Who Is Sheldon Adelson and Is He behind Gingrich's Rise? After Newt Gingrich 's big win in South Carolina , polls showed him neck and neck with Mitt Romney in Florida. Commentators agree that Romney was the aggressor in last night's debate and Gingrich almost passive compared to past performances. If Romney can win Florida, establishment Republicans will be very relieved. But Gingrich supporters will air a blitz of TV-commercials before Tuesday's primary. It's financed by Las Vegas casino magnate Sheldon Adelson , who's contributed $10 million to Gingrich's Super PAC. Has last night's debate role-reversal made a difference? Who is Sheldon Adelson, and is he making Republicans more hawkish in defense of Israel?

As Atlantis took to the skies at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida, NASA marked the "sentimental journey into history." What did shuttle accomplished in 30 years? Was it a scientific success or a magnificent failure? We talk to one of the first women to work at NASA, who hoped to set foot on another planet. Is America's dream of space exploration out of date? Is it time to transfer the energy, imagination and resources into the problems we face here on Earth?

House Republicans release their Obamacare replacement As two House committees take up "repeal and replacement" of "Obamacare," there may be life left in the Affordable Care Act after all. Even Republicans are divided, and proposed changes won't make good on President Trump's promise to provide "health insurance for everybody."
Nationalism's appeal on both sides of the Atlantic Nationalism, Populism, concerns about immigration and outright racism are part of election campaigns from the US to Europe. We hear how today's election in Holland reflects the recent past and may forecast the future.
Getting answers on phone taps, Russia and leaking The Directors of the FBI and the NSA testified on Capitol Hill today there's no evidence for President Trump's claim he was wire-tapped by former President Obama.
