moon. on thursday jeff bezos unveiled a lunar lander from his company blue origin that he says will help the u.s. get back to the moon and to colonize space. nasa first landed there nearly 50 years ago when the apollo 11 astronauts touched down on july 20, 19 f 69. one region of the country played a special role in training for that historic mission, and a half century later, the city of flagstaff, arizona, is celebrating. >> they never saw this or this. if not for your the vision of men like gene shoemaker. >> it's safe to say without gene shoemaker, we would not know the moon as it existed. >> a pretty big claim but that's
5:09 am
the way they remember it. in fact, they say their body, a top gun at the u.s. geological survey made a lot of stuff happen on that historic mission. >> originally they didn't want them to pick up any. >> didn't want any television. >> are you kidding? >> not kidding. >> we worked very hard here to use tell having in our field exercises to show them how valuable it was. can you imagine no television? the famous steps -- >> as bad as they were? as bad as they were, that was absolutely iconic. >> as the story goes, shoemaker had a lot of convincing to do. >> he had to convince nasa because originally it was, rah, rah, plant the flag. >> it seems so elementary to us today. >> they didn't want to take a rock hammer. they didn't want to take anything that would hurt their suit. they didn't want us to photograph the rocks. >> gene would talk to people
5:10 am
there about the fact there's no point in going to the moon unless you're going to do some science. >> carolyn shoemaker, gene's widow, knows a thing or two about heavenly bodies. she helped discover one, a comet that broke apart in 1994 and crash-landed on jupiter bears her name. what was the sales pitch he delivered that got them? >> the idea that man could a lot on the moon if they were given the chance. >> shoemaker found that chance in an arizona town called flagstaff, nestled between phoenix and the grand canyon. the town is in full celebration of the moon landing's golden anniversary. >> yeah. this is the homage to all of the work of getting our people to the moon. >> jeff hall is the caretaker of the observatory, which has artifacts from the apollo mission on display. >> this is the guest book?
5:11 am
>> yes. they came out and signed it. you can see neil armstrong right there. flagstaff provided the astronauts a near perfect venue to see what they were going to run into on the moon. >> now we're coming up to the old telescope. >> the telescope, one of the oldest in the nation, helped map the moon for the apollo landing. >> you only get one shot when you're up on the moon and you'd better get it right and this was the perfect place to do it. >> but neil armstrong, buzz aldrin, and michael collins weren't geologists. it was up to these two to train them. >> i think the term is fly jocks. >> well, you can select whichever term you want. in any case, they were not particularly interested. but once they got into it, they found out it was really a lot of fun. >> in other words, they got a crash course in geology. they trained at a nearby cinder field and studied rock
5:12 am
formations at the meteor crater, a breathtaking hole in the earth more than 500 feet deep. it's believed to have been created from an impact approximately 50,000 years ago. >> gene shoemaker used this as his laboratory to show the astronauts how to identify different rocks once they got to the moon. >> meteor tour guide jeff beal said they didn't have much time to learn. >> they were here for two days. >> two days? that's a helluva crash course. >> but the trainees also brought common sense. >> buzz aldrin walked past this limestone and ripped his spacesuit, so they realized they had to redesign their spacesuits and make them tougher. >> reporter: with that knowledge in hand, they were off. but there was no guarantee they'd have a chance to use it. >> i was watching those guys in
5:13 am
the mission control saying you've got to pick a landing cite really soon, we're running low on fuel. and very calm neil armstrong just kept flying till he found a safe place, and he said, you have 30 seconds, 20 seconds of fuel. he got down to six or eight seconds before we landed that it with us that close. >> all of it was captured on tv. >> reporter: while walter cronkite anchored cbs's coverage from new york, his colleague broadcast it live from flagstaff, but jerry was doing his own thing from mission control. >> i was watching their heart beats until they landed or crashed. neal's was going barely over an average rate. aldrin's was going like this. >> the eagle has landed.
5:14 am
>> the eagle has landed. everybody was crying. >> crying. >> crying. >> i wasn't sure what dimension i was in. >> one giant leap for mankind. >> reporter: all that skrierngs all that know-how continues to inform those here in flagstaff where the mission continues. these cinders simulate the moon's surface. with a renewed pledge for space formation, the usgs is once again training astronauts. lauren edgar is already starting the countdown. so they'll be training in the same spaces and pla iss that the apollo 11 team did. >> absolutely. it will be pretty inspirational for them to be literally walking in the footsteps of the explorers that went before them and hope that some day they can go out and make their own footsteps. >> that brings us back to gene shoemaker. >> he really wanted to be the first man on the moon. >> really. >> yes. >> a medical decision denied him
5:15 am
of any shot of getting into space, but after he died in a car crash in 1999, a lunar probe carried his ashes there. >> your husband is the only human being who's buried on the moon. >> yes. >> that's all she said. >> i tell you, such a full circle moment. they're still learning so much from those rocks. from 1969 to 1972 they collected 842 pounds worth of lieu nan rocks for samples, pebbles, sand, and dust. and all of them but three were opened. they're opened. they're unsealing three of them this year in sell braug or commemoration of the anniversary and they were just thinking, you know, the technology might be there where we can learn even more about the lunar surface and its origins. >> what a giant achievement that was. >> yeah. a great peek behind the curtain.

i truly think that having a kid is one of the most narcissistic things a person can do. i do believe that. i don't think it's a conscious decision people have. i think it's this subconscious thing that's in the become of everyone's head, which is this idea, you know, i like me. i think there should be more of me in the world. >> i know that feeling. that was david cross with a clip from his brand-new standup special. the actor and comedian has been a fixture in tv and film for more than 25 years, and along
5:20 am
with longtime collaborator bob odenkirk, he's half the duo behind hbo's "mr. show," which earned him an emmy award. jamie wax sat down with cross to talk about his comedy career including its painful origins. jamie, good morning. >> that's right, anthony. he talked about growing up in atlanta and why comedy is so important to him and he opened up about something he rarely if ever has spoken about. it seems wherever david cross goes, people recognize him from somewhere. >> why would you say that? >> where that somewhere is depends on the person. what do people recognize you for mostly when they see you on the screen? >> it really depends. i don't have a 100% success says rate but i'd say i have an 80%, 85% suck saes rate at knowing very quickly, this is how you
5:21 am
can spot me. >> really. you can spot an "arrested development" person. >> yes. these things are all over the map and far apart. chipmunks, alvin is almost always younger or some parents go, i had to watch that 100 times? you're in luck. >> "mr. show" is sort of sprinkled among those things. >> reporter: "mr. show" with bob and david put the show on national stage. >> you're just jealous because i'm more of a woman than you'll ever be. >> reporter: with cross, odenkirk has been successful like "breaking bad" and "you'd better call saul." the solo triumphs also show them
5:22 am
related. >> you compare it to a marriage. >> yes. the same way naomi and i -- it's almost kind of fresh like the first moment we met is happening still, and i think david and i have the same thing. he's funnier than me. and i am funny, but he's funnier than me. >> reporter: whoever's funniest, the two have each created numerous characters together and on their own including what might be the role cross is most frequently identified with, tobias of the revered comedy "arrested development." >> i'm afraid i just blew myself. there's got to be a better way to say that. >> those were great days, so much fun. and, man, we would just crack each other up constantly. it was very much like a family. >> reporter: through all the acting, writing, and directing opportunities, cross stayed connected to the creative outlet
5:23 am
that got him noted. standup. >> so how's it going? what are you making now? >> minimum wage, yeah. lowest amount legally possible. >> it's an outlet that began for cross when he was searching for a voice as a kid in an atlanta suburb. >> take me back to you in georgia. you're a teenage kid. >> really, you want to go there? i don't want to go there. >> i do. i'd walk through atlanta with you rate now. >> i love atlanta, just the childhood was not great. >> cross's father abandoned the family when he was just a teenage eric something that still impacts him as he raises his daughter. >> how do you break that pattern and become a good father? >> i know what i and my sisters went through and my mom. i'll be real honest with you. it worried me. but what if there's that thing in me, what iit's a gene, what '
5:24 am
and a scene in something where my dad just sort of rationalized it and went, you know what? i honestly did think i wanted to have kids and be married, but now i know i don't, i don't, so anyway, i'm going to take off. what if there's that ability to rationalize that thought, what if i have that thing in me. and it really scared me, and i tried not to let on at all. i don't even know that i've talked about it except here. i still don't know if she's going to be 6 or 7 and i'm going to be like -- >> even so, cross acknowledges there were gifts he received from his father. >> my dad coincidentally opened
5:25 am
the doors that were coming. he turned me on to "abbott & costello" and marx brothers. he loved comedy. >> you know, it is a fascinating thing to be a part of. >> reporter: now cross is passing on that love of comedy to his daughter, taking her on tour around the world. >> i'm really looking forward to that big shift, you know, that happens, that big change where you finally start to love them. hurry up with that part, please. when is it going to be worth it in any way, shape, or form. >> reporter: and as a member of cross's chosen family, bob odenkirk says the relationship will last into the future. can you ever for sea a time when you don't perform with david cross? >> no. when we're dead. >> bob. you made it.
5:26 am
>> we'll hopefully be holding hands in an act together in the smithsonian comedy wing alternative hall. >> and cross is approaching what's next with the same lack of planning that's gotten him this far. >> if everything goes wrong, i can always do standup. >> why is standup so important? >> it's important to me especially as i do all of these other satellite things. they're bitting and pieces of me, but aren't really me. that's me. i've got a record for my daughter if anything happens to me. that's who your dad is. that's what your dad thought was important. >> his new comedy special, "oh, come on" is available on itunes, amazon, and other platforms. >> when you think about it, his father leaving gave him something. >> it's such an interesting dilemma in a father/son relationship. what do you take, what do you
5:27 am
hold onto? >> it goes on in every parent's mind. >> and it makes you a very good parent or bad. >> and when am i going to love them. >>. the new audio system celebrated with a royal resumption. your audience is devoted, my daughter is included among those. >> wow. >> i mean really devoted. why do you think that is? >> i think the show speaks to the dreamer. anyone who's ever had a drem of doing something that society piernlts would probably not approve of, our show helps young people navigate some tricky waters, and these kids on our show, on this competition rae alt show, have been through everything, so i think -- and also i think our show is about the tenacity of the human spirit. >> but you made drag queens acceptable. >> by who? who's accepting them? drag is naughty.
5:28 am
drag is not politically correct. >> it's not the oddity people once thought it was. >> yes. >> you know what i mean. >> absolutely. actually i don't want it to be acceptable. drag is dangerous. it's political. funny. it breaks all the rules, and that's what makes it exciting. >> but how did you think this would work though, paul, when it started? >> i'm didn't set out to make it work. i set out to follow my heart and do what i wanted. drag wasn't something i was compelled to do. it was something i was good at and i could maybe pay the rent with it, too, gayle, you know, and it turned out other people liked it. sure, why not. >> it's humorous and a lot of fun, but you also had to deal with violence. why was that important to include that. >> we wanted to give people the experience of it.
