is set to land on a moving comet. it is the first mission of its kind. charlie d'agata is at mission control in darmstadt, germany, where scientists are waiting to see if ten years of preparation will pay off. charlie, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. there was a huge cheer this morning here at mission control of the successful launch of the craft. but trouble too. overnight, we learned that the thrust system that they pinned down has failed. it does have another system to keep it from flying off. the decades-long dream of landing on a streaking comet came one step closer to reality today. one small step separating from the unmanned mother ship, one giant leap, a seven-hour drop to the comet below. this selfie with the comet was captured in october from 10 miles away. this image taken today is the first from the final stretch of its 4 billion mile journey. catching up to a comet traveling 84,000 miles an hour meant using
7:08 am
the gravity of the earth and mars as a sling shot, building up speed by swinging around both planets before swinging off toward its target. it finally caught up in the comet in august and began looking for a place to land its probe. this is exactly the size of the landing craft, and they're aiming for a flat, relatively smooth surface. when they caught up to the comet, they were expecting something about the shape of a potato it instead, they found this, which has been described as closer to awe rubber duck which makes it much more important to find the exact landing location. scientists say if that landing craft is even by even half an inch at launch it could veer several hundred yards off course and into an icy peak or crevice. although it's the european space agency that's making history nasa's director of planetary science jim green says some of nasa's equipment is on board for the ride. >> it's not them versus us in planetary science, it really isn't. >> is it not a rivalry? >> it's not. there's no rivalry like that
7:09 am
because we want to see their program succeed because when it does, we all gain from that. >> reporter: if successful, the probe will begin analyzing the stuff the comet's made of, shedding light on the formation of the solar system, the origin of water on earth. maybe even life itself. you can feel the tension here as miss mission control. there's no knowing if the ice is going to be too hard or too soft for the ice drills or the harpoons to take hold. >> charlie, thank you. president obama arrived in myanmar this morning after striking a major deal with china on climate change. the two countries vowed to cut greenhouse gases over the years. the goal is to set an example for other nations. major garrett is in beijing where the two leaders couldn't find common ground, though, on everything. major, good morning. >> good morning. president obama and chinese president
7:10 am

7:11 am
is broad enough to accommodate the development of both china and the united states. >> reporter: but the two leaders were starkly divided over the peaceful student protests in hong kong. an issue mr. obama raised directly with president xi. >> i described to him why it is so important for us to speak out for the freedoms that we believe are universal. right, we believe that are the birth right of all men and women, wherever they live whether it's new york paris or hong kong. >> reporter: for the first time xi publicly branded the protesters, organized under the name occupy central, as criminals. and told america to back off. >> translator: hong kong affairs are exclusively china's internal afirs and foreign countries should not interfere in those affairs in any form or fashion. >> reporter: xi was also asked about restrictive rules here regarding journalists.
7:12 am
xi, who is also head of the communist party, said the reporters are getting too much heat for reporting aggressively and said they need to change their behavior because he's not going to change his. >> draws a line, doesn't it? thank you, major. the former navy s.e.a.l. who claims he fired the shot that killed osama bin laden is releasing additional new details about that mission. robert o'neill said he thought they were going to die in that raid. bin laden was killed in his many could pound in pakistan three years ago. o'neil said the more s.e.a.l.s trained, the more they realized it was going to be a one-way mission. >> we're going to go and not come back. we're going to die when the house blows up, we're going to die when he blows up or we're going to be there too long and be arrested by pakistanis and we're going to spend the rest of our short lives in pakistan prison. >> o'neill said they were still eager for this mission. on friday we will hear from

7:14 am
>> reporter: governor jay nixon made it clear tuesday that he'll take any steps necessary to protect the people of missouri. >> when we make a determination, it's necessary to provide support and i'm prepared to issue that order. >> reporter: he hopes to avoid a repeat of the chaos that erupted in the days and weeks following michael brown's august 9th death. nixon also said multiple law agencyies will form a unified front to patrol the streets when the grand jury's decision is announced. one police agency not mentioned in the unified front, the ferguson police department. >> i don't want to speak to the future of the department. that will be dealt with by local officials. >> reporter: governor nixon said more than 1,000 officers have had extended crowd control training. police in ferguson drew criticism over the summer for their militarized approach. and for using tear gas and rubber bullets on the crowds. st. louis county police are prepared for more protests with around $100,000 worth of new riot gear.
7:15 am
>> we would prefer to just be as relaxed as often as we can. when you put riot gear and different things on like that, it agitates us, but frankly we haven't had anybody with the riot gear on yet. >> reporter: the governor and state agencies prepare for their response. community leaders last night met for a plan of their own. >> in spite of our differences from color creed or race we are united for peace and we're united for justice. >> several school districts have asked the prosecutor's office to make the grand jury announcement fall on a weekend when classes are not in session. meanwhile, the community is also waiting for the results of a civil rights investigation by the justice department. norah. >> thank you. a dallas hospital is paying for mistakes this morning in a handling of the first ebola case diagnosed in the united states. the family of thomas eric duncan says it has reached a settlement

7:34 am
for someone with swift's star power spotify says that could mean more than $6 million in royalties, adding artists make money off all of its 50 million plus listeners. not just the $12.5 million who paid for subscriptions. earlier this month after the company catalog. joshua bloomstream. >> it's difficult for spotify as well. right now it pays about 70% of the revenue it brings in out to artists, so we'd have to live on that other 30%. >> reporter: in the past swift's record label delayed released her new albums on spotify by several months so that her most devoted fans didn't feel ripped off. >> if this fan went and

7:36 am
>> isn't it like the radio? if you hear it on spotify, then you buy it. >> it doesn't happen that way. these days kids will looking to get it for free. other moments from this meeting are getting a lot of attention. seth doane is inthe changes and interactions can be well awkward. there are the planned photo opportunities and then there are those impromptu at times cringe worthy moments. the much anticipated handshake between china's president and japan's prime minister seemed to define uncomfortable. the countries have been at odds over territorial disputes and the handshake seemed as chilly

7:47 am
