Space porn: These images are (quite literally) out of this world
1. Wikileaks’ MasterCard commercial
At first I thought this was a parody, but then changed my mind and thought it was real. Then it turned out to be a fake after all. Oh, that Assange!
2. The “Party Down” initiative
It seems that today is “Party Down” Day , in an Internet effort to make a movie of the Starz’s comedy happen. (How well has that worked out for “Arrested Development”?) Still, it was an amazing show, and this video roundup of the best lines from Roman (played by Martin Starr) inspires the question… “Are we having fun yet?”
3. Dueling comedians
Last night, Conan’s people “accidentally” booked overbooked two comedians. Watch Jon Dore and Rory Scovel perform their bits simultaneously — creating an almost harmonious duet of stand-up shtick.
4. Jean-Claude Van Damme really needs to make rent
The action hero is starring in this wacky Russian comedy called “Rzhevskiy vs. Napoleon,” which might end up being his best role to date.
5. “Real Housewife of New York” Countesss LuAnn’s new “hit” single, “Chic C’est la Vie”
It’s so much sing-talking, I never thought I’d yearn for the days of “Money Can’t Buy You Class.“
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.
