Quagmire continues for the hundred twenty seventh year. At least. That's what feels like all right. So here's the latest and greatest update on this whole nonsense as we've been reporting last couple episodes. Fcc said Yep it's great go forward with it whole lot of people have come out of the woodwork. To Go on Jack it is not okay. Do not go forward. And there's been a formal petitions against the FCC to reverse decision to allow llegado to go forward this is based upon blocking the GPS. Now it's going to be the normal people you would expect the airline pilots association who have a big interest and GPS working correctly and accurately and not having anything messing it. Up Association Equipment Manufacturers Aviation Interests The radium corporation Lockheed Martin Trimble. I mean antibody has anything to do with. Gps saying no. This is a really really bad idea but the really compelling bit here that may make the FCC think twice a hope is thirty two US senators which is over half and indifference. Bipartisan It's it's under heads. Sorry it's not it's it's a third I'm sorry A third of US senators which is when it by half ballpark. A half is is on from each party. So that's a bipartisan Thing sorry I misspoke I postseason. This is why we don't do math in front of people that's right So anyway they've come out and said no this is probably a bad idea so hopefully the FCC takes this all under advisement and reverses its. I'm going to terrible decision to allow. Continue for it. I would really like the the only way this gets really properly. Fixed is if Congress does what Congress is not probably going to do given the current crises. That's going on. Is they need to make legislation about this and that would be very clear guidance. Fcc A WHAT WOULD. It wouldn't be allowed but until then we run into the situation where the FCC can contain to make decisions and reverse decisions were versus sessions. And it's just a nightmare and in another. Us government News items this week The Department of Commerce Has Actually issued new rules for a commercial. Remote sensing satellites the Satellite Systems And in this case removing a lot of restrictions and so a lot of the the changes and it's it's They had a couple of drafts out. the current set are much more streamlined and they are lifting restrictions on not everything But especially on systems and types of data that could be sold elsewhere so outside the United States. So the argument is that others can do it then A of those restrictions are removed. There's still going to be some restrictions And they actually are setting up a tier system the full set of rules when we actually started according to I had seen published out yet but Essentially there are a lot of other obligations related. To remote sensing is stuff that that have to be still met so Some restrictions are in place but Essentially if you've got a system that is Only producing a on enhanced data. That is the same as unenhanced. Data available from sources that don't have Or not under the jurisdiction of Department Congress in the US so foreign sources will be called Tier One and they're actually going to have lots of restrictions changed however there's tier two and three and that has to do with systems that don't actually have any competition necessarily outside. The United States are outside of commerce purview. Meaning they're like well. If you're still competition that that would you know hurt you then yes we could still regulate you And so some of the questions that came up with things. Sar Data Nighttime data I think certain types of infrared in and stuff that had been heavily restricted. And the other thing that's going to change is how long the restrictions when there are restrictions a can go for which I guess you The original two thousand six Regulations had Basically just said they stay until new regulations are legislation. Come along. I think the new set of rules actually has a time period. I think two to three years. Something like that where potential they can review those So if you want the full text sort of the full details There's a couple of links the show nuts to one of the articles that discuss this But I mean you know. There was a lot of excitement Around when this was announced but The full rule set still has some things that will restrict. It's not it's not. Let the wild west of by any means but A lot of that restriction that that was there at least for existing systems and systems that do sort of traditional stuff is now going to be a little bit easier to deal with.

Stimulating Simulator Stories

"Never had the three of us. Sit Down and nerd out about about flight simulation. Yeah I mean. It's one of the things that I think is a gateway drug for a lot of people I mean when you're a kid with a computer and You know you're looking for some gaming or some you know something cool to do. I mean flight Sims I think are are I think are as much a part of getting you know. Young people into Navy model airplanes were and still are. Yeah I I agree and you guys of no my My background priority. I spent eleven years at Microsoft working on the flight simulator series there subsequently got some weird biases and things but I was also been a lifelong user of Sims first. Ibm either came home. We bought the first First version one point. Oh flights them week that When that came out and I was. I was twelve going on thirteen when that happened. And here I am D- decades and decades later and I still enjoy them and it's It it's one of those things that it. It's not only refund from the aviation side but it's also to me always been interesting from the technology side to take these computers that we have on our desks in in our pockets and our briefcases and see what what they can do. Yeah I wouldn't ask you when you went to work at Microsoft was that Was that pretty cool? I mean going to work for a product that you Kinda knew already and had a you know certainly had a name for itself. I sent my wife An email and our into my first day because I've been at Microsoft a two or three years closer to four years actually for if I move to that team and I sent this email to her and it just said I am a pig. My job is slop never get there? That was back in ninety eight So got to work on some patches and supposedly stuff for flights to ninety eight then we rolled right into combat flights him in for the next several years. Sort of back and forth from combat. Flight Sim then back to the civilian one based on releases Worked as a test engineer which was really cool. It came from product support. Which meant you had to sit on the phone and try to help somebody solve a problem and then I switched to testing which just meant. You really didn't care about the solution. You just had to point out the problems and I'm good at that. I'm really judgmental. I'm picky but it can be a real jerk so So that was that was fantastic and worked from. He said the tail end of flights in ninety eight all the way through the last of FSX and a what we call DSP. What you now know is prepared by Lockheed Martin so yeah Great Times Yeah I think When I was a kid my parents had I think it was an IBM forty six In the early nineties and I only game that was on. That computer was gosh. She could help me with this. How was probably F S for? It was still wire frame graphics and it had the airplane Creator in the in the Red Baron combat similar. Oh sure yeah. So the yeah. They're the red baron was That was there from the very very beginning. You know the wire frame stuff. F S Four. That had the airplane creator. Had WHAT WE CALL IT? Sort of flat shading it was sort wire frame. It could support up to like sixteen colors of Aga time too so just starting to transition into something that was Sort of optionally wire frame or you can have some solid colors into it. Yeah that so. I always wonder how much that actually played into. You know I think. All three of us You know we say as far back as we remember we were airplane parts and I mean how your origin stories pretty obvious you know growing up at an airport But I think for my for me that that may definitely be a big part of that. I remember getting My my first flights actually wasn't regular flights him. It was combat flight simulator. And it was like you in Europe. He was European theater. Okay so that was the first one. Just yes he. F S One. Yeah Oh man. That was awesome like I remember. We downloaded that or loaded onto the computer and then a couple of buddies over and like we literally played that until like two in the morning and Just you know you died. It's my turn but What was he was the two guys that were with me? They weren't diehard airplane nuts. They thought this was like totally cool. And nobody had seen anything. Quite like that So it was really kind of interesting way to get someone. Maybe not a history buff. Not a Warburg buff but suddenly you know they were kinda rattling stuff off like oh no man you gotta go with the P fifty one you know and I'm like how you know. How do you know what is it was kind of interesting? Well you know. I think it's you know it confirms what we have said at least in private conversations time and time again that simulators almost any kind like this can. They can teach you know they can. Inspire people didn't get people excited about it. But you know before long. You're you're actually learning

Dragon Lady Heading Into the Future After Six Decades

"You give us a quick run through the the story about the upgrade yes Yeah Hi basically Lockheed Martin skunkworks as begun work on this Avionics Tech Refresh Program. They call it. It's a fifty million dollar. Usa Force investment in the Dragon Lady and as you mentioned sort of kind of almost hasn't really come out of nowhere but it ever see is part of an ongoing Refresh of the aircraft but mocks very dramatic new stage in that process and fundamentally. It's it's focused on improvements to the cockpit itself the avionics upfront the some Enhanced on board mission processing as well Emission computer and basically sort of getting to the guts of the aircraft both from systems and cockpit display. Perspective hasn't been touched in a long time. So it's quite intriguing because it's it kind of opens a new chapter for the airplane at a time when you know. It's obviously an old airplane but now there's a new breadth of life been breathed into it so stay. It's really only been a couple of years. Maybe only a few months since the air force was talking about getting rid of the U. Two. I mean I'm a bit confused what's happened here. Well as probably some of the people listening to this podcast with you to The longevity of the Youtube has been questioned for for years and years air force. I think going back to two thousand eight or two thousand nine Basically started a you know a campaign Internally to retire the U2 and shift You know high altitude. Isr Intelligence Surveillance and reconnaissance mission to the argue for the unmanned argue for which is another high altitude aircraft. Not Quite as big or as High altitude is you to but does the same mission Congress push back on the Air Force for several years And prevented the air force from from retiring the U2 and carrying out that plan and then In two thousand seventeen the air force finally came out and said okay. We're going to keep the U2 and we're going to keep the argue for we're GONNA fly both of them for the foreseeable future. There was no Inundate put on either of those fleets for the first time in a couple in several years at that point and and then things got a little murky in the in the most recent budget cycle. You know we started hearing over in the fall that the air force was looking at really deep cuts. Because at at you know. They're in this process where they're trying to generate savings out of what they've got right now and take that money by retiring aircraft and take that money and paying for next generation capabilities that they want to have in the force and in twenty thirty Am What we heard. Was that meant. They were going to retire the force and they were going to retire at least some of the youtube views within this five year planning cycle Strangely when the when the budget came out. That's actually what it said. That the Arche four-block Thirties Would be retired or the the block. Forty which is slightly different mission Would the Arche four block forty would would still continue to operate than it also said that I quote currently the Air Force plans to divest the Youtube in fiscal year. Two Thousand Twenty five that appeared in budget documents twice In the budget documents that came out back in February and it turned out When when presented with this information the Air Force said oops we goofed mistake. That's a Typo some of those type of appeared twice but They said in fact. The Youtube is still in the budget and fully funded through fiscal year. Two thousand five Now they didn't say anything about fiscal year. Twenty six So we don't know what happens after that But we do know that When the Air Force presented its fleets retirement. Plan to the combatant commanders. That they got a big pushback. We reported that back in January. That the combatant commanders said. That's way too much. We still need some of these aircraft. It wasn't just a youtube or argue for his other Platforms that were in the mix and they. They successfully lobbied. The Secretary of Defense is office to force the Air Force to put those aircraft back into the budget and it. It's possible. The Youtube was part of that. Based on what we saw in Texas documents themselves so guy so this upgrade I mean. It's it's fifty million to a lot of money but this is really the backbone of the airplane. They're refreshing isn't it? I mean this is the the whole. It's not just the company it's the whole data management data handling putting this open mission system wrapper around everything. So they can plug lots of things in with make it much easier to plug thing and they've already demonstrate some of that capability and exercises things. So what what's going on here? I mean are we seeing a shift in the role of the airplane away from its traditional sort of peering over borders to doing something a bit more. Ya think exactly the point. The point about the this is really like you laying the track really for the other foundations for a new capability which is obviously tied in with the fundamental. Sr Role of the Youtube to start with but takes advantage of the fact that it's a high flying aerial platform with With persistence and not ability to be high in the Sky Upright like a a node in in the in the battlespace management of the future in the the advanced battle management system that the force. This idea it's really playing to that so it's important to remember also that this Tech refresh is part of a bigger skunkworks program for the Youtube which we've found out about which Lockheed described It's cold the dragon star at stars. Akron an acronym for Senses Technology and Avionics fresh. But it's part of this. Pathway and the key elements is this new open mission systems standard which the new processor At least part of which is Lockheed's Einstein box this enterprise mission computer to the second standard That's going to be an open missions. open mission system stunted Processor from the start and in fact The U to upgrade the initial one. It's going to be flight tested next year. And by the end of next year the basically Lockheed saying it will be the first The first of a compliant fleets of OMS aircraft in the air force inventory. It'll be the first of the open mission systems complying aircraft in the Thai fleet. So they kind of like saying. This is not only a pathway gateway really to a new future but obviously also a a testbed. You know this. The Youtube with this open mission system will be able to explore all of the kind of new processes and systems and intelligence assets. The which will Abm Ashville requires part of this open systems.

Success While Flying a Desk at Home

"Let's get into flight simulation so I have a question for you. First and foremost do you want to have infinite meaningful practice that can help most aspects of your flying during this time while you're at home a bit of a rhetorical question of course you would love to have that infinite meaningful practice while you're at home who wouldn't want that in simulation can open up that door for you so the goal through this process of perhaps implementing flight simulation into your at home study. You're at home. Time right now is to build a simple ineffective home simulator. I'm also going to talk about some ways that you can use that home simulator Q. Keep your skills going to refresh you build skills even which is a little bit tricky without an instructor onboard but there still are ways. So let's talk through that a little bit. I think the biggest thing that people have a question about first and foremost is gear. What do you actually need to have a flight simulator to make a flight simulator happen so I'm going to get through that a little bit? Now you can go to my website. Angle OF ATTACK DOT com go to the blog area. And you'll see this particular episode there and I'll also put it on the Youtube episode of the links to some of this gear that I'm recommending and then you can go there and perhaps purchase some of these things. Okay so this is a place that you can go and get started. This is really more of a gift. Started thought for those of you that haven't even Built a simulator yet. I WanNa keep it really simple. I don't think you need to go crazy. I'm talking about low cost high effective Or High Efficiency Simulator. That we can just get right now. Set up some controls and get going so first and foremost you need a simple gaming computer. That term gaining is really important because the video card and some of the other hardware that you need to run. The simulator is more in line with a gaming computer than it is any other type of computer so there are some affordable options out there. You can get some laptops and desktops that are already built You can get them on Amazon. He can get them from. Dell and HP that are fairly affordable reason. Why I start there and just say that you can get them basically off. The shelf is because I feel like most of you pilots aren't going to want to go out there and become these ultra nerdy fight. Simmers that Bill the cockpit in their spare bedroom. I know that you want to get something off the shelf and get started right away in. So that's more the direction. This goes a gaming computer helps. Do that can be a laptop or a desktop. You may already have something like that that works and that's going to be what you're looking for overall. I'd like to keep the cost of all of this below a thousand dollars and I'm talking like the computer. The peripherals and controls was trying to keep everything under a thousand dollars For the entire setup okay is definitely possible you can go above and beyond that. I have a simulator here in my office. That is very very nice That is more in the three thousand dollar range but it is way too nice for the average consumer. I mean this is more of like a show piece for the material that I create Then it is something just to practice at home in half proficiency so ah gaming laptop or desktop then we get into the flight controls. There are many options out there where you buy them. They literally connect up with. Usb They clamp on your desk and and they just plugged right into the simulator essentially the simulator detects those. And then you can get flying right away you can go into the simulator. Pick your airplane and essentially the controls will work. Sometimes there's a little bit of a calibration thing you have to go through but that's fairly straightforward the for the most part these flight controls are plug and play now. I think that you should get all three flight controls if you possibly can talking yoke throttle and pedals. This isn't investment for the future as well where even when we're outside of this pandemic time you can You can use these flight controls for your continued proficiency. So you're going to be talking in the three hundred to four hundred dollar range at the bottom end and you could even go above that if you want to invest in even nicer flight controls. I actually use the cheaper stuff. I think it works just fine. I don't feel like I need Realistic controls like having the airplane because an airplane as an airplane a simulator simulator. And I'd rather you know use that money more effectively somewhere else so they have really nice yolks. You can get recommend one of those again in the description on the blog Rudder pedals are very helpful because I think as a pilot need to connect your mind your feet. So let's not forget about those rudder pedals Somewhat eating suggests that if you have to just use a joystick with the rudder on there and everything else throttle on there that can work to. I don't think that's the end of the world if you just get a joystick. That's that's just fine. I can even recommend one again in the description but I do think that investing in a yoke throttle pedals For those of you that are Are Flying Fixed wing airplanes for training purposes Which is going to be most of you that. That's that's going to be your best setup. The fight controls. I like their logitech. They have both a yoke and a throttle that come in the same package. And then you buy the pedals separately again. You'll see that link the simulator self so the software Mac or PC can run plane. I actually prefer x plane right now because it looks really good just outside the ball out of the box like you loaded up and everything looks nice. And it runs really well Multi types of computers there with Mac and PC and they have just everything you need right out of the box. If you WANNA get crazy and going by a third party airplane then you can do that by going to Going to some of these other software developers that Creator planes that you can install into explain? So there's that whole side market we're not GONNA get too much into but it is interesting that your particular airplane you can get a a model for it and and basically fly what you're flying now in explain so explain is a really good one. Nasa when I recommend right now there is a new one coming out from Microsoft soon is not out yet. I don't know if it's going to be the end of this year with us out. It does look really nice. That's all I really know about it. and then there is prepared. Which is Lockheed Martin? Lockheed Martin actually bought the former rights to the the previous Microsoft simulator and all of its code and they built on top of that they've made a nice simulator but I don't feel it really looks that great and operates that great right outside the box. I X plane is a much better out of the box package And that's definitely the way to go all right so you set up your simulator. You've got a desktop or laptop whether you purchase it or already had one those kind of gaming machine you've got your flight controls you plug those in you. You downloaded the simulator. You can just get get it as a download and you've install it on your machine. So now what? How do you actually work on this in At your home. What should you work on? So one of the biggest things that simulator have an advantage on is instrument work so obviously just being of the stay right there. The instruments that come with the airplane that comes in the simulator and manipulating. The controls is very very helpful for instrument. You can set up the weather and so it's IMC outside the airplane. That will always always always be an effective tool with the simulator that you have purchased so instrument is a fantastic thing to do And a good way to keep proficiency even if legally you can't log the time on your home simulator. It keeps you proficient in that. Craft all right but getting outside the box of instrument. Because I think it's pretty clear to most pilots that a home simulator would be good for that in good for that long term thinking about using this for everything Or every type of flying with things like emergency procedure. So how long has it been since four your airplane? You've taken those emergency procedures and you've really memorized them. So that if something were to come up. You don't even need to look at the checklist. You can just run through those emergency checklists as a memory item. Make sure you've done everything you can. And then you move to the checklist. This is a really good time to get stuff like that down to practice practice practice. You can even simulate engine. Fires you can simulate an engine out and you could ride the airplane all the way down to your your landing spot of choice your best lining spot of choice and that is something that you can't replicate in real airplane so using simulators for Maybe some Reality or virtual reality based things that That they're good at is is pretty

Singapore Airshow dealt Coronavirus blow

"We're in Singapore which is quite possibly the most unusual escher in our collective memories We are of course hit during a week. Where the corona virus has had an impact on Travel plans for those this coming. From China that would traditionally come to the show but also from others in the region including From from further further away including major exhibitors exhibited who have been somewhat nervous about attending the show. Let's talk about this a little bit. WHAT SUV attendance rates? Let's have we seen a decline with the major exhibitors. That didn't show up. Well I mean obviously the numbers significantly down we could see that for for ourselves. Almost immediately. I remember two years ago. This show it was like sort of piccadilly circus in the Russian to get through the the channels between Shell as and the exhibit will this year. There was no problem. That's all it was very easy. The other point was when we went up to the the Static on there was a lot of span space on the ramp The biggest hall of course. Being the absence of Boeing's ego demonstrator triple seventeen hundred which there were hoping to bring to the show in fatted sets off. They go to Tokyo But turned around when they Threat level was raised to orange just on just started so sadly significantly impacted of as far as I could. I'd say anyway. Well the defense side you know. It was a huge impact. Lockheed Martin Raytheon Northrop Grumman when all stayed home you know there was people from the Russian companies here but it was really a skeleton crew The Chinese accompanies were of course banned from coming obviously. Didn't stop the August. I demonstration team which made a surprise appearance last week with their j ten fighters so Yeah but there was a huge impact on offense but thinking about. That's a attending major astro since I think mid-nineteenth or so and it's the first ever that onto where nas been stat not stop stood in a single life right station not have security not whatever whatever that is we could have been empty. So that's it could be for Saturday's coming of the organizers. Say A set that eight percent of exhibitors contras but it was mostly powder the tooth because the nice two percent that did that did show up showed up with a much smaller group of people search. So for instance Abbas there but they sent a few people that they would so so. It's been depressing way unusual night and in and this huge challenges ahead full for aviation as a whole but particularly aviation in the region given the impact this is going to have on on on uncommissioned airlines yeah region. I mean if you looked at some figures here Check some days of the week or so so Normally the Chinese airlines around to tweet sixteen to eighteen thousand twice a day They've deccan the operation between five and six thousand seven days in the past week. So that's about a third of their schedule. Financial initial impact huge Don't forget there's a lot of airlines. That are highly dependent on Chinese Traffic Korean. CARIOCAS areas the airlines in Thailand which kind of missing Derek Young Group of international travelers. And so we've seen the fallout of this. Yeah will be casualties. On the way in the next two months people tend to compare where this SARS in twenty two thousand three but I actually tend to disagree with the thing that a lot of sense just because China's become so much bigger than they operate. Seven hundred aircraft craft now is four thousand so much bigger share of the building chapter nor competitions and in recovery phase face will be will be

Employers Who Are Trying To Train Their Employees

"Here what's going out of our guest Lauren Weber of the Wall Street journal here talk about employers that are trying to train employees Lauren thank you for joining us thanks for having me Warren so I know that a lot of companies in recent years in order to incentivize people to work there Dave instituted you know your tuition repayment programs some companies are even sending people directly to college but a number of companies are looking for additional certifications and training beyond that and they're finding it a little bit challenging how come well this year mainly with the fact that the skills required for so many jobs are changing rapidly so in the past you might have been able to get a college degree in a way thank you for you know amount of your career you have the basic skills you need it now with digital technologies which are part of just about every job out there people need to learn more and more skilled more and more kinds of technology and that requires more training kind of a constant series of training so employers who you know maybe typically you know if you have a generous employer maybe you had a tuition reimbursement plan our tuition assistance plan they're looking now to expand those programs beyond a traditional college degree or associates degree to cover more short term certificates and program can you give some examples of us some of the short term certificates and programs that are out there that companies are trying to figure out if they're worth the cost sure a couple of the companies I spoke to our home depot and Lockheed Martin actor home depot I spoke to the head of their benefits program he was saying you know we had a brainstorming session trying to think about what technology our customers might be using the future one thing they came up with was three D. technology the three D. printing I mean and so the idea of being well they might need to have the thirtieth working in stores you know how to operate a three D. printer help customers with that they're trying to figure out okay where do we send our employees to learn about technology and it's a difficult process because you know it's very different from a college program that might be accredited by an outside third party you know how do you find what is a worthwhile program one great thing is that there's been an explosion options that have arisen for training partly because companies smart companies out there see that there's a market opportunity right if we can figure out some way to deliver training company that needed an individual that need it for their jobs there's money to be made there on the other hand what this means and this was the headline for the story is employers are swimming in option and they're trying to figure out how do we find the programs that are worth while no one critic I cited and this is where the idea for the story came from and I've been obsessed with that a report came out from an organization called credential engine which counted up all of the post secondary credentials that are available in the United States but more than seven hundred and thirty eight thousand that includes everything from a PhD or a law degree here will you know I I additional baggage that you might get from taking a half hour class on learning seven hundred and thirty eight seven hundred thirty eight thousand yeah it's an enormous market place how did anybody make that that that's very complicated right now so I guess one of the questions that I have on that is let's say that you're someone who gets one of these certificates who knows what it's for I don't particularly whatever it's for if you try to change jobs what are the odds that that specific certificate then is needed by your new employment are we going to be in a situation where you're constantly having to just be picking up certificates depending on what employer you work for well I mean that's part of the issue too it's something players will recognize a certain certificate others won't have done that research or you know we won't see it as a valuable credential I think this is all this will take a long time to break out but in terms of you know will you need to be constantly doing that some skills are more transferable than others if you learn a program if you're if you're interested in crossword development and you learn a programming language chances are multiple employers will use that or that knowledge will be valuable for you in some form you know if your learning something that's the only applicables to one employer and sometimes companies do have their own internal certifications and training you know that's less transferable but a lot of these are killed you know I mean the credentials that are included in that count might be everything from you know like I said there there are half hour digital badges you can take on how do you dress can help with business casual dress yes I like some of them are very broad others are very narrow and technical so you know summer more transferable than others learn to pre sheet you joining us and thanks for all your research into this thank

And that the construction of the wall is quote essential to the national defense and courts should defer to the president in interpreting what the national defense means. And here are the five billion dollars in military projects that we are shifting funds away from. If that happens as a as a result of that you will have.

Can you come up with five billion dollars worth of constructing new basis new munitions new equipment easily? Yeah. I I would think you could. But you're gonna wanna do it in such a way that doesn't take five billion dollars out of General Dynamics pocket right out of Lockheed Martin because those companies are not going to be like taking it away from you know, John Q public, you know, landowner on the border.

And I am so I'm going to read a little bit more of it. It says in the event of a declaration by the president of national emergency that requires or may require use of the armed forces.

Speaking to Fox News Sunday's Chris Wallace gates, said companies like Facebook and Google should cooperate with regulators to determine what they can. And can't do with user information. The government should be talking to these companies. About what they do. There's nothing in appropriate. I was naive. I didn't have an office in Washington DC. I thought that was a good thing. And I even bragged about it. I later came to regret that there's a push for federal laws to regulate privacy with tech companies like Facebook and Google facing scrutiny for their gathering and handling of users personal information.

If you go on, you know, past each other on a highway, but when you're criss crossing an intersection.

I mean had massive subsidies from Great Britain, and France, why wasn't a commercially viable because of the sonic, boom. This is why the FAA wouldn't allow the Concorde to fly from New York to LA could only fly over oceans where the sonic booms wouldn't matter. But now NASA is given a contract to Lockheed Martin to have them build a supersonic jet that doesn't create sonic booms if they figure that out you'll be able to fly from New York to LA and get there in about an hour.

Or looking up at the, stars anywhere, for that matter Have you thought about the story that's been floating around this week about life on Mars and that NASA has well many. Space agencies might have more details about life. That actually exists right now. That they don't want to, tell us about we'll talk to a guy who's researching that he says they have it. He knows what it is and he'll tell us coming. Up on coast to coast AM in just a few minutes let's do a little, crypto news from the Daily Mail this story is is like it's so freaky But at the same, time there's sort of a little happy ending on it so. I know a lot of people are scared of spiders I'm not particularly bugged one way, or another but they? Have, identified for the first time spiders that are capable of jumping over an average size human being jump over six feet high. And land on the other side of the. Human these spiders are a. Rare type of Iraq did, and they never before been seen in England they have been known to exist on other. Continents in fact I think every continent except and Dr. Takata has jumping spiders is just jumpings relative Are they gonna are. They gonna jump like LeBron, like Michael like really by some sky or do. They jump like Will Perdue there's an old reference but do. They like like your average kind of dorky, white guy center I don't know how to phrase it other than that well they have found these, spiders can jump six feet and they were recently discovered by somebody at the whole Kroft. Moss nature reserve in Cheshire in England now here's, the good news so that's like enough to. Give you nightmares here's maybe this is good news. The the, spiders that can jump, six feet are about the size of a match stick head So Jump out of a tree and wrestled to the ground like a. Panther so I was, like, well I was looking at this story and they have this really big spider in the Daily Mail. Story and then we actually find the size of. It you. Realize But let spiders blown up considerably because it's really it's just not that big however something that. Is that big is is from news from the Kennedy Space Center about a massive Celinda, habitat I think he can find the story coast to coast, AM, dot com, that one day may house up to four astronauts as they make their trek into deep space Lockheed Martin gave a first look at one of. These habitats on Thursday, of, this week and so it's beginning a lot of play the giant well it you know it kind. Of looks sorta reminded me a little bit of. That cylinder Was it Star Trek four with the cylinder that was coming, I think it was four that's one of the, whales right were they coming to San Francisco so it's kinda what looks like Lockheed is, one of six contractors for this it's living quarters, for up to four people. And, NASA awarded a combined sixty five million to build a habitat prototype by the end of the year the. Agency will then review the proposals to reach a better understanding of the. Systems and interfaces that need to be in place to facilitate living in deep space over a. Period really we're talking about many years which brings about an interesting ongoing conversation for SCI, fi fans and I may be the not the best one, but, I read, a lot and and I find that whole notion about reproducing in space We have to have the first birth in space Or at least human birth we, don't know what microbes are up to or anything but we there has, been the, first, is I, understand it and I'm you know this I, guess is like the dirty part of the. Show but people have already had, sex in space as part of a scientific experiment I don't think it was spontaneous thing I don't think it was Passionate thirty thousand miles up or, anything but it was it was, planned. That way and they they they did it. For scientific reasons whatever I hope, it was good for them anyway and so that part's been done, but they've never had a pregnancy in space that I know of, but and they have yet to have obviously. A, birth in space but that could really be on the table now if we're talking about sending people and we start to have the prototypes for these. Missions to go out for years. And and we'll see what happens I. Know that here on earth There's a weird baby boom going on not far, from me so seated press is reporting this. I'm, in Phoenix and this story comes out of Mesa where at a suburban hospital here outside of Phoenix sixteen intensive care nurses recently discovered that they are. All pregnant at the same time The banner, a desert medical center in Mesa and they joked in a press conference on Friday That there must be something in the water and I know that's a common joke but isn't that like. A a SCI fi space nightmare in and of itself because we know what it would, be there would, have to be in the water, for them for sixteen women to get pregnant simultaneously And and I just. Think that you know I just I I. Hope like thank God that just an expression and it doesn't, actually happen but it it will be, interesting to see what happens when you think about it sixteen women all in the same department all having to take. Maternity leave at the same time I hope they are thinking ahead on that archaeologists have discovered Thirty two hundred year old cheese in an option to I, can't remember where I got this story so I'm not trying to steal it l. Just relate as I read it that, scientists are analyzing the cheese sample believed quote to be. Probably the most ancient archaeological solid residue of. Cheese ever found I hadn't, even occurred to me that there would. Have been others before this but apparently, there have been this is now. The oldest it was a study that was published last month in a journal called chemistry And there is evidence of a. Bacterium in the cheese that could cause a deadly disease if somebody ate it And yet other people around the world or volunteering. To eat the cheese The, thirty two, hundred year old cheese a Cairo university excavation team on earth the cheese From the tomb. Of a guy who had been the mayor of, Memphis it was his final resting place it was built in the thirteenth, century BC quote we do not have much. Information on, what, the taste could be said Enrico Greco the lead author on. The paper he, said quote. We know it was made mostly from sheep and goats milk but for me it's hard it's, really hard to imagine a specific flavor, other than Although they don't specify this I wonder. Whether because it, was found. In an Egyptian tomb whether it was bandage wrap cheese Which is one of my favorites I don't know if you have that scrape. One thing we can no I think if it safely enough of its adoption cheese are probably has a lot of preservatives so maybe, why it's lasted all this, while some people are talking about trying to recreate the cheese, and make it a taste, sensation I have to say I'd be if as long as it's not. Thirty two hundred year old cheese and it doesn't have any of the deadly bacteria in an IB that'd be willing to try it Maybe we can find.
