"northrop grumman" Discussed on Main Engine Cut Off
"Increases the complexity, maybe a little bit because these things have to be integrated, but it reduces complexity significantly in other areas that probably nets out with a less complex vehicle, overall, reducing costs and freeing up money to be pushed towards the landing systems for twenty twenty four. So it certainly seems like even back. In July, they knew north of would be building this habits at. They knew it'd be based on Cygnus, which north of Grubman has a lot of history behind. And it definitely seems like they were trying to get all these ducks in the row so that they know how much money they have, and whatever money they had left over for twenty twenty was sent north of grauman's way to design, and then if they can get ahead on some build out tasks or Maybe, they designed in a way that they're already on. Build out tasks. That covers their work through two thousand twenty, which means we now have lander contracts through February, we have Element being worked on already by MAC czar, and now we have the designed for the habitat, being worked on through the end of two thousand twenty, so whatever money that NASA had in twenty, twenty four, the gateway four artists that money is spent. They've done all the budget work they can, and now they have to begin the battle for, and they began this a little while back. Sure, but they're going to be battling for that twenty twenty one budget, which is when they're going to need to see these significant budget increases to be able to do any of these plans in the way that they are currently talking about them. That's GONNA be a tough battle. Quite honestly, we're going to be fighting that battle through. A pandemic caused economic crash a massive justice. Movement. As we talked about front a presidential election that is shaping up to be quite. Quite a show if you will obviously, everyone always says this presidential election is the most important of your lifetime, so the stakes are always ramped up by everybody, but this is a particularly contentious year, if for presidential politics. Around the DM to launch as we talked about on the last show, there was some bipartisan politicking happening. There was some compliments being thrown back and forth by administrators across different presidential administrations across different party lines. So. It doesn't necessarily indicate that Nasr's plans are going to be thrown into upheaval, because like we talked about the Biden campaign, who is the other presidential candidate running against Donald Trump? The Biden campaign had this in which the two people talking about space there, Bill Nelson former senator. Big in the space industry in terms of policy and Charlie Bolden de last administrator of NASA. They both said they liked the current path that NASA is on. They like the plans that are in motion, even though it differs from what was done over the previous administration that does show good sign that maybe the presidential part isn't as impactful. But the budget certainly is, we've got you know. It's really tough budget time for NASA particularly. And with all these other influences. Shake out and neither does NASA and we're probably not going to find out for a very long time. Because it's it's GonNa. Be a while until we get a budget for that twenty twenty one time period, but NASA certainly set the stage with lander contracts with gateway contracts. And everything else they could line up and twenty twenty. They've set the stage for a big twenty twenty one budget a very telling twenty twenty one budget. So before we dive into the leadership of NASA shakeup. That's been happening lately. I need to say a very huge.

All right so this is a nice way to tie all these. Together a couple of weeks back we talked about Douglas. Who was the head of human space flight at NASA and he resigned. Schwartz forced out after some sort of infraction that he made on the contracting around those artists. Landers sounds like he was trying to work with Boeing to make them have a more competitive bid. Did something wrong had to get out? It was a pretty bizarre time for Doug Lavera at NASA. He was here for just a few months. There was almost a longer gap before he was at the head of human spaceflight. There was almost longer gap of not having a head of human spaceflight as long as he was the head of human spaceflight, so it was a very bizarre time period because it was July that bill. Gerston Meyer. The previous head of human spaceflight left it took until. I think it was like November December. When Doug Lavera came in, and then he was out. By late May. So a very bizarre less than a year for NASA there, but beyond that after that bizarre departure after the epic triumph of space x Demo to. The successor for Doug Lavoro was named this week and it's Kathy leaders. She was the longtime manager of the commercial. Crew Program since twenty fourteen. She's been leading that she has been a calm and steady voice from the NASA side on that program all along. Increasingly tired as the delays mounted, and you could tell she was just working really hard to make this thing happen but then we finally saw demo to launch with astronauts head up to the Isis and the joy you could see in Kathy leaders was infectious in some of these press conferences, so she has been the steward of that program for the last six years. She has been through the ups and downs. She has seen what worked there. She's seen what. Didn't work. What still isn't working in the case of Boeing. She's learned a lot in that program. She's learned a lot about how to lead programs like that. And she is now going to be elevated out of the commercial crew program, and to be in charge of all human space flight at NASA, that contains the Isis, program the commercial crew program that contains all of artists. It is a huge job.
SpaceX wins NASA contract to send cargo to lunar Gateway with new Dragon XL craft
"NASA SPACEX are working together on the the freaking Moon Orbiter Right. So we have the same coming up in two thousand twenty four. Nasa is going to be landing people on the Moon in twenty twenty four the artist program and they have a lunar orbiter. It's a station. It's like a waystation that astronauts will go to before they go down to the moon so they'll dock with this thing and then they'll get resupplied get whatever they need to get done you know. Grab a bite. E whatever they gotta do and then they'll go down to the surface of the Moon in when they're done with the surface stuff whenever they're done with their silencing they're gonNA go back up to this orbital laboratory and do what they gotta do and then come back home back to Earth which is amazing. So that being said NASA has partnered with SPACEX AND SPACEX. Going to be making a capsule that goes to the resupply station or on the Moon. The deep space resupply. It's called the cargo dragon. Xl Cargo Dragon Xl. It's insane it's insane. This is actually happening right so we WANNA make sure that everybody knows what's going on the Dragon. Xl has been revealed and it is huge huge news for the Lunar Gateway. Because before this we didn't know what was going on. We didn't even know like a couple of weeks ago we didn't even able to lunar gateway was still going to be a thing. People that are in charge of the money for NASA or thinking. You know maybe we're GonNa pull some funding away. Maybe we don't need the lunar gateway. Maybe these people don't need a way station between the Earth and the moon but NASA today said. Hey we need this. We do need a lunar gateway and we're going to be hiring spacex to do artists contracts. So in their press release they say NASA has selected spacex of Hawthorne California as the first US commercial provider out of the gate logistics services contract to deliver cargo experiments at other supplies to the agency's Gateway in Lunar Orbit. The award is a significant step forward for Nasr's Artemis programme that will land the first woman in the next man on the Moon in twenty twenty four and build sustainable human lunar presence at the moon and his partners will gain the experience necessary to mount a historic human mission to Mars and Jim Brian Stein. Who's the head of NASA? The administrator? He says this contract award is another critical piece of our plan to return to the moon. Sustainably the gateway is the is the cornerstone of the long-term artists architecture and deep space commercial cargo capability integrates yet another human industry partner or American industry partner into our plans for human exploration in preparation for a future mission to Mars spacex his contract. How crazy is that space x kind new to this space stuff right? I mean they've been in a for a while but they're the new kid on the block. They haven't been around as long. As somebody like Boeing. They're not as big as somebody like the U. L. A. The aren't part of you. Know the normal kind of architecture like Northrop Grumman. Somebody like that spacex has been doing a lot of missions though. They've been sending a lot of things to the Space Station for a long time. They had twenty s missions to the space station. And they've done a great job that so because of those things they know. The SPACEX can make the craft that can supply the lunar orbiter the lunar gateway with the essentials for humans to go to the moon. And this is the Dragon. Xl It's awesome looking. Well it's pretty boring to be honest with you. It's cylinder and has you know solar ray solar wings if you will on either side and it's just basically cylinder but it doesn't need to look cool you know. It doesn't need the look amazing or sweet but it's very Trustworthy sure because when the star business thing and they get it to a place where SPACEX and Nassar happy with it. That's only four years away in these times that we're living in right now for years away. It's really not that far everyone So for years away something look forward to and they have to send supplies before the people get there and they have to make sure that this lunar gateway works before the people get to the moon so this is GonNa happen before for years. It'll happen probably in the next couple of years before anybody gets there they have to send stuff up there before People get there and they have to make sure they do the test to make sure that thing is capable of handling people while it's in lunar orbit the Lunar Gateway has to be in a good spot technically before people board the thing so they're going to get supplies up they're gonNA get people up there and then when they send the people to Lunar Gateway. Those people are going to go to the moon might even send people to the lunar gateway to be like. Hey we're in the lunar gateway and we're going to hang out here for a little bit to make sure this thing works and you know they're gonNA be there for a couple of days probably check it out and then go down to the mood. I'm not sure the timeline of what's going to happen. Because they haven't they haven't even released that yet. They're not one hundred percent sure but they have this huge gateway configuration in. It's GONNA turn out to be something like the International Space Station. They have ISA involved with this. The power and perform Propulsion they have international habitation module. They have robotic arms from Canada. They have another candidate arm. They have an Isa Orion Service Module They have a multipurpose module. They have Habitation modules from NASA all sorts of things going on at huge huge solar. Ray So this is going to be a big thing. It's going to be a big deal. So basically we have a space station which is lower here in his orbiting the earth right now and You know from there were. We've just been stuck in that orbit for a long time at the International Space Station. Haven't really gone farther than that. Other than Hubble a longtime since since the Space shuttle. So yeah. That's it's a new thing you know and it's going to be really awesome
"northrop grumman" Discussed on Main Engine Cut Off
"Hello and welcome to main engine cutoff. I'm Anthony Colangelo WanNa talk today about a Darpa program that has been Quite the saga over the years. This is the robotic servicing of geosynchronous satellites program R. S. For Short this has had a tumultuous past few years. Sorta roll the clock back and give you the full context. This is a program that was designed to obviously by its name. Demonstrate Robotic servicing on satellite specifically charged targeting geosynchronous here but it was maybe a little more expensive than that in general so the the basics of it was that. Darpa was looking for a partner to build the spacecraft bus which would host developed by Darpa and I believe it was the US Naval Laboratory. That we're working on the robotics platforms and self. It would be two different robotic arms a couple of tools at the end of each. And ideally I think that the mission was to change out different parts on satellite whether solar panels batteries. I'm not sure they ever determined exactly what they'd be changing out. But it was a demonstration mission. That could accomplish a series of tasks and they were going to host it. On a commercial payload a commercial provided bus. I should say not a payload and the agency itself would provide the launch. And the robotics payload and then the satellite operator would host them on their on their satellite bus. They would get them to where they need to be carry out the mission successfully and then and this was the critical part after the Darpa demonstration was done. These satellite would be turned over to that satellite producer to be commercialized from there. So they could offer satellite servicing Partnerships or are Or Services I guess would be not really partnerships to other satellites in the area that turned out to be a point of contention and led to a lawsuit so Darpa awarded this contract to SSL space systems the row. They are a division of Maxwell Technologies. Now sorry for all the names here just trying to get you up to speed on on how all this worked so as a one that initial contract to host the RS GS Payload Northrop Grumman. Who at the time was orderly to Cain nother Northrop Grumman? They sued over this award because they said that Darpa was funding. Another company in in Something that is redundant to what they were already working on. And there was some clause in the law that said the government should not directly compete with commercial entities. That are trying to do the same thing. So they sued over that saying that The turning of this satellite from a Darpa demonstration into a commercially available option was directly competing with what they were working on at the time it was mission extension vehicles and mission robotic vehicles that lawsuit eventually got thrown out. There was basically the trio of things that were being argued over was north of gremlins mission. Extension Vehicles Darpa and Sol's our SDS program. And then there is another program at NASA called Restore L. If you remember about two years ago I went down to NASA Goddard and talked with the team working on restoring L. That is a program that NASA is working on to refuel. Land Sat Satellite. So this was the kind of landscape that everyone was arguing about. Being redundant and competing with commercial partners and look at NASA is already doing this kind of thing eventually that all got tossed out and SSL was pushing on the program with Darpa north of Grummin continued work on their mission. Extension VEHICLE FLASH FORWARD. A couple of years that was in the late two thousand seventeen timeframe early twenty nineteen. Sol cancelled their agreement with Darpa. Because at the time Max are was going through hell to put it honestly. They had a digital globe. Satellite worldview four that failed just after launching and was a huge insurance hit. It was like you know hundreds of millions of dollars that they lost from world. War worldview four dying so early on orbit they also had at the time. The geostationary satellite market was really down. There weren't a lot of orders. So they had a bunch of layoffs that were selling properties. They were kind of in a tailspin for a little bit of time. Their stock price was going. I think dropped zero off the end of their stock price. They were having a hell of a time so early. Twenty nineteen. They cancelled this contract and they said that they were not able to find an economically viable path to support our SDS within the timeframe that they needed considering their financial situation. And because this was a public private partnership in that way of hosting a Darpa payload and eventually becoming a commercial platform this was couched in a private or public private partnership in which the company was was supposed to be able to find a commercial offering for the satellite. After that was part of the deal at Darpa would be providing some funding they would provide a launch but that the company would be investing heavily in this as well because of that eventual payoff. But for Max. Are you know they were looking at a short term problem and this was a long term payoff? It was going to be another two or three years before this got up on orbit. Did it's demonstration and then would be able to start making money for them and at the time that would just wasn't going to work so they terminated the agreement from there. We follow two different tracks for this saga Darpa then had to go through the political ramifications of that and figure out if they were going to have money to reward this program to some other provider figure out if that was even in the cards for them figure out. If they can get the additional money needed through the acquisitions process and Northrop Grumman. All along was continuing to work on their mission extension vehicles. Obviously we know now that the mission extension vehicles have worked out just a couple of weeks back mission extension vehicle one docked with Intel Sat. Ninety one if you have not seen the photos from this you've got to check them out. They are pretty spectacular. Black and white. But you've got this view of Intel sad ninety one with the whole earth in the background and it's just beautiful beautiful imagery from this but they successfully docked with Intelsat nine. Oh One they had quite a campaign of rendezvous with this coming in a couple of different times eventually did dock with Intelsat nine and they are now They've taken over You know the propulsion in pointing services on that satellite so that is the scope of mission extension vehicle as its name implies. It extends the mission of a satellite. It does so by taking over propulsion attitude control everything that is essentially needed except for the payloads on the satellite itself. That are transmitting broadcasting back down to Earth or whatever. Their job is It's taking over all of the other stuff. Maybe the satellite has run out of fuel. Maybe it has some other issue that it can't maintain its Pointing on its own and this takes over for it. So at this point emmy one is Going to complete a five year mission within zell sat nine to one that is the initial contract for this mission extension vehicle. It's bringing it down from. Its GRAVEYARD ORBIT. That is three hundred kilometers above geostationary orbit. It'll bring it back down into juice stationary orbit and begin services. Once again after that five years is up. The mission extension vehicle should have about ten years of life span left so it can go off and service other satellites in geostationary orbit and that's the business model here. You're you're letting somebody extend their useful time of that payload on orbit for a couple of years without paying for a huge launch so without a massive investment you're extending the life of that huge asset that you already have up in space and eventually over you know that fifteen year lifespan of mission extension vehicle north of Grummin expects to make significant profit. They can launch a mission extension vehicles as secondary payloads heading up to geostationary transfer orbit then geostationary orbit and do this fifteen years of service and make a good amount of money If you run the numbers it it does turn out to be. You know millions of dollars of profit if you obviously don't know the exact prices of everything that's involved here but it's not hard to really do some math to show that this does make some millions of dollars over that lifespan. Now from here mission extension vehicle to is already on its way. It's not launched yet but it's on its way to launch. Intelsat again has an agreement to be the first customer mission extension vehicle to so mission extension vehicle line seems to be quite lucrative for Northrop Grumman and they do have plans to push beyond simple life extension to something called the mission robotic vehicle and that is the second component of this satellite servicing market for North. From and the difference. Here is that the mission robotic vehicle will be launched. It has a couple of robotic arms and would also has on board is something they called mission extension pots so instead of a full second satellite that goes on and attach is typically to the engine of these Ju- stationary satellites. These would be much smaller. Pods that the robotic vehicle would go up and attached to the satellite itself The most the most recent visualization. I've seen shows it attaching to the engine. The Same Way. This mission extension vehicle does where it clamps on to the engine on the back of the satellite and these pods are much smaller. So the idea is one robotic vehicle can carry many different pods. That would go up. They would provide. I would assume much shorter service life spans for these vehicles but just because it can't fit as much fuel inside but if each pod can offer three to five years of extension services and each robotic vehicle carry at least three probably up to five or six pods on a mission. You can see that you are able to offer a lot more mission extension services to a lot more satellites in a much shorter time span so instead of banking on five or ten years of time. Line before you're turning profit with a mission extension vehicle that could be done and crunched into five years with just as much Just as many agreements signed with these different satellites norther Grummin. Seems like they are really going in on this mission extension services idea as lucrative business model and I like the idea of mission extension pods because specifically because of that timeline crunch. Who knows where the industry's going to be at five? Ten fifteen years from now especially considering things that are gonNA come online new launch vehicles reusable upper stages hopefully space tugs you. Name it. There's going to be a lot of shifts in the industry. So if you're able to identify mission extension services as a valuable business for the current ageing generation of satellites in. Jiu Stationary orbit mission. Extension pods can let you offer those services to as many as possible in the next five ten years and really focus that revenue generation on a need. That is present right now and then. You're building up all this experience of these different vehicles different robotic operations. You're pushing it every single time. You're launching when it's when you get five or ten years out and things have significantly changed. Hopefully you've got enough of a base built up of customers and experience and technology that you can respond to where the market is at that time. So that's where north of Bremen was doing and that's kind of where they stand.
Satellite almost on empty gets new life after space docking
"An interesting idea. It's from a division of Northrop Grumman and what measures one is is. It's a satellite that has a grappler so we can grab other things in space and a lot of fuel and the idea of the program is you can extend the life of satellite that has run out of fuel and his either GonNa be parked or de orbited depending on where it is And and here's the challenge. Satellites are not made with gas caps. They're not generally built to be serviced by other satellites. That doesn't generally happen So you can see what's going on here. North Grim thinks that there is a market in building a satellite that is cheaper to launch and use to extend the life of an older satellite than it would be replaced. That satellite right. It's just it's simple economics here. What if we could make that satellite of yours? That's about to die last another five years. How what would that be worth to you? And if that number is lower than or higher than the price we would charge. Let's say or something like that. You do the math you know like. Oh that's better. Let's do that. So that's what that's what one did a demo with an eighteen year old satellite from. Its until nine one What Intelsat did is moved into a different orbit? So was up there. They actually moved. Until set up to the mid one orbit taking it out of service in doing so and meth one docked with Intelsat nine and one so came a few grabbed it with its grappling system. It's docking system and is now in the process of or over the next month or two is going to push Intelsat back into an operational orbit it will go back in operation and it will have five years more life this eighteen year old satellite with with a buddy satellite attached to it at the end of the five year period when it when Intel sat thinks it's reached the end of its operational. Life is then going to raise it up to a graveyard orbit like we talked about last time where where it's higher orbit above Geo Stationary Orbit. Where there's not a lot of stuff and it doesn't matter if there's dead stuff up there it's not a big deal so they're gonNA they're gonNA push up to a graveyard orbit So that's awesome five years extra life by adding a buddy satellite that can keep it operational and That's not all the plan then is after five years is one will grapple and can go somewhere else and do it again with a different saddling. Reasonable Buddy satellite right as long as it's got propellant and it can grapple stuff it can get to what it needs to grapple. It could do this so you have to is also coming later this year. They're going to use it for a different intelsat satellite and the goal. This time is because you know they wasted propel underuse propellant in taking it out of service and taking it somewhere else to try this the next one. They're going to do it in place. They're literally going to just drive over to wear that. Intelsat. Satellite is while it's operational and just grab it and then extend its life by having new propellant ability to move and even though because generally what seems to be happening. I mean if something breaks something breaks this is not something with like robot surgery to fix up circuit board or something. Although I think a future this stuff is that but in the short term. It's this satellite is cost us. Hundreds of millions of dollars is incredibly expensive electronics. And the only thing. We're missing is propellant. Well that's what the system is. Basically doing is like we will send up a thing full propellant and attach and move your satellite around for you. The great idea until sat says the economics work for them. Which if the economics and work for until SAT IN FOR NORTH OF GRUMMIN? This is really cool. Because you're extending the life of this stuff. It's almost like recycling in outer space. Like you're extending the life of this and you can see how this could get way more complicated down the road in terms of allowing tele presence cars of satellites there. You know the further out. They are the more of a delay. There is but when when you think back to the Hubble missions where they had to fix the Hubble Space Telescope over the course of decades say that was a user serviceable astronaut serviceable thing or I s space walks. You can see and you and I actually saw at least one of these at at Johnson Space Center the experimenting with a robot that can crawl around on the outside of the space station and do repairs. You could also see that. Same kind of thing. Po- possibility for one of these mission extension vehicle satellites to be able to potentially even do repairs. Come you know come by do a repair mission. And if that costs less than replacing the satellite. It's totally worth it. So it was very exciting. There's a lot of this being talked about. Nasa has a plan to do a spacecraft. That's GonNa Attach to an old land sat satellite in low-earth-orbit and and do a connection these. The mavs are built for geostationary orbit. I believe there's a Japanese company that we've mentioned on this before that wants to make like a sticky like web or arm satellite. That can actually just kind of like run into space junk and a ten. Yeah stick to it so that it's no longer space debris so there's a lot of this. We're entering a phase where one of the opportunities business opportunities in space is and from a different angle. You see it with spacex reusing. Its vehicles reusing. Its its first stage is that you make this incredibly expensive satellite and you leave it up there and it's got a lifespan. And then it dies. And it's like a disposable satellite and now there are companies coming along and saying what if we could take that disposable satellite and make it recyclable instead and extend its life and then move it out of the way. It's it you know it makes access to space cheaper right because it means that the stuff is serviceable and presumably over time. My mind started to raise as I was reading the story like presumably over time you would end up with things like perhaps some standard equipment like standard actual docking attachment. And things like that. Where it's like can we all agree? That the satellite's going to have this thing on it so that one of these buddies can come up later and refuel it maybe or or attached to it and move it around but there's so much that's already up there so is they figured it out. Like where do you grab on? How do you hold on? Is it GonNa work and it seems to work. It's awesome

Singapore Airshow dealt Coronavirus blow
"We're in Singapore which is quite possibly the most unusual escher in our collective memories We are of course hit during a week. Where the corona virus has had an impact on Travel plans for those this coming. From China that would traditionally come to the show but also from others in the region including From from further further away including major exhibitors exhibited who have been somewhat nervous about attending the show. Let's talk about this a little bit. WHAT SUV attendance rates? Let's have we seen a decline with the major exhibitors. That didn't show up. Well I mean obviously the numbers significantly down we could see that for for ourselves. Almost immediately. I remember two years ago. This show it was like sort of piccadilly circus in the Russian to get through the the channels between Shell as and the exhibit will this year. There was no problem. That's all it was very easy. The other point was when we went up to the the Static on there was a lot of span space on the ramp The biggest hall of course. Being the absence of Boeing's ego demonstrator triple seventeen hundred which there were hoping to bring to the show in fatted sets off. They go to Tokyo But turned around when they Threat level was raised to orange just on just started so sadly significantly impacted of as far as I could. I'd say anyway. Well the defense side you know. It was a huge impact. Lockheed Martin Raytheon Northrop Grumman when all stayed home you know there was people from the Russian companies here but it was really a skeleton crew The Chinese accompanies were of course banned from coming obviously. Didn't stop the August. I demonstration team which made a surprise appearance last week with their j ten fighters so Yeah but there was a huge impact on offense but thinking about. That's a attending major astro since I think mid-nineteenth or so and it's the first ever that onto where nas been stat not stop stood in a single life right station not have security not whatever whatever that is we could have been empty. So that's it could be for Saturday's coming of the organizers. Say A set that eight percent of exhibitors contras but it was mostly powder the tooth because the nice two percent that did that did show up showed up with a much smaller group of people search. So for instance Abbas there but they sent a few people that they would so so. It's been depressing way unusual night and in and this huge challenges ahead full for aviation as a whole but particularly aviation in the region given the impact this is going to have on on on uncommissioned airlines yeah region. I mean if you looked at some figures here Check some days of the week or so so Normally the Chinese airlines around to tweet sixteen to eighteen thousand twice a day They've deccan the operation between five and six thousand seven days in the past week. So that's about a third of their schedule. Financial initial impact huge Don't forget there's a lot of airlines. That are highly dependent on Chinese Traffic Korean. CARIOCAS areas the airlines in Thailand which kind of missing Derek Young Group of international travelers. And so we've seen the fallout of this. Yeah will be casualties. On the way in the next two months people tend to compare where this SARS in twenty two thousand three but I actually tend to disagree with the thing that a lot of sense just because China's become so much bigger than they operate. Seven hundred aircraft craft now is four thousand so much bigger share of the building chapter nor competitions and in recovery phase face will be will be

The program is also a path to economic mobility in the first few years every student who completed the program was hired in the local schools. This program, demonstrates a synergistic dual nature of economic mobility native people, academics, expresses important equally important as to strengthen our community in Peshawar culture, is twin missions, individual and community are inseparable. We cannot fail it either without putting the other at risk. A more obvious contribution to the economic mobility as availability of jobs through a multi year partnership with the department of energy tribes industries sailors, couldn't college and four other TCU's as are establishing advance engineering skills to operate digital manufacturing equipment.

And the college to a mentor protege program to help us create the workforce and develop economic opportunities through that program. As new jobs, created the tribal colleges educate students to fill those positions. One of the ways we've created job creation, is that we need a pipeline of skilled workers because our high school dropout rates are too high and many students, where enrolling S K C unprepared for college stem courses, we developed dual credit at that wasn't enough. So we recently opened a stem academy for high school, juniors and seniors students take classes at their own high school in the morning, come to sailors college in the afternoon to complete their science and math courses. And then they are ready to enter stem programs and have doorways open for opportunities that they might not have had before the academy is already in second era of existence, demonstrating success Thurs strategy, is like this tribal colleges are transforming Nate.

And in my home, safe of California, and I know that, that includes working with adults who were trying to finish their GED and with rebound programs to improve college access.

How your experience working in different facets of higher education, and in different tribal communities, influenced your approach to your rose presidents, sailors, Kuni college.

But we know that south efficacy is an is a key piece in whether students will be successful more than GPA's more than. High school. Graduation, our predictive tests of entrance exams. If the student is committed and believes that they can accomplish their goal with support. They can we also know that a strong sense of who you are. And in our case that's around your tribal.

"Staying in the front door of the SEC the Securities Exchange Commission because they have crowded in and taken control of the hottest prospect in all of commercial space. The man whose vision is the moon, the Mars and beyond who is now humiliated by the SEC a finest paid millions and millions of dollars and the man the humiliated musk now withdraws from tesla. I'm not certain that SpaceX will be the beneficiary. Bob, a very good evening to you. This is something I worried about you. And I talked about it for weeks that mosque was getting ahead of himself. He was speaking out of turn trash talking. He was making boasts the SEC closed in because of his remarks about raising private. Capital for tesla overseas. But really it's a demonstration that musk the vendor Ken of these last years has other reached his limit or needs to go away for awhile to recharge. Good evening to you. Bob. Good, john. Well, I don't agree with you on that. I think that this to me struck me musk might have misspoken and made a mistake on Twitter. But you know, there are you anybody they could go after almost anybody if they wanted to to me this struck me as a SEC's like a bunch of mobsters, you know, nice business. You have their Eilon would be a shame. If something happened to it. So they went after him and they got him. And this is with tesla specifically separate from SpaceX. They got him and tesla to each pay twenty million dollars to give up his championship for the next three years. And then to install the independent chairman and to new board members of tesla, but must remain on the board. I would say that that means that he's really not going to be his influence Tesla's. Not. Going to be reduced very much, which is what the stock of that company really wants to stockholders. They want him there. Whether it reduces his activity a little bit of tesla to give a little bit of rest because I think his biggest problem is just simply overworking himself. He needed. He'll you can burn yourself out. If you just don't take a little bit of a break. And so I think that's that's the one question in my mind. But as far as I'm concerned, this is this is the government once again, just bullying people Abbaba question here, the, but the government had nothing to do with with Moscow trash-talking that was steak on his part. There's not a mistake, Bob. If you permit that kind of trash talking by principles of major corporations that are publicly traded you'd have a ping pong game going on every day, I can raise private capital. I don't care about the price of my stock. How will you respond? The only thing investors have to respond to is the leadership. Of a stock the leadership of a company, and when that leadership is not reliable making remarks about Saudi Arabia, providing billions of dollars and the heck with public offering. You've reached a point where the market is ungovernable. So it's not a mistake. It's musk in some fashion. Having a nervous breakdown, Bob. He knows better than that. I think there is breakdown is really too strong award. When you know, what is it? We back to or hearings. We're gonna come with his actions. We have no idea. He's he is has always demonstrated himself to be an incredibly open and willing to almost say any, you know, he's very open on his Twitter feed and his commentary ever done anything like this before. But never not not making remarks about public public of a public company saying I can raise private capital in the heck with the stock price, and it's costing money. There's no doubt about it. But I at any time the government steps in here. I just my instinctual RA. Reaction is the I don't trust them. All right. You said to me that Wall Street hates Busk that indicates to me, then they might be trying to pin. Pin him down in ways that have nothing to do with, you know, protecting. All right. I'll keep an eye on it. Bob for this for this time. We'll see if he stays away from trash talking and future. Now, we come to start a launch a remind everybody what it is about. She's a company being built by Paul Allen to try to reduce the cost forgetting payloads into orbit. Just likes Milan. Muskie's doing shell launches gone about this a slightly different way. They built a giant. They they bought two seven forty sevens. And they use them to put to put a put together to build a giant plane ever built they call it a rock or see, and they up the idea was is they put a rocket under fuselage it would take off from runway any runway, and then the rocket would release and go into orbit and this has been done by others before it. It's definitely a way to save money and reduce your cost because your first stage in a sense is reusable and flies from any runway the problem. It had is they have not been able to get a rocket four below the fuselage initially SpaceX is going to build it. They pulled out then Albano AT K was going to do it. They pulled out. That's a company. By the way, at the time was the company is now part of Northrop Grumman. But they they in many ways invented this concept. We'd have Pegasus rocket does exactly the same thing from a bottom of L ten eleven so they couldn't find anybody. And so now, they're gonna fly Pegasus RAV rockets under this giant rock plane, but they're really. There's no reason for them to fly under this think go onto a regular L ten eleven wide body. So what strata launch this week a revealed is that they are building their own rocket engine as the basis for building their own rockets to go with the straddle launch talk. I've talked about this with you previously. How they've come up with a medium launcher a more powerful entre. And then something that space playing that would be completely reusable and be attached to the bottom of the rock up at plane, and so this PGA rocket. They call it and Paul Allen is his initial actually developing themselves, and they say that they're using Tweety printing, and they're pretty much almost done. And so we shall see if they can come up with their own rocket the gone straddle launch under the Iraq playing if they do that they they once again, they're moving towards complete reusability of the rocket system cube Rover hydro. Sat and maiden space three names for three new companies launched where Bob, well, these are all American companies, then they're not gonna try new maintenance base has been around for a while they've done. They've actually been a pioneering three d printing on the international space station.

Washington Post is science reporter Joel Offenbach who's Spoke with komo's Tom hutler so, what seems. To be the problem this, time and there have been problems before tell us what's going on the big problem. The problem is that it's. A really complicated telescope. It's been many many years in the design it has. To have this this. Unfolding sunshield five layers sunshield the size of a tennis court that has to happen out in space but there's no rocket that can launch something that big it has to fold up like a parachute and this is turned. Out to be really a nightmare in terms of of of making it all work and there. Was all these human errors at the contractor's facility Northrop Grumman the contractor too big aerospace company made, a number of human errors a bunch of screws came loose they they didn't screw the screws in tight enough they did a big shake test of the sunshield all. These twentieth screws came. Loose and are kind of bouncing on the floor and people are going to say this isn't. Right so that's That's not ideal for precision telescope especially one, that's already cost over seven point four billion dollars, you'd think. Things like screws would be kind of gimme putt there but apparently that's not the case now how much is this going to. Cost us now and who's taking responsibility if anybody. This is kind, of a too big to. Fail project it's a really. Important telescope I think the the astronomy community is is is firmly behind it NASA is firmly behind it, this review board said yes you got to keep going. Forward and today there was a hearing on, the hill where it sounds to me like the lawmakers are not gonna pull the plug on it we've. Got a lot of sunk costs in this telescope and you. Know it's it's it's like the. Successor to the Hubble this is an infrared. Telescope but a look really deep, back into that sort of the dawn of time. Capturing infrared light and it's it's an important instrument. But it's gonna take several more years before it is launched and they've got, to root out anymore gremlins and, there may be. Some more And it's going to cost another couple or three, billion dollars before this thing is. Done, and you write in your piece at this literally gives the folks that? Do these, things a chance to as you mentioned kind of look. Back at to win stars. Were first assembling into galaxy so there's obviously, great value to this. This is what the astronomy. Community has been wanting, for, almost twenty years saying we need. This big infrared telescope it's possible it was you know a bridge too far too complicated that's possible but we'll, see you know I think. Most people certainly are rooting for this project to work, and it's just, just, main, simple human errors have added the moment.

"No it doesn't involve those space vampires either though that is that is also a good one and i love planet of the vampires they got the best space suits and they do they're so style leather spacesuits but this this is pretty stylish too i think if you if you allow me here to discuss the venus atmospheric maneuverable platform or vamp please do robert which is a proposed northrop grumman planetary exploration vehicle and you should you should look up images of this at home it looks kind of like a flying wing which is interesting considering that northrop grumman made the original flying wing aircraft the experimental y be thirty five and y be forty nine the former with propellers the ladder with jets from the from the mid to late nineteen forties i don't think i know what those are what are what are they like the essentially imagine a big boomerang as a nineteen forties bomber and that's what you have with the why be thirty five in the white he forty nine these were military yes they were designed to be big bombers and northrop grumman later came back into the b two spirit stealth bomber so if you've seen images of the stealth bomber then you have seen a flying wing aircraft oh okay yeah so they really like the idea of a of a flying wing and in fact this the vamps concept involves sending one to venus so we're talking about a propeller driven flying wing type a craft that solarpowered and also semi buoyant so it's kind of a blimp plane hybrid but it's a prop plane in venus yeah yeah it's a prop plane a love this yeah i love the idea that that one day we could ever propellerdriven vehicle in the atmosphere venus it would have about a hundred and eighty foot or fifty five meter wingspan it would fly to max speed of about thirty meters per second or sixty seven miles per hour and that its desired altitude would be something about fifty to seventy kilometers thirty to forty five miles above the the hard surface of the planet.

"It and there was a back and forth about whether it's supposedly it didn't separate from the upper stage and it was a back and forth between spacex and northrop grumman about whose fault that was the air force indicated then that it wasn't spacex is walton soda it's basic say that well there are two independent investigations that will report it in the news this week that say the blame falls on offer the normal satellites separation equipment that spacex uses to separate the satellite from the upper stage was not used in this case it was they use northrop grumman's equipment because they said that the satellite itself was super duper delicate that's interesting and so it needed a special kind of release mechanism that northrop grumman provided and it didn't work or appears that might have worked but it didn't work when it was supposed to and spacex had automatically decided was going to fire the upper stage engine to bring it back into the atmosphere to burn up so it would be space junk it appears that when they realized it hadn't separated the second stage already fired it's rockets and so when they separated it wasn't high enough to stay in orbit and it burned up that's at least what we know i have to still say that there's so much secrecy about this that i don't trust anything i hear i keep a certain manner schedules skepticism in the back of my mind i'm pretty sure this is what happened but at the same time who knows this disinformation bob here's the detail i puzzled about it looked to me an amateur from the outside to be a spacex failure which is commercial space failing with the big contract but what your reporting to is that it was big space the military contractors that contributed to the failure and spacex was exempt but really hasn't been able to explain it self it's a commercial enterprise in failure like this is not transparent.
