"Red Baron" Shot Down by Allied Fire (1918)

Manfred von Richthofen, the "Red Baron," was the World War I German aviator who commanded the flying squadron that became known as Richthofen's Flying Circus. He was the war's most successful flying ace, shooting down 80 aircraft before being killed in action. In April 1918, he was shot in the chest while dogfighting over France. He managed to land his plane but died soon after. The Red Baron has since become a symbol of dexterity, daring, and victory. Who fired the shot that killed him?

Moviegoers seem to have simultaneously gotten smarter and more spiritual over the first quarter of 2014 and that was clearly shown by this week's box office as four new movies opened--two with horrible reviews--and moviegoers decided to stick with the "sure things"--the sequels already in theaters and a movie based on a Christian bestseller--over the Easter weekend. Winning the battle for #1 for a second weekend in a row was Marvel Studios' Captain America: The Winter Soldier with an estimated weekend take of $26.6 million, down just 36% in its third weekend as it crossed the $200 million mark domestically.

Muhammad

According to Islamic tradition, Muhammad received his first divine revelation at the age of 40. The Qur'an, the sacred book of Islam, records many of the revelations Muhammad received as the final prophet of God. Included among Muhammad's fundamental teachings are the ideas that there is one God, that people must in all things submit to Him, and that nations have been punished for rejecting God's prophets. Why are visual depictions of Muhammad generally prohibited in Islam?

Asbestos

Nowadays, the idea of being exposed to asbestos strikes fear in the hearts of most. But just a couple of generations ago, people embraced asbestos-containing materials for their fire-and corrosion-resistant properties. Asbestos—a product obtained from a family of fibrous hydrated silicates—was used in fireproofing, electrical insulation, and various other building materials as well as safety apparel, brake pads, and countless other products. When was it discovered to be a serious health hazard?

Cryptography

Cryptography concerns the securing of information, often during communication, by translating messages into cipher or code. Ciphering has always been considered vital for diplomatic and military secrecy—the Bible is replete with examples of ciphering, and many figures throughout history have written in ciphers, including Julius Caesar, Charlemagne, Mary Queen of Scots, and Louis XIV. What legal issues and controversies surround cryptography methods in the 21st century?
