How do astronauts shower in space?

The explosion of a NASA-contracted rocket meant the loss of nearly 5,000 pounds of cargo for the International Space Station.

Attorney for Nurse Kaci Hickox on quarantine order: It's all political, driven by fear

Kaci Hickox, the nurse who recently returned from fighting Ebola in West Africa is now in the middle of a different fight in Maine. Governor Paul LePage says Hickox has been unwilling to follow CDC guidelines, even though those federal guidelines actually say she should not be quarantined. The state is seeking a court-order confining her to home.

"It is not my intentions to put anyone at risk in this community," Hickox told reporters outside her home in Fort Kent, Maine.

In an interview with Anderson, Hickox's lawyer, Steve Hyman says LePage is pandering to fear.

Girl allegedly rape after being used as "bait"

The family of a special needs student at a school in Madison County, Alabama is suing over an incident that happened nearly five years ago, but is still affecting the young woman, devastating her life. The girl, 14-years-old at the time, was allegedly used as 'bait' to catch an accused sexual predator, who was also a student at the school.

Teen used as bait in rape case: 'I was set up'

A legal brief in the case says a teacher's aide encouraged the girl to go with the boy into the bathroom, so teachers could catch him in the act. Only no teachers came to the rescue, and the girl was allegedly raped. The teacher's aide has since been forced to resign, but there have been no repercussions for the school administrators who allegedly knew about the plan or for the alleged rapist, beyond a few days suspension. CNN's Victor Blackwell speaks to the alleged rape victim who says she feels like she was set up by her teachers.

Yale student Ebola-free, but quarantined: I'm in disbelief

Amber Vinson, the second Dallas nurse who caught Ebola from Thomas Eric Duncan release Tuesday from an Atlanta hospital leaves a single person in the United States now battling Ebola.

Even without more cases, Ebola remains a hot topic of conversation around the country. That includes a debate about whether anyone should be allowed into the United States from West Africa, or at least whether health care volunteers and others coming from those Ebola-ravaged nations should be quarantined for three weeks upon arrival.

President Barack Obama said Tuesday that "monitoring and movement guidance" for those returning from the region should be "sensible," so long as it is based on science and doesn't unnecessarily prove an obstacle to those who risk their lives and livelihoods to head overseas to help those in need. So why has one volunteer who is Ebola free been under forced quarantine, with an armed officer outside his home for more than two weeks?

Anderson spoke with Ryan Boyko. He told Anderson the health department has yet to contact him about the reason for his forced quarantined.
