NASA's Orion capsule enters far-flung orbit around moon
"NASA's Orion capsules now circling the moon in an orbit stretching tens of thousands of miles. The unmanned space capsule and three tests dummies entered lunar orbit more than a week after launch and are now about halfway through the test flight, Orion is shooting for a maximum distance from the earth of almost 270,000 miles, which will be a new record. Artemis rocket mission manager Mike seraphin earlier this week. I will simply say that the results were eye watering. The rocket performed and or exceeded expectations. Orion will remain in a broad but stable orbit for nearly a week, completing just a half lap around the moon before heading home. This is considered a dress rehearsal for a potential lunar landing with astronauts by 2025. I'm Jackie Quinn.
"nasa" Discussed on Today, Explained
"It's been an eventful few weeks at today explained midterm elections, Twitter drama, big tech layoffs, cryptocurrency controversy, a global climate conference the World Cup. And finally, Thanksgiving. We were so busy, we didn't get to wrap our heads around the hottest new space news. But thankfully, our friends at unexplainable did. So today, we're bringing you their work. Enjoy it, unexplainable, now available wherever you listen, accept the radio. I don't think they're quite there yet. You are watching the flight readiness briefing for NASA's Artemis one mission. The agency's Artemis mission is being heralded as the start of a new era of space exploration. It will be one small step towards one giant leap. NASA is closing in on a launch date for Artemis one. The first in a series of missions that will eventually take humans back to the moon for the first time in over 50 years. With one big difference, this time we're going back to stay. NASA is hoping to land humans on the moon by 2025. But after that, they've got bigger plans. They're hoping to build an orbiting lunar space station and a permanent base on the moon itself. In our goal is to apply what we've learned living and operating on the moon and continue then out into the solar system. Our plan is for humans to walk on Mars by 2040. A permanent moon base and a mission to Mars could be the first steps toward becoming a multi planetary species, where earth isn't our only home. Where we're not confined to one vulnerable pale blue dot in case of catastrophe. Eventually, we can imagine a solar system full of human life. Human settlements in space in which tens of thousands of people will live and work. But there's a pretty basic thing standing in the way. Space is terrible. It wants to kill us. Science writer Rebecca Boyle. You know, we've evolved to live on this planet and this planet only. Pulled up in there. Whether it's the weightlessness, the radiation, or even the isolation. Space is trouble for lots of different kinds of life. It's hard to raise fish or rats or mice or any other kind of species that we've taken up there. Sadly, 53 mice died in space, as did 8 gerbils. It's hard to even grow plants in microgravity. Which makes NASA's grand vision of a permanent presence far from earth. A pretty risky proposition. Space is really nasty and it's very hard to be there for any period of time, even with a spacesuit and a space station surrounding you. Okay, everybody, look, we got a number of long range problems right now. And we barely understand the dangers of space. Especially when it comes to living far from earth for a long time. Like, over 600 people have been to space, but only 24 of them, less than 4%, have been more than a couple hundred miles from earth. We'd like to confirm that the
Bills beat Lions 28-25 for 2nd win in 5 days at Ford Field
"Tyler bass boots a 45 yard field goal with two seconds left as the bills hang on to beat the Lions 28 25 on Thanksgiving Day. NASA heroics from 8 necessary after he missed an extra point late in the fourth quarter, which allowed Lions kicker Michael batchley to sign the game on a 51 yarder with 23 seconds left. Sometimes you do everything that you write and sometimes you just get unlucky. We got unlucky, but we have a great group of guys that support me and have my back and I was able to reset and focus on the next kick.

Kathleen Madigan on Why People Have a Personal Connection to Trump
"That's an interesting sociological thing 'cause you play all over the country. What is it? Do you think? What is the personal connection to Donald Trump? I don't know. I don't know why, like one lady in Florida. She was kind of a drunk grandma. You stood up in a balcony and a theater somewhere on the gulf side of Florida and said, Kathleen, I love you and I love Sarah Palin. Don't make fun of her. I had not said a word except Sarah Palin, comma. Now if the lady would have listened, my joke was really about the gist of it is there's no people in Alaska to have more respect for you if you were the game warden than I would if you said you were the governor because there's a lot. It's a lot more dangerous if you're okay. It's a stupid joke. It's silly innocuous. But that lady was so upset because she like, I don't know. I'm like, you can't love me and her. And you're at my show, so I'd pick me if I were you. Which one is it? I don't know what the Trump thing you could do any other Republican, any other Democrat and people do not lose their minds. There's something about I know this is going to sound snotty coastal liberal elite, but an education problem where they're just like, oh, I want people that sound dumb, like me. I just can't. I don't understand what the connection is. I it could go back to the, you know, George Bush, people are like, I'd like to have a beer with him. Right. Well, right. You might want to have a beer with me, but I shouldn't be running anything. I mean, just because I seem fun, which I am. You are that doesn't mean I'm qualified to work at NASA. I don't understand that leap. When people say, I think George Bush seemed fun too. The younger one to have a beer with after golf with a country club. I get it. Right. But what is that next level where I defend him like I would, my brother. It's weird.

NASA says its asteroid defense test was a success
"NASA says it's asteroid mission was a smashing success It was a save the world test the dart spacecraft was going after the asteroid dimorphos And we have NASA administrator Bill Nelson says the refrigerator sized spacecraft travels 7 million miles from earth coming in at 14,000 miles an hour And it was a bullseye Nancy chabot at Johns Hopkins University says the test was to see if in the future a killer rock could be nudged out of earth's way It just gave it a small nudge But
Challenges Today at Team Gallagher
"We have some challenges here at team Gallagher, team Gallagher, because COVID has paid a visit to our New York offices and kind of taking everybody out of commission. Eric Yuri, they're fill ins aren't able to fill in. So we got some, we got some rookies today. We got some newbies fly in the plane. And we couldn't be in better hands. Alex and William, godspeed, if I get impatient, bear with me, because I'm a nut. So just live with that. But these guys, Williams started the job, I think, yesterday or two days ago, and this poor guy is now thrust into Yuri's job, Yuri has to push more buttons than an airplane pilot. Eric pushes more buttons than a NASA space commander and so poor Eric and Yuri are quarantined at home connected to Alex and William in New York and so it's a cluster and but we're on and everything's working. Audio's coming out of the speakers. We got a camera on the Salem news channel. And we're going to get through the show with even if there's a hitch or two, it won't matter because, hey, none of us are Herschel Walker.
Bam! NASA spacecraft crashes into asteroid in defense test

Why is a NASA spacecraft crashing into an asteroid?
"NASA's asteroid experiment is set for Monday It's really a dress rehearsal to save the world in case a killer asteroid ever heads our way A spacecraft named dart will zero in on the asteroid Monday intent on slamming it head on at 14,000 mph the impact should be just enough to nudge the asteroid into a slightly tighter orbit around its companion space rock demonstrating that if that asteroid was headed to earth we would stand a fighting chance of diverting it Thomas zurbuchen is with NASA These threats are real And I think what makes this time special is we can do something about it Cameras and telescopes will watch the crash but it will take days or even weeks to find out if it actually changed the orbit I'm Shelley Adler

"nasa" Discussed on Short Wave
"I guess it was 1985 when you decided to apply to be an astronaut with NASA, first of all, where did that idea even come from? How are you, why are you even thinking about that? Well, so in 1981, this was sort of the end of my first year at Stanford. That was when the shuttle flew for the first time April 1981. And that made huge news. The U.S. hadn't flown in space in a few years. And of course, this was just a completely different kind of spacecraft than it had ever flown before. It wasn't a little capsule. It was this sort of big, beautiful spacecraft that looked like an aircraft, and it had the capability of doing so many different kinds of things. And a lot of what it was going to be doing in space was science research. And a couple years later, when I was right in the middle of my PhD, Sally Wright fluent space, and that was a huge deal. People often ask, hey, did you want to be an astronaut from the time you were a little kid? And I said, well, you know, I grew up in the Apollo era and of course everybody was talking about it, but nobody would ever ask a girl. Do you want to grow up to be an astronaut or when did you think about doing that? So it was a big deal in 78 when the first women astronauts were selected and now finally, the first woman was flying and of course that was followed by other women in the class. And I could also relate a little bit to Sally also because she had gone to Stanford, which is where I was at the time. She had been a physics major, which had been my majors in undergrad. And really, those things made a huge amount of difference to me because if that hadn't been the case, I just don't think I could ever, ever have pictured myself doing something similar. So about that time NASA was talking about selecting another group of astronauts. And some of the other grad students were saying, oh, I'm going to fill in an application and send it into NASA. And I remember asking, is that how it works? You just fill out an application and send it in. I mean, I had no idea at the time how astronauts were selected or anything like that. And so that was really the first time that I actually wrote NASA and asked them to send me the information about how you apply. And a couple years later in 85, when I actually got my degree, I sent in my application to NASA, but of course, knowing how many people actually apply, really, I never expected to hear anything back from NASA. So of course I had looked for an interviewed other jobs for PhD researchers and I had taken a job at sandia national labs in Livermore to join your research group there. Okay, so the first time you applied to NASA, you never heard back. And then I guess it was in 1987, you sort of reactivated your application. What happened.
"nasa" Discussed on Marketplace Tech with Molly Wood
"A lot of NASA's work has to do with what happens here on earth, especially as we work to track and respond to the climate crisis. And at NASA's earth sciences division, much of the data collected by future missions will be stored in the cloud, hosted by Amazon. That's partly because the agency needs more, well, space. It has troves of images and readings from generations of satellites. The earth science archive currently stores about 40 petabytes of data in the next four years as it launches more missions focused on the earth and its climate, it's expected to generate more than 5 times that. For those not familiar with the petabyte, just one is enough space to store about 250,000 full length movies. Kevin Murphy is the chief science data officer for NASA. He says it may be more expensive to store data in the cloud, but it should make the data easier to access, and for researchers, businesses and maybe you and me to use. So, you know, we launch missions to address very specific science questions. So that's one type of user. But this information is freely and openly available for anybody to use to conduct citizen science activities to help plan how we work within the environment, how we make new discoveries on Mars or from the sun. So, you know, that information has so many other purposes that we need to make it broadly available. Part of this is you're moving a lot of NASA's data from various physical locations that are run and controlled by NASA and universities into the cloud. Why are you doing that? And we're doing that for a variety of different reasons. One, you know, we can take advantage of new types of technologies like AI or machine learning. And those environments a bit more easily. The second thing is that we can, especially with these very large amounts of data, remove some of the burden from the users of having to download the information and then you and kind of organize and manage it themselves. If you think about how hard it is to find photos in your photo album about specific events or activities, we can apply similar types of AI to do similarity searches for interesting events in this giant pile of data. So I want to try to help people wrap their heads around this by having you walk me through the sort of data story of a mission. And I was looking at this specific example of the S.W.A.T. program surface, water, and ocean topography. So can you tell me about that mission? And the type and scale of data you expected to generate. So this is going to be one of the first missions that we have that's really able to kind of look at large rivers and lakes and map those over time to see how they change. So it's going to be really important for a variety of different things that actually impact people on a pretty regular basis. And this is going to be one of the first satellite data streams that we have that are really cloud native. And this will allow people to access this the multiple petabytes that it collects each year in a much more interactive way. For people who don't necessarily spend a lot of time thinking about data and petabytes and how much NASA's collating and figuring out how to sort through what do you think is the most important thing for them to know about the work that you do? The most important thing to know is that these investments that we place in scientific instruments and satellites and rovers the data that come back from there is incredibly valuable. There are things that we don't know today about the information that we collected before. And through kind of well managed data programs, we can maintain that information for future generations to make their own discoveries. Kevin Murphy is the chief science data officer for NASA. In fact, he's the agency's very.

There's there's there's a gap that we call the great crew change you know. That's when the when the the grade silver with great. What do you want to call them. They left and there's a gap. There's like a fifteen to twenty year gap between the next block of people that are blow them. Dc the same stuff in nasa. I wouldn't necessarily say so. I would just say that in mission you just have a lot of younger people because it is a lot of shift work. You're working nights and weekends and it just takes a lot of energy and flexibility with your time at some point a lot of like controllers ended up moving on into more Nine to five type jobs or they're not being asked to turn around a product in one or two days. They're given more a more regular schedule. So you just see a little bit of that Split between mission control and then the other organizations like the program office reengineering directorates. You'll just the just a younger demographic in mission control. We talked about demographics too. And we're seeing. We're seeing a change in the eight years that you've been there. I mean what in we're seeing a change also in the oilfield. We're goes from the other dinosaurs. We've always done it. You know like you know the the white shirts and ties and like there's we've always done and nagazine much more you know you're seeing much more diverse. You seem like new ideas. New technologies coming out. Which kind of breathing this pulse of life and the oil and gas industry is in. You're seeing that kind of to over nasa which is kinda cool. Yeah i definitely have seen it personally myself..

Okay you've got a map of our galaxy. The size of the earth on that scale. The separation of the earth and the sun is one millimeter. So that just tells you so. Think of one millimetre on this Compared with the size of the earth. That's telling you just how much bigger galaxies than solar systems. So even if you know four point six billion years ago This planet got kicked out of the solar system. It won't be that far away on on the scale of a galaxy. It's still round somewhere announced or he comes to curve ball. Could it be planet nine. Who knows that's a really good question. planet nine still hypothesized as being this very distant objects that is in a curiously long gated obeys. Yes it's possible And that's underlining what. I've just said it's not gone very far. Still a now someone system i think Planet nine is proving extremely elusive. We really don't know whether it's there or not Some scientists have come to the party and said there's no need to theorize that there's a planet nine because it's these allegations of of the orbits of distant icy asteroids. Basically illusory is just because we're not saying all of them so it's still in the melting pot italian and i'm sure you will revisit pundit nine at sometime in the future whether it's through mentioned it for long times so i thought i'd better. It came to mind with respect to always question..

It's still around somewhere announced or he comes to curve ball. Could it be planet nine. Who knows that's a really good question. planet nine still hypothesized as being this very distant objects that is in a curiously long gated obeys. Yes it's possible And that's underlining what. I've just said it's not gone very far. Still a now someone system i think Planet nine is proving extremely elusive. We really don't know whether it's there or not Some scientists have come to the party and said there's no need to theorize that there's a planet nine because it's these allegations of of the orbits of distant icy asteroids. Basically illusory is just because we're not saying all of them so it's still in the melting pot italian and i'm sure you will revisit pundit nine at sometime in the future whether it's through mentioned it for long times so i thought i'd better. It came to mind with respect to always question..

"Which you know if you've got a low pressure region than the the tide comes up higher so you can get these king tallies It's nothing like to nami. It's not that kind of thing we're talking about is just an increase in the title rage. What i guess concerns me our interests me about this is that With with a sea level rise that is a is a process. That's going to continue for a very long time. So when we get to the next phase of the of the moons Processional period which will be in the twenty fifty s with probably gonna get even more effects from this so the twenty fifth as we're going to say much more of these coastal an intrusions of water so it's Yeah it's it's a it's a good warning it's actually come from ocean scientists as well as astronomers This this work. It's been done a very careful work. It's easy to find the reports on the they've taken. The results from many many oceanographic studies unfolded them into what we know about the effective tides. In the moon's the moon zovut. So yeah it's It's a it's a. It's a a well menton well-placed willing yes in dade and it looks like they're projections. Go wrought up to about twenty eight hundred seventy. They've got a pretty good idea of what's going to happen. I would imagine that if you're in the thirties and one of these Super king todd's as opposed. I ended up calling them in journalism. starts to happen at the same time as you get a a massive low pressure system and tropical storm of some kind in the same area again. Imagine what that would do. That's right that started. Let's hope that doesn't happen. Yeah exactly Very interesting stuff. And you can actually look up that piper. I think it's available to nasa and It's widely published so it shouldn't be difficult to find By the by for i used to live in mci in north quainton jay moved up just after we got married. Now they have king. Tides have playing fields around the some of the beaches day and quite often. They'll a couple of down to water when todd and the The the real interesting thing that i've done in mocatta try and alleviate. Some of these tidal surges is that they have built channels in the city. That when you get a big todd comes in the channels fill up. Said the land doesn't go under We used to live in a house that had these channels behind them and it sometimes was was full to the brim of and then six later it was empty. It was getting quite fascinating. Well that's have someplace especially because it. It moves so fast. When when the todd's going out that water actually goes in a rush you. It's a different world. There may not grew up ran the newcastle area. Where the it's pretty mild Make would be wouldn't be the simon sydney but up in mccaw. You could actually walk with the incoming.

That kind of influence of things like the moon on on our water. Wise he just quite intriguing. I do find it. Amazing and witness some pretty amazing them. Todd's and king towards over these two.

"With the naked eye but it changes it enough to affect the moon's influence on the title earth. And so what happens. Is that sometimes. During the eighteen point six year cycle you get high tides being a bit lower than low tides being a bit higher which means the ranges is getting smaller. But at other times kind of the other half of the cycle. If i can put it that way. The high tides are higher and the low tides are lower.

"That really inspires you to move forward. And that's one thing. I found with every single mentor. I've had at nasa so far as they are so excited to talk about anything really they are so busy as we all are but they will always find time to chat with you about anything because they just love doing it and that kind of support that kind of unrelenting unwavering amazing support is what propels interns at nasa to great. Are there other ways working alongside. Nasa technical workers has helped you absolutely. I've had the pleasure of working with a lot of fabulous people. The technical workforce that have exhibited the same kind of inspiration and passion and drive for for their interns. And for people you work alongside with that have motivated you. You're they've taught me not. Just technical skills are hands on skills as well but also of a wide variety of exposure and experiences so many different fields. You know having having added this world mentors is incredibly important. But it's even better when you have this fabulous. Nasa technical workforce supporting them as well. And as a whole you just get an amazing amount of exposure to so many different kinds of people with different backgrounds with different passions different drives and creates this kind of community for you. That's that's very unique and that's one thing. I found that that technical workforce has really helped me in his finding my place finding a safe space and understanding space to help me understand and grow and a place that really wants you to flourish and develop as an intern and as a person as well you talk about this support system and a great networking and people really just pouring into your lives as interns and you mentioned that you've changed your mind a lot of times as you've gone through the internship process..

"They couldn't tell the scientists at nasa about or the didn't want that information to make it to their adversaries so so one of the late one example would be remote-sensing programs not the cool and not like astral travel etc but instead they didn't want the soviet union to know the quality and the resolution of images that nasa was able to obtain. They wanted out there and they were also worried that using a lot of classified technology or the equivalent of that. Even if you know. Like if someone at nasa did invent camera that was just as good as a classified one that no one knew existed. There were worried that would reveal. Just what the. Us was capable of surveillance wise and that would help other nations improve their own rnd and that would or or they'd figure out a way to break that innovation so these are understandable. But what it meant. Is that for a time in a very basic level. Your coworker is essentially trying to stop you from working like their job. Becomes to stop you at times. That's that's a really weird position to be. Yeah it's also because of other reasons we mentioned A lot of these folks probably grew up with aspirations of working for nasa. And all of these kind of like huge idealistic notions of what it meant to do this kind of work. And then you get there. You know you make it all the way to the fbi the and then all of a sudden. It's not what you thought it was. You know i mean that happens to. That's a very good point. Man that happens to a lot of people you know you you get in and you get disillusioned or you start to look at things up close and yeah it. It's it's a difficult thing and a lot of people were tuned into. They know exactly what we're talking about without going into further detail..

"Shut it down and this like this is a real fight that occurred multiple times because the the spook agencies wanted data because they wanted to do everything they could to avoid giving the other guys in edge and then there were things where the military became self interested. The tragedy of the challenger disaster was a was a concern right to the military. But maybe not for the reasons you think. Some factions were more upset that the launches of military satellites were delayed and these launches military satellites. We're not really publicized. A pr nightmare and like the optics of it. Really you know. Put egg on our face in terms of like that whole global supremacy vibe that That we need so desperately or at least certain sets do in the government. Yeah absolutely absolutely and this leads to sleeps to multiple problems. Part of it is how absurd and surreal the secrecy got and the need for. Secrecy was valid but they did go hard in the pain on it over the decades the the various restrictions the compartmentalization of information project to project kept the vast majority of of this story out of the public eye because again nasa is meant to be above the earthly problems of geopolitics and military conflict. But if you look at it objectively with you know jamesy david's research what you see. Is that nasa often struggled and failed to follow that mandate. And it's not. We're not here to demonize n- acid all because they were their hand was forced multiple times by very powerful entities. But like what are we talking about. We know we know some of the reasons at least now that they had get in bed with the spies. I guess there are reasons why they they had to get in bed. Nasa had to to work with the spies they're also big challenges that these spies directly gave to them that freely hampered their stuff and from what. I'm reading ben. Correct me if i'm wrong here. A lot of it had to do with wear like physically where they could have missions have training have like actually send spacecraft up into orbit That was a big fight..

"Here's where it gets crazy. Nasa was a front for the cia and the deal. Yeah sort of and the interro sh yes. Yeah they were there deep with the alphabet in a way that remains largely unknown today the central intelligence agency and the department of defense looked at what was going on. You know from from before the formation of nasa nineteen fifty-eight like you mentioned earlier. They already knew a good deal when they saw it and they worked closely with the space agency by hook or by crook to get what they wanted and they sometimes they even conspired to halt the progress of nasa and then sometimes it gets complicated really quickly because what you need to understand is when you're watching those swelling inspiring documentaries about you know a small step for man kind of stuff in your patriotism. There is a figurative smoky backroom behind those stories and in that figurative smoky backroom. A lot of stuff almost went terribly wrong and only twenty twenty would write. This stuff happened decades ago and more recently than you think.

"To be clear. You know it's nasa was never the only the only operation in space right. The soviet space program got the first living person space Also the space program launched a space stations before nasa got involved with skylab and then later the iss which is a multinational thing but these still were making big moves and as the decades added up in the years wound on nasa and its counterpoint and other countries funneled untold amounts of money countless years of research more into this literal final frontier. And know when you're speaking earlier you talked about project. Mercury how there were more two million people from government agencies and the private aerospace industry notice they say government agencies plural. We'll get to that but it just just everybody noticed that part and at the same time that this amazing astonishing exploration and research is occurring. The world is struggling with. It's own earthly problems. Some of which are existential threats that remain with us today disease. The specter of nuclear war crushing poverty natural disaster and nasa sorta soldiers on surviving these uncertain times. It's portrayed as a political if propagandistic it is still a political in its aims. Its civilian operation. Oughta military one.
