"Essentially what it's become when these companies I shutdown operations on March thirteenth. There's my favorite date again. It's not my favorite. They expected to cancel cruises for up to thirty days. Believing the crisis would quickly pass much like the two thousand two SARS pandemic that killed fewer than eight hundred worldwide. And they would be up and running again soon. Some crew were sent home in March including many entertainment employees. While some new crew members were brought on. But on April ninth. Which almost a month later the US CDC band cruising in US waters through at least July so these cruise ships can't even come into US waters much less citing ongoing outbreaks among crew who remained on ships the put new rules in place limiting repatriation to private transportation and requiring cruise line executives. To sign legal agreements assuring. The agency's health rules will be followed. Some countries including Haiti in the Philippines are requiring crew members to be tested before they can return and we know all about the availability of the cove in nineteen tests. And you gotTA BE TESTED. But we don't have any tests so you're just gonNA have to wait. Schrodinger patient others Grenada cruise companies to pay for a land-based quarantine. Once crew members arrive. You can imagine the cruise companies reaction in this is totally new situation for. Everybody said Tayo NEOM editor of cruise business magazine. There is no guidebook for this. Some crew members have spent days in small windowless rooms with no information about when they will be going home as their ships float in and out of port areas. Some are on long journeys. They sorry somewhere on long journeys crossing the Atlantic Ocean without any assurance of their home countries. Or when they'll be allowed to dock some were told for weeks that their ships were virus. Free only to see colleagues quietly evacuated to Miami hospitals days later many feel like an afterthought after watching cruise companies US diplomatic and logistical channels to promptly repatriate passengers but not crew members. The delayed repatriation process could jeopardize the industry going forward said Rockford whites director of the Maritime Studies at Tufts University Adelaide. It's going to be harder to get people to fill these roles because I imagine a lot of these folks are not gonna WanNa come back after. They've been treated like that I mean. Would you write a job on a cruise ship and then all of a sudden you were for all intents and purposes a hostage of the boat? You can't go home. You can't get a helicopter off. You can't get a boat onto land. You're not allowed to dock in any port because all the governments have closed their borders to these people. What does that duty? Oh what's that photo of with the people standing around? The this is a crew members on Royal Caribbeans Majesty of The Seas Cruise ship demand answers from the captain. Not me about when they will be going home on May Fifteenth. And there's what like dozens and dozens of people standing on the deck. Nobody's doing social distancing wearing masks. Are there like yeah? I get happy when I see people. Not Social distancing. There was a bar that opened up back in town here today. With an outdoor seating area and plenty of people were not seeded. They were just standing around talking to one another and I was like yes. I honked when I went by Nice. I heard reports of that myself. I drove by a place that I know has a rather large outdoor seating area. I heard voices that are obviously people outside enjoying themselves having a beer or whatever but I couldn't tell how busy you know from just driving by but I kind of went on my way before pop into the studio here just to see I would call the place. I drove by unusually busy for it's outdoors but then again you couldn't be inside so right. I know we're getting off the article here a little bit but did you say or did somebody say one of the chance that there was a maybe they were requiring you to wear masks to come inside like us the John or any of the vending machines that okay. Let's cool. I like that yet as right now from what? I understand it New Hampshire. There is not a requirement For customers to wear masks. There's a recommendation I believe by the state government but not a requirement. Let's go ahead and go to some of your calls and your thoughts. We're going to go to farmer Garrick. Who's calling from Central Illinois Pharma? Garrick can you hear me yes again? You're on free talk live. What's on your mind. Hey thanks Just.

"This is science Friday. I'm IRA flow later in the hour. We'll talk about circadian rhythms and the biology of time but I last month SPACEX. Hey sex launched sixty satellites into low earth orbit as part of its starling project. Which Elon Musk's ambitious goal to provide satellite based broadband and he'll need to launch forty two thousand total satellites to complete the project but each of those satellites is program to Deorbit and burn up in the atmosphere? And unless there is a problem then the satellites will burn up in Earth's atmosphere within one one to five years and you add to that the roughly two thousand satellites lights already in low earth orbit and well spaces getting pretty crowded with our stuff and all our stuff is creating a lot of junk estimates for of the big pieces of trash about ten centimeters. That's about the size of your palm about twenty thousand of those objects. The real tiny stuff over a hundred rid million particles floating around above our heads. How can we clean up the planet's atmospheric attic? And what questions should we be thinking about. As as more and more satellites and companies are getting into the game. My next guests are here to talk about that. More by JR is an associate professor of aerospace engineering in engineering mechanics at the University of Texas. At Austin Welcome to science Friday. Hey how's it going brother good to be nice to have you alice. Gorman is a space archaeologist. Gist associate professor in the humanities arts and Social Sciences at Flinders University Adelaide South Australia. Her new book is called Dr Space Junk versus the universe archaeology and a future. Welcome to science Friday. Alex I want. I want to read from your book about. Just what is up there in space. You say Orbiting Earth right now satellites that work satellites that don't work. The rocket stages that delivered did them. Bolts canisters. Faring exploded fragments. Flexible paint shrapnel tools fuel and possibly a remnant organic waste from human spaceflight missions. I guess I mean space Pu Is there any way to keep track of all of this Alice. Well we have.

"Those two things together and the funny they'll come if you create the habitats and minimize the stresses dot com but it's not like planting planting trees. We actually dig the hole. Put the train you watch it grow in patients and overtime. If you create those micro climates micro habitats they'll be there. Alison lesson related question. We're in Australia. Could we get some reliable information about what types of fungus safety and possible benefits. This is a great question. We've had virtually no ethnomusicologist humans looking at human use of Funky. There's one type of written in ninety five in a book. Put out by the so you Siro called Fungi one eight imagine if titled. There's also fungi one B and check code op-ed coladas probably wrote the most important paper even written on aboriginal aboriginal use of Funky and Australia and documented seven types of truffles were eaten by Aboriginal paypal or not were Asian as well as some medicinal fun game then there was the second researcher called Jim trippy from United States who also looked at it all truffles in Australia but basically the how the research that's been done. This is another holier. That's been entirely collected very tragically. Most of that knowledge now is actually being lost so lift. It'd be wonderful if we can somehow tap into that knowledge. I wanted to ask regarding materials. I presume the plastic industry will back on any profits. They might be losing if they gain a successful competitor. Can you tell us a little bit about what you might be thinking about that aspect of development. We're presently not at a sufficient scale to you. Invoke fear into the large chemical industry. They are following us. We get emails and phone calls from all the time checking in and it's about starting to gain and more traction so for example are building construction materials are not very popular in the United States because we don't build frequently with organic materials whereas we've had a significant -nificant amount of poll within the European Union because natural mineral fibre products mineral installation or wood fiber insulation have gained far more traction. They're so with any societal change things take a tremendous amount of time and we're slowly starting to gain traction and I think until we hit that critical mass and distribute the technology more broadly where it it needs to be. That's when we'll start to garner more attention shifts happening in regulation already in Hobart City Council outlawed. Put a ban on so we'll use plastics just last last week so if they'd starting to happen Launceston City Council is considering doing the same course Europe have done a ban and this oughta diverse range of biot- plastics that could replace synthetic plastics. Tim Rice is a number of outfits and places like Indonesia where it's a big problem that have actually got viable solutions that can scalable and this unafraid would have to be the latched go for it. I heard Paul Samat is that his name got incredible. What mushrooms can do in cleaning up toxic waste nuclear waste oil from the oceans. Can anyone speak to that so fungi. Gye are really good at producing complex enzymes what are known as ice. Oh enzyme so within plants plants are only made out of cellulose. They're also made out of this. Substance is called Licnen. Brown waxy substance that helps bind things together and it's a very large molecule so the same enzymes that break down Lignin within trees other plants can also attack known as long term scientific name polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons and that's basically petrochemicals simple term things like plastics so so I know some great research coming out of Tom Fox Lab University of Wisconsin where they've used thinner keady or rust fungus to break down plastics namely polypropylene and there's been some great work by organizations like Paul Stamps's Fungi Perfecta were they've used human hair to stop oil because hair's very Oli Phillip and then use Horota's Australia's the common tree waist which produces a large number of these enzymes to slowly degrade and breakdown petrochemicals like from oil spills from what we've heard today amazing enterprise possible study as possible if anyone here knows vice-chancellors safe from flinders or the University Adelaide Universal South Australia. We've got the Weight Institute for Agricultural. Research Adelaide is ideal. Do you have a wine industry in take agriculture I mean the potential is fantastic so give them a nudge and it will be tremendous to act on some of the bright ideas. We've heard today today. Would you please thank my and Gavin and Allison Bryan. You've been listening to the magic mushrooms with Brian Pickles from the University of Reading Dr Alison Polio.
