Back to the Moon: Trump Appointee Fires NASA Veteran to Speed Lunar Mission


Published on Jul 15, 2019

President Trump wants NASA to get Americans back to the moon in five years. To heighten the urgency, NASA administrator Jim Bridenstine — a Trump political appointee — fires William Gerstenmaier, a well-respected 42-year NASA veteran in charge of human space exploration. Will this sudden move light a fire under the bureaucracy, or did we just lose four decades of institutional knowledge jeopardizing our safe return to the lunar surface? Should NASA get our of the business of human space transportation? Bill Whittle Now, with Scott Ott, comes to you free because a growing group of committed conservatives pays for its production.

It is flying its third mission, it previous launched the Telstar 18V satellite in September of 2018 and flew the Iridium 8 mission in January of this year. It will be landing approximately 621 km (385 miles) downrange on the Autonomous Spaceport Drone Ship (ASDS), Of Course I Still Love You (OCISLY). This will be one of the farthest downrange landing locations for a Falcon 9 so far. Want more info? We’ve got you covered!

How to defend yourself against misleading statistics in the news | Sanne Blauw | TEDxMaastricht


Published on Nov 3, 2016

Numbers are being used every day. In the news, in politics, in our jobs, and even in our social interactions. They are used to convince, explain, but also to deflect from what is truly happening. Too often, numbers appear as abstract, objective and difficult. Sanne Blauw’s mission is to make the world of numbers accessible to all. Sanne has broken most stereotypes about someone interested in mathematics throughout her life. From working at the OECD, to being a member of her University Council, to becoming a journalist. Sanne is far more than what most people would expect from a person with a PhD in econometrics. She strives to convince all of us to second-guess the numbers that shape our worldview. This talk is a must for all who work in journalism. Sanne Blauw is journalist for De Correspondent. She obtained a PhD degree in econometrics at the Tinbergen Institute and the Econometric Institute of the Erasmus University Rotterdam. Using various quantitative methods, she combined applied micro-econometrics, psychology and development economics. Sanne is convinced that a better understanding of statistics would make the world a better place.

TS Barry – Possible Hurricane Barry – Louisiana and Mississippi Prepare for Extreme Flooding…


The latest storm advisory from the National Hurricane Center still shows Louisiana as the most likely impacted region of the northern gulf coast. Tropical Storm Barry will likely become Hurricane Barry shortly before landfall.  Severe flooding is the largest concern.

National Hurricane Center – At 4:00pm CDT (2100 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Barry was located near latitude 27.8 North, longitude 89.3 West. Barry is moving toward the west near 5 mph (7 km/h) and this motion is expected to continue tonight. A turn toward the northwest is expected on Friday, followed by a turn toward the north on Saturday.

On the forecast track, the center of Barry will be near or over the central or southeastern coast of Louisiana Friday night or Saturday, and then move inland into the lower Mississippi Valley on Sunday.

Maximum sustained winds are near 40 mph (65 km/h) with higher gusts. Strengthening is expected during the next day or two, and Barry could become a hurricane late Friday or early Saturday when the center is near the Louisiana coast. Weakening is expected after Barry moves inland. (more)

Barry? Head’s Up Louisiana and Northern Gulf Region…


A storm is gaining strength in the northern Gulf of Mexico and the National Hurricane Center is now predicting organization to hurricane strength late Friday. If you live in a gulf coast community pay attention to storm updates.

At 1000 PM CDT (0300 UTC), the disturbance was centered near latitude 27.7 North, longitude 88.0 West. The system is moving toward the west-southwest near 9 mph (15 km/h). A motion toward the west is expected on Thursday, followed by a west-northwest motion on Friday and a northwestward motion by early Saturday. On the forecast track, the system is expected to approach the Louisiana coast this weekend.

Maximum sustained winds remain near 30 mph (45 km/h) with higher gusts. Strengthening is forecast during the next couple of days, and the disturbance is forecast to become a tropical depression early Thursday, a tropical storm by late Thursday, and a hurricane by late Friday. (LINK)

Correlated Earthquakes from Alaska to California July 3rd-5th, 2019


QUESTION: You warning that earthquakes were due in California with solar minimum seem to be right on target. Why won’t they just look at your correlations since this is not some opinion you pull out of thin air?

FB

ANSWER: A quake hit last Thursday on the 4th of July which was the largest earthquake to strike Southern California in nearly 20 years with a magnitude 6.4 temblor centered in Ridgecrest, California. Then the aftershock was even bigger. A 7.1 earthquake rocked Southern California last Friday night unleashing multiple fires. They called a state of emergency is declared in Ridgecrest and San Bernardino County.  You can watch the energy wave set off by the earthquake on July 4th ripple through the entire United States.

Lost in the headline of the California quake was the fact that there was a 6.2 magnitude earthquake recorded off the coast of northern Vancouver Island on Wednesday night – July 3rd. There was also a 4.7 earthquake just south of Cohoe, Alaska also on July 3rd. Therefore up and down the West Coast of the USA/Canada, there was correlated earthquake activity which seems to be linked.

Watch SpaceX Push their Falcon Heavy further than ever!


Want a full rundown? Check out our Prelaunch Preview for this launch! – https://everydayastronaut.com/prelaun… SpaceX will be launching the Space Test Program 2 (STP-2) rideshare mission for the U.S. Air Force’s Space and Missile Systems Center on a Falcon Heavy rocket. This Falcon Heavy is composed of a new block 5 center core (B1057) and the two block 5 side boosters (B1052 & B1053) from the Arabsat-6A mission. The launch window for this mission opens at 11:30 PM EDT on June 24, 2019 and is 4 hours in duration. The Falcon Heavy will be lifting off from Launch Complex 39A (LC-39A) at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. After burning for about 2 and a half minutes, the side boosters will separate from the core booster and boost back to the launch site for a landing at Landing Zones 1 & 2 (LZ-1 & LZ-2). The core booster will continue burning for another minute, before shutting down and separating from the second stage. The core booster will be landing approximately 1,240 km (771 miles) downrange on Autonomous Spaceport Drone Ship, Of Course I Still Love You (OCISLY).
