Space porn: These images are (quite literally) out of this world
SEATTLE (AP) — Police in central Washington say a female relative of one of the soldiers accused by Georgia authorities of killing a fellow soldier and plotting a range of anti-government acts came to them with concerns about the man almost a year ago.
Wenatchee police Sgt. John Kruse said the woman, who didn’t want to be named, called police in September 2011 to relay her worries about Isaac Aguigui.
She told police that Aguigui’s wife had died in July 2011 under suspicious circumstances, and the soldier had bought 15 firearms while on leave from the military.
Kruse said police confirmed Aguigui had purchased the weapons, including some semi-automatic rifles, but he did so legally.
Aguigui is one of four Army soldiers based at Fort Stewart in Georgia who have been charged by state authorities with malice murder, felony murder, criminal gang activity and other charges.

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.
