Space porn: These images are (quite literally) out of this world
A judge has granted Michael Jackson’s ex-wife, Debbie Rowe, a $27,000 judgment against a woman who she says gave false information to reporters about her after the singer’s death.
The amount includes $10,000 in damages for Rowe’s emotional distress that she says she suffered after the interview aired on the television show “Extra.”
Rowe sued Rebecca White of Key West, Fla. in July. The suit said the woman falsely claimed in interviews that Rowe was only interested in getting money from the singer’s family and wasn’t interested in gaining custody of her two children with Jackson.
White never answered the complaint. A Los Angeles Superior Court judge entered a default judgment against her Wednesday.
At one point, Rowe sought a nearly $500,000 judgment but later lowered the figure.

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.
