Space porn: These images are (quite literally) out of this world
Supercuts are videos that take a bunch of other media (usually famous movies or TV shows) and mashes them together under a common theme, like the supercut of grossest movie kisses and sweetest make-out moments from television that we posted on Valentine’s Day. Basically, supercuts are the visual equivalent of a Girl Talk song, and they can range in concepts from famous last words in film to every time someone on a reality show has said “I’m not here to make friends.“
One of the latest of these pop culture remixes, called “Spoiler Alert,” takes clips from over 70 films that could ostensibly give away the ending if you hadn’t seen the movie yet. Or, at least, that’s the theory. The video actually doesn’t give anything away, since all the shots are taken out of context (the coffee mug falling to the floor in “The Usual Suspects,” Patrick Bateman staring intensely at the camera in “American Psycho”) and therefore don’t provide any clues as to how they relate to the plot at all. Still, it’s a fun exercise, especially if you try to guess where each scene comes from. Don’t watch this video, though, if you’re the kind of person who thinks that even trailers can ruin the plots of movies.
Spoiler alert: A lot of movies with twist endings star Kevin Spacey.
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.
