Space porn: These images are (quite literally) out of this world
LAS VEGAS (AP) — A company that bought the rights to convert Wayne Newton’s Las Vegas home into a museum is suing the entertainer over allegations that he unreasonably delayed the project to ensure it never opens.
The lawsuit filed by CSD LLC seeks to have the Newton family immediately vacate their home to allow the $50 million project honoring the Las Vegas legend’s music career to move forward.
Under the deal, Newton, his wife and his daughter agreed to move to a newly constructed $2 million home on the estate so their mansion could be converted into a museum.
The lawsuit claims the family has refused to relocate or turn over their personal memorabilia. It also claims Newton sexually harassed a young female employee.
Messages were left seeking comment from Newton’s lawyer and publicist.

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.
