Space porn: These images are (quite literally) out of this world
The 18-year-old daughter of Warren Beatty and Annette Bening is planning to undergo sex reassignment surgery, the San Francisco Examiner, New York Daily News and National Enquirer report. Kathlyn Beatty has been attending college as a man and now goes by the name Stephen Ira.
This isn’t the first time that rumors about Kathlyn have surfaced in the press: A 2008 Perez Hilton blind item said, “What teenage daughter of a superstar couple is living life as a transgender boy? Now going by the name Stephen, the teen’s parents pulled him out of the prestigious Buckley School in Los Angeles and are having him home-schooled to keep him out of the public eye.” Beatty fit the description, and her name was tossed around at the time.
Allegedly, Warren Beatty is “heartbroken” and “grief-stricken” over his oldest child’s decision. Media conversation has focused on Kathlyn’s age, with many outsiders saying she’s too young for the transition that 41-year-old Chaz Bono famously made over the past few years. While debate focuses on this and, naturally, her celebrity parents’ reactions, perhaps we should also be talking about Kathlyn’s bravery.
Below, watch Chaz Bono talking to Good Morning America about his experiences last year.

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.
