Space porn: These images are (quite literally) out of this world
PHOENIX (AP) — A Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Phoenix home that had been slated for demolition will apparently survive under a new owner.
Real estate broker Robert Joffe (JAH’-fee) says the current owners have reached an agreement to sell the early 1950s home to a buyer who wants to preserve and restore it.
Joffe says the property is being sold for the listing price of nearly $2.4 million.
He says the buyer has philanthropic motivations and wishes to remain anonymous.
The home that Wright designed for his son and daughter-in-law went on the market Oct. 22.
The current owners had planned to demolish the home in order to redevelop the 2-acre property. They put the house up for sale instead after the demolition plan stirred controversy, particularly among the architectural community.

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.
