1:02 pm
fast of the malfunctioning appointment but they decided to wait a day because there's only a small window of opportunity for them to make their correct landing spot they decided to take that extra precaution and so today at six o two in the morning they got back into the capsules they released from the international space station successfully at eight thirty in the morning they launched a deorbit burn to send their engines a back into the earth's atmosphere then there was a tense of five minutes between nine o two and nine o seven where there was no communication whatsoever with the capsule as they were entering your satisfy your and the parachute deployed and they landed safely back on the ground at around nine twenty one local time in kazakhstan at this point they are now back at star city they are back in the moscow region and they are in fact getting their medical checkups right now as i said it looks like after six months of flying so everything is a ok the next crew which is it t.m.a. zero one am they left today from the star city to go down to baikonur to start their training for the next flight and in fact what's really unique about this

1:05 pm
brought to the brink of collapse in spring by sweeping debt and overspending was a multi million multi-billion euro bailout but many critics believe this is just the beginning of the end for the single currency. and we had a room full of six hundred fifty people listening to around about fifteen speakers ranging from economists to some of the foremost currency experts in germany and also former european central bankers and they've been saying essentially that maybe not today maybe not tomorrow but sometime in the not too distant future the euro is going to collapse and they've been arguing that it's a fundamentally flawed concept in the first place that ever since its introduction it's been in inherently a wrong thing to do also officially bringing together sixteen economies nearly seventeen when i joined in january that inherently have nothing in common at the end of the day there's going to be. what they're calling an action plan is going to be four points and one of them is going to encourage people to call for

a referendum in germany on the euro asking people whether they really want to or still be enforced and the aim of these people here today through that referendum will be to bring the torch more back to germany now i am joined very kindly by michael ross who is a stock market guru and he's also the editor in chief of and you news michael thanks very much for talking to us now tell me will you be backing this referendum that's being proposed if there is a referendum of course we will be backing it but on the other hand i have big doubts that. take place because all those questions are. political we don't have from. the scene is. people just don't talk about it. here and the western media is for example covering this event to.
1:07 pm
be christian if such could be. in the future because the political. people. able for example to vote about their own currency which is a basic democratic seen in my opinion we were not asked if you want to have it all so many other people of the european community will not and if you want them they would say no we don't like it for example we had a recent poll here in germany fifty percent of all germans didn't want the euro still don't want it at the moment and even sixty percent of the french people don't like it so why do we have it it's only thing of a political bureaucracies in brussels to behave more like the taters in my opinion you know we didn't elect them but they turned us what to do and in fact that's one
1:08 pm
of the things that you and other people in the room is saying is that the euro is a tool for undermining democracy yes of course it's to do so very much it is the basic tool for brussels to dictate into the government how much is this conversation about guessing which of the euro pie in the sky if you like do you think it would be a hugely destabilizing thing now that the euro is in place to dismantle the u.s. and in this way some economists say that it will be almost the same as the effect that the collapse of lehman brothers hatched this is of course the other side of the calling the longer we have it the more difficult it will be to get rid of it and of course there will be thousands or millions of problems but it doesn't mean that we didn't have to start no because the longer we wait the more problems we have. get and the higher we will fall down i mean. saying in germany if you're moving the wrong direction there is no sense in excel or to the extent of the velocity you know that eve did even makes it more hard for us all at year.
