what ideas do they have for their future. g.w. dot com african megacities for the melting. clicks counter. after 16 years as german chancellor angela merkel is stepping down in september who will be her successor it could be her underling the bearable co-leader of the green party now the greens are going from strength to stream in the polls thanks to her the same cannot be said about merkel's own party to conservative governors who want to be the candidate have spent the last week locking horns and ugly private public fight in the voters say they don't wife what they're seeing tonight choosing a chancellor candidate here in germany helped to make the competition green with

envy i'm bored golf in berlin this is the day. good and dark as a time when all the arguments have been made everything is said and then it has to be decided. we need to talk to each other in the coming days and he didn't because i'm personally ready to take responsibility. and that's the aim is that the seat and sears you parties within the federal election wouldn't just tax by giving in charge of the decision on whether this off a company excepted be decided by the c.p.u. in the end. also coming up fly like an airplane hover like a helicopter and go down in the history books that is what happened today when a small robotic chopper named ingenuity lifted off and hovered over the surface of mars. and that our data. on.
10:32 pm
her part of her life. parked right out of hard aircraft on another planet. to our viewers on p.b.s. in the united states and to all of you around the world welcome we begin the day with the woman who could very soon make political history. here in germany today the green party announced its chancellor candidate ahead of the national election in september her name is on the lena fair ball and she is coed leader of the greens she embodies what her party has never had until now a real chance of winning at the federal level after election day unwilling to bear book could become the 1st green chance of that germany has ever had their box popularity has much to do with being the right person in the right party at the right time in a world focused more than ever on climate change the greens have instant
10:33 pm
credibility plus their stance on china and russia is considered clear and tough if they own the zeit geist their rivals well they're scrambling to buy into it you could think that after 16 years with uncle americal his chancellor her conservatives would be best equipped to win yet again and you would be thinking incorrectly the 2 governors vying to be the conservative candidate have tried with no success to decide among themselves and in private which of the 2 will be the one political infighting with leaks to the outside polls show americans party falling further behind what they are losing it appears the greens are easily able to take for themselves. with 2 party leaders one needed to step aside and harvick did so making an early now bear book the 1st green chancellor candidate ever in her 1st speech she promised a renewal and german politics and
10:34 pm
a departure from the status quo. citizens imagine if i get in must make changes to create a fair country a country where daycare centers and schools are truly the best places to be in a country where caregivers genuinely have the time and above all the resources to care for people so come on a country in which the state functions digitally and serves its citizens. a diverse and cosmopolitan country of values space and strong democracy after. the 40 year old became politically active within the green party in 2008 focusing on foreign and security issues only 5 years later she entered the border start the german parliament at the age of 32 there she quickly and respect for her thorough nasa knowledge of detail she has a degree in international law and spent several years abroad in the us london and brussels she now lives in potsdam with her husband and their 2 young daughters best
10:35 pm
series yet they carefully choreographed announcement came in sharp contrast to the bruising power struggle still going on within germany's conservative party both contenders there were quick to react to bear box candidacy. and early in a big. bear book and i can promise her that the c.d.u. in germany is looking forward to a fair election campaign. in fear when it comes. it will be about the 1st place conservatives the greens hopefully it will be a fair good and argumentative but also ambitious election campaign. because he would have me so i would be very happy to be a part of it but we are not there yet you know me. well the conservatives us still squabbling internally on any now baucus already focusing on the general election in september and on becoming i'm going to mecca of success are the talk about this i'm
10:36 pm
joined tonight by patrick since bork he's a member of the german parliament for the christian democrat party that that's the conservative party of chancer i'm going to medical mysteries in sport it's good to see you again i want to talk about your conservatives just a moment but i have to start by asking you when you look at how smoothly the greens have should spend their chance their candidate you as a conservative doesn't it make you somewhat jealous maybe a bit jealous on your science of greens deciding was out the party members and made a decision just didn't close shops and groups behind the party members so in the end i'm not sure if these unity will stay a long time well that mean that's true that you're talking about the inner workings of the party but on the outside it's been incredibly smooth for the greens is it embarrassing for the conservatives we're not in a situation that's quite sure we are struggling about the person who will be old
10:37 pm
leader in the candidacy florent chancellery so of course a little bit jealous but on the other side of the greens has to prove this unity in the party and i don't think this unity will stay long when we come into the issues of the particular thing so let's see who will be better in the end you know one could say that the conservative would be candidates are mean lush it and marcus is good or they are the astra zeneca vaccines of this campaign whereas on a bare bark is the bio on take 5 but dern a candidate which shot missed is inspire which shot would you choose. we should think both at this time and that doesn't mean we will see you know green and conservative coalition in the end i think we need both and in the end some maybe astra zeneca will make the decision well who do you want to see as chancellor handed i think on the last chance is representing the bigger sister of the 2
10:38 pm
parties and so i think it's in the end of a struggle that will be made by i'm going to lash out the decision is taking a long time this makes a lot of party members unsatisfied we will involve and you clued the district leaders of the consumptive parties so they will get the volunteering also as it seems right now so it's a long time struggle but in the end i think it will be on the last missive where is there any resolution to this dispute between army and lush and markers in which mr lush doesn't lose a great deal of authority i mean he is the leader of the c.d.u. your party that's true and i think it's a question that you should mark to some of our he told us that he will accept the decision also see to you then he changed his mind he's looking to if you can your
10:39 pm
polls up to polls are changing now he said again he will accept a decision of the c.d.u. the c.d.u. has made it clear decision we have a discussion now that some members of the c.d.u. a little bit skeptic but in the end i think it will be the last and marcus and the c.s.u. has to accept that if mr la should if he does not win here and become the chancer candidate can he stay on as party leader a cd you party leader. i think he will stay on in this situation and he will of course stay on as leader of the got home and not famous fabian he's making such a joke there and so i think that all will be inside the discussion right now and in the end i think we will see that i mean i'm not sure it will be the candidate for chancery for the conservative party you and i we have spoken 'd before about a man by the name of friedrich merits as a possible chancellor candidate he came close to being elected head of the
10:40 pm
conservative c.d.u. party but he didn't win but he came close and now there are calls for him again to be the chancellor candidate but how realistic is that hope i think this decision will be made between marco sudar from the bavarian c.s.u. and lush it from the c.d.u. so i think it's just between these 2 possible candidates and i think the decision will be made very soon and my opinion is that i mean let's it will be the candidate for the election in september and so you don't think mr maritz figments you don't think that he has any hopes here in you know being some you know last minute surprises in the decision making of who's going to be the chance or candidate. no i don't think so political party of the c.d.u. and see as you 2 together we're not waiting for last minute surprise we are discussing fact with the pa to you to hold the leaders of this.
10:41 pm
security force so i think solution mansell play a very important role in the new government but in the end this just an off chance well maybe some in-between mark was it for we will certainly be watching closely to see what decision what solution comes out of those meetings they're taking place mr potter exams board member of the german parliament for the c.d.u. the christian democrat party mr zuckerberg as always we appreciate your time and your insights tonight thank you thank you very much. for now to the pandemic the united states is the country hardest hit by the corona virus pandemic with nearly 570000 deaths but its vaccination program is by far the most successful in the world more than 130000000 people have had at least one coded 19 jail now that is half of the adult population and the country has now opened up
10:42 pm
vaccines to teenagers as well. daily training during the penn demick that's how these 2 brothers have gotten through the last month both. get vaccinated yes as promised teenagers a jab then your future being that age is hard enough with the code restrictions it has been even more challenging i think for me it's a mental health and of course like school that thing i was worried like getting back that they're not going to school and get behind but i think that ways to catch up with academics might with growth and socialization you know it's that's how that this school has been moved into the living room the boys cond wait to get their bikes and. i think. so it keeps the people my people around me safer and i don't keep myself safe but except when we bring
10:43 pm
a little normality back i don't miss school exactly but the people in school because you know it it's really difficult not to interact people and talk to people and yeah i mean he's an awesome guy he's just really. you know friends. them an additional obstacle mosques. it's very hard to see people's expressions and it just gives the sense of like you're talking to a wall. this is an audio. or you book the us this quick with vaccinations but what if as in other countries the restrictions remained it would definitely obviously my social skills. already way not very not the more social i'm going personally.
10:44 pm
i think i would not really be good for me this one trying to go back to school lucy brown is a social worker and sees the huge opportunity in teenage makes the nation teens need to be with their peers and need to be taking social risks and doing things on their own outside of the confines of their family home for a teenager to have the opportunity to vaccinate i think is tremendous to give them that freedom to move about with a lot more confidence but for both themselves and for their parents that they can go about their lives and do the things that they're developmentally supposed to be doing right now outside of the u.s. most teenagers don't have access to the vaccine yet they have to find other ways to keep going some countries in europe are struggling to get enough vaccine doses for their populations but that is not the case in serbia where until recently foreigners were being invited to take up the offer of surplus shots where the
10:45 pm
government has now decided to stop the booming vaccine tourism and has decided to place more focus on getting serbian residents to say yes to corona virus vaccines 1st he wus funny to char reports tonight from belgrade. yes it is the next person in line stern about 4000 doses are being administered here today at the biggest coffee vaccination center in the country has procured some 15000000 vaccines for a population of 7000000 serbia has more vaccines on offer than serbians to want them in fact there's a surplus of russia on all chinese and up other vaccines so the country had been inviting foreigners to take the jabs the emphasis is on had on the 9th of april the government decided to suspend the vaccination for a nurse on to food a notice about 30000 had received the vaccine so far
10:46 pm
a lot of foreigners came back to now it's impossible because of the commission of the government so they need to be a resident here or get married here or something like that. for for now the announcement came after a soup is infection rates began rising again the government had apparently realised he needed to convince more of its own citizens to get a jap 1st at least one in 3 people in serbia believes to some extent in conspiracy theories that claim that scenes are unsafe. chip design equipment and he will see everyone who got the vaccine will soon die. i think of that scene is not safe enough and that's why i don't want to get it is to 2 days and that skepticism is also apparent on the great streets restaurants are food open at almost no one is wearing a mask epidemiologist so don't buy the vinyl each says the government focused too
10:47 pm
much on positive news about procuring that seems why not doing enough to actually stand the spread of the virus because of a popular dish that the government and our leader of us are following all of demonstrating that is his more able than anyone on arrows any idea really there to provide that what is needed and he ignored the fact that it 1st necessary to educate people so far about 1200000 people have been fully vaccinated in subiaco according to official numbers a high percentage by comparison with other countries in europe but far from enough to and soon be a spent dummy in an effort to increase immunization c.v.s. the government has no storage focusing on its own citizens instead of foreigners if you could understand serbian you would be able to read the message on the side of this local bus it says get vaccinated. was millions and millions of people around
10:48 pm
the board remained separated by pandemic travel restrictions people living in australia and new zealand are now free to visit each other again the 2 countries have opened a quarantine free travel bubble and for the 1st time in more than a year airports have become scenes of emotional you. they reunited after more than a year apart families friends and grandparents smooching their not so new born grandchildren for the 1st time and relief as a travel bubble between australia and new zealand finally opens. for repairs and so long is going to have no words i'm just so grateful that i could come back and i like she is here right now this welcome home is testament to both country's efforts in fighting the pandemic they've managed to defeat the virus with strict border
10:49 pm
controls and quarantine requirements. it was really weird feeling to be allowed to and numerous feels like breaking the rules a movie that we haven't seen for the for 14 months thank goodness busying and messenger and stuff yes so interesting there announced it at 4 o'clock last she's a tempest for i've booked a ticket that's right away has been very on time and so much life is evidence and it it's so nice to see. these are the 1st steps towards what a strange and new zealand hope will become a gradual view with the rest of the world. that we have started that it really is just so wonderful to be up to i mean you know so this week the bells boarded cite. the travel bubble had to be setbacks for months after small i breaks in both countries and i everyone is hoping that the bubble will burst.
10:50 pm
history was made today on more nasa says it's mars exploration helicopter with the name ingenuity and successfully slow on the red planet flight controllers in california were jubilant when they received confirmation of the person. the person stood. watch. 60. yet. this animation makes it look effortless but making a helicopter fly on mars costs tens of millions of dollars and years of hard work. despite being a miracle of modern engineering ingenuity couldn't have made it to mars on its own instead it had to hitch a ride on the perseverance rover tucked away inside the vehicle. once the cover was
10:51 pm
removed. engineers were able to gradually unfold the helicopter by remote control from earth. after the final checks the perseverance rover transmitted flight commands to the tiny chopper which began its 1st test flight in an atmosphere then as the earth's stratosphere. in the 1st 31 days ingenuity plans to make 5 autonomous flights. after each trip it will transmit the data collected to the perseverance rover which beams it back to earth and mere hours. scientists ingenuity will mark the beginning of a new chapter in mars exploration as it can go where rovers can't and see things
10:52 pm
invisible to space probes. scientists hope that in the near future ingenuity successors will be able to go a step further and explore these mysterious caves or other hard to reach areas such as mountains or canyons. thanks to ingenuity we're closer than ever to unlocking new and exciting secrets of our mysterious planetary neighbor and back here on earth i'm joined now by nicole smith's she's a scientist at the german errors space center nicole it's good to have you on the program we know that this helicopter flight made history that's that's clear but why is being able to have a word body helicopter flying on mars why is that so important to well you see this was not only the 1st powered controlled flights beacon on mars this was also the 1st bulletin folks night it turned out somewhere outside the earth testing
10:53 pm
likened by nasa in the last days to the white brothers films well and then that one event sleeps 3 the wright brothers the mess for the 1st time to 2 o'clock control china's and that change spurs and just like this we think that based seats might change the way her weeks there are other plans and moons and then everything basically everybody in the and also the system that has that miss you. from they on we are able to at the evidence and then on the bounds of the seconds day i read today that the ingenuity has a piece of material in it that is taken from the original wright brothers' airplane so yeah i mean it does it connects flight on earth flight on mars how hard is it to fly on mars. well that's actually really hot there were lots of challenges that a team had to overcome and i have to say test things that many times today but i have to say it again huge bonus of that to make that happen minus just as much as
10:54 pm
it sending planets and it's even watch and try to make something fly on the last because nasa has a very very simple few. if you try to fly something on the surface like you try to make it the it's a little bit 'd of this is like this we just that we need to do today that's the same a city with the tried to have a helicopter fly in such a kilometers over the u.s. census and why many people would know that even even mountain rescue operations and like mount everest very very difficult and some never through to as useless as you come to so that's a there's a sense you know to yeah. let me ask you about what research you're doing and you've been working on interpretation of data gathered by the camera on the rover perseverence what do you see. yeah exactly i'm a member of the president's rubber science team meant specifically i'm member of
10:55 pm
the. team that operates the 2 stereotype models that are sitting on the mast 2 meters and over the top of the 1st and right now what you wrote was actually parts of this bucket is for the ones you overlook right now the rover is kind of limited but i wouldn't want to use the word limited because it's a great honor to do this but right now we are basically setting us a communication late that ingenuity what it's doing it's test flight but that's actually quite good because it has some time to review what we have seen so far on mars and has a sometimes actually think about where we wanted light from from now on what's the next step for the rover will be the data that's of a debt and all of them but it. doesn't play turn the can the left has been suspended and we are sinking right now not to mention that actually ok nicole smith unfortunately we're out of time but regulations do you have everyone on the team
10:56 pm
working on this nickel schmidt scientist at the german aerospace center thank you. well the days almost on the conversation continues online and you'll find us on twitter you know news you can call me a brit golf t.v. and remember whatever happens between now and then tomorrow is another day we'll see you then everybody. in. the food.

this is news live from berlin tonight the murder trial that the world is watching and the verdict of the world is waiting for lawyers to live in their closing arguments today to the jury that will soon decide is former minneapolis police officer. guilty or not guilty of killing george full is also coming up tonight germany's green party makes its 1st ever bid for chancellor naming. their candidate to take the reins from until america can she lead her party to victory in the elections in september.
11:01 pm
it's good to have you with us we begin in the u.s. state of minnesota with the closing arguments in the trial of a former police officer charged with killing george floyd today the prosecution and the defense wrapped up their cases and now the jury will have to decide whether derek should have been is guilty of 2nd degree murder people across the country are bracing for the verdicts and the protests that are sure to follow if he is acquitted. guilty or not guilty that's the question 12 men and women will have to answer while the country waits the defendant derek chauvin was fired from the minneapolis police department last year after george floyd died in his custody a video of the incident shows chauvin holding floyd face down with his knee for more than 9 minutes it's sparked
11:02 pm
a nationwide protest against police brutality. i can't breathe in resting it's case the prosecution tried to persuade the jury that this was not about condemning all police but holding show been responsible for his actions and only you. have the power. to convict the defendant of these crimes. and in so doing. and in so doing declare that this use of force was unreasonable. it was excessive it was grossly disproportionate is not an excuse for the shocking abuse that you saw with your own eyes and you can believe your own eyes. as the defense made its closing arguments chauvin who had declined to testify remove the mask that had been hiding his face for most of the trial. officer show then had no intent to purposefully use he did not purposefully use on lawful force
11:03 pm
it's it's these are officers doing their job in a highly stressful situation. george floyd's death rekindled a debate in the us about police tactics that rights activists say disproportionately impact black minority and poor communities as the trial came to a close activists gathered outside the courtroom. like go or whatever way this road to go we won't stop till the last say. protesters are awaiting the verdict in minneapolis and the surrounding area where over 3009. guard have been sent in anticipation of unrest the office and from where we want to go to be used to fund simons he's standing by for us at the courthouse in minneapolis he's been on this story from the very beginning good evening to you stefan so talk to me a little bit about what's going on where you are and then talk to me about the thrust of these closing arguments. yeah ok so just before
11:04 pm
we got to lying on the with you now here was a big press conference here with the reverend al sharpton representatives of the show and some really and a bunch of their lawyer staff several lawyers and you know world press is he a local press your national press this is really a lot of interest from around the world of course and of course in the united states and what's going on here today because this is an in very very important day this was closing argument day and now the next step is of course sending the jurors 12 jurors into deliberations they will be sequestered they will be isolated they have their will be having their hands on all the evidence which was presented during the tot trial all the transcript all of this but they are on their own and they have to make a decision guilty or not guilty and it takes only $11.00 juror to disagree with all the others on any count on any charge and then this is going to be
11:05 pm
a very very tricky outcome however today the prosecution again there was this proportionate violence or patella t. or action from derek shaw. against george floyd and that cost and then support for the prosecution caused the death of. mr flight now the defense of course is entirely different they say that mr sherman was a reasonable officer and that he acted in reason now reasonable officer reacting in reasoned and reasonable doubt you see this all works together and the defense place on this they want to make this connection there they did it now it's going to be after the after the jury becomes directions another advice from the from the judge from mr cahill they will go into deliberations and they will have to wait to have any idea stefan of when we could get a verdict. yeah that would be guessing i wouldn't really be able to tell you of
11:06 pm
firmly oh it's tomorrow it's done no there's no way of telling actually they these people who say like look the faster this is over the faster the jury comes to a conclusion all agree on the probably the better for the prosecution the longer it will take that should be that same people say that that should be an indicator for trouble in the jury pool meaning that there's disagreement that they need to really find a way to convince one or more jurors off the general thrust they go in with so that would be beneficial for the defense again it could be tomorrow the day after that it could take days and weeks even and we know that the world is waiting for this verdict because. it could set off what we have to say is a powder keg i mean you're standing right in the middle of it aren't. i absolutely right they's no doubt this city or this state i would think it's fair to say the
11:07 pm
entire united states and all the metropolitan areas in the united states l l a new york washington d.c. atlanta what have you they all on edge everybody is on and she tensions are here high you don't see this when you see the fence here behind me and maybe the ok tional national guard the soldier there on top of the head of the county government center but all those security forces and safety authorities basically are prepared to for the worst and everybody is fearing the worst everywhere not just here all over the united states nobody wants violence. because the verdict is not what people here expect people here expect a guilty verdict in anything but that is for them unacceptable all right. there on top of that powder keg of beer in minneapolis stefan thank you. our here's a look now at some of the other stories that are making headlines around the world
