Space porn: These images are (quite literally) out of this world
AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) — The putt rolled straight toward the cup, and Louis Oosthuizen was certain the ball was going to drop in.
So, of course, it didn’t.
On the next playoff hole, Bubba Watson made perhaps the only shot more spectacular than that double eagle that gave Oosthuizen the lead for all but the final seconds of the Masters on Sunday.
Instead of the green jacket, Oosthuizen will have to settle for an albatross.
“It’s fine,” Oosthuizen said. “He hit an unbelievable shot there. I played well. This is not one where I felt like I played badly. Great stuff to him, he deserves it.”

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.
