Space porn: These images are (quite literally) out of this world
He might not be a 10-foot-tall blue representation of Sam Worthington like her “Avatar” lover, but actor and online entrepreneur Keith Britton was still able to win the love of Zoe Saldana. The couple have decided to tie the knot after being together for 10 years. Britton is the CEO of My Fashion Database (it’s like an IMDB for the fashion industry) and has appeared in “As the World Turns,” “Cold Case,” and something called “Frat Brothers of the KVL,” which IMDB says is “the savage and lurid tale of an outlaw lacrosse fraternity.” Rad.
US Weekly broke the news about the “Star Trek” actress, but People got the confirmation direct from Saldana’s rep. For those of us who had no idea she had a man in the first place, ContactMusic had a report a few weeks ago about Zoe embarrassing Keith at an awards show by expressing her love for him. A little more from the super-private star over at SF Gate.
Fanboys must be crying over their stuffed Tauntaun dolls this week: first Megan Fox, now Zoe. Sorry guys.
NASA astronaut Mike Hopkins

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.
