For example, the spacecraft that transport Perseverance from Earth to Mars, he said. The sign that we did for Mars Pathfinder in the nineties that mission Miguel's first on Mars landed on the Red Planet on July 4th 1997. With the rover companion named Sojourner. The small £25.6 Wheeled rover on Lee, designed to last a week would end up spending 83 days, capturing 550 pictures and taking atmospheric measurements from the planet's surface, He says During.

Casely on the surface of Mars Rover left Earth last July and traveled almost 300 million miles across face to its destination, the Red Planet and on Today's episode you're gonna hear from some of the Latinos and Latinas whose own perseverance made this mission possible people like the Ana Trujillo the night before the hallways were empty. And I am sitting up thinking about, you know, having the biggest night of my career on the next morning on getting ready for it. The steam that Edmund is I woke up super early because I could not sleep at all in the anticipation of landing on Mars. I was one of the people who was actually supporting remotely from home. So because of the pandemic Ah, large majority of our team is actually working remotely. And Alejandro Meagles and Martine, who went viral after his daughter shared with the World Alejandro's reaction to the moment when perseverance landed on Mars. Being that at home. My wife next to me, I was more free to actually be part of the experience than in the previous four landings that I was in the control room in the more ridges settings because you're doing a job on, so I think that's also.

Autonomous helicopter joins its rover buddy for Mars 2020 mission

"A mars helicopter so this thing it's a very small quad copter think of it is <hes> what else toy drones you could buy from amazon for kinda cheap but this isn't very cheap and it's not very small. It's about the size is of a shoebox with the rotors about <hes> about four feet wide and this helicopter is not mission critical go so they just attached this to the belly of the mars rover in the high one cleanroom at jet propulsion propulsion laboratory in pasadena california sing is solar powered and it has the mars helicopter delivery system which which will deliver well deliver the the helicopter to mars and also that's what helps it launch and <hes> <hes> shields it from debris during entry descent and landing the helicopter will remain encapsulated in the mars helicopter the delivery system after landing deploying to the surface once a suitable area conduct test flights is found in the crater where they land now. It's a very high risk high reward technology demonstration. If this helicopter encounters difficulties difficulties the science of the mars twenty twenty mission won't be impacted but if the helicopter is successful and if it takes flight is designed the future missions to mars could possibly have other quad captors other drone copters. Yes that could deploy when they get there so <hes> spokesman from g._p._l. Said our job is to. I prefer to prove that autonomous controlled flight can be executed in the extremely thin martian atmosphere since our helicopter is designed as a flight test of experimental technology carries no science instruments but if he proved powered flight on mars can work we look forward to the day when mars helicopters aw can play an important role in future explorations of the red planet. Mars is big world and there's lots of geography on mars. There's cliffs caves in deep craters that a rover just can't get too and that's why something like a helicopter like a quad copter is very important to the future missions on the red planet. They can act as scouts. They can film inside caves. They can film inside craters. That could take pictures. They could take amazing photos of things that we would never be able to see if we were just relying on rovers and nasa intends to establish a sustained human presence on the moon through there nasa artemis miss lunar exploration missions and they could possibly use <hes> quite captors on the moon as well so <hes> jim breitenstein nastase administrator said the rate brothers flew the first plane kitty hawk north carolina but they built it in dayton and the mars helicopter destined to be the first aircraft to fly in another world was built in pasadena california join now to the twenty twenty rover. It is yet another example of how nasa artemis generation is expanding humanities reach in our solar system with this joining of two grace spacecraft. I can say definitively. I believe that all the pieces are in place for historic mission of exploration together mars twenty twenty and the mars helicopter will help define the future of science and exploration of the red planet for decades to come mars twenty twenty with the helicopter on board will launch an a u._c._l._a. Atlas five rocket in in july of twenty twenty from space launch complex forty one it cape canaveral air force station in florida in it'll land on mars <music> on february eighteenth of twenty twenty one the rover will be the first space craft and the history of planetary exploration with the ability to accurately re target its point if touchdown during the landing sequence and this new helicopter the mars twenty twenty helicopter it could possibly return so amazing results showing that we can fly a helicopter on another world and if that's the case.

"And Mars twenty twenty which is a NASA mission in on this role, but there's actually a helicopter which is okay. Think about that for a second. There's a helicopter that's going to be on Mars, not a spacecraft, but in actual helicopter. It's like four pounds, it's something can hold your hands at something that you can, you know, a child could pick it up. But they're sending a freaking helicopter. Tomorrow's how insane is that? In twenty twenty four for female will be setting her foot on the surface of the moon. Follow by the next man on the moon. So this is kind of the next stage. Right. So twenty twenty they're sending a, a Mars Rover, which will be looking for signs of ancient life. It will be the first space craft in history to collect samples of the Martian surface, and they'll be putting them in tubes for later, it'll be they'll have all these things in tubes for later, the cashing them in, then they could be returned to earth in a future mission, which to me. Okay. So if, if you think about that, I, I gained Mars millions of miles away. We go there every once in a while with robots. Now we have a few robots. That's the only only thing that's on Mars. Right now, the only I guess being that's on Mars right now. Our Rovers human-made Rovers that are on Mars that we know of but this Rover this twenty twenty Rover could possibly find signs of ancient life on Mars. So when Mars twenty twenty gets done with their mission. Well, when they do the mission, I should say they're going to be looking for water. They're going to be looking for oxygen the going to be. Looking for ways for humans to survive in space? And the real situation here is okay. So this March twenty twenty Rover. It's kind of setting the standard for okay? What are humans going to be able to do on Mars? What are we going to find out? You need a steady supply of oxygen when you get there, you can't really transport a bunch of oxygen from earth. The Mars because it costs so much. It's huge. It's a huge tank and the tank like take of oxygen dozen last a really long time. So there's an experiment, the Mars oxygen in situ resource utilization experiment. The moxie. Okay. So say that really fast, it's exploring space, saving alternative that converts carbon dioxide, which is about ninety six percent of the Mars atmosphere, changes that into oxygen in moxie is a small scale demonstration, but it's a technology demonstration. Right. So you get this thing up there. He gets us device up there and because it can hopefully let's hope this works. In that a changes the atmosphere into oxygen while net the whole atmosphere. But it changes some bit at oxygen, which we can then store in tanks on the Martian surface for our human Landers. So. The good thing is. It's a small test in, then we can ramp it up. Right. So you gotta do these small tests like everything it's like software engineering. You do these small tests. Okay. What are the bugs? Let's fix the bugs. Let's figure out if this thing actually works or not, the, the code compiles. And if the code compiles, cool, it works. So let's make something better. So that's what this thing is going to be the moxie experiment is going to Mars oxygen in situ resource. Utilization experiment. Who that's a long? One Ness, always has a thing for that, right? There is make the longest names. So. Basically, once we get moxie all up and running in the next generation, and the next generation moxie, then we'll have oxygen readily available on the Martian surface for our astronauts in Mars. Twenty twenty also has something. For water on Mars. So they have the radar imager for marts subsurface experiment. The rim facts, the radar imager for Mars subsurface experiment. So many long names. So March twenty twenty scientists will use its high resolution images to look at berry geology, like Incheon lake beds, but the radar could be used to find stores of underground ice that astronauts could access to provide drinking water. So. Basically, it's radar that looks under the ground. It looks for ice and astronauts will have to go to this ice, chip it out. How were they doing they're gonna use heat or if they're just going to chip out like like the olden days, you know, with a pick axe or whatever to get that ice that water ice? Bring it back to camp, drinkable water. They have to of course, purify, it do all that put it through its tests. But once they get there, they'll be all good. And also spacesuits. Mars is full of dust, and radiation, right dust is everywhere. It sticks to solar panels. The planet doesn't actually really have a magnetic field anymore, so sun's radiation. It beats down on the Mars surface. And so there's another experiment, the Sherlock, which is the scanning habitable environments with. Raymond and luminescence for organics and chemicals. That is a long Sherlock. It's a piece of an astronaut's helmet and four kinds of fabric that are mounted on a calibration target for this instrument. Scientists will you Sherlock as well as a camera that photographs visible light. The study how the materials degrade in ultra violet radiation. So this is the first time that spacesuit material will be sent to Mars for testing in old provide really vital information for future, astronauts that, go to the red planet. So there's one more thing what else to humans need when they go to Mars. They need a place to stay. They'll need a place to live. They'll need a place to work. Because when you go to Mars, you're on your own man. It's like living on a desert up there, but there's no way to call.

"Rover is traveling around Mars right now. It's getting data. It's doing sampling in, it's doing all of this, in gale crater that Exo Mars. We'll be landing in axiom. Plenum in the Klay deposits are dated at four point one billion years old and curiosity is in the crater where it's only three point six billion years old. So excellent Mars is going to be in a place. It's much older than our curiosity is right now. So therefore it can search for life from past marks from a long time ago. You know. Another almost another billion years older than what curiosity is check in every now and that's the epoch from when Mars is surface was plentiful with liquid water systems. Exit Mars missions will be capable of securing many firsts the oldest site investigated on Mars, the first exploration of the Martian subsurface, the most accurate, geological inorganic composition determination, so far, and the best chance, yet to make bio signature detections on another planet, and the other thing than ex Amar's has going for it is that it has the longer drill. Then March twenty twenty Rover so it can dig down deeper and also get more samples from a longer period of time on the surface of Mars. So March twenty twenty is going to be a very important Rover. Exo Mars is also going to be a very impor-. Portent rover. We're not gonna have a battle about, which one is going to be more important because they're posted both important in their own specific ways. X Omar's, they want to bring stuff back to earth. So scientists on our planet here can actually do science with very, very complicated and technical specifications, on bars. You only have a certain amount of room to have scientific instrumentation and once it's there, that's all you have. And it could not, you know, it might not be the most up to date science stuff, because they build these things years in years in years before the launch, and this technology might be a little bit outdated. By the time the Mars Rover gets the cash of samples back to earth. So it's gonna come back and twenty twenty eight and by twenty twenty eight maybe technology will catch up. Maybe technology will move forward so much that the samples that we. Back, we may be able to find things that we weren't able to find when XL Mars is doing it science up there.

Three landers from three nations head to Mars in 2020

"In twenty twenty three Rovers one from the US want from Europe and one from China will leave earth and depart for the red planet of Mars to look for past in present life. And these Rovers are just going to go to Mars. They have in their mission directorate to bring back samples from the red planet to earth, which is going to be one of the most influential. Botches in landings in science experiments of human history. Parts of Mars directly from the regular of Mars will be returned to the planet earth. So scientists on earth with really sophisticated instruments can study, what's in the ground on Mars. So the Rovers will be sent up in twenty twenty in the land, though do science, and the cash, the, the samples for a return mission for Mars and are from Mars and the return to earth in twenty twenty eight if America in Europe come together and make the mission as success, but a project scientists on the east Rover Exo Mars that will land in twenty twenty one along with the American Chinese Rovers might be worth reconsidering, which samples would actually be the. The best valuable to send back to the scientists waiting on earth. And the scientists said Mars twenty twenty will acquire samples from the surface, where I n ising radiation is likely to have damaged any organic molecules, it is. Excellent Mars with its two meter depth drill in advance organics detection, instrumentation MoMA that has the best chance to make an import discovery regarding the possibility. The Mars may have harbored life in its distant past, if this proves to be the case, perhaps, we may need to rethink where they, we should not think of bringing back. Well selected subsurface samples rather than those collected by Mars twenty twenty in the bars twenty twenty Rover which is a NASA Rover. It has the ability to cash the samples that against, but Exo Mars does not have that capability for a return mission leader on and he goes on to say that requires a complicated. Yup. That weighs allot it would have been impossible to combine our present very capable payload with a sample caching system on the same Rover. In fact, Nasr's twenty twenty Rover his Pete a dear price to include the caching system, and that's compared to curiosities analytical firepower. So what they gave up an analytics and studying the actual surface of the planet Mars. They gained a caching system. So instead of doing the science on Mars itself, what they're doing is putting it away for a little while and they're using that space to harbor though samples, then they're going to return them to earth on the March twenty twenty Rover. And then George Vago goes on to say the point I am trying to make is that bringing back the right samples will make all the difference in this regard, Exo Mars will be super important are the samples collected at depth more interesting and better preserved. We think probably yes, in once we will have investigated this, perhaps it will be time to rethink what samples to bring back to

"twenty twenty rover" Discussed on SPACE NEWS POD

"Hello. And welcome back to the space news pod. A daily podcast about space science and tech, I'm your host will Walden and in twenty twenty three Rovers one from the US want from Europe and one from China will leave earth and depart for the red planet of Mars to look for past in present life. And these Rovers are just going to go to Mars. They have in their mission directorate to bring back samples from the red planet to earth, which is going to be one of the most influential. Botches in landings in science experiments of human history. Parts of Mars directly from the regular of Mars will be returned to the planet earth. So scientists on earth with really sophisticated instruments can study, what's in the ground on Mars. So the Rovers will be sent up in twenty twenty in the land, though do science, and the cash, the, the samples for a return mission for Mars and are from Mars and the return to earth in twenty twenty eight if America in Europe come together and make the mission as success, but a project scientists on the east Rover Exo Mars that will land in twenty twenty one along with the American Chinese Rovers might be worth reconsidering, which samples would actually be the. The best valuable to send back to the scientists waiting on earth. And the scientists said Mars twenty twenty will acquire samples from the surface, where I n ising radiation is likely to have damaged any organic molecules, it is. Excellent Mars with its two meter depth drill in advance organics detection, instrumentation MoMA that has the best chance to make an import discovery regarding the possibility. The Mars may have harbored life in its distant past, if this proves to be the case, perhaps, we may need to rethink where they, we should not think of bringing back. Well selected subsurface samples rather than those collected by Mars twenty twenty in the bars twenty twenty Rover which is a NASA Rover. It has the ability to cash the samples that against, but Exo Mars does not have that capability for a return mission leader on and he goes on to say that requires a complicated. Yup. That weighs allot it would have been impossible to combine our present very capable payload with a sample caching system on the same Rover. In fact, Nasr's twenty twenty Rover his Pete a dear price to include the caching system, and that's compared to curiosities analytical firepower. So what they gave up an analytics and studying the actual surface of the planet Mars. They gained a caching system. So instead of doing the science on Mars itself, what they're doing is putting it away for a little while and they're using that space to harbor though samples, then they're going to return them to earth on the March twenty twenty Rover. And then George Vago goes on to say the point I am trying to make is that bringing back the right samples will make all the difference in this regard, Exo Mars will be super important are the samples collected at depth more interesting and better preserved. We think probably yes, in once we will have investigated this, perhaps it will be time to rethink what samples to bring back to earth. Or I'm gonna take a quick break. A little pause for the cause stick with me because I have more about exa Mars in March twenty twenty right after this. Hi everyone. I wanna let you know, about inker doubt FM as we're I host my podcast in,.

Welcome to brainstorm a production of iheartradio. Hey brain stuff, learn vocal Bon here ever since Neil Armstrong. I set foot on the moon. Scientists have been toying with the idea of forming potential colonies, there and more recently on Mars to, but extreme fluctuating temperatures cosmic radiation, and micrometeorites showers colloquially known as space dust pose challenges to human excavation of both the moon and Mars, however, Astro biologists are in the process of exploring nifty geological structures the conservative natural shelter from these harsh elements lava tubes. So what are lava tubes? We spoke by Email with doctor Ricardo puzzle Abban of the department of geosciences at the university of pet ova. He's been at the forefront of European research on lava tubes. He explained lava tubes are caves that are carved by flowing lava, that eventually drained out leaving a subsurface void, although there are different types of lava tube formations, these caves often form out of a type of fluid basaltic lava that flows down a slope, like. The side of a volcano as the outermost portion of the hot lava flow comes in contact with the cold air, it cools rapidly forming a hardened crest, but liquid lava continues to flow like water in channel underneath this newly hardened surface. At some point that liquid lava runs out, and cools underneath the surface forming a curvy tube shaped structure, and thus Alava tube is born geologist. No lava tubes from volcanic areas in Hawaii, or Iceland, but they've also become a hot, commodity within the Astro biology community due to high resolution images, indicating that lava tubes may exist on the moon and Mars as well. Many sites thought to be lava tubes are detected by the presence of these curvy channels and more recently, the SETI institute announced the discovery of possible skylights or lava tube openings in a crater near the North Pole of moon using images obtained from Nasr's lunar reconnaissance orbiter, but lava tubes are tricky business. Scientific technology is still playing catch up and identifying these underground habitats, we also. Spoke by Email with Leonardo career of the remote sensing laboratory at the university of Trento. He said the main difficulty comes from the fact that lava tubes are centrally subsurface structures. Very few instruments are capable of performing direct measurements of underground structures. But careers team is working to modernize the technology and bus aid future human settlement of these lunar caves the technology involves using radar, which can detect lava tubes from orbit based on their unique electromagnetic signatures, basically, they can pro below the surface of the moon using low frequency electromagnetic waves, and then measure the reflected waves that come back to them. Those reflections offer insight into a lava tubes characteristics, like its shape size and composition. But one thing is clear lava tubes on the moon and Mars are invaluable is natural potential habitats, or at the very least could serve as convenient storage units between space missions. Meanwhile, back on earth, scientists are preparing for future missions to the moon and Mars through a little cave, diving the European Space Agency, developed a program called Penn Jia. The prepares European astronauts to explore other planets one of its projects concerns, a lava tube in Spain called corona that's eight kilometers long, or about five miles the team has undertaken advanced mapping of the tube to create three D model. That's attract down to the millimetre. They've also been testing out new robots or Rovers to identify how best to navigate these tubes. Developing a greater understanding of the challenges associated with incursions into lava tubes on other planets in the process. Other researchers have also taken an interest in exploring the microbiology of lava tubes by focusing their efforts on the lava beds, national monument in California, this project funded by the Canadian space agency is looking to explore lava tubes habitats of biker organisms, which may leave traces behind through certain minerals, and thus indicate the presence of life once upon a time, which is cool enough. On earth, but would be an amazing find on the moon or Mars. So what's the difference between lava tubes on earth in their lunar, and Martian counterparts? Well, gravity for one, the lower gravity on the moon and Mars seems to impact the size of lava tubes, significantly tubes on Mars can stretch for two hundred and fifty meters in width, or about eight hundred and twenty feet and tubes on the moon can reach a whopping Colombia, or more across that's about two thirds of a mile, the lower gravity. Also stabilizes, the roofs of these tubes and causes fewer collapses, especially on the moon, thereby creating a potentially safer dwelling for human habitation, but otherwise lava tubes on earth are fairly similar in composition and structure to those on the moon and Mars and serve as excellent reference points for researchers. The potential for lunar caves, and possible human settlements has many people excited even the White House is making a bid for moon colonies in the near future, and the possibility of answering whether life has existed or may still flourish in caves on Mars is a tantalizing one for space explorers. But if you're wondering whether or not martians will be found hanging around these lava tubes on the red planet, the answer is likely no, unless you count microbial critters radiation, a dry environment and frigid temperatures make the planet inhospitable to most forms of life while using ground Rovers to access lava tubes on the moon and Mars could be difficult due to surface conditions other devices are being developed to aid these explorations including climbing, and hopping pit bots and flying helicopter, like vehicles likes of which may appear Nasr's Mars twenty twenty Rover mission.

"I think they're already is again about this this particular cut. Yeah. It's it's it's one of the decayed Broussard priorities of the scientific community. It's a it's an important project. The administration doesn't wanna fund I think I think that the administration is basically saying you need to you need to get the James Webb. We're not gonna pay for two of these telescope project simultaneously. So you're just gonna have to delay this until you get the James Webb up, but it is an important instrument, and it's a high scientific priority. And as we saw last year in the end, congress would not. Would not take it, and it's a different congress now, but still congress would not would not accept this. That w I got put back in. So it may yet be saved. But once again, they're trying to kill it. Yeah. So speaking of James Webb and Europe clipper before both see slight increases again despite ongoing issues, but James Webb and the instrumentation changes with the clipper both of those missions are moving forward in this budget. So. There James Webb is just gonna happen. Eventually, I suppose to keep working on it. It also adds funds for the Mars sample return mission. So this is a several part mission where the Mars twenty twenty Rover would gather samples for a future return mission. And that's what this budget funds is that second stage of that were those samples come back to two part thing. It's been spoken about for a long time. And I think it's fantastic that it gets funded in this budget. Yeah. It's a it's a good sign. Yeah. Because March twenty twenty is going to gather the rocks. My neighbors. My neighbor's daughter actually was an intern JPL and worked on that project the sample return. But then you have to somebody get the samples and then launch them back to Mars orbit. And then go from Mars back to earth, which is a lot of steps. But they're continuing to push it. And I like the fact that Mars twenty twenty starting it out like they are they are going to collect samples. Yeah. We talk about moon moon rocks marris samples because all of the instruments. We have. There are great. But they're not the same as instruments. We have back on if we could get some samples, but that requires yes, you gotta pick it up you gonna fire rocket off the surface of Mars back to Mars orbit which we've never done and then back to earth, which we've never done. So it's a lot. It's a lot. But I think it's I think it's exciting. There is no money for the office of stem engagement, Josh again, again, which I find infuriating again. I just. This is one of those things, right? Where we have to remember NASA federal agency and its budget is dictated by politics and politicians, and I just can't stand behind that decision in any way. But moving on before having aneurysm. We need to talk about the LS, which means it's time for the S L S segment space launch system segment explaining geopolitics, mechanical systems, engineering achievements, news and trivia, I think at the song. Oh, man. I mean, it's sort of sat. Okay. I'll do. I'll segma-. That sums it up pretty. Pretty nice. So there's a lot going on here. And I think I've done my best. I did a lot of reading. And I think I've got all the details straight. So the budget makes changes to the SOS roadmaps unnecess- next big rocket. It was it has been designed from the beginning to have multiple blocks. So this was a rocket that was not going to to roll off the assembly line in its final form they were going to be several generations of this rocket each one more capable than the previous one both in terms of payload capability, but also reach as far as how how far we could get that payload away from earth, and these stages are called blocks had blocked one block one b and then block to buck one coming..

"So we know that Mars has an atmosphere it's far thinner than ours. And the thought the theory has been that Sola wind basically shifted away over time mavens findings basically back that up and it's also himself looking at water looking at the the ice caps, but maven has an fuel to last through twenty thirty or so so it is being re purposed in part to become a communications relay for the Morris twenty twenty Rover. So instead of having to talk back to earth direc-. Actually, the Rover can talk to maven which convincing data back faster than the river would be able to able to on its own. So to do this. The team is lowering the orbit of maven around Mars. So right now, it's circling Mars like of five point three times a day. It's going to be able to bump it up to six point eight you'll have better coverage more flyovers to get the data from the Rover, and then handed back off to the deep space network when it's incite so sort of getting ready kinda getting things in place and another step towards having a another Rover on the red planet. I love the idea of as I've said on this show before the idea that we've got a bunch of satellites around Mars now, and we can use them for communication, and this is another great example where this thing was only on a relatively short mission two years, but it's still got fuel to spare for more than a decade. And. And they've done. These aero breaking new verse before in order to sample the atmosphere. So just doing it again changing it to be a little bit better. Located for. Doing a job as a relay satellites such a cool thing to have them be flexible in this way. I would imagine that this is something that was talked about all along as part of shaven. But they don't necessarily talk about that stuff publicly. But I think if you're doing game planning for Mars missions, everybody is talking to everybody else about the hardware. That's going to be there when they're there in order to make their missions work. Well, and this this is a cool. Cool bit teamwork. Yeah. Absolutely. So you mentioned the Arab breaking said they're not using a ton of fuel to do this basically just enough fuel to drop a little bit lower than the drag will pull it into the orbit that they want right? That's gonna take like three hundred sixty orbits or two and a half months to slow is very gradual process. But doing that means that they can basic serve that fuel. So if they need to make judgements down the road to say stay in contact with March twenty twenty then they have the fuel. They can. The thrusters then, but they want to reserve that as long as possible, and they can they can do this. With just physics without atmosphere is providing that force slowing them down instead of them just blasting their thrusters. And it's it's brilliant. Yep. -solutely? So so yes, so maven will press on into service for you know, a least another decade. It sounds like servicing Mars twenty twenty and I would assume future Martian programs. You know, like you said everyone's talking other if they're things further down the road for the out. Maybe this isn't the compensation for that as well. Yeah, looks recycling is what I'm saying. It's really good. It's it's it's very cool to see this the robustness of the spacecraft to that's the other thing that strikes me about all this is that you know, I I realized this is part of the game now. But it's the, oh, well, it's gonna last two years or, you know, fifteen. Like, I love that about it. But they need to make them this robust. And if they get them to to work, right? And there aren't equipment failures. They can last a lot longer than than planned. And that's a that's really awesome. So we have to talk about this. I've really was trying to avoid it because I just want to hit head. But there is something telling about the note that I have in this section of our little document being why was this thing?.

"It turns out is weirder than we suppose, we kind of assumed as we talked about last fortnight that this was kind of like a snowman because it was the it's a contact binary. It's to objects that are attached together sort of gently, and they're stuck together. And we thought its snowman it's too fears and a different angle turns out has made it clear as again, there's so many photos that are lead to come back. They're still streaming back. The streaming back for a couple of years, but we got new angle from after the fly by that makes it very clear that these are actually too much flatter objects than we had supposed stuck together. The way this works is they took the shot looking back. So it's it's a kind of a silhouetted shot, and they found that the stars were reappearing too quickly from what they expected around the object which meant that it was not a spherical as they thought. So. There's a larger one the ultimate lobe. That's the one that looks. It's flatter. Looks more like a pancake. And then there's Tuli the smaller lobe, which is in my notes here. Steven it seems like you have described it as a dented walnut. Which is interesting. It's like you drive your walnut. And it goes up on the curb and hits into something. Yeah. Dent it happens sometimes with walnuts. It's weird object to than we thought. And so I am officially saying. It is no longer snowman it is now a walnut pancake one at pancakes. Good, right. You can see the image in the show notes where they they have backlit. And it's basically the space cab racing away from the scene, right? Like new doesn't slow down for this just a drive by type deal. And and this this happened. This image is like ten minutes after it crossed the closeness approach point. So it spins around and gets this picture backlash. It. There's something sort of this slack something sort of unsettling about this animation. They put together like how quickly it's moving. And I don't know. It's it's so strange. It's something so far away seem so lifelike, you know, so animated, but but there he is. And and yeah, not not round. Which is not not what we spoke about. It's not really what what the team spoke about. But it goes to show how much more data there is to to deal with right? And even theories that were relative or theories that were relevant excuse me a month ago. Now been tossed out as new data comes in. And that'll be the case over the coming much. More data is downloaded from new horizons and sifted through by these teams that there were learning as we go with this thing. And you know, we haven't seen these objects close before it is an unknown world to us and to what we know today could be something different down the road. Yeah. That's for me. That's the key thing is that it's it's. It's something that is we we talk about our strana mors talk about contact binary and weird shapes of stuff. That's not large enough to kind of collapse into a circle into into fear and be like all these nice plans. We see that are just a big ball like Pluto right Puerto, which is a minor planet. Don't don't Email me. But there's weird stuff out there too. And we theoretically know it and can infer it from far far away. But it's very different to be up close to one of these. And that will help change our conception of how a lot of these scattered icy objects that are not big enough to be a big sphere. Like, Pluto are what they're what they're like out there in the Capel strange corner. This oh system. It turns out. It's a very weird neighborhood. It is ownership gears a little bit. And we spoken about the Morris twenty twenty Rover several times so sort of the the sequel to. Curiosity Rover built on the same chassis, but all new instrumentation on it. It's going to work on different things and Nasr's getting ready for frit showing up with maven. So never may it launched a couple of years ago several years ago now and satellite orbiting Mars and its mission was to ascertain what happened to the atmosphere at Mars..

They give off the same blow you see under a black light scientists use that glow to detect chemicals that form in the presence of life. A laser instrument called Sherlock will be the first to use those same forensic techniques. On Mars Sherlock will photograph the rocks. It targets then use a high precision laser to illuminate rock features as fine as a human hair before mapping the chemicals. It detects. But that level of precision requires a calibration target to help tweak the laser settings so Sherlock, we'll have a companion on the Mars twenty twenty Rover. An actual piece of Mars.

"That's basically very consistent with what a dust devil does. So when you have these kind of little, you know, wind events they that do create kind of low pressure zone around them. You cannot you can measure that curiosities measured those kind of things on its own weather. Stay. As well. And it's it's pretty cool. So is that a good sign for opportunity? Well, we already know that. I mean, if you're mentioning. Insights, very close to curiosity, and we know curiosities already getting quite a bit of wind right now. We haven't seen that same level of active wind weather, you know, the thousands of kilometers to the west that that opportunity is, but it's only a matter of time we've just kinda entered the the windiest part of the year 'cause it's the summer. And so there's lots of heat energy hitting there. So and actually opportunities in pretty, you know, atypically Wendy spies on the slope of this crater and the wind should be shooting up those slow, so I it's in it's best spot. So I'm really watching the next four or five weeks for for up to ninety. I think that's kind of the sweet spot. If we don't hear something by then then start to have sad feelings. I think it's just good. It's a good not only is it a good sign. But I think it's also good for public relations kind of communications to have a registered dust devil on Mars because at. A time where the listening campaign of opportunity was under fire people like you and others were saying, hey, if we wait until these months that we're in now, that's dust devil season to be able to say, look we've already got one here. This is following what our prediction say I feel like that's a good sign if not only for the goodwill that it builds towards the opportunity team being right? It does give us a little hope that we might hear something back pretty soon for the little Rover out there yet will hopefully the Martian Gaza listening to you say that. All right. Forget you out here last little story here the Mars twenty twenty Rover landing site was chosen this following pretty closely over the last what year two years that it's been talking about. Yeah. Couple years now, I think I've been following it. So we've we've picked Jezero crater. Is that correct? Yet started out of myself for a second. Because I remember the delta, and I was like it was it named Delta's something. So what's up with this crater? Tell me do you like it not like it. And what should we be cited about? Yeah. This is my favorite from the beginning. If I'm being totally honest and has I don't wanna take credit for predicting, but I will take credit for predicting it. So this is a pretty exceptional little place on Mars and actually just had a conversation with Tim gouge who is basically the guy who's been leading the charge on the the advocacy of this of this place is pretty pretty known expert in this area. So he taught me a lot about it. And I'm even more jazz than it was before. But basically, you have this crater and us form by some sort of impact event. And then what's special about is that in two spots on the side of the.

"twenty twenty rover" Discussed on WGN Radio

"Movie. It's a great book to if you haven't read it, but the movie and the book are are fun and clever and kinda true. And that they said, okay, what would life on Mars bead? Like, how would you could you survive on your own up there? Your head do and then it was sort of crowd sourced and became the book and became the movie. And it's it's all fun, but this isn't fiction now, the insight Lander is evidently on the surface. We reached out to Michelle Nichols director of public observing it Adler planetarium just to sort of put a bow on this thing at least forest today. Or maybe to get started, Michelle. It's John Williams. You're on WGN. How're you doing? Great, john. How are you? Really good. I was so happy because we were able to hear on the radio, you know, sort of the eight hundred meters three hundred meters the landing and then the people and if NASA all cheering, and that's that's kind of the the touchdown moment. Isn't it? It never gets old. Yeah. There was exactly when when you heard it. That's when NASA heard it. So what did that mean though, that was it actually landing on the surface? Then it's it's there and so far so good. So far so good with the only difference is that there's a time delay between the the radio signal going from Mars to earth. So it actually happened about seven minutes prior in an actual real time. But that's exactly when the signal arrived at earth too to when we found out that it was successfully landed on Mars when is it going to start doing the things that it's going to do it's going to be a few months? The first thing they're going to have to do in the next few hours is still is deployed, the solar panels. So it'll it'll need some way to generate energy. And then the over the next few months, make sure that the science instruments are working well, and then they'll be a robotic arm that will actually lift up a couple of science instruments in place them on the surface of Mars. They just need to pick which they want that's making flat. And we'll do what they needed to do was going to drive around. Does it have a Rover on it? This window Lander. So this one needs to be as stable, and it's still as possible. So no wheels on this one. So it has legs and it's just going to sit in one spot. And so do they know I mean, are they tilted are the at an angle is it on a good level area? How do they know that it's not in a precarious position? They had gotten an initial image from the spacecraft right after it landed just a couple of minutes after it landed it sends an initial image. It still has a bunch of dust on it. 'cause there was a dust cover over the lens of the camera to protect against any dust, it might fly up, but initially looking at that image. It looks nice and flat. It basically landed on a parking lot on Mars. So that's exactly where they want it to be. So initial indications are that it is sitting exactly the way they wanted to. But don't know more over the next few hours. I gotta tell you. I just find myself in awe the one derivative if think about like this so somebody on earth hits. The button seven minutes later that signal travels up there and now magically and arm is going to deploy and begin to capture sunlight and charge a battery. So this thing can do things that just just that simple fact, alone is kind of blows the mind doesn't it? Yeah. And you just got to feel for the folks who are on the team that something they built is sitting on another planet right now. Right. This very second. Just got there and got their successfully. And it's just it never gets old. Absolutely never ever gets old. What was the leg? I mean, how how long have these people than working on this? How long does this project? Ben play. A little over a decade. But the some of the ideas for for this space craft in the instruments have been had been around for several decades. There have been people working on this their whole career. And so it's it's never quick to get something to another planet. So they had to come up with the idea, and and propose it get it funded and get it built and tested and the good thing with this one is so it was working on technology for landing that already was used on another Lander called Phoenix which landed on Mars several years ago. So they at least had technology that they knew worked once before. But it's never never done deal. Just because did it before it doesn't mean that it'll work this time room, and it was in orbit for six months before touchdown today. It was on route to Mars for about six months. So it launched back in may. And it basically just it went straight to Mars. There was no no orbiting no stopping along the way. This thing went directly from earth to Mars. How does it know where to go? Oh, that's a great question. It's it's all physics. It's really I think Newton tells us how to figure this out so, but they basically have to pick their spot and work their way backwards and figure out. Okay. If we want to get to this spot, we have to be in this place in space, and then we have to get there this way, and we have to launch date at this time. So it's it's a whole lot of physics equations, but it all boils down to getting to a precise spot on Mars. So in that case, then to get it to where it is just go and land means maybe when you lift off is just as critical because that's when everything. Absolutely, absolutely. Just a very short launch window depending on where you're going if it's into earth orbit or on your way to Mars, they're going to Jupiter or something you're launch window, maybe instantaneous like if you don't launch at this particular second on this particular day. Then you got you gotta wait another day. So yeah, it can it can be a pretty short launch window when people go to the mall, and they drive around the parking lot waiting waiting waiting for a spot. That's what I would have done on this March. I thought well, I'm sure they're gonna fly around a few times. And just like, okay, everybody. Are we ready because? No second chance. Are you ready? But no, they just went straight in. Yeah. They they did that before with the Viking Landers. So the Viking missions to Mars they did orbit for a while. And then they sent lenders down, but the these they just go straight there, if you if you want to stick around in orbit for a while, you need more fuel you need a bigger space craft costs more money all that stuff. So it all goes into into account when they're trying to figure out exactly how they want to get there. So what do we expect to get out of this mission? We will find out something that we have no idea the answer to and that is what is the interior of Mars like you'd think something that that simple of a question. We would have known the answer decades ago. But we don't we need a spacecraft that will sit there we need to understand what the interior of Mars is like now what it was like in the past is liquid is it solid. Are there Mars quakes are there? Other things that can tell us about what the interiors lake so this is an extraordinarily important mission because everything under the surface every single thing under the surface. We we don't know. And so it's going to answer a whole lot of questions. Hopefully in the next two years a little worried about the drill because I don't know if there's a hard rock in the way, or I to me the kind of fraught with peril there how and how will the martians feel? Well, the martians already know everything they know were there. They probably saw meteors streaking through the sky when this thing landed. But yeah, the drill. It's it's hey science. That's what you got to you. That's what you got to hope that you built something that will handle the conditions that you've got. But you're right. If there's some Kuwaiti heard lock underneath then you just happen to put your deal right over it. Well, you're only going about his fires that drill that will let you go. So, but they hope to get that drill down about about sixteen feet. So that would be ideal. But frankly betcha they'd be happy with anything. But sixteen feet is ideal. And didn't a previous Lander on Mars discovered. Some sort of proto organic matter. Do we believe that this is there any hope of finding any evidence of life on Mars, not with this particular mission? But the next Rover the Mars twenty twenty Rover doesn't have a it's it's fancy name yet. But. Mars twenty twenty for now. It looks a lot like the curiosity Rover that landed in twenty twelve but it will have different instruments that is the mission that's going to start to search for signs of prior life on Marsh don't know full find it. But that's the mission that will really have the science instruments dedicated to answering that question we're going to be there in two years two years. Yeah, I'm going to be there in two years. Why the calendar? Yeah. And even even even more fancy landing system, but we use the same landing system when we landed curiosity in twenty twelve so it's nice to use technology that you know, you worked once before. But like I said, there's no guarantee the next time around it's going to work, but there's at least a a better chance that you know, that's gonna work and the astronauts that are on this mission. Do they have enough food and water and oxygen? Astronauts up on the international space station who will probably watching NASA TV's landed. They are just fine. No, people know people on this one just a just a plucky little Lander that that got it self demars. And so hopefully over the next few months in a couple of years, we'll get some great science data from this. Well, that's all sounds terrific Michelle, and by the way. Did I see and some reporting this the Adler planetarium has any sort of connection or was it just that you were like other places monitoring. It has Adler done any work on this mission per se. No, not per se. We we definitely monitor everything that Nassar's up too. So we had a a watch party there going on. So folks were there watching and cheering them on. I saw some video of that they posted to our interior communication system of of that. So folks were there and they were excited and staff were excited, and it's a fun time. We like it when stuff goes, well, it's not as fun when it goes badly. Anything else you'd like us to know about what's going on over to either before. I let you go. Oh, we've got our space odyssey after dark coming up in December. So if you want to have some fun for the twenty one and over there's tickets are available right now. So go to other planetarium dot ORG..

Euro very welcome going back to the opening where you not. The opportunity Rover getting in the back in. Yeah. Yeah. I thought they gave the my mind is. Well, what happens when we have a vehicle wandering around on earth that get stuck in the sand or the snow or whatever like that. And. The thing that comes to mind is that something comes along and tries to render assistance. Like what? Well, like, a triple a tow truck or something like that in and so. Oh, well, you know, obviously, the problem was simple is the batteries dead. So it up and it. Fires it up. And and, you know, of course. They're selling out there actually, sending up a Mars twenty twenty Rover saying that up. Should be on Mars soon can be landing. It's the exploration Rover bed. They're sending out. There was you know opportunity and now is the March twenty twenty Rover keeps sending up Rovers to replace the other Rovers. But yeah, I mean, I don't know if you're going to be able to reprogram or otherwise turn on opportunity because it's been shut down its batteries are dead because it's not getting energy from from the sun. What what about a an extra crust real load assistance kinda thing by well? They're not doing. Well. Here's a thing not doing. Well. What's that? Stuck in the sand. And so it is it's. The charge it back up and burst out of signal. But it wasn't complete. So we receive a signal, and we think, oh, well there's opportunity. Oh, wait. No. It couldn't be up late. And that's my old. Well, that's the thing that it was something like that. Nasa never said, it was that. There was no other you know, Rover like showing up and saying, oh, we're sending signal to say we turned on opportunity didn't happen. And so it's it's funny. But no that didn't happen to go to Steven in Texas. Hi, Steve Young ground zero. Hey, how're you doing? It's curious. My dad actually live near Roswell. When the big event happened the biggest store one and he had a first person account of that event. I was curious if you wanted to hear that in what way was the first person account. About a five year old boy actually driving into Roswell without my grandmother, and Sal the event happened and from his perspective the story that he told me why because later on he ended up working for the Apollo program and actually had a whole bunch of location for a whole bunch of conspiracy theories happened, but looking back on it when he was older said it looking at him like a only missile tests, like something like it was early development of a missile that just lights and all sorts of weird stuff on it. But as it across the sky, he said when he looked back on it as an adult. He said it looked like an early version of a missile that just went absolutely a wall. Yeah. Roswell stephen. That's very good Roswell. Apparently, a lot of you believe a saucer crash there. They said a saucer crash. But no, it didn't look like a saucer at all it looked like it had wings..

Very welcome going back to the opening where you're not. The role opportunity you were over getting stuck in the back in June. Yeah. Yeah. I thought that came to my mind is well what happens when we have a vehicle wandering around on earth that get stuck in the sand or the snow or whatever like that. And. The thing that comes to mind is that something comes along and tries to render assistance. Like what? Well, like, you know, a triple a tow truck or something like that. And if so it. Hooked up and says, oh, well, you know, obviously, the problem was if the battery is dead, so it up and it. Fires it up. And and you know, I just. They're selling out there actually setting up a Mars twenty twenty Rover. I mean agreed saying that up should be on Mars soons can be landing. It's the exploration Rover bed. They're sending out.

A laser instrument called Sherlock will be the first to use those same forensic techniques. On Mars Sherlock will photograph the rocks. It targets then use a high precision laser to illuminate rock features as fine as a human hair before mapping the chemicals. It detects. But that level of precision requires a calibration target to help tweak the laser settings so Sherlock, we'll have a companion on the Mars twenty twenty Rover. An actual piece of Mars.

Liz, probably an hour to an hour and a half, two long. Wait. You wanted to thirty minute film. I wanted to thirty minute fill. It was two and a half, two hours and twenty five minutes. Yeah, I watched it last night and I counted as long film. Yeah, it was. I thought it was good. I, I enjoyed it. I love Matt, Damon. I didn't think it was a comedy. I know one Golden Globe for best comedy. That's correct one the best motion picture for musical or comedy and best actor musical or comedy to David. Yeah, nor musical neat. Neither comedy, correct? Yeah. But did that some had Kristen wig and Donald Glover. Right, but as a -sarily being funny, it wasn't like filled with jokes or anything? No, maybe twice controversial characterization, but I thought it was hilarious. Actually everything that Damon had to do and the quirky NASA guy. I thought it was funny, but I agree that I would not have categorized it as a comedy either. I would have tended to stick it in the drama category. Exactly trying to straddle that line. I think there were a lot of parts also, but the way that a lot of action movies are funny or the way a lot of drama movies are funny where it's like, oh, it's nice that there's comic relief and such, but I wouldn't. Yes. It's a comedy film, right? So, but I liked it. Okay. Great. Yeah, yeah, I liked it as well. I thought it was entertaining. I thought it was fun. I like that it was seemingly accurate. Like there wasn't too many parts where I just felt like, oh, that's totally ridiculous. You know, it really felt like, oh, this kind of, you know, legit space movie. I just wouldn't know. I have no idea like get into it. Yeah, there were a lot of things where I was like, is that accurate? I guess we'll find out things that are not, but that is okay. Okay. Talk about it. We'll separate the fact from fiction here today. I have a lot of questions but, but before even get into that, I saw one of your emails that you were saying that it's a big week for those of us who are deciding where to send Rovers to Mars that there's like a Mars twenty twenty science team that is having like. Pre workshop meetings? Yeah, this is a big week. It actually starts tomorrow. We are deciding where to send the next Rover, which is going to launch in the year twenty twenty and there's a whole planet out there as anyone who's watched the Martian can appreciate their long distances to be considered. You can't get everywhere. And so we, the science community have to decide what is the golden spot for this for this Rover to go speaking of golden spot. Are you considering Asadollah plenty Shia? No, acidly. Plenty Shas not on the list. Norrish chaperone crater from from a, you know, following the water on Mars, looking for life. Those are not the most exciting places to go, but they are flat places to land. And so the Martian did nail that they got that right are good places flat places to land and so they are safe, but we're gonna try to go somewhere a little bit more exciting from the life front with our twenty twenty Rover. What does that mean? Exciting life on the front. That means we're going to go some place where there is a lot of evidence for water in the past flowing through rocks and we're gonna take a look at those rocks and see if there any Microfossils or bio signatures of life with this next Rover, I hope you find it. I have said she said it's a big week and but it was nice actually to kick off this week by watching the Martian which which had a little fun with Mars exploration before we get into the work later in the week..

"Masking tape like just you can buy the hardware store except that they have that tape like laser cut by a thing to make it exactly the right shape before they put it on. So that's it was fascinating to hear how like one very small step of the process for how to get a Rover ready to go to Mars works and and the people necessary to make that I'll happen. That is really cool. Is it going to launch in twenty twenty? Or is it going to get there in twenty twenty? It's gonna launch and twenty twenty or that is the plan at least feel it. When you name it, the Mars twenty twenty Rover, you're really committing to a time. Well, it will have a different name by the time it launches. It's like if you Lon musk called the tesla model, three tesla 2017. Yeah, in a problem. Yeah, that's that's they, they'll come up with some some fancier name like spirit opportunity curiosity by the time it launches, but they just that's the that's the sort of like working operating title right now. What's it? Good value along with curiosity opportunity that you could name it. Careful, careful. The Mars careful Rover. There's a rock. They're careful, jeez, don't drive it into the dirt. I want to want to create a Twitter that does nothing but respond to every single tweet written by every single person all day long, the word careful. That's a lot. Maybe rethink that. Just give it a thought. Sure you wanna share that careful pink. The news from EMC Wimbledon is terrible, unrelentingly terrible Wimbledon to Plymouth Argyle. Who are the worst team in league one, we also lost one nil to Bradford City who were one of the worst teams in league one. There's a lot of talk these days about change and whether change is necessary. Wimbledon, of course, if had the same manager Neal, Ardley a hero for the club played for the club when he was a boy. For now, I think six or seven years saw us rise up from league to to lead one helped us secure survival in league two in our first year when we almost went back down to non league football. So Neil Ardley has been an amazing manager for Wimbledon that said, the situation is pretty bleak. Right now not a lot of goals, not a lot of excitement, not a lot of optimism and Wimbledon are just outside of the relegation zone in twentieth place twenty first through twenty four th will be relegated to league tune the fourth tier of English football. So maybe there's a spot of hope in that, but it's not great. That's good. And you got a lot of of like season left, so as their stuff you can change now that can affect that. Yeah. The biggest thing that gets changed generally in these situations. Is the manager though, you know? So I think that's just a difficult. Here's the truth. It is really hard to run a football club effectively on a budget. Wimbledon has one of the lowest budgets in the football league. That's hard. It's always going to be hard. And I think to an extent with the current budget, there's a ceiling of how well Wimbledon can do, and in a way they're past that ceiling and so it's always going to be really hard in the third tier unless you know, I don't know. So I don't know. I, I feel very conflicted about it. I like Neal, Ardley allot, but I also understand how frustrated the fans are. Well, I, I don't know how to fix football teams, but I do know that you guys have got the passion and you're going to have your new home, and that's all going to be good for the long term of the club. The up. We just gotta. We gotta get to plough lane. Gotta get back to plumbing. Thank thank you for potting with me. It's always a pleasure I even when you're sick. Yeah, I'm sorry that I'm so raspy and, oh. Oh, preferred preferred, like having coffee breaks. Okay, good. Glad I could be there for you.
