"Disaster. Off of their album released last year. A blemish on the great light. Before that, we heard Sam evident. With Lucky Cloud cover on Arthur Russell tune. That comes off of the 2014 Arthur Russell tribute album, Master Mix Red Hot. Plus the wrestle. For those who are unfamiliar with him. Arthur Russell was a prolific singer, songwriter and cellist in the early nineties, really recorded thousands of different tunes for a dying due to complications from HIV. At the age of 40. Thie album features folk favorites is too soupy and Stevens phosphorescent Jose Gonzalez covering his tunes. And if you want to learn more about our legacy I definitely consider checking it out. For Sam. We heard the mountain goats. With hair, Dick pride. After album from 2008 of the same title. Classic example, the mountain goats defiant spirit in the face of any trouble, including death itself. I'm going to leave you with two wonderful songs before I go. First Attune inspired by the immigration crisis than the Mediterranean by Layla Dan called emigrate. And then A folk fusion like you've never heard before. Scottish bagpipes and north Indian percussion, courtesy of the Toronto tablets, Gamble. A tune called Unexpected Guests. Released an album of the same name just a little over a month ago. I wish you all a wonderful week. Stay safe. Stay healthy. I'll see you again next week, another green morning. Aunt again. This tune is from a Layla Diane that's called immigration. Savors.

We'll see. I be I wouldn't be against it per se. I mean this is pandemic rules. Everything goes, and everything goes.

"Here's how you would construct something that would be able to play these things right now. They were there twelve inches in diameter. And they are designed to be played back at Sixteen and two-thirds revolutions per minute so actually fairly slowly. I mean you know. We're thinking about the The forty five or thirty three revolutions per minute for For your average albums and this is a sixteen in two thirds so On these golden records are lots and lots of stuff actually. It's including things like greetings from five different languages including some that aren't being used anymore did not been used in a very long time. Which is a Sumerian language. Which was last used around? Four thousand selection of nature. Sounds Yup so if you ever wanted to hear what frogs burping sounded like and you are from some distant planet. Here's an opportunity to share your Ford Prefect and you're on your way to Earth. This is a good way to do some homework before you get there. A lot of traditional music some Some native American chance and Scottish Bagpipes talk about some of the music was on here for African ritual music There's a bunch of classical music and so I wrote down some of my favorites. This is this is obviously. There are lots and lots of musical tracks on the records. These are just the ones that I personally wrote down because I I they resonate with me. it's not to say that the other ones are not anti sense familiar with some of them but there's the Brandenburg Concerto number two F. Actually it's just the first movement That's by a guy named Bob Batch. Johan batch wrote that if I'd he's just some dude really yeah obviously Bach's Brandenburg Concerto number two enough then there's a melancholy blues which was performed by Louis Armstrong Stravinsky's the rite of spring was included Bach actually was pretty well represented on this record. He also had the well tempered. Clavier down there There was the first moon. Beethoven's Fifth Symphony. You know the There was another tribes chant and then of course the most important I think Musical work that was included out of all the pieces were on there as we as we all know from the documentary back to the future I save Martin Mc fly. It'll save the human race. We're talking about Chuck Berry's Johnny B. Good there's actually a book all about the process that they used to select which sounds went on the golden record. It finally came out with a CD companion at some point. I'm sure it's on digital. Yes the book itself is out of print but you can sometimes find copies is called murmurs from Earth So if you want to learn more about how they came about choosing which sounds go in there That's that's a really well done piece. It's it's something that I've heard nothing but good things about it. I personally have not had chance to read it By the time I learned about it it was wearing print. But there's also a bunch of images on the desks including a star map clearly showing the location of earth new saying here's what humans tastes like maps of earth images. I'm just I'm just ignoring that. Entirely there are people who have said what a huge mistake it was to essentially include directions directly. I I think it's pretty ridiculous. Because the odds one anyone finding voyager sweating big as it turns out really big. No-no HAD NOT. You might think it's a long walk to the chemist on the corner but that's just nuts compared to space it's going to be tens of thousands of years before either. Voyager craft encounter anything near another star. Yeah exactly so really by the time. I'm betting we will have either kill ourselves off or hit and plus on top of that you know it would all depend on from what direction the other creatures were approaching earth because there are a lot of different vectors you could take and only a couple of them would intersect with the pathway of either voyagers waste way more than most science fiction. Movies are willing to acknowledge. There's building just ship space battle than just the single plane So there was also an hour. Long recording the brainwaves of a woman named Ann Druyan. Who would become crossings wife. Yep She's an author she concentrates mainly on cosmology and science and She she signed up for this. She volunteered to have her. Brainwaves recorded in Carl Sagan talked about it and she thought it was a really interesting idea and so she went in for the process where her brain waves in her heartbeat. Were were red and then transferred to data analog that we have to say because it's an analog desk and She says that what she did was she. She thought about big historical moments. That were very important in the development of human history and then she spent some time thinking about the current situation on earth. How what that's like and not sugar coating at things like Violence BETWEEN PEOPLE. And the the yeah. Yeah so she really spent some time thinking about things that she felt needed to be addressed and then she said that she took the liberty toward the end of the session to take a little bit of time and think about what it's like to fall in love. Which I think is amazing. Wonderful Sweet. Yeah so now we. Those aliens can't tell us they don't know how to love because she thought about it for for a while. Darn it So yeah those radio signals do take a long time to get to. Us So But and and the record. That's on there if you want to hear some of the stuff There are there are a lot of different sites out there that that keep all the things that tells you. What's there and most of? That's pretty easy to get access to and listened to find one in Lincoln up on social. Yeah we'll see if we can find something in the you know. Maybe I'll see if I can make it a spotify playlist or something and I'll get a Ukulele and play. Johnny be good on the Ukulele Johnny. Please stop that would be the name of that song all right so anyway. That's that's kind of the the the wrap up of the spacecraft in the stuff that was aborted but we still haven't talked about the actual science return so we're going to do that in just a moment but before we do. Let's take.

"Is pointed in the right direction to get the data the needs. And the. It's yeah. It's a three axis stabilization system and use the celestial, or Giro referenced attitude control to make the high gain antenna point back to Earth now we talked about the fact that there is an interesting gold plated copper disc on board each of the two voyager spacecraft. The golden records there for. So this This was a really cool idea you know. Who of course was the chairman for this Carl? Sagan yes, he he had billions and billions of suggestions, but not all of them can make it onto the desk, obvious right, and and these are these are these these goldplated copies engraved like vinyl records? Yeah, yeah, and kids. Ask Your parents. Oh dear, no, no kids are hipsters. These days. We know things final. It's cool kids, 'til your older siblings because they they've missed out on the HIPSTER generation right? I'm not all right, so so yeah, you're talking about a desk. Vast physical grooves that are in it that can be read using a stylus and country, which which were included the they included the cartridge and stylus did not include a turntable. So aliens aliens work it out. They have to build it, but they did leave instructions written in a symbolic language to say here's how you would construct something that would be able to play these things right now.

"Never actually look more into it. Because I was lucky that I could say it. There's an infrared interferometer spectrometer. And Optical calibration targeting system, a planetary radio astronomy and plasma wave antenna, each spacecraft's two of those and also as the planetary radio astronomy instrument or Has the a plasma instrument. Voyager one's plasma instrument is nonfunctional, but all other instruments are in working order and boys. You're too is still collecting data through its plasma instruments It's got. It also gets power from three Isotope Thermo Electric Generators, and currently it gets about three hundred and fifteen watts of power now the spacecraft designed so that all of their systems can operate at four hundred watts of power. Okay, so it's able to It's still getting power, but it's not enough power to operate everything, and in fact they designed the voyager spacecraft with this in mind, the idea being that as the power as the power supply begins to decrease, it begins to shutdown unnecessary, says instruments. So originally. There were eleven different. Projects that were involved in gathering data from the Voyager's systems and processing that data here on earth. There were eleven of them currently, only five of them are still in operation because the other systems have been progressively shut down to make sure that the voyager spacecraft can still send us information, and like you said by twenty, twenty or twenty five or so. That's when we expect. Expect the power to have run down enough where we're not going to be able to get any more information from them, because it's just not going to have the power necessary to broadcast right right well, because the way that this engine of sorts works, is that appellative plutonium dioxide released heat through their own natural decay processes, and so once they have finished a king. That's it. Yeah. That's true and then I'll I forgot. Magnetometer boom which designed tests to measure magnetic fields, so that was one of those things we didn't really know a lot about the magnetic field to the outer planets before we sent these these spacecraft up. That's one of the really huge as sources of information that it is. Yeah and so then it has a flight data subsystem, which handles all the information, and it has an eight track digital tape recorder. So you've got an eight track up there. It's a it to the FTSE configures controls collects data from the various instruments and the tape recorder handles the data from the plasma wave subsystem, because that's the one that gets the highest density of data and the shortest amount of time, so the data tape recorder was the cutting edge technology to handle that that information and according to NASA. The tape in the digital recorder won't wear out until the tape has moved back and forth through a distance that is equivalent to the width of the United. States that is not. Not Terribly, precise because the United States is not a perfect rectangle, but in general I would say that's probably about three thousand miles, which is around four thousand eight hundred kilometers I assume they mean is that it's doing fine. Yeah, so what they're saying is that that tape is capable of traveling that collective amount of distance about breaking right, so you got to remember the tape. itself is not that long. It's just saying that they would you'll by the time you would go through all this tape and his worn out. You could have gone all the way across. The United States using that same distance of taping played through. Just kind of that's impressive that has a command computer subsystem which provides sequencing and control functions, which includes fault detection, corrective routines, antenna, pointing data and spacecrafts sequencing data. The detection involves seven top level fault, protection routines, and each one is able to detect and correct for several possible failures. Oh, basically it just means that there's the computer has multiple modules, and they compare data back and forth between each other, and it will decide if one module is different from the others that that one's faulty and to cut it out system. And it also means that the space craft capable of shutting down systems if it needs to automatically autonomously, because which is important, because we can't broadcast to these things they broadcast to us. They don't have receivers though their antenna could receive information, thank yeah, but it means that it would take seventeen hours for the information to get to us in seventeen hours for the freshly of back, and by then whatever the problem was is probably not the biggest issue at that point right, so yeah. It's important to have something to connect autonomously. If if you if the communication is a barrier, same sort of thing with the the curiosity rover when it was landing on the surface of Mars, you know a lot of that landing. In fact, all of the landing was autonomous because there was no time for us to send any adjustments to the system. It's like you're on your own. Yeah, by the time we. We would be able to send adjustment. It would have already either crashed or landed safely, so you had to design a spacecraft that could do this or else. It wouldn't work pretty impressive in the nineteen seventies for for the amount of computing power that what's going Oh. Yeah, definitely, and it also had an attitude, art or still hassle I. Don't know why I'm using the past tense still up dead to you. The attitude and articulation control subsystem, which is also known acs it's in charge of maintaining the spacecraft orientation in positions the scan platform. This is what we're talking about. The system that's that's in charge of making sure that data antennas pointed back at Earth, and also that the scan platform, which is really you know the instrumentation panel? Is pointed in the right direction to get the data the needs. And the. It's yeah. It's a three axis stabilization system and use the celestial, or Giro referenced attitude control to make the high gain antenna point back to Earth now we talked about the fact that there is an interesting gold plated copper disc on board each of the two voyager spacecraft.

He caused the soviets to so there's that argument but on the other hand here he is cozying up to joseph stalin and saying you understand of course political constraints but would you help me out here just throwing throwing poland under the bus at tehran it happened at least according to the official notes hole in was under the bus already longer than churchill unfortunately poll in got a raw deal being located between nazi germany and stalin's soviet union it would have been better had poland been located for example on the west coast and america andrew norman davies book devil's playground has listened listen to david used the term periphery pecking about a dozen times and he can no longer restrain himself.

Jim I wanna bring the bagpipes into the discussion because people associated with the Scottish marching bands. And obviously that's an instrument that's been around for centuries. I've not only in Europe northern Africa the Persian Gulf. I mean, various continents and people's have their own version of the bagpipe, and it has filtered into rock and roll over the years. There have been various examples of bagpipes used in rock songs. The animals notably used bagpipe on Skype pilot and Paul McCartney on mulligan tire. Big country. Don't forget that guy from Korn Jonathan Davis. Greek plays a bag five. You know, the thing about bagpipe, though, I know some bagpipers, right? It takes you a decade before you can call yourself in apprentice hard instrument to learn it is extremely extremely difficult instrument, and the reason I'm playing this particular version of the song is that sometimes AC DC that great great rock band from Australia, kind of viewed as musical Philistines, you know. But Bon Scott, the second lead singer in the band came on board in nineteen seventy four was very smart man and very well versed in bagpipes. In fact, he used to play with something called the Fremantle Western Australia Scots pipe band as a youth. So bagpipes were part of his vocabulary before he came into this hardest of all hard rock bands. As far as I'm concerned, great vocalists and also a great bagpipe player. And by the way, Jack black did not write the following song. He may have claimed it in school of rock. I did a great version of it. But the orig-. Version was ACDC doing. It's a long way to the top.

"You heard the Scottish bagpipe maker there. He's definitely not the only one in the UK worried about Brexit and today the United Kingdom move significantly closer to making its divorce from the European Union. A reality Prime Minister Theresa may, presented her cabinet with a Brexit deal. She negotiated with e you leaders and later, she. She said her cabinet approved. It the world's Matthew bell has been following the story and he's with me here in the studio. So what happened Matthew? This was probably the cabinet meeting of Theresa May's political career lasted more than five hours, and in it, she presented a document. She said it was a compromise with the European Union almost six hundred pages long. This was finally her chance to kind of put some finality and certainty onto and a half years of negotiations for her cabinet members yet and getting to that compromise. So what is in this plan may said this is the compromise that will succeed because she says the European Union will will buy it. She says this is what the public voted for in two thousand sixteen when they voted for Brexit will protect British laws British borders, British jobs, she she explained earlier today. Hard line, Brexit, tears are not so sure there's a lot of skepticism including within her cabinet Marco. The biggest question probably is still what happens with the Irish border. This is what happens with the north which will remain part of the United. And then the south Republic of Ireland, which will still be part of the European Union. Yes. So how is that plan along the Northern Ireland and Republic of Ireland border going to work? Right. So they have sort of a compromise. You can call it. They're fudging it Northern Ireland will apparently stay in what's called the EU customs union. Centrally giving it a special status goods people will be able to cross the border with the sea. And with the land with the south. There's a key moment today earlier, though, Marco, and that was when the Democratic Unionist Party leader, this is a small party from Northern Ireland that Theresa May's governing. Coalition depends on Arlene foster is a party leaders name. Here's some of what she had to say today. Cirque NATO sent a pair that we would be able to support it because it breaches the red line in terms of having differences between Northern Ireland and the rest of the United Kingdom in terms of regulation. Obviously, we would still be in the customs union as well on. We of tough up, and Matthew I gather we did finally hear from prime minister may herself. What did Theresa May have to say about where Brexit is at right now. Yeah. After the cameras were there for hours looking at the number ten Downing Street door may emerge after dinner, but in time for the evening news. The company has just had long detailed and impassioned debate on the draw withdrawal agreement and the outline political decoration on future relationship with the European Union. I think it's safe to assume that when she said impassioned debate that means there could have been some arguing in that room. I'm also if you listen closely, you could hear the jeering and the protesters making a ruckus in the background. This is a hugely divisive issue in Britain. But Theresa May also said that her cabinet eventually agreed on the deal when you strip away the detail the choice before us is clear this deal which delivers on the photo of the referendum which brings about control of. Money. Knowles holders, ends remove -ment, but techs jobs security and all union old leave with no deal only. All no Brexit actual. So Matthew briefly. What's next? Well, the prime minister will go to parliament. And I think it's safe to say we can expect more impassioned debate. There was Matthew bell. Thanks a lot. You're welcome. Before we get back to the show..
