Space porn: These images are (quite literally) out of this world
ST. MORITZ, Switzerland (AP) — Lindsey Vonn won a World Cup super-G on Saturday to stay unbeaten in four speed races this season.
The American racer timed 1 minute, 2.71 seconds, beating World Cup overall leader Tina Maze of Slovenia by 0.37 seconds.
Julia Mancuso of the United States was third, 1.01 behind Vonn.
Vonn earned her 57th career World Cup win, second all-time, and her 20th in super-G.
Vonn swept the three-race downhill and super-G program last weekend at Lake Louise, Alberta, but was put under pressure by failing to score here Friday when Maze won the super-combined.
The race was run on a shortened course after a forecast of strong wind up the mountain.

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.

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.
