Space porn: These images are (quite literally) out of this world
Kathleen Hanna is best known as the lead singer for the punk band Bikini Kill, as she puts it, “a band that is radical not just because they challenge standard business practices, media expectations, and hierarchical bullshit, but also because they are feminist thrillseekers.”
She was active in the formation of Riot Grrrl Press, a non-profit distribution/printing service for underground female writers and imagemakers. Not content playing the role of transcendental artist — somehow separated from everyday life and community — Hanna doesn’t just create musical or artistic products, she books shows, makes fanzines, provides resources, speaks out in her community, creates forums for other women, and stays busy networking and sharing ideas with all the girls who write her “fan” letters.
In February 1991, Slim Moon started Kill Rock Stars Records in order to release the “Wordcore Volume 1″ 7-inch that featured spoken word by Moon and Hanna. Listen to this seminal recording of Hanna performing “Rockstar.”

The Soyuz TMA-10M
The Soyuz TMA-10M headed towards the International Space Station with crew members from Expedition 37 onboard.
40 years ago the Apollo 8 mission flew up to the moon, orbited it ten times and then returned to Earth. This picture was taken from that flight and shows the Earth as it seemingly rises in similar fashion to a sunrise.
Sunrise from Expedition 36
NASA Flight Engineer Karen L. Nyberg of Expedition 36 took this photo of the sun rising -- a sight they saw nearly 16 times per day due to the speed of the International Space Station's orbit around the earth.
A pair of NanoRacks CubeSats -- nanosattelite spacecrafts carrying experiments -- were launched by Expedition 38.
