Archaeologists recover an ancient gateway to the underworld.
Archaeologists working in southwestern Turkey have excavated the ruins of Pluto’s Gate, known in its time as a portal to Hades. An inscription above one of the recovered Ionic columns is clearly dedicated to Pluto and Kore, deities of the underworld in Greco-Roman mythology.

Read the news today? Oh, boy.

Though our natural instincts have not come all the way around to accepting that we can travel safely in a metal tube hurled 30,000 feet above Earth’s surface at 600 miles per hour, air travel is statistically safer than driving a car or boating — even safer than walking or riding a bike, according to national safety data.
