Space porn: These images are (quite literally) out of this world
James Franco is one prickly pear. It makes me wonder how he handles his class critiques over at Yale/NYU/Columbia/RISD/some place called Columbia University in Hollywood, etc.
After apparently reading our article calling his MFA-grabbing into question, James appeared on “The Colbert Report,” calling himself Frank Jameso (new “General Hospital” character?), an evil twin who knows what to ask his brother to make him mad.
“Does he think he’s a Renaissance Man, or is modern America so intellectually bankrupt that anyone pursuing any cultural enrichment of any kind makes him seem intellectual?”
Wow, shut up, James Franco. That’s not even a real question.
When Stephen says that he didn’t see Franco studying backstage, the flash of real anger in the actor’s eyes makes his whole stupid grandstanding kind of worth it. Also, when he tells James that Marlon Brando is basically calling him a pussy. Backtrack, fat Franco! Backtrack!
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.
