Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein told the BBC the following in a radio interview:
I witnessed prime minister saying to a group of people, myself included, that Mitt Romney had that unique distinction of uniting all of England against him with his various remarks. On behalf of my love of England, I have to support the president [Barack Obama] who is anything but making faux pas.
Cameron was last seen contributing to the #romneyshambles meme during Romney’s whirlwind international gaffe tour. Romney said he thought London might not be ready for this year’s Summer Olympics and the prime minister replied, “Of course it’s easier if you hold an Olympic Games in the middle of nowhere.”

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.
A pair of NanoRacks CubeSats -- nanosattelite spacecrafts carrying experiments -- were launched by Expedition 38.
