WASHINGTON (AP) — The battle over the fortune of ailing media mogul Sumner Redstone has taken another turn. Lawyers for Redstone are seeking to remove two members of the board of the trust that will eventually control Redstone's media empire, which includes CBS Corp. and Viacom Inc.
A giant NASA fuel tank crossed the half-way mark in its final journey on Saturday, with crowds cheering on its parade along Los Angeles streets to a science center where it will go on display with the space shuttle Endeavour. The orange tank, weighing 65,000 pounds (29,500 kg) and measuring 154 feet (47 meters) in length, is the only one of its kind in existence. The California Science Center has called the parade of the fuel tank, which stands about three stories tall when towed on its side by a truck, "ET Comes Home," in a play on the "external tank" name and the 1982 movie "E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial." The transport is a sequel of sorts to the 2012 mission to tow Endeavour from the Los Angeles airport to the science center, a feat witnessed by 1.5 million.
