Space porn: These images are (quite literally) out of this world
Ex-Miss California Carrie Prejean is being taken to court … over her breasts. K2 Productions, the organizer of the Miss California USA pageant, is suing the dethroned beauty queen for failing to pay back a $5,200 loan for a boob job. She elected for the plastic surgery to make her ”more competitive” at the Miss USA pageant (and perhaps it did make her more competitive, but of course it didn’t save her from losing in April after voicing her personal opposition to same-sex marriage).
The complaint filed Monday goes after more than just her implants, staking additional claim to the proceeds from her book, and accusing her of ”missing events” and “using her title without authorization to help promote the National Organization for Marriage’s ‘campaign of intolerance’ against gay marriage,” reports New York Daily News. It also takes issue with the semi-nude shots that surfaced during the Miss USA scandal: Prejean swore she was a minor in the photos and claimed she hadn’t posed for any other raunchy snapshots — but K2 Productions alleges she was of age in the shots and that far more explicit photos of Prejean exist and could surface at any moment. In other words: There is still more to come from this salacious spectacle.
Please, say it isn’t so. If a lawsuit over breast implants isn’t the ugliest this scandal can get, I’m not sure I can handle what’s next.

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.
