    BOX FORT TRAIN HEIST!! 📦🚂 Nerf War, Working Train & More!

    February 18, 2020


    so you’re telling me partner that you’re
    looking to transport a hundred thousand rolls of duct tape through this here tag
    we’re looking to transport a hundred thousand rolls of tape across this
    country that’s more duct tape than we ever say I mean to do something like
    that you would eat operations man equipment you’d need some sort of device
    something that could take the tape and move it from a duei honey that maybe
    goes like a like a tooth I never seen anything like that before I believe what
    you’re talking about is a train ride a train or we don’t have very many traits
    not to mention the bandits you see the trains they they go through this
    despondent City all the time but bandits they’re your number one issue hundred
    rolls of tape in one train that’s just a jackpot what am I looking to rob it
    these bandits you’re speaking of merely a local scone this has to go home
    without a hitch you would need some sort of mega train
    that the train made of reinforced cobble I want you to prepare a train that is
    impenetrable from these bandits there is one way there’s one way I think we could
    do this that’s a bit rescue and I would need some funds I would need say two to
    five thousand rolls of tape he says he charges a lot but he’s good he’s known
    as the best box builder in the world all right give him a car I’ll release
    the funds but I never found these here we go
    I’ll have them hauled in a minute hmm do I wear this one won’t do it wear
    this one it’s so hard to choose the Yeezys there’s this number before Bob
    Jacob objects box for build services how am i healthy that’s Bob Jake speaking
    howdy this is the mayor of Albuquerque and I broker cute town okay yes look I
    have a job for you I’m looking for someone to build us a box for train yeah
    I could build one of those yes yeah a box for train you see we’re trying to
    transport a hundred thousand rolls of tape from one place to another with a
    whole country full of bandits you’re transporting a hundred thousand rolls of
    tape yeah I know it’s quite a lot of tape look what we’re looking offer you
    five thousand rolls of tape in order to get this job done we know you the best
    box ball pillow in this side of the world all right you’ve got yourself a
    deal I’ll have the train build ASAP perfect you’ll do it that sounds great
    we’ll get you supplies ready and you can transport the tape thank you so much
    that Hey look what I told you partner he’s ready to do it but we get in here
    we have a big issue now Jake Logan you’ve been seeing me sitting here this
    whole time no I’m listen I noticed you okay then if
    you heard the conversation you’ll know we’re dealing with a box for heist uh
    Jake they don’t want a heist we’re building them a train right yes a train
    carrying a hundred thousand rolls of tape but Logan do you know where those
    hundred thousand rolls of tape are going they’re going to the Red Army look
    there’s bad as the Baron himself the Baron the Baron himself we’re gonna save
    the world it means robbing a train Jake you from
    chimney and we are back with a brand new video and today guys we’re doing
    something extra special we’re building a train that’s right
    we’re making a real working train Logan it is gonna be like a choo-choo train
    that goes like charge except this is gonna really work and I know what you
    think you pop Jake there’s no way you can pull the box for a train Oh edit it
    like it went in but anyway guys I don’t even think in Papaji how are you gonna
    build a train out of cardboard we’re gonna be using this
    here we are gonna be attaching it to our scooter which you guys have seen in all
    our videos before we used it in our box for tank we also used it in a racing box
    is this so check it out so basically this attaches to that and it turns into
    a little car then what we got or something I know all you guys are gonna
    remember I remember these from gym class and I loved when these would come out we’re gonna take those and we’re gonna
    attach them behind the main cart which is gonna be that thing and we’re gonna
    have three different train cars that we can store our tape in because we got
    transport tape across a bandit field wasteland so we’re gonna do it we got to
    make this Train not only work but also very secure so that no one can break
    into it even if they wanted to if they’re really professional like Pappa
    Jake Jake I just came up with a new discovery I think we need a trampoline yo guys if you think we need to buy a
    trampoline put a hashtag trampoline down below and of course guys don’t forget if
    you’re brand new to the channel make sure to smash that subscribe button make
    sure to hit the little Bell button join the Papa Jake family we’re always making
    new videos on the daily for you guys having a bunch of fun so join the
    adventure cuz every day is something new I thought that was going in and of
    course do not forget to smash that like button guys let’s try and crush 50,000
    likes on this video I’ll make you guys a deal if we get 50,000 likes on this
    video we’ll buy a trampoline for the house all right Logan no longer gets to
    use the basketballs first we gotta start working on the main train which is gonna
    be the little go-kart so let’s set the go-kart up and see how it works
    goecart if you guys have been on the channel for a while now you’ll see us
    use this before but this thing is so cool you go really fast with it and
    we’re gonna use this as the front of the Train so all those little scooters will
    be attached behind it with their own little box sport cars and then we’ll
    have a really long train that can go around corners like this drive around
    the house oh yeah this is gonna be awesome dude I think we need to start
    working on the front of the train so we can get a really cool train front going
    and let’s get building check this out we just all what we’re
    almost finished the front car as you can see here the entire thing is decked out
    it looks exactly like a real train car powered down below who stuff to make a
    hole to get inside this thing we also of course need it front window here so you
    can actually see out before we get working on the rest of the cars though
    we do want to test this and we do want to make a door I was thinking Jake you
    know how the Tesla doors open up oh yeah I like doors we shouldn’t we should open
    this door okay yeah this trains gonna be lit all right so let’s get the doors on
    this thing and then let’s give it a test run once we know that this is working
    then we can start working on the rest of the train cars to start transporting
    this load of tape and also hope because they think they hired us to protect this
    dream what can I be the baddest so we’re putting some safety philosophy Shh check
    it out I’m in the train now we’re gonna give it a little test run obviously I
    don’t have the rest of the train behind us because we haven’t built it yet but
    we wanted to test out the main car see how it works this is gonna be the engine
    and the primary car for everything that you drive so let’s see let’s see if I
    can make this thing move you got a little bit about hey clearance
    issue but I was so far driving this thing not bad at all
    careful Jake you don’t want to go down the stairs and I’ve just imagine this
    with three massive train cars behind me outwards awesome I mean other than the
    factory I’ll be really careful of your surroundings that’s perfect so now all
    we have to do is make the rest of the train cars attached through this thing
    and she’s ready to go good use these things of course as the base they move
    around in any direction you want and then we’re gonna put cardboard on top of
    them like so and there you go now of course yourself to build them up and
    make them into boxes but in theory this should work if we attach all of these
    with strength to the main train over there it should work exactly like a
    train so check it out we just finished this train oh that makes sense alright
    alright so we have our train here it’s awesome of course you got the main car
    here that powers everything then we’ve got this part this car this card the
    scary bit difficult to drive in order to test it before we hand it over I’ve got
    to drive it around and try and go in a circle
    if I can complete that that we know it works and if we can hand it over okay
    Logan should be able to guide me and if everything works all the parts will
    follow and nothing will break yeah Wow yeah I was about to hit a wall oh this is so sweet
    I’ve got my blog portrayed all right Logan listen up we’ve handed a train
    over it’s on set schedule we have a chance to stop it and steal that tape
    I’ve got a plan worked out it’s a long shot but it might work
    we built that train so we know it in and out but we’ll secure box for our luckily
    for us I’ve got this sir I’m a penetrating nerf gun he used this and
    shoot it I have to train at just the right time you should be able to stop it
    I’ll move in and take out the driver once the drivers take it out I’ll steal
    the train and bring it back to our headquarters you ready and exactly 2:00
    p.m. in training we pass it down below you’ll take overwatch here with sniper
    once you get out the training disable it I’ll move into the pistol we only get
    one shot at this low I got a visual on the training teaching
    the shot on your account take the shot whoa you’re good go I don’t know a vigil on the driver
    yet doesn’t seem to be anyone in there he definitely didn’t make his way out
    though see the driver door showers not making noise let’s see he’s down oh man
    oh man we hit the mother lode all right I’m grabbing everything I can oh we’re
    gonna be so rich dude how the amount of easy this is gonna buy we got to get out
    of here quick his men will be after us what do you mean my tape wasn’t Papa J
    stole my tape does he know who’s man no red Legion
    will be coming for him alright guys but that pretty much wraps
    up the video for today hope you guys enjoyed our box for trade if you did be

    NASA Explorers S4 E3: Training the Astronauts

    February 18, 2020


    >>HI, I’M TERRY VIRTS AND I WANNA TALK ABOUT FLOATING IN SPACE. ONE OF THE FIRST THINGS YOU NEED TO REALIZE WHEN YOU GET INTO SPACE IS THAT EVEN THOUGH YOU FEEL LIKE YOU’RE FALLING, YOU’RE NOT. YOU CAN LET GO AND YOU FLOAT. THAT’S NOT A PROBLEM. IT’S SOMETHING YOU REALLY HAVE TO TRAIN YOUR BRAIN TO THINK ABOUT. ANOTHER THING THAT YOU NEED TO LEARN WHEN YOU FIRST GET INTO SPACE IS HOW LITTLE FORCE IS REQUIRED TO MOVE YOU. AND ANOTHER COOL THING IS YOU COULD BE ON THE CEILING. IT MAKES IT VERY EASY WHEN YOU’RE WORKING, YOU HAVE TO GET– DO SOME WORK DONE UP HERE, YOU JUST GO UP ON THE CEILING AND GET YOUR WORK DONE.>>OUR TEAM OF SCIENTISTS IS BUSY GETTING THEIR EXPERIMENT READY FOR LAUNCH. AT THE SAME TIME, NASA IS PREPARING THE SPACE SCIENTISTS WHO WILL OPERATE THE EXPERIMENT ABOARD THE INTERNATIONAL SPACE STATION.>>SO AS ASTRONAUTS ON BOARD THE SPACE STATION, WE ARE THE HANDS AND EYES OF RESEARCHING. THEY ARE TELLING US HOW BEST TO DO THE SCIENCE, BUT IT’S UP TO US TO MAKE SURE THAT SCIENCE RUNS CORRECTLY.>>ASTRONAUTS TRAIN ALL OVER THE WORLD, INCLUDING AT NASA’S JOHNSON SPACE CENTER IN HOUSTON, TEXAS. HERE THEY LEARN NOT JUST HOW TO LIVE IN SPACE, BUT ALSO HOW TO CONDUCT SCIENCE IN MICROGRAVITY.>>SO MANY FOLKS ASK, “HOW MUCH TRAINING DID YOU DO BEFORE LAUNCHING TO THE SPACE STATION?” AND THE ANSWER IS MANY YEARS! SO WE TRAIN IN A LOT OF BIG AREAS. NUMBER ONE IS SYSTEMS ONBOARD THE ISS, ROBOTICS, HOW TO DO SPACEWALKS, AND ACTUALLY SCIENCE ITSELF. NOW WE DON’T LEARN ABOUT A LOT OF THE SCIENCE EXPERIMENTS WE’RE DOING UNTIL WE GET UP THERE. BUT WHAT THEY ARE TEACHING US IS SCIENTIFIC TECHNIQUES. THE TECHNIQUES ASTRONAUTS LEARN RANGE FROM USING TOOLS LIKE PIPETTES AND MICROSCOPES IN MICROGRAVITY TO OPERATING SCIENTIFIC HARDWARE ABOARD THE SPACE STATION. FOR EXAMPLE, WE STUDY COMBUSTION ABOARD THE STATION BECAUSE IT BEHAVES DIFFERENTLY IN MICROGRAVITY. YOU WOULDN’T WANT FIRE TO GET FREE INSIDE YOUR HOME IN SPACE, THOUGH. SO WE’VE CREATED SPECIAL FACILITIES TO CONTAIN IT. IF IT LOOKS COMPLICATED, IT’S BECAUSE IT IS. AND IT’S JUST ONE OF THE PIECES OF EQUIPMENT ASTRONAUTS MUST MASTER BEFORE THEY GO TO THE SPACE STATION.>>HI, I’M TRACEY NEFF AND THIS IS SHARON REINKE AND WE’RE IN PDL2 RIGHT NOW. AND WE’RE DOWN HERE AT JSC TO DO THE FLUIDS AND COMBUSTION FACILITY TRAINING FOR THE COMBUSTION INTEGRATED RACK AND THE FLUIDS INTEGRATED RACK.>>SO BASICALLY, PDL2 IS A MOCKUP OF THE US LAB. SINCE 2008 WE’VE BEEN COMING DOWN AND TRAINING ALL THE CREW MEMBERS WHO WILL DO PAYLOADS ON THE SPACE STATION. WE’VE BEEN TRAINING COSMONAUTS AS WELL.>>HOW MANY CREW DO YOU THINK YOU TRAINED AT THIS POINT?>>PROBABLY… 50? PROBABLY OVER 50 CREW MEMBERS WE’VE TRAINED.>>TODAY, TRACEY AND SHARON ARE BACK AT WORK WITH A FORMER STUDENT. NASA ASTRONAUT, MIKE FINCKE. THIS ISN’T MIKE’S FIRST RODEO WITH THE STATION, OR THIS EQUIPMENT FOR THAT MATTER.>>SO BACK IN 2008 AND 2009, WE WERE ABOARD THE INTERNATIONAL SPACE STATION WHEN A SPACE SHUTTLE, STS-126 CHRIS FERGUSON AND CREW, DROPPED OFF A WHOLE BIG BUNCH OF PACKAGES. AND WE CAREFULLY AND SLOWLY PUT IT ALL TOGETHER. AND WHEN IT WAS ALL DONE, WE HAD A BRAND NEW, READY, FRESH-OUT-OF-THE-BOX COMBUSTION INTEGRATION RACK. AND SINCE THEN, OUR FRIENDS AT GLENN RESEARCH CENTER HERE AT NASA HAVE BEEN ABLE TO GET SOME FANTASTIC SCIENCE ABOUT HOW THINGS BURN IN SPACE WITHOUT GRAVITY, WITHOUT CONVECTION, THINGS BURN. AND BY UNDERSTANDING THAT BETTER WE’RE ABLE TO MAKE MORE FUEL-EFFICIENT ENGINES AND THINGS HERE ON PLANET EARTH HELPING SAVE OUR ENERGY. SO YOU CAN SEE IT IN THE VIDEO. ALL THE HOSES, UH, ARE WITHIN THE RING. AND, UH, SO THEY ALL FIT IN NICELY SO THEY SHOULDN’T INTERFERE WITH US.>>SOUNDS GREAT AND LOOKS GREAT, THANK YOU.>>WELL A LOT HAD CHANGED IN 11 YEARS SINCE HE WAS UP THERE. SO HE DID GET MOST OF THE INFORMATION AGAIN. AND IT WAS A NEW EXPERIMENT, SO HE HADN’T SEEN THAT EITHER. HE DID GREAT! HE’S A QUICK LEARNER. HE’S GREAT TO WORK WITH, VERY METHODICAL. AND GOOD HUMOR, WHICH IS ALWAYS– WE LIKE TO HAVE FUN WHEN WE’RE TRAINING.>>THEN THE– THE LAB CAMERA WILL BE SHOWING–?>>YES, WE HAVE THE CAMERA ON.>>AND I WILL BE LIKE, LOOKING AND I’M GONNA GO SLOWLY AND THAT WOULD BE YOUR CHANCE TO SAY, “NO!”>>YES. WE ARE WATCHING YOU, YES. AND… HELP YOU WHENEVER WE CAN.>>THIS ISN’T THE LAST TIME TRACEY AND SHARON WILL WORK WITH MIKE. WHEN HE LAUNCHES TO THE STATION AND WORKS ON COMBUSTION PROJECTS IN SPACE, THEY’LL WATCH OVER HIS SHOULDER THROUGH A CAMERA BROADCASTING TO GLENN RESEARCH CENTER IN CLEVELAND, OHIO.>>CHRISTINA, THIS IS SHARON WITH AN ANSWER TO YOUR QUESTION, SO THEY DO WANT YOU TO GO AHEAD AND INSTALL THE CABLE TIE.>>THAT’LL BE ALL. THANKS FOR HUNTING THAT DOWN FOR ME.>>ANYTIME!>>BEING ABLE TO OPERATE AND MAINTAIN THE SPACE STATION WHILE CONDUCTING CRUCIAL RESEARCH COULD GET OVERWHELMING. LUCKILY, ASTRONAUTS HAVE STRONG SUPPORT TEAMS ON THE GROUND AND OFTEN DEVELOP PERSONAL CONNECTIONS TO THE RESEARCH.>>I WAS SO IMPRESSED AT THE DIFFERENT THINGS WE’D BE WORKING ON– CANCER OR PARKINSON’S OR EVEN ALZHEIMER’S DISEASE. SO AS A PHYSICIAN, THESE MEANT A LOT TO ME. THESE PERSONALLY WERE VERY IMPORTANT EXPERIMENTS THAT WE NEEDED TO DO. BUT IN ALL HONESTY, THE ENTIRE CREW, NOT JUST MYSELF AS THE PHYSICIAN, WERE EXCITED ABOUT WORKING ON THESE EXPERIMENTS. YOU GET A LITTLE NERVOUS AT FIRST AS YOU BEGIN TO PIPETTE OR EVEN UTILIZE A MICROSCOPE, WHICH I HADN’T USED IN YEARS. BUT YOU QUICKLY LEARN BECAUSE YOU REALIZE HOW IMPORTANT IT IS TO THE SCIENCE AND THE INVESTIGATORS AND SCIENTISTS RUNNING YOU THROUGH ALL THESE EXPERIMENTS WERE FANTASTIC AND JUST WALKED US THROUGH IT EVERY STEP OF THE WAY. YEAH JUST KEEP US POSTED BUT– DREW AND I ARE READY TO CONTINUE OPS! GOOD WORKING WITH YOU GUYS TODAY AND I’LL SEE YOU SOON!>>WE GOT HERE ON A THURSDAY AND IT’S CURRENTLY SUNDAY. WE’VE HAD A BIG DAY YESTERDAY FILLING UP THESE WELLS WITH GEL SOLUTION AND GETTING READY FOR HANDOVER AT 7:30 AM ON MONDAY. AHEAD OF LAUNCH ON TUESDAY AFTERNOON.
