Security operations centers: a first principle idea.
"The idea of operations centers has been around seemingly forever friedrich limb in his a history of western technology suggests that the concept goes back as far as five thousand bc amazing anytime an organization grows big enough either in terms of function or one. Small team can't do everything. Leaders have built these centers to men's the workflow and status of the various groups into coordinate. If you fast forward to the early days of the technological revolution we started seeing organizations. That began looking like a modern day sark. But we're quite there yet. The classic example is how nasa managed space missions starting way back in nineteen fifty eight now for those. Who don't know me. I'ma space geek specifically. I love everything about the space race between the russians and the americans during the nineteen sixties in fact as a side note the washington post lillian cunningham produced a thirteen episode podcasts. About that very thing last year it is called moon rise and i highly recommended. But did you know that when neil armstrong and buzz aldrin landed on the moon in nineteen sixty nine that the russians had a remote controlled spacecraft up there at the same time. I didn't know that. Until i listen to the moon rise podcasts. The russians crashed into a moon mountain as armstrong and aldrin. We're flying back to the lunar module so maybe that is why the russians don't advertise that much. But i digress. One of my favorite space movies is paolo. Thirteen directed by ron howard. And one of the things. I love about that. Movie is how it depicts the energy and sense of purpose of an operation center. Here's the actor. Ed harris in a virtuoso performance playing gene kranz the real life nasa flight director delegating tasks his crew of operational teams on what they need to do to get apollo thirteen at home. And the meantime whenever frozen command module to power it up another but the re entry batteries. We've been tried before we've never even stimulated it before gene. We're going to have to figure it out. i want people in our simulators working reentry scenarios. I want you guys to find. Every engineer designed ever switch every circuit transistor and every lightbulb. It's up there then. I want you to talk to the guy. Knee assembly line actually built the thing. Find out how to squeeze every aunt at both of these goddamn machines. I want this mark all the way back to earth with time to spare never lost an american in space where surest not gonna lose one on my watch. Failure is not an option. If that doesn't bring chills down your spine you might be dead. I'm just saying when telephone network started appearing in the early nineteen twenty s phone companies like eighteen bill traffic control bureaus to handle long distance traffic issues by the early nineteen sixties. At and t. Handled most telephone switching through mechanical devices and build a network control center or noc to manage it. At and t. Historians consider this to be the first knock ever built by nineteen seventy seven bell systems had built the first national knock in bedminster new jersey which looked a lot like modern knocks. Today there wasn't much security yet but if there was any knock operators were doing it in the us intelligence community the nineteen sixties were fraud with international incidents like the cuban missile crisis of nineteen sixty to the arab israeli six day war in nineteen sixty seven the us pueblo capture and nineteen sixty eight the prague spring crisis and czechoslovakia also nineteen sixty eight in the one. Twenty-one shootdown crisis in one thousand nine hundred sixty nine the. nsa decided that. They needed an operation center to manage their efforts. Across a wide swatch of international activity. Based on the freedom of information request. The nsa released a document in two thousand seven that described the formation of the first national cigarette operations center or insomniac in one thousand nine hundred seventy three and according to charles berlin. I hit him on lincoln and the answer me. He's a former in sock director. The innocent kept adding more responsibility to over time. He said that it's secret. Sauce was when the nsa decided to pair offense or cigarette defense or comsec in the same place. Eventually they replaced the word singing in the title with security. In other words it became the national security operations center. Berlin said that when cyber came along years later the toll of michigan came too big to keep in the in sock in the. Nsa created the national cyber threat operations center or the in talk to deal with it. But with the addition of the concept mission these operations centers started to lean toward defensive security on the government side and in the aftermath of the morris worm which was the first destructive internet worm
First Flight With Mike Manseca
"Tell us about how you started. First flight dot org because this is really obviously. You've you've been to kitty hawk. Many times Tell us what your first time going there. Well my first time was. I couldn't even tell you how old it was as a kid and it actually was with my dad the outer banks always ended up being a place we would go for vacations. I like for instance when i graduated from high school. Joe double hills is where we went for our Graduation party week. Whatever you wanna call it But i've been there before and my family. And i now go actually. I live in richmond. Virginia right now uh-huh even though i'm the head of an organization is down in kitty hawk north carolina but For probably about the last twenty years. We've gone every august for for summer vacation. 'cause we discovered as vacation place all those years ago and we just love. It can't think of a better place to go on vacation so we still do it now when you were a kid and you went there did the significance of the location of the you realize the significance of the location or was it just a a neat place to go for vacation. No no i completely did and much chagrin the rest of my family. They didn't look at me. Like how many times can you go to the same place you know what changes nothing changes. But i. i don't care. It's like a pilgrimage to go to the wright brothers national memorial to go to the park to see where that first powered flight happened and i'm a fanatic about it since i was a kid and when two thousand and three came around and i knew it was going to be one hundredth anniversary of flight trying to figure out. How am i going to get. I'm gonna get down there. Because i had a job. It's in december and then as it turns out my wife said. Hey i put for your birthday put together a trip for you and your dad to go down and spend a couple of days at kitty hawk and be there on the seventeenth and she'd actually only set up for a couple of days and my dad said well. This is wonderful but if we're going to go we might as well go for the whole time. And i think it was a five day celebration so worked it all out. I begged my boss to please have a couple of extra days off and We were there for all the days of celebration. And i have to tell you there was nothing never been anything like it. I don't know if i don't know if you've ever been to any of the celebrations but that one and of course was worldwide as far as the publicity for it but i can't remember how many people they said were there but the thing about it is i saw every kind of playing you can think of especially military plane fly over during those days. 'cause there was an air show every day and let's see also saw a lot of famous aviation people so the great thing was being able to see. Neil armstrong john glenn bob who hoover patty wag staff any number of people who were being honored that week And then on the actual seventeenth john travolta introduce president george w bush and he made a speech on the seventeenth of course out of all those days. Which day was the ugly rainy day. Yes it was the seventeenth. It was cold. It was rainy The attempt to do the flight at ten thirty five did not go off like it was supposed to. But i was so glad that i was there so now. I'm just curious. And i don't know the answer to this question. The wright brothers choose that location because they were building the airplane in dayton. Is that correct. That is correct. Actually wilbur wrote to the national weather service. And said hey. We're looking for replace. That has a lot of wind and his isolated and they could do their experiments in in private. Kitty hawk was a bonus because all the sand dunes. Which makes it a lot easier if you have an accident while you're trying to fly instead of trying to land on hard ground Which is essentially what they had in ohio flat hard ground right so they had gotten a number of different places they could try and they went ahead and wrote to the postmaster down in kittyhawk in he basically said hey. If you come down here. We'll do everything we can to help you find a pleasant group of people and we look forward to it so they basically took them up on that offer. So now when did you. Did you start the first flight organization. No no no under current president but the first flight organization or now you got me saying it's the first flight society actually started in nineteen twenty seven as the kill devil hills memorial creation. I hope i said that right. It's changed names a few times but yes Nine thousand twenty seven kill devil hills memorial association basically what it was was a group of about forty six businessmen put together by a newspaper publisher named W sunders who said hey. Let's let's this an important place. Let's get a memorial built. You know and this is something that would be seeing nationwide and would also you know side benefit is would be reason for people to come and visit each daughter bax back. At that time there was no bridge over to the outer banks from the mainland. You had to take a boat a really. Oh yeah you know. And that was the same. As in the time of the wright brothers. They had to take boats with crates of all their parts for their their planes and it was quite the trip and and even the first when they were building the memorial and people were coming down and they were dedicating. It was a heck of a trip train rides boat rides. You know wasn't like let's just get on a plane. Fly there because even at that time it was pretty it was just. There wasn't a lot of people just going to go up and

What Moon Landing?
"In the nineteen sixties, two things were happening more things are happening to. One it just two things. disclaimer were bottle of wine in the first one is the Cold War, which was basically between the US and the US are that started after the end of World War Two and nineteen, forty eight and lasted until nineteen ninety-one notice how I know when World War Two was. Throwing shade at the orange. I've had wine I'm a little snarky year. Then I'm not upset the way. The second thing was happening was the Vietnam War, which lasted between nineteen, fifty, five, and nineteen, seventy five. I did not think that was when on. Okay. But seriously I didn't realize the lasted that long either I thought it started like late late. Late mid to late sixties and went into the seventies. Yeah. Holy moly history is important because not only does it give us context as to why things happens, but it also serves as a blueprint showing what not to do if anyone literally anyone decided to pay attention in history class but whatever Got I. Him. So I'm fine. So in the nineteen sixties, the US was dealing with two things one they're trying to get the upper hand in and the other they're trying to distract the public from. Does that make sense had wine? Yes. Okay. Basically, it was a perfect time for the US government to distract everybody Hooker Luna verse. Where you're mass please. And this is why they decided to fake the moon landing. Where's the wind. please. Oh happy day. This explain why it started drinking. I'm so happy right now just help it off girl you're in need it I wanna make sure Rebecca some two but no, I don't just doing with to me this is a subject but I chose up my own free will thank you so much. This is going to be amazing. Okay. But why why would we do this? The US was currently racing the USSR to be the first to the moon and the fastest way to do that would be to fake it's. Kinda like when you're never mind. There it is. Oh, we made it two minutes. That's where we learned it from. The Moon and Do to the bad press the Vietnam War Gotten General the moon landing would serve as the. Distraction at the time luckily in this day and age that only have hundreds of people been able to see through the thin veil that is as opposed moon landing but have also been able to poke holes and this historical events. Can we make sure that you know take this is poured slash s please. You can't tell that from my voice I can I only sound this way when it's bullying? Sixties radio. Broadcaster Boys. Here for all of it. So now we're going to dive into reasons why are evidence as to why the moon landing did not happen? Okay. GimMe all of it I is there's no wind on the moon correct in the flag was waving. Yep that's pretty much where we're going. Imagine this iconic scene, the year is nineteen sixty nine. Neil. Armstrong. Neil. Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin are on the face of this lunar body preparing especially made us flag plant on the moon as they're securing the flag in a never ending show of colonization Oh my God something curious happens the flag starts waving in the winds, which is weird because there is no wind on the moon. The Moon essentially does not have an atmosphere meaning. There is nothing to cause old glory to way proudly in a patriotic breeze. That's
Amy Spowart, Head Of The National Aviation Hall Of Fame
"Many years especially when right field was more impactful when the foundations of today's age were taking off so much research with here at Afrl, and there's all kinds of research and aerospace research places that are here. It made a lot of sense Scott Crossfield even said to me once amy, you're not a pilot unless you through right field everybody who's anybody flies through right field, and of course, you know in the early days, there were Ayla celebrity who always came on China and it was John Wayne and Jimmy Stewart. Who's who I remember? My first enshrinement in nineteen ninety, nine Ted Williams came at Joe Foss. We've had John Travolta Dennis, quaid miles, O'Brien all been and sees it the hall of fame event but I would say following the economic downturn of two thousand nine and companies started to pull out of the Dayton area. It was harder to get that kind of support. So while the city of Dayton wholeheartedly loves having the hall of fame here we also Need people who can sponsor because we receive no federal state or local funding at all whatsoever. So we have to depend on aerospace aviation companies industry to support US and in Trimbe it was a big help us getting brand recognition. It's never been moneymaker. It's part of our mission to memorialize. So we need people to support our education and support are learning center through sponsorship. So what we decided to do in two thousand seventeen is actually take quote unquote. Show on the road, the Oscar night of aviation left Dayton and we went to Dallas first, and then we went to DC in twenty, eighteen and Denver and twenty nineteen than we were supposed to have a homecoming here in twenty twenty. But of course, the this year has been postponed until two thousand, twenty one we're working on getting is back to the National Aviation Hall of fame in Dayton use an abbreviation there a F- on the Air Force research. Lab. So. Here Wright Patterson Air Force Base. Employees. I think it's twenty to thirty thousand people in. Southwest Ohio, and only about less than half of those are active military. So there's a lot of research scientists here, and that's where the United States air force does all their most important research everything from what they're going to build aircraft out of to what their munitions do and Jet Propulsion. It's all located here in Dayton at Wright Patterson Air Force Base. Still is very much a hub of aerospace activity. especially from the military and. Speaking of which there are signs that the or the appeal of aerospace is not resonating with the youngest generation do you sense that and if so is the hall responding in some way? It's hard because it's just like covert. The company's nonprofits that survive cove. It are the ones who are going to adapt and react to the situation with kids with this next generation they're not so much looking up lake weeded or the generation before me did Neil Armstrong stood in one place and what's fair to the sky and we all know the Wright brothers played with a little plastic helicopter type thing that inspired them. So we need to appeal to kids in. What interest them? So that might be if they're interested in the environment, they WANNA make less noise from aircraft. They want less jet fumes from cargo plane. That kind of thing we have to say, why not you? Why don't you figure that out? It makes me think of enshrining clap Myra who wanted a safer jet plane. So he thought about it and thought about it and he Allen Clapp mark came up with this idea of putting a parachute on the top of. A plane and everyone's like that's not gonNA work except the vision jet is pretty remarkable. So what we need to do is have kids interact or read about or they have to know who Bill Mayer is, and it isn't just Alan Shepherd. It isn't just the astronauts it isn't just the inventors it's all the Chinese and they can inspire kids more than just an aviation. It could be designed it to be dreamers that could be artists, but if we all have. Heroes. That's what gets kids going and if we give them a problem like make less noisy aircraft or might be a kid who's a Gamer and they sit on the computer all day, they're actually going to be fantastic drone pilots. We just have to recognize what they're doing and adapt to it.
"A mistake that many photographers make as they make a go at being a professional photographer. is believing that being a generalist is an advantage. Saying that you can photograph, anything doesn't leave impression with a client that you think it should make. Secondly. It leaves the photographer to be defined by what they're hired to do. Rather than by the work that they have a passion for. You may achieve financial success. But. It may not be the type of photography. Sings to your heart Alan Clarke had a clear idea of the kind photographer. He wanted to be and the kinds of photographs you wanted to make. Based in Nashville Tennessee his desire to be a photographer in the music. Industry could have led him to photograph. Country Music Stars. But. He didn't want his physical address to pigeonhole his photography or his aspirations. so He created his own path as a commercial editorial photographer resulting in a career that has allowed him to photograph the likes of Sir George Martin even. Hawk Bob Newhart and two former presidents. I hope this conversation demonstrates the importance of defining who you WanNa be and who you are as a photographer. This is about an annex and welcome back to the candidate frame. Are, I. Alan Welcome to the show. Thank you glad to be here so glad to get Nice Mike. Voice this should be. This is gonNA sound good? Stuff. You ever watched thirty rock now know. Alec, Baldwin and Will Arnett, both have amazing voices, and so they played that up a lot, and that's to our strengths as well so they had like a sexy voice off at one point. Close to each other, and be like I can do that and then they to be like. Yes, you can this. Man Gets. Today's the record this. The astronauts took off on the capsule and the rocket today and I know you're thinking. What you're talking about. You're saying. Neil. Armstrong! Yeah, it's a replica of his suit over a Hoodie. So Yeah I've completely nerd out today you've you've photographed a bunch of the of the suits. But where did the best nation begin? I think like most of us. You think of these images and you dream when you're a child like I was I wanted to be. An oceanographer wanted to be part of the cousteau. Society I wanted to be an astronaut and. Set in my second third grade class looked out the window and reflected on every port report card ever had. Would get these notes of our report cards to be like a you unsatisfactory. He just doesn't pay attention. He looks out the window constantly. That's what I got. Unsatisfactory what they had on the report Carsberg. Takes. A dreamer looks like when they're little. We have the album are recordings of the Apollo flight at my house, growing up so double album and it had pictures of the flight and I remember. I didn't think I really understood exactly what I was listening to just Kinda of thought, it will couple. At record on and just listened to it and look at looking at the pictures. I think it's probably still in my house somewhere. Let even though I don't have a record player anywhere near, let's. I, don't know I'm not one of those. Guys. Are. You saying you're not a hipster? Is that what you're saying? I think that by a couple of decades man I duNno, sometimes. My wife tells me their original hipster. Looking into some of this I'm like I. Don't know, but then I look at myself. When I do that. A you still have a record player and listen to things and she may be right. Working the idea that you want it to be able to photograph the spaces issue. Number of them have and you know I guess the idea came along Huntsville. Space and rocket center is only two and a half hours from Nashville so. have been going down there since I was a kid. My parents took me when I was little, and it just never stopped and something like a tradition. Take took my children there and. I've had photo shoots. Their showed up multiple times I. Don't think they. Enough to where they're sick of me, but it's pretty close. And just kept going there and going there, but then when I would do like photo shoots across. You know our great country. I would go to in in Boston there's A. Museum for JFK and I've been there and just seeing Johnson, space center in Houston of course, and all the different spots every time I get a chance I'll go and visit and just take my camera with me when I go, and my whole point is to just record these to record them like I would do it. Not like a tourist would try to actually light it really well, and sometimes you get permission to do these things, and sometimes you don't. But most of these things are on public display, and were American citizens, so we can kind of like just Bassani and people don't know this, but all all the museums in DC are all. All free to American citizens, because that's part of our taxes, and that's what it goes towards, and so you can kind of do anything you and requests, these types of things, so it started years ago through a space and rocket center, which was a privately funded thing, and it was on the redstone arsenal, the right next to the arsenal base course Verner von Braun worked out of Huntsville Developing Saturn five, and so it's steed like a weird thing like an Alabama of all places steeped in this rocket tradition. You know that know people just don't know about and they kind of had them. They're just to kind of hide them a little bit. Kept them safe there instead of putting them in a big city like DC or New York, but that's when the fascination started from as from a very early age, just repeatedly going down there and shooting these things and You know on crappier cameras when I was little like instamatic disclaimer. Even growing up as a for NYKANEN.

Equifax hit with $700 million fine for data breach, but is it enough? (The Daily Charge, 7/22/2019)
"<music> today on the daily charge Equifax hot water marble phase four the anniversary of Apollo Eleven and more drama good morning welcome to see that say we charge Monday July I twenty second I'm offering. Let's take a look at today's headlines. Equifax may pay up to seven hundred million dollars as a result of a massive twenty seventeen data breach exposed the date of more than a hundred forty seven million Americans Alfred. What does this mean essentially? If you were affected by the breach you're eligible for up to twenty thousand dollars and reimbursement from equifax over this now that is much easier said than done right basically have to approved that you were affected by one of these breaches and it's not like when your social security numbers stolen. It's not like that person will contact you the hey by the way I stole this from McAfee right so that is the big question right like they put they've set aside about three hundred million dollars to to pay up to consumers. But how do you even know if you qualify yeah so at a press conference earlier today. The representative from director actually of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau had mentioned that if you were affected by identity theft or anything like that and we're dealing with this breach. You're eligible for this like so if your identity was stolen after this breach had happened with the same data that was taken. You're pretty much eligible for it. You'RE GONNA get some money but you know the full twenty thousand dollars. You really have to prove that. Ah that it affected you that much so it's not only identity theft so you know money that you spend on attorneys that you spend on accounts to deal with this what you did what if you paid for credit monitoring that kind of thing and the hours that you dealt with it to you can go up to twenty twenty five dollars per hour for up to twenty hours you know from from the settlement what happens if you you know you weren't affected right away right like the information wasn't used against you until like a year later two years later yeah so I think think they kept it in and broad terms because of that they specifically said if you were affected after this breach happened so if you were affected by identity theft or anything like that after July twenty seventeen which is when they were hacked and then they announce it in September though but they're going by the one that had happened date okay and then the also has some rules and changes that equifax the fall to what's going on with them yeah so equifax along with paying up we'll whoa now also have to improve it security standards. They're going to have to do a yearly review of their own security standards and then also every two years have to have a third party review to make sure that you know it is doing what they say that they're doing because that's how this breach really happened even in the first place right. They said that they were warned about a vulnerability. In March they told their staff to patch it they didn't and they only learned about it after they realized they had been hacked right this as far as this is totally preventable yes all right next up marvel loaded phase four schedule including confirming black widow eternal Shanxi sequels a doctor strange and thorny blade reboot that that is a huge amount not that doesn't mention the Disney plus shows. Is there anything any product in particular you excited about. No I don't care about any of these. I don't know I guess it's cool that you know there's a lot more diversity and more representation with marvel movies. I just these like none of these superheroes really click with me. I know you can't do another ironman manner Captain America or anything like that but to be fair that was also the set of superheroes that started out this phase you know marvel had really sold the rights all of the heavy hitters and they weren't they do what they had and they built you know what they did with like infinity the war and all that right so it was very cool. Maybe they'll do a good job of all these well interestingly enough though like the heavy hitters they just got from Fox right x-men fantastic four barely got a meant yeah and and we didn't even get any information on a sequel a little Black Panther or go use the galaxy. These are two big franchises that people are interested in they really kind of pushed refocused on these new projects and we don't know as much about because they're definitely like probably because all those big names can generate their own press and they don't need it constitutes plus. There's also a disease that coming up next month so maybe a little tease more information then lastly Saturday Mark The fiftieth anniversary of the poll of moon landing our own Jackson Ryan takes a look at the various missions going on now from China to Israel as wasn't her own goal to get back to the moon by twenty twenty-five it is kind of interesting that like this was huge the captured America's attach imagination for a decade and then just abruptly ended in the seventies. We haven't really gone back yeah. I saw a study actually that looked at. Because it was like a historical perspective on how like two years later like nobody cared about they like some people couldn't even remember Neil Armstrong's names like just two years after it had happened which I am now. We're all crazy about it again. Maybe because it's the fifth year anniversary maybe a year later. We won't care about it again. Who knows I know that the Asian Museum and the folks are kids? Adults older folks. They were just Gaga over. I'm space moon is cool. I mean it's kind of like it's kind of like a nineteen sixty-nine somebody like the U._S.. Just went left. The first comment on the mood right and left didn't care about the actual content of it there you go all right lastly today's main story while we we saw continues. The White House is reportedly meeting with tech executives about the ban on Chinese telecom giant Washington Post is report detailing. It's worked to build and maintain North Korea's three G. Network. This is a story that will never end. I mean look until Oh there's definitive proof that Wa way. Is You know part of this massive espionage network and also at the same time. They're really the company that we that most countries have to rely on to build five G. Network not us not the U._S. most country yeah it's it's yeah we're just GONNA keep talking about this because like five Jeez such like like that's where every country's really going with their network and they have to rely alway on wall way for it or most of them do and and at the same time the U._S. is continuously say look that you cannot trust them on this and the U.. K. K. Collins had a great story on Friday the U._K.. is still there kind of deciding whether or not we should be in or out of these five networks.

"Neil Armstrong walked on the moon he had to land on the moon a job both difficult one point the display with black for a period of about ten seconds and tenths literally many of us have stopped reading at that time remembering the Apollo eleven moon landing fifty years later on the next morning edition from NPR news weekday mornings on eighty nine point three KPCC welcome to the frame I'm John horn Netflix stock tumbled about ten percent today that comes after the streaming content later lost some of one hundred and thirty thousand subscribers in the United States the first domestic decline since twenty eleven Netflix also added just two point seven million new customers overseas which was well below projections the company's executives say it's a minor blip and are confident that popular shows such as stranger things will help turn the subscriber numbers around interesting night Netflix actually beat wallstreet expectations in terms of per share profits but those margins could come under pressure as new streaming services such as Disney plus and HBO macs are scheduled to compete against Netflix in the coming months I spoke with varieties Todd Spangler to get more about what's going on with the streaming giant the company decided that price increases that it has undertaken in but the United States and other countries and obviously that has an effect of causing some people to leave the service and and inhibit others from signing up they also said that in the second quarter it was a lighter you know less mark he kind of our content line up as opposed to some of these bigger tent pole shows that they've got coming up through the second half of the year the second quarter is also light for TV watching in general so all of these things contributed to them really missing their forecast one of the analysts that you talk with said the company was in danger I'm quoting him now becoming a premium cable network on steroids and part of what's happening to Netflix is companies are taking back their content that they used a license to Netflix and put it on their own upcoming streaming services so if you're buying that theory the premium cable network on steroids what are the opportunities and what are the challenges if that's their future business yeah well first of all I don't think anybody expects all of Netflix's licensing deals to go way even in the low in the long term there will still be independent studios that you know will want to get a big check from Netflix so that's not going away the other thing to keep in mind is even though you've got Disney and Warner media and NBC and among others in a reclaiming some of their popular content for their own streaming services this these are these are individual titles that you know presumably Netflix will be able to compensate for over the long run with original programming and even though Netflix historically has been very shy or private or secret about who how many people are watching what shows we do know that shows like stranger things ava duvernay is documentary when they see us Adam Sandler's murder mystery movie have been watched by a lot of people and that is content that Netflix is either producing or acquiring from other parties it's not coming from rival studios is that possibly the model going forward that instead of friends or the office that it's going to be that kind of content that in theory will drive and retain subscribers right well first of all most of the data that we hear is from Netflix counting the successor suppose its success of her own project so you do have research from Nielsen and some other companies that bolster the the argument but we don't have a way to independently verified and the reason for that is Netflix doesn't have to share data because they're not ad supported well let me ask you that is it is there a scenario that some analysts are talking about where there might be advertisements on Netflix there could be different tiers of pricing depending on how much advertising if any you're willing to watch in their earnings announcement yesterday they pretty firmly said this is a complete non starter they said we do not have any plans to do this and any speculation that we will this fall so that was pretty strongly worded coming out a Netflix about sticking to their subscription only business model like a lot of Hollywood companies Netflix has enjoyed tremendous growth outside of the United States and one of the more notable things about the earnings was that the rate of growth for international subscribers well they did add two point seven million new subscribers worldwide that was not what they were hoping for or expected to get so how much of the company's future is really contingent on growing subscribers overseas because Netflix is also investing and a lot of foreign language production yeah the big the company is mostly an international company in terms of its subscriber base and the opportunity for growth is clearly much bigger outside of the United States than it is in the U. S. where are seeing that they're bumping up against may be a natural ceiling of the number of customers they can sign up yeah and it's obviously going to be a value proposition for the subscribers and the fact that subscriptions went down right around the time that that flicks boosted the monthly fees not at all a coincidence wasn't well no and they did admit that they miss their subscriber forecasts particularly in areas where they have raised the pricing and some of the conventional wisdom going into this was that for you know Netflix is price pretty pretty well under HBO's standalone streaming service you know and they're really affordable when you compare it to traditional cable or satellite TV well when Netflix dial it up a little higher to about thirteen dollars a month for the standard plan I think they they saw that some people were not we're not having it but thirteen dollars in some cities like New York and LA barely gets you a big tub of popcorn at a movie theater Todd Spangler is the New York digital editor for variety Todd thanks so much.

We have thirty minutes past the hour on Apollo eleven seeing a man rocket into space to get to the moon land and come back to Earth. All of it was a major risk trip to the moon is such a long and fragile daisy chain of events. That's Apollo Eleven astronaut Michael Collins speaking got a panel hosted by the Explorers Club earlier this year any little link in the chain breaks and that's the end of it and there are so many those events along the way President Nixon had prepared a backup backups speech in case the moon landing failed. Here's an actor reading the first few lines fate has ordained that the men who went to the moon to explore in peace will stay on the moon to rest in peace these brave men Neil Armstrong and Edwin Aldrin know that there is no hope for their recovery. Nixon didn't have to give that speech but it's clear why he was prepared. Spaceflight was so demanding and so unforgiving even even if you're talking about the prelaunch preparations for emission that any misstep any carelessness whatsoever can have terrible consequences. That's Andrew Shaken a space journalist who's written books about the the Apollo Program and just a couple of years before the moon landing those terrible consequences had become real. It was all over in one stunned horrifying second Apollo one which was supposed to be a first manned mission to reach lower orbit caught fire during a test simulation killing the three astronauts who were trapped inside the flames enveloped Apollo one burning the couches charring the spacesuits crewmen never had a chance the fire there was a disaster that was brought on by kind of blindness in which NASA was really amazingly unaware of the danger they had been putting the astronauts into and that was that awareness was seared into NASA by the Apollo fire the tragedy led to a new level of care and precision safety became a top concern the question what if haunted every simulation but still they knew that plenty could could go wrong especially when it came to their most ambitious mission yet Liz tongue talked with Andrew about one part of Apollo eleven were failure was just seconds away in the last interview that Neil Armstrong every gave he revealed his greatest fear going into the moon landing mission. I should say that <hes> I thought we had a ninety percent chance of getting back safely to Earth on that flight but only a fifty fifty chance of making.

"With that the words of Neil Armstrong as he landed on the moon, nineteen sixty nine it's all a part of the American moonshot. I know you know how it ends, but you don't know how it started. That's what moonshot does he goes back to the creation of the rocket and the theories behind it. Douglas brinkley. Put it all together as books out this week, Doug, you sat down with Neil. Armstrong, there's so much to talk about this. But tell me what's that, like will the line, you just played his famous line on the moon. He wrote that himself, but he sat down a little kitchen table with his brother, and that's who he test marketed the line on in his brother said, you can't do any better. You, you nailed it. That's perfect. And so, you know, when we there's been a movie out this year called I man about Neil Armstrong he was the only difficulty I had talking to him. He really is an engineer. It was like a military mind. This was emission. They was a battle of the Cold War of the president of the United States. We're going to go to the moon and I'm a it was. Soldier mentality. So I'm a history teacher. So I try to be the amenities guy with him a little, and I said, Mr. Armstrong, don't you ever as look up at the moon? And think my God. I stood there and I look down at earth. He goes, no, if that's all I got out of them. He doesn't like to remain assize at all. He just thought that it was a mission if he had been told to fly, you know, a spy plane over China, he would have done it that this was his job to train. He was deeply focused. He does believe a lot that engineers aren't celebrated in American history. The I can't say the word engineer more times and make Neil Armstrong happy because he thinks that those are the real heroes of America. The built the dams the roads are our buildings are the great greatness of American engineering, but beyond that, you know, he just he did read. He was degraded. Reader, but in his later years, he lived outside Cincinnati. He could go to a Kroger grocery store, nobody even when. No. It's Neil Armstrong, anyone that way. Yes, because he loved Charles Lindbergh and what happened Lindbergh there, the kidnapping Lindbergh's, baby. And he knew the fame of being the first person the moon that the tabloid media would pick them apart. He really do not like news culture. He liked history. He would talk to scholars. He was not a Herman of some people say son on corporate boards here and there, but he believed that, that he was part of a team, and that for everybody make him the celebrity when he coulda gone the moon without all these amazing computer specialists in rocketeers four percent of GDP want to this 'cause now the president all these presents they will want to go back then they want to go to Moore's, you think we could ever twenty seconds.

That was Neil Armstrong, said that it the actual lunar module, I handled very similarly to the, the test, or the concept, actually, creating simulator, that actually flies and then using a very well, controlled descended engine to make it come down at the same rate that would under the moon's gravity. And then have such a sophisticated stabilization system that even Augusta wind wouldn't appear to affect. Because in a said it had to appear like it was flying fat, Cuba. Very clever. Yeah.

Berg isn't very far as a country drive to Connecticut where Neil Armstrong's from. So I remember vividly Brian watching every moment I slept on a sofa and built like a fortress. So I can watch all of this and try not to sleep for the big moment when you'll Armstrong sets foot on the moon. He had become I all seasons hero. I was one of those kids collecting plates of all the Apollo missions, bobbleheads and trading cards of astronauts, I had major Matt Mason, which were these like Joe's of space, and I made like lunar camps. And and I realize now that I'm older I wasn't a child of World War Two or the great depression. My big moment when you're nine years old. You're very impressionable. It was the fact that Neil Armstrong down the road from me. And so my parents took me to Connecticut before he walked on the moon. Drove around the see all the sites there. I was there for the opening of that museum when moon rock came back. I went to go see the moon rock anxiously. So I was smitten and take it in by them. They go into the moon of my childhood of the nineteen sixties and early seventies. I had a list term when I read them out loud only because they deserve being heard anybody my age.

So we can that was in two thousand one, but I had written Armstrong in the nineteen nineties. I had finished my doctorate at Georgetown. And I've written a book on dean actress, and then one on James forceful, and I got the PO box per Neil Armstrong near Cincinnati, Ohio. And I sent him my book signed, and I got a little note back Brian from his personal assistant of plight. But it said he'll read one of the two books that he spent the night. I remember feeling God I have said to have been one to to money, and they said, he's not doing interviews. But will keeping you in mind, so long did you talk to him? We spent a whole day like six hours of talking to him at the Johnson Space Center in the nine eleven tragedy happened that I people ask where? I was when the nine eleven happened. I was in New Orleans watching the watching the crumbling of of the World Trade Center in New York City thinking there goes my my Neil Armstrong interview. I was supposed to interview him a few days later and all aviation was shut down airports. Now, I was in Orleans. I knew I could drive to Houston, but they were closing airports places. And I found out from NASA that he doesn't cancel things Neil Armstrong, and that he flies his own plane. So he flew his own private plane by himself and landed in at Johnson Space Center walked in and had him sign my book, which the NASA people didn't like very much, but he didn't put like a smiley face by Neil Armstrong. That's great possession. I have and got to spend time asking him anything and felt that place that I made some progress in the QA was on the Korean war, which Armstrong in Korea stories onto themselves about his near death. On combat missions the like, but when it came to talking Neil Armstrong about the mood. I was too much of humanity's guy. Because at one point I was trying to open them up. He's an engineer from her.

"I think he told you that when he was a young boy he would dream about it at night that he had this recurring dream of holding his breath and hovering over the ground that he was either neither flying or didn't fall. But he was just hovering in history. He did have that story in. What was I think really interesting about it was he was very reluctant to tell it to me because he didn't you know, he was not the sort of person who really, you know. I mean, there was a spiritual side to him. But he wasn't the sort of person who who would emphasize the element of dreams, for example in who he was or what he became. And so he had this recurring dream in. So he admitted to it. But it was it was almost embarrassed to do it. Because he, you know, he I think he ended the story to me by saying, Well, I I don't think you wanna make too much of that, you know, so he was very practically minded guy, and and even as a boy was type of type of proto engine. Near knowing looked at things. But also as you're saying like profoundly Goro a goal oriented very ambitious because you write about how you were saying this a minute ago, but it wasn't necessarily some sort of a passion floor space and space exploration necessarily that drove him, but that all the great aviation accomplishments had already been done, and he kind of resented that. And it was space that was the next step. Yeah. That was you know, he growing up in the thirties. And there were still lots of firsts that were happening in terms of piloting aviation. And of course, reading all those flight magazines as a boy and building all those models. He was aware of the great pioneering flights of that era of the post of the pre World War Two era. And he kind of thought as a boy. Well, everybody's got those done. Now. What's next? Of course, he didn't realize that there were all sorts of things yet to come. Well, so James Hansen. I wanna talk with you in some detail about an area of Neil Armstrong's life that the movie focuses on quite a bit. It and that's the death of his two year old daughter. Karen? So first of all, let's let's just play seen here from the movie. I man you'll hear Ryan Gosling who plays Neil Armstrong in in the scene. He's asked about Karen's death. You know, I was sorry to hear about your daughter. I'm sorry question. What I mean is do you think will have an effect? I think it would be. Unreasonable to assume that it wouldn't have some effect. It's a scene from the movie I man, James Hansen. First full toes a little bit about Armstrong's daughter. What happened her well? Me. I I say that in terms that scene. What I what's really strikes me two things strike me the most and that is one that Josh singer the screenwriter used verbatim. A quote that. I mean, what Neil says in that scene about being unreasonable to assume that it would have no affect that comes directly from my interview with him back in early two thousands up because I asked in that specific question about did. He think it had in fact on his flying and on his crew choices afterwards. And that exactly what he's what he answered. So of course, I love that scene. Because it's exactly when the L said the other thing about seeing which I think is relevant to your question is that no one. I mean that question was not truly asked at his interview because no one there knew about it. I mean, the death of the child was so private that the panel that chose him had no idea that he even had a daughter or that's at or the daughter had died. He applied to the astronaut program after her death. Is that right? Yes. Yes. He does a few months after she. She was her name was Karen Armstrong, Nick, Neil's nickname for her was mufti, and she had a glioma of the Pons very malignant tumor that they tried to treat with cobalt radiation, which was very had all kinds of horrible side effects and was not successful the little grow had, you know, she was two and a half..

"But when we lost when we lost Columbia, we just didn't lose seven friends. We also spaceship and what happens to the program. So there's a loss of crew in vehicle now losing, but it's not so much about. It's really, I don't think because you can lose the vehicle but saved a crew. So if you haven't aboard with the shuttle and it ends up in the water as you aboard, hopefully the crew gets out alive. So it's a combination of loss of crew in vehicle was about one out of seventy five. And as it turned out, we had two accidents at one hundred thirty five flights. It's probably had it came up with that number quite honestly, but it was one out of seventy five a little lost. And do you think about it at all when you're or you just too busy doing your appointed duties to even let across you? I took a flight that's in New York from Detroit yesterday morning and the whole time I was like, God. I just hope these people know what they're doing. Sometimes you're wearing more on a commercial flight than you are doing. No, I, yeah, absolutely. I, I did. I don't know if everyone does, but I knew that that there was a very good chance at something might might. It might you might not be coming back and I think it's in some ways. That's a, that's a good thing to know the movie captured this with his relationship with his wife and his kids. Yeah, and I think also showed the after was successful, hell. Wonderful. It was for to have value. Has succeeded. Yeah, we have succeeded. Alan being tells us this story that after his after after Apollo eleven after his mission, it wasn't the whole world. His his impression was the whole world. It wasn't like you did it. The US did it, but we did it. We the human species. Yeah, that motto they came for all humankind. Let's change it a little bit right before humankind. I think that's the way of becoming peaceful human Colliver and that's why I think people felt about it. It was an accomplishment that for that humans that showed that we could do in the whole world was was a part of it. They felt it was an accomplishment for the world. I was had the privilege on it to be invited to Neil Armstrong's funeral service in and Ojo after he died and the moment was solemn, of course, but it was also celebratory reflections on the, oh, as a person. And one thing that came across was. Yeah, Neal was the right guy for this job and. Because if he started grandstanding this achievement, then it would be like he landed on the moon. But in fact, we all landed on the moon. It's our collective first step on the moon. Tens of thousands of engineers and scientists and hundreds of.

"I mean, it was he was he orbited in lunar orbit in the command module while Neil and Neil Armstrong buzz older on the on the on the moon, I heard him speak at the memorial. I don't want to misquote him, but at at kneels at Neil Armstrong's memorial when he died and they had a memorial service for him at the Johnson Space Center. And he talked a little bit about that about, you know, him being maybe a shine cerebral or whatever, but he was like, who would you? Why wouldn't you want that? Why would you this? This man who was so qualified? Who did such a great job? Why would you want him to be anything different than who he was? And I think that's, I think that that's he was the right man to land on the moon, and I think that was what they were most concerned with because no kidding they weren't so sure they were coming back from that mission. They weren't sure if social, they were going to be successful. Apollo twelve and thirteen eleven, twelve and thirteen all had the same mission. They all trained for the same mission because they weren't so sure eleven was going to be successful. And it was an in twelve had come up with something quick which was different than what they did on eleven, but they all trained for that same mission because they weren't so sure eleven was going to be was going to be successors saying, eleven failed. Then. Next up you here next hour. You're going to try. And that can be a few different ways wanting to necessarily that they would get that they wouldn't come back alive, but they might not get down to the surface and come back. They would have to abort an income back to earth. So the it was really important for them to to try to get the right guy to be the first guy and they and that's what they went with, who's the best guy to pull off the landing, especially of this. Veins. And by the way there's a, there's a misconception. I think about the first comments from Houston after he says Houston, tranquility base here, eagle has landed. Yeah, okay. Which means of course, the first word of the first comments from the moon is Houston. There you go. Applied for plug for Texas home planet Houston. Yeah, so Houston tranquility base here. Actually, there was some other contact light and other contact, right? But Houston then says something like graduation, you have a bunch of guys down here who were who turn blue Duke. Okay. Yeah. You think they're saying that because they just landed on the moon. That's not why they're saying they were holding their breath this not? Yes, they're holding their breath, but it's not because they just landed on the moon. Not why. Okay. Why would okay. So why were they about to turn wait? They were Smurfs. Sorry, because Neal was not happy with the original landing spot, and he only has a certain amount of fuel to prevent himself from crashing down onto the moon. This is keeping them buoyant. Nope, too many boulders. They're too many boulders there, and you see that you see the full, come down, wait a minute, and it keeps going. I think over and my boy is Smith. Okay. Yep. He's looking for parking and midtown. Can't. He can't. Try over there, but if you don't make it, you gotta go home. So then he finally finds a spot Lance. There's like one or two percent fuel. That's what they, because if he got if he went to zero. 'cause if. If he lands with fuel in a place that he could crash because it's not level that's bad. KP keeps looking. You can't get home if he keeps looking and runs out of fuel Bill crash because he runs out a fuel. He may have aboard, oh, they couldn't say I, you just you just point. I forgot about that. Okay, so it's not a good deal. He with just a and they capture this in the film in the tension. So that's why everyone at mission control was freaking out because that's that's the mission might not complete, not because, oh, happy land. Yes, wrought happy. Landed on the moon. Having landlord live. Yep. Yeah, he was done. I wanna headed low low fuel light came on thirty second fuel or whatever it was he? Yeah. And in the cadence of which depicted in the in the movie, but the cadence of what would know the calls he was getting from buzz, you know? So many forward so many down..

One of them to repair my whole space telescope. I love you. Thank you. You're welcome. Chuck. Nice. Co host Chuck. Yes. And I've been in space. I'm still in space. I'm still in space out in space to different things. I was asked back in two thousand nine to host to emcee the fortieth anniversary of the Apollo landing in sixty nine plus forty gets you to two thousand and I it was in the Space Museum. It was. I'm there and I forgot Mike. You what I did you told you just moonwalk well, I had every living moon-walker in the audience and interesting things. Remember I know you I know said some. you said some. You said something about being the fortieth. Saying how forty was an interesting number because, oh fifty, you might not. And we've lost so many of those guy then. And now. And you did the moonwalk which have I don't dance to the forty because that sounds a little you know provocative. So what I try to this is when I said forty is an interesting number because in many stories they don't track it beyond forty. So forty days and forty nights. Yeah, it's not fifty days fifty nine forty days and forty nights. Jesus got thirty nine lashes. Not forty forty. That's like infinite right. You got rain that in. Okay, you don't wanna kill him and I just wanna hurt him. Oh, that's the one last would have. Did it. What else is just a number forty shows up, especially Biblically? Yes. Okay. And it's a. So when you pass forty, it's like. More time than historically people reckoned. Okay. You sort of, you know, once you forty and then Infinity beyond that. And so beyond that, it's like, okay, is it still there for us to remember or do we have to be reminded of it? Whereas if was within forty, you can talk about it. People are alive. They conscious they were adults. They were so it makes sense. That's two generations basically beyond stepping into the next generation, and that makes perfect sense. Okay. I think that set the mood at the time that this was a really special night. Event afterwards. Star talk was in our first year, and I said, this is a target of opportunity for me to get a bunch of interviews and we can make a show out of this. So I waited till the event was over and we had a reception and all of this, and I got interviews with various key people in the space program at the time as well as some Alzheimer's, like Neil Armstrong and he never gives interviews. Yeah. Have you ever seen him interviewed on now? That's one of the things he's known for is not is not a big talker. Here's why. I think he granted me the interview. Because moonwalked. I, I met him when I was fourteen o on board the SS Ken Barra on route from New York City to the coast of north west Africa, Cal to observe a total solar eclipse the longest in the century. And he was one of the various sort of important people brought on board for stay would enjoy the eclipse, but also they were there for the rest of us to interact with. And this is nineteen Seventy-three teeth. Fourteen herself yet by myself. Yeah, I was gonna say, what. Did your parents know you going like wait. My parents didn't even let me take the subway back then by myself. Lanes. With Neil Armstrong seen clips. Fifty telescope with me from go to a ball game, and I was excited. Telescope, I had my camera and awesome. There were fifteen hundred people.

So I got Stephen hawking award for science communication, and just this only like a year old, but but this woman is introduced me to omega watches mega was the first watch on the moon, right? They were chosen by NASA after NASA got all the all the premier, what the Rolex bricklaying, whatever the top watches we're the day. I wonder if they threw in a time ex just just to get America in their beds. So they, they did say, throw it in on the moon, lick it and keep. Nobody remembers that advertisement the wind. Wetness? Oh, yeah. The moon watch was a wind up going. Yes. So they put them all in black boxes, each scrambled him and shake him. Baked him heated in aided him. At the end of the experiments, you'll make us lent the correct time. Mega is our watch. And so they still milk that today with their advertising in this festival that I attended the star miss festival that hawking organizer of omega was one of the sponsors. And so this became the watch the in. Great is in grave on the back. But I saw a watch, look, very much like this on Neil Armstrong's hands right in the movies right there. I'm wearing. You're in. I have this from from being us astronaut Dono this. Okay. So we had we had mega watchers on the shuttle in a way it was explained like how they win their competition was the crystal apparently crystal that they had on top almost impenetrable and you could do whatever you wanted to it. It wasn't gonna crack with particles a problem. So that's why I wanna watch. Well, I, why did ahead of time. Had a different omega that we had. We had a different. We wanted to have the time. We had a different omega of for the shuttle. This is the moon version. I had a different one that I've had a purchase now we'll make was willing. I think to give us these watches for free. But it was a government program and NASA said not so fast. So we had a, we had a by our watches, but we were able to purchase them from omega and then fly them. I'm not wearing my shuttle watch and I'm wearing a moon. Watch it. Yes, I had to go into the store and buy, and that is messed up man. No, other way you can be right? Yeah, it was the right thing. How you want you don't wanna. All right. We got take a break. You are listening to possibly even watching star talk.

"Yeah. So he'll Armstrong said one small step for man, giant leap from what were your first tweet from space? Yeah, that's the problem. Now there's a Neil Armstrong related to it. Okay. Go, there you go. Very first. Neil Armstrong came to speak to my astronaut class. We were there for a total of four days. So you still like an astronaut where? Yeah, we were just getting like he was. He happened. In town for his physical are training managers in Houston, right? At the Johnson Space on all new astronauts and she asked him pays most was she CIT to win a gave, get a message over the clinic where he comes speak to us, and he said he would only wanted to speak to the new astronauts. So he came over and talked to us mainly about finding the x fifteen, and we ask them questions. The the tests plane from NASA based on a military. I mean, it's it's rocket supersize rocket my supersonic rocket point. Yeah, it was one of the more I don't maybe the most successful experimental aircraft ever ever built it. When like mock seven. A couple of those guys have been times the speed of sound? Yeah. And a couple of those guys earn their astronaut wings for having to? Yes, that's how high this airplane could go get into what spaces at arbitrary boundary. That's another story, but but they were able to earn astronaut wings in that earth itself is in space. Yes, it is. Yes. Have you ever. Have you ever. He could bring this up because we'll have a whole 'nother show going about the bounty space, but but an amazing aircraft. He talked about that and other things, and we got to meet him and talk to them. But the day after re-ready it was like a luncheon going on because it was a reunion as well as him coming in for physical, and I ended up next on the food line, you know, making a sandwich to go on a child line. Seem right. That's wrong. It wasn't bad food though. Even though as government food wasn't anyway. So he's next to me and I said to myself, I had to say something to this guy was I'm next one. I don't know how it happened, but serve dip Asli and I asked him. When did you think of that first thing that you said on the Mon? The one small step for man, one g. y. tell you, did you get a publicist who how'd you come up with this? And he turned him and he says, well, Mike, I thought about it only after we landed because if we didn't land, I wouldn't have to say anything. It wouldn't make a difference. And so he concentrated only on the landing sages grain energy will. But I think what he was domestic. He was trying to get to me as a new astronaut or I dunno if he was trying. But the message I took was you take care of business, I and you worry about about this stuff later. So his his focus was landing on the moon. So for my tweet, I did the same approach. I'm not gonna worry about this first week we have to. We have to launch into space. We have to get their alive and successfully. I got a job to do. Big mistake staking. This was a mistake, so I get there and it's all right. We're alive and it's time to computers are up and running on day one. And so I need to come up with something. So what I what I said, what I tweeted was launch was awesome. The adventure of a lifetime has begun a feeling great enjoying view, something like along, but the person I, it was okay. But during the during the mission, I know I was paying attention to the mission. Of course, during a mission. Aside aside bars, I didn't get any Email from my kids. My kids were they were both teenagers a love, my kids, they're both in his, but they were very happy that I was away from the planet at that time and ignoring me and I'm writing them. They could. They could have taken personally, some dad's going business who left planet earth. We're happy. I was away dad, annoying. Dad can't bother us anymore.

"Having have look up, do a why shout of them with the Rover in the flag and cut credits cut. Now, if they had done that, another thing they should have done what they did not do here in a soon as the movie ended. Tim looked at me because he knew I was going to be upset without it. There were no pictures. There were no videos of the actual people who did the thing. We just saw the make. We just saw what happened. Cool. I'm not looking in the credits to have the whole story shut like, give us like rest in peace, Neil Armstrong. Show do something, and I noticed that they tend to do that with lesser known situations. Like when we saw Detroit, a lot of people didn't know about that whole situation in show the people that were at Algiers and all that with this situation like this was huge like most people know about it, and that's probably why they didn't do it. Then you should have learned about it in school? Late choice not to put in there because. It's it's a lot of them making us. That's the way to sort of quote unquote, bring people right. What I love about. We've watched this fictional character, you know, you're playing beyond saying the movie. It's the end of the movie. We'd bring it home it which one actual it's kid and her like it's a way to sort of humanizes it right away. It'd be like, oh, this this crazy movie. It doesn't actually on the movie for me. I do think it's odd that they don't do it same with black klansman. That is that really bothered me with black klansman because I was like, this is a story that needed that desperately in need of infamy needed. I think it's out of the don't. I dunno if it's necessary because especially in business a filmmaker and the national vision for the right. Oh, so I don't know if it needs it, but it's odd to me that Dona time the end, I think. I think it's it's a, it's a, it's it's a low risk, high reward situation. This this minimal risks with adding photos and let people requested that not be done. I don't know if that's had Mancini's I dunno if they're state. Yeah, whoever's requesting. I don't know kid possibly be, but it's all be I at it was like, I don't want, you know, my husband attached to this or my father stuff happens late because I remember a cougar saying he added the opening to Black Panther. Super late will explain by brenham stuff and like the like the very being the animated stuff was added late. Okay. So who knows happening late in the game? I just think it's it's not too. Yeah, but I don't know what other mitigating factors are surrounding them not doing. It seems like a a no brainer to be like, hey, this is I'm trying to Oscar people..

"As Neil Armstrong of newcomer, Claire Foy. And I think it'll be seeing more from her plays his wife, Janet. This movie feels like a documentary at times as a matter of fact, Pamela, I went back after this. And I watched a hourlong documentary like Nova or something that was done about five years ago about Neil Armstrong. And I was amazed at how much in the documentary was almost exactly what I saw in the film. You know, when we had Mark Armstrong in here. Neil Armstrong, son. He was saying that, you know, a lot of the scenes you you'll see came from him and his brother and stories about his mom that they they had an a very important role in this entire movie trying to make it as real as possible. And I'm telling you when you see it, you also feel it because the sound in this movie also brings it so much to life movies about a half and half film. If you think about it about half of it is the technology rockets spaceships flying landing on the moon. The other half of the movie is who? Was this guy? Neil Armstrong, and I learned so much about him. I had things I had absolutely no idea about a relatively normal guy. Right. A humble quiet man who didn't speak much who became one of the most famous people on the planet because he was the first step of the minute. Can I tell you that this movie elicits a lot of emotions it's highs and lows and when he steps off of the the lunar landing steps off the pot and puts his field. I got terrorism is absolutely because this movie feels so real that while you may have only seen like the black and white grainy footage of it. Like this. This added color and depth to it. And made it seems so real. But what else it did? Is it humanized Neil Armstrong? Good point. You know, we look at him as this icon. Is this hero? You American hero. He was a dad. He was a husband. He was human humanity to it that I wasn't quite expecting. In fact, we talked a little bit to Damian Chazelle, the director about the movie, and as all directors, they shoot a lot not all of it makes it into the film, and I was interested, but what didn't make it into the about the family that that he wished would have take a listen, there's even major events in Neil's life that you know, we we shot just didn't quite we didn't quite have time to to to do for example, their house burned down when they moved to Houston about a year later. So as though not as though they didn't already have enough things to deal with suddenly a freak house fire almost killed them. Listen, I this is this is a movie that's gonna. Award nominations. I think from a technical standpoint, it looks amazing from a sound standpoint. It looked so real landing on the moon sound all of it and the acting through it is phenomenal. I mean, I love me some Ryan Gosling he did fantastic. But boy clarify was amazing. I man on the one five I thought it dragged a little in the middle of that would have been my criticism of it. I gave it a four and a half out of five. Nice. I second thought the other movie that opens up today is called bad times at the El royale. All right. It's got kind of a Quinton Tarantino kind of a vibe to it sounds like it. Yeah. All star cast. I mean, you're talking Chris.

Into officially went into space Armstrong. Was one of those pilots Armstrong. Was a really interesting cat he was in. Many ways the anti Yeager he was the opposite of Yeager Yeager Chuck Yeager was. A. Natural stick and rudder man he was the. Guy in nineteen, forty seven there was the he was the guy to take the x one supersonic to be the first man to go. Past the speed of sound and then he went on to this, phenomenally successful flight test career but Yegor who still live by the way he's tweeting and he's the most cantankerous son of a bitch on.

You don't, tell that, guy. To shut up but Chuck Yeager says The Neil Armstrong in that movie that's not the, Neil Armstrong I know Here's what he said Ryan Gosling is, coming out, with the movie I man where portrays Neil Armstrong as a I'm sorry this is someone tweeting this, to to to Yeager. As, a liberal progressive anti-trump which is non flagwaver which is, not true otherwise, Chuck Yeager said that's not the Neil Armstrong I knew but then again the person who's tweeting. That to them is is kind of spinning this up quite a bit I don't another, user that the, emission of, the US flag being planted on the moon. Constituted more Hollywood, make believe, but, it's kind of the opposite. Of that like you say the omitted which and I'll tell you why I think that's a horrible. Mistake and they're going to lose at the box office on this Ryan Gosling told reporters at first man seeks to show the moon landing as a human, achievement instead of something distinctly American and the one reporter from KFI said could, you please eat a bag of. Dis that was MU by. The way He. Said quote I also think Neal was extremely humble as were many of these astronauts and time and time again he deferred the focus from himself to the, four hundred thousand people have made the mission? Possible Americans by the way Mr. And all that it was nevertheless in American achievement, he says so I don't think that. Neil viewed himself as an American. Hero for my, interviews with his family and people. That knew him it was quite the opposite he's he's absolutely. Wrong, Neil. Didn't go around telling everybody was American hero but he was and he knew it he knew he was icon ick he. Knew that but he was very humble guy think about the tax payers sacrificed to to have that achievement yeah. Yeah come on and also. By the, way for the record the because the. Because the Canadians found a way to absolutely polacks they're very successful, 'aeronautics industry in by the early sixties with a really stupid investment and a really stupid, plane, all their engineers came south all you all of the good Canadian engineers join NASA came to. The, United States and became Americans by the way but so it emits the planning of the American flag and and all that Otherwise film diversion where they. Do plan I don't know what they can pull that out if that's the thing. Now that the words getting out. They didn't. And also by the way if they were thinking that somehow liberal one world people are going to go see this movie Wow. Did they miscalculate this audience. They're not interested I. I would say you know what do you own, the right stuff yes you're to you're. Going to go see this movie. But now that, you hear that it doesn't even. Feature planting the American flag and making an American achievement now. You, feel.
