a very warm welcome this is the line from moscow with me alice tippett to call spittles on to give us astronauts who safely landed back on earth. their stories spacecraft on from the international space station on its second attempt after a technical glitch on friday while our correspondent so we told them about the troll and joins us now live now you see pictures of the smiling faces of the crees so i guess that means that is a good sign everything i went to plan this time. well is that is certainly the case in fact of the faces of the smiling crew were welcomed by the family members who were here at mission control and it was very exciting and just a good vibration to have to watch their faces as they saw their loved ones exit the capsule everything went according to plan and today in fact around six
2:02 am
o two this morning with the capsule on dock from the international space station. crew. then basically started their descent to earth at eight thirty they made their deorbit burn which meant firing the engines that point of them down toward the earth which started their pretty tumultuous descent and what i mean by that is that around nine o'clock in the morning they entered the earth's atmosphere very fiery environment in fact no two we lost a signal which is expected it's called an l a west but there's a five minute period of time where you have no idea what is happening with the crew you can only guess that everything is normal based on their last communication before entering that that system and then around at nine o seven or they came back into the earth's atmosphere deploy their parachutes were spotted by the helicopters and everything was fine and we've been able to see them getting out of the capsules having their first bites traditionally they've had the bite of an apple as their first a sustenance back on land except one of them in fact. actually decided to eat
2:03 am
a cucumber instead but smiling faces the families happy and at this point in time we're awaiting them to get back to star city in moscow region at about seven hours time you talk about the celebrate to react with a mission. that must be a huge relief. that now safely back to find a docking. that's true in fact when the actual capsule landed there was a big round of applause here which you may have heard earlier but the reason for this is because there was some tense moments yesterday or were some tense moments yesterday in fact the capsule would not release from the international space station that was due to a malfunction in the latches and so what had to happen is the crew had to figure out a way and they found in the electrical drive past so that they could actually release the capsule they figured that out yesterday but decided to wait an extra day to make sure that they have the correct time in the trajectory because there's only
2:04 am
a certain window of an opportunity for them to be able to make that reentry and land in the correct position so they decided to take that second attempt today. and of course drives of this point i was generous words of. tracy caldwell dyson. just to me the story is a success. for many. they're coming to us from mission control. in spring indebted nations such as greece portugal and spain nearly trying to go into the abyss it was only a seven hundred fifty billion euro bailout package that maintain the shaky balance but many experts still believe what we've witnessed is the beginning of the end lore emmet now. in berlin this weekend a group of economists currency experts and former european central bankers are gathering to discuss the fate of the euro their view it won't survive it won't
2:05 am
collapse today it probably won't be tomorrow but one day in the not too distant future the sixteen country eurozone will fall apart according to those gathered in berlin this weekend and where better to hold a conference like this of all the economies in the eurozone germany has paid the heaviest price for the economic mismanagement of the countries that have come to be known as the pigs portugal italy ireland greece and spain forced to do some things to rescue those economies the e.u. and the i.m.f. set up a seven hundred fifty billion euro emergency fund one hundred ten billion euros have been lent to greece and there's some speculation in the press that the greeks are looking to delay repayment of that loan but the collapse of the euro looks less likely than it did three months ago in a corner means are doing much better than expected germany has fewer unemployed people and in the second quarter of this year it clocked up its best quarterly
2:06 am
growth rate for twenty years but nigel farage of the u.k. independence party says more rest is coming. situation in portugal is possibly worse than that in greece so i mean don't think that because we had a relatively quiet summer that these things have gone away plus between now and christmas the greeks have to roll over a huge amount of their own government debt this has not gone away the basic fundamental problem that these countries are not suited to being in the same monetary union hasn't gone away it will come back it'll be argued here this weekend that the whole idea of the euro is fundamentally flawed it's attempted to cobble together an economic union for political reasons the economies that unite defer in competitiveness have no shared labor markets and some haven't stuck to rules on fiscal policy that were agreed on entry to the eurozone therefore according to some economists it's impossible to have a common monetary policy but despite the last year's upset in the euro zone new and

presence in the united states is missed the united states has enough people to support it so it should have been on employment situation before. while many americans may view immigrants as taking jobs the reality is that indian and chinese immigrants created fifteen percent of the jobs in places of power like silicon valley but now that entrepreneurial spirit is being brought back to the place they started from the economy is definitely booming far more opportunities far more it is that they're going to work and the younger generation has a lot more things going on for them. this is good for them this is good for the country a country that gave them the wings to lead but ultimately the roots that drew them back preassure either our t. bangalore india. the united nations general assembly has seen and was between us and around with president without saying he believes about behind

a little while for barack obama to react to these comments when he did a deal later he said that their hateful many were thinking that maybe the uranium president towards sort of calmed down a little bit but he spoke later at a press conference where he stuck to his opinion take a listen. when i raised is a very clear discussion of the precise one an event occurred and under the pretext of that event two countries were invaded and up until now hundreds of thousands of people have been killed as a result don't you think that that excuse needs to be revised don't you feel that if a fact finding mission was present from the start to explore the true reason behind september eleventh that we would not see the good times trees in afghanistan and iraq why do you soon that all nations should accept what the u.s. government tells them. it was reiterated that what the international community wants is dialogue and even though dr dennis shot has been attacking the united states in several speeches made throughout this week the white house has also said that what it wants is dialogue to take place and the latest that we heard from the

materialist and if force is used against iran i believe this would be the shortest way to the ridiculous in the room. prevailing and deciding that no that we will strike we must have nuclear weapons so striking iran in my view would be the shortest way to reducing graham's going nuclear military and this is a position similar to what mahmoud ahmadinejad has been seeing he said that if the united states tries to attack its uranium enrichment facilities it can expect a war but the latest that we heard is that mahmoud ahmadinejad has promised that talks should come soon and hopefully some sort of cooperation with the international community is to follow. take a look at a few stories making news around the globe this hour to the terrorists level has been raised from moderate to substantial in the government believe the time from irish related terrorists is now a strong possibility the change follows that m i five warning that republican
