line and that might be an american. >> and i wonder about this noble idea of the private industry sort of facilitating space exploration. are we seeing a creation of the wealthy a husbandment park where the rich and famous get to have a thrill? >> i think they can take this analogy back to the 20s and 30s when we first started carrying airmail on commercial aviation carriers, and that turned out to develop the commercial aviation industry. so you can argue that back in the very beginning of that, that was for the rich and wealthy patrons, but now, of course, it's opened to everybody. it's not going to happen overnight. we expect that to happen in commercial space flight as well. >> and what are we going gain as a nation out of sending wealthy people into space for fun. >> before we send wealthy people, we'll be sending astronauts. we're not necessarily wealthy people and need to do that

after studying 250,000 men for decades. researchers have never found the psa test to save lives. what other test is on the market that is safer and more effective than the psa? >> the psa is the test and what we need is a better test so that we can find cancer where it exists and we can distinguish between fast aggressive cancer that can be deadly and cancer that is so slow growing, it's not going to be a cause of death. so, we need better research, and we need more research on a better screening device. >> and, karen, do you know, does this recommendation apply to men of all ages? >> yes, all ages. >> and if they're diagnosed previously with prostate cancer, does that apply to them as well? >> that is a different issue and becomes a surveillance issue and this is a screening recommending a from the u.s. psps. >> and are all doctors on board
new with this? i understand the psa is commonly mentiond when men go in for their office visit. >> it is, and there is clearly going be a kind of shaking out period and, i would say again n that shaking out period what, men need to do is to have a conversation with the center dr.s and be a part of the decision making about to screen or not. >> and important to be your own best advocate. >> absolutely. >> thank you for being with us tonight. >> thank you. back to the situation. a lot of serious rain and some spotty showers off and on throughout the day. nothing too bad. >> and generally a prettier day than yesterday and what are we looking out for this evening? >> and some more sunshine, laura, less rain in the day and we expect for some are showers and thunderstorms out there this evening and we're not seeing a great deal of that and just showed the tower cam and let's go to the radar and show
