KIRKLAND AIR FORCE BASE, N.M. -- Just before dawn on July 16, 1945, scientists from Los Alamos detonated the world's first atomic bomb on a vast desert in south-central New Mexico, thereby opening a new chapter in the history of warfare. Not far from the site of that original blast, almost exactly 55 years later, on June 6, 2000, scientists and technicians from the army -- ours and Israel's -- performed another history-making feat when they used a chemically fueled, high-powered laser to zap an incoming Russian-made katyusha rocket with a live warhead on its nose.

With more than 30 reports of laser beams hitting airplane cockpits since Dec. 31, the government is warning the people responsible that they will be found and prosecuted. "Shining these lasers at airplanes is not a harmless prank," U.S. Transportation Secretary Norman Y. Mineta said this week. "It's stupid and dangerous. You are putting other people at risk, and law enforcement authorities are going to seek you out ... and prosecute you." Despite the fresh urgency in Mineta's warning, the problem of laser beams aimed at airplanes - accidentally or on purpose - is not a new one. More than 400 such incidents have been reported to the government since 1990.

For years, William Shatner wanted no part of the convention scene, had no desire to appear in front of the Trekkies, fanboys and obsessive sci-fi geeks who all craved a piece of Capt. James Tiberius Kirk. "That's very true," says Shatner, whose stance was perfectly captured in a 1986 "Saturday Night Live" skit, in which he urged a convention of costumed "Star Trek" fans to "get a life, will you, people!" But that was then. Today, Shatner is at peace with Captain Kirk - and, more important, with Captain Kirk's fans.

Pro soccer United, D.C. reach pact on new $300M stadium D.C. United executives and Washington officials have reached a preliminary $300 million deal to build a 20,000-seat stadium for the team on Buzzard Point in Southwest Washington. The agreement, team and city leaders said, could end a decade-long search by the Major League Soccer franchise for a new venue that would allow it to leave RFK Stadium, where D.C. United has played since its founding in 1996 but where its investors say the team loses money every year.

Eighteen times, he suited up for baseball's All-Star Game. No American Leaguer has played in more. The two trophies Cal Ripken Jr. won as the game's Most Valuable Player gleam, plain to see, in the former Oriole's Reisterstown home. Ripken played in the All-Star Game during the Orioles' lean years - four times, he made the trip alone. And he played in 1997 when, for the first time in history, fans picked three Orioles - Ripken, Roberto Alomar and Brady Anderson - to start the midsummer classic.

The competition for medical dollars within the Baltimore-Washington area got a national radio audience this morning, when NPR aired a story about plans for two proton beam therapy facilities in the District of Columbia. If built, those facilities -- proposed by the Johns Hopkins and MedStar medical systems -- would compete with a facility already under construction in downtown Baltimore, known as the Maryland Proton Treatment Center . Here's what The Baltimore Sun's Andrea K. Walker wrote about that Baltimore proton beam facility last year:   When completed in 2014, the treatment center will offer a form of cancer therapy growing in popularity that more precisely targets radiation to tumors, resulting in fewer side effects such as damage to other organs.

That's show biz. The final steel beam for the roof of the Music Center at Strathmore did not ascend right on cue, despite the pre-arranged cheers and thumbs-up signal from dozens of well-wishers at yesterday's "topping out" ceremony for the $90 million, 2,000-seat concert hall and educational complex that will become the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra's second home. And one of the BSO trumpeters scheduled to perform in the brass quintet for the occasion didn't make it. This might be the only time things haven't gone smoothly for this remarkable cultural project, which is on schedule for an opening by February 2005, if not a month or two earlier.
