Episode Summary

March 18, 2012 - SpaceX, Face Blindness

Scott Pelley profiles Elon Musk, the first private citizen to launch a space vehicle into orbit and recover it. He is the founder of SpaceX and hopes to become the first private venture to put a person into orbit.
In a double-length segment, Lesley Stahl reports on Face Blindness, known medically as Prosopagnosia. It is a condition that keeps people from remembering faces, even those of family members. Some studies estimate that as many as one in 50 people may be afflicted with Prosopagnosia. Lesley also interviews 'super recognizers,' people who never forget a face, no matter how long ago they saw it.
