NASA's Messenger spacecraft has swung around its namesake planet for three years, beaming observations of Mercury back to Earth, but next March it will smash into the cratered surface it has been studying from afar. The satellite's oblong orbit around the solar system's innermost planet brings it gradually closer and closer as it looks into Mercury's mysterious volcanoes, craters and magnetic field. With dwindling fuel to counteract the dense planet's pull, the scientists managing the mission at Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory in Laurel can only delay its fall for so long.

Two police officers and two children were among six hurt in a Wednesday morning crash in Northeast Baltimore, police said.

Based on where the vehicles came to rest, the police vehicle appeared to have gone past a stop sign on Plainfield when the crash occurred. The other vehicle involved, an SUV, was driving along Frankford at the time, which did not have a stop sign at that intersection.
