7 miners killed in cave-in in South Africa
- An earthquake Thursday led to a cave-in that trapped 13 miners underground.
- Six of the miners were rescued and are in stable condition at a hospital, Sibanye-Stillwater said Saturday.
- South African President Cyril Ramaphosa and Sibanye-Stillwater expressed their condolences to the miners' loved ones.
- Ramaphosa said he hopes an investigation will identify the causes of the incident and lead to solutions that will address the "unacceptable" death rates at South African mines.
- Sibanye-Stillwater said a "thorough investigation" by management, the Department of Mineral Resources and others will be undertaken.
- Mine safety is an ongoing concern in South Africa.
- In February, more than 900 miners were rescued after being trapped in a mine for at least 24 hours following the loss of power after a storm.
- The rescue efforts were in Theunissen in the province of Free State.
4 wild conspiracy theories about Melania Trump
- First lady Melania Trump's reserved public persona has been the target of a slew of conspiracy theories since her husband's 2016 election, all of which her staff have been quick to shut down.
- Trump took longer than usual to move to the White House after her husband took office, spending the first five months of his presidency in New York City while Barron finished school in Manhattan.
- The theory first sprang to life when some thought Trump had been replaced by a look-alike for a public appearance, and continued when she was pictured alongside a Secret Service agent with similar hair and complexion.
- Business Insider's Kate Taylor dug into the mystery, and noticed the secret service agent was always wearing heels in photos of her with the first lady.
- Trump's life inside the White House reportedly includes very little time in the West Wing with her husband, a claim her staff attributes to the couple's independently busy schedules.
Border agent demands ID from woman in Montana after hearing her speak Spanish
- Ana Suda, who was born in Texas, recorded the encounter last week on her cell phone after the agent asked her and her friend, Mimi Hernandez, who is from California, for their IDs while they waited in line to pay for groceries at a gas station.
- Suda then asks the agent whether she and her friend are being racially profiled.
- US Customs and Border Protection is now reviewing the encounter, the agency told CNN Monday.
- And though English is spoken in most homes -- and used for government documents, court proceedings and business contracts -- at least 350 languages are spoken in the country, according to the US Census Bureau.
- About 4% of Montana residents speak a language other than English at home, according to the US Census.
- Suda had gone to the store with her friend to buy milk and eggs, she told CNN's Don Lemon on Monday.
Trump's norm-breaking is leading to a constitutional fight
- But the fact the conversation took place at all reflects the extraordinary times in Trump's Washington -- when a President has turned on his own Justice Department and is exhorting his loyal political followers to do the same in a way that can only provoke a greater confrontation.
- The campaign is using Trump-friendly media and the President to force Rosenstein to reveal details about the investigation that both the Justice Department and FBI do not want disclosed.
- The fact that there is no evidence that the FBI, the Justice Department or senior Obama officials came up with a "spy" scheme doesn't matter in this context -- this is an active political campaign rather than a legal defense to the Mueller investigation.
Consumer Reports doesn't recommend the Tesla Model 3
- New York (CNNMoney) - The Tesla Model 3 is not good enough to earn a recommendation from Consumer Reports, the magazine said.
- Consumer Reports has said the larger and more expensive Tesla Model S was among the best cars it had ever tested.
- In Consumer Reports tests, the Model 3 went from zero to 60 miles an hour in just 5.3 seconds, and testers found the sedan's handling reminiscent of a Porsche Boxster two-seat sports car.
- But, in emergency braking tests, the car took 152 feet, on average, to come to a stop from 60 miles an hour.
- Tesla's own tests have shown much shorter stopping distances, a spokeswoman for the automaker said.
- The publication also took issue with the Model 3's controls, almost all of which rely on a large centrally-located touch screen.
Is an Interstellar Asteroid Trapped Near Jupiter? Get the Facts.
- In a study published today in the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society: Letters, Namouni and Morais argue that BZ509 joined our solar system in its infancy, settling into a backward yet stable orbit that travels in lockstep with Jupiter's path around the sun.
- Namouni and Morais took notice of the asteroid not only because it orbits the sun backward, but also because its orbit nearly overlaps with Jupiter's—the first known object to play a game of chicken with our solar system's biggest planet.
- For humans to have a statistical chance of seeing Bee-Zed, Namouni and Morais argue that the asteroid must have been in a highly stable orbit for 4.5 billion years.
- Levison, Bottke, and Nesvorny recommend running massive simulations of how the planets formed and ultimately settled into their current orbits, specifically to see whether local objects enter orbits like Bee-Zed's more or less frequently than interstellar ones like 'Oumuamua.

Orbital ATK will launch an Antares rocket to the International Space Station tomorrow morning
- Early risers on the US East Coast might get a bit of a show tomorrow morning: private space company Orbital ATK will launch its Antares rocket with a Cygnus spacecraft at 4:39 AM EDT from NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia.
- One piece of equipment that the rocket will carry is the Cold Atom Laboratory, which will use magnetic fields and lasers to create clouds of atoms called Bose-Einstein condensates (BECs), cooled to just above absolute zero.
- On Earth, those BECs are dragged down by gravity, limiting the amount of time they can be observed, but aboard the microgravity environment of the ISS, they can be observed for much longer — up to 10 seconds, and should give scientists some insight into how the particles interact with one another.
- The Cygnus will also carry a new communications system called the Common Communication for Visiting Vehicles (C2V2)m for the first time.
