Space porn: These images are (quite literally) out of this world
A Fox Business host is apologizing for what detractors have called racist insults directed at President Barack Obama.
In a brief mea culpa, conservative host Eric Bolling said on his Monday broadcast that he “got a little fast and loose with the language.” He says he’s sorry his remarks were interpreted as disrespectful.
On Friday, Bolling criticized Obama’s recent meeting with Ali Bongo, president of the African nation of Gabon, who is viewed by some as a corrupt leader.
Bolling went on to say it’s not the first time Obama has had “a hoodlum in the hizzouse.”
The rapper Common recently appeared at a White House poetry event despite complaints that some of his poems promote violence.
Bolling said, “What’s with all the hoods in the hizzy?”

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.
