this is sy bite episode 132 form a 27 2014 hi everyone and welcome back to side by Jupiter broadcasting’s weekly science podcast live on a Tuesday and fresh on a Wednesday over Jupiter broadcasting com my name is Chris and joining us every single week is our host Heather hey there Heather hey there Chris hey how they’re happy science to you happy science so what are we going to talk about today today we’re going to look at resurrecting a space probe classroom decorations brain control viewer feedback a three-year look back at sigh bite curiosity news and as always take a peek back in history and up in the sky this week sounds like quite a show well I have a humble suggestion why don’t we kick it off with the news okay Heather where do we begin today there’s the infinite team of engineers that has been recovering old imaging from magnetic tape reels from you know lunar orbiter missions and now they’ve decided to accomplish mitch has ever done before turn on command and maneuver a space NASA spacecraft that his neck bandhan for a long time wow so this was originally a mission between NASA and the ESR oesa to study the interaction with being its magnetic field in the solar wind so go back he was launched 1976 they do that mission then they say hey cool it still works now we’ll need to now they can switch and they started the International comment commentary Explorer on jun 10 1982 it was switched over to that and they could watch between solar wind and a commentary atmosphere now I didn’t have any cameras but they were still able to look at everything that was going on they’re able to fly by a comet halley in 86 but still it was just kind of it breached that point and then it was it was that it in 1997 NASA said all right missions over the probe the shutdown missions at all right we’ll just kind of leave the carrier signal on so that we can just kind of see that it’s there now in two thousand fast for 2 2008 they see hey it was never actually powered off the last time we talked to it and in fact all but one of its 13 experiments are still functioning and it still has proven some propellant left Wow so now fast forward a little bit more in earlier this year people at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center said you know the deep space network equipment needed to transmit the signals has been just was dis Commission in 99 there’s no economically feasible way to place it because this is you know equipment needed from to contact it was from nineteen seventies yeah yeah and now they don’t have that anymore so like okay well we’re not going to rebuild all that equipment just talked to one little spacecraft enter in the community oh no now is independent team of engineers decided hey they were previously working on old Apollo error magnetic tape reels because a lot of that stuff has disappeared or be written over but nASA has some of this stuff but they got rid of all the equipment to read it so they’ve been kind of working on creating the equipment needed to go back and look at it wow are you serious yeah so they recreated that kind of stuff they’re going back in there pulling out the data by creating the equipment needed to read the data the nasa has that’s amazing so they’re doing that and they said hey there’s kind of looking off the side and like hey there’s this satellite i bet we could do something with it so they started looking at you know how feasible how challenging would it be to actually for this group of engineers all by themselves to talk to the satellite and start doing it um controlling it they said you know it’s like we intended to do it so they went through and they did a crowdsourcing like okay everybody your dollars let’s see what we can do yeah so they estimated the cost of writing the software because they looked and they said okay well some of this equipment they could go out and they could dig up make a sort of cobble it together on their own and the rest of it they could make the computers themselves digitally recreate that so make the

Heather computer make the signal appear like it had been back in nineteen seventy six so that the satellite itself could you know hear them and talk back to them about it so I said okay well now hit to the point where it’s coming back towards Earth which is why the interest in this came back up again it’s not going to be back around this close to Earth for three or four decades so we only look that’s like okay we have a time window they needed to talk to it by the end of this month um because if they could talk to at the end of May then they can start doing minor adjustments and make it orbit earth again or you know in the in this area and they can maybe start looking at a different comet to search to go after so so 30 years of stuff they’re going back there trying to dig up documents and on this spacecraft because they don’t really have necessarily a lot of the stuff still there for the detail but NASA so they went to like the engineers who made that like going to their houses they’re like hey do you have it here this copies its own debts some of the people had copies of things that they went through some of it was um I think they were over to the public that you could go that I could just dig through so much you know programming and data to see what they could pull out from information about this satellite from that and then NASA also sort of gave them some limited you know open access for them to kind of go through now so we now you have the soft between software in the hardware they have they can now send those command and transmissions to this satellite they can actually understand it and they were able to take some of it in the hardware deeded and they were able to install it on the 305 era SIBO dish antenna so they’re able to get it on this big the deep space like one of the djs antennas and so well so they’re going through they have that they have there’s no actual computer on the spacecraft itself which actually makes it easier because that they have to directly command it there is no you know sending up a little programming this didn’t it’s directly do this it does that right Nell do this so it makes it easier on their part from that just because it has just send one command send one command listen to stuff coming back now NASA didn’t make any funding into this project mm-hmm they gave you know it’s like okay well you can talk to our people will talk to you you know yes you may try to talk to it and see what happens they wanted you know like well go see what the public actually is injured this sort of thing and obviously there was a lot of interest and actually hit you know their crowdsourcing milestone they hit a stretch reach so they could that’s so cool to use that kind of thing for this yeah there with some of it they were able to buy time off at the Deep Space Network this deep space tells communications network that nASA uses to go and talk to the voyagers and all those different things that are way out there they will to buy some time off of that and say we need some hours off this we’re going to pay for those hours and for the first time ever NASA actually signed an agreement it’s the non-reimbursable Space Act agreement which is really the first time NASA because everything it does it says stamp that’s ours forever any of the Apollo engines that haven’t recover from the bottom of the ocean everything still belongs to NASA and they say I will let you borrow this okay now in this specific case they said all right we’re going to spline a special agreement that means we had no plan to ever touch this again that it is you know out of our hands we didn’t care about any more you’re going to do something with it and so they’re they’re allowing this team to actually take over the whole project and move forward with it this is a really unique I’ve and I write may have never heard of anything like this well no because most of the time they’re going to use these satellite up they’re gonna use these probes up until the last minute mmhmm yeah until they you know crash into whatever it is I I will assume that have to almost runs out of power yeah I would think that after that from a budget standpoint even yeah well that’s that’s it too is you reach a point where it’s you know budgetary reason say hey there’s nothing there like there there’s a scare that you know oh my goodness won’t have money for the opportunity rover right yo it’s still there it’s solar panels are still you know getting power for the rover but happens if they run out of money then there’s nothing there it’s just sitting there yeah poor all alone in this case it was one of those things where it’s 20 30 years later you’re like huh that thing didn’t get turned off who forgot to rob like I’ve ever rats turn off the

light I ran into a few novell netware servers that are kind of like that no that’s that’s in the closet still running yeah somebody from yes I got to shut that down that’s pretty cool and it’s pretty neat how crowdfunding can play a role in that yeah so they’re actually they’re talking to it it’s happening like right now they talk to it on the 19th so they’re in the process of getting the final words out to say hey fire the thrusters so they’ve got a very specific set times where they need to fire the thrusters this specific moment that’s what said come over just barely either very slow-moving thing so they can adjust its orbit yeah then they’re going to be controlling a space probe that was sent into space in 1976 and given up for loss and crowdsourcing actually got it together and said hey we want to support science and we’re going to do this Hollywood should buy those rights to this story and then turn around and so evil genius who takes control of a whole fleet of abandoned satellites and turns them it back around on the earth it’s a great plot line what is it one tweet I got was like hey hackers grab and get right over satellite right something yeah yeah not quite not quite all right Heather well guess what let’s take a little while just a little pause right here you know this is the third anniversary of these I by program i wanted a fax about both side bite and the fo sho is they kind of were born from the fire that is jupiter at night and so kind of an exciting announcement that was made on today’s Linux unplugged next week a daily show is being launched on the Jupiter broadcasting network yeah yeah it’s crazy I know I know I don’t know what I was thinking but it’s called a get ready for this tech talk today how do you like that Tech Talk today and there’s more details about it in episode 42 of Linux unplug fine wine or sour ports episode 42 and it’ll be monday through thursday starting at nine a.m. pacific noon easter 7 p.m. gmt over JB live TV l btec news and things like that from the perspective of the Jupiter broadcasting community with a rotating cast of characters who will join me on the morning show so it should be live if all goes as planned on Monday June sex I think right I think that’s me check my calendar here yes no I’m sorry tune second not 66 is the friday so should start on Monday June second over JB live TV I’d love to have you come join me in the live stream and I’m hoping the 9am time works well for you because it’s nine on the west coast and it is noon at the lunch time and we should be able to have it out for your evening commute as well over to be broadcasting com there you go new show tech talk today launching next monday on the Jupiter broadcast network and Heather yes with that done it’s time for the news bite okay yes a little jb every single day exactly so what are we talking about in the news bite there’s new research from carnegie mellon university that shows that too much materials covering a classroom may end up destructing attention and learning and it’s hmmm so it makes complete sense to me and actually is to me does too i spent a lot of time in class looking at crap on the wall that I’d seen a hundred times yes well even now I have to watch out for what I have around my desk these researchers specifically went through they said all right we’re going to judge in their site you know in a highly decorated classroom and then take these 24 kindergartens of course we’re gonna just say that works on kindergarten students and not us as well course in laboratory classrooms six different introductory science topics science I said they weren’t familiar I facility went three lessons were taught in the heavily decorated classroom three with pretty much just blank walls they were showing that the kids learn in both types but they were more likely to be distracted being off task air quotes hmm uh no for behavior see in the decorated classroom almost thirty-nine percent of the time in the spare classroom twenty-eight percent of the time so there was definitely a ten percent kind of gap there whether they were more distracted doing off task they now they’re interested finding out something all the displays removed does that just sort of shift their attention elsewhere or what kind of is the proper balance of need some sort of decorations or something on there yeah because you don’t want to be like a drab dreary yeah that sounds just white walls is sad yeah exactly but so now there is sort of this

question as to what is the balance so i have it i can’t have just blank walls around my desk so i have a couple of things but you know there’s the things that kind of like are constant like moving have little batteries a little to talk that way and we mate i cannot have those on because if i have those type of things what I’m dad I’m like well I get like almost like hypnotized biases like something is there it’s too distracting yeah then you’re like that must go away that’s funny yeah I so it is that ballot so it is definitely a bounce cuz you don’t wanna go too far in the wrong direction that’ll be a bad thing and I don’t think any of us can blame our classroom well decorated wall know like it wasn’t that oh stop paying teaching teacher your pictures are too distracting it’s your fault you made your room to distribute cheerful yeah you know the teachers the rooms you love to go under the ones where they go all out on the decoration too Wow okay guess what the band just got hey let’s bring him in it cuz it’s time for the tube all right Heather what are we talking about it in the to bite news all right it’s last conversation about being distracted didn’t make you filled with like huh scientists have now demonstrated the feasibility of flying via bank and brain control was actually fairly good accuracy brain control hmm yes so it’s um dia EEG is attached to your head so it’s when those caps where it’s like all the little electric that’s been kind of reading brainwaves and they did it and they had six seven subjects in a flight simulator test everything from one person who had no experience whatsoever and they popped them all in there like all right sink the commands required to fly can loven would have the same type of thing that they would were have for a flying license for quick test now most of them were able to manage landing even of the really poor visibility hmm and so now they’re focusing on okay they were quite amazed that even the person who had no experience in a cockpit did fairly well but probably could have passed the test now we know that we don’t need any decorations on the you know in the cockpit because I’m gonna get distracted while flying and that wouldn’t be good but now they’re kind of looking at all right so look at control systems required because a lot of feedback nope I pilots can feel the resistance in the steering or know they need a specific amount of force for when the aircraft will come too large or when it’s shipped it that way or this way so trying to figure out okay what kind of feedback system can be make if it’s just using brain control so they’re kind of saying all right well what kind of feedback can we use to say hey the airplane is a very happy that what you’re doing right there but the fact that you might might be able to fit airplane via brain control means you need no one with a DD that’s for sure actually like oh wait wait wait I didn’t mean that i really was staying on task in my writing and you gotta wonder about that feedback system because what if it’s like yeah that pain in your butt that’s losing altitude and that when your when your arm itches that means you’re banking too far to the left you know that I yeah so you always kind of wonder like that you don’t actually have allergies so you’re like right shake you’re like oh no we’re banking to the left no we’re not we’re not resolved right well Heather I got a little warning for you here so you know here jb one we’ve got the side by two thousand i keep it right here next to me for you but it’s dedicated to side bite it is a little from a time passed and unfortunately we’ve done some rosin remodeling but there is a button here that’s flashy now if this is either a side by 2000 mind control device that works similar to that airplane thing only not quite the same way or it is viewer feedback so i’m gonna go ahead and press it Heather and I thought it was gonna wipe the memory of every listener for a second well glad that didn’t happen we do have some viewer feedback though don’t we we do on the twitters from Michael Palin we had pointing out that a story that Jupiter’s Great Red Spot is shrinking to these smallest size ever see oh bummer the recent had hubble space telescope’s operations actually confirm at the spot the Great Red Spot on Jupiter I said it the small sander it’s ever been measured at just under 10,000 250 miles now that’s over the time that we’ve been

able to see how mature astronomers have said hey we think there is a shrinkage where we’re located he was saying but there’s no the quote waistline the how wide it is of this of it was getting small she was becoming more circular even though because the north-south has not changed very much but so the amateur astronomers has been saying that a little while but now Hubble Space Telescope has specific over that time and in fact going back and using historical sketches eighteen hundreds they can sort of guesstimate that it was it that it was like 25,000 hmm overlooked over 25,000 miles and now it’s a little over ten thousand so so what a big difference here you’re saying is Jupiter’s going through climate change uh innocent science is ignoring that okay well there is some question as to what is going on to cause this storm to shrink so much Jim lying out yeah you know their new observations are showing that there are small little Eddie’s feeding into the Great Red Spot sure which could be responsible for some change by you know if it’s tweaking with internal dynamics of the of it is a giant storm it just like a giant hurricane if you start adding in various dynamics obviously that’s going to change that or um you know alter that speed in some way so it looks like exactly the speed where it’s angular momentum you know where those skaters of the pulling their arms and spins up even faster is the kind of same thing where they saying this storm is sort of shrinking a bit and spinning faster now which is causing which the faster winds helping to shrink it hmm or more the faster winds starting to help kind of give it a jump start again but this theory wears like well we’ve seen the Great Red Spot as long as people been looking at Jupiter now amateur astronomers have been kind of like hey it’s hard to see it’s not as exciting anymore and now it’s wondering where what at this rate is it going to be something that goes away we’ve always sort of seen it as this permanent storm this permanent spot on Jupiter pets everyone thinks yeah when you the creepy one of the creepiest things in the solar system in a way sometimes a little red spot drawn on it yeah but will it go away eventually is it just shrinking look Rogan is it how is it going to change it’s very very much taking it one day at a time and kind of actually looking very carefully at the situation and figure out what’s what’s going to happen with it I one who I got one more thing to treat you here now this is the update file on the side by 2,000 ago and trigger this what we get here whoa we update successful we have a little self update don’t we have it we do this week marks three years of sigh bite oh my goodness three years where did they go I know so yes started was it where did we start that was way back when you were doing Jupiter at night yes yeah and there was some Wednesday’s I think good something’s happening where you were only down to one host it was like a science science Wednesday sir science Wednesday yeah and then it kind of broke off on its own ever gave me was uh I was with Jeremy was it me it was virtual studio he episode 1 yeah he did a lot of input on that to where it was a lot of effort into video editing and cutting and putting in video it would take Jamie like a week to put together an episode as I bite yes and obviously that hit a bump hi Jeremy had to when he moved on and then it was you and you still be did still some video stuff it was much more condensed yeah one run through yeah keep it together yeah we we went from multiple tags to one take one take well I’m guys yellow you said it now you can’t tell you back yeah and then we move to yeah the video once a month and now we’re on the enhanced audio mmm just lets us go much faster also had a couple of Google Hangouts with Nikki yes I’m jeepers Summerside bite the Summerside nights when we took a little hiatus here on Jupiter broadcasting and every once in a while when there’s uh something happens with the schedules she’s able to hop in and pitch it yes like that so great to because we both get on google plus you can broadcast it and then you can publish it right to youtube yeah yeah that’s really nice you can’t close to that do you have links to those in the show notes by any chance uh those specific

episodes I don’t know I’m not sure they didn’t probably do some googling and find him yeah uh oh I did go back and I was interested no I used science is an adjective and out on a verb now now it’s happy science right science is left of this science that that feels like that was in the last probably 100 episodes or so right that started on slide by eight no way and it wasn’t actually in the show it was I remembered happening and then Jeremy um did some outtakes at the end and it was there that specific moment it was are you kidding hold on I gotta go find it that’s that’s great I’ll go right there it was uh I don’t know how much the setup is is we were talking about something he started singing let’s see cuz he released a thing and I wanted to cop in to tell me when it pops up there and it was beautiful it yeah science is rad there we go that there’s the old original set take note but you were saying that science is sad there it is Heather yep and there was like no so 28 yeah yeah that that was where it all started a service why I start having its own it was its own being it had its own emotions I like it I like this I think that guys like where did that come from was like oh yeah wow good fine how did you find that I was trying to remember it suddenly struck me I was like oh yeah now I had to go back forward to kind of I knew it wasn’t an apple take so I had to go through those first episodes and like click right to the end there’s no way i can remember something like that from episode a that’s I’m pretty impressed to be honest with you well I only remember because of the outtakes were yeah hilarious yeah yeah those are always maxed out I was like I remember I remember like cuz I ovary so over exaggerated I looking yeah and of course we’ve covered some really interesting science throughout the life of the show too oh yeah I mean we’ve seen some of the major things in a private space travel you know started off as just sort of this idea of them going hey I think we could do this to sort of engineering it testing it now we have SpaceX and virgin glaucous a sex is delivery thinks the space station fairly consistently they’re moving forward towards manned capsules so we can actually pay them to send people up to the space station themselves mm-hmm we’ve seen them the opportunity the opportunity rover is kind of keeps chugging along and chatted solar panels clean a couple of times and of course happy yes Robert yeah it’s you know it’s landing and confirmation of you know running and standing water and saying hey yes there were ancient habitable locations here and drilling into rocks now it’s continuing to go and I may have been slightly excited about that with the user name is Mars base it’s totally totally possible I’m unbiased oh sure of course of course here first we’ve seen a lot of other progress over the time something near drew our hearts is all the different Alzheimer’s research I just come about yep in all the steps forward and ideas all right these drugs help those drugs help let this is causing this part yeah that really feels like there’s been an acceleration there over the last couple years yeah we’ve seen the voyagers um leave the solar system with multiple times in there for real actually yes for realsies yes yeah all different exoplanet stuff that’s come out you know through the Kepler data watching little dips in the Starlight and even if Kepler isn’t yeah necessarily they’re all the data tons of back date is still there for us to go through you know it’s consistent to find new information about exoplanets going to pop up at least once a month that I’ll be able to see that and say hey look at that yeah you know all the different medical research about the senses where we’ve had recently about bringing hearing or all the different times where we’ve seen the eyes where chips on the I in them on the right hand the eyes to say sort of help people with senses that they may have lost I throw to achieve from for me that I mean your list very much echoes exactly what i would say except for i would potentially add you showing us some really interesting advances in robotics in both like a kinds that are hooked up to humans but also like the dead like that the animal kind oh yes boston dynamic yes yes and then those guys are crazy the other at the other story was kind of big was the Higgs boson possible confirmation uh yes that was huge okay i got them nobel in physics and it was you know it was is really amazing to see the guy who theorized it so many decades ago

saying being able to be there when they announce where the two teams were there they announced like we both see this same data which means it’s within them out uh within the error error it says hey we’re pretty sure this is here and it’s it’s a particle that looks very very much like it as the data went forward right until they started gearing the gig via large hadron collider down for the upgrade it was pretty much confirmed that yes as far as we know this is what it is and seeing the guys the two guys the theorized it so many decades ago they were just there that you’re seeing yeah yeah it does actually see it like Victor you don’t like I never thought that they’d actually prove this true or not in my lifetime right right and now I’m here to see it yeah oh I see you also have faster-than-light neutrinos down here on this list yes when there was that even you have really crazy breaking science and it was had the brief story of hey we think yeah neutrinos were quite faster than the speed of light and everyone was kind of frozen as to how excited to be or how skeptical to be right and in the end they’re skeptical slide one there was you know some hardware issues but that really happens with that science yeah you know you think you know you get some really good results and you know often in the lab like wow this is really good yeah now i’m suspicious yeah let you go back and have to look at everything but for the shining moment you excited and you’re like is this too good to be true that’s why sighs retest the new rotisserie test figure out it’s a good lesson know what’s good what’s going on but those even those bright moments were interesting to kind of remind me of we’re all the templates we’ve gone where we’ve seen mm-hmm mm-hmm and it seems to be a really good time to be observing all of this that’s what’s been so great about how are you 32 episodes of it is we’ve chronicled some really kind of historical stuff in a way now it’s kind of neat have that back catalogue of like yeah we talked about that yeah like going back I’m like I remember that yeah well you know what Heather we just earned ourselves a ding so there we go so there you go and thank you everybody who’s out been along with us for the three year journey now Heather while we were talking about one of our favorite science stories maybe we should continue along that threat should we head over to Mars and see what’s up with our favorite Rover let’s go and liftoff of the Atlas 5 with curiosity Oh okay Heather how is our favorite Rover alrighty we have drilled into the rock we’ve time to talk about the last couple weeks we’ve actually you know have some imaging shows the close-ups of it and the kind of mediator area surrounding it mm-hmm yes that area surrounding wants a great one yeah so now they’ve kind of looked at it like okay well we have it we actually filled in one of the holes with some of the cuttings from the other one now they actually have their kind of looking at all the results that they have from the laser not bad you know fresh bore holes at their laser for spectrometer for that so they’re really looking at that though what they found really interesting as we’ve been saying is that they drilled into it the surface of the rock was fairly read but they pulled out was this dark gray material yeah which is very different so I made a saint okay well that’s definitely something to look forward to that we’re going to have something very different from what we’ve seen before now if pulverized and they’ve sips and paint samples they’re on board ready to go to the chemical analysis and compositional analysis now they looked at everything and said all right but what they saw they decided one drilling at this location was enough so they’re not going to be drilling other rocks where they were now so they’ve got all the you know they’ve got scoops of samples from inside the rock they’re going to start driving to their next location while and then start doing the the testing sort of as they drove is what happened kind of the last times when they did drilling they they kept a little Kythera their cup of dirt and they kept driving they’re like okay now dump a little bit of this into those samples and keep going so it really allows them a long time to they don’t have to stop and do all the research right where they are they keep driving to the next location I mean which is their next school is fairly far away where the offer is about two and a half miles four kilometres from where they started now they still have that much farther to go in order to get to the foothills of Mount sharp were they white trying to go to which is sometime later this year they

are expecting to reach it so between here and later this year they’re going to be doing a lot of long-term driving possibly some occasional stopping and you know they might look something or no laser something for spectrometry random random laser threadably lays shoot lasers of things because everyone talks to me is like hey can you give me your over with the laser I need the one on the lazy like that yeah yeah they believe the laser is very important to them but as of right now their plan is to get for no more drillings until they hit the the foothills of the mountain of course they might they might find something here there to actually decide to drill but the problem they’ll definitely found a couple of spots that they want to stop take pictures of take the little arm go out take some close up pictures of various rocks so we shall see what happens but as of right now we’re kind of in the we’re in the driving mode okay we’re gonna be over the next probably month or two we’re going to be getting little bits and pieces of the analysis it comes back and there’s probably going to be a long drive of driving right so yeah lot of just sort of yes we’re continuing on hey we saw something cool over there we’ve made out of it yeah I just sometimes you gotta travel you gotta try another alright well very good and heather has some links to some of those pictures if you’re listening to the audio version you want to see some of the holes that the little Rover has been drilling you can just go click the links over in the show notes all right Heather stand by getting the time machine because we got to travel back are you ready I’m ready oh my god I don’t know where that would have left is if you would have fallen out I kind of get the seat belts fixed so this weird I’m sorry the time machine takes us back 95 years ago may 29th 1919 Heather what happened this week in science Einstein’s theory of relativity is proved well that’s a big one yeah five years ago yep a solar eclipse premiere permitted observations of the bending of starlight passing through the grad Sun’s gravitational field so that you know the moon was directly in front of a sudden which means they could observe stars on either side of it now through some calculations they will say hey the lights you say the light itself had been bent by the Sun’s gravity which is exactly as Albert Einstein had predicted now there were several expeditions that went to Brazil off the west coast of Africa and various locations that said so they all made measurements of these stars very close to the Sun during the solar eclipse and all of them were able to see these same results so that was the key point of the theory of relativity that said gravity is affected by energy or by so am I grabbed you know gravity energy and light they all had to interact with each other hmm so solar eclipse is always a is a bright moment that makes a lot of difference that’s about history they said oh my goodness things are happening but in this case it actually proved a major theory well there you go there you go congratulations mr. Einstein 95 years ago and thanks for celebrating with us on the side by anniversary too that’s very cool all right well let me recalibrate the side by 2,000 so that way we can look up into the sky this week all right this week on May that 28 Wednesday we’ve got the new moon specifically at 214 eastern daylight on Friday may the 30th about 20 to 30 minutes after sunset look low in the West and Northwest and you can see the look the hairline crescent of the moon you see my cuisine mercury just to its rice now their own food is set fairly quickly so don’t feel bad if you miss them but you can look far to the upper left you’ll you have more time to see Jupiter come on on Saturday May the 31st look about an hour after sunset now Jupiter’s going to be directly to the because it needs the upper right of the moon in the early evening and on Sunday hour after sunset it moves through left and slightly higher so it’s all going to be kind of in various positions to the moon as the week progresses about an hour after select sunset on the whole this week we’ve got mercury at Twilight it’s gonna be at his highest point in the sky for this entire year for the mid northern latitudes but it’s going to be fading fairly quickly as Twilight deepens look to the west northwest low it’s going to be fading it’s going to be dipping out of the horizon it’s not a very exciting plan to see and it’s kind of had its moment the Sun and it’s heading to a non-visible static now

Venus our morning star in the dawn is low to the east during the dawn it’s going to be moving to its highest point in the South around late Twilight now Mars is at its highest point in the south at late Twilight and it sets to the west about three or four am dance a big star jupiter at twilight is in the West sinking during evening setting around 11 or 12 that’s going to be on the far side of the Sun from us right now so it’s actually at its minimum parents eyes so it’s kind of its smallest diameters we can see it right also key look at your telescope is going to be fairly small Saturn is in the evenings as well appearing in these South eats sort of moving to its highest position in the South about 11 or 12 p.m. we have a lot of different things happening mostly in the Twilight in the evenings yeah yeah well there you know what if you wanted to catch any of that I got a pro tip for you this is something I only tell people who listen to all of side bites so this makes you a side bite expert if you go over to Jupiter broadcasting com and click on site bite 132 guess what all of Heather’s note with extra links and everything right there including what’s up in the sky it’s all listed for you you can grow through there if you see something and what was that I’ll go look in the show notes boom Bob’s your uncle makes you look smart at parties I’ve heard a couple met that way and got married a couple of years ago and I’ve had a kid see what we’ve done over the run of the side bite show I can’t confirm if that’s true or not but I’ve heard that so i’m alright how there’s anything else we want to cover this week yeah I could think of alright well very good well I’d like to invite you to get a hold of us go over to Jupiter broadcasting com click the contact link and choose side by from the drop down or even better you can tweet right at Heather just JB underscore Mars underscore base on the Twitter all right Heather well thanks for the great show thank you and thanks for a great three years exactly alright everyone thanks so much return this week’s episode of side bite we’ll see you right back here next week
