Space porn: These images are (quite literally) out of this world
Elizabeth Edwards says she wants her children to love their father and see him in a positive light despite the affair that wrecked their marriage.
The separated wife of former North Carolina Sen. John Edwards said in an interview on NBC’s “Today” show Wednesday that the two-time presidential candidate isn’t the same person she married more than 30 years ago. But she noted her battle with cancer when saying it’s important to her that their children see him in a positive light.
“I have three living children for whom this is a father I want them to love and on whom they’re going to have to rely perhaps if my disease takes a bad turn,” Elizabeth Edwards said.
Elizabeth Edwards said their new parenting dynamics are “going pretty well.” Two of their children are still preteens.
John Edwards has acknowledged fathering a child with his mistress as he campaigned for president. Elizabeth Edwards said the decision to end the marriage was difficult because she had leaned on him for so long.
“I was going to be on my own in a way that I maybe hadn’t ever really been, and that was pretty terrifying, particularly facing a disease, young children and a fairly uncertain future,” she said.

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.
