"Bringing people from very different areas together. That's what suffered the most. Yes so so much on like you do as you say. And even called the company's organiz their product line. so there's so many different factors so soclean to school working spaces. So i guess experiment here is about sort of startup ecosystem rate. Yes yes so what you find here here. The again the nice teacher was that the start ups were randomly assigned to their rooms. So it meant that. I didn't or we didn't have to. Because his co. on authored work We didn't have to deal with. Oh they chose to locate besides which is great to start off with and here what we find is that Startups learn from their neighbors. Only if these neighbors are very very close. I wanna say they're very close. I mean twenty meters. And if you are further down the paul then that you could you may as well be in a different floor and this is crazy to think about it. Because for thinking about all of these The research working on clusters in cities. And then we're moving into a co working place one floor and we find. It's only really between basically your neighbor That you're learning. That's that's pretty. Very very micro sophie. Think about that. And when i talk about learn from their neighbors the way we measured that was we were looking at technology adoption and so we used a website called built with That shows the tech stack of of upsets and we have exact time stamp so we could see when startup adopted a technology that the other start-up had already been using so. This is a great way. It's a different way of measuring its patents at It was a it's a. It's a unique in newer way of measuring learning from from others down in the state and so they have to be really cool together. You say i flicked work from physical synergy perspective.

"Okay so narrow. Marie we are neck section as in next episode known. How where what time are we at burley. Twenty minutes okay. Good okay good good. Good good good okay. It can arc never art. Okay okay. all right so marine. Kirby are stupidly burdened with sand and water hourglasses now guy and and cattle and crops and days seemed like they're getting shorter the nights are longer. Were freaking out. It's it's amendment out over right yes so okay. Now we're able to do some science though. Let's about finally it's about time okay. Let's say i want to measure physical event. Okay right so let's use the most. Let's use the most famous example of all time from science which is newton's falling to the ground. Okay all right. Yes if i wanted to understand how the apple falls right So i wanna know like well. How long does it take. Or how does the apple for like what's going on there understand that system. I need to have an understanding of time as well. Yes and so. I need essentially to start formulating mathematics or physical representations of these systems that i'm working in that include time in some way. Yes so for example. I know that if i throw in apple up into the air. Like if i throw an apple up the emory what happens to describe its flight paths to me so the apple goes up into the air and then it comes back down right so it. It goes up in the air shack really quickly. Then it seems to slow down Pause and stops at the top And then it starts to come down again. Yes if we were to measure the speed at the bottom the speed. I threw it up at the speed that it came down at those two speeds would be about the same but they would be an opposite direction so in other words i throw it up at twenty meters per second. Because i'm like a monster. Thriller falls down at twenty meters per second round right rougher equipment yes roughly the same time So it appears then that there is some. If i just measured the distance it fell. That isn't really enough information from right because it just goes up. It goes up a certain height and then it comes down right. If i include time though suddenly i can measure a lot of other interesting things. So for example. How quickly is the apple. Moving at any given time right which is what we call velocity. Yes so the apple goes up and as it goes up its velocity decreases it stops and then it starts to come down again k. So philosophy. Then i'm gonna define as how far something can travel in a given unit of time. Yes so it's like how much. How many meters seattle going per second right now something. Those seems to be happening. Whereas i threw the apple up.

It's equivalent to losing a deer in the woods or something like that like i. It's something you've either injured or hurt and didn't complete the process. So for sure julie he sorry said note now totally sad but also touching gears if i can. Oh my gosh i haven't. I've swam with sharks. I've experienced sharks in the water from a boat out here.

Is Old Faithful Becoming Less Faithful?
"Old faithful used to have a less than modest nickname attorneys timepiece. Since at least the late eighteen hundreds this wyoming cone geyser has vowed spectators with its predictable. Eruptions you can see the landmark for yourself in Yellowstone National Park home to over five hundred geysers more than one hundred and fifty of these water spurting marvels including old faithful occupy the parks upper geyser basin so named in eighteen seventy because it spouted at regular intervals. Old faithful gets more fanfare than any other geothermal attraction in the world visited by presidents and immortalized by artists. The guys are spouts about seventeen times a day. Countdown clocks tell gathering tourists when to ready their cameras for the next waterworks. Show is he. There's a simple formula. Rangers used to estimate. How much time will likely elapsed between any two eruptions of old faithful? According to the National Park Service about ninety percent of these eruption predictions are accurate within a window of plus or minus ten minutes. That's a solid track record but old faithfuls still isn't something you'd want to set your watch by. Five decades of observation have revealed that the geyser is changing since nineteen fifty-nine the average interval between old faithfuls eruptions has gotten longer and while most of the actual eruptions which occurred back. Then were rather brief. This is no longer the case we spoke by email with sin may woo a geologist at the University of Utah who studied the physics of geysers and related structures. She said geysers are rare because they require very unique geologic conditions a persistent heat source abundant water supply from groundwater systems and porous or fractured medium that allows fluid migration and he transfer within usually the heat comes from magma a liquid or semi liquid rock found below. Earth's crust which is called lava once it bursts onto the surface yellowstone is positioned over to magma chambers including a. Nice long one. That's just three ten miles underground. That's five seventeen kilometers. Their maker was a localized swell of abnormally hot material. Beneath the crest classified as a mantle plume. It's the reason why. Yellowstone has the world's largest geyser collection the chambers warm up subterranean reservoirs of liquid groundwater. Although the physics here aren't entirely settled. We do know that some of this water gets super heated. That means it's temperature climbs above and beyond waters normal boiling point since this water's held him. Tight corridors. It's got nowhere else to go at first bearing down on the superheated liquid is a combination of overhanging rock and colder water at cramped quarters to the mix. And you've got a recipe for high pressure but the pressure doesn't last forever in a geyser like old faithful hyperactive. Steam bubbles eventually pushes small percentage of the groundwater through a narrow opening at the surface. Just like that. The pressure decreases and sets off an explosion of hot water and steam. If you're wise you'll give old faithful a wide berth. Visitors can safely watch the geyser erupt from a boardwalk maintained by yellowstone venture off that path. And you might be on the hook for six months in prison and a five thousand dollar fine and besides getting too close to hydrothermal features. Like geysers or hot springs isn't a cool idea. When old faithful goes off the water temperature around its vent can hit two hundred and four degrees? Fahrenheit that's ninety six Celsius meanwhile the steam gets even hotter sometimes exceeding three hundred fifty degrees Fahrenheit or one hundred seventy seven Celsius viewed from an appropriate distance. Old Faithfuls eruptions are thrilling spectacles. Even if you've seen one before you might want to revisit the geyser some day because certain eruptions last longer than others. We'll explained that old. Faithful isn't as predictable as at once seemed there are two different categories of gaps between eruptions and of eruptions themselves an eruption that begins and ends in under two and a half minutes is considered short. Others are longer after a short eruption. There'll be an intermission of sixty to sixty five minutes before the Geyser spouts again yet old faithful will reliably take a break of around ninety two minutes once a long eruption subsides over the past fifty years longer eruptions at old faithful have become the norm short. One still occur but they are rarer than they used to be and no one is entirely sure. Why while the mystery is unresolved some geologists blame recent earthquakes for this changing schedule? The guys are source is another riddle. Scientists haven't determined where old faithful gets. Its water supply. Though in two thousand seventeen study Wu and five colleagues revealed an important clue using seismic waves sensors. They found a natural reservoir below the historic old faithful in which stands south. West of the Geyser who who said that body is interpreted to be a highly fractured and saturated area that we think provides fluids source to old faithful plumbing questions and by modal eruptions aside. Old Faithful is indeed more faithful. Then some of its counterparts. It's time we introduced the steamboat. Eiser another yellowstone resident. That happens to be the world's tallest. Active Geyser emitting jets of water three hundred to four hundred feet into the sky above. That's about ninety to one hundred and twenty meters but who said it is very unpredictable and has gone decades between eruptions the last eruption before March of two thousand eighteen was in September of two thousand fourteen. She added however that the two thousand eighteen blow up quote began an unprecedented active phase steamboat. Geyser has rented a total of eighty five times since then with the last eruption occurring February twenty first twenty twenty. We still don't know what initiates this active as what controls its eruptive behavior and what geometry looks like
8 Offbeat Questions About Cruise Ships Answered
"Gary Benbridge. This is another my tips travis. There are eight questions I hear people often ask on a cruise ship or ask me about cruising. They really are slightly unusual and a little bit on the side so I thought I would actually answer them right here right now starting with this. Is there a jail on board a cruise ship. Well actually there is. What's known known as a break? Now if this some issue normally passages will be restricted to their cabin but there is on most cruise ships a brig this is normally a pretty secure cure room normally in your security where they can hold up rowdy passages or in fact I guess crew until they get to the next port and can hand them over to authorities artis if something serious has happened now in reality one of the big challenges on board cruise ships is crime. And how much crime exists onboard a cruise. The statistics would suggest crime rates are not particularly high. However it's quite difficult to understand because there's no requirement and no sort of central registry because of the way that cruises run where they're registered however one of the ways of looking at crime is there are eight serious crimes which cruise companies have to report? If they're either embarking or disembarking in the United States of those eight series crimes three of them are the most reported that salts sexual assaults and theft thefts of large amounts of property high value property. However it's not really known how much petty crime exists on board a cruise ship? There are no police police on board and security will deal with most issues so the things you tend to hear about are the more serious things saying that in terms of the amount of crime crime per thousand or hundreds of thousands of passengers. It's really low on a cruise so when a crime does happen on cruise ship it get a lot of publicity but it is kind of hard to get the stats but if you do for foul and you do commit a crime or cause a disturbance there is brick on board which you will be thrown into the second question that I get asked a lot and here is how many people die on a cruise every year. Well actually the number surprise me. Small around about two hundred deaths are recorded on cruise ships bear in mind something like twenty one. Twenty two million people crews on cruise ships every year. It's a pretty small a number. Most of those deaths are related to age the dying of old age onboard cruise things to look out for on a cruise. If you hear over the Tannoy a system of the loudspeakers Operation Bright Star that means as a medical issue on board some sort of medical emergency on board and if you actually hear Operation Rising Star Star that means that has been a death on board of course the cruise lines not normally like to publicize it if it happens because it's normally happens kind of creepy and a cabin or whatever. So what do they do with the bodies. Well actually cruise ships do have a morgue and have to carry body bags normally body. We put in a body bag. It'll be stored in the mock walk now. What happens there buddy depends a little bit on the port? Some ports will want the body to be disembarked. I guess sometimes the family disembark on other cases the body he will stay on board until the ship gets back to port. It often started in because that just makes it much easier for the cruise line and often for the family to deal with the third question is is it a ship or is it a boat a lot of people on cruises go crazy when people call a cruise ship a cruise boat. So what is the right terminology terminology. Well in the whole military and all the maritime world's one of the rules that people use is you can put a boat on a ship the competition on a boat if you look at cruise ships they actually have boats on them. They have life on them so that does make them so. It's kind of informal thing. Another point of view is is anything over. Twenty meters of sixty feet is considered a ship so actually for example and river cruising longtime. They were called river boats because because they were shorter than sixty feet long however the general view is that anything's over that size is ships as in the military world. Anything of that size is I liked to be called a ship in practice. There's no right or wrong. However people who are into cruising will tend to call it a ship and and not about you'll even find some crews captains please so strong and so I've been on cruises for example on celebrity cruises where Captain Kate is is renowned for a badge that she wears which says it's a ship not about the next question I hear lot and it's actually one thing I wondered about for a long time is? Why is the safety drill called a muster drill? It's quite hard to find out the reason for that but it seems to be. It's always been called that and it's comes from the word muster muster which means to gather and it's stuck. It's become one of those terms for the safety drill very important. Of course the safety drill has to be done within. Twenty four hours was of passengers embarking. Since Costa Concordia that's become even stricter and now cruise lines do that. Before the ship actually sets sail the fifth question and is. If you've ever looked at daily program you'll see a couple of people have lots of Friends of bill and Dorothy. For example. Have lots of friends so the question you could ask is. Why on Earth do bill? W dorothy and Jimmy have so many friends that they actually have a meet up or friends of Bill. W you was the one that really kicked it all off and it's because cruise lines originally didn't want to say that they were hosting alcoholics. Anonymous Meetings Built W. refers to William or bill w Wilson who was one of the CO founders of the A. Dorothy was the codename way back when for the LGBTQ jibbed community you'll find nowadays that very few cruise lines talk about friends of Dorothy meetings and they will just call them. LGBT MEET UPS nowadays. It's the Dorothy slang word has kind of disappeared people dischord LGBT. The other one that you may see although it's much less common is friends of Jimmy and friends of Jimmy. Que refers to the or narcotics anonymous which was founded by James Kenan most cruise lines though will tend to direct people looking for an NA meeting friends of Jimmy K to the Friends of Bill W meeting. So that's why Bill Jimmy and Dorothy have so many friends. Yes and meet UPS aboard the ship and other question that I hear a lot is is it saltwater. In the toilets of course no one's going to get close enough enough to actually find out and test for themselves. Well actually originally. It was saltwater in the toilets that's before desalination plants became really really expensive and were just just prohibitive so salt water was actually used both in the showers and also in the toilets that created a lot of problems because caused rust and all sorts of problems within the actual equipment. But it was originally saltwater. Today it's not salt water. The next question is where does all this clean pure non-salted water come from. There's actually three places that it can come from on a cruise ship. The first and the most traditional is what's known as bunkering bunkering is maritime term for loading loading water on board a ship and of course if what is bunkered on a cruise ship. It's tested on both. Make sure it's all safe to drink. However nowadays cruise ships will tend to make their own water and two ways of doing that the first of the processes that cruise ships use themselves on board is known as steam? Evaporation so this is where the cruise ship uses uses the heat. The huge amount of heat that's generated by the engines. They take salt water. The heated up it evaporates the water evaporates all assaults and stuff is left behind. They then turn the steam back into water through condensation and they have water that they can entreat and make ready the other process S.. which is the most common process is known as reverse osmosis? So what happens here is was taken on board. And it's basically pushed through the microscopic screen which then keeps all the salts in the stuff like that behind and any of the fresh clean water go through because the water is then treated and make sure that it's safe to drink and consume and soon so this is the key ways that the ship gets water that people drink and use on board so water is perfectly safe drinking. It's processed and treated extremely Tarini thoroughly before it's sent through the ship for consumption and use. The next question is around waist now clearly on ships of several thousand people well an enormous amount of waste is going to be generated by human waste and rubbish. Waste so what actually happens to all of that waste. Let's talk first of all about surge. Judge Binds National Law. Oceangoing vessels are actually able to put surge in the once that twelve miles out from from land and they're going to certain speed however cruise ships are however not allowed to do it so all cruise lines which part of clear the Cruise Line Association abide right by policy which says that no untreated surge will be put it into the sea anywhere in the world at any time. So what happens. Well it's treated on board. First of all they take blackwater which is basically the human waste and take gray waters. That's water that's come out of things like the kitchens or the basis or the showers. Those two would is is all combined in certain ratios there then treated by nearly sort of bacterial treatment which purifies it then goes through another process they use UV to really treat the water rather than chlorine or chemicals because ultimately the water wants treated and is back to being completely it'd be safe and free of impurities is released normally back into the ocean when it comes to food waste all the food waste is collected and it goes through. These grinders turned turn basically into a runny mixture which then is normally also able to then be released into the sea sometimes of course it is then pumped in on land when it comes to other waste raced this whole process. What's important to know is crucial to have an environmental office on board charge of all of these various operations? So when it comes to waste your cabinet shoot for example. We'll sort through all of your waist and sorted into plastics to metals into paper. All of the glass is collected on board. It's sorted by color it's ground down and then disembarked because it sold off as waste can be recycled on land papers sorted out it's all bundled up and again that's handed of And sold for recycling and the same is done separately for Kabul and of course for things like metal cans all crushed down so there's a huge pick operation. One things. I would encourage you to do if you have a cruise ship that offers a full behind the scene to now you'll have to pay for these but it will take you right and down as the deck of the ship and you get to meet the environmental officer and you get to see the whole processing plot and it's really interesting to see how they take the waste both human wastes and the gray ray water and paper and glass and cans and it's really good to see firsthand how it's actually dealt with so this whole big recycling operation that takes WCHS place onboard cruise

"WanNa talk about they. nerdy engineer born in Oklahoma whose middle name is guth. Oh goose I mean that's that's an excellent nerd middle name okay so I'm GonNa talk about Karl Guth Jansky who was born in Norman Oklahoma in nineteen o five one of six children in his family and Jetskis. Dad's zero was an electrical engineering professor and so little Karl Jansky when he grew up he followed in his father's trajectory to study physics engineering as well also as a young man Karl. Jansky earned a degree in physics from the University of Wisconsin. It got his undergraduate degree but then failed to complete his masters but then anyway he went went on to get hired by a company was hired for a position as a radio engineer with Bell Telephone Laboratories in nineteen twenty eight and this would have been when radio engineering was something fairly new so at this time in the late nineteen twenty s bell labs was interested in creating a system for a wireless radio based telephone service that would allow transatlantic phone calls. Let's just say you needed to call across the Atlantic Ocean to order a begetter something these radio based phone calls that bell labs wanted to do would have been in the shortwave frequency range meaning wavelengths of about ten to twenty meters and Jansky was given the job job of hunting down any potential sources of radio interference that would cause static on the calls so Jansky built a giant receiver antenna China to detect signals at a wavelength of fourteen point five meters and this was a directional antenna and that meant that it could be moved around to identify identify the origin vector of any particular signal right so it's not receiving signals from every direction the same you aim it in the direction that you want to pick pick up the signal from and it was mounted on a giant rotating platform outfitted with motorized wheels. Actually they were the wheels from a Model T. and it could be aimed in any direction to root out the sources of static or other interference that they were looking for. Some people called this jetskis. Mary go round. I've got a photo of a here for you Robert Yeah at first glance. It looks not unlike a giant biplane of some kind you know. Oh yeah with the stress on the wings and it looks like the world's most dangerous gymnastics equipment broken shins all around yeah it looks a little bit like scaffolding or the the system of goals and some sort sort of Sushi in sport but in the middle of course it's got wheels and it's got a little track that the wheels roll around on so that you can aim it to to calibrate where the the source of the interference is coming from so first of all he discovered the main source of terrestrial interference on this radio frequency

"To get started so starship these are prototypes right now. Starship is in a prototype phase so they're still kind of building it out and working out a bunch of engineering technical details but if this goes well of star hopper can prove itself itself that it can actually do these hover tests while the first test for starship. We'll probably be something along the same lines as star hopperton right so it'll it'll do a tether test probably then it'll do a small flight test of little hover test about twenty meters senate will go up to six hundred fifty feet. Maybe somewhere along those lines. We don't really have plans figured out yet for this. We're not i'm not sure exactly what's going to be happening with these tests but after it's going after it does all these initial tests. It'll be flying into space. Starship is amazing because when it gets up into space it'll be able to land just like a falcon rocket rocket. Now it'll come back down to earth. It'll hover back down to earth it will propose itself back to the landing pad in land vertically where it will be refurbished a little bit checked out and that'll be able to launch again and this is important because it's spacex wants to launch a lot of starling satellites in the coming years stokes. Oh starship is successful it launches properly while that will allow spacex to launch a ton of these starling satellites along with of course you you know moon missions mars missions that stuff so coming up on friday we will have the next in most ambitious launch of star hopper now.

are tired of the country Sandinista movement despite its forty years as the home of national resistance but first to Somalia and the death of yet another talented leader the country could ill afford to lose when the news came in of yet another attack in Mogadishu on the twenty fourth of July it was hardly unexpected the also Bob movement has consistently targeted shot bombed and killed people who might consider to close to foreign governments or not devoted enough to Islam it's killed members of the security forces civilians and school pupils throughout Somalia and beyond in Kenya but the attack on the twenty fourth of July it was targeted to calls particular terror and particular despair because it was aimed at the office of the capital's mayor Andrew Harding knew him well and remembers just how much he'd achieved in a lifetime of struggle it was later afternoon in Mogadishu a few years back the bleary eyed man in a disheveled uniform was blocking my way and brandishing a good night it seems an odd choice of weapon but that was hardly the point I reached slowly from my phone and called a friend for help I knew engineer your wrist so we don says he always did and I knew he would sort things out that was his specialities at the time engineer Yuri so with some obvious presidential spokesman but over the years he held many important posts government advise a cabinet

at a long table talking into a fresh lobster enjoying the view a hopeful smile on his face Andrew Harding in recent weeks there's been a surge of violence in the civil war still tearing away at the fabric of Syria and particularly at the country's north west and the province of Idlib this is a part of the Middle East that scene millennia of human history and been witness to many in order credit regime to countless bloody conflicts and innumerable fighting forces and since the protests broke out in the spring of twenty eleven it's always been a center of resistance to the regime of Bashar al Assad my twenty seventeen as president Assad's military drove rebel groups out of one urban center after another elsewhere in Syria it lives had become the last major bowl told for his opponents but as Jeremy Bowen explains that may not be true for much longer in a country with more ancient monuments and delays of history than most the province of Idlib used to be a very interesting place to visit in twenty ten the year before the war started in Syria we stopped in it live during a journey from Damascus to Aleppo a day long drive from the capital to a city that had been a great trading post for millennia across roads on the Silk Road that connected Asia and Europe we didn't break the journey and it live city or in the villages that this weekend being hammered by the shells and bombs

abandoned over one thousand years ago then known as the dead cities and one of them the Saint Simeon Stylites he's lived on a stone column for nearly forty years UNESCO has designated the dead cities as a world heritage site in danger in twenty sixteen reports said said simians column had been damaged in a Russian Astruc eight or so years of fighting have ebbed and flowed through it live province and now it's likely to be the site of the Syrian wars lost big blessing of blood the density is another place to visit anymore not if you want to stay alive no one really knows why they were abandoned but in this sorry century there are no doubts about what's happening in its lead since the regime and its Russian allies launched an offensive against the province three months ago four hundred and

I'm Lauren Vogel bomb back on January twenty fourth two thousand four Nasr's opportunity Rover descend into the Martian surface and survived its bouncy landing to the relief of scientists anxiously monitoring the space probe back at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, the four hundred million dollar Rover. One of a pair that NASA landed upon the red planet that year was designed to last for just a few months on the rough dusty terrain of the Martian surface. Instead to the establishment of researchers at lasted for nearly fifteen years in earth time, the longest time that any robot from earth has operated on another planet until it finally stopped communicating with earth after a severe Martian dust storm in June of two thousand eighteen after unsuccessful attempts to restore contact. Nasa. Officials on February thirteenth finally gave up and declared that -tunities mission was over the exact cause of the probes demise is unclear it could be that solar panels went dead under a chokingly thick layer of Martian dust, or that it's tonics failed due to the extremes of Marsh. Other opportunity had outlived its robotic twin these spirit Rover by nearly eight years it's final resting place is the aptly named perseverance valley during its astonishing lifespan this Gulf cart sized planetary probe weighing three hundred eighty four pounds. That's one hundred seventy four kilograms in earth, gravity managed to cover twenty eight miles or forty five kilometers. That's forty four times the distance scientists who designed it to cover it said a single day. Marsh driving record of seven hundred twenty one feet that's two hundred and twenty meters back in two thousand five during its travels. It accomplished plenty of other amazing feats here are a few. It took a whole lot of pictures. The opportunity snapped two hundred seventeen thousand images of the Martian surface, including fifteen three hundred sixty degree. Panoramas? Those images were more than just pretty pictures. Images from its panoramic camera equipped with thirteen different color filters gave scientists the opportunity to enhance the wavelengths and study changes in the features of Martian rock formation. Nhs it discovered. The Martian blueberries just a few months after arriving on Mars, the probe discovered tiny globules rich inhabitants, which scientists dubbed blueberries because of their shape and color. These blueberries provided evidence that ancient Mars had a watery environment and opportunity found more signs of ancient water and possibly ancient life on Mars at the endeavour crater opportunity found clay minerals that were formed in flowing neutral ph water in the distant past this discovery raises. The possibility that the environment around the crater may have been able to support microbial life millions of years ago. It also studied a whole lot of Martian rocks. Samples opportunities tools exposed the surfaces of fifty two. Martian rocks to reveal fresh mineral surfaces for analysis and cleared seventy two more rocks with a brush so that their surfaces could be investigated by its instruments. Also, it was one heck of a climber opportunity proved to be remarkably nimble robot scaling gravel slopes as steep as thirty. Two degrees. An off earth record with disability explored a whole lot of craters in the course of its travels opportunity studied more than one hundred impact craters of various sizes and gathered insights about how craters form and erode over time. And it learned a lot about the Martian environment opportunity studied, Martian, clouds and the Apache the Martian atmosphere, including how it affects solar panels on space probes. That information may help scientists to design even more rugged resilient Rovers in the future the Rover's instruments. Also tracked changes in Martian clouds as they accumulated, providing scientists with the opportunity to study Martian weather in the end NASA.

Neandertal Spears Were Surprisingly Deadly
"This is science Americans sixty seconds science. I'm Christopher Dodd Yata time three hundred thousand years ago the scene a herd of horses struggling in mud a short five meters away, a group of early Nando tall hunters throwing volley of wooden spears towards the animals, and then probably coming into an injured horse, and then perhaps finishing it off with thrusting spear on Emeka milks a paleolithic archaeologist at University College London. But there's something not quite right about that classic scene. She says specifically the Neanderthals spears may have been more sophisticated and more lethal than we've given them credit for which would alter that. Ancient Tableau, we believe that Neanderthals could have thrown them from farther away that that would have allowed them to approach animals that maybe weren't disadvantaged, and they wouldn't have necessarily needed to come right up close to the animal to kill it off. With thrust. Some of these. Shots with throwing spare could be lethal to animal like that. If they hit in the right way this revised assessment of Neanderthal weaponry began with the crafting of spruce timber into replicas of an actual three hundred thousand year old spear. The surface was finished with the same kinds of stone tools used to make the original milks, then recruited six male javelin throwers to Chuck the replica at a hay bale at five meters. They struck the target more than half the time at ten to fifteen meters. A quarter of the time, but from twenty meters just one in six throws hit the hey, I mean, it's still not amazing. Accuracy. I have to say I was hoping for better though, she points out that the javelin throwers aren't trained to hit targets. Something Neanderthals may have been more skilled at and the experiments suggest the weapons were at least capable of sailing much farther than had been thought and high speed video of the throws proved the spears could strike with deadly force. The research is in the journal scientific reports the crafting of these ancient spears also suggest. Just some degree of intelligence, a concept of or intuition about balance mass and design, for example, whoever crafted these ancient spears use the denser, lower part of the tree trunk for the spirit tips intended to strike prey, but we still don't know which Neanderthals use this beers in battle. I want to emphasize that we chose male athletes rather than female athletes. Not because we don't think that women were playing a role in hunting. But because we needed a homogenous sample, but I'd be very curious to know how women did in terms of accuracy, perhaps another round of tests with women throwers can address that. Thanks for listening for scientific American sixty seconds science. I'm Christopher dot.
"Thirty seven meters. Thirty meters twenty meters seventeen meter standing by for touchdown.

No, it's thrilling thrilling the landing did the insight which was carrying instruments that will help scientists to study the surface of Mars, and it's an habitants and learn whatever it can about the planet occupied or not this is able to prove it's not occupies. This is all very inspiring stuff. But our interest in space missions here. The indicator is not actually about the science as always it's about the economics. I'm Garcia, and I'm Stacey Vanik Smith and technically Cardiff economics is a science science issue. It's a social science. I think they. This is the indicator from planet money today and tomorrow on the show, we're going to take a look at the economic history of the US space program with a space economist. Yes, there is such a thing as a space economists. There's kind of thing. We'll tell you why the incites mission to Mars is actually a throwback to the way NASA used to do things.

Learn more at concur dot com slash NPR. Matt Weinzierl is our space economist, well sort of he teaches at the Harvard Business School. He's an economist, and he has a really passionate interest in space. Matt knows that most people have a fascination with space because of like the grand themes exploration. The search for aliens going to the moon so planets AB someday living on Mars with its other inhabitants. Exactly, not Matt. He got excited about space for a different reason is the over the last decade, really almost two decades. Now, we've seen a real flourishing of a commercial space sector. See back in the Cold War decades, the sixties seventies and eighties. When the US was researching the Soviet Union to the moon and developing the space shuttle, Matt says the US space program was meant to provide Americans with so-called public goods. And this is a really important concept in economics public goods are defined by two things first when someone uses a public good it does not. Prevent another person from being able to use it and second when a person uses a public good. It also doesn't take away from how much someone else can use it. So a computer is not a public good. No, not at all. Because I'm using it. And you. One example of public good is clean air. My breathing. It does not stop Stacey. From also, breathing it or military protection. Just because I'm protected by the US military doesn't mean that Stacey is not protected. Matt gives three examples of the public goods that NASA originally was meant to provide the first one national security being able to defend ourselves from space or do something else space was critical importance to national security the second scientific discoveries. So too early. It's hard for the private sector, which is motivated by profit to do basic research in things that won't obviously be sellable. The third public good something you just really can't put a price tag on national pride. Don't usually talk about as much. But I think if you think back to the Cold War that was clearly a big part of it that we wanted to show that our model. Our our society was was the better choice for other societies to take and as the name suggests public goods tend to be publicly provided or. Vied by the government using taxpayer money because there isn't always an obvious motivation for the private sector to provide these public goods, there just isn't an immediate way to profit from them. And yet these goods are valuable to society. So the government uses its unique ability to direct massive amounts of money into providing those goods, it's a centralized economic model. The government agency in this case NASA decides what to do, and it has no competition for how best to do it and using this model. Matt says NASA has really accomplished amazing things over the years, think of the moon missions. And yes, the Mars landings like the one this week and also helping to build the international space station, which is a research laboratory the size of a football field that orbits the earth. And finally, of course, there was the space shuttle program, which was designed to transport people and stuff into space. But Matt says by the early years of this century NASA was struggling to define what its next mission should be NASA hasn't put a man on the moon. Since nineteen seventy two and the space shuttle program, experienced two tragedies, I when the challenger space shuttle exploded in one thousand nine hundred six and second when the Columbia space shuttle disintegrated in two thousand and three and that says it was a lot more expensive per space shuttle flight than people hoped and it got into space a lot less often in two thousand four the administration of President George W Bush announced that it was canceling the space shuttle program and this left NASA with a problem. How is it going to send cargo and cruise into space to do things? Like, for instance, supply, the international space station without space shuttle program NASA came up with two strategies one was a conventional big government centralized program, which would last many years and cost many billions of dollars and then on the margins. There was this idea to spend a little bit of money to encourage a more decentralised, private sector driven space economy. But basically it turned. Out that that conventional program went over budget and behind schedule and eventually got cancelled. But that little experimental program that involved NASA, partnering with the private sector that worked out. This programme was known as cots c o t s and that is an acronym. For commercial orbital transportation services. Nasa issued a report last year saying that the cots program had been this huge success and a model for the public sector to partner with the private sector. And since then NASA has launched no pun intended, is maybe slightly intended other partnership programs that are just like it. Yeah. And the basic way these programs work is that when NASA needs something NASA tells private companies how much it might be willing to pay for it. And then those private companies get to work on figuring out how to provide it for example, last decade when NASA wanted a better way to send supplies to the international space station, and in fact to private companies orbital sciences and SpaceX convinced NASA that they could use their shuttles to resupply. The. Space station. So NASA paid them combined three point five billion dollars for a total of twenty resupply. Flights to the space station. And there are plenty more examples. Like right now NASA is asking private companies to propose technologies they can build and which NASA will pay for that will be useful for future moon missions. We're going back. Yeah. Matt says that NASA is more of a partner with such private companies than a supervisor NASA sets the goal, but private companies compete with each other to come up with the best way to meet that goal and the private companies, then get to keep most of the innovations that they come up with and which they can use to develop new products that they can sell in the private sector or which they can sell to organizations other than NASA. From an economic standpoint this newer, decentralized model has a lot of benefits there's competition between companies which tends to make products better. There's also a profit motive for those companies and incentive for them to discover new technologies and NASA gets access to these new technol-. Gies for a lot less money than it would have cost to develop them. Plus this model is laying the groundwork. Or Stacey laying the space work. Very nice. Very nice, not very nice for the future. When a lot of activity in space will be driven mostly by the private sector. In other words, these partnerships between NASA and the private sector are creating new marketplace for space technologies. We're one did not previously exist and private companies right now are coming up with technologies that will have actual value that could be bought and sold for actual money in this possible future. So what are these new exciting activities going to be and what weird new economic challenges might these activities themselves create Matt tells us about them on tomorrow's episode to tune in. I'm excited to hear more about the martians. Hey, it's catch out with the code. Switch team few years ago. I adopted this queue, but also shy eagle next from a dog rescue. But I noticed really fast he mostly barked at my friends of color made me wonder is my dog racist. So I went to find out check it out on the next code. Switch podcast.
