"The official podcast of the nasa johnson space center episode to thirteen taking the temperature of earth. I'm gary jordan. And i'll be hosting on this podcast. We bring in the experts scientists engineers and astronauts all till you know what's going on in the world of human spaceflight. The international space station is a wonderful place to conduct microgravity science. And it's a hot spot for a lot of experiments because of this capability but the space station also allows us a great vantage point to look down at our own home planet. Pair that view with a very capable international laboratory with lots of power and data available and the possibilities sore or orbit. I guess one experiment onboard station right now is helping to see how effectively plants are using water across the planet. The experiment is called eko stress. Which is of course. An acronym for ecosystems space-borne thermal radiometer experiment on space station. Joining us from the jet propulsion laboratory is keri caused. Nicholson who describes more about this experiment. And how it's helping to understand how efficiently were using our water across different by oems and factoring in climate change. Also the way. It's helping with urban areas and volcanoes in even looking at wildfires across the western united states so let's explore earth science taking place right now on board the international space station. Enjoy.
NASA's Orion Spacecraft Accommodates Astronauts of All Sizes
"Nasr's orion spacecraft is designed to accommodate astronauts of all sizes. Who may need to spend weeks at a time. In the capsule this is innovation now bringing you. Stories of revolutionary ideas emerging technologies and the people behind the concepts that shape the future. The orion spacecraft features advanced technologies that can sustain the crew during long space travel. Here's sarokin diani. A human systems engineer at nasa johnson space center on the ground engineers and astronauts simulate many of the tasks that will be performed in the crew module evaluating how astronauts interact with displays. Controls seat design sleeping at exercise. Accommodations and more the orion crew will be able to command the ical using three multifunction displays space shuttle crews had to use nearly two thousand switches and controls to command. The call astronauts will sleep in sleeping bags hung in several different places in the cabin to maximize space. There are even armholes so they can use their tablets before they go to sleep. All of these details are planned and tested to be sure that the crew can live and work comfortably and efficiently no matter how long they call the capsule

"I name. Is sandra mariner. I started running about six years ago. When my daughter was trust country she inspire me and i started running about twice a week. I now run everyday for the last year. I've been doing a running street. I've ran about twenty four hundred miles in two thousand of those have been with my best friend camille. We meet at four thirty in the morning. Which means i have to get up at four change quickly and drive to the park. Sometimes we do speed workout. Sometimes it's heels sometimes is at temple ron or an easy ron and you'd all be done by six. Am so i can go to work every run with. Prepare you for the mouth on the easy. Ron's recovery runs speeds and heels work on your fast muscles and the long run wilson. You're doing this for long. Run important to prepare with good nutrition and especially good. Hydration means drink just enough water but enough electrolytes to help you. Better be ready for fifteen or eighteen miles or more. I run my. I have mine down in two thousand fourteen twitch kids say i was half crazy and i surprised them when i announced that i was wearing full my i found the following year proving that i was fully crazy since then. I've run five marathons running houston in chicago in washington d. c. and next year get to go to boston and new york city because i qualified love. There is a race that i really like. It's called the texas independence related. He said team relay where ten people ran from saturday morning to sunday afternoon. Nonstop and for two hundred miles. We don't sleep. We get very little to eat and we ran in keyed or the calls in through the night. I know it's a little crazy but my friends makes it easier and the one thing that keeps us together. Is the love for running. My name is sandra from northwest. Houston and this is houston matters. Poet rita dove is holding a livestream reading and discussion on mondays. Part of imprint. Houston's margaret brown margaret route brown reading series dove is a pulitzer prize winner and former. Us poet laureates the first african american to hold that position dove often uses historical events in her poetry or channels voices of other people to write from their perspective. What are known as persona poems. An example of that in her new collection of poetry called playlist for the apocalypse is a group of poems written from the perspective of a spring cricket. She tells me that exercise was inspired by something. Her daughter did when she was three or four years. Old had a period which you went through the house saying nobody loves me but the spring cricket which took us by surprise. Ed yes i know but we my husband and i were trying to figure out why the spring creek seem to be the only one who cared for her but so i thought what would a spring cricket do how does the spring cricket think or love and that's what started it how did i get into the mindset of a cricket. Well well there are other crickets in the poetry world but for my cricket i first of all research. The heck out of cricket's. I knew so much about crickets ads. And anything unusual. you learn. that surprised well. One of the things that. I didn't realize that they really live about ten weeks. They have a season. And that's it. I don't know why. Because i never really paid much attention to them before. I never stopped to consider where they went when they disappeared in the winter and just assumed kind they would be back. The crickets are back. That it's a new quick. That a crooked has allotted. Life of song is something that was totally surprising to me and so to have these invisible creatures. What what intrigued me about these crickets were that we hear them. They are part of our sometimes our delight and sometimes are irritation but we hear them and we take them for granted. There are background music. And yet they have a whole life of their own the parallels between that and in marginalized groups and how they feel invisibility of certain groups was not lost on me and so i can't tell you any further how i got into the mindset of cricket. I felt that the cricket was just talking to me and i was taking notation. There's lots of a possible Metaphors there there's a there's opposed to the crickets. I think being captured in a jar and enjoyed by children with long with a bunch of other crickets and the children child is entertained by it. And there's a lot of you could potentially Parallels you draw from that. Yes there are. I mean that was one of the first cricket owns that i wrote which is the spring cricket considered the question of negritude and that title came from the fact that up. There's this old saying that. African americans like crabs in a barrel New try to get to the top and then you keep getting pulled back by someone by delicacy by by environment. Whatever so using that sense of getting to the brim and then always falling back. It's what began to fuel that poem and the notion that for the children of course if these crickets are all gathered together sort of like in of course it evokes slave ships trade. And that kind of thing. They're put all together in this jar to the children who do that. It's such a delight to the cricket. It's the end and they can't get out. What do you enjoy or appreciate about embodying. These other voices whether it's a cricket or something else in the work that you get to do he. It's so interesting. Because i i think that when i look back on on my my work i realized how many poems there are how many times i'm sipping to someone else's life first of all it's less a matter of trying to hide behind someone else because i think that actually persona poem allows me to bear more to actually feel more naked than if i were adopting could persona of myself. This is something that we all do. You know But to speak to somebody else allows me to filter it through their lives also speaking through another person or being's voices such as cricket. I try to be as accurate to their surroundings in there the particulars of their circumstances as possible and that for me i'm always struck by how many parallels how many similarities there are between their world and my over centuries over couldn't doesn't matter they're still that sense of connection and if there's a sense of connection over centuries are over over gender you know whatever then we really have the capacity to connect with one another regardless of our differences so that to me is is another golden thread that goes through the writing of appall even if it's in persona an interesting to see parallels in your own complicated life as a human with something small that seemingly small in the earth that we often feel disconnected from.

"The first day of school. What's been on your mind. Well at first. I was very optimistic. Because i saw the cases going down and people getting back stated in starting toward their masks more but then esco approach cases got worse and people started arguing even more than before and so i began to worry knowing that the mass mandate was lifted at my school of how many people showed up without their masks People which is with their masks and help you would talk to each other like react to people. Not wearing masks or the people wearing masks. Now i wear a mask to school and most of my friends do. And i try to keep a close circle of people who i feel safe with within these hard times and i was very nervous and i remember the first day of school walking in. I felt like this huge way on my shoulders by my friend with a mask. And i was like. Oh i'm not. The only one looks good so going back to last year. What was your school year experience. And did you have to do most of this online. Did you do some of in person. What was it like living through an entire school year with the pandemic well last year. I did my first semester of school online. And then i transferred to in person but masks for mandated at that time and i remember just being really confused with what was going on because part of school was online and part of schools in person and most of the teachers didn't even know what was going on and we had a lot of technical issues so i would say to sum it up. It was very confusing. And honestly i think it really shaped me as a person today because now i'm very like motivated and i didn't think i was as self motivated as before because like all my school made. I had to make myself to the assignments. Teachers weren't looking over me. I had to do it in my room and do it on my own time and so it was kind of different but it was cooling away. 'cause i doubt self growth so well that's an interesting thing to think about because there's been a lot of discussion about the effect on students of this world of virtual learning and whether or not you know a certain subject can be effectively taught virtually and it of students will do well on the tests texas loves looking at its test scores but for you it sounds like you discovered something about yourself and you had some doubts about your level of independence. And whether you'd be able to stay focused on this but apparently you were. I do wonder though were there aspects of being virtual that were challenging for you that that made things a little bit more difficult than they otherwise would be very much so i kinda alone like isolated from everyone. I mean i would text my friends and call them. But it wasn't the same as like being in a school environment doing group projects online. It was very awkward with other people because we would do like group team meetings in like classes in. No one would talk in so it just felt isolated. And you said you're interested in theater. I have to imagine that was severely affected by the pandemic. This affected just about every art form possible. And we've talked a little bit before that you are looking to pursue this for the future you know as a career has this experience given you any pause or caution towards that at all. I sleep it really. Has i remember earlier this year. I was thinking of changing my career paths because oh so uncertain of what the industry would look like in everyone like going into it. How nervous we would all be. Because i remember talking to some fellow actors and they were like well. I don't know if i should do this anymore. Because of cova ahead. And we don't know the industry's gonna start back up again and what's gonna happen. I just was very nervous. But i realized that although it's scary and although the pandemic has set back the industry a lot i think i should try no matter what and pursue my dreams. You were talking before about being nervous about wearing masks and who was going to be wearing masks and of course. This whole pandemic has become a very divisive topic and there's all kinds of different attitudes towards what should and shouldn't be died. It's become very politically motivated. Are you invested in a lot of these conversations on these topics that explore things that go beyond the school that have bigger real world ramifications. I'm very invested in those conversations. I remember whenever for shutdown. I heard about the endemic. I was very nervous and it was like okay. What's right. And what's wrong and i remember. My grandma had a different perspective than me. And i would always like listen to her. Speak in all these things. But i always had something to stand up for and i do think it is important to do your car because i think not everyone should be vaccinated but it's very important to at least writer mask and what about your classmates. Are they engaged on the same topics or these things that you all discuss with. Each other is their disagreement. Even between you. And some of the the people you go to school with Yes actually especially since last year and even this year. There's been a lot of social media arguments that i've seen online and there's also been in faced arguments that i've seen people calling other people stupid or dumb or all these like mean things for having a different opinion but i also think it's important to look at the other perspectives in see what might be processing through their brain in They think is right and what you think is wrong. You should probably have an important discussion on and maybe you guys can agree on something. It seems like it's pretty common for younger generations to sometimes feel like they're maybe not being heard by the generations above them. You know the older generations tend to think. Oh i've gone through the hard times. I've got all this wisdom. I know things that you don't and they'll tend to discount what the generations below them are saying in discount some of the issues that they are passionate about and so from you as a young person in your generation. Are there ways that you feel like you could be heard in. Are there things that you wish people would pay attention to that. You are very passionate about in care a lot about yes. There's a lot of many important conversations. I especially had them with my family and i have very different political views and my cousins my aunts my grandma and as a member of the younger generation. I feel like they ignore my opinions. Because they think oh. She's on the media too much or oh she's too young. She doesn't understand but i do understand. I have done my research. So i feel like i've often been looked over because of my age but many important topics obviously krona virus. I think it's a very important topic very hot topic today. Black lives matter climate change. I mean that's happening. Rapidly in a somewhat. Family doesn't believe happening. Some thanksgiving arguments went on. That happened but yeah it's just important to have the conversations in maybe if you sit them down and talk to them and tell them to. Just listen as agenda That has worked a couple of times. And maybe they will end up understanding where you come from.

"As some of the upcoming missions doing experiments on astronauts and to Having a bioengineering background with directly applicable to that and I learned more and more about how to fly hardware in space and so then i moved to the space shuttle program and had responsibility for all types of payloads so not just Life sciences types of Experiments and then learn more about how we interface with the Space shuttle to fly Those experiments successfully and safely and then Begin planning and being responsible for entire shuttle missions as a flight manager and so having An engineering background allowed me to be able to expand into different areas but having The bio also because We fly humans. Space has been Very Important for me. As i continue my career and then from there i went into exploration and have been working as we've been building The orion spacecraft which. We'll be launching very soon. An unscrewed version As a test flight and then very soon putting humans on board as we start to artemis program which will allow us to move forward to sending humans to move to the moon and eventually to mars. You mentioned artists. I might as well go ahead and ask you And i'm not sure if you can answer this but Jeff bezos is Space company blue origin suing nasa over quote unlawful and improper evaluation of proposals during bids to land contracts for missions. Back to the moon spacex has already landed a contract. How do you anticipate that. This litigation will affect the artemis program moving forward. Oh right so as you said no. I really can't answer that. The the because because i don't i really don't know but so we're continuing to move on with All of the elements because artists is comprised of multiple elements the human landing system being very critical very critical component of it So you know we will Work through this particular protest and then Continue with our car architect king of the program so for now though i can share that you know we will do this. Crew test flight. Then we have to do a crude flight. And that flight Will take our humans To the vicinity of the moon and return them. And then the next flight after that is building up for having what we call the gateway Which is an orbital platform that will be near the moon from there. We will have our astronauts come up on the orion. They'll go to the gate way And then when the lander is ready the lander will also be at the gateway and then it will go down to the surface. So what we're doing right now is Continuing on with all of those efforts While we get this one particular part of the architecture worked out another thing at the johnson space center that we're responsible for is for our expiration Extravehicular activity suit so when we go outside the space station today to do spacewalks. the suit that the crew members are in that particular suit though it's been upgraded over the years. It's based on technology from the nineteen eighties. So we're actually Working right now to have the suit that we need for the surface of the moon and we will also have that upgraded technology for low earth orbit. So that's where the international space station is and will serve as Both the international space station as well as the lunar surface. And what is a current situation with with star liner. I know that it it had been too late as well. Do you think that that's delayed until next year. So star liner is one of the two capabilities that we have for launching our astronauts. Again from florida and so boeing We are planning to do a second orbital flight tests and that was not too and that was the test That we had at the launch pad for that particular launch where we had a delay do tone. Anomaly and so boeing is working to resolve the issues that they had with the propulsion system in the service module and once they get that resolved. Then we'll go forward with that flight test Right now we don't know when that's going to be because they're still trying to figure out what actually caused the problem and once they do that then we will find another launch opportunity. And i don't know what the opportunity is going to be right now because we need to figure out the problem. I i see. You've said that. Two of your priorities with nasa are successful missions of course having successful missions and working with the commercial space sector. I know that there's a a launch coming up in january with a company that's based in houston called axiom space. What does collaboration like that. Look look like yeah. So yes so. Excellence in our mission. So that's nasr's missions as well as partnering with others and helping them to be successful as well and so axiom. will be Doing what we call a private astronaut mission and they'll that particular mission will be the first where we have crew members that are being trained And they'll be launched from florida and they will go to the international space station so they'll be interacting with The government astronauts their own board the international space station right. Now today we started this week Training for that mission and those astronauts are here at the johnson space center and They're learning About the Systems for the international space station And the ro. They'll be training together as a unit They will have Some interfacing here on the ground with the government astronauts so that when they get on board they will be able to Successfully train and and support as one crew because they will be on board together so from a national standpoint We work with axiom to understand what their needs are They will be having Responsibility for training their crew members. They have responsibility for having. Let's say a habitation needs of their crew member so food that they need what clothing that they need but once they get on orbit these crew members are going to be living and working together for that particular mission is going to be eight mission so We do have to make sure that they're working and trained so that they can successfully Be on orbit together. A very interesting program is coming up at the johnson space center and that involves a habitat that simulates the challenges of a mission to mars. Tell me a little bit about that. Yeah so going to mars Is a a long journey and then Depending on the type of mission that we have You you may have an extended stay on the surface of mars and so this particular habitat is is A analog so for us that's Looking at something that's similar to what you're going to experience and to we're building a three d. printed habitat Because that's one of the concepts for how you We'd have a base on mars and So it's being three d. printed here at the johnson space center and we are soliciting For people that want to Be subjects Test subjects for this particular analog and so we'll be looking at behavioral changes. We know that you know when you go away for a very long time for Being in a confined space With the limited number of people. You'll have behavioral changes. They'll be physiological changes and one of the things that were Especially interested in is What impacts nutritional changes have and making sure that we understand that so we're able On the international space station we do six month. mission durations. Some of our missions have been one year In addition This will allow us to have more subjects test subjects that we can run Through this experimental analogue. Right here in the safe confines of home. So your appointment. As the first african american woman as director of the johnson space center is obviously meaningful as milestone for the space program. What is your vision of diversity for nasa. So my you know. My vision of diversity at nasa includes diversity in terms of of race of gender of Having all people be Include it Whether it's You if you have Any disabilities but that's my my vision. Is that everyone is able to come and bring All of them of themselves To to work And i think that it's important for us to not only have Those types of diversities but Having a different backgrounds For us you know. When we saw problems in space we have different disciplines that we use to solve those problems and technical disciplines that we use all those problems but we also have found That when we have our most innovative problem solve a combined sometimes using a business discipline To help with solving the the issues that we have at hand but having everyone that is available in this country or in this were all Feel and understand that They have Very valuable inputs to bring is very important and so We want to encourage More and more people to go into stoomville science technology engineering and math That's the basis of the work that we do here. But we have many types of jobs and so We encourage Everyone To apply to be a part of what we're doing at nasa and in the overall space community. That's new johnson. Space.
Ascension Island Telescope Tracks Fast-Moving Orbital Space Debris
"Island a tropical paradise halfway between brazil and is the home for a nasa telescope with a special mission. And in this case location is everything is innovation now. The nasa air force research laboratory on ascension island houses a telescope with a very special mission to track fast moving orbital space debris the orbital debris program office at nasa's johnson space center collects the data from this and several other ground based optical and radar telescopes across the world. Reliable software tools are then used to predict the risk debris might pose to spacecraft earth and the international space station with more than seven thousand metric tons and millions of individual pieces of space junk orbiting earth tracking the debris is essential because orbital debris moves much. Faster than a sniper's bullet. Even a small piece can destroy satellites or spacecraft on impact but the ascension island telescope has a unique feature a double horseshoe mount designed to track fast moving objects and the view from this telescope gives scientists is on what had been a global blind spot
NASA Is Lending A 3.9-billion-year-old Moon Rock To The Biden White House
"The request of president. Joe biden the lunar sample laboratory facility at nasa's johnson space center some monroe to the white house. This is innovation now bringing you stories behind the ideas that shaped our future. Triangular glass display case boasts photo glass sides than aluminum top and bottom and holds three hundred thirty two gram piece of the moon. The sample was returned to earth. And nineteen seventy two by the apollo. Seventeen astronauts ronald evans and moon walkers harrison schmitt. An eugene cernan. The last humans to set foot on the moon chipped from a large boulder located almost two miles from the lunar module. The sample surfaces contain tiny craters created as micrometeorites impacts that sandblasted the rock over millions of years the flat sides were created in the jc lab when slices of the rock were cut for scientific research. Now the moon rock has a place of honor in the oval office of the white house on loan to the current administration. It represents the accomplishments of an earlier generation and is a unique symbol of support for america's plans to return to lunar orbit and beyond
Moon samples to be studied
"Nine teams of scientists will continue the legacy of the apollo missions by studying pieces of the moon that have been carefully stored and untouched for nearly fifty years. These samples specially curated at nasa's johnson space center since they were brought to earth are an investment in the future one of the samples is still encased in the drive tube that was pounded into the lunar regular with during apollo seventeen the core not only preserves the rocks but also allow scientists in the lab to study the rock layers exactly as they existed on the moon. Other samples were frozen upon their return. None of the samples have ever been exposed to earth's atmosphere by studying these samples for the first time with today's more advanced and sophisticated technology. A new generation of scientists will advance our understanding of our lunar neighbor. Helping nasa prepare for our returned to the moon

"Okay real quickly because I want to get to the E V market because it's so important, obviously with it with the advent of tests, but I have to ask you. I read about you guys being a development partner with NASA that can't have. That was a long application process, man. She's gonna be a good talk about that. Yeah, we've been actually women work with NASA says the nineties, so we were on the Thebes coverage program were on the Mercury Messenger. Just you know, it's a 20 plus year relationship with NASA Johnson Space Center JPL. We working with Marshall? Um, name's pretty much all of the NASA centers. The most recent work we work with them is on battery, little more battery safety. So a lot of work without their HRC and Dr Walker over changes I see. S so like I said, you know our parts on the international space station to keep the astronauts left a battery safe. Well, we also are working a project with Marshall Space Center to be able to three d print a safe battery pack eventually on the moon. So the big push for me, you know that's announced, uh, going back to the moon. The arguments project Thieve Asian. Is that once we put, you know I infrastructure on the moon. You have a battery is to go bad. You don't want to shoot the whole thing back up there. You want to do space men, You know, space manufacturing, So our solution on it will be a cost savings and a lot of much faster turned turnaround time. So that's obviously very exciting that I think that that would have Implications. Not just for, you know for space apple, you know applications but also for two terrestrial applications. Michael, I know you committed test for one second. I want to keep you over because because they It's so interesting and be, uh, talking to coming back with us. But I want to talk about TV. So I'm gonna keep you here for another another few minutes here because Um, you know, it's interesting because you can't help but talk about these type of things, especially when you are in his game without talking about Maybe it's testes. And which brings it to TV. Which is what you want about. I like the assemble in space. And maybe I get it. I like how he was just so presumptive.

First of all, thanks for having me And thanks for putting the fund in the business shows is great, and we do thermal management. We've been doing that for space applications like for NASA for the aerospace industry for team has been doing that for last 30 years, so What you see on the website on the Mars rover. Our technology is on the Mars Rover 2020 perseverance on the way to Mars right now, I think land sometime in February on and we keep the laser and the sensors cool.

Uh, laptop batteries safe on it. We've been on think over 1000 different aerospace and defense projects. Our mission now is to take that technology that space proven qualified on Ben applying to the world about evey energy storage and new consumer electronic applications. So here's so here's my question for you and in the obvious question is this is it look at you know we've interviewed. Let's say we interviewed Steve Forbes and his he said, how you become successful. Steve was finding even fill it there. You mean you're in a business You're in a business where it's not a consumable business. You're dealing with aerospace and NASA. For example, how did you guys fare during covert? Because it seems to me and everything I've researched about you guys. He did just fine if not having a great year in 2020. Well, thanks. Um, no. At the beginning of 2020. We already hunger down the team. We weren't sure how the years going to turn out so we hunger down and we went back to our roots. Work with NASA Air Force different deal The organizations on got a lot of proposals in four contracts. So we came out 2020 to be OK on we finish our financing at the end of the year because their stock was getting more and more liquid in the market. We finished a million dollar financing. The last day of the year, which is which is almost like a Christmas came twice last year. Now we got the balance sheet. Gamble. Liquidity in the market way have more customer engagements. Now we're ready for hopefully, the bigger stage one of those little cars I just saw on your video. You want one of the cars itself? Yeah. Yeah, someone over. Hey, Michael blows our guest. He is the CEO of Cooler technology Kul. Are there publicly traded under that stock symbol, you could go to kul our technology dot com for the website.

Our mission now is to take that technology that space proven qualified on didn't apply to the world about evey energy storage and new consumer electronic applications. So here's so here's my question for you and in the obvious question is this Is it look at you know we've interviewed. Let's say we interviewed Steve Forbes and his, he said, How you become successful, Stevie was find a need and fill it. Are you? I mean, you're in a business. You're in a business where it's not a consumable business. You're dealing with aerospace and NASA. For example, How did you guys fare during covert? Because it seems to me and everything I've researched about you guys. You did just fine, if not having a great year in 2020. Well, thanks. Um, no. At the beginning of 2020. We already hunger down the team. We weren't sure how the years going to turn out so we hunger down and we went back to our roots. Work with NASA Air Force different deal The organizations on got a lot of proposals in four contracts, so we came out 2020 to be okay on Do we finish our financing at the end of the year because their stock was getting more and more liquid in the market. We finished that a million dollar financing the last day of the year, which is which is almost like a Christmas came twice last year. Now we got the balance sheet. We got more liquidity in the market way have more customer engagements. Now we're ready for hopefully, the bigger stage one of those little cars I just saw on your video. You want one of the cars itself? Yeah. Yeah, someone over. Hey, Michael knows our guest. He is the CEO of cooler technology Kul. Are there publicly traded under that stock symbol, you could go to kul our technology dot com for the website. Okay real quickly because I want to get to the E V market because it's so important, obviously with it with the advent of tests, But I have to ask you. I read about you guys being a development partner with NASA that can't have. That was a long application process. Match is gonna be a good talk about that. Yeah, we've been actually with me Work with NASA says the nineties, so we were on the Thebes Discovery program were on the Mercury Messenger just you know, it's a 20 plus year relationship with NASA Johnson Space Center JPL. We working with Marshall? Um, name's pretty much all the NASA centers. The most recent work. We work with them is on battery, little more battery safety. So a lot of work without their HRC and Dr Walker over th E S. C. S so like I said, you know our parts on the international space station to keep the astronauts left a battery safe. Well, we also are working a project with Marshall Space Center to be able to three d print a safe battery pack eventually on the moon. So the big push for me, you know that's announced going back to the moon. The arguments project Thieve Asian. Is that once we put, you know I, uh, infrastructure on the moon. You have a battery is to go bad. You don't want to shoot the whole thing back up there. You want to do space men, You know, space manufacturing, So our solution on it will be a cost savings and a lot of much faster turned turnaround time. So that's obviously very exciting that I think that that would have a Implications. Not just for, you know for space apple, you know applications but also for two terrestrial applications. Michael, I know you committed test for one second. I want to keep you over because because they It's so interesting and be, uh, talking to coming back with us. But I want to talk about TV. So I'm gonna keep you here for another another few minutes here because Um, you know, it's interesting because you can't help but talk about these type of things, especially when you are in his game without talking about Maybe it's testing and which brings it to TV.

What do you want to know that you don't know now about volcanoes or or the makeup of our planet or other planets? First of all, send some mystery, Mr Venus, but really the heart of what I would love to do. This is to to create models and systems that can tell us about when a volcano is going to erupt. And give us predictive capabilities. You know, something that can really make an impact in the world, I think and and it's it warms my heart when there's part of my research that can really have a direct impact on other people on the planet.

Water, Water, Every Where And Now Scientists Know Where It Came From
"Water is everywhere on Earth the clouds, the rain, the oceans and rivers even our own bodies were all that water originally came from is a bit of a mystery NPR's Nell. Greenfieldboyce reports that scientists may have found the answer inside some rare meteorites the earth formed four and a half billion years ago, compared to other planets in emerged pretty close to the sun there hot temperatures would mean, no water ice no ice to join with the swirling bits of rock and dust that we're running into each other and building up our young planet. That's. A. We do not know exactly were the what on Earth from why we need to find a source of water on Earth Laurette Peony works at a French research lab called CRP PG. She says that source of water could have been farther out in the solar system like maybe icy comments or water rich asteroids that hit the newly formed earth and watered it. This has long been the prevailing view to explain the the of the ocean and of the water engine on she wondered though if water could have been there at the start Sushi and. Some colleagues recently took a close look at a rare kind of meteorite. It doesn't look like anything special. It's like a gray rock, but it's also thought to have formed near the sun and is the same kind of primordial stuff that glommed together to create our planet and it turns out it contains plenty of hydrogen that's an indicator of its ability to contribute water to a planetary mix. In fact, if you built a planet out of this material, you'd have at least several oceans worth of water these findings described in the journal Science made on. Pay Liaise feel really happy I was happy because it makes it nice and simple. She's a planetary scientist at NASA's Johnson. Space Center in Houston Texas who wasn't part of the research team she says this old idea that Earth's water came from the outer solar system would have required something unusual like Jupiter having a little trip through the inner solar system to send water rich asteroids headed our way. So here we just don't need Jupiter. We're told me to do anything weird. We're just grabbed the material that was their form and that's what who are. Still, she says, even if most of the water was there at the beginning comets and such probably did deliver some of Earth's water later on Nell Greenfieldboyce NPR news.

What's the Buzz on Alcohol in Space?

A new breakthrough in space technology was uncorked uncorked especially designed bottle that will make it possible to drink champagne in the microgravity environment of space. The bottle contains two chambers one for the Champagne and the other for valve that uses the carbon dioxide in the champagne to eject foamy little alcohol spheres which can then be scooped into long stemmed glasses for sipping and once inside the mouth the spheres turn back hawala into liquid champagne this space champagne as the agency France Press reported is envisioned as an Amenity for space tourists who someday maybe taking pleasure trips with private spaceflight operators. If future recreational astronauts astronauts do get the chance to savor some of the bubbly it won't be the first time that alcohol has been consumed in space the practice goes back to the early days of the Soviet space program when the USSR's doctors reportedly said cosmonauts into orbit with rations of Cognac one former cosmonaut told NBC News. We used it to stimulate our immune system and on the whole to keep our organizations intone later on cosmonauts were given a liquor containing Ginseng a root. That's a traditional herbal remedy for improving energy and concentration NASA in contrast generally has prohibited astronauts from drinking not just in space but also within sixteen hours of a space launch but the agency has wavered from its teetotalling stance at times. They're reportedly was a plan for example to allow the Apollo eight crew to drink a small mall ration of Brandy to go with their Christmas meal of Dehydrated Bacon Cubes in Turkey gravy stuffing but commander Frank Borman decided that they should forego the alcohol on the Apollo Eleven trip to the moon in nineteen sixty nine astronaut Buzz Aldrin did open a small plastic container of wine it was almost certainly the first food or drink consumed during the trip but it was so that he a Presbyterian church elder could take communion according to NBC News as former NASA food fellow burs Charles T borland and in Gregory elva detail in their book the Astronauts Cookbook Tales Recipes and more nothing considered providing astronauts on the Skylab mission in the nineteen seventies with Sherry packaged inflexible plastic pouches with built in drinking tubes but the idea was nixed for fear of negative publicity and because apparently the beverage although perfectly perfectly palatable on the ground fill the cabin with an intensely nauseating smell on a test flight that approximated low gravity with freefall in nineteen eighty-five five and that's our report titled Living Loft Human Requirements for extended spaceflight contemplated the pros and cons of drinking on space flights and in future settlements on the moon or other planets it noted it is unlikely that alcohol is a social beverage will find its way into space at least until relatively large and stable settlements are established published alcohol as a recreational drug may be keenly missed by space travelers since there is evidence that alcohol plays an important social role in exotic environments generally though today's space travelers have to wait until they get back to earth before they have a drink because alcohols chemical volatility that is its tendency to vaporize brise astronauts aren't allowed to have it on the International Space Station. We spoke by email with Daniel g hyo a spokesman at NASA's Johnson Space Center. He said that this ban is due to quote the negative effects that alcohol can have on the water recovery system which draws in water from a number of sources including cabin condensation patia the bed applies not just beverages but to any sort of product containing alcohol such as aftershave or a mouthwash. There's another tricky issue about drinking in space ace. Not much is known about the effect of alcohol consumption on the human body in these space environment which already is known to alter everything from the immune system to hand eye coordination and no official studies have been done so we really don't know whether the space environment would intensify the intoxicating effect of alcohol or how an orbital hangover would compare to to one that results from a bender on earth a while. We don't have much science on alcohol and space for what it's worth. There has been research on the effects of alcohol consumption at high altitudes on earth in nineteen eighty eight study for example. Some male subjects drink a quantity of one hundred per vodka adjusted to their weight for one hundred and seventy five. I Pat Man. That's about seventy nine kilos. It was about four shots and then they spent the day simulated twelve thousand five hundred foot elevation environment. That's about thirty eight hundred meters. They were then compared to other subjects who didn't drink and or who stayed at sea level the drinkers experienced impaired performance on a battery of tasks with older subjects performing worse than younger ones but there wasn't a significant difference between drinkers at high altitudes and those who stayed on the ground although not much alcohol has been consumed in space researchers are studying the creation of it on the ISS Scotch Maker Art Beg said samples of Booze and would up to study how whiskey might aged differently in space and Budweiser's sent along batches of barley seeds a scientific effort to understand the effects of microgravity on beer ingredients.

But you know, I think we all have sort of a unique story not everyone is the same so Jonathan where did you come from? Sure. So so my journey with NASA began actually whenever I was in high school. I went to a local high school in the Houston area and one of the opportunities that was available was like a high school internship with NASA were I my senior year of high school. I went to school for the morning and then for four hours in the afternoon, I actually came to GNC to to support the mission out here. And so it was a really great experience. After that. I actually ended up moving into the college version of that program. And then from there applied to the pathways internship program. And was fortunately accepted for that. And tried out a few different organizations during that stint and. Ultimately was given a fulltime offer for employment upon graduation from my undergrad degree. So it's been a really really cool were really cool road. The the pipeline of the student programs has been really exceptional as well for me. And and that's what's been really kind of cool seeing that that is something that continues to this day with the outreach programs that NASA Johnson Space Center offers to the country really helps us in sourcing an applicant pool that that builds in a group that's ready to do the mission.

"Mark lean bay camp show on David van can't that is Scott Robbins Audi. Hi there. This is kind of a sad story. But it's a well, good advice. If you if you have some symptoms if you're feeling ill. Go get yourself checked out because it can't hurt. Right, right. This is a nurse in the UK shantelle Smits. She has been diagnosed with a brain tumor on brain stem goof now, she's a nurse again. She works, and she cares for patients with brain tumors. She's twenty two years old now she started suffering some minor symptoms like headaches and her first year as a nursing student in two thousand fourteen those headaches got progressively worse to the point where she was taking four and four Tylenol a day trying to combat the headaches that she was getting and then she would start to feel other symptoms that she described it in the New York Post. It felt like rain was falling on the on one side of her face, and she had heard about these symptoms. But she'd also heard that a lot of times people, especially new in the medical field can start to feel some of the symptoms that they tell patients about you have that you know, you you start to self diagnose your real problem for especially younger people in the medical field. So she thought it was just that then one day. She's at the hospital where she works every day. And she sees a poster. This is February of last year. She was reading a poster in the hospital wall was seeing the signs and symptoms of brain tumor brain tumors in young people, and then she realized what might be wrong with her. She says hang on a minute, headaches, constant fatigue. Occasional visual impairments. I have all of those. Maybe I should go to a doctor just in case she did. And they found a mass on a brain stem. Wow. That's in a position that unfortunately, can't be biopsy or taken out or anything. They don't know if it's cancerous tumor is large. She asked the doctor how big, but he just said, you don't need to know. She's had a bunch of more scans. It's monitored every three months, and so the good news is that it stable not currently growing the bad news, though is because of its position on her brain stem. It can't be biopsy. So she's still taking medications now to manage the symptoms and watch and wait policy when it comes to future treatment. So the only way that these types of tumors can be managed is with brain scans every three months brain scans every three months. That's what she's going through. Now. It's funny. How people in the medical community will sometimes wait themselves to see a doctor or to see someone else. I guess I'm fine. I can people ask me all the time. Did you know the diving symptoms that I was going to have a massive heart attack? Not really I didn't think I did. It was just tingling in my fingers. But I also realized to later up on later reflection on it that I was winded doing certain things, but I smoked that's just part of. And they just goes with it. But that wasn't that was part of the of the symptom. And if you go to web MD think you got everything. Yeah. That's the other side. Can't go to that. If you think there's something wrong, go to a doctor. Yeah. You can do that. That's better than the alternatives. I go on web MD. And I swear I've got everything. Right. I think I have hysterical pregnancy. Right. Exactly. I don't think that's possible rickets and how did that happen? Yeah. They do say though, doctors make their own make the worst patient. I would agree with that. Yeah. That's it. So that's that's really. Hopefully, it won't grow anymore and she can live with somewhat normal life anyway. And hopefully, a reminder that you know. Yeah. No kidding. Can't hurt. I remember man when you were telling me that after you got out of the hospital, and we were asking, you know, did you notice any symptoms, and he said the tingling my fingers scared the crap out of me because a lot of times in the morning. I'll wake up and there's tingling in my fingertips. I'm also aside sleep, right? Exactly. I I'll get my Dexter the cockeyed cat who likes to snuggle up. Right. So my arm is in a weird position. It's just asleep. Scared. The daylights out of me. Well, yeah. I mean, that's I mean, I've sold a lot of treadmill examinations. I mean, you know, I have that got me to quit smoking. Yeah. So I mean, that's, but that's what you don't know. And that's the that's the downside of women because I've had everything that must be shingles. What it is. I'll look on web MD. I'll do that's all it is. Yeah, here's a fun story from Newsweek. A Dutch astronaut has described how he accidentally contacted American emergency services on nine one one while he was in. Orbit above the earth. What Andre Kuypers is his name described the experience while speaking on a radio program about his missions and communications between the earth satellites and astronauts orbiting earth and Kuyper explained that he was trying to contact NASA Johnson Space Center in Houston. He missed one number and accidentally called US emergency services. He said that to get to the center in Houston orbiting astronauts have to dial nine for an outside line. Followed by followed by zero one one for an international line. But while floating around in space, it was a little bit trickier. He said been dialing a phone on the earth. He said I made a mistake and the next day. I got an Email message. Did you call nine one one is everything? Okay. You know, we have other ways to contact if you're in trouble. Take the EMT's to get there. I think they're still on the waiver right there. Yeah. The the local EMT's in Houston are still developing. That's what they say. I just find it weird. I can't even call my cell phone carrier provider from this studio. I can't get the signal. No. He's got a straight shot to the satellites. Wow, man. But this did set up a set off at the time. Security alert at the Houston center with emergency staff checking the room where the space station's line connected to earth. And then he joked around saying I was a little disappointed that they didn't come up. But this is a guy who's completed two space missions, totaling two hundred and three days. And he says, it's surprisingly easy to communicate with the earth while on this space station in orbit said, astronauts can reach terrestrial phone lines via satellite around seventy percent of the time because he just had that straight shot essentially said, you know, you'd have to deal with technical hurdles while trying to say Hello to friends on the ground. Like, there's a big time delay that can make it difficult to have a good conversation. Some people would hang up because they thought I didn't say anything so later on. I started to talk as soon as I dialed the last number. You gotta try to account for the right? Yeah. That might happen there who knew though, you can call nine one one from space. You can get a signal in space. But it does make sense, right? It should make do like streaming bird box on his vice bouncing around in space. That's awesome. Now, if he could do that would be a little pissed off because you know, I was in a hotel room trying to watch net flicks. And I kept getting the buffering going. Oh, yeah. Sorry. Boards. Whatever free wifi at the hotel. Anyway, we've got some more news to get to we got the shutdown debacle as it's being called now on CNN. The clock by the way, they stopped doing. No, not on right now is not on because we got a lot of other things. They're talking about both being take our.
