Space porn: These images are (quite literally) out of this world
NEW YORK (AP) — A team of police officers and FBI agents are digging up a basement in Manhattan as part of a decades-old investigation into the disappearance of a 6-year-old boy.
The missing child is Etan Patz (AY’-tahn PAYTS), who vanished in 1979 after leaving his family’s SoHo home for a short walk to his school bus stop.
NYPD spokesman Paul Browne says the building being searched is about a block from where the family lived.
He says the excavation is the result of a recently-ordered review of the case by the Manhattan district attorney.
Investigators expect to be at the site for two to three days, examining a space that now sits beneath a clothing store.
Authorities didn’t say what evidence led them to that location.

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.
