welcome to "cbs this morning." a new first in space exploration this morning. a manmade probe is clinging to a comet that is traveling at nearly 84,000 miles an hour, but yesterday's rough landing could hamper the 10-year-old mission. >> the probe bounced before attaching to the comet surface. charlie d'agata is in darmstadt where mission control are receiving data. charlie, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. there are a lot of relieved scientists this morning. they made contact with the spacecraft more or less on time. it bounced big time twice. it's now sending pictures home. this is the first image ever to be taken on the comet's surface and it confirms that the philae craft landed.apparently it boun.
there was a bigger jump in about six minutes. we're on the surface. what we don't know is where we are and exactly how we are there. >> reporter: the mother ship rosetta lost radio contact for hours, entirely expected as the comet rotated. although it has power and onboard instruments are still doing their job, they had to wait until today to reconnect and find out what's going on. but optimism remains high after yesterday's landing. this is the moment the european space agency knew they made space history. when their tiny spacecraft sent back the message, it was alive and well. it was a combination of a 20-year dream. the kind of dedication that borders on the obsessive. one of the agency's top personnel, matt taylor, had the
mission tattooed on his leg. >> it's the excitement of these operational challenges, the journey, the seemgly impossible mission from the get-go. >> by the way, that first big bounce was two hours. now today scientists are trying to figure out what kind of terrain it came down in, whether it's more like a sandbox or an ice sheet. they do think it landed somewhere in the shadow because the solar panels aren't gets the sunlight they need to recharge the batteries quickly. >> that's amazing stuff. thank you, charlie d'agata. this morning all 50 states will see freezing temperatures. several states are dealing with subzero cold. forecasters say the lows in casper, wyoming, will get minus 16. denv denver, you're bad too. you'll plunge to minus 15 causing airport delays and 7 in minneapolis. they gathered together a shovel brigade to get ready for

after an attack. a group of protesters called them killers and put bags over theiring hes. it was ugly and disturbing. clarissa, good morning. >> good morning. turkish government has already arrest 12 people for the assault. they just came off the "uss ross" for a stop in turkey's capital. the attack took place in broad daylight in a touristy part of istanbul. >> because we define you as murderers, as killers, we want you -- we want you to get off of our land. >> members of a turkish nationalist group surrounded the sailors who were not in uniform. they pelted them with paths of orange dye. >> yankee, go home, they chanted
before forcing the hood over the head of one of the sailors. the hood appeared to be a reference to an incident in 2003 when american troops captured turkish soldiers in northern iraq and put hoods over their heads. it was an episode that was made into a turnish move "valley of the wolves: iraq." this man is the head of the extra technologicallying for international studies. >> the most recent opinion poll shows 70% of turn eric turkish toward it. they's reports of them being involved in nefarious activities against the turks.
>> none of them were hurt. they immediately returned to their shape. both the u.s. and turkey appear to be treating this as an isolated incident. norah? >> clarissa, thanks so much. president obama meets with the president of myanmar to discuss democracy and human rights. he said the work is not done in the country that just emerged from decades of military rule. before he left for asia he warned the government it's not moving fast enough to create a free society. and, of course, he'll meet later on with ang san suu kyi later on as well. russia's defense minister says the country will expand military air patrols farther from "i" borders. it includes the gulf of mexico and the caribbean sea. russia says it's for training exercises. pentagon officials says russia needs to conduct those operations safely. in washington this morning
they're ready to approve a pipeline. democrats blocked it for six years. congress is expected to vote today on the keystone xl project. say the senate will vote next week. nancy cordes is on capitol hill with the story behind that sudden turnaround. nancy, good morning. >> good morning. you will not be surprised to hear that it is all about politics, and democrats tries to save the seat of democratic senator mary landrieu whose race has gone to a runoff. louisiana is an oil and gas statement the pipeline is very popular there. the democrats thought giving landrieu something she has been asking for years might boost her chances at home. landrieu insisted it has nothing to do with politics. >> if taking my name off of this bill helps it to pass, go right ahead. this is not about credit. it is not about glory. it is not about politics.
it is about getting our work done. >> republicans, of course, want to deny landrieu the credit, and so they promptly announced that the house will vote on its own keystone pipeline bill which they're called, i'm serious, the cassidy keystone solution after landrieu's opponent, louisiana's bill cassidy. they said his vee u have not changed, that he still believes the state department should determine if this project goes forward. democrats have long had concerns about the environmental impact of the pipeline but they frankly see the writing on the wall, which is that republicans are going to pass it right away as soon as they take control of the senate in january. norah? all right, nancy, thank you so much. a magnitude of 4.8 earthquake is intensifying concerns about quakes in kansas. more than 90 have hit the state
this year alone. yesterday's quake struck outside wichita. the ground also shook in oklahoma. video captured the moment. >> we're having an earthquake. >> our affiliate kwch was interviewing a judge when nature intervened. no injuries are reported. earthquakes are rare east of the rockies. the largest ever recorded in kansas was 5.1 magnitude and that was all the way back in 1867. >> the judge was very calm. we are having an earthquake. didn't even blink. scathing criticism from doctor this morning about the soaring cost of generic prescription drugs, the ones, you know, that we think are much cheaper. make up 86% of the prescriptions in this country. a particular piece spells out the staggering price hikes. our dr. holly phillips is with us this morning. good morning. >> good morning, charlie. >> what is the status for
patients? >> it's an unsettling reminder that the drug industry is still very much for profit. looking at the data, two-thirds of the generic drugs increased in price. one-third decreased, but those increases are really dramatic. if you take a drug like doxey sigh clean, i prescribe that all the time. it's used for lyme disease, an antibiotic. it increased by 5%. another pill used for blood pressure the price went up over 2500%. >> that is a big, big jump. >> absolutely and very unsust n unsustainab unsustainable. they really pointed out one problem which is consolidation within the industry. essentially to say that very simply if you have eight different companies making a drug, they need to compete with each other to keep prices low to entice consumers. if you have one drug company
making a drug, they basically can set the price and do whatever they want. >> i read the new england journal of medicine and pointed it out we believe it should be competition for the market. this is a business story, too, that's affecting a lot of people who need and take a lot of pills. >> absolutely. and it's very hard for the consumer to protect themselves. for instance even if you have a drug that's on the drug plan and it increases 2500%, you're going to see that in your co-pay. that's not going to be very realistic going forward. >> thanks so much, holly. this morning new recordings out this morning reveal the quick reaction of teachers and students after a school shooting in suburban seattle last month. one teacher told a 911 dispatcher about the chaos at marysville-pilchuck high. john blackstone looks at what
those calls reveal. >> 911, we have a shooting, marysville-pilchuck high school cafeteria. we have the shooter. we have many injured. marysville-pilchuck high school. we need an emergency right away. my name is megan silberberger, i'm a teacher. >> first grade social studies teacher mary silberberger ran toward the cafeteria, not away from it. >> i'm in the cafeteria. i have the shooter. one shooter. blood is everywhere. i do not see the gun. i'm looking at him. >> is he awake. >> i need help. i need help now. >> silberberger was looking at 15-year-old gunman jaylen fryberg shortly after he opened fire on five of his friends and fellow classmates killing four of them. frantic phone calls from worried parents flooded 911 dispatch. >> what's your emergency? >> my daughter just texted me
that shotted were fired at our high school. other kids have run from their classroom. >> as students fled the high school, silberberger stayed inside the cafeteria with the critically injured students and the gunman who turned the weapon on himself. >> i tried to stop him before he shot himself. i do not know his name. >> okay. you say he has shot himself? >> he shot himself. >> dozens of calls were made by students, staff, and parents in the first hour after the shooting that have not yet been released, but these new audio recordings are providing insight into those first terrifying moments after the shooting began. for "cbs this morning," john blackstone, san francisco. this morning investigators are trying to determine what triggered a terrifying drama high above new york city. a scaffolding collapse left two workers dangling more than 800 feet up in the air. jericka duncan is in lower manhattan's battery park where a high-altitude rescue unfolded

another was lowered from the roof. >> we gained access to do that. >> reporter: rescuers determined the safest way to get to the men was to slice through a window of the skyscraper, a semblance of rebirth of 9/11. >> we're up to 68. john's on the way up. >> reporter: it took emergency crews 45 minutes to cut through layers of glass. the inner layer was a half-inch sick. a diamond saw was cut, big enough for the men to climb through. the men were taken to bellevue hospital, treated for mild hypothermia and released. officials say the operation was successful because of the coordination between first responders. >> the agency trains for this on a continue yugs basis, and the results today, two men are going to go home tonight. >> the two men were suspended

"the new york times" in a
glowing 2012 profile said he not only put together the basic principles of the proposal but helped congress draft the specifics of the legislation. as a consultant, the government paid gruber, an m.i.t. economics professor, nearly $400,000 for that work. his comments in lectures more than a year ago have added to critics' discontinuing distrust of the law and the administration. >> the architect left out saying they had to lie and he's joking about it with his fellow economics buddies. >> gruber now is backing off those remarks, going on msnbc to apologize. >> i was speaking off the cuff and i basically spoke inappropriately and i regret having made those comments. >> but on the defensive once again, the administration and its allies say gruber's remarks weren't just inappropriate but wrong. >> every single time this issue

he loves me, he loves me not he loves me, he loves me not he loves me! warm and flaky in fifteen... everyone loves pillsbury grands. make dinner pop. a man who doesn't stand still. but jim has afib, atrial fibrillation an irregular heartbeat, not caused by a heart valve problem. that puts jim at a greater risk of stroke. for years, jim's medicine tied him to a monthly trip to the clinic to get his blood tested. but now, with once-a-day xarelto®, jim's on the move. jim's doctor recommended xarelto®. like warfarin, xarelto® is proven effective to reduce afib-related stroke risk. but xarelto® is the first and only once-a-day prescription blood thinner for patients with afib not caused by a heart valve problem, that doesn't require regular blood monitoring. so jim's not tied to that monitoring routine. gps: proceed to the designated route.
not today. for patients currently well managed on warfarin, there is limited information on how xarelto® and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. xarelto® is just one pill a day taken with the evening meal. plus, with no known dietary restrictions, jim can eat the healthy foods he likes. don't stop taking xarelto®, rivaroxaban, unless your doctor tells you to. while taking xarelto®, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto® may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto® can cause serious bleeding, and in rare cases, may be fatal. get help right away if you develop unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising, or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto®, watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto® if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto®, tell your doctor about any conditions such as kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. jim changed his routine. ask your doctor about xarelto®.
woman after what could have been a deadly heart attack, but now she faces medical bills that could send her into bankruptcy because an ambulance took her to a hospital outside of her medical plan. dean reynolds is in madison, wisconsin, where a state law could be part of the problem. when you were taken by ambulance, were you unconscious? >> i was. >> reporter: in september of last year megan almost died from a heart attack. >> you had no idea what was going on when you were taken to the hospital. >> no, not at all. >> but she recovered and got the best of care. >> i owe them and the ambulance
drivers my life. >> dr. stewart watson is with st. mary's. >> we treat patients that come in without regard to their insurance coverage and ability to play. >> reporter: and that unfortunately is the problem because st. mary's was out of the network of hospitals covered by her insurer, blue cross/blue shield. she received bills of more than $300,000. blue cross agreed to pay what it would have had st. mary's been in its network, but that meant rothbauer was on the hook for close to $150,000 that wasn't covered. st. mary's swallowed almost 90% of their services but that still left about $40,000 to be paid separately to their doctors. wisconsin state law says a person needing emergency care must be taken to the nearest hospital. what's frustrating about this case is that an in-network
hospital was only three blocks away and that rothbaurer's bill there would have been only $1,500. she hopes the hospital and company can do more. >> i kind of wish they would lock themselves in a room and go figure it out together, hash it out. >> reporter: meg gaines is a health care advocate. >> what i think people don't realize is health care is primarily a business. the reality is that until you get sick and have to use an insurance policy, you can't and don't understand what it's about. >> reporter: there's no definitive data on how often patients are taken to hospitals not covered by their insurance, but the officials at st. mary's say they believe rothbauer's case is frustrating. >> i didn't have a choice. i didn't have a choice then. i don't have a choice now. >> reporter: for "cbs this morning" dean reynolds, madison,
wisconsin. >> we should know her insurance through bls/blue shield of utah and in a statement to "cbs this morning" they said, quote, in a medical emergency, when a member is taken to a non-con tracking hospital, we pay for care at the in-network hospital. we hope that hospitals and fiss will also work with members on any additional costs. we will continue to work with our partners in wisconsin to advocate on our members' behalf. >> what do you do when you need to get to

it is thursday, november 13th, 2014. welcome back to "cbs this morning." more real news ahead including the new images from a spacecraft that landed on a comet. we'll ask astronaut john gruns felt what nasa hopes to learn from the mission. but first here's a look at today's "eye opener" at 8:00. >> there are a lot of relieved happy scientists this morning. >> this disturbance is going to spread east. that will bring topical snow from the great lakes into new england. it is going to be a mess. >> turkish authorities have arrested 12 people for the assault. the american sailors ha just come off the ship. >> it's all about politics and
democrats trying to save the seat of democrat senator mary landrieu. >> i think it's dramatic and an unsettling reminder that the generic drug scene is still very much for profit. >> they're the biggest in the country. nearly half a billion dollars of goods come here every day. all of it could be at risk because of the alleged slowdown by workers here on the docks. >> did you want to be in the world book of guinness records when you were a kid? >> no, i didn't. >> you want to do something that nobody else has ever done. that's a good thing. >> that would be nice. i need to get more ambitious. >> what do you want to do? >> i don't know. what do you want to do? do you want to get out of here? >> announcer: this morning's "eye opener" at 8:00 present ed by -- this morning the world gets
its first views ever from the surface of a comet. the probe bounced at least twice before attaching itself to the surface. >> astronaut john grunsfeld has been involved in many flights. he's the associate administra administrator. he joins us at the table. john, welcome. >> thank you. very exciting day. >> i know. where were you? where were you watching? >> i was watching at nasa headquart headquarters. we had everyone crowded around the scene. this was seven hours of terror for the european space agency and all of its team members. >> why is it so exciting? >> because it's the first time we ever landed on a comet and the first time we've been up close and personal with comets. why comets. people have always been interest. they would portend bright futures, wars, crops, things
like. but in recent times we realize that comets are part of the building blocks of our solar system. they may be our only rosetta stone of what we're made of, the water that we're made of, the organics. it could be that comets are the source of water on earth. >> so what data do you u hope they'll get up there? >> of course, this is a very detailed science mission. people have been working on this for decades. and we're going to learn about the structure, the composition. right now it looks like it's kienl of exceedingly burnt toast but we know there's water there too. we're going to learn about the water content. specifically does the water -- does the actual atomic components of the water -- does it look like earth's water? that's one of the big questions. >> explain this mission. this particular comet i understand is 2 1/2 miles wide, was going 40,000 miles an hour. the fact that it bumped just for a little bit, it was incredible that it made it, that it stuck,
right? >> pilots know that any landing that's a safe landing is a good landing and philae looks like it landed three times. that highlights how difficult this was. keep in mind that this little spacecraft that could was completely on its own. now, speed is not much of a factor because the spacecraft rosetta and philae were both going the same speed as the comet, so from the spacecraft perspective it was gently floating down but it takes about 20 minutes for the signal to get back to earth. so we were all spectators. >> what was the biggest question it might answer? >> i think the central question is does the comet water look like water on earth? but there are many, many different questions about organics. >> the director said this is a big step for human civilization. >> i think from a broad perspective, we have the curiosity rover on mars and phil
lay with rosetta rotating around. and in 2015 nasa will lead with the european space agency is the parter. it will touch and go and bring pieces back. this is the golden age. for humanity, this is our first time for venturing out and landing on a comet. it's the first time of landing on a comet. >> your enthusiasm is infectious, john. thank you so much. great to have you here. >> thank you so much. the cost front is reaching the east coast and deep south. freeze warnings are in place as far south as louisiana. early morning temperatures are below zero again in the rockies. the big chill is causing flight delays at place like denver international. more snow is likely today in michigan and wisconsin where a big snowstorm set records earlier this week. >> president obama met with the president of myanmar, a country moving from deck tater ship to democracy. he dictated the nation once
known as burma will have, quote, a completely new day. major garrett is traveling with president obama in myanmar's almost new capital. he's been looking around that city about 200 miles north of the capital. >> reporter: the word of president obama's visit is simple enough. two regional summits. big flags and speeches. the why of naypitaw, the capital city, is more elusive. it was ruled for decades. the generals announced nap pea tau has been there since 2006 and it's been a ghost town ever since. the grand parliament building an exercise in government exec says. this is part of its unoccupied
extravaganc extravagances. as you can see, the traffic isn't a problem. it's one of the few cities in this country with uninterrupted electricity and rare white elephants brought in as a tourist attraction and placed next to this buddhist pagoda, a s shiny understudy. more than 100 million people live here but they're very hard to find. the market has more shopkeepers than shoppers and the reach for greatness seems misplaced unlike the donkeys and carts call this enigma of a city home. >> i wish i was on that trip. i've been obsessed with burma and myanmar and especially aung san suu kyi.
there are so many people who want to invest in burma. it's rich with a lot of natural resources. >> she always calls it burma. >> a lot of people still do. next, norah o'donnell reporting from myanmar coming soon. ahead, queen latifah gets ready to shake things up tomorrow night. >> shake your shoulders and rat it out. now you know how to do that. >> i do knowow how do that. >> all right, carter

it on mice first. >> in this country it's awesome to be a mouse. they have every advantage. the trials are going on and people with neural cognitive decline today. there's another study where they took electrical stimulation in part of the brain that's involved in the connection and they actually showed improvement in comenyive function. so a lot is happening now. the reason we want to delay the kind of brain function is the ability to reverse it will happen over the next couple of years. >> all right. dr. agus. thank you. >> one important point you left out, one of the most important ways to improve cognitive function is to watch "cbs this morning." >> there you go. shameless plug. i like it. >> only on "cbs this morning" we'll reveal who tops the list on fourth's business magazine of the year. that's next on "cbs this morning." >> announcer: cbs "morning rounds" sponsored by campbell's healalthy request. helping you live a heart healthy
