Mutual-appreciation anxiety: Putin and Erdogan
"At a rally yesterday the prime minister of armenia nicole passion. Yon warned of an attempted military coup. He told crowds. It was the army's job to defend the country. It was up to the people to decide whether or not he should step down. Y'all guy even hats manhattan borough. She mr young has faced protests since a peace deal struck in november. In which is our by. John gained territory in nagorno-karabakh a largely ethnic armenian enclave. Mr john has protests since a peace deal was struck in november in which is by john games territory in nagorno-karabakh a largely ethnic armenian enclave clashes over the region had erupted repeatedly since nineteen ninety-four drawing in russia which stood behind armenia and turkey which back oscar by john but in the end it was russian president vladimir putin and his turkish counterpart rany tight air to one who put it all to rest. Brokering a peace deal. That's just one sign of remarkable political alliance. It's picking away at the post cold war geopolitical order so i think it helps to go back to the really low point of relationship which was in two thousand fifteen. Daniel franklin is our diplomatic editor. Turkey shot down a russian warplane which had been flying over syria. Entered it's ass base and this happened. After repeated warnings to the russian pilot in the warnings became increasing urgent they were ignored and turkish f sixteen fighters that were patrolling shot. The plane down remember turkey is a nato member and had engaged with russia militarily. That's not something that happens. Often and russia responded quite vigorously by imposing sanctions on turkish products and a bombed ethnic tuchman fighters in northern syria that allies of the turks so that was Towards the end of two thousand fifteen and into the beginning of two thousand sixteen but it was a dramatic shift. If you remember in the summer of two thousand sixteen there was an attempted coup jet sopa head. The world watched in shock as a military coup and in turkey eight. Us ally a major strategic partner in the fight against isis putin was quick to call president of and commiserate show solidarity is some suspicion in turkey. Anyway that gave some advance warning to add one that his life was in danger helped move him out of the area where he might have been bombed and from that point onwards things have changed dramatically in the two men developed this kind of own tone this brotherhood of hard power. And what is it. That had changed between the downing of the bomber and this evan beginning of a friendship they first of all recognize in one another leaders who know how to use power in a full full way but there are other similarities between them in terms of that authoritarian style of leadership at home. And there's a common set of grievances against the west in turkey's case decades of not being properly accepted wanting at one stage to join the european union but being put on hold. And i think one of the reasons why the attempted coup was such a turning point for adwan is that he came under attack from his own planes and he felt that nato had improperly come to support nato countries were slow to express solidarity so he started to think that maybe putin was someone could depend upon for his own survival where he couldn't necessarily depend on nato partners and how the relationship between these two men evolved since then it's developed in some very concrete ways add one has bought from russia s four hundred air defense system. So it's a nato country. Remember that is buying russian. Ed defense system that does not delighted his nato partners. It's meant that it's been kicked out of the f thirty five fighter jet program that Nato has its face sanctions from america and despite all that it's gone ahead and on the ground in particularly serious led to kind of accommodation even though they're on opposite sides they've managed to accommodate each other's objectives in particular turkey vis-a-vis the kurds and most recently they've accommodate each other in the south caucasus. Where again they support opposite sides. The russia has played its role as a mediator. Turkey supported azerbaijan. And they've managed to end up with a result that suits them both well. Russia has peacekeeping troops on the ground. Turkey has an economic opportunity and the air that causes missed out has got nothing out of this is the west. You mentioned the word accommodating in the sense that that perhaps they're just essentially keeping out from under each other's feet or is there more to it than that. There is more to it than that because a particularly developed closer ties economically. The two economies have been struggling so they can do all the support they can get and although russia has a big surplus with turkey. Turkish contractors get a lot of business from russia. So there's the economic aspects of the relationship is particularly important and putin to have turkey as awkward member of nato driving a wedge within nato. That's a huge attraction for him and for to and sometimes to be able to play off the west and russia that's also helpful so that they play the power game very effectively by using each other and given all of that. Would you call this alliance proper and if so what should the west make of it well. It's a remarkable development given the long history between the two countries going back centuries. It's remarkable when you think of the more recent history of of the to literally coming to blows as recently as two thousand fifteen but it's far from being an alliance turkey is still a nato member that's valuable to it and it's also bristled it's fragile. Remember they are on opposite sides even where they're accommodating each other in places like syria in libya they have differences over ukraine over georgia as well so there are many places where this could deteriorate rapidly. It's rather brittle its recent depends too much on personalities with big egos so does mean that. There's absolutely no guarantee that this is going to last or even develop further so in that sense. You think the west doesn't need to worry because the alliance will eventually fall apart from. It's the concern for the west. It's certainly a challenge. One of the things that will be on the radar screen of the biden administration. It's a worry that there is this increasingly close relationship between her big important nato member and russia and although it's bristol although it could blow up in various ways it's a serious concern and worry that a nato member like turkey could drift further away from its moorings
Dennis Muilenburgs Bet on the Future
"Denis muhlenberg has kept a low public profile since he left his job. Ceo of boeing at the end of twenty nineteen. But that's about to change me. Lemberg has teamed up with air finance founder. kirsten bartok tau and other aviation luminaries to fund a special purpose. Acquisition company called new vista acquisition corp. They're aiming to raise two hundred and forty million dollars through public offerings to acquire businesses focused on transformational technologies in areas. Such a space defense and communications advanced their mobility and logistics. What does that mean well. We'll let you hear directly from denison. Kirsten who have joined today also with us on my side of the table so to speak is aviation weeks. Technology specialists and urban air mobility guru executive editor graham warwick. Just one no we will. Not be talking about boeing past or future. If you're interested in that i'd like to refer you back to our january twenty nine podcast so let's get started a dentist. Tell us what you're up to. And why joe the good morning and thanks for the chance to talk about new vista. We're very excited about this. New endeavor and that excitement starts with a tremendous opportunity that we see right now as you know i had the privilege of being the ceo of boeing back in. We celebrated our centennial in two thousand sixteen and we. We did some work together on the age of aerospace and when we look back on the history of aerospace the opportunity in front of his right. Now i think it's the greatest one in that one hundred plus year history harris face. We're seeing this convergence of technologies in a way that we've never seen before technologies that span artificial intelligence autonomy new manufacturing techniques satellite technologies new types of vehicles and propulsion systems that set of emerging technologies. All at once has never happened before. Combine that with mega-scale changes in the market. You mentioned air mobility new waste. People are moving Logistics e commerce capabilities the revolution in space in the build out of the lower orbit ecosystem and next generation defense systems that combination of technologies and mega skill. Market ships creates an unprecedented opportunity. And that's what we're focused on at new vista kirsten. Let's hear from you. What brought you into team. Up with dennis and How are you approaching this. Thanks joe and as you know. I've been pretty focused on advanced ever ability for the last four or five years Having been based in silicon valley and kind of live through the internet growth and doing venture capital back then realized early that this transition was going to happen and just from the basic technologies with your talk about them. Electrification greeted propulsion which then goes to autonomy and an ad in hydrogen which has come on the radar lately These technologies are going to completely change Aerospace so that the next twenty years is going to look completely different in the last twenty years and even the is you know. The aircraft designs will look entirely different. Lucky enough i been working on this trying to figure out the right vehicle to investment doing a lot of my own personal investing some through our finance and then was Got on the idea of a spec realized that could be the optimal solution to help. These emerging companies crossed the chasm of death valley of death that we call where you got early stage venture capital money but they needed at large amount of growth capital. These are deep company's hardware and software at their capital intensive and then added that they've got the regulatory component of the faa and. they needed some good opportunities. For large amounts of crossover capital groups. Like softbank could have been that or sovereigns but the spac product has really come in to help. These company cost the valley of death and make it to the next level where they're commercialization occurs and their operational so i couldn't be more lucky to partner with such an incredible operators dennis someone who really pushed billing to be more. Entrepreneurial created horizon ex and necks and We put together a great team here. And we're excited to make a positive difference in the landscape. So so what are you thinking. I mean how do you take these technologies that we write about all time. I guess our listeners want to know and apply them to be like a real product. What what is really exciting. Talk about this this change in the next twenty years. What can we see in practical terms. What are we going to see. joe. I think you're gonna see transformation in these four market segments that we're talking about that's way beyond what we've ever seen before i take what's happening in the in. The lower orbits space ecosystem and extraordinary the number of technologies. That we're seeing that are coming into places real applications now. The build out a satellite infrastructure nanno sats micro sats we see a market for fifty thousand plus additional small sets on orbit or the next decade. We see a number of companies who are working on breaking the cost curve for access to space new launch capabilities that are coming to bear and then new applications in terms of how to use those satellite networks to create information at useful data earth observation New kinds of reconnaissance and surveillance capabilities connectivity. In communications i think the low earth orbit ecosystem. Build out that we're seeing now is just one example of the kind of massive transfer transformation that we're gonna see that's going to create economic value. It's gonna create new companies new jobs. it's going to create a new technologies that are on the innovation edge that are now ripple out into other business sectors. So it's an exciting time to be working on this leading edge
Airliner Hit By MANPAD!
"So i wanna tell you about an airliner a airbus. A three hundred guinea hit by a man pad. So you're wondering probably wondering what is a man pad that is a man portable air defense system. mp a day that's Looks like a bazooka. It's a shoulder. Mounted sam surface to air missile. And it can be carried by antibody. Because it's not very heavy and has a three pound warhead now. Three pound warhead. Doesn't sound like he'll do a lot of damage what it can knock a big airplane out of the sky now when i was in vietnam We were called. Destroy la back. Then the sa seven and it's picked up the name grail also but in russia they still call it destroy. It's a russian Device and back then. It was heat-seeking only work only hit your airplane from behind what we were would home in a basically on a heat source which typically is the exhaust but now they have a new version of the strella which can home in on an airplane from the front. Also so here. Is this eighty three hundred Taking off from iraq going there. They're headed toward took out from baghdad. Headed toward bahrain and a three man crew of was seen firing one of these mad pads and it struck the airplane. There's a picture in our our in our Web page of what. It looked like after that airplane got struck it was struck in the left wing and fortunately it was right after takeoff so the left wing fuel tank was full so there was no fuel air vapor in the tank because if they've been vapor that would have been highly explosive but it was bernie and The missile in addition to punch a big hole in the wing took out the hydraulic system. So now the the crew is flying this airplane with no flight controls. They're doing like what united airlines flight to thirty two did. They're using differential thrust to manage the the the altitude the heading the airspeed. They're using that to fly around and try to come back and land back at back at baghdad and it took about ten minutes for them to get back around now. The flight engineer on this flight was doing a magnificent job because if the left if the source of fuel to the left engine had run dry. They wouldn't have been able to control the airplane anymore. They needed all of their engines for differential thrust. They needed both engines to be able to to operate so that they could maintain directional control. So he's constantly monitoring the state of fuel in the left wing when the state of fuel is leaking out dramatically. And he's using crush meeting to get fuel back to the other engines so that they could continue to power both engines so they brought it in. They made a landing. They didn't incredible job made landing. They were not able to control the airplane. What's it was on the ground than it went for. Like a thousand feet off the runway. But but no one was injured. The airplane was substantially damaged and it eventually was scrapped. So why do i bring this up. Well man pads are available everywhere They ever virtually every country where there's any violence you will find that. There are men pads. If you look on on wikipedia you'll see a list of countries where there is is documented documented. Proof that they have man pads somewhere there and all it takes is one person who's been very briefly trained in how to use it. You turn it on. Turn the machine on and you're aiming at an airplane and squeeze the trigger. That's basically it and so you could be. You could be at risk especially when you fly. Overseas special show fly to third world countries. You could be at risk of a man pad anywhere you fly. So that's something to think about a three pound warhead. Doesn't sound like much but it can do serious damage in its knocked airplanes. Who even back. When i was flying at four as there was a foreign. My squadron got out of this guy by by estrella

Turkey won't step back on S-400s despite US sanctions
"Turkey continues to criticize US sanctions imposed by the Trump administration over Ankara's purchase of a Russian missile defense system. As NPR's Peter Kenyon reports Turkey describes those sanctions has a grave mistake. Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Java solo in a televised interview, responded to the sanctions by saying, quote. This is not in line with international law diplomacy, and it is a politically in legally wrong decision. He says it bought the Russian s 400 missile system after Washington refused to sell a system to Turkey and assertion. U. S officials dispute the Trump administration responded by removing Turkey from the F 35 fighter jet program. Washington worries about sensitive military technology being revealed to Russia. Chava Solo, also said restoring ties with Washington depends on the US accepting Turkish policies in Syria and extraditing a US based cleric. Turkey accuses of backing a 2016 coup attempt.

How the gut protects the brain from infection
"A brains sit cocooned inside a series of protective layers. They called them in injuries. And these together with a structure called the blood brain barrier keep out unwanted bugs nasties that could otherwise prove lethal forest. But how exactly the brains defense systems do. This wasn't known now. A new discovery is added an important piece to the puzzle specialized plasma cells these a blood cells that make antibodies is important potentially harmful bacteria in our intestines and then make their way up to the outer part of them in indies called the juror where they churn out antibodies and keep the brain bug free medical worthy. The thing that really got me interested in thinking about the brain is that there's increasing evidence that the immune system plays a role in a number of brain disorders so things like depression and anxiety and even the progression of neurodegenerative diseases like parkinson's disease as well as that. We know that the immune system is required to defend parts of the body from infection. So this could be important for defense against infections in the brain and in the ninja. So things like meningitis. How did you them. Pursue this to try and work out. How the brain was actually fending off infections. As with many studies in immunology we use mousers as a model and so the first thing that we did was to take meninges and look at them under the microscope and they were plasma cells in the sierra and they were not just got anywhere. They are actually lined up along. The border of large blood vessels that run through the zero. The these bug vessels are called venus. Sinuses the next question. When we find these plasma cells was empty they were producing to all surprise. We found that rather than producing igt. What's normally find in the body. They were actually producing an antibody. That's normally found gut so you've got this interesting observation an- tomic clear in the first instance of blood vessels running through. Jeez they've got cells that make antibody lining up along them. But the antibody they're making is one that you would not normally associate with the bloodstream. It's one that you would find in the testing. Yes so that was surprising. And i guess the next question was well duty cells actually originating the guts or are they influenced by the gut so to answer that we were able to use. Mice have never seen any sort of bug. They have no bacteria or any microbes in their intestine and when we looked at the dura from these animals they were no cells whatsoever but when we added bacteria back into their gut suddenly again the antibody producing cells reappeared in the era and even if we only eat put one type of bacteria into these mice a type of bacteria that couldn't go anywhere other than the gut we still saw the cells reappear in in the dearest that told us that those cells originated in the intestine. Your sort of hypothesis is the bacteria in the intestine. They educate the immune system and immune cells the intestine and what the cells then migrate from the intesting with the knowledge of how to make antibodies against those specific microbes. Up to the brain and take up residence in the meninges around the brain exactly and they specifically take up residence at the border of these d'oro venus sinuses. And i guess then the obvious question will why. Why would that happen. Why is the system being set up and the obvious answer would be. Maybe those cells there to protect The brain from microbes bacteria that originated in the gut into the bloodstream. When they're flowing through those at venus sinuses where blood flow is quite slow. It's an opportunity for the bugs to get out into the brain so to test that what we did was to remove all of the antibody producing cells and then we challenged mice with microbes into their bloodstream. And what we found was the bugs were able to get a cross into the brain as so it told us that really. We found a whole new defense system for the brain. What are you going to do next. We're interested in the signals. That might take the plasma cells from the gut to them. And jeez and then the other thing. I'm really interested in is whether this has implications for how we try and protect people from meningitis at the moment. If we vaccinated against meningitis we give that vaccine into the muscle but our study would suggest that actually if you want to make cells to defend the brain the route that you should give that vaccine is actually via the gut and so that's something that we look into the bodies a clever all thing. Isn't it minute klatt worthy there. She's basically comes university. Study describing that work has just come out in the journal nature.

Am I Supporting My Immune System?
"Nicole. Thank you so much for being here with us today. Thanks for having me. I'm so excited to be here I. Love This podcast. We love having you on and this is a topic that I think is at the forefront of people's minds, and that is our immune system. So can you give us a little bit of information about why supporting our immune system is so important? I couldn't be more to end thank heavens. Many incredible tools with Tara to help us do that. But. Why it's so important support our immune system is I learn and like many of you that are listening I'm sure you learned a lot it convention and I learned a lot about our immune system. I love how they dove into it and really expanded on it in ensure in simple terms, it's important to support our body's immune system because it's our body's natural defense system. Dr Oskoui four talked about if we didn't have an immune system, you know our bodies, we would only live for a short amount of time because they fight off you know all these dangerous things that are body really needs Armenian system to to protect us against. So I thought that was really interesting and We certainly need an immune system to not only survive but to thrive. You know in our lives. So it's really apparent how important having a high functioning optimal immune system can be to keep us are healthiest are healthy selves. You're absolutely right. It's one of those things we take for granted a little bit until we don't have it anymore. That's right. That's absolutely correct. So what are some things I can do every day? What are some lifestyle changes I can make to help support my immune system I mean if you all have been around. Or just new Tara we love a routine. We love and have learned that you know less is more in our essential oils, and in the products we use it's a long steady strain versus these massive doses and that's what I love about setting up a routine and what can I do? What lifestyle changes can I make to help support my immune system again can be really simple. I keep referring back a doctor Oh doctor ask because he says, you know wash your hands being aware is another great way to support your immune system. Going back to drinking a lot of water, you know it's recommended to drink half are bought half our bodies ideal weight in ounces every day, and you know what will boost your immune system even more is go ahead and add one to two to if you're drinking a large amount of water like myself every day a few drops of citrus essential oils, Mike favorite is. Tangerine. But this just helps our bodies flush those toxins naturally in allows our immune system to function you know at a high level, the function properly, another really great way to boost your immune system is movement exercise. It helps our bodies start to produce those happy hormones in that. Again, we everything is always so interesting how it goes back to to stress our emotions and how. Well, our body is feeling how well it is functioning really has a direct link to how how we're feeling emotionally. So when we're able to move our bodies around and get those happy hormones up, we feel better we feel better immune system can can be supported better sleep sleep sleep sleep our sleep cycle can wreck havoc. I want you to think back to a time Maybe you're cyclical like a lot of us this time of year that time of year you're like, this is a major I wanNA talk to accountants. You know we get the tax season and that's a great time to offer some immune support to them because they're sleeping. Poorly, their diet is wonky because they're working such long hours in this really really affects immune system if you've ever. Pushed really hard for something or had high stress. You'll find your body often after there will be a little bit of a letdown. It's really interesting again, if you'll notice what's your body's trying to tell you? So sleep wash your hands plenty of water diet. It said that anywhere between sixty to eighty percent of our immune system is found in our gut how healthy is your diet? What are we doing to improve our gut helped? Those are all little lifestyle changes that we can make. That really helps support healthy immune system.

Turkey reconverts Istanbul's Hagia Sophia museum into a mosque
"Eight acres court is expected to announce today that the conversion of Istanbul's world-famous argue severe into a museum almost ninety years ago, it was awful. The decision would pave the way for the building's Restoration Mosque and we'll represent a victory of sorts for president recipe type one, but it may cause anger elsewhere, including in the Kremlin and UNESCO HQ, joining us on the line now is Hannah Lucinda Smith is stumble correspondent of the. Times Hello Hannigan off new thanks for being with US I. Guess this was what we had perhaps predicted nevertheless. Oh, that's not gonNA. Stop a number of people being pretty disappointed with the outcome. Yeah well. Absolutely I mean affair is such a symbol, not just in Turkey or not just in the region in the whole world at points it was built in the sixth century. It was the biggest cathedral in the world. It was the seat of eastern Crescenzi for more than a Millennium and then it's really been kind of the symbol of the struggle for the soul of Istanbul. I guess when the autumns took control of the city in fourteen, fifty three, they converse into a mosque, and then when Kemal Ataturk the first president of the secular republic. Took over the country he then. Signed an order basically deconsecrated intending into museum in nine, hundred thirty four, and that's the status it. It's hard since then, but it is such a powerful symbol for Muslims. Christians and also for the Turks who are really bondage this idea of a second second they sit. It's kind of one of the ultimate symbols of their secular country. Just when you're out, and about as it sounds like you are indeed right now, is this one of these things where people are talking about it, and it's upsetting people, or is it one of these strange things? Actually seems to be much more stark much more controversial through the prism of I'm in London or etc. People looking on from Moscow which maybe we'll come to in a in a minute it does it excise people out in about. March she stood in the courtyard. Safia right now. It is a few Tori style. It's actually quite quite mean that's mostly because of the current virus pandemic coming normally at this time of year that would be crowded with tourists actually took his most visited tourist attraction, but I think the interesting thing. Is that inside Turkey this debate? That's not new. It's been going on for a couple. Couple, of decades, it's a question that sort of comes around quite six. In fact, you know I've I've been in Turkey for seven years. Now is the ton. This is come up in my time here and so there is this of feeling of fatigue I you know this is just the same policy policy again but I think it's undeniable, the for certain positive the Paul is. Very, much behind prison on the move is part of the society would be seen as. A big victory pick symbolic victory, but I think in terms of the kind of. The opposition to it. A lot of that comes from outside country. As you mentioned that the star obviously the Greek government's in holy. They still see Istanbul Constantinople. This is the as the center of Greek Orthodox also the Russian Orthodox Patriarch earlier this week, voiced his objection and of course UNESCO Ted. This is a world heritage sites listed by UNESCO. That's partly because of the The mosaics that were uncovered once this was ten years. In the nineteen th that is. On. The big questions is of course. If this is ten back into a mosque, what will happen to those mosaics depict Christ pizza version married picked him of the apostles. You know seen in, Islam, FIT Is is not allowed inside mosques. So this is the kind of places where the real objections are coming from, but it's quite interesting I'm you know it's? Really doesn't feel like much. Is happening at the moment here high? Sophie, let's see. We got the announcement in June a couple of hours. That's what we're expecting so. Possibly something will happen after that, but it's kind of. Yeah. It's still the same very peaceful, very unique. Is indeed sort of an eerie call just on some of those other international stakeholders. And he'll be watching on. We mentioned already you mentioned the Russian. Orthodox Patriarch of course. What about the relationship mean does this tell us anything about the relationship between assemble in Moscow more broadly, maybe more politically because there's various other sort of proxy disagreements agreements. There's other places Libya that seemed to sort of muddy. The waters is this. Does this need to be to be viewed in that context in your view? Show, I think the relationship with Russia is actually the one thing that might give president or pause for thought on this now what we see as I said before the Greeks are. Very opposed to this the US. State Department might POMPEII stems as well, but you know that's kind of old hat fred when he doesn't really care about. Stoking rows with Greece and with the US.

Obstruction of Justice charged with murder in the nineteen eighty seven killings of a young Canadian couple is facing trial now in our state this week. William Talbot's attorneys, though, say the discovery of his DNA at the crime scene does not make him the killer. A pair of defense companies hope to merge. But it appears the president is wary of such a scenario covering the proposed merger between Raytheon and United Technologies as Washington Post defense industry reporter Aaron Greg, and he spoke with komo's Taylor van Cise put this proposal in perspective. How much money do these two companies bring in put together the combined companies about seventy four billion dollars a year? That would make it the second largest US aerospace company behind Boeing's huge for both companies and what sort of pressure would that put Boeing under are they competing for the same sort of contracts? Exactly. So United Technologies is really one of the last great US conglomerates, they sort of have the foothold in every corner of of industry. It'll be spinning out company that make air conditioners and escalators with the company, we merging with Raytheon is focused on the airspace sector. But they basically made every possible that you might see when you stepped onto an airplane like seven thirty seven or with a military pilot was fly a plane like the f thirty five United Technologies. Pratt and Whitney. Subsidiary makes the engine is the girl. And, you know, Raytheon one of the top five largest defense contractors before the marcher. They were already massive company. Now they're going to be really, truly just a stratospheric defense and commercial aviation. And that's, that's the company Raytheon that's making things like cruise missiles and Amraam missiles. Right. That's right. Their best known for missiles, big part of their opportunities that are bidding on different aspects of the US nuclear triad building missiles that we would potentially theoretically use nuclear war. They also want to be building missile defense systems that would stop those missiles launched at the US they're involved in a lot of classified work. A lot of really bad defense work. He's a merger like this common in that industry even seeing more of more and more of them over the past several years. Basically, what's happening is that under the sequestration years? Defense budgets were down during his presidency. You had big companies like this joining four just to, you know, basically, to keep investors expectations up, despite there being less money to go around now, we're still seeing those occur. We just haven't seen one this day really that I can ever remember. I mean, this is gonna create a company that is just a historic size in the defense industry really only Boeing and Lockheed Martin will pretty much be able to compete with it for size now. You report that the president is pretty uneasy with this is the Pentagon, or the Trump administration in general going to stay hands off with this merger. I think it would be highly unlikely that they would block the merger entirely because the fact is despite what the president said, on CNBC these companies do not compete Raytheon. They like to sell things directly to the government. They make large missile systems and radars for the government, so directly. United technologies. They like to sell components to other companies, such as building an engine that goes in another in a fighter jet, there's really not any, any overlap there, what we might see is that the department of Justice Justice or the Pentagon would require some sort of carve out saying, basically, you can do this massive tie out, but you have to sell off, just like this tiny portion of your business where we do have concerns. But I think it'll be highly unlikely that they blocked the deal entirely despite what the president say, Aaron Greg with us on KOMO news defense industry reporter for the Washington Post, and you can read his coverage online at Washington, Post dot com.

"Repeat the US Pacific Command has detected a missile threat to Hawaii on Vissel may impact on land or sea within minutes. This is not a drill. The if you were doors, stay indoors. The you were outdoors, seek immediate shelter in a building. That was a terrifying US pacific command alert issued on Saturday, January thirteen th the twenty 18 in Hawaii for 38 minutes. People thought there was a bomb headed their way. Welcome to the gut science podcast. I'm your host Colleen, McDonald's. Today, we're talking about the importance of things working, whether it's our missile defense system or database system. A few weekends ago, one point five million Hawaiians plus thousands of tourists were sent into a panic when a text alert announced that a ballistic missile was headed to the islands. Thankfully, it was a false alarm and blamed on human error. This scary incident had many of us reflecting on how we be protected if such a threat were actually real. After all the US has spent hundreds of billions of dollars on missile defence. Shouldn't it be possible to intercept and shoot down missiles before they reach Hawaii or any other American target? My colleague Dr Laura, Greg o is a real life rocket scientists and senior scientist with our global security program here at the Union of Concerned Scientists. She's an expert on Outer Space security, including missile defence. She spent many years researching and writing about the capabilities of the ground-based midcourse defence system which is supposed to be able to shoot down fast moving missiles carrying nuclear weapons. Since. The benefit of having a missile defence expert as a coworker, as you get the truth about what our systems are capable of the drawback of having a missile defence expert as a coworker, Is that you get the truth about what our systems are capable of. Laura joined the gut Science team to crush all of our delusions about our own safety, and also to chat about why having a flawed system is worse than no system at all. Why diplomacy is still the only answer to nuclear sabre-rattling and why? If you happen to encounter a bear, It's always better not to poke it. So Laura, thanks for joining us today on the gut science podcast. I'm so glad to be here Cali. Excellent. So I wanna start right off the bat with North Korea because that's what's in the news These days They are ramping up their missile launching capabilities substantially. And this has put a lot of focus on our ground-based midcourse defence system. Can you give us just a brief lay of the land to start in terms of the different types of defence systems we have? So the United States is in a very fortunate geographical position. We have vast oceans to the east and west and friendly neighbors to the north and south. So we don't spend a lot of time thinking about short range missile threats because we don't really We have a pretty friendly neighborhood. So when you're thinking about nuclear and ballistic missiles, the you know a targeted against the United States itself. We're thinking about into. To mental ballistic missiles, meaning they have to go ten thousand kilometers at least to get here. So those are the highest fast is far this missiles. So the ground-based midcourse missile defence The GMD system that you mention is the sole system that's meant to defend against threats like that. So that consists of 44 interceptors All but four of those are in Alaska that the rest of them are in California at Vandenberg Air Force Base near Santa Barbara in those are meant to knocked down a missile. That's headed our way. So there are other missile defense systems at you might have heard about in those are meant to defend against shorter-range missile threats. So things that don't go quite that far. And their use they call them theater missile defenses or regional. So we have the Aegis ship-based missile defense system. So those are based on navy ships that move to the area of concern. We've got those in Europe who have those in East Asia for example. And then there is the Thad missile defense system. That's shorter range than Aegis mostly in. That's that's an army system negative airlifted over to wherever you're worried about in the put a down. They put on radars Inge interceptors a week That was recently deployed to South Korea. In the south end. There's one wom And then there are, you know, even shorter means in that Patriot missile defense systems, which people of probably even hearing about for a long time, Those are important during the Gulf War. So those are for shorter-range missiles. So there's a range of them, but they do different things. So you can think missiles that don't go as far Also don't need to go as fast. So that's us. Easier problem to solve. By the time you get to intercontinental ballistic missiles circling really fast. So it's a super challenging problem. Described meet what mid-course defense system is shirt. Okay. So an ICBM intercontinental ballistic missile looks like a big space launch vehicle basically if you ever watch to launch on TV, see swimming in a. Launch patterns, Paul, these big flames and powerful engines was in need to get this going really fast to get to go as far as it needs to go. So as his big powerful launch, that's called the boost phase. So that time of active launching lasts Lake at most around five minutes. So that gets the missile going really fast. And then the were ballistic just basically means it's in freefall once you get it going fast, It's not guided. It's not like an airplane that uses aerodynamics to make changes are to fight. It's simply just going with the speed got revved up to a so that cruising part that ballistic flight, That's the mid course. So most of that travel to go from, for example, North Korea to the United States or somewhere Farley that Muster that happens up in the vacuum of space. You well above the International Space Station razor up where the satellites are. And so that's the vacuum of space and and then it's been a very Shaw. Time coming back through the atmosphere on the other, And so he served more like a minute or two some most of the time it's traveling his in the mid course. So that's where our GMD is trying to knock this thing out or exploded, Right? So it's less the longest so that it seems like as the first place you start trying to defend the tricky thing about mid course And this is at is tricky. This is a show-stopper Is that you're traveling in the vacuum of space. And so there's no atmosphere to slow light objects down more than heavy objects, you know, like if you're standing at the top of the building and you dropped an anvil and a feather, everyone's intuition tells them which one's going to land first because there's more resistance for mass. Right? So it doesn't work the same way. Um, and so to distinguish alight balloon that looks a lot like a warhead from the actual were head. You can't use the atmosphere slow now to tell you which one is which you need other. Clues You need sensors like radars and infrared sensors to try to gather you're clues and figure out which is which. And that's actually a very difficult basic physics problem. And the adversary has lots of tools at his or her disposal to try to trick. You recall those countermeasures. So these decoys at imagine like fake warheads If you can't distinguish between the light fake warhead And the real were had You're going to have to target both of them. And if you're light fake warhead the you know they don't cost too much to put on top of your rocket because of light. You foot thousands of them and make it really hard for the defence to find out which is the right target. That's an issue that's been well-known for decades and really has not been solved in any substantial way. So this excessive amid persistent really rides on the fact that you just hope that your adversary can't do it. You hope you adversary hasn't figured out how to make these balloons or good countermeasures, or you know little heaters or coolers or things to change the observed. Trivia objects, You just have to hope that they haven't done a good job of that. So what do you say to the person who says, Well, just shoot a dozen? Interceptors interceptors yes suggest you two dozen interceptors and yet all of the decoys and your real one Well, sure. I would say that that the GM de interceptors are leg. I think they're like seventy million dollars each, and you are always going to be on the wrong side of that cost curve, And that is in the your over and over from the Pentagon We are in the wrong side of the cost curve with this system. They acknowledged that that's a problem. It's clearly understood by lots of people in the Pentagon that You're not gonna get out ahead of these decoys by building were interceptors. It's simply too difficult and too expensive to make a successful system either going to have to hope the driver's series really clumsy and hasn't figured out how to do this or that you have figured out some clever way with your sensors to to defeat this countermeasure issue in it's really difficult to do the intelligence communities assessment almost twenty years ago was that any country that has the technical capability to build an intercontinental ballistic missile has a technical capability to build these kinds of counter-measures which should fool a missile system. So we keep. Pouring money into it? Yeah. What do we do with if we know it doesn't work And it's there, What do we do if it stopped funding it and what are the alternatives? So you know that was the bat, I think the Bush administration, the judge W Bush administration man is that if we just get in the ground, it's going to be hard to rethink it. And so people only want to just go ahead and that was in the early 2000s The approach was We have no time to do all this engineering and to do more testing research in developing. We need to get it in the ground as soon as possible because this threat is happening and right. And that's the point in time where the administration decided that they didn't need to go through the rigorous checks and balances Rove of a scientific process. Right. So normally, so over decades of building military systems, Congress in the Pentagon They came up with a system is sounds so boring, right? Chairment or research and development, But basically a system colloquially called fly before you by which is basically how do you build some things so that it works like you think it should it solves the problem you want it to, and then it does it in a cost-effective way. So it's just like basics like, This is the problem we have, Here's how we're gonna solve it. Here's research and development. Here's that early staff. You get out the kinks. When you think that you've solve those problems, You can try it out in realistic conditions to make sure you didn't miss anything like it doesn't work in the rain or why we haven't solved the countermeasures problem, or you know it shakes too much and can't count on the guidance because it vibrates too much. You get all of those Keno work, all others kings out, And then you buy it and then you put it into the field. Right. That's the sort of the way you would build something that you wanted to work well, the So but it was essentially like we can't wait for that process. We're gonna take it out of that system that basically almost every other thing in the Pentagon has to go. Through in just build this missile defense system, You know as fast possible. So essentially took the technology that existed, stopped first engineering cycles in just built stuff and put it into the ground as of fast and furious. And that's what we have with the G MD, the ground-based midcourse defence. So what we end up having is a bunch of stuff that as you tested it, It's Aiguo. Okay, boy, We missed something here. Um, you know, some, some of the tests were just basic quality control problems. And you know wire had not apparently been attached well-enough But then there are other problems at were design problems that they needed to figure out that I understand how you would be confused by the fact that we've built a system, spent tens of billions of dollars. It exists. And yet essentially It's like a prototype system. It's it never went through the rigors engineering. And that's reflected basically in its Test record, which is really pour it. Also misleading the public Yuccas that exists and many, many people would assume that it works or works well enough. And you get conflicting information from now from the Trump administration about its success rate. Right. So exists, Right. So you think he should work. We spent lots of money and we are continuing to in refusing to spend many more billions of dollars on it. So again, you think should work not only the Trump administration, But stretching back through the Obama administration in the George W Bush administration, government, military administration officials seeing this system protects us. Well, right now, really against all evidence. Third, Ben, No tests that demonstrated that it worked, Right? So you sort of taking it on faith and maybe you know, maybe that was satisfying. And in some sense to some people at that point. But as the North Korean missile. Program advanced I think more people are turning a critical eye and saying, Okay, So uh, let's see, how can you back that up with real evidence? Does system really work like that in you that you look at the test program and where the beautiful things we have in in this country is transparency about alive and is very difficult to hide of missile defense test their big lowered hard to hide type of thing. He'll big rocket launches, so you know, when they happen And you know whether they worked or not. So we know a lot about the system and and how it's performed, and that you know they're doesn't square with the claims that it protects American people right now.
