12th May - Today's News: Second Major Earthquake Strikes Nepal

Nepal earthquake, magnitude 7.3, strikes near Everest - as usual it may be some time before we know the scale of its impact.

A 'bum slide warning' to hillwalkers tackling Ben Nevis (or, indeed any other hill) - it's a great fun way of getting down, but never attempt it without an ice axe and being sure of the run out at the bottom!

And we have the best view yet of Ceres' spots - certainly looking more like ice than space aliens to me
