There is a new epidemic in America: babies born addicted to the prescription painkillers their mothers abuse while pregnant.

In northern Chile, at 16,500 feet above sea level, scientists from around the world are building the world's largest radio telescope. When completed in 2013, sixty-six huge antennas--some weighing 115 tons--will stretch across a 10 square mile area of desert, point at the stars and try to unlock the secrets of the universe. The research there has already started; Harry Smith takes a rare trip to this remarkable and unearthly place.
High volume grunts, screams and shrieks during a tennis match have become part of the game. But now, the Women’s Tennis Association (WTA) is trying to do something about the excessive noise. Does this say anything about our culture? Brian Williams offers his voice.
It takes a year to plan and it’s over in 30 minutes. “Rock Center” goes behind the scenes with Gary Souza, the master mind behind the Macys 4thof July firework extravaganza.
