"Rises over the desert, waking Jessica from her seat on the airplane. She can feel the sun on her cheeks, and for the first time, it doesn't feel painful. She hopes it's the beginning of her new life. On her way out of the plane on the tarmac in Djibouti, she thanks every one of the soldiers on board, one by one. As she walks down the metal steps, she's immediately hit with a rush of hot air. The heat reminds her that she's still in northeastern Africa. One of the soldiers gently points Jessica in the direction of uniformed men, waiting near a white van alongside the plane. She's met by a psychiatrist from the Department of Defense. He introduces himself as doctor ray. He tells her he will be there to support her as she goes through the FBI process. They have a lot of questions. He leads her into the van, which is blasting air conditioning. Jessica runs her hands over the vents. It feels so good. Doctor ray is kind, reassuring. My job is to make sure that your mental health is cared for, he says. To make sure you're okay. But Jessica has just one thing on her mind. When can I see my husband? Soon, he tells her. This is a process Jessica, you need to be patient. We've worked with hostages who have been in your situation before. It can be overwhelming for you and Eric after all you've been through. We have developed a protocol for reuniting people with their loved ones. It's totally voluntary, but I highly suggest it. Jessica considers they are the experts. Okay. She says, but can I talk to him? We find it's best to start with a phone call and keep it short. 5 minutes. But first, I bet you could use a shower. A nurse leads Jessica to a shower room in the back of the building. She tells her she'll be outside if she needs anything. It's the first time she's been alone since the rescue. Her feet are dirty, her skin is coarse from the sun. She steps into the shower and turns on the hot stream of water. She washes away the layers of grime that have covered her skin for months. There's so much dirt. It takes four or 5 scrubs to feel clean. When she's finished, she looks in the mirror. It's the first time she's seen herself in three months. She's shocked at how thin she is. A 119 pounds on her 5 foot 11 frame. She looks skeletal. Her body looks almost childlike, except for the color of her skin. It's gray. She quickly looks away and grabs the clean clothes of the aid left for her. They're baggy and hang off her frame. But their real clothes meant for her, and they're clean. In the hallway, she meets up with Paul. He's clean, too. They hug each other tightly, and then the aids lead each of them to the phone, so they can call their families. Inside the small office, Jessica dials Eric's number. But the call doesn't go through. She tries again. Still, nothing. The agent tells her the network might be down. It's been happening all day. We can try again later. Is there anyone else you'd like to call? The agent doesn't need to ask twice. Jessica's father John picks up on the first ring. Yes. Daddy? John can barely get out his words. It's so good to hear your voice. Jessica hears the phone being passed to her sister, then her brother. The love pours in through the line. And then the 5 minutes is up. It's over. She sits alone in silence, trying to take it all in. Another agent pokes in his head. Jessica, I have your husband on the line. He hands Jessica the phone. She takes a breath. Eric? Jess? Are you okay? At the sound of his voice, every emotion Jessica fell since the day she was kidnapped, comes rising to the top. Emotions, she wasn't allowed to feel. Fear, frustration, anger. But mostly love. She starts to cry. She can hear Eric crying too. The.

"13. It is Alabama's Morning news. I'm changing and joining us now. Michael Bauer, our correspondent. Have you been watching the skies? Michael there in Austin, Texas, You see anything strange or weird coming through the air. I haven't yet, but I fully expect that we're going to see something happening here, possibly by tomorrow late tomorrow night. That's the prediction coming in regards to this 21 ton Chinese rocket that is out of control right now. They have no control over it. China has no control over it is literally orbiting the Earth 15 times a day Right now. That's because J T is traveling at 18,000 MPH right now. That's the big reason why we don't know when it's going to break through the Earth's atmosphere where it's going to land or where the debris will land because at 18,000 miles an hour, any kind of change or sudden change within a minute ship Could shift the debris by hundreds or thousands of miles. So we won't know until literally about an hour, Maybe maybe a little bit more than that before re entry that the predictions will become a little bit more precise on where things the last, but we've got a massive window here. They're telling us that it's gonna happen over the weekend there telling us that between 41.5 degrees north latitude and 41.5 degrees South latitude is where you're likely to see that happen, meaning that places like Chicago, which is located a fraction of a degree farther north might be safe. But cities like New York could be hit by debris going all the way down into places like Jacksonville and perhaps even Gainesville. So that whole stretch two thirds of the East Coast Panama City, baby Well gets hit by something. Yeah. We were talking, John Ah, producer who's smarter than I am about these types of things was saying that because of the Earth's atmosphere and the moon, not having an atmosphere that's why you see all these craters on the moon because It won't burn up Meteors flying through space. But here in this world that we live in the atmosphere will most likely Burn. You know these types of things up, right? So what's the anticipation of actually something massive, really coming in here and doing any damage. That's that's a good point. We don't know. We know that this isn't least according to what scientists are saying. It's one of the 10 largest objects to ever re enter Earth's atmosphere, so we don't know what that's gonna look like. When it does break up on some level. Scientists say that it's unlikely that this booster will actually hit someone right there, saying that there's a 70% chance. Agree will fall into an ocean. But that's not to say that there isn't any risk for humans. The last time this happened about a year ago, same kind of rocket Chinese long March five be rocket it came back into atmosphere re enter the atmosphere and debris reportedly landed on buildings in two villages on the Ivory Coast. So there's still that kind of a chance here that you might see something like that happen, especially with something of this size again. I don't think it's going to be all coming in holy in one piece, and then crashing into a building someplace. But the reality is there could be debris spread over some length of space and our time like where there's prediction that the most accurate prediction we've seen so far in regards to the set. 11 43 Saturday night 11:43 P.m. Eastern Saturday night. If that's accurate, they're saying debris could shower down over northeastern Africa or Sudan. There, and with that, you're looking at that 18,000 mile an hour. There's a shift in that whole thing. Ships often we won't know till about an hour before him. Wow. You know I can't help but think you know the people with coronavirus in that lab in Wuhan as they released some kind of on accident or on purpose virus and we all have to deal with it worldwide. Somebody there at the Chinese space program said Oh, really will hold my beer. And and here we go, you know. This is something that this is something I give you a well sweetened taste of irony that may happen here as well. But this is something China's done for a while right there. Just there. Unlike us, where we're trying to find out technology like hell on must where you can launch a rocket into space and then have it land on a small pad in the water someplace, Because that's American ingenuity. They have not caught up to that in China. They're not stolen enough information. JT Be able to get to that. So they just go once the rockets up there and does job. Forget it. We're washing our hands of it. So we've seen these kinds of problems, but one of the realities is in between that 41.5 degrees north latitude and south latitude. Balls. Beijing, China So it could very well be that they end up getting the rocket that they set up the space like karma's A. You know what? Right, So Yeah. Okay. Well, Michael, have a great weekend. Thank you for the update. And this if we don't get hit by Sunday night, Mother's Day night, we won't get it right. It's all over. Right? Yeah, exactly think that it's all over by that boy. Very good. Have a good weekend, buddy. We'll talk next week. It's 7 18. Alabama's morning news Mother's Day weekend is gonna be absolutely gorgeous, and there's a lot to do this weekend. Her mom.

"Do we have any idea where this thing is gonna fall? Not yet. There's probabilities out there, Ryan. So if you like, you know, if you're if you're cool with that, you probably won't get audited by the I R s or she's probably not pregnant, then feeling comfortable about this will probably land in the water is making you feel good right about now. But for that point, we've seen a rocket just like this were similar to this anyway. That was last lots of blues back in 2018, where it re entered the atmosphere. And then you had debris reportedly landing on buildings on two villages on the ivory Coast. So while the heads up here is look, we've got a 21 ton rocket. That is traveling at 18,000 MPH. Right now it's orbiting the Earth 15 times a day, and it's set to plunge back into the planet here. We think, sometime in the next 24 to 48 hours, but we don't know where it's going to land. What that debris will look like. That's where we seem to be a safari as what scientists. Predictions are. Why, well because of 18,000 miles an hour, any kind of a shift by a minute or two could mean thousands of miles. In a difference of where the impact could be right now, what they're predicting is they're saying between 41.5 degrees north latitude and 41.5 degrees south latitude that seems to be the frame that they're looking at for the impact to happen, which means Chicago, which is located a fraction of a degree farther north is Probably safe, but major cities like New York could be hit by debris. So the prediction that came down from the aerospace corporation showed a Nim packed Saturday night 11:43 P.m. Eastern. That's what the plan is, At least this point. If that's accurate, the debris looked like it would be showering down over northeastern Africa over the Sudan but again Because this thing is traveling at 18,000 Miles an hour, right? If there's a shift and change of minutes, that could be a shift in change of hundreds or thousands of miles, so we won't know for sure until literally hours or an hour before reentry what the predictions are going to look like now, and scientists are predicting that there's about a 70% chance The debris will fall into an ocean because, you know, it's what we're covered by here on Earth, so there's a chance that that will happen here but again. It doesn't mean that there's not a chance that some group of people or land will be hit. They're just saying the odds of you getting hit by this rocket are pretty slim right now. Although maybe Saturday night if you go outside, take a quick look up, man. Yeah. You know, just Take a quick scan of the sky and make sure nothing's heading your way. I mean, hurt, right? Good. It's amazing. I go back to the fact that we fire rockets here in this country and we can land parts of them. We can reuse parts of American land parts of them back down on a specific pad, right and the Chinese. They have no idea where their rocket parts are gonna end up. Once they come back, they're seemingly feel like once it's out in space. It's everybody's Game and, you know, once it's up there, we've already done our job. We don't need to get this thing back. But in the meantime, this could actually technically and what might be a very nice and cruel twist of fate. This could end up hitting Beijing, depending on exactly what the trajectory ends up being and we do know the Pentagon is tracking it. We don't number of different ways that you could go to. There's a website out there right now, that is allowing you to track this and you can follow along with it as well. Space hyphen tracked out or you can kind of follow where this is. But the reality is is that our military are following. They have no plans to shoot it down. We couldn't reach Bruce Willis to see if we could send them up there and explode the thing before we got here, so we're still going to just kind of play this game. Wait and see what happens on this could be an impact that happened Saturday night or may happen on Mother's Day, depending on what goes down, but it is largely believe that this weekend that's when this rocket and thus the debris will come into orbit. Well, that'll ruin your mother's day. You're getting together and having a nice little gathering and all of a sudden you got space debris coming down in your house. W ire, The senior national correspondent Michael Bauer, He can follow on Twitter at the Bower shell. Michael, Thanks for the time this morning. Have a great weekend. Stay safe, right? You know many I definitely think that China is our top geopolitical adversary. But between Corona virus vaccine that created that doesn't work and the fact that they have no idea where their space junk is going. I don't know I'm feeling pretty good about where we stand compared to China at the moment, also wondering how they got to this point. Everything they're doing lately is a failure. It's a really is amazing, So I mean, they should be embarrassed, But honestly, we should be taunting them with this nonsense. You know, we should be putting out videos of us landing parts of our rockets. But I mean, that is just so incredible to me that we can do that that we can land parts back on a pad on a landing pad their space junk. I mean, we have no idea right now back. It's gonna go. I remember growing up that this was a thing back then. Back in the eighties and nineties. I remember we had two or three of these instances were something was gonna not a media or anything like that.

Africa Splitting in Half
"Learned his kids that earth has seven continents. But in the future that may no longer be the case Africa is on track to split into two continents. In March two thousand eighteen you might have seen photos of a huge crack cutting straight into Kenya. Splitting the Nairobi Narok highway. The crack was fifty feet deep and more than fifty feet wide. And that story renewed some conversation about how the continent of Africa is splitting into two in northeastern Africa, the continent is slowly cracking, and eventually it'll become two separate landmasses don't panic if you're living right on the line where it's going to split though. Scientists have known for quite a while. That Africa's splitting thanks to tectonic plates. Those please make up the earth's crust and upper mantle and these slowly glide around sometimes they bump into each other and other times they stretch apart until they tear. That's overseeing here this process could be the underlying reason for that crack in Kenya. But it's probably the heavy rainfall on that weakens crust that caused what happened last March not necessarily full-fledged played separation. One more thing you don't have to run out and buy new map. Just yet the plates are only moving if you millimeters per year. So it'll take about fifty million more years for the continent's to completely break off that gives you several million years to visit. And in the meantime, scientists will get a pretty fascinating look at the different stages of riffing in real time
