The destruction of an ancient temple, the “oil factor” in tumbling global stock markets, and the metric system are all featured this Wednesday. We’re telling you what’s random about a stretch of Arizona highway, and we’re looking into a failed mathematical effort by several U.S. presidents. Also featured: wreckage that dates back to the U.S. military’s flying aircraft carrier program.
