the 11-minute flight will give them three minutes of weightlessness at the edge of space, 62 miles from the earth's surface. each has less than 15 seconds to fasten and unfasten their seat harness. experiencing more than 5gs in force as the ship falls back to earth. this launch just days after richard branson became the first to fly aboard his own spaceship beating bezos in the so-called billionaire space race. >> all you kids down there, i was once a child with a dream. >> reporter: meanwhile, bezos and the crew will soon head to a remote desert site in van horn, texas. we'll be heading there too and cover it all from there on tuesday morning. guys? >> we know you'll be on the scene, gio. let's get more on this from our aviation expert stephen ganyard. let's start out with the differences between the branson spaceflight and this bezos
7:35 am
upcoming spaceflight. >> yeah, george, what bezos is doing, it's a rocket ship. what richard branson had was really a glider with a small rocket on it. so one uses an airplane to go up to the edge of space, one is a rocket that will come back down on a parachute. two very different ways. about the same amount of weightlessness, three to four minutes and a lot of money. >> yeah, a lot of money, steve. steve, what is the next step in space travel? >> michael, there are competing visions. really musk and bezos driving this revolution in space. musk wants to go to mars. he wants to colonize other planets to colonize the solar system and he said he wants to die on mars, just not on impact. bezos has a very different vision. he wants to leave the earth to save it. he wants to decrease our reliance on earth's resources, do things polluting outside the atmosphere. bezos wants to leave the earth to save it. musk wants to colonize the solar system. >> do you foresee a day when space travel will be widely
7:36 am
available to folks who aren't billionaires? >> i think so, cecilia. what we're seeing now are larger rockets that are reusable. so the cost of launch is coming down. back in the space shuttle days it cost about $25,000 to put one pound into orbit. now elon musk has driven that cost down to about $700. so cheaper into orbit means that the possibility for us mere mortals to be able to visit space could be sooner rather than later. >> all right, steve ganyard, thank you so much. >> could be getting closer. you can watch the liftoff live on tuesday morning right here on abc. >> we will be watching. now to the new anthony bourdain documentary. the director under fire after revealing he used a.i. technology to re-create the late celebrity chef's voice to say some things he may not have voiced out loud. t.j. holmes has the story. good morning again, t.j. >> hey there, stra.
7:37 am
let's be clear what we're talking about. these are things that anthony bourdain wrote. these are things -- these were his words but he wrote them. no audio evidence he said them out loud. so the director wants to use those but doesn't have audio. what did he do? he decides to fake it and that has now brought up kind of a recent debate and criticism about using technology to bring back celebrities who have died. >> you're probably going to find out about it anyway. so here's a little preemptive truth telling. there's no happy ending. >> reporter: three years after his death anthony bourdain helps tell his own story in his own words in the new documentary "roadrunner." >> i said earlier i would tell you the truth. this is part of it. >> reporter: parts of the film are narrated in bourdain's voice created by stitching together audio recordings from throughout his career as a writer and host of the tv shows "no reservations" and "parts unknown." >> one i was standing next to a deep fryer and next watching the
7:38 am
sunset. >> reporter: the director morgan neville revealed it's not all bourdain's voice. instead he used artificial intelligence software to replicate his voice on a few quotes attributed to bourdain that bourdain may have never spoken out loud like this one. it's a quote bourdain wrote in an email to a friend before his death by suicide. >> you are successful and i am successful and i'm wondering, are you happy? >> reporter: that is actually not bourdain according to envelope, but voiced by artificial intelligence. he tells "the new yorker" if you watch the film you probably don't know what the other lines are that were spoken by the a.i. and you're not going to know adding we can have a documentary ethics panel about it later. >> don't tell me what things look like. tell me what they are. >> reporter: technology has been used before to re-create the likeness of a celebrity who has passed. famously carrie fisher appeared post hue mousily in "the rise of
7:39 am
skywalker" which was previously unreleased footage. critics point out that was for an actor playing a role, not a real person the subject of a documentary. >> it's sensitive because anthony bourdain obviously had a tragic death. this and similar uses will continue to be a gray area for quite some time. >> reporter: neville says he got permission from bourdain's widow saying it was a modern storytelling technique i used in a few places where i thought it was important to make tony's words come alive. you all think about what they can do now, the deaging they can do with the technology for actors now. they brought back audrey hepburn and bruce lee for commercials to sell products and think about peter cushing in "rogue one" from "star wars," they used his voice after he passed. this will continue to be a debate. the director said, look, i wasn't putting words in his mouth. they are his words. >> he did write them. >> he did write them. so it's fascinating and a fascinating life and fascinating
7:40 am

8:18 am
to be there, right? so somewhere during the supply chain process, somewhere during the manufacturing process, some of these products got contaminated. now we know that high levels of benzene have been linked with certain types of cancer, however, the amounts detected in these particular products appears to be relatively low and we actually breathe in low levels of benzene every day, especially if you live in a city, right? because it's in the air from things like car exhaust and cigarette smock. >> and we know all of the recalled sunscreens were aerosol in those cans so a lot of folks might be wondering if creams are safer to buy. >> so you're correct. five of the products, there were five that were recalled were all aerosol sprays so four are neutrogena, one was aveeno, quite honestly we don't know why the sprays were more likely to be contaminated than the creams or lotions but in general when i'm counseling my patients, i often tell people try to use the creams, the gels, the lotions as opposed to the sprays because it's very difficult to get an even application of the spray and there are some theoretical concerns when it comes to inhalation as well.
8:19 am
>> you talked to us about this so many times. sunscreens are essential. what are you telling patients who might come to you if they're concerned hearing this news? >> you know, the benefits still outweigh the risks. ultraviolet rays are a known carcinogen. melanoma can be deadly. so i still recommend using sunscre sunscreen, and or relying on sun protective fabrics. keep using your sunscreen, just avoid these particular products for now. >> all right, dr. bowe, thank you so much. george. time to head back to paris and now we're taking a look at what americans can expect as the city of light re-opens and maggie rulli is there live. hey, maggie. >> reporter: hey, george. i had to do a lot of sampling of those restaurants to make sure everything was okay, but i'm happy to report that paris is shining brighter than ever. look at these views. the views are gorgeous. the city that we watch in movies is just as wonderful. he baguettes, yes, they taste
