Photographer Richard Mosse on blurring the lines between art
"Now richard. Moss's photographic practice has resulted in some of the most arresting images of recent years as a conceptual documentary photographer. He draws on a range of esoteric photographic media to catch a so much more than meets the eye. Monaco's much. Larry spoke to richard to find out more about his unique and emotive work to those nine. I went to iraq. And i made a series of images essentially architectural project photographic project documenting the us forces who were based in the saddam hussein's palace architecture and saddam. Hussein had about eighty four palaces. All around iraq may which he never even visited when the us military arrived. They were so strategically well located for obvious. Reasons and very defensively built. They made pretty straight forward operating bases so they were occupied by the us military which i found fascinating just the layers of power and expression of that architecturally from the sort of provisional corporate office partitions and cubicles that the. Us army would hastily set up within the very pompous and often poorly built authoritarian architecture of saddam hussein which had a very specific style with some very strange eccentric ornamental features. Such as giant teapots and. Yeah it was very incongruous staff. And i brought eight by ten inch camera there and it'd be like that project and after that i realized frustrated with the medium documentaries over here. It's really so conservative as a language so reductive often. You're just an illustrator for writers texts if you're doing it at oriel which primarily. We're documenta over. Do i wanted to break it apart. Actually i wanted to somehow really smashes just for myself. It was a very personal desire to essentially as an expression of the frustration of with my own practice. I was at that time. Kodak was on its path to bankruptcy was announced had announced the discontinuation of this infrared film. Kodak erico two thousand ten. I think says nine around the time and so i thought well this is a wonderful way to unpack a documentary subject. I don't know what may be quite yet. But i gathered as much as i could off ebay and wherever it was being made extinct and i sort of worked backwards from the medium which i always tend to do actually to find to find effective subject or subjects that could be more adequately conveyed to be elevated through the medium through this particular medium and reading was a starting point for me over. The last ten years i've been working with spurred you call them infra-red film technology's very interested in the unseen registry invisible light forms as the way often metaphorically telling very complex documentary narratives more powerful way and to refresh very saturated subject matter for example the refugee crisis unfolding across europe the middle east north africa. Everybody photographer was out there taking pictures. And they all tend to look rather similar. And i really was. After a certain point the imagery just became inherently less compelling and less powerful as language. So i wanted to refresh my own way and i found this bizarre military grade thermographic camera that can image human body heat from thirty kilometres distance. Day or nice. It's classes weapon designed for battlefield situational awareness long-range insurgents detection tracking and targeting. So it was actually part of a weapon. System very sort of activated medium to think through the representation of the refugee crisis and also almost an aggravated one. Really confront the viewer. On some level with their own complicity. I believe and that was my intention to really make people feel that. And i think as an orange has that's one of the only things you can do is to make people feel something so i was working through metaphor aesthetics in this work but with that work with my project incoming its title and it was using this weapons technologies long range border enforcement technology. Thermographic heat-detection camera. I realized i was also operating in certain moments on another level beyond the metaphorical and beyond the aesthetic. And that was the the forensic after understand. The camera sees index heat register. You can calibrate for about forty degrees and anything. That's relatively cooler or relatively warmer within. That given frame is depicted in black or white depending on how you set the the recording set the image. And so something that's black. Could be everything that's warms. The human body would be depicted in black and everything cold surrounding him. Buddy will be waste for example or if you sell it. The other way white hart. It's the opposite. And i was filming this tragic event i've ever witnessed probably ever will. Hopefully it was one of the biggest human trafficking disasters on the gnc and human memory of three hundred people or more were on a on a fishing trawler was had paid to be on that boat from turkey to lead boss and human traffickers just packed that boat too many people who zone designed for perhaps twenty or thirty people so the top deck of the boat collapsed and doing panic entire hull ripped apart and we were able to capture all this from about seven kilometers away with camera designed exactly for this kind of thing and then when the bodies were brought to shore to the harbour of malvo's something store happy it was after dark at this point literally out on the cold stone pier they were lined up on thermal. Br red cross workers volunteers local doctors. Anyone who could could help out. Were were frantically trying to revive these hypothermic victim. Some whom passed out or semi drowned or some had had remain conscious. But we're literally freezing to death. And so they were literally what they were doing. Rubbing life-giving warmth from their hands into the flesh coddled flesh of the these hypothermic victims in front of us on the pier. Desperately trying to sort of transmit life-giving heat back back into them. Now a normal camera of course after dark wouldn't wouldn't be abc's very much let alone. Would it be able to see the trace of that of that transmission of warmth which the thermal camera was able to do incredibly effective articulation of exactly the crux of of the emergency unfolding around us. It was a of very powerful test. Testimonial footage of the the effort survive these people on the scale of a trauma around us. That was richard moss and do head over to our website to the full version of that interview.
Could We Be Entering an Era of Commercialized Space Exploration?
"I S A great deal to Nasr's defunct Space Shuttle Program Green Lit by then president Richard M Nixon in nineteen seventy two. This initiative gave the world its first reusable spacecraft from nineteen eighty one to two thousand eleven NASA astronauts into orbit on American made shuttles. These were often used to transport portions of the ISS during its construction on July Twenty first twenty eleven. The space shuttle. Eric came to an end. As the Atlanta's orbiter returned from its final mission with the program just continued. I S bound astronauts grew dependent on Russian Soyuz rockets. Then the law of Supply and demand took over for nearly a decade. No other rockets were capable of sending people to the ISS. All astronauts bound for that station had to be launched out of Kazakhstan Baikonour cosmodrome which is spaceport least to the Russian government and by April of two thousand twenty. The Russians were charging eighty six million dollars to include foreign astronauts in their Soyuz missions. Another Soyuz rocket launch is scheduled for October. And Breitenstein says NASA is currently negotiations to book a seat. Nevertheless it's hoped that the SPACEX x crew dragon will end the spaceflight monopoly. Rydin Stein explained. We want the russian-american relationship in space exploration to remain strong. We see a day. When Russian cosmonauts can launch on American rockets American astronauts can launch on Russian rockets by now space x the International Space Station? Have a fair bit of history. Using unmanned crafts the company has delivered supplies to the orbiting laboratory since two thousand twelve. The crew dragon aced dress rehearsal and March of two thousand nineteen when it left. Merritt island on the nose of a spacex Falcon nine rocket and autonomously docked with the International Space Station. Five days after its departure the crew track and returned to Earth splashing down in the Atlantic Ocean. Some one hundred and forty three miles or two hundred thirty kilometers a Florida's eastern coastline. But that trip only passengers were in earth shaped plush toy and a dummy named Ripley AB- named after Sigourney Weaver's character Ellen Ripley from the alien movie franchise a flight later. This month will be the first time that live. Astronauts will be on board space x crew mission director. Benjamin Reed said at the May First Conference Dragon will be fully autonomous. Expectation is that can carry the crew safely to the station and bring them home without direct intervention even so hurley and Bankin are set to take control for a short period before the crew dragon. Docs they'll be able to guide the vessel using touch screens or physical switches. Both options are available for certain portions of the journey while aboard cruise expected to test out such components as the maneuvering thrusters and in my own. Mental Control System. And then there's the spacesuits one piece outfits designed by SPACEX to supply the astronauts with oxygen provide the appropriate temperature and maintain pressure spacesuits plug into the crew dragons chairs when their wares. Sit down read. Said suits also have an integrated communication system so that the crew can communicate through their helmets. Neither Bank nor Hurley are strangers to low earth orbit. Lincoln's logged more than seven hundred eight hours in space and Hurley a member of NASA's last shuttle era crew back in two thousand eleven but every mission presents its own unique challenges like the rest of the world NASA space x and these two astronauts had to make adjustments during the krona virus taking extra precautions. So what does that mean? Both SPACEX and NASA have implemented social distancing protocols like keeping work desk six feet or two meters apart at their respective control rooms. Meanwhile the cruise getting a wide. Berth contact with them by any other team. Members has been minimized and many training sessions have been done. Virtually and the safety of is S. crew the astronauts will observe a preflight quarantine for May sixteenth until the launch on May twenty seventh. Right now. There are three space fares two Americans and a Russian living and working aboard the International Space Station. The length of Benjamin's and Harley stay at the facility will be determined at a later date it could last anywhere from five to thirty days when the time to head home arrives the crew tracking should undock Disley and deliver. Its human charges to Florida by way of the Atlantic. There's a long proud tradition of civilians gathering near the Kennedy Space Center to witness rocket launches. Unfortunately NASA is discouraging people from following suit this time lest they spread or contract Cova nineteen. But you can tune in and watch launch online for just the fifth time in history NASA astronauts will be test flying a new type of spacecraft should bankin an early complete their mission objectives. We may yet see a golden age of space tourism and innovation with private industry taking on development roles long adopted by governments Breitenstein. Said this really is the next major step. In commercializing low earth orbit and having a really vital low earth orbit economy in which NASA is one of many customers.

Living with Your Limiters On
"Have a contemplation for you do you live life with your limiter on eliminator to me is something that capture output you ever read the manual manual for a new car. When you read in the specs page it always tell us what the top speed is and then in brackets says electronically limited to. Do you like two hundred thirty kilometers an hour or something boring like that. Why would you do that. Why would you have a racehorse under the hood and then cap it to limit the fun. You can have well of course safety legality and all those other things. Come into play when you're dealing with a car but when you're talking about your life why would you WanNa do that now. Here's what's interesting is that this came up because of a conversation. I had with a very senior executive this person's totally visionary totally inspiring totally masterful admire very much but the one thing I noticed is that they still. I do want to ask permission before hitting the go button now. I loved the go button and what I struggled so much to understand. Is that knowing that your failure to leap is one inhibits and hampers innovation and momentum. Why on Earth would you not seek to interest back to identify. I find that behavior and to correct it. Because let's face it. If you have a great idea or something you WanNa do or something you WanNa try one. Just go build it because if you're into into asking for permission rather than asking for permission to start WanNA use spend an hour or ten hours building. Something prototyping something and then bring that to the permission conversation. It's the same conversation if you're accountable to accompany and you WanNa make sure you have the go ahead to spend resources on a certain collective. There's someone need clear that with your having a permission conversation the other way but why don't you think the ten personal hours to create some additional value to create some momentum but most importantly to create something that other people can react to because then if you've created something impactful if if you've created something undeniable. They can't ignore that. It's a lot harder to decline the idea and I say this often if you're working in the kind of place where they frown frown on you for taking some of your own time to build a prototype to endeavor. You are working in the wrong place. They're just not there yet. The mindsets aren't right either. Oh you got change him or you got to change meaning go bring your talents and skills to someone who is ready for them someone who wants them values them the more you you do this agile thing and the more you do this bad ass. Agile thing the more. I think you'll find yourself looking around and recognizing how many people run with their limiters on on cap themselves out two hundred and thirty kilometers an hour when they've got the engineering in their belly to do twice that we're five times out are ten times. That first step is. Make sure it's not you. It's pretty easy to spot. I've said this before. Look for times when you hear yourself saying great excited. Let's do it but I I have to wait until I I have to check with or I I gotTa make sure or want to think about a little longer here we are preaching agility and yet do we practice it. Do we minimize upfront. Planning by sketching things on Napkins by drawing ideas on the Whiteboard so that we can very quickly get to the point of certain enough that it's worth trying that it's a great idea but after you've done that minimum due diligence and I mean minimum shopping. The idea around after that is best done not with words but with product in your hands things you can see touch feel sense experience. This is the most important part if you treat your creative backlog as something when you have to get permission for I guarantee there are other areas of your life. Were you've got limiters on professional development. You're training your career escalation. Your future is an entrepreneur's business. Owner your sales prospects your personal and community achievements all all of those things are subject to a governor or limiter that you yourself imposed. That says I'll be ready when or I must wait until what would you be capable. I love if you took all those limiters off today. How fast could you go. And how much fun could you have. And Yeah sometimes. It's dangerous injuries. And Yeah sometimes it's rule bending but that's the very best kind of fun my friends. I don't know what I find that. Once you've discovered this in applied for yourself yourself you look around your friends your colleagues your peers. And you can't help but want to help them do it to the reality is most won't but if you're purposes to change to heal to help to inspire to ignite you're definitely going to want to try
20 Minutes With Brian Keane
"So high Brian. Welcome to the show. Thank you very much for taking the time to speak to me today. How you doing? I'm doing amazing. Thank you so much for having. I'm really looking forward to this conversation. No aures thank you again brought. If you could start off just giving us an introduction to yourself yeah so my name is Brian ranking ranking fitness online. And I'm a former primary. School teacher turned fitness entrepreneur effectively. So to cut a long story short. I was a primary school teacher in London for four years and for two of those years I worked as a personal trainer nighttime walking in a gym with people looking to lose weight get fit or get stronger etc and then it's thousand fourteen. I moved back home him to the west of Ireland where I currently live and set up a one to one personal training business and then over the space of eighteen months two years of living full time at home in order to kind of match the supply and demand because of the amount of people that were coming to me for personal training. I moved my business online and over the last name. Since two thousand fifteen I've been primarily online with the exception of a couple of books books that I rise in the appearances that ideal person in terms of speaking everything else in the fitness ramble. My business is on line. Two programs one a sport specific the other is pure fitness Pacific. Civic and now I just spend my days talking to people like you and working with my online client doing some talks around the world that to kind of communicate with some awesome people. Yeah I've got a pretty awesome lifestyle per minute so long. No definitely greats ahead obviously as well with your podcast. That's another great resource for anyone that wants to find out more about what Bryant Definitely Chatham. We'll talk more about that throughout the podcast. First thing on the touchdown Brian McKnight's obviously you saw your other fitness industry as you said is a PT and did some fitness modeling now use of transitions since doing ultra endurance events. As well what's changed in your own way. You approach your fitness to not to want to make a massive lead so one of the things that I generally always advise people with fitness whether your couch to five K.. An absolute beginner. You've never step foot in the gym or ever done a workout or somebody. That's a near professional athlete or professional professional athletes and their life. If is training you always need to have a goal that you're setting in working towards and I'm the exact same with fitness and in two thousand and end fourteen. I started competing in fitness modeling. Embody I believe so stepping onstage and the end of two thousand fourteen I won a pro card fitness. Molly was basically just means that you can compete for more money and in two thousand and fifteen. I was preparing for the World Championships in Las Vegas and a few months prior to that my daughter was born and I remember having this moment where I was getting ready for a show. I couldn't form sentences in my head. Hey I'm so pleased and just hired all the time I remember thinking I'm going to be terrible dad if I keep doing this man. I made that decision there and then that I would do that show in Las Vegas and I did quite well that I came to the world's in Las Vegas and I decided I was stepping away. I needed to set a new fitness goal. This wasn't going to be my life anymore. It was too all consuming for me and and to be honest Charlie for the next eighteen months. I didn't really do anything in the fitness realm. I kind of trained a few days on and off. I always did something in the gym. High intensity interval training bodyweight workout aesthetics. You don't just Kinda messing around with it. But I didn't really have any serious fitness goals. Now I wrote my first book my first book. The fitness mindset which did really well that was sixteen weeks of the bestseller list on Amazon is an eighth consecutive weeks and wrote that in released in two thousand seventeen and after that point when I came off the back of the success of that book I was starting to get that little bit of a hollow auto feeling again Ronn like mine. I haven't set a goal for myself in ages. I haven't had any fitness school. Because I've been so focused on my business so focused on my family so focused on the book at the time and then I was at this event in Tony Robbins business mastery in Amsterdam and I met a friend who I've met a guy who sits become a close and personal friend totten's name and he ran what he told me about was ultra marathons and I had been from a world of played sports all my life football rugby soccer and I'd never heard of an ultra marathon marathons I like really ignorant the ass of the what an ultra marathon committee and he was like an over her marathon distance and he told me about this race in the Sahara called Maratha Saab which is marathon in the sand. It's six back to back marathons self sufficient through the Sahara desert in the north of Morocco and itself supported to carry all your food on your back to give you water checkpoints but evidence self sufficient. We need to have a venom pump within arms reach at all times so that your in case you get bitten by a snake armor. I'm telling you about this event. He did and I was like that sounds insane and planted the seat and I was like a couple of months later signed up for his having never random marathon having never ran and running when it's unfamiliar with the way I look. I'm fair from built like an marathon runner like I'm short and stock Yemeni harsh really built for Durance and I signed up in August two thousand seventeen and then decided that look. I need to start training for the marathon to solve in April of Twenty eight eighteen so I signed up to my first ever marathon there Dubai marathon in January two thousand eighteen Iran with a backpack in thirty five degrees and Dubai. By and from there on I just kept training in April around those six back to back marathons through the Sahara Avenue kind of got hooked and ultra endurance in February of this year around June thirty kilometers through the Arctic circle which was gold old. And now a minute. I'm currently trading for one hundred mile to marathon in Nevada in February. And so that's kind of a long story you've got a medium not long story. Short story brought to a kind of a medium to where I am. Now in the transition from bodybuilding fitness model into running ultra endurance events. Going to challenge my body in a different way then to be honest charity it. It all comes down just needed a goal to work towards because I train hired otherwise 'em and I recommend that to everybody. Listen it's relative like you don't have to run to the The Arctic for some people. It's just going to the gym twice going for a walk around the block after work. When you know you'll be tired or decided body weight program Monday Wednesday and Friday for the next three months? You know it's completely relative. What for me working towards a goal and not wanting Halloween into combat because? I'm not working any specific fitness goal. modest the distance is your Rhode Island oversee pre yourself in his positions blanket. Imagine it was just incredible when you actually accomplish them. Oh it's different. Especially to be honest. There was a huge difference between the first two between Maryland Assab because when Iran six back to back marathons in the Sahara. I'd never done anything like that before I ever marathon which was on the road in a few months earlier and I wasn't sure sure Charlie until I got to the finish line of the six back to back marathons if I was going to be able to finish like there's so many things that could have gone wrong. I was like I just didn't know the article slightly different. I knew I was going to finish that race. And it's probably a different story for different day but I tore my kidneys. Eighty six kilometers from the end of that race and the High A.. Different completely different relationship with pain. In 'cause I powered through for the eighty kilometers off three months after put I powered through honors. And what you get out of these events for me anyway like you just get this massive of net benefit your confidence grows. You feel like you can attack any obstacle comes your way you get really good at separating like real problems from perceived problems so like even in my everyday life in my business with my daughter with my family like I get very good between separating right. This isn't a rea- problem. This is an inconvenience. This can be fixed verses this is this is a real problem I e. There's something wrong with my daughter. There's something wrong with my mom. There's something wrong with the family. Member and ultra endurance gives me that. Because you're just doing that. On a micro basis. Yeah as I said you don't have to to do ultramarathons crazy events to get that people get it from different areas. But it's definitely something I've got. I've got a massive net benefit as a result of

"Talk with his intraday in in discussing the book and and we had some thoughts on it and I wanted to run by you so if you think in this collection there just poems about Dick decolonization about colonialism and they exist alongside poems that are about and I don't just exist alongside bursar interwoven with poems about love poems about sex. do you see these two things love three things love sex and indie colonization is having some kind of connection yes of course the very much entangled in a it's knives. so when I first started realizing that one how one approached love and dating an intimate life could have remnants of the way that colonization unfold so we can reproduce political structures in our end and enter personal lives so in later into my into my early twenties it was very much a deliberate project of mine to figure out how not to bring certain kinds of of of understandings into my relationships are not thinking it as the property relation or or or and bringing my sort of political as stances into the into the into the relationship and meeting people whether I'd stuff of that sort just being as ethical and feminists as possible and and and these things were things you were thinking about when you're reading this collection yes I ever wrote part of the book I near the tail during and in in the aftermath of a of a field a tumultuous relationship so of course that would sort of monopolize some of my thoughts and because I think also with love so much of the world is wagered we lose in when so much and so I I wanted to show how that can all stand in as a kind of synecdoche for decolonization accommodation as larger projects just turning and I'm speaking with Billy ray Bellcore is live in the show last year he won the Griffin poetry prize Canada's most prestigious poetry prize he's an egg you got a new collection of poetry called Indian coping mechanisms I'm gonna get you to read something a little bit later on but but first there's a upon the really stuck out to me I guess visually but also structurally at treaty eight can I know I know we're on the radio you can you can you describe tribute for folks who haven't seen it yet of course the treaty is one of the numbered treaties which go from three one two three eleven SO three eight was signed I believe in eighteen ninety eight and my ancestors in northern Alberta signed it's only about twenty thirty kilometers from where my my family lives now and it is one of these central texts for how we understand Canada and its citizens and its relationship to an indigenous people and I wanted to see what would have been if this text which of course was written in English and there was as many scholars have have taught us that there were spaces of mistranslation in misinterpretation between white indigenous people said two interpreters and translators in what ended up in the official document so I was trying to reveal through a racer what some call the spirit and intent of tree which was a bad living together while sharing the land having a more sort of communal worlds as the basis of what then became Canada and so I wanted also to figure out a way. it may mean for this document to live inside a book of poetry so the entire the the entire sort of central parties for date is in the book most of it is a resurgence blackened uhhuh but I thought what would it mean to put this text into people's hands and I think that would treaties they should they should be in people's hands they should they should circulate in public life with a lot more used in the do you they're open access on the government Canada's website so I wanted to sort of add another level of access to that by putting it in a book of poetry and and blocking out in black and all those words the leading to your poem I thought that was yeah maybe the most powerful work in hand the entire thing it was is there something else I I I I do want to ask not about the work right now but about you after you win that Griffin. prize. is it hard to create under those kind of circumstances Hey you think that. so the short answer is no and the longer answer is that because this one is a world is a written at such an early stage of my artistic development that a fellow with a lot of urgency that I had more to say and I had to wait to say differently and it would as we as we just spoke about it stayed eight that what I say also comes about in different forms with in relation to different Texan poetic traditions so I I very much felt that. I felt I felt empowered to to produce more reading okay now aftermath of the way in yeah you never know right you never know what you're gonna write this thing here and here is kinda like my reading your second record you know they're like you know got the thing first thing that really well and what the hell I'm going to do with the second one but I'm glad you can feel that block yeah I think you're I do think there will be a bit more scrutiny. the I feel like that a book that fathers something like a Griffin when I will always be put under the microscope more much more intensely than the first book but I know you're heading to Vancouver you were saying yeah I'll be starting a position in a in creative writing at UBC there in January I feel about being a profs it's. it's pretty surreal I will likely have students think my age or older than me but I I do think that creative writing programs need indigenous faculty and indigenous students will be newer generations of them will be applying to creative writing programs with much more frequency than ever before big part precisely because there are so many more visible indigenous writers working in Canada today so happy to be a part of that so do shift towards the colonizing creative writing programs yeah it's it's it's in it was a lovely collection I I and powerful collection and something that a lot because of his reading most of it there the it the other night and I'm ever as I realize we're on sort of the eve or I guess where currently maybe depending on when you're listening to this in the middle of a federal election if it felt like a good book to be reading around them great you're gonna be room or home yes another excerpt this one is from and the and brothers so some of you may not know that I have a twin brother and we live pretty different lives he's up in northern Alberta I mean I mean can seem to be on the west coast listening right now this will say Hey he's probably not. loosely. so this is called Indian brothers. loneliness find me drunk in an old Billy rebel cord from. it's important is that wherever I am my brothers perched on my right cheek bone we are twenty four an already too old for our own good. last night felt like our last night they always do this is what makes night nightly in an investigation against a literature of treason. that was the publicly rebel court with an excerpt of the poem Indian brothers Billy ray when the Griffin poetry prize in twenty eighteen he's back with a new collection called Indian coping mechanisms that's a talkie again yeah it was a pleasure and I guarantee you this will not be the last time that you come on the show maybe you should face. maybe..

"So it would take an awful lot of these are a great thing that would be ninety four expect to release the energy from that a large earthquake proof that this really is not the case okay now I want to go back to some of the basics about earthquakes so where we we know that there are plates we know that the plates move that they shipped are they are do they move in different ways I mean do they ever move apart from one another are they moving side by side do they sometimes move where one plate moves a top another plate yes there are different types of earthquakes opening in violence we call them and that can depend on where you're located so far here in the bay area the folks that we see are the one despite the guidelines that we speak Andreas fault where one side slits path the other in other places like off the Pacific Northwest coast we can have what we call center action down and that's when one of the plate in diving down underneath the other one and that kind of area can actually create larger earthquakes for example the Chile earthquake does I think they're really really big earthquake because there's just more of one side in the other side when they split it releases more energy and so the third type of smoking environment is when the plates are spreading apart from each other and that's the three different types of their garments that we see on I made that up that's spreading apart from one in there I did that actually have okay so it does so in here in the bay area I grew up in Hayward that what we always have been told were always good and there was a big movie made about the San Andreas fault that San Andreas is the big one that we have a big one that is likely going to be on the San Andreas fault lately I've been hearing that there's a real concern about the Hayward fault are there faults that we have to be more concerned with than other fall to win the big one happens are we fairly certain which of these false is going to give way unfortunately we really don't know when the next big earthquake is gonna happen aware the next big earthquake is going to happen each earthquakes even happen in places where we didn't even know there was a fault line the only time we can see the evidence of these faults and when there are earthquakes happening along them right sometimes it happens that we have a ball what would you just rector's like for example in and in New Zealand a few years ago there with mark we can you know they don't even know that there was a call where this earthquake happened and so we can always you know be prepared to know that there are three that could happen at any time and any place in the bay area but no we don't you don't know which one and I got next unfortunately can you quantify how much a plate has to move in order to create a really big earthquake like I'm under quite that would do a tremendous amount of damage I would assume in the bay area we're talking about something in excess of US seven would that be what we need to have in order to be certain that there would be a lot of damage and can you quantify how much the plates have to move in order to achieve that level so you could see damage starting I mean even and I can take the pending on where the earthquake is located I mean it for example the rich better make that happen in a fairly remote area there weren't as many people affected the people who did it back obviously it only affected them but there weren't as many people in that area if that many to seven point one earthquake happened directly and early that would have created a lot more damage so partly you know the damages related to where the earthquake happened Kelly to answer your question because the damage from ninety six in a starting their how much movement in the plate to create that I mean is that what determines how big how how what the magnitude of an earthquake is is it determined by how much the the plates are moving yeah it's the area it's beat the rupture area we call it the amount of area that being on the other side right and so for example an average majors that make week might be AT thirty kilometers long on average at bay and with a flick or perhaps one meter and so you know that there's a trade off there between links and let them but that's kind of an average number doesn't seem like very much to create that much havoc does it now I know but you know when the moon when the earth that quickly with one side going past the other side you can create a lot of damage and it says in ways that need to come out from where those that it happened the community a lot of damage so how do you know I mean what's happening weighed down there how how how do you know that the play to slipping and how much they're moving here we are on our network of seismometers that throughout the west coast in the last and we've studied these earthquake happening we can stack them up to a very small earthquakes and so we we just there's a lot of time and then to determine where the third picture happening how big earthquake is happening so at like we're talking about the different types of stalking environment yes right click where they fight each other transaction when it's going down underneath that we can actually tell what type of earthquake it ends by looking at this I think records and enter using these these networks were able to really understand better how the earthquake that happening I I need to take a commercial break but hang with me for a few more minutes one of the things that I want to get to with you is earth quakes you know they've been studied for awhile and I just want to know what's happening what the studies are are revealing you know how much new information there is information that would mean something to me not information that excites scientists necessarily because you guys get excited over things are way over our heads hang out with me and and we will come back and we'll

"Right now to the situation in Syria and the north western province of it live yeah this is the last province that's held by Syrian opposition forces it's been under attack by the Syrian military and there's a big humanitarian problem there which is that more than a million refugees from all over Syria live in it lypso hundreds of civilians have been killed in fighting over the past few months right now the government appears close to taking an important town and important opposition town in it in a clip and enters Ruth Sherlock is following this from Beirut hi Ruth okay so people are talking about this town this oppositional town is very important what what is the town and and why it's so crucial here well the town is called Hon she **** and it's close to a highway that links the major city of Aleppo with the capital Damascus and say this is the highway that the Syrian regime wants to take back this also symbolically very important you know this was an area that suffered a chemical attack in two thousand and seventeen that prompted president trump to launch S. strikes on Syria and it's being controlled by the rebels for years so it would be a big boost to the morale of the regime troops to take it back as of now they seem to have made inroads into the town but the fighting is still on going when a and I as I understand you managed to speak to a doctor in one of the hospitals here what what did he tell you and and what did you learn about the the the situation yes Sir in the conversation I'm going to identify him is Dr admit because doctors have been targeted in this war I and you know he you really sense that because he says he's in one of the main remaining hospitals in the province all that sound medical centers on it does because in this house of I'm in no somehow my now destroyed yeah we lost a lot of people because there is no because their face and see some places are you saying that as well as civilians who died because of lack of access to medical care at in the last few months alone since the fighting ready intensified in April he also knows of at least twenty medical staff that have been killed was working in these clinics a lot of them were hit by Asterix uses many of these people were his friends and you know his hospital has now been inundated with casualties in the recent fighting he says more keep coming about ten minutes that a gene get bombed bit one of the town well to thirty kilometers from here and there is some casualties is count ancillary they were coming thanks you can hear the siren that and she has to and the cool well because the an ambulance was was just pulling up at the moment I I would imagine yeah Ruth that the isn't this an area where you said so many people have have actually come to flee fighting elsewhere yeah exactly there's been over million people have been displaced from other parts of Syria that and now in this area and they keep going north against being pushed up against the Turkish border but that borders closed in the promise that there isn't really anybody anywhere else for them to go aid groups to trying to help with the not really able to cope people of staying.

"But, you know, I think the presentation of those two teams, you know, that say they're Stu, Don and a movie star or audio away round then it's going to depend wetter something happens on the climb on the on the second carry climate. So it's, it's about thirty kilometers from the top to finish. Now let's say just. You know, it's a it's a it's a high hype hypothetical assumption. But let's say there's a break away in their stupid movie stars in their enough. Donna and. The, the guys from roughly steam are struggling little bit on the climb, and all of a sudden, which is isolate. It's Llandough tax. Let's say and he gets a gap now logic would say, okay, you know, we're not gonna we're not going to panic and it's still thirty K the go let him go. And then, you know were bring my team back together. And then we'll chase him down, which is normally what any en- leader with Dewi a leader relies on his theme as long as he can, and until he's is elated than than it's up to himself. Now, what we might see is an attack from the peleton of one of those leaders, whatever Lopez or Orlando or cut up us or even gates try to try to get some advantage and then have the one of the writers in the front. Wait for him. And then basically get that help from that teammates. So, so, basically the, the, the intention of having an Astana and a an a movie star rider in the breakaway good. Be not just to try to win the stage but with the idea ready that one of the guys is going to attack. And so it was soon as he gets a gap over the top the guy waits and basically helps him in the valley in on the flat. Now that's interesting, and that some would never have occurred to me. And that's why why think here I think that's we, we may. We may see something that tomorrow. I mean, especially no. Especially knowing these two teams that's that's their that's their favorite strategy. And so if you see multiple astonishes or mutliple movie stars in the in the breakaway, we, we already know what we can expect on the last climb, and the Pelata..
Are there deep global oceans beyond earth?
"Have good reason to predict that deep global liquid water oceans exists beyond earth thinking about that think about the role of of our ocean here on earth in our biosphere. Now, imagine an ocean that's ten times as deep as ours and global covered in ice potentially with harder thermal vents, and all sorts of interesting chemistry occurring in it. Could it be inhabited? Could there be life microbial or even larger swimming around in that ocean today? Where there's water there's usually like to find out if life might exist that the edges of our solar system. We've I have to get there, and then somehow access the deep hidden waters of these foreign world, that's where robots and other technologies come in when we design these robotic vehicles to go down to the surface sample the surface and ultimately drill or melt through the shell itself. We need to understand what that kind of upper region of Europe is ice looks like feels like and how it behaves Europa one of Jupiter's moons. Planetary scientists think it could have a massive ocean beneath. It's frozen crust. What's really cool about it? Is that on the outside of that moon has about fifteen to thirty kilometer ice shelves overlaying one hundred kilometer ocean? When we look at Europa, we can see evidence of cracks along the surface. We can see salt deposits in these things we think reflected the chemistry of the ocean below to prepare for such a harsh environment. Scientists are training in a place. Not so far. From home, but every bit as alien and Artika. From the Wall Street Journal. This is the future of everything. I'm Anthony green. And article is the coldest and least habitable place on earth. The Wall Street Journal Daniel Hernandez traveled there to meet a robotics team led by Brittany Schmidt. From the Georgia institute of technology. You have to be on your toes about almost everything. And so it's actually kind of a constant battle to keep on top of what's happening. The environment itself can change very quickly. The internet is slow or non-existent phones. Don't really work down here. You know, there's not the normal creature comforts even the ability to really kind of escape from that. So it changes the way the operate is a person. And so you're monitoring all of those things in addition to you know, highly detailed robotics, Bernice group is prototyping technologies that could one day. Help us pro distant planets and moons for signs of life. We drove out on snowmobiles to a section of sea ice blink bike glacier on one side. And a massive iceberg on the other. Think we're having us welcome. It's pretty beautiful out here accolades. Sure is yes. It's so beautiful this whole thing. Right. It's this side and the other side, so we're going to kind of go around and try to figure out if any of its floating or if the whole thing is grounded, which means it's laying on the seafloor. And then maybe do some fun. Check out of the iceberg because we haven't done that yet. But I wanted to work out here since twenty twelve and it's just the right time to be able to take a vehicle out there. It's performing really, well, we've got a few days left of of not too many cracks in the ice too. Many cracks in the ice make dangerous for them to work in the field. Our main science questions here this. How does the ocean affect the ice and vice versa? It's not very well known even here on the earth. And then when we moved to places like Jupiter Zeman Europa, we don't really know how that whole thing will operate and so by asking these questions here, we get really good at measuring them and thinking about the processes. To do that her team is testing underwater robot high spend, the twelve foot machine is bright yellow and looks like a torpedo is Finn is a hybrid autonomous and remotely operated underwater vehicle or an HR V. And what it's basically doing is measuring the properties of the water column the ice and the sea floor and searching for biological communities as well. This one is also a platform for testing sensors, and technology and science questions for future. Exploration of other planets predominantly were interested in icy moons of two bitter and Saturn in this case. Europa our primary target the grand scheme of the project is to develop this vehicle as something that we would want to send to of Europa and look for life there. So we basically have as small of a vehicle as possible with as much scientific instrumentation on it as we possibly can. I'm Chad Ramey. Grads. Student at the Georgia institute of technology, and I write software for Iceland. While we hear an Antarctica. This is the closest analogue we have to Europa, but we're interested in science. So how is is forming and melting and what does the chemistry of the water looked like and how many dissolved organic matter are in the water, what are the oxygen levels. So we'll be putting the robot in the water for three deployments today. We're really interested in the grounding line. So where the glacier actually departs from the ground and starts floating on the water. And then also we have this massive iceberg that we're going to drive the robot up to and have a look at because I spur are awesome. The grounding line is important because it can impact how stable a glacier is it's one of the places melting occurs. So when are you guys gonna launch? So now, we're getting ready for our first full systems test. We'll go through each of our sensors make sure they're all operating who make sure all of our thrusters are good. And then we'll be ready to go. And we all like to have some pizza before him though. As they're getting ready to put ice fin. In the water was small full in the ice. It's hoisted vertical in a stand and attached to other. Coordinates?

"And welcome back to coast to coast. We're back with Dr Peter pry, we will take calls with Dr prime next hour as we talk about protecting the power grid. Peter. Let's talk about the science behind the EMP's and the sun solar flares. The EMP, of course, electromagnetic pulse when a nation detonates a nuke in the atmosphere. What happens technically, okay? Well, the nuclear weapon, it's actually not detonated in the atmosphere. It's detonated above the atmosphere. Space has to be above an altitude of at least thirty kilometers and. It's not an people think of it as a nuclear attack, but the Russians and Chinese North Koreans neurons. They don't think of it as a nuclear attack. They think of it as a cyber attack or an electromagnetic attack because none of the normal the effects that we're usually associated with nuclear warfare heaven. If you're on the ground standing directly beneath the explosion happening, perhaps one hundred kilometers over your head up in space. You know, you wouldn't hear anything that there'd be no. That'd be no noise from the blast. No shock wave would reach the ground be radioactive fallout. The only thing that would be experienced on the surface of the earth, and by airplanes fly into the atmosphere would be electro magnetic pulse, which is like a super energetic radiowave traveling at the speed of light. And it's got so much energy in it that it will damage electron x across the area at at four hundred kilometer altitude all of North America, most of Canada and a big chunk of Mexico would have an EMP field from one weapon put down on them that would destroy electronics. Takedown power rich destroy communication systems. Cars start lanes would fall out of the sky would fall out of the sky nuclear reactors Fukushima, you'd have a natural gas pipeline explosions because the the skater systems in them the electric controls would spark caused natural gas pipelines explode all kinds of things that we depend upon for existence in our in our electronic civilization would fail and the and the biggest and most serious things would be no food and water.

There's only enough food to feed the whole population of the United States three hundred twenty six million people for thirty days, and that would start spoiling immediately because emergency generators might be destroyed. They're gonna run out. Emergency generating capacity and seventy two hours anyway, and that you know, when the temperature controls, no refrigeration, working food begins spoiling, Wyndham chaos. Pales. Yeah. In for example, after Hurricane Katrina when the power grid is down for a protracted period. All the food is is gone and to feed people you've got to bring it in from other states, and we're able to do that. When when when it's a limited a blackout like from hurricane. But when the whole continent is blacked out. That's not going to be a solution. Everybody is in the same boat when that happens, and that's why millions of people could die from starvation disease societal collapse and really our civilization could end. This is one of those existential threat is an overused word these days, but an existential threat threat dangerous if every existence of your civilization, there's very few things that are really existential an asteroid strike in North America an all out nuclear war, some kind of biological war. And and and we can't do much about a lot of those others. But the P there's no really reason for us to be people normal department of defense. For decades for decades has taken steps to protect critical equipment from electromagnetic pulses in that same technology can be applied to civilian infrastructures as the Russians and Chinese did during the Cold War and continue to do. So and in this particular case to the missile could be launched from a small ship. Couldn't it could be lofted from a meteorological balloons that can get up to thirty kilometers off the deck of his ship or a short range missile. You know, the North Koreans actually apparently experimented with during a crisis. The nuclear crisis following their thirty illegal nuclear test back twenty thirteen and they they had a freighter transit the Gulf of Mexico, and you know, it was right in our backyard. And we didn't know until it tried going back to North Korea through the Panama Canal that had to s a to nuclear capable missiles in the hidden under bags of sugar in the whole of the freighter. Now, it didn't have. Nuclear weapons on it. But, but this particular system is designed to take ten kilotonnes warhead, and yes, you could launch a missile system just like that off of a freighter and causing EMP. And we'd never know who did it, you know, because those missiles are very common, and and there's thousands of freighters in our territorial waters. You know, we don't have even good radar coverage facing south over the over the Caribbean. So you can you know up the bad guys could ex- execute a lethal attack against our civilization. We might never know who did it. You can't retaliate. Exactly. The North Koreans have got two satellites orbiting over us the campus three and cameras for that the commission has warned could be nuclear armed pricey MP attack. Now those satellites, you know are travelling at the four hundred kilometer altitude I described earlier the optimum altitude to put any field over all of North America. And the first things that among the first things to get. Streudel ballistic missile early warning radars. And other national technical means of intelligence, the we rely upon to who attacked us, you know, there's hundreds of satellites and low-earth orbit. And if they if they did that did a surprising on P attack by satellite. We might. We might not be able to figure out that it was the North Koreans. It could be we wouldn't necessarily know what was the satellite. It could have been a ballistic missile off off a freighter or something like that. And we would know wouldn't necessarily know what's the North Korean satellite. You know up racist possibility of false flag operations. Everybody knows the North Koreans have got those satellites up there. What if the Iranians decide, you know, to to launch a satellite that does the EMP attack hoping that we will blame the North Koreans. That's right. I mean such scenarios are entirely possible. Absolutely. And then of course, then there's the sun and the X flare solar flare which happened in the eighteen hundreds. It's called the Carrington event. We were fortunate the. Only really electronics. We had during that time period was the telegraph system, and that got fried didn't it. Yes, that's right. And the telegraph systems were basically all over the world at that time in eighteen fifty nine even the there was a transatlantic cable that had just been laid North America and Europe. But there were kept telegraph systems north and South America, India, China where with cloning powers were present. There was a telegraph system and all over the world. That was so powerful basically affected the entire world. And but because civilisation was not electron explanation yet except for the telegraph people didn't depend for their lives on the telegraph system. The thing that's so disturbing about that is telegraphed when you look at them. I've got one here in my office. And I'm looking at now in eighteen fifty nine telegraph key. And this thing is literally about a billion times harder. A billion times with the be harder against PF affects that are modern microelectronics which are much more sensitive much lower levels. And and telegraph keys like this that are billion times. Harder melted. All over telegraph stations. Caught on fires of the telegraph wires. Did some railroad lines cook to the the metal on the the the rails that happened in nineteen twenty one? There was another negative storm. Call. The railroad storm now up again, we we still weren't really electric civilization in one thousand nine hundred eighty one large scale electrification of the country. You know, there were some electric grits around. But but large scale electrification to the point where we were really dependent on. It didn't start happening until the Roosevelt administration in the nineteen thirties. And but the nineteen I believe it was nineteen twenty one railroad storm. Yeah. The the pulse coupled into the railroad tracks and destroyed all the electronic systems associated switching systems signal systems that were so shaded with railroad system in in in North America and took down the electric grits that were there at the time. Now that was that phenomenon was only percent as powerful as the only ineffective North America didn't affect the whole world. Ten percent is powerful as as the eighteen fifteen and Carrington event. But even if that happened not Carrington event, but even if that much. Solar storm happened today. Could end civilization in North America. If we had another such affect us, and we're one of the things the commission was most great about is this naturally MP because it's inevitable. You no one can debate about the North Koreans attackers. So the Chinese and Russians, and I do think that that's an extremely serious possibility exercise it all the time. They could get away with it. You really can't deter it at and we might not be able to tell you it against it. But the natural MP for the sun. I mean, that's a certainty. It will definitely happen. There's no avoiding it. It's just a natural phenomena. It can't be deterred NASA now estimate some. In fact, we were nearly hit by another Carrington class storm that would have affected whole world back in twenty twelve twenty fifth twenty twelve at the chrome Asha checks in the causes. This actually MP crossed the pass of the earth and missed us just by three days. And after that NASA estimated that the likelihood of recurrence of the Charrington class. Shoemaking medic superstorm is twelve percent per decade. And so that very guarantees that within our lifetimes, or at the latest that ever, grandchildren. You know, we're gonna see this phenomenon habit. To get ready for he'd been lucky so far. Yes, we have been lucky for we're all really overdue. You know, we estimated that these things happened once a century in eighteen fifty nine was much more than a century ago by now. So we've been living on borrowed time up to this point, Peter when we talk about protecting the grid technically, what are we talking about? Well, putting in search arresters and blocking devices and Verde cages, which are just basically like metal shorts. So it's all doable. Absolutely. I as an example. You know, the another form of the MP thinks it this way. You know, like a form of natural p to we call it e to the MP, and whatever we're talking about protection whenever you've talked about lightning anymore. That's because society already solved that problem almost everything's protected against like name, even your personal computer. If you if you look at the plug on your personal computer, you'll notice it's kind of fat. That's because there's a surgery restaurant there. That's right. If there's lightening strike on power line, it'll protect your personal computer. It basically breaks the circuit. For a brief moment to stop the lightning from damaging your personal, computer. I used to have a little horse farm years ago in Illinois and on the roof of the house and the barns. We had lightning rods connected with a wire into the ground. So in case lightning ever hit in you know, so wouldn't hit the house, but it would hit the it would hit the rod in power would go right down the wire and then ground right to the ground that was at that's right now. And that that lightning that that's what we call each William P the kind of lightning the kind of pulse that we're afraid of from nuclear weapon. It's called e one EMP, and the the pulse that we're afraid of the sun is called E three EMP and so two middle mid range frequency right between the two of them. And and for the sun to really do it. It has to be an ex flair of a pretty big magnitude. Right. Well to the to threaten any civilization. Yes. Because we do have Choo magnetic storms. Happen. All the time. Sure. You know every year, you know, there was one in nineteen eighty nine called hydro Quebec storm that blacked out half of Canada for ninety seconds, excuse me in ninety seconds. But it only lasted a day. Okay. It wasn't a civilization ender and countries high northern latitudes. And the state of Alaska. Finland Sweden Russia. You know, they get hit with these to make Nick schmaltz you make an extra compared to Carrington event. You know, they're absolutely station. Unders there troublesome, you know. And and they and those countries have usually already protected their grits against the naturally p to the extent of the of the of the kind of phenomenon that they're used to experiencing the most of them except for Russia are prepared for a big big one. You know, the the big, but to answer your original question is what do we do about this? That that solution. That's in the plug of your personal computer that deals with lightning. You know in effect. You're just scaling up that same technology. The surge. Arrester Espy more powerful, right. We've got the equipment. We've got the personnel to do this. Yeah. Yeah. That's that's right. And and how did we get our society protected against lightning? Well, you know, when it comes to designing equipment now, it's just written into the engineering and and books and regulations that, hey, when you build any kind of electronic system, you know, that that that's really important to could feel from lightning. It has to meet certain standards and certain criteria and industry doesn't even think about it. They just build the stuff to that standard. Well, that's what we've gotta do. We've just got to change the standard. So that e one e two and three are all covered and that'll solve the whole problem. And the estimate I heard from Bill forced to couple of years ago was about two billion dollars to fix this. And. Insulate the grid. Is that number still pretty constant? Yes. I that was you know, the commission estimate back in nineteen no excuse me yet. Two thousand eight back in two thousand eight you know, some years later, so, you know, cousin inflation, and like it might have gone up to three or four billion. But yeah. Two to four billion dollars would be enough to protect the electric grid and can the president do this as an executive order. Yes. I think the president can you know, he can direct all the departments and agencies to to protect themselves and those parts of the critical infrastructures that they oversee. So at the department of energy department of homeland security, for example, you know, could, you know, could Andy most importantly, the Federal Energy Regulatory commission, which saying we're going to have these new standards, we're going, and you guys are gonna have to protect the electric grid communication systems because we're so electric these days. Peter, I mean, everything is done this way. Go to a store. You can't go to an ATM. You can't do anything without electron IX anymore. That's right. And if the electron IX are manufactured, we know from from decades of experience in the department of defense that when you design the EMP hardness into a system, it's part of the design before you even.

"And welcome back to coast to coast. We're back with Dr Peter pry, we will take calls with Dr prime next hours. We talk about protecting the power grid. Peter. Let's talk about the science behind the EMP's and the sun solar flares. The EMP, of course, electromagnetic pulse when a nation detonates a nuke in the atmosphere. What happens technically? Okay. Well, the nuclear weapon is actually not detonated in the atmosphere. It's detonated above the atmosphere. Space has to be above an altitude of at least thirty kilometers and. It's not an people think of it as a nuclear attack, but the Russians and Chinese North Koreans Iranians, they don't think of it as a nuclear attack. They think of it as a cyber attack or an electromagnetic attack because none of the north the effects that we're usually associated with nuclear warfare happen. If you're on the ground standing directly beneath the explosion happening, perhaps a hundred kilometers over your head up in space. You know, you wouldn't hear anything there'd be no. That'd be no noise from the blast. No shock wave would reach the ground. There'd be no radioactive fallout. The only thing that would be experienced on the surface of the earth, and by airplanes fly into the atmosphere would be this electromagnetic pulse, which is like a super energetic radiowave traveling at the speed of light. And it's got so much energy in it that it will look damage electronics across the Utah area at at four hundred kilometer altitude all of North America, most of Canada and a big chunk of Mexico would have an EMP field from one weapon put down on them that would destroy electronics. Take down power grids destroy communication systems. Cars wouldn't start planes would fall out of the sky would fall out of the sky nuclear reactors Fukushima, you'd have a natural gas pipeline explosions because the the skater systems in them the electric controls would spark and caused natural gas pipelines explode all. Kinds of things that we depend upon for existence in our in our electronic civilization would fail and the and the biggest and most serious things would be no food and water. You know, it takes millions of volts to provide water to our cities, and and the grocery stores that we're used to buy food from omen having food in them for about two to three days at normal consumption rates there you supplied almost every day by these big regional food warehouses.

And it was interesting to hear her saying that she thinks it's about right railway because I always think whenever race courses are nine. And we've had this debate ourselves a lot on the second podcast Femina. There is a gut instinct and a an instinctive reaction among some quarters to compla- and immediately if the climbing in particular doesn't exactly mirror the man's Raya saying, and you know, we often hear from inside the Paladin that actually the women themselves think they need that. They don't need it to make it will. They don't need it to make it a good risk. But also that it could be detrimental to the same. And we had this question at the world. In this year if the woman's race had murdered the man's race. I just don't think as it was it was it was killed thirty kilometers to go. Anyway, would it have changed things if they hunt to wait on the final climb possibly, but we just don't have the strength and depth in women's Raya saying necessarily for the same kinds of routes that we've got an demands. And that doesn't mean that it's no good enough. Just means you've got to create a sport that caters four and showcases the best of on offer at the minute. I mean, I think with the puck who argument I think that the issue be the same type of rider that wins the women's race as wins the men's race. I think a lot of the time in in the women's races. The not quite so I always think about the tool Flanders we've had a few years. We've had so many people coming to the line at the same time. Diminished pack coming to the line etcetera. You never see that in the men's race. Because it is it's difficult enough that it's always kind of one person come to the line or two up sprint. So in that way.

"Or the sufficiency of the moisture that's there, and the dynamics that you're sort of implying from the structure of those bands. And so often some the largest no falls as you just described are associated with these nearly stationary bands of moderate to heavy. Tation that can dump a significant amount of snow, and I think the issue is where to those bands set up, right? And you don't really know that at least in my experience it's often until the just before the sedation about to start or once it started. How things eventually a land. It could be a difference of twenty five or fifty miles. That's the difference between dry ground and shovel snow. Yes. That's exactly right. Why don't we know? Those bands are set up say a couple of days in advance. What's what's the issue there? Well, part of it's the these bans are in some cases associated with dynamical processes like front. Genesis the formation of these intense thermal gradients and models have inherently have errors both in their initial conditions as well as in the models themselves. There's and as you project data Ford and time and a forecast model getting precisely where that band is going to set up. It's a challenge these models or resolving things maybe now down to the sub ten kilometer scale. But these vans are probably about thirty kilometers. And so you could be just a couple. Grid points off the all the difference. Yeah. And as Michael alluded to earlier, I think it's a to get a really heavy snow or lack thereof is a result of a confluence of a number of different circumstances. That are some I independent of each other. They're not entirely independent of each other semi independent of each other. And so the analogy I always have in my mind is if you want to really nail down the exact timing and well in advance and position of snow band and a heavy snow storm. It's like making a combination shot on the pool table balls. The cue ball hitting five different balls before the object ball and the chances of making that shot except for somebody like, Greg very low. Yeah. So so you're saying the tiny little differences that are within the scope of error at the initial time are going to lead to widely different outcomes. And so we just don't know which one's going to be the right one. That's I think that's right in America weather, predictions, inherently a non linear dynamical system problem. Not to get too geeky abounded geeky. Let's got the sense that you know, these in those. Context that the forecasts are very are very sensitive to the initial condition. So there's like difference initial conditions. Their state dependent right? There's not the they're not white noise. So to speak. So let's talk about some forecast.
