Full Episode Summary

Morley Safer profiles Peter Thiel, a billionaire internet business pioneer who pays students with promising entrepreneurial ideas $100,000 to drop out of college. He sees the controversial program as a viable alternative to what, in his opinion, is a university system that is too expensive and not effective in preparing graduates for success.

Lara Logan reports on the Undiagnosed Diseases Program at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland, a final hope for patients with rare and undiagnosed medical conditions run by Dr. William Gahl's.

Steve Kroft profiles Roger Waters, the creative force behind Pink Floyd and writer of the rock opera The Wall which, at the age of 68, he is still performing around the world.
