Astronaut Scott Kelly's One Year Mission and the Twin Study The longest American space voyage ever is now over and scientists are about to swarm over Scott Kelly. When the astronaut touched down yesterday in Kazakhstan, he set a record for the longest spaceflight by an American. Kelly now holds the record of 340 days in space… and comparison with his twin brother , former astronaut Mark Kelly, offers a unique opportunity. We hear what's in store for Kelly and from America's former record holder.

The Trump agenda: where's the beef? President Trump says big things are happening. After celebrating a House bill on health care, he doesn’t yet have Senate agreement.

Later, terror attacks in Iran and conflicting claims about who’s behind them.
Trump plays scolder-in-chief with NATO allies At the opening of NATO’s dramatic new headquarters in Brussels today, President Trump acknowledged that Article 5 — promising that “an attack on one nation is an attack on all” -- has only been invoked one time: in the aftermath of September 11. But the President failed to provide what 27 other Alliance members have been waiting for: a re-commitment by America’s new leader to Article 5. Instead, they got a scolding.
Replacing Obamacare: Now you see it… now you don’t As the Senate deliberates replacing Obmacare, health coverage for millions of people is at stake. There've been no public hearings, and a draft measure won't be made public. Is the House version so unpopular that that Senate is hiding a version that looks much the same?
