  • It`s the last time I`ll say it this school year -- Fridays are awesome.

  • We appreciate you watching our last show until August 17th.

  • I`m Carl Azuz for CNN STUDENT NEWS.

  • First up, another aspect to recent unrest in Baltimore, Maryland.

  • There`s enough narcotics on the streets of Baltimore

  • to keep it intoxicated for a year.

  • Criminals are selling those stolen drugs.

  • There are -- there are turf wars happening,

  • which are leading to violence and shootings in our city.

  • Police say at least 175,000 dosage of prescription drugs

  • were stolen during Baltimore`s riots in April.

  • It could be a factor in the surge of violent crime that the city`s scene since then.

  • The unrest followed the death of Freddie Gray.

  • Six police officers were charged in connection with it.

  • Gray was fatally injured while in police custody after he was arrested in April.

  • Peaceful protests, violent protests and looting followed.

  • That`s when so many drugs were stolen from 27 pharmacies and two clinics.

  • Prescription drug abuse is not limited to Baltimore.

  • It`s a problem seen in every part of the country.

  • Experts say doctors, patients and pharmacists

  • can all play a part in identifying and preventing prescription drug abuse.

  • Two new announcements to tell you about is more competitors

  • enter the 2016 race for the White House.

  • Lincoln Chafee made it official on Wednesday.

  • He served Rhode Island as a Republican U.S. senator.

  • Then, he was an independent governor of his state,

  • and now, he`s running for the Democratic Party`s presidential nomination.

  • Rick Perry announced his candidacy on Thursday.

  • He served as a governor of Texas for 14 years.

  • He ran in the 2012 presidential race and he says

  • he`s looking for a second chance for the Republican Party`s nomination in 2016.

  • That makes a total of 14 people, 10 Republicans and four Democrats,

  • who officially entered the race. More candidates are expected to join them.

  • I want to thank for the tens of thousands of roll call

  • requests received this year in our transcript page.

  • Today`s three schools on the roll. Drum roll.

  • Troy High School, Fullerton, California --

  • the Warriors are watching CNN STUDENT NEWS.

  • Ballard High School, Louisville, Kentucky.

  • Thanks to the Bruins for bearing with our pun.

  • And, South Central Junior/Senior High School in Union Mills, Indiana.

  • It`s awesome to be broadcasting with the satellite.

  • Speaking of satellites, NASA is celebrating an anniversary this week.

  • It`s been 50 years since the first U.S. spacewalk was made.

  • Since then, there had been more than 260 strolls into space.

  • Most of them had been done to work on the International Space Station,

  • part of its estimated $75 billion to the U.S.

  • But many of the astronauts who`ve taken a spacewalk would call it priceless.

  • OK, I`m out.

  • OK, now, (INAUDIBLE)

  • They were the first American boots to step into space.

  • NASA astronaut Ed White left the hatch of Gemini IV 50 years ago this week,

  • strapped to a tether 250 miles high above the Earth.

  • Twenty-three minutes later,

  • White returned to the spacecraft which

  • he would later described as one of the saddest moments of his life.

  • Going outside, when you have that

  • full panoramic view through your helmet, is just amazing.

  • Soviet cosmonaut Alexei Leonov did it first.

  • American Ed White`s mission came three months later.

  • But it was White who proved that productive work

  • could be done outside a spacecraft. That paved the way to this.

  • It`s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.

  • NASA astronauts had performed hundreds of spacewalks

  • since Neil Armstrong`s famous moon landing.

  • Once we get that mike, we`re going to go ahead and verify our (INAUDIBLE)

  • Michael Foreman has done five of them,

  • spending more than 32 hours in zero gravity.

  • You`re not 100 percent sure how you`re going to feel

  • until you experience that for the very first time.

  • Fortunately for me, I felt very comfortable out there

  • and it was just like muscle memory took over

  • when I went out that hatch the very first time

  • because I was just so used to doing the same thing here

  • in the training that we had in the pool.

  • Now, one hour and three minutes into today`s spacewalk.

  • In 1973, when Skylab was damaged,

  • repairs were made to the solar panels in space to keep it in orbit.

  • During 1980s, astronauts began using jet packs to fix satellites and carry out repairs.

  • Sounds great, Dan. A great effort all around.

  • It took five back to back spacewalks to repair and upgrade the Hubble telescope.

  • All right. (INAUDIBLE) adjustable rather goes down.

  • Space walks are almost routine, part of the building

  • and maintenance of the International Space Station,

  • which orbits the Earth at more than 17,000 miles an hour.

  • There`s a chance that horseracing history will be made this Saturday.

  • And this horse named American Pharoah could be the one to do it.

  • His owner says he`s like a pet. This weekend,

  • he`ll be trying to win the Triple Crown, a sweep of three famous races.

  • He`s already won the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness Stakes.

  • The last in the series is the Belmont Stakes this Saturday.

  • Winning the Triple Crown is hard to do, even for an animal born to run.

  • Last time it happened was 37 years ago.

  • The race in New York is considered the toughest.

  • Not sure what American Pharoah or his competitors would do

  • if they saw themselves in a mirror,

  • but we now know what some animals in the African wild do.

  • A French photographer traveled to the nation of Gabon

  • and set up a mirror and a camera. Fortunately, the mirror was tough.

  • What he found was that though some primates act tough at first,

  • many later make peace. Big cats touched or played with their reflections.

  • Elephants seem the most uninterested.

  • They`ve already seen a few trunk shows

  • and didn`t need to make their feelings hurt.

  • Some others look gorilla mad or maybe got a little catty

  • or maybe just want to monkey around.

  • In a way, it kind of mirrored the behavior of us.

  • You and your teachers are more awesome than Fridays.

  • We appreciate your viewership, your email, post, tweets, letters.

  • It has been a blessing for us to bring you the show.

  • And we hope to see you again on August 17th.

  • I`m Carl Azuz.

  • On behalf of our CNN STUDENT NEWS staff in Atlanta, Georgia -- thank you.

It`s the last time I`ll say it this school year -- Fridays are awesome.
