    Shorty's Well to Telescope Peak | IIAWT

    in Sports

    It's been called the "most unique mountaineering route in the world" and also one of the "toughest mountaineering routes in the lower 48 U.S. states" and it's no wonder - this route gains more than 11,300 feet over about 15 miles. The route starts at Shorty's Well (elevation: 262 ft. below sea level) and culminates at the summit of Telescope Peak (elevation: 11,049 ft.), which also happens to be the highest point in Death Valley. In this episode of IIAWT, Chris and Matt spend an hour talking about a recent expedition in which they attempted this very route.

    Activating Compassion Radio - Evolution of Humanity In Astrology

    in Spirituality

    Jesse Interviews Stephen Lewis - Analytic and Financial Astrologer.  Stephen practices a hybrid of modern spiritual and Medieval Judicial astrology based on Germanic and Celtic paganism, Romano-Christianity and Arabic/Islamic Science.  He considers himself a normal guy with an insatiable inquisitiveness; who appreciates the ironic, the contradictory, and the downright bizarre.  He likes to explore metaphysical questions using techniques of occult microscopy and occult macroscopy, the microscope and the telescope. Because myriad infinities exist, both invisible and immense.  He feels that we can understand what is likely to come to be through exploring what has been; while standing in the present.  We will be looking at Stephen's work in Astrology as has surfaced by exploring the writings of different cultures and times.

    NASA: The Past, Present and Future of Space Exploration

    in Science

    In 1962, JFK challenged the nation to "achieving the goal, before the decade is out, of landing a man on the moon and returning him safely to the earth."

    And guess what? We did it!

    NASA has achieved great things. Before Apollo 11 went to the moon, there was the Gemini program, and the Mercury program before that. After Apollo, there was the Space Shuttle and the International Space Station. The Hubble telescope. As of this writing a spacecraft is on its way to Pluto.

    Join us with our special guest Kathie H., who recently attended the Goddard Center's State Of NASA event for social media mavens. Kathie will share her experiences with us and talk about the history and future of space travel.

    "We choose to go to the moon. We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win, and the others, too."
     - John F. Kennedy, Rice University Speech, 09/12/1962

    What does it stand for? 
    Why is central place everyone who wants to be a movie star? 

    Today we look at the esoteric and metaphysical nature of Hollywood. 

    “The druids were tree worshippers, especially the oak. The holly was their most sacred symbol because it was sacred to mother Holle or Hel, the [Norse] goddess of the underworld. The druids was conquered by the Romans as was Jersalem, and all there where mixed together from western christianity. 

    The origin of the television set was heavily shrouded in both spiritualism and the occult, writes author Stefan Andriopoulos in his new book Ghostly Apparitions. In fact, as its very name implies, the television was first conceived as a technical device for seeing at a distance: like thetelephone (speaking at a distance) and telescope (viewing at a distance), the television was intended as an almost magical box through which we could watch distant events unfold, a kind of technological crystal ball.

    The Kerri Edelman Show presents Cinematic Hard Rock Band Starset

    in Rock Music

    In the early hours of New Years Day 2013, a radio astronomer at the Allen Telescope Array in Northern California discovered a mysterious signal emanating from a star within the Ophiuchus Constellation. Contained within the signal was a Message--of human origin--foretelling the details of man's imminent demise. The Message was brought to The Starset Society, who quickly realized the importance of its immediate publication. Risking extreme danger, The Starset Society commissioned a group of musicians and scientists to assist them in spreading the knowledge to a broader audience. This group became known simply as STARSET. STARSET describes their music as cinematic rock. The band originate from Columbus, Ohio and was formed by lead singer Dustin Bates of Downplay. The band has released two singles including 'My Demons' and 'Carnivore. In the summer of 2014, the band released their debut album ‘Transmissions,’ which is now available.

    Modern Problems: On Comet Landings and Battery Life

    in Technology

    Hosts Phil Bowermaster and Stephen Gordon discuss the triumph that is this week's historic landing of the Philae space probe on comet 67P, and the odd circumstances by which unwanted shade and low battery life might cut the mission short. 

    In an oddly related story, the Hubble Telescope has just celebrated its 25th anniversary.

    In other news, scientists are doing creepy mind-control experiments that really work (and that perhaps aren't all that creepy -- or technically even "mind control," come to think of it.)

    PLUS -- will it soon be possible for anyone to have a young mind -- no matter how old they are?
