>> pauley: 7 years ago today the battleship missouri was christened here in new york. it was state-of-the-art back then. but far cry from the brand new and somewhat more controversial addition to the nation's fleet. we call our "sunday morning" cover story anchors away it's
6:10 am
reported by david martin. >> if batman had a warship it would look like the uss zumwalt. >> welcome to the most advanced warship that the navy is bringing to the fleet. >> we rode with captain james kirk, no relation to star trek's captain dirk, although many people noted a coincidence. where the zumwalt with its one of a kind look was officially commissioned as a destroyer in the united states navy. >> looks very different, part of the design of the ship to be stealthy. a sleek exterior without a lot of metal sticking up in different places, a smooth surface. >> what would president trump think that the zumwalt costs an astronomical $4 billion. >> admits tried to cram in too much technology.
6:11 am
>> we built it. just not a smart way to build a ship. >> mabus got that black eye not in bureaucratic battle but from eye surgery. he spoke to us in the last full day in office. >> the original concept was to have this very advanced destroyer that was a land attack role, supporting ground tops, taking out enemy positions inland, having hyper precise weapons that could reach a long way inland. and to do it with the most advanced technology that we had. >> those innocuous looking boxes house gun barrels capable of firing tarok it-tea cysted shell more than 60 miles with pinpoint. >> within the range of the ship if it were ordered to that person has about two to three minutes before they will no longer be an enemy of the united states. >> but like the ship, it's ammunition turned out to be
6:12 am
expensive, $800,000 per shell. so the navy is looking for a cheaper round, one that would have ha significantly shorter range. >> today it's still a little bit unclear exactly what round is going on that ship, what the gun system will be able to do. >> there are only 147 crew members aboard the highly automated zumwalt, about half of what a traditional destroyer carries. >> i see over there instead of look outs you now have video mob stores. >> that's right. where we typically would have look outs 24-7 on the port side, the starboard sight and aft we have camera systems that we don't have to have sailor. >> still, says the chief petty officer there is more than enough work to do. >> they are brand new to the navy, we have to learn them from scratch. >> is this a sweet duty assignment? >> it's sweet. but you got to work for it. you're trying to catch up and
6:13 am
keep up with all the technologies on board the ship and understanding what's going on. >> the zumwalt has already is suffered two mechanical breakdowns, one in the panama canal as it was transsitting from the east coast to its permanent home port in san diego. >> this street the first ship of a class. first time we got underway. you're going to have things happen. >> maybe so, but right now the navy owns a $4 billion destroyer that cannot perform as advertised. how did that happen? >> it's a brand new concept, new technology. number one, it's going to be expensive because some of the technology is not going to work or it's going to take longer to develop. >> this program was started in the early 1990s. >> ron o'rourke has tracked the zumwalt for the congressional research service. >> originally as many of 2 of these ships were planned, but that number was cut back. >> what are they planning to build now? >> was truncated at only three
6:14 am
ships. >> 32 down to three. >> that's right. >> what happens if you only build a small number is the price just goes through the roof. >> everything about the zumwalt is controversial, its cost, its look even its name. >> because dad was so controversial in what he ha had done. we knew that there were many people in the navy that did not want the name zumwalt attached to a navy ship. >> anne on the right and mousetta are the daughters of the late admiral earl mow "bud" zumwalt, chief of naval operations from 1970 to '74. he shook up what was at the time was a very hide bound service. >> integrated the navy with minorities and women. >> he was famous for messages he sent to the fleet called z-grams, ordering an end to racism and sexism. those are on display.
6:15 am
>> you look at the zumwalt you will see all religions, all races represented, it's ironic the navy was behind and among the services. >> history has come to recognize admiral zumwalt as the leader who transformed the navy of the 20th century. uss zumwalt is easy to recognize but it will take awhile for the navy to figure out how to use it and for history to know what to think of it. >> pauley: coming up, dogs on a mission.

>> seems like every picture you're in a different uniform. >> he stopped chasing the dream only after he started chasing kids. once madison and jackson were born, he needed a real job. he'd been equipment manager ever since. >> sorry for the distraction. >> until recently. last month just a few hours before a game, carolina's back-up goalie got stick. now normally that's knotted a problem, you just bring someone up from the minors. but this was stow close to game time the hurricanes had no choice. >> i called my wife she's like, what's going on. i'm just getting ready for the game stand i'm dressing tonight. she sounded so happy for me and everything. >> moments later, the guy responsible for cleaning everyone's else's dirty uniforms had a bright new one of his own with his flame on the back. of course, he sat the whole

tape surfaced showing what looks like a dog being forced to do that pool stunt during filming. let's talk about this video that's been in the news first. have you had a chance to see the video? >> i was really shocked to tell you the truth. and i didn't like what i saw but i do know my own experience when i was on the set, how much care was paid to each and every dog. or every other animal. >> quaid, who is a dog owner in real life, wasn't in the water scene and had nothing to do with that part of the production. >> so for people who are saying boycott the film what would you say? >> i don't think that it's nair to tell you the truth. would never be on a set where dogs were mistreated or abused. that's what is -- support talking about that. >> dogs hit us in a certain

>> pauley: nanny young women in the 1970est saw themselves in the tv character played by mary tyler moore. among them rita braver. >> of course we all loved mary tyler moore but i was her alter ego, mary richards. the first girl, and yes, they called me girl producer, in my local newsroom. it wasn't minneapolis, like mary, but new orleans, wwl-tv. i was 23 years old, a year out of college and the news director who interviewed me had the same response that lou grant did. >> figure to hire a man. we can talk about it.
7:12 am
>> in fact phil johnson, less gruff but just as kind hearted as lou grant, ultimately told me that i got hired because they couldn't find a guy to take it for the money they were paying. >> the job pays $10 less a week than secretarial job. >> $72 a week to be exact. $56 take home. even in 1971, that was a pittance. but women my age still remember a time when bosses would openly pay women less than men. it suffers called getting your foot in the door. >> if you can get by on 15 less a week we'll make you a producer. >> no, i think all i can afford is associate producer. >> still, make mary richards i loved my job. making decisions about what would get on our news broadcasts, reading reporters' copy and having them sometimes take my suggestions. then of course, having them ask
7:13 am
me to gift wrap their wives' anniversary presents. but here's the thing. the mary tyler moore show really helped women in newsrooms. seeing her on tv made them realize we were here to stay. yes, they would ask me to go charm the grouchy old guy in graphics. but they would also take me on dangerous assignments like going into new orleans prison, when i would argue for more vietnam war coverage in lieu of a lighter feature i'd often win. and i honestly believe that the character of mary richards helped demonstrate that you could be a team player, get ahead, not have to become one of the boys. it was a proud moment when i left to join cbs and my boss told me he wanted to hire more women. he didn't say girls. >> pauley: something electric

>> pauley: many experts in electricity are truly juiced these days. they're pew suing the search for the super battery, the title of this wednesday night's episode of "nova" on pbs hosted by our own david pogue of yahoo tech. we have a preview. >> you probably grew up thinking that batteries are those things we put in flashlights. or maybe the rechargeable ones that come in cell phones and laptops. but lately batteries have been popping up in much bigger gadgets like electric cars. and now it's time to install batteries into the biggest machine of all, the united states electrical grid. that huge, aging complex network of power plants and wires that bring power to our homes and building. why would our national power system need batteries?
7:17 am
two gigantic reasons. >> we don't have a shortage of electricity. we have a shortage of electricity at certain times. we have an abundance at other times. >> mike hopkins is an expert on the national power storage problem and ceo of taco that hopes to solve it. >> i'm sure you know the electricity system has huge surpluses in it, at night time actually, that have to be literally wasted that has terrible deficits at other times of day, peak hours, which results, how do you know that, blackouts. >> that's the first reason we need batteries on the electrical grid. to even out the supply and demand. to time shift availability from night time to daytime. but reason number one is more important to our feature. power plant batteries would eliminate the biggest problem with solar power and wind power. >> they are both intermittent. clouds come over on a sunny day all of that sudden it's gone. wind stops blowing, it's gone.
7:18 am
you need a way to store it. >> some have proposed using huge banks of regular rechargeable batteries like the ones in our cell phones. but that's massively expensive and their life span is far too short. which is why some companies have begun creating batteries that don't look like batteries. here in bath county, virginia, they have set up a dam and two reservoirs. during the day, when people need power, the water flows downhill, spinning turbines and generating electricity. then at night, when power is cheap, they pump the water back uphill. they call this system pumped hydro. unfortunately, pumped hydro works only in a few places where they have those upper and lower reservoirs. but american inventors aren't finished yet. which brings us back to mike hopkins. >> word is that your new battery is environmentally perfect, can be charged and recharged unlike
7:19 am
a regular battery and way cheaper than lithium ion. >> i can show it to you right now if you want me to. >> yes, please. >> here is the big reveal. it's a block of ice. >> a beautiful block of ice. >> hopkins' company is called ice energy. he invited me to a winery in temecula, california, to show me his product, the ice bear. it's basically that huge bathtub that freezes water solid overnight when energy is very cheap. so far, what you've described is basically a big ice tray. how does that help anybody? >> well, the way it works is that during the heat of the day after this is ice, you get to the heat of the day this device is connected to that device, which is just a common conventional rooftop air conditioner. that air conditioner doesn't have to create cooling, it's getting ice cold refrigerant from the melting ice over in this device. using only 5% of the electrici
7:20 am
electricity. in total, if you were having to run that electricity consuming device. >> in other words, these ten ice batteries can replace the winery's air conditioners for six hours a day. as a result, the winery saves electricity and lowers greenhouse gasses by 20 tons a year. that's an important step in fighting climate change. now, thawing ice isn't the only force of nature that can store grid energy. >> let's take a look. spin the wheel. each of the points along the tire and the rim is in motion and voila, energy storage. >> seth sanders is the cofounder of amber kinetics near san francisco. and this bike is supposed to illustrate how their grid batteries work. >> so here comes the sun, i'm shining on your solar panels. i'm charging up the flywheel, that i get.
7:21 am
so now the sun goes down. how do i get this stored energy back into the grid? >> an electric machine function as a motor and equally well as a generator. >> in other words, amber kinetics uses cheap electricity at night to spin up enormous fly wheels. then during the day, a generator captures that momentum. the flywheel slows down, the generator creates electricity. and these wheels aren't exactly bike wheels. how do these babies weigh? >> about 5,000 pound. >> how fast will it be spinning? >> thousands of rpm. >> 8,000 rotations a minute. but the coolest part is how they keep friction from slowing down that big steel wheel. first, they use a huge magnet levitates that 5,000 pound wheel so that it's just barely resting on its bearings. second, they seal the flywheel into this vacuum chamber so
7:22 am
there's no air friction either. each flywheel can store four hours worth of electricity. the result a battery that never loses charging capacity, can't catch fire and lasts for decades. all over the world the quest is on to invent storage for our electrical network. something cheap, that stores a lot and lasts for decades. it might be gravity or ice or spinning disks or some other idea. or maybe all of the above. but once we have them, we can reduce blackouts, cut down on pollution, capture the power of the wind and let solar power really start to shine.
