"mike helium" Discussed on KNST AM 790

"One seven that's an w two three five five one seven. Welcome back to coast to coast AM, right? It was do sky got it right there on Twitter. That was Zach wild with his cover version of come together. Pretty cool. All right. Robert, let's get back to the phone calls. We've got a lot to get in here. And I wanna go. Let's see let's go out west Mike in Reno Nevada. You're up next on coast to coast. Welcome. Couple of quick questions. Would it be necessary or advantageous to I build a moon base? Is there healing suite on the moon? And Secondly this puzzles me greatly. I think I'm correct on this the Russians have never left earth orbit with a man craft. I don't know if it's the van Allen belts. I don't know why and getting controversial. If I may, you know, we have a lot of political divisions in this country. I don't think we could do anything. And and I find it interesting. I two nations in space when non-christian and in a sense on capitalist, Nazi Germany and communist Russia. So I'm looking at China, and I'm looking at India. I know that scroll statement, but at least the first two questions, Robert thank you for that. Mike helium three on the moon, the moon base. All right. A couple of things number one quickly. Yes, you're correct Russian. With manned spacecraft have never gone by the low-earth orbit. They sent around fourteen tropes. Tomorrow's and all of them failed. They sent several successful probes to Venus and to the moon. They actually did land a lunar Rover called Luna hot. But but that that's what they've done. Now. May of course, they've had many successful flights to lower warp, and they certainly have done that. But. Okay. The big question. Do we need to go to the moon before we go to Mars? No the and for quite a while. I've argued that we should make Mars our goal because I- Mars is where the scientists Mars is where the challenges and Marsh where the future is. Now. The Trump administration has nevertheless decided on making the moon. The proximate goal. Nasa is frankly, not willing to embrace the challenge of humans to Mars parts of NASA are willing to embrace the challenge of a return to the moon. However, in fact, the dominant faction in Nassar right now, isn't even willing to do that. And they're pushing for a lunar orbiting space station, which they say it's a necessary step on the way to the moon, which is frankly ridiculous. And I was at a conference in Orlando. A couple of months ago where NASA official actually got up and said why we building the station. We're not ready to land on the moon. We don't know how to land on. I think what are you talking about? We landed on the moon fifty years ago. And so NASA has got a kid. It's it it. It's a confidence back and perhaps in that sense returning to the moon. If they actually did it Mike being full step in terms of returning NASA to a can-do agency instead of a can't do agency. But this lunar orbiting station is a disaster. If you if you want to know, what is it significance is imagine I offered you the following deal. I wanna rent you an office in Saskatoon, Canada, the rents one hundred thousand dollars a month. It's a thirty year lease there's no exit clause. You have to pay to build the building you have to spend one month per year for the rest of your life in fast catoon, and if you want to fly anywhere from where you live you must travel through Saskatoon from now on okay? Is this a deal that you would like I you be insane to accept such deal? That's the deal that Nasr's currently offering America by building a lunar orbiting space station, which is in a weird orbit, by the way. It's an a two week orbit around the moon. And it means that only once every two weeks you could travel to it only once every two weeks you could travel from it to the moon or from the moon to it. So if you're actually on the surface of the moon, and you wanna come home the bus only comes by once every two weeks, which actually imposes risk on the lunar base. It's it's not something you want it all so this is a a really bad idea. And you know, it's one of these things where if NASA insists they must go to the moon before we go to Mars, then my answer to them as well. I don't agree with that. But if you must go to the moon before you go to Mars, then get on with it. Let's go to I come up with something else. You have to do before you go to. The mood. Yeah. That's right. That's right. The first time caller, let's go to John in Chesapeake Virginia. John. Welcome. John. Okay. We don't have John. So let's go to international. Let's go to Joe in British Columbia. You're up next on coast. Oh, hi, Jimmy. How you doing? I'm doing good. Joe? Okay. How is it must've helping to? Oh, thank you. I have one question for MRs upping. Well, there's some scientists believe that days a poisonous gas. I'm the atmosphere of the Mars xenon gas. Is it true? Is it the dot Masara Mars? Is it possible for the atmosphere is not breathe the ball because it's mostly carbon dioxide carbon dioxide is not poisonous. We have it here on earth. Of course. It's it's food for plants. But it's not what we breathe we. But it it's not poisonous like poison gas or cyanide or something it's, but you do need to have a space suit on Mars where you have an oxygen supply or a habitat on Mars, which has got an oxygen containing atmosphere in it. How much oxygen is in the atmosphere on the surface of Mars meat free oxygen? Yeah. Very little like tenths of a percent. A tenth of a percent. So we take your it's insignificant. Right. But you know, there was no free oxygen on earth to speak of until they were plants here. Right. Right. Free oxygen is an artifact of plants because oxygen very reactive. It doesn't want to stay free at wants to bind to to other things like metals carbon other stuff. And so it's plants that have to keep as it were unpacking it and putting it into the atmosphere with our space telescopes. If we ever spine a spectrum of a atmosphere of a planet orbiting another star. And we see it has free oxygen that will tell us this life there. Let's go to wildcard Dave out in New Jersey. Dave, welcome. You're up next. Hey, jamie. It's really not Dave from New Jersey. It's not who is it. It's I'm a Martian Jimmy, okay day. Be two three seven nine is my name. Okay. Fair enough day fair enough. Okay. Now, we have been demars I've been there regularly. And I it was McDonald's hair and next to McDonald's was LeBron's Bronco. Really on Mars. No, not really, okay. I was gonna say what's the cost of a Big Mac on Mars versus here. That's my question. What do you have for Robert Jubran tonight? Oh, well, I'm sorted. I'm sure we went to the move by. The they had the space by the space buggy download services mood. The you're talking about the like a very lightweight. Hot. Rod. It was it was a two person Bucky and it was built. So light that you you pick it up and carry it around even on earth. I mean, it was like the weight of a bicycle and what about and Dave thank you for the phone call, by the way, that's a great question. And this is the other Robert I've been very confused. Why don't we send something like that tomorrow? I mean, the Mars Rover right now that it's you know, it's slow it's tiny. It's small. Why don't we build a hot ride like the the lunar Rover, and let's let's cover some ground. Well, the thing is this the lunar Rover could be fast. Because it had you mean drivers in it. The the Rover curiosity Rover that we have on Mars is actually the size of a Volkswagen. It it's it's it's bigger and much heavier than the lunar Rover was, but it's an automated Rover, and you know, there's a time lag could radio signals from earth to Mars now is the curiosity Rover does have some smarts. If. It will avoid walking right into Iraq or something. But the, but nevertheless, it has to be told what to do. And then it travels one hundred yards and then it stops and waits for the next command. Let's I've got a couple of personal questions. I'm going to get those out of the way after this next phone call. Let's go to Charlie in Bristol, Tennessee, Charlie you're up next. Hey, guys, fascinating show has anyone ever considered? Maybe they've done this sending maybe anaerobic bacteria on of probes or maybe even cockroaches copra three indestructible. Still need oxygen though. Right. I would think Robert is what about doing the opposite sending life to Mars like bacteria or bugs? Well, of course in the long run. We're people and people will bring back terrier with them NASA right now has a program in which they try to make sure that nothing. No bacteria get to Mars because they're afraid that if bacteria get to Mars, we won't know, if we find bacteria on Mars, weather, we brought them or whether they were already there. Now. In fact, let me tell you if there's native life on Mars, they'll also be fossils of that life on Mars. That's right native. It was there in the past. And so this is really a false fear. And there's a lot of people NASA going around right now saying we should never send people to Mars because think you're sending people you Wilson bacteria. And then they say, we'll never know if there's life on Mars. We go to Mars with people. We find life on Mars. If it's native will also find fossils and other biomarkers, and will know that it was there before we got there. It's the same way, you know, that the French actually exist that they didn't all just show up when you did. Because you go to France, you see that there's buildings that were built before you were there. Okay. And you know, it it's that's just how it is. And and this idea that we won't know if we brought it because the fossils could have been created along with the planet. That's like the people that don't believe in evolution and say, God created the fossils when he created the planet. And so there really weren't dinosaurs. It's just you know. God playing a trick on us or something is a ridiculous idea. But let me jump in before we run out of time. Speaking of fossils. There was an image that surfaced about three years ago that for the life of me, I couldn't figure out and it looked like and there was two in the picture of floating spoon. And that there's no other way to describe it. It was a spoon that was floating with the shadow and NASA said that that was just natural wind formations over millions and millions of years. Well, as far as I know I've never seen a floating spoon here on earth. But anyway, did you see that image? What do you think that is could that have been something leftover? I I'm actually not familiar with that image. But once again, I think images of that type there's any number of of of of things photographs of rock, you know, in in in Santa Fe, where I live for a little while there's a a rock it looks like a camel, and it wasn't a sculpture. It's just purely natural. But it sure as hell looks like a camel we have Castle Rock here in Colorado, the John F Kennedy mountain, the these things are not proof. But believe me when we send people to Mars or we're gonna go fossil hunting, and we will probably find fossils. And once again, if there's native life on Mars, there's fossils of it. Because if it's native it was there in the past, and it we'll have left remains when how open are you to when I look at as some of the curiosity images that three sixty and I look around at the surface of Mars it. Just looks like a debris field to me. It doesn't look natural most of it looks natural. But there are things there that just seem a little out of place. How open are when you look at those photographs. Do you just dismiss everything is just natural? Just rocks is just old. That's that's all it is. Or is there a possibility that there is something there are certain? I mean, there's debris on Mars Mars gets hit by meteors, and we've actually found some on the surface of Mars, and you know, there's been floods on the surface of Mars this in all sorts of geological activities on the surface of Mars, but to might like debris of artifacts. No. I I I don't see that. I do. It's really weird. You know? And it's just I feel like when I look at some of these images and you look off in the distance. There are just things that are there that don't seem natural. And I can't explain check it out. I know right. What's up next for you? Robert. What's up next to me? Well, I have a new book coming out next spring. What's it called? It's called the case for space the case for space, and that's going to release when spring probably around me it'll be released in time for the anniversary of the moon landing. You know next year next July is the fiftieth anniversary of the Apollo eleven landing on the moon. And so we're going to have the book out a little bit in advance of that Sobe in time for the the big anniversary. It's too bad that we're celebrating the fiftieth anniversary of Apollo eleven instead of saying the twentieth anniversary of Mars landing number one. You know, that's really what we should be celebrating right now. But any case that anniversary will remind us of what we once were. And what we need to be again. I've got sixty seconds, actually. Forty five quick question has Eli on musk ever contacted, you sure I know Eli mushed. And in fact, my book the case for Mars played a significant role in convincing him to make Mars his life's calling and with that conversation is he asking your advice or is. He just no he doesn't do that the the, but I talk with I, you know, I exchange emails with him about like once a year or so I mean you knock that accessible anymore. Yeah. But I I certainly interact with his people and exchange ideas. The next book is the case for Mars guest Roberts case for space. Now that people can get right now is the case for Mars. And then the book that's coming out next spring is the case for space. Then it's gonna talk about the entrepreneurial space revolution. What it means for the new businesses? We create on.

"mike helium" Discussed on KFI AM 640

"Three five five one seven. KFI AM six forty. More stimulating talk. Welcome back to coast to coast AM. All right. It was due sky. Got it right there on Twitter that was wild with his cover version of come together. Pretty cool. All right. Robert, let's get back to the phone calls. We've got a lot to get in here. And I wanna go. Let's see let's go out west Mike in Reno Nevada. You're up next on coast to coast, welcome. Thanks TIMMY couple of quick questions. Would it be necessary or advantageous to I build a moon base? Is there healing suite on the moon? And Secondly this puzzles me greatly. I think I'm correct on this the Russians have never left earth orbit with a man craft. I don't know if it's the van Allen belts. I don't know why and getting controversial. If I may, you know, we have a lot of political divisions in this country. I don't think we could do anything and. And I find it interesting. I two nations in space when non Christian and in a sense on capitalist, Nazi Germany and communist Russia. So I'm looking at China, and I'm looking at India. I know that's a strong statement. But at least the first two questions, Robert thank you for that. Mike helium three on the moon, the moon base. All right. Well couple of things number one quickly. Yes, you're correct. Russian with manned spacecraft have never gone beyond low-earth-orbit, they sent around fourteen tropes. Tomorrow's and all of them failed. They sent several successful probes to Venus and to the moon. They actually did land a lunar Rover called the Luna hot. But but that that's what they've done. Now. Of course, they've had many successful flights to lower orbit that. They certainly have done that. But. Okay. The big question. Do we need to go to the moon before we go to Mars? No the and for quite a while. I've argued that we should make Mars our goal because Mars is where the scientists Mars is where the challenges and Mars where the future is. Now. The Trump administration has nevertheless decided on making the moon. The proximate goal. Nasa is frankly, not willing to embrace the challenge of humans to Mars parts of NASA are willing to embrace the challenge of a return to the moon. However, in fact, the dominant faction in Nassar right now, isn't even willing to do that. And they're pushing for a lunar orbiting space station, which they say is a necessary step on the way to the moon, which is frankly ridiculous. And I was at a conference in Orlando a couple of months ago where NASA official actually got up and said. Why are we willing to station? We're not ready to land on the moon. We don't know how to land on. I think what are you talking about? We landed on the moon fifty years ago. And so NASA has got a kid. It's it it. It's a confidence back and perhaps in that sense returning to the moon. If they actually did it might be useful step in terms of returning NASA to a can-do agency instead of a can't do agency. But this lunar orbiting station is a disaster. If you want to know what it is it significance is imagine. I offered you the following deal. I wanna rent you an office in Saskatoon, Canada, the rents a hundred thousand dollars a month. It's a thirty year lease there's no exit clause. You have to pay to build the building you have to spend one month per year for the rest of your life. Insects catoon, and if you want to fly anywhere from where you live you must travel through Saskatoon from now on okay? Is this a deal that you would like I you being seen to accept such a deal? That's the deal that Nash is currently offering America by building lunar orbiting space station, which is in a weird orbit, by the way. It's an a two week orbit around the moon. And it means that only once every two weeks you could travel to it only once every two weeks you could travel from it to the moon or from the moon to it. So if you're actually on the surface of the moon, and you wanna come home the bus only comes by once every two weeks, which actually imposes risk on the lunar base. It's not something you want it all so this is a a really bad idea. And you know, it's one of these things where it's NASA insist they must go to the moon before we go to Mars, then my answer to them as well. I don't agree with that. But if you must go to the moon before you go to Mars, then get on with it. I come up with something else. You have to do before you go to the moon. Yeah. That's right. That's right. The first time caller, let's go to John in Chesapeake Virginia. John. Welcome. John. Okay. We don't have John. So let's go to international. Let's go to Joe in British Columbia. You're next on coast. Hi, jimmy. How you doing? I'm doing good. Joe? Okay. How is helping? I'm fine too. Thank you. I have one question for MRs upping. Some scientists believe that is a poisonous gas. I'm server. Atmosphere of the Mars. Then on gas. Is it true is it dot Masara? Both people the atmosphere is not breathable because it's mostly carbon dioxide carbon dioxide is not poisonous. We have it here on earth. Of course. It's it's food for plants. But it's not what we breathe we. But it's not poisonous like poison gas or cyanide or something it's, but you do need to have a space suit on Mars where you have an oxygen supply or a habitat on Mars, which has got an oxygen containing atmosphere and how much oxygen is in the atmosphere on the surface of Mars meat free oxygen. Yeah. Very little like a tenth of a percent. A tenth of a percent. So we take your it's a it's insignificant. Right. But you know, there was no free oxygen on earth to speak of until they were plants here. Right. Right. Free oxygen is an artifact of plants because oxygen very reactive. It doesn't want to stay free at wants to bind to to other things like metals carbon other stuff. And so it's plants that have to keep as it were unpacking it and putting it into the app store with our space telescopes. If we ever find spectrum of a atmosphere of a planet orbiting another star. And we see it has to be oxygen. That will tell us this life there. Let's go to wildcard Dave out in New Jersey. Dave, welcome. You're up next. Hey, jamie. It's really not Dave from New Jersey. It's not who is it. It's I'm a Martian, Jimmy. Okay. Dave. Be two three seven nine is my name. Okay. Fair enough fair. And okay now, we have been to Mars. I've been there regularly. And I it was McDonald's hair. And actually McDonald's was a Bronco really on Mars. No, not really, okay. I was gonna say what's the cost of a Big Mac on Mars versus here. That's my question. What do you have for Robert Zuber tonight? Oh, well, I'm sort of not sure we went to buy. Well, we were they had this space buggy how they give this space. Buggy download services mood the talking about. It was it like a very lightweight. Hot. Rod. It was it was a two person Bucky, and it was built so light that you could pick it up and carry it around even on earth. I mean, it was like the weight of a bicycle and what about Dave? Thank you for the phone call, by the way, it's a great question. And this is the other Robert I've been very confused. Why don't we send something like that? Tomorrow's I mean, the Mars Rover right now that it's you know, it's slow it's tiny. It's small. Why don't we build a hot ride like the lunar Rover? And let's let's cover some ground. Well, the thing is this the lunar Rover could be fast because it had you mean drivers in it. The the Rover curiosity Rover that we have on Mars is actually the size of a Volkswagen. It it's it's it's bigger and much heavier than the lunar Rover was, but it's an automated Rover, and you know, there's a time lag could radio signals from earth to Mars now is the curiosity Rover does have some smarts. If. It will avoid walking right into Iraq or something. But the, but nevertheless, it has to be told what to do. And then it travels a hundred yards and then it stops and waits for the next command. Let's I've got a couple of personal questions. I'm going to get those out of the way after this. Next phone, call go to Charlie in Bristol, Tennessee, Charlie you're up next. A fascinating show has anyone ever considered? Maybe they've done this sending maybe anaerobic bacteria on levels probes. Or maybe even cockroaches copper accuser indestructible. Still need oxygen though. Right. I would think Robert what about doing the opposite sending life to Mars like bacteria or or bugs? Well, of course in the long run. We're people and people will bring back area with wisdom. Nasa right now has a program in which they try to make sure that nothing no bacteria get tomorrow because they're afraid that if bacteria get to Mars, we won't know, if we find bacteria on Mars, weather, we brought them or whether they were already there. Now. In fact, let me tell you if there's native life on Mars, they'll also be fossils of that life on Mars. That's right native. It was there in the past. And so this is really a false fear. And there's a lot of people NASA going around right now saying we should never send people to Mars because you're sending people you Wilson bacteria. And then they say, we'll never know if there's life on Mars, we go to Mars with people we find life on Mars if it's native. We'll also find fossils and other biomarkers. And will know that it was there before we got there. It's the same way, you know, that the French actually exist that they get into all just show up when you did. Because you go to France, you see that there's buildings that were built before you were there. Okay. And you know, I it it's that's just how it is. And and this idea that we won't know if we brought it because the fossils could have been created along with the planet. That's like the people that don't believe in evolution and say, God created the fossils when he created the planet. And so there really weren't dinosaurs. It's just, you know, God playing a trick on us or something is ridiculous idea, but sway. Let me jump in before we run out of time. Speaking of fossils. There was an image that surfaced about three years ago that for the life of me, I couldn't figure out and it looked. Like, and there was two in the picture of floating spoon. And there's no other way to describe it. It was a spoon that was floating with the shadow and NASA said that that was just natural wind formations over millions and millions of years. Well, as far as I know I've never seen a floating spoon here on earth. But anyway, did you see that image? What do you think that is could that have been something leftover? I I'm actually not familiar with that image. But once again, I think images of that type there's any number of things photographs of rock, you know, in in in Santa Fe, where I live for a little while there's a a rock that looks like a camel, and it wasn't a sculpture. It's just purely natural. But it sure as hell looks like a camel we have Castlerock here in Colorado there, John F Kennedy mountain the these things are not proof. But. Believe me, we send people to Mars or we're going to go fossil hunting, and we will probably find fossils. And once again, if there's native life on Mars, there's fossils of it. Because if it's native it was there in the past, and we'll have left remains when how open are you to when I look at some of the curiosity images that three sixty and I look around at the surface of Mars, it just looks like a debris field to me. It doesn't look natural most of it looks natural. But there are things there that just seem a little out of place. How open are when you look at those photographs. Do you just dismiss everything is just natural? Just rocks is just old. That's that's all it is. Or is there possibility that there is something there? There are certain. I mean, there's debris on Mars Mars gets hit by meteors, and we've actually found some on the surface of Mars and. You know, there's been floods on the surface of Mars this in all sorts of geological activities on the surface of Mars, but to make like debris of artifacts. No. I I don't see that. I do. It's really weird. You know?.

"mike helium" Discussed on KOA 850 AM

"To coast AM is on KOA, NewsRadio eight fifty AM and ninety four one FM. Welcome back to coast to coast AM, right? It was do sky got it right there on Twitter. That was Zach wild with his cover version of come together. Pretty cool. All right. Robert, let's get back to the phone calls. And we've got a lot to get in here. And I wanna go let's see let's go out west Mike in Reno Nevada. You're up next on coast to coast. Welcome. Thanks to me a couple of quick questions. Would it be necessary or advantageous to I build a moon base? Is there helium tweet on the moon? And Secondly this puzzles me greatly. I think I'm correct on this the Russians have never left earth orbit with a man craft. I don't know if it's the van Allen belts. I don't know why and getting controversial. If I may, you know, we have a lot of political divisions in this country idol think we could do anything. And and I find it. It interesting. I two nations in space when non Christian and a sense on capitalist Nazi Germany and communist Russia. So I'm looking at China, and I'm looking at India. I know that scroll statement, but at least the first two questions, Robert thank you for that. Mike helium three on the moon, the moon base. All right. A couple of things number one quickly. Yes, you're correct Russian with manned spacecraft have never gone beyond low-earth orbit. They sent around fourteenth robes, tomorrow's and all of them failed. They sent several successful probes to Venus and to the moon. They actually did land a lunar Rover called Luna hot. But but that that's what they've done. Now. May of course, they've had many successful flights to lower warp. It. They certainly have done that. But. Okay. The big question. Do we need to go to the moon before we go to Mars? No the and for quite a while. I've argued that we should make Mars our goal because I- Mars is where the scientists Mars is where the challenges and Mars where the future is. Now. The Trump administration has nevertheless decided on making the moon. The proximate goal. Nasa is frankly, not willing to embrace the challenge of humans to Mars parts of NASA are willing to embrace the challenge of a return to the moon. However, in fact, the dominant faction in Nassar right now, isn't even willing to do that. And they're pushing for a lunar orbiting space station, which they say is necessary step on the way to the moon, which is frankly ridiculous. And I was at a conference in Orlando. A couple of months ago where NASA official actually got up and said, why are we building the station. We're not ready to land on the moon. We don't know how to land on. What are you talking about? We landed on the moon fifty years ago. And so NASA has gotta get it. It it. It's a confidence back and perhaps in that sense returning to the moon. If they actually did it might be useful step in terms of returning massachu- can-do agency instead of a can't do agency. But this lunar orbiting station is a disaster. If if you want to know, what is it significance is imagine I offered you the following deal. I want to rent you an office in Saskatoon, Canada, the rents a hundred thousand dollars a month. It's a thirty year lease there's no exit clause. You have to pay to build the building you have to spend one month per year for the rest of your life in fast catoon, and if you want to fly anywhere from where you live you must travel through Saskatoon from now on okay? Is this a deal that you would like I you be insane to accept such a deal? That's the deal. But NASA is currently offering America by building a lunar orbiting space station, which is in a weird orbit, by the way. It's an weak orbit around the moon. And it means that only once every two weeks you could travel to it only once every two weeks you could travel from it to the moon or from the moon to it. So if you're actually on the surface of the moon, and you wanna come home the bus only comes by once every two weeks, which actually imposes risk on the lunar base. It's it's not something you want it all so this is a a really bad idea. And you know, it's one of these things where if NASA insists they must go to the moon before we go to Mars, they my answer to them as well. I don't agree with that. But if you must go to the moon before you go to Mars, then get on with it. Let's go to I come up with something else. You have to do before you go to the. The mood. Yeah. That's right. That's right. The first time caller, let's go to John in Chesapeake Virginia. John. Welcome. John. Okay. We don't have John. So let's go to international go to Joe in British Columbia. You're up next on coast. Hi, jimmy. How you doing? I'm doing good. Joe? Okay. How must've Villepin? I'm fine too. Thank you. I have one question for MRs up in. Well, some scientists believe that days a poisonous gas. On the atmosphere of Mars bitches then on gas. Is it true? Is it the dot Masara Mars? Is it baseball. People. The atmosphere is not breathe the ball because it's mostly carbon dioxide carbon dioxide is not poisonous. We have it here on earth. Of course. It's it's food for plants. But it's not what we breathe we. But it's not poisonous like poison gas or cyanide or something it's, but you do need to have a space suit on Mars where you have an oxygen supply or a habitat on Mars, which has got an oxygen containing atmosphere in it. How much oxygen is in the atmosphere on the surface of Mars meat free oxygen very little like a tenth of a percent. A tenth of a percent. So we you take your it's insignificant. But you know, there was no free oxygen on earth to speak of until they were plants here. Right, right. Free oxygen is an artifact of plants 'cause oxygen. Trae reactive doesn't want to stay free at wants to bind to to other things like metals carbon other stuff. And so it's plants that have to keep as it were unpacking it and putting it into the atmosphere with our space telescopes. If we ever spine a spectrum of atmosphere of a planet orbiting another star. And we see it has free oxygen that will tell us this life there. Let's go to wildcard Dave out in New Jersey. Dave, welcome. You're up next. Hey, jamie. It's really not Dave from New Jersey. It's not who is it. It's I'm the Martian, Jimmy. Okay. Dave. Be two three seven nine is by name. Okay. Fair enough day Farren. Okay. Now, we have been demars I've been there regularly. And I it was McDonald's hair. And actually McDonald's was a Bronco really on Mars. Not really, okay. I was gonna say what's the cost of a Big Mac on Mars versus here. That's my question. What do you have for Robert Jubran tonight? Oh, well, I'm sorted. I'm sure we went to the move by. They had the space by the how they get the space buggy down serves mood. The oh, you're talking. It was the it was like a very lightweight. Hot. Rod. It was it was a two person Bucky, and it was built so light that you you could pick it up and and carry it around even on earth. I mean, it was like the weight of a bicycle. And what about Dave? Thank you for the phone call, by the way, it's a great question. And this is the other the Robert I've been very confused.

But I've got a couple of personal questions. I'm going to get those out of the way after this next phone call. Let's go to Charlie in Bristol, Tennessee, Charlie you're up next gas, a fascinating show has anyone ever considered. Maybe they've done this sending maybe anaerobic bacteria on of probes or maybe even cockroaches cop. Duri indestructible. Still need oxygen though. Right. I would think Robert is what about doing the opposite sending life to Mars like bacteria or bugs? Well, of course in the long run. We're innocent people and people will bring back area with him NASA right now has a program in which they try to make sure that nothing. No bacteria get to Mars because they're afraid that if bacteria get to Mars, we won't know, if we find bacteria on Mars, weather, we brought them or whether they were already there. Now.

And once again, if there's native life on Mars, there's fossils because if it's native it was there in the past. And we'll have left remains when how often? Are you too? When I look at some of the curiosity images, the three sixty and I look around at the surface of Mars, it just looks like a debris field to me. It doesn't look natural most of it looks natural. But there are things there that just seem a little out of place. How open are when you look at those photographs. Do you just dismiss everything is just natural rocks? It's just old. That's that's all it is..

"mike helium" Discussed on KNST AM 790

"That's an o w two three five five one seven. Welcome back to coast to coast AM. All right. It was do sky got it right there on Twitter. That was Zach wild with his cover version of come together. Pretty cool. All right. Robert, let's get back to the phone calls. We've got a lot to get in here. And I want to go. Let's see let's go out west Mike in Reno Nevada. You're up next on coast to coast. Welcome. Couple of quick questions. Would it be necessary or advantageous to I build a moon base? Is there a helium suite on the moon? And Secondly this puzzles me greatly. I think I'm correct on this the Russians have never left earth orbit with a man craft. I don't know if it's the van Allen belts. I don't know why and getting controversial. If I may, you know, we have a lot of political divisions in this country idol think we could do anything. And and I find it interesting. I two nations in space when non Christian and in a sense on capitalist, Nazi Germany and communist Russia. So I'm looking at China, and I'm looking at India. I know that Cisco statement, but at least the first two questions, Robert thank you for that. Mike helium three on the moon, the moon base. All right. A couple of things number one quickly. Yes, you're correct Russian. With manned spacecraft have never gone by the low-earth-orbit they sent around fourteenth robes, tomorrow's and all of them failed. They sent several successful probes to Venus and to the moon. They actually did land a lunar Rover called Luna hot. But but that that's what they've done. Now. May of course, they've had many successful flights to lower orbit. They certainly have done that. But. Okay. The big question. Do we need to go to the moon before we go to Mars? No the and for quite a while. I've argued that we should make Mars our goal because I- Mars is where the scientists Mars is where the challenges and Marsh where the future is. Now. The Trump administration has nevertheless decided on making the moon. The proximate goal. Nasa is frankly, not willing to embrace the challenge of humans to Mars parts of NASA are willing to embrace the challenge of a return to the moon. However, in fact, the dominant faction and Nassar right now, isn't even willing to do that. And they're pushing for a lunar orbiting space station, which they say it's a necessary step on the way to the moon, which is frankly ridiculous. And I was at a conference in Orlando. A couple of months ago where NASA official actually got up and said, why are we building the station. We're not ready to land on the moon. We don't know how to land on. I think what are you talking about? We landed on the moon fifty years ago. And so NASA has got a kid. It's it it. It's confidence back and perhaps in that sense returning to the moon. If they actually did it might be useful step in terms of returning NASA to a can-do agency instead of a can't do agency. But this lunar orbiting station is a disaster. If you want to know what it is it significance is imagine. I offered you the following deal. I wanna rent you an office in Saskatoon, Canada, the rents a hundred thousand dollars a month. It's a thirty year lease there's no exit clause. You have to pay to build the building you have to spend one month per year for the rest of your life, in fact, catoon, and if you want to fly anywhere from where you live you must travel through Saskatoon from now on okay? Is this a deal that you would like I you being seen to accept such deal? That's the deal Nastas currently offering America by building a lunar orbiting space station, which is in a weird orbit, by the way. It's an a two week orbit around the moon. And it means that only once every two weeks you could travel to it only once every two weeks you could travel from it to the moon or from the moon to it. So if you're actually on the surface of the moon, and you wanna come home the bus only comes by once every two weeks, which actually imposes risk on the lunar base. It's it's not something you want it all so this is a a really bad idea. And you know, it's one of these things where if NASA insists they must go to the moon before we go to Mars, then my answer to them as well. I don't agree with that. But if you must go to the moon before you go to Mars, then get on with it. Let's go to come up with something else. You have to do before you go. Yeah. That's right. That's right. First time caller. Let's go to John in Chesapeake Virginia. John. Welcome. John. Okay. We don't have John. So let's go to international. Let's go to Joe in British Columbia. You're up next on coast. Oh, hi, Jimmy. How you doing? I'm doing good. Joe? Okay. How is it must've Villepin? I'm due to. Thank you. I have one question for MRs up in. Well, some scientists believe that days a poisonous gas. The atmosphere of the Mars bitches xenon gas is it to is it the dot Musab Mars is it. Both people the atmosphere is not breathe the ball because it's mostly carbon dioxide carbon dioxide is not poisonous. We have it here on earth. Of course. It's it's food for plants. But it's not what we breathe we. But it's not poisonous like poison gas or cyanide or something it's, but you do need to have a space suit on Mars where you have an oxygen supply or a habitat on Mars, which has got an oxygen containing atmosphere in how much oxygen is in the atmosphere on the surface of Mars meat free oxygen. Yeah. Very little like tenths of a percent. A tenth of a percent. So we you take your it's insignificant. But you know, there was no free oxygen on earth to speak of until they were plants here. Right, right. Three oxygen is an artifact of plants because oxygen very reactive. It doesn't want to stay free at wants to bind to to other things like metals carbon other stuff. And so it's plants that have to keep as it were unpacking it and putting it into the atmosphere with our space telescopes. If we ever spine a spectrum of atmosphere of a planet orbiting another star. And we see it has free oxygen that will tell us this life there. Let's go to wildcard Dave out in New Jersey. Dave, welcome. You're up next. Hey, jamie. It's really not Dave from New Jersey. It's not who is it. It's I'm the Martian Jimmy, okay day. Be two three seven nine is my name. Okay. Fair enough day fair enough. Okay. Now, we have been demars I've been there regularly. And I it was McDonald's hair. And next to McDonald's was a Bronco really on Mars. No, not really, okay. I was gonna say what's the cost of a Big Mac on Mars versus here. That's my question. What do you have for Robert Jubran tonight? Oh, well, I'm sorted. I'm sure we went to the move by. They had the space by the space buggy download service with mood. The oh, you're talking about was the it was like a very lightweight. Hot. Rod. It was it was a two person Bucky, and it was built so light that you you could pick it up and and carry it around even on earth. I mean, it was like the weight of a bicycle and what about Dave? Thank you for the phone call, by the way, that's a great question. And this is the other at the Robert I've been very confused. Why don't we send something like that to Mars? I mean, the Mars Rover right now that it's, you know, slow it's tiny. It's small. Why don't we build a hot ride like the lunar Rover, and let's let's cover some ground. Well, the thing is this the lunar Rover to be fast. Because it had you mean drivers in it. The the Rover curiosity Rover that we have on Mars is actually the size of a Volkswagen. It it's it's it's bigger and much heavier than the lunar Rover was, but it's an automated Rover, and you know, there's a time lag could radio signals from earth to Mars now the curiosity Rover does have some smarts. If. It will avoid walking right into Iraq or something. But the, but nevertheless, it has to be told what to do. And then it travels a hundred yards and then it stops and waits for the next command. Let's I've got a couple of personal questions. I'm going to get those out of the way after this next phone call. Let's go to Charlie in Bristol, Tennessee, Charlie you're up next. Hey, guys, fascinating show has anyone ever considered? Maybe they've done this sending maybe anaerobic bacteria on of probes or maybe even cockroaches, no copra three indestructible. Still need oxygen though. Right. I would think Robert what about doing the opposite sending life. Tomorrow's like bacteria or or bugs? Well, of course in the long run. We're innocent people and people will bring bacteria with them NASA right now has a program in which they try to make sure that nothing. No 'Bacterial get tomorrow because they're afraid that if bacteria get to Mars, we won't know, if we find bacteria on Mars, weather, we brought them or whether they were already there. Now. In fact, let me tell you if there's native life on Mars, they'll also be fossils of that life on Mars. That's right native. It was there in the past. And so this is really a false fear. And there's a lot of people nasty going around right now saying we should never send people to Mars. But I think you're sending people you Wilson bacteria, and then they say, we'll never know if there's life on Mars. We go to Mars with people. We find life on Mars. If it's native will also find fossils and other biomarkers, and will know that it was there before we got there. It's the same way, you know, that the French actually exist that they didn't all just show up when you did. Because you go to France, you see that there's buildings that were built before you were there. Okay. And you know, I it it's that's just how it is. And and this idea that we won't know if we brought it because the fossils could have been created along with the planet. That's like the people that don't believe in evolution and say, God created the fossils when he created the planet. And so there really weren't dinosaurs. It's just you know. God playing a trick on us or something is ridiculous idea. But. Let me jump in before we run out of time. Speaking of fossils. There was an image that surfaced about three years ago that for the life of me, I couldn't figure out and it looked like and there was two in the picture of floating spoon. And that there's no other way to describe it. It was a spoon that was floating with the shadow and NASA said that that was just natural wind formations over millions and millions of years. Well, as far as I know I've never seen a floating spoon here on earth. But anyway, did you see that image? What do you think that is could that have been something leftover? I I'm actually not familiar with that image. But once again, I think images of that type the there's any number of things photographs of rock, you know, in in in Santa Fe where I live for a little while there's a a rock it looks like a camel, and it wasn't a sculpture. It's just purely natural. But it sure as hell looks like a camel we have Castle Rock here in Colorado, the John F Kennedy mountain, the these things are not proof. But believe me when we send people to Mars or we're gonna go fossil hunting, and we will probably find fossils. And once again, if there's native life on Mars, there's fossils that it. Because if it's native it was there in the past, and it we'll have left remains when how open are you to when I look at some of the curiosity images that three sixty and I look around at the surface of Mars it. It just looks like a debris field to me. It doesn't look natural most of it looks natural. But there are things there that just seem a little out of place. How open are when you look at those photographs. Do you just dismiss everything is just natural? Just rocks is just old. That's that's all it is..

Let's I've got a couple of personal questions. I'm gonna get those out of the way after this next phone call. Let's go to Charlie in Bristol, Tennessee, Charlie you're up next. Hey, guys, fascinating show has anyone ever considered? Maybe they've done this sending maybe anaerobic bacteria on love of probes or maybe even cockroaches copra two-three indestructible. Still need oxygen though. Right. I would think Robert is what about doing the opposite sending life to Mars like bacteria or or bugs? Well, of course in the long run. We're innocent people and people will bring bacteria wisdom NASA right now has a program in which they try to make sure that nothing. No bacteria get to Mars because they're afraid that if bacteria get to Mars, we won't know, if we find bacteria on Mars, weather, we brought them or whether they were already there. Now. In fact, let me tell you if there's native life on Mars, they'll also be fossils of that life on Mars. That's right. It was there in the past. And so this is really a false fear. And there's a lot of people nasty going around right now saying we should never send people to Mars because I think you're sending people you Wilson bacteria. And then they say, we'll never know if there's life on Mars, we go. To Mars with people. We find life on Mars. If it's native will also find fossils and other biomarkers, and will know that it was there before we got there. It's the same way, you know, that the French actually exist that they didn't all just show up when you did. Because you go to France, you see that there's buildings that were built before you were there. Okay. And you know, I it it's that's just how it is. And and this idea that we won't know if we brought it because the fossils could have been created along with the planet. That's like people that don't believe in evolution and say, God created the fossils when he created the planet. And so there really weren't dinosaurs. It's just you know, God playing tricks on us or something is too ridiculous idea. But way, let me jump in before we run out of time. Speaking of fossils, there was an image. That surfaced about three years ago that for the life of me, I couldn't figure out and it looked like and there was two in the picture of floating spoon. And that there's no other way to describe it. It was a spoon that was floating with a shadow and NASA said that that was just natural wind formations over millions and millions of years. Well, as far as I know I've never seen a floating spoon here on earth. But anyway, did you see that image? What do you think that is could that have been something leftover? I I'm actually not familiar with that image. But once again, I think images so that type there's any number of of of of things photographs of rock, you know, in in in Santa Fe where I live for a little while there's a Iraq. It looks like a camel, and it wasn't a sculpture. It's just purely natural. But it sure looks like a camel we have Castlerock. Here in Colorado, the John F Kennedy mountain the these things are not proof. But believe me, we send people to Mars or we're gonna go fossil hunting, and we will probably find fossils. And once again, if there's native life on Mars, there's fossils of it. Because if it's native it was there in the past, and it will have left remains when how open are you to when I look at some of the curiosity images, the three sixty and I look around at the surface of Mars, it just looks like a debris field to me. It doesn't look natural most of it looks natural. But there are things there that just seem a little out of place. How open are when you look at those photographs. Do you just dismiss everything is just natural? Just rocks. Just old. That's that's all it is. Or is there a possibility that there is something there? There are certain. I mean. There's debris on Mars Mars gets hit by meteors, and we've actually found some on the surface of Mars, and you know, there's been sludge on the surface of Mars this and all sorts of geological activities on the surface of Mars, but to make like debris of artifacts. No. I I don't see that. I do. It's really weird..

"mike helium" Discussed on KFI AM 640

"Drug eight three three three seven seven thirty seven eighty four. KFI AM six forty. Welcome back to coast to coast AM. All right. It was due sky. Got it right there on Twitter. That was Zach wild with his cover version of come together. Pretty cool. All right. Robert, let's get back to the phone calls. And we've got a lot to get in here. And I wanna go let's see let's go out west Mike in Reno Nevada. You're up next on coast to coast. Welcome. Hey, a couple of quick questions. Would it be necessary or advantageous to I build a moon base? Is there healing suite on the moon? And Secondly this puzzles me greatly. I think I'm correct on this the Russians have never left earth orbit with a man craft. I don't know if it's the van Allen belts. I don't know why and getting controversial. If I may, you know, we have a lot of political divisions in this country. I don't think we could do anything. And and I find it interesting. I two nations in space when non Christian and in a sense on capitalist, Nazi Germany and communist Russia. So I'm looking at China, and I'm looking at India. I know that Cisco statement, but at least the first two questions, Robert. Yeah. Thank you for that. Mike helium three on the moon, the moon base. All right. Couple of things. Number one quickly. Yes, you're correct. Russian with manned spacecraft have never gone beyond lower orbit. They sent around fourteen. Tropes. Tomorrow's and all of them failed. They sent several successful probes to Venus and to the moon. They actually did land a lunar Rover called Luna hot. But but that's what they've done. Now. Of course, they've had many successful flights to lower. They certainly have done that. But okay, the big question. Do we need to go to the moon before we go to Mars? No the and for quite a while. I've argued that we should make Mars our goal because I- Mars is where the scientists Mars is where the challenges and Mars where the future is. Now. The Trump administration has nevertheless decided on making the moon. The proximate goal. Nasa is frankly, not willing to embrace the challenge of humans to Mars parts of now. So are willing to embrace the challenge of a return to the moon. However, in fact, the dominant faction in ASA right now, isn't even willing to do that. And they're pushing for a lunar orbiting space station, which they say is a necessary step on the way to the moon, which is frankly ridiculous. And I was at a conference in Orlando a couple of months ago where NASA official actually got up and said why we building the station. We're not ready to land on the moon. We don't know how to land on. I think what are you talking about? We landed on the moon fifty years ago. And so NASA has got a kid. It's it it. It's a confidence back and perhaps in that sense returning to the moon. If they actually did it might be useful step in terms of returning NASA to a can-do agency instead of a can't do agency. But this lunar orbiting station is disaster. If you if you want to know what is. Is giving says imagine I offered you the following deal. I wanna rent you an office in Saskatoon, Canada, the rents a hundred thousand dollars a month. It's a thirty year lease there's no exit clause. You have to pay to build the building you have to spend one month per year for the rest of your life, in fact, catoon, and if you want to fly anywhere from where you live you must travel through Saskatoon from now on okay? Is this a deal that you would like I you be insane to accept such a deal? That's the deal that masses currently offering America by building a lunar orbiting space station, which is in a weird orbit, by the way. It's an a two week orbit around the moon. And it means that only once every two weeks you could travel to it only once every two weeks you could travel from it to the moon or from the moon to it. So if you're actually on the surface of the moon, and you wanna come home the bus only comes by once every two weeks, which actually imposes risk on the lunar base. It's it's not something you want it all so this is a a really bad idea. And you know, it's one of these things where if NASA insist they must go to the moon before we go to Mars, then my answer to them as well. I don't agree with that. But if you must go to the moon before you go to March, then get on with it. Let's go to I come up with something else. You have to do before you go to the moon. That's right. That's right. Got a first time caller. Let's go to John in Chesapeake Virginia. John. Welcome. John. Okay. We don't have John. So let's go to international. Let's go to Joe in British Columbia. You're up next on coast. Oh, hi, Jimmy. How you doing? I'm doing good. Joe? Okay. How Mr. Villepin? Thank you. I have one question for MRs in the some scientists believe that days poisonous gas. I'm. Atmosphere of the Mars, which is the non gas. Is it true? Is it dot Nestle Mars is if both people the atmosphere is not breathable because it's mostly carbon dioxide carbon dioxide is not poisonous. We have it here on earth. Of course. It's it's fluid for plants, but it's not what we breathe we. But it's not poisonous like poison gas or cyanide or something it's, but you do need to have a space suit on Mars where you have an oxygen supply or habitat on Mars, which has got an oxygen containing atmosphere in it. How much oxygen is in the atmosphere on the surface of Mars meat free oxygen? Yeah. Very little like a tenth of a percent. A tenth of a percent. So you take your it's insignificant. Right. But you know, there was no free oxygen on earth to speak of until the worth plant. Right. Right. Oxygen is an artifact of plants because oxygen very reactive. It doesn't want to stay free at wants to bind to to other things like metals carbon other stuff. And so it's plants that have to keep as it were unpacking it and putting it into the answer with our space telescopes if we ever spine a spectrum of a atmosphere of a planet orbiting another star. And we see it has oxygen that will tell us his life there. Let's go to wildcard Dave out in New Jersey. Dave, welcome. You're up next. Hey, jamie. It's really not Dave from New Jersey. It's not who is it. It's ama- Martian, Jimmy. Okay. Dave. Be two three seven nine is my name. Okay. Fair enough day fair enough. Now, we have been to Mars I've been there regularly. And I it was McDonald's hair. And actually McDonald's was a brothel really on Mars. No, not really, okay. I was gonna say what's the cost of a Big Mac on Mars versus here. That's my question. What do you have for Robert Zuber tonight? Oh, well, I'm sorted. I'd sure we went to the move by. They had this space by the space. Buggy download services mood, the oh, you're talking about the it was like a very lightweight. Hot. Rod. It was it was a two person Bucky and it was built. So light that you you could pick it up and carry it around even on earth. I mean, it was like the weight of a bicycle and what about Dave? Thank you for the phone call, by the way, that's a great question. And this is the other Robert I've been very confused. Why don't we send something like that to Mars? I mean, the Mars Rover right now that is you know, it's slow it's tiny. It's small. Why don't we build a hot rod like the the lunar Rover, and let's let's cover some ground. Well, the thing is this the lunar Rover could be fast because it had been drivers in it. The the Rover curiosity Rover that we have on Mars is actually the size of Volkswagen it, it's it's it's bigger and much heavier than the lunar Rover was, but it's an automated Rover, and you know, there's a time lag could radio signals from earth to Mars now is the curiosity Rover does have some smarts. If it will avoid walking right into a rock or something. But the, but nevertheless, it has to be told what to do. And then it travels a hundred yards and then it stops and waits for the next command. Let's I've got a couple of personal questions. I'm going to get those out of the way after this next phone calls. Go to Charlie in Bristol, Tennessee, Charlie you're up next. Take a fascinating show has anyone ever considered. Maybe they've done this sending maybe anaerobic bacteria on those probes or maybe even cockroaches cockroaches during destructible still need oxygen though. Right. I would think Ron or what about doing the opposite sending life? Tomorrow's like bacteria or bugs. Well, of course in the long run. We're going send people and people will bring back area with them. Nasa right now has a program in which they try to make sure that nothing. No bacteria get to Mars because they're afraid that if bacteria get to Mars, we won't know, if we find bacteria on Mars, weather, we brought them or whether they were already there. Now. In fact, let me tell you if there's native life on Mars, they'll also be fossils of that life on Mars. That's right native. It was there in the past. And so. This is really a false fear.

And then they say, we'll never know if there's life on Mars, we go to Mars with people we find life on Mars, if it's native will also find fossils and other biomarkers and will know that it was there before we got there. It's the same way, you know, that the French actually exist that they didn't all just show up when you did. Because you go to France, you see that there's buildings that were built before you were there. Okay. And you know, I it it's that's just how it is.

And it means that only once every two weeks you could travel to it only once every two weeks you could travel from it to the moon or from the moon to it. So if you're actually on the surface of the moon, and you wanna come home the bus only comes by once every two weeks, which actually imposes risk on the lunar base. It's it's not something you want it all so this is a a really bad idea. And you know, it's one of these things where if NASA insists they must go to the moon before we go to Mars, then my answer to them as well. I don't agree with that. But if you must go to the moon before you go to Mars, then get on with it. Let's go to I come up with something else. You have to do before you go. Yeah. That's right. That's right. Let's go to first time caller. Let's go to John in Chesapeake Virginia. John. Welcome. John. Okay. We don't have John. So let's go to international go to Joe in British Columbia. You're up next on coast. Oh, hi, Jimmy. How you doing? I'm doing good. Joe? Okay. How is Mr. Villepin? I'm due to. Oh, thank you. I have one question for MRs up in Alaska. Some scientists believe that days poisonous gas Sunday after severe asthma. Stay of the Mars is an on gas to is it the dots. Musab Mars is if both people the atmosphere is not breathe the ball because it's mostly carbon dioxide carbon dioxide is not poisonous. We have it here on earth. Of course. It's it's food for plants. But it's not what we breathe we. But it's not poisonous like poison gas or cyanide or something. It's but you do need to have a space suit on Mars. We have an oxygen supply or a habitat on Mars, which has got an oxygen containing atmosphere in it. How much oxygen is in the atmosphere on the surface of Mars meat free oxygen? Yeah. Very little like a tenth of a percent. A tenth of a percent. So we you take your it's insignificant. Right. But you know, there was no free oxygen on earth to speak of until they were plants here. Right. Right. Free oxygen is an artifact of plants because oxygen trae reactive. It doesn't want to stay free at wants to bind to to other things like metals carbon other stuff. And so it's plants that have to keep as it were unpacking it and putting it into the atmosphere with our space telescopes. If we ever spine a spectrum of the atmosphere of a planet orbiting another star. And we see it has free oxygen that will tell us this life there. Let's go to a wildcard Dave out in New Jersey. Dave, welcome. You're up next. Hey, jamie. It's really not Dave from New Jersey. It's not who is it. It's on the Martian, Jimmy. Okay. Dave. Two three seven nine is my name. Okay. Fair enough day fair. Okay. Now, we have been demars. I've been there regularly. And I it was McDonald's hair. And they said McDonald's was LeBron's Brownsville really on Mars. No, not really, okay. I was gonna say what's the cost of a Big Mac on Mars versus here. That's my question. What do you have for Robert Jubran tonight? Oh, well, I'm sorted. I sure we went to the move by. They have this space buggy how they give this space buggy down the servicing mood, the oh you're talking about. It was the it was like a very lightweight. Hot. Rod. It was it was a two person Bucky and it was built. So light that you you could pick it up and carry it around even on earth. I mean, it was like the weight of a bicycle and what about Dave? Thank you for the phone call, by the way, it's a great question. And this is the other Robert I've been very confused. Why don't we send something like that to Mars? I mean, the Mars Rover right now that is you know, it's slow it's tiny. It's small. Why don't we build a hot ride like the lunar Rover, and let's let's cover some ground. Well, the thing is this the lunar Rover could be fast. Because it had you mean drivers in it. The the Rover curiosity Rover that we have on Mars is actually the size of a Volkswagen. It it's it's it's bigger and much heavier than the lunar Rover was, but it's an automated Rover, and you know, there's a time lag radio signals from earth to Mars now is the curiosity Rover does have some smarts. If it will avoid walking right into Iraq or something. But the, but nevertheless, it has to be told what to do. And then it travels a hundred yards and then it stops and waits for the next command. Let's I've got a couple of personal questions. I'm going to get those out of the way after this next phone call. Let's go to Charlie in Bristol, Tennessee, Charlie you're up next. Hey, fascinating show has anyone ever considered? Maybe they've done this sending leave. Anaerobic bacteria probes are maybe even cockroaches copra accuser. Indestructible? Still need oxygen though. Right. I would think Robert is what about doing the opposite sending life to Mars like bacteria or bugs? Well, of course in the long run. We're in some people and people will bring bacteria with him NASA right now has a program in which they try to make sure that nothing. No 'Bacterial get to Mars because they're afraid that if bacteria get tomorrow's we won't know, if we find bacteria on Mars, weather, we brought them or whether they were already there. Now. In fact, let me tell you if there's native life on Mars, they'll also be fossils of that life on Mars. That's right. It was there in the past. And so this is really a false fear. It there's a lot of people NASA going around right now saying we should never send people to Mars because you're sending people you will send bacteria, and then they say, we'll never know if there's life on Mars. We go to Mars with people. We find life on Mars. If it's native will also find fossils and other biomarkers, and will know that it was there before we got there. It's the same way, you know, that the French actually exist. That they didn't all just show up when you did. Because you go to France, you see that there's buildings that were built before you were there. Okay. And you know, I it it's. That's just how it is. And and this idea that we won't know if we brought it because the fossils could have been created along with the planet. That's like the people that don't believe in evolution and say, God created the fossils when he created the planet. And so there really weren't dinosaurs. It's just, you know, God playing a trick on us or something is too ridiculous idea, but sway. Let me jump in before we run out of time. Speaking of fossils. There was an image that surfaced about three years ago that for the life of me, I couldn't figure out and it looked like and there was two in the picture of floating spoon. And that there's no other way to describe it. It was a spoon that was floating with the shadow and NASA said that that was just natural wind formations over milk. Millions of years. Well, as far as I know I've never seen a floating spoon here on earth. But anyway, did you see that image? What do you think that is could that have been something leftover? I'm actually not familiar with that image. But once again, I think images of that type the there's any number of of of of things photographs of of rock, you know, in in in Santa Fe where I live for a little while there's a a rock that looks like a camel and. It wasn't a sculpture. It's just purely natural. But it sure looks like a camel we have Castle Rock here in Colorado. The John F Kennedy mountain, the the these things are not proof. But. Believe me, we send people to Mars or we're going to go fossil hunting, and we will probably find fossils. And once again, if there's native life on Mars, there's fossils of it. Because if it's native it was there in the past, and it we'll have left remains when how open are you to when I look at as some of the curiosity images, the three sixty and I look around at the surface of Mars, it just looks like a debris field to me. It doesn't look natural most of it looks natural. But there are things there that just seem a little out of place. How open are when you look at those photographs. Do you just dismiss everything is just natural rocks is just old. That's that's all it is..

"mike helium" Discussed on WRVA

"Three three seven seven drug eight three three three seven seven thirty seven eighty four. Welcome back to coast to coast AM. All right. It was do sky got it right there on Twitter. That was Zach wild with his cover version of come together. Pretty cool. All right. Robert, let's get back to the phone calls. And we've got a lot to get in here. And I wanna go let's see let's go out west Mike in Reno Nevada. You're up next on coast to coast. Welcome. Thanks to me a couple of quick questions. Would it be necessary or advantageous to I build a moon base? Is there healing suite on the moon? And Secondly this puzzles me greatly. I think I'm correct on this the Russians have never left earth orbit with a man craft. I don't know if it's the van Allen belts. I don't know why and getting controversial. If I may, you know, we have a lot of political divisions in this country. I don't think we could do anything and. And I find it interesting. I two nations in space when non Christian and in a sense on capitalist, Nazi Germany and communist Russia. So I'm looking at China, and I'm looking at India. I know that scroll statement, but at least the first two questions, Robert thank you for that. Mike helium three on the moon, the moon base. All right. Well, a couple of things number one quickly. Yes, you're correct Russian with manned spacecraft have never gone beyond low-earth orbit. They sent around fourteenth robes, tomorrow's and all of them failed. They sent several successful probes to Venus and to the moon. They actually did land a lunar Rover called Luna hot. But but that that's what they've done. Now. May of course, they've had many successful flights. To lower warp it. They certainly have done that. But. Okay. The big question. Do we need to go to the moon before we go to Mars? No the and for quite a while. I've argued that we should make Mars our goal because Mars is where the scientists Mars is where the challenges and Marsh where the future is. Now. The Trump administration has nevertheless decided on making the moon. The proximate goal. Nasa is frankly, not willing to embrace the challenge of humans to Mars parts of NASA are willing to embrace the challenge of a return to the moon. However, in fact, the dominant faction in Nashua right now, isn't even willing to do that. And they're pushing for a lunar orbiting space station, which they say is a necessary step on the way to the moon, which is frankly ridiculous. And I was at a conference in Orlando. A couple of months ago where NASA official actually got up and said, why are we building the station. We're not ready to land on the moon. We don't know how to land on. I think what are you talking about? We landed on the moon fifty years ago. And. So NASA has got a kid. It's it it. It's a confidence back and perhaps in that sense returning to the moon. If they actually did it might be useful step in terms of returning NASA to a can-do agency instead of a can't do agency. But this lunar orbiting station is a disaster. If if you want to know what it is. It's giving is imagine I offered you the following deal. I wanna rent you an office in Saskatoon, Canada, the rents one hundred thousand dollars a month. It's a thirty year lease there's no exit clause. You have to pay to build the building you have to spend one month per year for the rest of your life in fast catoon, and if you want to fly anywhere from where you live you must travel through Saskatoon from now on okay? Is this a deal that you would like I you being seen to accept such deal? That's the deal but Nastas currently offering America by building a lunar orbiting space station, which is in a weird orbit, by the way. It's an a two week orbit around the moon. And it means that only once every two weeks you could travel to it only once every two weeks you could travel from it to the moon or from the moon to it. So if you're actually on the surface of the moon, and you wanna come home the bus only comes by once every two weeks, which actually imposes risk on the lunar base. It's it's not something you want it all so this is a really bad idea. And you know, it's one of these things where it's NASA insists they must go to the moon before we go to Mars, then my answer to them as well. I don't agree with that. But if you must go to the moon before we go to Mars, then get on with it. Let's go to I come up with something else. You have to do before you go. Yeah. That's right. That's right. The first time caller, let's go to John in Chesapeake Virginia. John. Welcome. John. Okay. We don't have John. So let's go to international. Let's go to Joe in British Columbia. You're up next on coast. Oh, hi, Jimmy. How you doing? I'm doing good. Joe? Okay. How is Mr. Villepin? I'm due to. Thank you. I have a question for MRs up in. Well, there's some scientists believe that days a poisonous gas. After say of the Mars bitches and on gas. Is it to is it the dot NASA Mars is it. Both people the atmosphere is not breathe the ball because it's mostly carbon dioxide carbon dioxide is not poisonous. We have it here on earth. Of course. It's it's food for plants. But it's not what we breathe we. But it it's not poisonous like poison gas or cyanide or something it's, but you do need to have a space suit on Mars. We have an oxygen supply or a habitat on Mars, which has got an oxygen containing atmosphere in it. How much oxygen is in the atmosphere on the surface of Mars meat free oxygen? Yeah. Very little like tenths of a percent. A tenth of a percent. So we take your. It's it's insignificant. Right. But you know, there was no free oxygen on earth to speak of until they were plants here. Right, right. Three oxygen is an artifact of plants because oxygen spray reactive doesn't want to stay free wants to bind to to other things like metals carbon other stuff. And so it's plants that have to keep as it were unpacking it and putting it into the atmosphere with our space telescopes. If we ever spine a spectrum of atmosphere of a planet orbiting another star. And we see it has oxygen that will tell us this life there. Let's go to wildcard Dave out in New Jersey. Dave, welcome. You're up next. Hey, jamie. It's really not Dave from New Jersey. It's not who is it. It's I'm the Martian, Jimmy. Okay. Dave. Be two three seven nine is my name. Okay. Fair enough day enough. Right now, we have been demars I've been there regularly. And I it was McDonald's hair. And actually McDonald's was a brothel really on Mars. No, not really I was gonna say what's the cost of a Big Mac on Mars versus here. That's my question. What do you have for Robert Jubran tonight? Well, I'm sorted. I'm sure we went to the by. Well, we were they had the space buggy how they get their space buggy servicing mood, though, you talking about the was like a very lightweight. Hot. Rod. It was it was a two person Bucky, and it was built so light that you could pick it up and carry it around even on earth. I mean, it was like the weight of a bicycle and what about Dave? Thank you for the phone call, by the way, that's a great question. And this is the other at the Robert I've been very confused. Why don't we send something like that tomorrow? I mean, the Mars Rover right now that is you know, it's slow it's tiny. It's small. Why don't we build a hot ride like the lunar Rover, and let's let's cover some ground. Well, the thing is this the lunar Rover to be fast. Because it had you mean drivers in it. The the Rover curiosity Rover that we have on Mars is actually the size of a Volkswagen. It it's it's it's bigger and much heavier than the lunar Rover was, but it's an automated Rover, and you know, there's a time lag could radio signals from earth to Mars now. Is the curiosity Rover does have some smarts. If. It will avoid walking right into Iraq or something. But the, but nevertheless, it has to be told what to do. And then it travels a hundred yards and then it stops and waits for the next command. Let's I've got a couple of personal questions. I'm going to get those out of the way after this next phone call. Let's go to Charlie in Bristol, Tennessee, Charlie you're up next. Hey, gas, fascinating show has anyone ever considered? Maybe they've done this sending maybe anaerobic bacteria on lovers probes. Or maybe even cockroaches copper accuser indestructible. Still need oxygen though. Right. I would think Robert what about doing the opposite sending life. Tomorrow's like bacteria or bugs. Well, of course in the long run. We're going to send people and people will bring back terrier with them NASA right now has a program in which they try to make sure that nothing. No 'Bacterial get to Mars because they're afraid that if bacteria get to Mars, we won't know, if we find bacteria on Mars, weather, we brought them or whether they were already there. Now. In fact, let me tell you if there's native life on Mars, they'll also be fossils of that life on Mars. That's right native. It was there in the past. And so this is really a false fear. It there's a lot of people NASA going around right now saying we should never send people to Mars because think you're sending people you Wilson bacteria. And then they say, we'll never know if there's life on Mars. We go to Mars with people. We find life on Mars. If it's native will also find fossils and other biomarkers, and will know that it was there before we got there. It's the same way, you know, that the French actually exist that they didn't all just show up when you did. Because you go to France, you see that there's buildings that were built before you were there. Okay. And you know, I it it's. That's just how it is. And and this idea that we won't know if we brought it because the fossils could have been created along with the planet.

That's that's all it is. Or is there a possibility that there is something there are certain? I mean, there's debris on Mars Mars gets hit by meteors, and we've actually found some on the surface of Mars, and you know, there's been floods on the surface of Mars this in all sorts of geological activities on the surface of Mars, but it might like debris of artifacts. No. I I I don't see that. I do. It's really weird. You know? And it's just I feel like when I look at some of these images and look off in the distance. There are just things that are there that don't seem natural. And I can't explain check it out. I know right. What's up next for you? Robert. What's up next to me? Well, I have a new book coming out next spring. What's it called? It's called the case for space the case for space, and that's gonna release when spring probably around me. It'll be released in time for the anniversary of the moon landing..

You're up next on coast. Hi, jamie. How you doing? I'm doing good. Joe? Okay. How is Mr. Villepin? I'm due to. Oh, thank you. I have one question for MRs upping allowed this some scientists believe that days at poisonous gas. I'm the atmosphere. Let's say of the Mars bitches and on gas is it to is it the dots. Masara Maas besa. Both people the atmosphere is not breathe -able because it's mostly carbon dioxide carbon dioxide is not poisonous. We have it here on earth. Of course. It's it's fluid for plants. But it's not what we breathe we. But it's not poisonous like poison gas or cyanide or something it's, but you do need to have a space suit on Mars where you have an oxygen supply or a habitat on Mars, which has got an oxygen containing atmosphere in it. How much oxygen is in the atmosphere on the surface of Mars meet three oxygen? Yeah. Very little like tenths of a percent. A tenth of a percent. So we take your it's insignificant. Right. But you know. There was no free oxygen on earth to speak of until they were plants here. Right. Right. Free oxygen is an artifact of plants because oxygen very reactive doesn't want to stay free at wants to bind to to other things like metals carbon other stuff. And so it's plants that have to keep as it were unpacking it and putting it into the atmosphere with our space telescopes. If we ever spine a spectrum of a atmosphere of a planet orbiting another star. And we see it has oxygen that will tell us this life there. Let's go to a wildcard Dave out in New Jersey. Dave, welcome. You're up next. Hey, jamie. It's really not Dave from New Jersey. It's not who is it. I'm the Martian, Jimmy. Okay. Dave. Two three seven nine is my name. Okay. Fair enough day fair. And okay now, we have been demars I've been there regularly. And I it was McDonald's hair. And next to McDonald's was a Bronco really on Mars. Okay. I was gonna say what's the cost of a Big Mac on Mars versus here. That's my question. What do you have for Robert Zuber in tonight? Oh, well, I'm sure we went to the mood by. They had this space buggy how they give this face buggy down serves mood. The you're talking about was the it was like a very lightweight. Hot. Rod. It was it was a two person Bucky, and it was built so light that you you could pick it up and and carry it around even on earth. I mean, it was like the weight of a bicycle. And what about Dave? Thank you for the phone call, by the way, that's a great question. And this is the other Robert I've been very confused. Why don't we send something like that to Mars? I mean, the Mars Rover right now that is you know, it's slow it's tiny. It's small. Why don't we build a hot ride like the lunar Rover? And let's let's cover some ground. Well, the thing is this the lunar Rover could be fast because it had you mean drivers in it. The the Rover curiosity Rover that we have on Mars is actually the size of a Volkswagen. It it's it's it's bigger and much heavier than the lunar Rover was, but it's an automated Rover, and you know, there's a time lag could radio signals from earth to Mars now. He's the curiosity Rover does have some smarts. If. It will avoid walking right into Iraq. Or something. But the, but nevertheless, it has to be told what to do. And then it travels a hundred yards and then it stops and waits for the next command. Let's I've got a couple of personal questions. I'm going to get those out of the way after this next phone call. Let's go to Charlie in Bristol, Tennessee, Charlie you're up next. Hey, guys, fascinating show has anyone ever considered? Maybe they've done this sending maybe anaerobic bacteria on logos probes. Or maybe even cockroaches cockroaches three indestructible. Still need oxygen though. Right. I would think Robert what about doing the opposite sending life Mars, like bacteria or or bugs? Well, of course in the long run. We're innocent people and people will bring back terrier with him NASA right now has a program in which they try to make sure that nothing no bacteria get tomorrow 'cause they're afraid that if bacteria get to Mars, we won't know, if we find bacteria on Mars, weather, we brought them or whether they were already there. Now. In fact, let me tell you if there's native life on Mars, they'll also be fossils of that life on Mars. That's right native. It was there in the past. And so this is really a false fear. And there's a lot of people NASA going around right now saying we should never send people to Mars. But I think you're sending people you Wilson bacteria. And then they say, we'll never know if there's life on Mars to. Go to Mars with people. We find life on Mars. If it's native will also find fossils and other biomarkers, and will know that it was there before we got there. It's the same way, you know, that the French actually exist that they didn't all just show up when you did. Because you go to France, you see that there's buildings that were built before you were there. Okay. And you know, I it it's. That's just how it is. And and this idea that we won't know if we brought it because the fossils could have been created along with the planet. That's like the people that don't believe in evolution and say, God created the fossils when he created the planet. And so there really weren't dinosaurs. It's just you know. God playing a trick on us or something is a ridiculous idea. But. Let me jump in before we run out of time. Speaking of fossils. There was an image that surfaced about three years ago that for the life of me, I couldn't figure out and it looked like there was two in the picture of floating spoon. And that there's no other way to describe it. It was a spoon that was floating with a shadow and NASA said that that was just natural wind formations over millions and millions of years. Well, as far as I know I've never seen a floating spoon here on earth. But anyway, did you see that image? What do you think that is could that have been something leftover? I'm actually not familiar with that image. But once again, I think images of that type there's any number of of things photographs of of rock, you know, in in in Santa Fe where I live for a little while there's a Iraq. It looks like a camel, and it wasn't a sculpture. It's just purely natural. But it sure looks like a camel we have Castle Rock here in Colorado, the John F Kennedy mountain, the these things are not proof. But. Believe me when we send people to Mars or we're going to go fossil hunting, and we will probably find fossils. And once again, if there's native life on Mars, there's fossils of it. Because if it's native it was there in the past, and we'll have left remains when how open are you to when I look at some of the curiosity images, the three sixty and I look around at the surface of Mars, it just looks like a debris field to me. It doesn't look natural most of it looks natural. But there are things there that just seem a little out of place. How open are when you look at those photographs. Do you just dismiss everything is just natural? Just rocks is just old. That's that's all it is..

"Eight three three three seven seven thirty seven eighty four. Wake up informed to say, Alexa, set my alarm to play nine seventy tell ya every day at six AM. Welcome back to coast to coast AM. All right. It was do sky got it right there on Twitter. That was Zach wild with his cover version of come together. Pretty cool. All right. Robert, let's get back to the phone calls. We've got a lot to get in here. And I wanna go. Let's see let's go out west Mike in Reno Nevada. You're up next on coast to coast. Welcome. Thanks to me a couple of quick questions. Would it be necessary or advantageous to I build a moon base? Is there helium suite on the moon? And Secondly this puzzles me greatly. I think I'm correct on this the Russians have never left earth orbit with a man craft. I don't know if it's the van Allen belts. I don't know why and getting controversial. If I may, you know, we have a lot of political divisions in this country idol think we could do anything. And and I find it interesting. I two nations in space when non Christian and in a sense on capitalist, Nazi Germany and communist Russia. So I'm looking at China, and I'm looking at India. I know that scrawl statement. But at least the first two questions, Robert. Yeah. Thank you for that. Mike helium three on the moon, the moon base. All right. Well, a couple of things number one quickly. Yes, you're correct. Russian with manned spacecraft have never gone by the on low-earth orbit. They sent around fourteen tropes. Tomorrow's and all of them failed. They sent several successful probes to Venus and to the moon. They actually did land a lunar Rover called the Luna hot. But but that that's what they've done. Now. May of course, they've had many successful flights to lower warp. It certainly. Done that. But. Okay. The big question. Do we need to go to the moon before we go to Mars? No the and for quite a while. I've argued that we should make Mars our goal because Mars is where the scientists Mars is where the challenges and Mars where the future is. Now. The Trump administration has nevertheless decided on making the moon. The proximate goal. Nasa is frankly, not willing to embrace the challenge of human tomorrow. Parts of NASA are willing to embrace the challenge of a return to the moon. However, in fact, the dominant faction in Nassar right now, isn't even willing to do that. And they're pushing for a lunar orbiting space station, which they say is a necessary step on the way to the moon, which is frankly ridiculous. And I was at a conference in Orlando a couple of months ago. A NASA official actually got up and said why we building the station. We're not ready to land on the moon. We don't know how to land on. What are you talking about? We landed on the moon fifty years ago. And. So NASA gotta kid. It's it it. It's a confidence back and perhaps in that sense returning to the moon. If they actually did it might be useful step in terms of returning NASA to a can-do agency instead of a can't do agency. But this lunar orbiting station is a disaster. If you if you want to know what it is it significance is imagine. I offered you the following deal. I wanna rent you an office in Saskatoon, Canada, the rents a hundred thousand dollars a month. It's a thirty year lease there's no exit clause. You have to pay to build the building you have to spend one month per year for the rest of your life fast catoon, and if you want to fly anywhere from where you live you must travel through Saskatoon from now on okay? Is this a deal that you would like I you be insane to accept such deal? That's the deal that NASA is currently offering America by building a lunar orbiting space station, which is in a weird orbit, by the way. It's an a two week orbit around the moon. And it means that only once every two weeks you could travel to it only once every two weeks you could travel from it to the moon or from the moon to it. So if you're actually on the surface of the moon, and you wanna come home the bus only comes by once every two weeks, which actually imposes risk on the lunar base. It's it's not something you want it all so this is a a really bad idea. And you know, it's one of these things where if NASA insists they must go to the moon before we go to Mars, then my answer to them as well. I don't agree with that. But if you must go to the moon before you go to March, then get on with it. Let's go to I come up with something else. You have to do before you go. Yeah. That's right. That's right now, let's go to first time caller. Let's go to John in Chesapeake Virginia. John. Welcome. John. Okay. We don't have John. So let's go to international. Let's go to Joe in British Columbia. You're up next on coast. Oh, hi, Jimmy. How you doing? I'm doing good. Joe? Okay. How is must've Villepin? I'm due to. Oh, thank you. I have one question for MRs upping. Some scientists believe that they have poisonous gas. I'm the atmosphere of Mars bitches then on gas. Is it to is the darkness Mars is it? Both people the atmosphere is not breathe the ball because it's mostly carbon dioxide carbon dioxide is not poisonous. We have it here on earth. Of course. It's it's food for plants. But it's not what we breathe we. But it's not poisonous like poison gas or cyanide or something it's, but you do need to have a space suit on Mars where you have an oxygen supply or a habitat on Mars, which has got an oxygen containing atmosphere in it. How much oxygen is in the atmosphere on the surface of Mars meat free oxygen? Yeah. Very little. Like a tenth of a percent a tenth of a percent. So we you take your it's it's insignificant. Right. But you know, there was no free oxygen on earth to speak of until they were plants here. Right. Right. Free oxygen is an artifact of plants because oxygen very reactive. It doesn't want to stay free at wants to bind to to other things like metals carbon other stuff. And so it's plants that have to keep as it were unpacking it and putting it into the atmosphere with our space telescopes if we ever spine a spectrum of a atmosphere of a planet orbiting another star. And we see it has free oxygen, and that will tell us this life there. Let's go to wildcard Dave out in New Jersey. Dave, welcome. You're up next. Hey, jamie. It's really not Dave from New Jersey. It's not who is it. It's I'm the Martian, Jimmy. Okay. Dave. Be two three seven nine by name. Okay. Fair enough day fair enough. Okay. Now, we have been to Mars. I've been there regularly. And I it was McDonald's hair. And actually McDonald's was a Bronco really on Mars. No, not really, okay. I was gonna say what's the cost of a Big Mac on Mars versus here. That's my question. What do you have for Robert do Brin tonight? Oh, well, I'm not sure we went to move by. They had the space by the how they get their space buggy down serves mood. The oh you're talking about. It was the it was like a very lightweight. Hot. Rod. It was it was a two person Bucky, and it was built so light that you you could pick it up, and and and carry it around even on earth. I mean, it was like the weight of a bicycle and what about Dave? Thank you for the phone call, by the way, that's a great question. And this is the other Robert I've been very confused. Why don't we send something like that tomorrow? I mean, the Mars Rover right now that is you know, it's slow it's tiny. It's small. Why don't we build a hot ride like the lunar Rover? And let's let's cover some ground. Well, the thing is this the lunar Rover could be fast because it had mean drivers in it. The the Rover curiosity Rover that we have on Mars is actually the size of a Volkswagen. It it's it's it's bigger much heavier than the lunar Rover was, but it's an automated Rover, and you know, there's a time lag could radio signals from earth to Mars now. He's the curiosity Rover does have some smarts. If it will avoid walking right into Iraq or something. But the, but nevertheless, it has to be told what to do. And then it travels a hundred yards and then it stops and waits for the next command. Let's I've got a couple of personal questions. I'm going to get those out of the way after this next phone call. Let's go to Charlie in Bristol, Tennessee, Charlie you're up next. Hey, guys, fascinating show has anyone ever considered? Maybe they've done this sending maybe anaerobic bacteria on levels probes. Or maybe even cockroaches cockroaches three indestructible. Still need oxygen though. Right. I would think Robert is what about doing the opposite sending life to Mars like bacteria or or bugs? Well, of course in the long run. We're going to send people and people will bring bacteria with them NASA right now has a program in which they try to make sure that nothing. No bacteria get to Mars because they're afraid that if bacteria get to Mars, we won't know, if we find bacteria on Mars, weather, we brought them or whether they were already there. Now. In fact, let me tell you if there's native life on Mars, they'll also be fossils of that life on Mars. That's right. It was there in the past. And so this is really a false fear. And there's a lot of people NASA going around right now saying we should never send people to Mars because you're sending people you Wilson bacteria. And then say, we'll never know if there's life on Mars go to. Mars with people. We find life on Mars. If it's native will also find fossils and other biomarkers, and will know that it was there before we got there. It's the same way, you know, that the French actually exist that they didn't all just show up when you did. Because you go to France, you see that there's buildings that were built before you were there. Okay. And you know, I it it's that's just how it is. And and this idea that we won't know if we brought it because the fossils could have been created along with the planet. That's like the people that don't believe in and say, God created the fossils when he created the planet. And so there really weren't dinosaurs. It's just you know, God playing a trick on us. Something is ridiculous idea. But. Let me jump in before we run out of time. Speaking of fossils. There was an image that surfaced about three years ago that for the life of me, I couldn't figure out and it looked like and there was two in the picture of floating spoon. And that there's no other way to describe it. It was a spoon that was floating with the shadow and NASA said that that was just natural wind formations over millions and millions of years. Well, as far as I know I've never seen a floating spoon here on earth..

Is the curiosity Rover does have some smarts. If. It will avoid walking right into Iraq or something. But the, but nevertheless, it has to be told what to do. And then it travels one hundred yards and then it stops and waits for the next command. Let's I've got a couple of personal questions. I'm going to get those out of the way after this next phone call. Let's go to Charlie in Bristol, Tennessee, Charlie you're up next. Hey, guys, fascinating show has anyone ever considered? Maybe they've done this sending maybe anaerobic bacteria on lovers probes. Or maybe even cockroaches cockroaches three indestructible. Still need oxygen though. Right. I would think Robert what about doing the opposite sending life. Tomorrow's like bacteria or bugs. Well, of course in the long run. We're gonna send people and people will bring back terrier with them NASA right now has a program in which they try to make sure that nothing. No 'Bacterial get tomorrow because they're afraid that if bacteria get to Mars, we won't know, if we find bacteria on Mars, weather, we brought them or whether they were already there. Now. In fact, let me tell you if there's native life on Mars, they'll also be fossils of that life on Mars. That's right native. It was there in the past. And so this is really a false fear. And there's a lot of people nasty going around right now saying we should never send people to Mars. But I think you're sending people you will send bacteria, and then they say, we'll never know if there's life on Mars, we go to Mars with people we find life on Mars. If it's native will also. So find fossils and other biomarkers. And will know that it was there before we got there. It's the same way, you know, that the French actually exist that they didn't all just show up when you did. Because you go to France, you see that there's buildings that were built before you were there. Okay. And you know, I it it's that's just how it is. And and this idea that we won't know if we brought it because the fossils could have been created along with the planet. That's like the people that don't believe in evolution and say, God created the fossils when he created the planet. And so there really weren't dinosaurs. It's just you know, God playing a trick on us. Something is a ridiculous idea. But way, let me jump in before we run out of time. Speaking of fossils. There was an image that surfaced about three years ago that for the life of me. I couldn't figure out and it looked like and there was two in the picture of floating spoon. And that there's no other way to describe it. It was a spoon that was floating with a shadow and NASA said that that was just natural wind formations over millions and millions of years. Well, as far as I know I've never seen a floating spoon here on earth. But anyway, did you see that image? What do you think that is that have been something leftover? I I'm actually not familiar with that image. But once again, I think images of that type. There's any number of things photographs of rock, you know, in in in Santa Fe where I live for a little while there's a Iraq. It looks like a camel, and it wasn't a sculpture. It's just purely natural. But it sure as hell looks like a camel we have Castlerock here in Colorado there. John F Kennedy mountain the these things are not proof. But. Believe me, we send people to Mars or we're going to go fossil hunting, and we will probably find fossils. And once again, if there's native life on Mars, there's fossils of it. Because if it's native it was there in the past, and it we'll have left remains when how open are you to when I look at some of the curiosity images that three sixty and I look around at the surface.

"mike helium" Discussed on WCBM 680 AM

"Drug eight three three three seven seven thirty seven eighty four. Welcome back to coast to coast AM are due sky. Got it right there on Twitter. That was Zach wild with his cover version of come together. Pretty cool. All right. Robert, let's get back to the phone calls. And we've got a lot to get in here. And I wanna go let's see let's go out west Mike in Reno Nevada. You're up next on coast to coast. Welcome. Thanks to me a couple of quick questions. Would it be necessary or advantages to I build a moon base? Is there healing suite on the moon? And Secondly this puzzles me greatly. I think I'm correct on this the Russians have never left earth orbit with a man craft. I don't know if it's the van Allen belts. I don't know why and getting controversial. If I may, you know, we have a lot of political divisions in this country. I don't think we could do anything and. And I find it interesting. I two nations in space when non Christian and in a sense capitalist, Nazi Germany and communist Russia. So I'm looking at China, and I'm looking at India. I know that scrawled statement. But at least the first two questions, Robert thank you for that. Mike helium three on the moon, the moon base. All right. Well, a couple of things number one quickly. Yes, you're correct. Russian with manned spacecraft have never gone beyond low-earth-orbit, they sent around fourteen tropes. Tomorrow's and all of them failed. They sent several successful probes to Venus and to the moon. They actually did land a lunar Rover called the Luna hot. But but that that's what they've done. Now. May of course, they've had many successful flights. To lower warp it. They certainly have done that. But. Okay. The big question. Do we need to go to the moon before we go to Mars? No the and for quite a while. I've argued that we should make Mars our goal because Mars is where the scientists Mars is where the challenges and Mars where the future is. Now. The Trump administration has nevertheless decided on making the moon. The proximate goal. Nasa is frankly, not willing to embrace the challenge of humans to Mars parts of NASA are willing to embrace the challenge of a return to the moon. However, in fact, the dominant faction in Nassar right now, isn't even willing to do that. And they're pushing for a lunar orbiting space station, which they say is a necessary step on the way to the moon, which is frankly ridiculous. And I was at a conference in Orlando. A couple of months ago where a NASA official actually got up and said why we building the station. We're not ready to land on the moon. We don't know how to land on what are you talking about? We landed on the moon fifty years ago. And so NASA gotta get it. It it. It's a confidence back and perhaps in that sense returning to the moon. If they actually did it might be useful step in terms of returning NASA to a can-do agency instead of a can't do agency. But this lunar orbiting station is a disaster. If you want to know what it is. It's against is imagine I offered you the following deal. I wanna rent you an office in Saskatoon, Canada, the rents a hundred thousand dollars a month. It's a thirty year lease there's no exit clause. You have to pay to build the building you have to spend one month per year for the rest of your life in fast catoon, and if you want to fly anywhere from where you live you must travel through Saskatoon from now on okay? Is this a deal that you would like I you be insane to accept such a deal? That's the deal that Nastas currently offering America by building a lunar orbiting space station, which is in a weird orbit, by the way, it's an two week orbit around the moon. And it means that only once every two weeks you could travel to it only once every two weeks you could travel from it to the moon or from the moon to it. So if you're actually on the surface of the moon, and you wanna come home the bus only comes by once every two weeks, which actually imposes risk on the lunar base. It's it's not something you want it all so this is a a really bad idea. And you know, it's one of these things where if NASA insist they must go to the moon before we go to Mars, then my answer to them as well. I don't agree with that. But if you must go to the moon before you go to Mars, then get on with it. Let's go to I come up with something else. You have to do before you go to the. Yeah. That's right. That's right. Let's go to first time caller. Let's go to John in Chesapeake Virginia. John. Welcome. John. Okay. We don't have John. So let's go to international. Let's go to Joe in British Columbia. You're up next on coast. Oh, hi, Jimmy. How you doing? I'm doing good. Joe? Okay. How must've been? I'm doing fine to oh. Thank you. I have a question for MRs up in that some scientists believe that days they have poisonous gas. Let's say of the Mars bitches then on gas. Is it to is? It the dots. Moss is it. Both people. The atmosphere is not breathe -able because it's mostly carbon dioxide carbon dioxide is not poisonous. We have it here on earth. Of course. It's it's food for plants. But it's not what we breathe we. But it's not poisonous like poison gas or cyanide or something it's, but you do need to have a space suit on Mars where you have an oxygen supply or habitat on Mars, which has got an oxygen containing atmosphere in it. How much oxygen is in the atmosphere on the surface of Mars meat free oxygen? Yeah. Very little like tenths of a percent of a percent. So we take your it's insignificant. Right. But you know, there was no free oxygen on earth to speak of until they were plants here. Right, right. Free oxygen is an artifact of plants because oxygen very reactive. It doesn't want to stay free at wants to bind to to other things like metals carbon other stuff. And so it's plants that have to keep as it were unpacking it and putting it into the atmosphere with our space telescopes. If we ever spine a spectrum of a atmosphere of a planet orbiting another star. And we see it has free oxygen that will tell us this life there. Let's go to wildcard Dave out in New Jersey. Dave, welcome. You're up next. Hey, jamie. It's really not Dave from New Jersey. It's not who is it. It's I'm the Martian, Jimmy. Okay. Dave. Be two three seven nine is my name. Okay. Fair enough fair enough. Now, we have been demars. I've been there regularly. And I it was McDonald's hair. And actually McDonald's was a brothel really on Mars. No, not really I was gonna say what's the cost of a Big Mac on Mars versus here. That's my question. What do you have for Robert Zuber tonight? Oh, well, I'm sure we went to the mood by. They had the space buggy how they get the space buggy down serves mood. The oh you're talking about. It was the it was like a very lightweight. Hot. Rod. It was it was a two person Bucky and it was built. So light that you you pick it up and carry it around even on earth. I mean, it was like the weight of a bicycle. And what about Dave? Thank you for the phone call, by the way, that's a great question. And this is the other Robert I've been very confused. Why don't we send something like that tomorrow? I mean, the Mars Rover right now that is you know, it's slow it's tiny. It's small. Why don't we build a hot ride like the lunar Rover? And let's let's cover some ground. Well, the thing is this the lunar Rover could be fast because it had human drivers in it. The the Rover curiosity Rover that we have on Mars is actually the size of a Volkswagen. It it's it's it's bigger and much heavier than the lunar Rover was, but it's an automated Rover, and you know, there's a time lag could radio signals from earth to Mars now is the curiosity Rover does have some smarts. If. It will avoid walking right into Iraq or something. But the, but nevertheless, it has to be told what to do. And then it travels a hundred yards and then it stops and waits for the next command. I've got a couple of personal questions. I'm going to get those out of the way after this next phone call. Let's go to Charlie in Bristol, Tennessee, Charlie you're up next. Hey, gas, fascinating show has anyone ever considered? Maybe they've done this sending maybe anaerobic bacteria on love of probes or maybe even cockroaches cockroaches during destructible still need oxygen though. Right. I would think Robert is what about doing the opposite sending life to Mars like bacteria or bugs? Well, of course in the long run. We're gonna send people and people will bring bacteria with them NASA right now has a program in which they try to make sure that nothing. No bacteria get to Mars because they're afraid that if bacteria get to Mars, we won't know, if we find bacteria on Mars, weather, we brought them or whether they were already there. Now.

And there's a lot of people NASA going around right now saying we should never send people to Mars because I think you're sending people you Wilson bacteria. And then they say, we'll never know if there's life on Mars, we go to Mars with people we find life on Mars, if it's native will also find fossils and other biomarkers and will know that it was there before we got there. It's the same way, you know, that the French actually exist that they didn't all just show up when you did.
