Mission to Mercury: British built space craft to blast off to Mercury in first European mission of its kind

Child 'Vampire' Was Buried 1,550 Years Ago in Italy

A 1,550-year-old "vampire burial" of a child with a rock stuffed into his or her mouth has been discovered in an ancient cemetery in Lugnano, Italy.

It's extremely eerie and weird," said David Soren, an anthrop...
