7:01 am
people. we sit down with secretary of state hillary clinton. but we begin with a look at today's eye opener, your world in 90 seconds. and the oscar goes to "the artist." >> a silent film makes the loudest noise. >> merci beaucoup! i love you! >> good evening. >> we bow to our fellow nominees. >> please wrap up. i'm wrapping up. i'm sorry. i'm freaking out. >> oh, come on. her again. breaking news in ohio. four students reported wounded in a school shooting. >> we are told by the sheriff that at least one suspect believed to be a student was taken into custody. >> people ask me when will the economy turn around? oh, how about 11:00 or 12:00 at night when they declare me the
7:02 am
winner in november? >> republican hopefuls make their closing arguments in michigan. >> now it's tight or i'm slightly ahead. i'm planning on winning here in michigan and also in arizona. >> this is not the time to decide that we're done here. afghan police say at least nine people have been killed in a suicide car bombing outside the airport. >> seven u.s. troops were hurt when demonstrators threw a grenade at a military base. a plot has been foiled to assassinate president the putin. >> the trial was delayed a week giving bp more time to settle. all that and all that matters, -- >> fight club! >> and then we're going to go kill hitler. >> on "cbs this morning." >> it's ok for you.
7:03 am
if somebody asks you what you are wearing, you say kim jong il. >> have fun this evening. ah the academy awards. welcome to "cbs this morning." we begin in hollywood where everything old was new again at last night's academy awards. >> the big winner, "the artist." the silent film winning best oscar. lee cowan is in beverly hills this morning. >> good morning. just a little after 7:00 here on the west coast. some of the parties are just ending, and for the academy, they might have been a little bit overly nostalgic last night, but that was the point given the fact that the silent movie "the artist" stole their hearts. right from the start, sunday's academy awards looked to be from another era. even the stage looked like a movie theater of old. and billy crystal's vintage jokes fit right in. >> we got puppets, acbotrobatacrobats.
7:04 am
a pony away from a par miztvah. >> it seemed fitting given that a silent movie is what charmed the academy. >> "the artist." >> the french film "the artist" took home five oscars in all, including best picture best director, and best actor. jean dujardin. >> if george valentine could speak, he'd say, mercy! >> i have done battle every single day of my life. >> the best actress oscar also went to a throwback role that of british prime minister margaret thatcher channelled by meryl streep. she is the most nominated actress of all time but until last night hasn't won an oscar since "sophie's choice" in 1982. >> when they called my name i had this feeling i could hear half of america going, oh, no. >> period films about paris were big winners too. "hugo" set in the 1930s tied "the artist" with five oscars.
7:05 am
woody allen's "midnight in par its" best original screen play. it even stretched to the watch party at the roosevelt hotel, where the oscars began in 1929. those first oscars lasted only 15 minutes. they didn't even have an award for best supporting actor or actress back then. this year those supporting awards went to two very strong performances and two very different films. >> i'm wrapping up. i'm sorry. i'm freaking out. thank you, word. >> it was the role of a feisty 1960s mississippi maid in "the help" that got octavia spencer her oscar. and the man who came out as gay in his 70s gained christopher plummer some long awaited recognition. >> where you have been all my life? >> at 82 he is the oldest actor to ever win an oscar on a night that seemed as much about the past as the present.
7:06 am
not only big blockbuster movies to celebrate this year. "the artist" wasn't exactly a titan at the box office. and no big surprises or upsets at last night's awards, but still when it comes to glitz and glamor, the oscars remains the granddaddy of all awards shows. >> a little later, we'll talk with the man behind "the artist," harvey weinstein, and get his reaction to being back in the winner's circle once again. now to that breaking news out of ohio, where a suspect is in custody after a shooting. four students were wounded in the attack. chardon high school is about 30 miles east of cleveland. it is under lockdown at this hour. john what do we know right now? >> well, the incident continues to unfold as we speak. there's a secondary search of the school continuing by s.w.a.t. teams. but what we have right now is four students shot. reports of one student in custody. according to students outside the school, that's a sophomore at chardon high school. this is a small community of
7:07 am
about 5,000 people tucked in the northeast corner of ohio. >> so what happens in the surrounding communities when you have a circumstance like this? >> well right now, within the radius of even 30 miles, you've got police departments who have been having units sent to their local schools, bringing a high profile presence, really to avoid any copycat incidents and reassure parents. >> john miller, senior correspondent, thank you very much. tomorrow's michigan primary is the next key moment in the republican presidential race. right now, the vote is too close to call which is not good news for mitt romney. and neither is the latest nationwide poll which shows rick santorum with a two-point lead over romney. chip reid is in detroit for us. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. this is a crucial moment for mitt romney. he needs to win michigan the state where he was born and raised, but with about 20 hours to go before the voting begins, it's rick santorum who's on the attack. >> for him to go out and say i
7:08 am
am somehow the liberal in this race is a joke. >> reporter: with the michigan primary in a virtual dead heat rick santorum is throwing everything he can at mitt romney. >> i don't hide. i don't hide from the public. i don't have structured events where only my friends are in front of me to take questions. and unlike governor romney who can't go after president obama on a health care bill because it's his health care bill he said he was going to be better on gay rights than ted kennedy. >> that appealed to christian conservatives continued sunday as santorum knocked kennedy's famous speech to baptist ministers where he highlighted the separation of church and state. >> to say that people of faith had no role in the public square? you bet that makes you throw up. >> reporter: romney strategy is to paint santorum as a washington insider. >> i don't think you can change washington if you've been a part of the culture of washington. >> reporter: the romney camp is already lowering expectations.
7:09 am
a key supporter said sunday whatthat while unlikely a loss in michigan could mean there's no clear front-runner going into the koigds. convention. and late sunday, santorum said if he gets the gop nomination, it would be good for the economy. >> people ask me when will the economy turn around. oh, how about 11:00 or 12:00 at night when they declare me the winner when november. >> reporter: mitt romney took a trip to florida yesterday to visit the daytona 500 as part of his effort to convince the american people that he is comfortable around ordinary people. but when he was asked if he follows nascar his answer was, quote, not as closely as some but have i some great friends who are nascar team owners. not exactly what his campaign staff was hoping he would say. charlie? >> chip, thanks. mississippi governor haley barbour is with us now, the former chairman of the republican national committee. good morning.
7:10 am
>> good morning, charlie. thanks for having me. >> there's a new poll that suggests while the republicans are fighting each other, the president's numbers are going up both on job approval as well as right track. what's going on? >> well, first of all, the economy is being ballyhooed by the administration and a lot of people in the media as if there's a great surge in the economy. fortunately, there is a little improvement in the economy, but it's anemic. this is not a real recovery. and you can still tell it on main street. and the other thing, of course when four republican candidates are contesting each other for the nomination in a hard-fought race, attention is being taken away from obama's policies and the results of those policies, which are mighty poor. and anytime we're not talking about obama's policies and the results of those policies, we're not talking about what's the best thing for republicans in the election. >> what happens if rick santorum wins michigan? does that mean it goes all the way to the convention? >> i'm not sure you can say that. but it certainly would be bad for romney.
7:11 am
this is romney's home state. he won it last time. so it would be a real setback. and if he torpwere to lose in michigan and then santorum gingrich, or both have a big day on super tuesday, then you could see an election that goes all the way to the convention. that's up to the republican voters, charlie. i can't predict what's going to happen or not. but the fact is that there is an outside possibility, and i think that's the most that there is, an outside possibility, is unusual in american politics. usually the primary voters come to a conclusion. and thus far, they haven't. but i would remind you, charlie, since you and i have been around a long time, normally -- >> thanks, governor. >> historically these nomination contests don't start until february. you know i can remember when the new hampshire primary was way up in february. so it's still mighty early in the game. >> what do you think of the rise of sort of social conservative
7:12 am
issues and rick santorum suggesting that he wanted to throw up when he heard president kennedy's speech to the baptists in texas? >> well when the president rips the constitution to shreds in terms of the rights of the catholic church religious constitutional rights, by forcing on them not contraception, but abortion pills -- >> wait governor. he was talking about president kennedy, not president obama. >> well, i was taking your question to be when the campaign turns to these issues. people are not going to ignore what the administration did. as far as the speech on president kennedy, i didn't even know it happened until i saw the little clip just a moment ago. we believe in separation of church and state. but we don't believe in freedom from religion. we believe program of religion. we don't believe that if you're
7:13 am
a christian you can't be involved in politics. that's the soviet union where that used to be the law. in our country, remember the civil rights movement was led by catholic priests, by jewish rabbis, by protestant clergymen. so -- and i assume -- i didn't hear it but i assume that's all that rick santorum was saying. >> one last question before we go to erica here. this notion of electability. it says that voters still want to vote for the republican -- send the republican nomination to the person they think is most likely, and polls continue to show that's mitt romney. why haven't you endorsed mitt romney? >> well i didn't endorse anybody in 2008. and i'm not going to endorse anybody this time. but i will say, yes, this is my 12th presidential campaign, and i have heard much much more often than ever before that issue. who's got the best chance to beat obama? i want to be for the one who's got the best chance to beat obama. >> and who do you think that is?
7:14 am
>> well republican primary voters are going to decide that. but i will tell you this. whoever we nominate barack obama is the great uniter of republicans. >> thank you, governor. >> thank you, charlie. in afghanistan, there is new violence this morning tied to the burning of islamic holy books at a nato base. the latest attack happened in eastern afghanistan. the taliban is claiming responsibility. mandy clark is in the capital of kabul. she is joining us again this morning. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. nine people are dead when a car bomb exploded outside an airport. this is just the latest attack in a week of violence that erupted after american soldiers mistakenly burned copies of the qur'an last monday. the suicide car bomber detonated outside the gates of jalalabad airport, which is also a u.s. military base. the explosion was timed as american forces were changing from night to morning guard duty. 25 people were injured,
7:15 am
including four u.s. troops. the taliban claimed responsibility, saying it was in retaliation to the qur'an burnings. the fury over the incident has seen days of protest and targeted attacks on americans. yesterday, demonstrators threw a hand grenade into a u.s. base in northern afghanistan, injuring seven american special forces. on saturday an afghan policeman murdered two american officers inside the ministry of interior. father of two colonel john lost loftis was a decorated airman. he died longside a u.s. major. the hunt for the suspected gunman is still ongoing. 25-year-old abdul sabarth's home has been raided and family detained. secretary of state hillary clinton has appealed for calm. >> we deeply regret the incident that has led to these protests.
7:16 am
we are condemning it in the strongest possible terms. but we also believe that the violence must stop. and the hard work of trying to build a more peaceful prosperous, secure afghanistan must continue. >> reporter: the big question is where does this leave the american mission? a key part of the u.s. strategy here is training up security forces in government ministries so the country can stand on its own. but when americans can't even trust the very people they are training up it helps put the whole mission in jeopardy. >> mandy, thank you. in syria, government troops are bombarding the city of homs again this morning. the attacks have gone on for weeks now. after officials in the u.s. and other countries met in tunisia demanding a cease-fire. we talked with secretary of state clinton about the violence and how to stop it. >> reporter: secretary of state hillary clinton says she
7:17 am
sympathizes with the civilians under attack in cities like homs. >> i am deeply deeply distressed for the people who are trapped under this artillery bombardment. >> reporter: the obama administration has resisted requests by arab countries and by senators like john mccain to begin the full-scale armament of the syrian dissidents. >> on the ground what is the fear of arming the rebels? >> well, what are we going to arm them with and against what? you're not going to bring tanks over the borders of turkey, lebanon, and jordan. >> reporter: another administration concern is that weapons might go to al qaeda. >> zawahiri is supporting the opposition. hamas is now supporting the opposition. are we supporting hamas in syria? if you're a military planner or a secretary of state and you're trying to figure out do you have the elements of an opposition that is actually viable we don't see that. we see immense human suffering. that is heartbreaking.
7:18 am
>> reporter: on friday secretary clinton attended the friends of syria conference where world leaders once again demanded that assad step aside. the secretary harshly described the russian and
7:19 am

back on the tee. >> last week we showed you how phil mickelson put a ball into somebody shorts. sunday one landed in a woman's shirt. >> the caddie asked if he could walk 250 yards toward the green. she politely declined. welcome back to "cbs this morning." this was not in the brochure. police in mexico are now looking for bandits who robbed 22 carnival cruise passengers as they were taking a day trip. no one was hurt. but as john blackstone reports, it's yet another black eye for the cruise industry. >> when the carnival splendor docked at long beach, passengers got off with a memorable if unpleasant vacation story.
7:31 am
an encounter with a mass gunman. >> he said in spanish he wanted everything we had. one fellow pulled his money out of his wallet and he said no. i want everything backpacks and all. >> whatever they had on them, cash, whatever was in their backpacks. >> judy left the ship to hike a nature trail. >> he had his gun brandished up here and then he brought it down and pulled up his shirt to show the knife. >> when the gunman wasn't looking, the picture was snapped. >> i was scared. we're minding our business enjoying the day. >> in a statement, a cruise line said carnival sincerely apologizes to its guests for had very unfortunate and disturbing event. carnival also owns costa cruise lines and is still recovering from the sinking of the costa concordia off the coast of italy which killed 32 passengers. more than 22 million tourists
7:32 am
head to mexico every year. >> mexico has an image problem too. it's recently been combatting worries about visitor safety with a series of commercials featuring enthusiastic returning tourists. >> then i thought, you know try to be calm, try to be cool. >> but there's a much different message coming from one tourist's unusual vacation photo. for "cbs this morning," john blackstone in san francisco. with us now, cbs news travel editor peter greenberg. peter, good morning. >> good morning, charlie. >> what do you make of this? >> you know what, it is an isolated incident but it differs. when you look at most port cities whether venice or new orleans, fort lauderdale when you have thousands of passengers going in and out. you always have an incident of street crime purse snatching. this is a more organized -- well, it was a planned event. >> there was no security with them on this hike. should that be something that is revisited and do you think it
7:33 am
will be? >> oh, it definitely will be. an issue like this, the liability goes to the cruise line simply because, while they sell the excursions to the passengers, then they subcontract out to tour -- it rests with the local cruise line. i would be surprised if there wasn't one in each excursion, not just mexico but italy and everywhere else. >> what does this mean for them and what can they do in mexico? >> believe it or not, they're expecting 52 million tourists this year. that number has not gone down. it's gone up. the only place it's gone down is -- keep in mind, if you look at the incidents, the number of incidents that are happening, the overwhelming statistics the numbers are in passengers' favor. not a problem for most americans going to mexico. >> you would think the cruise lines would want to come together and figure out how to improve their public image.
7:34 am
>> listen, they're probably in that meeting as we're speaking. bottom line, they are. they have to figure out a way around this. simply because it's a powerful image when someone takes a photograph of a gunman on a bus and they have to deal with that. once again, you have to put it in perspective about the number of incidents against the number of passengers who go. >> in terms of perspective, for someone who may have a cruise coming up in the near future if they're thinking of taking a day excursion, do they need to be concerned about it. what should they ask the cruise operator? >> what kind of security you're providing on the bus, where are we going. the cruise lines will get ahead of the story. i guarantee you. it's too damaging for them not to. i would be surprised if they don't start putting them on the excursion buses >> we hope you make your flight peter. >> i'm going right now. >> >> peter is off to an 8:00 flight. it takes a lot to keep the oscars safe. even robot. we'll show you some of the high

lapd commander matt blake. >> this is where all the big decisions are made. we have people that are out in the field and we communicate with them. we get them all of the resources that they need to handle any problem that they have. >> in the field, near the kodak theater, some of the most sophisticated tools many of them never seen by the media or the public are waiting in the wings. yes, we are in hollywood. but this is not e.t. this is the lapd's haz-mat robot, which in the event of a chemical radiological or biological attack can go into a contaminated area identify the specific deadly agent present and send the data back wirelessly. inside and outside the kodak theater, sensors send back radiation reports live and plainclothes officers wearing these backpacks patrol the crowds. >> you have people in plainclothes moving amongst the crowd at all times and looking for something covertly. >> the fbi is also on scene

deploying a high tech haz-mat csi team. special agent eric armstrong. >> our job is really to go in and collect the evidence so that we can prosecute whoever it is that did it. >> this is the bat cat. it can literally pick up a car bomb and move it away from crowds. >> it's one of the newest pieces of equipment in our arsenal. it's one of the few, if not the only one in the nation. >> at checkpoints mirrors scan the under carriages of limos. snipers are posted on rooftops and lapd's specialized vapor bomb detection canines are on the move. >> specialty is smelling suicide bombers. can pick them up from 50 feet away. >> it is a night of high fashion and dplam glamour. while security isn't always pretty, it's there behind the scenes and ready. so the only bombs in hollywood are just the really bad movies. >> are you going bald?
7:43 am
>> ooh ouch. >> with us here is mr. miller. >> what is -- when you look at this, because you did used to run this. give us an idea. how serious a threat is something like a terrorist attack? is an awards show something that would be targeted any intelligence there? >> well, it's one of the most watched events on the planet. so you take the oscars and the super bowl and you put them side by side and say for somebody who is looking to get their message out through violence in a global way, they're targets. you make that too hard by making it unattractive. >> what's the biggest challenge? >> the biggest challenge is not securing event. the biggest challenge is doing it without killing the event. you've got over -- you've got 600 cops and a few more hundred support people there and thin you've got -- 500 people not counting the show through a
7:44 am
security checkpoint and do it on time. it's a live show. there's no such thing as starting late. so it's a big deal. >> when you were running this were you always getting threats, people would somehow say even though they were not real? >> i mean i had the counterterrorism end of it. mike downing who runs counterterrorism had the overarching event and they have a great deem team doing a better job. they've got more stuff and more plans. you'd get everything from the crack pots saying i'm going to shoot somebody to terrorist threats from intelligence all right. we are looking at a couple

>> good morning. today in "healthwatch," citrus fruit and stroke. new research finds your stroke risk may be lowered dramatically by a nutrient found in citrus fruit. the study found that those who who consumed the highest amount from citrus fruit had a 19% lower risk of the most common form of stroke. in the study, flaf knowns came from oranges and grapefruits and from tring drinking them in juice. researchers pointed out that most people should increase citrus fruit through whole fruit rather than juice due to the high content in juices. the flavonoids may improve the function of blood vessels and lowering inflammations. the knew rents are found in dark chocolate and red wine. but there's something special in citrus fruit that makes it such a powerful anti-stroke weapon. just in case you're having an anti-oxidant cup of green tea

"entertainment tonight's" nancy o'dell wan os the red carpet last night and is with us. >> before you say a word you
8:02 am
know -- we had to hose down the people, the men in the crew today, nancy o'dell. whose dress is that and were you- up all night or did you just put that on for us? i must know. >> i literally just got back from the governor's ball which takes place after the oscars. so i've had no sleep. >> and she's been dancing all night. >> she looks va-va and voom. >> i hope i don't have any wardrobe malfunctions for you. >> all right, nancy o'dell. >> how was it? >> it was so great, it was so nice to see octavia spencer, i love her she's one of my favorites, she was such a great winner. i talked to her on the red carpet and i told her, octavia, everybody pretty much knows you're a lock for the oscar and i love tate taylor's response to that. and he said we know she's a lock for being america's sweetheart. i was watching the ceremony the whole time. commercial break after commercial break, she had george clooney coming up to her wanting to give her a kiss.
8:03 am
sandra bullock. all of the celebrities in there, melissa mccarthy, who was competing, was the one who led the standing ovation. so i think she truly was oscar's sweetheart. >> i saw george clooney kissing billy crystal. i wished i was laying in that bed. nancy, you talked to billy crystal last night at the governor's ball. what did he think of his performance? >> i did i practically fell in his lap. i said as i sat down at his table. i haven't been drinking, i'm just a little country girl because i can't wear high heels. i sat down at his table and talked to him. he seemed very happy and calm. i was watching him during commercial breaks at the ceremony, he was just relaxed. he said the great thing is he feels really comfortable in front of a live audience. it feels very natural to him. so i think he really enjoyed it. there was different reviews. i talked to steven spielberg after the ceremony. he said he'd love to see him come back ten more times. i know salma hayek said she thought it was a lot of the same
8:04 am
stuff over and over again. but he's gotten a lot of positive reviews. >> so other than you, who got the best dress? >> well, there was a lot of talk about the wardrobe. you're going it see all the fashion tonight on "et" because there's a lot to talk about. as far assing an ing an as far as angelina jolie and that stance. her right leg has its own twitter account and the last time i checked, angie's right leg has 10,000 hits. she comes out to the stage and the 0s cars i don't know if you could tell -- on the stage, but she pronouncedly put that right leg out so forward and i hope you got to see this. and the telecast. you know the only thing i could think of is she didn't need to stick the right leg out to be sexy. because all she does is walk into the room and she exudes sexiness. and j. lo supposedly had a wardrobe malfunction. she had a plunging neckline. i saw her up close and personal and i can tell you, i think it
8:05 am
was petals. gayle, you know what petals are, what? >> what did you say? >> i'm very familiar with petals, i never get a chance to wear them. but i'm very -- very i think i would lose my job. >> i have no idea what you're talking about. >> it's something that works. >> i'm going to send my dress to gayle to wear tomorrow. >> and then you know what? i won't have no job. i'll be calling you. if i showed up at cbs wearing that. chris, is that true or not true? if i showed up in that dress. let's talk about meryl streep for a second charlie and i were speaking before we went to you, nancy. i love that she was so happy when she won. there had been so much talk about voila davis winning. people said voila davis was a lock. what was it like in the room when the announcement said -- and the oscar goes to meryl streep? >> i've got to tell you, the crowd inside the room went absolutely crazy. i felt like i was at a football
8:06 am
game. there was so much hooting and hollering. she and octavia who got the standing ovations. and meryl's was loud. people were yelling. i think just because it was somewhat unexpected. and people don't realize because she's been nominated so many different times, she's actually only won twice before. this is only her third oscar. despite being nominated many times. but she lost 12 times in a row. i think there were a lot of people who were so excited to see her win and as you said think one of the people who were most surprised were her. take a listen to part of her speech. >> when they called my name i had this big feeling, i could hear half of america going -- oh, no oh come on! why her again? you know. but, whatever. >> you got to love her, right? >> everybody does. thanks nancy, thank you, you look great. >> thank you, guys so good to talk to you, always.
8:07 am
>> we'll have a complete wrap-up of the oscars tonight, on "entertainment tonight" and nancy will be back. i'll bet she's changing clothes by then but you can see it all tonight on "et." harvey weinstein called "the artist" the biggest gamble of his career and it paid off with five oscar nominations. we're happy to have him with us this morning. congratulations, sir. >> yes. thank you, charlie. thanks gayle. >> harvey you don't seem so excited. we're going, congratulations, you're going thank you thank you, are you just tired? >> gayle, i've been dancing on tables for the last four hours, you know. i just -- you know. >> why was this harvey the biggest gamble of your career? >> well i think that you know here's a movie black and white, silent film, you know when i first told everybody who bought this film it was right after we had won for "king's speech." who in 2012 i mean would think
8:08 am
that a movie like that could work? certainly you know it wasn't the common wisdom. here it is, it's reached the pinnacle of american success. and won five oscars. >> so what did you see, harvey that others did not? your team thought, okay, harvey not so much. what did you see that everybody else really didn't? >> i saw that the movie made people joyful. and it also made people throw out their telephones. the movie is anti-technology in a big way. the movie is just saying let's communicate. you know it's not a message movie, but it's got a message in it. it's singing, it's dancing, it's fun. you walk out of the theater enchanted. it's really an experience. almost like seeing a broadway show for movie ticket prices. >> you mentioned that you won last year for "the king's speech." but there was a time when people said harvey harvey has lost his mojo. did you ever dautoubt that you would be back on top like this? >> i think that anybody, we've
8:09 am
had great success in miramax and there were years afterwards where we didn't. of course you doubt it. and it feels so good charlie and gayle, to be able to do it again. and also to make hopefully a contribution to the idea that anybody who is watching this show now or watching oscars who has a dream to say i'm going make a certain kind of movie, against all odds that you can win it. that's the great thing about our country. this was a million-to-one shot maybe a two million-to-one shot. and the shot came in and the academy spoke loudly. >> when all the action-adventure things and all the things that appeal to especially teenagers, to see a dpim like this capture the imagination, not only the academy, but of the country. people who want to see hollywood make really, really good films. this is an example of that. do you think this is an inspiration for people to go out there and follow their dream? >> 100% that's what's -- that's the foundation of our country.
8:10 am
we came over from england and places all over the world. and immigrants built this country because they had a dream. and i think in some ways the artist celebrates that "the artist" celebrates that. you you you you

that was apollo 8. the first one to go around the moon and back. >> it launched a career of neil degrasse tyson. his latest book is called "space chronicles "requesting. neil welcome to the program. this is gayle's book. >> it's her copy. >> she's got markers. back to you, my dear. >> i was busy yesterday. have we lost our interest in space? >> yeah. well, we've lost the motivation to make it a priority. i think there's always been background space activities going on. space shuttles have been going for several decades. but my criticism of that was always that we were boldly going where hundreds had gone before. if you want to advance a space frontier, what you want to do is move that frontier out. every time you do that a whole new level of interesting curiosity is stimulated and spawned for having done so. >> do we make a difference between man flight or personhood flight and just simply going
8:40 am
there to find out everything we can sm. >> so, you can split and say, what do scientists want? as i put on my scientist cap, i would say send robots. they don't even need to eat. give them solar energy and -- but what i found is that no one names high schools afroter robots. nobody interprets the activities of robots the way we do when it's one of our own in that activity. statues are made of discoverers throughout the history of time. my sense of this is if you reengage the man program in such a way we're going places beyond earth, you can change the culture of the nation. turn it into one that recognizes that advances in science and technology are not only interesting but they're actually fundamental to the stability of our economy. >> you almost have to get the public engaged too, neil. as you point out, only 25% of the people are scientifically
8:41 am
literate. >> that's a generous fraction to put out there. >> i hear math and science, i used to go, so dull and boring. what you're trying to say, approximate we pay attention, there's so much that we need to learn and need to know. >> not only that -- >> you look around the room you see science everywhere. >> the cameras, the detectors and that gyroscopically stabilized camera that the guy walks around with. everything is science and technology driven. since the industrial revolution, all nations that have embraced innovations and science of technology have led the world economically. we're in economic doldrums right now. >> while we're not going, other countries are going. >> other countries value investments in science an engineering and recognize what force going into space plays on the attitudes of spirit of that culture. i can tell you, back in that space era, the golden era of space exploration, everybody was dreaming about tomorrow being tomorrow land. >> what do you think happened? >> because we went to the moon
8:42 am
not as app economic driver to stimulate scientific innovations in our economy, no. we went because we were at war with russia and when we found out, concluded that russia was not also going to the moon we were done. meanwhile, people at the time said we went to the moon by 1969. we'll be on mars in ten years. based on what argument do you think that will happen? because if russia is not going to mars, we're not going to mars. >> you're saying we need to go to the moon. >> we benefit frd the economic stimulation that that gave the entire country as a culture. >> we're up against a hard -- asteroids. >> 2029. >> it's going to buzz cut earth. on april 13th which happens to be a friday. point of information. that's an asteroid the size of the rose bowl that could take out the west coast of the united states. i don't want to be the laughing stock of the galaxy being the ohm species extinction. we had a space program and
8:43 am
didn't invoke it to save earth. >> i think if you were more enthusiastic, you could get us engaged, neil? >> you think he needs to juice it up? >> kick it up a notch. >> thanks for having me guys. we go from space to one of the brightest stars is jennifer aniston.
8:44 am

8:46 am
>> i was up late because i'm on east coast time. i'm flipping through the tv and friends is on. i stopped to look at it just because i knew i would be talking to you today. i wondering, that must happen to you from time to time. you're in a hotel or at home, you're flipping through and you see it. do you stop and watch from time to time? >> absolutely. >> surprise! >> what? my birthday isn't for another month. >> that's the surprise. >> what do you think? >> i get nostalgic and sit back and with pride and i kind of just -- i feel very -- it makes me happy. >> me too. >> it makes me really happy. >> me too. >> i had forgotten complete episodes that we shot. there's times i watch it just as if i'm watching for the first time. even after the tenth season there are episodes we forgotten. >> i hear that happens jennifer when we get older. we forget about things we've
8:47 am
done. you just had a birthday. >> is that selective forgetfulness sometimes? >> selective amnesia. >> you just turned 43 recently. >> that doesn't even sound right. >> i know. i wonder about that. how do you feel? >> i feel great. >> how are you? >> what is the age you really do feel? >> forget about how you look. you look great. i feel like i'm about 30s, 30. >> i get that. i feel you. >> i honestly didn't start it feel my best until i was in my 30s. physically, i was -- i started eating better and taking better care of my body in term of being physical and exercise. >> do you have hangups about your age? there are some women who turn 30, 40 50 and get very depressed and upset. >> no. >> do you have any of those hangups? >> no. i actually don't. i got depressed when i was 30. but i don't. i actually -- i think it's important every year to celebrate your birthday.

8:49 am
i'm like this is absolute rubbish. the amount of the bizarre pregnancy rumors are ridiculous. >> you know why i think it's so. people so want you to have a baby. people so want you to be happy. but there's still a misconception that people think she's not. >> if you don't have all of that. >> i think that people -- >> very narrow minded i think. that doesn't measure the level of my happiness or success in my life or my achievements. any of that. it's just truly being comfortable and not giving a crap about what other -- what other people say. >> are you at the stage that you don't care what people think? >> people i care about and people i respect, of course. i listen. but it's important to keep listening. >> me too. >> and learning. >> this is the thing about wanderlust that i thought was so fascinating. i did watch it. i have to say, it's wild. >> yes. >> it's raucous. >> raucous. >> it's fun. >> fun. >> it's jennifer like we haven't

seen you before. >> we'll give it a month. >> two weeks. >> all these people live here. this is a commune. >> intentional community. we're not a bunch of hippies sitting around playing guitar. >> i love the premise where with somebody is very successful and they just decide i am going to take a break. i'm going to do something that's totally out of the box. >> we stumble upon a commune. >> it's the type of thing i wondered, have you ever thought, not about the commune part but sort of going away where nobody knows you. >> yeah. >> have you ever thought about that in the height of all of this? >> i think about that a lot. i think about i would love to not give it all up. i definitely thought, let's get up and go and live abroad for a while. hon lest i, filming this movie, that experience happened to me. the two and a half months we were shooting in clarksville, georgia, we were in the middle of nowhere. i mean it felt like -- >> was it good? >> it was amazing. a couple of weeks go by and you realize, you're not looking over
