Space porn: These images are (quite literally) out of this world
Jurors at former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich’s corruption trial have begun their eleventh day trying to reach a verdict.
There’s still no indication Wednesday of whether jurors are simply taking their time to walk through all the evidence or if they’re bogged down in arguments.
Since they began deliberations, they’ve only sent two notes to the judge. The last was sent on their third day of deliberations. That’s made it hard to glean how discussions are going.
Jurors have worked every weekday, but taken weekends off.
Blagojevich faces 24 counts, including charges of trying to sell or trade an appointment to President Barack Obama’s vacated Senate seat. He has pleaded not guilty.

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.
