Space porn: These images are (quite literally) out of this world
EL PASO, Texas (AP) — A Dallas trucker detained for eight months in Mexico on accusations that he smuggled assault rifle ammunition is expected to return Friday to the United States.
Jabin Bogan was released from a Mexican prison about two weeks ago but was later detained by immigration authorities. Attorney Carlos Spector tells The Associated Press that a plane carrying Bogan is expected to land in the Mexican border city of Juarez Friday afternoon. Bogan is scheduled to speak at a press conference in El Paso, Texas, a few hours later.
Bogan was arrested in April with 268,000 rounds of ammunition. He says he took a wrong turn off a highway in El Paso and accidentally crossed into Mexico.
He tried to turn back, but was directed to an inspection area and arrested.

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.
