SpaceX capsule returns to Earth with cargo May 30, 2012
We know it's hard to find good help, but if you're patient sometimes the help will find you.
A study in contrasts: New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg has proposed a ban on the sale of large servings of sugary soft drinks, limiting sodas and other sweet refreshments sold at restaurants, theaters and stadiums to 16 ounces. Meanwhile, a church pastor died after he was bitten by a rattlesnake in West Virginia, where it remains legal to handle snakes during church services.
Somewhere there's a happy medium, perhaps Maryland, where it's legal to handle snakes under 16 ounces.
Enter the Dragon and tidy up a bit: SpaceX's Dragon capsule splashed down into the Pacific, capping a successful journey to the International Space Station, the first ever by a commercial space operation.
The only hitch? When the recovery crew opened the capsule, they found an Ohio cleaning woman had been by to straighten up and had left a bill for $75,000.
