NASA's Rover Will Collect Samples on Mars

"NASA says it's Perseverance Rover is getting ready to take its first sample of rock from Mars. The robot landed on the Red Planet in February. The hope is that it will unearth evidence of potential primitive life. Marc Labelle explains. NASA suspects an empty lake in the crater where the rover rests may have been replenished and drained with water several times. They still don't know if the soil they hope to dig up there is sedimentary or volcanic as they search for microbial life. Their perseverance. Rover has been busy practicing probing Martian soil samples with its robotic arm to repeat a moment space scientists compare to Neil Armstrong's bagging of Moon dust 52 years ago. Mark Lobel

The Speech Richard Nixon Never Gave

"On july twenty fourth nineteen sixty nine neil armstrong and buzz aldrin became the first humans to walk on the moon during their time walking on the surface which only lasted about two and a half hours. They received a phone call from the president of the united states. Richard nixon for purposes. That will soon become obvious. I'd like to play the entire clip free now. And don't worry it's not very long kneeland is talking to you by telephone from the oval room house and this certainly has to be the most historic telephone. Call ever made from the white house. I just can't tell you how proud we all are what you have done for. Every american this has to be proudest day of our lives and for people all over the world. I am sure that they to join with americans and recognizing what an immense speak. This is because of what you have done. The heavens have become a part of man's world and as you talk to us from the sea of tranquility it inspires us to redouble our efforts to bring peace and tranquility to earth for one priceless moment and the whole history of man. All the people on this earth are truly one one in their pride in what you have done and one in our prayers that you will return safely to earth. The call caused some controversy. People objected to using the moment to put the emphasis on a political leader. Democrats were upset. Because nixon had only been president a few months and most of the apollo program had been developed under the kennedy and johnson administrations nonetheless. The controversy was rather minor and soon forgotten. The speech however wasn't the only speech that was prepared in the lead up to apollo eleven the nixon administration was thinking about what they say in their phone call to the astronauts nixon speechwriter. William safire was contacted by an astronaut and was warned about something that they should be prepared for in a new york times article nineteen eighty-nine where sapphire was a columnist for years. He wrote quote. Frank borman our liaison with the astronauts brought the image making You wanna be thinking of some alternative posture for the president. In the event of mishaps the blank looks at this techno jargon he added like what to do for the widows suddenly we were faced with the dark side of the moon planning death if it came would not come in a terrible blaze of glory. The greatest danger was that the two astronauts on the moon would not be able to return to the module in that event with no rescue possible. The men would have to bid the world farewell and closed down communication preparatory to suicide or starvation.

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

"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.

"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.

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.

S. state department later he was director of the national air and space museum but of course nothing you ever went on to do have the impact of that mission to the moon the same could be said of NASA's manned space flight program nothing since has captured the imagination like that first moon landing will it ever be surpassed well Michael Collins joins me now welcome to hold tool thank you very much David this year marks the fiftieth anniversary of the historic Apollo eleven eleven mission which you are a key part of it means the spotlight is back on that mission its back on you how do you feel about that there were three of us of course on that flight Neil Armstrong and buzz Aldrin and and I am three very lucky people Neil Armstrong was born in nineteen thirty buzz Aldrin nineteen thirteen Mike Collins nineteen thirty three quite different people Neil Armstrong didn't like the spotlight buzz Aldrin does like to spotlight my account doesn't like this was all due respect Sir my college doesn't like the spotlight either and yet here we are and we're gonna talk about what happened in nineteen sixty nine do you talk about it with the an enduring sense of pride very much so I mean I was I was very proud of the job as the three of us did getting us to and from the moon that trip is a very long and fragile daisy chain and the links are very fragile I'll and and we were able to keep them all intact do our jobs properly but one of the three of us there were almost four hundred thousand Americans working on project Apollo and and I thank them they're the ones who don't get recognized I want to take you back actually quite sometime before the mission before voters amazing of pictures of the foot steps on the moon I want to take you back to John F. Kennedy pledging to invest whatever it took to get American man on to the moon in nineteen sixty one I guess I'm the within the decade he said we will make it happen absolutely did you at the time when he said that did you think that's me I am going to do whatever I can to be part of that no I did not win John F. Kennedy made that famous speech a man on the moon by the end of the decade I was struggling with a courtesans of motion and the test pilot school at Edwards airforce base and the notion of flying to the moon was far beyond my Ken once I did join the space program and become part of Apollo as the months went by I thank John F. Kennedy more and more because the stark simplicity of his mandate was wonderful for us we we could quote John Kennedy and we can get things done we can accelerate people we tell people we've got to have this by day after tomorrow at the Kennedy mandate the simplicity of it the stark beauty of it really helped us along to the mound did you feel like you were part of some sort of Cold War contest because we shouldn't forget that Kennedy's commitment was in part at least driven by a preoccupation with what the Soviets were doing in the sense that the Soviets may be getting ahead of America in the space race this was America's determination to fight back did did you feel like a cold warrior in a sense yes a little bit we we of course were acutely aware of the U. S. S. R. we knew that we were in a competition with them but somehow that was behind a scrim behind a screen it wasn't part of our day to day life I didn't feel like an active competitor my problems were American problem trying to get American problem solved and although we knew we were in this competition we were our our lease my consciousness was ninety nine percent taken with non Soviet affairs or status you were picked ultimately for this Apollo eleven mission along side as you say Neil Armstrong and buzz Aldrin you then spend time training with them you did the mission with them it was a feat of enormous ambition and daring and I just wonder what sort of bones you for jhed with those two men Armstrong and Aldrin we form some of some very strong bonds but actually not really during the flight of Apollo eleven or even during a prepared to a flight of the flight it was around the world trip that we took after the flight when I I came to know Neil better during our training in the first place we had we had not been a backup crew as most of primary crews had been so we just you got to know each other in the six months before the flight which is a short period of time further we were split by by function Neil and buzz were primarily off doing lunar module training I was usually by myself doing command module in training so I somewhere along the line described this is an amiable strangers that I didn't in may not interrogatory way but when we were very hard working when the day was over we we didn't party we didn't drive a color coordinated corvettes or any of that kind of thing we were our noses were should the grindstone we had both come off the Gemini program so we did have some experience in space Gemini program was a fascinating but a much smaller program and it had more of a local appeal or or you're feeling about it almost perhaps like an athletic contest of some sort Apollo eleven on the other hand was heavy duty big business we felt though the weight of the world on our shoulders we were being looked at and examine minutely where under tight time table time schedule and amiable strangers we were we were in a sense but there's something intensely human about the the the roles you have because Armstrong and Aldrin as you say were committed to the the landing they were in the lunar module and they were going to be the guys let us be honest who we're gonna get the glory of making those footsteps on the moon you were integral to the mission but you were piloting the command module you would absolutely crucial to getting them on to the moon and getting them off the moon and back home but you were not then and it seems to me it takes a particular kind of man to be committed to the mission and it.

"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.

There's also the there's this is probably going to be up there with that. I would think right. It's every zits is it still the treasures? Of course, we have the cinematic and we. This is just another iconic moment history that we're able to bring here able to bring it Cincinnati, and it's, you know, as we started the show with it part of it is because of the union terminal and part of it's because it's insane museums and our what we do. So, you know, we're very proud of or we're always honored to get these exhibitions and gets these artifacts to be caretakers for them and have that opportunity to share that with the city and this was certainly no exception, especially as near and dear Neil Armstrong, hurts here, this is important lie. We, we fund in why the Levy passed, I think most people said my God, it's a treasure, not just for the is. But, but for future generations to look at the but to go and explore and my kids grew up, essentially children's museum, and we have wonderful memories of our kids in there as well. That's something that future generations will benefit from. But the fact that matter remains is, we can be a magnet for attractions like this. I it's about educating informing EVA's connection to the history. That we all collectively shares Americans and we're just loaning our time here. We're just loaning things and we have to be stewards of them for the future. And I'm glad we did this and more. Glad we're able to benefit by getting something as rare as the Apollo eleven exhibit called destination moon, the Apollo eleven mission come into a museum center into September bail the way through February. And I'm sure you. I'm sure people are queuing up for tickets right now. Asking. July twentieth. Yeah, exactly right. I mean obviously the at fifty years later, here we are. It's, it's incredible. Hey, Cody museum center. Thanks again for coming on the show. Appreciate it. There you go. Probably I would think one of the most iconic things in Cincinnati. When you come down seventy five is seeing that building there. The other thing, too is. It's amazing. When Kennedy said, hey, we, we want to put a man on the moon. A lot of people laugh said we can't do it. It took eight years. In eight years, we went from we don't know what the hell we're doing. Let's work. The problem to Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin, walking on the surface of the moon Michael Collins, of course, the orbiter in fifty years. That's incredible eight years. How long does it take? About women talking about fixing in a ready existing breath, spins bridge, or the western hills viaduct, which by the way, went up long before the alarm strong in both Aldrin walked on the moon. We can't fix stuff. We already have let alone dream big projects anymore in America. I know I sound like a bitter old man.

The guys talking to us from the mobile. I don't remember this is really across treat. My parents were out of town, she put me in front of a television good for her said, watch this. You're going to remember it someday. And I still remember to this day second, what do you think of people who believe that the moon landing was faked? So the cap record in one we were never on the moon. It was the sound stage, well, as you know, Mace I'd love conspiracy theories, but that's a reach for even guys like me. No. Of course you don't think we would have figured it out by now by now. We would know we would know the facts. And, and by the way, like people have died, trying to go to space. Yeah. Absolutely. Yeah. Wait. It's very disrespectful to them. Okay. And the last one is it important because it was stated by the current president that he wants to go back to the moon, isn't important to go back to the moon. Okay. This is going to make me seem not very progressive. But I always thought all the money we spend on the space program is kind of a waste I we've, we've conquered it, we've been to the Neil Armstrong has been to the moon. Why don't we need to go back though? Do you are you do you want to colonize it? No. But I but I will say that going to the moon, the act of doing it has led to amazing advancement normally that's how you get. It's, it's what you discover, like wasn't titanium a result of the space, Grammy, neom memory foam, satellite television, scratch resistant, lenses shoe, insoles, the smoke detector was invented, because of it cat scans were in bed because so, so that's the reason to do it.

"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. You think he'd ever rallied the support to do something like this again? I think we could go back to the moon. Mike Pence gave a good speech last week in Huntsville. About it in the next four or five years. We have the technology and it would become a base camp for eventually getting to Mars, listen, it's a great store. You know how it ends Joan how it started.

"And I would have been eight nine years old. I would benign that shortly thereafter. So it's a little boy growing up in Perry's Burgo Hieaux near Toledo and Perry's. 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. Remember, these names these the twelve men that walked on the moon nail Armstrong buys Alvin Apollo eleven Pete Conrad, Alan bean politics, Alan shepherd. Edgar mitchell. Apollo fourteen David Scott James Irwin, Apollo fifteen. John Young Charles Duke, Apollo sixteen Jack Schmitt Apollo seventeen and Apollo seventeen last man to walk on. Jane Cernan, nineteen seventy-two any of those papers do for Neil Armstrong. I got to do the. Official oral history of his Ecorse passed, but I did the official oral history of Neil Armstrong with the late historian, Stephen Ambrose clip event in a second when you did it. 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. Do you identify you of Purdue an ID to it? What a great school. So many of our astronauts went to Purdue peace and engineers mission Jack Kennedy put going to the moon. It's my mission. So he was an engineer mode. And I said Mr. Armstong done to go up and look at the luminous moon. And look I think my God I'm gonna be stepping there right before.

"Welcome back. This is the Ben Shapiro show. So Democrats have been insisting the green new deal is the most important piece of legislation since the Magna Carta AO AOC so fresh so face so much incredible freshness. As well as baseness and her green new deal, which is the most important piece of legislation since World War Two we are in a battle with the sun, and we're gonna win it. And if it cost us ninety three trillion dollars over the next ten years, I e sixty five thousand dollars per American family every year from now until well, then we're going to do it because otherwise in twelve years as were dead in a dozen years. That's right. You're plotting your kids are plotting, your grandparents are plotting. We're gonna take them up. They're gonna plots again. That's how all this is going to war ails yesterday. It was like, you know, what guys like well like people while they're dying. What? This is not in elitist issue. This is a quality of life issue. You want to tell people that their concern and their desire for clean air and clean. Water is elitist people are dying the are dying and the response across the other side of the aisle is to introduce an amendment five minutes before a hearing a markup. This is serious. This should not be a partisan issue. This is serious. People are dying guys we need a vote on the wait. No, no. No. No. No sorry. Sorry. Let me rephrase we need a debate about it. I'm gonna introduces Bill is so important when they kill the farting thousand airplanes, we're gonna wreck every building every building in the United States where gonna get rid of cars guys. It's going to be the best. We're going to invent unicorns that float on their flatulence. But they're flatulence has no carbon emissions. None. No methane, methane free flatulence from unicorns. That's all this is gonna work. The Democrats proposal this rate, Ed Markey. Does it and we are told by Cory Booker seriously? This is the most important moments of our lives. We are told by Kamala Harris, and this is so important. We're told by Elizabeth Warren. This is Elizabeth Warren says the green new deal is like the moon landing which she should know since you recently was on the moon. It's where she gets most ideas heroes. Elizabeth Warren yesterday saying that the Greenwood zeal is so important. It's just like when we landed on the moon except for not at all like that. President Kennedy challenged our nation to lead the space race and less than seven years later. Neil Armstrong set foot on the moon the impossible had become a reality. And America had led the way it's time not only to challenge our country to tackle climate change head on but also to lead the world in doing. So if we do not lead, then others will if we don't lead others will and others. Do we're all gonna die. Everybody's gonna die death all around. So Mitch McConnell looks at the green new deal is like, you know, what you're right. It's super important. I see now how important is because you guys keep jabbering about it incessantly. He's probably vote on it. Let's have a vote. Let's see if we can finally move forward on the most pressing issue of our age, it is deeply important. We must move forward on this cocaine. Mitch bringing it to the floor for a vote, and then Senator Mike Lee. Who is low key. Extremely funny. So Senator Mike Lee of Utah friends who the program and personal friend of mine, and he's really really what one of the things about Mike Lee is the dude he's like Bob Newhart. He said he's really funny, but it's all with a straight face. So Mike Lee did a speech on the floor of the United States. Senate mocking the living daylights out of the green new deal mainly by using memes, which was just great. So my favorite is brought out a painting of Ronald Reagan writing of a loss raptor while firing a machine gun, and he explained what this had to do with the green new deal after reading the green new deal. I mostly afraid of not being able to get through this speech with a straight face for Mr President. I rise today to consider the green new deal with the seriousness. It deserves this is of course, a picture a former president Ronald Reagan naturally firing a machine gun while right? Getting on the back of a dinosaur. You'll notice a couple of important features here. First of all, the rocket launcher strap the President Reagan's back, and then the stirring unmistakable patriotism of the philosopher after holding up a tattered American flag. A symbol of all means to be an American this image has as much to do with overcoming communism in the twentieth century as the green new deal has to do with overcoming climate change in the twenty first. And that's not the only one. Then he he did this whole thing about how the only way under the green new deal to get from Hawaii and the mainland was to swim like and they put like a picture of aquaman riding a dolphin. It was great. It was great. So the media did with the media too the media pretended that they don't understand what a joke is when somebody on the right? Does something funny. The media's first response is what is joke. Why? How funny what what do funding mean? And then they then they run headlines like Mike Lee makes bizarre criticism of green new deal showing Reagan on velociraptor. No, it's joke idiots, and we all know, you're lying. We all know you get the joke, but you're going to pretend to play it straight. 'cause he's so weird, man. I mean, he was demean the AFC. She's super cool when she uses means has like a lot and also has an instant apart. I know intimating, so here's the best part of this. So it comes up for the vote all fifty three Republicans vote. No on the stupid green deal and four Democrats meeting. Three democrats. Independent Angus king vein. They also vote. No, that'd be Kirsten cinema of Arizona voting. No and Doug Jones valley, Obama voting note, and Joe Manchin of West Virginia voting, no all because they are in purple states or red states, and they are afraid of losing their seats. If they vote for this dumb ass plans. Okay. Then we get to the actual Democrats, including no less than six different democratic senators voting on this thing. So how did they vote did any of them vote in favor of bringing the most important piece of legislation of our time to the floor did any of them vote in favor of this world changing world beating proposal to every single democrat voted presence? Everyone it won't be on record behind this thing. So they voted president president, which means basically, no, right? They voted present. And then they proclaimed that the real bad actor here. Obviously, I mean, come on the real bad actor, clearly is Mitch McConnell says that us for proposing this dumb stupid deal that nobody wants and looks terrible and his wait. Listen doesn't achieve what it seeks to achieve and pledges to destroy the American economy and the future of the United States. That's not on us. It's on Mitch McConnell for bringing it up to a vote. So Democrats bring this thing up, and then they're like, this is the most important thing we've ever done and McCall's like goodlettsville on it. Now known you drinking tricky McConnell. Now, you're not gonna catch us in the voting on it. And then they just run away like King, Arthur and Monty python and the holy grail. This runaway guy's runaway. Again, a second. We're going to get to the democratic response to the vote because it's really really funny. But I there's nobody on the planet like you. So why would you buy generic mattress built for everyone else? Helixsleep built asleep quiz. It takes two minutes to complete.
