gateway. frank demauro showed the mockup of a gateway habitat. he oversees space relations for the company. >> reporter: up to four astronauts could work and live here for up to two months. >> if you look up here, that's a berth that a crew member would go in when it's time to sleep. >> reporter: the "apollo" astronauts were basically living out of their car to and from the moon. this is more of a home. >> it's a place where they cook their food, they can gather and socialize, but really do their work. >> reporter: but"orion" is years behind schedule, and trump ordered americans put a man back on the moon by 2024. if nasa's not capable of landing sflauts on the moon in five years, we need to change the organization, not the mission. >> reporter: nasa did just that last week, ousting the top two
7:42 am
managers of the program. >> it was entirely my decision, but at the end of the day, we need to be very clear that nasa is committed to cost and schedule. >> reporter: nasa administrator jim bridenstine says it could take $20 billion additional over five years to meet that new deadline. >> my next step is to get the support from the >> reporter: when this hatch closes, imagine three astronauts squeezed inside for eight days for the roundtrip to the moon. now, without additional billions, nasa has no chance of going back to the moon by 2024. administrative bridenstine will be on capitol hill tomorrow to make nasa's case. >> 20294, it will be -- 2024, it will be here before you know it. thank you so much, mark. thank you.

t stage for the first african-american in space. back in 1961, air force pilot ed dwight was chosen by president john f. kennedy's administration to bring diversity to nasa and become america's first black astronaut. he appeared on national magazine covers and radio programs to promote the space program, but dwight said he was a target of racism from colleagues and officials, and he was not selected by nasa to be an astronaut. he later left the air notice. lyndon b. johnson picked robert lawrence to be the first black astronaut, but he never made it to space either. sadly, he died in a training accident in 1967. it wasn't until 1983 that we would see guy bluford become the first african-american to make it into space. eems likeor long . everybody didn't get to go to space. >> that's right. 18 african-americans have been apherdo that it took 22 years

moment. all right. before lunar landings, astronauts had to navigate a training ground that seems as desolate as the moon. in between the grand canyon and phoenix is an area in flagstaff, arizona. it's a near perfect blueprint what neil armstrong and the rest of the crew encountered while they were walking on the moon. in the 1960s, the geological survey made flagstaff more moonlight to test vehicles and equipment, hundreds of craters were blasted into the fields. there is a remarkable story. they blasted craters to creates a lunar surface. here all moon-bound astronauts learned how to walk through rough terrain in their space suits. they also took crash courses on rock formations and lunar mapping. in fact, they named a crater on the moon, they named it flag crater in honor of flagstaff. ou get up there, you're space i.

8:01 am
blasted off. >> armstrong and aldrin became the first to step on the moon. >> 50 years ago -- >> the launch of the historic mission to another world. millions glued to their tv and they were not disappointed. >> kevin mccarthy defended the president. he said mr. trump isn't racist, just frustrated about these four women and their political views. democratic presidential candidates get asked every day about something the president has done or said. sometimes they try to brush it off and change the subject but not this time. >> a judge will decide whether kelly will be released on bail. meantime attorney michael avenatti said the new charges sex case he handed over to federal prosecutors. >> more than a million facebook users say they want to storm area 51 in an effort to, quote, see the aliens. the air force says, quote, the air force always stands ready to protect america and its assets.
8:02 am
>> okay. i don't think area 51 was suspicious until the last part. he military is like, guys, it's g's "an ordinary training range, and if you come near here we will kill all of you. >> this morning's eye-opener presented by toyota, let's go places. >> i hope to go my whole life and never see an alien face-to-face. he you believe in aliens. >> i do believe in them. i don' i don't think we're the only thonyhere but i don't want to get one any time soon. ionalay. i'm anthony mason with gayle er in fl jericka duncan. tony dokoupil is at the kennedy this mcenter in florida as we wakemorate the 50th anniversary of "apollo 11." armstrorning nasa tweeted, wake ,p, it's launch day. missioecades ago, they blasted alk on a mission to do what no had done before. aalk on the moon. henthey did it. "apollo 11" was the source of national pride back then and
8:03 am
actually remains so 50 years later. in a new cbs news poll, 40% of americans say no national event has given them as much pride as that moon landing. tony dokoupil joins us from kennedy space center. tony, talking about moods, what's the mood there? >> i'd have to say extremely excited is an understatement. people are gathered here to celebrate this historic day. dozens showed up this morning to be here for the exact moment "apollo 11" took off from launch pad 39, a at 9:32 a.m. back in 1969. four whole days later on july 20th, "apollo 11" landed on the moon surface with an estimated 650 million people watching on television. neil armstrong and buzz aldrin planted and american flag that morning. neil armstrong, age 38, same age as i will uttered that phrase no one will ever forget. that's one small step for one giant leap for mankind. walter cronkite anchored the launch and landing for cbs news.
8:04 am
back then we into with two young kids about the launch. >> 100 years ago they would think it's crazy to fly up there and everything. >> it's not so crazy now. >> no. >> how about you? >> i think it's interesting. it will probably solve the population explosion and everything if we can settle people up there. >> reporter: in our next half hour, i'll take everyone on tour of the kennedy space center. something you'll only see this morning. they let us walk a mile in the astronaut's space shoes to see what the moments were like just before launch. the saturn 5 rocket that sent the astronauts into space, it was and is the tallest and most powerful rocket ever built. they put it together in the building behind me. just wait until you see how large it is on the inside. >> all right. can't wait. thank you, tony. democrats and some republicans are speaking out against president trump's racist tweets about four democratic women. house democrats introduced a
8:05 am
resolution condemning the president's comments. mr. trump told lawmakers, who are women are color and american citizens, to go back to their countries. the house could vote today on that resolution. so far at least 29 republicans have criticized the president's words. >> yesterday the four women apparently targeted by the president -- he didn't name them specifically -- slammed his comments and racist and called for his impeachment. a short time ago president trump defended his tweets writing, rebu quote, those tweets were not racist. i don't have a racist bone in my body. >> ibram kendi, director of nti-racist research and policy s iner at american university in washington, d.c. he's made the trip to join us at onsidered this morning. good to see you. >> good morning. people us to the history of go back where you came from? >> why is it considered a racist statement? i know it made a lot of people alinge when he said it. probn the 19th century many
8:06 am
reformers, thought the way to oflve the race problem, specifically negro problem, was a send back the blacks. it started with jefferson in 1877 and up to abraham lincoln. t it's never said of caucasians nd white people of european descent. >> never. it's assumed it's their country. people of color, it's assumed it's not their country. >> some of the president's supporters have called his tweets inappropriate, not racist. >> first i say there's no such thing as not racist. mething racist and anti-racists. racists suggest something wrong or right, superior or inferior t inheren normal plecans are whites tare america. >> prdea suggests that somehow
8:07 am
people of color are not ters say. raat's deeply racist. >> i heard one of his supporters say they are not racist because in the tweets he never mentions race. how can it be -- i heard someone say, he never mentions race, how can it be considered racist. >> poll taxes, grandfather clauses, these are voting suppression bills widely considered by americans to be racist but there was no racial language in them. fordon't have to have racial therege in an idea or even in a golicy to be racist. it's about the outcome. are you suggesting there's something wrong with a particular group, creating inequity? that's the true measure of in s whether something is racist. >> what role do republicans play in checking the president about these comments. you hear them say it's unacceptable, it's divisive, people are frustrated, but some of them are not really calling out this behavior as racist. what role do they play in sort of helping move this
8:08 am
conversation forward or get a better understanding of how our president can say that and some people feel that's not offensive. >> i think republicans should play the same role as all americans, that is to identify racism when they see it and to say that america is not going to stand for it. this is a bipartisan issue. this is an issue that cuts across lines. either where a nation of immigrants, either a nation where everyone is included or whether a nation of white people. i think we have to decide -- republicans need to decide what type of nation are they going to stand up for. repeatedly condemned racism and bigotry in all forms. >> so every group of racists in american history have condemned bigotry and racism in all forms except their form. slave owners condemned it. segregationist condemned it. mass incarcerators condemn it. they all condemn it but deny
8:09 am
their own racism. that's essential to racism. >> congresswoman ilhan omar came under fire for some of comments she made, some divisive things. should she be criticized? do you see comparisons between her remarks and what the president said as the same? >> i do not. >> why? >> she was very specific in criticizing the policies of a country. in this case, the country was israel. trump has specifically criticized racial groups of people. >> like what? >> when he said that mexicans are rapists. when he said black people -- that a trait of blacks is laziness. this is a condemnation of a racial group of people. that is effectively racism. when we criticize a try's poli, is not -- when you criticize israeli policies
8:10 am
that's not antisemitic but when you say something wrong where juice that is. >> can you criticize racist tweets and not be a racist. >> what you do, what you say, what policies you support determines whether you're being racist or anti-racist. no, if you say things that are racist, you're racist. just like if you say things anti-racist the next minute you're being anti-racist. what we do are effectively who we are in that moment. >> the people that don't criticize those remarks, are they racist? people say i like his policies. i don't like he said that but i like some of his policies. >> so when you have a politician who is mass producing and circulating ideas, racist ideas as ones i just described, saying that immigrants from the south are criminals bev says anything about immigrants from europe or even the north. when you ask him when he says these things and you don't challenge these things, you're
8:11 am
8:12 am

i'll get it. get to know geico and see how much you could save on renters insurance. we're celebrating 50 years since "apollo 11" blasted off we're celebrating 50 years since "apollo 11" blasted off into space. it paved the way for the future of space travel. astronaut nick hague and tris tina koch are the closest to the moon. they are on the space stage 250 miles above earth and 230,000 miles away from the moon. tony talked to the american trts ken e center. ace re began as rivalry but hague and koch joined their counterpart in cooperation and commemorating "apollo 11" mission with a message that read
8:18 am
in part, it was indeed a giant leap for the people of the earth. i into with them earlier about the apollo mission and nasa's plans to return to the moon by 2024. i'm joined by astronauts nick hague and christina koch. good morning, guys. >> good morning, tony. it's a pleasure to be with you. >> it looks like you've been having some fun this morning. i've been watching flips and turns, a lot of fun in anti-gravity. i guess my first question is here we are 50 years from the "apollo 11" mission. as you twirl and orbit in space, what does it mean to you? >> i think what it means to us is a great inspirational moment to think back to what the teams were able to accomplish when they really put their minds to something and they took on the challenge that was so huge that they knew it would alter the course of history. we feel connected to that event because we're so honored to be part of the space program today and to continue their legacy. we're in a period now where we're able to explore the
8:19 am
frontiers of science and uncover and unlock amazing secrets that help to benefit life on earth. so feeling that connection and that inspiration is really what it means to us today. >> nick, you've had the experience of a phairy near abort after launch. in fact, it was a full abort. with that in mind, can you help us understand what the "apollo 11" astronauts must have been thinking as they prepared for launch 50 years ago this morning? >> you know, i think that every hat'strapped themselves into a rocket thinks the same things. you've spent many years training for that moment to try to do everything perfect and to -- if something doesn't work right with the system to figure out how to work around it. that's what we train for. there's a massive team on the ground that prepares you for that. so that's what gives you the confidence going in, knowing that you've got this gigantic
8:20 am
team of 100,000 or hundreds of thousands of people that are supporting you and making it all possible. they are as committed to making it a successful mission as you are. and so the second time i got into the rocket, i was just as confident as the first time i got into the rocket and it's because of that team. >> hey, christina, you said that being in space and seeing the perspective of the earth from above, the so-called overview effect, has reminded you that we are one on this planet. can you talk about about how one's perspective changes being in space and what it might mean if everybody got that perspective? >> you're exactly right. the perspective of looking down on the earth from here is a big reminder that as humans were most fundamental aspects of who we are, and that we're way more alike than we are different. those differences are just as exciting, and they often arise from just the amazing geographical conditions of where
8:21 am
we are on the planet. i think the apollo astronauts had an even more amazing perspective of earth. the photograph, the famous photograph of earth rise, earth taken from the moon, really showed us that we are on one planet, and that that planet is what sustains us all and what we have in common. if everyone had the opportunity to see that, we would certainly know that deep down we are all the same and that we can accomplish the best things and the greatest things when we work together as humans. >> ain't it true. nick hague will return to the earth in the fall. christina koch will remain in orbit until february 2020 at which time she will have set a record for the longest single spaceflight by a woman. i'll send it back to you guys. i want to underscore what christina had to say, from the perspective of space, all the astronauts say, we are one planet. >> we can't wait for her to return and spread that message. thank you, tony.

my story is british computing pioneer and legendary world war ii code breaker alan turing will be the new face on britain's 50-pound note, worth about $62. this is very significant. turing cracked -- helped lead a team that cracked the nazi code in world war ii that turned the course of the war. he designed a computer that was a machine that was a forerunner of the modern computer. but what became tragic was he was prosecuted in the '50s for homosexuality which was then illegal. he died a couple of years later at the age of 41. queen elizabeth ultimately pardoned him posthumously. he was played by benedict cumberbatch in "the imitation game." finally he gets an honor that he deserves for all that he's done for the world, in fact. he was chosen from among 227,000 nominees. alan turing. >> well deserved. i'll go last. it has to do with women's soccer. can't get enough of these women. neither can procter and gamble. why? they're throwing their support behind the women's national team
