Users complain the camera shaking bug impacted apps like SnapChat, TikTok, Instagram, and Facebook. On Monday snap, makers of SnapChat said it was working directly with Apple on the issue. T messaging tool slack is announcing a new canvas feature on Tuesday, September 20th, at dream force in San Francisco, canvas is where teams can curate, organize, and share mission critical resources and possibly use it to replace Google Docs and wikis, though the feature will not be live until next year. Slack is also rolling out the improved huddles feature, promise back in June, which supports video while allowing more than one person to share their screen at a time. All links files and notes in a huddle will automatically be saved in a thread. Slacks improved huddle feature is available now to a select group with wider availability to follow in the weeks ahead. Elon Musk announced on Twitter that the satellite broadband service Starlink is now active on all continents now that Asia, Africa, and the mcmurdo station in Antarctica are hooked in. Over 3000 Starlink satellites are currently in orbit with 1000 more to come under the current license from the U.S. Federal Communications Commission. In June Musk said on Twitter, Starlink has near half a million subscriptions. Apple will increase App Store prices across Europe and some Asian markets beginning October 5th, affecting both regular apps and in app purchases. In Japan, there will be a more than 30% hike, while countries using the Euro will see a 20% hike. Other countries affected include Sweden, Chile, Egypt, Malaysia, Pakistan, Vietnam, and South Korea.

"Report. It's time for some news. We have 6 stories today. Starting with our number one cyberpunk 2070 7s first big expansion has been revealed. This comes from Michael mcmurdo at polygon. Sorry punk 2070 7s first major downloadable content. The expansion phantom liberty is coming in 2023. Developers, a developer city project red announced Tuesday with the add ons first teaser trailer. CD Projekt Red describes phantom liberty as a new spy thriller expansion for Cyberpunk 2077 that would be set in a new district of night city. The first trailer for phantom phantom liberty doesn't offer a ton in the way of detail. Player character V takes an oath to quote faithfully serve the new United States of America, while the voice of Johnny silverhand admonished admonishes her, that was a bad idea. There's a snippet of gameplay, but the trailer doesn't promise much. Actor Keanu Reeves confirmed separately in a night city wire live stream presentation that he'll return to voice Johnny in the expansion. Phantom city will be available for Google stadia. PS5, Windows PC and Xbox Series X versions of Cyberpunk 2077. But not apparently for the PS4 and Xbox One versions of the game. The game's new patch, 1.6, known as the edge rudder, edge runners update, will be the final update for the PS4 and Xbox One versions of Cyberpunk 2077. The edge runners update is named for its tie in to the Netflix animated series coming next week. Patch 1.6 introduces equipable items from the anime to Cyberpunk 2077, including the jacket worn by David Martinez, the anime's protagonist in a shotgun used by another character from the show. The update also brings new features to the game, including a clothing, trans box system, cloth full stop, full stop. For finally doing it, so you don't have to look like some crazy I ran my skin is glue and I ran through a goodwill 'cause that's how everybody fucking looks in this game. Cyberpunk is supposed to be cool, you're supposed to be slick. I always look like a fucking jackass in this game. So I'm pretty stoked that that'll be there when I come back for the DLC. Hell yeah, what I'm talking about is cross platform progression, which really also announced and a new playable roach minigame roach race minigame arcade cabinet where you're, I guess you're racing as roach from The Witcher three, the horse in that game. This is cool. I watched the live stream that they did earlier today. Greg, did you get to catch any of it and also like, how do you feel about a new big expansion coming to cyberpunk? First party that I get to watch it, I did not get to watch it. I was in an embargo demo for something else. I'll be able to tell you about one day. And so then I've caught up after the fact and obviously trans mox jumped off the page for me in terms of what you're getting from the first patch. In terms of the DLC bless, it's exciting enough. It's interesting enough, right? Like, I went through in platinum cyberpunk, right? Back in the day. The PlayStation 4 version of my PlayStation 5. You ever feel like you got a bug in your back, but you don't, but you for a second you did, you have to check it out. You got to make sure. One of the ticks finally got me. What if this was their move? You know, I can't have it. Platinum cyberpunk. I enjoyed cyberpunk, but it was that, honestly, it was a lot like our enjoyment of dying light, where it was like, cool. I played that. That was this year, by the way of us, if you forget, not only to stay human with this year. We did that this year, if that doesn't occur. But it was that thing where I ran through and I had fun. Okay, and I platinum and it was done and I haven't thought about it since, right? Outside of the many times it comes up to be the dead horse we get to beat on. So this seems like a cool concept. I've seen the trailer. The trailer is cool, but it looks like more cyberpunk. And I guess that's a world I'd want to go back to and do more in. My problem would be like jumping back in by the end of that game when I platina it with my V like I was just like it was like it's got to be like that moment in Groundhog Day when Bill Murray is so fucking sick of everything because he just knows everything. Like it was similar to in terms of how powerful I was, where I didn't have to think anymore, right? I'd come up, I'd kneel outside and kill everybody or just leave the one guy I need or you know what I mean and go in there and do that or just go in there and then I forget which gun or power I had that was just so superpower that it was like you're destroying decimated. So the interesting thing for phantom liberty is like will there be a balance for that? Everybody be 5 levels of the increasing the cap. I don't know about that. Where does that all go? I don't know. Honestly, you know, for phantom liberty having a phantom release date of 2023, I think a lot of it will come down to what's it up against. Because if there's other stuff that's more exciting, it's thrilling and new. I probably won't you up on it right away. I wouldn't get to it eventually, but how many times have I said I'd get something eventually and it just sits in the backlog and never happens? Yeah, I'm right there with you in terms of that last part, right? Where I want to be excited for it. And I am excited for this actually. But it is that thing of, okay, where in 2023 is this going to land because if it lands in February and it's coming out alongside dead space, all the other games that we have announced right now, right? Like where does breath of the wild January? Dead space is January. And there's a residual four. There's a bunch of games that we expect to come in the spring alongside the stuff that we do have confirmed in the spring. And if there's a lot of stuff happening alongside styrofoam, I don't know if I'm going to be the first one I pick up. But it's one that I am anticipating in one that I want to be excited for. And I think that comes down to a few things. One of the things is something Mario brings up and the question that they wrote in the Patreon dot com slash kind of funny games just like you can. Mario Muller writes in and says, hey y'all, hope you're having a great morning. CD Projekt Red has announced phantom liberty and expansion for Cyberpunk 2077. And personally, just watching that trailer gave me the itch to jump back into night city. My question is, how sizable of an update slash experience does this need to be? In order for it to be seen as a swing in the right direction for cyberpunk. A game which has been which has been kind of clawing its way back into public favor after its disastrous launch. I've been a cyberpunk fan since its launch. There are tens of us out here. Thanks and keep killing it. And I think Mario touches on a few interesting things, right? I want to start with, I've been a siren punk fans this launch.

"You? Humans going to Mars, like stepping foot on Mars. And when do you think it'll happen? It does excite me. I think visionaries like Elon are working to make that happen in terms of building the road to space. We are really excited about building out the human lived experience of space once you get there. So how are you going to grow your food? What is your habitat going to look like? I think it's profoundly exciting, but I do think that there's a little bit of a misunderstanding of Mars anywhere in the near future being anything like a replacement for earth. So it is good for humanity to have these other pockets of our civilization that can expand out beyond earth. But Mars is not in its current state, a good home for humanity. Too many perchlorates in the soil. You can't use that soil to grow crops, atmospheres too thin, certainly can't breathe it, but it's also just really thin compared to our atmosphere. A lot of different challenges that would have to be fundamentally changed on that planet to make it a good home for a large human civilization. How does a large civilization of humans get built on Mars? And what do you think, where do you think it gets starts being difficult? So can you have a small base of like ten people, essentially kind of like the International Space Station kind of situation. And then can you get it to a hundred to a thousand to a million? Are there some interesting challenges there that worry you saying that Mars is just not a good backup at this time for earth? I think small outpost absolutely like mcmurdo, right? So we have these models of really extreme environments on earth in Antarctica, for example, where humans have been able to go and make a sustainable settlement. Mcmurdo style, life on Mars, probably feasible in the 2030s..

Soon as he hits record. I say the most random thing just to see what he does. Sorry off of course especially when recorded in like a month. So i mean i'll even a month. I think so busy.

Maybe it's just like a black hole where there is no time during the winter. There's stark all the time. So i mean mcmurdo which station which is the largest one in antarctica wonder what time zone therein will according to google.

"I went because i was on the national science board. That runs the national science foundation. And see you get a vip trip if you're healthy enough to the south bold see it Which i took you fly from the us to australia to to christ's church in australia southern australia and from there you fly to mcmurdo station which is on the coast. And it's the station with other thousand people. Right on the coast of antarctica It's about seven or eight hour flight and they can't predict the weather so when when i flew from christ church to mcmurdo station they tell you an advance. He's doing a military aircraft. They tell you advance that they can't predict whether they can land because they have to land on reassuring. Yeah and so about halfway the pilot got on and said Sorry this is the they call it a boomerang flight you know lorraine goes out goes back so we had to stay a little while and christ church but then eventually went to mcmurdo station and then flew to the south pole. The south pole itself is When i was there it was minus. Fifty one degrees. That was summer It zero humidity and and it's about eleven thousand feet altitude because it's never warm enough for anything melt so it doesn't sto very much but it's about eleven thousand feet of snow pack so you land in place it's high altitude cold as could be and dry an incredibly dry which means your physical adjustment. The place itself is her. it's fantastic. They have this great station there. They they do astronomy at the south pole. Nature wise is beautiful was Is is what's the experience like or is it like visiting town. No it's very small. There's only Less than one hundred people there. Even when i was there there were about fifty or sixty there in the winter. There's less after that they are winner. When it's real cold he gets really cold you and but it's but it's a station i think. And that's i mean. We haven't gone beyond that a on the coast of antarctica. They have green houses and they're self sustaining in mcmurdo station. But we haven't really settled more than that kind of thing in antarctica which is a a country you know.

"Ground and from the skies. We really want to understand how the isis changing now. And then can we use that information to evolve into the next century as sea levels rise across the globe one of the most recent missions that nasa launched his call to and. That's a lot of what i'm working on. I sat to is an orbiting satellite working as part of nasa's first observing system and the goal of i sent to is to actually measure the changing height of the ice sheets. These are very very thick chunks of ice. If we want to understand how they're changing we can actually measure how they're thickening or thinning. And we do that. Extremely precisely with asset to down to the millimetre level because if you have a very subtle change over a very large area it makes a really big change. I sat to has been orbiting earth since twenty eighteen at around three hundred miles above the surface even from way up there. I sat to can measure. How ice is increasing or decreasing here on earth. The satellite uses a finely tuned instrument that times the travel of laser pulses to measure the elevation of earth surface. I said to only has a single instrument on board and it sits laser altimeter. It actually splits that beam into six beams which gives a much better spatial coverage with every orbit even though they do a lot of work from the air and space to study earth. Scientists like brooke are on the ground to studying. Our planet from the ground helps us get a hands on perspective. My job is actually fantastic. I love what i do. I get to explore earth's ice both sitting at my desk solving problems but also actually going out into the field and observing it kind of split my time making models and interpreting data but also spending a lot of time whether in airplanes flying over the ice sheets or also on the ground actually taking measurements. When you're studying ice. You're going to have to spend some time in some pretty cool places and brooke has had the opportunity to venture far out. Were not a lot of people have been able to go. The deep field of earth's coldest continent. I've been to antarctica three times. And it's my absolute favorite place on the planet. Antarctica is a very special place you go in you fly into mcmurdo. Which is a station run by the national science foundation. It's kind of this little city of a thousand people right on the coast when you go into the deep field you take these itty bitty little planes. There's just five of us they land. They never turn the engine off because they want to make sure that they can fly away again right so you don't wanna plane to get stuck there. It's this mad rush to get all your gear off the plane as quickly as possible and then the plane takes off and there you are with five people standing in this flat white. Nothing in every single direction in. It's like exhilarating and terrifying all at once so then the first thing you have to do is make a fire so that you'll be safe and then you start putting your tents of the one thing that i do remember the most about being there. It's just it's so quiet. I'll never ever know experience anything where there's just no noise. There's no wildlife. there's no planes. there's no cars. There's no people it's.

"Martial art. After doctors spoke to his family they agreed to withdraw his life. Support ho was initially released by the district prosecutor following questioning. Who accepted his explanation that the incident was merely part of normal training. So there you go. By the way. I originally picked up on the story from mcmurdo joe life who has an instagram channel. And who breaks down a lot of these fake or mostly. It's fake martial arts. But he's definitely honed in on some abusive instructors. This is one of them. And you know look i guess the reason to. Why did i sink out. First of all 'cause it's awful. I mean obviously it just completely ridiculous and and when you hear about this kind of just man what do you call this. I don't know what the word that i would use to describe. I don't like this type of person. It's like it's bully for sure. But the next level bully and i guess when we start talking about martial arts and we start talking about parenting and the kids asking to go and you know we you and me obviously echo. We encourage people all the time to get their kids involved in martial arts and and to get involved martial arts themselves because of the all the benefits that it has and then you have a piece of scum like this. That does this so Just just pay attention. Just pay attention to who the hell. You're you're giving your kids to and pay attention. Watch some of those classes yourself. Mom and also the people that you're hanging around. Maybe it's you that's going to this class. it's getting beat down. It shouldn't be getting beat down in a class especially as a beginner. Look if you're in the game and you've been training for three years you're going to have some frequent hard classes for sure. You're not martial arts. Training is not always going to be easy. It's going to be a push but there's a difference between getting pushed and getting killed obviously or even getting injured And then and then listen just for kids. The best thing you can do for kids is make things fun for them. That's the best thing you can do the idea that you're going to expose a kid to this kind of abuse. Is it that that somehow is going to help them is just. It's patently wrong. It's kind of like You know with exposure therapy. If i take an overexposed you're scared of needles and over. Expose you to needles freak you out. You go backwards. you don't get better. You get worse. If you're scared of blood and over exposure to blood. It doesn't get better. It gets worse so if you expose your kids to something and you over. Expose them to the point where they're uncomfortable. It doesn't make them better. Look a little bit uncomfortable is okay. That's okay as long as that exposure. Therapy is an overwhelming when you expose people to something where they're overwhelmed. Hey it's way the war your kid right. The kids scared of water. You don't throw them in the water. No you let them look at the water then you let them touch the water. Then you let them wade in the water then you let them go to his knees and you don't then you let him dunk his head and anytime if they feel uncomfortable you let them walk away. It's okay see there's nothing afraid of you can go forward so it's just a heads up. Thanks to no joe life for for throwing this out there but Maybe getting this out to more people. So you're paying attention. We think we're sometimes we think we're doing our kids a favor right pushing them super hard and here they are so evil people out there. You kinda even like as an adult. You kinda run that re- like when you 'cause there's a there's a huge factor of intimidation especially for kids like big time where you know they go into a judo class will say Please take judo another kid and you go in there. And it's like it's the environment is pretty intimidating. So you just wanna like okay all day. Yeah fit in. And you don't wanna for sure don't want to get in trouble yelled that front of you know just intimidating you know. So you're just going to go with the flow a lot of the time and then that can be the case to as an adult as well if you go into a situation like that where it's kind of intimidating you're gonna try to mind your ps and qs and do what they say kind of thing get through it and you got to kind of be aware of like like almost on a moral level like a are these people are they bullying me right now. Like is this right and you're always like fighting with that because you don't know the tradition you know you know the tradition of the class of the school or whatever the history whatever and that can be part of the tradition sometimes and you don't wanna mess with that as well so it can be frigging hard man but when it comes to your kids to it's like there's an element actually huge element is like you kind of trust that class with your kid for sure. And it's like shoot if they're just slamming them like that to that degree where he's getting knocked out on the you you.

Scientists Have Found Some Truly Ancient Ice, But Now They Want Ice That's Even Older

"It's chilly across the country today. Highs of just fifty eight in miami and sixteen in minneapolis which makes minnesota colder than an arctic as mcmurdo station but the cold weather doesn't last forever in the twin cities and in antarctica. It does ice their last hundreds of thousands even millions of years and as npr's nell greenfieldboyce reports that makes an arctic the perfect place to find some of the oldest ice in the world. Just how old is the oldest ice. On earth john higgins says. Nobody really knows you know. Would i be surprised at this point. We had five million-year-old is i mean. I'd be surprised. But not it's not unfathomable i think he and some colleagues recently collected ice samples in antarctica. That were later analyzed and shown to be as old as two point six million years. It's beautiful stuff when you pull out. The is it. Essentially as crystal clear accepted filled with tiny bubbles the bubbles contain air from when the ice formed and this trapped air is what scientists are really after higgins says if you want to understand how gases like carbon dioxide have affected the climate throughout history. You know you can't really do better other than getting a time machine and going back in time and taking an air sample then using these ice cores which physically just trap samples of ancient air to release that ancient air. All you have to do is melt the ice. That's the sound of a research camp manager in antarctica making drinking water by melting scraps of two hundred thousand year old ice in a metal pot to actually collect an analyze the release gases however ancient is has to melt in a lab. Sarah shackleton studies old princeton where she gets to watch the trapped air bubble out and that is something that i don't know if i'll ever get sick of watching. It's actually like pretty mesmerizing and one thing. That's released surprising every time to muse. Just how much gas is actually in the ice. She says it's a lot and samples from time. Periods undergoing past climate changes could be used to help make predictions about the future. One of the biggest questions in terms of kind of the modern warming and look anthropogenic. Climate changes helmich warming. Do should we expect with the amount of co two that we have in the atmosphere now. Antarctica has been covered by an ice sheet for at least thirty million years. But it's actually pretty hard to find really old ice. John gooch is a geologist. At the university of minnesota he says while snowfalls constantly add new layers of ice to the top of the ice sheet the oldest layers at the bottom can disappear. That's because of geothermal heat coming up from the ground so the rocks are giving off heat of slowly over time and so that has the potential to melt ice at the bomb. Still bits of super old ice like that two point six million year old sample can sometimes be preserved at the ice sheets edges the older snippets of ice. That we've been able to find come from places where the ice has flowed up against a mountain range and been exposed at the surface in those spots though. The ice can be all jumbled up and messy. It's not nice layers that have been laid down sequentially over a long continuous stretch of earth's history to get a neatly layered ice sample like that. Scientists need to drill straight down through the thick icesheet so far the oldest ice collected that way goes back eight hundred thousand years. Gooch says the goal now is to drill down a couple of miles to reach ice. That's older a million to two million years old whether or not we'll be able to find it at the bottom of the ice sheet where we can recover a relatively simple continuous record. Is i guess. That's the sixty four thousand dollar question at team from china has drilling underway a group from europe. We'll start in november. What everyone wants is i-i samples that cover a key time period about a million years ago. When there was a dramatic shift in the planet cycle of ice ages. Those had been coming every forty thousand years or so but for some reason that pattern ended and it changed to every one hundred thousand years instead unto us working on climate. That's a really big deal. Eric wolf is a climatologist with the university of cambridge in the united kingdom. It's a really big question as to why that change is fundamental tower climates. Work in a way you could say. We don't really understand today's climate. If we don't understand why we live in one hundred thousand year will draw the forty thousand year world. The coronavirus pandemic basically ruins the arctic research season.

If you have suggestions for topics guests at other ideas please send up to info at scientific sense dot com and i can be reached at gil at eappen dot info mike. Yesterday's a jack boone's who's a professor in the department of ece fisa goal in planetary sciences unto colorado boulder. He is also vice president images for academic affairs in blue sage for disuse system system. Jack while thank you. Joe is good to be with you. Thanks for doing this so you at your team. On deeply involved in the upcoming nasa missions to the moon including The designed to place radiofrequency absolutely on the far side of the moon and be kevin deemed really back there for almost fifty years. Now i know that china s landed. I was actually looking at some photographs that just gained today from From their lander. I israel in india. Almost got there but Fleas land properly. And so so. What's our interest. What's sudden interest in going back to the moon after fifty years. Yeah i don't know that. I would characterize as a sudden interest i think on the part of the science community and really the exploration community interest has been there for a while but what has changed in the last decade is the cost doing missions And the accessibility of the moon in this new era in which we have now. Private companies like spacex and like the blue origin company. Jeff bezos company They've put considerable private resources in developing new rockets of with reusability to lower the launch costs and also technology which was extreme in the nineteen sixties to try to get to the moon. All hannity vetted from scratch now is relatively straightforward at gill as you mentioned Even a small countries like israel Private companies have contracts with nasa to fly payloads. Now it's it's it's realizable to Envision going to the moon at a relatively modest cost certainly in comparison to the sixties and seventies. Yes so that's a. It's a very interesting phenomenon. Now it's it's almost like a business model question. Space is Blue blue horizon blue origin. Laura gin and that is another company. Lakers peterson things. Well lockheed you ally the united launch alliance which is the lockheed and boeing Company as well they all have these new generation of launch vehicles that are capable of going to so nasa in some sense outsourcing Some of the transportation right to so captain made a selection or are they going to do essentially multiple companies. Do it the the plan is to have monk multiple companies just like the commercial crew program To the space station there's boeing and spacex And for the case of the moon for the un crude landers that Landers that are just carrying payloads nasa has identified a out a dozen companies To be able to transport a payloads to the moon and at the same time. They're also undergoing competition right now. They selected three companies to design as part of a public private partnership the next generation of human landers. So that's the same. Mostly the same group that has spacex blue origin and the third one is is dynamic which is a company in huntsville alabama rate. So it's nassar's goal here is They are they going to take contracts from other other countries do send pedal to the moon in these companies. The the way this is working now is nasa is buying services so they're no longer buying rockets or landers which they will then own operate Instead the philosophy is To buy a ride for example a seat On a human land or or by space for a payload so these companies that are responsible for indemnifying Making sure they have a proper insurance for losses They take A bit of the risk and and then proceed along those lots now. What that means is that the companies then they own the intellectual property they owned landers they rockets they own the The other transportation devices. So that means they can sell seats. They can sell payloads to for example a european space agency Or the russian space agency or individual companies. That might want to puts a payload on the moon Investigation in this kind of a lower gravity environment so it's much more entrepreneurial than what we had before and it lowers the cost to the taxpayer for doing all these things by the artist program. Which is the new human programs. The moon the Recently released cost to get the first woman in the next man to the moon by twenty twenty four is a factor of ten less than the apollo program. Yeah it's interesting. I remember jack I was involved a little bit on the economic side of the next generation. Space legal program two thousand two thousand one two thousand two timeframe and this was a program was supposed to replace the shuttle and we did not go forward with it and i guess so. What was the arranged with the russian system to get their astronauts into space station. Yeah the the problem was that you might recall The shuttle accident that occurred in two thousand three And then president. George w bush declared that the shuttle really wasn't safe And that needed to be replaced and it took a while. We're still in the process of of fully replacing it. The last shuttle launch was twenty eleven If i remember correctly so in the meantime in order to get to the space station What we did is contract with the russians to use their soyuz spacecraft to go back and forth the space station so we. What we did is the buy seats. Those seats cost about seventy five or eighty million dollars so they weren't cheap but eventually got us back and forth. He said before we get the details of the Admission stack help philisophical question so way we have technology advancing the about conflict. Television's really taking off machines. Getting lot smarter What does sort of the basis for sending humans Could be not accomplished thing that human could do with machines if that's a good question i'm glad you answered that you ask that question because Excuse me i think what we're looking for now is is Really different mode for doing work on services like the moon or mars. Excuse me in that. We unlike apollo you had a single astronaut. Geologists such as astronaut harrison schmitt on all seventeen doing classic field geology. With a shovel to now advance unit twenty-first-century. We're gonna to do. Is i like to say we're going to bring Silicon valley with us to the moon. So we're going to bring advanced robotics. Be telly operated. That will use a machine. Learning artificial intelligence And will team with the astronauts so that they will these. These rovers advance scouting. They will identify interesting places and then the role of the astronaut is to make critical decisions on what to investigate What the samples. Look like i. i still think it's true. I've been told from my colleagues who are geologists stromer But who are uninsured. Scientists in that the difference for example between. Let's say the The curiosity rover on mars. And what it's been doing and having a human on mars that the work that the curiosity rover has done last seven years could be done in two days by geologists. a that's the difference and to also bring back. You know better selected samples and so forth. So there's no replacing humans and that's not going to happen anytime soon but you you do your point being. You only wanna use humans when you actually have to. Because their time is valuable and they're expensive and also Walking around even on the surface of the moon is dangerous. Because the you know the a space where the asian micrometeorites another possible dangerous but going into this new environment. I think what we're going to be able to do is reduced risk and improved efficiency. The i don't remember the numbers but a human Mission is about ten x the cost of a non human mission. Obviously the the efficiency and like you say what begin out of it different but guess on the cost side. It's about the fact of a magnitude different you know. That's hard to say because robots still are very limited in what they can do. They're just so many things that only humans can do is a little bit of apples and oranges but yet you're probably right that on the ballpark about a factor of ten. Maybe even more. But there's also much more than a factor of ten improvement in efficiency. So you know. Those costs will balance out and obviously the advantage of a human is You know they've been. The unexpected happens in michigan learning in As long as you have heard of data to teach a machine but then the unexpected happens machines. noel exactly. The rover gets stuck. It suffers a mechanical problem. That If you have a human there at least in the vicinity can help fix it. And move orders you know i think about for example servicing of the hubble space telescope and that was done five times by human astronauts and The astronauts such as john grunsfeld did to the servicing missions was very clear that the telescope could not have been repaired in upgraded by anything other than humans because the tab the complexity of the task the ability to be able to get in and To make repairs Make on the spot. Decisions just You know there was no replacing that so hopefully humans have a few more years of Do i think we've got many years to tell you the truth. I think it's going to be you know in reading some of the literature. I think it's going to be a quite a long time if ever that. We have truly Intelligent self aware machines can operate with the same decision making kick be very good at repetitive calculations outstanding job of there but You know making creative innovative entrepreneurial. Decisions were We're nowhere close to that yet So i do that. A multiple missions being planned An international collaboration so he's the first one that is supposed to take off as leave. Yeah artists is the new name for the human missions to the moon Artemis in greek mythology was the sister of apollo The twin sister of apollo. She's the goddess of the moon. So that's very appropriate. Since nasa has already declared bet up for that first landing which nasa has been planning for twenty twenty four would Would have that first woman in the next man on the surface the first expedition by humans to the moon in the twenty first century. So optimistic applaud. Its name the program programming program. Yeah exactly right so so andrade damasio multiple things going on And so do we have sort of a space station like that is going to orbit the out. Yeah in fact. That's honored design. And we'll be under construction in the next few years has called the gateway lunar gateway. And it's it's not like the space station in the sense of being gigantic And being really limited to that single orbit the gateway is really more of a spacecraft is going to have a pulse in system using a new generation of solar electric bad is ion propulsion That will be piloted for potential for optometry use in going to mars. I have just a couple of modules that will be there it will be a place where astronauts coming from the earth on on the orion spacecraft which is a it plus the space launch system is a heavy lift vehicle that will take astronauts the moon they will dock at the gateway and then they will get into a reusable lander go to the surface. Come back in that lander and then the next crew that comes in will do the same thing so you don't throw everything away like we did during hollow in the nineteen sixties again. The reusability idea is Is key to keeping the costs down so so it is more dealer so can't be attached as as alright right. Ds change in the future. Cab edge more against it. We can in fact The japanese space agency jaksa recently committed to fly a module And nasa has invited others such as the russian space agency to think about them attaching A module as well so it definitely is modular. That way you can add habitats you can add laboratories And can can grow over time. But it's also the the idea is that it's going to be long duration spaceflight and it's away way from the earth's magnetic field so you've got the full range environment of what you would have going to mars. So i think nasa all also looks at. This is a prototype of the vehicle that would be sent to mars. Lucchese david some Conversations yet again. Remember that To go to mars you would rather start off. Start off from the moon. Is that still thinking or that. Exchange i don't think that's been decided but there's this potential real advantages of a loon. First of all launching from the moon versus the earth requires much less thrust. What what we call delta the. That's the change in velocity to Get off there. Because there's only one sixth gravity on the moon and secondly if we're successful in mining water from the minute we know now there's considerable amount of water at the polls of the moon That's hydrogen and oxygen. We can convert that potentially into rocket fuel. You wouldn't have to bring that from earth so the costs associated with launching some could be substantially reduced in doing this from the moon versus from your so people are actively working that right now and seeing if that might be the way to go i of think that might end up being How missions to To mars or undertaking so under optimus Are there plans to actually create a habitat a big enough habitat for people to stave or extended period of time. So nasa has designs. And once again i should mention this is. This is all international Insa is involved. The european space agency is involved in providing a module for the service module for the orion. It also will be working on the gateway. The canadian space agency is providing the robotic arm And the same will be true on the surface The idea is that the first few missions will of just get started That first nation in twenty twenty four is planned to go to the south pole of moon. Will we've never been to before and look at the water. Ice situation there but Over time by the end of the decade the expectation is that will have multiple habitats. And we'll have people staying there for long periods of time like the arctic station. It's run by the national science foundation. The mcmurdo station as called in which you have a number of scientists come in and visit for anywhere from a few weeks to staying for year here so salama but when the next generation space program was in progress space. Too big big project. I would imagine spacex Others cab this business plan so what's the clamps time Do that The gay yes. So it'll be somewhere between three and five days to get from the earth and you're right about. The tourism spacex already has a fide a japanese businessman. If i remember correctly who has bought a A ride not the surface of the moon but to orbit the moon on a spacex vehicle. Sometime in a in a few years but the it'll be in a three to five days to get to the gateway and then Another day to get down to the surface. So i fully expect by the end of the decade especially given the accessibility to the moon by the private sector and by isa companies That they will be selling seats to wealthy individuals to spend a A summer holiday on the moon is so if the if the gateway is expandable perhaps Taxpayers can make some money nasa. Well it might be. Yeah but but once again this is. The transportation for the most part is probably not going to be through nasa but by these individual companies who own their own rockets their spacecraft and now they will sell seats to to wealthy tourists. yeah and so You you mentioned the european space agency. You mentioned the canadian space agency of so. Is this like the space station. A larger collaboration or those are the three major ones. Yeah it is and you're right. There are Oh gosh there's probably a dozen or so. Companies countries rather involved in the international space station and nasa envisions this much the same thing And i to. I order all the countries that are involved in. The international space station have been invited to become involved with the gateway And so as i mentioned several have accepted with With enthusiasms others are still keeping that around and take a quick break jack. Benny come back to talk about the radio. Frequency of savitri on the far side of the more that you're designing you bet sounds good. This is a scientific sense. Podcast providing unscripted conversations bit leading academics and researchers on a variety of topics. You like to sponsor this podcast. Please reach out to in full at scientific sense dot com back Jack you're talking about upcoming missions to the moon Some of the manned mission some of some of the technology that you're sending up there there is a gateway bridges like the space station but attested propulsion its zone. Sorta are based entity source. And it's more dealer things could be attached to it. That may be subject is imploding. Creating that a launchpad so to speak to go to mars perhaps habitats that a large announced a mining for water mighty for hydrogen and other things and so he the program is called autonomous. So could be portal light program and underneath optimists. There are various things being planned right. So what are the The primary objectives all of those radius approved betas projects. I should say under under optimus. Yeah we'll go. let me let me start off by just looking at the difference with The apollo program because the apollo program ended fairly abruptly once the political goals were reached and it was never Really a sustainable program so Nasa and i think all of the governmental space agencies are looking for is for arsonist to be the beginning of a sustained presence on the moon and in space and using the moon as a stepping stone for human and robotic exploration of the solar system including getting the mars so the philosophy of artists is really quite different. So you're there the stay So you need to figure out how to live off the land. So that does mean as you're saying mining's water being able to grow crops being able to manufacture Equipments the habitats themselves from the From the of the regular or the soil material so using the the kind of advanced manufacturing capability three d. printing Electrolysis so that's a really different approach. And it means that what will be worked on is not just get there but a flag in the ground rather in full of soil and return on instead it means You know how do you figure out how to be there for the long haul so that means than learning how to to excavate how to build How to really maintain a life in a in a certain sense of independence. Part of the reason you want to do all that is because that's exactly what's going to be

It's the same band particularly if you've been yup it plane for fucking twenty years if you've been playing for twenty years as a band. That is not a fulltime ban. That can't make their their living off of. It rest assured that people are going to go in different directions. Even if you're from the exact same place. So which. I find pretty interesting.

"The latest in the Briana Taylor case and everything that's taken place in the last several days. We're learning a little bit more information. Now we have a 42nd video that just came out that shows The officer that apparently was struck by a bullet. But the question is, was he struck by the boyfriend? Or was it friendly fire? We still don't know that Louisville Metro Police Sergeant Jonathan Mattingly. Is now also intending to file a civil lawsuit against those have called him a murderer for his role in the fatal shooting of Briana Taylor and Todd McMurdo posted a video on Twitter that appears to show Mattingly being put onto the back of a truck bed and driven away after he was shot March 13th in front of Taylor's apartment, Taylor's breath and Kenneth Walker did fire his weapon. But the question is Is that the shot? That actually indeed struck the officer Don't know. Walker says he didn't know he was firing at police. He told them that a spokesman for Mattingly's criminal defense attorney declined to climate on how he obtained that video. So a lot of questions and still more questions than answers in this case, But we do know is that the boyfriend did shoot what we don't know is did he actually strike the officer? Not number to call 7022575396 is the number to call. Let's go, Bob. He's been waiting patiently on hold Bob. Thanks for calling in what's on your mind? Thanks plan Sure here today, So I guess he's not on but First and foremost for I feel for the family and the woman that you know lost their lives. It was tragic. It happens every day and I'm not just talking with police just in general. Uh, expensive in Chicago, for instance. But I'm a military brother and Military. You know, they made a lot of mistakes, too. There was you can't be perfect. You cannot be perfect. What happened That night? With all those shots fired. I have questions concerns about it like everybody else. But I think people really forget Brian. That without police Don't forget, Let's just go back to the most tragic thing that's ever happened to the United States. We were under attack. 9 11. Who do you think went up in the building to save all those people? And lost their lives. How about the two officers we had here that we're eating a gunner? Dinner. I remember. I remember. I think any eye covered it I covered and I interviewed that some of those family some of those family members of her key, but we don't talk about that. Well, I try to be a risk their wife. I agree with you. Okay, So, So Bob Bob. I agree with everything What you just said. And I have said on this show that the majority of police officers are heroes. And they're really good people. However, that cannot be an excuse for bad officers doing bad things like Officer shall Vin that we can't just say just because the majority of cops are heroes that we shouldn't hold all cops accountable. I agree to you on that 100%. We need to get rid of the bad apples because you know why Bran because they make the 99.9 blue. Look, I I don't know if it's 99.9. I don't know if I agree with you on that one. I don't think that if you take 1000 officers, there's only a few that are bad. I think the majority of officers are good cops, but I can tell you right now I've seen bad cops myself. I've seen. I don't know if it's listen. I don't want to put a percentage on it. Let's just agree that the majority of cops are good people. But we also agreed that there needs to be accountability. And I think in the history of this country for the most part, cops are not held to the same standard as regular citizens. If they break the law, and I think that needs to change, and I think that's why there's a lot of people across the country that are upset that you're angry, and that's why there are protests. I don't agree with the With the with the violent protesters burning down buildings, hurting cops shooting at cops. Those people are scumbags, and they belong in jail. But I do believe that there are people out there that are angry for legitimate reasons that I'll leave it at that. Bob. Bob, I appreciate it. Thank you, Bob. Appreciate the call. Thank you. And by the way, he brings up that situation where two police officers were shot at that pizza parlor. And he's absolutely right. That was horrible. And I still remember that day and I had to report on it to 575396. Let's go to Richard. Richard is next on the Vegas. Take Richard. What's going on? Why are you doing? I wanted first say I really loved your interview with Jean. Spare, uninterested means spare, you know, and I've been dishing debate bench, Carol, you're broke. But now love I would love to Going back through. The Briana Taylor case, You know, in the bad deal, the problem I have with and I think she was trying to get away with it. But my mom said sometimes you're the perpetrator and you're the victim. All in one meeting your best friend because she was in jail. I just heard this from me and another guy look into options, Doctor said for two years, speaking by the drug so her car was polio, Lee ran so User cook so by her using the car, and like I said she could do. She's a big time. Maybe she was forced to or whatever. Yeah, it ended up happening that her house Godchildren for no knock. Well, like I said, At worst case scenario, she had bad taste in men. And she was dating a bad dude. I know a lot of people that date a lot of bad people. They don't get shot eight times and they don't die going yet. This is a horrible, horrible tragedy. Who's a cop? Yeah. The reason they do no knock warrants because it was late at night. You get 90% of the time. You can get him in there asleep, and you're already there And then they arrested. You knock. People start shooting. You want who you are. Well, that's another thing. There is a safety thing behind it. Sure, you know that's another thing, Tio not Yeah. I just think this no knock thing needs. It's nonsense. I think it'll protect officers and it'll protect members of the public. Richard and I do appreciate your phone call. 2575396. We're talking about the Briana Taylor situation. What's to have taken place not only in the last couple days, but in the last hour Now we have a new video that shows on officer after a shooting being pulled onto the top of a police vehicle with an injured it looked like a gunshot wound to the leg. The question is Who is responsible for that? Is it the boyfriend quite possible, But it couldn't have been friendly fire. That's also possible. We need to know that information to me that changes everything in regards to my opinions on this case doesn't change it for you. 2575396 go to Travis. Travis is next on the Vegas Take. What's up. Good morning, sir. Good usual. Thank you. Travis. What's on your mind? Couple things. I get the cops make baseless takes 100%. But what if we got the police union is behind it. But every time a cop has anything wrong, they could police unions. Attorneys of all this crazy If you mess up, it works. You get fired. I doesn't work. I get fired. But how is the district attorney or something like that? But somebody in jail its wrong Get out 15 years later, because they made a steak. They don't get fired. You are you are 100%. You are 100% correct. Travis. I have a history 10 years I was a reporter. I covered shootings in this town that I did not think we're justified. And guess what.

So, Travis, do you remember the ice cream shooting where you had a guy that was pulled over for going through a stop sign driving an ice cream truck, and then his wife shows up in an ice cream truck. Do you remember that where the wife was shot and killed 100%. Okay, So here's the thing..

Evolution Through Storytelling with John Underkoffler

"John Welcome back to the show. Great to be back. Thanks tolerating me a second time always always we first connected back in. I think last summer we were talking earlier where we started recording. We did. Time's flown. Time has flown. It's unbelievable how much has happened. The listeners of course can't tell but I do think that you've developed some facial hair in the interesting month I have in the wilderness figuratively and literally and so the facial hair is hopefully going to protect me. Well I approved for what little or zero that that's worth. I hope the rest of your family does. Yes yes they do will. Thanks so much for joining us. I know there's been a lot in your playing you've been at the top of the list was the reverse merger you're discussing on the phone that's right so we in. October first facts oblong and a Denver based publicly traded company called glow point executed a merger. And so up until that time. Of course oblong had been privately held fairly standard bencher backed organization from the fiscal and organizational point of view. But there was one last bit of growing up in some sense that we needed to do. And that has been achieved through this merger which overall I think is proving to be a successful one but of course only time will tell and justice justice Monday in fact the ticker symbol changed to G. So that's you know that's exciting if nothing else. It's something my mom can look at dollar. Ob LG. I love it and this is very exciting. I'm sure for the future of the company because as you mentioned this is going to allow you to focus on some things that are in your core wheelhouse right core skill set so you tell us a little bit about that and maybe for folks that are listening in for the first time. They didn't catch the first interview. What is oblong? And what the hell are you up to write our story to date last last week? Since last year on so oblong industries. Now simply oblong INC is a is a technology company that I started in two thousand six two thousand four really two thousand sixteen incorporated as Oblong really to put into commercial and real world practice a set of ideas instead of I think fundamental ideas that I've been chasing since the late early late eighties early nineties around the idea of user interface as an understudied under acknowledge but absolutely primal and critical bits of the technological and digital experience. One that again as suggested you know hasn't seen nearly enough development hasn't seen nearly enough innovation and that from my point of view And into this later actually represents further stagnation in the field of you. I represents a kind of existential threat to humankind. I know that sounds very grand. But we'll talk about that anyway. I pursued that at MIT at the media lab through the number of degrees in a number of years that displeased my parents greatly. And then I pulled that set of ideas into the film minority report which was just a tremendous opportunity to place the ideas that I thought were most important kind of in front of a a very large number of human is to kind of implicitly. Asked the question. What do you think about a future? Where computation doesn't necessarily mean a mouse and keyboard. And I guess the third step was that partly in response to the two very enthusiastic both public and corporate reception of those ideas as depicted in the film. I started to oblong to turn them into reality today. Oblong principal activities are are to really on the product side. We make a thing called. Mezzanine is a product family of in room and remote collaboration tools. It is a collaboration tool that that word is kind of debauched pointed it is one of those words it so so much. Use that. It's kind of lost a lot of being but mezzanine and oblong means collaboration the way I made it which is real collaboration. Like what would you do in the real world if you had to work with a bunch of other people? And that's what Nixon got so it's much more about the content of documents. The applications the data getting that up on a lot of screens in addition to the faces. Which is what everyone else means by leveraging phases invoices only essentially and. Maybe it singled out as he says no really. The value of the work resides in a stuff the data the APPs the applications the documents images whatever and more than one at the same time. So it's not enough just to see you know the powerpoint heaven help us. Let's not see that at all. Ideally if we're working what we WANNA see spreadsheet but not just alone we want to see the spreadsheet next to the project plan next to the CAD model next to the you know the social media streaming analysis of all of the bits and pieces that make up the kind of high mind of the work process if you will. That's mezzanine today it's deployed. There's one thousand deployments literally on six continents. We haven't gone down and Arcada yet but maybe someday the rest ice shelf. It hasn't completely dried up and fallen off. We'll see one McMurdo station. Probably has a few people in it and then the other side of the House is both the call g speak. That is kind of the minority report operating system effectively and a set of incredibly talented designers and engineers who can build custom solutions usually around data navigation and kind of joint collaborative understanding of massive problems spaces for domain specific applications verse particularly customers. Who want to go really deep with this idea of you. I think it's so fascinating about this is. This is moving us to a place where we're going to be able to show each other what we mean instead of using. Just small mouth noises. It's going to move us to a place of communication where it's collaborative in a sense of we're going to be able to communicate for perhaps the first time because we think that we're communicating now but everyone's internal dictionary doesn't necessarily match up to our own people define words different ways things like that so this takes us to around beyond taxed beyond just pictures. Ensue combining them together so almost like a more perfect logos right. I love that infects with your permission. We put it into practice over on the PR side of the House immediately billboard. It's great stuff. Yeah but I think you're exactly right. I mean it's not that language is underpowered. It's tremendously efficacious in. Its wired into some of the deepest but more recently developed parts of our brain. But there's another whole side. That's spatial pictorial diagram. Matic almost and I love your show because that's really what it is so the act of collaborative seeing having everyone's sitting room or in a bunch of connected rooms and see exactly the same thing at the same time the same way with the other side of this of the C- Sees to show and in some sense. I think by by starting oblong by by creating mezzanine kind of compensating for the fact that although I can write although I have literacy in the literal version literal sense of that word. I'm illiterate when it comes to dry. My son is a phenomenal artist. And his magic for me to watch what he can express just outfit out the the business end of a silas. But I can't do that in I think in a way This is for me. Mezzanine and related technologies are like a brain projector away to to get out the ideas that I have in my mind. That are not desks. Not Mind everyone's line best described by language so I really dig your analysis there and I think it's something that you lose to it earlier. Existential threats are not going to be solved until we can translate the visions that we have for solutions because Thera so much more nuanced and sophisticated than just our small mouth voices would allude to. They are almost certain people in certain artists have been said to see an entire song or see a completed film. And it's you know we don't have the mind brain interfaces yet but I feel like this is a very strong step towards being able to starting to collaborate on these existential challenges right and that's a it's giving everyone kind of you know. Augmented communication tools to get on the same page and we all have weaknesses right so this is a way to start bridging the gap. So it's exactly right. I think the time is now right. I mean the the set of challenges both in a perilous and mortal and exciting and opportunistic that confronted in the twentieth century are existed a scale and a sculpted is unprecedented. Human history. Like this just more complicated stuff. We got US solve and that we should be solving and we're not going to do it of the sort of lone isolated genius is one that I think we can. I would love to get rid of here in. This century doesn't individuals are capable of doing great things individually but not again at the scale and the scope that the world's biggest problems need

Travel to Yunnan, China

"I'd like to welcome to the show. Zach and Leah from Peregrination Dash Travel Dot com and the peregrination YouTube channel. Who HAVE COME TO TALK TO US About Yunan? China Zach and Leah? Welcome to the show. Thank you so much for having us. We are so excited to be here and I have to get you to explain the term peregrination because it is not a term that I knew but I like it now. That told me what it means. So peregrination is the Latin word for a long or meandering journey. And that's the type of journey we are on and the Pasadena Twenty countries and we are currently in Antarctica so we have actually done a show about McMurdo base in Antarctica. We have never done a show from McMurdo base in Antarctica. Which is where we are doing this show from. But we're not talking about. You'll have to go listen to that show if you want that. So why are we talking about you? Not Well you're not is such a unique section of China that really has not been the main focus of any tourism in China up until the last ten years or so so it's a very unique separate section of the country that has a lot to offer and mainly it has a lot of beautiful scenery that is worth seeing indefinitely worth going to excellent and we have done a show about Yunan before. But it's been at least six eight years since we did a show on that region. Can you put this region on a map for us? So if you are looking at China it's in these southwestern region. China is a very large country as we know It's bordering Vietnam in house. We're learning which one of us the geographer aren't we excellent? And what are you gonNA lay out for us? It's basically a trip from the big city of could make all the way into the mountains and back to Kunming using may differ transportations in seeing things on the ancient tea horse trail as well as things that are brand new in on the innovative side of China will. Let's get to it in somebody till you started in Kunming. We'll start conveying. You'll probably fly in. We had to take a bus in from Vietnam and that worked out pretty well. We walked across the border and took a couple of buses. It took about six hours from there. But this podcast is focused on the two week trip. So you'll probably want to fly into Kunming. Their airport is very large. It's a brand new airport. It's only been there for six years. It's one of the fifty busiest airports in the world. I've no trouble getting air routes all throughout Southeast Asia and it's very accessible for many many different places. I remember a few years back when China went to build a hundred different airports in cities with more than a million population and I don't think I'd heard of any of them. There are a lot of people in China and there's a lot of new airports that they've built in so I'm surprised. It's one of the fifty busiest in the world. But only a little I know could mean itself. It already has six million people. It's a very large city with lots to offer but as we said before it has beautiful scenery even though it's such a sprawling city now they call it the sixty of eternal spring because the temperature is absolutely beautiful all the time and so much you can do in C. inexperienced there too. Is it in the lowlands still? It is six thousand feet level. Okay it is starting to get up there okay. Yeah and technically in the region. It's in the lowlands. I guess you could say because on the western side there's that bridge which it's gigantic as the Himalayas determined easy to get around the city also so but in the last few years. They've been working on the Kunming Rail Transit which just recently they completed most of. I think they're still working on a few sections of it but this makes traveling around the city ridiculously easy and at most. I think we spent one. Us dollar each other trip. So it's very affordable which is definitely a bonus if you're on a budget or if you're not still good so when staying in Kunming we recommend staying closer to the subway line because it makes it so much easier to get around and what's cool is that it has a lake nearby and it's not just it's city by itself and you can expect what you expect from all cities that it has a lot of good food. It has interesting architecture and has an old town has the new sprawling town but it also has cool interesting things like the world's biggest flower market in the southern region called the down man flower market. We took the sub or the metro. They're in it took about twenty minutes and then another ten minute walk but it makes everything so accessible. It's an easy place to travel once you get there the little out of the way to get there but when you get there it's really easy to navigate. And what are you going to recommend that we do while we're in the city itself? Well there's a few things we did which we really really enjoyed. The University district is an interesting place to be. If you've never been to China it's a brand experience for you just because Chinese culture. They're so active. So if you go to a regular park in specifically we're talking about Green Lake Park near the university district they have so many people out dancing in groups doing exercise routines you see families. You are being stopped on the street. Because they've never seen a Westerner. It's an interesting thing to experience. Also the flower market annually. They cut in south four point. One billion stems ridiculous number of flowers. We went there one day. Be should've gone when it was during the peak hours like at three. Am but we got there a little bit later and it was still just absolutely packed with flowers and women cutting flowers. Making flour crowns also really cool river walk which is free and it takes you through the new downtown or the more sprawling city area. The huge high-rises. It's going to the old town. Also it's relatively close to the newer section but you're able to see the rapid changes in architecture in the standard of living that this city has been going through within the past thirty years. It's so evident while this city was probably so small thirty years ago and it has blown up the back they got a huge airport really helps also in the metro and the new high speed rail system. There's a lot going on and it's important also touch on the cuisine. So Union Zine is very interesting. It's it's much different than the other parts of China. It is said to be generalized as more simple and less spicy but there are plenty of restaurants that incorporate this Hunan cuisine I'm making air quotes right now. Because it's hard to generalize what it is because it's it's made up of twenty six mountain tribes different types of cooking in its this huge melting pot of different flavors. Walk around find some street food. Enjoy THE CITY ENJOY. Old Town see the new architecture and enjoy the people around you street food. Is there a particular street food that you found there? The two enjoyed? Yeah so there is an interesting kind of cheese that they loved to preparing cheese isn't really something you think about. When you think of Chinese cuisine God at all yeah exactly. It's like something that even Chinese people are like. This is weird way. You were you eating that. Yeah Yeah exactly. It's a type of goat cheese. It's different than the goat cheese that you and I are more familiar with this ferry leathery sour almost hard textural cheese that they prepare sheets so they let it lay out in the sun and Harden almost taste almost like a pro vallone Interesting tangy flavor to it. They'll put it on sticks in the grill it cover it in a suite date sauce or or sugar over top of it or it can be sauteed in simple also simple flavors like tomatoes or onions interesting base flavor for different toppings Everywhere I mean you'll find it everywhere and also rose pastries you don't think about eating flowers. Most the time but fitting that rose pastries exist in the city of eternal. Spring is the biggest flower market in the country. Also in the same city. So rose pastries in strange leathery goat. Cheese would have to be our top to

Oh my God this is legitimately the cutest thing you're seeing over the radio Transmission was from the Amundsen Scott South Pole station ahmanson shadow yacht ought. Here's a Christmas Carol from the Italian station. Mario's a Kelly singing an Italian Christmas Carol. I really liked service. I firmly believe this cute Nathaniel would have to agree with you and it's a beautiful thing and you know the different stations and people they have to have to watch out for each other because it's it's difficult environment down there and annual listening at McMurdo Station in a Blue Penguin Hoodie. Sure I'll add wondered if this caroline could be heard beyond Antarctica by shortwave listeners. And other parts of the world he wanted to know how far can these transmissions Israeli travel so how far away were people able to listen well. Before the Caroline Begin thin you'll put out an alert to shortwave radio listener saying hey if you I can hear this email us a lot of snow and people did. They were able to tune in. He got emails from the Netherlands. South America places far away from Antarctica. Some people were able to catch snippets of this singing at the bottom of the world so today. On the show shortwave. podcasts looks at shortwave radio how it works how it travels. And how anything of result is leveraging. A community of shortwave radio listeners for science. Emily Kwong are short. We've expert is nathaniel. Yes he's an assistant professor of physics and Engineering at the University of Scranton in Pennsylvania. Okay so obviously I know shortwave the charming daily science podcast. But tell me about shortwave. As in shortwave radio so since since the nineteen hundreds we've been using radio waves to communicate. The waves are all different sizes the lower the wave's frequency the longer the wavelength one. Of the unique characteristics. Of shortwave shortwave. Radio is that it can travel. The radio. Waves can travel long distances very long distances around the world because there are three to thirty megahertz hurts in frequency they travel through space to this electrically charged part of our atmosphere called the ionosphere and are reflected or refracted back down to Earth. If we didn't did not have the atmosphere these shortwave signals would travel off into space and not be able to travel around the globe but luckily for us. They can travel around the globe. They they propagate far distances and those with receivers on earth are able to listen. Nathaniel loves shortwave. Because you don't need a lot of equipment to send and capture one of these transmissions oh it can be incredibly simple. You need a transmitter on one side and a receiver on the other and a decent antenna and when I say A transmitter there. There are some people who they make their goal to talk as far around the world is possible with that as little as equipment as possible as low power as possible so maybe using a quarter of a awas and ten dollars worth of parts people are able to send signals that. Get the go all the way around the globe. This is the ultimate Lo fi form of communication gathering. Yeah and that communication could be anything broadcast propaganda spice stations emergency information weather reports rag chewing which is a term mm to describe people just talking about their daily life so radio twitter. Yeah the transmission just has to fall within the right frequency range to count ashore wave and there's an international community of hobby radio operators who seek out a special license from their respective governments to do this. That's called Ham Radio Ham. Yeah that's the hobby Of using this radio so nathaniel discovered that community on a boy Scout Jamboree Ham radio operator had set up a station in the middle of the woods and just turned all his crackling and buzzing sounds coming out of a radio and I heard him talking to these faraway places and and that was just really fascinating fascinating to me and he was hooked got his license in Nineteen Ninety Eight. Just a teenager transmitting to whoever's listening in the northern New Jersey New York metropolitan area area so just pure bruce springsteen propaganda it was mostly just his call son and seventy three. This is W. Two and AF whiskey to November Alpha Foxtrot threaten seventy-three means best regards. It's a pretty common ham. Radio sign off eventually he upgraded to a better transmitter through a wire out the window of his bedroom and attached hatched tree in his front yard and he managed to get a hold of a station in Hungary and it was just a very short contact. But you know that was pretty neat you just throw a wire out your window. And you're able to talk to guy in Hungary and and it worked in these moments stayed with him propelling his scientific methodology and his his career cool. Okay so tell me a little bit about that. How his nathaniel used shortwave for science in a lot of interesting ways because disturbances happening in the ionosphere on a sphere space weather solar wind conditions? All of that would affect radio waves so in Grad school he was able to show how a solar flare caused aradio blackout so cool. Yeah and during the big two thousand seventeen solar eclipse which I missed because it was cloudy. Tragedy so sad but Nathaniel hosted a community science experiment through his group Ham side. The group measured how the eclipse affected the transmission of medium and high frequency radio waves. And the way he's using radio for scientific inquiry is so innovative that this year the National Science Foundation awarded him a one point. Three million dollar grant deign to do what well he wants to bring. Universities and this network of Ham radio operators together to track. What's going on in the ionosphere where short waves propagate in a more day to day way which we we don't really do right now? No not really. We don't really understand what happens on short timescales like why is the fear doing this in New York City but doing doing something else in Pennsylvania overhead and Pennsylvania and. Why is that important to understand the ionosphere to that level of detail? Well we as a planet Senate are really dependent on things happening in space and disturbances in the ionosphere do affect communication satellites global positioning systems. which are used to land planes all these tools? We rely on to keep us safe and connected and so it's very important to try to understand how everything is is is connected together in order to make this systems more robust and and in order to make them work. And in order to you know transmit Christmas carols around the world essential I think a lot of Ham radio for me has always been about connecting people from different parts of the world together. And and you know if you if you even look at like why Ham radio exists if you actually look in the the laws I believe. It says that it's for international goodwill and It's important to try and promote this international goodwill kwon. Do you think our podcast connects people all around the world. I mean we don't have three million listeners. That's how how many people listen to him radio now yet. Not with that attitude okay. I know world domination is your project but I will say I got into radio because I enjoyed tuning in and not knowing what I was going to hear our podcast definitely. Does that help so I think so so from our team to whoever is out there listening in in the world happy holidays. Happy Holidays
