"But later on, a HoloLens was sent into space with some of my work on it. So I feel like I've been vindicated there. Oh, that's so interesting. When I interned at NASA in college, I did two internships that they want to aims, which is out in Moffett field near Mountain View. And what was interesting enough is that in turn there and it was around I think what I got there. First of all, it was my first time in California, but I got there and I remember people on the NASA campus were buzzing about this new search engine called Google have you heard of it? I remember all of that, 'cause it was right around it was a summer in 2000 and people were really buzzing about this new thing. It's down and it's down in Mountain View called Google or something like that. And then I did Marshall space flight center in normal Alabama. My junior year, but then they also pulled the funding for our program. Because 9 11 happened, so they pulled it and then the funding had went towards Homeland Security. And so the goal initially was like, oh, you intern at these two places. And then when you graduate, you're like, set up to work for NASA. That was what I was going to do, but then they pulled the funding and it's like, well, sorry. Good luck. I'm trying to find something down. So yeah, that's interesting and that ended up happening or a similar thing. I don't know, maybe this might have coincided around the same time. I don't know. That's really interesting. Yeah, because I graduated around, let's see, 2005. Or something. So maybe I don't know. But yeah, I think probably it's likely that projects funding gets pulled all the time. Yeah, that's true. Yeah, it's not like there's one thing that NASA is really known for is not getting a lot of funding..

"What was the most important material that you uncovered in the history of the nba s. He also for the material that i worked with It's banned ridden papers and reports that were written about the n. b. s. Also a lot of photographic evidence of there were tons and tons of pictures of the of the all the dives that happened in the n. b. s. and so there's an online archive of those. So i was worked with those photos As well as there's photos stored at the at marshall space flight center But i think one of the most important Sources that i worked with was this newsletter. This archived Archived issues of a newsletter. That was Weekly newsletter that was published at marshall called the marshall star and so we had archived issues of that newsletter from nineteen sixty eight all the way to nineteen ninety seven which spanned the entire lifetime of the tank and so using that archive of of these newsletter. I was able to go through and kind of really extract A pretty comprehensive history of the tank and the who was there what tests they were doing when it was happening on any other important news About the tank and using that information from that archive. I created a sixty page timeline. Which kinda covered like all the about the tank and what happened at it and then from there we were able to use that to kinda cross reference other sources figure out dates and times In people who came to the tank so that that source was was really invaluable to my project. Well as you say. This was the first tank that nasa had starting in the late sixties but as you also mentioned it it was no longer in use after nineteen ninety seven. What happened to it. Yeah so the story of the decommission of the tank. I think gets a little tricky. So you have the tank at marshall. Which is the neutral buoyancy simulator. The nbs which is really being used for engineering design and development but then you also have simultaneously..

Thanks jim great to be here. So what actually did you do. Find out that. Nasa needed interns particularly in the history department intern during the pandemic and it was kind of during a time when i had just finished taking classes and then i was gonna take my next term of school off and so i was looking for an opportunity to do an internship or some other experience and then my dad one day told me that nasa was looking for insurance and he saw something about it online or an email or something and i was like. Oh that's amazing. Because you know he knows that i love science and love space So i looked at the application and saw that it was due This was on a friday and it was due on a monday. And i was so i was like. Oh no how. Am i gonna get this application together but i was able to get all my parts done a really wonderful professor of mine was able to send in a recommendation just in time like one hour before the application was do. Your internship project was to research a historic facility at the marshall space flight center called the neutral buoyancy simulator. We also call that the nbs now. The nba is were astronauts trained on how to perform outside work in space. But they do it here on earth.

"From Craig Sumner worked at NASA from the time of the Apollo missions today, Craig volunteers at U. S Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville, Alabama. Take it away, Craig. I had a dad that was a Marine fighter pilot. And in this case and World War two and Korea and I gotta put a little excerpt in here. You know what my parents did were kind of my benchmark. And Dad flew in the Pacific dropping bombs on Japanese islands, and they flew one mission with Charles Lindbergh and world most these Marines would take off with £1000 bomb in the center and 2 £500 bombs on the wing. Charles Lindbergh took off with 3 £1000 bombs and went on to design a £2000 bomb released in the center. Those stories kind of state with Maia's a young person, and I knew someday I wanted to fly. And so Asai started thinking about NASA when it when it really started going in the sixties. I thought I really would like to go work for NASA. I used to build model airplanes to the Blue Angels. You know, I'd build space stations, so I had a dream. I had an interest in following that kind of a pound. I wasn't the strongest student. When I first got started in school, I became a lot more serious later on and realise how important that math and science was going to be to me. In order for me to be able to make choices. You not finished up two years of college and I had an associate. A science degree in electrical engineering in the last two years was a system science degree, and I really didn't quite know what I was going to do with that degree. And I learned about the Cooper program out of the university was Florida Pensacola, So I went over and talked to him and they said, How would you like to go work at NASA at the Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama. And we'll pay you to go. And I got involved on the Lunar Rover program, which was a moon buggy program that they told us If you start you've gotta finish in 17.5 months delivered to the Kennedy Space Center to go on Apollo vehicle going to the moon or don't start. $19 million program to go build for Lunar Rovers for $19 million at cost in $39 million for is all over with, so it's hot and cold on the moon. The hottest temperature is 250 degrees Fahrenheit. Coldest temperatures 250 degrees below zero. So those are the environments that are astronauts. The limb, the lunar excursion module in the Lunar rover, all had to be able to endure. On the moon's surface and can't break down. So in the course of building the Lunar rover, I'd go pick up these astronauts that we're going to the moon. Take him in my 66 valiant Plymouth. I still have it. And I drive him over to our training facility and the conversation front seat. A back seat between many of the astronauts carried was like if you hadn't cut me off at 10,000 feet in my fighter airplane, they're flying T 30 eights. I would have got on the ground first, and I was thinking to myself is a young 20 year old at the time. These guys are crazy. They're jockeying around in the skies racing each other from Houston up to the Redstone arsenal here. And fighting to see who is going to land on the ground. It's kind of a bad badge of courage, but when they put on their space suits and climbed up in our simulators out of the Marshall Space Flight Center, it was all business. John Young was my favorite. So I got to tell you about John. When John was eight years old. There was a knock at the door. And I took his mother away. She had a mental illness. She was a paranoid schizophrenic. John's dad was a delivery man. John got farmed out to Anson uncles, neighbours. And graduated top in his high school class college flight school. Astronaut corps flew Jim and I flew Apollo went to the moon. He was our first shuttle commander. And John was more passionate in college. Then I wass Jon studied six nights a week. One o'clock in the morning. So when we were all ready to go home, after all, a 10 hour day, John Drake to go another six hours. And his dedication just was immense. And so you know when I look at somebody like that, and and I was in flight readiness reviews where I'ma presenting And John Young. Ask a question and either you don't know the answer or you've got the answer, and you tell him But if you don't know the answer, don't give him something That's not right. Unfortunately, this team effort, you know, somebody might pipe up and answered, or we go off and get the answer. But at the end of every question, John asked. He'd always say Just asking, and everybody would laugh. Johnson. I don't understand why everybody laughed when I said that I was dead serious. So as we got too close to the The actual Apollo 15 mission. I got selected be part of their backup team. It was an engineering backup team out here at the Marshall Space Flight Center, and when they landed on the moon, they didn't land on a nice flat surface. And they had one of their footpads down in the hole, and the whole thing was leaning over. So one level. We thought when the moon buggy came out, it might get hung up on self. Well, they didn't go to 140,000 miles to leave. It's stuck up there on the side of the limb. Unfortunately, it all deployed out just the way you would expect it to. They put up their pool side seats. Jumped in there threw a few switches put on their Velcro seatbelts and away. They went at eight miles an hour. It didn't sound very fast. But on Apollo 11 or first landing on the moon are astronauts had his walk around. And the suits. I told you, you know, they only weighed 60 or £70 total, but it's still a lot of work walking around up there on the moon's surface on Apollo 16 the first day they were up there is 85 degrees outside. As soon as you walk behind a boulder and get out of the sun's rays. You're out of the way. There is no atmosphere up there. It drops down to 250 degrees below zero. So it was kind of fun. You know, my 15 minutes of fame. And nobody knew that I was really doing this, You know, appear my parents did. My sisters did some of my friends But I was having the experience of my life and talking to these astronauts as I drive him over our simulation facility. Go have a biscuit with him. Listen to him. Talk about flying the T 38 jet. Little that I know. Within about a year I was going to flying the same airplane because when this program was over, so was my draft deferment. And.

This is innovation now bringing you stories behind the ideas that shave our future crystal gardens made from sugar solutions and string or salt liquid blooming and charcoal are both fascinating and familiar now. The astronauts on the International Space Station are growing their own complex. Crystal Gardens made from dissolved metal salts and a liquid medium once the experiments conclude the intricate samples will be carefully packed and returned to Marshall Space Flight Center homebase for the Crystal Garden team using a scanning electron microscope researchers from NASA and Florida State University will examine every aspect of the crystalline growth wall thickness tube measurements and crystal orientation. We'll be studied and compared to identical solutions that were grown here on earth researchers hope to get a crystal clear understanding of these micro structures and to use what they've learned to engineer new synthetic materials in the lab

A Tiny Satellite Revolution Is Afoot In Space

"Okay Joe we're talking. cubesats where shall we start. Well let me start by introducing you to Hannah Goldberg. She's a systems engineer at a company that makes cube sets but in nineteen ninety nine. She was an undergraduate at the University of Michigan Majoring in engineering. And she. She saw this flyer on a bus stop. That said want to build a satellite and so I joined a group that ended up making small satellite as part of a larger NASA program. Capanna says that This class that she took was a way for students to build a simple kind of satellite. Now this was pre cube set but clearly it would be valuable. We'll have young. Aerospace engineers have a chance to build something that was really intended to go into space and that hunger lead to something called the Cube set which was an idea idea from two engineers one at cal poly San Luis Obispo and the other at Stanford University to build this standardized platform for building space hardware. Okay Joe so. Let's get into this a little more. We've got this standardized platform now for cubesats. What makes cubesats cubes that well there's a manual and it just spells out all the details? I mean how big it'll be ten centimeters or four inches on aside at has to have this kind of screws of this kind of Wade has to have all kinds of specific things and then there are different form factors so it turns out at the Basic Cube. Said is called a one you but there's also a to you and at three U and six U is the one. That's the cereal box size. And what can you put inside Well a ham sandwich or no. You could put anything you like. But that's the brilliant part you can put any kind of scientific Communications technology kind of hardware in them. And you know these exactly GonNa fit and it's going to go into space that way. Okay so when I think of cubesats. They're like the legos of Satellite Adelaide. They're modular there customizable. They're small on smallest really key here because one of the things that makes the queue set program work is the people who build cube sense. Don't actually worry about how they're going to get into space. They hitch a ride with somebody else. WHO's already going into space? That's the real money saver because it's getting into spaces expensive all right. So how did the aerospace field respond to all these low-cost cubesats hitching a ride into space and embarking on this research. I think at first. They were kind of dismissive in the beginning. In the early days of cubesats they kind of had a bad reputation and more of the the classical aerospace. So people didn't think you could do much science or much much engineering benefit with them. So how'd cubes. That technology evolved to the point where it earned respect among scientists. Well there's an example of the technology that made made it possible probably in your pocket right now gum wrappers yes no actually gum purchase a great idea but no. I was thinking more of cell cellphone mobile phone. This is the evolution of the ability to miniature is electronics down to very small footprints. Very little wait and suddenly when when you had an impossibly small space to squeeze all your stuff into well it was possible now. So that's why people started paying attention to what you could put into a cube set. Gotcha Yeah I've I've read. There are hundreds of cubesats that have been launched over the years and I wanNA know about a few missions. That have caught your attention. Well we're really got me started on this story. Was the two thousand. Eighteen Cube set known as Marco. Actually Asari gone okay. You'll be a lot of fun in space ace Actually the word two of them. So you remember insight that was the mission. That's currently sitting on the surface of Mars. Well somebody had this idea that maybe they could could build cubesats that would act as really stations that would send signals back as insight was landing on Mars. It didn't have a strong enough Radio Antenna to send the single all the way back to Earth. So it send it back to these Marco satellites which sent it back to Earth and so for the first time ever there was real time telemetry ask has inside came the ground. It was all possible because this little tiny satellite was sent into deep space. So suddenly you're not just thinking about cubesats in Earth orbit you're thinking about cubes cubes heads in deep space. And so I think that's really cool very me. And when you say relaying Telemetry Marco was playing a role in telling people down on earth. What was happening on Mars with the insight mission? Is that what it is right inside saying. Hey I've just deployed my parachute or I've just got my Rye Retro Rockets on or I'm this far above the ground and all that information was coming back to Earth through Marco through this cube set very neat so the world of space exploration is clearly seeing these. cubesats keeps US useful yes a cube set can be very handy. It's a miniature spacecraft. That's actually the way we think about it. That was Barbara Cohen. She's a planetary scientist at NASA has Goddard Space Flight Center. She's part of a team. That's using one of these six you cubesats about the size of a cereal box that is for emission called lunar flashlight. I'm assuming this mission has something to do with the Moon. No it has to do with Luna Moth. No you're right. Is the moon lunar one. Yup that's true. Lunar flashlight is designed to look for exposed. Water Frost in the permanently shadowed regions of the moon so once lunar flashlight is in orbit around on the moon the spacecraft will shine a laser into those regions which are the South Pole of deep craters. That never see the sun so those are the places that that never see the sun so those are very very cold regions. They are as low as thirty five. Kelvin that's colder than the surface of Pluto. They want to know what what kind of stuff is down there. Maybe there's water or methane or mercury and they wanna know how it got. There and lunar flashlight is going to help. Tell them but to do. Its work once. It's deployed deployed. It actually has to adjust its orbit. Yeah how does something the size of a cereal box change orbit in space. Well again. This is the problem you have to news. Almost a third of the mass of this cube set for fuel so changing direction is the really expensive part of flying around in space in terms of weight because the fuel is very heavy. But there's one more cubes at mission. I want to tell you about. That has a really cool. Lightweight propulsion system called a solar sail. Deal oh I already loved the sound of this mission. Tell me about it okay instead. It tiffany Russell Lockett explain. This is actually her first coop set mission. She's an engineer. as-as Marshall Space Flight Center. A solar sail is a large thin-film reflective surface. Think of Like a sailboat route or a large kite but instead of using wind to propel itself is uses sunlight of. That's pretty brilliant. And that's how they're able to get the cube sat to change directions. I mean but how to sunlight propel cubes at well the Sun is always pushing out photons and that causes solar radiation pressure and that pressure is constantly constantly pushing against anything that happens to get in its way in this case. The lightweight material the solar sail and it acts like a sale. And that's how you get thrust and the sale by the way his square in shape and about each side of this sale is about the length of a school bus. And if you want to see a really amazing video go watch as this thing. They've they've unfurled at a couple of times and oh my goodness it's huge because it packs into this tiny little space and unfurled to this huge thing about the size of a tennis court actually more properly half a tennis court. This whole solar sail is packed inside. This cube sat amazing. And what's the mission for this. Solar sailed cubes. Well this one. What is going to head to a near Earth asteroid and take pictures and they want to learn more about this asteroid shape it size it how it rotates? What colored is what it's made of and to do that? We're planning on getting to within a kilometer of the asteroid for our closest Fly By and then we'll just keep going after that so this cube sat will fly off into the sunset on the power of the Sun. Well metaphorically I don't think we have sunsets in space. There's nothing I think for the sun to set over but I take your point. Joe Win. Are these missions likely to happen. Well that's an interesting question because the two last last ones I mentioned this lunar flashlight and the asteroid one are supposed to go on this project called artists one which is a rocket that's going to carry area capsule that's going to go around the moon and come back and that's been delayed and delayed and delayed so the cool thing.

Skylab: NASA's Best-Kept Secret

"Fifty years ago. America's space program achieved its greatest triumph danced when Apollo eleven put the first men on the moon by the Apollo program was a remarkable success story but is NASA was sending men to the moon they were engaged in another less celebrated project one even more important than the moon landing to humanity's potential future in space that project was called Skylab America's space station chances chances are you've never heard of Skylab. If you know anything at all about it you know that after it was launched into orbit it came crashing back down to Earth but before that crash Skylab Skylab taught NASA more things about living and working in space than any program before it so why then did one of the engineers who worked on Skylab once call call it the quote little red headed bastard out behind the barn why do so many accounts of Nastase achievements barely mention it why have most Americans never heard rid of America's first space station. This is the story of Skylab. Now says best kept secret. It's October nineteen sixty six five years before the deaths of the soil used eleven cosmonauts at the Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville Alabama Alan beam arrives for his first day on a new job instead of his usual blue flight suit the thirty thirty four year old Texan whereas a blazer and tie he's been named the first chief astronaut for something called the Apollo applications program or a AP but he's not happy about it like every other NASA astronaut being wants one job more than any other to go to the moon he at least wants to get into space but at Apollo applications. There's a slim chance he'll get do either. It's a research development program away for NASA approved at the expense of hardware and technology of its lunar missions could be used for other purposes somewhere down the line way way down the line. Most a projects aren't expected to fly for years. If ever as far as bean's concerned he's been grounded still being tries to walk into martial with an open mark. Maybe A P isn't as bad as his fellow astronauts back in Houston. Say It is. He's heard that they're working on a space station. That sounds like it could be pretty neat. Eat beans first meeting is with Marshall's director a German rocket scientist named Verner von Braun. He's the genius behind the towering Saturn rockets that will send the Apollo astronauts to the moon before that he built deadly V two ballistic missiles from the Nazis during World War Two bean Anna's half expecting him to look like Colonel Klink from Hogan's heroes with a monocle dramatic scowl but he's a charismatic bear of a man with thick grey streaked hair and the only trace of an accent welcome new tenant being. Please call me out. It's a pleasure to meet you sir. The pleasure is all mine. Let me give you a tour marshalls. Russia's buildings are huge massive hangars built for housing one hundred forty foot long rocket stages and all the equipment needed to assemble them in the corner of one building. Something catches beans. I is that a lunar landing module. Yes but it's not going to the moon. It's been modified to house a solar observatory. We're calling it the Apollo Hello Telescope Mount. That's pretty neat. Where's the telescope still in development by one of our contractors ball brothers research ball brothers the same company Mason Jars the very same they've designed many solar telescopes for unmanned satellites but we believe that a manned telescope can gather much better images ages and and more detailed data behind one of the hangars von. Braun's shows being a water filled pit the size of backyard swimming pool an engineer in a flight suit climbs out of it small lead weights dangled from his belt and boots bean realizes that they're using this pool as a primitive zero gravity simulator me later. I didn't know you fellas at a neutral buoyancy tank well technically we're not supposed to but the boys decided to build one in their spare time. Let's just keep its existence between us for now. Houston may not be happy to know that we're getting into astronaut training be knows what von Braun means until recently Marshall the only designed what NASA calls launch vehicles in other words rockets von Braun convinced NASA higher up still at marshalls start building manned vehicles as part of Ah p but some at the manned spacecraft center back in Houston felt he was invading their turf to appease Houston. NASA decided to keep all astronaut training. They're not at Marshall but it makes sense to being why Marshall would need to have its own onsite training even if it's not officially sanctioned your secret's safe with me Doctor. What else have you got to show me. I saved our best for last fund. Brown leads being into an empty hangar. Several men are standing around some in white lab. Coats others in blue flight suits being recognized as some of them as science astronauts a new set of recruits who haven't flown yet but are being trained to accompany me pilot astronauts on future missions. Several of them are drawing on the concrete floor with white pieces of chalk. An engineer is arguing with an astronaut. We need need more room for the science experiments fine but where are we supposed to sleep being doesn't understand what he's looking at. What is this Dr Von Braun. Its plans for our orbital workshop. We're still hashing out the floor plan orbital workshop. You mean a space station. Yes has been nothing quite that ambitious. The entire thing thing will be assembled inside an empty Saturn four B rocket stage. Our budgets here are limited. We have to make the best of whatever's available. I hope you enjoyed your tour sure lieutenant bean now. If you'll excuse me being can't quite believe everything he's just heard and seen a telescope designed by Mason Jar Company. A renegade astronaut training tank a chalk outline representing a space station back in Houston. They like to joke that a AP. AP really stands for almost a program after von Braun's tour. That description seems pretty accurate but after a couple of months on the job being begins to enjoy himself he likes scrappy atmosphere at Marshall Von. Braun encourages his engineering teams to experiment find creative ways to get the most out of shoestring you string budgets and leftover parts from the Apollo Lunar Program being has a degree in aeronautical engineering himself so he appreciates the problem solving that goes into figuring figuring out how to launch the space station sorry orbital workshop the size of a small house he also gets a kick out of practicing maneuvers in the neutral buoyancy tank the concept behind it as simple but carefully distributing lead weights around a diving suit. You can get it to where the person in the tank neither rises nor sinks but floats it just as they would in zero gravity. It's perfect for testing procedures that are simple on solid ground with more challenging in space like unscrewing a bolt from hatch which one afternoon in the tank. That's what being is trying to unscrew a bolt twenty. It's easier said than done in zero gravity hurt cottrill buoyancy. Everything's dictated by Newton's third law of motion for every action. There's an equal and opposite reaction so every time being tries to turn his ranch is body starts twisting away in the other direction an engineer watching from above communicates through a breathing tube attached to beans helmet doing down there. It's harder than it looks almost got it though he breaks his one foot against the side of the tank and turns harder under the effort nearly sends him head over heels but it works the bolt is finally turning got it a little son of a gun. He's so engrossed in what he's doing doing that. At first he doesn't notice the safety divert helping him on the shoulder. He turns and sees a look of panic on the diver's face than a telltale string of bubbles rising up from his own suit shoulder. He's sprung a leak. Instinct kicks in bean tries to swim to the surface but he's wearing nearly seventy pounds of lead weights. It's there's no chance he can swim his way out. The safety diver tries to pull him to a ladder but it's too late. Water is collecting inside being suit dragging dragging him to the bottom being called out through his breathing tube to the surface on leaking fellas but don't worry of a plan. He lets the water in his suit. pull him to the bottom of the tank. Then with some effort he walks to the ladder and hauls himself up the safety diver follows and helps them pull off his boots to drain the water from suit. That was close. You Okay al I'm fine fine but hey does. Houston still not know you guys have this tank is it might be a good idea to tell them before you drown your first astronaut in January nineteen sixty seven. AARP has gone from almost a program into an actual program. The Apollo Telescope Mount once envision as its own separate spacecraft gets combined with the orbital workshop to make one on single massive space station plans take shape for science and medical experiments testing the human body's response to extended stays in is zero gravity marshalls engineers developed new methods for storing and preparing food and disposing of voiced the even finally get the budget to build a bigger NASA sanctioned neutral buoyancy tank. A tentative launch date for the station is set June nineteen sixty eight. The first crew demand it. We'll stay up for twenty eight days twice. As long as anyone's ever spent in space being grows cautiously optimistic. Maybe the space station it really will fly and he'll be the one who gets to fly it

"Coast to coast, George Noory with you or with Dr Michael Sawa we will take calls with Michael next hour. Fascinated by this German involvement here after the war had they been successful before the war ended with this kind of technology, could they have defeated us? They got very close. We the kind of advance is that they had made. But fortunately for them the, the flowing, Sosa technologies that they were trying to weaponize, for the wall, if it wasn't really compatible with particular weapon, you couldn't just, you know, a canon onto a flying so-so because the principles different. The flunk courses spinning around generating potion field and the anti gravity effect, and canon, of course he's following you. Tony lows of you know what, you know, fourth going out has to generate suppose going opposite direction. So they didn't succeed in, in weaponising these things, but they did have enough time up to the will to be able to weaponize them so that they can basically demonstrate to the US and to the full and to the national security complex that the best that the US military. Head wasn't a match up. The Germans had successfully developed in, in Antarctica with the extra time I had to develop directed energy weapons, which are compatible with these kinds of flying technologies that they were using at the time and that was something that lead in the. Mining fifty two agreements and pod. Pot of the agreement was that a lot of Jim and scientists would would basically be allowed to be brought into the United States and to help the US military industrial complex to understand the complex technologies that the gym and willing to share. And I think what happened in the nineteen fifties with the operation pipe a clip where I mean, it's historical fact that they're sixteen hundred, Jim and scientists that came into the US FOSS check into senior positions throughout the military industrial complex, so you had Jim and scientists that were given security clearances, even though they had Diaby Nazis woman Nazis doing school. Kind of atrocious experiments, though given security, clearances, and we're vans. Above American scientists because they had these acuity though, insist. And so they became the head of major organizations and, you know, and there's no better example of this than nessa with win of Braun. Became the head of the Marshall space Flight Center, that was basically set up to run the entire Apollo program, and he moved his whole team of Jim. And scientists to Huntsville Alabama, to to the Marshall spice light Santa and, and they were making the decisions on what kind of Croft would be developed, and become resorces that would be needed for the success of the Apollo mission. So this is one of the things that the Germans able to take advantage of and generate a lot of funding kind of technical support for the gym in Antarctica. So this is the US kinda really, you know, a lot of grounding understanding exactly what kinds of technologies the Germans had secretly developed because the scientists, like uh. Them Brune and cook the books, who headed the Kennedy Space Center? They were former Nazis, and I and prime loyalty allies remained to the fourth Reich. Tell us about this, significance of the nineteen fifty five meeting that involved President Eisenhower. Well, that was the meeting of that happened at the Holman base in every ninety fifty five and basically, there are a lot of weaknesses that President Eisenhower. He traveled to that, if it was based and had a meeting with the occupants of a flying Sosa that landed there, and according to the sources that I've sided in the book, these, the Elkins would Germans that they were basically Jim that will that will landing at, at the facility, and this sounds strange the people at the begin. That help can Jim in the nine fifty be landing at apples facilities. And, but this is actually an who, who is piloting them for the Germans. I mean, were they all part of the secret program, they these Jim and craft these German flying so that they wear and article in an Totta that's right? Okay. And, and they were able to successfully reverse engineer these crops, and fly them all over the place. And in fact, is there are many incidents, you there individuals that say they had context with the occupants of lying, so the club and when the Cuban Scott out, they, they would German, a very famous Casey's Bonnie hill. I mean when I. I disclosed the extra lls while he described the Nazi. And, and then when, you know, people started to question against all of that be, and then he's oh, I know. Yeah. Yeah. You're right. They would these grays they didn't change the story. But he's initial report was that these were Nazis in that cropped running the experiments. And that's, that's an example of what I believe was happening was that. The Germans had potted with extraterrestrials in setting up a secret space program out of an Totta and, and the and basically, they laid them the muddle ahead of good, and the F O played catch up in the air force did its own would with extraterrestrials to try to catch up to what the Germans had achieved in the ninety forties and fifties. It's just that the air force was probably two decades behind what the Germans had succeeded in doing. Now, the meeting with with Eisenhower. And these representatives of was there, some kind of e t alliance how they was. Yes. That was something that the Germans, they will looking with trista roles and this is one of the things that I think was used to convince president is in hell to enter into an agreement with this German extraterrestrial, alliance, the, the promises basically that, well, if you pot in with us, and you say, some of your Mentz economic resources, and you'll manteaux with us, we will give you the technical and scientific knowledge you need to be able to reverse engineer, these so it'll be a win win for both of us. And so that's what I think, is in hell agreed to at that meeting at Holloman Air Force base and soon off of that. I think that's when you have the US. If it to reverse engineer, some of these captured crop move into high gear because now though, being health by the Germans in Todd who had already succeeded in understanding these technologies. And said now they would helping the American scientists and corporations to understand these and then to stop building their own alien reproduction vehicles. Now, tell us about your thoughts about the Apollo program because this is mind blowing it is mind blowing because the, the Apollo program in the ninety sixties of a twenty billion dollars a year, spent on, on the Paulo to, to get men to the moon. And what people don't realize is that all the entire Apollo program was run by Germans. I you as mentioned venom Braun out in China. Of the muscles split up spaceflight Cinta at of Huntsville, Alabama, and then you had duck the booth who ran the Kennedy Space Center, these a former Nazis, they will working with the Germans in Totta and the, the real put of Apollo, and this is what I believe it was really going on, was Apollo was a cover for enormous funds to be siphoned off to the Germans in Totta so that they can build space fleets to go to my is to go to serice to go into the outer regions of the space of about solar system and even beyond. So, basically, the hundreds of billions of dollars with funnel through the Apollo targa to the gym in Antarctica and the in the financial mechanism was there, a lay it out in the book I in terms of how. This is done using a black budget that the CIA was, was was generating had been begun generating, a nine forty, and this is part of the agreement, I believe that the agreement was that in exchange for financial assistance, and manpower, and kind of like resources, the Germans would give the American military the scientific and technical knowledge so that they could basically develop on space program. So that was the that was the deal that was struck. So a in the book, I basically say that. Well Apollo caught Americans to the moon. Apollo Germans Tamaz, Michael since you've been investigating this haunted. All this information come to you. Well, it's been a long process. I mean, it's really understand why a national conflict is pervasive. And, and began studying missing ninety ninety nine when I began doing my PHD focusing on international conflict, and I was always intrigued, you know why, you know, national conflict, so assistant in and endemic and so difficult to resolve. And as I discovered eventually through the pioneering work of people like Steven grip. It was because I the system in a national system is designed to be conflictual because conflict, especially violent walls are great cover for being able to siphon unions amounts of funds to be able to secretly extract. What secrets a country has? And when it comes to advice. Danced technologies. It's not just a matter of exit trickles, visiting us in the last few decades, visiting us the tens of thousands of years. And so some of the oldest countries on the planet, you know, when we're talking about places like Iraq, Vietnam, Cambodia these have on the territory, ancient ruins, where there is a lot of information, and secrets, and even some technology. Let's of from an age when extraterrestrials openly erected with those civilizations. So this gives us a way of better understanding what was really driving. Vietnam war. What was driving the Iraqi war, and why even now there's rumors of a wall going to be happening with Iran. Do you believe that we had a Stargate program, definitely a that they have been an? Number of people who talk about having been involved in potable travel. The first one that I think the most credible of the people involved in the MONCAYO project that ran from nine hundred seventy one to ninety ninety three at the month poke s station, and it was an F facility, and they have been a number of whistle. Blows that have come forward and talked about the involvement in this program, which was basically using portal technologies. This was the beginning of a kind of Stargate program. And so when you have there have been many other people have come forward, you've talked about being involved in these kinds of portal technologies that could ten instantly from the earth. Two mas. That was what the Montauk project began working on from the ninety seventy and so by eighties. This technology had been perfected, and I think what happened was that the US military in the eighties and ninety developed its own stock gate program. I someone and I mean, you know, better than anyone else. You interviewed Emory Smith. And he talked about in the air. Force's stugotz mind-blowing. Exactly. And but one really is important to the, the listeners to kind of note is that with the, the television shows. Thug. G one. They were to serving if cheats of stuff who actually went onto the show and did cameo appearances. And so it self was initially sponsored by spice come on, and by the USA, and they would given the rights to be able to go Cheyenne Mountain, and to collect us take all sorts of just like the F wanted people to know that they actually have a stock program. But do it in a way that maintains plausible deniability and using Hollywood and the.

Jim in crop these. Where? In an Todd. That's right. Okay. And, and they were able to successfully reverse engineer these crops, and fly them all over the place. And in fact, is there are many incidents there. Individuals that say they had context with the Kippen club. And when the Cuban Scott out, they would German very famous Bonnie. Hugh, I mean when.

They would graze these story, but he's initial report was these Nazis in that crop running the experiments. And that's, that's an example of what I believe was happening.

We will give you the technical and scientific knowledge you need to be able to reverse engineer, the so it'll be a win win for both of us. And so that's what I think, is in how agreed to at that meeting at home, Annapolis base. And soon after that, I think that's when you have the US, if it to reverse engineer. Some of these captured crop movie high gear because now that would being health, by the German Todd who had already succeeded in understanding, these technologies now would helping American scientists and corporations to understand these and then to stop building their own alien reproduction vehicles.

To go to go to service to go into other regions of the space of solar system, and even beyond. So, basically, the hundreds of billions of dollars with funneled, through the Apollo program to the gym in Todd ago and the financial mechanism was laid out in the book in terms of how this is done using a black budget that the CIA was generating had been begun generating in the mining forties. And this is part of the agreement not believe that the agreement was that in exchange for financial assistance, and manpower, and kind of like resources, the Germans would give the American military the scientific and technical knowledge so that they could basically develop their space program. So that was the that was the deal that was struck. So in the book, basically say, well, Apollo Americans to the moon Apollo Jim Tamaz, Michael since you've been investigating this haunted. All this information come to you. Well, it's been a long process. I mean it's really trying to understand why international conflict divisive, and, and began studying ninety ninety nine when I began doing my PHD focusing on international conflict. And I was always intrigued why, you know, national conflict. Assistant in an endemic and so difficult to resolve and as I discovered, eventually through the pioneering work of people like Steven. It was because I mean, a national system is designed to be conflictual because conflict, especially violent world are great cover for being able to siphon amounts of funds to be able to secretly extract what secrets country has. And when it comes to advanced technologies, it's not just a matter of extra trails, visiting us in the last few decades, thinking visiting us tens of thousands of years. And so some of the oldest countries on the planet, you know, when we're talking to places like Iraq, Vietnam, Cambodia these have on the territory ancient. Ruins, where there is a lot of information and secrets, and even some technology left over from an age when extraterrestrials openly erected with those civilizations. So this gives us a way of better understanding what was really driving the Vietnam war. What was driving the Iraqi war, and why even now there's rumors of a wall gonna be happening with Iran. Do you believe that we had a Stargate program? Definitely that have been a number of people who talk about having been involved in total travel. The first ones that I think are the most critical of the people involved in the month project that ran from nine hundred seventy one to nineteen eighty three at the mum poke s station, and it was an epilogue facility, and they have been a number of whistle. Blows that have come forward and talked about the involvement in program, which was basically using total technologies. This was the beginning of a kind of Stargate program. And so when you have there have been many other people have come forward who've talked about being involved in these kinds of technologies that can instantly from the earth to MAs. That was what the Montauk project began working from. In the nineteen seventies. And so by eighties. This technology had been perfected. And I think what happened was that the US military in the eighties nineties developed its own Stargate program. I someone I mean, you, you better bang, what else you interviewed Emory Smith. And he talked about in the air force is mind blowing. Exactly. And but one really is important to the listeners to kind of note is that with the, the television shows stock is one. They would to serving if for cheats of stuff who actually went onto this, and did cameo appearances and the show itself was initially sponsored by spice come on, and by the USA, and they would given the rights to be able to go. Scien- mountain and to use of. Just like the F wanted people to know that they actually have stugotz program, but do it in a way that maintains plausible deniability and using Hollywood and the film industry is a time on way of maintaining plausible deniability, because you can you can release the truth, but it's done in a way that can.

Fifty years ago this July that moon race was fueled by rivalry with the Soviets the desire to honor the wishes of a martyred leader and a blank check from taxpayers. A lot of things just lined up perfectly to make that happen. That's similar ingredients right now. So it's a different era that kind of competition does not exist right now. But what does exist? Now that's unique that didn't happen back then is all of the partnerships with international players during the symposium. The former navy fighter pilot who wasn't even alive during Apollo met with those international partners. He had some convincing to do US space policy has shifted with the political wind in two thousand four President, George W Bush, but tired the shuttle program and set his sights on the moon a program called constellation, but. When Barack Obama became president. He made it clear the moon did not interest him. So in twenty ten he cancelled constellation after an independent committee determined the NASA budget fell far short of the am Bishen. The agency was left with a vague underfunded notion to go to Mars, but in December of twenty seventeen President Trump signed space policy directive one which put NASA back on course to the moon. Nasa policy has been as dizzying as the stomach churning JIMBO rate test in Dourdan by the first, astronauts when you talk to your counterparts as you did or there today, and you tell them we're going to be there in five years, we need your help. They kind of hanging onto their wallet a little bit. Are they little skeptical? We are anxiously anticipate the resources that come from these other countries. But you're right not every country will participate at the same level. And we're okay with that all the big spacefaring nations. Where here except China conspicuous in its absence. What are your thoughts on whether China should somehow be brought into this partnership? So that goes above the pay grade of the NASA administrator what I will tell you that we follow the law. And the law says that NASA is not going to do any bilateral kind of cooperation with China that we're trying to. So what will this international sprint look like to be determined quickly? The president has directed NASA. And administrator Jim Brian Stein to accomplish this goal by any means necessary. You must consider every available option and platform to meet our goals, including industry government, and the entire American space enterprise Pence gave that address at NASA Marshall space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama where they designed the Saturn five rocket that carried Apollo astronauts to the moon, the even bigger rocket. They and Boeing are building. Now, the space launch system or s is troubled. It's. It's behind schedule. Yes. It's over cost. Yes. It's been a challenge every rocket program in history has had those challenges, but we're almost there and the problems that it has had historically it's been under development for ten years. We're getting those problems fixed..

"Stephen, no. Usually when stuff shifts over from just listening volume changes. So I didn't know whether you actually heard me I called because I'm afraid that Mr. Limbaugh has been misled as as most in the American public by various news media with regards to well, he was talking about the blending hills wanting to leave the earth single and go to Mars and so forth and so on because warming, and unfortunately, well, let me set the table. I I in the nineteen sixties I worked at the Marshall space Flight Center for the Chrysler space division. I know a little bit something about that. Okay. Unfortunately, all of the popularization that have come out have been very bad. I did not think any millennial who knows anything about space technology would even think that anybody who's going to go to the owner Mars to get away. Primarily the bureaucrats are running this. Now, have you ever heard something called the gateway concept? No, what's that? The gateway concept. What is that? The gateway concept is some. What say less less than bright people are proposing. Putting an international space station type satellite orbiting the moon, and that's supposed to be the way that we all from the earth to Mars and the other planets, okay? Okay. And it's it's a crazy thing. Something put together by bureaucrat. They know nothing about orbital mechanics. I know nothing about the technologies involved in all that stuff. But they're selling this junk to the public. So the idea is that it would be like a base camp on Mount Everest. You have it at the moon, and from there you go to Mars not at the moon at the moon would make sense, but they are orbiting the moon with the space station. Okay. Which is which is quite difficult is just going to the moon and setting up a base their base on the moon would give you tremendous scientific. Test station, for example, you could put up all kinds of physics instrumentation. I could go on forever on. I don't know. I understand that. But but the point is that all the stuff that is being sold right now, primarily by the media is is junk science and once once people discover this after probably appropriating tons of money for it. Then they're just gonna cut it off like they do the project. Well, that's that's very interesting. Stephen, I don't even know whether that looms in millennial imaginations the way it did for kids fifty and sixty years ago, where the idea of the space man, the the astronauts, it it it was something that figured very much in the human not just in child's imagination the human imagination. And there's a lot of thought I think that that original moon landing was. The kind of peak of human capacity in the way, you can't quite imagine us pulling off something like that anymore. I don't actually think I think one of the consequences. In fact, actually, I I'll make a generalization which may be a bit of an over generalization. But I'll go for it that that. In fact, the one consequence of social media the internet computers, and all that is that people's imagination is turned in on themselves. So that where once you had little boys who dreamed of being a space man and going up in the space rocket and going to the moon. And now we have little boys who attend in on themselves and thinking about their identity and dreaming of becoming little girls and competing in the Connecticut state track championships in Connecticut as a young girl, so as a general proposition, I think people's imaginations have actually been turned in and becomes solid cystic, and narcissistic. A navel-gazing as a result of computers and social media, and all that's my generalization of the day. All generalizations a bad as they say. So take this one for what it's worth Mark signed for rush..

"That's a really good point. And I wonder if you can comment on that more because your watch. Getting this from Washington from the inside. But, you know, very, well what's happening far outside the city. People are laid on a house payments trying to get temporary work while they're on furlough in stealing themselves for yet another payday with no paycheck. So for Americans, these are urgent and really distressing issues. But there seems to be a disconnect with Washington. Can you explain why there doesn't seem to be a sense of urgency there? You know, I talked to a lot of individual lawmakers who really do feel the urgency. I talked to one congresswoman last week who said she's not sleeping at night because she's hearing so much from her constituents about the inability to do things like pay their mortgages, you know, it's important to remind people that these hundreds of thousands of Americans going without paychecks are really just collateral damage in this fight, right? Like, the so much of the government that is not being funded right now has absolutely nothing to do with the fight over the wall and border security. They're basically just being held hostage over leverage. So that's a real reason for a lot of people to get angry and for a lot of politicians to start to feel. The pain. You just have I think on both sides. And I don't mean this e- equivocating, but both sides have their political incentive to keep up. This fight for the president. The wall has become the absolute physical symbol of his presidency. And they see it as a really high stakes battle of if he gives in here could fundamentally hurt him going forward and on the other NFL Democrats who way they just want an election in which they believed that people told them do not give in on this issue. So it's not so much that they don't feel the urgency. I think that they feel that the urgency is so great to their individual party basis that this is not the issue that you compromise on. And I think that's why we've it's gotten us into the situation of the longest shutdown in American history. Susan Davis NPR's congressional correspondent Susan, thanks. You're welcome.

"That will be receiving a paycheck. Of those people agree. What I'm doing? I spent two hours with President Trump last Friday at the Oval Office. And I was shocked at what he said he said, I demand it my way five point six billion dollars, a bitcoin Crete wall, and the government could be shut down for Munster even years, everyone, Democrats and Republicans were sort of aghast when he said it. All right. That's that. So the wall is still the great big divide between the Dem's and the pres-. Hi, everybody. Kate delay. Just heard Chuck Schumer. They're worth a play. Again, the longtime Senator from New York saying he was shocked by what the president said. And then the president himself saying, listen, these people who aren't getting paid or telling me, they support my wall idea of building it and sticking to my guns. So here's the bottom line at this point in all seriousness. No monuments are really open. And if they are there's trash all around them there. Shut down the administration wants five point seven billion for steel barrier. In eight hundred billion to do something about the humanitarian needs at the border. There is massive fallout from the border impasse. National parks are going into their entrance fees to figure out a way to keep floating their operations. And then there are people who are criticizing that and saying, you know, what that might be a legal not so sure that you can do that people dependent on government jobs are feeling the pinch. And what does it mean for some of them if they work in the prison system, they're getting pickup jobs, so they can afford to put gas in their vehicles? In other places. They're just furloughed from their jobs like in Salt Lake City. The US forest service folks have been furloughed in many many spots across the US. So they're just out there. Just doing something else. This may be one of the longest shutdowns in history. It's two weeks old going into the third week. Could go even further. In utah. They have ten thousand people who were federal workers because you think of the national parks, etc. In West Virginia, sixty two hundred in Alabama fifty five hundred and their salaries aren't very high. But think of the salaries and the economic impact it has on the local economies because they eat out where they shop all that kind of stuff. So of course, there's a ripple effect, particularly in some of these smaller areas where a lot of the stores are empty people aren't going out to eat because they're not getting their pay checks. There's just kind of scraping along until they know what's going to happen. So let me give you an example of a couple of places affected to paint the picture for you. Nasa Marshall space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama ever been there. Very cool. They've been furloughed and that's about twenty two hundred workers. So what do they do? They cut back on expenses the mutt. As much as they can. For example, if something isn't working they're not getting it fixed. Then there's the problem of the federal workers in the prisons. We can't just have the prisons run on their own. So some people are being asked like the guards to work longer hours, and they're not getting paid coastguard employees not getting pay. They just don't know when their paycheck is gonna come. Where's the biggest impact? The biggest impact is in one of the areas. They talked about Utah certainly is one of them in Montana. If you're listening to me pretty big impact there based on population. And all of that, Maryland DC, of course, that makes sense. If you look at Oregon, I know there's people listening in Portland how you doing Idaho. You're listening there North Dakota same thing. Colorado, Wyoming, New Mexico, South Dakota, Missouri West Virginia Virginia places where you would think that there would be. A number of federal employees in agencies that have been affected by the shutdown. The bottom line is this. What happens if there is an impossible impasse? Could it really come to that that this can't be solved? Because of partisan leanings all over the place from the White House to congress and the answer is it could be. It could be now one thing that was pretty cool is in Layton Utah. What do you do? So to me as somebody who often finds themselves speaking, not just behind this, Mike, but in front of big crowds. I say you do the one eighty so don't tell me about the problems. Tell me about the solutions. Give me the one eighty. So what are they doing in Layton, Utah what the seaquest aquarium because they know it's tough on people. They're giving free admission to federal employees furloughed something to at least make them feel better in Ogden. They've opened their food pantry to federal workers. Saying come in get the free food will help you. We'll do what we can. So then the veterans of the IRS are walking out with serial and loaves of bread and bags of apples and other food. Which is smart and good of the people that work in those areas to do that. Hopefully, others have angels that are helping them if they're stuck even if they agree like, the president says with him on the wall situation, you gotta look to the community to help pick up the people who are down two weeks and going into a third week without a normal paycheck and trying to figure out how they're going to move things around until they get a paycheck again. And some of them are in that situation. And some of them are furloughed just waiting waiting waiting to see ultimately what's going to happen here? And we don't know the answer to that. If I knew the answer, I would tell you I have some decent connections. In fact, I have great connections after the decade of doing America tonight. Plus, and nobody in DC seems to have a clue because they feel it's gonna. Drag on. It's like an argument that circular argument that you have every once in a while with somebody you won't let go they won't let go it's a circular argument. This is a circular argument. It's not stopping it's not. So for now. That's where we're at. And at this point. It doesn't look like there's an end in sight unless somebody comes up with some sort of a compromise. But I don't see that anywhere on the horizon. It doesn't seem like it. In the meantime, other Democrats are deciding who's going to run against the president in twenty twenty one of them is Elizabeth Warren. She took her act to Iowa.

"In-space ref- Africare. Presented by science at NASA. While three D printers are technology that many people are familiar with. There's one two hundred fifty miles above us on the international space station or I s that's unlike anything currently found on earth. It's known as the refrigerator a hybrid three D printer that can recycle. It's hard polymer plastic numerous times to make new items about the size of dorm room. Refrigerator? The devices controlled by operators on earth who oversee its manufacturing via video cameras. Nikki work is her masses and space manufacturing manager had Marshall space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama says recyclers on earth grind plastic pellets to create their products, but that grinding creates material sheer, which prevents you from reusing that plastic again, it's no longer strong enough for this technology demonstration, the company tethers unlimited. Developed a novel recycling process that doesn't require grinding. And that allows us to recycle the plastic multiple times. The ability to reuse the plastic over and over again is essential for long term space. Exploration work is says we can replace a lot of the things we need when we're orbiting above earth. We just have them delivered on a resupply mission. But when you're in deep space, you don't have that option. You have to have the ability to make all the parts you might need and without having a large stockpile of extra materials, the refasten precare can even recycled plastic items not normally associated with earthbound three D printers. For instance, almost all of the materials that are delivered to the station are packed using foam or plastic bags. Both can be loaded into the refasten gator to deliver items such as a plastic syringe and eating utensil or a custom-made wrench that. Ability limits. The amount of backup materials you need to take with you on a long range expedition after all in space space is at a premium the refasten caters technology demonstration will be composed of two phases. During each phase. The refasten cater will perform seven cycles of recycling and printing parts while onboard the ISS all of the items printed by the refrigerator cater will eventually be sent back to earth for testing and analysis to determine the effects of repeated recycling on the material properties of the plastic work is notes, I'm very excited about this technology both in space and back on earth. I can envision a day where you go to the grocery store and drop your water bottles and plastic bags into a wreath advocates. And then select your new phone case or kitchen gadget or the raw filament that you can use in your three d printer at home for more science from the. The international space station.
