NASA's Mars rover Perseverance is in the home stretch of its journey to Red Planet
"When you do the landing on mars it has to work perfectly the first time and so we have to just do our jobs perfectly to make sure that that happens. This is innovation now bringing you stories behind the ideas that shave our future. Andrew johnson a technologist at nasa's jet propulsion laboratory serves as one of the managers for the guidance navigation and control system on mars twenty twenty when building the system. The team conducted tests to make sure the hardware could survive launch and its transition into the vacuum of space and during the spacecraft's seven month journey to mars. Andrew and his team have continued to check the camera high performance computer and inertial measurement unit that. Make up the navigation system on cruises. We can make sure that we can collect data from the camera. And then we can collect data from the i m you and that the computer can do the processing it's required to do but certainly we can't test out exactly what we're gonna do during landing but we can make sure. Each of the pieces works correctly and now andrews team is ready for entry descent and landing on february eighteenth as mars twenty twenty touches down

"mars twenty" Discussed on Houston We Have a Podcast
"Scientists engineers astronauts all to let you know what's going on in the world of human spaceflight. NASA is paving the way towards a sustainable presence on the moon and onto Mars though humans have never set foot on the Red Planet. We've been there many times most recently. The Mars insight lander that went to the surface of Mars to understand the planet's quote, unquote vital signs, it's seismology and heat flow, and whether the planet's core is solid or liquid, before that the curiosity rover landed on Mars to explore the surface for chemical and mineral evidence of past habitable environments on Mars, searching for environments where microbes could have survived billions of years ago or these habitable environments I remember watching curiosity's landing live and man what a throw! NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory is sending a new rover to Mars. It looks a lot like curiosity, but with a whole new suite of incredible instruments, many of which are indirect preparation for human exploration on Mars We're talking instruments to test the production of oxygen from the Martian atmosphere identifying valuable resources such as subsurface water, improving landing techniques and characterizing Martian weather in a way that could help future astronauts that are living and working in the environment. So here to go into detail on this new Mars Twenty Twenty rover called perseverance is Luther Beagle deputy division manager for science at NASA's jet.

"mars twenty" Discussed on NASACast Audio
"Starts with chemicals. The chemistry of life is so important to understand. So how do we know? It's life if it's life like we don't know it. There's a lot of ways that life could be different but not related to life on earth. Hi I'm Jim. Breen chief. Scientists and NASA gravity assist on this season of gravity assist. We're looking for life beyond earth. I'm here with Dr Heather Graham. She is an organic geochemists NASA Goddard Spaceflight Center. Heather has a profound curiosity about the natural world. The history of life a vast connections between biotic enabled attic systems in one evolution can tell us about our future. Welcome to gravity assist Heather. Thank you so much Jim. Well first off what? The heck is a bio signature so via signature is just a physical indication of past or present life. That can be something as simple. As a bone that appealing colleges might find footprint an imprint on the environment or a chemical compound that's highly specialized for life. So how do we know if a bio signature actually came from life? Can WE BE FOOLED? Oh yeah that's Probably the most important part of bio signature. Science is making sure that you are looking at something that came from life and not being fooled by something can be made by physics by nature by geology by biotic chemistry. There are a lot of things that we associate with life. That are actually very common Being made out in stars a lot of the chemicals that we associate with life are really an inheritance from the universe. We also have to be very careful to keep our work clean so that we're not contaminating it with contemporary life. When we're trying to understand past life we know a bio signatures require certain chemicals. Is there some underlying composition that you look for in a bio signature? Yeah so it really kind of depends on where you're looking and what you're looking for For example a really common by ensure that we hear about a lot is DNA on that something. That's universal every organism. Has it so it's easy to say? Oh yes this is definitely from life. This is a molecule. That's too hard to make without biology being involved but DNA is ephemeral. It goes away quickly in nature. It's broken down by other organisms and reused very quickly but there are other chemical compounds that lasts for a really long time especially in the geologic record in the rock record and those are the kinds of things that we can look at as being a more robust signal of life on long timescales so getting down to the basics you know the the really important chemicals at carbon seems to be one if we if we look at what we have inside us. It's carbon hydrogen oxygen nitrogen phosphorus and sulfur. Sore those the fundamental compounds. We ought to be looking for so those are the fundamental compounds that we associate with life on earth life as we know in life as we know at correct them the kind of work that we're doing here at Goddard and the research group that I'm involved in doesn't always presupposes that though we're interested in bio signatures that might not just be about those particular elements or more importantly other elements that might be bio signatures as well. How do we figure that out? How do we figure out? What are the more important moment in? That's really from just observing nature in its in its completeness in its totality not just by looking at life but by looking at nature in context of its environment to understand what it's taking from a chemical system to build itself what it's eating what it's requiring Breathing out what the byproducts of its metabolism are and. Then you can track down. What are the important things that are are moving through? A system and that movement is the the central signature of biology. If something static it's unlikely to be involved so the concept of you are what you eat is true absolutely so we we actually pull things out of what we eat in in plug them in or body yet so we we take carbon from all these other sources and interestingly though you know carbon dioxide is our major byproduct we all breathe it out but there are lots of organisms that don't do that with carbon. They use metals and other strange things. And we find all these metals certain places in the geologic record and even though we don't see that organism. We know that this is something it left behind. So where do we find bio signatures usually when we're thinking about bio signatures? We think about the rock record. We think about geology. And really. That's just because that's a really stable repository to find a bio signature. You have to find a place. Where a molecule or. A part of an organism is protected from degradation. So we think of places where there's not a lot of oxygen since most other critters that would want to eat that organism are going to be using oxygen we look for for rock areas of sediments that have been protected from oxygen in the atmosphere and the rock records interesting. Not just for people who are interested in land but A lot of the rocks are actually old ocean. It's all the ocean sediments so we can peer into past ancient oceans despite going to certain rocks on earth. Will you brought a really nice friend with you? It's a fossil. What is that so this is a really special fossil this is from the Ad Akron period? That's about six hundred million years ago and this was a time in Earth's history when biology got really experimental and during this time period we find all sorts of crazy organisms that only exist during that time period biology was trying to all sorts of body plans and ways of living on the surface or just below the surface and really neat ways and these kind of fossils are only found in a couple of really special places on earth on Nevada. Namibia so this fossil as you can see there's these Long sort of tubes and there's ridges along them and they criss cross and what's sad is. Is this piece that I brought to you. Only about the size of my palm. And what you'll see is there's all these tubes weaving back and forth over each other but not in a random way in a very special pattern and that's part of what makes us realize this is biology and not just rocks happened to fall in a really interesting pattern. This is this has intentionally in. There was energy. Put into a system to leave this texture. This strange structure. There's a couple of different ways you might be able to try and explain it. Maybe it's texture on Iraq from a BIOFILM. Maybe it was a tube worm that was living below the surface. But what's really important about? This is we. Don't have any physical way without biology of making a pattern like this and that's what makes it a bio signature. You can do all sorts of experiments with different sizes of rocks and different chemistries of solutions of water. But you'll never make something that looks like this. Yeah it looks creepy. So I heard you know. There's like four thousand seven hundred minerals on earth in about three hundred of them could only be made by life. Yes absolutely so I know I am a chemist so I'm biased towards organic chemistry and I'm giving a lot of examples of organic chemistry that are by signatures but really there are lots of minerals that are bio signatures as well. There's a lot of great work that's been done to show what minerals you absolutely need for. Example oxygenic life the kind of life that made oxygen all the algae and the ocean that made oxygen there minerals that would only be associated with those really high levels of oxygen that those organisms created so if those organisms never developed on another planet we would be unlikely to see many of those minerals on those planets. How long do these bio signatures last once? They're in the rock is at it No actually one of the real arts of bio signature. Science is knowing what things look like when they break apart unfortunately a lot of the chemical compounds that we use his bio signatures. Don't last in that state that your body or another organism's body made them. They break down in very particular patterns and so we find those degradation products in the Rock Record. So once life is created in a decomposes a end up with the parts and so figuring out you have all the right parts are or even some of those parts may or may not be preserved over time. Yeah that ends up being a real problem. So what kind of tools do you use to really identify these parts and pieces and bio signatures? Yeah this is a real puzzle. So this is the kind of area would really Think of his interdisciplinary science. I'm looking at a particular sediment for example looking for particular compounds. I'm taking a lot of information that I've learned from other geologists that have described that rock so I will know something about like. Was this rock. Once a lake was at the ocean was it Buried in heated. So I'll have a lot of information from geology to help me direct those tests. About what sort of molecules? I'm likely to find and the other important thing about these molecules that we think of as a signatures that are being preserved in the rock record. Is there an example of a community? They're usually not just one particular organism. You're looking at a habitat. You're looking at a whole bunch of different metabolism's so you're really. Not just saying was their life. Was there not life? But you're getting a sense of what the ecosystem was you know another thought? I had relative to Bio signatures in rocks is is a structure in our structure. That how how geologically could that have possibly have happened in a like straddle light So you know when we studied by signatures. How does that help us? Think about the origin of life. Here on Earth Yeah. That's really interesting so a lot of these chemical compounds that we're thinking of don't really last on really really long timescales when we're thinking about something like the origin of life a lot of what we're looking at is physical Structures in the rock a really old evidence of cells really old evidence of biofilms which are just Big Accumulations of microbiology together So we're looking for those kind of physical things in the oldest rocks and that's where textures in rocks become really important and also something that you want to be able to make sure that those textures aren't something that nature makes all by itself without biology being involved so the key to find him life way in the past is to start looking at the old rocks wall. How old are the rocks here on earth? So that's kind of a bummer. About Earth is that most of our rocks have been recycled. Oh no and heated and cooked and moved and washed lots and lots of water. So it's really hard. Actually we think of of earth is being this you know life saturated planet and so it must be so easy to find life but when we look in the deep past. It's actually hard because much of that. Evidence of life has been destroyed by tectonics by the planet moving around were very dynamic planet. So we have to look for what we call. Quiescent parts of the planet These are like old croutons the really the oldest rocks on earth that are up in Canada and Greenland and places like that we find really interesting textures in the and we'd like to think that those are probably the earliest forms of life and then that gives us a sense of. What was the chemistry in that early ocean? What was the planet like? And that gives us a sense of the kind of chemistry. That was possible so just recently. A team from the Mars Twenty Twenty Rover Group. This is the group that is going to be looking at the rock record from Mars Tracked out into Australia. An owner was running. Why are they going to Australia for a meeting? While they're out in the middle of nowhere in Western Australia and they went to the Australian shirt cruel. Yeah so this attract. That's old rock. Yeah Yeah So. What do we know about that? Australian shirt yeah so those are some of the really old rocks where we find the oldest evidence of life. What's really special about some of those rocks in Australia? Is you can find really old evidence of microbial biofilms these mats microbes that that form these layers and they grow up up up upon each other in these layers. And that's a strata light like you mentioned and what's really interesting as you can see living examples of those right off the coast and Australia. So it's such a special place feel that window into the deep past and then see something that's contemporary. That's stars the same lifestyle and conducting its biology and pretty much the same way for billions of years. It's a really special place. In fact when they measure the date these rocks they find. They're like three point six or three point eight billion years old yet. We know the earth is four point six billion years old. So there's you know nearly a billion years record that we've lost yeah and The really sad thing is because that's our earliest evidence. We know that somewhere in that time period between formation and that three point eight ish number that you give. That's that's the exciting part. That's when life evolved and we don't have really anything to go on there and that's where Experiments in the laboratory can become really illustrative for giving us a window and giving us something to imagine for that passed. This is were Mars comes in and a really neat way because It doesn't appear to have had some plate tectonics but not like earth and it appears to have been a blue planet like Earth early on but then went very arid and so maybe the record of life starting perhaps On Mars before three point. Eight billion years is attainable. Knock record there that we can bring back yet. That's what's really exciting is is. It hasn't had that you know. Heating and Cooling and moving and crushing. The Earth has and that really can tell us a little bit about why we choose to go the places. We go on Mars right that we're looking in these sediments that we know were buried once upon a time and If there is something organic there were looking in the best places to find something that wasn't exposed to the surface where it could be altered..

Autonomous helicopter joins its rover buddy for Mars 2020 mission
"A mars helicopter so this thing it's a very small quad copter think of it is <hes> what else toy drones you could buy from amazon for kinda cheap but this isn't very cheap and it's not very small. It's about the size is of a shoebox with the rotors about <hes> about four feet wide and this helicopter is not mission critical go so they just attached this to the belly of the mars rover in the high one cleanroom at jet propulsion propulsion laboratory in pasadena california sing is solar powered and it has the mars helicopter delivery system which which will deliver well deliver the the helicopter to mars and also that's what helps it launch and <hes> <hes> shields it from debris during entry descent and landing the helicopter will remain encapsulated in the mars helicopter the delivery system after landing deploying to the surface once a suitable area conduct test flights is found in the crater where they land now. It's a very high risk high reward technology demonstration. If this helicopter encounters difficulties difficulties the science of the mars twenty twenty mission won't be impacted but if the helicopter is successful and if it takes flight is designed the future missions to mars could possibly have other quad captors other drone copters. Yes that could deploy when they get there so <hes> spokesman from g._p._l. Said our job is to. I prefer to prove that autonomous controlled flight can be executed in the extremely thin martian atmosphere since our helicopter is designed as a flight test of experimental technology carries no science instruments but if he proved powered flight on mars can work we look forward to the day when mars helicopters aw can play an important role in future explorations of the red planet. Mars is big world and there's lots of geography on mars. There's cliffs caves in deep craters that a rover just can't get too and that's why something like a helicopter like a quad copter is very important to the future missions on the red planet. They can act as scouts. They can film inside caves. They can film inside craters. That could take pictures. They could take amazing photos of things that we would never be able to see if we were just relying on rovers and nasa intends to establish a sustained human presence on the moon through there nasa artemis miss lunar exploration missions and they could possibly use <hes> quite captors on the moon as well so <hes> jim breitenstein nastase administrator said the rate brothers flew the first plane kitty hawk north carolina but they built it in dayton and the mars helicopter destined to be the first aircraft to fly in another world was built in pasadena california join now to the twenty twenty rover. It is yet another example of how nasa artemis generation is expanding humanities reach in our solar system with this joining of two grace spacecraft. I can say definitively. I believe that all the pieces are in place for historic mission of exploration together mars twenty twenty and the mars helicopter will help define the future of science and exploration of the red planet for decades to come mars twenty twenty with the helicopter on board will launch an a u._c._l._a.

"Later in the hour we'll be discussing how land and soil can be used to both hurt or help the environment first NASA's Mars twenty twenty mission is now just around the corner next fall when the next Mars rover is scheduled to launch with an upgraded suite of instruments to study the red planet in a way that curiosity and opportunity never could and one of its main objectives when it gets to the Martian surface will be to search for and identify signs of ancient life on the red planet but how will it know what to look for well one sign of Martian life could look pretty familiar evidence of ancient stromatolites those are one of the earliest life forms ever discovered on earth stromatolite fossils are found today only in a few areas around the world including the remote outback of Western Australia that's where NASA scientist headed this week to study them hoping to gather clues about whether this organism could have also live on ancient Mars here to tell us more about what they're looking for this week coming to your wall away from Pilbara region of Australia is my guest Mike Solti Mars twenty twenty program scientist welcome to science Friday good morning good good morning to you thanks thank you for joining is also joining in joining me from my JPL headquarters in Pasadena California is Katie stack Morgan deputy project scientist for the March twenty twenty mission welcome back Katie thank you our robin let me let me let me tell me ask you first you're with a group of NASA in European scientists down in Australia right why is the Australian such a great place to go looking for them so so Australia is a great place to look for these because it contains in the rock record some of the most ancient evidence for life on earth these rocks here in in Western Australia are three and a half billion years old and they contain the stromatolites these Microsoft holds that we see in the rock record and this is one of the very few places in the world that has this older rock record that can change these traces of ancient life so are you sort of like taking photos of them so that is when the the rover sends back a photo you might be able to compare them for example also do some more policy is only one clue that we use to determine whether something is evidence of life and a rock record in this particular case one of the big clues though is how they visually look a lot of times people see these in two dimensions and they're not convinced by the biogenesis the second so really getting out into the field to see them in three dimensions to study the rocks and what the rocks tell us about the environment is also very key to really helping us decide that these are evidence of life so so what are the conditions on Mars in which a Martian stromatolite would have grown so same as earth well what we think so there are a variety of environments here on earth where we we see stromatolites forming today and where we see in the rock record there again the environment being told from the story of the rocks and so we think that similar kinds of conditions would have existed on Mars so for example we see out of my life forming today and hot spring environments and we see evidence on the surface of Mars that there may have been hot springs and change it passed we also see a lot of stromatolite forming and look Custer and are very shallow marine kind of environments and we interpret those from the rock record forward beat ancient rocks and we think especially where March twenty twenty is going to land there was an ancient lake environment where the rover will be landing that's cool Katie the the the twenty twenty March twenty twenty mission is designed also to look for a few different signatures of like not just stromatolite trying that's right so March twenty twenty is headed to a place called jezero crater it's an ancient crater on Mars what's really exciting about the comparison between jezero the rocks in jazz are on the rocks in Australia is that we're talking about rocks of about the same age or even older on Mars and so the kind of life that we're seeing in the rocks preserved in Australia may very well be similar to the the type of sign of life that we could expect to find in Gen zero crater on Mars with twenty twenty well let's talk about we've had Rovers on Mars for a long long time now how is this mission different from all the other Rovers Katie yeah so so much talked a little bit about how the the shape of the the rocks the shape of the stromatolites is only one way you can identify a potential bio signature the March twenty twenty rover has as part of its instrument payload a series of instrument that can not only take images of the rocks but also mapped out their composition and whether they have organics in them and that's really exciting in terms of building a case for a bio signatures not just what you see but also what the rocks are made of and whether they have organics anyway okay let's say you're fine stromatolites anyway to get them back to earth you've never found some valuable information right it will March twenty twenty is the first mission in a potential series a mission whose objectives is to bring Mar samples back to earth and so our job with March twenty twenty is to find the best possible samples we cannot jezero crater and and and cash them and collect them on the service for possible future mission to go pick them up and so use are you saying that you can identify positively identify as stromatolite with the equipment that you have on the rover you know we can make a really good case for one but it will not gonna be able to posit to positively identify the signs of life likely into we get those samples home if we get them home Mitch how are you gonna know how old the Martian stromatolite fossils are if you find well there are a variety of ways of doing that one of the things that we see here in Australia is that there are different kinds of rocks in which these these microfossils are in case and there are minerals in those that can be radiometrically dated the other way that we can do that is look at layers above and below where the microphone microfossils exist we can often date those kinds of minerals as well so on Mars what will what will try to do is collect some rocks that the that contain these kinds of minerals that we can radiometrically date so we can actually trying to pin down the date that those microfossils if they exist hi Katie what about the recent detection of math thing on Mars is that make you feel like you might find stromatolite Sir any forms of other kinds of former life the methane detection by the curiosity rover and gale crater is very exciting from after biological perspective we don't quite know exactly why receiving that signal on the the time skills that we are in jail I think it does increase our our excitement about the chances of finding life and for us on March twenty twenty ancient life on the surface of Mars is it fair is it but basically thought among scientists challenges who now work on Mars that it's a given that might you know might have been life on Mars one one time or another given that the all the water in the evidence of water there has been made yes so that's that's really one of the reasons that we are excited about Mars is because we do see this evidence on March the surface that there was water in and marches past and knowing that you know Mars and earth there's sort of similar geologically some of the kind of environment that we think existed on Mars long ago are the kind of environment we see these this evidence preserved here on earth so it is very exciting and the possibility we think it is there that wife could have started on March as well how far how far is this rover gonna roll around how many days what is the link that says the three three hour tour I mean what are we talking about here also the the the prime mission for the for the the prime mission is currently for one bars year which is about two earth years so we'll and that has the capability to traverse about twenty kilometers we've seen from our previous role is that they're capable of doing better than that but that the mission design is for twenty kilometers so that gives us a lot of range to be able to do that and having the mission be for one March your gives us a lot of time and have you put are you are you putting the the rover down in a spot that you think is most likely to find evidence of life yeah that's the idea and so in selecting the landing site was a process that involve the entire science community so we had a series of workshops to define what would be the best place to send the rover and so through this series of workshops and then making the decision that at NASA headquarters we chose in general crater partly because we see evidence of a river coming into what was once a lake that filled this crater that that Katie talked about and so we see various types of minerals in from orbital data that also indicate that there were environments that would've been conducive to hosting life at least how how did they go out on the field there match this week in Australia I was really great so we as you mentioned we had both the March twenty twenty and the X. of Mars twenty twenty rover change here and there was a lot of great collaboration and great cross talk and I think it really open people's eyes to see these rocks firsthand could you read about these you know if your geologist like I am you this is one of those bucket list places you have to go to see the some of the oldest evidence of life on earth and I think the the scientists were really excited to come here and see these rocks for themselves so it's been a really great week do you have a bunch Katie is there are there are cavalcade of instruments on board this rover I mean what kinds of instruments will it happen yes there are we have we have a bunch of new instruments and some updated instruments from the curiosity rover so we have improved cameras we have some geochemistry instruments as well of the map at as well as the mapping instruments I talked about we also have the ability to see into the subsurface with our radar instrument and we have a technology demonstration to produce oxygen from CO two in the Martian atmosphere my money back let me back that up again the you you're gonna make oxygen of the CO two that's right is that.

So the Mars twenty twenty Rover is still there's more things that's gonna go on with this stack. They have to stack it up. They have to put the things in order in order to make sure that everything fits properly, and then they have to unstuck it. So the Rovers in their while va dummy Rovers in there, and they have to take it out. They have to unassembled everything. And then they have to put the regular Rover back in there. The real Rover back in there to make sure that everything works with the real Rover as well. They'll do some testing. And then and only then once it pass those tests it'll be ready to launch to Mars in twenty twenty. A NASA spokesperson said until the hold down bolts on the atlas rocket blow in a Rover is headed to Mars in July of twenty twenty. There is almost always something being assembled tested or modified. Now, let's get into the brains of the operation the brings of the Rover the Rover compute element the RC. E? There's two of these things on the Rover. Now, that's for redundancy of one bringing goes down somehow doesn't work. There's always going to be a spare brain in the remote compute element interfaces with engineering functions of the Rover over two networks which follow an aerospace industry standard designed especially for the high reliability requirements of airplanes and space crafts and this thing will directly interface with Rover instruments for exchange of commands and science data. So without these two brains. None of the science would be happening in this Rover assembly for the March twenty twenty mission while they have cameras that are going to film, everything the entry descent in lane. Ding cameras will capture better than ever recordings of the events that deliver the Rover to the surface of Mars. They have up look camera to record. The parachute. They have a descent stage, which looks down that will view the Rover from above. It has an uplift camera another one that see the descent stage in operation as lowers the Rover from the crazy sky crane, and they also have down look camera that will be viewing the ground underneath everything. These cameras will be recording. What happens when the Rover actually lands how much sand and rock is blown into the atmosphere by the retro rockets.

"I think they're already is again about this this particular cut. Yeah. It's it's it's one of the decayed Broussard priorities of the scientific community. It's a it's an important project. The administration doesn't wanna fund I think I think that the administration is basically saying you need to you need to get the James Webb. We're not gonna pay for two of these telescope project simultaneously. So you're just gonna have to delay this until you get the James Webb up, but it is an important instrument, and it's a high scientific priority. And as we saw last year in the end, congress would not. Would not take it, and it's a different congress now, but still congress would not would not accept this. That w I got put back in. So it may yet be saved. But once again, they're trying to kill it. Yeah. So speaking of James Webb and Europe clipper before both see slight increases again despite ongoing issues, but James Webb and the instrumentation changes with the clipper both of those missions are moving forward in this budget. So. There James Webb is just gonna happen. Eventually, I suppose to keep working on it. It also adds funds for the Mars sample return mission. So this is a several part mission where the Mars twenty twenty Rover would gather samples for a future return mission. And that's what this budget funds is that second stage of that were those samples come back to two part thing. It's been spoken about for a long time. And I think it's fantastic that it gets funded in this budget. Yeah. It's a it's a good sign. Yeah. Because March twenty twenty is going to gather the rocks. My neighbors. My neighbor's daughter actually was an intern JPL and worked on that project the sample return. But then you have to somebody get the samples and then launch them back to Mars orbit. And then go from Mars back to earth, which is a lot of steps. But they're continuing to push it. And I like the fact that Mars twenty twenty starting it out like they are they are going to collect samples. Yeah. We talk about moon moon rocks marris samples because all of the instruments. We have. There are great. But they're not the same as instruments. We have back on if we could get some samples, but that requires yes, you gotta pick it up you gonna fire rocket off the surface of Mars back to Mars orbit which we've never done and then back to earth, which we've never done. So it's a lot. It's a lot. But I think it's I think it's exciting. There is no money for the office of stem engagement, Josh again, again, which I find infuriating again. I just. This is one of those things, right? Where we have to remember NASA federal agency and its budget is dictated by politics and politicians, and I just can't stand behind that decision in any way. But moving on before having aneurysm. We need to talk about the LS, which means it's time for the S L S segment space launch system segment explaining geopolitics, mechanical systems, engineering achievements, news and trivia, I think at the song. Oh, man. I mean, it's sort of sat. Okay. I'll do. I'll segma-. That sums it up pretty. Pretty nice. So there's a lot going on here. And I think I've done my best. I did a lot of reading. And I think I've got all the details straight. So the budget makes changes to the SOS roadmaps unnecess- next big rocket. It was it has been designed from the beginning to have multiple blocks. So this was a rocket that was not going to to roll off the assembly line in its final form they were going to be several generations of this rocket each one more capable than the previous one both in terms of payload capability, but also reach as far as how how far we could get that payload away from earth, and these stages are called blocks had blocked one block one b and then block to buck one coming..

"So we know that Mars has an atmosphere it's far thinner than ours. And the thought the theory has been that Sola wind basically shifted away over time mavens findings basically back that up and it's also himself looking at water looking at the the ice caps, but maven has an fuel to last through twenty thirty or so so it is being re purposed in part to become a communications relay for the Morris twenty twenty Rover. So instead of having to talk back to earth direc-. Actually, the Rover can talk to maven which convincing data back faster than the river would be able to able to on its own. So to do this. The team is lowering the orbit of maven around Mars. So right now, it's circling Mars like of five point three times a day. It's going to be able to bump it up to six point eight you'll have better coverage more flyovers to get the data from the Rover, and then handed back off to the deep space network when it's incite so sort of getting ready kinda getting things in place and another step towards having a another Rover on the red planet. I love the idea of as I've said on this show before the idea that we've got a bunch of satellites around Mars now, and we can use them for communication, and this is another great example where this thing was only on a relatively short mission two years, but it's still got fuel to spare for more than a decade. And. And they've done. These aero breaking new verse before in order to sample the atmosphere. So just doing it again changing it to be a little bit better. Located for. Doing a job as a relay satellites such a cool thing to have them be flexible in this way. I would imagine that this is something that was talked about all along as part of shaven. But they don't necessarily talk about that stuff publicly. But I think if you're doing game planning for Mars missions, everybody is talking to everybody else about the hardware. That's going to be there when they're there in order to make their missions work. Well, and this this is a cool. Cool bit teamwork. Yeah. Absolutely. So you mentioned the Arab breaking said they're not using a ton of fuel to do this basically just enough fuel to drop a little bit lower than the drag will pull it into the orbit that they want right? That's gonna take like three hundred sixty orbits or two and a half months to slow is very gradual process. But doing that means that they can basic serve that fuel. So if they need to make judgements down the road to say stay in contact with March twenty twenty then they have the fuel. They can. The thrusters then, but they want to reserve that as long as possible, and they can they can do this. With just physics without atmosphere is providing that force slowing them down instead of them just blasting their thrusters. And it's it's brilliant. Yep. -solutely? So so yes, so maven will press on into service for you know, a least another decade. It sounds like servicing Mars twenty twenty and I would assume future Martian programs. You know, like you said everyone's talking other if they're things further down the road for the out. Maybe this isn't the compensation for that as well. Yeah, looks recycling is what I'm saying. It's really good. It's it's it's very cool to see this the robustness of the spacecraft to that's the other thing that strikes me about all this is that you know, I I realized this is part of the game now. But it's the, oh, well, it's gonna last two years or, you know, fifteen. Like, I love that about it. But they need to make them this robust. And if they get them to to work, right? And there aren't equipment failures. They can last a lot longer than than planned. And that's a that's really awesome. So we have to talk about this. I've really was trying to avoid it because I just want to hit head. But there is something telling about the note that I have in this section of our little document being why was this thing?.

The charge it back up and burst out a signal, but it wasn't complete. So we receive a signal, and we think, oh, well there's opportunity. Oh, wait. No. It couldn't be up the. Single that. That's my whole. Well, that's the thing. Soaping like that. It was something. Like that. Nasa never said, it was that. There was no other, you know, Rover curiosity showing up saying, oh, we're sending a signal to say we turned on opportunity didn't happen. And so it's it's funny. But no that didn't happen. Go down to go to Steven in Texas. Hi, Steve Young ground zero. Hey, how're you doing? It's curious. My dad actually live near Roswell. When the big event happened the biggest oracle one, and he had a first person account of that event. I was curious if you wanted to hear that in what way was the first person account about a five year old boy, actually, driving into Roswell without my grandmother and all the event happened and from his perspective the story that he told me was that because later on he ended up working for the Apollo program and actually had a whole bunch of location for a whole bunch of conspiracy theories happened, but looking back on it when he was older said it looked at him like a only missile tests, like something like it was early development of a missile that just lights and all sorts of weird stuff on it. But across the sky he said when he looked back on it as an adult. He said it looked like an early version of a missile that just went absolutely a wall. Yeah. Roswell. Roswell. Apparently, a lot of you believe a saucer crash there. They said a saucer crash. But no, he didn't look like a saucer at all it looked like it had wings. It looked very advanced like advanced rocket of some kind. You're right. They in fact, they call it a missile in the radio broadcast. They said the missile was found last week. They call it a saucer, and they call it a missile. They call it a number of things. And so I think it was an immediate taking liberties with the word flying saucer. Yeah. I just wanted to things I figured I'd give you all the first person sank you pay.

"So it's a very it's about the size of a house. So it goes from the size of like a like a log of wood to that. You would throw on a fire to the size of a house in a fourth of a second. So that's a lot of pressure. And it is a sudden and tremendous amount of weight that is yanking on all of these nylon fibers and all of the stitching and of the fabric. So the the parachute opened perfectly at supersonic speeds with a load of sixty seven thousand pounds the heaviest payload for a parachute ever any parachute and eighty five percent heavier than the payload that Mars twenty twenty. Parachute. We'll have to slow during its two sent toward Mars. So, you know, as they do at NASA, this is planned to succeed way beyond where it will have to succeed, and it is succeeded quite well. So that's great news from ours. Twenty twenty the parachute is functional. The Rover body is getting painted right now, the chassis is is complete and they're all the the holes drilled in it and all the instruments are still under construction for the most part, and but we'll be being finished up soon and shipped over to start being assembled into the final Rover. It's just amazing. Didn't the first Mars Rover didn't curiosity? Not use a parachute. Or did it? Use a parachute. It used a parachute. So it's a combination of multiple slowing system. So users air shooters. There's there's the rockets that fire toward the surface of Mars. Yeah. I mean, technically the first slowdown is just the capsule hitting the atmosphere. And so that was down a lot. And then the parachute opens to slow don't even further because if the parachute opened at like at the like when it first hit the atmosphere, the parachute would totally rip off because it'd be fast. So it's on a lot just by going through the atmosphere. Then the parachute opens, then it drops the parachute. And it gets lowered by this ridiculous sky crane thing placed carefully on the surface of Mars, which is I can't frigging believe it worked even now. Wait, a sky crane will land on Mars I and then lower the Rover down. No. The sky crane is is a crane that is suspended in the sky by retro rockets. So it oh, wow. That is cool. Yeah. It's pretty cool. It's just completely boggles. My mind how much engineering brilliance goes into this? They just there was just a problem on the international space station where there was this like pinprick sized hole. And they had to patch it or whatever. I don't really remember the details. What I remember is. They were like what probably caused this is human error when doing the stitching, and I was like, oh, right. All of this stuff. That is going into space is made by people somehow. I had not internal. Yeah. Yeah. It's pretty amazing like with they're talking about building the chassis from us twenty twenty. They're talking about like drilling the holes that the instruments will connect to and they drill each one by hand. And they they do a pilot hole. And then they do a second pilot hole to make sure that they're in the exact right spot. And then they do the final trip. Bill because like every hole, of course, needs to be like perfectly and exactly the right spot. But it's done by a person there's person with a drill. Yeah. Like, we are not a species of artificial intelligence, or whatever we are a biological phenomenon. Like, turning cloth and metal into space stations. Yeah. Anyway, that's what you should tell your interviewer when they're tell them a bit about you. And every one of those people came out of a person. It's humans all the way down Hanky for ponding with me..
