"Welcome once again to super an activity. I'm your host Jolly Professor Esser and with me as always is the man with the wisdom to watch thousand. They'll film in Pairs. That's the ones I keep on touching my face. We're not supposed to fill up. Welcome back to the wonderful world of super connectivity where the world is crashing down around her heads there will be no more comic books ever never again and a lot of tragedies befalling all the people of the world also. We lost one of the one of the greats of basketball of Greenhill from the Harlem globetrotters and of course from Scooby. Doo meets the Harlem globetrotters in the Super Globetrotters and Countless comic books about the globe predators in the seventies and eighties. It was a good time. Good time to be alive anyway but now here we are in this end time. Dystopia that is co vid twenty twenty well on the bright side at least the environment getting a break. Relatively relatively you know. I don't think it's as good as people are like implying you know. Yeah but it can't hurt but it can't hurt you know hurting. It's better that you know we're not driving as much where telecommuting which you saving a lot of energy putting as much carbon dioxide in the atmosphere all these things which are good but they took away our Comics Philip. Diamond of dairy on it. You know. Here's the thing that bothers me about diamonds decision and it is kind of it is. It's kind of this gray area about where and this is the thing. Everyone has within this. Time of crisis is the grey areas because there are there are all these shutdown orders. All these lock orders but there are certain. There's certain carve outs for certain businesses. Publishing is one of those businesses. Yes the problem is that apparently there is some feeling that the resellers of published materials are not one of these businesses. Now Mike Comic Bookstore was basically doing curbside pickup. Yes so you had your pull. You could write in and say pull these books for me. You drive up. They would come out. It entered the buffs. You drive away so they found. They found a workaround in this situation now with diamond. Essentially saying they're not going to deliver comic books for the foreseeable future. It puts everyone in a tough spot and now and some some people's view of it is well. You know this is good for the comic book retailers. Because now they don't have to take in a bunch of they don't have to sell whether they're not going to be able to sell and you know it's I got into a bit of an argument with a guy about this yesterday because well hope for some kind of. That's the thing if your book store that relies mostly on walk ins then. Yeah this is. This is bad for you. Yeah this situation being able open if your account bookstore. That relies heavily on your police. You know that that it's not as bad for you. You know and it is. That is that complex question as to what what's Best Account Crete Hellers In the meantime you know with diamond making this choice. They're kind of making the choice or everyone diamonds saying they're not going to be doing these deliveries and now the question comes to marvel in DC. And everyone else. Are they going to continue to make books? That can't be distributed via hard copies Interesting enough alternative comics undermine is still going to be printed comics because as I said there is a carve out for media public media printers because as it turns out in a crisis you want printing presses to keep on running and while they're printing newspapers they might as well print comics as well. Well and I mean it would hurt it. Would I would hurt all the African mortar businesses but I mean marvel. Abc and all them digital well. Yes but you know at the same time. They also want to maintain that relationship with the hard copy publishers because as we have said MARVEL NBC. Those are basically those are basically the farm teams or the movies. Now we're basically they're going to be running on a bunch of great stories coming up with brilliant ideas and then years from now they're going to be taking a what was a great idea that those writers came up with. And then we're GONNA to get it translated in some way into movies when it seemed more characters more people more things coming into the fold for the Marvel DC universe that originates in the comics. I I saw another theory of mind. I don't know how they would do. But they were saying. You know the Marvel DC and the rest of them could like send digital codes to the retailers and then the could sell them to you at the regular price then once the physical volks come in. They will just the still. I'd actually said that as well I. That's actually my idea for is that you know what I D C doesn't have digital coats. Marvel is actually already has already has the digital codes. They can sell those to the various retailers retailers. Now just have to be very careful in how they sell those digital codes out you know But yeah I mean that would be the smartest thing to do because as I said they already have the codes in stock theory hit. They already know what code goes to book so they can designate. Okay these the codes. That paradox comics in north Arlington. New Jersey is going to get. And here's the codes that you know. The porch sowed who'd in Newark New Jersey is going to get the comic bookstores and whatever store that Phil GOES TO TIME FOR THE EVIDENCE. Out what codes are GONNA get? Yeah Infinity Com. Yes yes you know. And they get to make the whole thing electron I mean they can email the codes the stores the stores can email you. Once you pay you know electron email you the codes exactly and that would be a great way to handle it in this in this. Dark dire time And also would keep you from having to buy. 'cause that's sort of this this idea you know personally. I still buying if even if they don't have comic books. I'M GONNA buy my Gift Card to parallel summits each week or these men were comic book budget and then when the books coming we'll just cash those in or like I was. The Guy was saying if you go in the store or even send them a list. It's like five by some back issues. Oh Yeah and if you and of course you know most stores will also do. We'll have a male a mailing thing. They will say these what we have. You know I know paradox is going to be putting stuff on Ebay. And there's all these stores are going to try to find ways to solve their sell their stuff so what they can sell because they still need the money you now yes we may have just passed the cove nineteen bill and there will be benefits for small businesses. But you know as with everything you can always count on getting the getting the tax cut it. You can't always count on an actual small business getting the small business tax credits. Did he's GonNa say we're a small business. You know American Airlines Law. Which is a little puddle jumper although loaf and I were talking about this last night I was saying one of the advantages if they don't even if they just don't print anything for awhile digital anything. I mean. Look at all the delays. We've been having on books lately. Marvel DC. This would give them time to like get like a a buffer. Go get some two three issues like completed in all diamond before they sell another comic. That would be the dream so that way when he would have to be late. Have books for a while. Well again like I said that would be the dream. Yes sir I mean. Everyone works from home now. They all equally and I think most I don't know how many physical writers artists actually go into the office opens. Now the editors are there. Yeah I think a week or two ago they At least DC told everyone will start working from home. So Oh yeh but I mean in general what I'm saying is I think the writers and artists are already doing that. I don't think I don't think a lot of these guys. Go Out of their house that much or have to go out of their to say in this day and age I think some of them don't even live in the studio city. Is the main office you know. Well yeah well. That's been for years. You Know John. Byrne is always lived up in Canada. He's coming in to the CFO disease. Ridden backwards Health Cape. You know he knows what side of the what side of the side of the bread. His his Putin's on so you know. Yeah we've had We've had writers and artists that have been remote from the business central for years. So that's not new. That's not news. It's it's good that they should have an option and when everything goes back to normal someday you know. Hopefully someday things will go back to normal and hopefully we don't just know. Go try to go back to normal too quickly and then have everything. Just get worse. You know that's always the risk. Yes Latin the curve as they say but anyway as it stands. Yeah I think there are options that the comic book retailers can do the comic book companies can do.

"Defy radio telescope, it's designed to detect the rich at twenty one centimeter hydrogen line from the cosmic dawn epoch of rayon is Asian which corresponds to a rich of twenty seven on the other side of the Indian nation and the South African precursor facility is the me cat array of sixty four thirteen point five made at dishes covering the five hundred eighty megahertz the fourteen gigahertz frequency range. They're also a further seven dishes known as cat seven which you used as an engineering and science tested facility that erected general of the square kilometer array organization, professor Philip diamond who lived the design of the telescope says like Galileo's telescope of it stay the k will revolutionize how science understands the world around us and out place in it more than the thousand engineers and scientists have been involved simply in designing the k- of the past five years. The find out more Andrew Dunkley. Speaking with astronomer, Dr Fred Watson. Let's talk about this international treaty. The square kilometer array. The that signed sealed. And will I'm guessing they're going going to deliver. Indeed. That's right. So this goes to the story is about event that took place in Rome, in fact, in which a number of dignitaries from the countries that are involved in. That includes a stray Leah signed something called the S K A observatory convention this treaty, basically, an international treaty, which is a very great international stature so gay stands for crew square kilometer array, it is the name of what will be the biggest radio telescope in the world when it's finished in the twenty twenties. It's cold S K a square kilometer array because it will have a radio collecting area of one million square meters. Which is a square kilometer so Americans who who are listening Dan understand the metric system that's about five yards. Think that's wrong. A million square. Yes. I should Bill to tell you what it is. 'cause but I'm not going to do. It's alot very large number of acres. So it's going kilometer. Right. It's something that has been worked on for the better part of a decade in fact longer because both the main countries, which will host the telescope. That's a strategy in South Africa. Although there are other countries involved those two countries have both now got operating Pathfinder versions of the S K in Australia. It's cold as cap, which is the strategy in square. Kilometer arrived Pathfinder in South Africa is called MIR cats, which is a much more elegant name or like that. Actually, we've got me a cat in Dublin zoo deserve that's ri- cute. Yeah. It was really cute about this nine hundred is the way was derived because Mika is partly an acronym. So there's something called cats which was the Karoo array telescope that the Esca, of course, is in the right at the South African version is in the. Crew which is a high region plateau regions of South Africa. So cat was the Karoo array telescope, but then the South African government said, well, we can give you more funding to increase the number. I think it was going to be about thirty dishes, the increased it too. I think sixty four five remember rightly which was great. So they decided to call it more cats, but in Afrikaans more is mere. So it became Mika. I can tell you that a square kilometer is a me two hundred and forty seven acres you go. Thank you. So this is it should be called the two hundred and forty seven acres telescope and skulls kilometer, right? Okay. So the instrument itself will be spread between southern Africa because it was more than just South Africa friend, Australia, New Zealand because the nucleus of it is in Western Australia. But the antennas will spread outwards and will actually the most remote ones will be on New Zealand soil. So it is a project that is really going to set astronomy on fire in the next. Well, they help it less for fifty years this project our bit here in Australia is very much concerned with the low frequency and of the radio spectrum. So where the South African square kilometer. Herreid components will have steerable dishes here in Australia. We've got sort of fields of things that look like Christmas trees on tenants that just sit there and they're actually steered electronically. It's. Amazing science it. You don't have to point it. Anyway, you just have all these rows of tenants and are gonna be one hundred thirty thousand of them all together really on you basically steer the steer the beam around. So you can see that invite you can look at the whole sky at once is my understanding of it. But suddenly got to select the objects of interest. So the telescope in Australia is being built actually on land belonging to the the water watcher, the Yahmadi people they are the traditional owners of the land. And they've had a great relationship with the square kilometer array personnel. I did mispronounce that actually because this this when you see it written what you pronounce his slightly different. It is what do they Yamaji? That's the correct pronunciation some of the aboriginal terminologies very hard to get your head around. We have some amazing straight names in my hometown here in Dabo, and when people ring up and say and Iorean wing voire wing go. It's window. You are. And you're right. I never wind you street. Well, as I said the square kilometer array on the indigenous people have had a great relationship in essentially dedicating this land, which is a very has a very low population level to the project, of course, it's population density, the very low population density that makes Western Australia such an attractive sides for radio telescope because there's noble phones. No, microwave cookers nothing that actually leaks out radio station. Not even in Perth this Packwood. I'm going to just bring up the point that the capital of Western Australia, which is an absolutely beautiful city. I'll have some good friends. They is the most isolated city in the world. That's right on this is eight hundred kilometers further away from birth. So it is very very isolated the radio quietness theories ex quiz. It that's been demonstrated a number of times by the Pathfinder and number of other radio telescopes that have been built on the site, which by the way is called the Murchison radio astronomy observatory so what was this treaty signing all about this was what committed the various countries, and it's an increasing number of countries that are joining in this project, probably be something like twenty one when you know when everybody signed up the signing in Rome, which involved actually, our ambassador, the Australian bustard in Rome, he was the person who signed the deal it's a bit like the start of something like the European nuclear research center, which we know a Sern you, and I talk about Cerna lot because they've got a loud chadron Kaleida, which is one of the biggest pieces of scientific infrastructure in the will hold the thing about this is it's the same kind of deal of we are hosting. Something of the same significance if not more so than the large Hadron collider all straddling soil will be the largest scientific instrument of built when it's finished. It's what you might call magazines project. And so this signing really is a big deal for strive. Yeah. Nuts and bolts, though, one of the looking for good question. So I was hoping he doesn't mean that. Because that's what was about to tell you next to shows out. Well, signatory Al always days at twenty years. Did twenty agonizing. Okay. Questions really very fundamental ones. It stops with the duck ages. You remember yourself after the big bang for the first we don't know how many million years but for the first period of time the one oh stars shining in the universe. The big bang itself. Occurred is big flash which lasted for about three hundred and eighty thousand years it was a long flash. But sometime after that the universe became dog. And it was then probably like the time measured in the adult or of a hundred million years before the first styles switched on. So this this stop period, immediately after the big bang that we can't probe with Nola visible light telescopes because the one and he starts so you've got to look at it in radio waves because cold hydrogen, which is what was around about telling actually admits radio radiation, and we could detect that. So that's you know, the first thing investigate the dark ages then things like how did magnetism originate in the universe? We don't know the answer to that. Questions about gravitational waves. This kind of thing will also fit into that. We've talked about gravitational whereas before these caused by dramatic events in the universe. These square kilometer array will have the wherewithal to pick up these events in the radio spectrum as well something we have talked about several times foster radio bursts, or as they correctly known idealist. Hey, one of the big mysteries of modern astronomy. So on the square kilometer right is ideally suited to studying. The these are things that shine very brightly in the radio spectrum for something like three or four milliseconds, and then disappear and apart from a handful of repeating ones and never seen again. So what are they all they something at the end of its life. That's blowing up in a cataclysm. We just don't allow answer to that. That's one of the things that will be addressed by the s k on indeed is already being addressed by the pathfinders. And finally the ultimate question we alone because the S k will have the sensitivity enough to pick up an airport radar all of the statistic pickup an airport. Right. Are fifty light years. When will it be operational? Do you think the kind of already in the sense of the square kilometer right Pathfinder being operating? It will probably come on stream in various stages. One of the really interesting things is the amount of computing power you need because that computing power doesn't exist at the moment. But it will do by the time they get so the estimate have to make a quantum late. Well, quantum leap is always good, especially if he can involve quantum physics sorrow of courses, they run the Murchison radio me observatory day will host the square kilometer. Right. Telescope at Murchison, and the other thing I was going to mention is a risk goes back to your question. They expected that something like a billion dollars worth of construction contracts will start to be awarded for the scion that will be from light next year late twenty twenty we'll start seeing throughout the world invitations to come try till the manufacturer of various positive, so it's fun to. Mastic stuff undone? Really a good news story. That's professor. Fred Watson NS drama with the department of science speaking with Andrew Dunkley analasyst the program space nuts.
