Prince Harry to visit U.S., skipping Vegas this time

Prince will skip Vegas on his trip

Britain's Prince Harry is returning to the United States — but this time he's skipping Las Vegas. The prince will support veterans' charities and get in a bit of polo during his May 9-15 visit to the East Coast and Denver and Colorado Springs, Colo., a spokesman said Monday. On his visit last year, he stormed into the headlines when he was caught frolicking in the nude with a woman after an alleged game of strip billiards in his Las Vegas hotel room.

Mars rover goes back to work

The Mars rover Curiosity is humming again after being sidelined by back-to-back computer problems, mission managers said Monday. They said the six-wheel rover fired up its onboard laboratories and analyzed a pinch of rock dust over the weekend. It had been unable to do science experiments since late last month after experiencing a computer memory problem. Before the computer woes, Curiosity drilled into a rock, tested the powder and found it contained some of the chemical ingredients necessary for microbial life.

That covers a pension, compensation and benefits for office staff, and other costs like travel, office space and postage. The total is $200,000 less than in 2011.
