Robert Hughes of Fort Worth, Texas, retired in 2005 with 1,333 wins --- more than any other high school basketball coach in the country!

In May 2006, a thief stole an entire front yard from a house in Adelanto, Calif., taking the grass, plants and even the sprinkler system!

The Zephyr, a prototype solar-powered unmanned aerial vehicle, has a 60-foot wingspan but weighs just 66 pounds and can stay aloft for 54 hours straight!

< TASK > Answer the questions.

(1) How many games did Robert win as a high school basketball coach?

(2) What did the thief steal from a house in Adelanto?

(3) For how many hours straight can the Zephyr stay aloft?
