"How will we last Nevada congresswoman Dina Titus wondered about the public's perception at the FAA? And the decisions it's made about Boeing, we were the last ones to do is because FAA was just too cozy with bowling that you are in bed with those that you were supposed to be regulating in that spot, too, so long, the FAA's close, working relationship with Boeing prompted Oregon, congressman, Peter, defazio to question, the implementation of a brand new automated flight control system until after lion there. The pilots said no, the system was installed. Is that correct? Is that software system known as m Cass played a role in both crashes not long after takeoff of each tuned jet the system triggered and ferociously yanked down the nose of the plane L? Well, acknowledged in his testimony that Boeing should have alerted pilots to the new and caste system. But he defended the FAA's longstanding policy of allowing manufacturers like Boeing to conduct their own inspections as part of the initial certification. Boeing says it's close to finishing a software update of the seven thirty seven. Max automated flight control system that well expects it to be turned over to the FAA and a week or so. And he insists the update will undergo rigorous testing, we will not allow three seven max to fly in the US until it is absolutely safe to do so. And we will use every tool every day to gathering capability, we have to ensure that's the case relatives of some of those who died attended yesterday's meeting committee members made a point of acknowledging them in pledge to honor their loss by making the aviation system, safer and better Russell Lewis NPR news..

Ethiopian Officials Release Preliminary Report

"Wrong in the crash of a Boeing seven thirty seven max plane in Ethiopia that killed all one hundred and fifty seven people on board. We have some answers this morning safety investigators in Ethiopia released their report today, and they concluded that the pilots didn't do anything wrong. They followed the instructions from Boeing on how to operate the plane, although they still couldn't control the aircraft. When it started to go down. This was the second crash involving that line of Boeing planes in five months and it prompted countries around the world to ground all seven thirty seven max planes NPR's. Russell Lewis has been covering the strain joins us. Now, Russell Boeing had been suggesting recently that at least in part of the reason for the crash could have been user air this. The report by the OPN investigators seems to clear the pilots of any wrongdoing, right? On the surface. Yes. It is a preliminary report we don't expect the final report to be released perhaps for another year. So obviously, there are still some findings that will change. There are still some analyses that obviously still need to happen. But this is the preliminary report, and essentially it said that the takeoff it appeared very normal. But what happened not long afterwards was that the nose of the plane pitched down violently towards the earth. And really here is the key part, which eat the opium airlines actually tweeted out in response as this news conference was still going on. And it was this that the pilots had been following the recommendations that Boeing had put in the checklists and approved by the Federal Aviation Administration. But it was still not enough to prevent this plane from crashing her. So a lot of the focus in the past few weeks has been on this new flight control software that was in these planes. Does the report mention this at all not really? An ineffective didn't really quite come out. You know in this report reporters at this news conference in Addis Ababa, the Ethiopian capital did ask about it today. But it was sort of a a bit beyond the scope of of what they were talking about. But what you're seeing in some of the statements that are coming out is that this plane was had a persistence of nosediving when it before it crashed in that the crew was following the recommendations that Boeing had had put in place, and I think you know, that this certainly increases the pressure on Boeing, and I think it also calls into question though, why wasn't the Boeing seven thirty-seven max fleet grounded after that. First crash, the lion or crashed into Asia in October. And then the United States several days to ground these planes while other countries went ahead with it. Yeah. That's right. You know? And clearly Boeing knows that has a problem. It was working on the software fix to try to fix. What wrong went went wrong in the Indonesia crashed or knock? Tober and on the surface, it seemingly appears as the same thing that happened last month in the THEO P and airlines crash. You know, a crash that killed one hundred fifty seven people in as we say it puts the pressure firmly back on Boeing, and you know, by default on the Federal Aviation Administration. You know, the the regulator in the United States Russell stay with us. I want to bring in another voice to the conversation. Peter goals who will have a view on the federal government's role here. He's the former managing director for the National Transportation Safety board, Mr. goals. Thanks for being with us. Thank you for having me. What do you see is the single most important finding in this report? Well, that the pilots followed the procedures as outlined by Boeing and confirmed by the FAA following lion air. I mean, it was it was kind of an arrogant directive, I think that Boeing put out after the accident, which essentially said read them in Ewell and fly it, and you should be. Ok well, apparently, you're not and that is. A big deal not only for Boeing, but for the FAA that signed off on it. Right. So does this mean that responsibility for the at least the THEO paean airlines crash based on this report lies squarely at the feet of Boeing. Well, we don't know that yet because as was indicated the report was very preliminary. And I think a couple of other interesting things one is they discounted the idea that there was a bird strike that through the angle of attack indicator off, and they discounted that the tape takeoff was in any way unusual. But clearly the spotlight is turned on ever brighter on both Boeing and the certification procedures. But like Russell mentioned they had already been working on this software glitch. I mean, do you see that as something? That's that's far. Bigger problem than Boeing is actually acknowledging. Well, I think that the FAA just announced it they're going to have a certification commission that's going to review process. This plane is not going to get back in the air right away and the fix. I think is going to be reviewed extensively before anything is approved. I think we've got a ways to go. I mean, the hard thing is I'll put this to both of you. There are a lot of different factors that go into trying to explain why an airplane crash happens, right? Russell russell. Yeah. Absolutely. You know in any aviation accident. It is it is not one thing that causes a crash. It has many small things that cause a crash and that all sort of comes together. And so you look at pilot training, you you look at you know, how the pilots were on you know, during that flight where they overly fatigued. Did they get enough rest the night before they look at the aircraft? They look at the air traffic controllers. There are many things that sort of play into it. And it is not one thing. It is many many things that you know, that that play into it, which is why these investigations take so long, but clearly many questions about Boeing and about its fleet, you know, continue to bubble up. What kind of long-term damage has this done to Boeing do? You think Peter? I think Boeing is in a very difficult position. You know, it is in a highly competitive situation with Airbus they brought the seven thirty seven max to the market on a very expedited basis this has damaged their reputation, and they are going to have to work hard to regain their position. And it's also damaged the FAA frankly, and they're going to have to work hard to regain their gold standard as the regulatory agency of record for the world. And you say damage the FAA because there have been questions about whether the FAA of delegated too much to Boeing to do its own safety checks. Absolutely. There's numerous investigations that are going to go on to see whether Boeing head the capability internally to do a rigorous review of this complex system. And it's not clear that they did. Just real quick Russell has Boeing given a response to this report yet. Yeah. In fact, I reached out to Boeing this morning to to sort of get their take on it. And I got a terse six word answer for them. And it was this. We are reviewing the preliminary findings that was it NPR's. Russell lewis. We also weren't conversation with Peter goals. Former managing director for the National Transportation Safety board. Thanks to both of you. We appreciate it. You're welcome. Thank you.

A spokesman for Ethiopia's transport minister sites are preliminary review of the plane's flight data NPR's Russell Lewis. This similarity is involved in new control system that was installed on this new jet to prevent an aerodynamic stall under certain circumstances. And the way it works is that it would push the nose of the seven thirty seven max gown if the plane sensors and flight control computers sense, the problem with low airspeed the plane involved as the Boeing seven thirty-seven max eighth in many other countries have grounded the max eight amid questions about.

Nancy Grace Roman, 'Mother Of Hubble' Space Telescope, Has Died, At Age 93

"The Hubble space telescope Roman died on Christmas at the age of ninety three. Here's NPR's. Russell lewis. Nancy grace Roman always loved to look up at the stars. And imagine at the age of four her favourite object to draw was the moon in fifth grade. She organized an astronomy club when she got to high school. She met with a guidance counselor to plot out a future as a scientist. And she looked down or knows that me and sneered what lady would take mathematics instead of Latin in fact in a field dominated by men. She never let that get in the way she got a doctorate in astronomy and worked at the naval research laboratory, and then nessa nessa was whole six. Months old and was a great place to work at that time. It was everybody was gunman whole early on. She had to convince ground based astronomers space astronomy was worth doing David divorce and of the national air and Space Museum says that wasn't easy. She had that very very large gala -tarian view of how to make space astronomy part of astronomy. And I think that is very important like among the many projects she oversaw was the creation of the Hubble space telescope the idea had been around for a while. But in an NPR interview last year, she recalled bringing in astronomers from across the country to meet with NASA engineers, we sat down together and developed a the outline of a design that the engineers thought would be feasible and that the numbers thought would what they wanted three to one.
