The sisters of Our Lady of the Angels Monastery in Crozet, Va., have been producing Gouda by the same process for more than 20 years. Sales have doubled since the first year of production as the mild, sweet flavored cheese remains in high demand.

NASA tried one last time to contact its record-setting Mars rover Opportunity, but declared it dead on Feb. 13, 2019, 15 years after arriving at the Red Planet. The solar-powered rover has been silent for eight months, victim of one of the most intense dust storms in decades.
