The nasa air force research laboratory on ascension island houses a telescope with a very special mission to track fast moving orbital space debris the orbital debris program office at nasa's johnson space center collects the data from this and several other ground based optical and radar telescopes across the world. Reliable software tools are then used to predict the risk debris might pose to spacecraft earth and the international space station with more than seven thousand metric tons and millions of individual pieces of space junk orbiting earth tracking the debris is essential because orbital debris moves much. Faster than a sniper's bullet.

The Story of Miss Baker - Space Monkey

"Okay so what was the plan. Were they going to do with these. Twenty-six tiny cute monkeys already worried about them. Yeah so nasa wasn't a thing until nineteen fifty eight so for years. The army and the navy have been running these tests to see if it's safe to send humans to space and that's where these twenty-six tiny monkeys come in. So were they going to send all twenty six of these monkeys into space or was there like some kind of training tiny centrifuges how they just please imagine for a moment a monkey training montage. They had to go through like stimulated flights and lab testing. And you know stress testing like they were looking for the smartest calmest monkey to send to space. Yeah i'm totally imagining the monkey version of the right stuff. And i'm sure this isn't isn't true but i'm picturing like tiny silver jumpsuits and little monkeys walking down the tarmac in slow motion for sure. That is what i'm picturing. So it all sounds really cute. Little monkey nuts blazing a trail to the stars. But actually the us government at this point has been trying for a decade to bring a monkey back alive so starting in nineteen forty eight we had albert. The i went down to the tail. Explosion albert the second valve failure alpert. The third parachute didn't open i. I mean it's interesting and this is like it's both totally awful but gives you some sense of why they're doing these experiments right because they're going to send people into space plans to send people into space years out from sending people to space and so far there just you know. Just a bunch of dead monkeys. This is i mean so. This is pretty grim up until we get to miss baker. How did they end up choosing miss baker. So it's spring of nineteen fifty-nine. There's all launch scheduled. And so the navy basically narrows it down to one candidate and its tiny female squirrel. Monkey barely on adults. And she's teeny tiny. You hold her in your hands She has this adorable little like white mask on her face. You know tiny little like bear shaped ears a long tail super long fingers. Ucr your heart just goes out to her and the researchers really liked this particular monkey. The even named her tlc for tender loving care. They basically figure if she she was the smartest the most docile and that she was the best candidate for this mission little known fact nineties hip hop group. Tlc named after her frie- you music box out there. Score that one away. That's that that's not true so the mission was coming up and all higher ups like we. We can't call her. Tlc that's not. That's not going to sound good over the radio. And so they renamed her baker specifically they renamed her miss baker and her co pilot for the mission was another monkey and they call her. Ms able and so finally. It's may twenty eight one thousand nine hundred. Ninety nine launched a cape canaveral. They load miss baker up into this really scary looking contraption it's like a water bottle or metal thermos and she's wrapped up in there like a mummy in this little jacket and she able or walked out onto the tarmac where they launched all the ships and they're loaded into the top of a rocket fifty ton jupiter rocket fifty tonnes for two tiny monkeys. Okay so they're on top of this building sized fifty ten rocket they're tiny they're cute and this giant rocket this big launch. It's all for them. There's nothing else going on today so owning to thirty five. Am one lengthening. We have looked up thirty monkeys strapped in escaping from the gravity of earth and into space at one point. They're moving at ten thousand miles per hour. Just imagine flint would be terrifying for anybody much less a monkey in total they spend about fifteen minutes in space and then the nosecone detaches from the rocket and it begins the descent. Forty-five minutes after the launch. The nosecone splashes down about two hundred fifty miles off the coast of puerto rico. Just after five. Am that morning. The uss kua pulls up at picks up the nose cone and everyone is very nervous. They were desperate for these monkeys to have survived. So one of the guys aboard ship popped open the nose cone and both the monkeys were alive. Everyone was just everyone was so happy. They radio back to cape canaveral and they said able baker are perfect. No no problems after unwrapping her from her coat and her thermos one of the guys on the ship gave miss baker at a little cookie. And so it was. It was a huge success because these were the first monkeys to return alive from space. Oh wow yeah and these were like the first american animals to kind of come back in one piece and you know like at this point. This is the middle of the space race. There's a lot riding on this as a very very geopolitically important little tiny monkey yeah she was a big deal and you would be for the rest of your life so immediately miss baker in her co-pilot miss able are shipped off to washington. Dc for a press conference because our what do you mean a press conference the monkeys you gotta understand there now vip very important primates but four days after the landing something really sad happens miss able dies in a freak accident and so now. Miss baker is the only the only monkey to return alive from space and america's only animal astronaut to have survived. And so that just kind of makes her even more special there. Were you know newsreels about her children's books printed about her or she gets fanmail especially from children. She was on good morning. America at one point. She got double billing with the jackson five. That is famous. Yeah i also. I also love post her career in science her life kind of like moves into the gossip pages. A little more public figures like that like they do something you know like kind of given a title. She's called america's first lady in space. That's how she was seen so miss baker after her flight. She goes back to pensacola. You know there's a yearly parade in her honor but mostly she settles down. You know her handlers. Even get her a companion. Another squirrel monkey named big george and after a while the hands even hold a wedding for them so like many young couples miss baker in big george moved to a bigger place. The newly built us space and rocket center huntsville alabama and by. Now it's nine thousand nine hundred seventy one and it's been more than a decade since miss baker took her spaceflight so big george eventually passes away and miss baker immediately married off again to another monkey. And it's very celebrity. It's very tabloid. The space center even sends out engraved invitations and has a real judge into the fishy eight And they dress up miss baker in like a train veil. She actually rips off a couple minutes into the ceremony. Good for you good for you. Miss baker and so she you you just get this idea of like how precious she was to people in nineteen eighty-four. She dies of acute kidney failure. She's twenty seven years old and at this point. She is the longest known living squirrel monkey in history. She at this point. She's broken every single record for like the average lifespan of a squirrel monkey. So miss baker's led this long life. She had like an official wedding when she died where she given. The same treatment was a funeral. Or what happened. Oh yeah she was sent off in style she was buried right outside of the. Us rocketed space center and three hundred people showed up just to witness her being laid to rest. I saw some pictures to like flower. Reason like these signs saying you know like miss baker america's first lady of space born nineteen fifty seven died nine hundred eighty four. And you know she was that day she was laid to rest next big george who had been buried there for a couple of years now. That's nice that's nice

"Left his footprint there in December, 1972 Now. A half century later, NASA is planning to send people back to the moon. The new program is called Artemus after Apollo's mythical twin sister and the goal is that the next footprint on the moon will be made by a woman. The astronaut who gets that assignment hasn't been chosen yet. As you're about to see this new push to the moon has been plagued by doubts, cost overruns and delays. But we found something else interesting when we visited NASA. Artemus program isn't just named for a woman. It's largely being run by women. So there's no place on launch day that I would want to be. But right here, Charlie Black will. Thompson is NASA's first female launch director and once dropped the copies. In a year or so.

So you were the Washington Post nerve center in essence. Yes. And so if anything happened overnight or early in the morning, it was your job to wake everybody up and update the homepage. Save time. Eventually was essentially the posts I any nerve racking moments during doing trying to think not really because I didn't do it that long, and then I did early mornings. I remember there were some nerve wracking early mornings. But there were never really any terrible overnight. Eventually became a what essentially amounts to imbed or or the people who follow around candidates with their cameras, and they're recording equipment and their notebooks and their laptops. During the await cycle for the post, but instead of being assigned to one person I got to travel to see all of them in a centrally. So everyone from John Edwards to John McCain and was mostly embedding with David broder and van bolts and found Weisman name corn shayla, very who where the post reporters covering those campaigns. And my job was to chew of those names are flat out legendary, Dan vaults and David broder. But I don't think I'm offending the others. They would agree and essentially bringing their work in print onto the internet, which still was in its infancy, right especially video, and they headed in video work for the post and podcasting. So being a part of this one takes me back to one of my earliest assignments with the post, which was not writing it was podcast, right? And at the end of that they said, well, you could keep doing this. You could go cover Washington. I said great. What are you going to cover the White House? Congress federal agencies. I said, well, I know nothing about the federal one. Is there a lot of citizens? You get all the ones that beat reporter. I said, well, I don't know anything about them. And the editor literally said to me major perfect you start next Tuesday. Right. Oh for four years. That was my anything that didn't have a beat I covered. And what I didn't realize that.

It was fantastic training in how Washington works because you get a real sense of the people that run those places get what did you learn the Marlins might appreciate well first of all that eighty five percent of people who worked for the federal government. Don't do it in Washington DC. They're all over the country. Right. Only about fifteen percent of feds federal employees live here in the Washington area. Most of the contractors that make big money live here in the DC area. That's why this series exploded so much through the years. But most of them are in regional offices are in tiny USDA offices out in farmland or at the Johnson Space Center in Texas or at the federal management. Absolutely any of the Federal Reserve offices across on of engineer, everything totally. So that was you know, because that's a famous talking point the faceless bureaucrats in Washington. They don't live in Washington. They live in congr-. Districts in every congressional district across the country. So that was one of the bigger revelations, but got to cover the repeal of don't ask don't tell the old Bannon gays and lesbians serving in uniform, and that was my introduction to congress.

"Griswold with your host, Steve and Lisa Griswold. We're here to give you information advice and opinions on some of the most popular travel destinations domestically and internationally. Whether you're traveling alone or with family vacationing with multiple generations or a group. We hope you'll find value in entertainment in our show. Now, here's vacation with wolves. Hi and welcome to vacation with the Griswold. Lisa is a way she's playing she's out travelling, but I got to pick this week's show topic. And I've got Rebecca from Kennedy Space Center, and Rebecca this is one of my favorite things. But I haven't been so long. Welcome to the show. Thank you so much. It's great to talk with you. So I grew up in Florida. And I was in Sarasota, and I was in Orlando, and I got to watch the space shuttle, launches and all that. And I've I went as a kid, but I never got to actually see. Shuttle launch or a rocket launch. And now, I kind of regret it because I was so close. Here right there. So I need to get I need to get back down. Can you let everybody know who's listening to kind of like an overview is I think a few people still haven't been can you just give us kind of a review of Kennedy Space Center. Yeah. Absolutely. Well, Kennedy Space Center, as you mentioned is kind of the place where humans leave earth to go into space. And so Kennedy Space Center visitor complex is really the best place that really brings to life that story of the US space program. There's a full day or more of just fun excitement and spray for the whole family from young children to space enthusiast. You can see space shuttle Atlantis. You can meet an astronaut you can go behind the gates at Kennedy Space Center St. launch pads. You know, see where those iconic launches have taken place, and there's really no place like it on earth. Now, of course, when we go down, and I think a lot of people they're usually heading toward Landau. So they spend a couple days maybe at Disney or universal or Sea World. And they kind of do the vacation thing. So. I know it's close. But how what's the I guess the best way? Or how do you add it on to a Florida vacation to do do it separately? Do you add it on a day to day experience? Well, it's it's really up to, you know, whoever's visiting, but it's definitely a full day or more. And so it's a really easy drive from Orlando. It's about forty five minutes to an hour. Just get on five twenty eight heads east, and you can stay the night and cocoa beach, which has great beach. Of course, really great restaurants. You know, plenty of space nostalgia and for those enthusiasts. And then you know, you have another day to be at Kennedy Space Center. Really explore all that we that. We have to offer because it really could take two days to see everything. Okay. So you could you could do. I've days in Orlando. And if you're doing a seven day trip, you could maybe book a hotel over there and do a couple of days at least with the beaches and then Kennedy Space Center. Yeah. Absolutely. Okay. And then the other thing I'd love to do over. There is going to cruise. So. So they've got some great. They have some great. Have you been? Have you been on the Royal Caribbean ship today away so the sea that's going out of there yet? I have not. Nothing about fantastic things on my to do list. When you get some time off, you should do that or the disease got two ships. I think go out of there as well. And then carnival so you've got all that like right there in the back door, and I can see remember going over that bridge, and you can kind of see the launch pad. I think from over there. Think. The big building. Oh. Yeah. The big iconic building. Now is there an ideal package because sometimes we'll get there a day before our cruise, and we always tell everybody, you know, not to fly in and risk missing your ship. So if they go early, and they say one of the hotels is there a package they can do pre cruise or something they can do post crews still catch their flight home. Yeah. Absolutely. We partner with many of the cruise lines to offer those kinds of excursions and packages that include transportation as well that we definitely encouraged people to add it on to any trip. Whether it's Landau are the are the cruise ships, and you know, really, it's a place that you you can't see. See anything anywhere else. That's like it. So okay. You know, if you're in the area, if you're close, then I mean, she comes to you know, if they wanted to do that on their own because they just go to the Kennedy Space on website to book something like that. Or is the best of book it as an excursion through the cruise line. Yeah. I mean, you could certainly rent a car and drive it yourself. Then fuck it all on our website as well. So it's really up to you know, the convenience and how much time you have as well. Yeah. The other thing we get asked a lot every once in a while is is it is it for little kids, or how do you keep little kids engaged because I know there's some museum pieces to it and some history behind it. But is there I've got Brooke just turned eight? So she's not little, but then we have people that travel, obviously with us that have little or kids so is their activities for them. Or what would you recommend? Yeah. Absolutely. I mean, there's lots of interactive components. There's just fun and inspiration for really the entire family. We have shuttle launch experience which simulates what it feels like to launch. In the space shuttle, we have heroes and legends. One of our newest attractions that is all about the early space period and interactive it has artifacts. But they're presented in such a way that really would be of interest to young and old alike. There's just content and interesting facts, and at that really keep people engaged, even if you know, you wouldn't necessarily remember that timeframe. Of the space program. It really brings it to life using technology up today, and in space shuttle, Atlantis in particular, their stimulators, there's you know, things you can practice how to land the shuttle. There's lots of fun things that kids can do. There's a great slide. You know, that stimulates the angle that the space shuttle landed when it was coming back to earth. So there's definitely plenty of things for kids of all ages. Okay. And I guess on the other extreme of that stuff for someone who's a real adventure seeker who likes to zip-lining and skydiving and those types of high energy sports and things like that. Are there other experiences there that you can do? Not probably like zip right now. That I mean, that's not not zip lining. But are there other things? It sounds like the maybe the the astronaut experience or some of that might be a little more. There are things that are tailored to little kids. Well, astronaut training experience is for ages ten and up. Okay. It's an add on experience. It's brand new at their most interactive you know, attraction that we've we've ever really had to date. So that would maybe not be obviously, recommended for anyone under ten we have a three hundred sixty degree, you know, full motion simulator. We have virtual reality. You know? So there's components of it that certainly while you're not in real life, necessarily, you know, taking risks than and doing an adventure. You know, they stimulate some really exciting aspects of you know, one day potentially going to Mars going to deep space. So it's not really for the faint apart. So. Well, we've got we've got a couple of minutes. So let's go into that a little bit more. So does that opener ticky? Tell me a little bit more about it. Yeah. Actually, it's on sale now, and we'll open officially February fix those on programs can be booked anytime after that, and there's two components within the astronaut training experience. They're both future focused Mars themed interactive like, I said virtual reality full motion, simulators, and they're all designed with a focus on problem solving communications and collaboration. So they're great for school groups to team building for corporate groups, and it's just an interesting and inspirational environment, I'm it's realistic issues as fisticuffs technology, and it really, you know, helps tell the NASA story while promoting stem learning. So you're doing things you're not just looking at an artifact, which of course, is of interest, but you're really immersed into the problem solving. That were in the midst of basically. To, you know, go to deep space and eventually go to Mars. All right. So it sounds like it's more than just an attraction that you get on an experience and then leave. So you're are you working with a team of people that have joined to solve a problem in a in a like, a thirty minute timeframe type of thing. Yeah. That's a really, customizable programs. So we have range from thirty to forty five minutes. You can do a full day you could do two to three days. And then our camp Cassie will actually take place in some of those programs as well. So there's multiple day options and Gino down to thirty minute options. So it's a great add onto your day. If you know you don't want to spend an entire day, you can spend thirty to forty five minutes. Just getting an idea of what astronauts do to train to go to space. Okay. Well, that sounds interesting. And when we come back. I'd love to a little bit more of like kind of what the base experiences what some of the add on's are like astronaut training. And then one of the things, of course, everybody wants to do is. They wanna see wanna go to a rocket launch. So maybe we can get into some of that as well. So we'll be back with more vacation with rituals. We'll be right back with more vacation with the Griswold..

"We're worth Rebecca from Kennedy Space Center, and we were talking about some of the new attractions out how to get there where to go how to do it as a pre or post cruise, and we wanted to get into a little more about like what a general admission what comes Rebecca with like a general ticket. And then what are some of the add ons that you suggest? Yeah. So our general admission ticket is a great value because most you can see most everything with it. You can see space shuttle Atlantis. There's a bus tour that included with admission that goes to restricted areas of Kennedy Space Center that the public wouldn't get to see. And so the great value, and it's part of your admission you go to the Apollo Saturn five center, which is where they Saturn five rocket is which is a racket that took us to the moon. So that is an awesome attraction and experience to see all the technology that we had and, you know, all those amazing inspirational stories and space shuttle, Atlantis you can meet an astronaut shake an astronaut's hand. There's astronaut there every day. I see the rocket garden which really tells the story of her early space program, and you can see the future of our space program. We have an. Attraction called journey to Mars which to talk about exactly what it says how we're going to eventually get to Mars. We also have a great pretty new attraction called NASA now, which has the very first commercial vehicle that went to the international space station, which is the dragon Arkham SpaceX and rehab EFT one which was the Orion capsule that did the test flight a few years ago over close vehicles that don't exist anywhere else. So you kinda get the past present and the future let school. So I also read that you have like it's like dying with an astronaut..

I don't exactly know what the joke was there. I don't know why the other two guys agreed with him. But I find this disturbing a my a my so uncalled to think that of exactly what you said Jeremy that a prominent guy who little kids and teenagers, and maybe even adults like me look up to could say this and normalize a wackadoo conspiracy theory. Maybe it's because I'm stuck in the mud journalist. But I don't like even giving voice to these theories. And if this seems funny and benign, we have seen so many instances where the infection of non-fiction with conspiracy thought truth in the real world has had terrible consequences. So I really didn't love this. I would much rather have my NBA players. You know being fascinated by lunar modules or something. Having to do and rooted in actual line.

But SpaceX is looking at a an uncool demonstrate in January with a crude flight in June of next year in Boeing is looking at an uncrowded flight in April with a crude flight in August. I gotta ask while they're more pressure. Now that the so you said the anomaly in the crew head to abort in. The answer's no the pressure was always on the commercial crew team. We can't work any harder or faster than we're already working in. And we are not going to do anything that is unsafe. We have procedures that we need to follow. We have criteria that need to be met in. We're going to ensure that. As we work through the processes that we meet those criteria that we can certify this vehicle, and when we fly it's going to be safe to fly we understand the risk that we're taking it will never be without risk. We are in risky business. But we need to understand what the risk is mitigated as best as possible in make sure that we're not taking undue risk in. I I will feel a lot more comfortable on both of these vehicles. When we have shown that we have a proven abort capability in is association capsules are are very robust in an aboard situation and much more. So than a winged vehicle, and I just wanna make sure that you know, if we don't always have mission success we ensure that we take care of the crew..

I gotta ask while they're more pressure. Now that the so you said the anomaly in the crew head to abort in. The answer's no the pressure was always on the commercial crew team. We can't work any harder or faster than we're already working in. And we are not going to do anything that is unsafe. We have procedures that we need to follow. We have criteria that need to be met in. We're going to ensure that. As we work through the processes that we meet those criteria that we can certify this vehicle, and when we fly it's going to be safe to fly we understand the risk that we're taking it will never be without risk. We are in risky business. But we need to understand what the risk is mitigated as best as possible in make sure that we're not taking undue risk in. I I will feel a lot more comfortable on both of these vehicles. When we have shown that we have a proven abort capability in is association capsules are are very robust in an aboard situation and much more. So than a winged vehicle, and I just wanna make sure that you know, if we don't always have mission success we ensure that we take care of the crew..

"space center" Discussed on NASACast Audio

"So the bay focus that we do is billing planning scheduling tools is so I get to actually learn about everybody else's job in order to create these offer tools. So and then I get to test field them in different places. So I get to learn about how trainers might be teaching astronauts how to do their job. I get to go to mission control. Learn how they control robots how they manage the international space station, how they schedule astronauts time, and all we take all that information in order to build and design our tools, and then we get to test them in different environments. We've gone to test them everywhere from underwater in the extreme environments of analogues. We also work in analogs, but these analogues Dona -sarily have to. To simulate a planetary environment. It is simulating some aspect of mission control. So they have a slightly different or they're trying to push some aspect of human spaceflight, maybe 'isolation. So we give them our tools, and we get feedback. I've gotten to go to places like volcanoes and the mission under the water in underwater. The Arctic mission control of Johnson Space Center. I'm sorry tool has been up in space station. So that was also very exciting. Pretty cool mission control is the the brain of the space missions, right where they're controlling. How would you describe it? Yeah. So mission control. So we have astronauts up in space ation, and they're super busy and the whole entire space station is manage by a huge team of controllers back on ground. And so they're located physically in Johnson Space Center, but there's also different smaller mission controls. I'm in Europe in Japan, and we have another one in Alabama. We also actually have one here. Nasa Ames, and they all coordinate to make sure that the space station is healthy that all the science payloads are working and that we're keeping the science the sorry. The astronauts working if they have any questions, we keep them healthy. So did you bring a photo? I think she did. And this one has a really cool background story. Yes. So this is a picture of me in at NASA Johnson Space Center in mission control. So this is when we did our first appointment of our tool up in space station. So I got to sit down in mission control. And I got to talk on the loops, which is just the the way they talk that the the communication loops that they have and. Yeah, it was very excited. We got to talk to the astronauts and work with them that whole week that we were there through your voice is forever like down in the NASA record. So I was actually very hesitant to talk during during the mission and one of my colleagues was sitting in the front room. So there's actually multiple not only are there thousands of people that multiple rooms so sitting in one of the back rooms and someone in the front room calls over, and it's like, please give me a status on playbook. That's our tool and so forced me to actually talk on the loop. So that might Boyce was forever. Tempted to say Houston, we have a problem. I actually very hesitant about talking because it is they are listening to so many conversations that I didn't want to like add to that problem or add to that workload. So I was actually very much like I'm gonna just be here. Unless I have to talk them only gonna talk, but he called me out..

"So like that's like how are we found out that we had like a group of meteorites so different from the rest and people started to wonder if they could have been come from mars because the minerals in them were similar to what we thought we knew was on mars and then so this group was like finally confirmed to be for mars when we sent a lander tomorrow we measured the atmosphere unlike isotopes in the atmosphere like they're different ratios where the same ratios that were like trapped in bubbles in these rocks and so we're like yep there for mars and then where do you put the meteorites like do they get stored under like lock and key so rare they well it depends who found them okay so like nasa has like missions to antarctica to collect meteorites and like just some desserts i think and so those are property of nasa and you can like apply to study them but you you can only ever borrow them they are owned by nasa and their store to johnson space center in houston yeah but like people can also fine muret on their own and then i think that's their meteorite depending on where they found it how often do areolla just's planetary geologists have someone say yo i found a meteorite and you're like that's olympic granite like how often does that happen oh yeah yeah people like bring me rocks all the time and asked me if there meteorites how do you how do you know that they're not sometimes i can just be like that's an earth rock because it looks like yeah that's a long for granted so like meteorites often have like a fusion crust which is when it's all glassy on the outside of the rock and that's like from heating up when it entered the atmosphere so that's like one thing that we can tell and then like there are certain things that we only see in meteorites like this coal metal powder and called a vid munson pattern and it's like a crazy like kind of etching looking thing it by the by these cross hatch patterns in meteorites are caused by apparently nickel iron crystals and they're credited to australian painter named ready count awas von beck bilman stocking which honestly would be such a great name for a cat anyway he discovered the patterns he was like whoa look at these patterns so we named him vin vince dominant in his honor and then we found out later that a british guy with a way more boring name william thomson discovered them like.

"Active that uh you know so they're they're very excited at the performance all right i should have been hanging out with you guys everyday's apart low um but yeah just to see the things he had like you said that you've been working on for so long took come together any fire him up and they work i can see that being like oh my gosh yes yes this is doing what i wanted it to dea that was eight years on the uh from the johnson space center standpoint it was kind of a almost will be benign because we had already wrung out her chamber and create it'll be got rid of lot of any issues we have there so you know we were able to help create this environment like it would leave the hurricane came in all the rains and floods the we had some issues of the building but the telescope never knew anything was going on because all of the the the facility of systems operated as we wanted him to and we really never lost anything so um you know it wasn't the same excitement for us as it was for the tells go because we had been doing a series of testing and got rid of all our bugs yoho but it's i almost one of things that bore testing from creating the environment doing all that is a good thing because we don't want to be testing any our stuff out or having any issues with our stuff when we were really trying to test the telescope at this point so it was great to ring all that out and and see their excitement del as they were able to test the telescoping really get to an understanding to really prove that that optically is working as expected in all the little of requirements at passed down from some type of science objective were met said yes and that's that means that you dig your job right you provide the environment for these guys yeah at a team here a johnson did yes you and your team absolutely fantastic.
