At a rally in New York City's Times Square on Sunday, protesters filled three city blocks to express solidarity with Muslims, and to speak out against President Trump's now-rescinded executive order banning immigration from seven predominantly Muslim countries.

It has been three-quarters of a century since President Franklin Delano Roosevelt signed Executive Order 9066. The order, issued just over two months after Japan's surprise attack at Pearl Harbor, gave the U.S. military the ability to designate areas "from which any or all persons may be excluded."

Defense Secretary James Mattis said on Sunday that he disagreed with President Donald Trump's recent declaration that the press is "the enemy."

Many astronomers now think there may be a massive, undiscovered planet lurking in the far reaches of our solar system. Right now, however, the existence of this planet is theoretical. So the hunt is on to actually capture an image of it. The obvious way to look for the new planet is to point large telescopes at the patch of sky where theory says it ought to be...

Couple Moves On From Silence About Time In Japanese Internment Camps

This weekend marks 75 years since President Roosevelt's executive order that sent Japanese-Americans to internment camps. Roy Ebihara and his wife, 82-year-old Aiko, were children then, and both were held in camps with their families. At StoryCorps, 83-year-old Roy told Aiko about what happened in his hometown of Clovis, N.M., in the weeks just before the executive order was issued.
