Space porn: These images are (quite literally) out of this world
MILAN (AP) — Sharon Stone has helped to raise more than $1.1 million (€846,000) for AIDS research during Milan Fashion Week.
Hours after she was taken briefly to a hospital after feeling unwell following a Fendi runway show, the 54-year-old Stone looked fine as she enticed higher bids at the amfAR Foundation for AIDS Research charity auction Saturday night.
Designer Roberto Cavalli paid €35,000 ($45,500) for a new interpretation of the Bocca sofa shaped like lips after Stone reclined on the piece, demonstrating its comfort.
A 2004 Damien Hirst etching of nine colored dots called “Quene 1-AM” netted €110,000 ($143,000) while a Robert Rauschenberg print “Site” earned €40,000 ($52,000).
The foundation said most of the money it raises is used for research toward finding a cure for AIDS.

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.
