A Russian Soyuz capsule returned to Earth Saturday, but missed its planned landing point by 260 miles. The crew -- Yi So-yeon (South Korea's first astronaut), Yuri Malenchenko (Russia) and Peggy Whitson (America) -- are safe, but were subjected to severe G-forces during a steeper than normal 'ballistic re-entry,' a spokesman for mission control said. More info and video report available at BBC News.

Crystal Skulls

In a new Archaeology article, Smithsonian anthropologist Jane MacLaren Walsh shares her quest to uncover the origins of crystal skulls. Crystal skulls first surfaced in museums during the second half of the 19th century and were attributed to various "ancient Mesoamerican" cultures. Walsh's own adventure began sixteen years ago, when she was called in to examine a hollow rock-crystal skull (pictured) sent to the museum anonymously. An accompanying letter suggested it the 30-pound, 10-inch-high artifact was of Aztec origin. "Although nearly all of the crystal skulls have at times been identified as Aztec, Toltec, Mixtec, or occasionally Maya, they do not reflect the artistic or stylistic characteristics of any of these cultures," Walsh writes. What else did Walsh discover about the crystal skulls? Where did they come from, and why were they made? Find our more at archaeology.org.

Organ Transplants, Memories & the Heart

First hour guest, Dr. Rollin McCraty talked about cellular memory and transplants. A recent case involving suicide linked a heart donor and recipient. Heart transplants more than any other organ, may involve the passing of memory or traits from the donor to the recipient, he said. This is because the heart responds before the brain, and in a way has its own brain, he continued. In related news, Cheryl Johnson (pictured) reports having a personality change after receiving a kidney transplant, and believes her new tastes in literature came from her donor.A theory called 'cellular memory phenomenon' suggests that human body cells contain clues to our personality that can bypass brain cells. More on Johnson's case here.

Tablet Depicts Asteroid that Hit Sodom & Gomorrah?

Cuneiform on an ancient clay tablet (pictured) has finally been decoded after 150 years of study. The tablet from 700 BC is said to be a copied witness account of a huge asteroid that crashed into Earth in 3123 BC. Many ancient tales record such devastation, including the Bible's Sodom & Gomorrah. More here.Appearing during the first half of the show, researcher Glenn Kimball commented on the finding. The date of 3123 BC doesn't jibe with the biblical timeline for the Sodom & Gomorrah event, he suggested. Rather than an asteroid, Kimball believes that angels sent down a localized destructive force that annihilated the twin cities. He said he was shown a desolate site in Israel by archeologist Vendyl Jones where Sodom & Gomorrah were possibly once located.

Phonautograph recordings were created by etching representations of sound waves into soot-covered paper. More at BBC News.
