Perseverance is Cambridge Dictionary's Word of the Year

"The Cambridge dictionary announced its twenty twenty one word of the year the word became popular thanks to NASA's Mars rover this is the name of the world the junior teenager Alex Mather won an asset naming contest it is in my opinion a central quality of human beings as a species editors at the Cambridge dictionary say online searches for the word spiked after the perseverance rover made its final descent to Mars in February it's been looked up online more than two hundred forty three thousand times around the world so far this year I realize that perseverance is not only just an important part of the mission but an important part of humans and I decided that that was the best name for the mission perseverance is defined by the Cambridge dictionary as continued effort to do or achieve something even when this is difficult or takes a long time I'm a Donahue

Here's a suggestion, while I understand why we were so curious about the moon back in the day, why don't we worry about fixing what's wrong with our planet right now and stop worrying about going to Mars? I'm kind of concerned. Everybody is just so Mars hungry. The only Mars I care about is the Mars candy bar and I don't even care about that that much. I don't understand it sometimes.

"Types of supernova events. So this really worked on what we called the core collapse. The big massive stars eight or more times the massive our son collapsing and depending on the exact type of star you'd have to tweak a little bit of the model because a red supergiant slightly different in terms of size and density to a yellow supergiant. The one we go here we can. Then say all right. Well we just need to check the parameters for a red supergiant if we expect it to be that type of supernova so we kind of know and we're starting to match the stars explode. And what their light curves or their ch- explosion over time looks like trying that matching game and therefore used the correct model and physical measurements of the ticket. The right property so really. It's kind of big game of what do we see. What does it look like. What do we need to measure the and then what does it tell us ultimately about the life cycle and the ends of these stars the progenitor what we know about it so in this case we do know that it was a yellow supergiant. This is a star that started to graphically expand the outer shell as a cold or the photos. Fear is really big. It's really puffed out to the very wide star. Say if that's the correct way of thinking but also it is much heavier than the sun. In this case it's yellow supergiant. Was you know anywhere. between ten. And fourteen times math of our sun the radius or the width of the star was anywhere between fifty and three hundred times the radius of our sun. So there's a little bit of uncertainty there but we kind of know it has to be within that range so we're talking about something that is much wider than the sun and quite a bit heavier. How far away was this style. So this star with almost the redshift two point zero seven which is about a billion light years away this actually a relatively faint supernova and it was on the boundary of the limits of what kepler could successfully detected measure. So this is actually what it was. Exciting is the limit of what we could measure with kepler but it was still big enough and bright enough that we were able to see all this detail and in a pretty great amount of detail if that so yeah. So it was one of the more stars that we've detected with kepler supernova. Been in the four to five to six hundred million like your range with just slightly over a billion light years away and you were talking about it being a yellow supergiant. That's different from a red suv. John or an orange supergiant. what makes them different stars. are nighttime. sky have different colors. it's all about the temperature. how hot they're burning and really hot. There burnings related to their age. And how much gas or material to star has using atoms together creating energy energy comes out as heat or temperature and that temperature glows the color just like in the flame of fire. The red flame is a bit cooler than a blue flame. Same with stars red supergiant or cooler than yellow supergiant which are even cooler than blue supergiant and all of those stars we do now know can exploded supernova but they all produce slightly different explosions because of just how much energy and how they can be things so because this was a yellow supergiant as opposed to a red supergiant like say the characteristics which led to its explosion would've been slightly different. That's exactly right so the characteristics would have been slightly different therefore the shockwave would be slightly different and then the corresponding light curve. Or the the way we see the explosion happened over the consequential days. The week looks different as well and again. This is one of the keys by being able to pinpoint exactly what our initial circumstances that actually happened. And what is the best model that describes what happened we can then apply this whole bunch of other supernova and understand in the future. What actually is happening when the stars explode and this is kind of the really cool thing just twenty years ago there was a lot of uncertainty knowledge about. We see all these explosions. What are two pretenders stars. What are the stars that are causing needs explosion. But in the past ten to twenty years we've seen a few different techniques this one being the one another one being just directly imaging galaxy see the individual stars and then go back and look when a supernova happens and see what star was present at that location. Where now being able to match up. What happened in the actual star and then how it explodes. Putting together is complete.

"Astronomers have for the first time captured the first moments of a supernova. The explosive death of estar the never before seen observations reported in the monthly notices the roster nominal society have recorded the initial burst of light seen as the first shock waves travel through the stab before it explodes supernova are among the bright as the most powerful cataclysmic events in the universe. They mock the death star's and briefly outshine an entire galaxy between them stars and supernovae create almost oil limits on the periodic table making them crucial for the evolution of the universe. An ultimately life itself the ups evasions were originally captured by an ss kept space telescope. Back in two thousand seventeen they show. How the brightness of the light changes over time prior to the explosion. This event is known as the shot. Cooling curve and provides clues about what type of stock caused the blast because the initial stage of a supernova happened so quickly. It's usually really hard for most telescopes to record this phenomenon. Until now the data was incomplete and only included the dimming of the shot killing curve and of course the subsequent explosion bit never the bright burst of light at the very start of the supernova. The new observations give us journalists the data. They need to identify the types of stars that have produced the supernova even after they've exploded astronomers rabo to test the data against a number of existing star models and based on their modeling is thomas to determine that the style which caused this supernova was most likely a bloated old yellow supergiant more than one hundred times bigger than the sun. One of the study's authors brad. Tuck up from the australian national university says the data confirm that a specific still a model known as s w seventeen most accurately predicts which tops us resort and what types of supernova. He says the findings main astronomers will no longer need to test model models the c. which fits the observations best estela. Seventeen resolves the question. This is the really cool thing. Because you're actually talking about a prophet happen rapidly over a short period of time and it's actually starting to become the mechanism of the explosion. What we call the core collapse literally the core collapsing you start to create such a of material that ultimately the pressure that propped up to star can no longer balance out the gravity pooling inward this battle between outward pressure and inward gravity. It no longer can with and the gravity because it had so much back building up. That isn't really doing much. You therefore then start to build up too much therefore causing the rest of the star to implode and that's really where the action starts you start squeezing and collapsing the inside and to a very superintendent object something because a neutron star but at one point it cannot even collapse anymore. It can't create any more neutrons squeezed anymore. Neutrons crate any more into the object. So you reach this point. There's breaking point where you just release. All of that. Built up energy as shockwave. That then travel through the rest of this star and that's actually what causes the startec night. So the end of the star is the birth of the neutron star all within a short time period. so we have this hydro static equilibrium. Ceasing you've got gravity winning out the starts to collapse under its own. Mass and eventually electron degeneracy reaches a breaking point literally can't crush any more electrons and protons together and that causes a ricochet a bounceback and that is the supernova explosion. Exactly it's and it's that bounceback will be called the shock way that caused star take night and seeing that shockwave is what we've seen with the discovery and lead to understanding actual progenitor. Because that's the exciting thing. Not only just seeing awesome shockwave. Which quite literally happened in the scale of minutes to hours travel through the star but the length and the brightness of the shockwaves so how big or how bright the shockwave is and how long it lasts is proportionate to the size and mass of the star. You know how much pressure build up is released by. How much stuff is in there on the inside and it allows you to directly measure what we call the progenitor star what is the actual star that exploded which is a really big effort now in supernova one or just exact stars causing the exact explosions and this is the same before. This is the first time this is being done. How was it done so so. We think part of it before and what we called. The shock breakout when the initial flash. The shockwave goes through what we haven't seen in this case is the full shockwave. Traveling through everything because again it releases. It traveled through the star. And then the whole star ignites shockwave actually goes off into space and so we've seen little bits of it before we haven't seen the complete picture go together and this is what happened now to on by patrick armstrong using the kepler space telescopes telescope famous for finding planet thrown to other stars. Well it takes picture every thirty minutes. Now that's good for finding planets transiting going in front of their star but in this case it's good for being supernova and the first moments of supernova so using the kepler space telescope back in two thousand seventeen we monitored tens of thousands of galaxies waiting for stars explode knowing that we would only capture a handful but those handful capture in the first minute. And we'd be able to see. Hopefully this process unfold in the right star is exactly what patrick is. Pre predicted muddle code w seventeenth which accurately matches what you are able to observe. And that's this is also one of the important bits. We've had lots of models of what the exact process that unfolds based on this is how much stuff is there. The master the density and how quickly the shock wave moved and because previously supernova would only been caught. Maybe a day or two after explosion for lucky and we'd only monitor supernova every day or two again. 'cause we're looking from the ground you know. We can't continuously it'd be have the day night cycle and things move. Earth moves but because kepler was they staring continuously. We were able to see from within thirty minutes of detonation work shockwave. Going through the star thing. The whole unprocessed fold for eighty day and every moment for every eighty days. We're able to say this is exactly what happens. This model that predicts matches what we 'cause. It's kind of fun. Ambiguous with so much data we have and this is the process that unfolds so now not as exciting to understand what happened this particular star but now when scientists go and find other stars they won't have the same data really kepler does. But let's say okay. Well we don't need to bother trying to figure other models. We know this is the one that works. We're gonna use that one and it should give us a pretty accurate measurement and is it a case that this model works only for certain.

We have to land on europa which is hard for then we have to melt through this ice crest which is ten kilometers sick.

"To the Mars Rover and have it react. I think about you. You're sending data. You're not necessarily sending video or even a voice recording. Well, now I'm excited about it. I guess I thought that it took much longer than that. But at any rate But I think your question we are kind of at the point where I think we need a person up there. Need a human being on Mars on the moon. To really get some of that. Some of that space juice back in American society that happening is over the weekend at the estate. You will share with us what happened in his own words coming up after the news. At 10 o'clock. Back to Kobe for a second here. A skosh. This was the first weekend for the mask mandate throughout the state of Wisconsin. I was not out about all that much, so I really can't give you any if even anecdotal. Stories as to if I noticed more masks or fewer maths were you out in about at all that it was there any discernible difference from what we have seen? No, I I didn't notice anything different. The places that I went either already had You know when you go into the grocery started running a grocery store and you already supposed to wear when when you go in there, so I didn't notice any real difference. Everyone who had one on was supposed to have one on when they were in said place. Okay, remember when you wear your mask, by the way, cover the nose and the mouth Otherwise, it's like you're not wearing the mask. It all had to cover both nose and mouth. However. I said cash. I was unfamiliar with this. We have a lot of cash, cash people. I should say a lot of grads of UW wash kind, but that this is in the city yesterday about Josh. I'm not familiar with the sandbar bash. But I am now. And I'm looking at photos and Yeah, um Certainly it would appear that masks were optional at the San What would you say? I mean thousands of books and hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of People. I mean, there's a lot of the picture the one angle from the one shot. I mean, it's just it's so that his shoulder for his far as the eye can see. Just a pile and pile of humanity. The sandbar bashes. Apparently, you know, in the lake, you bring your boat up. And then there is this little bar set up in the water. Everybody gets out of their boat swims up to this bar. And goes to town. And, you know, looking at this closer. It reminds me of something out of spring break doesn't mean you have something done in Florida on a spring break bash, but Apparently, organizer said, quote We are all adults, so make your decisions wisely. And it would appear a lot of people did not I don't know. You know, you know what else This reminds me of again, you guys For whatever mandate has put out there, whether it's by a mayor. A city council. Governor. And I'm gonna see this. You know for a while, but in the end in the end, because how enforceable is this? When asked to be called nine. What? You're not supposed to call 911. And don't call 911 If you see somebody not wearing a mask, that's not what that's for. And while I am a mask, supporter, and some of you bristle at hearing that, well, sorry, it's just not a big deal. Just wear a mask. It's fine. I wear toe protect you. You wear to protect me. It is a reminder that in the end after all the ordinances and mandates and laws and edicts and things like that from elected officials and otherwise it just comes down to you and me acting Responsibly acting, I would say self, Leslie. That's what this is all about. That's what it comes down to. I am ultimately responsible for you. You are ultimately responsible for me and no matter what is said. From somebody who has the power to mandate something. To the extent this can be enforced and will be enforced. We'll see. I don't know. I would say that there are more people wearing masks now than ever before. Now, whether that's personal choice or because a specific establishment A company of business of building of some sort has asked us to do it, Perhaps Whatever the reason is, and there are people I believe there are people who will now wear them more regularly because of the mandate, Okay, but However, and why ever They are. You know, put in place the mandate. The masks are said to be warned. It's just personal responsibility and were in some respects. We're on our own in that. Realm, are we not? And I Look like I said, You know where I come down on this, and I know there are those of you that don't like it. I know there are those of you who who say you don't trust a mask. In the end, though, I would think whether it's for health reasons. Weathers for economic reasons you would file whether it's simply, you know what? I just want other people to try and be healthier. And maybe we get through this thing a little bit quicker if I wear a mask. Find some reason. Some rationalization. Some explanation. You wear one, and in the end, we'll have nobody to credit or the blame for that matter. Then you and I cause I'm responsible to you. You're responsible to me. Here's.

"The KOMO Newsline. Dr Sarah hers. She's a professor of planetary science at Johns Hopkins University, and a member of the research team goal is to enter the big outstanding questions that we have about titan. We just had, you know, the completion of amazing mission called Cassini Wiggins, a couple of years ago and, and from Cassini, we found out that titan, is even more interesting than we thought it was before. And so we propose this mission dragonflies go down to the surface, and what is the surface made out of what are the conditions like down there, could there be, you know, the requirements for life. And what do we have to learn about the origin of life on earth about the possibility of life elsewhere in the solar system, and, you know, maybe there will be evidence of life on titan that will be able to find once we, you know? Finally are able to go down to the surface and really, really study in detail. What's going on? The surface addition to being a planetary scientist and member of this team. You're also an expert on titan itself. So why go here a really interesting object in our solar system in and, you know, the reason that I've been studying it for twenty years titan. We sometimes referred to as an earth like moon, so titan has a lot of the same processes that we see on earth. There are extensive sand dunes. There's very big lakes and streams sees it rains there and the thing, that's different is the chemistry, the composition of all of these things are different the lakes and seas and rain water there liquid methane, essay. And so we see these, these physical processes that are so similar to earth, but the chemical processes are completely different. And so it provides us amazing laboratory to really test our understanding of all of these processes that we see happening on earth, but under. Lately, different conditions. And that's the way that you really can tell us you know, how something works or not. And what's different about this mission as opposed to some of the others that have gone to tighten? Mission that has actually gone to the surface of titan was the Hogan's probe which was a short lived probe because we didn't actually know what the surface of titan. Look like at all when the probe was design them. So the Wiggins only lasted for about an hour and a half on the surface. It didn't have the capabilities to be able to move at all. So it just kind of how to sit there and stare at the same thing over and over and over again. And of course, it has very had, you know, instruments that we're just not with our pre Cassini understanding of titan. And so, you know, the thing that's different about Dragonfly compared to Hogan's is that we have mobility were a long lived mission, and we have all of the understanding that we acquired from all of the time that could be me Wiggins since studying with Saturn system that we were able to us when we were designing the questions that we want to answer the instruments required to answer those questions. And so, you know, even though we've been to the surface of title before, dragonflies going to completely revolutionized our understanding tight dragonflies seems to be inappropriate name. Because as I was looking at the release earlier this week. This isn't like the one of the Mars Rovers, this is more like an Amazon delivery drone. Well, I don't I don't quite know what the sale of, of an Amazon delivery would be. But it is certainly the case that this is a flying platform in so Dragonfly the door quad copter. We sometimes referred to it as a rotocraft Lander. So the Mars Rover analogy is good in the sense that that's about the right size. So it's a pretty large drone it's not like your backyard, you know drugs that you, can you can fly at home, but, you know, it will be heavily instrumented the way that Mars Rovers are, and it's about the same size but on titan that turns out that it's much much easier to fly than it is to drive. So titans, lower gravity. It's thicker, atmosphere make it so that it would actually be possible for a human fly there, if you were to flap, your arms. And so taking advantage of those things that makes much more sense to fly than it does to drive. And so that's. We're going to do so windows program launch. At this point is looking like about twenty twenty six which would get us to tighten around twenty thirty four. So if you studied the outer solar system, you have to have a lot of patience, you need to eat your vegetables, and you need to exercise regularly. So we're doing all of those things is an expert in titan. What's the one question year wanting to get answered I'm gonna give you two answers. The first quick answer is I want to know what the surface is made out of all of the different places. I want to know the organic chemistry I wanna know the bulk composition. I really wanted to dig down and figure out a lot of those those things because it plays into so many other questions that we have. But the other thing, I really, really want is I want to I want to experience what the surface of titan looks like from different vantage point from the air, we only have one image from the surface from the wagons probe. And I'm just so much looking forward to try to get to know titan better Hearst. She is a professor of planetary science at Johns Hopkins University.

"Just five hours before voting was set to start explaining a one week delay NPR's ofeibea Quist arcton is in the capital Abu joins us now. feB? Thanks so much for being with us. Greetings. And why the delay? Well, the electoral Commissioner says it was because of logistical problems. Voting materials have apparently not been delivered to all the remote parts of Nigeria and they've been a series of FIS, destroying smart card readers and voting cards. Now Mahmood Yakubu says it will simply not feasible to proceed with these key elections today, and that the delay will ensure that the electoral commission and Nigeria hold free fair and credible elections. But those explanations are not going to wash. Because why just five hours before? The polling stations were meant to open surely many people are saying this should have been known weeks ago at least at the beginning of the week. What about the reaction from candidates, first of all let me tell you that Nigeria's president who had gone all the way to the north tickets in a state where his hometown is Dora has appealed his compatriots to remain peaceful patriotic and United after the eleventh announcement, but as a candidate because of course, president Mohamed is seeking reelection his party the two main parties for Harry's all progressives party and his main challenger after Quebecers People's Democratic Party have criticised the independent national electoral commission, and they also blaming each other ABC says Atiku speed EP has undermined the electric mission a tick, Wisconsin just that this delay is to help Biharis chances. Of re election, but the parties have both front runners have appealed for calm and are asking their supporters to be patient. Because of course, there is always the threat of violence. If elections are delayed, or if there's any sort of trouble with Nigerian connections, what kind of reaction have you been able to get from voters in Nigeria. Salutes theory, Nigerians are angry that frustrated that disappointed that they can't vote. Some simply can't believe this is happening and the reaction on social media, Scott has been brutal critical of the election organizes saying they must have known that they weren't ready now. And also, let's add many voters have had to travel to their home towns and villages all over the country, Nigeria is Africa's most populous nation eight t four million people registered to vote some of travelled hundreds of miles from where they work and live, which is a. Of course, costing them time and money, and now they conflict not happy and many a suspicious of the reasons for this postponement, Mr. Yakubu the election chief says the vote will go ahead a week from today Saturday, February twenty third do you see that happening? He he and his commission had better get it organized. Otherwise, the fury Nigerians are feeling today could spill into much worse. So they say the presidential. And of course, they wasn't just voting for president. Also for governors also for national assembly also for the state assembly. So we'll have the presidential next Saturday and another vote, but some have been postponed till ninth of March. That's after the original second round the date of the second of March. So the electoral commission has got to get it self sorted out. NPR's ofeibea Quist arcton. Thanks so much. Always a pleasure. We probably should not project human traits onto machines. But if you spend a lot of time with a mechanism talk to it, wait to hear from it and worry about it. Even scientists begin to see personality in machinery and the opportunity Mars exploration Rover ended its mission this week after more than five thousand Martian days. Nasa, scientists mourned this is a hard day opportunities project manager, John callous told reporters, even though it's a machine, and we're saying goodbye, it's still very hard and very poignant opportunity, and it's cousin Rovers spirit.
