CARL AZUZ: A new week of
"CNN 10" starts right now.

I'm Carl Azuz, explaining
events from around the world.

Thank you for taking
10 minutes to watch.

A massive storm system
welled up last week

in the United States, a nation
that consistently has the most

violent weather in the world.
When we put this show together,
there were 90 million people--

more than a quarter of
the entire US population--

who were under the threat
of destructive weather.

In Texas, Louisiana,
and Mississippi,

at least five people
were killed as the system

swept across the South
on Saturday and Sunday.

A tornado was spotted in
southeast Alabama Sunday

morning.
And that wasn't the only threat.
A CNN meteorologist said
the storms also carried

damaging winds and hail.
The National Weather Service
warned people in the path

that torrential
rains could cause

flash flooding in some areas.
Monroe County in
northeast Mississippi

was hit particularly hard,
according to its sheriff.

He said the area was a mess
after homes, businesses,

and a fire station
were destroyed.

There was also a lot
of flooding there.

And two states east,
in Georgia, tee times

were scheduled earlier for
the Masters Golf Tournament

on Sunday, because heavy
storms were expected to pass

through later that night.
In fact, a tornado watch was
issued for the city of Augusta,

as well as parts of South
Carolina, Sunday night.

Knowing the difference
between a watch and a warning

can help you know what
action you should take.

- When severe weather strikes,
one of the most common

questions we get--
what's the difference

between a watch and a warning?
Well, just for
comparison's sake,

let's take this
stoplight-- green light,

yellow light, red light.
Sometimes, the National
Weather Service

will issue a hazardous
weather outlook, an advisory.

Treat this as a green light.
Know that the possibility
of rough weather

is there, but go about
your day as you would.

Just stay alert.
But as conditions
tend to ripen, we

may see a tornado watch
issued by the National

Weather Service.
Use this with more caution.
This means conditions
are favorable for tornado

development.
And so you need to know
what you should do in case

a tornado strikes.
That's where the
warning comes in.

If the radar has indicated a
tornado or someone has spotted

a tornado in
progress, that's when

the tornado warning is issued.
And you should get to your
safe place immediately.

Stop what you're doing
and seek shelter.

CARL AZUZ: 10-second trivia.
[BEEPING]
Where would you most
likely find regolith?

Off Iceland's coast, in
Earth's core, on the moon,

or on Jupiter's surface.
Regolith is a loose,
rocky covering

of the planet's surface.
Scientists say Jupiter
has no firm surface,

so the answer here is the moon.
It launched into
space in February

and circled the
Earth several times

before being slingshotted away.
It traveled a total
of 4 million miles,

and finally reached the
moon, but not in the way

Israeli scientists
hoped it would.

Their unmanned, privately
funded spacecraft

was supposed to make a soft
controlled landing there,

but communication was lost
when it was about 500 feet

away from the moon's surface.
And it was traveling toward
it at 310 miles per hour,

so, well, boom.
If it had been successful, this
would have been the first time

a private organization
made a controlled landing

with the smallest budget.
Still, the team and
their nation's leader

have suggested
this isn't the end.

MICHAEL HOLMES: There were high
hopes and high drama, and, in

the end, high disappointment,
for the people

behind this ambitious, privately
funded $100 million project.

From the beginning, it was
a case of the little guy

shooting for the moon, or,
more precisely, a soft landing

on the moon.
And they nearly made it
with their spacecraft,

Beresheet, which means genesis.
There was a crowd that
included the prime minister

Benjamin Netanyahu watching on.
But the team lost contact
with the spacecraft

in the last moments before
the planned touchdown--

apparently, engine problems.
And then the descent became
uncontrollable, and it crashed.

In a moment of classic
understatement, one

of the project
managers saying, I'm

sorry to say that our
spacecraft did not make

it in one piece to the moon.
If they had, Israel would have
been just the fourth country

to soft land on the moon
after the old Soviet

Union, the US, and China.
Still, though, a
major achievement

for an upstart group that
began eight years ago as part

of a Google competition.
They didn't make the deadline
for that competition,

but decided to keep going
with private funding

and a lot of good old chutzpah.
And they came oh so
close to success.

Still became only the seventh
country to get to the moon,

if not to successfully
land on it.

A lot of pride in
Israel in this project.

Plenty of people watching
live, including schoolkids

at the president's home.
And those behind the
project not letting the less

than soft landing put them off.
For its part, SpaceIL says,
quote, "Don't stop believing.

We will continue to work hard."
And then the prime minister,
Netanyahu, saying, quote,

we will try again.
Next time it will be better.
A sign perhaps of government
involvement going forward--

quote, "I'm seriously
considering investing

now in the space program."
Michael Holmes, CNN, Jerusalem.
CARL AZUZ: Space investors
from around the world

will probably have a
new option for getting

their satellites into orbit.
It's called Stratolaunch,
and it's considered

to be a mega-jet--
six engines, two
cockpits, though only

one is used to fly it.
Its wingspan is
385 feet, which is

wider than an American
football field is long.

This plane is longer, wider, and
heavier than the H-4 Hercules,

also known as The Spruce Goose.
And the Stratolaunch made
history Saturday morning

when it lifted off
the ground, got up

to speeds of 173 miles
per hour, and climbed

15,000 feet into the sky.
But you and I aren't going
to fly it as passengers.

This thing's designed to carry
rockets loaded with satellites

so they can be launched from
an altitude of 35,000 feet

into orbit.
That can save money over
ground-based launches.

Stratolaunch was funded by
Microsoft co-founder Paul

Allen, who died last October.
It does have competition
from other companies.

And it has a series of test
flights and certifications

to go through before it
can actually start working.

There are an
estimated 1.3 million

people in America
who are classified

as unaccompanied youths.
One of them lost his
mother when he was 12.

His father was
incarcerated when he was 13

and he didn't have
anywhere to live.

That's a problem
that Vicki Sokolik

has been working to
solve since 2007,

when she founded
Starting Right, Now.

It's an organization
that's helped more than 200

young people in Tampa, Florida.
VICKI SOKOLIK: A homeless
unaccompanied youth

is about 15 to 19 years old
who is not with their parent

or guardian, and not
eligible for foster care,

because they weren't
taken from their home,

but rather, they made
the decision to leave

their dangerous situation.
Most people don't even
know these kids exist.

There's a lot of shame
that goes with being

a homeless unaccompanied youth.
They hide what's actually
going on with them.

And so they really become this
very invisible population.

Hello, hello, hello.
We have helped 200
unaccompanied homeless youth.

Our kids were just
dealt bad hands.

And we help them
reshuffle their deck.

Do you want a biscotti?
No?
Just banana bread?
- Yeah.
VICKI SOKOLIK: We offer
safe and stable housing,

academic support, a reliable
mentor in their life,

and all with the goal of
getting each student to reach

their own full potential.
We went to great
lengths at both houses

to make them really
feel like homes.

A lot of times,
it's the first time

that they actually have a bed
that they can call their own.

We look at every single student
as an individual person.

If a student needs
extreme academic support,

that's what we're
going to focus on.

If a student needs
extreme therapy,

that's what we're
going to focus on.

And then we help them
plan their future.

OK, so you're still
planning on going to SBC.

- Yes.
VICKI SOKOLIK: 97% of our
kids graduate high school

and go on to their next goal.
The transformation of
these kids is monumental.

They come in so broken.
They cannot trust.
And I'm just one person telling
them I'm going to help them.

- (SINGING) [INAUDIBLE]
VICKI SOKOLIK:
They become softer.

It's just great that
they can be happy

and that they're able
to be kids again.

These are kids who have
been told they don't matter.

And their voice does matter.
CARL AZUZ: Airports and
waterfalls seem like two things

that don't really go together.
But they do at Singapore's
Changi Airport.

In its new $1.3 billion
shopping complex,

Changi has added
an indoor forest,

complete with an
indoor waterfall.

It's more than 130 feet
high, making it the tallest

indoor waterfall on the planet.
And what better place to put
it than the airport that's been

ranked the best in the world?
Who needs a runway when
you can have a spillway?

Who needs a layover when
you can have a spray-over?

In the concourse of travel,
when people get hangered up

by delays that
seem interminable,

it's great to have a tower of
water if the tower of control

gets backed up.
Maybe Changi will become
a destination of its own

for some folks who just
don't want a departure.
