Antartic Rescue

CANBERRA, Australia (AP) — All 52 scientists and tourists have now been safely rescued from a research ship that's been stuck in ice in the Antarctic since Christmas Eve. Weather conditions finally cleared today for a helicopter to take the 52 from the Russian ship to an Australian icebreaker. The ship's 22 crew members will stay with their trapped vessel. They're not in danger of sinking and they have weeks' worth of supplies.
