Space porn: These images are (quite literally) out of this world
Screenwriter Aaron Sorkin today revealed that his upcoming Steve Jobs biopic will focus on three major milestones in Jobs’ career: the original Macintosh, his venture with NeXT and the 2001 debut of the iPod. ”This entire movie is going to be three scenes and three scenes only that all take place in real time,” Sorkin said at the Hero Summit, an event presented by Newsweek and the Daily Beast. ”A half hour for you in the audience is the same as a half hour to a character on the screen.”
Sorkin also revealed the last time he spoke with the late technologist, Jobs wanted Sorkin to write a Pixar movie. ”I didn’t think I’d be able to make an inanimate object talk,” Sorkin said. Jobs responded, “Once you make them talk, they won’t be inanimate anymore.”

The Soyuz TMA-10M
The Soyuz TMA-10M headed towards the International Space Station with crew members from Expedition 37 onboard.
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.
Sunrise from Expedition 36
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.
