The news begins anew with "Studio B"...

An astronaut on Discovery (search) successfully finishes a first-of-its-kind emergency repair job on the space shuttle when he pulled two strips of protruding fabric from the shuttle's belly. We'll get the lowdown on the successful repair from Corey Powell, a former technician at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center.

Then, 14 Marines and a civilian interpreter are killed in Iraq by an improvised explosive that hit the amphibious assault vehicle in which they were riding in. This most recent attack raises the number of troops killed this week to 21. We're live in Baghdad with the latest.

And, China and Russia are teaming up to conduct war games. Should the U.S. be concerned? Michael O'Hanlon, senior fellow at the Brookings Institution, weighs in.

Plus, many car dealerships have been pushing their "employee discount" promise to lure in potential buyers. But are you really getting a great deal? We'll ask Mike Quincy, automotive content specialist for Consumer Reports magazine.

Real journalism: fair and balanced. That's why we're No. 1 — FOX News Channel.
