the orator, the public servant, the-"dana: "and your mother got stuff done."pelosi: "well, my brother calls it her moccasin brigade. all of these women who would be part of getting the message out, being at events. there are two things about what i bring with me from my family in this regard. one is to know how to count. that's very important. count your votes to win the election. count your votes to win a vote on the floor. the other is listen to the constituents."the d'alesandro home was at the center of this italian community.a vivid childhood memory: helping new immigrants who knew where her father - the mayor - and his family lived, and would regularly knock on their door - asking for help.pelosi: "since i was a little girl, i knew how to tell somebody how to get a bed in city hospital, how to try to get housing in the projects, because that's right here next to us, because i heard my mother say it so many she wanted to go to law school. instead, like many in her generation, she got pelosi: "when i got married and i had a baby, and then another baby, five and six years. people are always saying, 'oh. she knew when she was a ntlied to run fo never thought of that ever, until i did."the pelosis moved

explain how?"nancy: "well, you listen. you build consensus." that's exactly what she did to get enough votes for speaker again... made compromises with democratic doubters looking for someone new. not her."none of us is indispensable, but some of us are just better at our jobs than others. and i have a following in the country. apart from anybody who has run for president."dana bash/ cnn chief political correspondent: "for most women frankly, myself included, it is hard to say those words, 'i am uniquely qualified. i deserve this. i earned this. i can do this better than anyone else,' but you can say that."nancy: "you know why i do it, dana? i do it, because i want women to see that you do not get pushed around. you don't run away from the fight."

6:49 pm
successfully landed a lunar rover on the far side of the moon. and these are the first two close up images of the ground the rover sent back. this is the first time any country will explore the far side of the moon on the ground. china's six wheeled rover faces a long to-do listlike observing whether plants will grow in the low gravity and exploring whether water or other resources lie at the moon's poles. it will also be able to listen more clearly to the sounds of deep spacebecause here there is no electromagnetic interference from earth. the far side of the moon is the hemisphere that never faces the earth. it's been mapped extensively, but never visited, mainly because it's not possible to communicate directly to earth from there. china launched a relay satellite to solve that issue.matt rivers, cnn international correspondent: "it's a big step forward for china. because historically its space program has always lagged behind the us and russia but now it's become a huge point of national pride. displays like this one here at the national museum help inspire a sense of wonder and optimism amongst ordinary chinese people that when it comes to space, anything is now possible. kind of like the us was back in the 60's and

70's."china has already launched two space stations and by 2022 hopes to launch another potentially capable of replacing the aging international space station. a probe to mars is set for launch in 2020. and in 2015, cnn got exclusive access to training facilities used by chinese astronauts, where we saw firsthand how china is planning to send more people into space. matt rivers, cnn international correspondent: "it's because of all that that some wonder whether it will be china, and not the united states, that will dominate space exploration in the near future."the us congress bars nasa from working with china due to national security concerns, and with the trump administration's plan to create amilitary space force, the stage is set for competition in both civilian and military arenas. trump has also directed nasa to return astronauts to the moonand they might not be alone. between china's chang-e's missions, and its manned flight programsmany experts predict beijijng is gearing up to send its own astronauts to plant a chinese flag on the moon as soon as possible. matt
