It's headed to the International Space Station and carrying a bit of history. The first ever astronaut from Denmark is aboard. It'll take him, a Russian cosmonaut and a Kazakh cosmonaut two days to reach the orbiter. Well it's good to have you aboard for this Thursday's edition of CNN Student News. I'm your captain, Carl Azuz. We're flying through ten minutes of commercial free current events. Spinning the globe, it looks like President Obama may have enough Senate votes to protect his controversial nuclear deal with the Middle Eastern country of Iran. We covered the details of the deal in our August 18th show. Congress gets the final say on the US end of the deal and it's likely that lawmakers, virtually all Republicans and a few Democrats, will vote to reject it. But President Obama has promised to veto that. And it would require a two thirds vote in both the House and the Senate to override that veto. Yesterday, it appeared that enough Senators had announced their support for the deal to prevent that possible override. The Obama administration says this deal is the best way to make sure Iran doesn't build a nuclear weapon. Critics say it won't work, that Iran will still be able to build one in the years ahead. A CNN / ORC poll in mid- August found that 56 % of Americans said Congress should reject the deal, while 41 % said Congress should approve it. From Oakers to Eagles, from the Ocean State to Oman, it's time to take roll, starting in Coventry, Rhode Island. That's where the Oakers are. Hello to everyone at Coventry High School. In Brandon, Mississippi, there's an educational center named Brandon Middle School. It's where we found the Bulldogs today. And in the capitol of Oman, welcome to everyone watching at the American International School of Muscat. Great to see the Eagles. Polio is a viral disease that mostly affects children under age five. It's often associated with paralysis, but that actually happens in less than 1 % of cases. Most people who catch polio virus show no symptoms. Those who do, often have flu like symptoms. Since polio vaccines became widely available in the 1960s, the disease has been wiped out from most of the world, not everywhere. According to the World Health Organization, Ukraine just saw an outbreak. It's Europe's first outbreak in five years, and it's left two children paralyzed. This particular outbreak started with the vaccine. Doctors say, in rare cases, the weakened virus in the vaccine can mutate and spread, especially in areas where fewer people are already immunized. Only half the children in Ukraine are fully immunized. In one of the other countries where polio is still a threat, people are making progress against it. We're in northern Nigeria to document what was once thought impossible. The potential end of polio here in Africa. And here in remote Cono state, that means vaccinating some 3 million children in some of the world's hardest to reach areas. We decided to go along for the ride. In northern Nigeria most villages are off the grid, without healthcare. Isolation that has enabled the wild polio virus or WPV to survive here, decades after its eradication in most of the world. This is also a region where insecurity thrives. A more than five- year insurgency by ISIS- aligned Boko Haram continues to have devastating consequences. Better health care and better security are absolutely linked. It is not surprising that the three countries on Earth where we're still grappling with polio are those countries who have had a lot of unrest. Eradicating a disease. It's only ever happened once before. That was in 1980 when smallpox was eliminated. But with polio, it's within reach once again. Since the global initiative began in 1988, polio cases worldwide have been reduced by 99 %. The remaining endemic countries, conflict ridden Nigeria, Afghanistan, and Pakistan. The last push will be a challenge. When you come into these communities I mean, how do they receive you? Do they welcome you? Yes, for the hard to reach, we don't have a problem with that. People actually welcome me because we have other interventions. What are we looking at here? Now, this is actually a map for the last campaign. Close to Kaija settlement, [ FOREIGN ] from the World Health Organization shows me exactly what going door- to- door, house- to- house in rural Nigeria really means. So the check, that's a good thing. It's a very good thing. It means that all the children there received immunization. With polio, is there gonna be a finish date. You know all our indicators are showing us that we have covered grounds. Then we can now say okay we have reached a certain point, but we are not out of the woods. How big a deal will that be though? When that day happens how important will it be? I think it's a celebration for the world. Everyone is going to celebrate. Once you get Nigeria liberated from white poliovirus and you have interrupted transmission, I think the whole of Africa. You have achieved a very great feat for the whole of Africa. And I think we'll be more warned. Time for the Shoutout. Which of these U. S. hiking trails is the longest, spanning more than 2, 100 miles? If you think you know it, shout it out. Is it the Appalachian Trail, Buckeye Trail, California Coastal Trail, or Pacific Northwest Trail? Of these trails, the Appalachian is longest, passing through 14 states from Georgia to Maine. That's your answer and that's your shout out. The fact that it can take between five and seven months to hike it entirely is the reason why the Appalachian Trail is mostly used for short hikes. But after a marine tank commander served in the Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts, he found that the Appalachian Trail gave him and other veterans an opportunity to walk off the war. Sean Gobin is today's character study. You take back a lot of things from war that you didn't think you would want to bring back. I was just angry at everyone and didn't want anything to do with anybody. They can be kinda hard. You just get kind of anxious. You stop feeling, basically. All three of my combat deployments were really intense. There was no time to cope. I decided to hike the Appalachian Trail because it had been a dream of mine growing up. I saw it as a personal challenge. But about two thirds of the way, I realized I was processing all these experiences that I had put away, and I knew that there were other combat veterans that needed to do that. Hey we'll see you all in about six months. The Warrior Hike provides veterans with all the equipment supplies they need to complete a long distance hike. I love you mommy. It's just like a deployment except instead of going to fight a war your mission is to be a civilian again. Just being in the woods out here there's nothing to do but think. There's a internal quiet and some of the problems that you're dealing with get hammered away. Gorillas in the mist? Just being around other military is worth more than words can say. How many years you got in now? Fifteen years. Our veterans also receive trail town support along the way. Hello. Hi, how are you? Good, how are you? You can see how much they care. It helps. We help veterans prepare for the next chapter of their life. We're learning to take it as it comes and move on. Looking for that sense of calm, and every step I take I think I'm going in that direction. Before we go burpees for puppies. Okay, first the burpee part. This personal trainer shows what they are by doing them, a lot of them. He was trying to set a Guinness World Record for the most burpee's in 24 hours. The puppy part, he was doing it to raise money for an animal protection agency in Northern Nevada. The results part, Marshall Ruby bounced up more than 18, 000 times, both setting the record and raising more than $ 4, 000 in donations for the lucky animals of the shelter. Course, he was probably dog tired. Might have wanted a serious cat nap. Most would say doing that's for the birds and it takes a chinchillot of effort though. Afterward, you'd certainly feel like a beast. I'm Carl Zeus for CNN Student News. See you Friday. Awesome!
