Oh, and perhaps this thread too...

But that's fine. The more people see it, the better. As far as I'm concerned, cross-post this all over the place and let the mods clean it up later. [lol]

First came upon this forum when one of your organizers(?) appeared on the Daily Show with Jon Stewart. Anyway, I capped the latest 60 Minutes and saw it had a segment that would be of interest on this forum. You will need a bittorrent client to download the program. I have limited bandwidth so it might be a bit slow at the start :)

60 Minutes - 2006.01.01 (TVRip.SoS)

"For this Sunday's New Year's edition of 60 Minutes we'll bring you three stories of beginning anew. With innovation and technology, the future is now.

1. A plan to build the world’s first airport for launching commercial spacecraft in New Mexico is the latest development in the new space race, a race among private companies and billionaire entrepreneurs to carry paying passengers into space and to kick-start a new industry, astro tourism. The man who is leading the race may not be familiar to you, but to astronauts, pilots, and aeronautical engineers – basically to anyone who knows anything about aircraft design – Burt Rutan is a legend, an aeronautical engineer whose latest aircraft is the world’s first private spaceship. As he told 60 Minutes correspondent Ed Bradley when he first met him a little over a year ago, if his idea flies, someday space travel may be cheap enough and safe enough for ordinary people to go where only astronauts have gone before.

2. Correspondent Dan Rather asks the question, "What do you do if you’re a former president?" For former President Bill Clinton, the answer is fighting the AIDS epidemic, an issue he admits he could have done more for while in office. Rather travels to China to get a firsthand look at Clinton’s new project. He talks to Clinton about his efforts to stop the pandemic, his relationship with the Bushes, and Hillary's political future.

3. How’s this for an offer you can’t refuse: how would you like to live say, 400 or 500 years, or even more and all of them in perfect health? It’s both a Utopian and a nightmare scenario but there are those who say it is well within the realm of possibility. Though we live longer and healthier lives than our grandparents, 100 is more or less the outer limit because, catastrophic disease aside, we just plain wear out. But 60 Minutes correspondent Morley Safer talked to one scientist who says that’s old-fashioned thinking, that sometime in the next 20 to 30 years or so we’ll be able to recondition ourselves for the first steps towards immortality.

4. A Day In The Life Of Andy. Making decisions is a problem we all face but Andy Rooney seems to have figured out a way to tackle it while coasting through his day."

runtime = 44mins
