CARL AZUZ: A bomb cyclone just
dropped on the US heartland.

What that is and what it
does is our first topic

this Thursday on "CNN 10".
I'm Carl Azuz.
Thank you for watching.
In the capital of Colorado,
the Mile High City of Denver,

Tuesday's high temperature was
nearly 60 degrees Fahrenheit.

24 hours later, it was
freezing and snowing.

This is the result of
bombogenesis, what's

also called a bomb cyclone.
It happens when there's a rapid
drop in atmospheric pressure

that causes a storm to become
very intense, very quickly.

How intense?
Central and northern US states
that lie in the Rocky Mountains

and east of them were
bracing for winds that

could reach 70 miles per hour.
That's nearly the speed of
a category one hurricane.

Blizzard and winter
storm warnings

were in effect for parts
of Colorado, Nebraska,

South Dakota, and Wyoming.
Heavy snow was likely.
The National Weather
Service in Boulder, Colorado

predicted whiteout conditions
when there's no visibility,

and power outages too.
It told the people in
the region to cancel

any travel plans Wednesday
afternoon and evening.

Some folks didn't have a choice.
More than 1,000 flights were
canceled yesterday, mostly at

Denver International Airport.
Denver Public Schools, like
several other districts

in Colorado, were closed.
Forecasters expected the
storm to move northeast

from the Colorado
Rocky Mountains,

with the snow tapering
off by Thursday afternoon.

But they're also on the
lookout for strong winds

and possible flooding
in southern states east

of the Rockies, where
thunderstorms were likely.

Next today, Boeing passenger
planes, models 737 Max 8 and 9

have been grounded
in the US and Canada.

The two nations announced their
decision yesterday afternoon.

At that point, they'd
been the only two

countries with a
substantial number

of these planes still flying.
US President Donald Trump
said new information

about the Ethiopian airlines
crash led to the Federal

Aviation Administration's
order to temporarily

ground 737 Max 8s and 9s.
We covered the plane and the
accident and yesterday's show.

You can find that at CNN10.com.
The Boeing Company says it
still has full confidence

in its airplane safety, but that
out of an abundance of caution,

it supports the decision
by the US government.

- 10 second trivia.
Which of these fast
food restaurant chains

was founded first?
Burger King, Chick fil-A,
McDonald's, or Wendy's?

The first Chick fil-A
chicken sandwich was served

at The Dwarf Grill in 1946.
CARL AZUZ: July 20th, 2019
will mark exactly 50 years

since astronauts Neil Armstrong
and Buzz Aldrin took mankind's

first steps on the moon.
The main mission
of Apollo 11 was

to get humans
safely to the moon,

and then get them safely home.
But Armstrong,
Aldrin, and Michael

Collins, the command
module pilot,

also brought back samples.
The Smithsonian
Institution says they

were the first ever retrieved
from another planetary body.

The subsequent missions
of Apollo 15, 16,

and 17 brought home more.
Some have been sitting untouched
in storage for decades.

And this week, NASA
announced they'd

be studied for the first time.
Nine teams will receive $8
million for their research.

NASA hopes to gain
new understanding

about the moon
from it and prepare

for more deep space missions.
Meantime, Americans
have the opportunity

to see the moon in a new light
from newly restored footage.

- It's one small step for man.
One giant leap for mankind.
- It was a moment
seen by millions.

Man's first steps on the moon.
The Apollo 11 mission remains
one of humanity's greatest

And yet, there is much
we never heard, never

saw, and never knew until now.
- Countdown for a Apollo
11 now five minutes,

52 seconds and counting.
- 50 years after
the historic launch,

a new documentary tells
the mission's story

with new accuracy, pieced
together with archival film

and recordings unearthed
by the filmmakers.

we started the project,

we kind of cast a
big net to try to get

all the available film footage.
What really-- the amazing part
was, several months and when

this discovery of the
collection of the 65 millimeter,

so was all large format.
And, you know, needless to say,
our jaws were on the ground

when we saw the first
images off the film scanner.

- Among the discovery were
thousands of hours of footage

that only existed on old reels.
Much of it uncatalogued, lacking
labels or transcriptions.

NASA, 50 years ago,

had shot this, developed
it, sent it out

to the different centers,
and then ultimately, it

ended up at the
National Archives

in College Park outside of DC.
And sitting in cold
storage all these years.

- Working with the team, the
film makers sifted through,

restored, and digitized
troves of material.

spent the time researching all

of that and then actually
made an entire timeline that

was nine days long
of the mission,

so there really is a nine
day version of this film.

We quickly realized that we had,
you know, something special,

and that we could do it
all with archival materials

and not rely on current talking
heads or other kind of movie

trickery to tell the story.
think that the all

archival approach really adds
to the immediacy of everything.

And that was really what we set
out to do, was just, you make,

you feel as if you
were actually there.

- Without narration,
recreation, or commentary,

the film uses only original
footage to condense the nine

day mission into 90 minutes.
It begins with
launch preparations

and ends with the
astronauts' return

to Earth, layering new
perspectives of all those

involved in the undertaking.
- I'd like to know
what you feel as

far as the responsibilities
of representing

mankind on this trip.
- That's relatively
difficult to answer.

It's a job that we collectively
said it was possible

and we could do.
And, of course, the nation
itself is backing us.

CARL AZUZ: We're not coming
back down to Earth just yet.

Since it's Throwback Thursday,
we're looking back on NASA's

Apollo 14 mission to the moon.
Well, astronauts Alan
Shepard and Edgar

Mitchell were there in 1971.
They explored the
moon's surface,

set up experiments, and climbed
to the edge of a crater.

But there's something
Alan Shepard did

afterward that golfers loved.
Though the ball he hit with
his six iron did not actually

travel for more than a mile.
ALAN SHEPARD: --six iron
on the bottom of it.

In my left hand I have
a little white pellet

that's familiar to millions
and millions of Americans.

I'll drop it down.
Unfortunately, the suit
is so stiff I can't

do this with two
hands, but I'm gonna

try an old sand trap shot here.
EDGAR MITCHELL: Your got more
dirt than ball that time.

more dirt than ball.

Here we go again.
- That looked like
a slice to me, Al.

ALAN SHEPARD: Here we go.
Straight as a die.
One more.
Miles and miles and miles.
CARL AZUZ: Glad we were
able to wedge that in.

It's definitely not par for
the course of a moon mission,

but it surely irons out
the question of whether you

can hit the links by moonlight.
It's a slice of levity
where there's less gravity,

and even if there's
no birdie to be seen,

it's not like you're
going to get a Mulligan.

I'm Carl Azuz,
teeing off with CNN.
