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. [MUSIC PLAYING] 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. [MUSIC PLAYING] 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.
