More on the news that Russia is threatening to cut off natural gas supplies to Ukraine. Plus, sales of Airbus long-haul planes have been grounded lately -- Emirates just canceled a big order of A350s, and Airbus' flagship A380 hasn't had a new order in two years. What does all of this mean for Boeing's 787 Dreamliner, and soon the 777X? Also, for more than 30 years, the biomedical industry has been using horseshoe crabs to make a critical medical product. Now there’s a fight in the industry: use a synthetic alternative or a new technology that uses far less crabs?
