Los Alamos Develops Bomb-Detecting Bees Los Alamos is best known as the place where the Atomic Bomb was developed and where research on nuclear weapons has continued ever since. It's also home to the Stealthy Insect Sensor Project. The stealthy insects are honeybees, and the project is training them to detect explosives. Researchers at the project say they're "very excited" about training honeybees to detect explosives in cars, roadside bombs and belts similar to those used by suicide bombers.
Rhetoric and brinksmanship on the Korean Peninsula For 25 years, the US has viewed North Korea's nuclear program with increasing alarm. Now President Trump says this country has lost its "strategic patience." We hear what he's actually doing… and what might come next.

The flight bumping heard around 'round the world Recent video of a passenger forcibly removed from a United Airlines plane is a worst-case example of what's happened since consolidation into just four US-based carriers.
