    Matsyanyaaya: The New CHIPS Bill Raises More Questions than it Answers— Arjun GargeyasIn the last week, the US Senate decided to advance a bill to promote and support semiconductor chip manufacturing in the country. The bill, known as the CHIPS Act, is an extension to the previous year’s legislation passed by the Senate which approved a $250 billion bill to reinforce US chipmaking to compete with the growing clout of China. With the global chip shortage receding and the production getting back to pre-pandemic levels, the US government pushed the bill through with the intention of improving the manufacturing capabilities of the country in the semiconductor industry. With China running its foundries at full-scale even during the height of the pandemic, the state has managed to slowly increase its market share in the global semiconductor manufacturing ecosystem. A recent Bloomberg report showcases how the last four quarters have been dominated by Chinese semiconductor firms and their operations. This has raised alarms among the Western states regarding the reduction in influence and market share in the semiconductor domain. But how much can the CHIPS act achieve the goals and objectives that the US government intends to? Will there be any unintended consequences and unfavourable effects that might arise from the act itself?Subsidies to increase manufacturing output? The CHIPS bill seeks to facilitate the semiconductor manufacturing ecosystem in the country through increased subsidies and financial incentives for the domestic players. Considering the multifaceted benefits of improved chip manufacturing capacity, the US government looks to provide subsidies worth $52 billion to domestic semiconductor companies through the CHIPS bill.One of the main reasons behind the advancement of the CHIPS bill is to reduce manufacturing dependencies on Asian semiconductor manufacturers and increase domestic manufacturing output. Another objective of the bill is to ensure self-sufficiency in the supply of semiconductor chips in case of another global chip shortage. But can subsidies translate into an increase in manufacturing? Historically, it's noticed that in technology sectors, pumping in money and favourable industrial policies cannot always translate into necessary outcomes. This is especially true for the semiconductor industry. A case in point is China itself. The Chinese government has provided a plethora of incentives, subsidies and even financed companies with the hope of improving their semiconductor manufacturing output. However, even its major firm, Semiconductor Manufacturing International Company (SMIC) took over two decades to make a mark in the industry. Currently, it still lags behind industry giants such as Intel and Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC). Though the CHIPS bill has the potential to positively impact semiconductor manufacturing in the country, the government should not imagine that this would completely insulate the US from supply chain dependencies. This might cover the domestic demand to an extent but international dependency will still remain. TSMC itself is building a new fab in Arizona looking to branch out from Taiwan. Manufacturing equipment still remains an issue with the need to import certain equipment from abroad. Also, there is the caveat of the bill stating how semiconductor firms would not be allowed to have any Chinese investments in their company if they benefit from the subsidies provided by the bill. Restrictions over the import and export of semiconductor products to China is also included when availing the benefits of the new legislation. The CHIPS bill will help spur semiconductor manufacturing in the country and cater to its domestic demand to an extent. But, expecting the bill to help the US attain self-sufficiency in the supply chain remains a futile expectation. Fab vs Fabless Another aspect of this legislation is the division of benefits and subsidies. The current CHIPS bill benefits the firms that have the capability to design and manufacture their own semiconductor products. This includes Intel which has the fabrication potential. The bill provides subsidies to build fabrication facilities and provides investment tax credit to purchase tools for use inside their factories.However, the entire industry is not happy with this. Fabless firms such as NVIDIA, AMD and Qualcomm have expressed disappointment at the legislation. Fabless firms are those semiconductor companies that design their products but outsource their manufacturing to Asian counterparts. The new bill does not have any direct benefits for fabless firms as they do not build foundries or buy equipment. Such firms have argued this would help just Intel and is more of a rent-seeking opportunity for Intel to dominate the market. Unfair competition between the fab and fabless firms can result in the government choosing winners (in this case, Intel) is what the other companies are saying. These fabless firms actually support an earlier version of the FABS Act (introduced earlier in the House of Representatives) which provides tax credit on both manufacturing and chip design activities giving benefits to both the type of semiconductor firms. This version of the bill was also supported by the Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA). Though not officially opposing the bill, fabless semiconductor firms have questioned the impact of huge sums of money supporting their competitors.Finally, the fact that the US has the most number of semiconductor fabrication facilities in the world can also hamper the distribution of the subsidies. Will the financial incentives be proportional to the market share of the company or will it support smaller manufacturers also? These are questions that the bill might have to address before finally getting President Joe Biden’s final signature.Antariksh Matters: Space Dreams and Ground Realities— Aditya RamanathanThe Indian government may look to space tourism to sustain its human spaceflight programme. In a response to a Rajya Sabha question, the minister of state for science and technology said India was developing a homegrown capability to support space tourism. According to the minister, this capability would be developed via the Gaganyaan human spaceflight programme.Singh’s comments come even as the government has acknowledged delays in the Gaganyaan programme, which was originally planned to be launched in 2022, to mark 75 years of India’s independence. That deadline has now been pushed to 2024. Besides the formidable technical challenges involved in any human spaceflight programme, Gaganyaan was also set back by the pandemic, which forced ISRO to scale back operations. Russia’s war with Ukraine will likely add to the difficulties, since Russia’s space agency, Roscosmos, which trained an initial batch of four Indian Air Force cosmonauts, has been heavily sanctioned by Western states. “Abort Missions”Long before any space tourists (or for that matter, cosmonauts) take off on an Indian launch vehicle, there will come a series of tests. The first of these will be a so-called “abort mission,” slated for September and December of 2022. Having already tested the human-rated HS2000 rocket booster in May, ISRO will now conduct uncrewed tests of the survival systems. According to reporting in The Indian Express:‘For the abort missions, the space agency has developed test vehicles that can send the systems up to a certain height, simulate failure, and then check the escape system. Gaganyaan’s escape system was designed with five “quick-acting” solid fuel motors with a high burn rate propulsion system, and fins to maintain stability. The crew escape system will separate from the crew module by firing explosive nuts.’The next steps would be to integrate a crew module and an onboard “Onboard Launch Vehicle Health Management System” along with other elements. As ISRO chief S. Somanath recently concluded in an interview, the human-ready launch system “is yet to see the final shape”.Creating an LEO EconomyIndia’s ambitious next step for human spaceflight is to launch its own space station. Such a space station is to orbit at altitudes of 300-400 km above sea level and have more than one module. However, Singh’s statement about space tourism is a reminder than human spaceflight missions are expensive and that states - and private companies - need to find ways to recoup their costs. The Gaganyaan project alone has a price tag of INR9,000 crores (about $1.13 billion). Sending Indians into space on a regular basis will cost many times more. Other spacefaring nations, in particular, the United States and China, have recognised these realities and are seeking to create self-sustaining low Earth Orbit (LEO) economies. While the International Space Station (ISS) is slated to be deorbited in January 2031, the US is promoting the creation of an ecosystem of privately built and operated space stations to replace it. The US space agency NASA has already selected and commenced funding of three proposed space stations: those by Nanoracks, Blue Origin, and Northrop Grumman. While it is possible that some of these stations will fail to work or fail to make money, the very process of designing, building, and operating them will help develop both the technologies and the institutional experience required for a vibrant LEO economy. India remains far behind the world’s leading spacefarers in these efforts. To send Indians into space on a regular basis will ultimately require more than space tourism - it will require a thriving private space industry and international collaboration.Our Reading Menu[Article] Artificial Intelligence Regulation by Mariano-Florentino Cuéllar and Aziz Z.

    Brad West will have to eat the same food, do the same exercise, contain and restrict his social circles, conduct similar experiments, tasks, and basically copy everything his twin brother Brent will do…while in space…for more than 500 days… simulating the same amount of time it will take for humans to get to Mars- and helping to prepare humans to explore Mars.  Why would Brad and Brent do this? It's all part of the proposed “Twin Orbit Study” that you're about to discover right here, on the Casual Space Podcast.   The commercialization of space (SpaceX, Axiom Space, Blue Origin) brings new opportunities to study astronauts, including identical twins, on industry‐led space stations with unprecedented detail.  Extremely long‐duration microgravity will be the new normal when we travel into deep space, starting with Mars, and our success will be a test of health endurance in several respects. First, given the great distances, there will be very limited support from Earth once the mission begins. Second, the space weather (and radiation) is an order of magnitude more challenging. Third, the behavioral and cognitive challenges for such long missions will place an unprecedented strain on the crew. Although NASA, ESA, JAXA, ROSCOSMOS, and others are building a large knowledge base to address these challenges through missions on the International Space Station, very few crew have been studied in weightlessness for durations over six months, and more data from longer missions is critically needed.   Which makes for a perfect opportunity for The Twin Orbit study team, who are proposing a brand new, long‐duration Twins Study (building from the NASA Twins Study), and will work to accomplish four main goals:  Conduct Scientific Research for Biomedical Discovery and Testing New Hypotheses  Develop and Deploy New Technologies for Crew Health and Mission Maintenance  Develop Crew Health Operating Procedures Applicable for Long‐duration and Deep Space Missions  Inspire the Next Generation of Explorers   Learn More About Twin Orbit here: https://www.twinorbit.com/   About Brent West, in his own words: “It was the Cosmos TV series that initially captured my interest...I saw the first episode in high school in the late 1980's, and since that time I have always been fascinated with all-things space.  I knew I wanted to be an astronaut after I saw the movie Apollo 13 in the summer of 1995. I focused on my purpose and what I wanted to do and be involved with. At the time, I was a young LTjg (Lieutenant Junior Grade) onboard my first submarine, USS PINTADO (SSN-672). Brent West, Commander, U.S. Navy, earned his master's degree in Aerospace Engineering from University of Michigan in 2001 and worked in the Space Physics Research Laboratory as a student research assistant to help design a small student-led satellite project.  Brent also worked as a flight controller at Johnson Space Center from 2001 – 2003 in ECLSS (Environmental Control and Life Support Systems and earned his PhD in Physics from George Mason University in 2012, studying X-ray pulsars.   About Brad West: Brad West graduated from Winnebago High School in Winnebago, Illinois in 1990. He attended Illinois State University where he received his Bachelor of Science degree in sociology in 1994 and a Master of Science degree in education administration in 1996. Soon after receiving his master's degree, Brad moved to Richmond, Virginia to work as a Career Systems Manager/Advisor at Virginia Commonwealth University. He moved to Orlando, Florida in the spring of 1998, at the behest of a best friend who was working at Disney, and took employment in information technology at the Universal Orlando Resort. He loved the atmosphere and the energy of Universal and Orlando and worked there until the spring of 2004.Brad was accepted into the Doctor of Philosophy program in Higher Education Administration at the University of Florida in 2004. Upon starting the program, he worked as a graduate assistant in the Graduate School under the supervision of Associate Dean of the Graduate School. There, he became enamored with the many fields of graduate and doctoral education. After finishing program coursework, he worked several years in information technology at the University of Florida. Doctoral candidacy followed, and ultimately obtained a PhD in Higher Education Administration in 2013 with a focus on factors that influence doctoral time-to-degree in graduate education. Today, Brad is living in Southern Florida and working in information technology for a large national health care system. He enjoys traveling, visiting friends in the Florida keys, music, sports, anything NASA, and meeting new people.    About Chris Mason Dr. Christopher E. Mason is a geneticist and computational biologist who has been a Principal Investigator and Co-investigator of many NASA missions and projects. He is a Professor at Weill Cornell Medicine, with affiliate appointments at the Meyer Cancer Center, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, the Information Society Project (ISP) at Yale Law School, and the Consortium for Space Genetics at Harvard Medical School.   Here's what to do next:    Check out Chris's new book; The Next 500 Years: Engineering Life to Reach New Worlds  https://www.amazon.com/Next-500-Years-Engineering-Worlds/dp/0262543842/ref=asc_df_0262543842/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=533430521017&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=10374932519418788990&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=1028099&hvtargid=pla-1424157036884&psc=1    Reach out here with questions; info@twinorbit.com

    On this episode of the On the Balcony podcast, Michael Koehler welcomes Lauren Lyons to chat about chapter four of Ron Heifetz's legendary book. As an engineer and manager at SpaceX, NASA, and Blue Origin, she knows a lot about managing the expectations of her team and working towards change. Michael and Lauren open up the episode by talking about authority relationships as an exchange. As Heifetz puts it, “Authorities serve as repositories for our worries and aspirations, holding them if they can, in exchange for the powers we give them.” Lyons relates this to her professional experience working with two different generations of aerospace engineers. She's learned how to navigate her own biases, what it means to unlearn and relearn, and the importance of being vulnerable. For the remainder of the episode, Koehler talks to his coach Judit Teichert about his experience learning about his country's past and sharing it with others. The pair close the episode on a positive note about courage. Michael recalls feeling fearful before chatting with others about his family and Germany's history of injustice. He came to realize , that courage is fear's antidote.  The Finer Details of This Episode: Authority as a relationship : trust and power in exchange for services The bucket metaphor: Carrying other people's waters Managing expectations New and heritage space Vulnerability Unlearning and relearning Lyons' adaptive work in the aerospace industry German post-WWII leadership Why courage is fear's antidote Quotes: “These were problems that did not just have technical components that could be fixed and solved with expertise. They were adaptive in nature, and required learning, unlearning, or relearning.” “We learn about the role that good authority can play when people are confronted with adaptive challenges, but also how limiting it can be.” “I am an engineer. I have a predisposition to look at things very technically. I work in a very technical industry, and that's how we do things. But I'm also a student of this Heifetz methodology. And once you learn it, you can't unlearn it.” “Authorities serve as repositories for our worries and aspirations, holding them, if they can, in exchange for the powers we give them” “You took it all on yourself. And it can be so seductive to do that, because people are looking to you as the authority figure, especially in these types of organizations where change is needed.” “You'll have engineers that are used to the heritage space way of doing things, you know. They're used to having very clear directions, they're used to a schedule that's very clear, and this is my budget…But what the new space world has taught us is maybe those aren't the right requirements; maybe we question those requirements. Maybe the schedule can be even faster than what we've been doing. Maybe we can skip that part altogether. And being a lead or a leader of a team, that's wrestling with that challenge.” “That is what coaching is often about: creating new awareness, trying other things, and capturing the learning.“ “Germans have made it acceptable to talk about the past to integrate the past into our current DNA, sort of to increase our own understanding of what it means to be German, and what it means to have a democracy and civil society that is built on our difficult past.” “I'm happy to tell that, despite the fact that took me a lot of courage to even put my foot in the water, it went surprisingly well.” Links: https://www.on-the-balcony.com/ (On The Balcony) https://www.amazon.com/Leadership-Without-Answers-Ronald-Heifetz/dp/0674518586 (Leadership Without Easy Answers) https://www.lauren-lyons.com/ (Lauren Lyons Homepage) https://twitter.com/laur_ly?lang=en (Lauren Lyons on Twitter) https://adaptive-leadership.net/ (Adaptive Leadership Network's monthly gatherings) Mentioned in this episode: KONU Workshop Ad https://on-the-balcony.captivate.fm/shorturl-at-lqtw9 (KONU Workshop Ad)

    This episode, we dive into the balance of being a human-being in a demanding and engaging career in STEM, specifically Technology & Engineering. Even more so at a place like SpaceX, Blue Origin, or NASA (to name a few). While the job can very technical and detail oriented, there's also the fact that you're still a human-being and it's a difficult challenge. You have to juggle your desire to do cool science stuff with not getting completely overwhelmed by the work to the point you have a breakdown. It is at the end of the day…a balance. And to make it even more challenging, sometimes you deal with assholes! But we wanted to define what a true “asshole” is in STEM. Do they attack ideas or people? That's our gauge. Which one's the asshole? Let's find out - and I want to know from you what you consider an asshole at work to be? If someone is critical but sticks to the data and doesn't attack you as a person…are they still an asshole? Is it on you? Is Elon Musk an asshole? Does this all relate to the internal SpaceX employee letter and subsequent firings? You betcha! And like most things nowadays….it's actually complicated but frequently oversimplified. Let's dive into the core of the problem, which is also the solution - humanity! https://www.theverge.com/2022/6/16/23170228/spacex-elon-musk-internal-open-letter-behavior https://www.nytimes.com/2022/06/17/technology/spacex-employees-fired-musk-letter.html https://www.cnbc.com/2022/06/17/spacex-fires-employees-after-internal-letter-criticizes-ceo-elon-musk.html https://www.cnbc.com/2022/06/16/elon-musk-is-addressing-twitter-employees-live-updates-from-the-meeting.html https://twitter.com/elonmusk?s=21&t=lY5Qcecy77WO_37c9zHyjQ 00:30 Introduction 03:55 AG3D Printing - our lab is here to bring your ideas into reality...with 3D printing! 08:56 SpaceX Letter 10:56 SpaceX is a Technology company, working in Tech is difficult 11:56 Is Elon Musk an asshole?

    Escaping Gravity is former NASA Deputy Administrator Lori Garver's firsthand account of how a handful of revolutionaries overcame the political patronage and bureaucracy that threatened the space agency. The success of Elon Musk's SpaceX, Jeff Bezos' Blue Origin, Richard Branson's Virgin Galactic, and countless other commercial space efforts were preceded by decades of work by a group of people Garver calls “space pirates.” Join us when Garver examines the quest to transform NASA which put Garver in the crosshairs of Congress, the aerospace industry, and hero-astronauts trying to protect their own profits and mythology within a system that had held power since the 1950s, on this installment of Leonard Lopate at Large.
