Trump fires back at Pelosi: ‘We’re soon going to have a one-party system’After House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi slammed him in an interview over the weekend, President Trump responded by accusing her of undermining the Democratic Party. In a “Fox & Friends” interview that aired Tuesday ahead of his address to a joint session of Congress, Trump branded Pelosi “incompetent” and said she’s “done a terrible job” as a party leader. “You know, if you look at what’s going on with the Democrats and the party, it’s getting smaller and smaller,” Trump said.

Five things to listen for in Trump’s big speechWhen Donald Trump steps to the podium before a joint session of Congress tonight, he will deliver his first major presidential address since his inauguration, when he memorably invoked the idea of “American carnage.” He will appear before a Congress and a country that is rife with unease and anxiety. Congress is filled with Republicans concerned about Trump’s penchant for chaotic leadership and Democrats swept up by an organic resistance to a president whom many of them regard as a threat to democracy. “All I can do is speak from the heart and say what I want to do,” Trump told “Fox and Friends” Tuesday morning, adding that he hoped to improve on his “messaging,” which he rated as only a “C or a C-plus” so far.

She is at the Judiciary Police in Lisbon now, but will be released today," de Sousa's lawyer, Manuel Magalhaes e Silva, told Reuters.

The royal visit is the first by a Saudi monarch in nearly five decades. The leaders oversaw, among 11 pacts, the signing of agreements to take down trade barriers and a new agreement between state energy companies Saudi Aramco and Pertamina, building on an existing $6 billion plan to expand Indonesia's biggest refinery.

SpaceX will fly two very rich passengers around the Moon next year

At a press conference today, prospective fallout shelter owner Elon Musk told reporters that SpaceX, Musk's solar space travel company, will be sending a pair of paying passengers around the Moon next year. The unnamed pair reportedly paid a "significant deposit" for the trip, which will be conducted using SpaceX's existing launch vehicles and spacecraft.

The trip will mark a new milestone for paid space travel. Although paid passengers have been into space before, it's normally either a short, peripheral flight, or piggybacking on a larger operation. Sending a spacecraft around the Moon would be a recent landmark for spacetravel if it was done by NASA; the fact that a pair of presumably inexperienced, paying customers are going to be the next to see the dark side of the Moon is a genuine game-changer.

“This is a really thing that’s happened,” Musk told reporters. “We’ve been approached to do a crewed mission beyond the Moon ...[and these passengers] are very serious about it. We plan to do that probably Dragon 2 spacecraft with the Falcon Heavy rocket.”

The trip will reportedly take around a week, as it will take mostly the same course as you're familiar with from Apollo 13: out to the Moon, slingshot around, and come back.

SpaceX has talked about manned space travel and space tourism before -- including an ambition to send paying clients to Mars! -- but this trip is sooner and more ambitious than most people had imagined. According to Gizmodo and Musk, these kind of paid missions look to be a part of SpaceX's broader ambitions, allowing SpaceX the funds and experience to build out its Mars plans, and allowing billionaires one hell of a vacation.

Victim quits pope's abuse panel, slams 'shameful' VaticanMarie Collins, an Irish survivor of clerical sex abuse, resigned Wednesday from Pope Francis's child protection panel, accusing senior Vatican officials of "shameful" blocking of reforms approved by the pontiff. The 70-year-old, who was raped by a hospital chaplain at 13, explained her decision in an article for the National Catholic Reporter (NCR). Collins's departure leaves the Pontifical Commission on the Protection of Minors with no abuse survivors working for it.

A volcano just erupted in Europe and the footage is amazingRed-hot, sparkling lava is shooting into the sky in eastern Sicily. Italy's Mount Etna volcano first became active on Jan. 23 and has experienced a series of eruptions ever since. The latest lava-spewing event began on Monday evening. SEE ALSO: India's only active volcano is back from the dead after 150 years In the video below, posted by Storyful, orange explosions of lava are seen spewing from the southeast crater. Residents in the nearby cities of Catania and Toarmina could see the lava show in the distance. Authorities reported no dangers to communities along the mountain’s slopes, the Associated Press reported Tuesday. At 10,900 feet high, Mount Etna is Europe's largest active volcano. The "stratavolcano" has a conical shape and is made from many layers of hardened lava, tephra, pumice and volcanic ash.  This Sicilian landmark also has one of the world's longest documented records of historical eruptions, dating back to at least 1,500 B.C.E. Smaller bursts have occurred regularly in recent years, though the last major event was in 1992. Plumes of smoke and ash erupt from Mount Etna on Oct. 30, 2002. Image: ISS/NASA/Getty Images During that eruption, as lava threatened to overtake a Sicilian village, U.S. marines lent a hand during the aptly named Operation Volcano Buster. A team flew helicopters over Etna and dropped concrete blocks at the edge of the lava tunnel to plug the hole.  The marines apparently didn't sweat it. "Everything is easier when no one is shooting at you," Comdr. John Carpenter of the Navy told the New York Times from Sicily in 1992.  Luckily, no soldiers were needed this time around.  BONUS: Exploring volcanoes with robots: a day in the life of Carolyn Parcheta
