Commercial spaceflights: The next step for the U.S. space program?

Garrett Reisman, former NASA astronaut, flew on the space shuttle twice, performed spacewalks, and spent about three months living on the International Space Station.

He recently left NASA to take a job with the commercial firm Space X, which hopes to one day launch NASA astronauts and paying tourists to space on its Dragon capsule and Falcon 9 rocket.

Reisman joins Ali Velshi today on American Morning to talk about the future of the private and commercial space industry now that the shuttle era is coming to a close.
