Black Explorers

"On the list of history's great explorers too often, the names of black men and women have gone missing. Yet weather, striking out on their own or accompanying others. Black explorers and left their mark on land and sea. In even in space. In Fifteen, twenty eight. And African named Esteban was brought to Florida as a slave by Spanish conquistadors. When their expedition fail. The survivors explored the American southwest on foot for almost a decade. Esteban travel well over fifteen thousand miles. He saw Moore of the continent than almost any other people before. Listen incompetent. About four centuries later. Another African American explore. Would be one of the first Westerners to reach the far end of planet earth. Matthew Henson spent most of his adolescence at sea learning how to be a sailor. He was also quite interested in exploration, and found himself connected to Admiral Perry. Who is interested in finding North Pole? Hinson travels with him and they've made to the North Pole. Hinson had incredible skills and was recognized for those skills far later than Perry was. In the twentieth century black. Pioneers boldly explored even more daunting frontiers. In the nineteen eighties, the space program was very popular with the American people, and it became clear that there were no African Americans in the astronaut corps, so there was a push to recruit African Americans and in Nineteen, ninety-three guy in blue for became the first. African American to go into space. The second was Ronald McNair. Flew as a mission specialist in nineteen eighty-four. McNair even played his saxophone onboard. Sadly He died tragically two years later when the Challenger exploded shortly after takeoff. In Nineteen ninety-two another African American astronaut made history. It'll be making her first trip in space today and she's ready to fly. Mae Jemison spent more than a week orbiting Earth becoming the first African American woman in space. The Astronaut Corps something that Swiss considered quite a leap. These three African Americans were accomplished scientists and engineers they had passed through quite a rigorous set of assessments to become the first of their race to go into a place where your skills your intelligence, your courage and your commitment were all that mattered not erase. Contrary to what most of US learned in school? Not all great explorers were white men. These bowl pioneers were only a few of the African. Americans who overcame unimaginable odds and push forward. The boundaries of what is possible for black people.

How Does Saturn Work?

How Does Saturn Work?

"The Planet Saturn takes its name from a Roman God of agriculture and of all the planets revolve around our sun. It's cultivated if you will the greatest ring system by far shining rings filled with ice dust and rock orbit its equator. The whitest one called the phoebe ring has an outer edge. That's millions of miles away from Saturn itself. For comparison the average distance between Earth and our moon is a paltry two hundred thirty nine thousand miles or three hundred eighty four thousand kilometers once again. Astronomy PUTS THE HUMAN EGO IN CHECK. Saturn's rings get all the attention but we shouldn't ignore its other attributes the sixth planet in our solar system. It's also the biggest after Jupiter. Those two are in a league of their own. If you mushed every planet from Mercury to Neptune together Saturn and Jupiter would account for over ninety percent of the cumulative mass of that planetary mass but despite its immense size Saturn is the least dense planet in the sun's orbit and the spherical to. We'll need to look at. Its physical makeup to understand why research published in two thousand nineteen showed that a day on Saturday and lasts just ten hours thirty three minutes and thirty eight seconds. It's spin rate helps explain one of the ring. World's stranger qualities is he. Saturn is ten percent wider than it is tall. A difference of over seven thousand miles or nearly twelve thousand kilometers. Astronomers call that kind of disparity an equatorial bulge every planet in the solar system has one but Saturn's is the most extreme saturn rotates around its axis at a very high speed. Hence the brevity stays. And here's where density comes into play like. Jupiter Saturn is a gas giant such worlds predominantly consists of hydrogen and helium and whereas Earth is solid on. The outside gas. Giants are not they may however have hard intercourse now. Saturn is downright huge in terms of volume. Some seven hundred sixty four earth sized objects could fit inside of it and the planet is ninety five times as massive as our home world and yet relative to its size. Earth is eight times more dense. In fact water yes. Plain water is denser them Saturn although that doesn't mean the planet would float. It's not cohesive enough so thanks to its low. Low density zippy rotational. Speed Saturn's been deformed into a oblong world that looks kind of squished in profile Jupiter's southern hemisphere famously has an ongoing storm called the great. Red Spot Saturn's answer to. This is the great white spots which are periodic tempests that arise every twenty thirty Earth Years I detected in eighteen seventy six. These weather events are colossal scale ness as Cassini spacecraft spent thirteen productive years hovering around Saturn on December fifth of two thousand ten. It witnessed the most recent iteration of the great white spot phenomenon. The storm was about eight hundred miles by sixteen hundred miles long when it first began. That's about thirteen hundred twenty five hundred kilometers but over the next six months. The spot expanded Longitudinal early until it had looped itself around the planet in a gigantic circle. Some researchers think the great white spots might be part of a cycle that sees the outer layer Saturn's atmosphere slowly lose heat allowing the warm air from lower levels to burst upward. Meanwhile Saturn's North Pole. There's a cloud pattern shaped like giant hexagon. This pleasantly symmetrical jet stream spins counterclockwise measures about twenty thousand miles or thirty two thousand kilometers across and includes a hurricane. That's been swirling right over the poll ever since it was discovered back in Nineteen eighty-eight. Of course it's not the hexagon earned Saturday. A place on. Chucky festers T. shirt you know from rugrats anyway. The gas giant is most famous for the spectacular ring system encircling it a planetary rings aren't rare per se Jupiter Uranus and Neptune. Have the well yet. In terms of sheer scale network around Saturn is totally unrivaled. Most of the primary rings come with letter names. The closest one to Saturn is called the D ring which has an inner radius of about forty two thousand miles or sixty seven thousand kilometers a lot closer than our moon. It's surrounded by these C B A F G and earrings in that order by the way. The rings aren't arranged Alphabetically. Because the naming system reflects the dates of their discovery Abmc recited before the rest when measured from its outside edge. The earring showcases an impressive. Three hundred thousand mile radius or four hundred and eighty thousand kilometers. Or at least that looks impressive until you get to know the big bad fearing that. We mentioned earlier. I spotted in two thousand nine. This one was named after one of Saturn's moons untold trillions of ice rock dust particles. Make up these rings. Some bits are the size of a sugar grain. Others could probably Dwarf Your House in any case. The ring material is stretched. Remarkably thin Saturn's rings may be as thick as two miles or kilometers wide. Found just thirty two feet or ten meters wide so proportionately. The gas giants iconic rings thinner than a typical sheet of writing paper as noted by Astronomer. Phil plait whereas Saturn itself is probably around four point five billion years old. The age of its rings isn't as clear. Some scientists think that they were formed ten million to a hundred million years ago when an icy comet or some ice covered moons came too close to the planet. The visitor or visitors would have met a grisly end. Getting ripped to pieces by Saturn's gravity as those fragments collided they grew smaller and multiplied giving rise to the skinny but brilliant system. We all know today on the other. Hand a twenty. Nineteen paper argued that the rings might have originated at an earlier stage in the history of our solar system. We'll have to see how the debate unfolds as new evidence arises. There's lots about this planet that we're still learning in October of two thousand. Nineteen the international astronomical. Union heralded the discovery of twenty newfound moons orbiting the gas giant with these bodies added to the mix. There are now eighty two verified. Saturn moons altogether no other planet in the solar system has that many natural satellites not even mighty Jupiter. You can find Saturn's moons in around and beyond the ring system before Cassini was retired in two thousand seventeen it revealed that some of them gather clumps of ice and dust. From the Rings Saturn's Moon Titan is especially well-named it's our solar system second-biggest moon overall and it's dotted with seas lakes and rivers of liquid methane and pain. There's only one other body within the Sun's orbit that has standing pools of liquid that we know about. And here's a hint. You're sitting on it right now. Tighten is also noteworthy for having an atmosphere and it's theorized that there could be ice volcanoes that spew water instead of lava like Earth Saturn gets auroras at its poles. They're invisible to the unaided human eye. But the Cassini spacecraft and the Hubble Space Telescope have captured footage of them using infrared and ultraviolet

Askov Finlayson Creates Climate Positive Outerwear

"Hey Eric welcome to good together. We're excited to have you. Thanks Laura Beer. Super excited to Have you with US Eric. I Know Laura I told me about your company and I saw the park I was like Yes yes lizard into tomorrow. Wonderful inscription be with you. Thank you yeah. We're we're very excited to talk all things. Climate positive outerwear today. And I think you know for for Liza and hi this is a really and I mean I think this is GonNa be an interesting episode for anyone because we all need a jacket for the winter But I think there's been a lot of chatter recently about out You know innovations textiles innovations from companies. That are be cores that are really interested in providing more climate. I'm at positive solutions. I'm Eric I wonder if you could just introduce yourself and give us a little bit of information about your company. Sure was you said we're we're or a climate positive outdoor apparel company. We specialize in winter. Parkas were based here in Minneapolis Minnesota. Where where the need for good? Winter Outerwear is is a very real thing And we try to offer. In addition to our climate positive model with with the environment. Mind we also try to offer offer a really great value by bypassing the retail markup offering our products directly to consumers through ECOMMERCE and we have a flagship store herein when you're in our neighborhood of Minneapolis so We are awesome. I was very impressed with a mission statement. I was just reading last night Can you tell me a bit more about positive. By I think you are guys offset carbon emissions. There is a lot of layers of like doing good with your business model. Yeah we try to keep it pretty simple. I mean this was an idea that that evolved over the past few years We started did making our own products in twenty thirteen and as we started to experience success especially around a products that were of this place which we like to call all the north of the United States We wanted to think about how we could harness that momentum for good and so we began a program that we called in two thousand fifteen keeps the north cold and we began a giving program. We had a nonprofit partner. We felt really good about that and we were definitely having a positive impact but we really wanted to challenge ourselves to think about. Where are we actually keeping the cold on a on a net basis if you really did the math and it it causes to do a pretty thorough south audit and we took the intention of giving program in the beginning And this idea of north cold relief which we saw as a promise. We're making our customers and we wanted to really be able to back thaddeus and show our math in a in a transparent way and hold ourselves accountable to our customers and also to the planet and so what you know with the program evolved into is is every year doing a carbon footprint self audit doing everything we can to reduce our negative impacts through our our operations as as a business and then within qualifying that impact and turning it into one hundred ten percent net positive Financial commitment to organizations Asians are leaving their leading solutions to the climate crisis. So it's really at its at. Its most simple. It's a self imposed carbon tax and it's a way that we can you Hold ourselves accountable and and be able to stand behind the promise to our customers that were actually contributing on a net basis to the solution rather than being part of the problem. Okay and I had a question so what what would you say. Is the number one offender in your business right now as it relates to carbon emissions. Like where have you guys tried. Tried to focus. I mean I know it. Sounds like there's quite a few areas but what sleep. Maybe the top area. Well you know I'll give you a couple of examples of of what we've done one was just in our in our operations here or in Minneapolis. We've switched to one hundred percent sustainable power for all of our our offices in our operations here is a business at our headquarters now comes from wind energy actually all produced you're Minnesota And then the other big area of focus has been our supply chain and especially materials serials. We looked at some of the products. We were already making. And how could we could. We switch over the most Low Impact of materials hospitals. We switched some products to recycle materials. That previously hadn't been been made from like a virgin acrylic. Now is made from one hundred percent recycled material if you look at our our winter north hats but then when we introduce this parker this past year a chance to really start from scratch on a new product and and how could we embed all of the best decisions with climate impact in mind into the materials manufacturing the partners we were working with. And so if you look at the park where we make. It's one hundred percent recycled outer material. It's one hundred percent blue signed certified lining which will become one hundred percent recycled next year. We found the the fabric to be able to achieve that. And then the thing. I'm probably most proud of was material. Really innovation that we were able to achieve Throw partnership with three M which is a company base-year in Minnesota and it's the first time ever that they've offered one hundred percent recycled featherless down insulation And so you know to to have have a real material. Innovation in in terms of sustainability in one hundred percent recycled in our first year was an accomplishment. We were pretty proud of yeah. Yeah that's amazing and I. I didn't know that three M was based out there so that that's good to know and I know in the past. They've been major innovators in various. Sort of No chemical engineering and things like that But I one of the things that you mentioned that I want to kind of dive into is talking about materials specifically that make up the the Parka Arca and one question that we get often on brightly is around you know the usage of animal based materials so oftentimes for Parkas arcus this equates to feather feathers being used down and so I wondered if you could speak a little bit too Why you guys chose to not go the feather row? How on maybe what your point views on that? Yes so you know. It's there's sort of two parts. There's one there is I think the ethical question which you've raised which you know I it relates to with the installation choice. Do you use you know feather down inflation versus a federalist we've chosen to go with there's also a number of companies that use for Roths We also chosen not to use for our materials. That very much isn't ethical choice for us and I would say on the down. It's a combination of the two. You know there's there's the ethical will impact of how those feathers are sourced But also for us it was really just actually a performance questions when we began our research on this product. We went to the person who I know that knows more about Winter Outerwear and surviving and thriving in harsh winter conditions His name is will stegar. He's a legendary Arctic and Antarctic explorer. A based here in Minnesota someone. I've known many years he led the first confirmed dogs. That expedition to the North Pole. The first crossing of Antarctica so just really in the all time top echelons of exploration and and so we went up to his homestead in in northern Minnesota and went through his expedition archives and went through all of his gear and he'd actually always used Three M synthetic attic insulation in his archive of back. Then of course it wasn't available. One hundred percent recycled that's new to us this year but he always chosen not to go down as we asked him why that was and he felt that the you know the risk of down especially when you're in those type of conditions environments is that as soon as it gets wet it loses its loft and it it it stops being as warm and so for him. It was very much just a performance question that he said Synthetic inflation was every bit as is warm and actually was more versatile and served his needs better. So that's really where we went down the path of making that choice based on just research much of what performs the best

RIBICOFF HOFFA's helping organize the event near the North Pole. It's a project that these about bringing everyone all the countries all the sportsman all the people people together on one topic clench global warming is rapidly melting. Arctic Sea ice so the event is being billed as the first and last hockey game into be played at the North Pole. A slew of organizations and sports figures are involved the UN Environment Program is helping lead the effort. It was spearheaded by Slava Fetisov a legendary Russian hockey player. Mike Richter formerly of the New York Rangers is on the roster as our players from Russia Canada Scandinavian countries and beyond Rybakov says it provides an opportunity for each well known athlete to learn first hand about melting Arctic ice. Then they can give interviews and share the information and with others leeann investor in the old gun-free boat. What is going on globally for this game. The ultimate goal is to bring attention to the climate crisis.

Climate change: Melting Arctic ice

"Arctic Sea. Ice is one one of the most dramatic indicators of the change in climate some months the ice cover on the Arctic Ocean is about half of what it was decades ago and its thickness has shrunk substantially changes in the ice may also mean a host of other changes in the Arctic system and around the globe to better understand the scientists. I just have frozen an icebreaker alongside and Arctic ice flow that they will absorb for a whole year. And that's where our reporter Ravenna chaotic. Caught up with them out on an the ice floe about five degrees from the North Pole. A bunch of scientists are setting up equipment. It's part of a project called mosaic or the multidisciplinary drifting observatory for the study of Arctic climate climate. And the primary question. They're trying to answer is what are the causes of diminishing Arctic ice and what are the consequences ocean physicists. Tim Stanton stand surrounded by boxes of tools and equipment next to a hole in the ice about fifteen miles from where the mosaics chef is frozen in. Good here dry hairdryer. Well it's a trickle. Would he he got frizzy here. That's for sure. It's about eighteen degrees Fahrenheit and the heat gun is for warming up electrical connectors actors on a science buoy. Stanton is in the middle of a grueling eight hour process to install the buoy. It'll operate independently out here throughout the year. Collecting team data from all sorts of scientific bells and whistles that hang below it in the water flux package mounts on and that's what Beige is the transport of heat. Salt Mamane plugged back in the water column. Here's why Stanton's interested in those things as more sea ice melts in the summertime. It's contributing fresher water to the top of the ocean the salty ocean water which sits lower. Because it's more dense can create a barrier that prevents the fresher water from going down if that top water is trapped near the surface surface. Stanton thinks that can absorb a lot more heat from the sun and lead to even more melting of the ice you can get these Frisch WOM- liars that with a little bit of wind comes along. Does a little bit of mixing really mounts the heck out of the is. He thinks this might play an important role in why the disappearing as fast does it is while Stanton is asking questions about things that are going on. Below the ice other scientists are looking at things going. On above it like Jesse Cremation. WHO's out on the ice testing gene? A device that collects tiny particles from the atmosphere called aerosols. Ampler to say no. We're not talking about the ones in hairspray. Aerosol balls can be dust pollen or fungi and they're the seeds that clouds need to grow and in the Arctic scientists thing that they can also come from tiny organisms in the water like bacteria. Algae less ice on the ocean could mean more aerosols getting blown from the water into the atmosphere and CD more clouds by hypothesis from open water sources. We get generation of these particles from microbes and the ocean. There's a lot that signed to still WANNA find out about clouds in the Arctic. But one thing they know is that they're important for regulating leading temperature like a thermostat depending on the season whether the clouds are over water or ice and the features of the clouds they can wind up cooling or warming the earth below slowdown that affects. How much heat can basically help melt the ice or it can actually reflect sunlight from the CIA so it has a big role in controlling? How much we we have here creaming and Stanton to among hundreds of scientists from different disciplines? Who are trying to better understand? How different parts of this changing region work how? The atmosphere interacts the CIS how the ocean interacts with the ice The ecosystem the biogeochemical processes. That's Matthew shoop an atmospheric scientist and one of the coordinators of the expedition addition. So why do scientists need to know all this. This whole project is aimed at improving our models. When shoop says models he means the computer simulation and scientists use to get estimates for things like how much the earth could warm in the next fifty years the better? You reflect reality in the simulations the better prediction you'll get but because so little is known about the Arctic system. shoop says that the predictions for how it will respond to climate. Change vary a lot. The Arctic is a place where the models agree. The least so that tells us that we're missing something improving. The models will help forecast things like when the Arctic Ocean might have. Its first ice free summer how quickly the globe is going to warm. As as a whole and how the melting greenland ice sheet will add to global sea level rise by observing. How all the little pieces of the system fit together over the next year scientists hope they it can bring that big picture into clear? Focus for N._p._R.. News I'm Ravenna.

Earth's Last Magnetic Pole Flip Happened Much More Slowly Than Previously Thought

"Any study suggests earth's magnetic poles may take far longer to flip than previously. I thought a new analysis reported in the journal science advances shows. The process may take up to twenty two thousand years to complete. That's more than twice as long as the nine thousand years. He's previously estimated this growing evidence that earth's magnetic poles are about to flip the north magnetic pole will become south and the south magnetic pole will become north last time. This happened with some seven hundred and seventy thousand years ago when it does happen. It'll be the first magnetic field polarity reversal in modern times times and that raises some serious questions about how today's technology with coq with the change to us me mortals on the surface of this revolving planet around the sun first magnetic field seemed steady and true reliable enough to navigate by your largely hidden from daily life less your pilot. The magnetic field drifts waxes awesome wayne's constantly when i'm flying one of the first things i do when i get in the cockpit of an aircraft is to readjust the cockpits compass to the latest readings for true north both for years. The magnetic north pole was wandering around pats of northern canada but more recently it's been careering towards siberia which recently forced the global positioning positioning system which underlies old model navigation updated software sooner than expected to account for the shift on average the magnetic pole shifts and reverses versus. That's polarity roughly every hundred and fifty thousand years or so that with the last one occurring some seven hundred and seventy thousand years ago with long jude for the knicks flip and there are some early signs that a possible paul reversal may be about to occur the accelerating movement of the north magnetic pole is one sign another other is something known as the south atlantic anomaly a weed pad of the south atlantic ocean between brazil and africa compass needles go nuts pointing south instead of north north and it's not just compass needles affected the south atlantic anomaly region causes earth ina van allen radiation belt to move closer to the earth surface dipping down onto just two hundred kilometers in altitude this results in an increase flocks of energetic particles in this region exposing orbiting spacecraft the high than usual levels of radiation listen effect the international space station required extra shielding just deal with this problem nashes reported that modern laptops of crushed aboard space shuttle flights as they a pass through the anomaly and the hubble space telescope doesn't do any observations while it's passing through the anomaly whether or not the south atlantic anomaly really does mean a polls colds are about the flip polarity is yet to be saying the problem is scientists have only a very limited understanding as to exactly why the film reversals occur or how they happen now new research by university of wisconsin madison geologist brad singer suggests the most recent short reversal seven hundred and seventy thousand years ago took at least twenty the two thousand years to complete that several times longer than previously thought and the results further color the question some controversial findings that some polar reversals could occur within inhuman lifetime than you analysis is based on advances in measurement capabilities at a global survey of lava flows ocean sediment at arctic ice coast rose providing a more detailed look at a turbulent time for earth's magnetic field of a millennia. The planet's magnetic food weakened partly shifted stabilized the game and then finally reversed for good to the orientation we know today. The new results provide a clearer m._o. Nuanced picture of reversals at a time when some scientists believe we may maybe experiencing the early stages of paul reversal and you other researchers dispute the very notion of a present day. Paul reversal singer says unless you have the complete accurate accurate in high resolution record of water filled reversal really's like it would be difficult to discuss the mechanics of generating one. We know that earth's magnetic field is produced by the planet's molten alton liquid metallic out of core as it spins around the solid. I and inigo generating powerful electromagnetic currents. What's coda jet dynamo this year dynamic in a creative field. That's most stable going through roughly the geographic north and south poles but the field shifts in weakened significantly during reversals. We know this because <unk> asni rocks formed typically other volcanic lava flows or a sediments being deposited on the sea floor they leave a record the magnetic field the time they were created and geologists can survey this global record piecing together. The history of magnetic fields going back millions of years. Their record is clearest for the most recent reversal that one seven hundred seventy thousand years ago for the current analysis singer and colleagues looked at lava flows from chile to haiti hawaii the caribbean and the canary islands and they collected samples from these latter flows of several field seasons lava flows are ideal records of the magnetic field they have lots of iron bearing ring minerals and as cool and solidify they lock in the direction of the planet's magnetic field the research is combined magnetic field readings and radio acid type dating samples from seven lava flow sequences to recreate the magnetic field over a span of seventy thousand years centered on las reversal they found the final reverse was quite quick by geological standards less than four thousand years but it had been preceded by an extended period of instability included excursions which are temporary partial reversals the polls stretching back another eighteen thousand years. That's more than twice as long as suggested by other studies which claimed reversals wrap up within about nine thousand years the lava flow the data was corroborated by magnetic readings from the seafloor which provided more continuous but less precise source of data than lab iraq's single and colleagues also used at arctic ice core samples apples to track the deposition of beryllium which is produced by cosmic radiation colliding with molecules in the atmosphere. You say when the magnetic reversing weakens allowing more radiation in from space to hit the atmosphere producing more beryllium since humanity began recording the strength of the earth's magnetic field. It's actually decrease in strength by about five percent century century and his records like singing shows. A weakening field seems to be a precursor to an eventual field reversal although it's far from clear that a reversal is imminent reversing planetary magnetic food would significantly affect navigation as well as satellite and terrestrial communications but if the current studies right it means society would have many generations to adapt to what would be a lengthy period of magnetic instability stewart gary.

I Really WanNa know what you thought of the cats trailer. I'm starting to lose the La- grip on the road pure man like I don't know. I don't really know what my purpose and role is in this culture if this is what we're doing wow if brought you to your knees. I'm a fake animal that sings. I don't need me. You'll need my takes like you know what I'm saying like retiring. I'm I'm just saying that like I have nothing to offer. Cats culture cats culture yeah. What's what is it? What are your dog guy? You know wish that Milton in could sing no did I need to see James Corden as a cat various other people as cats. I I don't know who this movie is for other than intense fans of the extremely long running winning Broadway musical cats which is utterly mediocre musical by all accounts not really in the in the Pantheon of the great examples of all time memories. JAMMIES is okay but you know what what else. I don't know they've assemble levels <unk>. Dave assembled a lot of talent. This has like all time stinker at non it. I think it has all time film twitter meam Lord written all over and we find out that film twitter is not the real world. I think three hundred dollars yes. That's the big question is is the trailer hit on Thursday. Everybody acted as if they got a star is born but in reverse yeah they could that they were they thought was going to be bad and it was actually worse than they thought it was going to be and they they left at the chance like a cat right to make fun of it can can I just read some of the names of of the characters lease due.

Yeah I know about that guy little known facts about cat. Isn't there something Jelica yes little known. Fact about cats is Andrew. Lloyd Webber was nine years old when he wrote it surprising that we're not but <hes> so you guys are. I'm not anticipating this movie not that much snow. Would you say you're anticipating it less than Topgun Maverick. Yeah I mean I think that if if you could if I could get in a time machine and they were like do you WanNa go back and kill Hitler right or you know Bassy Alexander the Great Cross the Russian steps I would like can I just go ahead fifteen months to see top gun to in the span of five minutes you have retired fulltime cultural commentary and you have stated that rather than kill Hitler. You would like like to go forward nine months. The high stakes here. I can't imagine listen people's choices of their own choices it I could not. I can't imagine sitting through this movie. Here's the here's the issue with the realistic take on cats. What's the genitals where are they? What's going on with them? You see I'm watching trailing arm like I'm expecting to see a para harakat nuts. Are you not you are because it's a realistic moved in this. Why are we doing it? Can they wear pants. Why are they not wearing pants? WHO's Coordi- character Busta for bus drivers got like a little petticoat yeah? He's starting it some wearing pants summer. Not What is the deal.

"It seems that quite often hear on the news room we've had bad news for the North Pole about the dwindling ice cap there before long time the sea ice around Antarctica seem to have resisted decline now new research shows there's been massive loss of life there in only a few years and scientists are trying to understand why the news rooms Tom Melville has more sea ice works is part of the world climate control system reflecting the sun's rays back into space so they're not absorbed into the ocean thus raising temperatures it's one of the reasons that so much alarmed at the loss of sea ice in the arctic less ice means global temperatures may rise faster but in Antarctica sea ice has been a lot more robust and has even increased over the last forty years a fact which has scientists puzzled but that took place in resilience changed abruptly in two thousand and fourteen as Dr Claire Parkinson of NASA has revealed in your research in that year there was a precipitous decline in Antarctic sea ice a little bit more than two million square kilometers decrease occurred in this period from two thousand fourteen to two thousand seventeen so essentially a two year period in the arctic there has been a little more than two million square calamities increase but it took over three decades to get that large just as we don't know why Antarctic sea ice held up the circle research is now to and understand what caused such a large decline in only a few years Dr Parkinson again it's much more puzzling and there are studies done

"I'm John cer-? Bob Zimmerman keeps the website behind the black from the surface of the planet earth. We're headed to the surface of the planet Mars. The probe is called insight and there's been trouble, but perhaps Bob as what is insight and hasn't been fixed. Insight was the land of that NASA put on Mawes in the fall, it has two basic instruments, and both with designed to look at the interior of the Mosher planet, one was the size Mamata, which they had installed and has been taking readings now for the last three months. That's great. The other was a probe that they had a drill called the mole that they were going to drill that heat sensitive down fifteen feet or so, so it could get the internal temperature of Moses globe. Get a sense of what the interior of MAs is like, well, they started to drill. They got about I think about a foot down and the drill wouldn't work anymore would work. But. It wouldn't gain any ground. They couldn't go anymore. They didn't know exactly what it was. They've been trying all kinds of things for the last two months. Well, they've now come up with a decision. They wanna get look at the drill. And this is interesting, the structure that the drill a ham really hammer drill. It's like a pounding Hamma, the structure that it's in the camera, that's an insight, Tennessee, the drill because of the structure. And so they want to use the robot on the insight to lift that structure up without disturbing the drill itself, the hammer drill so they can look at it. See what the issue is. They also think that possibly the soil is very different than expected here, and that would be a component in preventing it from going on the ground technical, two questions. He had this is a German made trill. By the way, one, what if they build such the camera can't take a picture of it? That's really questionable in my mind that really questionable. And the second question is. The issue the slow, they say the soil have enough friction to help the drill stay, and, you know, you're banging nail in if the if the nail doesn't grip the would it's gonna pop up it won't go down. You need to have the material around the drill hole place. So each time not down at games, and they're saying that doesn't have enough. But my question then is they didn't do enough. There's something fishy about all I wonder about the design either way. Let's hope it works. John picking off to the Martian, North Pole. There's a really cool graphic at on behind the black, we're looking at the fact that the Martian, North Pole is seasonal. Bob is the Marsh North Pole is attractive for colony as say the south pole of the moon. No, no, no. I would not put a colony on the polls of the MAs at all the reason we're focused on the poles of the moon is the only places you can see water and the environment of the environment is not much different than all places on the moon. But on the polls, you have the opportunity to get not only water, but a lot of solar energy. So that's why that advantageous on the moon. But no, the, the polls on not a place to build, but they might be a place do significant amount of mining, for resources that use extra colonies elsewhere on the planet, and that's to extend the focus of the pulse. What I did on behind the blacks today is that put spotted some interesting pictures in the MAs off at all. Live from the North Pole. And so, I did some research and I talked to one of the scientists can't candies Hansen, who is requesting these photos. And so did a focus on the motion, North Pole and what is going on? Right. This minute is that the North Pole of Mawes is leaving winter, and it's now entering spring and during the winter on the North Pole of Mawes and on the south pole of Mawes, you get a cap.

So I should say as far as the title goes, this was released as emperor of the North Pole, but then apparently was re released later on as emperor of the north because somebody thought it was going to sound like a Christmas story, Lee Marvin, and Ernest borgnine digging it out on the polar express, I would be down for. Yeah. I'd love the whole term emperor of the North Pole like here, you are the emperor of nothing. You know, you are the Lord of the wasteland. There's nothing there for you at all. And that's their title of, you know, this, this high rank king, they mentioned king of road, another point. Of course, I'm thinking, you know, the song of that, but, okay, it's a great title. And then emperor of the north doesn't really have the same thing. But I, I don't know. Did you? Guys think Christmas movie when you sent emperor the North Pole. No, because I like sought title when I first got into that. I have zero idea zero expeditious to what it was about. Like I read that script cold, because I always read this, Chris before, I watched the movie, and I've read that script would not knowing anything and just was like, oh, Hello. This is all coming together. Nicely mean even enter the north what the title I was thinking, like some sort of, like Yukon. Get hunt sort of. Okay. But like I was not in the least disappointed.

"Fatima was once on a voyage on the Atlantic Ocean to new Lampeter when his ship was blown off course. And he found himself in a strange place that was shrouded in folks, not knowing where they were aware only that he and his sailors were lost. He and his crew abandoned the ship. In a small boat. They moved across the mysterious waters. After a time. They reached the middle of these waters when they saw many white birds. They reached land only after their provisions were almost exhausted. They had landed at the foot of all Jubal Lama the gleaming mountain, but they were told by the Berber inhabitants of the area that they should not approach it. They did not know why this was but obediently turned to the north of it avoiding the place. As they moved along the shore, they met someone who asked them how it is. And now inquisitive about the mountain. They asked about the warning that they had received about old Jubal Alana. The people told them that it contained a mass of venomous serpents that always seemed to strangers to be gleaming objects made of beautifully colored stone such strangers were there by deceived into drawing near and when they did the snakes would kill them. Above the myth of the mountain eligible Allama from a dictionary of African mythology by herald showed a pretty frightening description. But Michael there are other ancient readings of the North Pole aren't there which painted something? Rather more alluring I sort of paradise on earth northern Eden. That's right. They have in common that they recognized at the North Pole is sacred in some way and the Hindu religion. For example. Traditionally has viewed mount may rue as being similarly a mountain at the North Pole, and what these share in common is at the mountain is actually sacred because it's able to join the earth with the heavens. The idea of the North Pole is a gateway to a mythical world perhaps deep inside the earth was something that was explored in an early book published in sixteen sixty six by British duchess named Margaret cavern dish. The book was called the description of the new. World cooled the blazing world. And it describes how female heroine is kidnapped and taken on a ship to the North Pole. Michael you see her book is one of the first and more significant pieces of polarizing, right? Why why does this book stand out here? I do here is a prominent noblewoman Kavindele, she's asserting the North Pole is being a female world. So this in a sense is a almost like a precursor to the work of Mary, Shelley, Mary, Shelley, Hurok Frankenstein. Monster ends up raving about in the Arctic doesn't it say until we did this program. I never really thought of that as being particularly significant. And I think I think it is because for Margaret Cavendish as for Mary Shelley the North Pole in is a place into which the protagonists are blown off course or of shipwrecked. So the key though is that they represent something beyond the poll in each case. There is either a place or a morality that goes beyond. So the relationship is one of dialogue at the North Pole. It's a place that's always being negotiated. And that is what gives it the character that it has for centuries that it is a place of understanding where we begin to see our own places human beings. So this is fascinating this early piece because it's bad as you were saying feminine North Pole. But it also makes me think how today in the popular imagination. In popular fiction. The North Pole is still right up there the importance of Father, Christmas, and Santa Claus. But if you just think about modern fiction, the Phillip Pullman trilogy his dark materials, this is all about getting to the North Pole, isn't it? Yes. I think one of the things that's very striking about the most powers that it's attracted both a kind of utopian dystopia in literature, art and other forms of representation. And so just as Michael's talked about the North Pole being feminized. You also get representations of the North Pole as a kind of ice Queen. And so it's very familiar trope. Both in the article, the Antarctic to feminizing these spaces, and that often then provides a kind of context or perhaps a pretext for these very very manly explorers to lift the veil of the Arctic or to push ever further northwards towards this magical ultimate space we've strayed into the world admits and fiction, but let's get back to the history of expeditions to the Arctic north indigenous communities like the shook she and other related northern communities across Russia's northern Arctic regions, they've always use the Arctic as a hunting ground and in the seventeen hundreds they were joined by Europeans and Americans at first they were going north on whaling ships, lucrative ventures. Sometimes used to fund these trips to the Arctic region, but then in the nineteenth century, there was a sort of Arctic fever for exploration that developed in Europe and the United States, partly drew. In by design, not just to reach the North Pole. But also to uncover the fabled northwest passage, which it was hoped would allow shipping to sail from the North Atlantic to the Pacific cows, tell us about a couple of the most famous explorers at this time, probably the most famous British expedition was the Franklin expedition the eighteen forties. This is the John Franklin. John Franklin ships Tara, and the Erebus get infamously stuck and then it's really a very sorry indeed solder tale of survival impossible cannibalism. But ultimately, fortunately, the party doesn't make it. And then what it a malicious in the aftermath of their disappearance is an extraordinary best of exploratory and expeditionary activity in the hope that the party may indeed be recovered that proves not to be the case. And then if you will towards the end of the nineteenth century. We have famous Norwegian explorer Fridtjof Nansen what you have in short is a nineteenth century dominated by exploration and commercial intrigue. And importantly, people also become household names. And so when exhibitions are held these are immensely popular. And I think it's it's easy to forget that actually only one hundred and fifty years ago, there was still enormous uncertainty about what the North Pole what the central Arctic Ocean may yet have to offer. And if you compare those nineteenth and twentieth century expeditions with now well overseas about human, endurance. But it was it will say about the technology the kit. Yes. He gets utterly bizarre. And you get into the beginning of the twentieth century because you have American newspaper moguls and baking soda, magnets. Designing these hot air balloons and various contraptions that they think are going to get them to the North Pole. And then you've got Russian expeditions and Italian expeditions living on tiny islands in the article desperate to be the first. So it really does turn into a bit of a farce. But let's not forget the first undisputed on foot expedition to reach the North Pole didn't happen until nineteen sixty nine, but the biggest technological advantage. We have now satellite navigation, satellite communication, and that's the big difference. The actual materials that we use. And the way that we get there in the techniques and the methods actually haven't changed very much. That's nonsense. And the early explorers the one thousand nine hundred could probably walk into might enter my expedition and recognize is what we're doing. And what we're using it wouldn't be too. I'm familiar, it's typical of the elusive nature the North Pole. And even the question of which explorer got their first is still uncertain. Michael Hughes the fast person to claim that they made it to the North Pole. Probably would be Robert Peary. Surely, there must have been people before that who was cook quite famously claimed that he so he was periods. Great rival as right? They were. Are we talking about eight nine? So you've got this kind of extrordinary period when these two men with rather large egos loggerheads with on another claiming that they got their first. And so it's a really great example of fake news. Here you have Cookham Pirie accusing one another repeatedly in their supporters of fake news. So for example, photographic evidence. Taken by each expedition in terms of look, this is us at the North Pole is accused by the other side of being doctored and faked and so everybody involved in this feud is calling into question both visual as well. As textual evidence. Dr is copy trusted photos can't be trusted. Lies are circulating throughout public. Culture. Sorry. Let's be clear. This is still an argument that hasn't been fully settled. So if you go to the explorers club, New York, for example, which is the home of American exploration, perhaps they still display one of periods. Sledges and call him the first man to set foot at the North Pole. Somebody tried to recreate this journey and said, actually, they could have done it. There's being fairness expeditions and books and investigations say this is still a hot topic, and there's still room for people to go out there and prove conclusively one way or another. It's certainly not an argument. That's over one thing that doesn't get talked about quite much is the story of the enumerate another indigenous guides on these journeys and what their involvement was in reaching the pole and how they were treated by these explorers. Michael. Well, that's right. That's a very profound importance for the communities up an Italian the north of Greenland, partly because they hosted Perry and other sometimes for many. Winters at a time. So there was a cost to these communities for providing hundreds of dogs to make the journeys and the logistics there a bit sacrifices. So there's a very interesting kind of complex historical power-play going on now Perry and cook, you know, they subscribe to very strong imperial theories. They thought that the North Pole meant this was where the races and peoples of the world met, and yet they understood that they would achieve this only with the help of indigenous peoples. Well, there'd be many expeditions to the North Pole since then and still are today and Felicity in 2018, you let a group of ten women on an expedition to the North Pole. Tell us why it was so special well half of the women were from Arabic nations around the Gulf states and the other half were from various countries across Europe. And. I think it was a way of demonstrating that the Arctic and the North Pole isn't the concern of just one particular geographical region anymore. But it's also quite special because time is running out for its petitions to the North Pole. Arguably is widely believed that the last full distance ski expedition to the North Pole that's one that goes from the coast of the Arctic Ocean to the North Pole happened in two thousand fourteen and people believe that will probably prove to be the law. So now because say much the is now say hazardous and so now people saying they're chasing loss not first anymore. And I think that gives this whole subject and immediacy that perhaps we don't get in discussions around climate change, particularly in the Arctic. This is happening. Now, this is not theoretical in a few decades. And on that note, let's pause for a moment. Because in part to we're going to look in greater depth the effects of climate change on the North Pole and consider how it may bring tougher living conditions for some but possibly new opportunities. Others also the geopolitical argument over which nation could have the right to claim the North Pole as their territory stay with us. We'll be back after this short break.

So let's talk about this polish Lewis talk about the polar shift. Okay. Are you following this? No, I've only heard you talking about. Okay. So the polar shifts is something I followed for about twenty years and just just lightly, and I have absolutely no idea. What any of it means? Okay. I know what it could mean. I know what theories are from the past. But I I'm not a, you know, I'm not a sky is falling on this one. I just find it fascinating. So the polls the north south pole. It's not fixed and it drifts every year. Okay. And it drifts because we have a iron core. And then a molten core around that that iron core. Well, that's kind of like, you know, taking copper wire and wrapping it around. Iron and then taking a magnet. I mean is creating energy magnetic force. So you get your polls north and south because because the world is is molten just beneath the surface, it can shift k and it can it can move and it can make the polar magnetic field move. The magnetic field generally stays in the same kind of area. It has you know in the past few hundred years been as North Pole has been as low as Ohio believe it or not. But it's been a long time, and it takes centuries to move, blah, blah, blah. Well, the polar shift is moving rapidly. In fact, it's now last year it moved fifty five kilometers. It's now I think in Siberia the North Pole. If you're standing on the North Pole. You're actually south of the magnetic pole K because the magnetic pole that rewrite south everything everything. Yeah. So you're south if you're standing at the the, you know, where the pole is, you know, the red white striped one, right? If you're at your at Santa's village, right, right? You are actually at the at the North Pole at that moment because of the magnetic changes correct now the problem is is that our GPS is run with magnetic north. So the further it can it. It's built to be able to withstand stuff, but they had to go in and have an emergency. Reset this last year because it's moving so fast. I mean, nobody's I don't think anybody's seen it move fifty five kilometers before. So it's moving so fast and doesn't show any sign of slowing down. Well, our GPS had to be reset because otherwise we'd all be driving in the Pacific Ocean at some point. Because it's it's all off. I find that fascinating. Now, here's the part that they think is this is. These are just theories, they think that this has happened before that the polls got so far out of whack that. They that north and south actually was east and west, okay? So north and south would be up and down on a map and east and west would be no east and west would be up and down in north and south would be left and right on a map zarre bizarre. And they think that because everything is sitting on this molten core that at some point. And this may have been why the the continents broke up its some point the thing got so far out of whack that it actually the mantle slid on that molten core. And so what was at the equator was now north and south which would explain why you have like a fossilized. Tropical.

"North Pole working diligently all year long to make presents for kids all over the world. But just where is it colder at the North Pole or the south pole? Interestingly enough, the south pole why because the south pole sits on a mountain, which makes it colder then at sea level where the North Pole is. And speaking of cold and snow, why does it never snow in some places? You say simple. It never gets cold enough. Well, that's true in some spots, especially those closest to the equator the climate is always to warm, but think about this Matt Kilimanjaro the highest mountain in Africa is just next to the blistering hot equator, but it's top is always covered with snow. Why? Because it's so tall that the hired celebration gets from the arts surface that Calder it gets making the temperature below freezing. Even at the equator, and here's one for you. What happened at Silverlake Colorado in nineteen twenty one. Amazingly, it snowed. Seventy six inches. You say. So what here's what it snowed? Seventy six inches all in one day. And it was not even winter that incredible snowfall occurred in the middle. As of April while an almost as bad was a snowfall that hit Thompson pass Alaska on December the twenty ninth nineteen fifty five over sixty two inches once again all in one day. Unbelievable. And here's one last bit of snow trivia, why is it that snow sometimes squeaks? Yeah. That's what I said squeaks. Well, when the temperature is twenty degrees Fahrenheit, or colder. Soft wet snowflakes turned into hard rough ice crystals and the squeaking that you hear. When you step in the snow is the sound of thousands of tiny crystals.

Coming from a mile away that time. Okay. So we learn about elves in the North Pole who build toys for Santa. They were Santa's workshop and one Christmas while Santa is delivering presence at an orphanage a baby crawls into a sack of toys, and he accident takes the baby with him to the North Pole the baby remained silent for the entirety of the rest of the trip. Then other me. One of the elves adopts the baby his name is Papa elf hot. What does like, hi? My name's daddy. No, I'm single. I have no children. Like that. And the baby gets named buddy.
