Space porn: These images are (quite literally) out of this world
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — This year’s Grammy Awards nominations will come with a Southern accent.
The Recording Academy is moving its annual live nominations concert special to Nashville, Tenn. The special will air live Dec. 5 on CBS.
This is the fifth time the Recording Academy has held “The Grammy Nominations Concert Live,” but the first outside Los Angeles.
Recording Academy President/CEO Neil Portnow says it made sense to look at Nashville for a number of reasons, including the city’s prominence in the world music scene.
The Recording Academy will reveal nominees in several categories and feature performances by former Grammy winners and nominees.
The 55th annual Grammy Awards will be held Feb. 10 in Los Angeles.

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.

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.
