the roadblock ♪ ♪ we blended in with the crowd ♪ ♪ i know that that ain't allowed ♪ welcome to "newsroom." i'm robyn curnow. as demand for the vaccine in the u.s. drops, johnson & johnson with a new warning. joe biden does what no u.s. president has done before, calling the mass killings of armenians a century ago a genocide. i speak to the former u.s. ambassador to turkey about the potential fallout. debris from a sunken submarine in indonesia is recovered.
10:01 pm
great to have you along this hour. we begin with signs that the coronavirus vaccine supply in the u.s. may soon outstrip demand. more than 225 million doses have been administered across the country, but daily vaccination rates are starting to taper off. now this comes as the government cleared the johnson & johnson vaccine to resume after a brief pause over reports of a rare blood clot. now that's putting even more doses back in the supply chain. so the drop in vaccinations is concerning health officials. as you can see here, the u.s. is far from reaching herd community. i want to go straight to polo sandoval, looking at what might be behind this drop. >> reporter: as johnson & johnson's covid-19 vaccine is cleared to go into arms again, a slight but ongoing drop in overall shots being administered a day. that average number, according to the cdc, dipped below 3
10:02 pm
million this week. the biden administration attributing it to vaccine hesitancy. it's a trend that the university of washington's institute for health metrics and evaluation has been closely watching, even before j&j's pause. >> facebook runs a survey every day. and we look at that data on a daily basis. and that's shown that vaccine confidence in the u.s. has been slowly but steadily going down since february. you know, not huge amounts. like a percentage point a week. but that starts to add up. >> reporter: some of that hesitancy being felt more among republicans. a monmouth poll showed 43% of gop voters said they will likely never get a covid vaccine, compared to 5% of democrats. the head of the cdc said friday the government must perform "extraordinary outreach" when it comes to educating clinicians and patients. >> i am getting the injection now. >> reporter: baltimore's former health commissioner dr. win received a j&j dose before the pause. if given the option she encourages certain women avoid
10:03 pm
it given the fresh findings about extreme ly extremely rare clots. >> since there are two other vaccines that don't carry this small risk, i don't think i would have chosen to get the johnson & johnson vaccine knowing that risk. i wish the cdc and fda had gone further in their discussions to explicitly put a warning for women under the age of 50 to say, if it is available to you, consider choosing one of the other vaccines that do not carry this particular risk. >> reporter: the consensus remains the same among experts, all covid vaccines authorized for us in the u.s. remain safe and effective if you look at the tradeoff here, this is still far better, it's far better to choose to take the johnson & johnson vaccine than to go unvaccinated, given what we know about the risks of covid. >> reporter: a local canadian pharmacy in toronto celebrated administering its 1000th
10:04 pm
vaccination this week, as here in the u.s. efforts on a much larger scale continue amid vaccine hesitancy. in new york state, about 31% of the population already considered fully vaccinated. in an effort to try to keep increasing that number are multiple locations, vaccination sites open up, including in new york city where the american natural history museum serving as a mass vaccination site, even offering free admission as incentive. >> cnn medical analyst dr. rodriguez, thanks for joining us. i do want to get your reaction to this johnson & johnson announcement. >> i think that it was very wise to stop and try to look at what's going on, if there was any sort of line or correlation between certain illness or certain genders. i agree that women, especially women under 50, need to be a
10:05 pm
little bit careful. i think that if you're on birth control, even though it hasn't been proven, that might be a risk factor. however, please keep in mind that this is 1 in 1 million, literally, 1 in 1 million of the people that get the johnson & johnson vaccine that get blood clots. 1 of 100 americans are going to die from car accidents. 1 in 15,000 are going to get hit by lightning. this is very rare. but it's something that does need to be taken into consideration. i'm glad it's back on the market. >> i'm sure you're not the only one. to go back to this issue, did this pause then create more vaccine trust? or more vaccine hesitancy, do you think? >> i'm pretty sure that it created more vaccine hesitancy. i think that there are a group of people that are going to take the vaccine no matter what. i think there are also another group of people that are going to look for almost any excuse not to take it. i think it did somehow solidify in those people's minds the fact that they should not take the
10:06 pm
vaccine. what we have to keep in mind is that people are seeing what i keep saying, how the sausage of science is being made. this would have happened behind the scenes, people wouldn't have gotten alerted, they would have eventually known the truth about what is causing these clots when there is more information. >> there's talk about clots, because you know, it's rare clotting, as you say, 1 in 1 million. but covid appears to increase your risk of blood clots, of strokes. why is that? >> well, they believe that the reason that covid, the sars-cov-2 virus, can cause clotting, is because it causes inflammation throughout your body. a vein or artery, blood has to flow through. as it gets smaller due to inflammation, that blood starts to back up and cause clotting. this is a completely different mechanism than what they believe is caused by the vaccine.
10:07 pm
in that case, the platelets, which is something that helps clot blood, they start going down because they form clumps. it's two different complete mechanisms. but they both ironically seem to increase clotting. >> this johnson & johnson pause also didn't just impact the pipeline supply here in the u.s., but also a study to vaccinate health care workers in south africa, for example, which can now also go back online, so this is not just about the u.s. market, is it? >> no. >> has huge implications for countries like south africa where most of the population is not vaccinated, and elsewhere in the world. >> that's absolutely right. unfortunately, the johnson & johnson vaccine is not being administered in the places where it is needed the most. this is one vaccine that has a wide possibility of helping people. because it is just one shot. one and done. so yes, this is a wide-ranging effect. it has been stopped in certain
10:08 pm
countries in europe in south africa i heard that it was just approved to be started again, so it has worldwide implications. >> i also want to talk about what's happening in india. i know we're going to have this conversation after you, with another guest. but the double mutant variant in india. a combination, apparently, of the californian and south african variants. not exactly, but at least the same profile. this is something that needs to be looked at and watched. what are you seeing early on as people worry about what's playing out in india? >> well, first and foremost, what's happening in india is just heartbreaking. the images are incredible. so viruses mutate every day. each virus has probably dolss of mutations. some are important, some are not. nobody really knows what the 617 mutant, which is the india mutant, whether it really is creating the sort of surge in india. in some of the states in india, it's approximately two-thirds of
10:09 pm
the covids that are being found there. so what people need to remember is that every person that gets infected will more than likely create some sort of mutation through the replication process. mutations are created by people getting infected. and that is why vaccination is so important. that is why health measures like hand washing and simple masks are so important. but yes, there needs to be a lot more observation and research on this quote-unquote india variant to see if it's what's causing the surge there, and in other countries in the world. >> okay. always good to speak to you. cnn medical analyst dr. rodriguez, thank you for your expertise. as we were just saying there with the doctor, india has shattered the global daily case record for a fourth consecutive day. officials just reported more than 349,000 new infections just on sunday. this brings the country's total cases to more than 16.9 million since the pandemic began. oxygen is in short supply along
10:10 pm
with nearly everything else. at hospitals inundated with covid patients. experts say the case surge could correlate with a rise in these variants. this so-called double mutant variant that we're talking about with the doctor. meanwhile, the u.s. secretary of state is sending his support to indians in a tweet, promising additional assistance from the u.s. anna cohen is tracking these developments from hong kong and can tell us more about what's playing out there. >> reporter: the situation on the ground is nothing short of a catastrophe. you talk about the shortage of oxygen. that's not just happening in new delhi, the capital. that is happening right across the country. on friday night, one hospital in delhi ran out of oxygen and 20 critically ill patients that were relying on oxygen to stay alive, they died. the chief of that hospital has been in touch with our team in delhi, and he says that they managed to get some more oxygen
10:11 pm
and arrived very early this morning. but it was half the amount of oxygen they need for their patients. it's going to run out in the coming hours. it's not just hospitals that are going through this. it is private citizens as well. because hospitals are turning people away, saying we don't have enough, it is up to the individual to look after their family members. keep them alive. until beds become available in a hospital. so these oxygen cylinders, just to give you an idea, keep a patient breathing for between three to six hours. that's it. and then they have to refill. so this is a constant, constant job for the families of these covid patients. and hospitals are saying, unless you have your own oxygen supply, unless you have your own oxygen cylinder and can supply it with oxygen, do not bring your people here.
10:12 pm
it is just staggering to think that this is happening in india, a country that managed to survive the first wave. if anything, they thought they were over it. and then this second wave, it returned and it returned with a vengeance. people are saying this was completely avoidable if the government had taken the necessary preparations, had stockpiled things like oxygen and medications, had boosted up the crumbling health system. but in fact, it was complacent, it allowed social gatherings, it allowed religious festivals, it allowed life to return to normal. now in delhi, half the cases are the result of this more contagious variant which was first detected in india last year. it is now being detected in switzerland, in the uk. it is afflicting younger people. we have spoken to people from india who say that their loved ones were vaccinated with the
10:13 pm
first shot and still passed away. so we don't know how resistant these vaccines are to this new contagious variant that is spreading. it's a frightening scenario, not just for india, but for the rest of the world. >> anna coren, thanks so much. switzerland has reported its first case of that double mutant variant identified in india. health authorities say the person was a passenger at an airport. then in japan, a new state of emergency goes into effect today in four prefectures, including tokyo. japan is in the middle of a fourth wave of the coronavirus. the new restrictions are set to last through may 11th. the death toll from a fire at a baghdad hospital that treats covid patients has risen to at least 24. over 30 others injured. officials say oxygen tanks exploded, causing the massive blaze. as you can see, videos shared on social media show the chaotic scene as firefighters scramble to get the fire under control. health care workers fervently

10:19 pm
many historians believe 600,000 to 1.5 million were killed in the waning days of the oppmann empire. the turkish government rejected president biden's statement and summoned the u.s. ambassador to make a formal complaint. many american presidents in the past have carefully avoided using the term genocide. joe johns explains why this u.s. president decided to do it now. joe? >> reporter: it's been a long time coming but the american president has now declared in a statement released over this weekend that the atrocities that occurred in turkey 106 years ago being commemorated this very weekend were, in fact, genocide. here's part of that statement. the president writes, each year on this day, we remember the lives of all those who died in the ottoman era armenian genocide and recommit ourselves to preventing such an atrocity from ever again occurring. this recognition has been years
10:20 pm
in the making. in fact, many american presidents have declined to take such a step out of fear of damaging the strategic relationship between the united states and turkey. turkey has also repeatedly denied that there was ever genocide. so the question is, why did joe biden decide to do this at this time? number one, there has been a big lobbying effort that's gone on for decades here in the united states to get this recognition to actually happen. joe biden used it as part of his campaign promises while he was running for president. also, the biden administration has been working very hard to try to stress the importance of human rights here in the united states. there's also a tough relationship between the president of the united states and turkish president erdogan. in fact, joe biden called erdogan on friday, indicating to him that he was going to make
10:21 pm
this statement. previously the president of the united states has referred to him as an autocrat. the turkish government did respond with a long statement. some of it was muted, however. once again, denying there was ever a genocide. also suggesting joe biden may have had domestic political motivations for putting his statement out. at the end of the day, the government did promise to maintain dialog and cooperate with allies. the question going forward is whether there will be any more blowback as a result of this episode. joe johns, cnn, with the president in wilmington, delaware. >> joining me now is james jeffrey, former u.s. envoy for syria, former u.s. ambassador to iraq and turkey, and the current middle east chair at the wilson center. ambassador, thank you very much for joining us this hour. great to have you on the show. so what does this declaration signal? >> thank you for having me.
10:22 pm
first of all, president biden is living up to a commitment that he gave to armenian-americans to take this step, and the step is to call the horrific events that occurred to the ottoman empire, armenians in 1915, a genocide specifically. that's what he promised, that's what he did today. the issue is how that impacts turkey as the successor state to the ottoman empire. >> do you agree with this situation, with this decision? would you have advised the president for or against this decision? >> the last time it came up in 2009, i was the ambassador in ankara, and i advised president obama and vice president biden not to do it. it wasn't a question of the facts, which people argue back and forth. none of us were there in 1915. it's a question of the geopolitical importance of turkey and the sensitivity of the turks, not to the events -- most understand and accept that the ottoman empire did terrible crimes -- but the use of the
10:23 pm
word genocide, which is associated with one country only, and that's nazi germany. >> and so if you advise president obama against doing this, why is this administration making this decision now? why is it now deemed to be in america's national interest to make this call? >> well, i think that, first of all, it's a domestic concern. living up to the commitments that you've made for your voters. i don't think there's any particular geostrategic benefit of doing this. >> but there will be geostrategic implications? >> yes, absolutely. those are downsides with turkey, an extremely important ally of ours, syria, libya, the ukraine, afghanistan, the caucasus, nato, in containing both russia and iran, which are both on the march throughout the middle east and the region. >> so we understand that turkey summoned the u.s. ambassador, that is to be expected, no
10:24 pm
doubt. what other chips is mr. erdogan holding right now? how could he make life difficult for the biden administration? >> first of all, it depends on whether he speaks out personally. sooner or later, he will. he hasn't yet. that may be a good sign. president biden sensibly called erdogan yesterday to give him an alert. what he could do, that is erdogan, is to limit american non-nato military operations out of turkey. we have significant forces and significant use of turkish bases there. secondly, he could make life more difficult for us, particularly in syria, but also in these other areas where we and turkey are more or less on the same tied, but they're all complicated. lib yeah ukraine, so forth. we'll have to wait and see what steps he will take, as well as the usual diplomat ic possible temporary pulling of ambassadors or worse.
10:25 pm
>> is this the biden administration signaling, not necessarily to turkey, but to other countries, that this is the way they're going to do business? what does this open the door towards and for? >> in general, other countries -- again, those countries that are very important on the front lines of the global -- china, russia, iran, north korea -- will believe their geopolitical cooperation with the united states may not be valued as highly as one or another human rights or related value. that's the concern i have with this decision. >> so what do you mean by that? >> what i mean is that they may feel that it's not enough simply to generally have the same attitudes as the united states and the rest of nato, you have to cooperate closely, continuously, and with some pain and internal cost to maintain a solid front on any issue. say syria. there may be problems doing that
10:26 pm
with turkey now, because the turks will not want to have the same communications with us, they won't trust us as much. other countries will look at that and they will conclude the united states does not have our back if there is some internal problem or some ghost from our past or some human rights issue that washington is concerned about. that is what i'm worried about. >> wouldn't the biden administration, particularly many americans, after the trump years, say that's exactly what we need? we need to put our foot down and say america is a bulwark of human rights defense? >> and america is. it's also a bulwark against the march forward, which president biden's own national intelligence community just issued a report on threats. these countries or the march. again, russia, china, iran. and it is very, very important that we build up an alliance, which we have, but make sure it
10:27 pm
works, to block these people. that was a complaint against the trump administration, that we didn't work closely enough with our allies. unfortunately, many of our allies have paths that concern us. they do things today that concern us. >> so what you're saying is, does this damage the alliance with turkey and what are the political implications for that long-term. ambassador james jeffrey, always great to get your perspective, your expertise. you worked so long in that region. thank you very much for joining us. >> thank you for having me. saturday turned into another night of protests and clashes in jerusalem. the palestinian red crescent says 14 palestinians were injured. the clashes erupted around jerusalem's old city as protesters threw rocks and bottles. israeli police responded with stun grenades and rubber bullets. tensions have been high near the old city after police set up barriers to prevent people from congregating there during ramadan.
10:28 pm
haddas, live from jerusalem, tell us more. >> reporter: i'm actually standing outside of damascus gate in that plaza where those clashes have taken place. it's calm right now. but at night is when things have gotten tense here over the past too days. you can still see the barricades set up behind me. outcome we see glass shards, remnants of bottles thrown at police. we can smell the stench of this foul-smelling water that the israeli police spray at the protesters to try to disperse them. tensions have been boiling across the city in jerusalem for several days. not only because of the clashes here in front of damascus gate, also because of individual incidents of physical violence between israelis and palestinians that have gone viral online. there's also a march last week, several hundred jewish extremists who at one point were chant jg death to arabs," marching toward this area. the tensions have also spread to the south, to gaza, where gaza militants have been firing rockets towards israeli communities.
10:29 pm
two nights ago, 36 rockets were fired. last night, three rockets were fired into israel. so far, no injuries have been reported and the israeli armies say they have responded with air strikes targeting gaza militants in the gaza strip. hamas has connected the rockets being fired toward the tensions in jerusalem, saying they have a national and moral duty in protecting the interests of the palestinian people. the israeli prime minister, benjamin netanyahu, has been urging calm in a statement, but he has said that all options are on the table and the israeli army chief has canceled a visit he was supposed to take to the united states as a result of these tensions. the international community has been reacting with rising concern. the u.n.'s mideast envoy for weneslent said provocative actions must cease. u.s. spokesman ned price tweeting, the rhetoric of

welcome back to "cnn newsroom." thanks for joining me. it's 33 minutes past the hour. we are live in atlanta. for baseball fans dreaming of a return to stadium s and hearing the first crack of the back, here is incentive, two shots and you're in. l.a. dodgers are giving you your own fan section if you're fully vaccinated as paul vercammen explains. >> reporter: a sign of the times in the covid-19 era in california, where the positivity rate is just over 1%. look as cross the way at dodger stadium. this is a section that will only allow in fans who have been fully vaccinated. they must prove this. if the fans are between 2 years old and 15, they have to show that they recently passed a covid-19 test. if they were negative, they'll be able to high five each other, they'll be next to each other, they won't be interspersing between seats. basically the idea is to get
10:35 pm
these fans into those sections and they'll feel comfortable standing and sitting around each other. >> you're in the vaccinated section. show us your whatever it is that's allowed you in. >> blue band. and then we have to have our cdc card and our i.d. i feel safer. knowing that everyone around me is vaccinated, just like i am. not that we're going to be covid-free, but we're going to definitely enjoy our time. >> in our section, social distancing is not required because of the vaccine. and so that is something that kind of makes it feel more normal than people sitting 20, 30 feet apart from you. so hopefully with this experimental project that they're working on tonight, that this might take off and actually encourage folks to go get vaccinated. >> reporter: as you saw, those seats were on the second level. they were more than $100 a seat. and we're seeing other teams in california emulate this, the san
10:36 pm
francisco giants and san diego padres, to name a couple. the dodgers exploring doing this again in the future as they are all experimenting with this idea of a section of vaccinated fans only, no one allowed who hasn't been vaccinated or recently tested negative if they're young, for covid-19. a north carolina sheriff promises the public will see body cam footage after deputies shot and killed a black man. protesters took to the streets of elizabeth city for a fourth day to demand transparency and the facts. natasha chen is there. >> reporter: it has now been more than three days since andrew brown jr. was shot and killed by deputies wednesday morning as they were executing a search warrant and arrest warrant which the sheriff says was issued by an alcohol and drug task force.
10:37 pm
the public has been calling for the release of body cam footage, including the family of andrew brown jr. and they're comparing this process to the speed at which other jurisdictions around the u.s. have released their body camera footage after similar police use of force cases recently. it seems that other places have released video much sooner than this county here. the sheriff here explained on saturday afternoon that it is not up to him. in a facebook video that he posted, he explained that it requires a judge to grant the release of that video and that if he gets the assurance of the state bureau of investigation, that releasing the video would not hinder the investigation. the county would also formally file a request on monday to have that video released. on monday we're going to potentially see a number of entities do the same thing. the elizabeth city council met in emergency meeting on friday to also request for that video to be released. and a number of news
10:38 pm
organizations, including cnn, will also formally file for that video to be released. a lot of questions could potentially be answered by seeing this video. the family discussed that at a press conference saturday afternoon where we heard from the oldest son of andrew brown jr. >> with all these killings going on, i never expected this to happen so close to home. like, he left a close and tight family, with each other every day, talking to each other every day. and we, my brothers, my sisters, we is what drove him as a person, we what is made him better. now i've got to live every day, my newborn without getting a chance to meet him at all, and that's going to hurt me every day. i just want justice. >> reporter: at that press conference, community leaders referred to the 911 audio that has been publicly released where emergency responders are heard
10:39 pm
saying that brown was found with a gunshot wound to the back, which is very concerning, of course, for the family, especially when a witness also told cnn that she saw deputies firing at brown's vehicle as he was allegedly driving away. so again, many questions that would potentially be answered and helped by seeing the video, which so far no one has seen, not the family, not city officials in elizabeth city. people are eagerly awaiting those formal filings on monday. in new york, a final good-bye to a music superstar. fans as you can see lining the street in new york as motorcycles escorted the monster truck carrying the coffin of rapper and actor dmx. his family and friends held a celebration of life memorial at

welcome back. the search for an indonesian submarine has turned from a rescue to recovery mission after the navy announced the missing vessel had sunk. search teams found debris believed to be from the submarine at a depth much, much lower and deeper from where the ship and 53 crew members on board could survive.
10:44 pm
blake esic joins us with more on the story. blake, this is not the news family members wanted to hear. >> reporter: not at all. the mood on the ground in indonesia is both a mixture of heartbreak and fading optimism. after four days of searching, hopes of finding the missing indonesian submarine and its 53-person crew alive appear to be gone. a bottle of grease. a metal tube. prayer mats. some of the debris displayed by the indonesian navy, leading them to a bleak status change for a missing submarine carrying 53 crew members. >> translator: with authentic evidence believed to be from kri nangala, we have raised the status from missing to sunk. >> reporter: the sub went missing wednesday during a torpedo drill in the bali strait. it's been a race against time to locate the vessel with oxygen expected to have run out by early saturday.
10:45 pm
officials believe the sub likely cracked under incense water. they say based on the finding, an explosion was unlikely. >> translator: the items would not have come outside the submarine if there was no external pressure or without damage to its tore peat toe launcher. >> reporter: warships have been deployed to the area to search for the vessel, using metal and magnetic detectors. the debris was found floating at a location where the ocean is 850 meters deep, which would make any possible evacuation difficult. authorities said earlier the submarine could not survive at depths below 500 meters. the submarine still hasn't been located. today indonesia has 20 ships and five aircraft including one from the united states searching an area about 40 kilometers north of bali. singapore and malaysia, australia, india have also sent ships, but again, it seems our worst fears have been realized

"nomadland" is nominated for six academy awards including best picture, best director and also best lead actress for frances

mcdormand. and while "nomadland" is considered an oscar front-runner, it is facing major backlash in china. the world's largest film market. david culver is following the controversy from shanghai. david? >> reporter: just a few months back you may not have even known the name chloe zhao. but now the chinese movie director is gaining worldwide fame and her film "nomadland" is raking in the most prestigious awards. >> i love what i do. you know, i want to tell stories for a living. i don't want to do anything else. >> reporter: earlier this year zhao made history, becoming the first asian woman to win a golden globe for best director. she was then named best director at the british academy film awards. and there's growing expectation she'll take home another couple of statues this weekend. >> let's continue with the nominations. chloe zhao, "nomadland." >> if zhao wins the academy award she will make history once again, becoming the first asian woman to win best director at

the oscars. her movie "nomadland squt a poetic portrayal of the life of america's marginalized nomadic community in the wild west, but zhao's journey began in the far east. it's here in beijing where chloe zhao was born and raised. she lived here until she was in her early teens before moving on to boarding school in london and then ultimately to the u.s. it's there she pursued her dream in film making. but in china it's zhao's stepmother who's a bigger celebrity. a famous comedy actress. on the night her stepdaughter won the golden globe song proudly shared the news on chinese social media. "you are a legend in our family," she wrote, adding "i believe your story will inspire countless chinese kids." song's 21 million followers rapidly spread the news. state media was quick to call zhao the pride of china and "nomadland" was estimate slated to be released in chinese media on april 23rd. but the hype and praise was quickly overshadowed by a nationalistic backlash.
10:54 pm
comments zhao reportedly made in an interview with filmmaker magazine surfaced and sparked controversy. zhao was quoted saying china is a place where there are lies everywhere. in another interview with an australian website in december zhao was misquoted as saying america is now my country. the site later corrected her quote to say america is not her country. but the damage was done. chinese nationalists piled on, accusing zhao of insulting china. one person commenting "she is anti-china and anti-the communist party." another calling for china to boycott "nomadland." back on the streets of beijing folks a bit more accepting. >> translator: i don't think a director's film should be tied to what she says or does. i want to watch her work. but she should probably be careful with what she says. >> reporter: others happy to see a chinese movie director become so successful. >> translator: we should find time to go and watch the movie. >> reporter: but it's now unlikely they'll be able to watch the film in a chinese movie theater. the online controversy's led it to be pulled from cinemas across
10:55 pm
china. neither zhao nor searchlight pictures have commented. >> there certainly has been a real wellspring of this new highly nationalistic and patriotic sentiment that has come up. this is really one of the unfortunate aftereffects of this kind of troll culture. and it also shows us it's not just regulated to weibo or other chinese social media platforms but it really does have real world impact when those in power actually pick up on this same discourse and start to endorse it. >> reporter: in a matter of days zhao went from beloved to having her film banned in what is now the world's biggest movie market. but as the online criticisms stack up in china, the accolades continue to roll in from the rest of the world. david culver, cnn, shanghai. >> thanks, david, for that. so it has been a monumental week for space exploration. >> the first to ingress onto the
