First thoughts, running arguments, stories in progress

Super Tuesday night: Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are the big winners of the night, each winning seven nominating contests. Team politics is live-blogging the primary action here.

A journey home: Three astronauts are on their way back to Earth from the International Space Station. Two of them, NASA’s Scott Kelly and Roscosmos’s Mikhail Kornienko, have spent nearly a year there so researchers can study the effects of long-term exposure to microgravity on human beings.

A United Nations vote: The UN Security Council will vote tomorrow on sanctions against North Korea. The measures are in response to Pyongyang’s recent nuclear test and rocket launch, which violate UN resolutions. The vote was supposed to take place today, but was postponed at Russia’s request.

The worsening refugee crisis: The AP spoke to one of 10,000 migrants stuck at a camp on the border of Greece and Macedonia. “I’ve been at Idomeni for 10 days and it’s the fourth day I’ve been waiting to cross over,” said Hassan Rasheed, who is from Iraq. “Conditions are very bad. There are many ill children who are coughing, and we spent the night in this tent under heavy rain.” Hundreds of migrants continue to arrive on the Greek islands from Turkey every day.
