Space porn: These images are (quite literally) out of this world
Adding to the list of couples tying the knot or getting engaged this summer (Harrison Ford and Calista Flockhart, Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green, Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston), Spanish actors Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem were wed in a very small ceremony earlier this month in the Bahamas. The couple have been together since 2007, and co-starred in Woody Allen’s “Vicky Cristina Barcelona” along with Scarlett Johansson — a movie for which Cruz took home an Academy Award. Bardem won the Oscar for his bone-chilling turn in “No Country For Old Men,” so they have a matched set.
The wedding was confirmed to People magazine by a rep for the couple, and if you’re into speculation, Life & Style claims to know Cruz is pregnant, hence the hush-hush nuptials. Up next for the couple, Bardem is set to appear on Sseason 2 of “Glee,” confirmed by E!Online, and Cruz is filming the fourth installment of the “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise with Johnny Depp. MTV had an interview with the film’s producer, Jerry Bruckheimer, last week.
This clip is the most widely sought of Penelope Cruz, but no Javier anywhere: It’s the scene from “Vicky Cristina Barcelona” in which Cruz and Johansson make out. Hot.

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.
