LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Four dozen engineers and space scientists from NASA are in Southern Nevada this week to check out some technology that could take us back to the moon, and maybe to Mars.

The project is called Gateway. NASA wants to have an orbital station above the moon by 2024, and one of the four companies being considered for that station is Bigelow Aerospace in North Las Vegas.

WASHINGTON DC (NEXSTAR) – The World Health Organization (WHO) reported Thursday four European countries have lost their measles-free status.

The U.S. could be next.

“It isn’t as if we don’t have the tools to completely eliminate measles, we do.
