6:03 am
sexually assaulting children. >> delia goncalves is live with a preview of today's proceedings. good morning. >> reporter: no doubt is will be a very emotional day in court. sandusky himself expected to be in the courtroom. he faces 52 counts of child sexual abuse. at least eight of the ten accusers are set to testify in the trial we're told. according to the judge, they must use their real names. so far they've only been identified by number. prosecutors will give graphic detail on the type of sexual acts that occurred and where. many of these alleged attacks happened on campus, hotels, sandusky's car, even a local middle school. the state's attorney says the most recent case happened in 2009. however, the defense is expected to question the credibility of the accusers' stories and the initial report by then grad student michael mcqueary who told investigators he saw sandusky assaulting a boy in a shower back in 2002 but prosecutors now say he was
6:04 am
off by a whole year. >> the jury is going to be asking itself if mike mcqueary who has no dog in this hunt is making up a story, could these others witnesses be making up a story as well. >> any humiliating, embarrassing experience in their past life that has a bearing on their believability potentially may be revealed to all the world in this trial. >> reporter: the allegations sparked outrage on campus and this riot when legendary coach joe paterno was let go for his knowledge of the allegations and investigators say he did nothing about that knowledge of the allegations. he has since died of lung cancer. coming up at 6:30, a look back at the scandal and a shocking interview that jerry sandusky himself did with bob kostas. you'll want to hear his words yourself. >> delia goncalves with that live update in our satellite center this morning. today the d.c. city council will take its final vote on the new budget for the district.

6:14 am
measurements would improve navigation which was of course important for trading or navy power. >> reporter: scientists decided by measuring the timing and angles of venus crossing the sun from various points on earth, that they could calculate the distance from earth to sun. but this triangulation required dispatching hundreds of astronomers from nearly a dozen nations to far flung corners of the globe. they dragged cumbersome equipment like this to the arctic circle, the tip of africa and siberia. what kind of terrain? >> esk basically. it's -- everything basically. eight a very vicious hostile environment. >> reporter: captain james cook's voyage to tahiti was a mission to report the transit. in philadelphia an inventor was obsessed with planning for the transit. he's written it was a great success except for a mysterious six-minute gap. >> he's so excited that when
6:15 am
venus finally appears on the sun, he faints missing the beginning of the most important scientific most of his life. those 18 century measurements were in fact pretty close. they projected the distance to the sun as between 92 and 97 million miles. the actual distance we now know is 93 million miles. >> you can check out the transit of venus tonight at the national air and space mao seeup. there's an expert talk inside the museum that starts at 5:45 and then you'll head outside just after 6:00 for a watch party on the national mall. you can also head to nasa goddard in greenbelt, maryland. that begins at 5:00 at the visitors center. if you miss it, december 2117 is the next time. >> when is the party at your house? >> 6:10 is when the transit will start. party at my house.
