Space porn: These images are (quite literally) out of this world
“Any Way the Wind Blows” brings back characters from Harris’ previous novel “Not A Day Goes By”: John Basil Henderson is a good-looking former NFL player, who is now successfully running an agency for young athletes. He also left Broadway star Yancey Braxton at the altar a year before, confessing to her that he wasn’t sure of his sexual orientation. Since then Basil has maintained a stream of lovers, both women and men, abandoning all thoughts of family life.
But suddenly Yancey appears again on Basil’s radar. Now an up-and-coming recording star, Yancey’s latest hit takes aim at bisexual male lovers, and of course her fans and the press want to know if she’s singing about a real-life experience …
E. Lynn Harris is the author of six previous novels, including “Abide With Me” and “If This World Were Mine,” both of which were nominated for NAACP Image Awards. “If This World Were Mine” won the James Baldwin Award for Literary Excellence.

NASA astronaut Mike Hopkins
On December 28, 2013, Expedition 38 crew member Mike Hopkins participating in the second of two space walks to replace a degraded pump module on the International Space Station. (NASA astronaut Rick Mastracchio is reflected in his helmet!)
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.
