WATCH: Rider Hits 80 MPH on Bike

  A custom-built frame, 104-tooth chainring, and a classic car helped British cyclist Ton Donhou hit 80 miles per hour in a speed attempt in the U.K. Donhou, a bike frame builder, said he got the inspiration for the project from the automobile speed records of the 1960s, set with rocket-propelled cars on the Bonneville Salt Flats. Unlike current world record holder Fred Rompelberg, who drafted a drag racer to 167 miles per hour at Bonneville in 1995, Donhou set his record on an airport runway behind his own car, a Ford Zephyr equipped...

Annular Eclipse May 20th

If you live in a band across the southwestern United States, twilight will seem to come early on Sunday afternoon, well before the sun actually sets. The cause: a rare annular solar eclipse — a ring of sunlight as the new moon, passing between Earth and the sun, blocks most, but not all, of the sun’s disc.
