MIT's flea market specializes in rare, obscure electronics

Once a month in the summer, a small parking lot on the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's campus transforms into a high-tech flea market known for its outlandish offerings. Tables overflow with antique radio equipment, some of it a century old. Visitors can buy a telescope that's the size of a cannon. One man has hauled in a NASA space capsule he owns.

Bald eagle snags osprey chick right from nest

Live cameras captured a bald eagle attack when two osprey parents were away from their nest of three chicks Monday at dusk on Hog Island, Maine. One of the Osprey parents suddenly enters the scene, trying to defend the nest, but can’t match the speed and power of the eagle, who snags one of the chicks.
