  • CARL AZUZ: A bomb cyclone just dropped on the US heartland.

  • What that is and what it does is our first topic

  • this Thursday on "CNN 10".

  • I'm Carl Azuz.

  • Thank you for watching.

  • In the capital of Colorado, the Mile High City of Denver,

  • Tuesday's high temperature was nearly 60 degrees Fahrenheit.

  • 24 hours later, it was freezing and snowing.

  • This is the result of bombogenesis, what's

  • also called a bomb cyclone.

  • It happens when there's a rapid drop in atmospheric pressure

  • that causes a storm to become very intense, very quickly.

  • How intense?

  • Central and northern US states that lie in the Rocky Mountains

  • and east of them were bracing for winds that

  • could reach 70 miles per hour.

  • That's nearly the speed of a category one hurricane.

  • Blizzard and winter storm warnings

  • were in effect for parts of Colorado, Nebraska,

  • South Dakota, and Wyoming.

  • Heavy snow was likely.

  • The National Weather Service in Boulder, Colorado

  • predicted whiteout conditions when there's no visibility,

  • and power outages too.

  • It told the people in the region to cancel

  • any travel plans Wednesday afternoon and evening.

  • Some folks didn't have a choice.

  • More than 1,000 flights were canceled yesterday, mostly at

  • Denver International Airport.

  • Denver Public Schools, like several other districts

  • in Colorado, were closed.

  • Forecasters expected the storm to move northeast

  • from the Colorado Rocky Mountains,

  • with the snow tapering off by Thursday afternoon.

  • But they're also on the lookout for strong winds

  • and possible flooding in southern states east

  • of the Rockies, where thunderstorms were likely.

  • Next today, Boeing passenger planes, models 737 Max 8 and 9

  • have been grounded in the US and Canada.

  • The two nations announced their decision yesterday afternoon.

  • At that point, they'd been the only two

  • countries with a substantial number

  • of these planes still flying.

  • US President Donald Trump said new information

  • about the Ethiopian airlines crash led to the Federal

  • Aviation Administration's order to temporarily

  • ground 737 Max 8s and 9s.

  • We covered the plane and the accident and yesterday's show.

  • You can find that at CNN10.com.

  • The Boeing Company says it still has full confidence

  • in its airplane safety, but that out of an abundance of caution,

  • it supports the decision by the US government.

  • - 10 second trivia.

  • Which of these fast food restaurant chains

  • was founded first?

  • Burger King, Chick fil-A, McDonald's, or Wendy's?

  • The first Chick fil-A chicken sandwich was served

  • at The Dwarf Grill in 1946.

  • CARL AZUZ: July 20th, 2019 will mark exactly 50 years

  • since astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin took mankind's

  • first steps on the moon.

  • The main mission of Apollo 11 was

  • to get humans safely to the moon,

  • and then get them safely home.

  • But Armstrong, Aldrin, and Michael

  • Collins, the command module pilot,

  • also brought back samples.

  • The Smithsonian Institution says they

  • were the first ever retrieved from another planetary body.

  • The subsequent missions of Apollo 15, 16,

  • and 17 brought home more.

  • Some have been sitting untouched in storage for decades.

  • And this week, NASA announced they'd

  • be studied for the first time.

  • Nine teams will receive $8 million for their research.

  • NASA hopes to gain new understanding

  • about the moon from it and prepare

  • for more deep space missions.

  • Meantime, Americans have the opportunity

  • to see the moon in a new light from newly restored footage.

  • - It's one small step for man.

  • One giant leap for mankind.

  • - It was a moment seen by millions.

  • Man's first steps on the moon.

  • The Apollo 11 mission remains one of humanity's greatest

  • achievements.

  • And yet, there is much we never heard, never

  • saw, and never knew until now.

  • - Countdown for a Apollo 11 now five minutes,

  • 52 seconds and counting.

  • - 50 years after the historic launch,

  • a new documentary tells the mission's story

  • with new accuracy, pieced together with archival film

  • and recordings unearthed by the filmmakers.

  • TODD DOUGLAS MILLER: When we started the project,

  • we kind of cast a big net to try to get

  • all the available film footage.

  • What really-- the amazing part was, several months and when

  • this discovery of the collection of the 65 millimeter,

  • so was all large format.

  • And, you know, needless to say, our jaws were on the ground

  • when we saw the first images off the film scanner.

  • - Among the discovery were thousands of hours of footage

  • that only existed on old reels.

  • Much of it uncatalogued, lacking labels or transcriptions.

  • TODD DOUGLAS MILLER: NASA, 50 years ago,

  • had shot this, developed it, sent it out

  • to the different centers, and then ultimately, it

  • ended up at the National Archives

  • in College Park outside of DC.

  • And sitting in cold storage all these years.

  • - Working with the team, the film makers sifted through,

  • restored, and digitized troves of material.

  • TODD DOUGLAS MILLER: Once we spent the time researching all

  • of that and then actually made an entire timeline that

  • was nine days long of the mission,

  • so there really is a nine day version of this film.

  • We quickly realized that we had, you know, something special,

  • and that we could do it all with archival materials

  • and not rely on current talking heads or other kind of movie

  • trickery to tell the story.

  • TOM PETERSEN: I think that the all

  • archival approach really adds to the immediacy of everything.

  • And that was really what we set out to do, was just, you make,

  • you feel as if you were actually there.

  • - Without narration, recreation, or commentary,

  • the film uses only original footage to condense the nine

  • day mission into 90 minutes.

  • It begins with launch preparations

  • and ends with the astronauts' return

  • to Earth, layering new perspectives of all those

  • involved in the undertaking.

  • - I'd like to know what you feel as

  • far as the responsibilities of representing

  • mankind on this trip.

  • - That's relatively difficult to answer.

  • It's a job that we collectively said it was possible

  • and we could do.

  • And, of course, the nation itself is backing us.

  • - [INAUDIBLE], CNN.

  • CARL AZUZ: We're not coming back down to Earth just yet.

  • Since it's Throwback Thursday, we're looking back on NASA's

  • Apollo 14 mission to the moon.

  • Well, astronauts Alan Shepard and Edgar

  • Mitchell were there in 1971.

  • They explored the moon's surface,

  • set up experiments, and climbed to the edge of a crater.

  • But there's something Alan Shepard did

  • afterward that golfers loved.

  • Though the ball he hit with his six iron did not actually

  • travel for more than a mile.

  • ALAN SHEPARD: --six iron on the bottom of it.

  • In my left hand I have a little white pellet

  • that's familiar to millions and millions of Americans.

  • I'll drop it down.

  • Unfortunately, the suit is so stiff I can't

  • do this with two hands, but I'm gonna

  • try an old sand trap shot here.

  • EDGAR MITCHELL: Your got more dirt than ball that time.

  • ALAN SHEPARD: Got more dirt than ball.

  • Here we go again.

  • - That looked like a slice to me, Al.

  • ALAN SHEPARD: Here we go.

  • Straight as a die.

  • One more.

  • Miles and miles and miles.

  • CARL AZUZ: Glad we were able to wedge that in.

  • It's definitely not par for the course of a moon mission,

  • but it surely irons out the question of whether you

  • can hit the links by moonlight.

  • It's a slice of levity where there's less gravity,

  • and even if there's no birdie to be seen,

  • it's not like you're going to get a Mulligan.

  • I'm Carl Azuz, teeing off with CNN.
