  • CARL AZUZ, CNN ANCHOR: Love that new show open. It is Tuesday, my name is Carl Azuz, this is CNN STUDENT NEWS.

  • We are bringing you stories from around the world, and today we`re going to take you underground and out into space.

  • But we`re starting in the Philippines, with the impact of a powerful storm there.

  • You can see some of the flooding and damage here.

  • It`s all the result of Typhoon Utor.

  • In the Philippines, it is also called La Bouillo (ph).

  • Typhoons are the same kinds of storms as hurricanes.

  • They are called different things based on where they happen,

  • and this one, Utor, is the strongest typhoon that`s happened anywhere in the world so far this year.

  • Winds up to 124 miles per hour.

  • At least one person killed. 20 more were missing yesterday.

  • More than 600 homes were damaged in the area where it made landfall.

  • The Philippines is made up of more than 7,000 islands, and the country is hit by an average of 20 typhoons every year.

  • In the U.S., some states are dealing with severe weather as well.

  • In Colorado, heavy rains led to flash flooding.

  • Take a look at this video.

  • These cars washed away like toys.

  • In some parts of the state, the floodwaters were up to 10 feet deep and moving at up to 30 miles per hour.

  • You can see the water rushing through the cars that are stuck in it.

  • These vehicles were in a parking garage that flooded.

  • You can see how high the water rose based on how little of the cars are still visible.

  • Once the floodwaters started to recede, this is the kind of damage they left behind.

  • At least one person was killed.

  • Emergency crews were searching for anyone who was missing, and residents were just starting to clean up and recover.

  • That could take some time.

  • UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: It`s time for the shoutout.

  • Which of these states has the most sinkholes?

  • If you think you know it, then shout it out.

  • Is it Alaska, California, Florida, or Minnesota?

  • You got three seconds. Go.

  • Because of its terrain, you are more likely to find a sinkhole in Florida than these other states.

  • That`s your answer and that`s your shoutout.

  • AZUZ: Florida`s terrain is ideal for sinkholes.

  • They can form when the rock under the land`s surface is dissolved by ground water.

  • The land above can then fall in the hole, taking along whatever was on it.

  • This was on it. In Clermont, Florida, Sunday night, a vacation resort near Disneyworld, where people heard popping, cracking,

  • then saw windows blow out as part of the building crumbled into the ground.

  • More than 30 people were evacuated in time.

  • There were no injuries, which is kind of amazing when you consider that the crater that swallowed this place was 60 feet wide and 15 feet deep.

  • Just a reminder of how dangerous sinkholes are.

  • And to show you what`s actually under them, CNN`s David Mattingly dove in and took a swim.

  • DAVID MATTINGLY, CNN CORRESPONDENT: Perhaps most striking to me how appearances of the sinkhole are so misleading.

  • A single beam of sunlight reveals the cavern is even bigger below the waterline,

  • with tunnels and passageways carved deep into the darkness.

  • But most disturbing could be the view from up top.

  • The round opening is deceptively small.

  • Little indication of the cavern that`s just beneath my feet.

  • Until a hole like this opens up, there`s really no warning, is there?

  • UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Correct. It is that random and that sudden.

  • And it can happen obviously overnight or at any time.

  • MATTINGLY: It can, and it does.

  • With thousands of sinkholes opening up in Florida every year.

  • AZUZ: This next story started on February 26, 2012.

  • That night, 28- year-old George Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch captain, shot and killed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.

  • Zimmerman said he shot Martin in self-defense,

  • and he was not arrested the night of the shooting because police said there wasn`t evidence to disprove his story.

  • Some people were angered by that decision. They held rallies in cities across the country.

  • And in April of 2012, Zimmerman was charged with second-degree murder, and he turned himself in.

  • All week long, we`re looking at some of the stories that happened this summer.

  • Today, the George Zimmerman trial.

  • UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: State of Florida versus George Zimmerman.

  • Verdict, we the jury find George Zimmerman not guilty.

  • UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: That was how the trial ended on July 13th.

  • It started more than a year after George Zimmerman was charged with second- degree murder.

  • This was a criminal case, which means Zimmerman being prosecuted by the state of Florida,

  • and his fate was in the hands of the six people on the jury.

  • The trial lasted 14 days;

  • 56 witnesses testified, but not George Zimmerman.

  • The defendant chose not to take the stand.

  • The prosecutors argued that Zimmerman intentionally committed an act that caused Trayvon Martin`s death.

  • BERNIE DE LA RIONDA, PROSECUTOR: He profiled a 17-year-old boy that had Skittles.

  • That`s the crime he committed that evening.

  • UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: The defense argued that Zimmerman feared for his life, and shot Martin in self-defense.

  • MARK O`MARA, DEFENSE ATTORNEY: That is cement.

  • That is the sidewalk.

  • And that is not an unarmed teenager with nothing but Skittles, trying to get home.

  • UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: The jury had three options - find Zimmerman guilty of second-degree murder,

  • find him guilty of manslaughter - a lesser charge - or find him not guilty.

  • After 16.5 hours of deliberation, they returned the verdict of not guilty.

  • Across the country, some people responded in anger.

  • CROWD (chanting): No justice, no peace.

  • UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Others said the judicial system did its job.

  • JIMMY CARTER, FORMER U.S. PRESIDENT: I think the jury made the right decision based on the evidence presented.

  • Because the prosecution inadvertently set the standard so high that the jury had to be convinced that it was a deliberate act by Zimmerman,

  • that he was not at all defending himself and so forth. It`s not a moral question, it was a legal question.

  • UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: And President Obama urged Americans to stay calm and reflect,

  • saying, quote, "we should ask ourselves if we`re doing all we can to widen the circle of compassion and understanding in our own communities."

  • If a civil case or a civil rights lawsuit are brought against George Zimmerman,

  • he could still be held accountable for Trayvon Martin`s death,

  • but not in the criminal trial, which reached its conclusion this summer.

  • UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Is this legit?

  • Hercules, Perseus, Mensa are all names of constellations.

  • It`s true. Those are three of the 88 official constellations, patterns of stars in the sky.

  • AZUZ: Every year, Perseus gets a space shower - well, kind of.

  • It`s actually a meteor shower, and it`s not near the constellation.

  • It`s called the Perseid meteor shower because it happens in the same part of the sky as the Perseus constellation.

  • This meteor shower happens when the earth`s orbit passes near the path of a comet called Swift-Tuttle.

  • That usually happens in July or August.

  • We get close to the path every year, but the actual comet only approaches our orbit every 130 years.

  • Here are a few looks at the Perseid meteor shower, some from past years, one from this year, and a view from space.

  • Those streaks of light are meteors hitting the earth`s atmosphere, something that happens more often than you might think.

  • AZUZ: Thousands of natural space objects come close to earth every day.

  • Some you need a telescope to see. Others you can spot with your eyes.

  • Then, there are those you can just pick up after they hit the ground.

  • Meteors, sometimes called shooting stars, are the streaks of light you see when these objects enter earth`s atmosphere.

  • The light is caused by friction between the object - called a meteoroid - and the air.

  • Now, meteors are best seen at night, but they can happen during any part of the day, like this one that caused a sonic boom over Russia in February of 2013.

  • Some meteors can be caused by fragments of comets, balls of ice that form way out in space.

  • They develop really long tails as they come close to the sun.

  • Now, if that tail passes through earth`s atmosphere, you get a meteor shower,

  • lots of streaks of light that could last several days.

  • Meteors caused by comets melt before they reach the ground.

  • Meteors can also be pieces of asteroids, balls of rock that usually orbit between Mars and Jupiter.

  • But some asteroids orbit closer to earth, close enough to burn up in the atmosphere, forming meteors.

  • If a rocky meteor is not completely incinerated, it could strike the ground, and then it`s called a meteorite.

  • This one landed in what`s now Argentina about 4,000 years ago.

  • Large ones like that are pretty rare, but NASA says about 100 tons of space stuff slams into earth`s atmosphere every day.

  • AZUZ: All right, getting shown up in a YouTube video does not sound like fun,

  • but the kid in this YouTube video is at least getting shown up by the best.

  • That`s Michael Jordan at his Michael Jordan flight school camp, and it looks like his airness can still throw down.

  • This might not be an emphatic slam, but remember, Jordan turned 50 this year, a half-century of hops.

  • So how did the crowd respond?

  • Hooping and hollering. You know, just generally having a ball.

  • No complaints, besides who`s going to slam Michael Jordan?

  • Whether or not you think those puns are a foul, we`ll rebound and try some more tomorrow.

  • I`m Carl Azuz.
