To Solve Big Problems, Sometimes You Need a Contest

"Four years ago today. Charles lindbergh became the first person to fly solo nonstop across the atlantic. One of the reasons was to win. Twenty five thousand dollars in prizemoney. The orteig prize was one of the inspirations for the modern x prize. A competition aimed at solving big problems. The latest one to be announced is sponsored by john. Musk who promised one hundred million dollars for carbon removal technology to combat climate change. Musk's own spacex was likely inspired by the first ever launched in nineteen ninety-six. It offered ten million dollars to build a privately financed reusable spaceship. A new show on sorry is the ceo of the x prize foundation. She says that i prize created an industry. It's they're easy to look at. How many commercial. Space companies existed. How much funding was going to them. You know as an entrepreneur. When i look at it and see how this ten million dollars. broaden hundred million dollars into the teams who competed and then Nine look at the industry that's been created in the level of activity. I think we can Clearly draw a line that will show an exponential growth because of You know just changing the mindset and challenging. What was believed to be possible to this competition. Well it's interesting because ten million dollars of course a lot of money but in terms of seeding an industry it's really not right if you invested ten million dollars with a single company as opposed to planting it as a seed letting all these flowers grow. You wouldn't really have any system absolutely with a competition. You basically don't give the money to anyone until they show you that they have the solution. So you're guaranteed a solution before you spend the money so what better way to really get for you. Want and i think it's a beautiful model of especially when used you have problems that That complex and that innovation has been stagnant and competition can really change the game in those

Top 15 ideas for an equitable economy

"I'm pleased today to be joined by dr phil jackson of new profits. She's one of the managing partners. Enchila- thank you so much for being with us ramona. Thank you for having us especially on this exciting day where we're finally announcing the fifteen solutions for the grand challenge. I am so glad we could talk about this today. Because we've been we've talked about this in the past as you were taking in the applications for this so for those in the audience who don't know what the grand challenges when you tell us. Kind of broadly. What it is and then we can talk about. Who's some of the people have been selected to the future burton grand challenges partnered by new profit in partnership with x prize foundation. Mit solve and j f f. And what we're doing is we're giving finalist access to six million dollars. In funding to implement solutions that will rapidly reskill twenty five thousand workers into higher wage jobs and it quip influential workforce boards with vetted tools to help get americans back to work in why this is so important as that many times philanthropy. We actually give grants based on ideas. These grants are going to be given based on outcomes so it's really going to be down to how many people were trained and how many people were placed in jobs with living wages. What were you looking for as you're looking for the organizations the groups to go forward in this competition so yet so even before cova working on this initiative for two years and really what we senator around were were adults busy people who are in need of upskilling but who can't take the opportunity cost to take off a year or go back to get a four year degree so we know going into this that we were looking for accelerated learning programs and also programs that would allow a learner or a worker to earn while they learn. We know that you know people. We think. A lot about the fifty six million. Us residents who are are working minimum. Wage jobs you know less than living wage jobs that they need opportunities to to skill up in a fashion that works for their complex and busy lives and so we really wanted these entrepreneurs to be willing to center the experience of these learners right and to create solutions that will work alongside their busy lives. We talk a lot about trying to upskill four jobs now. Actually and jobs of the future are each of the program. Said are in your rapid reskilling. Are they ernest. You learn absolutely in the way that we're thinking about it. There's two things one is like you said ramona. The future of work has become the president of work right so a lot of things that we thought were going to happen. Happened in cove. It industries went away that we thought were recession proof. And so what we've tried to do with all of these trainings. Is that one is their offered free of charge to the job seekers. And we're asking about preneurs a train for jobs that will not be impacted in the future works of thinking in the next three to five years and where people can leave the short term training and actually get a job with a living wage in so those are the parameters that we looked at. And we want to make sure that these trainings were geared towards people. Don't have a bachelor's degree and have other barriers employment. There are fifteen different organizations. That will be part of the solution. They're a combination of rapid reskilling. An mit sauce. And so we're looking at the fifteen solutions of the cohort that. We're validating at workforce boards. They just came to us from different challenges. There's a couple that. I'm just really excited about the first. Is this company. That's called charger help. And what's so interesting about that. One is that they are training people to be technicians into service electric car charging stations. What's interesting to me about. The idea is one is who knew that that was a job. You know. I didn't in to who knew that you could do that type of job and not have a bachelors degree so in a sixteen week program. They're able to train someone to do this job and they can go and make upwards of hundred and fifty dollars an hour but the company itself charged for help actually pays their employees up to fifty dollars an hour but they're giving them this training. That has a great market potential. And so that's one example. Another example that we're really excited about is generations. Usa there are national nonprofit ner actually international in many ways but they're allowing people to on the job while they're like learning a new trade and they do everything from building trades to manufacturing to data to technology while they're getting the technical training they're also giving them the wraparound supports of that professional training. And what some might call soft skills but are you know really important professional skills if we're going to actually obtain a job. They're getting paid while they do it. They're tuning to like the wraparound supports. A worker might need so in terms of transportation and childcare and they are promised a job on the other end of it and so as a learner. When you're thinking about that opportunity cost of taking you know sixteen weeks or three months off to learn. You're getting some upside in the beginning. And also you've got this guarantee on the back end.

You fans of bowed many many times and so i want to dive deep. Is that all right man. Please statement somewhere new love good so the first thing i wanna do is a kind of style from the obvious and then go a little bit more so we talked about the question nutrition. It was his unit. Con- up blah blah blah. It's the stuff. That leonard on the tony robbins podcast But you didn't start out being a business builder and entrepreneur. You start out with something that might in fact seemed like the polar opposite of the pat success. Which was your lover. Phil and you went to film school. How did your family feel about you tripping the light brand tacit rather get yourself a good steady job I think that you know my mom lived in constant and still does quite. Frankly live in a constant state of panic that i was going to do nothing with my life that i would Be unhappy in some way and so she worried but very quietly so when i was a kid she was very encouraging. Wanted me to go chase my dreams and so i didn't grow up with that like pressure from my parents or anything. They wanted to see me happy. I was very passionate about film making. They could see my excitement. They wanted to see me. Pursue it So they were very encouraging about that. My dad is. I got towards graduation. Film school he sent me starting at month. Six or five hundred member exactly my senior year. It was five more months four months three more months one month at two when he was not going to be helping me financial anymore so literally the day. I graduated I had no more assistance from my family so that was actually great so from that perspective. He didn't have too many concerns Because he just believed. I would somehow figure it out. So that long story but took me through my remedial jobs phase where you know barely making ends meet but i made some I made some what ended up being quite smart decisions around managed apartment complexes and things like that really cheap rent as why was while you were in films who know right after i graduated. Put again as about weirdness right like all you went to film school you went to film school. I assuming you want to make films and managing apartments. It's a weird mix. I mean we know people go into the arts often wait tables. You managed apartments. That must've been that entrepreneurial spirit in you as well even doing that film time. it's interesting. there really wasn't and i. I am by nature. I am the world's worst entrepreneur. I don't have any real entrepreneurial Instincts in me so even the apartment managing thing was was totally an accident. It was me capitalizing. An opportunity that presented itself and that i will say i've been good in my life about winning opportunity presents itself. I take that opportunity But if that one hadn't fallen in my lap than that it's terrifying to think what the outcome would have been. So when i went to film school i thought that i would. I was showing real promise zone school. And i thought that i had natural talent for it and that shows you my mindset. I was very focused on what what comes naturally to me and so i thought it maitlis gifted filmmaker and so the first half of them school. I did very very well. And then i got selected as one of the four people to direct senior thesis film. Which is a big deal and so when it happened was like oh my god. I'm like bud shows. I'm literally one of four people chosen to direct this film. And i'm gonna make this. It's going to be amazing. i'm gonna go out. I'm gonna get a three picture. Deal from hollywood off the back of how good this film is going to be. And and my life will be. That's literally what i was thinking. And i showed up on the first day of domain with virtually no preparation and to give i wrote the script like to the minute that it was due so a couple of hours before. I jot something down which only feeds ending it gets elected which only feeds into. I'm just naturally good at this. So i roll up onset completely unprepared and i fail miserably very publicly incredibly embarrassingly and then that shakes my whole world and makes me realized that i am. I am not a talented filmmaker like that was the hard realization that i had phase at that moment.

And are neutralizing county is 32,000 and out to put in comparison, the pre clinical data from from AstraZeneca Oxford vaccine The neutralizing data. There was 40 40, and we're at 32,000. So it's like 100 times more neutralizing, which is pretty amazing. The vaccine has to be manufacturer ble. The nice thing about the Kovac's platform is the platform we're using.

An Experimental COVID-19 Vaccine Begins Human Clinical Trials

"May May Peter Thanks for joining us. Great to be any pleasure. We're GONNA talk about Kovacs Peptide vaccines and the company's efforts to develop a vaccine for covid Nineteen Kovacs is a division of United Biomedical which has long produce. Vaccines May maybe you can begin by just talking about how Kovacs came about. He Asher. So it started about six months ago when cove nineteen was coming across ocean and essentially how you know my husband, my Lou gave Peter a content listen i. think we could do something about this curve nineteen we we were ground SARS, the first one almost twenty years ago, and thankfully for the world never win anything anywhere but this covid nineteen doesn't appear to be. Letting down. So I think we can leverage our platform for both diagnostics vaccine's what do you think and of course Peter was like absolutely let's do it. So that was the birth. Origination of Kovacs. Now here we are in body told for one vaccine later. Up there you're you're both in investor and vice chairman what was the relationship? How did you know me and what led you to become involved? So I had met may may an Lou years earlier through the X Prize Foundation they were at our annual visionary event, which is our big get together with sort of world leaders and Philanthropists and Ed became really super close friends. We have kids same age and I joined their board of a sister company called United Neuroscience, which is now rebranding as back sanity. and. I found them to be just absolutely brilliant passionate dedicated biotech leaders who had a very different mindset from the beginning that that redneck was very. Resonated with me from a perspective of things I care about about demonetizing democratizing healthcare, and and. So I joined their board at this other company. And in March when they called me a like of course, let's jump in and I helped pull together the Capitol to kick Kovacs off. And then May. and Lou who are co CEOS of Kovacs and also the other company vaccine entity. You'll have an amazing science team. Globally around the world and end within thirty days will was extraordinary from a standing start being able to use and leverage different parts of the of the previous companies. May Enter team first of all developed what is now the most sensitive most Pacific blood antibody test? This is not PR. This is have you developed antibodies right? The blame by test serology and they developed thirty different vaccines. And started. Looking at those the efficacy, those vaccines and ended up with a lead candidate, which is pretty extraordinary. Think of you as a a fairly big vision guy people may know you as the founder of the x prize earlier singularity. University. Also co-authored a very optimistic view of the future in abundance. Bestseller really a good guy who's embraced technology is making a better world. In some respects you you're interested Kovacs's understandable given the scope of this pandemic at the same time it. Almost, a bit mundane in that. It's it's not a problem necessarily in in need of a new technological solution. Is there something about Kovacs that? Inspires you in light of the other things you do. While they're is the it's the platform. Here in the platform, something, that may his mom? Who is the you know the? Founder of the company and and really the inventor of the technology. So we're living in a world right now that is healthcare isn't healthcare at sick care and the system takes care of you after you're sick and while we spend an extraordinary amount of money. In the United. States. Are Healthcare is awful I mean really is terrible. It's comparatively to other countries money we spend we should be ashamed of what we get result

Emory SKIES. Early cancer diagnostic. This I of technologies that we we support through. Lvs Dvd Vision Fund and. It's been amazing journey because one thing when you just read newspaper when one thing you would just trying to discover the crop to sorry cryptocurrencies world through you know reading newspaper and Internet the other one. If you beat of Bitcoin an any like in shock you know every time in positive or negative short volatile right. So you'll this exactly what I did. With investment side and Longevity Vision Fund has been such a great door opener because one thing when you call someone up and say look. I'm writing an article or I'm writing a book on IT AND PSALM. One into show me your technologists. Or what are the break through that you guys doing in the lab the other thing when you're investor with money and people immediately look at this as a as a You know good exchange of ideas information opportunity to invest in in exchange of our I support and including the funding that we can we can do. So that's that was not an easy part but I think it was good just to decide to continue to build on my investment profession. And we're just using different LAKELAND Julia Technology Lenses when I was doing venture and I'm doing venture cap- it's Venture capital investments in in Longevity field Hundred Million Font is just really insignificant in in Financial Industry Germs. But we may depress immediately. 'cause we at some point of time we became so pre or the largest longevity focused on funding the world. This is not to tell you how great we are. This is to tell you how your fragile in the mature this part of industry and investment fields so that was like you know thing number one thing number two. I thought okay. I have so much to share and I need to reach out. People and I start to produce infographics electronic books. I'm actually writing my goal growing young. Which is you know my version of longevity for dummies. I obviously can use for them is because of the copyrights and no one likes to call himself dummy. I consider myself tummy in stealing this area so I started to to write my book. It's going to be published December this year or next year helping people to navigate inland jovanotti field because Specifically a recently longevity became such a confusing topic so today you read Sean. You need to go outside of the US and do your stem cell injection tomorrow. You read that. It's their syrupy is not proven yet might have side effects. So we'll do or today you read. Blueberries are great for our body. And tomorrow we read. The Blueberry says actually have certain assets which erodes your stomach from inside just so many people go to fold Mount Mount Saint like. I don't WanNA track. This is something super important happen. They will find me okay. So this is the idea behind this book. You know I'm doing the Lord of Electronic Public Publications on that front. Make sure my biggest problem that the whole. Gbd's thing for me is part of my mission. I'm doing this for free and you know every time I'm sharing this way publishing the media industry they not you be supportive of me because well. The economic model doesn't necessarily work on distributing content for free. But we'll sorted out. Okay so this. This is my avenue number two to to change the world and change life of the people and to other things. I love Supporting You know huge pro bowl in the projects you know. I'm good friends with Peter and you know our friends and X Prize Foundation. I don't know how familiar you are with with experts. Give some background is so what do you do is a x prize? Foundation is established in California. I think it started with Larry Page Eric Schmidt award of Genius Wonderful Man Behind that we x prize Competition is competition among technologies to solve world biggest problems. So we'll you do and this Israel example you go to Elon. Musk you ask him for fifteen million dollars and we just finished this x prize competition in May last year. And then you go to the world and say the first team who's GonNa Invent Open source software like application. The you can put on old android or iphone give to kids in Africa people in prison and they will have an opportunity to learn English or a heated late. They native language in twelve months time with zero adults support. So that's that's amazing and we've just done it. We've finished in in my last year we actually know the outcome of I x prize. It's called today version galactic so the and I X Prize. Competition was around building the Frost Private Spaceship. So winning team you know. Get some money Richard Branson bought rights for that developed. Its in the Virgin Galactic. So that's next price. So what I'm doing in this field as the Innovation Board member O X Prize you know. I went to a lot of great longevity minds around the world and say we need to do competition am on treatments interventions to reverse our aging. So it's going to be age reversal X. PRICE. We currently in design stage of that. And I do hope we're GONNA launch end of this year Early next year and then Final thing is. I do a lot of corporate. Gt programs because it's it's so easy to create legiti focused environment in organization gets many of us spent a lot of our office anyway yet. Mostly hours almost exactly. An and corporations actually has great hierarchy to implement the changes so I'm working with companies smallest company of done was company with thirty three thousand people that will smallest and the largest. I'm doing now. It has three hundred thousand people in twenty plus countries. And I'm helping them to create to to Make their offices and the way they treat people Much more DVD friendly going through. You know five different Lindsey VICI buckets and it's very simple changes. But it's just changed the whole dialogue. The whole relationship would be in employers and and employee. So that's I think it's just amazing and it's so rewarding and every time. They asked me like surrogate. We'll do one. Can we like bay? You and I said well the only currency these counts for me is how many lives would change in the boys wait. So that's that's that's what I there. There's someone watching. This only have five employees ten employees and they only get some change going. What can they do? This is very interesting thing so I'm part of UK parliamentary group on national TV to strategy. And I had a person who's very close to two British royal family. Approach me off to one of the events and say well. This is sold grade. But how does this relate to the structure of British economy where it's just a lot of mom and POPs businesses whereas just a lot of small and medium enterprises when people who employ three five ten people? It how we approach that. So that's you know he ask exactly the same question and I said okay. This is great so what we need to do. With developing by autumn this year developing free of charge toolkit for corporate longevity program for small and medium enterprises and this. There's so many changes they cost nothing to implement and We're GONNA roll it out for the first with India speak in the world and then we translated to Chinese Spanish Russian It's a solicitor and I'm also working on a separate program. Judy for women. Because women has a they have A little bit different more responsible view on longevity. They they don't decide like you know we for our own. They thinking about their kids about their parents about their reproductive. Also this in much more diverse view online. Gts that I got from women. So that's this is just. It's been amazing experience to change my Lens. Rediscover you know women world and you know and I'm also working on a book called Lindsay bt principles for kids because there's so many things that we can instill now from the beginning in terms of healthy living so I don't WanNa lose this opportunity. Yeah I've got a young son so I'm always really at eighteen months so Really young but it's how can we impact that next generation and that's so important and you you talk about just the overall longevity goal of people what about for you what are what are your plans in in terms of. Your Life Span. What what are you trying to live to try to do during that time? Okay good Is it the question? Like what do I do And then so then the audience can actually you know. Try to replicate this or give it a thought about you. Know how to leave healthy today. And what do I? What do we need to tomorrow to leave two hundred healthy and heavier? Yeah I WANNA know what people should be doing today. And then were implementing those things today. What can we do in the future? Just even continue that success. Okay good so when you think about just one minute how we should think about longevity right. And I've developed framework. It's a very simple framework. We're going to use the article pretty soon on that goal. Three Horizons of longevity him. So every time you see in use only Jewish or some suggestion you can put put it in a three one out of three horizons and it's very simple to To analyze all eve. Gt Information Orca. Sharks That we got into this so horizon number. One is executive question what we should do today to live longer. Well let's say two hundred healthy and happy here. We don't talk about lifespan. I talk about health spent quality years to live. You know not your reason miserable. Yeah fragile lost three five years so I'll live so this is I'm GonNa come back to listen the minute but you know every time you say you know every time you hear well. Here's a diet. Now here's the supplements. Here's your physical activity. Here's your meditation and good sleep. This is your horizon one. We're GONNA come back to. This is the most interesting part because you can start changing tomorrow. Even today So that's one horizon number. Two is as about technologies that we invest in through legitimation fund and this technologists. Which would you know transformed fundamentally transform our ability to extend our healthy life? Okay I'm talking about you. Know genetic being and in overall human engineering. I'm talking about stem cells. I'm talking about three D by printing Just a lot of different stuff which is under development now so I don't try. Now wait until it will be you know become approved and accepted. GonNa therapy and that we can rely on that. So that's that's how is in to an horizon three and I'm talking about this with combination of excitement and fear is like really visionary terrific thing when you know we can then switch digital robotic avatars when our brain going to be connected with supported. Bharti FACIAL INTELLIGENCE. And then we can. Have you know all all Budi boss? Bartz replaced it Sarah. So but this don't worry this is in the next twenty thirty fifty years and I'm not sure how this whole thing develop the I in a time so we'll let me come back to your question. Which is what we can do today. So it's literally doing free of charge. Longevity Academy which is serious off five to seven five to ten minutes video covering of each of five longevity buckets but I want to. This is actually my first time. I can share it with the audience in this form. And this is part of corporate program that would we implementing for free so thing number one so he fight for them so one is your annual check comprehensive annual checkup. Okay and when I have my thirty seconds on longevity. I'm pushing people to do that. That the end any issues that right after you know you joined fifty years More than half the deaths is is because of cancer or because of heart disease. So what you need to do is to do like really early diagnostic. Can we just invested in a company called freedom? I mean we are really small investors. They they they backed up by a lot of the very interesting future investment firms so they do early cancer diagnostic and when when you look at the figures for five Types of cancer if you do really early diagnostic stage. One your recovery. Chances is from ninety..

"Guests for the next couple of hours. Dear friend, sir. Charles Shulz worked at Martin Marietta aerospace for ten years in weapon systems and computer based automated test to quit -ment. He wrote the nuclear EMP test software for the Pershing missile system worked on the patriot the Copperhead tank killer and the advanced attack helicopter systems he has performed research under grants and was knighted and received the long-term grant for his research in robotics artificial intelligence, and here he is back on coast to coast author as well, a fossil hunters guide to Mars and the living. Galaxy Charles always a pleasure. It's always a pleasure to Georgia. And thank you for inviting me back. How have you been? Oh, I've been so busy the whole last year. I spent doing movies back to back I've gotten into the stunt industry. So it's been a very very busy year. You're the stunk person. Yes. But mostly what I do is wire work. I fly people. Superheroes. And that sort of thing worked on the Neil Armstrong movie, the first movie as well with that was a great movie. I like that. Worlds. Don ward for that one in how realistic, do you think that movie was compared to what really happened? You know, it was pretty much right on target. I knew many of the people involved in the project when I was in the space industry, and we had the great good fortune to have a number of astronauts and other people involved there. I'll warden from fifteen was there we had numerous conversations heated seventy five seventy five over to the moon during his mission. And it was a lot of fun, and we all have input. And we were able to get the thing. Looking amazing. Just amazing. What do you think Charles has been over the last year or show some of the biggest space news stories out there? Well, I know a lot of people would focus on things like the SpaceX capsule explosion or the the Israeli land or failure. But I would say the biggest news is the fact that the commercial industry is basically taking over space. I mean, it's amazing. We've got a launch for new shepherd which is blue origin tomorrow at eight thirty central time AM and SpaceX is going to do their number seventeen laws of the ISS possibly on the third. They were going to launch on the first, but there's been electrical problems on the space station that prevented him from doing that. So soon as cured they're gonna launch. But I would say the fact that we're not dependent on government to do space travel anymore. And the the movement for commercial and private space has grown literally explosively over the last few months, Charles the the fact that the privatization is really taking off. What did they do for brain power? They just hire all the ex-nasa folks and people like that who were part of the space programs. Well, in some cases, that's true. But there are many many talented engineers, and if you realize a couple of simple things rocketry is just plumbing and computers tied together. It becomes pretty easy. If you find anybody with a talent for programming and for physics and good head for math. You can find a lot of people out there who are quite capable and up to the task. I mean that's been demonstrated amply in the last year. I think that the biggest braintrust isn't necessarily NASA. It's all the people on the outside who didn't go to work for NASA and are fighting hard to get a position, but they can make a real contribution. Absolutely now. Of course, what privatization wants to do is really use reusable spacecraft is that viable. Yes. It absolutely is. And we've seen many of the boosters launch in return for SpaceX. I know that we've seen a couple of ops small. Obstacles in that. But now that they've gotten down. Wow. You see to launch vehicles return to the pads and Kennedy and land, and they're just within seconds of each other. That's amazing. And then to see them capture another one on a barge. I know that they they lost their large heavy booster on the last landing attempt on the bar because rough seas piece of hardware that didn't exactly match the size of the booster. But they recovered their fairing and a lot of other hardware, and it's all being reconditioned reuse cuts the launch costs amazingly. Now, what do you think of? Let's talk a little bit about the failure of the Israeli moon. Lander pretty dramatic that even got it there in the first place. But what do you think? Yes. A lot of people think of it as a failure. But I see as a large victory and a number of ways, you know, it all got started with the the the x prize foundation and the Google x prize for the lunar Lander and these Rayleigh team actually came from that challenge. They actually built their own space vehicle. They launched it on a private space rocket SpaceX vehicle. They achieved lunar orbit with their vehicle and we're getting good telemetry. And the only thing that stopped them at this point is that they lost communication, or I should say the processor appears to lost communication with some of its sensors, and it automatically rebooted to clear the condition well in that period of time this ship is descending. And there was no rocket thrust to slow it down. So when it struck the moon, it was going over kilometer per second. It was about twenty eight hundred miles per hour. So did make a landing but very hard one. And that's the first unintentional crash on the moon in forty eight years, by the way, are they going to try again. They absolutely are. In fact, Benjamin Netanyahu said that they will be doing it within two to three years and they're going to succeed this time. So it's definitely a step in the right direction. Private individuals and spacecraft make a wonderful combination. They've built some amazing stuff in this period of time and. Gonna see great strides forward. Well, I think so too. That's exciting. What about other countries though? So Charles, I mean, they seem to be coming along pretty fast too. Well, they do and I go back to the the Google x prize the lunar x prize just because of that alone. There have been four countries that have entered the space race, India, Malaysia, Israel, and Hungary, have all started space programs as a result, some private and some government funded overall the teams on that challenge of invested over three hundred million dollars to meet the challenge. Now, here's the funny thing the challenge was not fulfilled in the period of time that was posted. However, the Israeli team did receive a one million dollar more or less consolation prize from the Google x prize rectifies foundation as a result of their launching spacecraft controlling so, you know, it's it's really been a burst of innovation and there have been advances in miniaturization in three D printing that have come out of this as a result. So. You know, we're going to see some exciting times. What's going to happen to NASA will it fade away? I don't think. So you know, it is a big huge agency with many diverse functions going on. And I think that when people think of NASA initially, they thought of it as essentially base trucking company to get us into space and get us back down safely. Nasa has so many different organizations attached to it with so many different fields of research. And so many different centers. I don't see them going away anytime in the near future. But I do see them retreating from a lot of the design. They really are supposed to be capable of getting a space and back again. But you know, there's nothing wrong with the research. They do I think was going to happen is a lot of the research centers will be privatized as well after all there's an incentive to make money on the things you discover, and it certainly helps our standard of living and the US economy. Well, it does. But it's it's exciting though is in its returns we're living in a time. That's verging on where we're going to see hotels in space. Common travel. Anybody can buy a ticket pretty much at this point. We're going to be seeing lunar tourist very soon. Are you still looking for a nominees on Mars? I have been, but I've I really have to admit I've throttled back a lot. What I did do spend some time making a a sort of a gallery where I just play a lot of the things that I found, however that galleries of virtual website. So anybody can go to my side they can go into the gallery, and they treat it like video game or they put it on there Oculus headset or VR headset. They can walk around in there, and they can explore and look at everything, and it's a lot of fun. It's virtual science center that I'm buildings of the people anywhere in the world can go online look at this thing. And learn something they didn't know, and it's you know, cost-free it's like pedia or Google. What did you find on Mars that still remains one of the most baffling things for you? I would say that every time they got near an anomaly with the Rover. They turn the other way in front. But I would say that the fact that there is so much evidence the planet wasn't he'd come with oceans. And I I find that. Now, you know over these years been fifteen years to be honest Nath is slowly embraced many of the things that I published the presence of a water table, the presence of water in the atmosphere, and those things are pretty good indicators that the planets than what all along and clearly we should be looking for life there. You know, the findings of methane the all these things, but what gets me is the millions upon millions of fossils all over the surface. And they're very clear. I mean, once you see them, you can't unsee them. They're still looking for life on other worlds. They're talking about going to sell it us or looking at the ice of Europa. And yes, those are great and laudable goals, but we've got the answer already in our hands. I just it's frustrating to see that they have not embraced the facts. No, not you have a why why not that's an excellent question. I think a lot of times we we often suffer from not invented here syndrome. You know, if you're working with your funding. It's just not valid. But we're finding so many things on Mars. You know, they're finding water. They just registered last week in earthquake. You know, it's a hot life planet. I mean, it's just a matter of time, isn't it? Well, you would think so there's no question that some of the things that we've learned are going to play a pivotal role. When we send people to Mars because in my opinion, there is still a grave biological hazard. If we don't have some sort of protection in place where people who land on the planet. You know, as you know, we would have no sort of immunity or resources to prevent the infection. And it wouldn't have to be, you know, anything amazing simplify fungus or bacterium, and we would have no way of controlling it. What's going on at the international space station's Charles. What are they doing there? A lot of times their research projects focus on certain things like the physics of flames aero, gravity, and this is helpful in. Learning how to make better rocket engines focuses on human biological capabilities and the ability to adapt to or suffer from microgravity zero g over long periods of time. There have been a lot of genetic and life science experiments one. I'm really disappointed by is. They're not doing the sort of crystal growth experiments, and and other things that could lead to a lot of products. I mean, they do them on a small scale. But you know, initially they were looking at growing super crystals and crystals of proteins, and they can't do that on the space station because the vibration, the noise the machinery running disturbs the process, I think that the real solution to that is to get the thing fully staffed, we've only got three to six people up there all the time, and it really is meant to support more people right now, they're a lot of times running just a holding pattern to keep the thing alive. Well, they gonna pull that off force. I hope so because it's a huge investment in a very valuable piece of hardware..
