          Here's What Bernie Sanders Actually Did in the Civil Rights Movement
    
          February 12, 2016
    
          Sanders attended the 1963 March on Washington, but most of his work was in and around Hyde Park, where he was involved with the campus chapter of CORE in 1961. A group of apartment-hunting white and black students discovered that off-campus buildings owned by the university were refusing to rent to black students, in violation of the school's policies. CORE organized a 15-day sit-in at the administration building, which Sanders helped lead.

          Gravitational Waves: The Inside Story
    
          February 12, 2016
    
          More than  a billion years ago and a billion light years away, two black holes merged. This was a truly cataclysmic event a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away. In Star Wars Darth Vader tells us not to “underestimate the power of the dark side.” This amazing discovery shows how right he was.
