The Lower Manhattan revival, now featuring One World Trade Center

NEW YORK ? When the people of this city set out to rebuild the World Trade Center after Sept. 11, they planned to erect a  lasting memorial, remake the skyline and restore Lower Manhattan as a financial center. But when the 104-story One World Trade Center officially opens for business Monday ? the tallest and most expensive building  in the Western Hemisphere ? it will have ushered in a rebirth of lower Manhattan as a vibrant, urban neighborhood where people  live, shop and eat, rather than just hustle home from white collar jobs. While officials and developers battled over final details of the reconstruction in recent years, the neighborhoods around  Ground Zero blossomed. Though finance and accounting firms including Deloitte & Touche and Fidelity Investments have not returned  in any significant way, hordes of condo buyers arrived, attracted by walkable neighborhoods, chic bars and chef-driven restaurants. The political battles, lawsuits and disagreements behind the reconstruction of One World Trade Center have been well chronicled  over the past decade.

At least three men were shot and wounded Friday night in the heart of downtown Washington amid heavy Halloween police patrols. A fourth person was injured nearby, but it was unclear if he was shot.

The three men were wounded at about 10 p.m. at Seventh and F streets NW near the Verizon Center. One was hit near the shoulder, D.C. Police Chief Cathy L. Lanier said, and the others were apparently grazed. It was ?kind of shocking? for anyone to be ?brazen enough? to open fire with police on every corner, she said.

No Automation, One Shot at Landing: It’s Really Hard to Fly SpaceShipTwo

Friday morning, Virgin Galactic?s spaceship, meant to eventually take wealthy passengers on brief rides into space, crashed during a test flight over southern California. One of the pilots onboard was killed, the other suffered serious injuries and was transported to the hospital. It?s a serious setback for the space tourism effort, but is unlikely to kill the enterprise altogether. The program is quite advanced, and Richard Branson?s employees have put a ton of effort into finding a reliable way to get people into space. Here's how they plan to do it once they're back on track.
