    Washington Week [#5713] The Trump administration's disaster response is just one setback for the president this week. Several cabinet members are under fire for spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on chartered planes. And in the GOP Senate runoff in Alabama, Mr. Trump and Republican leadership's chosen candidate was defeated by Roy Moore, the controversial former chief judge of the state's Supreme Court.
    Turning the page from the scrapped efforts to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, President Trump rolled out the Republican plan for tax reform. The tax framework leaves a lot of details left to be worked out later, but it would reduce the number of tax brackets to three with the rate for high-income earners dropping nearly five percent. It would also raise the level for the standard deduction and child tax credit while repealing the alternative minimum tax and estate tax. Democrats immediately slammed the proposal as looking out for wealthy Americans.
    Robert Costa will discuss the week with:
    Jeff Zeleny of CNN
    Susan Davis of NPR
    Yamiche Alcindor of The New York Times
    Michael Scherer of The Washington Post
    Plus, on the Washington Week Extra: President Trump's week-long criticism of players who kneel in protest during the national anthem at NFL games has had Americans debating race and justice, protest and patriotism, and the limits of free speech. Our panel will discuss the ongoing controversy and share some of the comments posted by Washington Week viewers on Facebook.

    Ready Jet Go! [#130H] Total Eclipse of the Sunspot/Sean's Year In Space "Total Eclipse of the Sunspot" - While Mindy, Jet, Sean, and Sydney are trying to use a solar panel to improve their energy efficiency, they notice that Sunspot is acting strange. It turns out that Sunspot was aware of an impending eclipse and was trying to alert the kids to the fact that the Sun would be darkened for a while. Curriculum: A solar eclipse is a type of eclipse that occurs when the Moon passes between the Sun and Earth, and the Moon fully or partially blocks the Sun. In a total eclipse, the disk of the Sun is fully obscured by the Moon. It's important not to look directly at the Sun during an eclipse, but you can watch it through the use of a box viewer. "Sean's Year in Space" - Sean is excited by NASA's "Year in Space" program on the ISS, and decides to try to live for a year in the tree house without ever coming down.

At this point, astronauts are even staying for a year at a time to study what happens to humans who live in micro-gravity for extended periods, so we can learn what will happen to us on long space voyages, like a trip to Mars. duration 28:46   SRND51 TVY (Secondary audio: DVI)
