we're taking a live look at the strip... from our camera on the stratosphere. as you can see - there's plenty of holiday traffic - here in town to celebrate the new year. president obama may be no exception to making new year's resolutions. doug luzader takes a look at the president's plans... and how they could affect the nation in 2017. beyond working on his golf game... which appears much-improved in recent years -- president obama has a lengthy list of resolutions for 2016... and he will finish this vacation... and 2015... with just over one year to advance his vision for america. obama says: "we are going to squeeze every last ounce of progress that we can make when i
5:39 pm
as long as i have the privilege of holding this office." and the other big goal for 2016? helping to defeat whatever republican ends up winning the g-o-p nomination next year... <trump nats - he played more golf last year than tiger woods!> especially if it's donald trump, who appears to really get under the president's skin. obama says: "i think i will have a democratic successor and i will campaign very hard to make that happy for a whole variety of reasons." for starters, it would be essential to keeping much of the current adminstration's work intact in coming years. but therin lies the president's delicate balancing act over the next year... pushing agenda items that can be divisive... like gun control... a new transpacific trade deal... closing the prison at guantanamo bay... while at the same time not turning off potential democratic and independent voters come november. sabato says: "if he's serious about electing the dem nominee, he's going to have to find ways to be less
5:40 pm
to appeal to a broader section of the public, can he do it? i don't know." and no one really knows at this point.. but it's clear that as his vacation winds to a close this weekend, the president will be looking ahead to a new year that could well determine what his legacy will really be. in washington, doug luzader, fox news. the president is pressing ahead - with a set of executive actions on gun control next week. one of them would expand background- check requirements for those who purchase weapons from high-volume gun dealers. a luxury hotel in dubai... continuing to smolder throughout the day - after a massive fire on new year's eve. flames engulfed the 63-story hotel even as crowds gathered for the annual new year's eve fireworks display around a nearby skyscraper - the tallest in the world. small fires were still seen burning through some windows at the "address hotel" - sending smoke into the air today. fourteen minor injuries were reported during

the hotel. i saw some debris falling down from the building. i prayed, if this is my last chance, then so be it." authorities say they're still working to determine the cause of the fire. 2015 marked the hubble telescope's twenty-fifth year in space. as it continues to orbit around the earth... nasa is taking a look back at what they've learned from its trusted space telescope. as joel waldman reports - scientists credit hubble for giving the world a never before seen unobstructed view of the universe - and profoundly transforming their understanding of earth's place among the stars. nats (not on-cam) jeletic says: "it's truly the most productive scientific instrument that's ever been." since 19-90, the hubble telescope has been transmitting high quality images of deep space back to earth. carpenter says: "the idea for hubble actually originated
5:42 pm
professor wrote a paper on the advantages of what he called an extraterrestrial observatory - basically a telescope in orbit." every aspect of hubble's capabilities can be controlled from this state-of- the-art command post at nasa's goddard space flight center in greenbelt, maryland. dunham says: "each console is set up for a different subsystem.... each of them are responsible to make sure all of the data coming down in their area is within certain limits that we're not violating anything that's going to jeopardize the health or safety of hubble." the telescope was delivered into space by the now retired space shuttle discovery... with the original intention of beaming back images for only 15 years. but as the breakthroughs continued - so did nasa's interest in keeping the telescope going. that meant a major overhaul in 2009 to help fight the natural aging process. jeletic says: "with all the redundancy that we have, we're very hopeful that we can keep, get, and make hubble last until at least 2020 and beyond." waldman says (on- cam bridge): "but
5:43 pm
obama ended nasa's shuttle program in 2011, repairs would no longer be possible... meaning that it's now just a matter of time before hubble will go extinct." and even after 25 years in orbit - hubble's still making new discoveries... like this new star in the milky way galaxy that's been dubbed the light saber - after the jedi's weapon of choice in the movie franchise "star wars". carpenter says: "we have the star behind a dark cloud and we have two blades od very brilliant gas coming out of the two poles of the star and it looks like someone's got their hand on the hilt of a light saber." in washington, joel waldman, fox news. nasa has also released a photo from the hubble telescope - of a new galaxy forming. the space agency says this shows two galaxies merging into one - after colliding. scientists say the new galaxy will become stable. it's located about 230 million light
