Fresh update on "mars" discussed on All Things Considered

"This is all things considered from NPR news I'm wanna summers. And I'm Mary Louise Kelly. As former president Donald Trump's explanation continues to evolve for why he had classified documents at his Mar-a-Lago home coming up on a year and 7 months after he left The White House, so too have the questions evolved about his handling of those documents. In recent days, Trump has argued that his lawyers were fully cooperating and turning over the material, then he argued that FBI agents who searched his film bus to planet stuff now, his team claims that Trump had a standing order to declassify documents. We're here to help us fact check that last claim is Glen gerstel. He was the top lawyer at the National Security Agency until he stepped down in 2020. Welcome. Thank you. Delighted to be here. So we know a sitting president has the power to declassify documents. This latest explanation from Trump's team boils down as far as I can tell to that if he, as a sitting president, chose to remove papers from the Oval Office, chose to, I don't know, take them upstairs to his residence, that they were automatically declassified. Do you buy that? It's awfully hard to accept that for both legal reasons and almost more importantly practical reasons. We've had ever since the United States introduced a very detailed system of classifying our nation's secrets going back to the time of president Truman right after World War II. We've had a very, very specific procedure for how we classify the nation's secrets. And then also very importantly how we declassify them. And that process, which is written down in both statutes and executive orders of the presidents that are binding on both Republican and democratic presidents say that there has to be a process. Someone needs to make an affirmative decision as to what kind of damage would result to national security, if any, as a result of a declassification, the agency that's involved that created the information in the first place has to be consulted. They get to say, gee, this would be a problem for us or know it wouldn't. And then it has to be memorialized and recorded and that information disseminated out to the rest of the government. Why? Because if another agency, the next morning, got a request from the public or under a freedom of information act to release the information, they would have to know what has been declassified. And if we have a situation in which someone, whether it's a Republican president or a democratic president, doesn't make a difference, says that whenever I go somewhere or go upstairs or reach the third floor of the stairs, documents that happen to be in my hand or just declassified and we don't know which ones they are. We can't figure out later on which ones they were. That obviously is not going to be a practical system for preserving the nation's secrets. This is the if a tree falls in the forest, does anyone hear it kind of argument we're heading for? Exactly. We invite you to take a step back with me. And consider legally, is it, is it even relevant whether Trump declassified these papers or didn't. And I'm asking because the search warrant from our Lago referenced three potential crimes that the FBI is investigating three statues, not one of which depends on whether these documents were classified. Does it matter? Actually, it doesn't. And I think what's listed in the search warrant is fascinating both for what it includes and what it doesn't include. What it doesn't include interestingly and the search warrant is limited to three specific statutes, and the one that it didn't cover is a statute that makes it a crime to knowingly remove or retain classified documents. That statute wasn't listed. Why? I suspect that's because the Department of Justice wanted to be on extremely solid ground when they undertook this search warrant. And of course, there were also aware that maybe the president had claimed he had declassified this stuff. So they didn't list that section there because they wanted to list three other statutes that have nothing to do with whether a document is declassified. One is a provision of the espionage act that relates to the mishandling of something called national defense information. Not quite the same as classified documents similar. And the other two statutes relate generally to mishandling of official government documents. Nothing to do with whether they've been declassified. They could be as declassified as possible, and you might still be guilty of a crime under these other two statutes, which relate to just mishandling of government records and storing them improperly. So if someone who has handled a lot of classified documents, what question is foremost in your mind now? Where does this go? I think the key thing that we need to recognize is that we should try to step back and divorce this case from the politics and the emotion for a second and simply say that if the Department of Justice was faced with a situation in which someone some former government employee, whether high ranking or low ranking, was known to be in possession of government documents, including ones that are apparently top secret. What would the government do? And in this case, the government would, in every case, say, let's try to get them back. We can't run the risk that they're in an insecure place that perhaps Chinese spies or some other adversary would try to get them. And they would ask for them back and the government has a strong reason to do so and a deep history of doing that almost without regard to who's involved. And this effort, first they asked for them back, then they issued a subpoena, and then finally they undertook a search to seize the documents, is exactly what I would expect the government to do. The question of whether there's a subsequent prosecution is a separate issue and the Department of Justice will weigh all the facts and make a decision on that. But the step one is getting documents back so that the our national security is no longer at risk. Glenn gerstell, thank you. Thank you. He was general counsel for the National Security Agency from 2015 until 2020. The novelist Salman Rushdie is now 75. But for the last 33 of those years, he's lived with the fatwa that called for his death. Issued by the supreme leader of Iran at the time. Today, he is off a ventilator and slowly recovering, but still in critical condition. He was repeatedly stabbed during an onstage discussion last Friday and upstate New York. Iran has denied involvement, but a spokesman for its foreign ministry says, it doesn't blame anyone for the attack, except rushdie himself and his supporters. So what exactly did Salman Rushdie write that would provoke an attempt on his life more than three decades after he wrote it? Let's bring in Robin Wright, she's covered her on for decades, and she wrote about this case for The New Yorker, Robin, thank you for being here. Great to be with

So first of all, you have written many, many big bestselling books to New York Times number one bestsellers. You were the reason you were on this program the last time, you were grievously persecuted through the Mueller investigation. They put you through hell, we talked about that when you were on the program last time. We're living in dark times. What happened the other day in Mar-a-Lago is just the latest example of it. So I want to talk to you about your new book. But give us an update on everything that has happened. I mean, there's so much evil every day, every week, every month that you can't remember what happened a year ago, what happened two years ago. I mean, the Mueller investigation, I forgot about that because so much else has happened. Well, first of all, it's a great pleasure to be back with you. When I was here last, I thought I was going to prison. And it was your shows. I think made a huge impact. And I can't tell you how much I appreciate it. I'm astonished in thrilled and thankful to God that that might be the case. Well, I think my faith got me through and I deeply appreciate your program. We need more Christian programming. My faith was really the bedrock of what I would not lie to give the mule or people what they wanted to keep Trump out of prison. And they wanted me basically to affirm the Russian collusion theory, which I knew to be nonsense and did not have a part in. I thought had ties to Julian Assange. It goes on and on.

Judicial Watch's Chris Farrell Breaks Down the FBI Raid

"Let's jump straight in with what you guys have done in judicial watch. So allegedly, the raid executed by 30 FBI agents, they didn't leave the warrant there, or at least they didn't show the supporting documentation. The lawyers had to I'm not going to disclose who you spoke to. But the lawyers were in a tough position, were they not in Mar-a-Lago? Yeah, I have informed opinion and my informed opinion is that there was a showdown of demanding the warrant be produced. The agents just wanted to go in, raid the building, and the lawyers had to say, excuse me. Well, let's be clear. I mean, when they want to raid a search warrant rate is conducted, the objective is shocking awe. They wish to disorient and subdue the target environment. Who's ever there? And they're good at doing it. And even, you know, somebody who's in anticipation of it or is a seasoned person, there's an effort to suppress the environment so they can take control of it. And they're very good at it. Nonetheless, the sylvan obligation to provide the warrant, more importantly, on Tuesday, late afternoon early evening, we filed a motion in the southern district of Florida to get to the affidavit. So a warrant is an authorization to go violate your Fourth Amendment, right? So document that underneath has to have something which supports. And so the supporting document is an affidavit. Normally by a supervisory special agent of the United States. Correct. And it explains this is our investigation. This is our target. This is what we're looking for. We have reason to believe a crime has occurred or is occurring. So in this case, it would have to be because it's about classified documents. Somehow a crime has been committed. To those documents correct. Or is about to be imminently committed on Mar-a-Lago. Otherwise, you can't do it. Correct.

That was the attorney general Merrick Garland, who was 30 minutes late to a press engagement that was announced just over an hour ago. No questions less than 5 minutes long. It couldn't be better time for us to have in studio the guests we do have a man with years of counter intelligence experience under his belt in the U.S. Army now director of investigations and research for the people who have been central to uncovering the truth about what happened in Mar-a-Lago. He is Chris Farrell. I'm Sebastian gorka. This is America first Chris. I wasn't expecting much, but I wasn't expecting him to celebrate the counter terrorism work of members of the Department of Justice. Was anything substantive said in the last three minutes by the attorney general? A lot of hollow platitudes for sure, but one good thing was identified. And that is he claimed that he personally authorized approved the search warrant being a submitted to the judge. So now we know a responsibility lies. And so any other finger pointing and second guessing set that aside, Merrick Garland now owns this and it looks like he's going to eat it. This is for him to hang with and to be he's claimed that he's claimed the responsibility. It is his. We'll talk

Since I became attorney general, I have made clear that the Department of Justice will speak through its court filings and its work. Just now, the Justice Department has filed a motion in the southern district of Florida to unseal a search warrant and property receipt relating to a court approved search that the FBI conducted earlier this week. That search was a premises located in Florida belonging to the former president. The department did not make any public statements on the day of the search.

A 33-Year Veteran of the FBI Reacts to the Mar-a-Lago Raid

"A new book coming out called the fall of the FBI. How a once great agency became a threat to democracy. The author is Thomas J baker, and he joins us right now to help us unpack what the heck happened to the Federal Bureau of Investigation and he himself has over 33 years of investigative and management experience as an FBI special agent. And he has an incredible Wall Street Journal op-ed, which says whistle starts to blow at the FBI. I have so much to ask him. I'm so glad he's with us right now. Thomas baker, welcome to the program. Charlie, good to be with you. Thank you. And congratulations on the book. So let's just start here. I'll be very plain and blunt. I've lost total and complete faith in the Federal Bureau of Investigation. I believe it's become politicized and at that actors are not removed. In fact, some people believe rightfully so and I agree with them. The FBI is actually being used against citizens. Is that a bridge too far as someone who served in the bureau for 33 years? I know it's not a bridge too far. And a lot of people share those sentiments, my take is a little more precise, slightly different than what you just expressed. I think what's happened, the root of what's happened is a change in culture at the bureau that begun began on the director Mueller, bob Mueller. And a lot of these bad actors is the term you just use, have been removed that the bad actors you can name them all in the cave and call me et cetera from before and even more recently with the gymnast case and other, they keep getting fired. They keep getting dismissed. And unfortunately, current director ray and others around him keep pointed to that and say, well, we're getting rid of the bad apples. We got rid of the bad apples. And my contention is they're not looking at the underlying program problems, excuse me, the cultural change that took place beginning under Robert Mueller's leadership.

Because you monitor trends, you monitor what clicks are getting, what right now are people focusing on. This is kind of an interesting, by the way, for our audience, a non legacy media way of tracking public opinion, Kane. What are people focusing on right now? All right. Well, yeah, that's a good question. See if P nation has been fired up about what happened in Mar-a-Lago, obviously. And I'll get into some of the specifics of that. But I wanted to talk a little bit about that traffic chart that you put up. It's insane. You talk about it in the days of the woke left. So from the beginning, part of the point of CFP was never to be able to be canceled, which meant I didn't develop social media at all. There's no Facebook page. We do have a rock and Twitter feed now that Spencer Neil is running. He's one of the guys who works for me. He used to work for Washington examiner, was a political reporter. And he has that feed rocking. Well, we practically never linked to stories on citizen free press. So there was no sort of social media brand. And part of why the traffic blows people away is there's a huge number of conservatives who have still never heard of this site. They all know breitbart, they all know gateway. They all know Davy wire. They all know a huge number of these sites just because they have large social media presences.

You have a former president, I would argue that presidents should have certain concessions that other people don't have, especially if they're cooperating. Two months ago, they came and they wanted documents. They took certain documents from president Donald Trump. He was cooperative. He's not going to flee. It's not like he's a flight risk. He's not like he's at risk from them. They need an exigency to go in and execute the warrant fast enough so he won't destroy evidence.

"Our theme today is resolved the disgraced FBI must be defunded and disbanded. What do you think? I think it needs a serious reorganization. It is disgraceful what has happened to the FBI and the Department of Justice and I think this really started under Barack Obama. We saw the deep politicization of the Department of Justice and FBI under Obama and it metastasized when Trump was president and all of those Obama hard partisans had burrowed into senior career positions and from those positions from the deep state. They waged war on president Trump and now under Joe Biden. It's gotten even worse. And I think the crowning disgrace for DoJ and the FBI was 40 FBI agents sent in to raid president Trump's home in Mar-a-Lago. It was nakedly partisan and political. And I got to say, you know, you think back to what Richard Nixon tried to do to the Department of Justice and the federal government, Barack Obama and Joe Biden have succeeded in doing, which is turning them into political and partisan weapons to target their enemies.

He was late. It was quick. He wouldn't take questions. He didn't want to be there. This is kind of not going in the direction the department had wanted. I feel like and now it's sort of clean up time. And the whole thing seems like really poorly thought out and executed. Like, what do they think was going to happen? Do they really think they could do something like this? And people are not going to stand up and say, wait a minute. We want more transparency than that. This is kind of absurd. We know there's a long history of people not being harassed for things like having classified documents, particularly ex presidents, and yet now you choose to come down on former president Trump like this in a spectacular way.

No worries. And in fact, do you remember what we were told at the time when it all started coming about? Everybody was telling us, you know, the president is the one who declassifies material. Now what's really odd about this, I didn't know that. I'd like to think I'm fairly well informed, but I didn't know that. And I can remember, as it was being reported, sort of kind of.

"I have to say even for you, like, solid calm professionals. This is a lot this week. I mean, just those of us that aren't lawyers are like, oh my God. And now Scott Perry's phone. I mean, talk to us about I don't even know where to start with the legal significance of this week. But go ahead. So maybe one way of looking at it, this is probably the most boring way, but you know me, I'm boring. Yeah. That's what we love about it. Is that today is 89 days before the midterm election, Mar-a-Lago was searched. 91 days before the midterm election. And DoJ notoriously tries to go dark on politically complicated investigations. At a period of time sufficiently far enough out from an election to avoid any allegation that they're influencing the election. You know, the ghost of Jim Comey sort of lingers over that whole thing. I'm glad you got to him before I did. Yes. Early. If DoJ had stuff to do, it makes sense that we would see it happening this week. And so now they've got 90 days to quietly sort through what they obtained at Mar-a-Lago. We have no idea what that is. And figure out, you know, let's just put this on the table early. Two things could be going on at Mar-a-Lago, assuming the reporting is correct. This is about national security classified papers. One is there could be a criminal investigation going on. These cases are rarely prosecuted, but there's some factors here that suggest that there would be good reason to investigate and consider that. Possibly more importantly are the national security implications. And whenever you have a spill of classified evidence, you've got to figure out what's involved in the spill and whether or not there is risk to national security. So, you know, we've got a former president who notoriously sat at dinner at Mar-a-Lago and sort of crowdsourced advice on how to handle a Korean missile launch. There's no telling what he would do with papers. The important thing is that people need to get people government needs to understand what's happened and what the risks are.

"Hide your wine banks. Good morning. Good morning, Stephanie Miller. How are you? I'm very fine and dandy on this historical day. I just have to read this part of the statement from the office of the 45th president for you. He said, what is the difference between this and Watergate? Where operatives broke into the Democrat National Committee here in reverse Democrats broken in the home of the 40th president of the United States. Your thoughts don't want base. Like that lamp. That was my thought. When I first heard that, I was actually on air as this was breaking. And I burst into hysterical laughter because it's so outrageous. I know that some people may think that they are only people who listen to Donald Trump because operatives did not break into his house and Democrats didn't break into his house. FBI agents had a search warrant to buy a judge, finding probable cause that there was evidence of a crime at Mar-a-Lago, and therefore they had a legal reason for going there. So it's not at all like a burglary and the night by former CIA agents were part of the bay of pigs invasion of Cuba. No, it's not at all like that. This is actual law enforcement. That's how law enforcement works in America.

The once little known Reese's is suddenly on the fast track to national success. Shortly after, Hershey's first Kit Kat adds air and turned the British bar into a national bestseller. To kick it. To what? Two Kit Kat chocolate bars, one for me and one for you. Who? Me? Sure. Outside, it's delicious chocolate. Inside it's light and crispy and crunchy. Come on, it won't bite you.

In August, 1971, president Richard Nixon declares war on inflation by freezing all prices and wages. It's a nightmare for Hershey. Cacao bean prices are rising fast, and now the company can't raise prices to protect its profits. But Mars is in a better position. Its bars are mainly new good or cookie. So it uses less chocolate. Shortly after Nixon's announcement, mahler calls Hershey's marketing team to his office. To deliver shocking news. We can not suffer a loss. That's like taking money out of orphan's mouths. Mueller's not kidding. Most of Hershey's stock is still owned by the orphan school Milton Hershey founded in 1909. If Hershey doesn't deliver profits, the school misses out on millions in dividends. Mahler lets the message sink in and continues. So I'm ending all unnecessary expenditure. That means no more ads except for Kit Kat because that's a contractual obligation. Marketing manager Jack dowd leaps to his feet. You can't do that. We're making breakthroughs. This will kill our momentum. But Mueller's not budging. It's a week later, and in Mars headquarters in McLean, Virginia. Forest Mars has gathered his top executives together. Hershey has stopped advertising. This is our chance. I wanted all out attack. Give me the biggest ad push we've ever done. Get our products in the best spots in every store. I don't care about the cost. Do whatever it takes. Give them no quarter. Motivated by potential bonuses worth up to a third of their annual salary, Mars executives launch a blitzkrieg. TV ads for Mars candy bars, fill the airwaves. Mars salespeople fan out across the nation armed with in store display materials. Knowing that 70% of candy bars are bought on impulse, they push doors into putting Mars products near cash registers. They also resort to underhand tactics. They win over store managers with free boxes of candy for their kids. They sneakily relocate Reese's Peanut Butter cups to remote corners of supermarkets and accidentally knock Hershey bars off the shelves. The cost is huge. But Mars is a private company with no debt, and deep pockets. There are no stockholders bleeding about quarterly results, and there aren't any bankers poking their noses into the finances either. As far as forests concerned, any losses now are an investment in his candy empires long-term future. With no ads or sales push from Hershey to stop its advance, Mars steamrolls over its rival. And in fall, 1973 Mars shoves Hershey off its throne. After 70 years on top, Hershey's no longer America's leading candy maker. For forest, it's a victory that's been 50 years in the making, but that doesn't make it any less sweet. Mars usually ignores the media, but not this time. It makes damn sure the newspapers know that Mars, not Hershey, is the new candy king. Hershey is crumbling fast in times running out for it to fight back. On the next episode, Mars battles Hershey on size and price. Hollywood offers Hershey helping hand and M and M's. It's a reboot.

"To just build the giant like like he wants to build a basically like he wants to do was to build a debts. Okay i mean he has the point though right so like if you wanna go to mars right and you let's say let's say you have asteroids or whatever wherever you getting the reasons from you only really need the thing where you get the resources from be big enough to get the resources out like you don't also need to build everything on there if you've already got everything moving around in space then you can kind of like it's moving around so it's like i can take stuff from here. I can take for american sensor. He wants he wants to put like production of things on the moon and production of things out and our space and then send all those things that are produced to earth. Right so potentially. If you're making i don't know iphones. Or whatever and you got all these robots working to make it in space. It's like who gives a shit like toss all the pollution now like it doesn't matter there's pollution's on factor anymore. We we can make it. He wants to make a cheap enough to go. Pick up whatever product. Whatever thing they're making and then bring it back to earth. Jeff bezos has a very kind of like capitalistic beneficial for earth mindset of space. So that's just it does. It seems like from what you're explaining is like jeff. Bezos is primarily looking at space exploration versus colonization. Right like you can build a things that fly through the. You're not saving humanity. 'cause that that but ever death start you have. It's only going to have a capacity of so many people and that's it. Yeah well. I think i think his actual position is like we've know this. We've looked around the universe. There is nowhere better than earth so like it's not. It's not going to get better than this. Mars is not the answer other planets are not the answer We've got to take care of the earth and this. Yeah they're a handful of planets that they say are potential life holders that but there's no way we can get to them. No not right now not now. Not in one hundred years now. Not necessarily i was reading a paper that about work drives and how it's actually physically possible. I in my opinion as like like a bit of a technological optimists if we can crack quantum computing and like a. I feel like we are going. To see walk we might see incredible advancements inch and shit like that or maybe we have actually despite what we think have figured out physics as much as physics can be figured out in that you know like these. Theoretical things are impossible. Well i mean that aside. Jeff bezos does have a point like the earth we live on.

I wanna i wanna know the physics about how much we could you put on something like the moon before you start affecting at wait. What you think is going to fall out of the fucking grabbing.

They don't have to build their own chip then they could just go in. Take it take fucking mars. Pays the thousand people come out with. Ak47's more everybody down there like mars.

I mean you're gonna go you wanna go with birdshot right like you don't wanna fuck and blow holes in your in your dome or whatever but when you need oxygen though for you have anywhere. There's people there's oxygen so you're not shooting shooting people in space suits right. What i'm saying is is like a china already steals like countless fucking information from all over the world so any kind of technology that the states or anyone else there would have like they would already have access to and the other thing is is. Mars is so big like like they could send as many rockets as they want. Land on the other side of mars. It'd be like hey we're concerned load a bunch of fucking tanks and it doesn't matter we don't have to play. It probably would be less risky for them to to just do that instead. Of like inciting a war on earth over this. Yeah but that's the other thing though is like we're like. Is that going to translate battles on mars. Is that going to equate to battles.

Okay go ahead go ahead go ahead so i mean again like it's not like if i go to another country. I don't have to sign any documents. I have to loosely. Follow their rules as long as you don't get caught your fine. If they're going to send you to mars that are gonna have contracts that you have to sign you're going to have like the are strict guidelines of what this is. What you're there to do this is what you have to do. If you aren't being able to do that then they're going to take you off the project and what go ahead go ahead. Go ahead so i mean like whether or not that takes. I can't remember how long they said it would take to be able to make the round trip because they have to make enough oxygen on mars to be able to Fuel the the ship all the way back but like even see. It's a year like you're going to have jails the key run a real risk of you. Have somebody on mars and like almost now. You have to have police like you have to have some of. It's going to police them like for. What if there's a vulnerable personnel. Like you know all of a sudden like how do you like what kind of you know. What laws are there.

It's going to be dependent on earth because the earth will have to send supplies but the plan is to become self sustaining and to be able to extract oxygen extract energy x. Grow your own food and then not need earth for anything and eventually get the technology to tear format so people don't have to like live in pods so they can like have an atmosphere and we'll see i don't understand how you're gonna tear for though because of the gravity tariff it. They could just. They could just have little dome. They can yeah. They can live and in bubbles giant glass baubles total recall style. Yeah they don't they just have a base as long as it doesn't matter how sustainable it's just don't depend on earth because the politics of mars are going to be very different from the politics of earth. If it's not sustainable. They need to at. Least be sustainable. Right well. I mean like the politics that you'd have. They're like what kind of wouldn't really be political. It would be. How could a lego. Because you'd have an organization like when you first got there for the first while it's gonna be a company ray.

I'm just going to do this and everyone knows we're doing this and then i'll tell you along we did something else.

"Now because i feel like in my opinion politics it's all shortsighted because you can't sell a term or like a platform on something that's going to happen in twenty years. You have to be able to have it be tangible that's gonna happen for years. You're not going to have like a political leader come aka. we're gonna put all this money to be on mars because in twenty years we can get there. Because everyone's gonna be like well. What can you do for me now. Well i mean that's one of the problems with democracy right like if we're picking leader every four years there's no way to have a space program that needs fifty years to appreciate in value right. Well if you look at a guy like sanders like who wanted to come on and say like listen like i just want to try it. You know if someone like actually at k. Like i just. Let's just try it for a couple of years. What do we have to lose. And it's like true. Change is not in a four year term. It's not even an eight-year term. It's like if you start looking at stuff like abortions and low income neighborhoods. It's like fifteen to twenty years later is when you're gonna start seeing those statistics of like prime dropping and stuff like that's what you are you are you for mandatory abortions and low income neighborhoods. I'm not for mandatory abortions. Okay i believe everybody should have the right to it though. Oh okay okay. A pro pro choicer here. pro-choice it. Yeah i mean. As far as i'm concerned i i'm like What would you consider. Refer to myself as a social libertarian. Such off terrible. that's terrible. We hate that mckeever time. We hate those view. There's is just getting well. We've had a lot of conversations about libertarian. And how they lose every time because basically like if you've got one group of people who do whatever you want as long as you leave me alone and then you've got another group of people are like no fuck do what i say. Now like who do you think is gonna win. Well the problem is is you. You create a narrative sides that the guy in the middle. I feel like most people in the middle would be considered libertarians. Like they're just like listen like you know like why can't we just look after each other. Believe me the like. Why do i care if you want to go shoot up and ruin your life. You doesn't affect me. You care because if you hold that opinion you're a slave to whatever power is going to be like driving against you so if you're like well i like guns. We should all have guns If you don't want to have guns that's cool. You're gonna lose to the guy who's like hell bent on taking away. Your guns right. You need to align yourself with the guy who like you can't fuck and people should be own. Nuclear weapons like people should be allowed to have automatic weapons. All the police have automatic weapons and grenades and tanks and everything. because if you don't side with the guy who is fighting to keep what you want even though you're like why don't agree with them as politics. You're gonna lose the other guy who's who's gonna like. No i want to take away every single gun. You have right yeah. I agree with that because it's happening right now. Rate reasonable gun owner. And you're like well you know licensing makes sense and like i don't want everybody to have a gun..

"Yeah so i wanted to have you today. You guys always talk about weird kind of messed up interesting fun stuff on your show. I actually heard you guys talking about mars a bit. You pete you guys got into it a little bit about. Is it feasible and stuff. I mean it is feasible. But i think the issue he we had which kind of came and redacted. A little bit is is He didn't understand or he wasn't aware of the technology that's been advanced so far by elon. Musk and and his His organizations to be able to get there and then just in the last couple of weeks stuff that they've been doing In mars is is a pretty historic. They have a helicopter that they've managed to get off of Off the ground mars and fly around and the biggest one is they've actually created oxygen out of the carbon dioxide dense atmosphere mars which is like a a major major breakthrough. Yes so he was saying like he didn't even think it was possible or wasn't progressing or wasn't making leaps forward. I guess well it's because she not to speak for him but just from episodes like a big hate on elon. Musk because I agree with them. I like it. I like his. I like his hate for elon. Musk i understand the standpoint that he has because i mean he's kind of an exploitive owner of that company kind of exploits as workers. He pushes them. He doesn't give them what people were considered to be Like fair work practices right. But if you want to make an omelet you gotta crack a few eggs. Yeah so i mean. We'll get into that for sure. So basically The us private companies nasa maybe china. We don't know definitely. North korea are starting to spend these exorbitant amount of money and people are saying things like hey. This is for the future of human civilization with guy goto mars regatta become a spacefaring civilization will die out in a few billion years when the sun collapses and then no one will ever hear earthlings ever again we gotta get to work on this now immediately.

Space apple space great spaces awesome. Space is interesting but do we want the guy to take their. I'm not. I'm not so sure. His motives are so. Let's say if you think about it. You're only going to get these type of people that are going to be visionaries enough to want to put us. They're like if you were to look at a guy what's his name She like They let the leader of china. Oh yeah kim jong hoon no. That's north korea but china china. Yeah yeah yeah yeah. Sorry sorry sorry g. or whatever. His name is these type of places that they're going to put a lot of money into getting us there. It's not like you think. Joe biden his.

"Designed to snow. The mineral makeup of the of the moon will moss when no djilas just as being roaming around for years with that lama. Thanks very much love the show. take care bye. I love that a liberal. I'm i would have had little. I'm on the moon. Because i think in policy there was a geologist wasn't they yes geologist with look at what you're saying. Andrew pete bigs like from the love of what kid all. It's actually what's amusing is. The electronic means that hugh uses to turn the audio into text is made into a little hover with a capital h. Because obviously thinks it's a vehicle that drives over the surface of the moon on mars. It's still make sense. But i know what it means. Beat me level. And that's what i'd say is well. He's a great question and actually it's got does have links with with our question a couple of minutes ago because i thought i kinda suspected we'd be going down that that particular path about spectral analysis i suppose spectrum analysis that's what it is exactly that spectrum analysis so with it's such a rich field this an it's it's what allows astronomy and space science to work because he can detect things at great distances from from the makeup of stars themselves because all the chemical elements in the atmosphere of a star put their fingerprints on the on the light that we received from the straw and you can always not using a spectograph device. That blake brakes the light up into its rainbow spectrum. Cars different wavelengths sharp individually. And so. That's how we know unequivocally what stars and galaxies made of the same works for for surfaces as well looking at reflected light. So you've got the light of the sun and if you if you pass that through a spectrum spectrometer or spectral graph doxa for the first thing..

"A huge amount a huge advantages in terms of power to white which is one of the things that interests you as as a space engineer you get enormous acceleration for the amount of mass that you carry so there is there is a group. Excuse me a research group in princeton princeton plasma physics laboratory. They're working on a concept called the direct fusion drive which is a fusion reactor force base. It was originally developed in the early two thousands. Excuse me he was a hot plasma of helium. Three and detroit. Duty room in this magnetic com container and essentially you get you get nuclear fusion from that and that hates the propellant to these very high temperatures and sends it out it's also magnetic component is a linear magnet accelerator. It really interesting technology which will be wonderful if it came good and then we will be zapping off to. What do they suggest he could get to mars. Sorry to saturn. In two years against the ten years it takes now about pluto in about four years. So we're really quite extraordinary looking to the future. Yeah it's very exciting. I'm sure they'll crackle is problems. And once they've developed hick engines we can get demise in an hour and then when we then when we've developed what technology we'll just take a couple of minutes will yes in fact it could be instantaneous. Yes could never come back more i. We'll we'll watch this space with interest because it sounds like things really ramping up in terms of the power needed to work to get around. This is space nuts. Andrew dunkley here with professor fred watson. Space nuts this is the space nuts. Podcast episode two hundred and thirty eight. We professor prayed watson myself. Andrew dudley and. I talked about a website earlier. I have not.

"Coughed into that orbit heads halfway round one orbit and then you basically you're breaking rocket so that goes into orbit around the other body which is mars and that's that's the thing that gives us the standard said month or so travel time seven to eight months. Sometimes nine months depends on the orientation of mars in the earth. But the other point about that is you can only do it. Every two years which is why we have this rush of spacecraft being launched last july. Because if you if you miss window you send your rocket off its transferral but when it gets to the over to mars. Mars is already somewhere else moved along so the timing has got to be perfect. That is why you've got this two year window. It will be very good to be able to change a lot and that's why people are once again. Starting to look at a nuclear rockets have been many nuclear rockets tested. In fact never. I think going into space but certainly tested on the ground dating through the late nineteen sixties. Plenty about this stuff on the web but the the program kind of in the post apollo era was shut down in fact in nineteen seventy three in the united states. Nuclear rocket technology has been tested in russia. We know that but not in the united states was shut down in nineteen seventy three with the basically the of the space shuttle program when the idea of going to mars were shelved because the us wanted to build a space station and wanted to have a reusable spacecraft special which then basically took over so the there are well. Let me just take a pause. Their nuclear rocket research started nineteen seventy three nuclear research. Didn't the we now know much more about new nuclear technology than we did back in the nineteen sixties and in fact. There is difference in the kind of fuel that you might use. Its it was always highly-enriched uranium. That was used. That was proposed. Back in the sixties which is kind of the stuff that you may nuclear weapons out of. It's not very nice but it's something you could stop here. This there is a there. Is low enriched uranium which might now open the way because the technology has moved on. Basically what you tried to do. Just let me explain. Our nuclear rocket works. A radio from going. Caputo yet can love me. I shouldn't do that. It's wrong if it does. And you're you're you're in bad shape. It's it's basically a pellet of uranium that is that is undergoing fishing which is the process that a breaks up the atoms and release heat. The amount of heat is released is enormous. And what you do is heat up a gas. It's usually hydrogen up to about two and a half thousand degrees celsius. And then you blow that out through a through a venturi the back which gives it a very high velocity and the key point about that is you. You end up with two to three times. The efficiency the propulsion efficiency of a chemical rocket. One that uses liquid fuels the standard thing. So you've you've you've got you've got this sudden increase in efficiency by a factor of two and that means the same size of rocket you two or three times more power and more of the so..

"So it's it's a mission with a high chance of success would be very very interesting. It will be brilliant if we could just to the vocal a book archive of the past atmosphere of mars. That says yes back in three point. Eight billion years before the common era. Mas this this climate is particular level of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. That's basically what you're looking for because not will be what kept mas warm so yeah says a fantastic fantastic possibility and hope you took about twenty twenty four hudson to oppose what mystifies me to a certain degree is how he was that. Mas was able to maintain for some period of time a wet warm environment and then it couldn't. I mean what changed or was. It just was always destined to fail. It was because it's too small to hold onto a thick atmosphere. So so this actually another aspect to it as well. And that's that it doesn't have a magnetic field but these these are the two factors that come about because mars is small smaller than the earth by two so. It's time to half the diameter of the earth and that means its core would have cooled much more rapidly than the earth's core has done that means that there will be no chance of supporting plate. Tectonics which is one of the crucial things that stabilizes our atmosphere factor would have stabilized mars atmosphere plate. Tectonics are driven by internal heat. There is some evidence from sort of residual magnetic fields on mars here and there look as though they might have been formed around the boundaries of plates of continental plates but they must have solidified a very very long time ago because we believe that mars is crossed these now sort of continuous like an orange and orange peel and we believe it's been like that for a long time. Because that's the explanation. As to how moses volcanoes grew so big in particular olympus mons volcano in the solar system is because there was no plant tectonic shuffling it around over the the nine paul hawks spot that was driving. It is the hawaiian islands. Have done they moved around above the hot spot..

"This is the idea that maybe some of these water features could have been formed underneath huge glaciers. So you've got this sort of almost like a snowball mars but with the river rivers a made of meltwater effectively flowing underneath. 'these place your sheet. So that's slightly new idea. He's got some support bu- think the overwhelming view is still some time even if it might have been only for brief periods. Mars had a warm and wet climate. The trouble is howdy probe back into mas climate. And that's where question begins because there is being able to do so or are they looking at ways of doing so. Yeah it's it's a future. It's a future possibility. But one this really intriguing and with good reason to believe that this will be a very successful venture when it finally gets going so we know from spacecraft. That's already in orbit around the house. It's called marvin or maven somewhere. I've got hit the acronym which is mars atmosphere and volatile evolution. The you are that you've got to stick the enemy and evil but mars atmosphere volatile evolution. What it means is sensing the atmosphere of mars. It's been there for six years actually collecting data but one of the things that maven has uncovered is there is a flow of actually charged particles from the words what we call ions in signs s particles that have lost electrons and these particles of oxygen carbon nitrogen argon. These have been coming off. The surface of mars for billions of years maven his detected them. I've seen results. From from from those detections which are really interesting. Yeah but what has watched new and this is the work that we're talking about today. It talks you come from university of berkeley and other institutions. What's new is the recognition that those ions those charged particles found their way into space but also onto the surface of mars is largest moon larger. Moon there only two which is fobel's phobos and objects thirty forty kilometers across really interesting in. Its own right because it's got a very low density. It's probably something a bit like pumice in its in. Its makeup space. Scientists are not sure where it came from and how it got to be like it is but the bottom line is that phobos is in the flow of these of these ions and they will essentially deposit on the surface of phobos which is not subject to any other kind of phenomena apart from radiation from the sun which is well understood. And you can deal with that..

"Let's talk about something really cool. The Mars helicopter Amar. Okay. So a helicopter on Mars. This is the sounds like science fiction, that sounds like something from like a nineteen fifties scifi movie where like martians land on the earth. In they take over, but the us helicopter. So, you know, something crazy, like a Mars helicopter. Okay. So let's talk about that for a second. So on the Mars twenty twenty mission, there's a helicopter right, there will be launching a helicopter to Mars during the March twenty twenty mission and the aim of this helicopter is a test the feasability of flying heavier than air vehicles through the atmosphere on the red planet. It just passed some really important tests. It is now moving into the final stages of preparation ahead of the July. Twenty twenty Mars launch, and this isn't a big helicopter. It's four pounds so easily lift it up in your hands, but it's going to be flying to Mars in the twenty twenty mission in, it'll be deployed once the Rover sets down in Mars Jazirah crater. And that's supposed to happen on February. Eighteenth of? Twenty twenty one and it's going to take, you know, numerous months to get to Mars from earth in the helicopter will also have a camera on board in. Also used solar power to get the job done. So this camera that doesn't have any sensors or anything. I mean the the helicopter has empty censor is ready thing like that. It's just to do the flight test. That's it, it's only there to see if it's possible to fly a helicopter on Mars. That's all it's gonna
