There is so much to say about our time with David Becker. We first met at Soot Bull Jeep in Los Angeles for some Korean BBQ, and ever since he has expanded our minds and provided a completely new perspective on what it really means to play music. 

Would love to hear your thoughts and musical insights as well! Leave us a comment below.

As the weaponization of space accelerates, the U.S. Space Force has begun rolling out an arsenal of ground-based weapons, designed to jam Russian or Chinese communication satellites in the opening hours of a conflict – without any kinetic engagement or producing space junk. 

This is a public departure from the Space Force defensive posture, to an offensive one. 

Known, “Meadowland” the device is a next generation weapon using open architecture software systems to constantly upgrade as new satellites and frequencies come online. 

Supporters for a weapons-free space believe Meadowland can be viewed by other nations as inflammatory and lead to an escalation in the targeting of space assets. But this isn’t just about the Military, it’s also a commercial issue.

Whoever wins the next space race will have the strategic and economic advantage not for decades, but generations” – Micah Walter-Range of Caelus Partners

According to Space Force officials, Russia’s test launch of an anti-satellite missile on April 15th is (quote) “Further proof of Russia’s hypocritical advocacy of outer-space-arms-control proposals designed to restrict the capabilities of the United States while clearly having no intention of halting their counter-space weapons programs.”

And it’s not just Russia. India has already shot down a satellite, France is arming them and China has already launched an observation array that can identify a face…from space. 

So which is better? A good offense? Defense, or both?

Billion Dollar Space Rocks

Flight Director

"There is superconductivity in the sky" and it's worth trillions! An incredible discovery inside one of the world's largest meteorites has unleashed an unexpected space race to every NEO (Near Earth Object)

The Mundrabilla Meteorite is one of the largest space rocks ever found on Earth. Weighing in at a massive 22 tonnes

Fragments of this meteorite have been studied for over a century, and recently, a team of scientists tested the specimen with magnetic field modulated microwave spectroscopy, by putting tiny samples into a cavity filled with microwaves and an oscillating magnetic field, then cooling it. 

Simply put, they were scanning the rock to see if conducts electricity…And to their surprise. It did. 

One of the study’s lead authors, told Gizmodo

“The big takeaway is there is superconductivity in the sky, naturally occurring.” 

If indium-tin-lead alloys are common, asteroids have significant value

Companies are alreadli I y cataloging near Earth objects for potential profit. The top 10 asteroids judged “most cost effective” — that is, the easiest to reach and to mine, subtracting rocket fuel and other operating costs, is around $1.5 trillion

So far, only two companies on the planet to have gone public with asteroid-mining business plans – Planetary Resources and Deep Space Industries. Unfortunately, both have been acquired by companies with a more, Earthly vision. 

Japan however, has been operating around Ryugu for the last year and a half, with an orbiting craft, tiny rovers and recently bombed the surface to study its contents. 

Coincidentally, this particular asteroid has a projected value of 30 Billion, according to Asterank, and the #1 most cost effective target.

Officially, the mission is looking for data on how the solar system formed. Unofficially, it will help us understand if there are useful…and valuable metals clumped together at the heart of an asteroid, as some theorize. 

If so, it’s game on for asteroid prospectors.
