Space Lettuce?? Let Us Space!! >>

EPISODE #222

AIRED: 01-03-2020

After a run of amazing guests over the last few weeks, we have let the lettuce-pile pile. So today we don our bibs, grab the proper fork, apply a dash of Iron, and dig in whole-heartedly! Ok…maybe half-heartedly. Sheesh, ok, ok, you got me…no heart at all here!! Just lettuce. And FIRE!! Lots of SPACE FIRE!! Walt predicts that in 2020, Space Fire will become the NEW Space Lettuce! We shall see…
–Zack wants to drop magnets…spin ’em, too. Sounds exciting!! But, Scientism beat ya to the drop, Zack! French physicists have done an experiment: the researchers buckled two metal cylinders inside a satellite called Microscope, launched them into low-Earth orbit, and measured how the cylinders fell around Earth for two years. Inside the satellite, they used glorified seat belts to secure the cylinders, each made of a different metal alloy. As the satellite hurtled 440 miles overhead, the smart seat belts measured the force required to keep each cylinder in place. Should one cylinder require more force to stay still, that would indicate its free-fall acceleration was faster than its neighbor’s. If a deviation in gravity existed, surely this years-long drop would reveal it. But it didn’t. The physicists found that the two cylinders fell at identical rates, within two-trillionths of a percent of each other—confirming Einstein’s theory of gravity yet again with almost 100 times more precision than any prior experiment. “There was no deviation from general relativity,” says Hees. That was kind of a bummer. Man.
–Iron Snow?? Contradictions between seismic data and existing models of our planet’s molten insides have been hard to solve. So geologists are now reconsidering the existence of a fuzzy zone of mineral ‘snow’ gently falling from the bottom of the outer core. “Time will tell whether the iron-snow model of our core might have merit. It’s not just of academic interest either; we’re desperate to know how the engines deep under the surface churn out a magnetic field, feed volcanoes, and produce earthquakes.” “…we’re desperate to know how the engines deep under the surface churn out a magnetic field…” Ummmm…
–FLAMES! In SPACE!!! The Expedition 61 crew explored a variety of space phenomena including how flames spread in weightlessness. Commander Luca Parmitano of ESA (European Space Agency) set up the unique video camera this morning to record him and Koch as they worked on combustion research. The duo burned acrylic and fabric samples in the Microgravity Science Glovebox to help scientists understand how flames expand in space to increase fire safety. Is that smoke I smell…or the next trend in rinse & repeat space drivel?
–We lost Syd “Blade Runner” Mead and Jack “I’m Just A Bill” Sheldon over the last week. They will be missed.
–We get a call from Angelo, the trucker, who has a Sasquatch living in his backyard eating his Mandarin oranges. He then proceeds to easily switch gears when he realizes he has called-in to a flat-centric show and proceeds to apply a smacking in his own right! Non-globularists in the house!
–We get our next-to-last call from Johnathon From Jersey. We touch on spoken tongues, God-like powers are granted then rescinded, and Zack craftily slips out of JFJ’s snare!

Jonathan From Jersey, by way of Florida, literally surprises us today…mid-sentence! He brings a lot of ideas about our vision, cameras, this construct we exist within…a full bowl of goodness!! Dig in!!! –Zack had a BLAST at Flatoberfest!! Hear some highlights!! ...

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?? Our Line-producer The Alan Holman notices after the halfway mark that TFR is playing a repeat…huh??? He gets on it, contacts the technicians, and we hope to see this show in the...

“You ain’t from ’round yere, are ya, boy?” We have a bit of a dust-up in chat this morning, what with new folks finding fault in our funk and all! We make peace, naturally, (it IS Ironworx, after all) and even nab an upcoming guest, who promises a life-changing presentation for a future (SOON!) show....

We hit 3 years and 300 episodes at roughly the same time, give or take an ep or two, or 14(?), and since time is like cheddar cheese, let’s all melt together for 300 more, what say? Have we smoothed it out any in all this time? Naaah!! Sauce and starch, babe, sauce and starch!...

No, it isn’t a cat-circus sideshow. Well…not on purpose, anyway. Daz Tartarian has arrived with a vengeance this morning, bringing more energy in one call than coffee’s sweet, jittery embrace. Did you miss the RESET??? Bitch better have his money! Daz shows us yet again that even though the CONtrollers may have created this beast...
