The story of a woman's death was posted to Wikipedia -- 14 hours before the police found out about it. The person who posted the news says it was a coincidence. They didn't know the death had really happened and were just reporting a rumor.
The woman, Nancy Benoit, was the wife of pro wrestler Chris Benoit. Police say the wrestler killed her, his son, and himself last weekend at their home in Fayetteville, USA. The family was found dead on Sunday.
Earlier, Benoit missed a wrestling match. Fans wondered why. Some said maybe his wife had died. One person decided to post this to Wikipedia. Later, when the Benoits were found dead, people wondered if the poster had known about the deaths earlier.
The poster, who won't give a name, says, "I found out that what I posted, ended up actually happening, a 1 in 10,000 chance of happening, or so I thought. I was beyond wrong for posting wrongful information, and I am sorry to everyone for this."

The European Space Agency is looking for volunteers to take a simulated (imitation) trip to Mars.
The ESA wants to find out what a long spaceflight will do to people's minds. So the volunteers will stay in a model spaceship for up to 520 days. Their only contact with the outside world will be by radio, with a 40-minute delay.
The experiment is planned for 2008. The ESA is looking for two crew members and two backups. They must come from countries that belong to the ESA. They can apply at the ESA website.
