Nepalese farmers work in a fertile paddy in the village of Khokana on the outskirts of Katmandu; a newly arrived refugee child quenches his thirst at a settlement near the Kenya-Somalia border; while closer to home, the first-of-its-kind High Altitude Long Endurance-Demonstrator is launched at dawn at the historic Akron Airdock in Ohio.
