"So i when they had so they had emailed us about being chosen to be on the list prior to light the george floyd thing that the civil rights movement that was that was going to happen and When a email me. I was like okay. So i'm either going to if i want to do this. I'm going to go get to cover or i'm not gonna do it and that was. That was my thought process. Going into it so i really just wanted to represent all the things that i stand for and what was important to me and i shot this. I'm printing tour. I shot this before. I can't remember if i shot it before. George floyd or not. I think so but it was really important because i i want everything bike. The wind and the glass was black by makeup for black people. The dress was a black designer. The tablets says june t lake. I wanted to represent black. Miss it is kinda like reminiscent of like the statue of liberty like that's it was just fully liberation and that is how i feel the most liberated like in my skin with my people in an. I'm just trying to free some people in that. Would that's exactly what i went for. And i was just like this is definitely going to be a little political for them. So they're either going to put me on the cover or they going to kick me out. And i had to come to terms with and be okay with either one of them and i was. I was like i'm right with either of you. Decide this too much for your debts by won't do it like i literally just won't be involved in the thing. I'm not changing it though. So i didn't really give him an option. I didn't say these things to them. I kinda just showed up i. I chose a place that i was like. Okay what looks like. I'll be standing like the statue of liberty as very intentional. About like everything laid superintendent. I knew exactly how i wanted it to look. I knew where. I wanted it to feel like i knew i had to shoot at twice weeks apart. Yeah so the first time i shot it was in the sweltering sun lake sweltering light it looks like glistening bribe glowing on sweat in the and then i had to shoot it in the rain. It was raining because they they said they didn't feel like they felt like the sun. Shots were too bright so they asked me to shoot again. Innovate does the shooter. And it's like it's. I had to have my daughter there in the street that we shouted on like super busy street is so all all ties. I like what. I look at my daughter to make sure she doesn't registry. Is she three at the time. Dido making sure she doesn't go. Industry in in the in. The rain tried to present legs. Not raining is the first time you know it was hot and i was begging but my daughter was this i could concentrate a little bit. More with the seconds is open. I mean it was it was it was a lot. It wasn't a you know you have this this this phone inara trying to take pictures of you through the following through zoom. You hear it kinda here. The camera click eight. But you don't know they're actually taking pictures. Rooms it was. It took a lot to get that cover And i but i. I knew like as like i'm not going to at the time i didn't know that i would have been the first black woman which is like the but really also what. Yeah exactly. I didn't know so when i would. I would be the first black woman and then i realized the late after. I just kept telling my friends because we weren't supposed to tell anybody so the the two or three people too. I did too. I just told them. I'm going to get this. I'm going to cover like if i'm gonna to do this cover. They were just like you crazy. I'm like i. I mean age. Aim high why not also like it made the cover inks for me. It made all the statements that you wanted to make a. I think it's because it's so striking like you say in scott old of the power but also the politics involved i. I was very very pleased to save the magic of so. We're going gonna kill me running time. It's like it's just such a good conversation. So i need to ask you about actual wine. Obviously and it is the highly unwind put costs so i should probably ask you why you do have a particular affinity for peanut wall but i wanted to actually if there is maybe in particular italian wine. That's you'll you'll go to. If you have a favorite reach. I love narrow and love narrow. Love love love. I think it's just so underrated and the thing is it's so ford -able but also i haven't had a producer that was bad. I haven't had a band narrow. I've had a bad piano before. But i've never had a bad narrow and i also i love a good barbera. I think that barbera is are are like to me like the italian pinos like obviously pinos are italian. Pianolas italian nawar but they kinda serve the same purpose in the sense of You know their their food winds but they're also easily to drink an italian wine like obviously in the last couple of years. They've come down a little bit near more approachable early on but italian wines. When i was coming up as like a dream bet. So i had this affinity for barbera because i could just drink it like it. Didn't have to wait or was it like fifty years old or twenty years old like you know like i have some barbero zone. Barbara's goes in but bottles in there. That are older. And i still know about to drink this interesting. Actually because a couple of guests. That i've asked this question to have also said about better. I think it's a rating under appreciated variety. Because he say you can enjoy with sweden a problem but you can appreciate it can be approached young or you can have rights Winemakers doing ezek in asia.

There's a presence on Pinterest as far as I'm aware certainly on twitter definitely on facebook and there's a podcast group that's been created by space nuts listeners. It's called the space nuts podcast group like put a lot of thought into that name I. Think there were several votes before they decided upon that one but it's wairoa spice nuts listeners can get together and talk to each other quite often questions posed and. Answers very liberal in in in the way they furnished people love talking to each other about these things whatever the to- topic might base. So check it out if you if you haven't joined the Space Nets podcast group yet a highly recommended are heading there occasionally and and occasionally make a a a a remark but it's really for the listeners They're the ones who wanted to put together so. that's where you go. Of course, the Spice Nets, official facebook page is there as well, and you can enjoy that too, and of course, youtube you can listen on Youtube and fondest they and unaware else so many other places. Now let's let's go to this next story, which is something a little bit different for us because it's it's about listening. To The music of the Milky Way as reported by the astronomy now, dot com website should give them a credit because I've put up this piece of audio. This is really really interesting what sort of led to this doing our I think it's come about because. People. You know that there are many different ways of looking. At the universe until this isn't a novel, a view and different way. Just being put together by scientists Chandra x Ray Observatory and in fact. Yes astronomy now has carried the story, but the Chandra x Ray Observatory website has. Has Information on this. So basically, Chandra is not as flagship mission fags ran strongly is with the Hubble one of the great orbiting observatories. And the scientists Chandra what they've done is they've said, well, we've got images of the Milky Way taken by all these mob whistle between telescopes. On they and that gives US A. Very multi wave band view of the Milky Way until what they've done is they've merged images from the Hubble telescope. So that's the visible ultraviolet from the Challenger X Ray Observatory. So that's x ray images of the Milky Way and the space, the space telescope, which is no longer operational but. A did actually observed the milky way in the infrared wideband. So taking these three. Really. Because you've got ultraviolet in there as well from Hubble. Very very different wavebands a made a composite image of the Milky Way and then they. Suddenly. Fight it and the Sunday fixation process says okay. Let's. Look at the picture and at from top to bottom, imagine that you're going from Haya to low notes. So that gives you at a you get a paying in the middle range of the of the musical scale that not somewhere in the middle of the image and he's caused the Ping would because by a point of light, a drone would because by an extended object something which which covers many many pixels in other words a big part of the image. Then, they give it a tone which depends on the instrument which was used to make the the that particular part of the. Of the image in other words the Hubble or the Chandra or the Spitzer. Telescope?

Is it a play all option a love that but I think you get the listen to the backwards and are not episode? One Ninety nine to one. I think they just play backwards. It's good it's really gauge. So thank you for following on Youtube or twitter or instagram or facebook. Where wherever it issue you listen to Spice Nets now fred. We're GONNA talk about an old friend. We've already mentioned the Hubble Space Telescope. I was stunned in amazed When you sent me the idea of discussing this. Hubble turns thirty on the twenty fourth of April which may or may not have already happened depending on when people. Listening to this podcast. Twenty four th of April so at that all began in nineteen ninety did and It was very exciting. Of course because we've been in well of astronomy. We'd be watching this alone time. It was delayed of course because of the Challenger disaster in Nineteen eighty-six. The telescope was supposed to be launched. I think in one thousand nine hundred six in the aftermath of the Challenger disaster it was it was delayed until the twenty fourth of April. The story I'm sure you're not spoken about this before that. We were privileged in the world of astronomy to have a daily updates from the commissioning of the telescope and to It was launched on the twenty fourth of April and to orbit Shortly after that bill the final orbits took a little while also started than a process of commissioning and we will Kind of waiting for these gorgeous images because the eternal there was this era with a mirror of the world's most perfect mirror might to their own prescription and which was eventually corrected in nineteen ninety-three and you get an optometrist into orbit. That is just not an easy to do. It was some contact lens into But that's right. Yeah it's this special mission. That did that was. I think one of the great fatal time because the hospital is actually quite high obesity. Remember it's six hundred kilometers which was certainly at the the extreme end of the shuttle. Space Shuttles Rachel Permission Anyway. That's the backstory. What we now have of course is thirty years of fantastic work not just in imaging but in spectroscopy and all the other clinical signs strong due to prove the universe. But we've we've got this now this huge talking back catalogues hopefuls. Go about cataloged makes the space not one like peanuts. Then you Allah grief lawyer jokes like that. The Day who is still I was asked. I was very honored to be by the Broadcasting Commission to choose my top ten Hubble images which I did and the now the ABC's website. And I thought you know just very quickly. It might be nice just to go through them and tell you. I think they're exciting. If you if you think that is appropriate to.

"Scale space nuts now before we move on to some questions on a shot at to carry braun carey is <music>. Someone who's asked us a couple of questions in recent times but she came to me the other day and said i wanna start a space nuts podcast group so that space knots what's fans can all talk to each other which i thought was a great idea so i went to a producer hugh and before i could even ask him the question. He messaged me. This was the very the next day instead. I'm thinking of starting a spice nets podcast grip and i said well you need to talk to carry and so they've spoken to each other and now we have a space nats podcast group on facebook and it's called this space. That's podcast group so if you would like to join and talk to other people people who listen and maybe get to know some of the space nuts that have been following app podcast very long find. The space nets podcast group and asked asked to join also yes okay. I'm supposed to vet everybody but i think most people want to join a group like that pretty genuine anyways so have a look at the space nuts podcast group on facebook and enjoy up and get to know some of your fellow space. He's not s- and while you're at it maybe have a look at the patriots page patriots dot com slash space nuts fred we have now got thirty seven patrons and who was supporting podcast which i think is fabulous. Thank you thank you thank you to everybody who who's been willing to spend a couple of dollars a month just to throw into the coffers so that we can keep going <hes> we didn't ask for this. It was an idea from from one person and it's sort of grind from the fabulous. I really appreciate it so sodas fred <hes> everybody involved so it's fabulous nap fred. We've got some questions questions to get to hi. Andrew and freight i wonder fred might be able to get my head around the astronomical term opposition. If something is in opposition to the sun or the moon is it on the opposite side of the visible sky or is it on the opposite side of the planet. That's a question that's come from denise challinor. Hi denise thank thank you. That's a great question. It is it is a great question because it goes to the you know the basics of observational astronomy on the answer usually what it convenes is when an object is on the opposite side of the sky to the some so for example when jupiter is is in a position it means is the son says jupiter rising's so i i would have witnessed an opposition this morning when i was on on the moon setting and the sun was a better is that's right so we call that kind of we give that sort of opposition especially because they full moon yeah. We're in a sense. Oh denise questions <hes> she she said exactly what it is on the opposite side of the visible sky yes <hes> <hes> which means that often you know when you see jupiter when it's the opposition you can't see the sun because it's below the horizon so nights that's fine but it also means that <hes> exactly as she says in the second bit of a question is on the opposite side of the planet. Yes it is because our vantage point is from the planet so we're seeing it on the other side of the planet but it really means it. It's opposite the sun so the the going to say the opposite is it which is the wrong word but the anticipated antithesis of opposition something code conjunction and that's when two things are close together in the sky so opposition is when something's opposite the sun in the sky conjunction can be either something being close to the sun and that happens with jew pitcher as well the other side of the all you can talk about the moon and the planet being in conjunction or planet and a star things getting close together in the sky cold conjunctions any sort of look at them for too hard and too long you get conjunctiva slightest exactly that's where it comes from. Gosh they see what you everything thing. In this show we do medicine and slow jumbo pretty so rubbish. There's a lotta mumbo jumbo. The most important thing on the planet capes assign yeah yeah okay so i think we saw that one. That was pretty indeed. Kinda leads into the next one because it was about to say was that doc is basic. Astrology is what we've just been talking about so go to the next question and people will understand why mentioned that now this comes from dan <hes> of gorgan but he formerly lived indaba which is where i am in central west new south wales and there's a personal connection between toy dan and myself as it turns out high space nets thanks for creating such a brilliant podcast is talking about aspirin. The way can explain mind-bending unbendingly complicated ideas and concepts such and such simple terms. He's a simple man is it true and rare gift. Andrews humor often makes my sides hurt but it's mine minor as well double for that for that dan i recently played <hes> my mother and episode to which you replied that she knew andrew quite well as his children attended tended rainbow cottage where she worked in the office. I think i know who he's talking picture my mind i was hoping fred could explain the difference difference between astronomers cosmologists. Astrophysicists etc is i feel as though i've underestimated what an astronomer does space nuts as the bed best podcast on the the internet by far. Dan elicited at one. Yeah thank you. We appreciate a good question. It is a great question and it's one that you know. I'm glad it's been us because we've never talked about this before. Not really you know we we see when we watch the media. We see these different terms. They used to describe people whereas once upon a time we would older astronomers the tournament actually while astronomy signs odds comes from greek think australia star nomo is number so it's about numbering the stars which different checks checks it from astrology which is when you break it down into its greek. It's words about the stars so astronomy. Astronomy technically means counting this but actually of course it means anybody who studies the stars now in the eighteen sixties six days the lights eighteen sixties we could suddenly work on the physics of the stars by analyzing the light from stars. It was a man called william huggins who was an english astronomer. He basically invented the science of astrophysics because he devised the way that you could break down around the light of a star and reveal its component elements in the physics of what was going on there so that was that was my nostril physics was born and then you know a lot of people started calling themselves astrophysicists lie. I don't know i always think astrophysicists when i hear people introducing themselves as an astrophysicist today. It sounds slightly pompous to me because basically what you are in it is an astronomer who's who's doing physics so most of most astronomers astro physicists as well so they necessarily dylan delineate yourself as though i am a nostril to drag out program even lower the the bachelor on the australian version of the show is climbing to be an astrophysicist and <hes> thinki- runs a petrol pump off tonight. I'm i'm just going up slightly a little bit about this gentleman yes. He did study astrophysics but he's not doing it at the above has an interesting checkout chico's tree carbon what he's doing and let planetary block he does. He seems like i. I should should should explain under the but never seen the show that he's party but i did see a news item about. It looks like a crime is i was watching the wrong channel. That's your problem. Anyway probably channel surfing so astrophysicist is in many ways distant astronomer with you know with a fancy title and and the same is true i guess with the other specialisms within astronomy so you get to more specialised ideas so because mullah gist a which downs asked about is somebody who's special field is the origin johnnie lucien of the universe. That's what kills me is all about. An astrobiologist is somebody who's interested in the origin of life and how life doc might be found throughout the universe but that really all lumped under the heading of astronomers or if they feel if they feel so inclined astrophysicists because they're pretty well astrophysicists as well real time soldiers aside and astronomy is more of a broad spectrum role. Maybe that's right so i've always called myself on astronomer because you know i try and do a bit of everything. An astronomy is the topic that <hes> has five me up since i was a kid with with some fairly big helpings of space science as well which is now a different branch of a you know hundred years ago astronomy include studies of the planet says well but now that has become space until planetary science <hes> the topic is broken up into his you in some cultures if i put it that way fantastic all right. Hopefully that dilemma dan. Thanks for asking asking the question. Say mom for me. Tell the kids are doing well by the way they are really flourishing very proud of them so we'll move onto our next question john hi fred and andrew. How both our hope you're well. Yes we are ending the question. That was the question he says. I've just signed up as a colonel on your oh. Patriotic cats are very worthy cause. I think he said so. Thank you for that. We really appreciate it. I have been interested in physics. Astrophysics particle physics zeke's for a very long time but only really got into it once i read stephen hawking's popular published works and started listening to space that space time sister program <hes> with stewart gary. I'm interested to know what kind of exact address from earth in terms of where we sit in the galaxy spayed and motion and then the local the group virgo supercross outside esser cholesterol veasley and any neighb- avoids super voids and how those things may be moving and if the universe itself itself is turning spinning as well as expanding. That's a question i've never thought of is the universe actually spinning while expense so that those the question and anyway let me know when you can put it on the show right now andrew morton that question comes from so yeah he's asked last <hes> quite a cluster of super cluster of questions really yeah that's right. It's a good question because a picture of where we are depends really on the framework that you looking so yes we're we can easily identify default position on the surface of the earth by latitude longitude and that means that we've speed as well as speed of rotation about the earth which is actually around about sixteen hundred kilometers per hour on the equator the latitude where we are an andrew it's roughly fourteen hundred and fifty kilometres now we're going eastwood's at that speed and of course near you get to the poll the low of the linear eighties so we're already talking about movement that we don't feel bill that's because of gravity and and so on then you can say well aura that the earth is the is the third rock from the sun. It's orbiting around the sun is gone orbital motion which is about thirty kilometers per second <hes> so the mo the earth moves through its own through his <music> own guy in about seven minutes at that speed. This is pretty fast so relative to the center of the solar system. We're also moving..

"Welcome back to the podcast some Lucia here with you. Every back recently was the fiftieth anniversary of the Apollo Eleven landing on the moon which was a pretty significant technological event and as such things at tends to make you cast your ought to the sky but then see what you have able to on the grand as well and I thought well these might be an opportune time to have a bit of a look at service called Admiral Ground Station. Now this allows you to easily control satellites and ingest data with a fully managed ground station has a service and one of the reasons why wants to talk about this. There is probably the coolest seal commands ever get to that Lantis especially what's grand station well. It's a flea managed service that lets you control satellite deadlock communications prices data and Scalia operations without having to worry about building managing your own grand station infrastructure now said lots used for a wide variety of why more than you might suspect now obviously it's used for things like with a forecasting service imaging communications and via broadcasts and grand stations actually the core of global satellite networks because you may have the satellites up in the sky which is not easy to do but they've got to talk to something on the ground now these grand stations are the facilities abilities provoked those communications between the grand and the satellites in Spice Nets are they have to build your own or obtained long term contracts with grand station providers often. You have to do this in multiple countries because you need enough opportunities to contact satellites. What's as I opened the gloves because non geostationary <hes> said lots move around which makes it Kinda tricky and then once you have all the data that you collecting off your satellite service storage networking close to the antennas to process store and transport the data from the satellites <hes> what you might call undifferentiated heavy lifting of interacting with us Ettelaat so what is grand station too well it actually gives you direct access to Ida services and the global infrastructure including low low latency global fiber network located where you're Dada is down linked into the activist grand station so what this means is you can easily control satellite communications?.

"The not reported feels good. Hello yet again. Thank you for joining us on the space nuts podcast. My name's Andrew Dunkley, your host, and with me as always is professor Fred, Watson, astronomy at large hullo, Fred Andrew, how you going very. Well, how are you? Yes, I'm surviving nicely. Thank you. It's good to hear. Danley minutes since you told me. Anyway, let's talk about this week's episode episode one hundred fifty nine of the spice nets podcast. We got to look at a situation that I find quite surprising, but having worked in radio thirty five years, or whatever it is and radio is very common radio. Waves are very common in the universe. But now it's been discovered that they might be a ridge of plasma emitting radio waves, connecting to galaxy clusters which just sounds mind boggling, when you consider that the limit of radio signal in spices, fifty light years or something. So this, this is rather fascinating. We will also knock off a couple of questions in what is yet? Another shortened version of our podcast. We got to look at a question about, doc matter pushback from Dr Robert, Scott. Thank you, Robert, and Kevin Rutherford's asked us about the Michelson Morley experiment. Expand. Could be the michelson-morley experiment, depending on how you pronounce his name. But. It looks like Kevin's detected could be a contradiction in that experiment. And well, we'll, we'll investigate that tiger a little bit of work to figure that one out. But first, Fred, let's look at these, these radio waves that same to be sort of working between these two galaxy. Clusters sounds rather fascinating. It does indeed. And it's something that's been suspected for decades, actually that we would find something like this. And it probably means we will eventually find a lot more of these. So what's happened is that two clusters of galaxies. And of course, galaxies are these huge aggregations of stars and gas and dust, one of which we live in coal the Milky Way galaxy but we know that galaxies coming clusters, two of them, which have been studied in data will have shown a, an interesting thing between them. These two galaxy clusters. The, the not close together that, that, you know, they are relatively close together on the sky. But when you look at the scale at you talking about this is millions of light years apart that they are eight maybe a little bit unexpected that you'd find the bridge of material between them. But clearly people have been expecting this because astrophysicists have been looking for it. So the two galaxies rejoice in the name of I- bell zero three double nine zero four zero one, and you might notice those numbers early to apart which tells you that these two clusters next to one another galaxy clusters, by the way, I usually they usually have the name a ballet in front of them because they were catalogued by an call Joe J bile, who did a lot of these work in the nineteen eighties. She knew he spent some time in Edinburgh, the all observatory where I was working, because he wanted to use some of the photographic material that we had to identify his is galaxy. Clusters. He was a delightful man is no longer with us, but it's nice to season him cropping up every time you talk about galaxy clusters so bell, three nine nine able 4._0._1. these two galaxies, which may well, be about to merge together in other words undergoing a collision, but what is being observed is a bridge of material between them and it's, it's plasma as you said, it's a it's basically energized atoms and the interesting thing about it. And I think this is why this has become such a big story is that to have a plasma like that you need magnetic fields to, to excite it until the ridge tells you that the there is magnetism, connecting these two galaxy clusters. And that's a magnetic field over a very, very large distance. They so if you think about a Bama Ignat, you know, the kind of thing you might put in your pocket. This is something like that. But he's ten million light years long. So. Is the plasma? So it feeds into trying to understand how magnetic fields originate, and, in fact, that's what a lot of modern astrophysics bow, where magnetic fields, come from. It's one of the reasons why a stray Leah is involved with the square kilometer right project, the largest telescope in the world, which will be completed within the next decade in two places one in Western Australia, and the other in South Africa s K is the next big thing in radio straw, me and they will certainly be using that facility to look for bridging magnetic fields between clusters of galaxies because among stated intentions, the stated aims of the S K is understanding the origin of magnetism in the universe. Now it wasn't the Esca that was used for these survey Sion's, but it was a sort of. What you might call a distant cousin of the s k thing called Lofa low fire is the low frequency array. So it's a set of radio telescopes looking at low frequencies from the universe is still is still VHF bound is far as we're concerned in terrestrial communications. But that's low frequency for for astronomy. Low far is actually located in Europe. In fact, in several sites in Europe. I visited one of them some years ago, which was non saying in northern France. And it it's like it looks like a just an array of poll stuck in the ground. It's not elegant dishes or anything like that low far only needs relatively simple antennas, but there are many of them as indeed. They ask it will be yes K, we'll have hundred thirty six thousand ten shape like small Christmas trees are actually shed like large Christmas. Trees, made our Benko hung. Is that's what it looks like. But, but he's very high tech stuff on by this out of there. That's right. It's probably got big civil current as well. I can tell you actually that when they made the prototype of that. And they used to actors have base for, for each of these antennas, and the several thousand ten is in the prototype, model the Pathfinder, they actually used a concrete slabs with holes in the middle, which they bought secondhand from the post office in the United Kingdom. Because they were they were telephone manhole surrounds, you know, you have a manhole cover way at the bottom of the holy you've got these telephone cables with a metal cover on it, while this, they've got a concrete surrounding, and somehow the square kilometer array, people found a cheek deal to buy a couple thousand of these manhole cover areas. Yeah. That's that was the base of their of the base of their prototype right now to change the design because they realize. Is that for hundred sixty hundred thirty six thousand of these things it was going to get very expensive in second non hills. So they thought of another way. Debate anyway. So that will be what they love frequency square kilometer array. Component in a strategy will look like but lo fi has, as you know, the one in Europe has essentially made this great breakthrough that we found the fields between clusters of galaxies. I'm sure the story will move on as the squad killer Mehta awry evolves. We might find that there there's a web of magnetic fields, connecting all galaxy clusters that could be one of the discoveries that might be made and that would play in directly play into trying to understand where my take fields, come from opens up a question in my mind because as I understand it. I Bill, I three non non L for I one merging. Yeah. And Al galaxy is guide to merge with the drop of the galaxy. So one wonders, if we'll start sort of exchanging these materials it could be. It could be already happening, Andrew because that will be something that. From our vantage point will be very difficult to detect I do have friends in the in the business, though, who are specialists on, on cosmic magnetism might ask them about it, because that's a really good point that maybe galaxy Andromeda which are closing on the speed of is, I think it's around two hundred kilometers per second that closing speed means that they're on a collision course that may already be a bridging material between them that links them in the way that we say these two galaxy clusters Ling really interesting coming well done. Thank astronomy papers, not. Short. An identity dead qualify, but only so two hundred kilometers per second merging. Right. And and how long before the merger happens. It's about three and a half billion years, really does let you know how big the space between. All right. You're listening to space nuts, Andrew Dunkley here with professor, Fred. What's in? Space butts now Fred before we get onto today's questions, something's popped up in the news, which is rather extraordinary, we've, we've talked about space tourism and the organizations, private organizations that are looking at putting people into space sub orbital flight that kind of thing, people get to experience for two hundred thousand dollars a pop or whatever it is zero g for a short period of time, and then glide back to worth we'll get rocketed backdoor or whatever it depends on who they go with us oppose but now Nassar's playing the game. Yeah, that's right. And I guess, this e can put it in context, the context is that the current US government administration sees the private sector, essentially taking over the space station within the next decade. Or so it may even be before that Bobby, where the next five years the. That. Nasa wants to open the station to private industry and that they will eventually private industry will take over the running of the, of the space station for whatever purposes, might be deemed necessary, and one of those purposes could well be tourism. So this is sort of opening gambit in the in the private sector for NASA to start. You know, start opening up the possibility of space tourists now to ease the transition to the from the private sector to the commercial. So from the publicly owned sector to the commercial sector. So we've got the deal that you can now buy. You could buy a holiday on the international space station as you've been able to do before you on this. Well, not really the space station itself. So for about a decade during the early two thousands, a company called space adventures bro- broke the deal between roscosmos the Russian space agency, but a few really wealthy people who wanted to go into space that because in those days as he's now, actually, well, no in days. While the shuttle was still flying. US astronauts were ferried up down to the space station with shuttle, butts, cosmos, went with the Soyuz, spacecraft, which was a three seater spacecraft, but only two or used so space. Adventures, did the stale where a passenger could fill the third seats at there were seven? I think there was seven takers for the day lease that was paid. We know was twenty million dollars for a few guys on the space station. Then it was probably more than double that for the most expensive one. The prices that have been quoted now though are a bit higher than that because. The, the ticket to get there could be as much as fifty eight million US dollars..
