Hazard picked up a knock and was substituted on 70 minutes Monday, June 11, 2018 Romelu Lukaku starred for Belgium with two goals and an assist as the Red Devils ran out 4-1 winners in their final pre-World Cup friendly against Costa Rica on Monday night.

Costa Rica took the lead through captain Bryan Ruiz after 24 minutes, but were behind by half time as Dries Mertens and Romelu Lukaku responded. In the second half, Lukaku furthered B...

TESS snaps image of the stars as it swings by the moon en route to its final orbit

Science
May 18 (UPI) -- TESS, or the Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite, NASA's next-generation planet hunter, snapped a picture of the stars as it swung within 5,000 miles of the moon on Thursday, using the moon's gravity to fling itself toward its final orbit.

The two-second test exposure, captured on Thursday, suggests the planet hunter's cameras are working properly. The plethora of stars in the image -- at least 2,000 of them -- showcases the broad perspective provided by TESS's four cameras. At the center of the image lies the southern constellation Centaurus. While TESS's scientific mission is largely the same as NASA's veteran planet hunter Kepler's -- to take im...
