"Everybody and their brother is getting into it," complained John P. Boyden at the edge of a minefield that cuts across Kuwait's southern desert from the Persian Gulf to the Saudi Arabian border. The deadly rows of mines, poking up like corn stubble from the sand, stretched into the distance behind him. "Before this happened, there were probably only three companies in the United States regularly doing explosives disposal work," he said. Now, he estimates, there may be twice that.

Nearly 38 years after its splashdown from space, the space capsule Liberty Bell 7 was successfully raised early Tuesday, a team of explorers announced. The capsule had lain three miles below the surface of the Atlantic Ocean near the Bahamas since astronaut Gus Grissom's 15-minute flight July 21, 1961. Parts of the craft were remarkably well-preserved, including several dimes from clothing worn by Grissom. Liberty Bell was the only manned spacecraft that had not been recovered.
