"I was a deputy for the team over there. And then i came back. I was a flight director. I was the lead isis flight director. For many years. I had an opportunity to work. Different shuttle missions As their job and then in two thousand and eight. I was asked to go back to russia and run their operations in russia and kazakhstan. So anything did in. Russia and kazakhstan for human spaceflight was my responsibility. And i did that from two thousand eight to twenty twelve. When i came back from that. I came back to isis program. As the deputy program manager for utilization and so we were making a major change at that time and on utilization and how we as a program facilitate utilization and research not only cross our program but across everything we do at the agency and how were supporting that those activities on orbit. I did that for seven years and then just a few weeks ago. I was selected the beat isis program manager so A quick run of thirty years but a just an awesome time. I i tell people. Every day we have the coolest job working for nasa and and what we do with human spaceflight is just just outstanding. And congratulations by the way for for for that. What what an accomplishment to to see your career and then now you're sort of leading the charge on the whole thing. You have such an interesting perspective just based on your biography. You spend a lot of time over in russia. That's quite perspective. Not only did you go there. You stayed there for quite a long time. And then you were starting to to lead the international space station operations given your perspective working so closely with russia you have to have some insight into how this international cooperation that we're talking about four. What is the international space. That's how you open it up how that was shaped. Can you talk about just how those years exploring some of those years over in russia and shaping this international partnership that exists today. You know our time with our russian partners has just been. It's been a learning experience. It's been just a you know we've created friendships. Many of us who've worked with our russian colleagues we have awesome friends and they have awesome friends here in the us and and it was in in the beginning. It was a little different you know. They had They were had the mir space station. They were doing long duration missions. We were doing. Shuttle missions short shuttle missions. You know two weeks you know maybe a little longer than two weeks on on the longer missions but we know they were doing months at a time and we were weeks since so we had to learn how the change in what we talked to people about. Is you change from a sprint. On the shuttle mission to a marathon. You know these expeditions. Do treat them more as a marathon. And that was a learning experience for nasa and operate how we do that. The other big challenge. There's when we started working together with the international space station Part of what was necessary was for the mir station..

"Okay again. Very awesome news breaking tonight ObamaCare struck down as unconstitutional by a federal court judge in. Fort worth. And now goes to the fifth circuit court of appeals were I believe we're going to win that one. And then means going to go to the supreme court again. And it's all because there's no more attacks attacks have been roofs Obamacare's not attacks. Therefore, it's unconstitutional is the basic argument, and it has a good chance. And there we go. But pretty courts can make the final decision. I believe that we're gonna win this one. My extremely extremely tiny LA legal. You know, what I mean on that some expert, but it looks great. Meantime, it doesn't look good as a seven year old dead in our custody. And the thing that is very disturbing is that the girl was in our custody for like, twelve hours. She was waiting for a bus with their father, take her from this remote point too. I think I'll pass oh or. A place like that when she died. She. I wanna make it clear though. And I'll give you the details at once. 'cause I what am I big thing was what's what's the what's the custody issue. Like did she die in our after we got in her custody? And I mean, come on. How's that our fault? But. That question right now for getting a little bit more details. Okay. So they got her into custody at nine fifteen pm. So in total defensive us. It's dark. It's dark. And you have to understand that we cannot just like everybody trying to make the cops experts in everything. Oh, you have to be experts on dogs. He don't shoot a dog after we experts on mental health, you don't shoot somebody who's mentally ill yet to be an expert on this that you get out here, though, that trash that stupid. It's not possible. And it's a waste of time to train people for five years or ten years or twenty years. It's not going to happen, nor should it. Same thing with the border agents. They're not supposed to be experts on health. So they took her to custody nine fifteen. So the average person like you and me would think well. If she's got centers. Okay. But it's it's dark father said she hasn't been able to consume water or food for days. Yeah. That. The dad. So his daughter hadn't been able to put her consume water. The daughter hadn't eaten water or food for days. Initial screening revealed, no health issues. So they did a screening the father said neither here daughter was ill. So the father said, he's not she's not. She hasn't eaten for a few days. She's not ill. Well, there you go. What do you wanna do? Chris. Don't listen to the parents. What do you mean, you want us to listen, the parents, you don't want us to break up the family at this time, they were offered water and food and had access to Russian. There you go. There's your water. Border patrol sent a bus from the MIR station. Ninety minutes away. I bus. Left after midnight. Still waiting for the bus. The father told the agents about five AM the child was sick and vomiting. Okay. So they're in the custody now for. Eight hours agents requested emergency medical technician. Meet the bus on the other end when the bus arrived shortly before six thirty AM. Father toll agents, the child was not breathing. Border patrol then immediately began medical care and requested an ambulance at that point more than eight hours after she'd been detained temperature was one oh five point nine and she was having seizures. Now, this is horrific. And this is terrible. And I don't care what. Or who you are. It's a child dying know. As we talk about this tonight. We have to envision what it would be like to look at a girl watcher dime. And I don't care if she's from Honduras where she's from she's from that furred is dying here in the Metroplex or down at the border. It's horrific and it's just terrible. And it's very sad. But this is not our fault. This is not on us. And it is completely on the father. But when you hear. Beta Aurora in a Democrats they are blaming us directly directly directly directly. Directly. Joaquin castro. Democrats malpaso says this is not who we want to be as a nation. And this is not who we are Castro said homeland security inspector general has pointed out that the Trump administration's policy is causing delays for the illegals trying to request asylum at ports of entry and to try to cross in the more which makes them cross in it forces them to cross and more remote and dangerous parts of the border. So you see that we are forcing them Trump is forcing them to do this. It's Trump's fault. So the dad won't wait. And wait, you know, whatever is a month or whatever takes her three weeks. I don't care by the way. That's his problem. He won't wait at the port of entry. Because he doesn't wanna wait. He doesn't want to. And yet. It's our fault that he goes to some remote part. He's being forced. Because we won't give him what he wants. It's our fault that he's an idiot who chose to March his daughter across the desert, and by the way, the town where the bus was being taken to or coming from was seventy two miles from the border. This guy was already three or four days without her eating. If your child doesn't eat or drink water for three or four days, and you keep her marching in the desert. That's news. You would demand any one of our dads in North Texas who knew his daughter hadn't drank water or eating food for three or four days. If he was out there marching her eighty ninety or whatever degree weather in the sun, you would demand he be prosecuted for murdering his daughter, wouldn't you? But yet this man is a victim. And it's Donald Trump's fault. Nobody forced this man to marches daughter and not let and without food and water for for for three or four days. And he said she wouldn't eat. So we had food and water. Nobody chose to fort. Nobody forced this man to force his daughter to continue on this man killed his daughter. She did not want to eat or drink anything once in custody of us. We are not going to give a full five hundred point inspection in a free healthcare checkup at the border in the middle of nowhere. Seventy two miles from from whatever civilization. Are we now supposed to set up? Ers centers every five miles along the border, which would cost more than the, you know, the wall right like setting up an ER facility, right and staff it with doctors twenty four seven is that we now are gonna do. This is all our fault in our policies. What's is debatable Rourke is even worse. He is worse. O'rourke says that. He's coming back to DC. He's gonna vote against Trump's wall. And he blamed his on Trump. He says as we wall up and militarize the border. We're pushing people to ever more remote strict stretches like this making a much more likely. They will suffer in the process of potentially die. And he said some more things they got a whole bunch of different quotes from him. But he's blaming us. Oh, yeah. I got some more. He's got some real even more. Direct sickening. Statements blaming Trump and blaming us veto. Roar. So this is all our fault. I would love to know how you think this is our fault. How is this? Our fault. Loved would love to hear that would love to debate them. Somebody eight hundred two eight eight eight hundred to eight eight nine two two seven. We'll give you more details on specifically what a what aerobic said this afternoon on this next. October cabin house eighteen in the face. Voting. For. Synagogue twenty nineteen. Bombs.

The I s a critical mission in this story is S T S eighty eight. It's the shuttle mission that brought the unity module to join the first element Zara in space. It was the first ISS assembly mission for the space shuttle, the first time I s elements join together and the first spacewalks for ISS assembly and maintenance SDS Eighty-eight launched on December fourth and return, December fifteenth nineteen ninety eight so tell the story we're bringing in Jerry Ross, he's a former astronaut and flew with Mr. Cabana, Mr. Bob. Cabana the commander and currently the director of the Kennedy Space Center on SDS Eighty-eight. Ross went out with astronaut Jim Newman back during the mission for the first three spacewalks of assembly and maintenance to give you some idea of how cool that is where over two hundred now for I s assembly and maintenance base walks at the time of this recording. So with no further delay less giambra head to our talk with mister Jerry Ross for the twentieth. Anniversary of the international space station and the milestone mission SDS Eighty-eight enjoy.

This was a lot of I this was the first time that the first ISS assembly mission, the first ISS, our international space station space walk to actually do assembly and maintenance very important milestone in the beginning of the international space station program. So I kind of wanted to start by just sort of setting the scene. This is late nineteen ninety eight hour talking about what is what's going on at NASA where we coming from what's going on right now. What's going on one thousand nine hundred eight? Okay. Well, for me, personally, I'd been on one of the MIR missions SEO seventy four when we'd gone up and visit the MIR station, and we actually added the docking module to the MIR station that all subsequent SP. Official visits. There used to dock to the MIR station after that was done. I went into a fairly lengthy period of leading the spacewalking team to try to figure out how we were going to build a space station from spacewalking standpoint, we build a large cadre of crew members and engineers and and flight controllers. We went through evaluated every piece of hardware to make sure that we could physically do what we're supposed to do. Or what the engineers needed us to do to do the assembly and maintenance activities on that? We found many things that were not adequately designed and sent those back to the program and said, we can't do that. And we worked hand in hand with them to figure out ways to fix things and get things ready for us to be able to confidently build the station and maintain it. So this was coming from experiences on MIR to right because that was also a collaborative. Endeavor even said, you were talking about the docking module that fit the US shuttle to the MIR. Right. We didn't do any spacewalking on MIR except for one or two times. Okay. And that really didn't feed into to this effort. But certainly what we did learn on MIR about longer term stays in space in the logistics of it and how to do the care and feeding for the crew members that were up there for long periods of time. That's all certainly folded into our our thought processes in our planning and our execution of station. Once we start staffing it. Okay. So then how how did you even start with if learning to spacewalk, and knowing what you were going to do to actually assemble the international space station. Okay. Well, I had done five spacewalks already by that sorry for spacewalks by that time already. And after the the challenger accident.

"Stage in the potential of a rupture of the gas line. Since then we've been working throughout the evening with our law enforcement partners and Chevron partners unified command to mitigate this incident. We are understanding we've had to evacuate quite a few of our citizens. So safety of our citizens is paramount our number one concern as well safety of our fire resources. What we're at right now is we're working on clearing the gas line of gas. And again, a Chevron folks will talk about that a little more detail. But once that is cleared out. We anticipate defy the active fire that is still burning in the ball to be to be extinguished. We will go in and investigate and ensure that that is the case once that is done then we look at lifting evacuation order again.

When we were notified by confired that there was a wildfire and possible evacuations were needed we had multiple units from the office of the sheriff respond along with Pittsburgh PD because half mile radius went into their jurisdiction off the wall pass we were able to evacuate approximately fourteen hundred homes at approximately four thousand individuals in a very short amount of time. We've set up evacuation sites at the Pittsburgh Mark station and the Calvary temple church off of your four wrote two locations at individuals in bay point who lived there. No these areas, and we're able respond. We recognize that we probably have many individuals who don't have means of transportation to leave the area. We contacted Tri.

They're telling people to her either human beings, how other Americans they shouldn't be deemed no party. They should be all deemed a terrorist group and silk, look, what Hillary Clinton said the other night. She she said it we must be uncivil to Republicans the leadership for the modern democrat party. Cory Booker, Maxine Waters, Hillary Clinton incentivize and encourage violence against Republicans based upon their political belief. Don't you think the president should send the FBI and others to people like Hillary Clinton that encourage violence against Republicans? Oh, absolutely act data should look like they try to be dictator. That's it you telling us you don't wanna be civil in this country until you game. That's an advocate mood wish. The Clintons would go somewhere and sit down. We found out that was crooked. To the MIR station of families are broken up in. Yeah. Family compete with their families.

"Good morning. Rod. Good morning Bill. You I am good. Not that you care. Let me I know when we open up your segment, it's John F Kennedy saying we choose to go to the moon and bring a man back safely in this decayed of the way says that I was watching a documentary the other day, I love space stuff, which is why enjoy having you on the show so much. He actually said that if I'm not mistaken before we did the first orbit of the earth with John Glenn or right after that. I'm early early days, isn't it? Yeah. He had done nine hundred sixty one he had done a an address to congress to sort of float the idea and look like that was going to work, then the speech, you're talking about was the Rice University nineteen sixty two that was the one that really sold it the public. But at that point, we just blown Alan shepherd for fifteen minutes. So so we hadn't even done a circumnavigation of the earth. I mean, we're talking about our guy who's up for fifteen minutes. And now we're gonna go to the moon. It was pretty daring. And what's amazing to me looking back about it was just a editing. This Apollo book, I'm doing predicts year, and every time I step away from it for a while and comback it's sort of scratch my head and think I almost can't believe we did that with that technology back then we can barely do it. Now. Yeah. It's I love watching the documentaries. How outrageous it was? And how it was even within the decade with the two thousand eighteen month delay because of the killing of the three astronauts or the death of the three astronauts, Grissom, white and Chaffee if I'm not mistaken that Apollo one fire on the pad. Yeah. So they had that long delay all of the working on the rocket. But they had to stop development on the capsule to the figured out what went wrong, and when you think about how they were operating right at the edge of this nineteen sixty technology, which really had its roots in the nineteen fifties and the aerospace industry, then it's just astonishing that we didn't lose anybody. Yeah. No, it's phenomenal. It really is. And was fun about it. And I know we're spending a couple minutes on this is this that it really had nothing to do with trying to get better technology, it it had nothing to do other than Hobie at union marshawn is bigger than yours. Yeah. No. It was completely geopolitical thing. And it's interesting because as you know, I go to these conferences all the time. When I hear people talk about it, and so many people who should know better. We'll say, you know, the public was United behind Kennedy's mission to get to the moon. And it's absolutely not true. Not only was the congress divided about it. But the public support wavered between about thirty six and seventy percent, depending on what we're doing. So if they're just been a successful flight or some big news event. Then support kind of went up every other time it went down. So we were spending five percent of our budget on something that was not terribly popular. But worked all right. Let's move over to the two or the astronauts slash cosmonaut that we're sitting on that Soyuz spacecraft that this thing failed and they had to bail out. Explain technically what happens. I was looking at the video and the Russians are not showing us this thing blowing up or what the astronauts actually had to do. They just show the take what happened. It was it was it was high up when this happened. So did launched fine. An apparently sometime around staging when the first stage is dropping off the main boosters dropping off something went wrong, and it's unclear at this point. Whether it was that the first stage failed to separate properly or they also talked about that. There might have been an engine problem. The second stage in the second the upper stages of that rocket the Soyuz rocket have been very problematical. In fact, most of the accidents. They've had been primarily with unmanned flights. Thank goodness have been with the second stage, the first eight seems to work pretty well. So something happened. You can see right before the guys have to abort the flight. There's a bunch of glitter looks like coming out of the rocket. It could have been a blown turbine. I don't know. But anyway, for whatever reason they had to abort that means heady, the abort switch and set of rockets on top of the capsule whiskered away from the top of the rocket, which is fine. The problem is it's a really. Heroine thing you are being slammed around the G forces. They showed video of these guys with their arms flap at around because they couldn't hold them down because there are being banged around so much, and then as you probably saw the press coverage they came back with the call ballistic reentry, which did very early in the space program. But Gemini forward we didn't. So usually when capsules come in that glide a little bit almost like the shuttle did they glide on the heat shield coming into a shallow reentry to keep the geez down about four or five the G forces. Would you come into ballistic reentry? It's much steeper. You're just come plunging. Right back in the atmosphere, and it can go up to eight Jesus. So it's pretty tough. But they made it. This poed ill for the Soyuz program. Once they the various American bees, though says project goes up and the big falcon rocket, which is affectionately successfully tested are those gonna blow the governmental rocket programs out of the water in Russia. You mean in general across the board because a lot of people use a lot of companies use Russia. Don't they? They were less. So I mean, the problem is SpaceX has just come in. And completely tipped over this market because they're so cheap. Nobody can compete with them at sixty million dollars a launch. So the Russians have known their days were numbered for the Soyuz rocket because that's primarily a space station, resupply and crew delivery vehicle, and they knew that sometime between two thousand seventeen twenty seven nineteen SpaceX and Boeing we're going to start doing crew delivery. And we're already doing cargo delivery, not only with the Russians, but also with an American company north of grummin and the Japanese deliver cargo so that's been a mixed market for a while. But yeah, they they knew that NASA is gonna stop ordering those expensive seats on the Soyuz. Eighty million apiece, or whatever they've been charging, which is crazy. So a huge percentage their budgets only about two billion US year this based program but a tenth of ours. So it's already pretty tight and that rocket dates back to nineteen sixty five as does the capsule that was the spacecraft. They designed to beat us to the moon. So it's agent technology. It's been very reliable and very safe. There's only been a couple of losses accrue that was back in the sixties and seventies. But they know their days are numbered and they're working on a new one. But they they're very fond of announcing programs, and then nothing happens for five to ten to fifteen years. So it's really hard to see where it's going to go, but there's clearly a quality control issue. The other problem is we've got a crew of three up there. Now. These guys we're going to go up, and then a couple of other ones are going to get in this in the Soyuz capsule and come back. So they've got that capsule up their that's their emergency a vessel to come home. But that's the one that's cut the whole punch through it. The holes in the what they call the orbital module. So it's not in the same candidate be sitting in the comeback, not in the actual reentry module. But it's still a concern. And that thing only rated through December. So it may be if they have the ground the Soyuz as for a while to figure out what went wrong, it may be the space station is going gonna be empty for up to six months, and that's not good because it's not designed to run empty. Also. It's a mess. I understand. Now, it's been up for so long. There's just so much garbage. I mean, they take the garbage out, but Jerry rigged lines and hoses that is just a godawful best. Well, it's not as bad as the Russian Mir station was back in the nineties that that was really getting pretty threadbare this one. The problem is things just wear out. You know, it's been up there. Crude since two thousand and things are wearing out and had a limited lifespan was supposed to go through about twenty twenty. Now, they're saying twenty twenty four twenty five, but you're right and almost half the cruise time is spent on maintenance and repairs. So some point it just becomes non rewarding to do that. And they'll start to orbiting pieces of it. The Russians have actually said they may take their modules and pull them away and use them for something else because they don't mind using old tired hardware for stuff, and they're pretty good at it. But on our side, we're saying, yeah. You know by twenty twenty four twenty twenty-five we're done. We'll start sending this stuff down the Pacific Ocean. All right right now, we're gonna come back. I want to do one more segment and talk about a couple of other things Jupiter's moon Europa, which is a big big news around the solar system. So we'll talk to that with ri- about that with rod pile.

So that if you had a universal gym, you just rack in more awaits more likely will have bags of Martian Regula and we'll just pack those and lift those, but it's all along the same vector that we're used to. So it vastly simplifies your your performance of countermeasures. Oh, that's right. Because instead of bringing weights with you, you use the kind of the environment around with because masses is a huge concern for just to get there. There's plenty of mass there and we often we think about artificial gravity in in long transits in deep space and giving us that rotational centrifugal force which would put back some of those gravitational forces that's problematic and a lot of ways with a spinning structure. But once you get on the surface, you've, you've got fractional gravity, but it's all linear has got it nature's way if you will. So that gives us something much easier to work with. Yeah. Now how 'bout just real quick go to, you know, Mars mission. There's there's a lot of concerns, but we've already been to the moon now if. You're talking about a moon, you know, list they were. We have a a habitat on the moon and we're living there for long duration missions to sort of test out going even further out. Now, what would that look like as compared to, you know, adjusting from gravity's because the the the trip is much much shorter. Right. Well, it's true. We've already been to the moon, but you could also say that's similar to we. We've already been a lower orbit during the Gemini period. Yeah. And so we knew that people could handle the environment and that most likely they could go longer. But boy, there was a lot we didn't know until we started flying people, long duration on Skylab in the Russian programs MIR station in ISS. So the same will be true with the lunar gravity. We will be able to work quickly. There will be able to walk and explorer. We know that because of Apollo while we don't know is really what are the long term effects of one six g and what are the countermeasures that will will intern need, and we'll add all sorts of. Other hazards with that, it'll be a vigorous of EV a schedule, which is why we're there where where do we floor? Yeah, but it'll be there in a in a gravity field with dust and sharp edges and tools, and all sorts of things that we don't have to worry about with spacewalks on the station right now. And so there'll be many different and new levels of hazard that we will have to learn very carefully on as we go and that kind of blends in nicely to this last topic was hostile and closed environments. Now you're talking about if you're going out for an NBA now you're right. You don't have the, it's if the sure watch out for any micro meteoroid impacts or anything, but now you're talking about sharp regulus, right? Sort of deal with, well, you're talking about that. And frankly, I think you're tools may be your biggest enemy because you're going to be carrying tools to sample or to construct or or to move to repair to build. And that will add a whole new dimension to what we're doing now. Some of it will be easier just because you'll be. To keep track of everything. Not everything has to be tethered, and and if you put a tool down somewhere in a safe place, it will stay there and it will stay safe until you. You pick it up.

"So through this, you're, you're, you're checking out the international relations, you're, you're really checking all of these vehicles and understanding spaceflight from from the surgeon from the flight surgeon perspective. Now, at what point do you start working with the crew? Because I know there's a, there's a point here where you start being a crew surgeon as right. So early on in nineteen Ninety-two we started working with the first Russian cosmonaut that was surrogate quick by the way to fly on a shuttle mission. And so since I was already forming ties with the Russian program, I became deputy crew surgeon for that mission which was SDS sixty. So we'll find out. Okay. Ironically commanded by Charlie Bolden, and that's how I got to know Charlie Bolden pretty well. And we knew that that was just the first part of our exchange program that we were flying Russian cosmonauts on shuttle. We were also going to be flying a US astronaut on the Russian Mir station. I was norm Thagard as the first person. And so my first crew surgeon assignment as deputy on that mission was both in a an awakening really to what it's like to care and care for and feta crew. And to see them end to end you the last to see them before launch and pretty much the first to see them after landing and you're speaking to them everyday. It's really quite exciting, and it's an amazing part of the flight surgeons life at the same time, healthy sprinkling of the international aspect of what we were doing the US Russia. And so for me, those two experiences developed started and developed together. And I, I can't think of taking care of crews that aren't international because of that. And in a really that's been quite a wonderful aspect of what we did. And so after that mission, we. We started gearing up more towards flying norm faggot on the MIR station, and he launched in nineteen ninety-five. So between those two points, I spent a huge amount of time in Russia. Like I think over a year, getting ready for doing rotations over there, doing medical support for training and field exercises, survival and learn to get certified as a flight controller in the Russian flight control centre. Wow, really expanding your skills all over the place. You know we're starting. I'm thinking back to where we started with your interest in marine biology and now you're going through all these different medicine operations. You're looking at the engineer and the vehicle itself.

I was more than that ops lead and John Bryan who's a a legend around here. Just a logistics person. Well known to the international community, and we had this small team that just figured that everything would work out. We just kept bust and chops to make it all happen and low and behold it did. All right. I was it this your introduction to this kind of broader world and understanding this. We really realized that astronaut was actually table. Actually it was. It was probably even later than that, we, we flew the first mission and it went very well not not without a hitch, but it went very well of a US astronaut on the MIR station and the more I worked with Russia. The more I worked with long duration. The more I realized that in the big picture of space of exploration of human expansion, if you will long duration. Flight is how we're going to get somewhere. And in some ways it was much more intriguing to me than the short duration shuttle flights that we were doing. Now, these were fantastic, make no mistake.
