The Latest: Model rockets launched for Apollo 11 anniversary The Latest on the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing (all times local): 9:40 a.m. Thousands of model rockets have been launched in Huntsville, Alabama, 50 years after the Apollo 11 crew blasted off for the moon. Tuesday's launch was done by the U.S. Space and Rocket Center, which is attempting a world record. Huntsville, known as Rocket City, was the home of the powerful Saturn V rocket that took Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins to the moon.

House expected to vote on whether to hold Barr, Ross in contempt

The House of Representatives is expected to vote Tuesday on whether to hold Attorney General William Barr and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross in criminal contempt after they opted not to comply with subpoenas for information related to the push to add a citizenship question to the 2020 census. Criminal contempt can carry steep penalties, including huge fines and prison time. The move largely is symbolic,  however, as it's unlikely the Department of Justice will pursue charges against Barr and Ross. It comes after the Oversight and Reform Committee found Barr and Ross in contempt, on a bipartisan 24-15 vote, last month. It's the second time a House committee has found Barr in contempt as the Judiciary Committee did so in May for defying a subpoena for special counsel Robert Mueller's full report on Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Liftoff! Apollo 11 moon mission launched 50 years ago

Fifty years ago Tuesday, a Saturn V rocket carrying three astronauts blasted off from Florida's Kennedy Space Center as the Apollo 11 mission to the moon got underway. Four days after the launch, on July 20, 1969, America's staggering technological feat was achieved as Neil Armstrong spoke from the surface of the moon: "Houston, Tranquility base here. The Eagle has landed." In celebration of Apollo 11 this week, TV networks are rolling out specials, miniseries and movies. In the nation's capital, an image of a 363-foot Saturn V will be illuminated on the Washington monument. Step inside the moon mission with our augmented reality (AR) experience, "Apollo 11: America's Journey To The Moon," on the USA TODAY app. Looking ahead, there are more players in the space race, but they aren't in it for national pride. They are banking on financial opportunities and mining the moon for everything from tourism to clean energy.

R. Kelly due in court for bail hearing

R. Kelly is due in federal court Tuesday for a bail hearing. The singer was arrested in Chicago last week on child pornography and obstruction of justice charges, relating to his alleged behavior with five minors. In addition, prosecutors in New York have charged him with controlling a "racketeering enterprise" that transported women and girls across the United States for the purposes of sex. The singer, 52, has already been charged with two sets of multiple sex-crimes and on Monday, celebrity attorney Michael Avenatti said Kelly paid $2 million to keep the alleged victim in a child pornography case off the witness stand during a 2008 trial that ended with his acquittal on all charges.

John F. Kennedy Jr., the son of the 35th president, his wife Carolyn Bessette, and her sister, Lauren Bessette, perished when the light plane he was flying crashed into the Atlantic in fog off Martha's Vineyard on July 16, 1999. The couple were headed to his cousin Rory Kennedy's wedding at the Kennedy compound at Hyannis Port, Massachusetts, an occasion transformed by grief and later postponed. The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) later concluded that the accident was caused by the a mixture of weather, inexperience, and "spatial disorientation."  Many are still captivated by JFK Jr. and his wife, resulting in a slew of TV specials about their deaths, and their love story. A&E will air the two-hour special, "JFK Jr.: The Final Year," Tuesday night (9 p.m. ET/PT).
