1. B. Marla Cooper told the FBI she was sure the hijacker was her uncle, Lynn Doyle Cooper, whom the family called L.D.

2. A. The last shuttle mission went to the Atlantis orbiter. The second-to-last, in the Endeavour, received almost as much attention because its commander, Mark Kelly, is the husband of U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords.

3. D. Harpham was arrested at a roadblock near his Addy, Wash., home.
