The image was taken from a distance of 120 km and the image resolution is 2.2 meters per pixel. A mission to land the first space probe on a comet reaches a major milestone when the unmanned Rosetta spacecraft finally catches up with its quarry on Wednesday. It's a hotly anticipated rendezvous: Rosetta flew into space more than a decade ago and had to perform a series of complex maneuvers to gain enough speed to chase down the comet on its orbit around the sun.

----- DARMSTADT, Germany (AP) — Turning what seemed like a science fiction tale into reality, an unmanned probe swung alongside a comet on Wednesday after a 4-billion mile (6.4-billion kilometer) chase through outer space over th

(CNN) -- Health officials in Nigeria and Saudi Arabia on Wednesday reported deaths of citizens they suspect were infected with Ebola, and Spain said it will accept a patient from the West African outbreak, adding to concerns about the spread of the deadly virus.

Nigeria reported that a nurse died after treating someone believed to have contracted Ebola in Liberia, and Saudi Arabia reported that a man died, apparently of the virus, after a trip to Sierra Leone.

The World Health Organization did not immediately confirm the deaths.

A Spanish priest who contracted the disease in Liberia will be flown to Madrid and become the Europe's first patient from

The youth of today! They're pretty great for animals, if what just happened in Illinois is any indication.

Three third-graders from the Chicago suburbs were the force behind a new law that increases penalties for animal abuse.

The Chicago Tribune reports that Brooke Martin, Claire Hackmann and Maddie O'Dell became animal welfare activists after reading a book about two kids who rescued a puppy from a puppy mill.

The three almost immediately got political: they contacted their state representative, gave a school presentation, collected signatures from other students and community members, then -- as could happen with any bunch of grade-schoolers, really -- testified before the Illino

After a 10-year chase taking it billions of miles across the solar system, the Rosetta spacecraft is homing in on its close encounter with a comet.

Blurry pictures of the oddly-shaped rock have already been returned but on Wednesday scientists at the European Space Agency, which is leading the project, say they hope to see images from within about 75 miles as the probe carries out the last of its braking maneuvers.

If successful, the mission will notch up a series of firsts. Rosetta will be the first spacecraft to orbit a comet on its journey around the sun, and in November mission controllers aim to place the robotic lander Philae on the surface -- something that has never been done b

Growing up as a celebrity child is often both very glamorous and difficult. After all, these kids get whatever they want, yet at the same time they are hounded by the paparazzi 24/7. And while many of them are wee-little when we first meet them through the camera, as they age, there’s one thing that usually determines whether or not the paparazzi will continue to follow them around or leave them alone–the determining factor is whether or not they get H-O-T-T hott. Let’s take a quick look at several child celebs who turned out to be very pleasing on the eye.

The city of Seattle might start fining residents who put food waste in the garbage instead of the compost bin — the latest idea to push for better recycling rates.

Dozens of cities nationwide now give residents the option of putting their household food scraps in a curbside compost bin. Seattle is looking at making it a requirement.

The city is nearly 4 percent away from its goal of recycling 60 percent of its garbage by 2015 and the clock is ticking. So, city staff and Mayor Ed Murray are recommending new rules to close the gap, including enforcement of mandatory residential curbside composting.

Under Seattle’s current curbside composting program, residents can put food scraps and

A 10-year-old boy was pronounced dead on the scene, and his 7-year-old brother and 15-year-old sister were later pronounced dead at the hospital, said Lt.
