Attacks in France, Tunisia and Kuwait: What happened on Friday — Attackers carried out strikes hours apart from each other in three different countries on Friday morning. It's unclear at this point if Friday's attacks are related. However, we are following all three events as the stories unfold.

This stick-on bra swimsuit from 1949 was kind of brilliant — Around 1945, Charles L. Langs was watching his wife fiddling with her swimming costume straps in order to get an even tan on her back, when he was suddenly struck by a brilliant idea. Why not do away with the strap, without a dress? Individual strapless cups for each breast, stuck on with adhesive.

The suffragette who rode a scooter in 1916 — Yes, she is a suffragette, and yes, that is her scooter. English socialite and activist Florence Priscilla, Lady Norman, CBE was given this Autoped as a birthday present by her husband, Sir Henry Norman. She used it to travel to her office in central London.

'Our time is now': Baltimore prosecutor's bold statements on youth and justice — As Baltimore's top prosecutor Marilyn Mosby read off a long list of charges against six police officers in the death of Freddie Gray, it was clear that this was a historical moment. As this story continues to unfold, 35-year-old Mosby has stepped forward into the spotlight, vowing to bring justice to Baltimore for Gray.

Where the Supreme Court stands now — The Supreme Court heard historic arguments on April 28 over the right of gay and lesbian couples to marry. Same-sex couples can now marry in 36 states and the District of Columbia, but the court is determining whether these unions should be allowed in all 50 states.

Hillary Clinton updates her logo to support same-sex marriage — Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton changed her avatar on her Twitter and Facebook pages on Tuesday, when the Supreme Court will hear historic arguments in cases that could make same-sex marriage a federal law.

Baltimore mom slaps and scolds rioting son in front of everyone — Many of the rioters who set Baltimore on fire on Monday evening were teenagers, and city officials called on parents get their kids out of the streets and stem the wave of chaos. At least one mother listened. As high schoolers threw rocks at police officers and set cars on fire, this mother searched through the rioting crowds for her kid.

Russian spaceport workers aren't getting paid, so they painted demands visible from above — The construction workers building Russia's new spaceport claim they have't been paid in four months. So to get President Vladimir Putin's attention, they painted their demands in letters big enough to be seen from above. Scribbled in white paint on the roofs of construction huts, the messages read: "Dear Putin," "save the workers," "four months without pay" and "we want to work."

Latest video shows how close SpaceX got to landing Falcon 9 — The landing wasn't quite right, but it sure was close enough to be considered a minor victory. After launching a Dragon cargo mission to the International Space Station on Tuesday, SpaceX made a second attempt to return the first stage of its Falcon 9 rocket and land it on a drone ship off the coast of Florida.

Watch live: SpaceX attempts historic rocket landing — SpaceX will try once again to launch its cargo capsule to the International Space Station on Tuesday at 4:10 p.m. ET, but what comes after that will be its biggest feat yet.
