luis aza, the leader who told them they should conserve the two days of food that they have and ration it to being two spoon fulls of food per man, peaches and tuna. that kept them alive. they made contact with the surface. a team of american drillers came in. they made it down to the men. the fenix capsule was tested, retested and, wow, it worked. in the end, the ride up was taking less than ten minutes. now, this country celebrates because the impossible is possible. lynn? >> kerry sanders, thank you. back here in the states, is the senate battle in the states took center stage. christine o'donnell faced off with democrat, chris kunes.

sharron angle and harry reid. democrats plan to sink $2 million into ads supporting reed. sarah palin will be coming in on sharron angle's behalf. last night on "the last word" with lawrence o'donnell, he got a chance to talk with chris coons. he was asked how he felt after sparring with his opponent, christine o'donnell, some of which got some laughs. >> we spent an awful lot of time dealing with the distraction of issues that my opponent -- things she said years ago on late night tv, things that keep coming back to haunt her, frankly and i think dogged her in the course of the debate. what i hear up and down the state of delaware, is folks that are interested really in the issues of how we tackle the deficit in debt, how we create jobs and make america
competitive and wolf blitzer did a terrific job in holding my opponent accountable for her actions and statements and a lot of things she has done as a candidate as well as as a tv pundit. it was great to have a chance to debate her less than three weeks from the general elections. we have tdhad a number of other debates she hasn't attended. a lot of folks have been eager to get a chance to ask her questions and hear her views. she likes to claim she has matured in her faith and policy views. one of the challenges we face is understanding where she does stand today. >> you don't want to miss lawrence o'donnell's last word on the biggest issues and most compelling stories of the day. it airs at 10:00 p.m. eastern time only on msnbc, the place for politics. >> here is the first look at some of the other news going around america today. in kentucky, cleanup crews were called to the skin of the accident that's sure to leave a
