Space porn: These images are (quite literally) out of this world
As you may have heard, Salon recently purchased the domain name TuckerCarlson.net. Because our definitive, years-in-the-making Tucker Carlson profile is not yet finished, we need to figure out what to put there in the meantime. Our readers have had many fine suggestions.
A lot of readers — the vast majority, in fact — would like TuckerCarlson.net to point simply to this video, of Jon Stewart on “Crossfire.”
I enjoyed the simplicity of this suggestion, from Steven S.:
“my suggestion is that if there is a website out there that is nothing but a running video loop of some guy scratching his fingernails on a chalkboard over and over I think you should link tuckercarlson.net to that.”
Matt S. writes:
“A simple picture of an actual living mule (jackass) wearing a bow tie.”
I’d suggest assembling a user-submitted list, ranked by popularity, of the best constructive suggestions for how to recycle Tucker Carlson into resources which have social value.
Keep ‘em coming! (We also had a suggestion from reader Keith O. that we may try out. We’ll keep you posted!) As always, please go to TuckerCarlson.net for the very best TuckerCarlson news and information the internet has to offer.

NASA astronaut Mike Hopkins
On December 28, 2013, Expedition 38 crew member Mike Hopkins participating in the second of two space walks to replace a degraded pump module on the International Space Station. (NASA astronaut Rick Mastracchio is reflected in his helmet!)
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.
