AIRED: 02-11-2020

Get your star maps, right here! Well, maybe not a map to the stars, exactly…but our friend Elly has mapped out our friggin’ solar system pretty dang well! She got it ALL, every speck and sparkle and spin, the comets and asteroids and moon moons and—wait, where are the moon moons??? Eleanor?? In this stunning visualization, (see pic) biologist Eleanor Lutz painstakingly mapped out every known object in Earth’s solar system (>10km in diameter), hopefully helping you on your next journey through space. Yes, I realize I typed “biologist”…moving on…

–TO MOON OR NOT TO MOON? —NASA puts a price on a 2024 Moon landing—$35 billion…Zack breaks it down to see how much per second NASA is stealing from us this year.
–But SpaceX is planning on beating them to the punch. May, beotches!! This May!! We now know the working date that SpaceX is aiming for with that crucial mission: May 7. To be clear, that’s very much a working date and the actual mission could slip either later, or even earlier, according to Ars Technica’s Eric Berger who first reported the timeline…so…I mean….bets, anyone?
–After announcing their reunion following a nine-year hiatus, Rage Against the Machine have mapped a 2020 world tour. Your anger is a gift.
–V-GER2. Back to life. AGAIN! 43 years. In space. 11.5 Billion miles away. NASA has a hella remote, dude!
–Moon myths busted, tabletops dusted, and science…not trusted! Grab the toilet paper, bend over, and look at the moon between your legs.
–Over the past few weeks, local governments and agricultural drone owners have been utilizing drones to spray disinfectant, but they’ve also found other new uses. Some are using drones to disperse public gatherings and issue warnings over speakers.

We wish James Randi farewell; we hear a Flat commercial, sorta, kinda, not really; we learn that in space no one can…well, ANYTHING, because, you know, the fakery and what have you; we find out from Father NDT that we might maybe perhaps sorta-kinda die…or not; we share a new Truthpaper (see link), and we...

A refreshingly fresh show this morning, with 3 happy hosts and a very chatty chat filled with lots of goodies…but is it ON??
