Space porn: These images are (quite literally) out of this world
Mel Gibson and ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva have filed restraining orders against each other, TMZ reports. Grigorieva filed first, and sources say she’s alleging that Gibson was violent with her. Gibson filed his restraining order to prevent her from leaking information. People are talking about it because, well, it’s Mel Gibson, and his personal life seems to be a giant blinking target made of drama and bad decisions.
In April 2009, Gibson’s wife of 30 years, Robyn, filed for divorce. Soon after, he went public with Grigorieva, but they broke up in April. The couple has a seven-month old daughter, Lucia, who is at the center of this court battle.
This will probably only get dirtier, and it’s not the last we’ll hear of it in the media. File this one away with Jon and Kate, Charlie and Brooke, and Heidi and Spencer in the cabinet marked “Dysfunctional Couples that Make Us All Feel Better About Our Own Relationships.”

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.
