Starship explosion a big win; Italy on top of rugby world; the alligator in the swimming pool; and the vet who wears a fox mask.  

In a sky-high drama, a SpaceX Starship turned into a fireworks show, going kaboom before hitting the ocean, but scientists cheered, calling it a step towards moon trips. No astronauts aboard, just lessons learned and a promise of lunar leaps ahead.

Albert the alligator, the blind pool party legend, got his invite revoked. Decades of splashy fun ended as he’s off to a chill retirement home. Lesson of the day: Swimming with gators is out, inflatable dolphins are in. Bye-bye, poolside chomps!

Italy’s rugby team showed the world how to party for second-last place like it’s a win! Ditching the wooden spoon, they celebrated a victory of spirit. It’s not about winning; it’s about playing the game and giving it your all. Go, Italy!

A vet turned into a fox mom with a mask, all to help a baby fox feel at home. This furry tale of disguise and giggles shows how far we go for our animal friends. Sneaky, sneaky human, but it’s all for a good cause.
