This weird tradition is wild music to their ears.

Students at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology toppled a piano off the roof of their dorm, sending it plummeting six stories and smacking into a piano on the ground. Spectators grabbed souvenirs like piano keys and strings.

The commission sent two pounds of frozen lampreys from Lake Huron.

The Swiss team that built the Solar Impulse says the jumbo jet-sized prototype plane will make the 2,500-kilometer trip from Switzerland to Morocco.

The plane has been to France and Belgium — and the team has plans for a round-the-world flight in 2014.
