    A cleaning woman stole an empty commuter train in a suburb of Stockholm and crashed it into a house, injuring herself, Swedish officials say.

"We have only heard good things about her," Tomas Hedenius, a spokesman for train operator Arriva, was quoted as saying by AP news...

"The inaccurate perception of its distance and speed ... prevented DART from taking effective action to avoid a collision," the summary said. The 800-pound Demonstration for Autonomous Rendezvous Technology spacecraft was supposed to rendezvous with...

The PV-1 Ventura bomber was part of a five-plane flight that encountered bad weather during the mission. The plane failed to return to its base,...
