7:03 am
>> good morning. >> they're investigating what went wrong with a rocket. it exploded last night just after lift-off. no one was hurt but the blast destroyed nearly three tons of cargo and the launch site itself is out of commission. >> that accident is raising new questions over nasa's decision to scrap the space shuttle program. chip reid is on the city at wallops island along virginia's eastern shore. chip, good morning. >> reporter: well, good morning. this was the first catastrophic failure since nasa started using private companies to resupply the international space station. >> oh, god. oh, god! oh, god! oh, god! >> reporter: the describe lent explosion of an unmanned orbital sciences rocket lit up the sky tuesday over nasa's wallops flight facility in virginia. the 14-story rocket on a resupply mission to the
7:04 am
international space station broke apart only seconds after launch, showering debris across the virginia coastline. >> we don't really have any early indications of exactly what might have failed, and we need some time to take a look at that. >> reporter: this amateur video shot onboard an aircraft shows the fiery explosion some 3,000 feet above ground. the rocket was carrying a cargo ship loaded with more than 5,000 pounds of gear for six space station crew members including food, tools, and replacement parts along with students' research projects and 32 nano satellites. >> the crew has all the food, water, and other consumables necessary to support them well into next year. >> reporter: orbital sciences, a private company, holds a $1.9 billion contract with nasa for at least eight space station resupply flights through 2016.
7:05 am
tuesday source. nasa's shuttle program which was responsible for supplying the space station ended in 2011. tuesday night's spectacular failure is raising the question did nasa make the right decision by hiring private companies to go into space. >> i don't see this as a threat to this commercial model that nasa's implemented to keep the space station resupplied. the goal was to lower the cost. as part of that, the risk goes up a little bit. >> reporter: investigators are expected to be on the scene later this morning looking for answers. the loss is estimated at $200 million. the next flight is scheduled for april, but, of course, that could be delayed depending upon the results of the investigation. gayle? >> chip, we thank you. people in one hawaiian village prepare to watch their
7:06 am
homes burn this morning. dozens of houses and businesses are in its path and nothing can stop the destruction to come there. carter evans is in there where they're trying to get out. >> the lava is here going through pahoa. it could cross the road this morning about 100 yards from where i'm standing. in the meantime police are keeping everyone out. as the relentless lava flows, steadily steering its way toward pahoa, it swallowed up a shed on the edge of the village and is now threatening to do the same to dozens of homes. it's already burned through miles of thick brush moving at around 15 yards an hour, and there is nothing that can stop it. hundreds have already been evacuated making the decision to leave their homes behind and save themselves. >> they're obviously very sad because they love where they live, but i'm sure mixed
7:07 am
emotions will come out in the community as this continues to unfold because it is a life changing event. >> reporter: this lava flow began in june during the eruption of the kilauea volcano and is now closing one of the main roads. people have had weeks to prepare but find themselves overwhelmed. >> pretty heartbreaking, pretty sad, yeah. we don't know what's going to happen from now on. >> reporter: with temperatures nearing 2000 degrees, geologists warn of a dangerous mix from the intense heat and gases from the lava flow. >> that gas is mixing in an underground cavern and when it gets to a certain percentage of oxygen and methane ratio and with the heat from the lava flow, it ignites and it explodes. >> reporter: in an attempt to give comfort to some, they're allowing them to watch the lava destroy their homes. >> the initial shock is like you were losing a person, like a loved one in your family.
7:08 am
>> very emotional. our community is like a family. we don't want to lose that. >> reporter: and once the lava crosses the road here, it will cut right through this community burning homes along the way. if it makes it all the way down to the ocean, which is very possible, it will cut off all the roads into town. and, jeff, that's going to make it very tough for people to get in and out. >> carter, thank you very much. meanwhile several hundred people are out of their homes in cle clevela cleveland, ohio, due to a gas leak. there's fears of an explosion. that evacuation area is a mile wide. a team from texas is expected to arrive this morning to cap that well. president obama updates the nation this afternoon on the battle of ebola, but the administration has faced more tough questions this tuesday about the new cdc guidelines. the cbs news poll out this morning thinks most americans should do more.
7:09 am
80% say americans returning from africa should be quarantined. 27% think they shouldn't be allowed in this country at all. >> 39% of the government is prepared to manage the outbreak. 47% approve of the president's handle thus far. major garrett is at the white house this morning with plans for a major strategy. good morning. >> good morning. the white house says there's certain consent on how to deal with infaekted ebola cases. in reality what ee's striking i not consensus, but confusion. president obama defended less stringent federal ebola protocols for private citizens than for u.s. soldiers returning from the ebola hot zone. >> we've got to to make sure we continue to provide the support of health workers who are going overseas to deal with the
7:10 am
disease that has been raging. we don't expect to have similar rules for military as we do for civilians. >> reporter: all soldiers will first spend 21 days in virtual kwarp teen. that's already happening with troops returning to a base in italy. the joint chiefs of staff recommended this apply to all branchs of the military. defense secretary chuck hagel has yet to approve the plan. >> i think the secretary understands it. he wanted to take a very conservative approach. >> reporter: more conservative than cdc rules that recommend voluntary quarantine only for those known to have high risk exposure to ebola. >> you can understand how people might be confused about that. >> well, i can understand why people might suggestion there's a benefit to applying a military policy that works in a military context and suggesting that it might work in a civilian context.
7:11 am
i'm saying that's wrong. >> reporter: new jersey governor chris christie will stick much closer to the rules of the armies. >> whatever, get in line. i've been sued lots of times before. get in line. i'm happy to take it on. >> reporter: defense secretary chuck hagel will decide later this week whether all members will follow that of west africa. they'll make up the majority sent to the hot zone. if hagel were to reverse policy you could probably add controversy to already existing confusion. dpail? >> all right, garrett. thank you. >> it is interesting to hear governor christie say whatever. he sounds like a teenage kid. >> get in line. >> this is the thing about the governor. you always know where he stands. you never have to wonder that. there could be more legal battles with the nurse hickox.
7:12 am
the state is requiring 21 days quarantine after returning from africa. she spent nine days in a tent in new jersey with no signs of ebola. she's ready to break her quarantine two days after home. they call it a public safety issue. >> meanwhile amber vinson, the second dallas nurse to contract ebola is free of the disease. she spoke after her release from atlanta's emory hospital. >> i'm so grateful to be well. while this is a day for celebration and attitude, i ask that we not lose focus on the thousands of families who continue to labor under the burden of this disease in west africa. >> so at this point, dr. craig spencer is the only person in the u.s. to have ebola. he's in serious but stable condition at a new york city hospital. and washington is on heightened alert this morning on two fronts. the white house says hackers broke into its computer network. and concerns about terror are
7:13 am
leading to tighter security at federal buildings nationwide. juan zarate served under president george bush. good morning. >> good morning. >> why this heightened security? >> that's right, norah. there are no active plots to triger this warning but what you have is a general concerner the threat at large. you have the islamic state calling for attacks in the u.s., you have flows of foreign fighters in and out of sear yoo that are hard to attract, the canada attach and the hatchet attack in new york that we mentionnd and the broad concern you may have copycats or loan wolves that are inspired to attack, particularly federal buildings. that's why you have this announcement. >> there are a lot of federal buildings, close to 10,000 in d.c. what are they looking for? >> what authorities are going to be looking for are any intelligence threats or threads pointing to an active plot.
7:14 am
they're going to be looking at suspect individuals who are at risk and certainly they're going to be looking for suspect behavior. >> i want to ask you about this suspicious activity at the white house yesterday. i know it's an unclassified network, but how concerned are officials? >> i think, jeff, officials are concerned in general not because of the particulars of this attack. it doesn't appear to be that disrupp tish and as you said this is an intrusion on an unclassified system. in that sense you've seen an aggressive group of attacks coming out of russia in particular. especially in recent weeks. the attack on the jpmorgan accounts coming out of russia and this attacks seem to have come out of moscow as well. government officials fear it may
7:15 am
disrupt u.s. systems. >> thank you. pope francis is bridging the gap between church and science this morning. the leader of the catholic church faces mixed reaction for controversial comments on evolution. allen pizzey is in rome where the pope defended the big bang theory. allen, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. pope francis siding with science over dogma. in a direct contradiction in the beliefs of creationists, francis says when we read about creation of genesis, the first part of the bible, we think of god as a magician with a magic wand and that is not so. and he argued the big bang theory. the big bang does not contradict the creative intervention of god, the pope said. on the contrary it requires it. five centuries ago galileo could
7:16 am
have used pope francis. how times change. pope pious xii called it a development of humans and pope john went further and suggested it was more than a high pocket sis and consuming fact. even pope benedict xvi said it did not conflict with faith, although, he said, it left many questions unanswered. it isn't revolutionary in the view of chester gillis at georgetown university. >> science is designed to tell us how science works. religion tells us why. why is there a universe. why is there something rather than nothing and what is the ultimate destination of that. >> reporter: given his job description pope francis
7:17 am
probably has the answer for it but interestingly, he's not expecting you to take his word for it. the tell con giant is being sued by the federal government for putting limits on its unlimited data plans. our senior correspondent anthony mason is here. anthony, what is the ftc saying here? >> this involved 3.5 million customers. they say, look, when they offered an unlimited plan but when they used too much data they started throttling their data stream down in some such cases they couldn't get on the internet. the fcc says if you're offering an unlimited plan, it has to be unlimited and they failed to adequately disclose to their customers that they're doing it. they say everyone is doing it.
7:18 am
to help throttle it down. >> they say these were the most glut news customers attacking the web and this helps other customers out. this goes back to when at&t stopped offering the unlimited plan because they discovered there were customers using so much data. the fcc says if you're calling it unlimited, it kind of has to be unlimited. >> what are they hoping at&t does. >> a, they want better disclosure on this but more importantly they want to get millions of dollars in restitution for these 3.5 million customers which at&t argues is a small slish of their customer base sun less you can't get on. >> yes. the world series will be decided tonight in kansas city. >> andy capp to right center. blanco will not get there. 7-0. >> the royals had to win game six last night and they scored seven runs in the second inning.

they shut out san francisco, 10-0. kansas city is trying to win its first world series in 29 years. the home team has won nine games -- nine straight game sevens since the 1980s. >> there is such a thing as momentum. it does look like kansas city. >> i cannot wait for it. >> all right. it's 7:19. ahead on "cbs this morning" --

just how far along new york police are in planning to respond to security risk of drones. jeff pegues shows us how they're setting their sights on the skies. good morning. >> good morning. we learn this morning that the nypd is looking for ways to actively stop drone. they've been increasingly concerned about a potential air attack by a drone armed with a deadly weapon. >> we look at it as something that could be a terrorist tool. >> this deputy chief is publicly announcing for the first time why they're paying close attention to mesh's fascination with drones and the potential that they could deliver a terror attack. >> chemical weapons? >> we're thinking it is. >> guns? >> guns, definitely. we've seen that. we've seen some paint ball video where the drone was flying at different targets along the
7:34 am
route and very accurately hitting the targets with the paintball. >> but the nypd sees the drone carrying explosives as a number one threat and this video was a wakeup call. this drove was flying during her speech. it flew right in front of her. she was smiling but law enforcement across the globe was not. >> reporter: what sit about that video that concerns you the most? >> if you think about what could happen there, that drone hit its target right on the mark and could have take an chance on taking people out. >> reporter: his concern has only been heightened by the dramatic increase in drones in new york city, over 40 in the last year. >> definitely a drone. he's going up the streets now alongside the buildings. >> reporter: and in some cases unmanned aircraft seasons or drones are either intentionally or unintentionally being flown
7:35 am
in the airspace of nypd helicopters. we were invited to fly with members of the nypd aviation unit. they took us to a location in brooklyn where just this last summer one of their helicopters nearly collided with a drone. they sate was about 800 feet off the ground. officers maudsley and hernandez. >> you see this drone come up to our altitude. >> reporter: but you don't know what the drone is capel of. >> you don't know what the intentions are, you know, hostile, recreational. there's a lot of different ways you can go with that. >> reporter: quite literally the sky is the limit for people intent on doing harm. at least that's how the police see it. dep pete director jimmy coan. >> they think they're a toy or model. they're not.
7:36 am
they're another aircraft sflieing in the air system and they create a safety hazard. >> reporter: they would like to create technology that could take control of the drone and scan the skies during major events. >> we have to come up with technology to put a system at yankee stadium or the airfield and monitor the field to see if there's something that shouldn't be there. >> reporter: that's on the horizon. for now they're monitoring threats. we're told this video is the most vivid example of what drones can do. while it looks like it's real it's actually a viral marketing campaign for a video campaign but as far as the nypd is concerned, this isn't a game. >> we look at people that have jerry rigged these drones to carry guns, different types of skploess if they wanted to. you know, there's so many possibilities that we're very worried about. >> the nypd is consulting with
7:37 am
the military and has members of its counterterrorism, bomb squad, and emergency services working on a plan to counter weaponized drones. >> jeff, how are they preparing for a marathon? it's this weekend. >> it is this sunday. you know, the protocol after the boston bombing was looked down, looked for unintended back packs or bags, anything like that. now they're instructing their officers not only to look down but look up as well. >> it's really interesting. thank you so much. >> the technology is amazing what's going on behind the scenes. thank you, jeff. hate is a strong word, we know that but that's what spirit airlines experienced this past summer. it's a statement of hate is what they're calling it. it took less than three days to get 30,000 responses. our travel editor peter greenberg is here. peter, good morning. most companies stay away from the words. they don't want you to hate
7:38 am
them. but they're -- >> it's branding opportunity. they say let's embrace the notion of how much do you actually hate us and that's why they did the survey. >> what did they find out? >> guess who's hated the most? what a surprise. spirit. it was number one. with spirit you have people hating their fees, they're hating their seats, they're hating the delays, and they were quite vocal about this in terms of their responses. >> why is delta up there so high? >> interestingly enough, they just didn't limit their responses to spirit. so the airlines that got nabd, spirit, delta, united, american, and interestingly enough southwest is also on that list. >> but go back to the seating for a second. >> yeah. >> i find the seats really, really tough. >> interestingly enough, seats was number one in terms of hate, you know why? at spirit the seats don't recline anyway. so the people who fly spirit already know that one.
7:39 am
>> what do they hate the most about air travel? >> what they hate the mostable air travel is the fees. they hate it most, especially with spirit. they're going to charge you for everything short of breathing and that's what people -- >> you know why it's hard with the fies? it's hard to pay for something you used the get for free. that's hard to wrap your brain around, but on the other hand they're saying fees saved the airlines. >> absolutely saving the airlines. that's their biggest profit. they're generating billions of dollars in what they call ancillariry fees. >> do you get anything in exchange? >> here's the funny part. for anyone who responded they got 8,000 frequent flyer points on spirit. another reason they hate them, now they have to try to redeem them. all right. it's not a joke to the women who feel like victims. >> hey, what's up, girl. how you doing. >> hey, baby. >> hey, beautiful.

surprised filmmakers. >> how are you doing today? i guess not good. >> reporter: it's known as cat calling. some men consider it a complement. >> what's up girl? how you doin? >> reporter: but for shoshana roberts seen in this video, there was nothing friendly or complementary about it. she calls it harassment. a fellow team member filmed it as she walked the streets of new york city. in a ten-hour period she received 108 unsolicited remarks. one man's polite greeting quickly turned uncomfortable as he walks alongside her for more than five minutes. the video was posted on youtube, has gone viral, and has sparked varied opinions. one man commenting guys usually have to do the work. that's just how it is.
7:46 am
another viewer asked, do you want your own daughter to walk down the streets with men asking her how are you doing, beautiful? >> i'll give you my number. would you call me? >> reporter: but roberts stands by the video saying if you don't put up with harassment at school, home, or work, why do we put up with it on the street. the creator of the film said he came up with the idea after his own girlfriend was harassed. his film called holla backesty mates that all women face it at some point in their life. >> it happens all the time to me. i'm amazing people have the brazenness to do what they do. >> they say, hey, girl, you look good. i turn around and say thank you. it would be different if they turn you around and throw you on the ground and boink your brains

8:03 am
where i'm standing. let me give you an idea of what this lava flow looked like last night as it was burned through yards. inching along at about 15 miles an hour. it's burned through miles of thick brus. it burned down one structure yesterday as it approached this community. now dozens of homes are threatened and there is absolutely nothing that can stop it. hundreds of people have already evacuated. what is your biggest concern with this lava flow? >> that we're going to be totally cut off from the rest of the island. if we don't get run over and burned by the lava we get cut off and as it makes its way toward the ocean, we loose our access roads here. >> reporter: which community is preparing for the possibility it will be split in two by this lava flow. you have to understand it's not something you can rebuild over right away. once it stops flowing, it can remain hot for months, even

hi higher than they have this week. the dow ended yesterday back above 17,000. a new survey from wall street powerhouse blackrock finds more than half of american investors are positive about their financial future, but the high cost of living, state of the economy, and health care remain a big concern. they polled 27,000 people for their global survey. rob joins us now. good morning. >> good morning. >> what was one of the most significant finding? >> well, it's really interestings to interesting to go out and find out what investors are thinking and the public is thinking. what is interesting is people have not saved enough for retirement and they're really quite worried about that. what we found out is those trying to do something are doing
8:06 am
the wrong thing. it was a fascinated survey for us. we found that most people, most households are sitting in cash and you report on interest rates all the time. we know that they're very low and cash is just the wrong thing to be doing when you're planning for retirement. >> what about cash is king? >> retiring people should be looking to invest today because you can't invest in the future for the future. >> i love that. that's your slogan. >> for us we think it's about convincing the investors. it's not timing the market. it's time in the market. and today we have a very serious situation in this country where people are not saving enough and we were able to get information broken down by age groups. what's fasting -- >> millennials are most confident. 66% believe it will be bright versus 45% of baby boomers.
8:07 am
foinld this hard to believe. i don't know any millennials, honestly, who are hopeful about their financial future. they're strapped. >> the average age is 25 to 34. >> they're not making a lot of money. they're strapped. housing costs -- they don't feel like they're getting ahead. >> there's really two primary reasons. one, they didn't have a lot of assets when they went through the financial crisis. they're younger. and they have a lot more time to worry about these issues. whereas there's a squeeze between the baby boomers and generation x because they had the expenses, they did lose some money in the financial crisis, and they're closer to retirement. now, the one thing that you have to think about is that people are living longer. you know, in the 1950s people lived till 68. now today you're going to live till 80. when did living longer become a problem? so just think about this. you used to spend about 14 years of retirement. today you're going to spend 20
8:08 am
to 25 years in retirement. so you'd better think about saving today for the future. and that's what the message is. and it was born out by this survey. >> there's still this big split, though, because you talk about how many people are uncomfortable not ready for retirement. the market is rolling. >> well, let's talk about the market. people are not invested in the market. so only 18% of households are actually invested in the market. and they're scared because they see these gyrations. we want to send the message that that is just noise. you have to invest for the long term. the short termism is not going to help you to retire. and cash is the worst thing, especially when you're not getting paid. >> and there's a difference between women and women. >> it's really also interesting in this sur ray between women and men. women are saving less than men, and this is a big problem. why is that? because women are closer to the household of finances, they understand that expenses are
8:09 am
high, and they'd rather spend the money on their children today than save for their own retirement. >> that's not hard to argue with. >> number one crisis in america. >> i know, i know. rob, thank you. >> if you don't save, by the way, your parents are moving back in with you at some point, so that should cause you to save as well. >> thank you, rob. don't give my mom ideas. love you, mom. ahead on "cbs this morning," does milk really build

i know i should drink milk because it will help me grow up big and strong. milk's got stuff that's good for my bones and stuff that's good for my muscles. >> that's right. for decades ads told us milk does the body good. but evidence shows it may be time to put down the glass. i think about this. high milk consumption may be linked were more bone fractures and a higher death rate. what? dr. holly phillips is here. this goes against everything we eens been told so i say whatcha talking about, willis.
8:16 am
>> in large amounts milk may do more harm than good. research in sweden looked at people over 20 years and they found that for women who had more than three glasses of milk a day, they had a higher risk of fractures, particularly dangerous hip fractures and also a higher risk of death from any cause as compared to women who had less than one cup a day. now, this was not a cause-and-effect study. they just established a link. but that link is important because right now they have had three cups a day. >> what's the result behind this? is it vitamin d, too much calcium that backfires? what is it? >> the thee that the research puts forward is that as our bodies process the lactose in milk, it can create compounds of inflammation within our blood vessels and something called ox dayive stress in ourselves. what we know about both of those things is they cause illness, heart disease, stroke, and they're bad for our bones. >> we talked to the national dairy council. they say there's no cause and
8:17 am
effect benefits here. they say dairy is one factor in a healthy lifestyle. this study talks about drinking too much, high, high amounts, which you say is bad. >> i think it's too early -- to their point it's too early to discount how nutritious milk can be but i think this is an important study not just what it says about milk bus it represents the future of the science of nutrition. it's not just about vitamins. it's about how our body metabolizes. >> is almond milk okay? >> it is. >> i think skim mill success one of the best things, even better than a sports drink that has a lot of sugar in it. that's my opinion. >> all right, dr. o'donnell. you've got it. >> weighing in on it. >> thanks, holly. it is illegal but how can an

>> you were 13 at the time. >> yes. >> you sad for it for a while. >> i didn't know what to do. there was a hole of being fatherless but i wanted to find that other half of me. i thought, i'm going to do this. i didn't know how and the universe sometimes takes care of things. i happened to walk by a television again two years later only this time the news anchor said, he won. i could dial and write the address down. i did. i sat down with my best friend dana and wrote a letter to him. >> listen. this is part of the letter. i think you'd be proud of how i turned out. if you disregard this letter, i assure you it will not end here. i would think if i were the governor i would be turned off by that i think that was my 17-year-old -- maybe 15 wants to get his attention. i wouldn't write it that way. i wanted to get his attention. i wanted him to write back.
8:46 am
that didn't happen. >> he wanted none of this. >> he sat on this. this is a time when he and my mom had been through their own journey, he had given her money, settled out of court and don't call me. there was no dna. i got the secret meeting. i called him and we had a secret meeting. we got the dna test and really connected and that's what drove me to say things are going to be okay. >> it's great story. you were met at the airport, taken to a secret location and it's a very stilted kind of conversation, but you still felt something from him even though he wasn't giving you anything at that point. >> yes. i felt that connection and that connection i was hoping for. sig monday freud says there's no greater need than the protection of a father. that's what i needed. i thought if i can just make him see me he can accept me. >> you came from a single mother and now your dad is the governor. he's very wealthy. would you have been so
8:47 am
persistent if he wasn't that? and i worried about your mother during this time. >> i gave my mom a lot of credit. there she is whelp i'm little, reading books to me. she did it all on her own. she was a business owner. i think it's a valid question. there are people who say he's a man of means and should give back child support. what he said after the news came out -- he needed the public story to be the birth announcement, he said i want you to come live with me and get to know you. anything else -- i'll help you pay for college but anything else i'll treat you like my children. for me that was valid. i think if he was a school teacher or anything else, that need to know your identity outweighs who that person is. >> did you have to forgive him? >> i did. and that was a choice, i think, why i got the happy ending which is why i wrote the book. forgiveness -- i don't think it's condoning what happens.
8:48 am
forgiveness is letting it go. when he said come live with me, i want to get to know you. i thought, i'm not going to beat you up for the next 18 years for the last 18 years. >> chocolate soda, chocolate ice cream. >> that's why he can walk me down the aisle and be there. >> walk me down the aisle to my former tv husband, from gayle's old tv station. you've got all these fractured relationships, and for me it was a decision i had to make. if you want that relationship with a parent and it's going to be transformational for you, then i think you have to take a leap of faith and you've got to forgive. you can't spend the time worrying. >> good job, kara sunday lunn. >> kara sunday lunn, what a wonderful message. >> thank you so much. >> and your brother is here. >> my brother's in the green
8:49 am
room. >> stewart. >> full circle with the brother. >> finding dad comes out in paper bakr on november 11th. an amazing new view of the future where history will never be forgotten. that is next on "cbs this morning."
