Trouble is brewing for a Chinese electronics giant, students sent a rocket into actual space, and the highly infectious measles just won't go away. Here's the news you need to know, in two minutes or less.

President Donald Trump has deemed Chinese electronics giant Huawei a national security threat—a problem the company thought it could weather. But now some of its suppliers are backing away, potentially leaving Huawei crippled. How bad is it? "This is like telling Coca-Cola that they can't use carbonated water."

A rocket built entirely by USC students soared past the Kármán line—the boundary that marks the end of Earth's atmosphere—reaching 339,800 feet and a top speed of 3,386 mph. It's only the second amateur rocket group in history to have accomplished the feat. The students' next goal? Claiming the highest amateur rocket launch in history.

In 2000, the US declared the deadly measles virus eliminated. But since January 1 of this year, measles has sickened 880 people across 24 states—more than all the cases of the past three years combined. That declaration could be officially reversed this September, entering us into a dark era of highly infectious disease.

Cannondale's latest addition to its bicycle lineup clocks in as a lightweight fitness bike—i.e. a hybrid of sorts. It's no hassle to run errands or zip down to the beach with, but it's also effective for longer expeditions. The really cool thing? It can track all your rides with onboard sensors.
