Now that decision not to prosecute a came after the commerce department's own inspector general found at loss had lied to congress about a citizenship question that he wanted to add to the twenty twenty cents. We have an important update to that story. The government executive have both issued corrections. Clarifying that in fact it was the trump justice department that made the decision not to prosecute.

"Not be a good show when it comes. Yes that's a great question and it's it's all about the kind of scales that we're talking about because yes. The universe is expanding. But it's only when you start looking over significant distances that you can see the effective that and those distances are generally further than the distance between galaxies in groups and where the group part of something called a local group which is about twenty galaxies. Three bright ones one is milky way. One is there in germany galaxy and there is another one called the triangular galaxy which is a little bit smaller but a little bit further away than andromeda and does to ask million light years away and he's on collision course is under just said with our own milky way but those distances two and a half million lightyears is local. It's actually very very close by and so the force of gravity between the milky way galaxy and the drama. The galaxy is much greater than you would need to sort of compensate for the expansion of the universe so the expansion of the university's going on everywhere all the time but on a local scale. Gravity is by far the the more dominant effect and that local scale extends not just to a few million light years but probably not hundreds of millions of lightyears because for example the nearest big galaxy cluster is the virgo cluster huge cluster of thousand galaxies in the constellation virgo. It's about fifty light fifty million light years away and we are being drawn towards that as well but actually it's quite interesting because we are being drawn towards it. But that's kind of on the limit because the university's expansion is pulling away from it and this question which is going to win and in fact i think eventually eventually the expansion will probably win on that on that one. But that's the bottom line. It depends on distance when you looking billions of light years away. Then the dominant effect is the expansion of the universe not how we can measure the distances because we know how fast the expansion is going so a great question so it's yeah it is so gravity versus expansion and in terms of distance. Gravity's winning in our area yet but ultimately the expansion will take either. Yeah that's right. In fact it probably will never the look group in which we are embedded. This local group of galaxies will always remain intact. Probably splutter around it but the other galaxies the virgo cluster. Eventually the expansion will take it beyond a horizon that we can't see anymore because it will lead. The speed of light will be basically the expansion. That's taking place. Oh yeah it's with talking about ten twenty thirty billion sorry more like hundred billion years in the future that we won't see other galaxies etc. Once in our own little system fits up. We'd will the sky look when that happened very weird if there is and the second question was about observing the milky way. I suppose for people like me who live in a region which doesn't have as much light pollution as some parts of the world. It's a bit easier. But i guess he's talking about his geographic location in terms of being able to it. That's not the you know the is. Is it possible to see the milky way from being and the answer is yes. You can see the milky way pretty well from anywhere in the world because it stretches all the way around the sky and it's definitely brightest in the southern hemisphere because that's where the center of our galaxy is and it's unfortunate because it means that the fence is part of the milky way is in the.

"Last. Ten years of service journey hits a gas cloud. And so you get this twinkling. It comes about because of the turbulence of gas in the milky way. That's what causes twinkling in the atmosphere twinkling of starlight turbulence of this case it's the atmospheric gas but you get the same phenomenon with the light from these distant quasars and so what they've been able to do these astronomers observed. I think it's a huge number. Yes thirty thirty thousand of these distant galaxies they examined and six of them a very big percentage were twinkling strongly. That tells you that they're going through a clump of cats it. What's really interesting. Is that this clump of gas. Seems to be a long string of gas because they the twinkling galaxies ones. That said yes. We're going through a clump of gas here. There in a straight line there long straight line across the sky which in itself i think. He's quite intriguing and essentially tells you that this cloud of gas as Probably long thin. So what they say case. This is from their conversational. Tickle in fact which is you can quote these directly. The cloud of gas we detected was inside the milky way about ten light years away from earth that means that from like from those twinkling galaxies traveled billions of light years towards earth. Only to be disrupted by the cloud during the last ten years of journey which is trying to say less eloquently a minute ago so and this is a crucial thing under by observing the sky positions of not just the five twinkling galaxies but also tens of thousands of non twinkling ones. We were able to draw a boundary around the gas cloud and we found it was very straight. The same length is four moons substitute agrees side by side. But only to when it's a width is a sixty degree. They've said so thin. It's the equivalent of looking at a strand of hair held at arms length. That's not something i often do. is you know. But that's how it is thought becoming less capable that to say. This is the first time. Astronomers have been able to calculate the geometry and physical properties of gas cloud in this way. But where did he come from. And what gave it such an unusual shape so that then leads them to speculate. What the form of this gas cloud is and they wonder if it's something that they call a hydrogen snow cloud something that is basically frozen hydrogen. And we've we've talked about this before andrew because that was one of the theories for whatever moore might be a solid lump of nitrogen that had come from the inside of a giant cloud. So they're saying you know. Perhaps there are snow clouds that make up some of the missing matter of the milky way. And maybe that's what these astronomers have detected with twinkling galaxies and. I should mention by the way that this all comes. Courtesy of this trillion square kilometer array pathfinder telescope. Ask cap in western australia. That's the instrument that was used to make these observations. It's one that are visited..

That's what causes twinkling in the atmosphere twinkling of starlight turbulence of this case it's the atmospheric gas but you get the same phenomenon with the light from these distant quasars and so what they've been able to do these astronomers observed. I think it's a huge number. Yes thirty thirty thousand of these distant galaxies they examined and six of them a very big percentage were twinkling strongly. Say that tells you that. They're going through a clump of cats it. What's really interesting. is that this clump of gas. Seems to be a long string of gas because they the twinkling galaxies. The ones that said. Yes we're going through a clump of gas here there in a straight line there long straight line across the sky which in itself. i think. He's quite intriguing and essentially tells you that this cloud of gas as Probably long thin. So what they say case. This is from their conversational. Tickle in fact which is you can quote these directly. The cloud of gas we detected was inside the milky way about ten light years away from earth that means that from like from those twinkling galaxies traveled billions of light years towards earth. Only to be disrupted by the cloud during the last ten years of journey which is trying to say less eloquently and it ago so and this is a crucial thing under by observing the sky positions of not just the five twinkling galaxies but also tens of thousands of non twinkling ones. We were able to draw a boundary around the gas cloud and we found it was very straight. The same length is four moons substitute agrees side by side. But only to when it's a width is a sixty degree. They've said so thin. It's the equivalent of looking at a strand of hair held at arms length. That's not something i often do. is you know. But that's how it is thought becoming less capable that to say. This is the first time. Astronomers have been able to calculate the geometry and physical properties of gas cloud in this way. But where did he come from. And what gave it such an unusual shape so that then leads them to speculate. What the form of this gas cloud is and they wonder if it's something that they call a hydrogen snow cloud something that is basically frozen hydrogen. And we've we've talked about this before andrew because that was one of the theories for whatever moore might be a solid lump of nitrogen that had come from the inside of a giant cloud. So they're saying you know. Perhaps there are snow clouds that make up some of the missing matter of the milky way. And maybe that's what these astronomers have detected with twinkling galaxies and. I should mention by the way that this all comes. Courtesy of this trillion square kilometer array pathfinder telescope. Ask cap in western australia. That's the instrument that was used to make these observations. It's one that are visited..

"Expand more twenty percent to master and five percent to normal matter so normal matches a tiny fraction. It's actually more like four percent. Probably of what makes up the universe and we know we should to see it because that's normal matter it's in fact it's hydrogen. Basically and hydrogen has the property that is detectable glowing in stars or or nebulae. All when it's cold. Who which is what we pick up with radio telescopes. But when you pull that we can see. There isn't enough. And there was a big breakthrough last year which came from fast radio bursts as they pass through intergalactic space. They interact with the radiation interacts with the electrons in that space and the turns out that a lot of that missing matter. The missing normal matter is locked up between the galaxies because they found a lot without experiment last year however we still short apparently and once again the radio strongly world come to our assistance with a lovely story that actually comes from the university of sydney in here in australia to our murphy and one. Ming wang i think is the name. Her name is pronounced two young women. Astronomers are not quite well. I've worked with in the past on giving talks and things they have produced some really infamous interesting information. That comes about in a fascinating way. I think and it's all about twinkling we. We're all used to the idea of stars. Twinkling as their light passes through the atmosphere in fact a twinkling is something that astronomers don't like because it essentially destroys the quality of the images. And that's why big telescopes tend to look high in the sky rather than low down on the horizon. Unless you have to because the low you get on the horizon more atmosphere and going through all stars twinkle now. The atmosphere itself doesn't affect radio observations in that. You don't get any twinkling. But if you've got gas at a distance from our solar system and you're looking through that gas then you might well get the twinkling phenomenon. And it's got a fancy name. It's called installation. So simulation is what you're looking for in the observations of distant actually in this case. They're looking at distant quasars which are actively point sources in the sky very compact radio sources the nuclei of galaxies that have a supermassive black hole in them. That's feeding frantically on its earth on its surroundings and their extinct today the only in the early universe. oh the earlier universe. So they're using these these quasars as back ulama nation in other words that they're looking at the light of the quasars to see what happens to it when it gets ninety nine point nine nine percent within ninety nine within the within point zero zero one percent of the end of its journey. If i can put it that way in other words when it's made when this light of this radio radiation has done it staff. She's gone through billions of years worth of travel and it gets to our galaxy where you're talking about..

"Exactly the taboo. The talk early. Enjoy it so okay. And i suppose the one that i mean. They're all exciting missions. But perseverance is the one that i think will probably get the biggest amount of praise at least in part of the world because this is much anticipated. This is going to be the rolls royce of rovers. That's really interesting you know. Ninety percent of perseverance is leftover bits from curiosity. So it's it's it's only the rolls royce. Because it's got all kinds of new bells and whistles but it's basically an old bitter twenty twelve model. One curiosity went. Wow that's like what was it the skylab that was just a leftover rounded wasn't it yeah that's right and polo and yeah well we wish them well and with that. And of course. Congratulations to the usaa. Achieving ram the martian in orbital insertion and. Maybe maybe one day they will go to the moon. Maybe yes but that. Just finish the story. The hope space craft the uae's one doesn't come out of all is basically stays in orbit because its mission is to explore the upper atmosphere of malls. Which i'm sure it will do Yes which may unlock. Some questions have been asked for a long time. He'll tell us things one hopes. Okay now let's move onto our next story. And that is the story of missing matter This is basically a story about a. What do they call it. Normal matter i think are as matter barry onic matter which seems not to exist when it should. Is that the story. it's it's a really interesting one. We've touched on this issue before because there was big news last year connected to this exactly the same problem. So what is all about is not the dark matter. And that's the first thing you have to say. That dark matter is something that we can't detect except by its gravitational interaction. The only way we know that master exists is because galaxies don't fly apart and galaxy clusters. Don't fly apart and that tells us something that we cannot detect any other way than by gravity. But when you do all the sums and those sums by the way come from observations of first of all huge numbers of galaxies to see how the distributed in the universe plus the cosmic microwave background radiation the flash of the big bang. All of that tells you that the proportions of very roughly seventy seventy five percent to dock the dark energy the energy. That's making the universe.

The UAE has ties cutter has ties I have to check on the details and But yeah, they do have it diplomatic connections with this isn't like. A complete sort of cold war or or hot war. Between them? And I actually you know I think there are some occasions of the in the Saudis they're worried about Iran but they're also GONNA say one out absolute war with Iran because there they'd be first in line for an attack. On actually interesting to look at. Cutter who is there's this blockade of cutter for some years. By. The Saudis? And is partly because Qatar is closer to Iran. and. Also been basically said we're not going to normalize ties with Israel, until Palestinian issue is is is resolved. and. So I think we're seeing interesting divides here in terms of. You know. How close are friendly towards her van as well as Israel and I'm actually kind of waiting to see what other countries in the region may follow cutters lead in speaking out against this. Deal Because most part states are either they okay with it or they're just not saying anything. So Qatar is actually out front in in public. Now saying, this is a bad idea that would happen yesterday. When they said. Sickly said was you know we would not normalize relations with Israel until the Broader deal with the palace Palestine is is resolved. Going after it strongly but yeah, that's enough to indicate what they think. Yeah I mean you they're clearly choosing sides here and So far not with Israel. Interesting.

"And that's one of the things that we do with the foundation on constantly monitoring trends to to kind of follow through with those and test them and try them, and we have a term that we love hearing I'm sure you've heard a lot with the forum as well which is the agile governance. There's a big drive for the government to be agile to be almost like the private sector I'm I'm not sure if you if you heard. This is a number of years ago, but they called by by INC because it was a run kind of like like a corporation. And so there is this this kind of dry for the public sector to run the same way that the private sector runs to run as quickly to run as. With as much agility. And and to to be held accountable to that as well and because of that, I think. We've been able to to jump on. Or even be kind of pre. The Bandwagon and test species these new technologies. And I think that's that's awesome, but it's also could be a blessing in disguise, because the UAE and specifically Dubai is internationally renowned for adopting modern technologies. Has that impacted its ability to embrace blockchain technology when it may not have yet had a chance to get a return on its investment from previous technologies I. It's a good question and I don't know if I have. A clear answer for you on that, but what I would say is that. I think it keeps going right like there are a lot of things that that you do put in place that might be on a social level that don't necessarily have that initial return. Investment but we have this kind of term within again by itself that it's called return on Dubai instead of return on investment and. Launching back to buy? Kind of. And and what that means is you know? Is this something that we see value in as as the by as government as a country, and if so even if it doesn't necessarily come to?.

"Dubai, blockchain strategy in than in the next few years, there was an Emirates blockchain strategy, which was federal a strategy so I think each time that this is looked at it's. It's kind of scaled more and more, and we hope with a lot of the work that we do. We also been scale it outside of the country into the region but yes I think been initial pillars were really trying to figure out. How we ensure efficiency security transparency kind of all of those things within our own public sector. At the time. It was pushed by the public sector. With the private sector, and then you kind of grow to kind of almost export that model and that's. I think we're the leadership angle. comes in. And you're sort of because. Some research I realized that as you say, there is this Emirates blockchain, strategy or more federal one, but initially started off as ones specifically focus for Dubai, expanded to include the Emirates and I'm assuming dead both documents feed off each other to some degree. Yeah exactly and I think what was interesting with the Dubai blockchain strategy is that when it first came out as I mentioned, it was something that the foundation also worked on smart Dubai took it on the mandate I think there were a lot of things that that were even learned in just two years between the development of of the next strategy and the previous, and then that was something that you could work off of as well so exactly. A. Great Great. And in all these things you know when you creating those kinds of strategy is something that is darling in a very insular way, or do you for example interacted a lot with. The world. Economic Forum from they're forcing destroy revolution, or did you interact with other centers of excellence around the world in building two strategies so I I was not there when both strategies or developed I can't speak necessarily to development of both, but I do know in terms of the way that we developed other strategies and the work that we do we definitely work across a multi stakeholder community, so we bring in private sector, we bring in other members of the public sector, and then of course. Know Regulatory bodies as well because you're hoping that this kind of changes a whole as mentioned ecosystem, not just from a marketing side, market standpoint, but also from. A government standpoint. So I would assume. That was, that was also done but I. Know Based on conversations that I've had with the teams that. This is something that encapsulated the number of members of the community. Yep Yeah and you mentioned you. The the strategy was fundamentally no initiative from a government efficiency standpoint and I understand. The UAE's aiming to reach fifty percent of government transactions to be done on blockchain. What has been learned during the implementation of the Dubai and the merits blocked in strategy. I think it's a good question. Actually, it's one of my one of the most interesting questions..

"Reality of the UAE how we gonna get more of that because the process began about a couple years ago but there still seems to be a little bit leeway here I think with what you're seeing in in in the banking sector now is the fact that you are a first of all there's a wave of consolidation happening so there's a focus on optimizing and and and and and increasing efficiencies and in terms of how the banks operate when you look at the twenty twenty out if you're talking about a very little expected growth in in in balance sheets we still looking at as routine as we saw in queue for an elevated level of provisioning so the only way to increase profitability will maintain profitability would be focusing on the cool side so I think there's a drive not only just to enhance the the call today and of course I think there's also digitize ation kind of going on on the bank that's why you're seeing more focus on digital banking investing in I.
