In a paper published in the journal Nature, researchers describe 18 mysterious depressions on the speeding comet that they say could only occur by sinkhole collapse.

A special meeting of the board has been scheduled for 6 p.m. Tuesday in Room 250 of Casco Bay High School, the school district said in a statement Thursday. The board will meet privately before reconvening in public to vote on the appointment.
