*Introduction* In 1969 a group of astronauts changed the world. They walked on the Moon. Armstrong: "one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind." In 1972 our journey ended, we've never been back. 2010 begins a year of change, private companies are working on next generation spaceships. Governments are looking to go back to the Moon and on to Mars. It's time to look up, and dream again. It's time to push Humans in to the Cosmos. It's time to educate and engage the planet. It's time for SpaceVidcast. ♫ Introduction Music ♫ Ben: Welcome to SpaceVidcast Episode 3.23 for Friday, July 9th 2010. I had no idea what the show was or what the date was. Cariann: You're just going to say stuff. Ben: Just going to continue talking until I get the right information. Which is how it usually goes. My name is Benjamin Higginbotham... and with me is the beautiful, lovely, wonderful and talented Cariann Higginbotham and we are your 'Spacevidcasters'. We've got an action packed epic show for you tonight. Before we get in to that I did want to remind everyone, "Yuri's Night" is just under a year away. Ben & Cariann: *laughter*. Ben: 277 days away. We baught this up last week, and I'm pretty sure I'm going to bring this up every single week from now on. Cariann: You have to now. Ben: Hit the QR code on your screen with your mobile phone. We're targeting 1,000 parties. Across the planet. In space, In the solar system. Doesn't matter. Doesn't have be here, just on Earth. It's time to celebrate the start of Human spaceflight. A new era for Humanity. If we get a thoushand parties, you and I [Cariann] will broadcast the global Yuri's Night webcast. Cariann: We will be doing it anyway. But we promise to do it for 24 hours. Ben: We will do it for a full 24 hours! And we will jump from every time zone around the planet. The entire day. How epic will that be? Cariann: and I will note that around hour 12, or so, is when we really start to get loopy. Ben: Please, hour 12? *laughter*. Do you think we'll last that long? Cariann: Yes I do, actually. So my point is, hour 12 is when we start to get loopy. And we'll have another 12 hours on top of that. Lord only knows, what will happen. Ben: for more information, hit Yuri Gagarin the first human in space, comma... ever. Also coming up in two weeks, we're going to be there... hopefully broadcasting live at the very least recording. The 'New Space 2010 Conference' from the Space Frontier Foundation. And we have got a little commercial for that in the break. Which will be awesome. So stay tuned for that in the back half of the show. If you can, hit ''. I think it is. Cariann: hit the QR code it's way easier. But tickets just went on sale. And so that is coming up July 23rd. It's in 14 days, 22 hours, 48 minutes and 08 seconds. It's coming up July 23rd, through June 25th 2010. And will be in Silicon Valley, California. Ben: It's going to be awesome, and I expect you guys to be there. And I want to get together with fellow spacevidcasters. New Space is kind of our thing, were all about new space. And kind of pushing humanity forward. And saying, "you know just because we've done something for the past 30 years. Doesn't mean it's the right thing." It's not just saying, "yeah we should go in to space, but how should we go in to space and why we would go in to space." and alot of that will be at the New Space Conference. It's uniquely suited for what we do. I'm very excited for that, so we're going to be there. Hopefully broadcasting live, but if not live certainly recording it. I think it's time that we get started with a little thing I like to call... Adam, could you help us out with this? ♫ 'Space News' Introduction ♫ Ben: the beautiful irony behind all of this, is we have got Adam in the studio, not our normal Adam. He's out having fun. Cariann: Oh, thought you broke it for a second. Ben: we're having some weird glitchy issues. Cariann: I'll keep moving so you'll always know. Ben: and Adam is the voice behind Spacenews. Cariann: Some people thought that was Ben because Ben has been known, in the most recent Spacepod to be singing. Ben: So, starting of our spacenews. Um. actually I wanna... yeah, oh no. I forgot to put a video in. That's ok! Um... I'll put it. I'll bring up the graphic. And... bam! Cariann: So... 'robonaut' or R2 also talking about "Project M". I actually really like this picture, 'cos it is like the old and new. Ben: actually, I'm going to drop the chatroom 'cos I think it's really cool. You have to see the hand shake. Cariann: It's the old and the new intermixing. Anyway, Project M is trying to get... and they named it Project M because we're trying to get robonauts to the Moon by 2013. Ben: is it robonauts plural or robonauts singular going to the Moon? Cariann: I guess... I don't know, the PDF was 35 pages long and I didn't have time to read it all. Ben: I just assume that it was singular. But before that on STS-133. Cariann: a robonaut is supposed to be going to the ISS. Which some people have joked about, But now they also have their own robot butler. Ben: *laughter*. Cariann: but one of the cool things about the robonauts is the full range and motion they have in their arms and hands. They have 200 sensors or something like that. So they can do anything and everything a Human can do in Space. Ben: here's an interesting thing, when I saw the pictures and was reading about it, the robonaut is not a brand new thing by the way. and for some reason it's all the rage on Twitter the past couple of days. I think we've even done stories about the robonaut. Cariann: well NASA Edge did a episode back in March or something like that. Ben: but my understanding was when robonaut goes to the Moon it will have wheels, not feet. but check this out. They've actually got a nifty video that shows you the entire process. Getting from Earth to the Moon. A little promotional video. Mission Control: "T-Minus 10 seconds, go for main engine start." Seven. Six Five Four Three Two One. And lift off! Ben: One interesting thing, actually two interesting things. So first off you know how I mentioned it was going to have wheels? In that video, it actually had legs. Cariann: which makes for a better picture, really. You have Neil Armstrong's foot print, you get robonauts foot print. Way cooler than wheel print. He definitely needs to take a picture, is he going to have a camera in his chest? Ben: no, he IS the camera. Did everyone notice at the end, where it said in 1,000 days? Cariann: IN A THOUSHAND DAYS! Ben: We've been reading up on that, and what they want to do... in one thoushand days is launch robonaut to the International Space Station. But they haven't given a starting date. Cariann: ... to the Moon. Ben: sorry, to the Moon. Ben: they're already going to the International Space Station on STS-133. So we were like ok. Well in the next thoushand days starting from.... when? Ben & Cariann: right. Ben: so you found out the actual proposed start date is... Cariann: May 3rd 2010 Ben: I thought it was May 25th? Cariann: No, I'm sorry. They wanted to be approved by March 25th 2010. That's what it was. Ben: That's when they wanted to be approved by, but it apparently starts when it gets approved for the mission. But I don't believe it's actually been approved for the mission. But here at SpaceVidcast that's never stopped us before. So we have started the official countdown There's the countdown clock! right there, on the screen. nine hundred and fifty five days, eleven hours, thirty five minutes and twenty seconds! until I expect to see robonaut on the Moon. I think we should just leave that up there. Cariann: forever. Ben: 'cos robonaut is just that cool. Cariann: Thank you Dave Masten in the chat room talking about budget approval. Ben: right, they don't actually start a thoushand days until the budget approval. So we may end up resetting our clock. But regardless I'm just going to start the clock anyhow. I've just started the clock. Cariann: somebody has to. Ben: I have that authority. I have granted my self that authority. Moving on 'Hayabusa'... speaking of really awesome, cool, epic things. Hayabusa, we did a spacepod on Hayabusa and it's basically a little space craft that could, essentially, and it came back and they basically had to test all of the surroundings; soil and everything around it. And we've got pictures. Cariann: well the funny thing is that people are a little bit upset because, I think that they were expecting... you know. Ben: rocks! Cariann: this was suposed to be a collection probe, that's what this was. This is why it hit the asteroid, and did all these things. and you open it up and this is what's inside... Ben: if you can't see it, let's zoom in. Cariann: there you go. We found something! [sarcastically] Ben: don't get me wrong, this is still very cool. First off go back and watch that Spacepod, because it really does talk about everything that they have to over come for this mission. Cariann: yeah, they had many issues. Considering all those different issues, they did an amazing job. Don't get me wrong. Ben: and so, I was kind of expecting more too. I figure that they show the animation, I should have run the animation, they show it... scooping and sucking things in. Let's go back to that and show it one more time. Ben: BUT! Cariann: it's more filled than what they went up with. Ben: Yes, now... we're still going to verify if that's surrounding Earth, something that was kicked up in our atmosphere. or if that really is part of an asteroid. And if that is part of an asteroid that is the most expensive particle asteroid, I think anyone has ever seen Cariann: Yeah, but it's beautiful. Isn't it? Ben: When we come back, more awesome spacenews. We'll be right back. ♪ Music ♪ Hey everyone, I'm Rod Roddenberry, I'm here with the Roddenberry dive team. The Rodberry diving team takes the principals and philosophies of Star Trek and incorporates them in to ocean exploration. But when it comes to real space exploration, I'd like to suggest you guys check out the Space Frontier Foundations New Space 2010 conference... and visit their website at The New Space 2010 Conference, you'll get the opportunity to meet and hear from the people that are blazing trails to new worlds so that you get the opportunity to go where no one has gone before. Ben: the people in the chat room had a very good conversation in the break, which is one of the reasons why you should be joining us live. speaking of being able to join us live, it was baught up in pre-show if you wanted to watch us on your HD TV can you watch the live shows on our Roku Channel? And the answer is absolutely, yes. You can watch us live, you can watch our NASA TV channel which is the 24/7 channel. Which is usually NASA TV. then when we're on we'll cut into NASA TV, it's usually cartoons that we cut in to. And do our live show, you can absolutely watch it on your HD TV. and then if you want to, we have a live feed from the International Space Station which you can watch on your HD TV, which is kind of cool. and we've got all of our Spacepods and the archived versions of these shows, all available. And it's Pete, in the chat room, who takes care of all of all this stuff. I don't have the ability to do this stuff. I'm just like "I LIKE HD!" and he's been doing a fantastic job, so good infact that there are 9,768 subscribers. Cariann: No, 9,678. Ben: Keeping me honest. Cariann: It's just... you know. Ben: I got the right numbers! What's the order matter? Our Roku Channel, which I believe is the largest single player subscription that we have. Even lager than YouTube. I think we have four or five thoushand subscribers on YouTube, and our Roku channel has only been out for, like, two weeks. So we can taste ten thoushand. Just right around the corner. It's going to be awesome. And I know that Pete is working on some pretty awesome upgrades for the channel. So go to, pick up a box and the channel is free. It's $100 for the box. And if you're watching this live, it's Amazons deal of the day. So you can get like $30 off. Is that what you were going to say? Cariann: Yes. Ben: I totally stole your thunder. Cariann: You usually do... Ben: ... shall we continue this? ... shall we keep going? Cariann: er, well... yes. I think we should for a matter of fact. Ben: here we go, let's continue Who had the two year old that did the Jazz hands? Cariann: I don't remember. Ben: Okay, well get your children ready. Cariann: Que the 2 year old. Ben: Que the Jazz hands. Ben: We've also got these, do you wanna do the Nebula or the posters? Cariann: Well I wanna do both. Ben: well... what do you wanna do next? Cariann: I want to do the Nebula next, is that ok? Ben: Ok, here we go. Everyone ready for pretty pictures? Ben: BAM! Ben: Look at that. Cariann: so this is the 'Carina Nebula'. Ben: That is beautiful. Cariann: which Ben sawn and automatically said. Cariann and Ben: Cariann!. Ben: It's the 'Carinna' nebula, we need a nebula named after you. Cariann: which works for me. It's close. It's the Carina Nebula. And Hubble recently was sneaking a peek, as it were, at the Carina Nebula. ...have the other picture? Ben: We're going to do an effect. Cariann: that was the most terrible effect ever. Don't ever do that effect again. Anyway, so this is what's going on in the Carina Nebula. Hubble is actually getting, pictures of a star being born in the Carina Nebula. So it's really cool. Cariann and Ben: [slurred words] Nebula. Cariann: Carina is hanging out there, and then in the middle of everything are these sort of fireworks of a star being born. Which is just amazing. and beautiful and very cool. and these pictures which were taken a while ago, have just recently been released. So just in time for 4th July. Ben: It was pretty. The imagery that comes off Hubble has forever changed... everything. Cariann: Thank God for Hubble, otherwise NASA would have been shut down by now. Ben: Actually, hang on... this just isn't spacenews, you know what... I've even got graphics for this I got in to a bit of a debate on Facebook and on YouTube and keep in mind I do actually... Cariann: he does read like... all of the comments. Ben: I may not respond to every comment but I do read everyones comments. Stall for me for just a moment. Cariann: Here I am... stalling. I have no idea what to talk about. Ben: That's a terrible stall. Ben: Here we go... here is the debate. This is not to... urm. I'm not doing this to call anyone out. It's an interesting perceptive. It's a different perceptive to what I have, not necessarily a wrong perceptive. and I thought I would start a conversation about this on the show. And get what everyones thoughts are. Because this relates directly to constellation being cancelled. My point in one of the spacepods what that, we are getting rid of a space programme. And replacing it with a space industry. 'Armyfootball' [YouTube User]... what I think that means, said "Space programme can co exsist with a space industry. Not mutually exclusive." and that sparked a bit of a debate. And head over to that particular Spacepod to add your two cents He's not necessarily wrong, he or she is not necessarily wrong. They don't need to be mutually exclusive. Infact, I don't think they should be. Why can't we have both? A space programme and a space industry. My argument, just to make my side. It's not exactly fair because I have the podium right now. But my argument is, we've had a space programme for the last 50 years, we went to the Moon, we came back. Been stuck in low earth orbit. It hasn't worked for us. We cannot at this time, financially afford to fund both the space programme and space industry. Unless we give NASA what I like to call, and this is a highly technical term a "butload" more money. Cariann: *laughter* ... of all the highly technical terms, you could have chosen. That was the one go with. I was expecting 'epic epic-ness' Ben: epic epicness of epic! My point is I would love to see both the space programme and the space industry. And allow the space industry todo Leo, and move on to the Moon & Mars Where ever they want to go. But let NASA do what they should be doing, which is that bleeding edge, new frontiers, inspirational type stuff. going in to low Earth orbit has been done... for 30 years. It's boring. I would love for you guys to continue the conversation on YouTube. Remember two things. One: people are very heated on this topic. Maintain respect at all times, don't belittle people. It's their opinion, there is no right answer. Certainly voice your opinion and back it up but don't do personal digs. It's not what this is about. and the second point is remember to be constantly checking our website for this stuff because we do like to have this conversation expanding It's not just us talking about this stuff, it's the entire community. It's a collective. We are the borg. I am locutus. Cariann: I shoved into the chat room an infographic talking about 'what is space', where is the line of space. It said that we couldn't include it. but it's done this way. Instead of like wide. It's done like a really long graphic, like this. So you get some type of perceptive. they're talking like this is the furthest out that something has been. And that's where this is. This is where this human was. And all of that stuff. with lots of extra just space inbetween. It really does bring home the point of not getting very far. Ben: we really haven't. We did flags and footprints on the Moon. And then we stopped. and I realise this is our montage, our song and dance. Infact on our business cards we've got a picture of the Moon, we're all about the Moon. And robonaut going up there is very cool! absolutely, I think we should do that. But Human's, there's something more inspiring. Putting Human's out there. And expanding our civilization off of this one planet. So if catastrophe does strike we've got some redundancy. So anyhow point is NASA doesn't have the funds todo both, they have to choose. And they're choosing to develop a space industry as opposed to continuing the space programme. And in my opinion, and it is just that an opinion. I need to make sure everyone understands that. In my opinion, it is the right move. Absolutely what we should be doing. It's not exactly a popular opinion but sometimes you have to do the harder things. Cariann: That's ok Ben, you've never been popular. *laughter* Ben: Touché Cariann: So, in the UK there is a guy who does some comics and what not. And he was approached to make these posters which are going to go into classrooms across the UK. which I think are very cool. And what's going on here is you're seeing two different variations of the same poster. And he used some regular ink on some of it and some heat sensitive ink, and that's what you're seeing. The poster kind of cold, I suppose, and the other side of it is the poster warmed up. And the whole concept is to see the world differently. You know, physics helps you to look at the world differently, and look at the world from a different perceptive. Ben: and star wipe... Cariann: Oh, that was way better than the other. These posters are really cool and I think it will get people interested in physics, and at the very least interested in heat sensitive ink. Which is still something to do with physics, or something isn't it? I'm not really sure. Ben: star wipe! Cariann: Great! So this is the cold version of this particular poster. And as you can see across the top, it tells a bit of a story almost. Somebody looking out the window then going up on to the roof and getting out a telescope and looking up at the Moon. and you can see them down at the left hand corner, and when you warm up the poster it looks like somebody on the Moon looking back at Earth. which I think is very very cool. They are not for sale at this point. Ben: Ah!! Gah!! Cariann: We are hoping that they become for sale relatively shortly. as soon as they do, as soon as I hear about that I will let you know. Because I think they are very very cool. Ben: or warm... Cariann: Haha! I like them either way! Ben: ZING! Cariann: so yeah right now, no where not even in the UK if you're outside of a classroom you cannot get your hands on these. which is very dissapointing, I understand. But yeah, we're working on it. I will put a link for that on our website. And enough response on this guys blog that maybe people will think about selling them. Ben: hopefully you guys liked this weeks show, next week we have got a guest on, we've got 'Dennis Wingo' the author of 'Moon Rush'. speaking of going back to the moon, there are several things you need to think about when going back to the Moon, not just the technical hurdles you have to get through, 'cos it's hard to do. It's... what's that term? Rocket Science!. Not just the technical hurdles but why should we go back to the Moon? Cariann: It IS rocket science, that's like difficult or something... Ben: I think this is very important for us space nerds to have a good answer for the none space nerds who go, "we've got all these problems here, why are we going back to the Moon?" we need to have an answer, "this is how it impacts you" and "this is how it will make your life better in the short term" so we will be asking Dennis about that on next weeks show. And that's all I know... and that's on the 16th, Friday the 16th and then Friday 23rd obviously the New Space Conference. and I have graphics... I'm so unprepared. Cariann: are we going to be live from the New Space Conference? Ben: That's what I was getting at, next week we will have Dennis on, we'll be talking about the Moon and why we should be going, what the benefits for humanity are. And then in two weeks time there will be no SpaceVidcast live show because we will be essentially flying at the time. We will be flying on the airplane, this is an airplane, to the conference. So in two weeks time, no live show! but we will hopefully be able to broadcast the actual event itself live so we will be back with you for that. Ben: any wrapping up news? Cariann: Urm no, but you know get a Roku box. Watch us on Roku. Rate us awesome because we are. See us in HD on your TV. Ben: did you just rhyme? Cariann: Yeah, I rhymed a V with V. Ben: I did wanna say for those Roku users who are watching us expecting NASA TV and are like, "who are these two fools?" 'cos we're not NASA. We'll give you just a quick moment, and we'll show you NASA. Here's what it would be like if we were NASA tv... Ben: Oh... the credits are broken. Ben and Cariann: *laughter* Ben: Oh no, they're broken. Really really broken. NO CREDITS! We're done Goodnight! ♪ Ben in different voice ♪ Director was Benny Higginbotham... hosted by Ben Higginbotham, co-hosted by Cariann... um on audio was Adam. ♪ Cariann mimicks outro music ♪ Ben: graphics were designed by BlueFox. Vax did something, Pete did something. Lots of people make this show possible. Thanks to Todd the Moon. Licensed under Creative Commons Attribution.
