A nation's gross domestic product is a good measure of its economy's health. The GDP is the total value of all the goods and services a country produces in a certain time period. If that GDP grows from year to year, it's one sign of a growing and healthy economy. The United States has the biggest economy and GDP on the planet. How big from the year 2020 The U S Commerce Department just reported that the nation's gross domestic product stood at $20.9 trillion. Here's the bad news. The year before, it was at 21.4 trillion. That's a drop of more than 3% from 2019 to 2020. It was greater than the decrease brought on by the great recession in 2009, and it represented America's worst economic decline since 1946 following the end of World War Two. Guess what caused it. If you said the coronavirus pandemic and the shutdowns related to it, you get a gold star and the chairman of the Federal Reserve, America's central bank, says what happens with the virus will determine what happens with the economy going forward. Some economists predict that if the vaccines prove effective, things could get back to normal later this year. Natural immunity from those who have recovered from the disease could factor in his well, though the U. S gross domestic products dropped from 2019 to 2020 there was a silver lining to the government's report. Americas Quarterly Gross domestic product, measured on Lee from the third quarter of last year to the fourth one, grew by 4% and the growth had been more than 33% during the quarter before. So those were good signs for the second half of 2020. But all that wasn't enough to make up for what the nation lost earlier in the year. 12th Trivia. Where would you find the tallest mountain in the solar system? Nepal Mars, the moon or tighten? Scientists believe that Olympus Mons, a volcano on Mars, is the tallest mountain in the solar system. Since the 19 sixties, NASA has launched more than 20 missions to the Red Planet. Not all of them have been successful. As the project manager for the newest rover mission puts it, landing on Mars is hard. But that hasn't deterred the scientists behind the $2.7 billion perseverance project. The rover is set to touch down on Mars in 20 days. It's the biggest, heaviest and most advanced machine of its kind that NASA's ever built, and scientists will be relying completely on its computer systems to get the landing right. Mars is more than 292 million miles away. It takes 10.5 minutes for radio signals on Earth to reach a rover on Mars, and the landing process occurs over seven minutes. So if anything goes wrong is perseverance gets close to the surface. There won't be enough time for NASA to correct it. Of course, the organization has done this before with other Landers and Rovers, and assuming perseverance gets to Mars. Okay, it'll start taking pictures and exploring the planet's geology and climate. The rover is also carrying a helicopter named Ingenuity. The $23 million aircraft isn't collecting any scientific info. It's there just to see if helicopter flight is feasible for future missions. While it does that the Perseverance Rover is expected to cover 15 miles in its years long journey. The summer temperature near Mars Equator is around 70 degrees. That's not too different from this week's highs on the Hawaiian island of Oahu. And that's where CNN 10 contributor Chris James is about to take us. Oahu's North Shore is a little less than an hour's drive from the capital of Honolulu, but it's not driving we're looking to do today. This is the time of year when the surf's up, along with the risks for those who don't pay attention to the reef below. Hey, Carl, I am absolutely fascinated by some might say, obsessed with big wave surfing. To me, surfing is one of the coolest things anybody could possibly dio. And over the past few weeks, my instagram Discover Page has been inundated with amazing surf videos, all films at this iconic location where I'm taking you today.

These perfect barrel shaped waves have helped catapult the careers of top professional surfers like Kelly Slater in Khost Smith. It's mesmerizing toe watch These massive waves roll through. Could you imagine the adrenaline rush before careening down waves? That could be a high as 20 ft? And by the way, these waves are for experts on Lee. According to sir, for today, the intensity of the wave is due in part to the fact that there are three successive underwater reefs, which helped to create those ideal conditions for what's known in the surf community. As the queen of all waves, tourists and local Spectators alike flocked to the North Shore Beach tow witness, surf royalty take on the pipeline. But with the beauty of these waves also comes a serious danger that has dubbed the Bonzai pipeline the world's deadliest wave. According to complex, one false move could be catastrophic. And as the peak surf season continues throughout the winter, the world's top surfers will keep conquering the pipelines monster waves. And while they do that, I will be following along from the safety of my couch back to you, Carl pandas can bark. That's something new I learned while working on today's show. I also found out that their gestation period takes anywhere from 3 to 5 months that they can live as long as 30 years in captivity, and they can grow it away as much as £330. That's amazing when you consider how small this one was when it was born. Washington's National Zoo is closed due to co vid, but they couldn't resist pandering to panda fans with this. We actually just woke him up from a nap from nap to his first live virtual encounter, full of panda baby talk. Right bud, What you doing so silly? Oh, sweet potatoes. Delicious.
