It’s OK to stare at the sun — when this happens!

If you look at the upper right portion of this image of the sun, you can see the International Space Station (ISS) in silhouette. NASA's Space Shuttle Discovery was docked to the ISS when this image was taken on March 1, 2010. BTW, it's NEVER okay to stare directly at...

Happy Days actress Erin Moran dies at 56

You are my forever

At some point, while submariner Mikhail Averin waited at the bottom of the Bering Sea to be rescued, he wrote this short letter to his wife. No one has forever... But I wanted more. I wanted to give you more...more babies. Love our son and the baby for both of us....
