Our Place in Space
"Hello and welcome to misinformation, a Trivia podcasts for ladies and gents who have cooled Trivia and sticking it to join teams at pub quiz where your hosts I'm Lauren in I'm Julia Hey Schule hi, Laurin. We are just were like cranking through some episodes lately. We've been like recording a bunch of Italian. This is our. This is our finishing episode for this recording. And I figured you know what? We haven't touched on space in a while you know. I did that long series about dads and space. Aged MOMS Mason to the mission to Mars like I'm going to go back. To back to the beginning, WE'RE GONNA go back to the beginning, and even though you fear it, even though I fear it.

An oratory. Ory himself. He's GonNa. He's GonNa. WanNa. Make an ordinary, so you're welcome. Yeah, thanks! It's going to be my whole upstairs anyway. So just as an FYI, I I will not be touching on earth because we live here. You know what earth is A. And also I've already done an episode on Mars. So we'll just be doing the rest of the solar system to. Be going in order. To begin with. What is the solar system? The planetary system we call home is located in outer spiral arm of the Milky Way Galaxy. That's our neighborhood. Our solar system consists of our star. The Sun and everything bound to it by gravity. The planets mercury Venus, Earth Mars Jupiter Saturn Uranus and Neptune as well as dwarf planets, such as Pluto dozens of moons and millions of asteroids, comets and meteoroid. The solar system also includes the Kuyper belt that lies past Neptune's orbit, which way back there. This is a sparsely occupied ring of bodies, almost all smaller than the most popular Kuyper. Bell Object, which is Dorf Planet Pluto and we will talk about him in a minute. The most popular, the most popular of the Kuyper belt objects. So beyond the fringes of the Kuyper belt is the or cloud. This junk, yes, the worked cloud over RT cloud. This giant spherical shell surrounds our solar system like a big old bubble. And it has never been directly observed, but its existence is predicted based on mathematical models and observations comments that likely originate from there. So. The or cloud is made of icy pieces of space debris, the sizes of mountains and sometimes larger orbiting our son as far as one point six light years away. This shell of material is thick extending from five thousand astronomical units to one hundred thousand astronomical units, so an astronomical unit just for Reference One Astronomical Unit or AU is the distance from the sun to the earth. And that is about ninety three million miles or one hundred and fifty million kilometers. So one astronomical unit is ninety three million miles so. The ORT cloud is anywhere from five thousand, two hundred thousand astronomical units, so it's enormous. God I. Don't think about okay. The ordered cloud is also the boundary of the Sun's Gravitational influence where orbiting objects can turn around and return closer to our son. So that's that's the extent of how far the sun's gravity pull. Goes, to. The Sun's helium fear doesn't extend quite as far so that's like how far the light can travel from the sun. healers the bubble created by the solar wind, which is a stream of electrically charged gas, blowing outward from the sun in all directions, so it's like the soup that the sun is like floating that creates. The boundary where the solar wind is abruptly slowed by pressure from interstellar gases is called the termination shock, so it's like the edge of the bubble. Okay where it crosses into it. this edge occurs between eighty one hundred astronomical units, so that's the outer boundary of the Helius fear. And I've mentioned this before, but to NASA, spacecraft launched in seventy seven have crossed the termination shock, voyager, one and two thousand four in Voyager, two in two thousand seven. for more on that checkout episodes thirty five moms and space for the voyager program. It's good.

Fresh update on "nasa" discussed on Liftoff
"Agree. I've got a preflight checklist item for you about NASA redefining and sort of saying that it will continue to explore how it defines planetary protection. Yeah I. Read some about this. What's going on here? Yeah, so the story here is that. We talked about in our Apollo. Episodes we've talked about how they all got quarantined. In case, there were like moon, germs or something, and obviously our our conception of what's on the moon, and what's on Mars and all that has come a long way We spent a lot of pros probes tomorrow. We have a much better idea what's going on. NASA is refining its planetary protection. Protocol so. This determines what steps they have to take to prevent contamination when they send various missions, two locations in the solar system, so they've redefined this for the moon and Mars, for the moon. What they've done basically reclassify most of the moon is what's called category one, which basically means that there's no expectation of finding life in any form there and so very little concern about protection needs to be made, which is good because you know all of the Apollo. Missions left like bags full of of human excrement. Stuff! We, we've already left a lot of bacteria on the moon. I'm sorry to say don't go. Your part of the tranquillity anyway. So category one. They're just saying like we know there no moon germs. It's GonNa. Be Fine, and then they're. They're leaving a certain portion. The moon categorized as category two, and this is basically places where water rice might be including at the South Pole and the idea there is you need to take stricter safeguards when there might be water ice present, because one water is is a possibility because any place there's water there could be life I think to the idea that the water might be used by for human consumption and things like that potentially so the idea there is that as that you've got like. Don't worry too much about pollution in category one, but in category to behave using a different protocol. So you know mess up the ice. Yeah, I think that makes a ton of sense and I would imagine it's more about that is being available for different uses as opposed to thinking. There could be life there. Now Mars is a little bit more Kinda Hazy What they've done is made commitment to come up with new guidelines based on what we need to do. If we send humans to Mars, but it's really almost like A. Sort of like a declaration that we will re conceive what the planetary production guidelines should be from ours right now. Mars is category four, which is like super strict. Don't we try to a very hard not to contaminate anything? We decontaminate spacecraft. We send now the truth is. Are we able to completely decontaminate anything that we're putting on a rocket and sending into space. No, but we do our very best to get it as close to completely sterile as possible. Because what you don't want to do, is introduce earth bacteria into a Martian environment where you could then later say hey, we found bacteria. There is life on Mars, and it turns out well. No, it's the stuff you brought with you and you WANNA. You don't WanNa do that. It's the same kind of idea about why we send. Our. Planetary Spacecraft in plunging into Jupiter and Saturn instead of letting them kind of float out there is we want them to basically incinerate and not contaminate even potentially contaminated any part of that system, so so humans are walking contaminants. We are gross is what I'm saying so? We will have to. We will have to come up with some procedures if we send people. Tomorrow's about like what level of concern or we're going to take. And what steps are we going to take? What are the guidelines going to be in order to? Have a level of non-contamination of what is now probably a completely pristine planet, so it's all working progress, but it's a from a space law standpoint. I should have you know. We really need some space law music here. This is sort of a space law kind of thing a little bit space. It's more of a space guideline than a space law, but I think that I think it's interesting so. We're it is worth considering. I think right like smart about. Let's talk about what our rules are about what people can do and not do in terms of junking up the surface of other and bodies well, and now's the time to do it before artists and more private spacecraft end up places like. I didn't even mention that one spacecraft, the the the put a tardy grades all of the surface moon. Try to rein that in, and I mean these rules were put in place for decades ago, and they haven't really been revisited sense and forty years ago. The idea that you would have. A private space company put a human land or download. That was right ridiculous, and and yes, it's a different world now, and they should be reimagined and reclassifying most of the moon is category. One may sound extreme to some people, but it means that we can do this cheaper and more quickly, and that's not necessarily that thing so I'm very curious what they end up doing with Mars I. Would guess that it is something like the moon where instead of being a blanket statement, there's different regions with different categories and different criteria, but. We'll see how that unfolds. I guess. Yup Yup definitely space law. Law Yeah. You take a break. I do because in space. There are two kinds of justice, their space, law and space guidelines. This is their story. I'm working on it. I'm working on it. Let's do an ad. Let's do. Episode of lift-off is brought to you by squarespace. Make your next move squarespace.

Travel to Alabama
"Welcome traveler I'm your host Chris Christensen just see if we don't deliver on that word epic that I put in the intro. We've got lots to talk about as we talk about Alabama. I'd like to welcome the show. Larry Beiber who is a freelance travel, writer and editor also has his own website at Larry Bloomberg. Dot Com, and also at civil rights travel dot com, and he's come to talk to us about Alabama Larry Welcome to the show. Let's great to be here, Chris. This is a show that is about a year and a half in the making at least not with Larry. We just got him involved recently, but I've done three trips to Alabama last year and a half and had been really wanting to do a show about it. But I really wanted to do it with somebody who knew more about Alabama than I did and Larry. You've lived in Alabama for eleven years. I, think. We say that's right over a decade. And you came there to work a job in the travel magazine industry at. At coastal living, which was based here as is southern living in cooking, light and a lot of other magazines. Why should somebody go to Alabama? There's lots of reasons and I think the place to start is that most people don't know about Alabama? They they know. Their stereotypes there's. There's what they've heard over the years, but the truth is the south remains one of the most colorful and least understood parts of the country and the best way to learn about. It is to go there, and it's easy. It's easy to do and this I. Think will turn People's view under head. It's the center of Civil Rights History which I think. A lot of people know in the best way to understand that as visit the sites where these famed events happened. But it's also got incredible food. One of the most vibrant food scenes in the country right now mountains in some of the best beaches in the country, if not the world, which again does not fit that stereotype that people have the deep south well. I'm going to be one of those people that admits that I Alabama was something like my forty seventh state to go to or something like that, and it was kept to the last somewhat because I grew up in the sixties, and my picture of Alabama was what I saw on the nightly news. It was that troubled. Civil Rights history that we talk about which we can. Celebrate what happened now and and what went on, but it was kind of tough to watch it all going on at the time, and that colored my views of Alabama for pope. And I have fallen in love with the state here in the last trips that I've gone through and a little surprised to say that because I didn't really expect to. But what would you recommend for an itinerary for Alabama? Alabama literally goes from the mountains to the seas in I I would start just for simplicity's sake in the north. In Huntsville and in the Florence area where you will see incredible NASA rocket history because I was intrical part of the NASA system, the NASA development and then. Some a rock and roll shrine in the muscle shoals hall of fame, and then down to Birmingham where you do find that civil rights history where a lot of those disturbing images happen half a century ago. Frankly and now it's one of the most vibrant food scenes in the country and a place. That really has a buzz to it. There's a lot of new parks architecture. There's a lot of people they may be. Decades ago would have left to go off to find their fortune in New York or Los Angeles. And now they're staying there and creating some wonderful things and then I. go down to Montgomery with the state capital. Eight incredible new memorial is just open. I don't know if you've seen that. The equal justice just there. The Lynching Memorial, which I was told by an architecture critic, maybe the most important memorial in this country in the decade. Right up there with the Vietnam war memorial to the victims of lynching very sobering in your face, challenging kind of place, then go out to places I don't think are as much on the radar for people as far as Alabama mobile is a surprise mobile I call the little easy, because it's a lot like New Orleans, but it's tiny. It's much easier to navigate in. It's a lot of fun and then down to this beautiful beautiful Gulf. Shore beaches, the white sands, sugar sand beaches that I literally I been in Borussia of all places in the Indian Ocean on the beaches, and I came to the Gulf coast the next month. For some reason, it just worked out in the Gulf coast. Beaches were better than what I had seen in the Indian. Ocean Sept-. Beautiful I will back you up on that end in both a surprise part and the beautiful part. That will give you a good week from north the sound that

Turbo. Part of the agency's scientific balloon flight. Program managed by Wallops flight facility recently carried especially designed payload to study these clouds, high resolution cameras were arranged to create a mosaic of both wide and narrow views for the first time, a laser radar was included to measure the precise altitudes of the clouds and the temperature fluctuations of the gravity waves above and below them, the six million pictures captured combined with light measurements will help. Scientists visualize the flow of energy in the atmosphere and a better understanding of atmospheric turbulence will ultimately help improve weather forecast models anywhere on the globe
Harvard, MIT sue to block ICE rule on international students that would prevent many from staying in the US
"New rules from the U. S immigration and Customs Enforcement or ice. They say international students cannot stay in this country if their schools go entirely online in the fall, And I mean this could potentially impact hundreds of thousands of students who are here. That includes Victor Troll. See from Venezuela. He is an incoming master's student at the University of North Texas, and he talked with one of our producers. Let's listen. When I first heard the news. I honestly thought that it was fake news. It doesn't seem fair that we're being asked to leave the country on the technicalities in our immigration status. Because of something that we cannot control. So, Elissa explain what's in this new federal room. So if your school has come out and said, due to the pandemic, we're going to all be virtual in the fall. The federal rules says. You cannot remain in the U. S. To stay. You have to transfer to a school that's offering in person classes. Here's Rachel Banks from NASA Association of International Educators. It really removed the decision making power from higher education institutions. Basically, this guidance has said. Well, if you're going to pursue a fully online model You can't have international students on your campus. So I says the dinos is to minimize the risk of transmission of Koven, 19 by not admitting students into the country who don't need to be here. The State Department issued a statement saying the guidance will help with social distancing on campus. The timing is really significant because colleges have spent all summer figuring out their plans for the fall, and many have already told students what they're going to do, including moving up the school start date to avoid a possible second wave, which doesn't leave a lot of time for schools to rearrange their plans or for students to transfer to another program. I mean, this is all so complicated for students, but also I mean for schools. Isn't this going to be a financial hit? Don't Don't colleges and universities get a lot of money from foreign students? Absolutely. International students tend to be a big moneymaker for college. According to one economic analysis. International students contribute $41 billion to American High red in just a recent academic year. Some schools have already announced that they will be online in the phone. That's including Harvard in the California State University system. As cases have started to rise. Other schools like the University of Southern California have scaled back initial plans to be all in person. Now they're planning a hybrid approach meeting there some face to face instruction in some online, the experts I talked to say they expect more schools to take this hybrid approach. It's actually one way that colleges might be able to help their international students navigate this guidance because students will have at least one class in person. All right,

Reinventing the Wheel: NASA's Spring Tires
"NASA engineers are reinventing the wheel. This is innovation now bringing you stories of revolutionary ideas, emerging technologies and the people behind the concepts that shaped the future during the mid two thousand. NASA worked with industry partners to develop the spring tire, an airless tire made of several hundred coiled steel wires woven into a flexible mash. When the Mars Curiosity rover experienced significant wheel damage, engineers thought spring tires might be a better solution, but the steel tires deformed as well. A moment of serendipity helped researchers spring into action. Here's Colin. Krieger a mechanical engineer at NASA Glenn Research Center. We have integrated a very unique material shape memory alloy, which are center is one of the world's leading experts then shape memory alloy as specific class of metals that can undergo a fully reversible solid to solid phase transformation. So you think of like water can go from a liquid. Liquid to solid and back and forth as essentially what this material does and with Spring tires made from this nickel titanium alloy NASA engineers are reinventing wheels that could roll across the moon and

So I want to try to go as quick as we can, but also give you the opportunity to give thorough answers and again. Thanks for coming on me right in the book extensively. Absolutely. Thank you, sir. You're accessing the book, and you just make the point that the president is incapable of this job that he isn't willing To put in the work, and it's all about himself. I'm sure you are aware of some of that belief before you came to the White House. I'm sure you saw it fairly quickly. Why not leave right away? Once you realize the president is Curious. Well, I have certainly heard the criticisms before I joined the White House on. But I'd also had a number of conversations with Trump before the election during the transition during the first year, I recount some of them in in the book. And he knew what my views were. He knew my approach to the major crises that I thought we were going to face. So hey, gave me the offer, so I assumed he had paid attention to what I said, and I felt Despite all the criticism that we could make it work, I felt the United States was facing ah, number of very severe threats and challenges around the world. I thought after eight years of the Obama administration, we were In jeopardy and a number of places and I thought I could make a contribution. The book really is the story of whether I turned out to be right or wrong about that. But You know, it's Ah Ah, What when you're in when you're trying to do the right thing, trying to give advice to the president. Ah, and work on policy matters. You continually hope. For the best outcome and you know, you understand a lot of your recommendations are going to be rejected. That's the way it works. I used to say I was the national security advisor. I was not the national security decision maker. Everything's jump in just because just because our time is short of it once you realise that he wasn't paying attention to the briefings and and the way he was talking Two fellow leaders in his deference to Putin and Erdogan. Others wasn't there a party, they said. I just shouldn't be a part of this. He's never going to change and I want to get out of here. Sure that's the point out is coming to everybody's got to make that decision for himself. I've been criticized sort of on both ends of this by people who said you should have resigned after the 1st 30 days of the 1st 60 days or, you know, pick pick a number. And I've been criticized by people who have said you had a duty not to resign. You had a duty to stay in until the very end. I suppose there's a big alumni Association of former senior advisors and office holders in the Trump administration. I know a lot of them went through the same kind of decision that I had two. It's a very personal thing. How How long do you put up with the sorts of things you've asked about? I don't think there's a perfect answer. I considered resigning several times before I ultimately did. I don't. I don't think you ought to resign in a fit of pique. I think you ought to make the best effort you can hit history will judge that That's what I can say. But I think people made these decisions in good faith.
Astronauts perform 2nd spacewalk to swap station batteries
"Their second spacewalk in under a week to replace old batteries outside the international space station. Commander Chris Cassidy and Bob Banchan ventured out today to tackle the cumbersome job. NASA plans to send the astronauts out twice more this month to complete the battery swap outs that began in 2017. The new lithium ion batteries should last the rest of the space station's life. K
A NASA astronaut's tips for social distancing
"It can be really difficult to adjust to social distancing in quarantine. Fortunately, we can turn to some experts for advice. This is innovation now bringing you stories behind the ideas that shave our future. No one understands isolation better than the astronauts who have successfully lived on the International Space Station for days weeks and months over the past twenty years. They've shared some tips to keep us emotionally healthy. During this trying time on earth, self care is critical whether you're going out in. In public or not personal hygiene, getting enough rest and balancing, work and personal time are all important. Get organized and establish a teen to reduce stress. If you're stuck in the house with other people, it's important to be good communicators talk when something isn't right. Actively listen and offer solutions, not just problems. If you're by yourself, find ways to be social while still following social distancing guidelines. This is a great time to make phone calls US video apps or write letters. Most importantly remember we are not in this alone and together we will be earth strong.
NASA's 'smell of space' is available as a perfume - Engadget

It may soon be made available to the general public, according to CNN Notice. Space was developed by chemist in the founder of Omega Ingredients to help astronaut Get used to the smell of space travel. What's in it, But it smells like a mix of gunpowder seared steak, raspberries, rum.
NASA Needs A Toilet That Works In Microgravity And Lunar Gravity
"I. Don't think we actually ended up talking about this yet. Even though it's been something that I think it was on several of our radars for quite some time now we always are getting into some of the unexpected ramifications from the Covid, nineteen situation and I don't know that these are related, but maybe the fact that we're focused on it now more than we would be if we weren't all under this pandemic situation, the fact that NASA is offering people a little side money, a little side Gig. I know you've seen this what he I think. They would like you to Come up with a toilet. NASA. The NASA by the way. The whatever it stands for North American space guys. Matt Sustain. National Aeronautical. Agency came very high and mighty when I didn't get mine anyway. We all know what NASA is. They have the lunar. Lou Challenge sees me. It's administration. I don't WanNa. Leave the people wrong. Lunar Lou Challenge I. Don't think we even said what it was so i. don't think we let anybody wrong the only way they. Yes, they would like to create A. For Space, specifically, it has to do with the moon and the base that they would like to build their. That's why they're calling it the lunar Lou. Qualified for that here's somebody from well. You may not be, but that doesn't mean everybody's not. Here's a dude from NASA explaining a little bit. Hollow it just was not animal tail. Astronauts do not take. The Apollo bad scenario again there's suction involved or any good seal, but. On for going number two, so it's not just sitting on a toilet and going. STRAPS and harnesses. So I you know I'm sure what he has all the answers because he studied how astronauts go to the bathroom for years now, but the headline and I've tweeted out the link by the way you could win thirty five thousand dollars. Maybe I should mention that right upfront which I gotta be honest doesn't sound like enough to me. You create a toilet that they use with NASA. Seems like there ought to be a little bit more donut for you, but thing says help astronauts go back to the moon and twenty twenty four NASA seeks new designs for a toilet that will work both in microgravity and in lunar gravity,

It's you know, there's there's we were talking about running when show Suni Williams earlier, and she famously ran the Boston marathon in space, but there's another marathon runner Chalene Flanagan and she wanted to New York City marathon last year, and she had this great article talking about her bring other women into this running club. And she said it's not so lonely at the top. If you bring others along, you know, and and that passion, you know, talking to one another making room for more women in science technology, engineering and math like we we have a responsibility to pull each other in and say, look what she's doing.

"So this is like, that's that's my like technologies on on the forefront are really about. How do we how do we go to deep space? I mean, it's it really is exciting. It is cool. It was just what about the question. We wanted to ask do you guys have a favorite bass craft or air draft. Could you choose out of terrible choice to force you to make? A terrible choice for me to have to make. 'cause I love well, I like aircraft and spacecraft. So the x fifty nine low, boom. Fly demonstrator is one of my favorite aircraft right now. Just because it is exactly what NASA does does the work to create the next industry in our country, which is really amazing. And that's the plan is to playing. Create a supersonic plane that reduces the noise of the boom and and can fly over land and open to civilian so just open centers. Thirty minutes. I love I love spacecraft and right now, my favorite is deployable entry vehicle. I guess I have to say these TV having working so. So I don't think we have picture for it. But it's side by side aircraft took on sip. These like looks like a helicopter, but I said of one Mingo three two rotors and these wrote of overlap, but they're synchronized so like the blaze. Yeah. Kasich until they're on these overlapping, we were still working the need. But ah looks like a improve deficiency by twenty percent in cruise flight. Oh, so cool. That's really. Yeah. That's cool. Yeah. That might be soon. What about you? I I'm Sarah. We all lift, Lloyd. So anything that flies through the air or just in love with. So I'm worth seeing actually air is a fluid. We said that up in the beginning. Yeah. As fluid amasis aerospace engineers, we consider anything that's gas or liquid anything. That's deform -able. My hands. Yeah. Yeah. My favorite's happened to be the ones I've worked on. Yeah. The really exciting piece of that is like, you know, in my career, so far I've gotten to work on the Ryan space vehicle. We've applied the PSP there. SOS at trespassing swing is one of the experimental aircraft that we are testing and collecting a lot of date on assessing. And I think the really interesting part. I remember when we did EM one of the Orion spacecraft and woke up early because you know, it was launching at Kennedy. So it was like three o'clock in the morning here woke up early, and I've been here maybe four years at that point. So you're just shy and and excited. But yeah, it was like magical in my heart because you know, my fingerprint was on that. Yeah. And it's really cool. And like each one of us here have our fingerprints on something like that. And I think it's a wonderful example about NASA that it's like not any one of us creates an Esa less or an a dead or drone. But it's like this community of experts across many fields, including the two of all that like it's important to get the PR out there and do shows like this show. This is what now is doing. So we have our fingerprints on the knife. Because we all have a little piece of the story. Yeah. And it's all about telling her story. Yeah. We have some questions about your careers. But a quick technical question for Sarah. How is it going to reduce the super sonic, boom? So that would be the xfinity nine experimental plane. So the way it reduces the boom is by virtue of its geometry. So you can design the the vehicles geometry to create a pressure wave does that does not have as much of allowed boom when it reaches will when it when it creates that shockwave. The geometry of the plane. Yeah. And if we can think of that, it was like that pressure wave that we hear the sonic, boom. That's energy coming from the airplane and hitting our ear. So if we can distribute that energy over like a longer nose, which will look at the hill, get pictures of the x fifty nine see how long the nose is. Then we're not decreasing the energy. That's coming to us to our ears. We yeah. So that's why it's called a low, boom. There's still a boom we changed. Visit. We have tried. Cool. Okay. Well, I do have a comment from the chat. They said these women are such inspiration..

"All right. Teams that we have again run out of time. And while we would love to spend the rest of our show with you guys. We, unfortunately have to think you and sake. Thanks, guys. So remember, you guys are watching us in Silicon Valley live today. We're celebrating national stem day by talking to some of the amazing wonder women of NASA. And if you have any questions for our guests, fill free to write them in the chat. And if you wanna learn more about women at NASA, you can go to women dot NASA dot gov. All right. So let's go now to our fabulous 'aeronautics crew. Let's bring out Nettie Patricia and Sarah come on out. Share having way too much fun. So I think I can you ladies introduce yourselves. And I know you guys are all aerospace engineers, but what exactly do you do? Okay. I'll start. My name's Nettie route. Airspace engineer, and I lead our pressure sensitive paint technology here at NASA Ames. Okay. Three seven through two. I'm gonna space in euro. So. Supercomputing supercomputing awesome. My name Sarah Sousa, and I designed guidance and control systems for spacecraft. All right. Should we find out where you go from? Origin stories have how did you know you wanted to do this? So I will claim that I knew when I was eight months, eight months. Kid when I was why kid is because when I was a freshman in college are sorry sophomore in college. I was able to get a internship at Johnson Space Center and work alongside astronauts who were on the space shuttle and many years later. My sister was going through our photo album. And she she sent me a picture as a picture of my mom, holding me when I was a baby and with a picture of the space shuttle in the back room, and I just I just think everything I've done throughout my life has been influenced by my family, and what we did as kids. I've always space, and it's always been something. I love your parents did. Copy of the day. My dad took the picture. Dad is very much a space enthusiast and a dreamer. And I definitely get that for my dad too. Pretty cool. So what about you Patricia? I remember took me to the planet Tanya when I was like four years old. And then so surprised but all stars you could see. And so I thought that Boeing that I wanted to something space today to and then when you know, when they always ask it's what do you wanna do when you're like a grownup? I was always saying, but then when I was in high school, I was pretty good in math physics. So I decided to go for engineering well like with space outerspace space engineering. Okay. So we have a photo of a young you can we get that front. Well, he's not old voting. Yeah. That's two years old. He's a was thinking, I think one moment after I started my internship here names on the first time, I visited this computer on. I was so surprised he was so big unload. Super Peter happened to have a name that we may know about. Yes. So this super computer. But yet anes we have another supercomputer that he's called Electra. We're actually building a third one Lewis cool those platies and electro rate. So what about unity like, what's what's your origin story? Yeah. I grew up in Tennessee. Remember going to see a see the Saint Louis arch. And I remember driving across the bridge and going to the Saint Louis arch. And I just you know. Lifted both of these things that are studying drafting in high school, and how these are extremely impressive. I wanna do whatever it is that can produce something like this. So I went into college started studying mechanical engineering, and then found fluid dynamics thermodynamics. Wow. You're speaking, my love language, the world made sense at that moment and just kept. We're going my way that had an internship as well here at NASA. Ames we go my way over to the Winton divisions. Wow. This is really cool. Yeah. These giant compressors radiators and all the things that you had studied there in your in your textbooks. We here in life and huge. Yeah. And then I found my way over to pressure sensitive paint, which which was just a a great melody like hardware-software wind tunnel. So really my happy place. A photo of young Nettie..

"So the bay focus that we do is billing planning scheduling tools is so I get to actually learn about everybody else's job in order to create these offer tools. So and then I get to test field them in different places. So I get to learn about how trainers might be teaching astronauts how to do their job. I get to go to mission control. Learn how they control robots how they manage the international space station, how they schedule astronauts time, and all we take all that information in order to build and design our tools, and then we get to test them in different environments. We've gone to test them everywhere from underwater in the extreme environments of analogues. We also work in analogs, but these analogues Dona -sarily have to. To simulate a planetary environment. It is simulating some aspect of mission control. So they have a slightly different or they're trying to push some aspect of human spaceflight, maybe 'isolation. So we give them our tools, and we get feedback. I've gotten to go to places like volcanoes and the mission under the water in underwater. The Arctic mission control of Johnson Space Center. I'm sorry tool has been up in space station. So that was also very exciting. Pretty cool mission control is the the brain of the space missions, right where they're controlling. How would you describe it? Yeah. So mission control. So we have astronauts up in space ation, and they're super busy and the whole entire space station is manage by a huge team of controllers back on ground. And so they're located physically in Johnson Space Center, but there's also different smaller mission controls. I'm in Europe in Japan, and we have another one in Alabama. We also actually have one here. Nasa Ames, and they all coordinate to make sure that the space station is healthy that all the science payloads are working and that we're keeping the science the sorry. The astronauts working if they have any questions, we keep them healthy. So did you bring a photo? I think she did. And this one has a really cool background story. Yes. So this is a picture of me in at NASA Johnson Space Center in mission control. So this is when we did our first appointment of our tool up in space station. So I got to sit down in mission control. And I got to talk on the loops, which is just the the way they talk that the the communication loops that they have and. Yeah, it was very excited. We got to talk to the astronauts and work with them that whole week that we were there through your voice is forever like down in the NASA record. So I was actually very hesitant to talk during during the mission and one of my colleagues was sitting in the front room. So there's actually multiple not only are there thousands of people that multiple rooms so sitting in one of the back rooms and someone in the front room calls over, and it's like, please give me a status on playbook. That's our tool and so forced me to actually talk on the loop. So that might Boyce was forever. Tempted to say Houston, we have a problem. I actually very hesitant about talking because it is they are listening to so many conversations that I didn't want to like add to that problem or add to that workload. So I was actually very much like I'm gonna just be here. Unless I have to talk them only gonna talk, but he called me out..

"I ever got. It was absolutely true. Right. That's simple comment. Relies on that kind of person engineering. Awesome. Pretty cool. Cool. What about you, Jessica? So I have always been interested in science and love learning and math and ever since. I was a little kid. And I remember my dad taking me to see the Haley's comet when it was passing. And so I would always had this interest in science, but it wasn't until I got to undergraduate, and I was sitting engineering at that point that I really understood how I can contribute to NASA in how I can contribute to the space program. So it was actually through an internship here. Nasa Ames, and I learned about how NASA work what kind of careers are involved in engineering or the different aspects that I could work on in order to contribute to human spaceflight. And then that let me to apply to grad school, and that's where I really started focusing on the intersection of humans, and engineering so understanding how we can develop and create tools. That support people in a very complex aerospace system. So my focus is always how do I make this tool better for people? And that's how I I. That's what I do. Now here in nessa aims. Okay. Well, let's bring up Jessica's origin photo. Because this is also a cool one. Yeah. So this is a picture of me back in nineteen ninety eight I did my, internship and this cohort of class. We had a research project. We got to visit different NASA centers. This is a picture of visiting the space shuttle, Atlantis when it was being refurbished, and it just got me really excited about working with people in human spaceflight, and there several people in there that also already now still work at NASA. So it was a pretty great sett- teams. Not only at NASA. But didn't you mention that a lot of them are here at Ames as well. Yeah. Like, our whole little cohort was really titan. And we all got the space, bug and. Yeah, some of us work here. Some of us work at Jan Johnson. Space center. Yeah. And then our mentor for that program. Also helped me get my job. So it was quite a life changing, internships or agree. We to get started. Awesome. About you. Cathy, I had to a hominid. I think I one was when I knew I wanted to be a biologist. So my background my educational background's a little unconventional I completed sixth grade, and then my father moved my sister and I over seas. So that was pretty much the end of my education. Until I moved back to the states, and I started at community college, and I took a biology class because I had no idea what it was really about. And I remember just sitting learning about the inner workings of Sal, and it's like a whole nother world whole universe inside of of us that I had no idea even existed. So that's when I was fascinated with biology, and I was sold how to do biology, and then for when I decide I really wanted to be an Astro biologist was I.

"And and so when it's going to reenter, it's going to come in into shell shallower angle and it's not shallow shallow, just kinda grazes skipping a rock. And and it's a small spacecraft as he saw, it's only about one hundred thirty kilograms hundred pounds. And so again, if you wanna make a splash through a bigger rock, right? The rocket better and and it was going relatively slow because it was in orbit it it's top speed was only about one point, eight kilometers per second, which is slow. It doesn't flow. He's a slow. So all those things lead to probably very small splash. So not a lot of material got up if hardly any. It didn't just have to splash splash enough of it to get into sunlight so that the Hubble space telescope could see because it can see in the dark. So that's where, again, the next NASA impact emission. The next NASA Ames mission to the moon, comes in three out of the five lunar missions manage her aims. This, this. First one, man, it aims is actually quite a leader in Linda research. I just want to mention that my questions are not looting at the moment, so I don't have any questions from the chat for you just yet, but hopefully we'll get those up and running before the end. So we can through a lot of questions. So we can put you hot. Questions. Now l. cross just mentioned is a special mission for the to view, right? Yes. Tell us how you were involves. Tony's Tony's ideas. I held it. Crazy idea. Nine told him about and she said, yeah, that's crazy enough. It could work. So what does that stand for cross? No. Lunar crater observation sensing satellite. That's part of the quiz. Not the the sport. L. crow..

But first let me introduce my co host, Cassandra bell. Hey, hi. So this is NASA in Silicon Valley. Live a conversational, talk show out of NASA Ames research center with various scientists, engineers, and researchers, and all around cool people at NASA to talk about all the nerdy NASA news. You need to know about if you like that we're simultaneously live on twitch. That is twitch. Dot TV, slash NASA, and we're also on Facebook and YouTube. And if you wanted to live in our chat, gotta catch us on twitch. But if you want, if you miss a live show, we will be on demand after the fact on. NASA TV, and we also have the podcast for an audio version if you like that better. So today we have with us, our guest Tony cola preach and Kimberly Eneco Smith. Thank you both for being here and can tell us a little bit about what you both do. Thanks. I'm a planetary scientist here at NASA. Ames have been here by fifteen years, almost exactly fifteen years and as a planetary scientist and mostly study planetary atmospheres, and surfaces really focusing on ISIS and and other volatile 's at freeze out. I also design and build instruments that go to different worlds and make measurements of the atmosphere is in surfaces and things like that. And can really thanks for having me. I'm a research astrophysicists here at NAS aims, and I've been here a little bit longer than Tony. I study the universe and I also build payloads or instruments, cameras, traumas that help us understand the universe around us both near and far. So I have dabbled a little bit in some of Tony's planets as well. Very cool. Most speaking of nerdy NASA news, NASA just turned sixty. Birthday now. Should sing. Oh, there last week we had cake. I had a lunchtime meeting. Cake, won't NASA turned one in October. First, that would six years would be Tober. I nineteen fifty eight. She doesn't know what actually happened to that point because like picture the president signed thing and then NASA suddenly existed or birth certificate. Must have been built on earlier research labs that existed at the time. It was 'aeronautics was the focus of what the laboratories did. They want doing space research yet, but they were very heavily into understanding arrow dynamics, aerospace engineering, and what not to help really the fledgling airline industry and aviation industry. You know doing the things that they couldn't do helping them do the research. They couldn't do pushing the envelope, you know, you know, see what else you could do, you know, by different designs. Yeah. And that was the NAC, right? Yeah, yeah, knack. Okay. Don't call it that. No national advisory committee for 'aeronautics is preceded NASA, right? And I've been scolded for calling it Neka we are NASA sow his NA. That's right. There are three centers time, right? It was one out of Langley Virginia, east coast, these coast. Now that's Langley. What's it called now. Langley laboratory to the Langley research center, one in Ohio. Was he has, no, I always forget this one was Vincent. What was it. Louis Louis, Louis, close movies. Now, of course, the Glenn research center, I know that. Yeah, and then our favorite, very favorite. I can't remember the third. Out here in California. Oh, the aims. You might have been there. The aims. So now known as Ames research center where we are right now. Yeah. And now we have ten field centers doing all kinds of amazing work. So to learn about the last six years of innovation, go to NASA dot gov, slash sixty. Yeah. So in this episode that we're going to focus on the moon research, the lunar research that aims has worked on over those years since NASA was founded. And if you have questions, be sure to leave them in the chat, and I'll be checking for those and trying to throw some those in leader. For example, already, we have questions from Zaza lavender is asking what things will you be exploring on the moon? We're gonna come to that. That's at the heart of today's episode. So to kick things off, we're going to go to our first segment. Let's play. Let's rule that..

"Follow the sun. Presented by science at NASA. The sun, it inspire songs warms us and grows our food life on land in the oceans, the daily weather and long-term climate patterns happened primarily because of the energy we received from our closest star. Even tiny variations in that energy can affect the workings of our planet's atmosphere. NASA uses instruments to follow the sun and monitor the amount of solar energy coming to us the latest instrument to do. So the total and spectral solar radiant, censor Tesis one makes those measurements with unprecedented accuracy. Tesis gathers information from its perch aboard, the international space station or the ISS flying on the platform that the orbiting laboratory provides has allowed teases to continue Nasr's forty year record of tracking the sun's radiant energy. One of the longest and most important climate data records gathered from space. Over the past several decades. Earth's ice mass has diminished, sea levels have risen drought, and precipitation patterns have changed, and growing seasons have shifted to understand the causes, including human influences of these changes and refine the models used to simulate earth's climate researchers must know the amount of incoming solar energy. Peter Paluska Tesis lead mission. Scientists explains when there's a balance between incoming energy from the sun and the infrared radiation earth emits climate remained steady. An imbalance means energy is either being stored in the system causing temperature increases or lost causing temperature decreases energy from the sun makes up half of the balance equation. Even though the measurement record shows at the sun solar energy output has not had a major influence in recent climate change that output needs to be monitored continuously. It is arguably the most important variable we need to know to understand climate says Paluska trying to understand climate without measuring. The sun's input is like trying to balance your checkbook without knowing your income climate is measured over longtime, spans decades to centuries and longer. Unlike weather that changes over small timescales to be able to connect measurements over longtime periods. Continuity and accuracy are key teases has to sensors the total radiance monitor as its name suggests measures all of the radiant energy from the sun and the spectral radiance monitor measures. How that energy is distributed over ultra-violet, visible and infrared wavelengths. The latter helped scientists understand where in the atmosphere, solar energy is being absorbed. For example, teases spectral radiance measurements of the sun's ultraviolet radiation are critical to understanding the ozone layer ozone in the stratosphere absorbs ultraviolet light. This heats the stratosphere and drives changes in atmosphere, wind flow that can propagate down to the lower atmosphere and impact climate. So many factors influence. Earth's climate says police key.

"Your shoulders well i certainly go to sleep at night feeling lucky that i get to work on such an interesting problem but you know i think as donovan was saying the more you work on this the more you appreciate how infrequent these are how well are are atmosphere has protected us from from these events so i sti sleep pretty well it has been a great project has been a real a real gift to be able to work on the i i think think so so too too that community engagement we we find a lot of people that like this problem so much that they do it as a hobby because there isn't a lot of funding i would say that through other means and so i i would say that they tend to be happy that nasa is investing in this and to have a a project which is continually working on the problem well you guys have been amazing and i'm still looking forward to understanding a little bit more so is there anything that you would add to this conversation to let our listeners know not to be afraid or maybe not that but any advice or any encouragement to what you're working on so that it's not something they have to worry about right now a lot of and information stories out so there are ways that anyone interested can find out more about the specific work the simulations we do and they're wondering now so resources for that but one thing that was told to me early on in the project is this is a natural disaster that we could potentially know about an advance and do something about and arguably the only natural disaster that we could mitigate so put the infrequency on top of the potential to actually do something about it it is a threat that we want to be aware of and the ability to mitigate depends on knowing these this can happen and then having some predetermined strategies for dealing with it and so that's really part of the the effort of this project in the global us strategy go nasa that's awesome you've been listening to the nasa and silicon valley podcast if you have any questions on twitter we're at nasa ames and we're using the hashtag nasa silicon valley remember we are nasa podcast.

"Earth's magnetic fear. Presented by science at NASA. Invalid or planet and protecting us from the fury of the sun is a giant bubble of magnetism called the Magna spear. It deflects most of the solar material sweeping towards us from our star at one million miles per hour or more without the magnetosphere. The relentless action of these solar particles could strip the earth of its protective layers, which shield us from the sun's ultraviolet radiation. It's clear that this magnetic bubble was key to helping earth develop into a habitable planet. Compare earth to Mars a planet that lost its magnetosphere about four point. Two billion years ago. The solar wind is thought to have stripped away most of Mars atmosphere possibly after the red planet's magnetic field dissipated. This is left Mars as the stark barren world. We see today through the eyes of NASA orbiters Rovers by contrast, earth's Magnus fear seemed to have kept our atmosphere protected. After he is S two of the juice base physics laboratory at NASA Goddard Space, Flight center notes. If there were no magnetic field, we might have very different atmosphere left without life. As we know it. Understanding our magnetosphere is a key element, helping scientists someday forecast space weather that can affect earth's technology. Extreme space weather events can disrupt communications networks, GPS navigation and electrical Power grits. The magnetosphere is permeable shield. The solar wind will periodically connect to the magnetosphere forcing it to reconfigure. This can create a rift allowing energy to pour into our safe haven. These rifts open and close many times daily, or even many times hourly. Most of them are small and short lived. Others are vast and sustained with the sun's magnetic field connecting to earth. In this way. The fireworks start. Zest, says the earth need fear absorbs the incoming energy from the solar wind and explosively releases that energy in the form of ju- magnetic storms and sub storms. How does this happen? Magnetic lines of force converge and reconfigure resulting in magnetic energy and charged particles flying off at intense speeds. Scientists have been trying to learn why this crisscrossing magnetic field lines called magnetic reconnection triggers such a violent explosion, opening the rifts into the magnetosphere Nasr's Magnus Feerick multi scale mission or MS was launched in March twenty fifteen to observe the electron physics of magnetic reconnection for the first time bristling with energetic particle detectors and magnetic sensors. The four MS spacecraft flew in close formation to on the front side of the earth's Magnus fear where magnetic reconnection occurs. MS has since been conducting similar hunt. In the Magnus fears tail MS compliments missions from NASA and partner agencies such as thymus cluster and geo tail contributing critical new details to the ongoing study of earth's magnetosphere together data from these investigations, not only help unravel the fundamental physics of space, but also help improve space, weather forecasting for more on the active space around the earth.

"Really long time ago so um and i'll i'll do a quick fastforward because when i was already add at nasa uh i was over at my mom's house one day and she she says greg i want to show you something she shows me this little thing drawn by a six year old who turned out to be a really long time ago and it was a drying of of a few space ships and and it said when i grow up i wanna work for nasa and this one is this miss during the gemena program and i remember the mercury program to although is really really young than so i kinda i i guess it was probably and the 31st chromosome somewhere somewhere in here you know kind of destined to be my my dad also was here my parents met here at nasa ames research centers my wife and i met here at nasa ames research center it's kind of the family business buried here we didn't well is a big fan of you the other would have had to convince my wife i think so my dad was the was the guy that proved that it was possible to navigate to the moon during the apollo era and this was rain around 19 sixty yeah yeah and and so fast for it a little bit to my teen years uh you know like like jim i was good in science and math and what not on my built my own observatory we have a family ranch about an hour and a half from here in and i built and observatory ground my own mirror in it and everything and use that for uh for a few years and so uh and then when i was out of graduate school i just was talking with someone and who happened to work here and and she said i need to combine meets and people and that was uh thirty three and a half years ago now why.

"And thus one way but deal that aspect of janabi is to really work actively with a investigator and collaborators to generate new data and so we we work with pi to have their funding from nasa twos fly of animal models plant microbes in its best issue and we we help them maybe get more information from their samples and make sure that all or makes gone to that abbas at the end who this is the side that i know a little bit about from working at aims hour by science department they work with researchers that other institutions right right who want to fly an experiment the space to do their science that's what you're talking about satan will help them carry out that experiment and then also we get to use the data absolutely so there is that aspect of a nasa aims were investigator will work with a principal investigator from uh that got funding to actually fly on the isis mission and and speaks week experiment so part of our work he's also there and i think do you do something new abidjan lab that as the new project manager i'm trying to push for he's ready i really think that ginned up should be serving three different communities so that that i repository by itself rudy that data really tux to the specialist the by information that can going there and donald did that i and work with man interpreted that specialists yes very very specialized people scientist but then you have another group which is the scientists in general which they don't know how to do the bioinformatic but did no ought to ask the right question and so we want to provide tools for them to be able to access to information without having to do all these very tedious and slow work so some of the repository did are being used to be processed to generate a new level of data that we would call higher order did add that can be interpreted and from their front since the idea would be he's dare a signature of cancer in some liver samples that i got from the space station so a specialist on cancer burden.
