12:32 am
public starting next week, but some health experts, including a few from the fda, are pushing back against this plan they argue boosters aren't really needed for most people. some americans are not waiting recent polls show anywhere from 4 to 16% of vaccinated americans say they've already gotten a booster. it's worth noting third doses have been approved already for people with compromised immune systems. cnbc's meg tirrell covers science and medicine for us. i'm told this meeting could be a tense one. >> reporter: shep, it absolutely could be the discussion the fda advisers are having tomorrow centers dof pfizer's vaccine is safe around whether a third dose of pfizer's vaccine is safe and effective against covid. but there's a whole lot more brewing there, including the broader question of whether booster shots are needed in general. we know that both regulators within the fda as well a

outside advisers don't believe they are that question comes down to whether protection from the vaccine wanes over time over things like hospitalization. in documents released ahead of this meeting shots, quote, still afford protection against severe covid-19 disease and death in the united states. tension now, adding to potential tension tomorrow is that two key vaccine regulators have announced their planned retirements from the fda this fall. at least in part, sources say, because of frustration over how the question of boosters has been handled they also co-authored a letter in "the lancet" this week, saying booster shots are not yet needed we'll see this all play out over the course of this public meeting tomorrow then the outside experts vote at the end of the day that vote is just a recommendation the fda itself decides and next week, a cdc advisory committee will meet to make recommendations on how the boosters should be used. now remember, right now, this is just for the pfizer vaccine. the others will come later shep >> meg, we know some people already got boosters how many, overall, are expected to get them if approved?

woman, lisa biatin, as their new play-by-play announcer she is now the first woman to hold that position full time for any major men's professional sports team. no stranger to groundbreaking roles either in march she became the first woman to call games for the ncaa men's basketball tournament. she was also behind the mic for soccer games at the tokyo olympics for nbc sports. in a statement byington said i applaud the bucs for taking the first steps toward making hires like this more of the norm in the nba, because it's timetime and th and the bucks president says while we appreciate the significance of selecting lisa, lisa earned this position based on her extraordinary skills and experience an update now on the first all-civilian crew to blast off into orbit without any astronauts on board. right now the spacex inspiration four is flying over the pacific ocean at more than 17,000 miles an hour. we're told the crew is, as they put it, healthy, happy and resting comfortably, after
12:45 am
traveling more than five times around the earth we also got the first video from the ship's observation dome. look at that you can see the crew has a pretty sweet view from more than 360 miles above our blue planet. last night the spacex rocket launched from kennedy space center in florida. it took off from the same launch pad as nasa's apolo moon missions jeff bezos and richard branson congratulating spacex for their historic achievement saying it is another great moment for space exploration. spacex senior adviser and professor at usc usc ga garret, virgin g garret, virgin galactic, blue origin and now spacex. >> shephard, this is what we've been waiting for. when we started the commercial crew and fora long time we've been waiting for blue origin,
12:46 am
for spacex, and this is the year >> can you give us insight on what the inspiration four crew is experiencing right now?e us what the inspiration four crew is experiencing right now? >> >> a lot of fun and a surreal moment for them. nothing is normal up there i remember the first night i spent in space i woke up in the middle of my sleep and i thought for sure i was standing on my head and i said why i am a upside down? because all the blood rushes up to your head when you're in space. there's no gravity to pull it back down. why am i sleeping on my head i looked out the window and saw the earth and said oh, that's right, i'm in space. they told me this was going to happen everything is weird up there and it's wonderful. >> garret, inspiration four scheduled to splash down off the coast of florida over the weekend. how hard will it be to get them back home safely >> it's just as hard to come back down as it is to go up. if you think about it from a physics perspective, you have to convert all that energy in that rocket fuel, that chemical
12:47 am
energy, you have to convert that into speed, into velocity to get into orbit now you're only halfway done you have to take all that energy you put in and take it all back up to end up sitting still in the middle of the ocean. coming home, entry is just as difficult from an engineering perspective, as launch is. >> i met these four a few months ago. they were over-the-moon excited thinking frankly i walked away from there thinking i wonder if it will live up to their expectations, because theirs were sky high. >> boy, i sure hope it does. i don't want any buyer's remorse. we want more people to buy tickets. i think they will not be disappointed by the views. they will not be disappointed by how fun it is to be in zero gravity. they might for the past 24 hours be a little disappointed because usually you don't feel great for the first day or so, but by the time now they're in day number two, i think they're probably getting over that and are probably starting to feel good
12:48 am
about themselves. >> garret reisman, great for you to be here thank you so much. >> my pleasure, shepard. >> for those of you who prefer gravity and wheels, the long wait is almost over.e long wait is almost over. new season of "jay leno's garage" less than a week the new season of "jay leno's garage" less than a week away. the legend himself joins us right now in that little garage. why jay says this season is more revved up than ever. just don't let this guy anywhere near anything in that garage a moose runs into traffic and charges into a car the damage estimate next

12:55 am
granted. cars go thro i don't know how many have actually caught fire when you look at how many gasoline car fires there have been, you sort of take it for granted. cars go through an intersection, hit and the cars explode and the fire department shows up i think it's less. the advantage, if there is one through an ev fire is it doesn't blow up. you're in it, smell something, there's smoke and then it catches -- it doesn't go off in a ball the way a gasoline car would. that's not to say it's not dangerous and, hopefully, they'll fix the problem. i mean, tesla sells over half a million cars a year. and they think there was two fires or something in that time. you don't really know the circumstances. so, you know, the last days of old technology are always better than the first days of new technology but we're beyond the first days of new technology. i mean, the electric car is here to stay. i predict a child born today will probably drive a gasoline powered car about as often as
